Bernie Sanders is still in the race, and even though he probably won't win, at least he can still force Biden to move more toward the correct side of politics with his vastly superior ideas.

At least one district is finally cracking down on churches that are openly defying social distancing laws, but it's not enough.

The Christian company Hobby Lobby refused to close its stores to protect their workers from COVID-19 because the owner's wife had a dream about Yahweh. But, since nobody is out shopping, they needed to save money, so they're simply firing some of their staff by mail and cutting wages for everyone else. It's what Jesus would do.

While talking about the 7-year-old boy who died at his tourist trap, Christian preacher Kent Hovind defended his park by saying said kids do "dumb things."

If you want to volunteer to care for sick people at Franklin Graham's COVID-19 tent hospital in Central Park, you'll first have to sign a waiver saying you're against same-sex marriage, and that you believe the LGBT, along with all other "sinners," should burn in hell forever!

I've added a page for the poorly made NES adaption of the MTV trivia show, Remote Control.

  • COVID-19 is still getting worse. We were surprised when we saw 100 deaths in one day back on March 23rd, but now, with the USA reaching almost double the number of cases of China, and seeing 500 deaths in a single day, Dr. Anthony Fauci is estimating as many as 200,000 deaths just in the USA. Republicans, who already did their victory lap are now utterly failing to step up.
  • So what is Trump doing to combat COVID-19? Is he working with scientists to expedite a vaccine? No. He's giving a platform to the My Pillow guy to preach Christianity and weakening emission standards.
  • A recap on the states which have not issued stay at home orders: Alabama - Republican Kay Ivey, Wyoming - Republican Mark Gordon, Texas - Republican Greg Abbott, Florida - Republican Ron DeSantis, Mississippi - Republican Tate Reeves... tell me if you can see a pattern.
  • How was China able to stop the virus so much faster than the USA?
  • I love watching women kicking ass in politics.
  • Without understanding the irony, Trump openly admits that Republicans would lose elections if everyone had easy access to voting.

  • It came out that Trump told Pence to ignore the medical requests of those states who aren't publicly praising him, especially my home state of Michigan because he didn't like the fact that the governor is a woman. This is him once again demanding a quid pro quo from dying people. After holding out for a couple days, he finally realized how bad this would affect his reelection, and sent some medical supplies, but only after several more Americans died. Trump has not only failed the American people, but he constantly blames them for his failure. Recently he argued that they reason hospitals don't have enough masks isn't because he was too slow to respond, but because health care workers can't use them responsibly.
  • Trump openly admitted that he will not comply with transparency measures with the $2,000,000,000,000 stimulus bill put in place to prevent him to stealing from the fund.
  • Despite Trump claiming the virus was totally contained and would be gone in February, he extended social distancing at the federal level to April 30th. His number of a mere 15 infected people who would get better and become 0, has skyrocketed to claiming 100,000 DEATHS would be a very good job! Turns out, Trump's lies can't stop a virus, but states who have taken charge without Trump sure can.
  • Republican Kathaleen Wall is happy COVID-19 is ravaging the world because she thinks it is actually saving lives! Her logic is, by shutting down many health care providers, the deadly virus has stopped some abortions.
  • The Republicans in charge of the EPA are using the pandemic to stop enforcing health and safety laws allowing companies to pollute with impunity.
  • Republican pastor Jerry Falwell Jr. demanded students at his Christian college return to school amid the pandemic, claiming that they had been in touch with medical professionals daily. This (was a lie, but close to 2,000 students and most faculty returned. Not surprisingly, many of them are now infected with COVID-19, and some of them will probably die.

The hospital where my wife and sister work has just taken in a bunch of COVID-19 patients now that Detroit hospitals are so overrun. They're going to be expected to treat them, even without proper safety gear. Please people, stay at home!

  • COVID-19 is still getting worse as Republicans continue to bungle their response to COVID-19, primarily because they refuse to challenge the ignorance of their orange messiah. This has resulted in the USA becoming the most infected nation in the world, with over 85,000 cases. Republicans are now being grilled on their many terrible decisions, and the answers aren't very reassuring. For example, when asked why they refused testing kits, they tried cherry-picking a retracted study to justify their actions! Trump's claim that chloroquine is looking like a cure for the disease is also based on bad science. As he sees his reelection slipping down the drain, Trump is mocking the advice of scientists and wanting to put people back to work even as the pandemic rages out of control. He's even taking a page from the book of despots before him by blaming everyone else, especially other races.
  • New York is the new epicenter for the disease, and it's causing Trump to throw even more tantrums than normal telling the state that they don't need more medical equipment. The reality is, doctors and nurses are being told to risk their lives with inadequate equipment, and it's killing them, but Trump is refusing to help because the Governors aren't flattering him enough!
  • Oklahoma Governor, Republican Kevin Stitt, is using his office to a "faith" promote a Christian-only praise event.
  • Christian pastor Landon Spradlin mocked the media for creating mass hysteria around COVID-19 to hurt Trump. He just died of COVID-19.
  • Like most Conservative leaders, Boris Johnson downplayed COVID-19 and kept UK schools open even after the disease was declared a global pandemic. He is now infected himself.
  • Fox actually makes sense when you assume all their criticism is directed at Trump.

  • COVID-19 is getting worse. Over 200 Americans died just yesterday. Last week, a record 3,300,000 Americans applied for unemployment, more in a week than any other time in American history. Brazil's ultra-conservative president, Jair Bolsonaro, is following Trump's lead calling local governments criminals for shutting down their districts while claiming COVD-19 is just "a little cold." Just like Trump, his lies are going to cause thousands of deaths. And, speaking of Trump, he still wants to open his golf courses the economy far too soon, and, rather than helping America-first, he's offering to help North Korea. Stay home folks, even Randy Rainbow is doing his patriotic duty unlike child-molesting Republican Roy Moore who wants to see more people out and about during the pandemic.
  • The Senate finally passed their stimulus bill, showing just how Socialist Republicans are when their lives are at stake.

I've added the Windows 95+ and Windows 98 screensavers to the Windows screensavers page, and a download link for all of them.

  • Republicans are proving once again they don't care about Americans. Trump still hasn't figured out just how wrong his initial predictions were, and, while there was a brief moment of lucidity, he's now back to saying he wants people to get out and run their lives within a couple week whether scientists say it's safe or not, and is even encouraging people to break quarantine and congregate for Easter! Every medical professional in the world is saying following Trump's advice would be catastrophic. Of course, Trump doesn't care about deaths, he cares about getting his golf courses open again and the lie he's banking his re-election on, that the economy is doing great. As if that weren't bad enough, Fox promoted Republican Dan Patrick who said the elderly who are the most at risk from COVID-19 don't need help and want to sacrifice their lives to keep the economy going.
  • Congress reached a deal on a $2,000,000,000,000 bailout for some (keyword, some) Americans, though they have yet to vote on it. Although Trump was pushing to give money to the owners of hotels, saying he would personally oversee anti-corruption measures, Republicans finally caved and added a provision that no business owned by the higher-ups in Congress, the White House, or their families, would be allowed to get this money. Still, this bill is far from perfect, and really, many of the people who will be receiving money are people that are still working full hours for full pay (i.e., they don't need the money as badly as the people who are laid off).
  • A few days ago, Trump suggested a malaria medicine could stop COVID-19. There wasn't any hard evidence, because it's far too early for clinical testing to be completed, but facts have never affected Trump's confidence before. Well, a couple took what they thought was the medicine Trump was talking about. One is in the hospital, the other is dead.
  • Lest we forget, Trump can barely speak English.

Many churches are remaining open during the pandemic seeing it as a test of their faith, and, surprise surprise, they're spreading COVID-19 among their congregation.

I've started a page documenting the various Windows screensavers bundled with the OS over the years. I have many more to add, but I need to get a proper emulator working for older Windows platforms to get accurate screenshots.

  • Over the weekend, COVID-19 soared to 350,000 cases world wide with 15,000 deaths and the Surgeon General says it's only going to get worse! But Trump is still not convinced the pandemic is that bad, and when he's not whining like a bitch, he's pushing fake cures that are going to get people killed. When asked why he doesn't stop Trump from his constant lies about COVID-19, one of the few competent people left in the Executive Branch, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said, "I can't jump in front of the microphone and push him down." Sadly, this is true, but what a wonderful world it would be.
  • Republicans failed to pass their stimulus bill in the Senate because they want to let companies use the stimulus money on stock buy-backs, and let Trump personally benefit from the stimulus, and the Democrats wisely won't let them. Although Republicans have the majority, several Republican Senators are in quarantine and thankfully can't vote. Ironically, the virus is helping to keep them from ruining the country even further.
  • Republicans in the Department of Justice are asking to be allowed to ignore most laws and safety measures to protect innocent people. Their proposed emergency powers are written so broadly they include the right to arrest and search people without cause and the right to imprison people indefinitely without charge or trial. Thankfully, Democrats are in charge of the House, and they will most likely prevent this, but imagine where we would be if the blue wave didn't occur?
  • Mississippi Governor, Republican Tate Reeves, who should be working non-stop to ensure the safety of his state, took the morning off to preach his brand of Christianity from his office and Florida Republican Bryant Culpepper told people to use a hair dryer on their nose to kill COVID-19. He's wrong, and doctors told him as much, but he continues so spout his nonsense proving once again that Republicans are an anti-science party. Looks like he finally issued a sort-of retraction.
  • One silver lining to COVID-19, is that viruses don't care how much money or notoriety a person has, so even terribly rich people are getting infected like serial rapist Harvey Weinstein and the man who voted against helping people with the disease, Republican Rand Paul.
  • Trump's new acting Chief of Staff (acting because he wasn't properly vetted) is Republican Mark Meadows, a Christian Nationalist who has used his political career to inject Christianity into government.

I've added a page for the TV series, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.

  • As the death toll of COVID-19 rises, Republicans continue to use the pandemic for political and financial gain. After failing to react quickly, a mistake which will keep the US in a state of emergency for much longer than it needs to be, Republicans are begging states and journalists not to talk about the now record unemployment levels for fear it will hurt Trump's reelection chances. Also, Republican Richard Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, used his early knowledge of the virus to inform a group of his rich friends about the potential market crash due to the incoming virus, and personally sold off $1,700,000 in stock to guarantee he would profit from the pandemic. Although many are calling for him to resign, he should be put in prison, and, everyone he spoke to should be investigated for insider trading. Not surprising, Republican Burr was one of the men who voted to keep Congress immune to insider trading laws.
  • Calling COVID-19 a "Chinese" virus isn't racist, but, going out of your way to blame all Chinese people for the virus, certainly is. Also, people don't talk about the virus in a vacuum. If a scientist is talking about the origin of the virus and mentions China, they're probably not being racist. However, if a person has a long history of racism, from not renting apartments to people of color to not letting people of color work in his casinos, when he purposely crosses out "corona" and writes in "Chinese," he's probably being racist. Using seemingly innocuous words to hide a more sinister message is an example of dog-whistle politics.
  • Republican Andy Biggs defended his decision to vote against the COVID-19 relief bill because it wasn't anti-gay enough for him.
  • Amid this pandemic, Republicans are continuing to fire experienced people who disagree with them, and replace them with incompetent loyalists. Russell Travers, head of the National Counterterrorism Center, a man with 40 years of counter-terrorism experience, has been fired for not being loyal enough to Trump. Republicans have only further weakened our nation's ability to fight terrorism.
  • Trump is a moron.

It's nice to see late-night comedians continuing to do their shows from home, and pointing out the sad truth, only rich people are getting tested for COVID-19.

Vincent Gerard Ryan, a Catholic priest who has been convicted four times for sexually assaulting 30 children still believes he has a right to remain a priest, and, unshockingly, the Catholics church hasn't excommunicated him.

  • COVID-19 is still spreading, the US has now seen almost 10,000 cases with 150 deaths, and Trump, who, until just a few days ago, was calling the pandemic a "Democratic hoax," is now invoking war-time powers! We've reached the point where only 1/3 of Americans believe him, which is 1/3 too many.
  • The massive layoffs occurring as we try to combat the disease are causing millions to seek unemployment, but, since Republicans have been cutting unemployment for decades, offices around the nation have been overwhelmed and can't handle all the requests.
  • Christian preacher Jerry Falwell Jr. went on TV to spread the lie that COVID-19 was an attack by Democrats against Trump, and that people were panicking over nothing, only to shut down his school a few days later. When one of the parents rightly pointed out that the some of the students were probably infected because Falwell didn't act sooner, and were now going home infect their older parents, Falwell called him a dummy and said that, despite most cities being shut down, every single one of his students would somehow get a summer job away from home.

To combat misinformation about COVID-19: Using NSAIDs like ibuprofen to treat the symptoms of COVID-19, is perfectly safe and effective. Regular soap does indeed kill the virus. The government can't stop it, you have to change your behavior. N-95 masks are in short supply because they're also largely produced in China, so don't buy them and let the professionals have them.

  • COVID-19 has surpassed 200,000 cases, with over 100 deaths in the USA alone. Canada has closed its border with the USA to all non-essential traffic. The stock market continues to tank. Republican Devin Nunes, after telling Americans to go to a pub or take their family to a restaurant because they wouldn't have any trouble getting in, is now claiming that he meant for people to get drive-thru. I guess, In Devin's world, there are wonderful drive-thru pubs, and you need to bring your whole family to "get in" to a drive-thru. Trump, after calling the virus a hoax for weeks, is now saying he knew it was a pandemic even before the doctors at the WHO. Republican Rand Paul has potentially killed a COVID-19 relief bill, which would have given Americans free testing and paid leave, by adding a bunch of completely unrelated riders including giving Trump even more military financial powers. COVID-19 wasn't caused by Republicans, but their greed and incompetence has hugely exacerbated the problem. They can't be trusted to lead the nation, and, until we kick them out of office, we have to rely on ourselves.
  • Churches are also making COVID-19 much worse than it needs to be. In addition to profiting off of it — Trump's religious adviser, Christian pastor Paula White, is asking for $91 donations — some of them are inviting infected people into their church congregation claiming they can cure the virus!
  • The White House is running at about quarter capacity, and it continues to weaken. Trump's pick for the Secretary of the Office of Personnel Management, Dale Cabaniss, has just abruptly quit saying Trump's people were micromanaging and disrespecting her.
  • Republican Duncan Hunter is heading to prison for not even a year after embezzling a quarter of a million dollars.

Pew Forum just released the results of an interesting poll. They asked Americans what comes to mind when they think about specific religions, and recorded the results. For example, when asked what comes to mind when they say "Catholicism," most Americans answered, "the pope." However, when the religion mentioned was "Judaism," most Americans answered, "Jesus," which, okay, he was a Jew, but, not exactly that important to their religion. When asked about "Atheism," the second more popular answer was, "Satan!"

I've started a page for the IBM Personal Computer.

  • Why has the US been so slow to respond to COVID-19? Because Republicans crippled literally every government institution. First, they cut the budget and fired staff from every department including the entire pandemic response team. Trump said he didn't do it, and doesn't know anything about it, but here is a 2018 video of him describing precisely why he did it. Second, every department is now being run by people who don't even know what their department does, let alone how to run it. This is why, despite their lies that the economy is booming, they're constantly begging for more money. Meanwhile, Trump's supporters change their opinions of the virus to match Trump's ignorant whims. When Trump was calling the virus a Democratic hoax, they were blaming the media for creating a panic over nothing, but, now that Trump has shut down travel and declared a state of national emergency, suddenly they've taken a very somber tone, claiming the disease is horrible and only America can stop it! Of course, the reality is, Republicans have once again failed their country because they were too busy worrying about Trump's reelection than the safety of Americans, so it's up to local governments to maintain order and solve this problem.

The American Christian masturbation fest known as the Museum of the Bible just received some bad news, all of their supposed Dead Sea scrolls are forgeries.

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that people can be fired for refusing to do their job, even if they claim doing their job is against their religion.

  • Before COVID-19 made its way into the USA, but long after Republicans were informed of the spreading virus, they presented their new budget proposal which called for further cuts to American health organizations. Now that COVID-19 has started killing Americans, and over 13,000 people have become infected, have Republicans seen their mistake and removed the CDC cuts from their new budget? Nope! They're just as enthusiastic as ever to cut $9,500,000,000 from the Heath and Human Services, $1,200,000,000 from the Center For Disease Control, and $35,000,000 from the Infectious Diseases Rapid Response Reserve Fund. They're also still dead-set on cutting various safety net programs like food stamps just as people are beginning to lose their jobs. Meanwhile, the disease has killed over 6,000 people globally, stock markets continue to tank despite corporations being given $1,500,000,000,000 in cheap loans and the Federal Reserve setting the national interest rate to near zero, Republican Devin Nunes, against the advice of every medical professional in the world, tells Americans to get out there and have fun, Conservatives continue to use the virus as an excuse to be racist, and, during all of this, Trump is busy utterly failing to assuage people's fears, claiming he's not getting himself tested (yeah, right!), trying to poach German scientists for an America-only vaccine after refusing tests because he didn't want to look bad, and telling us that Google is building a website to screen for the virus, a claim Google knew nothing about!
  • Religious people are handling the virus in a similar manner, with Evangelical Christians, who view Trump as their god, claiming COVID-19 is a deep-state conspiracy created by Liberals to discredit Trump and profiting off their followers' fear and gullibility.
  • Amid the pandemic, Trump is busy thinking about which of his convict friends to pardon.

