Wingnutties out of control!

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I had forgotten about that one! 😄
It's a great one, thanks.


Act Now: Protect Social Security. Oppose the Trump Administration's Cruel Policy.

Don't let them kill granny.
No doubt Trump's proposal is evil, as if there were any other kind, but it would be nice if petition people seeking support would include a link so we could see what the actual proposal is.

Sorry, they usually do, or I find something if I notice that they didn't. I believe this latest flurry is about public statements rather than a concrete proposal, at least one that's been revealed.

Column: Trump opens door to Social Security cuts

There is this proposal from Dec:

Trump administration proposes Social Security rule changes that could cut off thousands of disabled recipients

And this from last March:

Column: Trump’s budget would eviscerate the social safety net but provide welfare for the rich

I've never found that dying ever turned a vile evil person into someone to be lauded. Limbaugh spread lies, conspiracy theories, hate and divisiveness for years and got paid millions for it. He influenced and energized the dregs of American society and turned them into an army of dittoheads spouting his vitriol. Rot in peace.

Yeah, it would seem that Rush's scam will soon be at an end. And I am also rooting for Alex Jones to suffer terminal financial cancer and delirium once he loses a few more civil law suits due to his Rush on crack type promotion of ignorance and stupidity. No doubt even ratten would shrug about any practical explanations for either Alex or Rush present lives or their next ones. I figure Rush will be an ashtray and Alex will be a toilet with a leak that cannot be fixed.

I'll bet that a successful documentary or YouTube series could be made from touring the country or world and dancing on the graves of assholes © . Histories of the assholes could be included, local attractions, food, etc. could be featured, different appropriate dance styles could be used, and local dancers could be recruited.

"Dancing With the Assholes" does have a ring to it, although some would say it's already been done with some contestants on "Stars."

For Limbaugh, we'd suggest doing the Limbo, to the music of an all-black Jamaican band.

Alex Jones could be entombed in Jonestown surrounded by the spirits of all the killed cultists.

Good one.

Friendly amendment: Dominican Republic band.

There could even be contests:

Who is the biggest asshole buried in your state?
What is the oldest still existing asshole grave in your state?
What cemetery has the most assholes buried in it?
Weekly clues to find a mystery asshole's grave.
Alternative epitaphs for assholes.
Dancing on asshole graves flash mobs.

Unfortunately, there are way too many assholes to choose from. There should be some categories, like in music/film awards. Biggest political asshole; biggest corporate asshole; biggest sports asshole; biggest entertainment asshole, etc. But I like celebrating their assholiness with derision and ridicule.
Might give additional meaning to "pissing contest" too.

True, but I foresee Dancing on the Assholes lasting for many many seasons. Anyhow, you've IDed the parameters for a bunch of new audience contests.

Perhaps some episodes could be devoted to "SpeedAss" where the host dances on the most graves possible in a day.

Then, there could also be "MassAss" episodes where people around the nation or world all dance on their local top asses' graves at the same time.

A specialty category for experts would be finding and dancing on the grave of an asshole BEFORE s/he is buried or even dead, like Rush. There could also be symbolic dances for assholes we wish were dead.

A little seriously: Not that I'd put the energy into it, but this is just crazy enough that it might work. There's nuttier stuff on TV and YT for years that I just smh and wonder who the hell is watching.

There definitely needs to be a GAOT or greatest asshole of all time. I recommend Donald Rumsfeld. Robert McNamara a close second. Actually, if Bob hadn't killed himself, he might have gone all the way.

Rush Limbaugh 2020 Donald Trump Awarded during 2020 State of the Union Address

:puke-left: :puke-left: :puke-left:
I would consider giving mine back, especially if it came from POSPOTUS.

Comments:
What's next, will Trump give Hannity the presidential medal of freedom.
Yes.
I'm surprised Trump didn't give himself a presidential medal of freedom ...
Hah, great minds …
For what exactly? Every Presidential Medal of Freedom is now diminished if this is the bar.
That was a great campaign rally...oops I mean state of the union
The Presidential Medal of Freedom just does not have any meaning anymore with Rush Limbaugh receiving one.
alex jones is asking tonight "wheres my medal of freedom"?
Wait for it ...
Limbaugh? The Presidential Medal of Freedom?
That clinches it. It's not Presidential and it's not about Freedom.
It might as well be given away in packs of ten with each Happy Meal. That's how much it is worth today.
Along with the "Trump coin" and the Trump 2 dollar bill!
tRump will be presenting the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Putin next week....
Could happen, really.
Rush Limbaugh gets the Presidential Medal of Freedom. That is a straight up joke.
Put an asterisk next to that. "Impeached Presidential Medal of Freedom."
:lol:
Comrade Trump just found a way to disrespect the meaning and honor of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In general, Yahoo-world is not amused.

Engineer tried to crash train into USNS Mercy in Los Angeles: Feds

... Around 1 p.m. Tuesday, Moreno allegedly ran the train at full speed off the end of the tracks near the Navy medical boat, smashing through several concrete and chain barriers, before sliding through a parking lot nearly 250 yards from the Mercy, according to the criminal complaint.

No one was injured and the boat wasn't damaged, however, the train leaked a substantial amount of fuel, the complaint said.

A California Highway Patrol officer caught Moreno as he allegedly tried to escape from the scene, according to the complaint. Moreno allegedly told officers and FBI investigators that he deliberately derailed the boat because he was suspicious of the Mercy's intentions and thought it was actually part of a government takeover, the complaint said....

In an interview with FBI agents, Moreno stated that "he did it out of the desire to ‘wake people up,’" according to the complaint....
