Just Another Barstool Hit-Piece

Yeah, gotcha with a nice piece of eye candy...

Barstool Sports' newly demoted, former Editor In Chief loves to brag about the hits and pageviews he racked up. Easy thing to do when you post "the Smoke-Show of the Day," twice a day KMarko. I know the book on eye candy drawing traffic Keith. I wrote that bitch back in 2007.

I don't like Barstool's KMarko because he's a douchebag. Also, for years he blew me off. I won't deny it, while I was co-owner/operator and writer at I had applied to Barstool a few times. I knew I was no journalist but wanted to get wider readership of my shit. I drew good numbers at YGS as well as when I was at the Sporting News Blogging Community. But he blew me off. I even submitted for a writing gig again in the last year. Heard nothing. I started tweeting posts at Barstool staff to try and get it in front of their eyes and maybe get lucky. Does this sound bitter? It sounds bitter. 

Yeah, it bummed me out. One of the reasons is because I feel the crap I write is better than most of the stuff they post there now. You see Barstool's best writers, don't write that often anymore. They have followed the times and do more video content, radio (Sirius/XM) and podcasts. I don't blame them, they have some of the best podcasts out there. KFC Radio, Zero Blog Thirty, Pardon My Take, The Token CEO, They're all excellent. Call Her Daddy kills it too, it's not really my thing, but I respect it. 

Barstool has expanded and dabbles in so many worlds now. In the early days it was blogs about sports, shit talking, maybe some wacky shit that happened in the news and tits and ass. Now they have radio, podcasts, people playing video games on Twitch, multiple gambling shows, a gambling app. They have a show now completely about "The Bachelor"...You can watch Barstool staff watch "The Bachelor" and then do a show about it afterwards. WTF!?!

I never expected Barstool to stay what it was, but I hate that the blogging is an after thought. Some people still like to read and use their brain as opposed to listening/watching a podcast pontificate or you know, watch people watch TV. I don't call myself a "Stoolie" and don't get on reddit and don't run my day around Barstool content. (yes there are people that do that) 

I have some merch, from the specific shows I support like KFC, ZBT and PMT...I use to check the site at least once a day. I use to watch Dave Portnoy's Pizza reviews. I don't anymore. I use to like his douchey "brick by brick," man of the people schtick. But now it's become I'm a rich douchebag schtick. Portnoy is the man that created Barstool and he really did build it "brick by brick" and worked his ass off for everything for years. I respect that. But he just seems like a douchebag now.

My growing dislike started before his Trump interview, but that pushed it over the top. Portnoy has always prided himself on Barstool not getting into politics and made it clear to the company that those are waters he did not want them going into. So much so, that Big Cat (Dan Katz, One of the top dogs there) turned down having Joe Biden on his show Pardon My Take. Then behind his back, going against what he's always said Portnoy does an Interview with Trump. 

Let's be clear, this "interview" was a campaign ad to try and grab some younger voters. It was exactly the type of interview Trump loves. No "tough questions" like 60 Minutes. Why the hell would the President of the United States have to answer tough questions?

If you missed it, I give you a quick recap. Portnoy kissed Trump's ass, then started stroking himself...Trump replied by stroking himself, then stroking Portnoy...Portnoy tongued Trump's balls while stroking him, then stroked himself some more...Trump replied by stroking himself while fingering Portnoy's ass...Eventually they blew each other, Trump finished and Portnoy had to finish himself off.

Portnoy defended himself talking about how no one would turn down interviewing the President. He acted as if he didn't toss up softballs. He didn't like the criticism that he did no follow-up questions, trying to fall back on while they are a huge media company, they aren't journalists...He denied that this was all purely a campaign ad.

This whole thing pissed me off. I now ignore all Portnoy content. Like I said it was getting annoyingly douchey anyway. But I find myself checking out less and less Barstool content, outside of KFC, ZBT and PMT. 


I often didn't use the Barstool site to checkout some content because I'd be checking it out the next day or hours later. It was easier to find on their YouTube page. Example, The Barstool Rundown. Now, with all Barstool content on YouTube, I am getting hit with Trump ads. this isn't some dumb-ass YouTube algorithm. I've been signed-in to my YouTube account for 15 years. If they had an algorithm they were gearing towards me it would be all ads with sexy women in stockings, beer, chef knives and guitars. When Portnoy did that "Interview" with Trump, Barstool got into bed with the Trump campaign. 

