Just What Is "Breitbarting"?

Though O'Keefe styles himself in following the tradition of the muckrakers of a century ago, the purpose of breitbarting is quite different. Instead of exposing corruption, the purpose of brietbarting is to present the appearance of corruption. This is what O'Keefe, with diminishing success, tries to do. This was what made Breitbart famous before his untimely death.

Silver Linings in a Mushroom Cloud?

Silver linings are hard to find these days and it is apparent that we really have no clue how to proceed under this administration.

What are we to do when we realize that our country has become a threat to the well-being of the entire planet? What would happen to the human race if only idiots like Donald Trump survive the blast and resulting 'winter'?

Jobs are NOT coming back ...

even if manufacturing does. The bulk of job loss in these Divided United States is due to automation. (I love ya, Bernie Sanders), but cancleing trade deals is not going to keep or bring back jobs.

 

When people, humans started being referred to as "Human Resources" we were all in trouble. Bottom line? The people doing the work were just a resource, a means to an end. Now, with all the technological advances, those Human Resources are in lesser and lesser demand.

 

Remember all those jobs that Hair Furor saved at Carrier? Well, the company is going to invest the reward money in ... more automation! 

Legit, This Should Scare The Bejesus Out Of You. [by Colorado is the Shiznit]

 Do you like the Constitution as it's currently written? Yeah? Well, me fucking too!

If you want a funny or original Shiz diary that just slacks off and asks people to post songs and videos, so’s we can take our collective minds off The Orange Menace currently residing in the White House, sadly — this is not even remotely that.

One of my Wisconsin friends on Facebook posted a link to this absolutely terrible shit last week, and it’s taken me several days and many hours of digging and reading to come to terms with what this means, not only for residents of my Walker-Asshole state, but for the country as a whole:

Republican legislators want to make Wisconsin the 29th state to call for a convention to add a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution, raising concerns among Democrats that the state could help open the door to ultra-conservative proposals that would drastically reshape the nation’s guiding document.

Saw the base picture crop up multiple places, and then saw the photo of the headline — thought combining them with a little flair would tell the whole story with its irony intact.

We don't have a President.

We don’t have a President. We have a fraud wielding the powers of the Presidency, but he’s no President.

He never was.

When he took the Oath of Office, he was already in violation of it and he had no intention of rectifying that. He had every intention of furthering his misuse & abuse of office, heightening and deepening the corruption and conflicts of interest, and undermining the rule of law, the checks and balances against abuse of power, and anything that could impede his own selfish gain.

He is not a President. He never was.

Resist the encroaching wave of hatred and violence.

 

It's up to us, folks. All of us.

The @GOP’s increased, incessant drumbeat & incitement of racism, hatred, bigotry, misogyny has solidified into the platform of the party in power. The negative impact to the State of the Nation has been immediate, and to the shame of all US citizens. The Trump GOP is doing its literal damndest to drag this nation back into their personal, paranoid, xenophobic hell...it's now time for all remaining citizens, for all mature and civilized adults, to not only hope but to strive to undo the damage before it sets.
