Subdeplorable Trumpsick Blues

Most of us get up in the morning for work and drive over the structurally unsound bridge and then pass the accident at that same place …you know, the dangerous intersection the city keeps ignoring. But it’s all good. The cop writes the tickets while the mechanic, the tow truck, and the hospital get their cut and, hey, now they captured it all on camera to maximize litigation. Then you make it to work and report to the Board-selected sociopathwho, surprise surprise, the governing board identified as the only personality disorder anywhere near the top of the food chaina person whose sole, yet soulless job is to figure out how to do more with less human resources. And you are a salary employee possibly in a right to work state, which translates as: you’re on call 24/7 and please work 50-80 hours a week, or we’ll find someone else who will. Oh, and we can fire you without cause, just ’cause. You wander to the window where the facility guys have resumed emptying those skull & crossbone labeled barrels into in the culvert across from the park. Sure, the drinking water’s getting a little Flintier and the food is getting a little more salmonelliear, but we’re saving money, right?

Meanwhile, they keep announcing how the agency is making more money, or less money, but either way your deductible is going up and your coverage is shittier and pricier each check up. This raises your blood pressure, which is now a pre-existing condition, so the day they walk you out you’re really screwed. You get home and call the contractor who only breaks your appliance more, for a hefty fee, and then you get on the phone to try to figure out how to get affordable health care that crosses state lines, because you’re trying to take this show on the road. Hint: You can’t get affordable health care in the U.S. and only people cross state lines, not coverage. Freedumb? Speaking of your phone, you have to call Verizon because your number was sold on a list and you’ve been inundated with telemarketers ever since. You also have to call your bank because someone either got a hold of your information, or you suspect someone has. My bank is Wells Fargo so YES.

You consider signing up for the ACA, but Texas just dealt it another blow and the Supremes will likely finish Obamacare off before you can use it. Soon there will be less coverage options for any solo entrepreneur, the unemployed or the impoverished, thereby increasing your incentive to return to another cubicle and report to the next sociopath. Oh, and as for that cubicle, if it doesn’t come with lead paint, carcinogenic flame retardant carpet and/or exposed asbestos, the Trump Administration will downgrade your designated cubicle for no extra charge. Round Up inundated perimeter sold separately.

Then you turn on the news to see a barely sentient, electoral-college-selected sociopath degrade, demean, and dodge his way toward the next economic abyss. The world is crowded, resources are dwindling, and the shining beacon on the hill turned out to be a Chevron. America is broken, kids, morally, economically and otherwise. And let’s be clear, whenever we as a country are shortsighted enough to elect a republican president, like Pud’s grandfather, we’re all On Borrowed Time. I’m not saying liberalism is the answer, but I remain convinced our republican friends never are. Don’t get me wrong, despite the ongoing misappropriation of reason I’m enjoying life, but maybe in some ways that’s the problem. Fueled by an illogical, yet supercharged normalcy bias we have all collectively turned the other cheek. We are no longer just flirting with disaster, we’ve taken disaster to some sleazy rent-by-the-hour motel and loaded the coin operated massagers.

 

Trump’s Annulment And The Aiding And Abetting Of A Known Felon

I’m going to cut my friend Pokey some slack. He’s just being used by our rightwing friends and lucky for him the inability to process information is not a crime. Devin Nunes and my friend Sean, on the other Hannity, are actively aiding and abetting a known felon. I’ve touched on this before, because I like to discuss what’s going to happen and avoid my friend’s approach, namely the misinterpretation of everything that already has. Many of us remain 90% sure that a variety of felonies are heading Trumpward. But others close to the president have known about this wide array of wrongdoing for a long time. Likely charges on the low end of the spectrum = obstruction of justice and a wave of white collar crimes. High end of the spectrum = full blown conspiracy + that other shit. The former should—and the operative word here is should—trigger impeachment proceedings. The latter should—and the operative word is should—trigger the full annulment of this administration. Team ass-clown is likely compromised to the Russians and the Saudis. Who knew? Uh, well, most of us. If it walks like a Trump and tweets like a Trump #ItsATrump. My above equation shows the results of such misdeeds in a functional democracy, which we no longer have. Yes, we ran past the point of no return on our environment and our democracy while half the country was too busy investigating the Clintons. Thanks? Today I want to talk about those enablers among us. Not my friend Pokey, a man blinded by the right, but those who are clearly aware of the wrongdoing and yet are protecting the enemy’s of democracy. Post Mueller’s findings, here’s who needs to fry for protecting Trump:

Sentinelese Tribe Rejects Missionary’s Application For Asylum

India’s North Sentinel Island—The Sentinelese tribesmen responsible for the recent death of an American missionary man on a remote island off the coast of India are finally speaking out today about the slaying. In an exclusive interview, tribal spokesman, Bob the Elder, told The Discord, “Yeah, we have some pretty tough immigration laws here on Stay The F’ Off Our Island. We’re closely watching what’s happening along the U.S.’s southern border and we really don’t want any of that shit here. A caravan of kayakers paddling over from Honduras is not our idea of good time. Hey, but at least we don’t snatch children from their families and detain them on separate sandbars. That’s some crazy Sheriff Joe like shit. We are satisfied with our current process for asylum seekers. We, the inhabitants of Stay The F’ Off Our Island, will continue to carefully review each and every application, *cough* between arrow volleys.”

