“Make Our Planet Great Again”

France Trolls Trump by Funding US Climate Scientists.

Of course, the point is really to try to ensure that this planet is still habitable in a hundred years.  Infuriating the Pumpkin is just a lagniappe, as they say in the Old Country.

Meanwhile, in the USA:

This week’s Tom Tomorrow cartoon is yet another utter fail at parody.

Dan Rather is pretty steamed at how knowledge, reason and logic are all negatives in our current political climate.

When the time comes, and I hope it comes soon, to bury this era of moral rot and the defiling of our communal, social, and democratic norms, the perfect epitaph for the gravestone of this age of unreason should be Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley’s already infamous quote:

“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing… as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”

Grassley’s vision of America, quite frankly, is one I do not recognize.

Read the whole thing here.  In an environment where technical advances and their effects on society are accelerating hockey-stick style, this is suicidal.  But the Rethuglican plan seems to be to kill off the lower classes.  That’s you and me, boys and girls; read the tax bill.  So it makes a macabre kind of sense.

Taxation / Representation

The Rethuglicans literally do not care if they kill people so that someone who “earns” $50 million a year can save $50,000 on their taxes.  That’s 0.1%, by the way.

In a “fair” implementation of this principle, if you earn $80K then you would get to kill a poor person so that you could save $80 on your annual cable bill or something.

When the typical Pumpkin voter figures out that they are the ones on that conveyor belt, do you think the revolt will begin?  Or will they happily go to their deaths knowing blacks, women and immigrants were harder-hit, sooner?

 

Telling The Truth

Telling the truth is already a revolutionary act.  I know it “should” not be.  But when the daily Very White House press briefing is an exercise in a liar telling lies through a liar to propaganda organizations selected for their willingness to spread the lying liars’ lies… Truth has a big ol’ bullseye painted on its back.

Or as the Onion put it, White Guy Held Accountable For Crime.  Which is definitely news, in a Man Bites Dog way.

It’s a bad sign for the Pumpkin that this next shoe has dropped.  But the thing I keep thinking about is, what if Mueller proves the case and it’s not enough?  The absolute denial of plain facts practiced by Trumpets could be enough to steamroll right over the proof of treason Mueller will probably provide.  When that happens, it’s either time to go, or too late.