A lot of churches are refusing to close down during the pandemic and mocking those that do. The archbishop of Poland even went as far to say that people should continue to take communion because his god will prevent the spread of germs when faithful believers swap spit.

I've added a page for my favorite Billy Joel album, The Stranger and updated my list of hard ciders.

  • COVID-19 continues to get worse, more people have died, more institutions are shutting down, and more Republicans are using it as an excuse to be racist. This was all bound to happen because, for the past 3 years, Trump has been making deeper and deeper cuts to US disease preparedness including firing 700 CDC employees, including many high-level positions! Republicans are trying to solve the problem by giving out $1,500,000,000,000 in loans, not to people of course, but to corporations. This is not the same as a bailout, because the corporations have to pay back the loans with a tiny markup, but it's the MO of Republicans that they always abandon people in order to save companies. Thankfully, some politicians are making progress like Democrat Katie Porter who, after a barrage of questions the CDC chief failed to adequately answer, finally convinced him to agree to free testing. Although, at this point, it's probably too little, too late.
  • Texans are finally starting to realize just how disruptive Trump's useless border wall is, but it took massive destruction and disruption.
  • Republican Roy Moore is trying to ban same-sex marriage because you can always trust the guy who got kicked out of the mall for sexually harassing teenage girls to teach you about family values.
  • Pew released the results of a new poll, and it shows that the majority of white Evangelical Christians still believe that Trump is honest, morally upstanding, and fights for what they believe in. This shows the rest of the world what everyone raised in it already knew, white Evangelical Christians in America are absolute hypocrites and worship evil people.

A student the private Christian school, Bob Jones University, told the administrators that their pastor, Jonathan Alan Weaver, had sexually assaulted her multiple times, starting from the age of 15, and she was now pregnant with his child. The administrators told her that she should quit school because she wasn't where she was supposed to be the night the pastor assaulted her. After another 15 years of living with the guilt, the student finally told police, and Christian pastor Jonathan Alan Weaver was arrested. With the arrest in the papers, Bob Jones University was forced to comment on their failure, and finally apologized for their failure.

Hello Mike. Glad you're reading this!

  • In the hopes it will make him look good to his supporters, Trump has surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban under the guise of calling it a "peace deal." This will put a pathetic end to a war that George W. Bush began in 2001 after the US was attacked by... Saudi Arabian terrorists. The Afghanistan war has been falling apart for some time, and all of the headway made by the initial invasion has been lost. In fact, the Taliban currently controls most of Afghanistan, more now than it did prior to the invasion! The US and NATO forces will withdraw within the next couple months, and release 5,000 Taliban prisoners. So, what did the US demand in return? The release of a couple thousand Afghani soldiers, a promise that the Taliban won't use Afghanistan to launch a terrorist attack against the US, and a bill estimated between one and two trillion dollars making this the second most expensive war the US has ever been involved in (WWII being the first). The US didn't even involve the government of Afghanistan in the negotiations, and they aren't happy with the results. We're just cutting our massive losses leaving them with a serious mess. This will most likely result in the Taliban overrunning the entire country and turning it into a militant Islamic nation. I didn't expect anything more from the Republican party.
  • To give you an idea at just how thoroughly Republicans have bungled their response to COVID-19, here they are trying to pray it away! For some reason, that image didn't fill investors with much hope for the future.
  • Trump broke the law when he appointed Republican Ken Cuccinelli, a man with extreme anti-immigration views, to head the Citizenship and Immigration Services without Senate approval.
  • Trump's friendly felon Roger Stone is trying to get his already reduced sentence lowered even more by claiming to have found Jesus after only a few days in prison.
  • The wannabe dictator continues to try to eliminate the US safeguards that prevent dictators.

As an open atheist, I am frequently asked, aren't you afraid of hell?

  • People all over the world are dying from COVID-19, and the virus has found its way into the USA despite Trump's collapsing border wall. And even though he's cut funding to every organization that would have been able to help, Trump is so stupidly confident that America will be immune, that he hasn't even bothered to appoint a virologist to address the issue. Instead, Trump is doing what he always does, he's putting in charge a man who has absolutely no experience or education on the matter whatsoever, Mike Pence. I feel safe already.
  • With all the damage constantly being inflicted on the country from Republicans, it's easy to overlook the fact that they refuse to keep guns out of the hands of violent people. Because of this, mass shootings that are still occurring on a daily basis. In Wisconsin, a disgruntled employee at Molson Coors went on a shooting spree and killed five of his co-workers before killing himself.
  • Trump is very pleased with his visit to India where state police violently attacked protesters, killing 35 people. And, while most people would be thrilled to taste Indian cuisine prepared by some of the best chefs in the country, or, at the very least taste it out of politeness, Trump refused all of food that was offered to him because it had vegetables in it.

Things continue to heat up in the Democratic primary debates. So far, nothing that has been said by the centrists has pulled me away from my favorites, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

In order to write a review, and just to enjoy it a second time, I again played through Half-Life: Blue Shift.

  • We're in the midst of a global pandemic from COVID-19, and Trump has slashed funding to the Center of Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the Health and Human Services. But, rather than admit he made yet another mistake, Trump is bragging that cutting every department that keeps Americans healthy was a good thing, and is instead attacking news organizations for reporting the facts.
  • While in India, Trump is faced with his biggest fear. No, not the poverty. No, not the rioting. No, not the racism, authoritarianism, or even having to speak. His greatest fear of all, vegetables.
  • US Border Patrol agent Jesus Mesa Jr. shot and killed a 15-year-old Mexican boy, while the boy was still on Mexican soil, having never entered the USA. The Mexican government charged Mesa with murder, but the US refused to extradite him. The Mexican government tired to sue the US government for killing the boy, but US courts ruled that the human rights only apply to Americans. The case was appealed to the US Supreme Court and the Republican judges agreed that the US government can not be held liable for government agents shooting across the border and killing Mexicans! This is how wars begin.

Elizabeth Warren remains a bad ass and media outlets are showing Bernie Sanders plunging way down into first place.

Police officer Dennis Turner and his partner handcuffed and hauled away a crying six-year-old girl who was fingerprinted and had a mugshot taken. The entire time Turner was gleeful and bragged about the other 6,000 children he's arrested because he's just too damned incompetent to deal with a child without being a vicious bully. If this is how abusive he is to children, imagine how abusive he is with adults! Thankfully, Turner was fired, not because what he did to the child was horrifying, but because he was supposed to get approval from his superiors before arresting a child, but he failed to follow police procedure.

  • Trumps abortion of justice continues as he demands that Supreme Court Justices who were nominated by Democrats recuse themselves for all cases that have anything to do with him. No doubt, Trump is still pissed that Republican judge Jeff Sessions recused himself from Trump's criminal presidential campaign, and, after learning that was a thing, now thinks recusal means every judge he doesn't like must be removed from his many criminal lawsuits.
  • At least 10 Indian citizens have been killed in Delhi as law enforcement fought back the populace protesting Donald Trump's visit with dangerously racist Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and a bunch of rich Indians.

  • Trump has bankrupted the US government putting the deficit back to what Obama inherited after Bush crashed the economy. And now he wants another $1,000,000,000 to fight COVID-19. Of course, since he only hires people based on their loyalty to him, and not their ability, nobody in the White House has even the slightest idea how to address the virus.
  • In order to cover up their many crimes Republicans have taken to simply burning all of their documents.
  • Donald Trump's boss, Vladimir Putin, is rewriting Russia's constitution, in addition to removing term limits for himself, they plan on re-writing their own history, enshrining Orthodox Christianity, further hatred of the LGBT, and plenty more to fear.
  • A recap of one of the most corrupt and ridiculous displays in injustice I've ever seen, Trump's impeachment and acquittal.

I've added a page for an old BASIC game, International Bridge Contractors.

  • US intelligence agencies are once again saying the Russians are interfering with the USA election, but they're taking a a step further this time and clearly stating that Russia is working to help Trump get re-elected. When Trump heard about this he got very angry, not that the Russians were helping him win, he was fine with that, he got mad because the truth would make him look bad.
  • Prosecutors for the Trump's criminal friend Roger Stone suggested he receive 7-9 years in prison for his many crimes. However, Trump whined about it, and his Republican lackey William Barr refused to accept the recommendation of his own prosecutors and urged everyone to go easy on Stone. Trump then attacked the Judge in charge of sentencing Stone, and, it clearly worked, because the Judge ended up giving Stone an incredibly lenient sentence of only 3 year, 4 months. Meanwhile, Crystal Mason, a black woman, received 5 years for voting while on parole.
  • Apparently, the President of the United States of America has nothing better to do with his time to complain about movies. In this case, he's angry the "Parasite" won so many awards, but admits he hasn't seen it and doesn't even know what it's about, so why is he mad? Because the film was made by foreigners. Trump instead says we should be awarding films that feature a lot of racism and women being raped by their spouses.
  • Trump supporter Brittan J. Atkinson is in custody after making a long series of murder threats to people investigating Trump.
  • Trump's Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was caught on record saying what everyone already knows, Republicans only claim to care about the deficit when a Democrat is in power.

Wouldn't it be nice if political debates weren't just a bunch of people saying lies and half-truths without any fact-checking from the moderators?

Following in the footsteps of the Boy Scouts of America which has just declared bankruptcy because it had too many child rapists in their ranks, the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg Pennsylvania has just declared bankruptcy as well for the same reason. In Ohio, Catholic priest Robert McWilliams is going to prison for charges of child pornography and child prostitution. Catholic Southern Baptists are also trimming out several churches with sexual predators from among their flock. It's nice to see people are finally starting to take child rape seriously.

A postmortem on the game Portal.

Mr. Deity doesn't understand the Me Too movement.

Richard Dawkins claimed that eugenics "works," in the sense that we can breed humans for specific traits, the same way we breed animals. Sure, we could breed people to be taller, stronger, and faster, and even more intelligent, but at what cost? Look at how breeding has created serious problems for nearly all of the animals and plants we've bred. But most importantly, the eugenics movement isn't calling for just biological change, but for political, cultural, and moral change. This seems to be the true failure of eugenics: even if you understand the biology perfectly, if you don't know what the optimal result should be, you can't breed toward it.

Whodunnit? Obviously the butler.

I finished reading The Silent Patient. Not a bad murder mystery.

  • Now that he knows he can literally get away with anything and his spineless Republicans will defend him to the death, Trump isn't even trying to keep his crimes under wraps. His latest foray into corruption was telling Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, that he would pardon him if he would go on record and state that there is no evidence of Trump's collusion with Russia.
  • Trump appointed another lackey to a position where he has absolutely no experience. Republican Richard Grenell's only qualification is that he is fiercely loyal to Trump, and now he runs all 17 US espionage agencies.
  • As more Conservative judges are appointed to the courts, thanks to an abuse of power from Republican Mitch McConnell, some highly ridiculous rulings are being made. For example, Christian crosses are not religious symbols if they're old. How old? Doesn't matter.
  • A judge has ruled that the ramshackle prisons created by Arizona Republicans to imprison refugees are so horrible, they're a violation of the human rights of the people kept in them. Whether Republicans will do anything about this remains to be seen.
  • Although Republican Attorney General William Barr shed big crocodile tears over Trump demanding he protect his friend Roger Stone, and said he wished Trump would stay out of it and let him do his job, incorrigible Trump continues to make public demands of Barr, telling him he needs to fire anyone who isn't loyal to Trump.

The problems for the Catholic order the Legion of Christ keep growing. Not only has their leader, Vladimir Reséndiz Gutiérrez, been accused of sexually assaulting at least 60 children, but now it turns out his organization was paying children to lie in court to protect him!

I beat the beatable modes in the Game Boy Color game, Tetris DX.

  • Trump has declared himself America's "chief law enforcement officer," which is not in his job description, and is especially insulting considering his recent criminal pardons include Republican police commissioner Bernard Kerik (found guilty of tax fraud, lying to law enforcement, accepting bribes from several people, and employing an illegal immigrant) and billionaire Michael Milken (found guilty of insider trading, stock manipulation, tax evasion, and 98 counts of racketeering and fraud!)
  • Trump's disaster trade wars with countries that buy American crops have made life especially difficult for farmers. So difficult, in fact, that farm bankruptcies have reached an 8-year high.
  • Republicans are up in arms over a bill that would regulate how they are able to father children. Gosh, imagine their ire if the bill only affected women!
  • Republicans make a lot of claims about universal healthcare, too bad they're all terrible arguments.

  • Republicans are again temporarily thwarted from creating another voter-id law after a judge explains how it was specifically created to discriminate against the poor and racial minorities.

  • To prove he's tough on crime, Trump pardoned yet another criminal.
  • There is a lot to love about Bernie Sanders.

BluRay may have better resolution, but, as a format, it's really annoying.

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for bankruptcy due to over 300 lawsuits from men who say they were sexually molested by leaders. Too bad they weren't a religion, they seem to rape children and remain quite resilient.

Portland police are cops-for-hire, especially when it comes to racism. Fearing a black employee would make bring a lawsuit of racial discrimination against him, Eric Benson convinced his friend, Detective Tony Reeves to illegally spy on his employee and arrest him for several baseless crimes in the hopes of smearing the black man's name so he would lose the potential lawsuit. Unfortunately for Benson and Reeves, their text messages describing their plan of illegal spying, wrongful arrest, and a strong desire to have racists violently attack the black man were made public. Once these text messages were made public, the police dropped all the charges, but this gave the black man ample evidence to win his racial discrimination lawsuit against Benson, and, even though police lawyers argued that they were immune to prosecution because they were just doing their jobs, but they also lost their lawsuit and had to pay $600,000 of taxpayer money for wrongful arrest. Sadly, true justice was not served as Reeves, the racist officer who orchestrated the whole mess, wasn't punished and was instead promoted for his crimes! It's horrifying real life stories like this that make it so important to believe people who accuse others of racism.

I've made an attractive graphic to honor this romantic holiday. I also made a screensaver similar to the old Windows Mystify program, I call it Mystique.

  • Bernie Sanders is leading the pack again this election cycle.
  • With Mayor Pete Buttigieg remaining high in the polls, Republican homophobic slurs are beginning to intensify. Consider Republican Warren Hurst who said, "We've got a queer running for president, if that ain't about as ugly as you can get!" Certainly not as ugly as your bigotry, sir.
  • Trump's tax cuts for the wealthy have bankrupted the US government, so, Trump cut the scheduled pay raise for government employees by more than half, all the while claiming the economy is great!
  • Republicans are stealing $3,800,000,000 more from the military to pay for a wall that experts agree will not work. That money could have been spent on veteran healthcare, but Republican's don't want healthy veterans, they want fewer brown people.
  • Many Trump supporters have a cult-like adoration for their dear leader to the point where, even when you point out an obvious truth, like that he isn't very sincerely pro-life, and never has been, they will attack their own friends and family with intense fervor.
  • When you lie all the time, even about trivial matters, you often find yourself inadvertently exposing your lies. Trump spent months denying that he ever sent Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine culminating in the blackmail of the nation, but on TV, he forget his lie and admitted to it.
  • Punishing whistleblowers helps corruption, which is precisely why Trump is doing it.
  • It's nice to see veterans who have the courage to put a draft-dodger and veteran hater like Trump in his place, even if it takes having to work for him before they wise up.
  • Roger Stone is now relying on a lawyer used by mobsters, as Trump continues to pressure the Attorney General to go easy on his crony.
  • Meet the heroic women who impeached Trump.

Prager University is not a university. It's a bunch of Conservative white men with bad arguments who are homophobic, misogynistic, and really racist.

I've added a page for the Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers song, Mary Jane's Last Dance.

  • After childishly firing everyone involved in his impeachment, and even uninvolved family members, Trump continues his attack on justice. He convinced his Attorney General to refuse to consider his own prosecutors sentence recommendation for Roger Stone, a man found guilty of seven crimes, and now he's attacking the judge doing the sentencing, before she even makes her ruling, simply because it's the same judge who presided over another one of Trump's criminals, Paul Manafort.
  • It's illegal to wear a mask in public in Washington D.C. if you are intent on intimidating or threatening people, so why do white supremacists get to do it? Probably because the current Republican administration doesn't view white supremacists as bad.
  • When Trump held his KKK rally in Michigan, he promised his budget would include money to help stop the invasive Asian carp from destroying the Great Lakes. As expected, he lied.
  • Worried about the corona virus? Don't be, Trump is working on it the same way he works on everything at the White House, by doing nothing. Well, that and wanting to have sex with his daughter.
  • Republican Joey Hensley is very upset that if women can buy feminine hygiene products tax free, they'll buy too many.

