Lewd and Lascivious

When shopping for vodka, I usually select the reputable brand in a glass bottle that’s on sale. I learned the hard way about plastic bottle vodka a long time ago.

Man, I didn’t anticipate writing about this one.

This isn’t James Comey’s fault. It’s not the fault of third parties. It’s absolutely not the fault of Bernie supporters.  It’s hardly because of misogyny or sexism. It has little to do with Julian Assange and fuck all to do with Russian intervention.

For a few years now we’ve been ballyhooing the implosion of the republican party.  The democratic party got out over it’s skis and beat them to the punch.  I’m done with this goddamn party. Only Wasserman Schultz and her posse could have choreographed such a spectacular ballet just prior to such a disastrous face plant.

Uneducated white people (men in particular) elected this buffoon for one simple minded reason.  Trump promised an abrupt change from the educated, moneyed elite’s control and economic suppression of their lives for profit. Nevermind that he had no intention of doing any such thing.

He closed.

These people were absolutely correct to see Hillary Clinton as one of those elite and that’s where the DNC throat raped us all.  They engaged in elaborate fuckery to force feed her to us while the one democrat who legitimately represented the actual change that all the voters craved regardless of political ideology or party affiliation built a smart and focused movement of monolithic proportion around that very change right in front of them.

Bernie Sanders’ earnest threat to business as usual scared them more than Donald Trump ever could. The DNC was neither blind or stupid, they were calculating and deliberate because they understood all too well that this man would undermine their avaricious grip on the 99%.  With eyes wide open and hearts black and hardened, the democratic corporation didn’t just sell out democrats, they sold out America.  They knew they’d do just fine in Trump’s fever swamp of ignorance, arrogance and incompetence.

It was crystal clear the people wanted change.  Trump was selling it.  Bernie was selling it.  Hillary was not.  It’s not piling on to point out that she’s scandal ridden, thoroughly lacking in transparency, authenticity and hopelessly unlikable.  It’s not piling on to point out she cost us senate and house opportunities.  It’s not piling on to point that Hillary and friends may have screwed the pooch on the supreme court for at least a generation.

She was the one candidate who could lose to Trump and the DNC knew it.

Now we have a republican senate, a republican congress and a republican fascist president.  A perfect storm.

Our national nightmare begins.

I am horrified.

You should be too.

This was an epic fail.

The Democratic National Corporation committed criminal political malpractice. Party leaders must resign or be executed.  A post mortem is in order and we need a pathologist without his head up his ass.

Drinks for my friends.

    Trump had an all expense paid, $2 billion dollar marketing campaign, a free-be, courtesy of the mass media; to sell his swampland promises to the unsuspecting, sight unseen. No matter how many small donations Bernie raised from small donors, he couldn’t buy the attention of the media, even though, he was offering prime options on restoring equity and leveling the playing field in the once promised land of the american dream. The Clintons would motivate Trump into the race and the DNC would show no mercy, destroying Bernie. And now the democratic party and the nation is left to pick up the pieces of this horribly planned disaster. A nicely expressed piece Michael.

      RIGHT, I HAD SEEN THIS COMING A TIME AGO, WITH MEDIA GAMING. TRUMP PLAYED THE GAME WELL, HILLARY IGNORED THE HEARTLAND,THE BLUE BELT’S NEEDS & CONCERNS. SHE COULDN’T EVEN TAKE TEXAS, SHE’S BEEN IN THE GAME, FOR SO LONG AND THE PUBLIC KNOWS THE TRUTH ABOUT HER IGNORING EVERYTHING IMPORTANT TO THEM. SHE COULDN’T EVEN DISTANCE HERSELF FROM ANTHONY WIENER, PEOPLE IN OHIO AND WISCONSIN COULDN’T RELATE WITH THAT WEIRDO BEING ANYWHERE NEAR NATIONAL SECURITY. THIS SHOWS TOTAL LACK OF AWARENESS ON THE PART, OF HILLARY AND DNC. THE PEOPLE LOST WHEN WE GOT STUCK WITH JUST THE TWO TRUMP AND HILLARY RUNNING. I DON’T KNOW PERHAPS, TRUMP WILL FIGURE AWAY TO PRESERVE JOBS AND LIGHT INDUSTRY IN THE MIDWEST? ROSS PEROT, TALKED THE TALK THEN DISAPPEARED.