I can't and won't support something or someone who supports a criminal fuck like Trump, who has now let 230,000 Americans die because of his lies. And that number keeps growing every day.

Monday Moaning 10-26-20


Have I got your attention?

How about now? Good...

One of the great things about social media is communicating with people from other places...Not just me in Pennsylvania shooting the shit with a friend in Texas...But seeing other cultures and news from around the world...Lets be honest, our media cover the United States first and foremost...It has to be something massive, or epically tragic for them to to look past oceans...And we all know #1 thing covered here is politics...It's not news anymore, it's fucking reality TV....

We are so wrapped up in our side and our country and what's going on here, we are clueless that much of the world is also at it's breaking point...Yes, there is nothing wrong with carrying about our country...I am in no way going to stop screaming about Trump and I am not going to stop fighting for equality for all in this country...But I'll be honest, I had no idea what was going on all over the world...I knew bits and pieces, but had no idea how big it was until a post from a you woman in Poland...

These are pics from just outside her apartment...

Every night there are protests in the streets...Protests against the government...Because of her post I started looking at what's going on...There is madness is so many places....Frustration and disenfranchised people everywhere...JUST LOOK...

All those dots are places with active protests...All of these protests are political protests...The main reasons are, policy, economic and corruption...Sounds frighteningly familiar...

Here in the United States it’s nuts and there's lots of division...But people are trying to unite us and open the eyes of others who don’t get it...And clearly people around the world are trying to do this...

COVID has only made it worse, but if we can get people to think not just of themselves, but everyone...not just in individual countries either...we are all on this same planet together and my actions don’t just impact my neighborhood, city, state, country...They impact your country, and Canada, Australia, England, Poland, Mexico, Japan, Italy, Brazil, France and so on...I believe we, as a world will battle through these times and come out of it with a better world...We will have sadly lost too many fellow humans, but a brighter future will honor them...

We sure as shit know Trump won't...What did he say about those dead from COVID? Oh, that's right, "It is what it is"...#WakeUpAmerica

Keep fighting world.

So, You want to Talk About Socialism


A now former “friend” posted some dumb shit on Facebook...A video of some crooked Republican politician, preaching the word about how evil socialism is...And if "we allow these liberals to be elected, they are going to take us into their socialist utopia, that will kill America."....I'm not sharing this dumb fucks video...fuck him, not giving him the pageviews...This now former friend by the way, has a a job, that is 100% paid for by taxpayers...

So you want to talk about the evils of socialism...funny since tax dollars pay your salary and insurance, and your retirement...let’s talk socialism...
Socialism is taxpayer funds being used collectively to benefit society as a whole, despite income, contribution or ability....
Socialism, which we are often told to fear, is responsible for all this...