Something fishy is going on at the University of North Carolina, and it involves a statue built to honor racists, a white supremacist group, and $2,500,000. Fifty years after the US Civil War ended, a statue called "Silent Sam" was erected on the campus of UNC. In the monument's dedication speech, white supremacist Julian Carr said the statue would remind students that the KKK's "courage and steadfastness saved the very life of the Anglo Saxon race in the South." Ever since the 1960s, the monument had been protested, and it finally came to a head in 2018 when it was finally toppled. This didn't sit well with the "Sons of Confederate Veterans," a group that continues to honor the KKK to this very day. They threatened to sue UNC for failing to protect the statue and, literally two minutes after their lawsuit was filed, before the University's lawyers could even read the brief, the University offered to give $2,500,000 to the racist group to protect, display, and maintain the statue! They made no attempt to fight the lawsuit, they didn't have a public meeting about what to do, they didn't even alert the media. This shows that the people in charge of the University's money were willing to pay handsomely to have it re-displayed, and the lawsuit from a racist group was just a flimsy pretext with which to do it. Thankfully, a judge just ruled that the lawsuit filed by the racist Sons of Confederate Veterans lacked standing, so the huge transfer has been canceled. Now, if the UNC either has to hope for another frivolous lawsuit, or admit they want to waste their donor's money on fixing a racist statue.

Van Koinis, an antivaxxer doctor, just killed himself, possibly because he felt so guilty about lying to parents and giving their children fake medicine.

I've created an image to honor Charles Darwin for Darwin Day and made several new pages for some of my favorite Internet shows.

  • Trump's friend Roger Stone was found guilty of seven different crimes including lying to Congress, fraud, and witness tampering. To prove he's a "law and order" president, Trump complained that it was wrong for Stone to actually be punished for all his crimes, and, since the head of the Justice Department is Trump sycophant William Barr, he decided to ignore federal prosecutors and not punish Stone according the their recommended length. The hypocrisy is thick because Trump whined all the time that the previous presidents had too much control over their Attorney Generals. In a show of solidarity against the corrupt Republicans, all four prosecutors resigned. Meanwhile, the "law and order" president is attacking those people who did their duty to the US Constitution and impeached him.
  • Virginia Republican Michael Webert invited a preacher, Robert Grant Jr., to the House floor to pray, but he gave a sermon instead claiming his god's wrath would fall on anyone who approves of same-sex marriage and abortion. In his defense, the preacher said, "If you don't want to hear what a pastor has to say, then don't invite one." I think they should definitely take him up on his offer.
  • Kentucky Republicans forced drivers to use a license plate which claiming they trust in some god. They have no problem forcing their religious beliefs down people's throats, but when a driver decided to put his own religious message on his vanity plate with the letters "IM GOD," they cried oppression!

  • Trump has a lot of friends who are criminals including Roger Stone who was found guilty of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and wire fraud. Prosecutors are seeking 7-9 years in prison, an extremely lenient sentence in my opinion, but Trump, who claims to be tough on crime, believes punishing criminals is a miscarriage of justice, and since his fellow Republicans do whatever he tells them to do, the Justice Department is trying to make his sentence even easier.

Jeffries then discovered that the mother had listed her as the preferred placement for the child, and suddenly, the "Pro-Life Wife," made every excuse in the book to not have to be burdened with raising a child. Jamie Jeffries is unwilling to help children the moment it becomes inconvenient to her. Like so many Christians before her, she isn't pro-life, she's pro-birth.

Last night I beat the Game Boy game, Garfield Labyrinth, which the the European version of The Real Ghostbusters.

  • True to form, spineless Republicans bent under and voted to continue to have Trump as their messiah. Trump, just to prove he doesn't care about laws wrote a post like a middle school student declaring himself the best president "4EVA," and said he intends to violate the US Constitution further by ignoring term limits. Republicans had their shot at finally stopping their violent toddler, but instead, they begged him to keep throwing tantrums.
  • ICE continues to rape and murder refugees seeking asylum.
  • When Congress is made up largely of people who are bribed by corporations, you have to expect companies like AT&T to openly defy them and receive only a slap on the wrist.
  • Republican Beau LaFave, brought an assault rifle into the Michigan House of Representatives in hopes it would make people think he was a tough guy. A few days later, his house was broken into, and his guns, which were loaded and not kept in a safe, were stolen. LaFave's carelessness has just helped criminals get guns.
  • Democrats continue to shoot themselves in the foot.

I've added a page for the platformer video game genre.

  • As is typical for Republicans, they deny it ever happened, then, when caught lying, admit it happened, but say it doesn't matter. Republicans are conspiring to keep Trump out of prison, and, sadly, it's working, because these are the people who vote for Trump.
  • Trump's State of the Union address was, once again, just a bunch of lies and spectacles that are the lowest of the low.
  • Rush Limbaugh claims he has been diagnosed with lung cancer. He's a horrible racist misogynistic bigot, so I'm not upset that he's dying, but I am upset that Trump chose to award his racism with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Not like it's a huge honor, it's been bestowed upon other horrible people like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Mother Teresa.
  • Republican Rodney Garcia, the man who said it's legal to shoot people based on their political beliefs, has been asked to resign, even by members of his own party, but he says that will only happen if his god tells him to resign.
  • Republican Jason Rapert wants to pull funding from PBS because one of their programs will feature a gay man.

I've added a page for the Tim Minchin song Rock N Roll Nerd and started a page for Visual Basic.

  • Because Republicans worship Trump as their god, they can't accept the fact that he could ever be wrong, even when clearly wrong, so they defend his ignorance.
  • The lone Republican who voted to hear witnesses in Trump's hearing to remove him from office is now being blacklisted.
  • The Republican plan for peace in Palestine is a farce. Jared Kushner, who knows nothing about Palestine or Israel basically told Israel to give him a list of things they wanted, ignored Palestine, and then verbally attacked Palestine through the entire process, and called it a peace plan.

The term "forever chemicals" is vague and meaningless.

In a town hall meeting gathered to talk about their problem with high school students shouting "white power," a father was describing the bullying his son was receiving in school because of the color of his skin when Michigan racist Tom Burtell asked him why he didn't stay in Mexico and told a reporter that the real problem was black people being racist against white folk.

Last night, I beat the adventure game The Frostrune.

  • There was a glimmer of hope that just a handful of Republicans would grow a backbone and vote for justice, but they remain spineless slaves to their brainless leader, Trump. They will claim a fair trial allowed them to acquit Trump even though all the people who claimed to have evidence of his crimes were barred from testifying.
  • Trump's bigotry extends to even more Muslim nations.
  • Newly released documents from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show just how much damage Trump's constant lies caused during Hurricane Dorian. In addition to repeatedly saying the hurricane would hit Alabama (it didn't, and none of the projections said it would) the White House then demanded the NOAA agree with Trump's ignorant lies ultimately causing a massive panic.
  • I don't care much for sports, especially full-contact children's sports, but I do know that the Kansas City Chiefs are housed in Kansas City, Missouri. To think they they're from the state of Kansas is what you'd expect from a Russian troll. And charging $3,400,000 to US taxpayers so your rich friends can have a Super Bowl party is not the work of a good leader.
  • More coverage on Trump's useless border wall falling down because of a medium-strength breeze.
  • South Dakota Republicans are trying to pass one of the most anti-LGBT laws in history. It's so bigoted it even violates federal laws, so, even is adopted, it will be shot down shortly thereafter, so Republicans are really only doing it to waste taxpayer money to fight against the donated money of private organizations like the ACLU.
  • Republican Rodney Garcia says the US Constitution gives him the right to shoot to death people who have differing political views.

Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, a Catholic who was convicted of protecting child-raping priests and doesn't believe he did anything wrong, shockingly won his appeal, and is now a free man!

How is it public schools still haven't figured out that they can't punish children for refusing to recite a jingoist mantra modified to be a prayer? Hopefully, the lawsuit will make them finally understand.

  • Trump's legal team is full of racists and criminals, which explains why they're trying to argue that Trump can't commit a crime, no matter what he does, when seeking re-election.
  • The Republican who works to ban Muslims from being allowed to enter the USA says secular people are trying to suppress religion.
  • Trump's useless border wall isn't just falling down whenever there is a strong breeze or a bit of water, it's also doing nothing to stop the tunnels that have been dug under it.
  • Republican's complain that they're being censored on social media, but social media is full of political lies, child molesters, and criminals... so, extremely republican.
  • Trump confidently promised he would defeat terrorist organizations in the Middle East within a month of his presidency, but, since Trump fails at everything important, Taliban attacks have reached record levels of violence.
  • Trump continues to cut funding from the CDC even as Americans panic about the Chinese coronavirus. But really, you should be a lot more worried about the seasonal flu which has already killed 8,000 Americans, with 150,000 total infected! Get your flu shot!
  • I appreciate people who actively protest Trump, even when it means losing some of their fans.
  • This is the dawning of the Age of Impeachment.

I added a page for the Chrono Trigger song, To Far Away Times, and the video game publisher, Acclaim Entertainment.

  • Just like with dozens of Trump's hand-picked staff members before him, Republicans are throwing John Bolton under the bus now that he disagrees with Trump and could potentially be yet another witness of Trump's many crimes.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo is punishing other reporters because he was embarrassed after challenging Mary Louise Kelly to find Ukraine on a map, which she easily did.
  • A portion of Trump's useless border wall, which he's stealing money from the US military budget to build, has just collapsed! Trump advertised it as super strong, but it couldn't even keep out wind!
  • Senator Alice Forgy Kerr is supporting a ban on gay-conversion torture, which is shocking because she's Republican, and they're generally pro-torture. Why would a Republican argue that their god wants the LGBT to be allowed to live their lives? Because she has a gay son. This is typical of Republicans. They hate everything that is different, but, once it directly affects them, they finally see reason.
  • Under Trump's bumbling, the national debt has increased to unprecedented levels.

I finished reading Stephen Fry's, Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold. It was informative, but I now have even less interest in ancient Greek religion.

  • Bad news for Republicans is usually good news for America. In this case, John Bolton might actually have to admit Trump's direct blackmailing to the Senate, even though Republicans have officially threatened him! Trump's lawyers are trying a ridiculous argument, claiming anything Trump does to win re-election, regardless of whether it's illegal, can not be an impeachable offense.
  • Trump continues to make dangerous threats against everyone who disagrees with him even slightly.
  • Vox has put together a great video about who General Soleimani was and what he did to become so important to the Iranian people. He was by no stretch of the imagination a good man, but he was highly adored, so, when Republicans had him killed, it would have been nice if they didn't do it on a whim.
  • Playing dumb is what Trump's racist legal team does best.
  • Republican-controlled ICE isn't just raping children, they're also watching immigrant die. And they don't seem to discriminate as now even a white British man has died in their custody.
  • Republicans and Christians continue to hate gay people.

Year after year, study after study, they keep showing that the vast majority of women who have abortions do not feel regret, but relief.

I've started a page for Calvin and Hobbes.

  • In a draft of Republican John Bolton's upcoming book, he admits Trump purposely tied military aide to Ukraine to them claiming to investigate Joe Biden, a clear quid pro quo. This doesn't make Bolton a hero as he could have volunteered this information during the impeachment, but he decided to wait until he could make money off it with a book. Because of this admission, Democrats are demanding Bolton be told to testify in the trial of Trump's removal, but Republicans have made it very clear that they don't care about truth, not even a little bit. Instead, they prefer hearing from Trump's lawyers, like the man who defended child-rapist Jeffry Epstein, racist Alan Sershowitz, and they gleefully watch as Trump publicly admits to obstruction of justice.
  • Looks like Trump's murdering of a foreign general isn't the neat victory he hoped it would be. In addition to creating tens of thousands more Middle Easterners who hate the USA, the US embassy in Iraq has just been hit by rocket fire and the Taliban just shot down a US military jet flying over Afghanistan.
  • There is no way to deny this anymore. ICE is a bunch of child rapists.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo, like many before him, has called a journalist a "liar" twice without any evidence, despite the fact it appears the journalist is correct, and Pompeo is the liar.
  • The Republican-majority Supreme Court has ruled that it is okay to deny citizenship at anyone who might at some point in the future, require government assistance. How barbaric of them.
  • Republicans keep showing how being a criminal in the USA can make you a lot of money, especially if they're into nepotism, which Republicans always are.
  • Virginia may have finally adopted the Equal Rights Amendment, but Republicans are still trying to keep it from becoming federal law.

Sometimes altar boys who were raped as children grow up to become priests themselves, and then the Catholics try to prevent them from suing their own church.

I don't care if someone is good at sports ball, if they have been credibly accused of rape and are not punished, they should not be deified.

Police officer Michael Valva punished his 8-year-old son by locking him in a freezing cold garage for an entire night without blankets.

I've broken out the video games in my Wiki by year and updated my list of favorite video games to include the top 5 games of each year.

  • After lying in their oath of impartiality, Republicans proceeded to eliminate any and all rules that would be even remotely fair and even barred the press from having access to the Senate hearings. However, a few Republicans who are up for re-election care a little bit more about their own skin than their party which forced them to change tact slightly. As the rules stand now, the Senate will only discuss impeachment for a mere 3 days (they tried for only 2!), and while most Republicans voted to disallow all existing evidence, the House evidence will be automatically added to the trial, unless more Republicans later object. Witnesses are still not allowed for obvious reasons, and Trump's lawyers, are still so angry they couldn't get his impeachment dismissed, they screwed up their first day, but Republicans stilled backed them up.
  • Here is an interview with Rick Wilson, who is often described as an "honest" Republican in a time when Republicans are selling their souls to their new god, Trump. But look at what he's saying. He says policy doesn't matter, plans don't matter, helping the American people doesn't matter, all that matters is winning. Sure, he's honest, but he's also what's wrong with America.
  • A federal judge ruled that a man's education visa was valid, and he had every right to enter the USA to go to university. The Republican-controlled ICE broke the law and deported him anyway.
  • If you are poor or a racial minority, Republicans will take away your right to vote.
  • Randy Rainbow's latest song, "That Don!"
  • Donald Trump is a spoiled brat.

Churches in America are dying. They're failing to attract young people, and their aging congregations are dying off. But one church in Minnesota has got it all figured out, they're kicking out all of their older members in the hope it will attract a younger audience.

I've updated the Worlds of Power page with ISBNs, covers, and more detailed publication information.

  • To celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Republican Kellyanne Conway stated that King would have opposed Trump's impeachment and saw eye-to-eye on Trump's skewed views of equality.
  • Republicans want witness reciprocity at the Senate impeachment trial, that is, for each witness called, they want to call their own witness even if they have absolutely nothing to do with the trial. Republicans claim the goal "fairness," but the real goal is to waste time and muddy the waters. This is why real trials don't allow for witness reciprocity. Imagine a murder trial where fifty people witnessed a gunman commit murder, the defense doesn't get to call fifty of their own witnesses who didn't witness the murder to criticize the real witnesses and say nice things about the gunman.
  • Three white home-grown American terrorists we arrested for threatening to open fire at the gun-nut rally in Virginia in hopes that it would start a fire fight in the state's Capital and cause the downfall of civilization so they could take over.
  • A look back over the years at how Republicans have obstructed and ruined decent health care.

Miami police officer Javier Ortiz was born to white and Hispanic parents, but, in an effort to mock his precinct's desire to hire and promote more black officers, he began referring to himself as a black Jewish man. Although Ortiz claims he's serious, he has a history of making racist statements online, absolutely loves Trump, and refers to black people as "negros."

  • Donald Trump has the best friends, like O.J. Simpson, Jeffrey Epstein, and Republican Chris Collins, the first Congressman to endorse Donald Trump for President, who has just been sentenced to two years in prison for the crimes of lying to the FBI and securities fraud.
  • Naturally, the Senate does not want Lev Parnas or anyone else to testify against Trump with their damning facts.
  • Just a reminder, Trump almost started World War III just because.
  • Republican Nelly Jordan, has been fired for saying the Jews who think Trump should be impeached aren't real Jews.
  • Trump is a draft-dodger who got his daddy to keep him out of war, which explains why he has such little respect for US generals, calling them "dopes and babies."
  • The National Archive has come under fire for censoring photographs that are critical of Trump.

Christian non-profit organizations don't like having the pesky IRS look through their accounting books or preventing them from endorsing political candidates, so they're becoming churches. Churches in America get special treatment and don't have to keep books and can endorse political candidates without impunity.

  • The Senate impeachment trial, which will decide whether Trump must be removed from office, has officially begun, and, strange ritual aside, the Republican-majority Senate is going to do everything in their power to prevent all this new evidence from being brought up about Trump administration telling his goons actively stalk a US ambassador.
  • Federal judge, Trevor N. McFadden, refused to rule on the lawsuit to make Trump's tax returns public, despite all the lies and corruption surrounding them, which makes it much more likely Trump's taxes will remain hidden until after the election. Why would a judge offer such blatant favoritism to Republicans? Oh yeah, because he was appointed by Trump and even personally contributed to Trump's election campaign.
  • Three more home-grown white American terrorists were arrested, but Republicans continue to target brown immigrants.
  • Democrats may be uncool and boring, but they're also more ethical than Republicans.
  • Trump inadvertently autographed his own articles of impeachment at one of his rallies.

I added a page for the Queen song, Staying Power.

