Bundy Inbreds 1, Standing Rock Sioux 0

Yesterday’s dual headlines were a sick — beyond sick! — reminder of how little has changed in this country since the 1950s.  Shit, make that the 1850s.

The Dakota Access Pipeline Company has sicced their private goon squad — the most brutal crackdown yet — on the nonviolent Native protesters who don’t want their water supply polluted by a pipeline rupture.

Meanwhile, in southeastern Oregon, a jury has decided that it’s perfectly OK for a gang of inbred neck-drooling rednecks to stage an armed takeover of a wildlife sanctuary, and occupy it for six weeks while threatening local residents.

I can’t think of anything printable to write about this.  So instead of going on an endless rant about corporate enforcer/thugs disguised as “law enforcement officers” and a bunch of armed knuckle-dragging vigilante wannabes, I’ll just copy a few of the Facebook memes that have been going around since yesterday:

Don't Touch That Dial! The 2018 Election will Feature Even MORE Mudslinging!

If you're worried about getting bored and restless after November 8th, fear not:

Even if Democrats win the Senate this year, Republicans are practically guaranteed to recapture it with a vengeance in the 2018 election.

“What few people talk about — but should — is that this could be a very short-lived majority for Senate Democrats, as the 2018 field is remarkably bad for them.

The numbers for that year are stunning: 25 Democratic or Democratic-affiliated independents are up for reelection, compared with just eight Republicans. That’s as lopsided an election cycle as you will ever see.

But a look inside the numbers makes the Democrats’ challenge in 2018 all the more daunting. Fully 20 percent of the 25 Democratic seats are in states that then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney carried in 2012 (and even Trump is likely to carry on Nov. 8): Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia.”

OK, get that relieved complacent expression off your face, clench your teeth and make a fist 'til your knuckles turn white.  And maintain that posture for at least two more years. 

Never a dull moment.

Vladimir Putin Distances Himself from Donald Trump; says “Trump's Behavior Completely Indefensible.”

Vladimir Putin told reporters:

 “As the father of two daughters, I cannot condone or defend Mr. Trump’s behavior.”

Putin said he had been planning to contribute 31 million Rubles to Trump's election campaign, but now he plans instead to “focus on down-ballot races.”
