Current Events Collage

A selection of screen shots and three one-minute videos, provided particularly for those who believe this week’s riot in the Capitol could never have been predicted, or that the president is suddenly being uncharacteristically unreasonable and dangerous (though not dangerous enough to remove from office via the 25th Amendment, according to Karen Pence and her ilk [1]).

And screw the unfair and unconstitutional Twitter and Facebook bans, there are still plenty of extreme right social media platforms for the president to seek attention on:

371,084 dead of COVID-19 (and counting, fast)

It’s all fake news, folks.

I parenthetically mention Karen Pence again because the Vice President’s wife is the real force behind the president’s loyal poodle, Mike Pence, a man suddenly vilified by Trumpists. Trump and his followers were cruelly disappointed that Pence refused to break the law and declare all the Biden votes fraudulent (he had no power to do that anyway) and a lynch mob roaming the Capitol chanted that Pence needed to be hanged as a traitor. I disagree on all counts, and even if I did agree, Karen Pence, who wears the pence in the family, is the one the crowd really wanted.

The proper punishment for Pence is to release him into a roomful of angry gay teenagers who would be allowed to kick him as many times, and as hard as, they wanted. Once he was unconscious he’d be immediately swept from the room and given state-of-the-art medical care, to ensure no permanent damage, as best as possible. All the gay teenaged kickers would be given unlimited immunity from prosecution for any and all damage resulting from, or related to, their savage kicking of Pence, signed by President Trump and initialed by Karen Pence herself. Done and done.

Come on, man!

United States

population: 328.2 million (2019) per capita income: $53,240

India

population: 1.353 billion (2018) per capita income: $1,900

Brazil

population: 209.5 million (2018) per capita income: $10,400

incidence of infection:

USA — one in 17 Americans (more than a 5% infection rate, and steadily rising)

India — one in 132 Indians (less than 1%)

Brazil — one in 156 Brazilians (less than 1%)

As we can plainly see, the country with the greatest wealth and the most liberty, once again leads the world in freedom, justice, health, safety, patriotism, nationalism and everything of value. USA! USA!!! And if you don’t believe it — go defund yourself!!! “Facts”? Go fact check yourself, pencil neck!!!

Trailer for Kayla (attempted post)

A quick peek at a how-to watercolor video I made for a very bright and creative kid, locked down in NJ.

Got to hand it to the cleverly, obsessively monetizing little fucks … only a hundred bucks or so (they’ve already reminded me my “shopping cart” contains items for which I have not yet authorized credit card payment) to show you this colorful 11 second video clip. Why not? This is America, after all!

Here, have a quick GIF instead (it’s free!)

Persistent little bastards.

Junior High School posters employed by Grand Old Party

20191115_174155.jpg

In what used to be called propaganda, Republicans placed large posters conspicuously on the podium behind the leaders of the Intelligence Committee, for viewers at home, whenever the committee chairman spoke.  The signs underscore what they continue to portray as a corrupt, partisan lynching.   Adam Schiff (“Shifty Schitt”) stated several times, and reiterated in closing, that to this day he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower.

No matter.   Trump says Shifty Schitt is a fucking liar.  

Two days later, as hearings continued, that poster was updated to read 95 days. Consistency is important in hammering home a talking point, sometimes. 

How Not To Worry

20191028_010418.jpg

Sekhnet, who calls herself a “recreational worrier”,  worries that I don’t worry enough. 

Now I know that the only way to stop worrying about what might happen is to make sure it doesn’t!

(I’m still not worried about the fact that the knife above would not actually close without leaving a sharp point sticking out of the handle)