  • Lev Parnas, one of the men arrested for helping Trump blackmail Ukraine, is singing like a canary. He has admitted, not only that Trump was fully aware of the crimes being committed for him, but also implicated Republicans Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton William Barr, and Devin Nunes who suddenly remembered speaking to him. Parnas said they were all involved with the crime, and he has the documents to prove it. No wonder Senate Republicans are refusing to allow witnesses to testify, even the ones whose reelection hangs in the balance. To show how seriously Trump is taking all of this, he continued to shout at home appliances.
  • It's been 48 years years, but Virginia finally passed the Equal Rights Amendment, making discrimination against women illegal. If you're surprised that isn't already in place, wait until you learn about the other predominantly Republican states.
  • Missouri Republicans are trying to criminalize certain books in libraries. Instead of allowing children to read the books they want, Republicans want to decide which books they can be allowed to read, and, if librarians don't censor the books properly, they'll be punished. Of course, they still want the bible available to children in every library despite all the murder, rape, and incest.
  • Republican Peter Lucido told a female reporter than a bunch of teenage boys could "have a lot of fun with" her, causing the teenage boys to erupt in laughter. After the reporter confronted Lucido for making an unprofessional sexual remark at her expense, he tried apologizing, but, when the story became national news, he went on the offensive claiming the reporter was lying and he never made the remark.
  • The news is trying to make a big deal out of a minor dispute between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, because there isn't any of the unceasing name calling and childish insults of the Republican party.

  • Trump's disgraced National Security Advisor who plead guilty to lying to the FBI in order to conceal Trump's contact with Russians, now wants to change his plea to not guilty because he's realized he might be punished for this crimes.
  • More evidence has been released about Trump, Giuliana, and his arrested Ukrainian henchman Lev Parnas and how they blackmailed a foreign leader for dirt on Trump's political rival.

I've added a page for the video game genre, first-person shooter. Also, to honor today's end of end-of-life of Windows 7, I've created a helpful graphic on how to upgrade.

  • Trump demanded the US Senate simply dismiss the trial to removal him from office without even hearing the evidence, which is horrifying. Republicans in the Senate refused to do so, not because they care about a fair trial, they've already stated explicitly they will do everything in their power to ensure the trial will be unfair. No, they refused to dismiss the trial only because they know they won't have enough votes to dismiss it.
  • The Affordable Care Act put into place by the Obama administration eliminated pre-existing conditions as a reason medical insurance companies could refused new clients. Trump has actively been trying to dismantle the ACA without any replacement. Thankfully, he was too inept to pull it off, but, if he had succeeded, we would go back to pre-existing conditions being grounds for refusal. Despite personally fighting against them, Trump is taking credit for protecting pre-existing conditions.
  • Trump steals another $7,200,000,000 from military families so he can build his useless border wall.
  • The Ukrainian gas company, the one Trump targeted as his way to win the 2020 election, but ended up getting himself impeached, has been hacked by Russian spies. Most likely, they were doing what they did in 2016, working to find Trump dirt on his political rivals.

  • The US has been at war with several countries since 2001, and though there hasn't been further escalation since Republicans blamed Trump's military strike on Obama, don't kid yourself, we're still poised for more war.
  • Trump lied when he said the US is not dependent on Middle Eastern oil. We still import almost a million barrels of oil from Saudi Arabia every day! And the fact that Middle Eastern oil still affects us was clear when gasoline prices soared after Trump had an Iranian assassinated.
  • Republicans are -still- trying to pin a crime on Hillary Clinton. They've wasted millions in tax dollars, and still after over a decade of trying, haven't found anything.
  • Trump is proud he increased our already ridiculously high military budget. But, does it count as an increase when you steal the money for a useless border wall?

I've added a page for one of my favorite comedy troops, Monty Python.

  • Donald Trump refused to honor the US nuclear treaty with Iran, he assassinated one of their heroes, he threatened war crimes against the country, and his fellow Republicans backed him every step of the way. They are the reason Iran is going back to enriching uranium. So, naturally, Trump is blaming Obama, and asking Iran to make a new nuclear deal with him... the guy that broke the last treaty, killed one of your heroes, and threatened to obliterate your cultural sites, and is actively increasing the US nuclear arsenal.
  • Why are Christians, who are supposed to be peace-loving, so intent on going to war with the Middle East? Because they believe the destruction of Islam and the rise of Israel will bring about the end of the world, which they see as a good thing.
  • Republican pundits always point out that the rich pay a whole lot more in taxes, but, when you look at all forms of taxation, is that actually true?
  • With the Republicans in charge, even with a refugee is granted legal refugee status, they're deported anyway.
  • Steven Mnuchin, former banker who help cause the economic collapse of 2008 and was made Treasury Secretary by Trump, refuses to talk about the serious debt caused by Trump's record number of presidential vacations. We know the Secret Service exhausted their budget way back in 2017, and have only been running a growing deficit since then, but Mnuchin won't say just how much money Trump has wasted until after the election.
  • From the dijon mustard to the tan suit, here are the worst scandals of the Obama administration according to the Fox outrage machine.
  • Facebook makes their intentions very clear, they will continue show provide a platform for information that they know to be false because keeping people honest isn't nearly as good as money.

The Mormon Church, like most churches around the world, is bleeding both members and money because of several child rape scandals. So, the church instituted a new policy where they would actually inform law enforcement when one of their members admitted to raping children.

  • Every terrible thing Trump predicted Obama would do, he ended up doing himself. Trump claimed Obama would start a war with Iran just before his re-election to win votes, and what has Trump just done? Started a war with Iran just before his re-election. And, not like a trade war Trump is so good at failing, but an actual war where the US military murders Iranians and they shoot missiles at our airbases. And why did Trump start a war with Iran and once again threaten to commit war crimes? Because the Pentagon planted the idea in his mind as something too crazy to do in hopes that they could convince him to be less stupid!

Samuel James Gulick is a good Christian man with a long history of fantasizing about murdering people. He had been posting about murder on his social media sites, but law enforcement did nothing. Unimpeded, he made good on his threats and finally firebombed a medical building to appease his god.

My work gave me a new computer with the horrible Windows 10 on it. In an effort to try and make it semi-functional, I have greatly updated my Windows 10 tricks page.

  • The nation's most poorly-run White House loses yet another staffer as their Pentagon chief of staff, Eric Chewning, is resigning now that Trump has brought the nation to the brink of war with Iran and caused them to break their nuclear enrichment treaty.
  • Republican Paul Gosar shared a falsified photo of Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with the caption, "The world is a better place without these guys in power." In reality, Obama never met with Rouhani, and the photo was of Obama meeting with the Prime Minister of India. When Gosar was questioned about it, he pretended like he knew it was a fake photo all along, and the reporters who pointed out his mistake were stupid to call him out. This makes him seem even worse, but his worst remark still is when Gosar blamed the white supremacist rally of Charlottesville, Virginia, where a woman was murdered by a white supremacist, on a Jewish Holocaust survivor.
  • Delaware Republicans are doing damage control as their bigotry shines through. Republican Chris Rowe tried to post a video of two people getting murdered on Facebook, and when the site took it down, he called the site's moderators "faggots." Republican Nelly Jordan said that some Jews worship the "father of all lies."
  • Nine people. All men, all white, all creepy smiles, all Republicans. They are calling for the criminalization of abortion.

One reason Iran hates the USA is because not too long ago, our military shot down a civilian airplane killing all 290 people on board.

United Methodists, the second largest Protestant denomination in the USA, appears to be splitting in half over the question of whether their god hates homosexuals. Fractured churches are weaker churches. This is a good thing.

Religious apologist Dennis Prager is becoming a bit anti-Semetic mocking Anne Frank for believing that people are good at heart. He mocked Frank after in response to an earlier comment where he said the Jews haven't learned much from the Holocaust!

Two children in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, aged 12 and 13, were throwing snowballs at cars until they hit a white Toyota. The driver stopped, pulled out a gun, shot both the children, and drove off. This is why we need better gun control.

MAGFest 2020 was exhausting, but a whole lot of fun. I gave my first lecture, but sadly, as it was scheduled so late, I only had about a dozen viewers. However, they seemed very interested and the sound guy in the back came up to me and congratulated me on how interesting and professional my talk was. I also met Harumi Fujita and had her sign my Bionic Commando cart, as well as David Wise and Kevin Bayliss, who signed my Battletoads cart. I bought several more soundtracks, got two signed by Amanda Lepre, and lost a lot of sleep and money. Overall, it was great. I'm quite a bit out of touch with politics and documentaries, but I should be back on track by tomorrow.

  • Trump ordered the assassination of Iranians Major General Qasim Soleimani and militia leader Abu Mahdi Mohandi. This is creating serious tension in the Middle East, almost all of it against the USA, and even US allies are turning their backs on us. Iraq itself just voted to kick all US troops out of their country. An Iranian reporter claimed there was an $80,000,000 bounty offered on Trump's head, and Trump responded saying he would make military attacks, not just on the Iranian military, but on their civilian cultural centers, which is a war crime.
  • Trump is again wrong. The biggest threats to birds are cats, buildings, vehicles, power lines, and pollution, with wind turbines causing a very small fraction.
  • Trump promotes violence against minorities, and violence against minorities in the USA has risen dramatically since Trump took office. I wonder if there is any connection?
  • As Republicans continue to try to destroy Roe v. Wade, it's important to remember that reproductive rights are human rights.
  • It's great that some Christian writers support Trump's impeachment, but they are a very small minority.

Police tased a 70-year-old grandmother three times and arrested her on two felony counts because Barbara Pinkney wouldn't let them into her house until they got a warrant. Unfortunately, for her, Florida doesn't follow the fourth amendment and they allows their cops to forcibly enter any private property as long as they say they a criminal might be there. Naturally, the person they were looking for was not there. At least the police in Virginia are seeing some push back. After killing Christian Sierra, a mentally unstable teenager, by shooting him three times in the chest, Virginia police have been ordered to pay over $3,500,000.

I've added a page for scrolling shooters.

  • In addition to pardoning a convicted murderer whose family contributed to his campaign, Republican Matt Bevin pardoned Micah Schoettle, a convicted child rapist who raped multiple girls under the age of 10. But Bevin did more than set a child rapist free, he reminded women all around the world that there is no point in coming forward with rape allegations, because your rapist will not be punished.
  • Republicans forced a new law into place that would require private insurers to breakout their abortion coverage into a separate tracking and billing system when they process patients through the Affordable Care Act. Their goal is to complicate the process so much that even private insurers eliminate abortion coverage. This change in billing is expected to cost US taxpayers $1,250,000,000 just to put into place.
  • Mike Pence is a true Christian, meaning he believes that it is his duty to force his religious beliefs on everyone, and to use the power of the government to do so, even if that means making a deal with the devil himself to get it done. So here is a wonderful compilation of Pence smiling and nodding along to everything Donald Trump says, not matter how ridiculous or anti-Christian.

I've added a page for the mobile game, Earn to Die 2, which I don't recommend.

  • Trump is trying to brush off the fact that he is the first president in US history to be impeached during his first term in office.
  • Rudy Giuliani, a Catholic, shouts that he is more Jewish than a Jewish man who survived the Holocaust.
  • In case you considered that a single Christianity Today opinion article calling for the removal of Trump for office represented American Christians, a group of 177 self-proclaimed Christian "leaders" doubled-down reminding everyone that they fully back Trump! They are fine with his lying, stealing, adultery, abuse of power, racism, and everything else. They view Trump as their Messiah.
  • The "abortion reversal" pill is so dangerous it's safety tests had to be halted because the women involved almost bled to death. Naturally, Republicans are pushing to legalize it.
  • SNL tackles the Democratic debates, Trump's impeachment, and racist Fox contributor, Jeanine Pirro.

Finally got around to playing Axiom Verge. I'm a couple hours into it, and, so far, it's pretty great!

  • Trump has finally been impeached, but we still have a long way to go.
  • Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, we have learned that Michael Duffey is the White House budget official who contacted the Pentagon to have them withhold military aide to Ukraine less than two hours before Trump's criminal phone call. Duffey explicitly said that Trump was the reason for the hold, and urged the Pentagon to keep the matter hushed up. Regardless, Republicans are continuing to fight to prevent any witnesses from being called when the Senate decides if Trump will be removed from office.
  • The hit men who brutally murdered and dismembered Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist who wrote articles critical of the government of Saudi Arabia, are going to be executed. The evidence suggests the journalist's murder was conducted by the nation's dictator, Mohammed bin Salman, so the execution of the hit men is probably to ensure they can never tell anyone the truth. The Saudi government is making it out like these men acted alone without any political direction.
  • Seriously, Trump has a mental disorder.
  • Trump's boss, Russian dictator Vladamir Putin, has got his back.
  • Donald Trump is the epitome of Evangelical Christians. He is everything they hold dear, and everything they aspire to be. Just look at how one Evangelical preacher says he'll continue to side with Donald Trump, even if it is discovered Trump tortures animals for his own amusement, and even if Trump disrespects dead Christian heroes.
  • Republicans have gutted the EPA and the people in charge are pro-fossil fuels, so, naturally, pollution isn't being regulated and safety isn't being checked. This has led to a fracking explosion which is causing one of the worst methane leaks in history.
  • A new Christmas carol. Also, a little late, but merry impeachmentmas!
  • The Democrats still have too many candidates, but it's nice to see they're whittling them down.

West Point finished their investigation of their cadets showing a "white power" hand gesture at a football game where Trump was in attendance. They explained that the cadets, all of whom were white, weren't flashing a "white power" hand sign, but merely playing the circle game. I feel much better.

Oprah has good intentions, but her anti-science outlook of life causes her to get hoodwinked very easily. She used her platform to fully endorse the Brazilian guru Joao Teixeira de Faria, who has been accused of sexual assault and rape by over 200 women!

I've added a page for The Sounds album, Something to Die For.

  • Trump has been impeached. He deserves to be impeached because he's so awful, but I'm not celebrating because this is ultimately a net negative for society. Getting to this point shows we still have a long way to go.
  • Why does Trump believe Ukraine is corrupt? Because the Russian dictator who invaded Ukraine, Vladamir Putin, told him to think that!
  • When asked why Republican Matt Bevin would pardon Micah Schoettle and Paul Donel Hurt, two convicted child rapists, and Patrick Baker, a convicted murderer, his response was unsettling.
  • Republican Matt Shea has been suspended from the Washington Congress after refusing to resign after an internal investigation discovered that he encouraged terrorists groups to attack the USA!
  • Republican Betsy DeVos keeps pushing for for-profit charter schools, but they are just a money pit.
  • A judge has ruled that Trump can't take money from the US military to build his useless border wall. He'll have to steal the money from someone else.
  • It's nice to see a Christian magazine finally state that Trump doesn't represent them, but it took them three years of horrible crimes to finally do it, so I'm not that impressed.
  • Normalizing Trump's criminal acts makes it harder for non-criminals to get into office.

Harter was taken to the hospital for his injuries and given a $13,000 medical bill, but he still doesn't know why the cops had broken into his house to begin with, and even local journalists can't figure out why!

As 2019 draws to a close, here are 100 new facts we've learned.

Happy Impeachmas

I've added a page for one of my favorite Alanis Morissette songs, Hands Clean.

  • Trump has been successfully impeached on both articles by the House of Representatives. As expected, every Republican refused to honor their oath of office to the Constitution, and once again chose party over country, hoping that their evil will be overlooked just one more time by ignorant voters. I guess that horrifying letter Trump sent to Nancy Pelosi, for some reason, didn't change her mind.
  • During the impeachment proceedings, Republican Barry Loudermilk argued that Jesus had a more fair trial than Trump, really cementing the idea that Republicans care more about Trump than Jesus. His main complaint is that the whistleblower should be made public as a means of due process. Of course, he knows that an impeachment is not a criminal matter, so due process doesn't apply, and, it wouldn't matter anyway because the whistleblower's complaints have been corroborated by other witnesses.
  • John Dingell was a veteran and worked in politics for twenty years where he fought to limit pollution, protect human rights, and make health care affordable. He died earlier this year, so Trump remarked that he is currently burning in hell.
  • Another Republican, who spent the last three years defending all of Trump's crimes, has seen the writing on the wall, and is retiring early.
  • Republican talk show host Chuck Bonniwell wished for a school shooting to break up the monotony of Trump's impeachment. He said he was only joking, but he's lost his show because of it.

The University of North Carolina paid a white nationalist group $2,500,000 to haul away and protect a Confederate monument, and now they're being sued.

The only thing worse than a Christian bigot is a Christian bigot with authority. Dianne Hensley, a Justice of the Peace, refuses to do her job because she hates certain types of people. She was given a public warning with no consequences, so now she's suing her district for pointing out her bigotry.

Who would have guessed that white nationalists would also be very ignorant about the science of sex.

I finally beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES. What a slog!

  • I've seen a lot of people saying that Trump's impeachment is pointless because we'll just have another horrible person filling his position. That doesn't matter. Terrible people need to be held accountable even if it won't stop other terrible people from existing. For example, Rick Gates, Trump's former campaign manager, has been found guilty of several crimes including lying to the FBI and helping Paul Manafort hide the $30,000,000 he got from shady deals in Ukraine. Putting him in prison isn't going to fix the world, but it will show the rest of Trump's ghouls that they should think twice before lying to protect Trump. Gates was sentenced to a mere 45 days in prison today, which is certainly less than he deserves, but the lenient sentence was because Gates sung like a canary to the FBI and helped them put several of Trump's men in prison for a lot longer, despite Trump's cronies offering him large sums of money to refuse to answer and FBI questions.
  • The Trumps are just a bunch of assholes.

Dr. Holly Krieger talks about trying to find numbers that eventually repeat back to themselves after being squared.