1. The Military/Defense - The United States military is the largest and most funded socialist program in the world. It operates thanks to our taxpayer dollars and protects the country as a whole. From the richest citizens to the homeless who sleep under the bridge. We are all protected by our military whether we pay taxes or not. This is complete socialism.
2. Highways/Roads - Those roads and highways you drive on every single day are completely taxpayer funded. Your tax dollars are used to maintain, expand, and preserve our highways and roads for every one's use. President Eisenhower was inspired by Germany's autobahn and implemented the idea right here in America. That's right, a republican president created our taxpayer funded, national highway system. This was a different time, before the republican party came down with a vicious case of rabies that never went away.
3. Public Libraries - Yes. That place where you go to check out books from conservative authors telling you how horrible socialism is, is in fact socialism. Libraries are taxpayer funded. You pay a few bucks to get a library card and you can read books for free for the rest of your life.
4. Police - Ever had a situation where you had to call the police? Then you have used a taxpayer funded socialist program. Anyone can call the police whether they pay taxes or not. They are there to protect and serve the community, not individuals. This is complete socialism on a state level, but still socialism all the same. Would you rather have to swipe your credit card before the police will help you?
5. Fire Dept.- Hopefully you have never had a fire in your home. But if you have, you probably called your local taxpayer-funded fire department to put the fire out. Like police, this is state socialism. You tax dollars are used to rescue your entire community in case of a fire. It use to be set up where you would pay a fee every month to the fire dept. for their service. If you didn't pay, they let your house burn down. Sadly, a man from Tennessee had this exact situation happen to him in 2011 because he didn't pay his $75.00 fee. I guess that small town in Tennessee would rather let people's houses burn down that resort to evil socialism. So don't take for granted the fact that you have a 24/7 fire dept. to put out your burning home thanks to socialism.
6. Postal Service - Like having mail delivered directly to your front door and paying next to nothing to send mail anywhere you want? Well it's all made possible by socialism.
7. Student Loans and Grants - Did you go to College? If you did, you family might not have been rich enough to pay your way through. So you got your education anyway through student loans and grants from the federal government at taxpayer expense. Of course you have to pay back the loans, but if not the government, did you know anyone else who was going to lend you tens of thousands of dollars? Probably not. So the taxpayers lent you the money and you paid it back with slight interest. The government grants you accepted were gifts from the taxpayer and the federal government that you did not have to pay back. Socialism got you through school.
8. Bridges - Along with our highways, our government used your taxpayer dollars to build bridges. This allows the public to travel across rivers without having to sail or swim.
9. Garbage Collection - Like having your garbage collected once a week instead of having to drive it to the landfill yourself? Thank socialism.
10. Public Landfills - Taxpayer dollars are used to have places to dump all of our garbage that is collected by taxpayer funded garbage men.
11. War - That's right! War would not be possible without socialism. Your tax dollars are used to fight wars for your country. This is Big Government at it's biggest. Private companies don't attack other countries, at least not yet. Government is the only entity in America that can defend us from foreign enemies and our tax dollars are used for every second of it. Socialism has brought down Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and Bin Laden. War may very well be the most socialist thing on this list.
12. Farm Subsidies - Our government uses taxpayer funds to pay farmers and businesses to provide their income and keep them growing food for the public.
13. CIA - The Central Intelligence Agency is vital to America's security. The CIA is completely taxpayer funded to protect the public from enemies.
14. FBI - The Federal bureau of investigations is a taxpayer funded government agency.
15. Congressional Health Care - As Republicans in congress warn us of the evils of government-run health care, most of them are covered by taxpayer-funded government-run health care. You literally pay for their health care while they tell you that paying for your neighbors health care through a public option or single-payer system is socialism. They are 100% correct, it is socialism. They're just not telling you that they like their socialist health care, they just don't think you should have it. They are afraid you might like it better than the private insurance you have now that funds their campaigns and gives them money to push what is best for them and not for you. Members of congress are free to opt out of their evil government health care, but most of them don't because deep down, they like socialism too.
16. Polio Vaccine - In the 1950's polio ravaged the United States. Until Dr. Jonas Salk invented a cure, finally ridding America of this terrible disease. Dr. Salk could have sold his vaccine in the free market and made millions and millions of dollars. Instead he gave it to the federal government to begin eradicating polio. He said that he made plenty of money as a scientist and felt it was too important to try and profit from or create a business around.
17. EPA - Republicans hate this taxpayer-funded government program because they have the nerve to tell corporations that they may have to follow environmental rules ad regulations for the greater good of the earth and the people who live on it. But if you don't like breathing mercury, drinking dirty water, and breathing in chemicals, you should like this example of socialism working for the people.
18. Social Security - You pay a tax to help ensure that our grandparents and senior citizens of America have money to live off of when they are retired or too elderly to work. I love hearing rich people bitch about this one because the truth is that they do not pay a social security tax, like most payroll taxes. This little piece of socialism helps prevent our senior citizens from sinking into poverty and starving to death.
19. Museums - Many museums are privately owned by organizations and groups, but many are also taxpayer-funded state, national, and federal museums.
20. Public Schools - Can't afford to send your children to an expensive private school? Thanks to socialism and government, you child can still get an education. Public education has been under attack for decades in this country by the radical right because public schools don't teach Christianity to your children and it enables people like Barack Obama to work hard, gain scholarships, and eventually become President of the United States.
21. Jail/Prison System - Many murders and criminals are behind bars right now and not out on the streets because of our taxpayer-funded, federal and state run jails and prisons. Taxpayer money is collected and used to help protect all of society from murders, molesters, rapist, etc. I know there's a lot of disagreement and controversy about how to handle our prison system, but I think we can all agree that serial killers should not be freed into society. There are also many private prisons in the United States. However, they have a higher escape rate than their socialist counterpart. Besides, don't you see the bad incentives in having a private prison system that profits from having people in prison? Since a business's top goal is to make more money than the year before, the only feasible agenda would be to get everyone in prison.

