    In a New York magazine profile published in November 1992, a year after Trump divorced his first wife, Ivana, Trump was quoted dispensing his wisdom about how to handle the fairer sex.

    “You have to treat ’em like shit,” Trump said in the article to friend Philip Johnson, who responded, “You’d make a good mafioso.”

    Trump’s response: “One of the greatest.”

    “Who the f knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?”

    “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

    “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”


    Get over it Andy. Like it or not, TRUMP is your president.

    For the present, but he and the GOP have histories of egregious non performance. At the current pace they will not politically survive.


    Yes, Dork, why let any number of objectively terrible actions get in the way of your mindless allegiance to a wannabe autocrat.

    It’s part of the hypocrisy package endeared by dork, bacon, Broadway and Herb.

    Pro lifers are the biggest hypocrites there are, bar none. Their brains are clogged with nonsense and illogic. They offer nothing towards the greater good. Nothing.

    Late comic legend and social critic George Carlin nailed the hypocrisy of social conservatives who rail against abortion and birth control with “pro-life” rhetoric while simultaneously attacking social programs designed to support struggling families, supporting war and inciting violence against women. “They’re all in favor of the unborn,” Carlin says in the clip. “They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you!” Carlin paced the stage, hyping the audience with assertion that the same conservatives who use pro-family rhetoric object to programs like food aid, free school lunches and cash payments to the nation’s many deeply impoverished families. “No nothing! No neonatal care, no day care, no Head Start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing! If you’re pre-born, you’re fine. If you’re preschool, you’re fucked!”

    And fucked they remain: Budget proposals adopted earlier this year by the Republican-controlled House and Senate budget committees call for $3 trillion in federal spending cuts from 2016 through 2025. The progressive Center for Budgetary and Policy Priorities estimated that the each plan gets “more than two-thirds of its non-defense budget cuts from programs for people with low or modest incomes even though these programs constitute less than one-quarter of federal program costs.” Meanwhile, child poverty rates in the U.S. are already some of the highest in the developed world, and have been increasing since the mid-2000s, the Washington Post has reported.

    “Conservatives don’t give a shit about you until you reach military age,” Carlin said. “Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.” A 2002 Gallup poll showed members of the religious right were far more likely to support strikes on Saddam Hussein’s regime than those with relaxed religious views. As of 2008, polls of evangelical Christian leaders demonstrated many supported continuing the war in Iraq. So at least as far as the U.S.’ most recent major war is concerned, Carlin’s contention that social conservatives are fairly aggressive on foreign policy stands up to scrutiny.


    Pro lifers are scumbags. Period. Not one of them has any redeeming qualities. They are all soulless ghouls who portray themselves otherwise not realizing the majority of people think they should all be stripped naked, covered in hot tar and feathers, and chased out of town with shotguns.