It took them awhile, but the Hallmark Channel finally figured out that they no longer need to make religious bigots happy. Same sex marriage is now accepted in nearly every developed nation, and no amount of fake Christian outrage is going to change that. Besides, it seems every day there is a new Christian pastor caught soliciting male prostitutes, like Barry Poyner.

For decades now, the Latter Day Saints Church has been collecting money to the tune of $100,000,000,000, claiming that it was going to be spent on charities, but it has been fraudulently keeping the money for itself. This is a case of charity fraud even bigger than that of Trump!

Two cops, John Rabago and Reginald Ramones, abused a man by threatening to arrest him if he didn't lick a dirty urinal, and this isn't the first time he's humiliated vulnerable men and then they lied to covered up the abuse.

Over the weekend, I beat the game Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. I also started a page for the Kid Icarus universe.

  • Republican Lindsay Graham, lackey to Trump, makes it very clear that he won't even pretend to be fair when it comes to the Senate impeachment inquiry. There was a time when Republicans at least made an effort to fake carrying out their oath of office to the US Constitution, but they don't even do that any more.
  • Speaker of the House, Adam Schiff, explains the purpose of Trump's impeachment by spelling out his crimes, urging Congress to vote for the US Constitution regardless of their party, and explains why Trump is such a criminal. Meanwhile, Trump is surprised he made it through so many crimes before finally being impeached.
  • The Department of Education was recommending a full refund for those students who were cheated into predatory loans, but then Republicans put Betsy DeVos in charge, and, because she makes her money from predatory loans, reversed their decision.
  • Anti-science Republican John Becker admits he didn't even so much as Google ectopic pregnancies before trying to pass a law forcing doctors to try and re-implant them, which isn't possible.
  • When Trump is calling journalists the "enemy of the people," and inciting violence against them, it's important not to ignore how people are emboldened to minor assaults like this.
  • Trump continues to bully a teenage girl, and continues to lose.
  • Trump doesn't just have outstanding debts across the USA, and through charity frauds, he also is in debt to countries all over the world.
  • Trump continues to grow as the most dishonest president in American history. I guess he wants to make sure that no other president will ever be able to top him.
  • The president of the USA shouldn't be concerned about toilets.
  • For years Republican Theresa Kenerly, mayor of Hoschton, Georgia, refused to hire any black people because, as she said multiple times, "the city isn't ready for this." Well, turns out the city wasn't ready to continue it's racist history, because Kenerly is resigning.

  • The House of Representatives has approved the articles of impeachment against Trump. As expected, every Republican violated their oath of office and voted against impeachment, but the Democratic majority was enough to at least have the House do what's right. Republican Mitch McConnell has already said, when the vote reaches the Senate, he will let Trump's lawyers tell him what to do. This isn't shocking since McConnell hasn't done his job for the majority of the time he's been in office, so letting someone else work for him is his MO.
  • The investigation of how the FBI handled the Russian investigation against Trump showed they did a wonderful job. Naturally, Trump is lying about everything.
  • Republican Matt Bevin lost to a Democrat, which was very impressive for Kentucky, but he didn't lose gracefully. Just prior to leaving office, Bevin, proving Republicans care nothing for justice, pardoned 428 convicted criminals including several murderers and a child-rapist!
  • I wish I could be all smug and mock the UK for stupidly voting evil rich incompetent bastards into office and causing their country to self implode, but my country is just as stupid.
  • To honor Jews for Hanukkah, Trump invited, not a rabbi, but a Christian preacher who says all Jews are going to hell. You can't expect much from an anti-Semite like Trump who keeps telling a story about his Jewish "friend," but gives him a new name every time.
  • When a nation doesn't educate their citizens to the point where they can work toward increasing the overall quality of the nation, it must rely on selling them as commodities. Case in point, one of the USA's largest exports is blood.
  • Republican Jim Cleveland, the man who said good Christians thinks interracial marriage is evil, is resigning.
  • The Pentagon has lied to the American people for over a decade about their failed war in Iraq.
  • The Republican war on the poor continues.

  • A White House memo shows that Trump did indeed personally withhold military aide from Ukraine even though it was already approved by Congress, an overstepping of his authority. At this point, Republicans aren't even trying to defend Trump's impeachment because there is nothing to defend. Trump and his fellow Republicans keep admitting to all of his crimes. For those few who still want to pretend like they're in the right, they're arguing that even the Conservatives who disagree with Trump are all part of a deep state conspiracy. It's nice that Democrats are taking this seriously, but, Senate Republicans will continue to put party before country and lie to protect Trump.
  • In an effort to stem the dangerous influenza epidemic occurring throughout the Republican migrant concentration camps, doctors appeared in droves to give them free flu vaccinations. The doctors were promptly arrested.
  • Don Jr. shot an endangered argali without a permit. Then, using the power of nepotism, demanded from the government of Mongolia a permit to kill the endangered animal, and got it.
  • Under Republican direction, ICE and the Border Patrol are using devices to actively monitor and record to your cell phone calls, text messages, and emails.
  • Republicans continue to push for charter schools getting taxpayer money, even though they continue to fail to teach children, and sometimes, never even open!

Deputy Daniel Wilkey, a cop who, during a traffic stop, forced a women to undress so he could baptize her, has a growing rap sheet including reckless endangerment, extortion, assault, and rape.

My babies turn 2 today! It's shocking how much they've grown.

I started a page on the issues around adding backdoors to encryption. It's still pretty raw, but I'll fine-tune it over the next couple days.

  • The Republican tactic of calling all of our enemies our friends and all of our friends enemies may protect Trump, but it's doing lasting damage to the nation.
  • For years, student loan organizations have been practicing predatory lending, just like the banks that caused the economic collapse of 2008. They lied to students and tricked them into wracking up huge amounts of debt at extremely hight interest rates. Congress ruled that the lenders were in the wrong, and should be punished by not being able to collect on their loans and forgiving the debt of those students who were victims. However, Republican Betsy DeVos continues to refuse to forgive the criminal loans. Even after being told she had to by a judge, but she keeps refusing because the Republican White House will do nothing to punish her. She just lost another court case, but still refuses to do her job. Why is she so anti-student and pro-criminal? Because she makes her money with student loans at for-profit schools. Trump appointed her knowing full-well that she would be terrible for students and education.
  • Wired magazine says it pretty clear and in a straightforward way I wish other media outlets would: Fox is now a threat to US national security. Meanwhile, Fox is being sued, yet again, by one of their employees because she was sexually harassed and Fox tried to cover it up.
  • Trump tried to steal $3,600,000,000 from the US military in order to build his useless border wall, but a Federal Judge stopped him.
  • Republicans are still demanding backdoors to all forms of encryption, and their bad arguments have even persuaded some Democrats into joining the idiotic fight. But, to be clear, you cannot add a backdoor into encryption for law enforcement that a criminals can't also take advantage. Yes, an encryption backdoor would make it easier for the FBI to stop child trafficking, but it would also make it easier for every criminal in the world to have access to your bank account. You're already at risk for having your own face stolen.
  • I would like to agree with the headline that Trump paid out $2,000,000 for defrauding charities in New York, but, since Trump has been siphoning tax dollars his entire administration, the reality is, American taxpayers have paid his fine.
  • Apparently, Trump takes yuge dumps.
  • These are not the actions of a sane mind.

When Christian Pastor Tommy Callaway of Pittman Park United Methodist Church discovered he was on television, he walked up to a female reporter and slapped her on the ass. He didn't even apologize, he had his lawyer issue a statement that what he did wasn't criminal.

Robert L. Dear, Jr., the Christian terrorist who murdered two people at a doctor's office and a police officer, explained his values as, "I am not crazy. I am just a religious zealot."

  • Trump is officially being impeached on two separate violations, abuse of power, and obstruction of Congress.
  • Citizens are allowed to vote in private to guarantee the right to vote their conscious without having to fear dangerous people who might try to force them to vote a particular way. So, if someone demands you publicly divulge who you voted for in secret, you shouldn't trust them to have you or your country's best interest at heart. Enter the Republican party.

I've added a page for the NES port of Double Dragon and the franchise itself.

  • Criticism of the government is necessary free speech in any democracy, but that is not what the USA has become. Stanley Sloan was expected to speak about foreign policy at a NATO event, but, because he has been critical of Trump, U.S. Ambassador, Republican Carla Sands, demanded he be banned from the event! Rather than face backlash from White House Republicans, the event was canceled entirely.
  • The Republicans on the US Supreme Court ruled that Kentucky's unscientific and non-medicinal law that forces women to undergo unnecessary procedures before getting an abortion is legal.
  • Trump is so proud of protecting men who committed war crimes, that he parades them on stage just to brag.
  • Republicans continue to prove they care more about their party than they care about the country. The Ukraine conspiracy have been thoroughly debunked by intelligence organizations around the world, but that doesn't stop the from continuing to lie through their teeth in hopes that they will convince their uneducated voters it's true.
  • Trump is one of those people who is so racist, they don't even know when they're being racist. Trump's speech to Israeli Americans was just a long list of stereotypes and anti-Semitic slurs.
  • Because Trump doesn't have anything better to do, what with being impeached and all, he's complaining that toilets don't flush with enough force, and thinks it's his job to convince people to fix them. Maybe it's just because he's so full of shit?
  • Republican child-molestor Roy Moore is, once again, running for Senate in Alabama. And now he's comparing himself to Republican Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanagh, both of whom have been credibly accused of sexual assault. He's not exactly painting himself in a good light!
  • Trump is a punchline for the rest of the world, which makes him cry like a baby.
  • Under Republican control, the EPA is trying to eliminate evidence from those research projects that publish inconvenient findings.
  • Nancy Pelosi explains that, as a Christian, she doesn't hate anyone, not even Trump.
  • Mark Zuckerberg is all about privacy for himself, just not for you.

Obviously, this didn't happen, but, if it did, it would make national news and American Airlines would be boycotted for years. However, because this exact same thing happened, but the person wasn't wearing a Christian shirt, nobody cares.

I've created a page for Sega's first home video game console, the SG-1000.

  • For the past three years, Trump has been using an unsecured cell phone to make calls about top secret information. He has been warned many times by his security advisors to stop using it because it could be easily hacked, and everything he says could be recorded by our national enemies, but Trump continues to put the nation at risk because he doesn't want to use a new phone. Now that the phone logs of the White House are being made public because of his impending impeachment, we're learning just how vulnerable Trump's phone has made us. There are many reasons Trump needs to be impeached, putting Americans at risk because he's too stupid to learn how to use a phone is just one more.
  • Trump can scream and insult and posture, but, every else will continue to laugh at him.
  • Republican Governor Bill Lee calls on all Tennesseans to stop eating food and start praying and maybe then his god will perform a miracle for them! That sounds like something a three-year-old child would say.

I've created a page for the Street Fighter universe.

  • Before the last presidential election, every single one of America's intelligence agencies was reporting the Russia was interfering in the election. Then, Trump personally and publicly begged them to attack the Democrats (we later found out that he knew they already did). Trump later tried to blackmail another foreign nation, Ukraine, to help him get reelected, and the Republicans supported him every step of the way. Obviously, this has made the Republicans look like traitors, so they've had to come up with a plan, and what a plan it is! They're claiming that every US intelligence agency was in cahoots to stop Trump, and that it wasn't Russia who was trying to steal our election at all, but Ukraine all along! The only problem is, the people who they've hand-picked to fabricate evidence for them, Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Durham are both saying he can't find anything to fit the outlandish Republican conspiracy theory.
  • Trump demands to be the only person who can call NATO trash!
  • Republicans have confirmed another Federal Judge to a lifetime position even after her colleagues and superiors at the American Bar Association explained in detail why she is woefully unqualified (she has never tried a case in her entire life!). So why did Republicans vote for Sarah Pitlyk? Because she said she will actively work to criminalize abortion. Of course, Republicans might get more than they bargained for with Pitlyk because her god also thinks in vitro fertilization and surrogate parents should be banned!

  • Trump doesn't just protect war criminals from justice, he also attacks the people who try to bring war criminals to justice by taking away their medals!
  • Trump continues to tie up US courts to protect his own corrupt empire, but the courts keep ruling against him. His latest failure is in trying to hide his financial records from Congress.
  • Republican and authoritarian William Barr threatens communities saying, if there are people in the community who aren't showing blind respect for cops, the entire community will have their police force taken away!
  • Republican Devin Nunes spends every waking moment of his life depending a toxic criminal and spreading lies. And, like many professional liars, he hates journalists, and is trying to sue them for exposing his lies.
  • In 2007, American mercenaries got spooked and went on a shooting spree murdering 17 civilians and injuring 20 more, including women and children, in an event now known as the Nisour Square massacre. The mercenaries were held accountable for their crimes but Republicans, working with Fox, are trying desperately to protect the murderers and make everyone forget their crimes and their victims.
  • The greedy criminal Trump calls his "spiritual advisor," Christian preacher Paula White, has no problem with all of his sins and says she will continue to promote him no matter what he does.
  • Republican George Buck in Florida sent out a mass email suggesting Democrat Ilhan Omar should be murdered.

  • Trump shows us that cronyism is still alive and well in his corrupt White House.
  • William Barr continues to be Trump's biggest fan, arguing that judges are wrong to let Congress have access to the FBI documents which include all the evidence of Trump's crimes.
  • This is why you don't become buddies with dictators: Russia is now officially calling their own journalists "foreign agents." And you can bet your ass Trump would love to do this in America.
  • Republican Arthur Jones is an open Holocaust denier and white supremacist, but he still gets a huge amount of Republican votes because of the official Republican motto, "Republicans, we're actual Nazis."
  • In the past three months, two more vocal fans of Trump have both pleaded guilty to fraud. Republican Chris Collins has plead guilty to insider trading, and Republican Duncan Hunter has pleading guilty to campaign finance fraud.
  • Replace "math" with evolution or the big bang, and you have what every Republican wants for schools.

  • Trump spent an hour on Fox rambling about conspiracy theories that were so blatantly false that even Fox had a hard time swallowing them.

I finished reading Masters of Doom.

  • While blaming the Biden's for nepotism, Trump steps up his level of incompetent nepotism to 11.
  • Why was Eddie Gallagher pardoned of his war crimes and allowed to retire? Defense Secretary Mark Esper makes it very clear, Trump himself protected the war criminal.
  • Trump has made good on his promise to treat journalists as his enemy.
  • Rick Perry, like many other Republicans, spells out his religious beliefs. Basically, Trump is their messiah.
  • Putting sex offender Brett Kavanaugh on the US Supreme Court has really helped Trump. Trump's tax records are key evidence in an investigation to see if Trump used campaign money to pay off all the women he cheated on his wife with, but one sexual assaulter protects another, and the Republicans on the Supreme Court are protecting Trump's taxes indefinitely.
  • How do Republicans keep coming up with fresh lies to defend Trump? There's a service for that.
  • It's nice to see that not all Republicans are allowed to obstruct the impeachment inquiry. A federal judge ruled that Trump's former lawyer Don McGahn must testify or face legal charges. Of course, he is still allowed to refuse to answer every single question directed to him, but, at the very least, he has to appear. It won't make the impeachment any more useful, especially since the Republican in charge of it may be directly involved with the quid pro quo, but it's a start.
  • Trump thinks children ask their mom if they can vape, and also refers to his own son as his wife's child in yet another bizarre interview.
  • Trump, not fully understanding what an anniversary is, asked why we didn't celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage sooner, and then took credit for the anniversary.

Over the weekend I beat the Famicom game Yume Penguin Monogatari, making it my 256th finished game. I also saw the musical We Will Rock You, which wasn't that great.

  • Trump pardoned US soldiers guilty of war crimes, thanks in part to Secretary of the Navy, Richard V. Spencer who ignored rank and spoke directly to the White House about pardoning a war criminal. Thankfully, Spencer's boss, Secretary of Defense Mark T. Esper, just fired Spencer, not just for helping to protect war criminals, but for several previous failures as well. Sadly, the damage has already been done.
  • As Republicans continue to obstruct the impeachment investigation, new evidence in the form of internal White House emails has come out which shows that several higher-ups in the White House were fully aware of Trump's decision to blackmail Ukraine, particularly between Republicans Mick Mulvaney and Pat Cipollone.
  • Still bowing to the dictator of Turkey, the White House told the overly compliant Republican Lindsey Graham to block a bill that would officially recognize Turkey's genocide of the Armenian people. Graham has been doing serious damage to freedom in USA for decades now, but he's really ramped up now that he worships Trump.

I've added pages for the CD-i format and the CDI 910 player.

  • Gordon Sondland, a man who paid Trump a million dollars to become an ambassador, testified explicitly that Trump demanded a quid pro quo, and that all of the Republican higher-ups were in on it and helped him carry it out.
  • Because Republican Lindsey Graham lacks a spine, he continues to do Trump's dirty work. In order to appease Trump, Graham is starting an investigation into an American citizen, not because there is evidence of wrong doing, but because Trump lied that there was. This will also damage the US's relationship with our ally, Ukraine.
  • The Republican National Convention pissed away almost $100,000 buying copies of Donald Trump Jr.'s ghost written book in an attempt to put the book on best seller lists.
  • Stephen Miller is a white supremacist, but Trump loves him, so he will remain in the very white House.
  • Republican Matt Bevin, who lost his Senate seat to a Democrat despite Trump's glowing praise (in Kentucky no less!), helped Trump's wallet by staying at a Trump hotel with Kentucky taxpayers footing the bill. This is just another example of Trump using the office of the presidency for personal profiting, i.e., corruption.
  • One thing you can say about Republicans over the past three years, their disgusting corrupt behavior has really disenfranchised a lot of people against them, especially women.
  • Democrats continue to vie for the top.

