I’m OK Boomer, You’re OK Boomer

We’ve hated our generation since Disco.

You need to understand this about us, the resentment we’ve harbored for kids our age from the moment kids our age were swept away by Saturday Night Fever. You need to understand this about that moment, that pre-Internet moment, that pre-cable moment, when there was no escape from what everyone was watching and listening to.

The previous generation got the Beatles. We got stuck with the Bee Gees.

Don’t call us a Boomer.

The Agony of Defeat

But his Buluva watch survived!

Stick to sports, they say.

That’s what they told Deadspin. Deadspin, a website founded on the premise of not sticking to sports at all. They, in this case, being the guys who own Deadspin, the guys who own it after the previous guys owned it, the guys who bought it from Nick Denton, who sold it because some billionaire set out to destroy Gawker.

Stick to sports. Stick to the game.

Deadspin’s rise and fall was the game.

TRUMP! Establishes Florida Domiciliary To Dodge Judgements Against Mar-a-Lago and Survive the MAGApocalypse!

The fucking retards at the New York Times fell for the explanation that was held out under their noses and typically, exactly like the newspaper that allowed Judith Miller to go OOGA!BOOGA!WMD!WMD! on their front pages, they fucking fell for it with this ridiculous confection: “He came of age in Queens, built Trump Tower, starred in “The Apprentice,” bankrupted his businesses six times, and drew cheering crowds and angry protesters to Fifth Avenue after his election. Through it all, President Trump — rich, bombastic and to many Americans the epitome of a New Yorker — was intertwined with the city he called his lifelong home.”

Oh! Oh! Isn’t that an eversoclever lead? No, Maggie, it’s completely and utterly beside the fucking point and a deep source of shame that the newspaper can’t have a lawyer hanging around to read stuff like this before it makes the readers barph:

The salient fact is: TRUMP’S DAD’S LAWYERS KNOW THE MAGAPOCALYPSE IS AT HAND and are forcing Donniecakes to take cover under Title XV / Chapter 222 of Florida law for Homestead and Exemptions, widely known to scammers as the Sue Me to the Threshold laws. The kid is subject to so many suits and investigations now, it is all but certain he is going to be sued for every asset he has or ever imagined, including the shithouse at Mar-a-Lago.

Things Fall Apart

Time was when we thought it would be enough to keep a list.

Keep track of every policy he enacted, every policy he reversed, and come 12:01 pm January 20, 2021, switch them all back.

We actually thought that. We knew it wouldn’t undo all the damage he’s done, but at least it would help contain it.

It’s not gonna work that way.

BRIDE! O’ PUTIN! Eagerly Enables Post-Soviet Dystopian Horror to SKULL! FUCK! AMERICA!

It is one thing to rip out nations’ eyes to blind them – and, hey, there is nothing wrong with that is you’re that sick and twisted and have the wherewithal to entertain yourself that way – but SKULL! FUCKING! AMERICA! is treasonous, evil enterprise and should be rewarded with decades of righteous psychological and physical torture and hideous, disfiguring punishments that can shatter the psyche of even stone-cold imbeciles like BRIDE! O’ PUTIN! himself, Cosplay President Donald Trump!

Only BRIDE! O’ PUTIN!, dedicated to the advancement of a criminally insane dystopian monstrosity like Russia could propose the destruction of the Open Skies Treaty which enables 16 US overflights to Russian territory per year to monitor military adventurism of the evil shithouse horror such as its rape of Crimea.

According to the Daily Beast, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, sent a letter to National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien on Monday, expressing his alarm over Trump’s reported plans to leave the treaty. “I am deeply concerned by reports that the Trump Administration is considering withdrawing from the Open Skies Treaty and strongly urge you against such a reckless action… American withdrawal would only benefit Russia and be harmful to our allies’ and partners’ national security interests,” Engel wrote. “… The United States should prepare for the challenge that Russia presents—not abandon mechanisms that provide the United States with an important tool in maintaining surveillance on Russia.”

The New Normal

Which one was it? Oh, right, this one:

“Trump Busts Another Norm; GOP Responds with Silence, Support”

That was the AP headline the day Trump called on China to investigate Joe Biden. The Financial Times weighed in with a full accounting: Of the 53 Republican senators, “not one of the members responded via their staff to express any concern”.

And this was news.

It was December 2016 when news broke that, as the Washington Post put it, “Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House”. It was December 2016 when Republicans responded with silence and support. It was December 2016 when we got a tad pissed and called them traitors for their silence.

December 2016. Almost three years ago. And not a damn thing has changed.

Only now it’s news.

Turning the Car Around

We’re arguing again.

We’re arguing about what to do. We’re arguing about how to do it. If we don’t do it this way, or that, we’re doing it wrong. We’re fucked. If we don’t do it this way (or that), it’s just gonna happen again. Like it always does.

We’re arguing again. We’re arguing with ourselves.

America is arguing.