      THE INDUSTRY OF PRIVATE PRISONS, HAS HAD THERE MARKET VALUE JUST GO UP.

  • Jeffrey Casey:

    I agree we have entered the “Facism” phase of the American Empire and I love that your wrote “he closed”. This was a humankind sized hard close. Nothing more and nothing less. Bernie was the real change that America didn’t really want.

  • Sorry, I am taking this down from my wall … please don’t post on it any more …

  • Pam Veselinovic:

    All true, Mike. All true.

  • Shane (America 1st):

    You peice of fucking shit. So stupid, so ridiculously mind fucked by liberal sound bites. It’s actually entertaining to me to see how fucking retarded you people are for no reason. So dumb, hahahahah MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! BUILD THE FUCKING WALL & GO FUCK YOURSELF!!! TRUMP,TRUMP,TRUMP ; )

    • I want to thank you for your valuable, insightful and intelligent contribution here. It’s always important and indeed vital for dumbass mouth breathers to wade in on such serious issues if only to contribute something as salient and germane as the empty headed slogans and developmentally challenged rhetoric you’ve been so generous as to supply us with here.

      I commend you on your thoughtfulness and generosity in sharing your support of a racist, bigoted, misogynistic goddamn blowhard. Thank you so much for exemplifying the relative level of intelligence of someone who would support such a simple minded orangutan.

      Congratulations to you.

      Make America great again you fucking moron.

    • Elayne Johnson:

      I gather you’re a Trump fan. That’s good. I was willing to wait and see what he was going to do, but then he did it, and I was vindicated. Your “make America great again” hero isn’t going to change a damn thing. Just like Hillary wasn’t going to change a damn thing. Mr. “Complete Outsider” just picked every corporate owned, lobbyist controlled ESTABLISHMENT Republican, not to mention a well-known white supremacist, to his transition team. They in turn, will advise him to appoint the same corporate stooges and Establishment hucksters that have been there all along. Of course, to be fair, he couldn’t find anyone in our government who ISN’T an insider, since most of them have been there since Jesus was a boy. Trump knows less than nothing about the political workings of our government, or who it is that really wields the power. He will find out that he doesn’t have nearly as much muscle as he thinks he has, or thinks he will have. He found a way to captivate a portion of the Republican electorate by making them promises that he probably won’t be able to keep, if he ever intended to. He tuned in to a hoard of desperate people who have nearly reached the end of their rope, pretended to understand, and promised that he could fix it. What you don’t seem to realize is the fact that he is, in reality, a large part of the problem himself. He’s in the same brotherhood as Hillary and Obama, the corporate billionaires, and the shadow government, and we are not members of that club. We never will be. Why? Because they’ve spent the last four decades manipulating the system in their favor. They have become the house in a casino of power, greed, espionage, and manipulation. Everyone knows the house always wins. So if you think he’s come to save you, you should think again. He hasn’t come to save you, he’s come to slave you.

  • Nancy Lloyd:

    Well, this piece of writing took 74 words until the word ‘fuck’ was used.
    I strongly disagree with its entire fucking premise, that Hillary Clinton and the DNC are responsible for the soon-to-be presidency of Donald Trump and, apparently, the Republican congress as well. The election resulted from a combination of factors, which included all the things you dismissed, including sexism and Comey’s letter to congress eleven days before the election. The targeted misogyny, hate, and scandal-mongering that Hillary Clinton faced for decades led to a climax on November 8th. It was more about enchanted crowds chanting “Lock her up!” than about DWS’s emails. The red map that ended election day tells the tale about an Obama-hating white racist middle America that’s been seething for eight years. Not about Bernie not being the Democratic candidate. There’s no evidence that a 75-year old Jewish socialist would have done any better than Hillary. Polls from mid-June, when Hillary was also running, don’t show what would have happened in November after a bruising campaign.
    It’s a nightmare worse-case scenario, and we’d better think of the next step.