  • Yet another witness agrees. Gordon Sondland testified that Trump was completely on board with the effort to blackmail Ukraine. Trump tried holding a press conference of his own to distract people, but it was all lies as usual. Also, Lt. Col. Vindman did a great job defending the Constitution and himself. Meanwhile, Trump is referring to everyone investigating his crimes as "human scum."
  • Trump pardons soldiers who commit war crimes while attacking those with fantastic records who disagree with him.
  • Writing down talking points in the stupidest way possible is the sort of thing you would expect from a really great brain.
  • Barry Myers, who would ruin the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to better serve his corporate interests in AccuWeather, has withdrawn from consideration. He claims it's because of his health, but it's far more likely because journalists have uncovered a long list of sexual harassment allegations that AccuWeather has tried to sweep under the rug, which would only get worse if he were appointed.

  • More testimony has been given against Trump in the impeachment hearings. It's all damning. American soldiers and bipartisan government employees are all in agreement, Trump used his power as President to blackmail an American ally into pretending to investigate an innocent American citizen in the hopes of increasing his chances at reelection, and Trump attacked the witnesses as they testified.
  • Politicians are people, and people get sick. There is no shame in that, and we should expect our elected officials to have privacy in that regard. However, Trump being Trump, he can't just say, "I'm sick, but the doctors tell me it's nothing to worry about," no, he has to lie through his teeth and claim he has nothing but free time during his impeachment.

  • Under Republican leadership, the USA now has the world's highest rate of incarcerated children.
  • As the not at all sexy impeachment hearings continue, more evidence comes out about Trump's multitude of crimes and general sleazy behavior. At this point, it's very predictable.
  • Republican Steven Menashi has problems with women, the LGBT, Muslims, student, and non-white people. Not only did Republicans approve him to be a life-time judge, but he also will be the one who decides whether Trump can be held accountable for crimes committed in New York.
  • Republicans keep trying to make it harder for people to be counted in the US Census, because they want to silence the voices of immigrants and the poor, but you should still be counted!
  • Another one bites the dust! Mina Chang is resigning after journalists pointed out that the lied on her resume, including, just like Trump before her, having a doctored Time magazine made with her face on the cover.
  • Trump, too stupid to understand how quotation marks work, claims Nancy Pelosi said something that actually came from the misinformation network, Fox.
  • Conservative Justice Roberts, perhaps hoping this will all blow over before the US Supreme Court has to rule on it, is temporarily protecting Trump's tax returns from seeing the light of justice.

Over the weekend I beat Penguin Wars for the Game Boy. I also added to the false origins used by Christians page with the fake origin of the Christmas carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

  • The primary defense that Republicans can muster against the impeachment hearings are, not that Trump didn't commit an impeachable offense (he did!), but that they hearings aren't very exciting. They're not supposed to be exciting, this is a real life presidential impeachment that will have huge implications for the future of our nation, not a made-for-TV court case. If you want a basic primer on this, Sesame Street is here to help.
  • Three US soldiers murdered unarmed civilians. They were investigates by military police and criminal charges were upheld, and the soldiers put in military prison. Trump pardoned them.

I've added a page for comics.

  • Trump has committed several crimes while in office, but it doesn't matter how guilty he is, Republicans continue to blindly support every criminal act he commits, and Trump gets to keep appointing the people who will judge him. Mitch McConnell prevented Obama from appointing judges until there were over 100 vacancies which put a horrible strain on the US legal system. After Trump was elected, Republicans used Trump like a tool, tricking him into pushing through anti-choice judges no matter how unqualified or bigoted they are. Now, all these judges are being asked to rule on Trump's crimes.
  • Speaking of incompetent judges, the ultra-Conservatives who helped drunkard and sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh get appointed to a life-time position on the US Supreme Court was met with brave protesting women.
  • But the judges were not in favor of Trump ally Roger Stone who was just found guilty on all seven of his crimes regarding Trump and Russia, including lying to law enforcement, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering!
  • While Trump's fate was being decided, with open arms, he welcomed the man who slaughtered US allies.
  • Ohio Republicans have OKed a bill that would prevent teachers from marking exam questions as wrong, even when they're factually incorrect, provided the student really truly believes that the answer is right. Republicans believe that being wrong should be protected by the student's religious freedom. So, if a Hindu student, on a biology test, says that cats cause pregnant women to go into premature labor, the teacher has to smile and agree.
  • After losing another appeal, Trump begs the US Supreme Court to let him continue to hide his tax returns.
  • Three Americans have been found guilty of war crimes, including murder and desecration of a corpse. Trump is getting ready to pardon them. Trump keeps helping criminal soldiers while abandoning the veterans.
  • Republicans don't like the idea of turning Columbus Day into Indigenous Peoples day, mostly because they don't even know what indigenous people are.
  • Trump's spiritual advisor is a Christian con artist.

A white cop in Prima County Arizona beat up a black quadruple amputee teenager, then, when the cop discovered he was being filmed, he attacked the teenager who was filming him and arrested them both.

I added a page for the Barenaked Ladies album, Stunt.

  • The Trump Impeachment hearings began with William B. Taylor Jr., acting ambassador to Ukraine, adding more testimony against Trump saying that he did indeed blackmail Ukraine.
  • Brietbart News is a racist rag that actively works to attack minorities and spread misinformation. For years, they were run by Steve Bannon, an unapologetic white nationalist, and, when Bannon entered the spotlight because of Trump, so to did his racist organization. After learning that Brietbart had direct ties to white supremacists and neo-Nazis, a lot of advertisers pulled out for fear of being associated with them. Basically, they're the scum of the earth, so, naturally, Facebook views Brietbart as high quality journalism, the same category it affords to the New York Times. When Mark Zuckerberg was asked why they included racist hate speech in their list of trusted journalists, he didn't address their lies, but only said people like a variety of news from "different perspectives." Sadly, Zuckerberg doesn't seem to understand that lies aren't a perspective.
  • Trump spoke of his loving relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and patted himself on the back for ending their missile tests. But of course, they're still testing missiles.
  • Humanists International has released their latest global report. The good news is, more countries around the world have ditched their anti-blasphemy laws. The bad news is, after three years of Trump promoting the hatred of education, science, and non-white people, the US has fallen from 8th place to 32nd in their rankings.
  • Trump's selling of pristine US parks to mining companies continues unabated.
  • We don't need more books featuring Trump, we need more prisons featuring Trump.
  • Trump refuses to release the full transcript with his call to Ukraine, so why would we trust him to release other calls?
  • Yet another school shooting. Republicans will did nothing to prevent it, and will do nothing to stop it.

I created a page for Structured Query Language, 6502 machine language, and

  • A slew of emails from Trump's senior policy adviser Stephen Miller have been leaked. They confirm the accusations, Miller is a white nationalist. The many emails show him in seeking out white supremacists, frequently basing his decisions on white supremacist conspiracies, attacking non-white individuals, and adopting immigration policies similar to those used by Adolf Hitler.
  • After abandoning US allies to be slaughtered by Turkey, Trump is inviting the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who ordered the slaughter to the White House for handshakes and back-patting.
  • Remember when Trump hung a fake Time magazine at his golf course that was doctored to have his face on it? I guess turnabout is fair play, because Trump was just tricked into hiring Mina Chang who presented a fake resume including an equally fake Time magazine cover with her face.
  • Republican Marsha Blackburn thought she was quoting Jesus, she wasn't. She also thought she was using a quote to defend Trump, she wasn't.

  • There is a joy in watching terrible people fight. Republican Mick Mulvaney is blaming Republican Pat Cipollone for not doing enough to help obstruct the impeachment inquiry, while Cipollone blames Mulvaney for admitting Trump's quid pro quo on national television. And while watching in-fighting between criminals is fun, Republicans still support party over country to the end. Republican Peter T. King, despite the fact that he's resigning and he can vote his conscience without fear of reprisal, and without even hearing any of the latest testimony or evidence against Trump, still said he would not vote to impeach Trump.
  • Republicans spell out their message quite clearly: They're not interested in getting people to vote, they're interested in getting older well-off people to vote.
  • Poor Lindsay Graham, how does he stand without a spine?
  • Roy Zimmerman does a duet with Deven Green.

  • Republican Mike Pompeo is having a bad day. Pompeo told the press that Michael McKinley never said a word to him about the firing of Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, McKinley has testified under oath that he most certainly did.
  • The fact that Bill Barr refused isn't newsworthy, but is is newsworthy that Trump asked him to publicly state how blackmailing Ukraine was perfectly legal.
  • Proving just how focused he is on the presidency, Trump is thinking about going back to being a game show host.
  • Tennessee Republicans have a choice between a doctor who say Jesus forgives him for sexually assaulted his patients and a racist scumbag.

I've updated all my music-themed pages on my Wiki so that listed genres are now links, and created a page for the current most popular genre, alternative rock.

  • Republican Rand Paul thinks Trump should be allowed to publicly name the whistleblower who reported his Ukrainian blackmail, citing the sixth amendment which allows a defendant to confront their accuser. Of course, he's absolutely wrong. Impeachment is not a criminal trial, so the sixth doesn't apply, and, even if it were, both Trump and Rand Paul most likely already know the whistle blower's name and could publicly state it without recourse, they just want Democrats or the media to do their dirty work for them. Not that the identity of the whistle blower matters, six people, who were active Republicans or appointed by Republicans, have already went on record saying that, yes, Trump did indeed blackmail the president of Ukraine in order to harm a political rival.
  • Trump's wall is so useless that, not only can you cut through it with an over-the-counter saw, but it can be climbed over by an eight-year-old!
  • US District Judge Paul Friedman accurately states that Trump "violates all recognized democratic norms."
  • Republicans have used various shady and corrupt methods to raise an obscene amount of campaign money.
  • Lindsey Graham doesn't think Trump blackmailed a foreign nation because he refuses to read the transcript.
  • Let's keep the Southern victories going through to the next election!

I've changed my tech page to the computer page and added a pages for operating systems, software, hardware, and the Internet.

  • After Trump blackmailed a US ally to cast doubt on his political rivals, he also asked Republican William Barr to publicly absolve him. Barr likes to think himself superior with his great Christian morals, but he's as dirty as they come.
  • Trump keeps telling people to "read the transcript!" Two things about that: one, we did, that's why everyone knows you've committed a crime. Two, that's not even a transcript, but a rough transcript. You're still hiding the full transcript.
  • Why did Republican Gordon Sondland change his testimony about the quid pro quo? Probably because he learned that a lot of other witnesses were spilling the beans, and he didn't want to go to prison for perjury.
  • Trump has lost another lawsuit and has been ordered to personally pay $2,000,000 to a nonprofit group because of his criminal charity violations. It's a start.
  • Republicans love discriminating against women, racial minorities, and the LGBT. For centuries they've been fighting to keep their bigotry codified into US law, even to the point of denying medicine, but their fight just got a little harder now that a US District Judge ruled that people can't just claim their religion allows them to refuse medical treatment.
  • Republican Mike Pence has had an active hand in rerouting US aide to ensure that it only helps his fellow Christians.

I finished reading Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Hated it!

  • With Trump's ambassador to the EU testifying that Trump did indeed demand a quid pro quo from Ukraine, that makes six high-level administrators agreeing against him. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, former Ukraine Ambassador William B. Taylor, Tim Morrison, Republican Senator Ron Johnson, and Republican acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
  • Republicans are going to hold onto Trump no matter how deep into the bowels of hell he drags them. In a way, that's good, because it will cause irreparable damage to their party, but, in the process, it's going to cause irreparable harm to our country as well.
  • A couple months ago, Trump offered to help Vladamir Putin douse the Russian wildfires. Today, Trump is cutting funding to the West coast to douse America's wildfires. Trump is truly the "Russia First" president.
  • Under Trump, white supremacists have become emboldened, but most of them still hide their overt racism behind a veneer of "heritage" and "culture." Take for example Richard Spencer, who doesn't consider himself a white supremacist, bur rather "alt-right." Shortly after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters and murdered Heather Heyer, Spencer held an emergency meeting where he was recorded issuing a long tirade of racist slurs and hate against Jews and black people. Despite his attempt to put racism in a cheap suit and haircut, he's still racist garbage. And don't forget, Trump said there were good people on both sides.
  • Trump has always bragged that he likes to sexually assault women, and, though she doesn't have recordings, one of his accusers has been able to show that Trump had called her directly several times.
  • Trump tried going out in public again and he was thoroughly booed again! Shaming and mocking Trump is what good honest people do.
  • Warren for 2020.

I've added a page for the video game, A-Train.

  • Nancy Polosi talks about the impeachment investigation against Trump and how well it's progressing after the House passed the vote with every Republican refusing to accept that Trump's blackmailing of a foreign government for his own person gain was wrong.
  • Republicans are claiming that the portions of the US Constitution that outline how to impeach the President are unconstitutional! They're also refusing to testify or even show up for the impeachment inquiries. If an ordinary American tried that, they would rightly be arrested and put in jail, but Republicans pride themselves on being above the law.
  • Trump referred to those who don't blindly follow everyone of his crazed decisions as "human scum." Rather than come up with a creative way to spin Trump's hate speech, the White House's new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, kicked off her new job by say, yes, Trump's critics are indeed human scum. This isn't unexpected considering that more than one Trump employee has come forward saying they were told they would be fired if they didn't publicly praise him.
  • Everyone knew it was only a matter of time before it happened, but Trump pushed it through anyway. The Keystone oil pipeline, which so many Native Americans protested for years to demand it not be allowed to plow through their land, many of whom were arrested and tortured for trying to stop its construction, has just dumped 383,000 gallons of crude oil into wetlands. The wildlife there has been dangerously contaminated and will remain polluted for decades, if not centuries.
  • Another loss for Trump as his appeal to keep his taxes hidden fails in court.
  • Trump's non-stop crime spree makes it difficult to focus on all the other news that's going on.

I've begun a page on the Video Graphics Array hardware.

  • New information on Trump's criminal call to Ukraine. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman explained how White House lawyer John Eisenberg, after being informed of Trump's blackmail conversation, took the phone call's transcripts and hid them. Naturally, Fox and Republicans are saying every bigoted thing they can think of to discredit the American veteran.
  • The House of Representatives has officially voted on and passed the impeachment inquiry. 194 Republicans voted against it, which means, 194 Republicans care more about their party than the country. Very strangely 2 Democrats voted against it, which means 2 Democrats are going to have a hard time getting re-elected!
  • Trump posted an obviously fake photo of himself giving the medal of honor, one of America's highest military awards, to the canine who helped Navy Seals take down Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The original photo was of James McCloughan, a retired army medic who saved the lives of 10 people in Vietnam, but Trump, apparently preferred the dog. In addition to dishonoring the US soldier, Trump also inadvertently declassified the dog's name which was supposed to be secret. When asked about the secrecy, Trump confirmed the name, just in case there was any doubt. Just another boneheaded move from Trump.
  • Trump chose Lawrence VanDyke to be a federal judge. However, during the Judiciary Committee to determine if he is capable, the committee read various personal opinions from VanDyke's colleagues in the American Bar Association. They described his as lazy, incompetent, unqualified, and pointed out that VanDyke himself refused to say he would judge LGBT people fairly. After hearing all his colleague's criticism against him, VanDyke broke down crying. Naturally, Republicans ignored all of the criticism and accused the ABA of bigotry against Conservatives.
  • Dr. Randall Williams, Missouri's state health director appointed by Republican Pat McCrory, was keeping private records of women's menstrual cycles without their knowledge or consent, in an attempt to determine if they were secretly having abortions.

I added a page for The Fratellis' song Whistle For the Choir.

  • National Security Council Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified that Republicans doctored the transcript of Trump's phone call to Ukraine by purposely removing the most incriminating portions.
  • I love that Trump finally got a taste of what the American public really think of him, and I hope he goes to public events more.
  • After years of claiming the Obama didn't lift a finger to stop Osama Bin Laden, Trump is now trying to take all the credit for killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but it's not going as well as he planned.
  • Republican Paul Petersen, used his Mormon church to commit a whole slew of crimes including human smuggling, sale of a child, fraud, forgery, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. And, true to form for a Republican, Peterson's attorney is arguing, not only should he be able to keep his government job in spite of all these crimes, but suspending him for something as minor as selling children is unconstitutional!
  • Trump only hires the best men for the job.

A Catholic adoption agency is demanding that they be allowed to continue to discriminate against any potential parents who don't adhere to their strict Christian moral code. Apparently, protecting child raping priests is good, but a child being raised by loving parents who aren't married is a mortal sin. Thankfully, the courts don't seem to be as ignorant as they are.

You can't reduce corruption simply by fighting it, you also have to make the world a better place.