22. Corporate/Business Subsidies - This is the type of socialism that is acceptable in the Republican party. You tax dollars are given to big corporations to do things they should be doing anyway out of morals and ethics. Like not sending jobs overseas and hiring people. Wouldn't you like a nice big check just for not breaking the law? To be fair though, many businesses do earn their subsidies by advancing green technology and practice, donating to charity, helping communities, etc. They aren't all bad. People just get mad when big billionaire oil companies get billions of their taxpayer dollars while they're paying $4 at the pump. For the corporations that don't earn their subsidies other than donating to their very own political party, it's merely welfare. Though however you look at it, it is socialism.

23. Veteran's (VA) Health Care - Our soldiers bravely go to foreign countries and risk their lives at the request of their government and the American people. For those who survive, we as a country feel committed and obligated to ensure that they have everything they need for the rest of their lives for their service to us in which we could never fully repay. So we the taxpayers fund their health care in a government-run single-payer system for veterans. Many soldiers return with mental and/or physical health issues that would cost them thousands in a private health care plan. Socialism funds the military, the overall war, and also takes care of our troops when they return home.
24. Public Parks - Like going to the park on a sunny day? Just being able to walk right in, or at the worse pay a small fee? This is once again the work of socialism. If it were private, it wouldn't be a park, it would be someone's back yard. That small or non-existent fee will turn into a $15 fee faster than you can say "No Trespassing".
25. All Elected Government Officials - From the Supreme Court, to the President of the United States and all the way down to the County Dog Catcher, taxpayers pay their salary and provide the funding for them to do their job. We pay for every aspect of their job. So in a sense, I guess you could say our whole country is run on socialism.
26. Food Stamps - Republicans fill with bitter contempt knowing that our government at the expense of the taxpayer is giving poor people money to buy food they couldn't otherwise afford. This, like welfare, is what the right thinks socialism is all about, along with mass murder. However, just like corporate welfare, welfare is socialism. I'll just end this one with a quick story. I have been down and out in periods of my life and sought assistance via food stamps. Even though I was what anyone would consider poor, I was not poor enough to get food stamps. Which means people who do get them, must really, really need them. As far as my personal experience, they weren't thrown around like candy the way the right would have you believe.
27. Sewer System - Do you like having a sewer system to remove waste and prevent pollution and disease from seeping into our environment? Thank the taxpayers of America and the socialist system it operates in.
28. Medicare - Medicare is one of the most liked socialist programs in America. Most of us don't mind paying taxes to provide our senior citizens with health care and hope the next generation will do the same for us. If you don't believe me, just look at almost any poll. Most seniors would not be able to afford private health care. So this form of socialism is a life saver for this nation's grandparents and senior citizens.
29. Court System - Whether it's the murder trial of the century or a case in a small claims court, the taxpayers of America fully fund our courts and legal process. You may pay for your own lawyer, but the courtroom, judge, and jury is paid for through socialist means.
30. Bird Flu Vaccine - You don't have bird flu right now and probably aren't worried about it because our federal government used taxpayer funds to pump vaccines all over America.
31. G.I. Bill - The G.I. bill allows veterans to pursue an education by using taxpayer dollars to help them pay for most of their schooling. It also helps them with loans, savings, and unemployment benefits.
32. Hoover Dam - Remember when our country use to build things? Our government built the Hoover Dam using taxpayer funds. It is now a vital source of power for the west coast.
33. State/City Zoos - American families have been going to the zoo for generations. A place where kids and adults can have fun seeing creatures and animals from all over the world and learn at the same time. Many zoos are ran by the state and/or city, using taxpayer funds to operate and even bring the animals to the zoo.
34. IRS - I know, the IRS is about as popular and well liked in America as a hemorrhoid, but think about it. The IRS is the reason that we have anything. The IRS collects taxpayer funds for the federal government. The government then dispenses these funds to our military, states, and social programs. If there is no one collecting taxes, no one will pay them. If no one pays taxes, our country shuts down. Without money to operate, nothing operates. This may sound like a good thing to some radical republicans, but for those of us with sense, we know this means anarchy in the USA. The IRS gets a bad rap because if you don't pay your taxes or owe them money, they can be ruthless. Like everything else, the IRS is not perfect, but without them we literally have no country or no means to run it.
35. Free Lunch Program - Some children are living in poverty by no fault of their own. I'm not saying it is even their parents fault, but you surely cannot blame a child for the situation they are born into. In most if not all states, there are programs where children who live in poor households can receive school lunch for free. The taxpayers of the state pay for this. Sounds like socialism to me, and also the moral and Christian thing to do.
36. The Pentagon - Our defense system in America is a socialist system from top to bottom. We as taxpayers fund the pentagon completely.