    • You absolutely insist on pretending the truth of the matter isn’t just wrong but that it doesn’t exist. I’m so sick of this intellectually lazy bullshit.

      People are angry and scared and she was a hopelessly flawed candidate that the party crammed down our throats. She failed utterly to address the exact things she needed to, to get these people’s votes and all people like you want to do is blame everything and everybody that have nothing to do with it.

      They were THE two most unpopular candidates to run for president in the history of polling and you want me to believe she was Jesus and he was Satan. She was just TWO points behind the biggest buffoon to EVER run in unfavorable ratings and her entire message was to vote for her because he was just a tiny bit worse.

      If you’re actually surprised she lost and think it had to do with anything other than being an awful candidate with a losing message it’s time for you to be embarrassed.

      You’re exactly the kind of voter that will ensure he gets eight years instead of four because you refuse to recognize or even try to understand what really happened here.

      Keep blaming everybody but her. Good luck with that. You’re not helping it all.

  • Pat:

    $hilLIARy Lost because she’s the most Corrupt, Win-at-All-Costs, Manipulating, Conniving, Spiteful, Revengeful, Bratty, Arrogant LYING “Politician” in my Life Time! This was only the second time in the 45 Years I was old enough that I registered to vote (for Bernie) and being in CA meant I had NO Excuses! We were next to the Last. I didn’t register to vote for Bill in ’92/’96 Because he was already a Criminal LYING Slime Ball by then……Long before then! and I didn’t register to vote for Hillbilly, that’s for sure. I see Trump’s winning as Sweet Justice. The Dems are acting worse than the Repubs did when Obama won. Whatever happened to Michelle and $HilLIARy’s rallying cry during the last couple weeks of the campaign: “When They go LOw…..WE go High” ?? They said it enough times that people in the audience started filling in the second part FOR them. At least I can stand to watch Trump. I have to literally change the channel if HRC comes on. Considering the things she already gets away with as a Private Citizen (she talked to Ecuador about stopping their protection of Assange….she got CNN to Cancel Dr. Drew Pinsky’s TV Show when he commented on her health, etc.) holding NO Official Office, the thought of HER having the FBI, CIA, the Military, FEMA, the Justice Dept., the Pentagon, the National Guard, the Attorney General ALL at Her beck and call terrified me! And, as this shows….so much for “temperament” ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NfFAaPZqs8

    • Marci gold:

      Are you for real? That diatribe of Hillary hate is part of what cost us this election. You have become an extremist who refuses to look at the entirety of this picture. So absolve yourself of all responsibility and keep that hatred high. It’s obviously making you feel better. Point a finger at someone else and get 3 fingers pointing back at you.

  • Cathy Rouse Page:

    Wake the Fuck up Democrats.
    No one to blame for Hillary Clinton losing but the Democratic Party.
    People can spin the election loss however they choose, but it boils down to where is the party for liberals and progressives?

  • Amy Pike:

    And now we literally have the wolves slathering at the sheepfold pen, as the head of freaking Exxon Mobil, for chrissakes, becomes our next Secretary of State. The slide into complete fascism is nearly complete.

    I knew Trump was just using their own dark arts against the media when I saw of all the various and sundry veterans charities that actually do a little bit of good, he picked the utter fraud machine that is “wounded warrior project”.

    Don’t blame me, though, I voted for Jill Stein. And it will probably be the LAST presidential candidate I ever vote for, the way things are going.

  • Danny:

    Store bought alcohol sucks, went touch the stuff.

  • Nick L. Eakins:

    The DNC only has itself to blame. They lost the election the very moment Bernie conceded. The DNC and Clintonistas were utterly oblivious to just how badly millions of people in the rural and Rustbelt states held the Clinton’s in absolute and unforgiving contempt.