And why is he now talking about a military invasion for their oil right after claiming he wanted to get out of the Middle East (but not until we sell US troops to Saudi Arabia?
  • GM, Chrysler, and Toyota are siding with Trump when it comes to the elimination of state's rights. They don't care about the environment, they don't care about small government, they only care about not having to make their vehicles pollute less, and they'll stake their reputations on a criminal president who is being impeached to remain dirty.
  • SNL accurately captures the average Trump supporter, and Trump's criminal sons.

Over the weekend, I finished reading Seth Andrews's book Sacred Cows.

  • Trump is so used to controlling who is around him, he has the privilege of not knowing that most of the country hates him. However, when he goes to a public event, rather than one of his Klan rallies, he gets an earful.
  • Why does Trump brief Russian politicians before briefing American politicians? Because he knows who he's really beholden to.
  • Trump owes over $1,000,000 in unpaid bills to cities all over the nation for his fascist rallies.
  • Because he's a narcissus, Trump tries to turn his gaffes into jokes.
  • Bobby Rankin snubbed Republican Mitch McConnell, not just because McConnell is a monster, but because McConnell's destruction of veteran benefits caused extra strife for Bobby's now deceased veteran brother.
  • Republicans just knowingly elected a convicted child predator to a government job, because, of course they did.

  • Trump's lawyers are spelling out what Republican Attorney General William Barr hinted at: Republicans believe the President can literally murder someone in public and not be arrested until they leave office.
  • Trump's impeachment investigation is going great for people who care about justice, but not so great for Republicans. When they broke into the secure section of the House of Representatives to disrupt Trump's impeachment, they did more that break the law, they compromised national security. With their cell phones filming and microphones recording, Republicans just gave anyway any secrets of the room to every hostile government in the world.
  • Abortion rates are in decline, not because Republicans are criminalizing it, but because Democrats are ensuring people have easy access to birth control.
  • The US has a long history of allowing white men to form mobs and murder black people without charge or trial in a criminal process called lynching. For centuries, black people everywhere lived in fear that they would be murdered in such a horrible way. So, when a white man complains that people investigating their crimes is a "lynching," it's not only impossible to take them seriously, but it's also an admission on their part of racism.

  • After Trump abandoned US allies to die in Syria, Turkey and Russia declared their intent to share the area the US once protected. Meanwhile, Trump brags mission accomplished. And Trump didn't just purposely abandon our Kurdish allies in Syria, he's even abandoning them here in the USA as well.
  • Trump's ambassador to Ukraine explained that, yes, the hold on military aide to Ukraine was for a quid pro quo, and, yes, Trump was directly responsible. Republicans violate the law to cause a small riot in the House of Representatives. Mick Mulvaney tries to say he didn't say what he said, and Rudy Giuliani is still crazy.

I've broken out a page specifically for video game controllers and added a page for the company Tecmo and the home computer, the ZX Spectrum.

  • Trump used to pretend to love the Kurds, then they got in the way of his Turkish hotel, so they had to die. Literally thousands of people from American allied nations are dead, and it's Trump's fault. He personally helped ISIS terrorists to escape prison and expand their territory in Syria. Trump needs to be impeached, then arrested, then imprisoned.
  • Trump, still not sure why people think it's wrong of him to use the US Presidency as his own personal checkbook, gets annoyed when even Republicans complain, so he decided not to host the G7 at his own resort. But his acting Chief of Staff (because he still doesn't have a real one) Mick Mulvaney is still loyal and tried to do damage control by explaining why it's okay for Trump to be especially corrupt because he's in the hotel business. Uh, no! Presidents are not supposed to be in any business! They're supposed to sell their businesses or put them in blind trusts. Trump did neither!
  • Trump is literally selling the US military to fight Saudi Arabia's wars. The USA is now a mercenary nation.
  • Trump gives the middle finger after women astronauts corrected his ignorance of women in space. He might argue that he was merely scratching his face with his middle finger, but he seems to do this an awful lot when people correct his stupidity.
  • Remember how Trump can't actually read, and Jerry Fawell Jr. had an affair with his pool boy? Samantha Bee remembers.
  • New Jersey Mayor, Republican Ed McKelvey, went on a hate-speech rant against same-sex marriage at a church because he was too stupid to realize an online article about the US Supreme Court legalizing incest was a joke!

Well-educated people whose understanding of the world grows and adapts to new information are exactly the type of people we need leading the country. Too bad we never elect them!

The Reid Technique is a form of interrogation taught to law enforcement. Although its goal is to get criminals to confess crimes, what actually ends up happening very frequently is it manipulates innocent people into confessing to crimes they didn't commit. The TV show When They See Us, which is about how police tricked five children into confessing to a horrible crime, but eventually discovered that the five children were innocent (Trump still says they're guilty), explained exactly what it wrong with the Reid technique, so now the people who teach the technique are trying to sue the creators!

For the majority of the existence of the Mormon Church, they have been extremely racist, explaining the origin of dark skin as their god punishing white people by turning their skin black so everyone would know they're evil. Then, just as they were about to lost their tax exempt status for racism, the leaders of the church claimed their god told them to start accepting black people among their ranks, only to later acknowledge it wasn't their god after all, they were just being racist. You'd think with their extremely embarrassing past they would take a more progressive approach to LGBT rights, but, no, they're still backing the torture of gay people in an attempt to "fix" their sexuality.

Marlon Anderson, a black security guard, was called the n-word by a student, and Anderson told the student not to call him the n-word, so, the high school fired him for using the n-word.

I added a page for media which features a queer character.

  • After denying it for weeks, Republicans are now openly admitting the Trump demanded a quid pro quo from the Ukraine, says that they do it all the time, and told Americans to just get over it! This may have been in response to Gordon Sondland, Trump's ambassador to the European Union, admitting that Trump ordered him to work with Rudy Giuliani to blackmail Ukraine. Sondland's admission is nice, but it's not like he's a hero. Remember, he spent about $1,000,000 of tax payer money renovating his own home.
  • The parents of Harry Dunn, the 19-year-old who was hit and killed by Anne Sacoolas who was driving on the wrong side of the road, and then fled the country to escape punishment, were brought to the USA to meet with Trump. Trump made sure the cameras were rolling when he surprised the parents by telling them, with no prior warning, that they could meet with the woman who killed their son, but only if they did it right now, while he filmed them. The parents explained they are very willing to meet Sacoolas, but only with therapists and mediators there to help resolve the issue, they refused to use their tragedy to be a publicity stunt for a disgusting ghoul like Trump!

I added a page on software distribution models, and, where applicable, categorized all the software on my Wiki as freeware, shareware, crippleware, nagware, and adware.

  • After Trump witlessly pulled US forces out of Syria leaving Kurdish forces to be invaded by Turkey so Trump's Turkish real estate would do better, Kurds are now seeking protection by US enemy, Russia. Funny how everything involving Trump always ends up in Russia for some reason. Even after someone explained to Trump how ISIS terrorists are being held captive by the Kurds, and, if the Kurds fall, all the terrorists will be released, Trump said they would only kill our allies in Europe, so, who cares? Someone must have finally got through to Trump, because he eventually decided to impose sanctions on Turkey, but, as usual with Trump, it's too little too late.
  • Rudy Giuliani's associates, and good friends of Trump, are in jail, and Giuliani might not be far behind, what with all the crimes.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo is trying to cover up the fact that he's part of the most corrupt White House in the history of our country by using his office to preach his religion. Little does he know that using a secular position of power to preach your religion is, in itself, a form of corruption.
  • Republicans openly admit they know Trump is racist, know he's unqualified, know he's ruining the country, but they will continue to vote for him anyway.
  • White supremacy in my own backyard, and maybe the police shouldn't be so eager to protect Nazis?
  • Why is there such a huge wealth disparity in the USA? Because Republicans keep >rewarding the companies that make it happen.

  • The leaders of the US military wants to remain in Syria, US allies want the US military to stay in Syria, even other Republicans want the US military to stay in Syria, but Russia does not want the US military to stay in Syria. Therefore, Trump ordered the US military to withdraw from Syria and refuses to listen to all his experts, generals, and fellow Republicans.
  • More is happening in the impeachment process, and Trump's latest scandals are only helping it along.
  • Republican Rick Perry didn't even know what the Department of Energy did when he was chosen to run it, and he forgot that it even existed during his run for president. Despite these facts, Trump chose him to lead it. Now Trump is throwing Perry under the bus blaming him for setting up the Ukraine corruption phone call, and Perry is being subpoenaed by Congress. The White House has already openly defying Congress by denying them access to investigate, so Perry might not even respond.
  • True to form, Trump spent national Coming Out Day meeting with hate groups.
  • Because he's a bigot, Republican William Barr, Trump's Attorney General, is blaming all of society's ills on the non-religious. Of course, the most secular nations are actually doing fantastic, which shows Barr, like all bigots, is also really ignorant.

I gave up on reading Gone Girl, an absolute garbage novel.

  • Republicans are calling for the execution of the person who blew the whistle on Trump's criminal Ukraine call, but it turns out at least four different US national security officers raised alarms about the call. Trump thinks he's above the law, and Republicans doing everything in their power to make that so, but the impeachment is on the wall, and if they drag this out long enough, maybe the next president will actually hold him accountable.
  • With his long history of not paying his bills, event centers have finally wised up and are demanding Trump pay for his klan rallies up front. Naturally, he threatened to sue. And, while at the rally, Trump spewed forth an attack against refugees saying they hate America and shamed anyone who wants to care for the needy.
  • Trump did run on a campaign of being a "deal maker," and that's precisely what his followers got. Trouble is, his "deals" always seem to involve helping the criminals who work for him.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo, Trump's flavor of the month for Secretary of State, has just lost his senior adviser Michael McKinley who wisely resigned rather then get caught up in the impeachment scandal.
  • Facebook's official policy allows politicians to lie about anything and everything in their ads, but then, Facebook has a long history of messing up.

  • When the person you back turns out to be a rapist, a con man, and a flagrantly abuses the power you've entrusted him with, the wise thing to do is to disavow him, distance yourself from him as far as possible, and demand justice against him, but Republicans are anything but wise. They're openly defying the entire American justice system in order to protect their criminal. This is why you don't get involved with a cult of personality. As Trump continues to break the law with impunity, his helpers who aren't above the law continue to get arrested while trying to flee the country, yet again on campaign finance violations involved with Russia!
  • The only reason the US made any headway in slowing the invasion of Syria by ISIS was because Kurds did our fighting for us. Then, Trump left them to die (16 fatalities and growing) at the hands of Turkey, strange because Trump has nothing but hatred for Muslims and Turkey is an almost exclusively Muslim nation. The Turks have invaded the Kurds and Trump is dismissing the fact that US allies are being invaded by saying the Kurds didn't help the US in World War II.
  • Anne Sacoolas, an American politician's wife living in the UK, was driving on the wrong side of the road and smashed into teenager, Harry Dunn, killing him. Rather than go through the UK legal system, Sacoolas declared diplomatic immunity and she and her family hastily fled the UK back to the USA leaving the dead teen's family begging for justice. Trump not only callously shrugged off the killing, but found a way to make it about himself, saying, "The woman was driving on the wrong side of the road. And that can happen, you know. Those are the opposite roads. That happens. I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did."
  • It's funny how Republicans tout law and order, yet completely hate the FBI and CIA.

I finished reading Deconverted: A Journey From Religion to Reason. I also added a page for a Social Security notice hoax.

  • Trump is crying foul over his impeachment even as new impeachable offenses keep being made public and even as he demands more of his critics be impeached. For example, Republicans ordered Gordon Sondland, a key witness in the Ukraine corruption scandal, to refuse to attend his deposition or any questions from investigators. The Republican strategy here seems to be, the crime of obstructing justice is less-damaging to Trump than any testimony Sondland might give.
  • Financial organization Goldman Sachs explains how all of the fallout from Trump's trade wars has fallen entirely on US businesses and households. This basically translates to an increased price in most of what you buy in the store specifically because of Trump's misguided actions.

  • Republicans are once again trying to make it a crime for Americans to use strong encryption. Trump's Attorney General William Barr, a criminal in his own right, is using the tired argument that encryption prevents law enforcement from stopping child predators... you know, like Trump's friend, Jeffery Epstein. The reality is, like a car, a computer, or a camera, encryption can be used to commit crimes, but that doesn't mean it should be illegal, especially at a time when mass surveillance in the USA has never been worse.
  • US National Security said Trump got "rolled" by Turkish President when he agreed to withdraw US forces from Northern Syria which is precisely what was wanted by Turkey, Russia, and ISIS.
  • The Trump's eventually realized that they were about to allow an anti-Muslim hate group to throw a party at Mar-a-Lago and canceled the event. The hate group said, they still support the Trumps and blame the Left for stopping them.

I've created a page for the gaming trope, boss tease.

  • The founding fathers weren't perfect, and they clearly didn't think-through the process of impeachment, but it's still the right thing to do. As is typical with Trump, when he's accused of a crime, his go-to response is to accusing everyone else of what he did. So, to those who are investigating him for possible treason, he's accusing of treason. Meanwhile, he and his fellow Republicans are trying various tactics to avoid blame including admitting to crimes before they blow up in an attempt to normalize the crime and trying to declare total ignorance, but maybe they should try arguing that you can't be immoral if you're too ignorant to know right from wrong?
  • I've spoke with a couple Republicans who don't understand why it's wrong for Trump to give and take favors from sketchy foreign nations, and Trump gives me another example. The USA has been helping Kurdish troops fight ISIS in Syria, and they have successfully taken back the region. However, Turkey wants the Kurds out of there so they can control Northern Syria themselves, and, just as the Trump's started construction of a new Trump tower in Turkey, Donald Trump stated publicly that the US military will no longer support the Kurds or interfere with Turkey going to war with them! The Trumps will gladly sacrifice American allies to get a real estate deal.

I've made pages for the MacVenture game series and the Gauntlet game series.

  • Another world leader, another request to take down Trump's political rivals. Trump may have been trying to cover up an earlier meeting when he asked China to investigate the Bidens yesterday, because we're now learning that Trump privately asked Chinese ruler Xi Jinping to investigate the Bidens and Elizabeth Warren back in June. Republicans still claim there is no evidence of a quid pro quo in any of these three meetings, but, obviously, any objective observer sees each as such. New evidence has been released which show Trump did indeed want Ukraine to investigate the Bidens even before the phone call, he withheld their military aid, and then asked the president to do him a favor, and Ukrainian diplomats have even been quoted saying they were worried of a quid pro quo! Even our own White House was afraid the conversation would get out to the public and locked it away in a hidden vault. Naturally, Republicans are trying to discredit the evidence, and even calling for violence to befall those investigating them.
  • More commentary about Trump's 2,000-mile-long alligator moat.
  • Republicans do not care about state's rights. Iowa painted a couple crosswalks in the colors of various LGBT movements, so, naturally federal Republicans demanded they stop. Specifically, Mitch McConnell's wife, Republican Elaine Chao. But, the roads that were painted were state-funded roads, not federal highways! So, not only are Republicans trying to take away state's rights, they're specifically trying to take away the things that have nothing to do with the federal government!

I've created a page for the Hello Saferide song, I Thought You Said Summer Is Going to Take the Pain Away.

  • Trump has been throwing tantrums since even before he became president, but now that the impeachment is heating up, he's at the point where he's claiming that those who don't support him should be guilty of treason. Things have only gotten worse as Trump picked a fight with journalists at his meeting with the President of Finland and then openly asked China to find dirt on his political opponents.
  • A second whistleblower has come forward saying that Republicans, Trump especially, used their positions of power to stop the IRS from performing the necessary audit of Trump's and Pence's taxes.
  • Republican Mike Pompeo appears to be trying to intimidate his employees at the State Department into not cooperating with the impeachment investigation.
  • At a time when Rudy Giuliani is being investigated for his corrupt dealings with Ukraine, he doesn't seem to want to stop having long talks with federal criminal Paul Manafort who went to prison for... corrupt dealings with Ukraine.

  • Demonstrating the point, if you condition people by being terrible long enough, nobody will be bothered when you do something terrible, a poll shows that fewer than 20% of Americans are surprised that Trump blackmailed a foreign government to try to win the upcoming election, but, thankfully, most Americans still see this as a serious problem. But it isn't just blackmailing a foreign government that Trump has been accused of, there is a lot more to the whistleblower complaint including the misuse of a private sever to hide all his underhanded dealings, and he isn't exactly trying to be subtle about hiding his guilt, and neither is his loose-lipped lawyer. Trump is now going full-on tyrant saying those people who investigate his crimes should be arrested for treason and, if he's impeached, the US will have another civil war, but Republican Adam Kinzinger repudiates him. Trouble is, most of Trump's backers have dug in this deep, they're afraid to pull out now and Trump continues to try and lie his way out.

  • Trump's made his bed of corruption and while he claims to have willingly given up the rough transcript of the call, the whistleblower complaint shows that Republicans did everything in their power to eliminate the records. Hopefully, this will ultimately lead to Trump's impeachment. The telephone transcript between him and Ukraine clearly show him offering up the help of the US Department of Justice to a foreign government in order to uncover dirt on his political rivals. True to form, Trump is trying to lie his way out of it, first by claiming his hold on the military aid was for security reasons (the Pentagon refuted his claim), then claiming he did it because Biden's son is a criminal (Ukraine's legal system refutes this), and finally by claiming he can't be impeached or the stock market will crash.

