Added bonus, via the Washington Post:
So sorry, Trump nitwits, as you stand by your Crackpot Politics, and turn America spinning into ruin;
Great New Years graphic, by the way:

Breaking: Crackpot Republicans Just Banned The 1st Amendment On The Floor Of Congress

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard -- H. L. Mencken 

Bad news for democracy,via the Occupy Democrats website:

Here's the disturbing lede:
As if the American people needed any more warning that House Republicans were set to commit even more heinous acts of legislative terrorism once Donald Trump is sworn in, they just passed a bill to ban Democrats from filming or photographing the debates in the House Chamber. The proposed legislation would refer members of the House to the Ethics Committee and would levy [huge] fines against those who would record Congressional business.
And here's the gist:
It’s a clearly undemocratic move to shield the Republican-strangled House from the things they are already salivating at the thought of doing – like gutting Social Security and Medicare, and replacing them with a for-profit voucher system, repealing Obamacare, privatizing veteran’s healthcare, opening up our national parks for fossil fuel developers, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, passing abortion bans, deregulating Wall Street, slashing taxes for the rich and the wealthy…the list goes on and on. So much is at stake here, and the public MUST be aware of just exactly what these spineless, honorless cowards are planning to do to the working people of this country.
Read up, people:
As one of our Weber County Forum friends wisely opined this afternoon, "You know, I think a good rule of thumb is this: if you're a Congressperson or Senator doing something on the job you would be ashamed/embarrassed/damaged by if your constituents saw you doing it, maybe you shouldn't be doing it."

Prepare for an unprecedented onslaught on American civil liberties, people, as cretins like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell prepare to serve their corporate masters, and do their dirty deeds entirely behind closed doors.

Here's our sodden closing quote, as we contemplate all this:

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard -- H. L. Mencken

Happy 2017, people.

Breaking: The World Keeps Making Fun of Donald Trump

Donald Trump hates his satirical portrayal on Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the world is making the same jokes.

Absolutely priceless, no?

Breaking: Rob Bishop’s Utah Public Lands Initiative Defeated

The only pending question: How can can conscientious Utahns drive this fatass corporate-funded slut Rob Bishop outta the US congress?

Great news peeps

Here's the lede:
The 114th House of Representatives is history, taking its last votes of the year on December 8th. Unsurprisingly, Utah Republican Representative Rob Bishop’s Public Lands Initiative (PLI) did not come up for a vote. With only a single House co-sponsor (Jackass Utah Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz), and without a Senate sponsor, the bill failed to gain much-needed support, even among anti-public lands loyalists.

Thanks to solid and wide-ranging opposition from Native American tribes, the conservation and recreation communities, and two of the Utah counties the bill purported to represent, the PLI’s threat to Native American sovereignty and Utah’s wild public lands is, for now, put to rest.

Watch out however for further updates on this topic.

Crimson and Clover Redux

Out there in the ozone layer, your blogmeister became fascininated by this cute ditty:

We'd been haunted by this little ditty for years:
Then we found this:
We're on the path to even greater renditions of Crimson and Clover, wethinks, LOL!

Say hello to Crimson Clover, in the flesh.

Hubba-hubba, no?

Breaking: Totally Uneducated Rick Perry Will Replace a Nuclear Physicist as Secretary of Energy

Total GOP dumbass Rick Perry will replace an actual  nuclear physicist as Secretary of Energy:

Donald J. Trump's nominee for Energy Secretary Rick Perry is banking on glasses and muteness to alter the perception that he is an idiot, aides say.

Here's the ridiculous main story: Rick Perry, Ex-Governor of Texas, concerning Trump’s Pick as Energy Secretary.
Rick Perry, Ex-Governor of Texas, Is Trump’s Pick as Energy Secretary
Idiocracy is NOT mere fiction, people, as we learned in the 2016 election...

The plot sickens, people. US democracy stands on the brink of destruction, we think, with Donald Trump poised to assume the mantle of "leader of the USA," fewer than 45 DAYS hence

US democracy is on the brink of destruction, we think, with Donald Trump poised to assume the mantle of "leader of the USA," fewer than 45 DAYS hence

Via my politically smart FB friend Steve Gurr who sez this: "Trump gets caught lying and immediately attacks the person who outted him. Then the StormTrumpers come out of the woodwork. Welcome to the new America."

Read up, peeps:
And Mr Jones's terrible transgression against Der Fuhrer-elect Donald Trump? Here's the key story from the Washington Post, which set Mr. Trump's latest twitter lambasting afoot:

New Republic: Obama Can and Should Put Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court

A word to the wise ought to be sufficient, we hope

Throw a wrench into the sytsem, Obama
Waiver: a very tantalizing legal concept, NO???
I definitely concur with the politically savvy application of this tactic. Howbout you, WCF readers????

Read up:
Just do it, Obama: Come January, you will be consigned to the sidelines as Trump occupies the Oval Office and begins the work of dismantling your legacy. But there is one action that you could take on January 3, 2017 that could hold off some of the worst potential abuses of a Trump administration for a year or more, or perhaps indefinitely. You can lawfully appoint your nominee Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court,in between the two sessions of Congress.

A word to the wise ought to be sufficient, we hope.
