With news like this, why should I even get out of bed in the morning?

All are actual headlines from this morning’s news:

Another aspect of election interference by Russia.

I have been thinking about the 2016 election.  Clearly, the Russians wanted Trump to beat Clinton in 2016, few people besides Trump’s tweets doubt that these days. U.S. intelligence agencies agree that the Russians interfered with the election in multiple ways designed to undermine the Clinton campaign.

However, there is an element to all the talk about Trump/Russia collusion that I have not heard anybody mention.  What about the Republican primary process?  It wasn’t simply that the Russians wanted Clinton to lose, they also wanted their boy, Putin’s would-be sock puppet Trump to win.  So, don’t you wonder how much effort the Russians put in to making sure Trump won the nomination?  It takes no stretch of the imagination at all to see how the same techniques that were applied to undermining Clinton could be used against Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, or Chris Christi.  Did the Russians take active steps to help wreck the candidacies of Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, and Rick Santorum?  Did the Russians manipulate Republican primary voters the way they manipulated the electorate for the general election?

Is it possible that the entire Republican Party on the national scale is just a big Russian puppet show?  That would go a long way to explaining why the Republicans cannot get one damned thing on their agenda accomplished.  Their near total paralysis totally suits the Russian goal of disempowering the U.S. in world affairs.

Just something to think about…

PETA Hypocracy

I am fed up with those hypocrites over at PETA.  They want to seem all nice and caring and vituous and oh-so-just, but that is very easy to do when you’re siding with kittens and puppy-dogs and baby elephants.

So let me ask you: When was the last time you saw PETA protesting for monster rights?  See?  That’s right, the answer is “never.”  But we have basements and attics and warehouses and dungeons all over that are filled with werewolves,  lamia, lagoon creatures, arachne, sirens, and lord knows how many other monsters.  And why are they kept locked-up (in probably horrible conditions)?  All so that their precious bodily fluids can be systematically drained and turned into energy drinks.

I’ll bet you’ve even seen PETA members drinking those very same energy drinks.  It’s monsterous I tell you.  When will PETA turn away from their hypocritical ways and renounce monster abuse?  When will it end?

WTF?

So there I was at work, forced to listen to endless repetitions of Christmas music, and I could have sworn I heard a singer singing “on a one whore soap and slay…”  I’m assuming I may have heard that wrong.  Maybe.

Oh what fun!