37. Medicaid - Our government uses taxpayer funds to provide health care for low-income people. Republicans, the compassionate Christians that they are, absolutely hate this program. What they fail to understand is that when people can't afford to pay their outrageous medical bills, they don't. This bill does not disappear. The loss that the insurance company, doctor's office, or hospital takes gets passed down to everyone else. So covering people and giving them a low-income option reduces costs for them and everyone else. This is the main argument behind a health care mandate. It's not to force you to buy health care out of cruelty. If everyone is covered, costs drop for everyone. If you have no compassion for the uninsured, you can at least understand the rational in a selfish sense.
38. FDA - The Food and Drug Administration is far from perfect. It is infested with corporate corruption and they have been wrong many, many times. Countless times they have approved things that they later have to apologize for and have banned things that would have helped people. However, they have also stopped many harmful foods and products from being sold to the public and protect us everyday from poisons being disguised as products. While not perfect, they are needed to prevent harmful food and drugs from being sold to you and you family. Without them, corporations can send whatever they want to your supermarkets and drug stores without any testing or evaluation. I don't mind my taxes going towards a middle man to inspect the safety of the products we are being sold everyday.
39. Health Care for 9/11 Rescue Workers - After beating back GOP obstruction, Democrats finally passed a bill last year to allow government to help 9/11 rescue worker's with their health care after many came down with horrible lung diseases from the toxins they breathed in rescuing people from smoldering buildings. These brave citizens risked their lives and health to help complete strangers. They deserve more, but covering their health care is a good start.
40. Swine Flu Vaccine - Do you have swine flu right now? Then thank government and the socialist structure.
41. Disability Insurance (SSDI) - For those who are disabled and cannot work, our government provides an income for them via taxpayer dollars as opposed to the other option of letting them starve to death.
42. Town/State Run Beaches - Like going to the beach? Like it when the beach is clean and safe? Like having lifeguards on staff in case of an emergency? Then once again, thank the taxpayers and the socialist structure that makes it all possible.
43. Corporate Bailouts/Welfare - The whole point of this post is to prove that we ALL use, benefit from, and like socialism. This example is a form of socialism that the republicans not only like, but fight tooth and nail for. They don't like it when socialism is used for working/poor people, but when it's for millionaires and their corporate donors, socialism becomes as American as apple pie. The middle/working class who are the majority of taxpayers pay for welfare for corporations and people who have more money than all of us combined. When our government bails out a bank or gives a subsidy to a billion dollar corporation, you are paying for it.
44. State Construction - Ever see those construction workers in your town fixing potholes, erecting buildings, repaving highways and roads, and fixing things all over town? They themselves and the work they do is taxpayer-funded state socialism.
45. Unemployment Insurance - All your working life, you pay payroll taxes. Some of these taxes go toward a program that temporarily provides for people who lost their jobs until they can find another one. You pay for others, others pay for you. Especially these days, you never know when you might lose your job. You may need temporary assistance until you get back on your feet. The government recognizes this. UI also keeps the economy moving in times of recession because people still have some money in their pockets to buy goods and promote demand.
46. City/Metro Buses - If you lack transportation, you can catch a city bus. Taxpayer funds and the fee you pay to take the bus make it possible for millions of people to go to work.
47. WIC - WIC is a federally funded program to assist women, infants, and children. WIC helps low-income families by providing funding for nutrition, education, and health care for children.
48. State Snow Removal - Even though sometimes it may take them longer than you like to get to your street, do you like having snow plow service to clear our roads and highways in the winter? This is a state socialist taxpayer-funded service.
49. PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) - PBS operates on donations and government funding. The provide non-partisan news and information to the public. They are the home of Sesame Street, Masterpiece Theater, and The Antiques Roadshow. Surveys show that they are literally the most trusted name in news. I wonder how Fox feels about that?
50. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - The CDC helps promote and enact the health and safety of the public along with helping to prevent and control illness and disease. The CDC is a government program that operates on taxpayer funding.
51. Welfare - Is there anything the republicans hate more? Of course I'm talking about the welfare that goes to poor people. Corporate welfare is not only accepted in the republican Kabul, but it's mandatory that we give our tax dollars to billionaires and not question the logic of it. Though if you look at it realistically and not through the red scare glasses in which the right sees the world, welfare helps the economy. As I've said many times, when poor people have money in their pocket, they buy things made and sold by companies. This creates a demand. To keep up with demand, businesses must hire to keep up. If you yanked everyone who is on welfare off of it tomorrow, the economy would take a blow and lose jobs due to the down tick in consumer demand because we just took what little money they had away.

