So far in the saga of the new President, we have discussed destructive outrage, outrage after Republicans decided to push through confirmation of two Trump cabinet nominees after Democrats decided to
boycott the proceedings not show up for work that day, outrage over Starbucks promising to hire some refugees over the next five years, boycotts of Trump products – even ones by his daughter – because TRUMP!
OUTRAGE! OUTRAGE! OUTRAGE!
So I guess the true progtards have now run out of things to be outraged about, so we’ve reached the level of “stupid outrage.” This is outrage so dumb, that even the engagement editor from Mother Jones – you know the ultra progressive magazine – called it “the dumbest outrage ever.”
You see, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway recently had the unmitigated gall to sit kneeling on the couch in the Oval Office!
I’ll wait for you to finish gasping in sheer horror.
You read that right.
Deray McKesson, who apparently has never met an incident he didn’t link to racism in some way, howled that Conway’s informal pose indicates that no one is to take the “meeting,” which just happened to be with leaders of traditionally black colleges and universities, seriously. Therefore, RAAAACISM!!
One cannot possibly *headdesk* hard enough to wipe the stupid!
Other scandalized screeches included complaints about her decorum. After all, this is the Oval Office! How classless!
Just look at that lack of decorum and lack of class!
The Oval is an office. Yes, it is a historically significant office in a historically significant building, but it is still an office, and work takes place there, including late night sessions, in which sometimes *GASP* people tend to be informal, take their shoes off, wear jeans, and even sit on the floor!
Conway was caught in a moment after the official portion of the meeting was apparently over, and the attendees gathered for a group shot. She took a photo with her phone and was in the process of examining it when the outrageous picture was snapped.
Oh, the horror!
This latest “controversy” came on top of the horrifying, nation-destroying revelation that 45 apparently eats his steaks well-done, with ketchup.
Now, granted, as a fan of steak, it’s fairly horrifying to me that anyone would eat their meat well-done and slathered in a sugar and artificial color-filled, tomato-like substance, but hey… to each his own. Ruining a perfectly good cut of meat is not a federal offense, although one might think so, judging from the wailing lamentations from the progtard left!
Ostentatious Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema nearly shat his progressive panties at the thought!
Also: Trump ordered a strip steak, which he ate per his preference, well-done and with ketchup, as if the entree would be accompanied by a sippy cup. (Insert a moment of silence for the cow, the condiment and what most chefs would call a forced marriage. Really, I feel the same way about masking the flavor of a $54 dry-aged steak as I do about guys who wear baseball caps indoors: Just don’t. And pity the new kitchen lead, chef de cuisine Brian Drosenos, who had to deal with the ultimate VIP in his first week on the job.)
Kevin Pang – the food editor of the A.V. Club was downright morally offended on the cow’s behalf, clutching his pearls in emasculated angst!
What asshole goes out to dinner at one of the nation capital’s most-acclaimed steakhouses, orders a 30-day dry aged New York strip, then asks the chef to cook it well done? And if that’s not enough, eats it with ketchup like a 5-year-old?
What kind of an asshole spends precious time publicly criticizing another person’s food choices?
Seriously, this is what the progtards are now freaking out about? Well, that and Melania’s dress, which was apparently too short for church, which is the first time they’ve given a flying rat’s fuck about what goes on inside any house of worship since they decided churches needed to be forced perform gay weddings.
There’s plenty to be concerned about with the current administration. Deteriorating relations with Mexico, a resurgent and aggressive Russia, Iran, China, North Korea are all important issues, but they require critical thinking and analysis, so the progtards would rather focus on OMGWELLDONESTEAKSHORTSKIRTKNEELONCOUCHINOVALMANCHURIANCHEETO!
So apparently, as the holiday season approaches, so does the new Starbucks cup, as well as the accompanying outrage from overly-sensitive dipshits.
Last year, Starbucks introduced its holiday cup in a solid red. That’s it. Nothing there. Just red.
That caused some Special Snowflakes to get butthurt, because somehow Starbucks took away Christmas or some shit.
#StarbucksRedCup reeks of political correctness. Count me in on ones avoiding that operation.