The Discord Would Like To Apologize For The Following Discord Apology

Many of our readers are wondering how this website has gone from bad to worse over the years. I, as CEO, blame the inability of our marketing committee to raise enough funding for a functional Donate button. Next step, the creation of a Go Fund Me page to raise the money to create an on-site Donation button. More to come on that matter, but we are working diligently on this problem. Meanwhile, our recent article Where Is The Femdom Caucus Now? should have read ‘Freedom’ Caucus. We also apologize for the unfortunate direction our Photoshop team chose to take this misguided directive. We have removed the offensive image from the site and created an office dart board with it. Zano took a copy of it into the rest room for half an hour. I don’t know what’s up with that…OK, yes I do. Anyway, last week’s article Alien Ghost of Chiliean Found in Bowl in Mexico, should have been Ghost Chili Found in Mexican Illegal-Alien’s Bowl. This mistake caused a bit of panic south of the border—thankfully just the glorified gift shop in South Carolina, not the country.

The GOP And The Ongoing Misappropriation Of Reason

Liberals are continuing to make a profound mistake hoping for some republican reformation, a day when the Trumpsters of the world will turn some ideological corner toward reason. Even after the next line of political debacles, no matter how costly, their zenwrongness will hold steady. Essentially 1 in 3 people in this country are impervious to reality. Most citizens are ill-informed, for sure, but this one swath of society has almost no chance of joining the vaguely sentient any time soon. They are locked in this political death spiral, forever tacking toward delusion, even as their champion of freedom gets one step closer to legal, economic, and political disaster every day. Liberals are sill holding onto the notion that, post Trump’s carnage, many will see the error of their ways and embrace some more sophisticated worldview. Let me dispel that notion today, in fact, let’s take said notion and separate if from its family, tear gas it, and banish it to parts south.

Trump, Mexico, And The Hutts Mull Deal To Freeze Asylum Seekers In Carbonite

Tweet Tower—A senior staffer claims President Trump is exploring the idea of setting up carbonite storage facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border to deal with the current immigration problems. In this way asylum seekers can be frozen and stored until such a time as another president from the future, who might actually give a shit, can thaw them for final processing. Mexico is believed to be intrigued by the idea as well, but is pushing to have the facilitates located on the U.S. side of the border.

Dessert Choice At Brexit Summit Sparks Outrage

Brussels, BE—The Brexit summit in Belgium arrived with a hefty side order of sarcasm today. The choice of dessert, a giant banana split, struck a negative chord with at least one member of the accord. Many believe the UK is making a historic blunder by brexiting the EU, so several dignitaries desperately attempted to stifle their laughter as the desserts made their way to the table. “No one is laughing,” said May sternly. “Except, of course, all you people laughing. But let me remind you this is no laughing matter. No really, I’ve been crying myself to sleep for weeks over this. Oh, and the duck was salty!” No duck was served at the event, so many believe this was a very clever pun.

Black Friday Matters? Gunman Kills Two, Wounds Four, But Saves Hundreds On Samsung Flatscreen

Paramus, NJ—A man is in custody at this hour after being declared the winner of the Garden State Plaza Mall Shop-n-Shoot contest. After a rampage that cost two people their lives and injured several others, Gus Stahl of Maywood, NJ landed a great deal at Best Buy. He made several purchases that likely made gunmen shoppers across the country jealous. Dylan Klebold, of Columbine fame, said, “There were several other Black Friday incidents across the country yesterday, but this guy gets my vote, well, if I could vote. He was a professional. He got in, he got out, no fuss, no muss, and he saved a shit-ton of money. There’s a guy in Delaware who used way more bullets for some Beats. Seriously, dude? Headphones? You’re going to kill a bunch of people and save like, what, fifty bucks? You people make me sick.”

Quantum Psychologist Suggests Height Of CA Smoke Plume Topped Size Of Trump’s Ego

Paradise, CA—A controversial study was published today in The Lancet by Dr. Sterling Hogbein, of the Hogbein Institute and Coin Op Laundry. Data from the self-proclaimed ‘quantum psychologist’ suggests the height of the smoke plumes from the recent devastating wildfires in California topped that of the average size of Donald Trump’s ego for a brief period of time between the hours of 7:15AM and 9:28AM PST Sunday, November, 17. The White House has thus far refused to comment on the controversial piece of peer reviewed research, which may only further the psychologist’s claim.

