Oh yes–they ALL SHALL FALL!

(WASHINGTON) — Democrats demanded a special investigation Tuesday into possible links between President Donald Trump’s administration and Russia, including when Trump learned that his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had discussed U.S. sanctions with a Russian diplomat. “The American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia’s financial, personal and political grip on President…

Bus THIS!

All the continuous rambling bullshit about voter fraud has brought many questions to my mind:

1. After all these months why the fuck does ASSHOLE care so much? He fucking won the “election”, just drop it. Or maybe ASSHOLE has something to hide.  Which I’m certain he does.

2. If so many voted “illegally”, how do we know they didn’t really vote for ASSHOLE and not Clinton? Because he didn’t win the popular vote? That’s only because ASSHOLE isn’t POPULAR!

I want to see PROOF that nobody voted ILLEGALLY FOR ASSHOLE. Like his daughter Trumpette or President Bannon. Because we know they are registered in more than one state.

3. Ayotte lost because she’s a nasty bitch cunt.

4. If any of you have proof that people from MA were bused into NH to vote, I’m curious to know what towns were they from in MA?  I live in a MA town of barely 2,000 people.  Most of my town voted Republican.  Were people from my town bused to NH?  How about that little town out in the Berkshires with the population of barely 500?  Anyone from there get bused to NH?

5. Why are you saying people were only bused in from MA? Many other states border NH, including ME and VT.  Maybe you should question whether anyone was bused in from those states too.

6. I also want to know where in NH these alleged “bused” in people from MA voted in NH. Did they go to Dixville Notch? Nashua? Manchester? Concord? Some remote, sparsely populated area of the White Mountains? One can’t imagine that all those voters bused into NH from MA would illegally vote at the same place!

7. Please provide us with the name of the alleged bus company who drove the people from MA to NH and then back again. Was it Peter Pan? Greyhound? Fox Tours? Some no name brand company? Please don’t tell us it was a school bus! We won’t believe you!

Then again, we don’t believe your sorry asses anyway. Because if you had any actual “proof” you would’ve revealed it by now instead of playing your fucking games! ASSHOLES!!!!!!

Never Underestimate Greatness

I wish I could say I sat and watched the entire Super Bowl last night.  But I can’t because I didn’t.

To my credit I did watch about the first twenty minutes.  I even caught several different-angled views of Lady Gaga’s performance from where I was standing in my kitchen.

I wasn’t even watching the game when the Patriots scored their first three points.  Where was I?  Several places.

I was washing up the dinner dishes in the kitchen sink.  Then I went into my bedroom to write.  Eventually my daughter came in and we worked on her book report.  I didn’t feel guilty.  My sister was in my basement browsing through Facebook and my husband was sitting at the kitchen table filing taxes.  So I wasn’t the only one not paying attention to the game.

I think it was after ten o’clock when I figured it was time to put the Patriots Christmas tree and snowglobe away for another year and get ready for bed.  I remember walking past my daughter’s bedroom where my husband had the TV on and I caught a glimpse of what looked like an excited Tom Brady sitting on the bench.  At this point in time I still believed we only had three points.  Only because my husband doesn’t say a word if something exciting happens and had not, as he usually does, kept me up-to-date on the happenings.  Because they really hadn’t been happening.

I finally got up the nerve to ask him what the score was and when he told me it was 20-28 with only a few minutes left and we had just stopped Atlanta and were getting the ball back, a little sliver of hope ran through me.  My husband told me that we had already done a two-point conversion earlier and would need to do another just to tie.  He also reminded me that no team in the Super Bowl had ever come back from being this far down and won.  I knew if there was a team who could do that, this was the team.  He also told me there had never been overtime in the Super Bowl.  That was all about to change.

So we all hung around in my daughter’s room watching the game, since my daughter had something else on the TV in the living room.  I figured if we were going down I may as well watch and, what the hell, we’d come this far.  It was nothing to be ashamed of.

Overtime rules declare the first team to score a touchdown wins.  Luckily we won the coin toss, which, if you look back on the history of the Patriots under Tom and their OT records, they usually win the coin toss in OT and they usually win the game.  I do believe if the Falcons had won the coin toss we would’ve done everything in our power to stop them and would’ve still won the game.

I never knew I could hyperventilate because of a football game but last night I swear I did.  I’ve never won the lottery but I can only imagine that the feeling would imitate the feeling I had last night as I witnessed The New England Patriots win their fifth Super Bowl.

No longer can this team, especially Tom Brady, be underestimated.

Fear The Fans

I was a fan of the New England Patriots long before ASSHOLE became “president”.

The fact that some people on the team associate with ASSHOLE is their business.  It’s their problem, not mine. That’s something that they’ll have to live with and as long as it doesn’t affect they way they play football, coach a team or run a franchise, I don’t give a shit.  Although I detest ASSHOLE, it doesn’t change the way I feel about the Patriots.

I know there are many people on the Falcons who associate with ASSHOLE as well.  Many voted for him.  Am I one to tell any Falcons fan to stop liking the Falcons because of their association?  I don’t think so.

Although our newly elected ASSHOLE will probably never take the advice of Joe Biden and “grow up”, as football fans, we should.  We’re better than that.

This is the Super Bowl, not Election Night.  Let’s act like it.

Dear World

Although I cannot, nor do not, speak for all Americans, I believe that the sentiments I express in this letter are felt by the majority of us, if not solely myself.

I’d like to think, and I hope most of the world understands the acts of one asshole and his associates do not represent the bulk of Americans.  His way is not the way the majority of us are.  His way is the way HE is, as well as most of his cronies.

