Want to cut federal dollars off? Fine, go right ahead. But turnabout is fair play. We’ll just cut off all those taxes we pay into the Federal Government to support those idiots in welfare Rural Red States. California pays out way more in Federal taxes than we take in. Long story short: You and those idiots in Mississippi, Alabama, West Virginia, Kentucky etc., need us a helluva lot more than we need your money grubbing asses.

If you’ve been on this FACEBOOK PAGE, you already know that I believe if you voted for Trump you are enormously stupid, or hugely bigoted but more than likely you’re both.
You no more thought he was going to change things in Washington or “Drain The Swamp” than I did. But you had that White Supremacy Homophobic Racist Misogynistic Vibe going on. And any woman who voted for this vile piece of crap must either have an awfully low opinion of her self or believes a woman’s place is to always live as an inferior entity to whatever man they happen to be with at any given time. The worst of the lot? Evangelicals, who proved once again that all that holier than thou bible thumping was nothing more than hypocritical horse manure.
So you needed an excuse to hide behind and draining the swamp sure sounded catchy….if your thinking process goes no higher than the second grade.
But you weren’t fooling me.
I don’t know what made you pea brained nit-wits think that Trump was going to lift a finger to help your sorry asses, but here we are three weeks later and the only thing he’s done is set in motion a government by the rich assholes, for the rich assholes, and of the rich assholes. But hey, he can stir up the hate of Muslims and Refugees so that you completely ignore the fact that just as he’s done all his life, Trump is going to step on you gullible twerps while using the White House to enrich himself and his buddies. Mostly himself. I mean, couldn’t you stop for one second to discover, “Hey wait a minute, this jerk’s never done anything patriotic in his whole goddamn life, so why would he start now?”
And so it goes. One of the few agencies left in this country to protect consumer rights will soon be nothing but a puff of smoke, blown away by the endless greed of the GOP. I’ll give the Repugnicans one thing, they sure are Artful Dodgers at playing the stupidity card for millions of people by keeping them preoccupied with nothing but fear and hate.
The Washington Post:
A Republican plan to dismantle Wall Street regulations would strip the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau of many of its powers, including eliminating its consumer complaint database and scaling back its enforcement abilities, according to a five-page memo distributed by Rep. Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the powerful House Financial Services Committee.
The memo obtained by The Washington Post offers the first peek into Republican plans to ease regulations big banks have been subject to since 2010's Dodd-Frank Act. Sent to other members of the Financial Services Committee on Monday, it outlines changes to legislation Hensarling (R-Tex.) initially proposed last year, known as the Financial Choice Act. That version of the legislation was immediately denounced by advocacy groups; it is now being revised in light of President Trump's call for sweeping changes to the way the financial system is regulated.
The original proposal gave large banks a way to avoid new regulations by holding significantly more capital. It also eliminated the “Volcker Rule,” which prevents banks from using their own money to make risky bets. Those provisions appear to survive in the new version of the legislation, which is slated to be released later this month.
A spokesman for Hensarling did not immediately return a call for comment.
Hensarling appears poised to go even further in attempting to weaken the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which has been under fire from Republicans for years. The agency's rulemaking authority and enforcement powers would be limited, according to the memo, which also calls for an “elimination of consumer education functions.”
Drain the swamp indeed.
Anybody who predicted the death of Derrick “McDreamy” Shepherd would be the end of Grey's Anatomy should stay out of Vegas. It's just been renewed again for the 2017 – 2018 season. I have two loyal viewers in my household, but I'm not one of them. At least not now.
I remember tuning into the premiere episode back in early 2005. Who knew the doctors in Seattle would still be chugging along for thirteen plus seasons?
It seems nothing can kill this show. The death of Lexie Grey and Mark Sloan (which is when I parted company with the proceedings), the death of George O'Malley, the aforementioned Derek, saying adios to Callie Torres, or the departure of long time favorite Christina Yang has done nothing to deter its loyal audience.
And two shows I’ve never paid much attention to, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder will be right there alongside Meredith, Alex, and the whole shebang.
From Hollywood Reporter:
“Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder continue to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. I’m thrilled to bring back these shows and the OMG moments that come with them,” Dungey said of the early pickups.
Grey's, starring Ellen Pompeo, ranks as ABC's No. 1 show among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, an impressive feat for a show in its 13th season. It's also a top 10 series in the demo and the No. 3 drama on all of broadcast. Its midseason return on Jan. 26 marked its most-watched telecast since September 2014. With the renewal, Grey's ties Ozzie and Harriet as the longest-running scripted series, seasons-wise, on ABC.
Scandal, starring Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn, was bumped to midseason to accommodate star Washington's second pregnancy. Rhimes has noted that the series will likely feature a reduced episode order as the drama likely heads toward its endgame. The prolific producer has also noted that Scandal isn't a show that will have the same longevity as a show like Grey's given the rate in which it burns through plot. (Scandalscripts are 20 pages longer than the typical drama.) The series will mark its 100th episode this season and Dungey told THR in January that they've talked about an endgame. "It's really going to be up to Shonda because she's the person who really knows where she wants the story to go and where it will play out. I have always said that I will take as much Scandal as she will give me. We are in a universe where she's comfortable with slightly shorter seasons but my plan is Scandal is back next year and after that, it'll be a conversation that we'll have to have."
Now if Shonda can find a way to bring back Mark, Lexie, or George from the dead, I may just tune into see that mess. Heck, bring Izzy back. It doesn’t matter squat to me that Shonda still carries a personal grudge. Get the fuck over it.

Can't think of anything to say except that it's Kentucky, where they breed classy thoroughbred horses and hire pure bred Racist Horses Asses as deputies.
From Raw Story:
Local news station WSAZ reports that a Boyd County deputy sheriff came under fire last month for posting a message on his personal Facebook page that read, “That Muslim holler monkey has been evicted… now he and his shemale need to get gone!”
Boyd County Sheriff Bobby Woods announced this week that the deputy had been suspended for 24 days without pay for writing the post, which his office claims is “the maximum disciplinary action allowed by policy.”
It is not clear whether the deputy intended for the post to be about former President Barack Obama leaving the White House. The post was written in late January, however, and it did use slurs commonly used against both former President Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama.
It is not clear that the post was about President Obama and The First Lady? Way to try not to piss off the Trump Monkeys, WSAZ. Who the hell do you think this guy was talking about?
Here’s another question? What did this guy do to deserve anonymity? He’s not a juvenile, but I read three different articles and none mention his name. The sheriff says he’s suspended 24 days without pay, and then let racists bygones be bygones (see video) He made his bed, he should lay in the aftermath instead of being (as someone eloquently referred to President Trumpanzee earlier today) a cowardly shit-gibbon.
