Full Frontal Thursday: GA Primaries, Abortion Restrictions, ICE, & Yemen

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the upcoming mid-term elections and how Democrats in Georgia have surprised her with their nomination of Stacy Abrams. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. History tells me that whichever one of her hate-filled RethugliKKKan opponents happens to be will win that election because, you know, Trump supporters.

Speaking of Baby-Hands, he’s back to attacking Planned Parenthood and continues to spin conspiracy theories about Barack Obama’s administration.

Sam also talks about ICE, how it formed after 9/11, and what a useless waste of time and money it has been from its inception.

Finally, she shines the spotlight on Yemen and attempts to educate the ignorant about the war in Yemen that the USA is involved in. Educating the ignorant, even with a popular television show, is difficult at best. That’s why I quit wasting my time trying to do so.

I blog because I like to. It’s fun.

Last Week Tonight: Rehab

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on the rehab industry and how it is a revolving-door of scams operated by bullshit artists out to con the last dime from any sloppy addict. They guy who looked like Matt Lauer fucked a pair of sunglasses was certainly not hurting for money, evidenced by his cocaine-fueled attitude and steroid-enhanced biceps! ROFL

I’ve seen the commercial for that Passages place. Pax Prentiss stating that “Passages works. I should know. I was an addict for 10 years. Now, I’m not.” Nothing said about the treatment they offer. Just scenes of people working out, doing yoga, and getting acupuncture. That should be a red flag for anyone looking for real treatment, yes?

Then again, there are plenty of scammers out there who offer help and claim to have the answer to anything. The only answer they don’t have is how much money they expect you to cough up before they deign to offer said help. Even then, it is only pretense.

Word of the Day: Collaboration

The word of the day is collaboration.

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

Definition of collaborate

collaborated; collaborating

intransitive verb

1 : to work jointly with others or together especially in an intellectual endeavor ·An international team of scientists collaborated on the study.

2 : to cooperate with or willingly assist an enemy of one’s country and especially an occupying force ·suspected of collaborating with the enemy

3 : to cooperate with an agency or instrumentality with which one is not immediately connected ·The two schools collaborate on library services.

collaboration
\kə-ˌla-bə-ˈrā-shən\ noun

collaborative
\kə-ˈla-bə-ˌrā-tiv, -b(ə-)rə-\ adjective or noun

collaboratively
\kə-ˈla-bə-ˌrā-tiv-lē, -b(ə-)rə-\ adverb

collaborator
\kə-ˈla-bə-ˌrā-tər\ noun

I was musing over this word after hearing it repeatedly being misused on a podcast I watched last week. The person using it should have known better as he is the senior writer for the company putting on the podcast. I guess when one is a privileged, entitled, tenured individual who hasn’t had to do a hard day’s work since the age of 21, if ever, they can afford to be smug and arrogant about how collaboration is the only way to be a successful writer.

Their definition of collaboration can be summed up this way: “You do the writing and send me the draft. I’ll change it, copyright it and claim that it is mine and that you gave all creative rights to me. You do the work, but let me take the credit.”

That isn’t collaboration. That is theft.

Who wants to work with a thief? Answer: other thieves.

I’m not one.

Last Week Tonight: Venezuela

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on Venezuela. That country is having an election next week and John shows us what the limited option is for the people there.

Full Frontal Thursday: the Iran Deal, Checking In With #MeToo, & Return To the Rescue Farm

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam gives a skewering to Eric Schneiderman. He’s the AG who was a champion of women’s rights, but turned out to be a total douchenozzle. He’s not dissimilar to whites who pretend to be aware of racism and racist discrimination, but end up being cross-burning, goose-stepping sheet-wearers in belief and ideology.

Next, she talks about how Baby-Hands McDrumpf just shredded the Iran Deal out of spite and to distract from the whole Russia investigation, the fact that America is currently in six wars and has no intention of getting us out of them, and the whole Stormy Daniels thing. There is a country in the Middle East that worries me far more than Iraq or Iran. It also begins with the letter ‘I’ and is led by one Bibi Netanyahu.

Finally, she returns to the rescue farm for abandoned government workers to find out what Scott Pruitt is doing for the EPA. It isn’t pretty.

She also gives a final “fuck off” to Eric Schneiderman. At least she is able to call out bullshitters and be believed. Not everyone is that fortunate. Most just want to coddle and enable them. They take the easy way out.

