The Real World: Trump Administration, Week 5 (re-post)


I was so tired in the past week that I basically took a few days off from the news so I don’t cover a lot this week. I’ve left out the stuff about the new DNC chairman and the latest on healthcare reform but hey, there’s always next week. (more…)

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…)

stupid and senseless: dean cain


So, there I was.

I was wondering what Dean Cain was up to. I discovered that he’s done a shit ton of Christmas movies and that…he was one of those ‘celebrities’ that voted for Trump. TRUMP!

His reasoning:

“I voted for Trump. He has my support. I wanted to change the system. I was not a fan of Hillary Clinton’s. I didn’t like her cadre of people around her, and I don’t like career politicians.”

Sounds legit. (more…)

Alternative New Year Resolutions


January is always accompanied by a bunch of new years resolutions that nobody keeps up with. Gym CEOs sit behind large desks and rub their hands with glee because ‘lose weight‘ is usually number one on the list. And fair enough, that’s a reasonable resolution. Or y’know, a personal goal people probably had before January 1st. Let’s be honest, a lot of resolutions are things that people should and probably will be doing anyway. And in light of 2016, nobody who wanted to be a better person last year was truly successful.
So here’s my alternative list of suggestions for people.

**Be Less Of An Asshole**

This one goes out to the deplorables, liberals, brexiteers, remainers, bigots, racist, general assholes. Just try to turn it down a notch and *listen* to other people. Even if you don’t like what they’re saying, acting like a bunch of school girls won’t help anybody. Being a bully doesn’t help anybody. (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).

An Open Letter To Trump Supporters…..


…and other ignorant, rude, racist and and stupid people.

Speaking of Trump, I read that Billy Bush has lawyered up. His lawyer claimed that Bush….

would not be able to challenge the bombastic billionaire during his commentary or he would have been out of a job.

I hear NBC may be gearing up to pay him $10 million dollars. Ridiculous.

In other news, Ben Carson is still a complete and utter shambolic excuse of a man. I have NO idea how he’s achieved what he has, but hey, he wouldn’t be the first smart man to lack basic intelligence. And he’s a pretty good puppet.

More and more women have made accusations of sexual assault against Trump. Trump, in true child-like, sniffing nose fashion, claimed that they’re ‘horrible, horrible liars’. I wonder what would make me more likely to believe them over him….hmm, could it be the video where HE BOASTS ABOUT DOING THESE THINGS BECAUSE HE’S A STAR AND THEY ‘LET HIM’? Oh, sorry. That’s just locker room talk. Disgusting.

In other other news, the UK can’t decide on whether they want a Hard Brexit or a Soft Brexit. This is despite the fact that only one of those is on the menu. Apparently, the EU are being difficult….uhm, no. It’s like someone saying they want to leave your birthday party because they hate you but can they have some cake first! It’s a bizarre stance to take when the UK are the ones with something to lose, but hey, what do I know?

Anyway, I’m just going to refer everyone back to the picture at the start of this post and sign off here.

Rapunzelecki is basically the Donald Trump of ‘Social Media Family’.

Not gonna mention any specific actor names but y’all know what I’m talking about. And also there’s a giant picture anyway which is making me question point of the lack of names, but whatever. (more…)

I am officially ashamed of my country.

I am officially ashamed of my country – if I can call it that.

Before yesterday, I was one of those people who had never voted before. If you tell people that you didn’t vote, depending on who you are, you might get an earful. People will tell you that your vote could be the difference and what not, but in some ways, all it does is make you complicit when the vote is read out. The same way that not voting does. Yesterday, I felt as if I finally had to make a stand (for my own benefit if anything). It helped that I wasn’t voting for a particular party. As I write this Labour – who I’d probably vote for – are unravelling rapidly. The result largely came about due to their lapses.

Anyway. Another reason why I’ve never bothered is that in a lot of the developed world at least, there is an increasingly ageing population. There are more over 60s than anyone else. There are so many of them that what they want is what we end up with. Apparently, they run this bitch now. America – watch out. The silver-haired people will fuck you all over and stab you in the front. That’s exactly what has happened in the UK. The UK has just held a referendum on whether or not it leaves the EU (European Union). So basically, we all voted either to ‘Leave’ or ‘Remain’. Leave won. That is to say, the people who have used every dirty, racist, xenophobic trick in the book have won.

I could not be more disgusted. (more…)
