Friday 8/25/17 - Day 218: Hurricane Harvey

As I write, Hurricane Harvey has just made landfall in Texas. If you're in that region, stay safe. The administration is largely unprepared for a natural disaster like this, of course. While it's likely to be the first disaster not of their own making, it will be a disaster for many people nonetheless. Fueled by warmer waters and temperatures from climate change, this is going to be a bad hurricane.

Today's headlines were dominated by Trump's unscripted "clap for me" rally in Phoenix.

From the guy who campaigned on getting out of Afghanistan. Apparently he took some convincing by the military wing. I'm completely convinced that this administration has no idea about what it's doing in foreign policy.

Otherwise, today's seemed oddly quiet, so here's some appropriate reading to remind you of all the fantastic aspects of the government:

Monday 8/21/17 - Day 214: Solar Eclipse

After a month of for my own sanity, I'm now back and ready to keep you up-to-date with the latest shenanigans by our filthy administration. I've posted links to other aggregators for each of the days I missed, if you really want to catch up. Otherwise, here's a 2-minute rundown on how fucked up the month has been.

Today was completely dominated by a total solar eclipse, coast to coast. Not even the administration could doubt the science involved in the phenomenal natural spectacle.

But while the nation looked towards the sun and the moon...
