woke up to snow again

thinking about that person I was talking to who insisted that no matter how bad our current president has turned out to be, it would be SO MUCH WORSE if Hillary Clinton had become president.  Because of corruption & emails & Benghazi & Bill.

& I couldn’t even argue with that because I just can’t anymore.  I just won’t.

If you’re the kind of person who would rather have chaos & confusion on a daily basis than a functioning government JUST BECAUSE you didn’t like the person for some stupid reason that was drilled into your head for the last 25 years … there is no talking to you.

There’s no talking to a whole bunch of you.

There’s a current talking point, which goes that we are “more divided” than we have ever been & that “we need to start talking to one another” & that “social media” has made the “divisions” in our society worse than ever & yadda yadda yadda.  What a load of bollocks.

When has American society NOT been divided?  I mean, really?  When I was growing up, there was civil rights activity on the TV & then the anti-war demonstrations.  Clearly, people were divided bitterly on these issues.  In my reading of history, Americans have been divided by important issues many times in the past – remember the Civil War? – going back to the very first Europeans who came here.  The Puritans in New England are probably the best example of a society who created divisions simply by their religious intolerance.  It can be argued that the human condition is one of divisiveness, because of people’s natural tendency to see their own family & tribe as the very best & others as inferior.

However, this doubling down on “anyone but Hillary” in the face of utter ruin of what was once a nice place to live is really annoying, to say the least.  Just like waking up to snow on April 10!  Just say you’re wrong already!  Just fucking admit it!

It’s Not a F*ckng Movie!

I read this the other day & it pissed me right the fuck off.  It came up on my Facebook feed a few minutes ago & triggered my rage again.  It’s not like the right-wing trolls that have been attacking the Parkland kids & their political activism.  This attack is something different. It paints them as “Hunger Games” characters, as not-quite-real-made-for-the-screen personas that are going to have a “Hollywood ending”.

IT’S NOT A FUCKING MOVIE!  THIS IS REAL FUCKING LIFE!

It’s so fucking true, the liberals are as bad as the conservatives.  STFU already!

Here’s the link to the article that’s pissing me off:

Transwoman who heckled Rose McGowan is a ‘known sexual predator’ claim women

But it’s all about they “like like women” so they are women & yadda yadda yadda

once a predator, always a predator … changing your gender doesn’t change a fucking thing

Rose McGowan was FABULOUS in this exchange

Andi Dier (facebook)

A male audience member who self-identifies as a ‘transgender woman’ disrupted a New York booksigning by the #MeToo movement’s Rose McGowan on Wednesday night.

See the footage here:

And here:

The event was to promote McGowan’s new memoir ‘Brave’. McGowan is best known for exposing the crimes of serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.

Now the transwoman involved, identified as Andi Dier of Long Island, NY, is being accused of serial sexual assault by multiple women who claim Dier sexually assaulted them when they were teens.

One of the women posted a message to Rose McGowan today:

Gender – a Feminist, Environmentalist Critique

I could NOT agree more. Common sense is a rarity nowadays & this is filled with it. & REAL FACTS … not magical thinking & wishful dreams.

What does Gender Even Mean?

Gender has until recently been a word used to describe societal expectations of people based on their sex. Feminists and sociologists still regard this as the correct definition of the word. We are all familiar with ‘gender roles’ signifying stereotypical responsibilities of a man or woman – e.g. a woman cooks, a man is the breadwinner. Most people would recognise these stereotypes to be sexist, the idea that women are worse at maths or enjoy playing with Barbie dolls more than trains is pure misogyny. Yet a recent phenomenon has been the use of the word gender to represent some innate quality! Little boys don’t wear dresses – if they want to they must really be a girl! This is completely backward thinking, feminists have fought against these absurd stereotypes for years. I am a woman because of my chromosomes and my reproductive organs…

I don’t give a flying fig what you think …

I have to say I fucking agree. I said all during the campaign that they were working together to elect HER & that’s why she was campaigning at 50% or less. Yeah, she won the popular vote but if she had actually WORKED to get votes in, say, the Rust-Belt States, maybe we wouldn’t have this shit-storm right now.

& just maybe if the DNC had some balls & hadn’t hamstrung Bernie Sanders, we’d have President Sanders in the White House right now. Ya know, maybe another set of problems but it wouldn’t be this load of crapola EVERY FUCKING DAY.

Homeless on the High Desert

Fuck you and your belittling, condescending denigrating unicorn-shit.

The weasel democrats are as complicit in Our Tea Pot Dictator’s utter rending of the social fabric as the retards. Had you smug assholes not chosen to disregard the tens of millions of voices yelling from the tops of their lungs DON’T DO IT! and run a candidate because “it’s her turn” that couldn’t beat the friend of the family who was actively campaigning to get her elected we wouldn’t be in this situation. If you hadn’t run Clinton, Trump wouldn’t have made it past the first debate, if he were in it at all. You are equally responsible. I stand by that.

You keep talkin’ shit to me and I will beat your ass as readily as a republican’s.

You are all a clear and present danger to my grandchildren’s future.