52. Public Street Lighting - Like being able to see at night when you walk or drive? Thank Socialism.
53. FEMA - If Disaster strikes, FEMA is there to help pick up the pieces. As a part of homeland security and an agency of the federal government, they use taxpayer dollars to help cities, states, and towns recover and rebuild. I don't know to many private companies that could assist in disaster relief and ask nothing in return. Thank God for socialism.

54. Public Defenders - Ever been in trouble and couldn't afford a lawyer? Well the taxpayers and the government make sure you still get representation.
55. S-CHIP (State Children's Health Insurance Program) - S-CHIP is a program that matches funds to states for health insurance for children in families that cannot afford insurance but make too much to qualify for Medicaid. Your tax dollars go towards covering uninsured children, is that so wrong?
56. Amtrak - Amtrak transports tens of millions of passengers a year in 46 states and three Canadian Providences. It is owned by the federal government and your tax dollars are used to fund it. All aboard!!
57. NPR - National Public Radio operates on private and federal funding along with public donations. NPR has been one of the most trusted news sources in America for over 40 years.
58. The Department of Homeland Security - Created after the terrorist attacks on 9/11, this heavily federally funded department of the U.S. government helps protect us from future terrorist attacks. This is the third largest department within the United States government.
59. OSHA - Do you have a safe and healthy workplace that provides training, outreach, education, and assistance? Thank OSHA! Brought to you by the taxpayers of America and socialism.
60. State and National Monuments - The Lincoln Memorial. Mount Rushmore. The D.C. National Mall. All brought to you and maintained with your tax dollars. Socialism is patriotic?
61. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) - The USDA enforces regulations on the farming, agriculture, and food industries to ensure food safety, natural resources, and hunger worldwide and in the United States. Your tax dollars are used to help keep what you are eating safe and even feed those who are not eating.
62. Government Scholarships - if you work hard in school and show true potential, our government will give you a scholarship towards college so you can advance your education. Your tax dollars have been used to send future doctors, lawyers, scientists, and even presidents of the United States to college.
63. Department of Health and Human Service - The overall goal of HHS is to promote, implement, and ensure the health of the American people. Your tax dollars are used to do this. Government looking out for the well being of it's people, imagine that!
64. Census Bureau - Every ten years, our government collects data about our people and economy, to better serve and represent us. From the forms that are sent to your home for you to fill out and send back in and to the census worker who shows up and kindly asks you to fill out the form if you don't send it in, all taxpayer funded socialism. The information collected is used to better understand the economic situation and population in your area. Not to enslave you in a FEMA camp.
65. Department of Energy - This taxpayer funded cabinet of the federal government oversees nuclear weapons, nuclear reactors, energy conservation, radioactive waste disposal, and energy production. To those of you who care about our environment and would rather not witness a nuclear holocaust might consider this money well spent.
66. Customs and Border Protection - the CBP is the largest law enforcement agency in America. This is big government that republicans actually do like because they don't like Mexicans immigrating to our country like our ancestors did. However, this taxpayer funded, socialist agency of the federal government regulates trade, imports, and immigration.
67. Department of Education - This cabinet of the federal government is actually the smallest. They administer and oversee federal assistance to education. They also collect data and enforce federal laws and regulations involving education. Even though the right thinks that this department is indoctrinating your children, they actually have no control over curriculum or standards.
68. Secret Service - Your tax dollars are used to provide highly-trained, skilled professional bodyguards to protect the President of the United States.
69. Peace Corps - The Peace Corps is a volunteer program run by the government that helps people outside of the US to understand our culture as well as helping us learn about other cultures. However they are more well known for their work with economic and social development in less-fortunate countries. Sounds very Christian for being a socialist program, huh?
70. Department of Justice - The DOJ is responsible for enforcing the law. Socialism keeps our civilization intact.
71. National Weather Service - Like knowing when a storm, tornado, earthquake, or snow is coming? Socialism makes this possible and available to everyone.
72. The White House - Our taxpayer dollars through a socialist means pays for the house that the president and his family live in during a presidents time in office.
73. Government - Like it or not, our country would not be a country without a government. Every single day, government on state and local levels serve us in ways we simply take for granted. Government as an entity operates and functions on our tax dollars through a socialist structured funding system. From the military down to the county dog catcher, socialism turns the wheels that make our society function.
74. Law - Laws and rules make our democracy possible. Remove these laws and you have sheer anarchy. Laws do not appear out of thin air. To have law, you need a government. You need elected lawmakers to make the laws and a government to implement and enforce them. Socialism is responsible for every law in this country. Without our government and lawmakers which exist thanks to socialism, there would be no laws. So the laws themselves, are enforced and implemented thanks to socialism.
75. Civilization - As an American citizen, you enjoy freedoms that many in other countries do not. Like anything else in this world, our government is not perfect, but you should be thankful everyday that your country has a government that feels an obligation to serve the people and protect their rights and freedoms. This is completely possible because of government, taxes, and socialism. Do you think the private sector would do a better job of governing our country? Do you think corporations would enact laws to help protect and serve you and your family or them and their profits?