I've reworked my page on video games that can be put into an unwinnable state.

  • A rough transcript of Trump's call to the president of Ukraine has been made available. This isn't a recording, but rather the combined statements of those in the room listening to the phone call. The transcript shows that the accusations against Trump saying he requested Ukraine work with Attorney General William Barr to find dirt on the Bidens is all true! Apparently, he also asked them to help him find the email server of Hillary Clinton (seriously!) to which the Ukraine president agreed to help. He didn't have much choice, because Trump had stopped the military aid Congress approved for them to defend against a Russian invasion. Turns out, Trump's own advisors expected him to take this corrupt route and tried to disrupt the phone call as much as possible! Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed he was among the first to see the transcript of the call, which pissed off a lot of actual government officials who say they should have been the first to know.

  • The current facts about Trump and the call to Ukraine are, he definitely ordered his Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, to withhold military aid before he made the call. He admitted to talking about Joe Biden's son. All that's missing is him admitting the two are connected, but the White House is trying to keep silent about such a disgraceful act and instead attacking the credibility of the whistleblower. This has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to state that she will begin a formal impeachment inquiry, which has caused Trump to change tunes on releasing the transcripts!

I finished reading Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot.

  • More details about the crime Trump committed that was so bad his own employees blew the whistle on him. It appears that Trump, once again, asked a foreign power to investigate his political rivals. Trump is accused of withholding military aide from Ukraine, which they desperately needed to stop a Russian invasion, unless the nation agreed to re-open their corruption case against a petroleum company that Joe Biden's son is involved with. So far, Trump has admitted that he spoke to Ukraine about the Bidens, and so has his lawyer Rudolph Giuliani, after lying about it first. Trump, Giuliani, and Trump's Press Secretary (a former Fox employee) all refuse to share the transcripts or even talk to the press about anything at all. This administration's White House has been nothing but leaks since day one, but the worst leaker in Trump's mouth. Seriously, the military has to constantly tell him to stop revealing their secrets!

Last night I beat the game, Digital: A Love Story.

  • Still only surface details about the whistleblower have been leaked by White House staff. They're claiming that the person who reported severe corruption by Trump making an obscene promise to a foreign leader involves the nation of Ukraine. Ukraine has been in the news since 2014 when Russia invaded and conquered a part of the nation. Based on his past, we can probably assume that Trump's back-room deal was not only terrible for the USA, but also highly illegal. In fact, his personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani is once again making a mess for Trump, getting caught up in his own lies, and implied that he and Trump asked Ukraine to get dirt on Joe Biden.
  • I have no love of our nation's wasteful military spending, and I would prefer to see the entire military budget cut to less than one tenth its current size, but I can still critique Trump's hypocrisy. Despite all his claims that he's in favor of the US military, his priorities are always about himself. Case in point, he is pulling funding from the rebuilding of US military bases that were destroyed in the hurricane and using that money to build his useless border wall.
  • Don't trust pundits, Elizabeth Warren is kicking ass!
  • Trump nominated Republican billionaire Darrell Issa to be the Director of the US Trade and Development Agency, but, like everyone else Trump nominated, he has a background of crime and corruption that is making it hard for him to pass his background check.
  • Republican Robert O'Brien is just another criminal work for the Criminal and Chief.
  • Brett Kavanaugh could have respected the office of Supreme Court by demanding a full investigation of his past, but that's not typical behavior for a sexual predator.
  • Trump is bombing the hell out of Middle Eastern civilians, but he has yet to bring the nation into full-scale war, so I guess that's one incredibly low bar he's passed.
  • Climate change is a serious problem, and even Republicans used to see reason, but they're bought and paid for by old rich white guys who will be dead before the really bad stuff hits.
  • Republicans do not care about state's rights.
  • Republicans have been complaining about voter fraud for years, so it seemed rather odd that "Moscow" Mitch McConnell was doing everything in his power to stop a bill that would prevent voter fraud. Of course, if you're paying attention, you know why. When Republicans say "voter fraud" they mean, non-white voters, and the election security bill would primarily prevent hackers (who are mostly foreign white people) from infiltrating voter machines. Just like with the bill to cover the health care of 9/11 first responders, it took a lot of public shaming before Moscow Mitch finally caved and agreed to fund the voter protection bill.

  • America-first Trump is ready to take the USA into a war in the Middle East just as soon as Saudi Arabia tells him to, because he's a puppet. When every US intelligence organization said in agreement that Russia had purposely and covertly interfered with the US presidential election, Obama placed sanctions on the country. Shortly after being sworn in, Trump lifted those sanctions. Now, Iran is being accused of being responsible for bombing a Saudi Arabian oil field, but the evidence it scant. So, Trump is imposing sanctions against Iran.

  • Republican Brett Kavanaugh openly lied to a congressional panel and ranted and cried about how unfair it was that the allegations of sexual assault made against him by Christine Blasey Ford were allowed to be discussed. Of course, Republicans still confirmed him, despite his breakdown, and now, to add insult to injury, Republicans are awarding the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service to those lawyers who defended him. Republicans thought that giving a parade to a sexual predator would help his image, but it has only brought forth more allegations of sexual assault. Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's, also accused him of sexually assaulted her back in college, but the FBI is refused to investigate the list of witnesses, but now another woman has come out against Kavanaugh with a similar story and new calls for his impeachment are being made! As a fellow sexual assaulter, Trump continues to defend Kavanaugh saying it's not the women he assaulted, but Kavanaugh himself who is the real victim.
  • More details about the Bolton/Trump fiasco show Bolton offered to resign, then Trump lied about firing him.

The United Auto Workers Union has gone on strike against GM after they failed to reach a contract agreement. GM claims they just can't afford to give union members health care, yet the company made $11,800,000,000 in profit last year, and the CEO, Mary Barra, was paid just shy of $22,000,000, which is 281 times the average GM employee. Did she do 281 times the work?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has been tracking the number of high-impact storms since 1980, and what they've discovered is they have been steadily rising and doing more damage, and human-caused climate change is to blame.

I saw Seth Andrews give a lecture last night while volunteering with CFI.

I've added a page for the Youth Group song, TJ.

  • Most of Trump's businesses hired illegal immigrants for labor, and Trump and his family knew all about it.
  • The lone black Republican who showed up at a Trump rally and was called out by Trump as "my African American," has quit the party because he doesn't like Trump's "white superiority complex."
  • When a war monger isn't despicable enough to work for Trump, you know you have a problem.
  • Republicans are comparing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a genocidal maniac in their latest smear campaign which blames socialism for the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, which is odd, since they were Communists.
  • Donald Trump continues to shamelessly use the presidency as his own personal checkbook, and all Americans are footing the bill.

Whether it was created specifically to help slave owners or just had the side-effect of helping slave owners, the electoral college certainly helped slave owners.

Don't let the bastards grind you down

Feeling: Happy


I've created a page for works of media which have a strong female character, and the opposite, a damsel in distress.

  • While trying to defend his firing of John Bolton, Trump tried to paint himself as the voice of reason, which is a horrifying thought.
  • North Carolina Republicans didn't attend a 9/11 memorial so they could secretly change a budget law that they previously lost. Why was this possible? Because Democrats were honorably attending the 9/11 memorial ceremony. Democrats weren't entirely caught off guard by this, they knew Republicans were itching to perform a secret election, and Republican David Lewis even gave his word to the Governor that they would never do something so despicable as to deface the death of American citizens and first responders with something so sordid as a budget vote. Then, they did it anyway.
  • Republicans dismiss the fact that white supremacists are a major cause of terrorism in the USA, and they frequently blame Democrats for causing mass shootings, even when the shooters are saying Trump talking points verbatim. But don't take my word for this, Republicans say so themselves. And while universal background checks are a good start, if we really want to reduce mass shootings in this country, we have to take the same common sense approach used by all the countries who have far fewer shootings, require gun owners to undergo education and licensing.
  • The many, many lies Trump has told about 9/11.
  • Republican Jason Rapert installed an illegal ten commandments monument at the Arkansas State Capitol, and then had to defend it in court. His deposition was recorded, but he doesn't want anyone to have access to it because he's afraid his own words will make him look bad.
  • How many times does Trump need to "joke" about violating term limits before it stops being a joke?
  • Republican Matt Seely made a post online claiming that The Squad is proof that America has forgotten 9/11. Just like with North Carolina, Republicans have no decorum when it comes to using the deaths of innocent civilians for their political beliefs. Seely is not only grouping liberal Muslims with the fundamental Muslim terrorists who carried out 9/11 (which is as bigoted as saying liberal Christians are the same as the Westboro Baptists), but strangely includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the criticism despite her Judeo-Christian heritage. This is expected of Seely who, last year, also made an online post mocking women who don't accuse Republican men of sexually assaulting them within a length of time he deems appropriate.

Another day, another cop arrested for kidnapping and raping women.

I beat the Game Gear and Master System ports of X-Men: Mojo World which was especially bad.

  • Just prior to the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Trump invited the Taliban to the USA.
  • Trump made a mistake when he claimed Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama. The NOAA publicly contradicted him, not to be spiteful, but in order to prevent a state-wide panic. But Trump is such a petulant baby, he can't deal with anyone contradicting him, even when he's objectively wrong, so he made a huge deal over it, even altering a map with a black marker to make it look like the NOAA agreed with him. Afterward, Republican Wilbur Ross threatened to fire anyone at the NOAA who disagreed with Trump and then lied about it. We've seen this before dozens of time. Trump's cronies rush to his rescue, and up losing their credibility and reputation defending his lies.
  • After another bad report on the US economy, Trump said the Federal Reserve should offer negative interest rates to refinance debt, which I guess means he wants the US government to pay people for going into debt.
  • Republicans once again prove they are all in favor of big-government when there is a paycheck. The tobacco lobby has been attacking the vaping industry ever since it began, and Republicans are about to give them the law they so desperately crave. Remember, smoking is responsible for around 400,000 deaths in the USA each year, vaping has been linked to fewer than 10 death since it was invented, but Republicans are trying to ban vaping.
  • Crissy Teigen makes Trump look like a PresidentPussyAssBitch on Twitter.
  • UK judges have rules that Boris Johnson's Parliament shut down is illegal, but it appears to continue anyway because Conservatives never abide by laws that are inconvenient. Also, Theresa May's xenophobic law which kicked foreign students out of the UK shortly after graduating has been reversed.

Meet the Christian church in California that was busted by the FBI for kidnapping homeless people and turned them into slaves.

The lies Muslims tell ex-Muslims when they try and re-convert them. No surprise, they're very similar to the lies Christians tell ex-Christians.

I beat the Master System port of Mickey's Ultimate Challenge. Terrible game!

  • Trump promised Mexico would pay for his useless border wall, and now he stealing the money from the US military and US disaster relief.
  • Another one bites the dust! Trump's unqualified pro-war anti-foreigner National Security Advisor, Republican John Bolton, is out of the White House. Bolton says he offered his resignation because Trump is so difficult to work with, while Trump claims he fired Bolton for not agreeing with him enough. The departure is especially embarrassing for Republicans who now have to find a -fourth- replacement for yet another job that won't get done.
  • Remember when Trump stupidly claimed that Alabama was going to be hit by Hurricane Dorian, and then wouldn't admit he made a mistake, and then Republicans threatened to fire anyone who said he was wrong? And now he's going full-on nationalist and refusing to help Bahamian hurricane victims calling them very bad gang members and drug dealers. Yeah, that's how he is all the time.
  • The only reason we know that Russia attempted to hack Florida voting machines just prior to the 2016 presidential election is because of a US veteran and military translator, Reality Winner. Republicans were trying their best to keep the Russian digital invasion a secret in order to protect Trump, but Winner heroically and selflessly acted as a whistle-blower to make the Republican cover-up known to all. Sadly, Winner has just sentenced to over 5 years in prison for her brave deeds.
  • Benjamin Netanyahu, is seeking reelection as the Prime Minister of Israel, and he made the extremely shocking claim to invade and conquer large sections of Palestine with the cooperation of Trump and the US military!
  • Under Republican control, the EPA has stopped enforcing rules that protect children against lead paint.
  • Republican Kerry Roberts thinks America's problems can be solved by simply banning colleges and universities.
  • The UK government failed to allow Boris Johnson a new vote and it is now officially shut down for over a month. Their Parliament is protesting, and now Johnson either has to go back to the EU with his tail between his legs and beg for more time or do something drastic to get a no deal exit which would be a serious blow to the UK. So, just like in the USA, the ultra-conservative party is hell-bent on ruining everything because they really hate foreigners.

Over the weekend I took out a ground wasp nest and beat the Master System port of Castle of Illusion. I've also greatly updated my list of candies.

  • US military intelligence had to extract one of our highest-ranking spies out of Russia in part because they believed Trump's reckless blabbering of top secret information to the public, and especially to Russian diplomats, would get him discovered and tortured to death. The spy is now safely out of Russia, but the US has lost one of its most important informants into their regime, all because Trump can't keep his fat mouth shut!
  • The Republican White House is so openly corrupt right now that companies aren't even trying to hide the fact that they're willing to donate to Trump in order to eliminate keep safety watchdogs at bay.
  • After enough people complained about Trump's obvious corruption with using the position of President to traffic business to his hotels, even when they're 180 miles away from the intended destination, the Air Force is performing a review. Nothing will happen because of it, but it's nice to see the illusion of accountability.
  • Trump is even forcing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to agree with his bonehead Alabama hurricane mistake.
  • No matter how much Republicans deny it, climate change is a serious threat, and only the Democrats seem prepared to address it. Meanwhile, the Amazon burns.
  • The bright future for those who have been forced to resigned from Trump's regime.

Better check your crystal ball again!

Last night I beat both the Game Gear and Master System ports of Aladdin. I also created a page for the Game Gear.

  • Trump just can't let it go and continues to lie about hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama.
  • Like rats leaving a sinking ship.
  • Republican Mike Pence, staunch LGBT hater, and US Vice President, went to Iceland where the people greeting him with a whole bunch of gay-pride flags!
  • If universal background checks were enforced, the Texas shooter wouldn't have been able to buy his gun.
  • It's nice to see the UK is fighting back against their ultra-Conservative leader. Let's just hope he doesn't ruin the country on his way to the bottom.

Drew Brees explains that he doesn't hate LGBT people shortly after staring in a commercial for a Christian hate group that actively abuses LGBT people.

I added a page for the secular humanist perspective on death.

  • After looking like a complete imbecile once again, by endless lying about never hearing about a category five hurricane, and assuring America that Dorian will hit Alabama. Trump could have simply said, "oops my mistake," but, he chose the path of the psychopath and added his own projection to a map to include Alabama!
  • Republicans once again tried to take away the press pass of a journalist, and a federal judge once again said what they did was illegal.
  • Republican Joe Balash used his government position to push for more Arctic oil drilling. Immediately after resigning, he was hired by an Arctic oil drilling company. It's almost as if Republicans are selling out their country.
  • After is came out that lenders were using predatory tactics to trick students into loans they could never hope to pay back, Congress created the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. However, since those in charge are the same people who own these predatory lenders, people like Republican Betsy DeVos, they're doing everything in their power to ruin the program including denying loan forgiveness to 99% of the applicants!
  • Ultra-Conservative Boris Johnson is messing up the UK government so badly, his own brother has resigned!

I also beat the Game Boy Color game Babe and Friends and added a category for video game tie-ins.

  • The US military has far too much money anyway, but at least they could have used it for something like taking care of soldiers, but, no, Republicans collaborated to take $3,600,000,000 from them to waste on a border wall.
  • The inverted yield curve has predicted an impending recession accurately for every recession in the last 50 years, and, with Trump destroying the economy, it's no surprise we're seeing one now. But what exactly is an inverted yield curve?
  • A UK judge tells the UK Conservative party, you can't just shut down the government to get what you want. If only American judges had the gumption to do the same thing!
  • Full Frontal's recap on climate change and the Republicans who refuse to even acknowledge the existence of scientists.
  • Trump once again disagrees with an entire field of science by claiming he knows more about hurricanes than all meteorologists.

Over the weekend I beat the Game Boy game Double Dragon II.

  • Trump once again inadvertently revealed top secret US military secrets to the entire world. This time, he posted images from a secret US surveillance satellite, one that the US public is not supposed to know anything about, and certainly US adversaries aren't supposed to know anything about, but now they know a great deal!
  • There was yet another mass shooting. No, not the 17-year-old who injured 10 people when he opened fire at an Alabama football game, not the 14-year-old boy who murdered all five members of his family. No, I'm referring to the Texan who injured 22 people and killed seven more, including a toddler who he shot in the face. Texas Republicans responded by voting to weakening eight different gun control laws. Republican Matt Schaefer, who religiously opposes any form of gun control, even preventing violent criminals from having guns, blames the shooting on a lack of thoughts and prayers.
  • Republicans are so openly-corrupt, they're going well out of their way to stay at Trump's hotels in order to make him money at the taxpayer's expense.
  • Randy Rainbow sings Cheeto Christ Stupid-Czar.
  • Part of me is happy to see the UK continue to crash and burn over Brexit because it means the US isn't the only country with ignorant bigots, but then I remember that two collapsing super powers isn't exactly a good thing for global stability.