In Historic Reversal Turkey Pardons Trump!

Tweet Tower—One of the two presidentially pardoned turkeys is back in the news today. A day after their pardoning ceremony, one of the turkeys, Peas, sent a short and pointed note to the president. After the Feds determined the white powder on the envelope was only meth, the note was handed to President Trump. In a gesture of good faith, Peas is pardoning the president for his hair, his fam, and “that meaningless Trump U degree he received in 2007.” Peas would also like to give a big shout out to those tofurkey people!

Death Racism 2000: Does History Suggest Libs Are Winning Or Losing The Tolerance Race?

My friend thinks Democrats are the main racists in today’s society as well as in the past. So liberals are secretly the alt-right, tiki-torch wielding hate mongers? Too bad that laundromat was closed on my way to Charlottesville. [Sheet out-of-luck joke removed by the editor.] What fun house mirror are you snorting PCP off of? Your trip down racism memory lane has some early signs of Dem-entia. If liberals have managed to weaponize immigration to their political advantage, it might actually balance the active voter suppression efforts of the Republican party. Besides, if immigrants are helping to oust the worst regime this country has ever seen—next to Dubya, of course—than kudos! My blogvesary, after losing every argument in the 21st century, is climbing into Mr. Peabody’s Way Back Machine for the sole purpose of arguing how Republicans were the progressives on the lead up to the civil war. What? An orange, Mussolini-like wrecking ball is occupying the oval office, right now! Look at him! Look at him! Stop trying to hide behind Jackson v Lincoln, which has little to no relevance.

Retraction Alert: you would not be the guy in 1930s Germany ignoring the rise of Hitler only to hyper-focus on the shortcomings of his rival, Hindenburg; you’d be the guy attributing the problems of the day to the Teutonic knights, who never should have let those liberal Templars “suck all the fun out of the 12th century.”

Democrats and Racism: A Love Story

The Democratic Party’s history of racial politics stretches back to its foundation as Andrew Jackson rose to the power of the presidency (1830ish). Under Jackson’s leadership, thousands of Native American Indians were herded from their land and into detention camps called reservations. The Democratic Party also supported and fought to defend the practice of slavery until its abolition at the conclusion of the Civil War.

Dolphin Shot Dead On CA Beach: Orca Wanted For Questioning

Manhattan Beach, CA—A dolphin is dead after being gunned down on a southern California beach earlier today. Witnesses of the incident claim that the dolphin was trying to avoid a pod of orcas by intentionally beaching itself when one of the orcas rose out of the water and fired a burst of shots at the flailing sea mammal. This opens a grim new chapter to the aquatic gun rights problem, as orcas can legally carry firearms in U.S. waters, just as anything else with fins, gills and feathers. 

If Our Entire Nation Joins The Circus Who’s In The Audience?

Since day one of this rag’s inception I’ve warned how this is a race between the death of the Republican party and the death of our nation. Unfortunately taking back the House falls short of what the situation demanded. Granted the odds of winning the senate were always grim, but the integrity or our courts are lost for a generation and Fox & Frauds will continue to placate this orange pariah as we race toward ruin. We’ve shot beyond the point of no return on our planet’s viability, on our court’s authoritarianism, and on our overall drift toward fascism. Even our booming economy is showing signs of losing sight of the shoreline as our deficits hit $22-trillion this month while the president guts the last of the Wall Street regulations and consumer protections. Remember what a big deal deficits were when Obama was forced to create a new economic model to avoid the Bush Depression? Now that they’re skyrocketing, for no actual reason, let’s go back to ignoring them. Barring the slim chance of an annulment our judicial system is locked on authoritarian mode. Trust me, ideologically speaking they’ll land somewhere between Federalists and Nazi Federalists. But I’ll let you be the inquisitor. And, to save himself, our president may attempt to become a permanent fixture over on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. So I have only one more question for you, my friend, how the hell did you miss all of this shit?

The Long And Sordid History Of Democrats And Immigration Reform

You’re right about one thing, Zano, the immigration issue is far more involved, philosophically and historically, than our political pundits or parties tend to comment. Traditionally it was assumed and required that all legal immigrants would assimilate into our nation by truly identifying as Americans while leaving behind the racial and ethnic past. Through the assimilation of our language, traditions, laws, customs, and culture, the Irish Americans freely chose to become an American of Irish descent. That’s the difference with today’s approach to immigration, and thereby the problem.

On News Of Stan Lee’s Death Adamantium Stock Plummets

X-Mansion—The stock market was a real roller coaster this week, but the latest drop in the Dow came at the clawed hands of Marvel great, Stan Lee. Lee created such comic book legends as Spiderman and the X-Men, and news of the 95-year-old’s death sent the price of adamantium, the indestructible metal alloy that fortifies the X-Men, dropping like a mutant at a Trump rally.