The reason you can read this and the reason I can write it is because of the freedoms we have here in America enforced and protected through socialist means. Our entire civilization depends on us being a people united. Socialism is a glue that binds us together and makes possible the things that we could not accomplish as individuals working against each other.
I don't care who you are...
You benefit from at least one or more of these 75 American Government-Run, Taxpayer funded Socialist programs, agencies, and laws.

Hey Erie...Hey Pennsylvania...Trump Doesn't Care About Us


Trump came to town this week...They had attendees for the rally at the airport stage at the parking lot of Waldameer Park, not far from my home...Beside the idiotic Erie residents that support this orange faced, lying clown, they also has bus loads of people brought in...This has been a typical Trump campaign move going all the way back to his 2016 campaign...In typical fashion all local stations were masturbating all over this visit, while when Biden was here, only one station broke in and covered his speech....

Trump's speech was his same old song and dance, full of lies, and misinformation and hate...Yes, he pushed his racist claims about saving the suburbs...Which any adult not wearing Trump colored glasses knows, that means, 'Let's keep those Blacks out of your neighborhoods'....But besides his normal, bullshit, he also made it clear he doesn't care about Erie, PA...He just wants our votes and will go back to ignoring us regular, middle-class, (and lower) blue-collar folks as soon as he can...

Hey Erie, this is how little Trump thinks about you...
“Four or five months ago when we started this whole thing, because you know, before the plague came in, I had it made.” Trump said to the crowd in Erie, PA...
“ I wasn’t coming to Erie. I mean, I have to be honest, there was no way I was coming.”
The lunacy continued, “We had this thing won. We were so far up. We had the greatest economy ever, (lie) greatest jobs, (lie) greatest everything. (Lie) And then we got hit with the plague and I had to go back to work. Hello, Erie, may I please have your vote?”

"Had to go back to work." This fucktard thinks campaign rallies are going back to work...Listen you kid fucker, work would have been slowing down the spread of COVID...Not lying about it and letting 221,000 (and counting) Americans die from it...Work would have been getting together with bot parties and getting a real relief bill together instead of one that paid huge corporations, including some of your friends and your own businesses....Fucking Kanye is a legit billionaire and you let his criminal ass have COVID relief money...Fuck Donald Trump!

Trump didn't make America Great...He made a shithole! He didn't drain the swamp...He is the fucking swamp...
Say No! Vote home out!

Republicans, Trump and His Cult Have Ruined My Wife


It's a proven fact that my blogs get more views if I start off with some eye candy, and with the state of our country, I feel more people, especially the dolts need to be reading what I have to say...Not because I have a big ego, but because I'm right...So now that you've seen the wife, we're moving on...

If you've been here before, you know I'm a Democrat...I lean Left...A Liberal...I'm not offended or bothered by that term, the way people on the Right wish I was...Most of us aren't...My wife, she is the "Bleeding Heart Liberal" they are talking about when they try to use that as a slur as well...It's not...

