Gotta love the fact that this is the consensus and we aren't even half way to the inaugurination yet.

What is amazing to me is that I reviewed my finances with my accountant a few days ago and he says Rump will be the best thing to ever happen to my pocket book. I left thinking OK, sure, I’ll have some extra cash but what good is it if the environment goes to shit?

Yeah, feels like the heady days of 2007.

I was thinking about the climate change deniers getting high-level positions and realized that there are 3 possibilities:

1. Climate change is not real -- if this turns out to be true (I'm definitely NOT claiming it is) then what we get is more pollution, strip mining, deforestation, destruction of wilderness areas, etc. Basically, long-term problems and lower quality of life in exchange for short-term gains.

2. Climate change is real but humans aren't a significant role -- in this case the major problems won't come any faster but we also won't be doing anything to prepare for them or even potentially stave them off.

3. Climate change is real and humans are playing a significant role in it -- if this is the case then we speed up the process and make things much worse much quicker with potentially disastrous and irrevocable consequences.


The saddest part is that #1 is the best possible avenue and the least likely. #3 is the worst case and may be the most likely. None of the options are good. We are truly fucked.

Well to be perfectly honest, if the here and now is all that's left, a few extra bucks will be handy to hire the string quartet to keep playing while the whole thing descends into the abyss...

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Trump Names Carl Icahn as Adviser on Regulatory Overhaul

Another multi-billionaire, but at least this one was announced well in advance on the campaign trail.

RE: Trump’s cabinet in the White House
Everyone who voted Trump for his 'drain the swamp' bullshit need a serious reality check. He's not draining anything, he's adding harbor mines, piranhas, and frickin' laser sharks.

I propose lining up all of those voters, having them collectively bend over and drop trousers, and proceeding to let Trump's cabinet members perform TSA-grade cavity searches (without lube) on that entire part of the electorate. If only so they never forget the fucking they're about to receive.

Also they should be shown the remaining 1% voters, who will benefit from Trump's presidency, doing hookers and blow; just to drive home who the 'have' and 'have nots' really are.

Scott Pruitt, longtime adversary of EPA, confirmed to lead the agency into Oblivion (italics mine)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/ener...3a5b8f171d

“Pruitt has sued the EPA more than a dozen times during the Obama administration, challenging the agency’s authority to regulate toxic mercury pollution, smog, carbon emissions from power plants and the quality of wetlands and other waters."

“More than 700 former EPA officials recently wrote to Congress opposing Pruitt’s confirmation, saying he “has gone to disturbing lengths to advance the views and interests of business.”