Now, we all know Twitter is stupid. It is a magnet for the world’s biggest fuckwits, who band together to produce megatons of shitgittery. The idiots who consider their 140-character thoughts oh-so-deep somehow think their profound brain droppings will prompt social change.
We all know how effective hashtag foreign policy is, don’t we?
I will also readily admit that probably a good portion of Twitter idiots who experienced chafed labia about the plain red cup last year were probably trolls – 4chan or otherwise. (This is for the commenter who will immediately screech that I’m ignoring the possibility that some groups out there are out to make right wingers look bad!)
But it looks like the morons are at it again this year.
Whether they’re protesting in earnest, or merely trying to get some attention with their stupid, it seems like tis the season for abject dumbassery.
Starbucks just introduced a green cup – IN TIME FOR THE ELECTION – that tries to promote some unity at a time when we are incredibly divided as a country. The green cup has friends, baristas, and customers drawn in one continuous line, symbolizing unity.
Some people apparently did not like this. At. All.
who has seen the new starbucks holiday cups? NOT RED BUT THEY ARE GREEN???? who are all of these ppl on my cup and noone is santa or Jesus?!

Some people were confused by the concept of unity.

Yet others thought it was a Muslim plot to destroy the free world through brainwashing or some shit.

I don’t know what Barstool Sports is, but I think they’re confused.

This twatmold is apparently confused about what, exactly, our shared values are.

This one was upset. Not for any political reason, apparently, but because they don’t like green or something?
— Tammy Jorrak🕸 (@LAgypsea) November 2, 2016
Phil here can’t help himself. Apparently, everything is a liberal plot.
Now that beloved diversity has blown up in our faces, the libs @Starbucks have begun shilling for unity. lol,,, how typical
— Philip Bordogna (@BordognaPhilip) November 1, 2016
These two are upset that there’s liberal propaganda in the non-holiday cup, instead of coffee.
Voting with my $$ = no more @Starbucks I’m tired of having my lattes with a side of liberal propaganda. Boo to the non-holiday green cup.

Tell ya what, Arch. Stop pushing your “conservative” bullshit, and drink coffee.
As with the Like Cage outrage, it’s possible that trolls have decided once again to paint an enormous “STUPID” sign on the backs of American society, but it is also entirely possible that there people out there who really are this ridiculous.
After all, have you seen the perpetually chapped asses on the part of the social justice howler monkeys over the years? Everything from Mexican food to Halloween costumes chafes their delicate labia! Is it really so difficult to believe that we have screeching hemorrhoids on the right as well?
And by the way, the green cups are not the holiday cups, apparently. Starbucks, trying to be a good neighbor, has decided to put out a special edition election cup as a reminder that we are one country and connected to one another. The actual holiday cups, I hear, are coming out after November 10, and they’re kind of pretty. They’ve got holly and leaves, and are pretty festive.
But don’t let that stop the perpetually offended from taking their money elsewhere! If there wasn’t something out there to get angry about, what the hell would they do with their time?
Do me a favor, morons. Just drink your coffee and shut the fuck up!
I’ve been on vacation in Vegas with Rob the past week (no, we did not get married), so I haven’t blogged. However, several folks informed me via comments that Bob Strait has died. The military veteran who recently lost the woman he loved for 65 years to a brutal attack has finally joined his sweetheart.
I can’t imagine the loss. Even writing about this, I feel this ache inside – this unreal anger that makes me want to find the filth that raped and beat an elderly woman to death – and end his life in the most painful way possible. I know my grief can’t compare to the grief this family is feeling. I almost feel like I have no right to grieve for their loved one, but I do.
I grieve, because Bob and Nancy Strait died needlessly. She died from violence. I think he just died of a broken heart.
“It broke his heart, regardless of the injuries, it broke Daddy’s heart,” Lanora said. “For 65 years, the love of his life was gone.”
I grieve because there is little media attention to this family’s suffering. There’s little outrage, other than our military community. There are no sweatshirts. There are no politicians and loud charlatans demanding justice.
There’s just this family, and those of us who cared enough to repost this story and work to spread it far and wide, so people know.
And Tyrone Woodfork is still alive. And I don’t see him mustering even the little remorse it takes to give up his fellow scumbags.
Here’s hoping he dies. Painfully. Slowly.
If that makes me a bad person, so be it. Someone has to be outraged.
As for Bob Strait…
Be at peace. Be at peace evermore…
