'Hungry people cannot be good at learning or producing anything, except perhaps violence.' --Pearl S Buck




In yet another example of the weird-ass confluence between food and politics in the current campaign season, the Youngstown, Ohio soup kitchen where Paul Ryan staged a photo-op by washing clean pans is now facing an angry wave of cancelled donations, maybe! Nothing supports the GOP stance of letting private charity take the place of government programs like starving some homelesses out of bungled-photo-op spite. Or maybe it's receiving a surge of generous private donation fom libruls who want Big Government to provide everything to the Poors? Or some of each? As you recall, the St. Vincent DePaul Society's president, Brian J. Antal, objected after the Ryan team “ramrodded their way" into the kitchen after it had already finished serving local Poors their gruel for the day, saying that the empty gesture never should have been allowed. As a result, Romney/Ryan supporters have withheld donations from the Catholic charity and flooded it with angry phone calls. God told them to, we are quite sure.

Says Antal,

"It appears to be a substantial amount," Antal said. "You can rest assured there has been a substantial backlash." Antal says he can't give an actual dollar amount. "I can't say how much [in] donations we lost," he said. "Donations are a private matter with our organization."

HuffPo's Jason Cherkis also reports that Antal and the charity's volunteers have had to field "hundreds of angry phone calls," and that their Facebook page had mean comments posted to it, like

"I hope you lose your tax emempt[sic] status," "Anyone who is thinking about donations to you should think twice" and "Shame on you Brian Antal!"

There is rudeness on the internet? Egad! After the HuffPo story broke, the overwhelming majority of recent messages on the page have been from libruls promising to support the soup kitchen, which is nice, we suppose; the whole fuck-tussle mirrors the backlash and counter-backlash of online consumer reviews of the pizzeria whose owner hugged a black man -- with most of the "reviews" coming from people who'd never been to the restaurant, of course.

Seriously, kids, are Americans now so fat they only want to vote with their mouths?

One of the most common things to say in America, just behind "Happy Birthday" and "NO COLLUSION," is "Mitch McConnell should go fuck himself." It works for all occasions, whether you have just stubbed your toe or whether you are in the middle of your wedding to your sweetheart. Try it!

But why should Mitch McConnell go fuck himself at this particular moment? Let's look at the top three current reasons!

Sucks to be you, Pat Shanahan! The acting Defense secretary is currently under investigation for preferential treatment of his former bosses at Boeing, who just got busted letting planes fall out of the sky if buyers skimped on the upgrades. Shanahan was never a favorite of Trump's, and now his chances of getting made Big Boy For Real Sec Def are decreasing by the day. Which means that he's going through all this shit for nothing! Womp womp!

What shit, you ask? Well! Last night Shanahan announced the first tranche of the "found" money the DoD is shifting over to fund WALL in defiance of Congress's constitutional spending powers. The Defense Department will be transferring the cash from accounts meant to support military personnel into "anti-drug funding," which they've decided means they can use it to build "18-foot-high pedestrian fencing, constructing and improving roads, and installing lighting within the Yuma and El Paso Sectors of the border." Already pissed off about the fake EMERGY declaration, although not pissed enough to override a veto, congresspeople on both sides of the aisle are hopping mad that the Trump administration dicked them around for months, shut down the government, forced them to negotiate for wall funding in good faith, and then said HA HA SUCKERS, WE'RE JUST GOING TO STEAL IT FROM THE RAINY DAY FUND ANYWAY!
