Taking It to the Limit

You have to wonder what it will take.

Let’s set aside the polls showing that half of white folks still plan on voting for Donald Trump, despite everything. Last we checked, he was holding a ten-point lead over Biden with the melanin-deficient — half his 2016 margin among haoles, so there’s been some improvement.

The rest? Lost souls. You may have encountered a few on Facebook.

So when we wonder what it will take, we’re not talking about them. We’re talking about the rest of us. And we’re asking, well, we’re asking how long the rest of us will put up with this shit.

Or at least enough of us.

The 39 million citizens of California share two senators among them. So do the 1 million citizens of Montana. That ain’t right, y’know?

Donald Trump lost the popular vote in 2016 by nearly three million citizens, yet he still took office. That ain’t right, either.

And Donald Trump and the Senate are about to install their third Supreme Court justice, increasing the likelihood of outlawing abortion, eliminating Obamacare, throwing this election, and god knows what else.

That really ain’t right.

So what will it take for the citizens of the United States to rise as one and say fuck this shit?

Well, we dunno.

We’re familiar with calls to action among lefty types, and it’s not like the nation has been lacking for protests during this covid-smothered year. And while they have been necessary to bring attention to problems that non-protestors would prefer to ignore, they’re not yet sufficient to bring about the deep change that’s required to get us out of this mess.

We’re looking at something bigger. Something massive. Something that won’t go away until grievances are redressed.

And there’s the problem. If your skin is as pink as a bunny’s nose, if you’ve been paying the rent and putting food on the table throughout the past four years, well, maybe you’ve been shouting at your news-delivery device of choice, but shit hasn’t been real, y’know? We may yearn for seeing certain heads on pikes, but we live in a comfy place in a nice city, and life hasn’t changed all that much for us, not really.

Now imagine someone like us who doesn’t wallow in every tidbit of bad news.

Complacency doesn’t get your butt off the couch. It doesn’t get you out of your shell and out in the streets. It doesn’t get you burning the phone lines to your elected but electorally timid representatives.

We grew up during the Vietnam war. Our babysitter had a map of that country on her closet door. The map was marked with locations her son had been. Her son was an Army cook. Drafted, we presume.

That shit’s real. More real than Walter announcing the weekly death counts on the teevee.

And, we fear, that’s what it’s gonna take, an unavoidable reality touching the lives of people who haven’t been touched by anything yet, even those whose hearts — and votes — are in the right place. We already know we can’t have nice things, but those are things we don’t have anyway. It’s the things we do have that will need to be taken away for a substantial number of people to finally see what’s been happening all along.

And by then, it’s gonna be that much harder getting them back.

So yeah, we’re saying we want a revolution. Of some kind. A revolution in attitude would do nicely. But what we’re seeing isn’t enough to make one happen.

Even now. As real as shit is, it just ain’t real enough for enough people. Some days we wonder whether it will ever be.

The most grotesque aspect of the entire ordeal of the last four+ years is that ~42% of Americans cannot recognize basic human decency and are incapable of comprehending what it means to be a responsible member of society.

They proclaim themselves “Christians,” yet totally rebuke the Golden Rule and the teachings of Jesus in favor of idolizing Prezinazi AntiChrist.
And we still have to beg and plead for people to vote.

It’s like being trapped in a psychotic abusive family that’s determined to kill you.

We need better Americans than the malicious, toxic white trash we’re condemned with.

@¡Andrew!: And as much as everyone is breathlessly reporting that Mango Mussolini paid $750 in taxes in 2016 and no taxes for 10 of the 15 previous years will just make his base love him more for being so smart to avoid paying taxes.

Or wouldn’t it be completely fucking historically bonkers if Germany saves the US from fascism this time?

“Just hours after the worst story about President Donald Trump dropped from the New York Times, former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale barricaded himself in a Florida home with a gun threatening to harm himself.”

Yep, that’s a totally normal campaign-thing to do…

Time for Prezinazi AntiChrist and Melanoma to hit the bunker!

10:42 pm • Sunday • September 27, 2020

@¡Andrew!:
It’s not paranoia when people are out to get you. The pressure of failure and said consequences of failure will get to anyone.

Jeezus, we’ve moved from Arrested Development to Law & Order: Banana Stand.

@¡Andrew!:
No bunker in the world can save them from angry mobsters who just lost a huge chunk of their money.

Can’t wait to hear how Tr666p’s decades of tax evasion are the fault of Democrats, immigrants, and hummuhseckshals.

12:04 am • Monday • September 28, 2020

Now we just need to add the piss-hookers tapes, and we’ll have the perfect split screen for Serena Joy Barrett’s illegitimate sham “confirmation” hearings.

@ManchuCandidate: In CBC news, Rosemary Barton in gonna nail JTru when she mentions the WE charity, bwahahahahahah!!!

Oh, man—how can they even with that ridiculous bullshit given what’s going down next door…

12:24 am • Monday • September 28, 2020

@¡Andrew!:
Because they’re desperate.

Also doesn’t help that Tory leader Dipshit “Top None” O’Toole got the CoVID while not social distancing or wearing a mask at a function.

11:44 am • Monday • September 28, 2020

@¡Andrew!: Speaking of piss and Shitler, Biden’s campaign spokesperson hits it out of the park with her response to Donny’s calls for drug testing before the debate:

“Vice President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words. If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it,” Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, said in a Sunday statement to Politico. “We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop COVID-19.”

11:51 am • Monday • September 28, 2020

And it looks like $hitler’s tax scams were so blatantly obvious that the incompetent IRS was his defacto accomplice, jeezus cuh-ryst!!!

