It’s Real, and it is sad

You know what is really disgusting?

A foul mouth red head, but disgusting?

Okay, we have all heard about Griffin. I agree, she should not have done what she did, and should have treated a sitting president better. Personally, I think Griffin is funny, but you have to be into gay men humor, which is really her style. If you are a gay man or have male gay friends, you get it. If you are an ultra conservative that thinks gays are sinners, well, I get why you don’t understand her.

To be honest, I really didn’t get her joke about Trump. Was I disgusted? A little, but more bewildered then anything. It wasn’t funny, and really wasn’t her style.

But something about this controversy really ticked me off. The word people used over and over again was ‘disgusting’. And I get it.

But do you know what is truly disgusting? A presidential candidate who brags about grabbing women’s vaginas, calls them pigs, calls his opponent a ‘Nasty Women’ etc. etc. Everyone thought that was just fine. Well it wasn’t, it was truly ‘disgusting’. Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

Now hopefully Griffin goes back to what she is good at, and we can only wish our president would go back to his previous job to, or better yet, just go away.

The American Dream (H/T – KH & RH)

One of my FB posted this last night and I asked if I could post it. Her son did this in Art Class about the American Dream.

Mayor Huether compares himself to Trump

trump-mmm

Whadda I tell you!

Mike said on the B-N-B show this morning that he understands why Trump gets frustrated with the press when they spread BS.

Oh the irony.

Fact checkers determined that during the campaign, 70% of what Trump said was pure BS. Let’s talk about how frustrating it is to listen to politicians spread it.

Play Ball!

Is Mayor Huether Sioux Falls version of Trump?

trump-mmm

First, I will start by saying people who are upset about the election results to stop crying and get involved on a local level to make change. Change doesn’t come from the top, it starts locally.

I say this because the similarities between Trump and Huether are a bit startling when you start looking at it. Huether became our mayor almost 7 years ago on the promise to run the city like a business and to ‘get things done’. Sounds like a familiar stump speech by Trump.

So how has this business acumen attitude worked out for our city?

• Huether has grown our economy and population

• Huether has grown development (mostly thru annexation and urban sprawl)

• Huether has improved infrastructure and quality of life amenities.

But what has been the cost?

• By the time Huether leaves office, he will have bonded more then any previous mayor, even crushing Munson’s record. We will most likely be a half-billon in debt by the time he leaves office. His total credit card bill during his administration will be well over $200 million in 8 short years. To put that in perspective, when Hanson became mayor our city debt was $90 million, 23 years ago.

• The rapid growth has caused two major problems. Not enough jobs for medium skilled workers and violent crime increase. Huether himself has even blamed rapid growth on the crime increase, so you ask, ‘Why did you promote it, and what are you doing to fix it?’

• Corporate like salary increases for city management and crumbs to support staff.

• Transparency at an all time low. Secret development deals, secret settlements, secret firings, behind the scene bullying and intimidation, and the list goes on.

• Lack of a diversity coordinator. Two people have already stepped down from the position.

So if you think Huether’s business acumen has worked out for the city, you certainly won’t have a problem with how Trump will run our country.

Morning After To-Do List:

1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.
2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must “heal the divide” and “come together.” They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.
3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn’t wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that’s about to begin.
4. Everyone must stop saying they are “stunned” and “shocked”. What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all “You’re fired!” Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.
5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there’s climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don’t want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the “liberal” position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

Let’s try to get this all done by noon today.

Why I voted for Hillary Clinton

hillary_clinton_official_secretary_of_state_portrait_crop

She’s not perfect, but she also is not Trump

I voted several weeks ago, mainly because there are 10 important ballot measures and several close and important county and legislative races. But I almost left the presidential ballot blank. But I plugged my nose, closed my eyes and penciled in Clinton. As I have said before, Trump will probably win in SD and our vote for president really doesn’t matter in SD. We haven’t elected a Democrat for president in SD since Johnson. That’s a long time ago.

I will agree with most Trump supporters that Hillary has a bumpy public service resume over the past 30 years. Real bumpy. But she has one. No public servant has a perfect record. But Hillary’s achievements outweigh her downfalls. Her public service experience is paramount to Trump. He has zero. Unless you count his tax avoidance and the constant lawsuits he is involved with with the government.

He scares the S— out of me. He has no policy experience, no Federal economics experience, no national security experience. Zilch. All he has is shallow anger.

I tell people my choice for president was very easy. While I do have concerns about Hillary, I also know what goes on in Washington is mostly silliness, but as long as the next president can keep me safe and not let the bottom fall out of the economy, that’s about all I can expect from them. I will sleep soundly if Hillary is elected, because I think she can at ‘least’ provide me with that security. If she accomplishes other things like fixing the ACA, keeping Social Security and Medicare viable, ending the wars in the mideast, fixing the racial divisions in our country, raising taxes on the rich and appointing more liberal judges, that would also be great.

Trump hasn’t proved to me he can provide that kind of security. In fact, I can’t imagine the nightly bad dreams I would have if he is elected. The best way to describe a Trump presidency?

NIGHTMARE!

So you are thinking about voting for Trump?