As a bonus, I added a Late Show with Stephen Colbert clip. It was perfect.

Last Week Tonight: Rudy Giuliani

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver shows the clueless people that Rudy Giuliani’s unhinged behavior has been evident since before 11 September of 2001. Rudy the ghoul used the rotting corpse of “9/11” to maintain popularity and relevance. Reminds me of the needy, desperate attention-whores on Face-Twit-o-Gram and in the blog-o-sphere!

I love the way John has bought various domain names. Others do similar things for more sinister means.

They make navigating the internet an interesting experience. One has to look out for spam sites along with spam email notifications.

Full Frontal Thursday: Facebook, Sarah Huckasanders, & the Frightening Faces of Trump Supporters

In this edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam kills it with her spot-on statements about Mark Zuckerberg’s decade-long history of false apologies. He is directly responsible for the bullshit that was spread by his own creation, so he needs to own up to it. Enough with the talk and empty promises. Do something already.

Next, Sam skewers the lying mouthpiece of the rapist liar-in-chief. The blatant hypocrisy of everyone in the Drumpf administration is obvious, but his mindless and blind supporters are ignorant beyond belief. That ignorance and racism is on full display for Amy Hoggart when she attends a klan rally in Michigan.

I’m not surprised by those people at all. They were the same when my husband and I rode through that area back in 2012, and they’ve only gotten worse.

They breed like flies and roaches.

“Stereotypes Have Some Truth In Them.”

That statement is one of the more popular logical fallacies I see used as an excuse for ignorance and stupidity. These obvious gas-lighting comments are rampant on the internet but particularly in the blog-o-sphere, in the comment sections of Facebook and YouTube, and have exploded exponentially on in-game zone-chat.

The people who use them the most are Trump-supporting race-baiters cherry-picked from the modern-day sideshows on YouTube, TLC, and the grossly misnamed Discovery channel. Gays who pretend that they’re discriminated against tend to use these strawmen to shut down non-white people while simultaneously discriminating against straight people.

People who pretend to be teachers, doctors, attorneys, or civil servants do the most damage. That’s what merit-based employment gets us: especially in the deep south where ‘southern values’ are rammed down throats and up asses.

I prefer having intelligent, reasonable discussions with intellectually curious critical thinkers. They are generally best conducted face-to-face.

If you’re looking for a like-minded goose-stepper who will agree with everything you say then please move on. I’m not one.

Saturday Spotlight: James Shaw, Jr.

Remember “Connect-the-Dots?” If you saw those brain-teasers as a kid, you would recall that they were pretty simple. The picture in them was essentially already laid out for you; all you had to do was connect the dots to complete it. The simple ones only required you to complete the outline of the picture, but the more complex ones were more obscure. You would have to connect the dots in a convoluted, complex manner to see the whole picture.

That’s how it is in history, politics, and other man-made social norms. One can look at the current political climate here in the States and, by connecting the dots, see the big picture and how our politics are mirroring, and being mirrored by, other political events in other countries.

I recently connected the dots when it came to the bloggers who I thought were fun-loving online acquaintances. They laid out an amazing patchwork of amateur art and remedial poetry. I love the delicious simplicity of it all when I look at the full picture. I should give them due credit in some future posts, yes?

Nah. They already have too big of an audience and all they use it for is to smear shit on themselves and throw shit at others. What a waste of time and effort.

There are plenty of good people doing good things, quietly, without the desperate need of the attention and approval of others. James Shaw, Jr., for example. He is one who is doing good things because he is good people. That’s all there is to it.

Full Frontal Thursday: Mike Pompeo, Preet Bharara, & Bannon’s Racist European Tour

In this week’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam has a chuckle over Emmanuel Macron’s visit with Baby-Hands McDrumpf. Then she introduces us to Mike Pompeo, the new face that represents the USA to the rest of the world.

Next, she points out the interesting ways that Steve Bannon is taking his filth to the shithole countries who welcome him and his ideologies with open arms. No shocker there. At least I know which places to skip over when I travel abroad.

Finally, Sam sits down with Preet Bharara to get some real legal information from an actual attorney about any potential troubles the current administration might face in the future.

Too bad YT didn’t post the tail-end clip of her show, where Sam gave kudos to the gentleman who managed to stop the shooting in the Waffle House without firing a shot. Well, we all know what YT really stands for.

😉