11:52 am • Monday • September 28, 2020

@SanFranLefty: Urine trouble, Tr666p!

The A.S.S. Tr666ptanic is going down!!!

2:40 pm • Monday • September 28, 2020

Police have released body cam footage of now former Tr666p campaign manager Brad Parscale’s arrest, and whoa IT’S A DOOZY.

Is Parscale:
Shirtless? Check. (Nice tits, Brad! Now stop skipping leg day).
Chilling next to his monster truck? Check.
Casually fondling a beer can while bloviating at the cops? Check.
Tackled by the cops and arrested in the most humiliating way possible? Oh, check and mate!!!

OMFG it’s #PeakFloridaMan winning the Florida Man Olympics!

@ManchuCandidate: “I mean, sure Minister, our heavily armed and violent next door neighbor is collapsing in a fascist terrorist attack allied with Russia against their own people, but let’s talk about Paragraph 23, subsection J of the WE report in which there’s a comma when obviously it should be a period…
J’accuse—Ça a fait scandale!”

8:32 pm • Tuesday • September 29, 2020

So what are y’all stress eating/drinking/smoking tonight during the debate?

9:44 pm • Tuesday • September 29, 2020

@SanFranLefty: Doctor Who re-runs and a 2015 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

10:03 pm • Tuesday • September 29, 2020

Scotch!

DIE! TRUMPFUCK!, FUCKING! DIE!

10:20 pm • Tuesday • September 29, 2020

Twisted fuck money launderer, Biden needs to rip his arm off and beat him to death with the wet end.

10:34 pm • Tuesday • September 29, 2020

Fuck! Die!

@¡Andrew!: Not bad for a web developer, really.

@SanFranLefty: I enjoyed a nice nap, and now I’m catching up on the shitshow freakouts.

10:56 am • Wednesday • September 30, 2020

I feel like we should do a bed check this morning.

1:56 pm • Wednesday • September 30, 2020

Biden needs to drop the avuncular crap and rip out Trump’s eyes and skull fuck him during the next debate.

2:02 pm • Wednesday • September 30, 2020

Why the fuck is this asshole not being addressed a money launderer to monsters? Just asking Trump about exactly who underwrote his DB notes would have changed everything, If I had to chose, this would be the only question I’d have Biden put on the table during the debate. Trump got to rave about Hunter Biden 144 times a minute. Even his retarded son Don Jr pointed to HB in the follow up

For fuck;s sake

10:28 pm • Wednesday • September 30, 2020

Wow, the DC insider media really does seem to be shitting themselves over this debate fiasco; these are the people that are “professionally surprised.”

Can you believe the US has spent decades lecturing–other–countries on how to conduct their elections, jeezus cuh-ryst.

They must be panicking to adopt some kind of new rules to prevent Prezinazi AntiChrist from declaring Civil War II: Führery Road at the next psych-ward break-out, aka “debate.”
(rolls eyes)

Well, good luck with that fuckers, you normalized this freakish thug and his gang. He’s like a lobotomized version of Lex Luthor or the Penguin.

1:45 am • Thursday • October 1, 2020

If fuckface is going to be abusive, there is no reason for Biden to attempt to be reasonable. Just ask Trump why he is addicted to phone sex with Vladimir Putin. Ask him what he’s going to do if VTB Bank won’t underwrite his refinance of DB loans in the fall. Ask him if he gets sexually excited by murdering hundreds of thousands of Americans.

9:42 pm • Thursday • October 1, 2020

New polling out of SC confirms Miss Lindsey knows she’s cold product.

Time to defeat $hitler’s snarling poodle.

Go Jaime Harrison!

12:14 am • Friday • October 2, 2020

Hope Hicks Sick with CoVID-ick.

Trump bans hope from his Campaign.

@nojo:
Just hope everyone who attended the debate from Joe’s campaign is getting tested right the fuck now.

11:53 am • Friday • October 2, 2020

@ManchuCandidate: Testing in progress, per Politico.

12:04 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

MSNBC: Biden’s negative.

12:31 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

The coronavirus is gonna have to compete with the terminal syphilis bacteria currently fucking themselves to death in that toxic shithole between Tr666p’s ears.

12:44 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

CHECK THE COFFIN. If they claim he’s croaked, it’s more likely he’s absconded to Ru$$ia or $audi Arabia with the billions he and his cronies have looted from the Treasury.

Or he’ll be in the conga line with Ken Lay and Osama bin Laden at the Bush family compound in Paraguay.

12:51 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

@SanFranLefty: Oops. “Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett met with Lee on Tuesday and neither of them wore face masks.”

Shit ain’t as interesting as shit’s gonna get.

Karma-tober?

Also, she’s now Notorious Amy CoVID Broadcaster

1:36 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

@nojo: And the president of Notre Dame who was glad-handling in the Rose Garden without a mask.

As I saw on Twitter last night, “Looks like RBG won her first argument in front of God.”

1:48 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

It ain’t Cocktober, but it’ll do.

2:06 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

@nojo: Update: ACB had the Rona earlier this year, gets tested daily, tested negative this morning.

3:03 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

@nojo: It’s still an open question whether people can get variations of the virus multiple times, like the flu, right?

4:03 pm • Friday • October 2, 2020

@¡Andrew!: Yup. But she is getting tested daily — so we’re told — so I’m willing to let that one slide for now.

Meanwhile, I’m discovering what I thought were clear-headed FB friends still insisting the POTUS diagnosis is a sham because it gets him out of the debates or something. The paranoid imagination knows no bounds.
