What Terrible Thing Should I Blog About Today?

There are so many choices!

How about the ways in which Lord Dampnut's forthcoming list of crimes by undocumented immigrants mirror's actual Hitler's list of crimes committed by Jewish people?

And we see back in Nazi Germany there was a paper called—a Nazi paper called Der Stürmer, and they had a department called "Letter Box," and readers were invited to send in stories of supposed Jewish crimes. And Der Stürmer would publish them, and they would include some pretty horrific graphic illustrations of these crimes, as well. And there was even a sort of a lite version of it, if you will, racism lite, in which the Neues Volk, which was more like a Look or a Life magazine, which normally highlighted beautiful Aryan families and their beautiful homes, would run a feature like "The Criminal Jew," and they would show photos of "Jewish-looking," as they called it, people who represented different kinds of crimes that one ought to watch out for from Jews.

If I were an actual journalist I would make it my life goal to get into the White House within the next four years just so I can ask Dampnut "why are you so Hitler?"

On the bright side, I've seen people suggesting we publish a list of crime committed daily by white people. Someone in the Justice Department needs to go rogue and start doing this on Twitter.

But then there's the move to gut clean air regulations now heading to the Republican-controlled Senate!

With a rarely used, backdoor tactic known as the Congressional Review Act (CRA), anti-environmental extremists in Congress are pushing forward with a pro-polluter agenda targeting clean air and water safeguards as nearly their first order of business. 
Each year, oil and gas companies leak or deliberately vent millions of tons of methane, a potent climate pollutant, into the atmosphere during oil and gas operations. Methane pollution from these operations not only speeds up global warming, but is often accompanied by toxic air pollutants like benzene, formaldehyde, and ethylbenzene, threatening the health of residents who live nearby.

If you don't have asthma yet, you will!

Hate crimes in LA against sweet old Korean ladies!

A Texas bill to ban sanctuary cities throughout the state is heading to their Republican-controlled Senate!

Arkansas passed a bill that allows the family members of any person who had an abortion to SUE ABORTION PROVIDERS!!

This is your Republican USA, people.

But there is good news happening as well.

The AARP is warning their members about Dampnut's fuckery, and you don't piss off the old people.

The bill to sell off 3.3 million acres of public land has been withdrawn among public outrage.

Nordstrom is dropping Ivanka Trump's clothing line.

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General announced an investigation into the Muslim ban.

The confirmation vote for unqualified billionaire Betsy DeVos has been pushed back, giving us more time to flip more GOP Senators.

Oh, and Beyonce is pregnant.

So that's your news for the day. Remember that just as many good things are happening as bad things. We're doing well in this fight. Keep it up.