I would apologize to the world for all the nuisances this oppressor of democracy has caused but I cannot. That’s his responsibility, one he will never live up to.  I will not apologize to the world on behalf of any of his supporters.  Many of them do not regret voting for him and for those that do, that’s their problem and they should be held accountable.

What I will do is stand with anyone who wishes to support Americans in speaking out against this asshole and his regime.

It is not easy being an American right now.  I have gone from what I once considered to be a “proud” American to an “embarrassed” American.  I, along with countless other Americans, sincerely hope you, as the rest of the world, do not hold the demeanor of our “leader” against us.  It’s bad enough we have to wake every day wondering, often fearing, what the little psychopath and his posse will do next to hurt us.

Thanks for listening, world.  Peace and love.

A Fellow Human Being In America

Being Human

The bullshit that has occurred in the past two days goes way beyond a matter of religion.

It goes way beyond the matter of “keeping America safe”, “making America great again”, or “making America safe again”.

What has occurred in the past two days is something that has disheartened myself and millions of others, not just in America but around the world.

Our fellow human beings have been hurt.  They have been humiliated, bullied, interrogated, detained for hours, sent back to war-torn places they were escaping from.  You name it.  Our fellow human beings have seen it all in the past forty-eight-plus hours.

Why has it come to this?  Because some ASSHOLE who calls himself “president” didn’t have the decency to think through what may happen to his fellow human beings if he just suddenly signed a document on Friday afternoon and called it a day.  He didn’t have the decency because he doesn’t give a shit about his fellow human beings.  He’s made it quite clear in the nine days he’s been “in office” that it’s all about himself.  And maybe his “administration”, whom he will probably toss under the bus eventually.

I would love ASSHOLE to use what little brains he has and put himself into the place of the human beings he hurt with his “ban”.  I would love him to experience the fear of being a woman arriving at JFK to visit her surgeon husband only to be told that she cannot enter the United States.  I wonder how he’d feel being the eighty-something-year-old gentleman in a wheelchair who was interrogated for hours.  Or if he had been someone waiting for a loved one to arrive, only to learn that they had been told to return to where they came from.  I would love for him to consider all of that.  But I know he never would because that’s not how sociopathic narcissists think.

As I always say, everything happens for a reason.  At this moment the “reason” is to bring fellow human beings together in solidarity against hate and discrimination.  There are more of us than there are of them.

Karma and We The People will catch up with ASSHOLE.  He may not know the Constitution, The Geneva Convention or the United States Refugee Act but that’s no excuse for violating them.  It is, however, great grounds for impeachment.

It can be hard to separate Mary Tyler Moore, the groundbreaking comic actor who has died at 80, from Mary Richards, the character she played on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. When she and erstwhile coworker Valerie Harper (whose MTM character had gotten a spin-off) were profiled in a TIME cover story in 1974, the…

ONE MORE

I wrote the following back on September 11, 2016, the first game of the football season:

Patriots football is FINALLY back!  What the hell took so long?

I have no clue what this season is going to bring, especially the first four games.  What I do know is that, as always, the New England Patriots are a TEAM.  They play like a TEAM, more than any other TEAM in the NFL.  There isn’t any room for individualizing on this TEAM because it isn’t about INDIVIDUALS–it’s about a TEAM!  We win as a TEAM, we lose as a TEAM.  Either you’re all IN or you’re all OUT.  Simple as that.

This was the season in which Tom Brady would miss the first four games.  The rest of the league salivated, knowing this was our end.  We were sure to lose all four of those games.  We only lost one of those four games.  We would only lose one other game.

Seventeen weeks have passed.  Jimmy G. has played.  Jacoby B. has played.  Tommy B. finished his sentence and has ripped the NFL and the commissioner a new one.  Jamie C. has come and gone.  Glenn G. came and went and came back again, then I think he left again.  Rob G. came to play and ended up having back surgery.  Marty B. is glad to be here and we sure are glad to have him.  Dion L. and Chris H. have lit it up lately.  Can’t forget Jules E. and Danny A. Even Stevie G. has kicked it up a notch.

As I said back in September–and I repeat now–THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ARE A TEAM.  They once again proved that tonight when they won their 11th AFC Championship.  This will be their 9th trip to the Super Bowl.  Seven of those trips have been under the helm of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.  To put those numbers into perspective, Tom Brady was drafted in 2000, shortly after Belichick became coach.

Seventeen years have passed.  Shall we go for ONE MORE?  YES!

If He Doesn’t Like You, Boycott HIM!

We all know that journalists have a job to inform the public of things happening in the world.  That’s what they do.

From yesterday’s fiasco of a “press conference” in which ASSHOLE didn’t act much like a human being, I guess it would be safe to say that he doesn’t like journalists of any kind.  Especially when they ask him questions he doesn’t like.

Journalists have very important things to cover for the public domain.  They don’t need to be wasting their time on some lying whiny narcissistic ASSHOLE when there are way more important things to cover.  Like moss growing on trees.

So to journalists and general members of the press, even camera crews, here is what I propose:  BOYCOTT ASSHOLE.  Completely.  BOYCOTT his “inauguration”.  Nobody’s going to watch it anyway so why waste your time covering it?

BOYCOTT any press conferences he may have (which shouldn’t be many; he prefers to hide behind Twitter). BOYCOTT the State of the Union addresses he may have (still wondering if he knows he’s supposed to have these). For any event where you would normally interview ASSHOLE or photograph him, BOYCOTT it.  Better yet: IGNORE him COMPLETELY!  Narcissists HATE that!

Seriously.  All the news outlets should get together and do this.  Newspapers included.  BOYCOTT anything and everything that has to do with ASSHOLE, sit back and enjoy the laughs.
