Bad Ass and the E.P.A.

Every trail blazed.  Every hidden path down a secret path.  Every inch of glory that is nature…has been pissed on by the egoism of Trump.  

Why believe in global warming?  After all, Trump is elderly, he isn’t going to live much longer.

Why institute new policies in which to keep our environment thriving?  Trump and his cronies can afford to remain healthy.  After all they have government instituted health insurance.

Thus,

Who is the Worse?
Nata Pepper

When presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to hire only “the best people,” no one thought to ask him what they’d be best at. Trump himself has set standards for corruption, dishonesty, bullying, and callousness that seem unsurpassable, yet that hasn’t stopped his subordinates from trying, including the three men doing his environmental dirty work: Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, and Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. They’re all bad, but who’s the best at being worst?

At the Energy Department, Rick Perry has struggled. Although he may aspire to malevolence, he has managed only mediocrity. Like the proverbial hedgehog, Secretary Perry knows one big (actually, bad) thing: He’s supposed to promote dirty fuels no matter what. So far, he’s failed miserably. His plan to resurrect the coal industry by forcing consumers to subsidize failing coal plants was shot down by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and his attempt to get the government to subsidize dirty fuels for bogus national security reasons also stalled. Although he deserves demerits for dishonesty (national security? really?), he clearly needs to try harder.

That leaves Andrew Wheeler at the EPA and Ryan Zinke at Interior as the current contenders for being the best at environmental awfulness. It’s quite a matchup.

Acting Administrator Wheeler, of course, is following in the fossil-fuel–fetishizing footsteps of his old boss, Scott Pruitt, whose legendary corruption was as inept as it was self-serving. Thus far, Wheeler’s been shrewd enough to avoid Pruitt’s most obvious missteps, although his vile and racist social media activity did earn headlines.

Nevertheless, in an impressively short time (just over 100 days), Wheeler has brought his own flair to turning the EPA into the agency that Every Polluter Adores. He’s attempted to roll back protections from methane emissions, mercury pollution, and toxic chemicals; cooked up a sham scheme to replace the Clean Power Plan; attacked clean car standards; moved to remove public health concerns from pollution safeguards by censoring science; and, for good measure, fired the head of the Office of Children’s Health. One recent and particularly Trumpy Wheeler move was to claim credit for Obama administration resultswhile simultaneously undermining the policies that produced them. No wonder the boss loves him.

Wheeler’s past experience as coal lobbyist probably helped him hit the ground running. Coming from a brief stint in Congress, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had to be more of a self-starter in Trumpworld. Yet of Trump’s three environmental attack dogs, it’s Zinke who has truly excelled at emulating the boss.

Bullying? Zinke reportedly went so far as to threaten retaliation against a senator from his own party if she didn’t vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and he has tried to intimidate his department’s career staff and scientists into keeping silent about climate change.

Callousness? Zinke’s attacks on national monuments and other public lands have been breathtaking in their disregard for science, public opinion, community stakeholders, and common sense.

Dishonesty? When Zinke said shortly after being confirmed, “You can hear it from my lips: We will not sell or transfer public land,” it wasn’t even the first time he made that pledge. Yet he was caught red-handed trying to do exactly that with part of the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument in Utah.

That’s all impressively appalling, but it’s corruption where Zinke really stands out among his pro-polluter peers. As of last week, 15 different ethical investigations had been opened into Zinke’s conduct as Interior Secretary, with six still ongoing (another three are pending because, frankly, there aren’t enough investigators to handle the workload that Zinke’s created). That’s a record that would almost put Scott Pruitt to shame — if these guys knew what shame was. Things are so bad, in fact, that Zinke apparently tried (unsuccessfully) to replace his department’s inspector general with a party hack working for Ben Carson at Housing and Urban Development.

So, who’s best at the job of being bad? Zinke and Wheeler are each so uniquely awful that it’s impossible to choose between them. The sooner both are gone, the better (and the same goes for the guy who hired them).

How ’bout a Boehner, a Weiner and a Dick?

To be blond thru and thru…you must not understand the following:
AYCE at your local restaurant does not mean that there is a special sauce for the ‘not so special’ fish of the day! RYO has nothing to do with mechanical items and/or is a new not hip but trying very hard to be, radio station, found on the AM dial.
Lastly, carrying a six pack of O’Doul’s Amber on trusted side kick, Aunt Gladys, moped extraordinaire, not a good idea. Cans may leave a tin taste and the feeling of wearing braces all over again, yet it is less difficult to pick up off the side of the road than bottles!

That being said, any self respecting blond knows bad form and bad hair when they see it:

Weiner Sorry as More Sexts Appear

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted Tuesday to sending additional explicit photos and texts to a 22-year-old woman online.

The new correspondence was posted Monday by the gossip website The Dirty. The woman involved was not identified.

“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner said in a statement, referring to when he announced his mayoral run two months ago.

Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011 after acknowledging having sexual conversations with at least a half-dozen women.

The woman said that her online relationship with Weiner lasted for six months and continued into last summer.

Those nasty SEXTS! Many of us have gone a round or two with stupid sexual encounters. Certainly we all have seen our share of men who endorse ‘lesbian relationships’ just by being who they are, what they wear and how they act. Matter of fact, Mr. Boehner, is a strong candidate

John Boehner expects you to take August off. He's in for a surprise. Be part of Action August.
A Surprised Boehner

for celibacy and neutering at a young age.
Mr. Weiner and Mr. Boehner?
Texas has just passed a bill that essentially takes a women’s right to choice out of the hands of the governing body and directly into the hands of the government and their geriatric male bodies.
Upon further not in-depth research…gay marriage, considered a sin by the above mentioned Gomer Pyle‘s in three-piece polyester suits, continues to cause a ruckus!
Those nasty ass homosexuals! What are they thinking? Pedophiles and perverts all of ’em. Digging down deeper into the research pile of shit…most sexual crimes are committed by heterosexual white males.

‘Really, you don’t say?  Well, butter me biscuits an call me a republican!’

Boehner and Weiner like to put their shit in places that it doesn’t belong. Yet, women and minorities get a ticket to ride the fairy off to an isle where they can be kept a close eye on.
In mythical terms, the isle had been named Lesbos. It is now commonly known as, P-town!
Perhaps, Boehner, Weiner and Dick…Dick Cheney, should start their own boy band. They all have such high hopes for everyone else’s upright moral fiber that they often unselfishly forget to keep their own morals in their pants!

When troubles call, and your backs to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin that dam

Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your feelin bad
Stead of feelin sad
Just remember that ram

They’re just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop
