I began this post yesterday.

And I was suddenly overcome with a sense of isolated desperation, of sadness and gloom, melancholy, a deep moroseness, and other feelings I still find difficult to articulate. Maybe it was just a case of things coming to a head, disappointments piling up, and the feeling that a new threat or attack could very well break me. It is known that I am one to indulge in tearful interludes often; I read stories, tweets, posts, and lives all day long, so I cannot help but to empathize with strangers on the web that I'll probably never meet. Yet yesterday wasn't one of those times I went looking for troubles to collect or reasons to sing the blues; I simply got my first real good look at Betsy DeVos's 2020 Education budget proposal. And I am still pissed the fuck off and ready to snatch someone bald. I cry when I'm angry too, not just when I'm sad.

Let me tell you something:

YG & Nipsey Hussle "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)" (WSHH Exclusive - Official Music Video) www.youtube.com

Let me tell you, "Fuck Donald Trump."

As the mother of an autistic child I am livid, I am horrified, I am fucking devastated. Not because I believe Nancy Pelosi will go along with this inhumane attack on the least fortunate among us, but because our nation has elected a leader so depraved, so vile, so utterly horrifying, and so EAGER to harm people he sees as beneath him, that he and his goons would steal from Special Needs and Disabled children.


I spent three hours watching that overly privileged "Frost and Glow" Stepford wife Betsy DeVos testify yesterday; and she did it without ever once saying, indicating, or appearing like she loves any children whatsoever. Who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to hire, as Secretary of Education, a woman who looks like she dog-naps Pound Puppies so she can make her boots and gloves with their skin? Only Donald fucking Trump would allow some yachty harridan to strip money from the developmentally disabled. Not only is she proposing to cut the funding for Special Olympics -- bitch has $5 billion and "donated" her "salary" to Special Olympics when she could fund the whole thing with half of one yacht -- but she also wants to cut relief for parents who have children who need care and supervision around the clock. Kids like mine.

Read it for yourself.

I'll list some of the programs the budget plans to eliminate:

Alaska Native Education- (I live in Alaska, this is insane.)
Comprehensive Literacy Development Grants (Kids don't need to know how to read. Not In New Gilead, anyway.)
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (This is ONLY for poor -- read minority -- kids.)
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (This is also ONLY for poor kids.)
Native Hawaiian Education (Notice a racial pattern yet?)
Javits Gifted and Talented Education (My youngest is in the gifted program. Awesome.)
Special Olympics Education Programs (My oldest is in the Special Needs Program and LOVES Special Olympics.)
Impact Aid Payments for Federal Property (Once again, poor kids. My GOD.)

What did that insane billionaire lady have to say for herself? The asshole woman said this:

In the case of the $17.6 million cut to help fund the Special Olympics, a program designed to help children and adults with disabilities, DeVos simply suggested it is better supported by philanthropy and added, "We had to make some difficult decisions with this budget."

You fucking *&*%@%! Difficult decisions? Honey, you don't look like you have ever found it difficult to harm a damn thing. Life is so easy for her, in fact, that she was able to reuse this dead ass explanation as many times as she wanted.

"Do you know how many kids are going to be affected by that cut?" asked U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., while also pointing out a recent report by a nonprofit group that concluded the U.S. government has spent as much as $1 billion on charter schools that never opened or closed because of mismanagement or other reasons.

Exactly, If she found the decision so difficult, why didn't she take the money from the failing Charter School con game instead of trying to pump an extra $60 million more of our money into that crapfest? Because she's there to undermine education; and how better to do that than pumping our money into ... unsupervised Charter Schools!

From WaPo:

The Education Department's office of inspector general has over the years issued reports citing problems with the program, most recently in 2016. It found that of the 33 schools it reviewed, most had conflicts of interest with the organizations managing them, known as charter management organizations (CMOs).

Now, having read that hotcatshit, let's talk about how "Fuck Trump" and "He's a fucking hypocrite POS." and also, "Fuck Mrs. Mike Pence too for good measure." Just recently, Trump and Pence were hanging out with Special Needs kids, and Mrs. Mike Pence attended the Special Olympics as our representative. Trump and Pence did it while knowing they were actively seeking to harm those very kids they posed with.

They really are nasty people

As an Alaskan, a black mother born in poverty, mom of an intellectually disabled child, and also mom of an intellectually gifted child: It truly feels like a personal attack. This administration targeted programs I have used, my children have used, my Native friends use, and that we ALL use, to keep our heads above water, and pay for our educations. It could be that they are trying to prevent any more young, poor, uppity, gifted and talented black (or POC) girls, like I was, from growing up to be successful women like I want to be. Perhaps we, women of color, have done too well for the Betsy DeVoses of the world; too many Stacey Abramses and Kamala Harrises turned out, and they want the "Old Days" back. They want the days for my children that my mother lived through; poverty, lack of food, and lack of hope ... until the school lunch program, one of the GOP's favorite targets, finally made it to her school. Education and Food. Small things to some, but for my mother, it was a life-altering experience to read and eat everyday. To know she would eat tomorrow was remarkable, to be able to access books was divine. Her children, though she was a teenage mother, never suffered that insecurity, we have never been the "invisible poor," were never sent home from school at "lunch" just to starve slowly on the streets. The Department of Education was formed the year my sister was born, in 1979. Since that time, the outlook for black women has gone from hopeless to "My name is Kamala Harris, and I'm running for President," so, just remember, fuck Betsy DeVos, and more importantly, fuck Donald Trump.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.


Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
