Longtime cigar-sucker somehow gets cancer

So Rush Limbaugh has lung cancer. Well, isn't that interesting. Here's my little personal history with this guy. In the early 90's, when I left home and moved to Phoenix to do the college thing, I discovered Rush on the radio. To my small-town mind, which hadn't been exposed to a lot of politics (and...

News from the American Hellscape: Bullets and Bullshit

This "invasion" nonsense has been spouted by racist nutjobs for decades.  I remember in the mid-90's there was a lot of frothy-mouthed hysteria about the "Aztlan conspiracy", which claims that illegal immigrants are slowly and methodically invading the Southwest U.S. in an effort to re-colonize it and magically turn it into their own country.  Yeah...totally...

News from the American Hellscape: The Whining Wall

Time for another round. This, folks, is a thing of beauty. Even today, after Trump's many broken promises, there are gullible nitwits out there who still think someone's going to build a wall to keep those dirty, violent brown people out, and they're willing to donate millions to make it happen (even though Trump personally...

Religious conservative “morals” are anything but

Here we have two stories that perfectly sum up the fucked-up values of America's religious conservatives. Let's start with this: Republicans Are Pissed About Crackdowns on Vaccine Exemptions The fight against measles in a handful of states is facing staunch opposition from Republicans and anti-vaxx parents as lawmakers crack down on exemptions that let kids...

Betrayed by President Cheeto

This probably makes me a bit of an asshole, but when I read about Trump supporters who are now feeling fucked over, I get the giggles.
