The best way to deal with a Trumper? Mock on!

The best way to deal with a Trumper? Mock on!

Since the rise of Donald Trump, numerous liberal friends have disapproved of my treatment of those in the Trump Cult. While I treat Trumpers with snark, those friends feel that a better way to deal with such people his through friendly conversations and reasoning. Now that we are into year four of the Trump Cult, […]

Sarcasm has your back

Sarcasm has your back

Marty’s photo of the day #3233: “So Donald Trump has now established that any American can say anything, no matter how dangerous, and claim it was ‘sarcasm’ if it comes back to bite them in the ass. He’s a hoot!” (Long-eared owl, photographed in Montana.)

Do I use the word “fucking” too much?

Do I use the word “fucking” too much?

Sometimes I wonder if I use the word “fucking” too much in my posts. I don’t fucking think so, but what the fuck, I probably should fucking ask: Do you think I use fucking too fucking much? I mean, it’s a fucking good word with no fucking reason to be offended by it. Even evangelicals […]

Donald Trump Kills Puppies!

Donald Trump Kills Puppies!

DONALD TRUMP KILLS PUPPIES! Now that Trump has ordered that his name be printed on the COVID-19 stimulus checks, those checks will be delayed to millions of people who need them now. This is the big news of the day. No one is surprised by Trump’s narcissistic move and, of course, his administration will lie […]

Why Trump really wants to kill the U.S. Postal Service

Why Trump really wants to kill the U.S. Postal Service

For years Republicans have failed to support the U.S. Postal Service, but it always felt like a game of chicken, where the GOP would eventually back down and give the Postal Service what it needed. If the Postal Service shut down, thousands of businesses that bill their clients through the mail would go out of […]

We must remember the role the Christian-Right played

We must remember the role the Christian-Right played

After right-wing Christians elected Donald Trump, he promptly pulled America out of the Paris Agreement and gutted our country’s environmental laws, setting himself up to become the most prolific slow-killer of all-time. Trump will also be responsible for thousands of COVID-19 deaths because he put his ego and greed over the lives of his constituents. […]

Thank you Bernie! Now it’s time to go.

Thank you Bernie! Now it’s time to go.

I thank Bernie Sanders for all he has done to bring awareness to so many important issues. I also thank him for successfully pushing the Democratic Party leftward to more liberal thinking. Now I look forward to thanking him for gracefully dropping out of the Democratic primary within the next few days (COVID-19 makes his […]

Doling out revenge as if it were candy

Doling out revenge as if it were candy

Republicans frequently state that they don’t care about Donald Trump’s behavior; they only care about his results. That sounds innocent enough—until you realize that people made similar claims during the reigns of the worst autocrats in history. Even Robert Mugabe had his fans. Where Trump will ultimately rank among the world’s authoritarian rulers is yet […]

Golf is not a sport . . . except here!

Golf is not a sport . . . except here!

Marty’s photo of the day #3174: I’ve never considered golf a sport, because it doesn’t require running, skiing, skating, or catching or hitting a moving object. Instead it’s a game—especially if a slob like Donald Trump can play it and “defeat” someone. Golf is also horrible for the environment, since it requires massive amounts of […]

Trump teaches children that revenge is okay

Trump teaches children that revenge is okay

The Christian-right gets their panties in a twist if two same sex people kiss on television—because “children are watching!” Knowing that, isn’t it ironic that they don’t get upset when their “champion,” Donald Trump, assaults women, calls people derogatory names, goes on a deranged rant at the National Prayer Breakfast, profits off of the presidency, […]

No oral sex for Republicans

No oral sex for Republicans

On February 12, 1999, the vast majority of Republicans voted to convict Bill Clinton in his impeachment trial. His crime: lying about a blow job. On February 5, 2020, every Republican except one voted to acquit Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. His crime: selling out America and withholding aid to an ally for personal […]

Trump Mountain

Trump Mountain

Marty’s photo of the day #3121: Everyone knows that Donald Trump loves having things named after him. Therefore, I propose that Mexico name this geological feature after him. The rocks you see are white, because they are covered with bird guano. What could be more fitting than naming a mountain of shit after the shittiest […]

IMPOTUS and windmills

IMPOTUS and windmills

Marty’s photo of the day #3111: “I know windmills very much. I have studied it better than anybody.”—Donald Trump, IMPOTUS Trump’s latest moronic statement sent me searching through my photos for this picture of my very yellow rental car next to a newly built windmill blade. I took the photo when I performed “Around the […]

What if Mike Pence had an attack of ethics?

What if Mike Pence had an attack of ethics?

Now that Donald Trump has been impeached, reporters in the legitimate media pretty much agree that Republican senators will ignore their oath to “do impartial justice” and quickly acquit the Oval Office Sociopath of his crimes against America. But what if Republican politicians actually believed in the tenets of Christianity rather than just using it […]

L’Arena di Verona

L’Arena di Verona

Marty’s photo of the day #3101: A year ago this week, Deb and I were in Italy. In this photo we are standing in L’Arena di Verona, the fourth largest coliseum in Italy. It was built in the first century, and it’s actually older than the more famous coliseum in Rome. Imagine if such coliseums […]

Who would Jesus mock?

Who would Jesus mock?

On December 4, Melania Trump tweeted: “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.” This was in response to Karlan’s statement that criticized Donald Trump, not Melania’s fragile son […]

Trump and his pathetic search for an adoring crowd

Trump and his pathetic search for an adoring crowd

How insecure is Donald Trump? For the vast majority of his führership, he has hidden from everyday Americans and only made public appearances at his cult rallies, where he knows he can say anything and be worshipped. Then, during the World Series, Little Boy Trumpy got brave and showed up at a game, where he […]

How President Bedbug can pay his $2 million fine

How President Bedbug can pay his $2 million fine

Today Senior Bedbug lost in court and was ordered to pay $2 million to settle the New York State Attorney General’s civil lawsuit against The Donald J. Bedbug Foundation for self-dealing to the Bedbug Crime Family. (Remember when the Bedbug claimed it was the Clinton Foundation, not the Bedbug Foundation that was corrupt?) Since Senior […]

Did Sen. Rand Paul just commit a crime?

Did Sen. Rand Paul just commit a crime?

“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name.”—Sen. Rand Paul at yesterday’s Trump Cult Rally in Kentucky Fact: Federal whistleblower laws protect the identities of people who bring forth accusations of wrongdoing by government officials. That means that Sen. Rand Paul, with Donald Trump nodding and clapping behind him, demanded […]

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

Trump and the unholy wall he is building around himself

When I think about the Christian church I grew up in and compare it to American Christians of today (at least the conservative ones), it is like night and day. The change can be traced back to the 1980s and Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority.” From there, the unholy alliance between Republicans and conservative Christians took […]
