    Trump's Electoral Victory

    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.

NOW Defends Palin?

Written by Administrator.

National Organization of WomenIn a positively bizarre turn of events, the National Organization for Women has issued a statement in regards to Bill Maher's comments directed towards Sarah Palin. The controversy started when Bill Maher said the following on his show. “Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’. I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb twats,..." Apparently, some on the right demanded that N.O.W. come to the defense of Sarah Palin, but they waited a few days before issuing this response.

 

1. Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don't like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs. OK? Can you do that, please? If you think someone's an idiot or a danger to the country, feel free to say so, but try to keep their sex out of it. Sexist insults have an impact on all women.

Seriously? I knew that N.O.W. was perfectly comfortable putting men in their place, but who are they to tell women what to do? I suppose all of the barefoot and pregnant broads across the country will stop with this activity immediately now that the National Organization for Women has put them in their place. You heard them, ladies. Quit fighting amongst yourselves and get back in the kitchen.

Using body terms? So I'm guessing that "twat" is now an acceptable terminology for the vagina, just not for the woman it belongs to? So it would be okay for one to tell a woman to "Get her twat in gear", but not to "Get moving, twat". Duly noted. Wow, these broads over at N.O.W. are getting easier to get along with all the time.

It is apparently acceptable, however, to use this term in association with women that one does agree with politically. So, for example, if I were a fan of Hillary Clinton, I could say "Boy, that twat Hillary really showed Libya who the boss is, didn't she?"

Keep their sex out of it? I have to say I agree with the National Organization of Women. What does her being a woman have to do with anything? Why does one feel the need to point out the gender of the person they are talking about? We should all listen to the National Organization of Women, and stop feeling the need to identify people by their gender... i guess?

All of this having been said, the non-gender specific people over at the National Organization for Women went on to say this.

2. We're on to you, right-wingers:
a. You're trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women's bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc. Sorry, but we can't defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women's equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.

What? I don't mean to nit pick here, but that statement was like 70 words. How long did it take you broads to come up with that one? And as generic as it is, you don't have time to copy and paste that every day? I guess these chicks over there really worked hard on this statement, and are particularly proud of it. If so, in the time it took you to put your noodles together and structure paragraph 2, you could have re-posted paragraph 1 for the next 500 offenses. I'm just saying.

Reproductive rights attacks? Here is how N.O.W. defines their stance on "reproductive rights".

NOW affirms that reproductive rights are issues of life and death for women, not mere matters of choice. NOW fully supports access to safe and legal abortion, to effective birth control and emergency contraception, to reproductive health services and education for all women.

Even if you don't intend to click that link, you should hover it and see that the destination at the now website is a folder called "abortion". Hey N.O.W., cut the crap, okay? Abortion is not reproduction, it is to stop accidental reproduction. While it is your right to lobby for abortion, and to help women obtain legal abortions, when you can't use the correct term for what you are doing, maybe you are in the wrong line of work?

Here we have a group that defines themselves as the national organization for people of a specific sex issuing a statement to tell others to keep a persons sex out of the discussion, and telling us that they are to busy fighting for a woman's right to reproduce, which they themselves define as stopping a current case of reproduction, to further defend women under attack in the future. And they wonder why some claim that they are in this only for liberal women?
