Oh, I know that, and I agree. Humor is just a coping mechanism to ride out the inevitable storm. Any way you look at it the ride ahead is rocky for as far as the eye can see. Hold on, let go and keep a sense of humor whenever possible.

What everyone fails to realize is that Obama and Trump were a tag-team act;  Obama brought Hope and Trump brings Change.

Hope-man brought us record levels of deportations and lobbyist benefaction while Change-boy is a gameshow host who apparently has determined the the change needed is the complete destruction of the dignity of the office.

I miss Hope-man already and am already tired of the inane "Nazi" comparisons.


Most importantly I'm renewing my efforts at local politics because that's where shit really matters.

What political agenda would that be?  Despising Bush for the Iraq war...Abu Ghraib...turning America into a police state since 9/11?  Fuck Barry Soweto as well. IRS targeting groups with differing views, race-baiting and NOT ONE GODDAMN BANKSTER IN JAIL! Barry was a fucking neocon...it isn't alt-right...it's an alt-universe. 

Denying reality...seriously?  Useful idiots (most recent example women march) really believe their own narrative and stopped worrying about the things that really matter like deficits, endless war, porous borders, Constitutional rights...oh, and most recently reported that $20k in regulatory cost burden for each worker in the U.S.   

I didn't vote Trump BUT he has all the right enemies. Looking at many of those lined up against him makes me a fan.  Barry might have been the "hope" but after 72 hrs at "the desk" it's looking like Trump will be the "change".

TODAY 11am: Trump signs executive order; White House schedule  provide no details on what order may entail.

Regulatory costs?  Like those speed limit signs, OSHA Inspectors and FBI budgets?

Smoke and Fucking mirrors, our regulatory costs are low and we have one of the most productive work forces in the world.  Regulations are how you catch crooks, anti-regulation is effectively anti-enforcement and why the fuck do you hate our cops you unpatriotic bastard?

I have no idea, and at this point I don't care. I only know that you are willing to accept process errors so significant and fundamental that, for me, it negates the significance of anything else you might say or think.

I have nothing personal against you, and you might be, taken as a whole, a fine fellow. But your political thinking is infantile.

Got this from a friend in Ohio.  I guess they didn't all vote for Trump.

The 15 Warnings Signs of Impending Tyranny MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2017 As tyrants take control of democracies, they typically:

1.  Exaggerate their mandate to govern – claiming, for example, that they won an election by a landslide even after losing the popular vote.

2.  Repeatedly claim massive voter fraud in the absence of any evidence, in order to restrict voting in subsequent elections.

3.  Call anyone who opposes them “enemies.”

4.  Turn the public against journalists or media outlets that criticize them, calling them “deceitful” and “scum.”

5.  Hold few if any press conferences, preferring to communicate with the public directly through mass rallies and unfiltered statements.

6.  Tell the public big lies, causing them to doubt the truth and to believe fictions that support the tyrants’ goals.

7.  Blame economic stresses on immigrants or racial or religious minorities, and foment public bias and even violence against them.

8.  Attribute acts of domestic violence to “enemies within,” and use such events as excuses to beef up internal security and limit civil liberties.

9.  Threaten mass deportations, registries of religious minorities, and the banning of refugees.

10. Seek to eliminate or reduce the influence of competing centers of power, such as labor unions and opposition parties.

11. Appoint family members to high positions of authority

12. Surround themselves with their own personal security force rather than a security detail accountable to the public.

13. Put generals into top civilian posts               

14. Make personal alliances with foreign dictators.

15. Draw no distinction between personal property and public property, profiteering from their public office.

Consider yourself warned.

Raul Hilberg described this process in simple five steps, as practiced since humans turned hind legged.

Identify an evil group.

Confiscate their property and nullify their civil rights.

Demonize, ostracize and confine the group to physically isolated ghettos, out of public view.

Concentrate them in prisons and camps where they have no rights, can't vote or have children, and systematically exploit their labor.

Kill them, either by withholding food and medical care or by deliberate murder.

I can't tell if you're suggesting that I'm playing games which involve creating a double identity, or if you're suggesting that someone else has done so and are challenging me to figure out who it is. Your writing is ambiguous, and could be read either way.

If it's the former, all I can say is "Damn, you caught me." and "Does my other identity post tons of pictures too, or is that simply part of my clever cover story?"

If it's the latter, I'd say "Don't know, and don't care."

Several injuries have been reported and at least four banks have been vandalized after demonstrators marched away from the scene of a violent protest at the canceled speaking event by controversial far-right writer and speaker Yiannopoulos on the University of California at Berkeley campus.

If those are college students, then they deserve to be shot by the Ohio National Guard.

It's not bias if it's true.  Unfortunately, President Trump is not a fascist, he's an oligarch.  The vermin he brought with him into the White House are the fascists.

I think your comment is accurate. But when we say "Trump", we pretty much mean the whole administration for which he is responsible, even if it's not actually his individual position.

It's interesting though that many of his appointments are distinctly NOT career politicians and are unlikely to stay in those roles for more than a few years.  In many ways he truly is "draining the swamp", I don't approve of his methods but that swamp is long over due for a good draining...

That sentiment is understandable, to see something other than career politicians carrying on business as usual.

But you are delusional if you think what is happening is draining the swamp. This is giving it away on a stick.  You don't put an oligarchy with endemic cronyism and nepotism in charge to drain anything short of a gilded 14 caret marbelized tub stopper at the top of your Manhattan tower.

Unless you'd really like to emulate a  Russian oligarchy. In that case it doesn't matter to even bother making promises to the people that the trains will run on time.
