The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 4: A Whole Lotta Backpfeifengesicht

First things first, I love that the Germans have a word for just about everything.

Backpfeifengesicht: a face in need of a slap

Second of all, there may not be a week 5. I am sorely tempted to just bury my head in the clouds and binge watch reality TV. I need a holiday from real. We’ll see! (more…)

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 3



This week’s episode is shorter because the bullshit is occurring at a rate that not even I can (or really want to) keep up with.


3-0

Trump loses appeal court bid to reinstate travel ban!! 

Fuck yeah! Of course, the big baby had to have his say via Twitter.


Apparently, he won’t rush to appeal, so.

The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 2


It’s been another crazy week full of lies, lies, lies and more lies and the most bizarre Black History Month address I’ve ever read. Oh and Trump wants women to ‘dress like women’ probably so that he has maximum pussy access.

Ongoing Development

The Muslim Ban™ is also now in jeopardy.

Federal Judge James Robart ruled against government lawyers’ claims that US states did not have the standing to challenge Mr Trump’s executive order.

Trump’s response:

Well, his grammar is good at least. Everything else reeks of bullshit.

They filed an appeal and failed miserably. SAD.


Sigh.


In this week’s Donald Duck segment (wherein Trump dodges another campaign policy): he reneged his pledge to lower the price of drugs.

On Jan. 11, Trump said: “Pharma has a lot of lobbies, a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power. And there’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly.”

Naturally, he’s now changed his mind.


When They Go Low, We Go High

Sally Yates sparked controversy after she refused to back the President’s travel ban which halted admission to refugees and as well as immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.

After a federal judge ordered a review of the policy, Ms Yates announced that her staff at the Justice Department would not seek to defend it in court as she objected on grounds of conscience, writing in a letter to her staff that she wasn’t “convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities, nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.”

Naturally, Trump fired her. (more…)

Donald Trump Winning Wasn’t A Bigly Surprise

So….to recap, the next President of the United States is someone who:
– was recently on a reality TV show — he was literally lying for a living.
– bragged about sexual assault and grabbing women by the pussy.
– is being charged for the rape of a 13 year old girl
– once recorded losses of over $900m
– doesn’t pay tax because he’s smart
– uses charity donations to pay legal bills and buy gifts
– doesn’t give a shit to charity

You done fucked up, America. You’ve fucked up real good. You know it’s messed up when BBC News have some kind of help form on their site.

Watching the election as an outsider has been interesting. It’s not too long ago that voting for the black guy was considered the protest vote. People were angry with Bush, angry with the Republicans. People are always angry at something. If we could monetize anger, no one would need Trump. We would all be billionaires. Anyway, many times during the process I found myself wishing that Donald Trump would win. If only so that four years down the line, these same people are crying and blaming Trump for every miserable aspect of their lives. It’s kind of like how everyone turned on Nickelback (like they didn’t at least catch themselves singing along to ‘Rockstar’ once).

Some observations from the 2nd US Presidential debate


Once again, I watched for the entertainment factor and once again, I was left more horrified than amused or entertained. I think most people’s general feeling when it ended was this:

Taylor Swift sums up everything wrong with modern society


Well, well, well. Taylor Swift has broken up with someone again. Taylor Swift is now also supposedly dating someone again. I would ask who cares but clearly people do. So, why wouldn’t she jump from celebrity boyfriend to boyfriend when she knows that all eyes and ears will be on her?

Music Monday #1


I thought about making a separate post but there’s nothing I have to say that hasn’t already been said, in a more eloquent way, so I will just post a brief message below this point.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those in Paris, Beirut, Nigeria, those poor students at the University of Missouri and anywhere else where bad shit happened. I wish we could all just get along. One Love, y’all.

In true padadeuche fashion, Jared managed to tweet ‘#friday13th’ in the middle of everything that was happening. Sigh. I have a post on his bs saved in my drafts but I don’t think today is the right day for it.


I have decided to share my guilty pleasure songs with my loyal reader(s) every Monday. Or whenever. I have no idea what day it is. Actually, most of what I listen to these days are guilty pleasures and I will own it! I need my hype playlists. Especially in light of recent events.

I have three songs for you all today.

Ray J ft Bobby Brackin – I Hit It First

This song…speaks for itself. It’s just so hilarious to me. It has everything – catchy beat, silly but catchy lyrics, the rhyming of ‘function’ with ‘something’, a completely moronic video and some kind of low budget Lil Wayne clone. Perfect.


Blue – One Love

This song also speaks for itself.


Corbin Bleu – Push It To The Limit

This video is terrible but whatever. This song is EVERYTHING. I dare anyone to tell me otherwise.

Does anyone else have any cheesy, silly songs they listen to every day once in a while? 😛

stupid and senseless: the ‘we need more facts’ edition


I’m sure most people have heard of the situation depicted in the above video. When I saw the headline, I wasn’t surprised. Stuff like this has become par for the course sadly, especially if you’re a black person. The video itself was largely disturbing. At sixteen seconds long (the initial clip), you wouldn’t think it’d be much but my jaw literally dropped and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

I was disgusted and appalled. And angry.

Naturally, I expect others to be too, but I always forget that you cannot fix stupid and that there’s no limit to the number of heartless people in this world.

I am completely dismayed by the number of people who were saying that they needed more facts before they could condemn what this officer did. Really? He flung this girl like she was rag doll and you need more facts? Her being ‘defiant’ and refusing to leave class is a justifiable reason for this to some people? Wow. Just wow. Apparently she was on her phone briefly, and pleaded to stay in class but the teacher demanded she leave. That was her crime – being on her phone and not participating in class. That is pure and utter bullshit but almost irrelevant. Textbook case of the punishment not fitting the fucking crime.

The fact is that a grown man, who supposedly lifts weights and weights 300lbs used excessive force against someone who wasn’t resisting. Someone who is supposed to be protecting students disrupted a class and terrified the other kids. That’s all anyone should take from this. All of this ‘kids these days have an attitude’ and ‘Oh, this is what she gets for being defiant’ is so mind numbingly stupid that I don’t even know what else to say.

So, on behalf of this girl, fuck anyone defending the school and that officer. I hope that this never happens to any of your loved ones or you. And I hope that you find some common decency at some point. Ugh.

Oh and Don Lemon can shut the fuck up as well with his bullshit.

Someone needs to put this on a t-shirt..

…because the number of people not even bothering to hide their stupidity is definitely growing. Certain people need to come with a damn mute button to spare us all from their nonsense. This includes racism apologists/defenders and everyone who talked out of their mouth sideways about the terrible incident that occured in Charleston yesterday and people defending Rachel ‘I don’t understand the question’ Dolezal. Sigh.

ETA: I might just have to make a page just for stupid people.