The thing...Ok, one of the things I don't get about the Right, is how they always look down on the "Bleeding Heart Liberal"...And yes, I'm looking at you "Christian Conservatives"...The things you say you believe in are the the things the "Bleeding Heart Liberal" fights for...How they live their life...(Now I agree with my wife but this post is about her so...) 

My wife wants equal rights for all...Fucking EVERYBODY...All races, genders, religions, you name it she wants them all treated fairly and equally...She wants people to get paid a living wage so they can feed their family and have a roof over their head...She donates money to charities or "Go Fund Me's" when we have it...She wants to help people...She wants great education for everyone and she doesn't want everyone to be paying student loans for half their life...She doesn't want to see our government take kids from their families and lock them in cages...Nor does she want to see our government put immigrant women through forced hysterectomies...(That's some Nazi shit)

She believes in being kind and giving...All shit the "Christian Conservatives" should be agreeing with and fighting for, right by her side...I'm saying this based your "Good Book"...WARNING : going off on a side note....You religious right dummies...Trump this morning was tweeting that Joe Biden and the Left want to close all churches permanently...Hey stupid! Between these two guys, Joe Biden is the only one that goes to church every single week...Trumpy goes golfing and lines his pockets with tax payer dollars while he's overcharging for the rooms his staff and Secret Service have to use...

She believes women should have the right to choose what to do with their bodies, including getting an abortion, even though having an abortion would never cross her own mind...She believes that religion has no part in government, but you are ALL free to believe whatever hocus pocus you want...Just keep it in your place of worship, and in yourself...WARNING: Side note...I know all of you “pro-life” people must be upset that Trump took a drug made with Stem Cells...Oh, you don't follow Science...Regeneron, one of the "therapeutics" Trump has been getting treated with, that no other sick American could legally get, is made with fetal tissue...So that means you can't vote for him right, you hypocritical cunts?!?

My wife, for years has told me, when I was having a fit of rage about anything from politics, to an asshole picking on one of our kids, to some one fucking up my order at a restaurant, "Don't say that...Don't wish death on people"..."Don't wish bad things on people"...She'd tell me how I don't want that type of Karma on me...She'd say how that shit comes back on you...I would try, around her to ease up on it...Honestly, I always felt and I'm sure I wrote in a blog somewhere, that Karma is for weak minded people who just need an excuse to blame bad shit on, because they can't handle the reality that life is often a big kick in the dick...But over time, she got me to change a bit...But honestly, my rage still gets the better of me too often...


Then Trump happened...And Trump was bad enough before 2020...Then 2020 mixed with Trump...All the Trumpers, the sick fucking cult that they are...Fucking #MoscowMitch McConnell, lying, closet case, Lindsey Graham...(Yes, he pays young men for sex...There's a book coming out, unlike him!) And racists, murderous cops, be protected and defended by Republicans, Trumpers...And the White Supremacists, being openly proud, and threatening...And COVID...And the lies and misinformation spewed by the White House...And 210,000 dead Americans and counting... 

And the lies, on top of lies, on top of lies...Did I mention Trump, Kushner, Ivanka, Pence, the Idiot brothers, and Melania....

Fuck me running...

So we hit October 2020...Trump fakes getting COVID as a campaign stunt and he's playing "reality TV"...You can read my last three blogs all about that...But a switch flipped in my wife...This kind, loving, caring person, who puts everyone ahead of herself...Who tries to see the good in everyone...Who wants the best for everyone...She has had enough with Trump, his enablers and his cult...

No one would be surprised if I told you I smiled and said "I hope the lying cunt dies" when Kayleigh McEnany tested positive...No one was surprised when I wished death on Trump and his "Whore wife" in my blog, on Twitter and Facebook...But if you know my wife, you may be surprised that she has applauded and been happy as a pig in shit when all these Republican, science denying, 'COVID is like the Flu' assholes started coming down with it...

You mother fuckers are so fucking corrupt and evil...You lying mother fuckers, got one of the sweetest people in the world, hoping you all die...Maybe that's karma...They're all so fucking awful, they even have good people hoping they die and rot in the Hell they believe in...

Thanks, Trump, Trumpers, Right-wing assholes, morally bankrupt "Christian Conservatives" and the majority of the Republican party...If it wasn't bad enough my kids had a father constantly losing his shit about you assholes, now their mother is too...My wife is the greatest person in the world and you fucktards have driven her to the edge...

Actually, her rage, not aimed at me, is kinda sexy!
