    President Trump went on a long rant of a press conference yesterday where he lashed out at the press, and praised the job that he's been doing as President. He claimed that his Administration is running "like a fine tuned machine" and blamed the notion of a chaotic White House on "fake news". This word comes on the heels of one of his appointees resigning or being fired (depending on which day you ask the President), another appointee withdrawing to avoid being voted down, and a third declining his appointment, referencing the offer as a "shit sandwich".  In the presser, President Trump also told a few whoppers, including one he has often repeated even though it has been thoroughly debunked.

    Alright, before the Trump fans have a conniption, the sub headline there is a joke. Despite what you might believe if you watched this broad stumble through her confirmation hearing, she has been educated by someone. Somewhere. Someone who probably isn't rushing to the forefront right now to claim her. I scrolled back to December 18th on the Calvin College Facebook page and there was no mention of their Alumnus poised for such a prestigious governmental position. Now in fairness, I have no idea what protocol is for this sort of thing, but I would think it might get a congratulations or at least a mention, but in this case there was none.

  • We're Going To Build A Wall

    We're Going To Build A Wall

    These words rang out time and again from Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign. "We're going to build a wall," Trump would exhort his rally audiences. He would then ask them who is going to pay for the wall? "Mexico!", they would yell back. As President, Trump signed an executive order to get the wall started. This lead many people to proclaim that he was keeping his campaign promise. However, the President has asked Congress to pay for the wall with the promise that he would find a way to get the money from Mexico at some point in the future. Then the Administration floated the idea of a 20% tax on Mexican imports. Now before we get into that, let's discuss the notion of keeping promises.

    Trump Fabricates Shootings During Obama Speech

    As Trump has said, the level of violence in Chicago is through the roof. Last month, they had 40 murders in 22 days. 6 people were shot at a memorial for another victim of the gun violence on Wednesday. Despite last years spike in the murder rate, this year has gotten off to an even more violent start, with more murders-to-date than the city had seen in nearly 20 years. It's sad to see what is going on there, and President Trump has even talked about sending federal law enforcement to clean the mess up. One would think that with all of this violence and mayhem, the President wouldn't feel the need to invent murders that didn't happen. One would be wrong.

  • Trump's Voter Fraud Claims

    Trump's Voter Fraud Claims

    Back during the election process Donald Trump brought this up, and my Facebook friends who supported him started beating me over the head with this study from the PEW Research Center. Why? Because despite being a Republican, I reject the notion of widespread voter fraud. So Trump brings up the conclusion of this study, and it starts a chain reaction among his supporters. "Try to deny it now, Steve." At the time, I told the lovely Ramona that this is what truly bothers me about Trump. I expect the average guy on the street to misunderstand what some of these studies are saying, but for a Presidential Candidate this is pretty basic stuff. So, allow me to lay out my case again why Trump is wrong and I was right, and this time I will have a little affirmation from those in the know.

An Open Letter To GoDaddy

Written by Administrator.

Steve ParryAs many of you may have noticed, there have been some major changes here at The Axis of Stevil Show (dot) Com. Perhaps the most noticeable is the fact that it is working. No long delays waiting for the server, no pages loading completely blank, no modules loading with every window open making the page a mile and a half long. I had been planning on making the change that fixed it in February when my GoDaddy hosting ran out. Yesterday, however, I lost all of my patience, and made the jump. I should have done it months ago when GoDaddy was hacked resulting in the crash of many Joomla sites across the web.

At that time I was informed that my site was not affected by the hacking. It was something completely unrelated to the intrusion that caused my site to begin acting the exact same way as the ones that were affected at the exact same time that they did. I was enraged and went off on the poor customer service guy. I now sheepishly realize that he was right, so I decided to apologize in the most public of ways in the most public of place, an open letter on the World Wide interWebs.

Dear Godaddy,
A few months back I found myself in a heated argument with somebody representing your fine organization. I was rather rude and used a few choice words because the explanation that your representative gave me was entirely unfathomable. All of the evidence presented at the time seemed to show that I was right, and he was wrong.
Yesterday, while performing the daunting task of moving my website to a new server with another company, I realized that it was indeed the other way around. You, sirs, were entirely right and I was positively wrong.
I thought that the fact that my site was acting exactly like all of the other sites on your servers that were hacked at the same time that they were made it quite obvious that my site was indeed harmed by your negligence. My feelings were later confirmed as I went through every file on my site stripping bits of malicious code that carried the same signature that other victims of the hackers had claimed that they had found. This made you an all too easy target.
However, when I had some difficulty uploading my database to the new server, I had to get some support from the new hosting company, and that is when I found my error that was the true cause of the problems that I was experiencing with my website.
Upon looking back, I should have noticed it at the time, but I did not. It is now as plain on the nose on my face that your slow customer service, your constant denials of ever being wrong, and your servers that load at a speed that reminds me of a romantic night out for a couple of turtles, would have never affected me in a negative way if I would have just done the right thing when my problems started with your company and left then.
But no, for the last year I have constantly re-built databases, crunched css files, removed plugins, modules, and components, all in an effort to find some way to make my site run on your server. You would think that after a few months, I would have seen the futility of my efforts, but I plugged away at it, all the time blaming you. For this I am sorry. I hate to be wrong, but when I am I am willing to admit it.
I sincerely apologize for keeping my site on your hosting service for the last year. I apologize for all the times you had to pretend to listen to me while you were doing whatever it is you do when customers call in frustrated. I hope that we can still be friends. Maybe I could call in some night and we could chat and share a good laugh at some other idiot who thinks there is some way he can make a site run quicker than dial up on your servers. Either way, know that I have learned from my mistake and am now a better man for it.
Sincerely,
That Axis of Stevil Guy
p.s. I don't know if you guys ever under any circumstance refund the remaining money for an unused hosting service, but in my case, feel free to keep it since it was clearly my fault.

Wow, mom was right. I feel so much better now. That's the last time I pick a hosting company based on which one has the women with the least clothes in their commercials. I mean, seriously. What is this world coming to when you can't even trust a half naked blond who is trying to get you to buy nerd stuff?
