Funny: guy who gave felonious banks trillions warns public servants that social programs are expensive

Funny: guy who gave felonious banks trillions warns public servants that social programs are expensive

By Patrick Devlin In an apparent effort to highlight one of the reasons why Americans do not have universal health care, the federal minimum wage has not been raised in ten years and a vast majority of Americans live “paycheck to paycheck”, the fabulously spendy former president Barack Obama told a group(ie) meeting of recently elected Democrats that they should dream big, but watch the pennies, as they pursue fairness and equity for all Americans and robust environmental protection as legislators. With no obvious sense of irony, the former president, who presided over gifting private banking companies that are owned […]

Christian zealot, and US official, celebrates secret media mass

Christian zealot, and US official, celebrates secret media mass

by Patrick Devlin American Secretary of State, Mufti Mike Pompeo, called a press briefing prior to his leaving on a spiritual/political/imperialist sojourn to the ‘land of the Bible’ this week, without calling upon America’s press outlets. Gothi Pompeo instead summoned a select group of the chosen to receive the good news about his plot for the spiritual and economic domination of foreign peoples and lands. The media Saltigue were brought to communion at the behest of Dastur Pompeo who determined to exile journalists who are scribes for our nation’s heathen publications, including the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Iowa’s cracker King does the white nationalist thing

Iowa’s cracker King does the white nationalist thing

by Patrick Devlin Breaking news from Iowa, the land of the intolerant and ignorant: The unashamed cracker, Representative Steve King gave further demonstration to his constituents recently of his determination to continue to engage in racist tropes as he dog whistled derogatory comments negatively comparing his white voting base to people from New Orleans. Both groups are victims of catastrophic flooding. The intolerant and proud white nationalist Iowa politician told a group of red-necked constituents at a meet and greet yesterday, “We’re Iowans, and I’m always proud of our reaction to this… We go to a place like Iowa, and […]

Safety ain’t free, you know

Safety ain’t free, you know

by Patrick Devlin As Dotard Donnie keeps us winning, capitalists keep sinning, our rights keep thinning and planes keep spinning (out of the sky) we are reminded that, although capitalism has the awesome power to foist a dimwitted narcissistic and dangerous demagogue upon us, it can’t think about keeping us safe…unless we pay more; because – “Safety ain’t free, you know”…so sez the war-profiteering and hardly free market challenged outsized driver of oblivious commerce called Boeing. As planes get grounded on tarmacs across the globe and former passengers get permanently grounded in cemeteries, it has now been reported that Boeing’s […]

#BarbaraYankey Stuns Science with Discovery of Human Hair Heart Stopping Syndrome

#BarbaraYankey Stuns Science with Discovery of Human Hair Heart Stopping Syndrome

by Patrick Devlin cross posted at mLaw #BarbaraYankey, a self-described “scientist”, has made worldwide headlines again this week with her team’s discovery of what they are calling “Human-Hair Heart Stopping Syndrome.” The shocking discovery was reported by graduate student (meaning, not yet a doctor) #Yankey, who currently goes to school at Georgia State University. Yankey made headlines earlier this week when she reported that the cardiovascular risks of consuming #cannabis exceed those of consuming tobacco – a strange “scientific” finding given that the US government reports that tobacco kills more than 400,000 citizens every year and also has reported year […]

In the US, it’s a bizarro battle between the faith skeptics and the knowledge skeptics

bizarro news

By Patrick Devlin With reasonable America reeling from the breathtaking body-blows that the boorish, bigoted, ill prepared and incompetent Donald Trump regime has leveled on our body politic over the past few months, it appears that those who believe that simply de-Donalding the USA will #MAGA may be disappointed to find that the same Republicans whose voting antics brought forth #tRump’s America believe that higher education in general is a threat to our nation. In a poll recently conducted by the Pew Research Center, 58 percent of the respondents who identified as Republican said that higher education hurts our country. […]

Adelphi brings banana republic pomp to university lacrosse games

Adelphi brings banana republic pomp to university lacrosse games

The Athletic Director and Lacrosse coach at a private university on Long Island, NY have claimed that they “were obliged” to play a campaign speech of President Donald Trump that was set to music as the college’s men’s lacrosse team entered the playing field before games Adelphi Athletic Director, Danny McCabe, cited the policy adopted by the sports team regarding ‘warm-up’ music as having been followed explicitly. The policy directs that warm-up music must not contain “vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter.” McCabe apparently did not consider the aggressive promotion of xenophobic and military themes to be either vulgar or inappropriate, […]

Glass Ceilings, Maternal Instincts and Humanitarian War

Glass Ceilings,  Maternal Instincts and Humanitarian War

by Patrick Devlin I found out that we as a people (meaning Democratic party operatives) have finally broken through the glass ceiling with the nomination of Hillary Clinton to be their party’s candidate for president in 2016. And, we all know that America is woefully tardy when it comes to electing women candidates in primaries for presidential elections. Enlightened nations got the decades jump on the good ‘ol USA on this score – Golda Meir was the Prime Minister of Israel in the 1970’s, Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister of the UK in the 1980s and Angela Merkle is […]

30 percent is not a majority

30 percent is not a majority

by Patrick Devlin Only partisans ensnared by duopoly insist that there are only 2 choices in American elections. In 2012, 57 percent of American voters voted for president. Obama won 51 percent. Romney won 48 percent. That means the president was ‘elected’ by about 30 percent of American voters. It is not my fault that the status quo legacy parties have pursued a program to discourage voting reduce voter choice and stifle democracy in our country. Recall in the mentioned election, 2012, our presidential candidates chose to not debate about: imperial war and the cost of military industrialism, the failure […]

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

by Patrick Devlin As the bully-boy coward Donald Trump spoke at a rally at a Christian college on January 20 in Oklahoma, a gang of his middle-aged flabby thugs assaulted audience members who chose to silently protest the public event. Strangely, for this audience of self-proclaimed Christian Trump-thugs, no one mentioned the words of Jesus; “I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” The assaults have now become […]
