Who Would’ve Thunk?

You couldn’t invent this stuff.

This was inconceivable last week.

To be fully human is…to know that it’s possible to face the unimaginable and somehow put one foot in front of the other.

To imagine the unimaginable is the highest use of the imagination.

When you can’t imagine how things are going to change, that doesn’t mean that nothing will change. It means that things will change in ways that are unimaginable.

I think almost everything important that’s ever happened was unimaginable shortly before it happened.

One effect of sustained conflict is to narrow our vision of what is possible. Time and time again, conflicts are resolved through shifts that were unimaginable at the start.

…Man is a marvelous curiosity. When he is at his very very best he is a sort of low grade nickel-plated angel; at his worst he is unspeakable, unimaginable; and first and last and all the time he is a sarcasm. Yet he blandly and in all sincerity calls himself the ‘noblest work of God.’

From Jefferson to Jackson to Lincoln to FDR to Reagan, every great president inspires enormous affection and enormous hostility. We’ll all be much saner, I think, if we remember that history is full of surprises and things that seemed absolutely certain one day are often unimaginable the next.

I think the election of Donald Trump, if you want to call it an election, was unimaginable to most people, which is part of how it happened.

He was alone. The past was dead, the future was unimaginable.

Sleeping Dogs Lie

It’s what they do. As of yesterday we learned that Mike Pence, Steve Bannon, and Rheinhold Richard Priebus knew Mike Flynn was under investigation in November 2016. Though he does not lie as much as the the Insane Clown, Mike Pence lies.

Also, Pence, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell, knowing that our Insane Clown Resident is unfit for office, continue to aid and abet.

And, we have to absolutely believe our Insane Clown Resident’s “witch hunt” claims; after all he was mentored by Roy Cohn.

 

One Hundred Days Of Ineptitude

(aka The Voter’s Lament)
As you listen to him ramble on
You can see that he’s truly gone
(Way gone)
One hundred days, one hundred days, one hundred days
For surely as he won
It didn’t look like he was having fun
On the stump with Donald Trump
Demagoguing rallies full of chumps
One hundred days, one hundred days, one hundred lies
Where’s the American made shirt on his back?
Y’all knew he’s always been a hack
Not a peso for his wall
Wearing shirts made in China after all
There’s not one
there’s not two
there’s not three
No, there’s not four
O’ lord, could there possibly be more?
(Ivanka, Jared, Junior, Eric, Tiffany, Melania, Barron…)
If you miss the drain he’s fixated on
You’ll know that swamp will not be gone
(Heard any sucking sounds lately?)
One hundred days, one hundred days, one hundred days
(elected to improve his handicap in one hundred days; gonna take way more than that)

The King’s Speech

Hahahhaha here piggy piggy....
The 140 character rule rule. No not the number of appointments in the new administration. But certainly enough characters to Tweet out the length and breadth of thought that courses through our Insane Clown Resident’s pre-dawn agitated mind.
And it’s certainly contagious. Sean Spicer’s ignorance is on display daily as evidenced in his command of the language; in his communication skills.
Rex Tillerson seems brilliant. At least he keeps his mouth shut, mostly.
Karen Pence’s girly man, Mike, with furrowed brow reaches for his inner “Lincoln” as he invokes shields and swords.
And Paul Ryan’s numbers have never added up, though they consistently exceed 140 characters.
This week’s circle of confusion surrounding the Carl Vinson Strike Group even ensnared McMaster and Mattis; “prudent” officials misspeaking when called on to speak Trump/speak. Complicit.
In this age of Twitter an administration of Tweeting twits run amuck, their ignorance on full display reflected in the way they speak.

White House Grifters

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ivanka-trump-interview-what-it-means-to-be-complicit/

Ivanka, as in Donald’s eldest.

Ivanka, as in Jared and Ivanka.

Ivanka, as in the West Wing.

Ivanka, as in an advisor to the president.

Ivanka…

Complicit.

Conflicts Of Interest.

Amidst bombs bursting in air…

Circles of confusion.

The dame is always an integral part of the con.

Actions and reactions.

Our universe is expanding as we speak. Dark energy at work.

Our democratic republic is contracting as we speak. Dark energy at work.

When he voted yes for Justice Eleanor Kagan, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) noted that “elections have consequences.” Graham has reiterated this point time and again, in 2008 and 2012, and now in 2017. Though a mixed bag on many issues I care about, Lindsey Graham has enough creds left in the senate to call out hypocrisy practiced on both sides of the aisle.

Yet when push comes to shove, he’d rather point his finger than attempt to rectify the matter. It’s why we had a year long vacancy on the Supreme Court resulting in a “stolen” seat.

What gives?

Dark energy.

Dark energy is pushing things apart at an ever accelerating rate.

Dark Energy, like cholesterol, can be good or bad. Either you can choose to take the short view or the long view.

Taystee Tweets

When I was a kid growing up in Brooklyn Taystee Bakers advertised that their bakers were busy at work while we slept.

Now we have Donald Trump (aka Tweety), whose busy little hands are tweeting while we sleep.
