Happy New Year?

childsplaychucky


Here is a cheery prediction from an old friend:

2016 has that feeling. I feel like we’re in the hands of some diabolically bratty kid who is determined to see how much damage he can wreck on us. And for whatever reason, all our attempts to resist him so far have been feckless as one by one the safety valves and emergency systems are disabled.

It’s not like we don’t see the danger coming. You’d have to be a hard ass with malice in your heart and a ruthless ambition for power to think anything good is going to happen when Trump takes office. And even though the number of people who didn’t vote for Trump exceeds the number that did by something like 12 Million people, it’s going to take a while before the majority of Trump’s mislead supporters get a clue. Meanwhile, the Democrats are fighting with each other when finding common ground is not only easy but critical, and the Republicans are about to take a chainsaw to Social Security and Medicare.

The world’s geography hasn’t changed. The chokepoints that existed during WWII still exist today: the eastern Mediterranean, the south China Sea, the Nato countries on the eastern front. Funny how they all seem relevent again all of the sudden.

And yet, we’re powerless to stop it. Not only powerless but powerless for the cheapest of reasons. It might look unseemly.

Most of us do not want this man. He’s capable of massive destruction in every conceivable way. Yet we keep getting pushed closer and closer to getting him, like we are strapped to a conveyor belt that steadily inches towards the laser aimed between our legs.


I know I shouldn’t mock and jeer, but I’m not a nice person.

    My mom is a mega bitch. Seriously I love her but she is awful.
    Psych nurse that hates fags. It’s her birthday. She is wondering why two margharitas makes her feel loopy.
    Duh. I used a ton of tequila.

  3. Somebody says:

    So in her delusional world Hillary won by 12 million now. It’s like a fish story, soon the bitter clingers will insist Hillary won by 100 million and that Vladimir Putin hovered above the US in an invisible space ship “hacking” the voting machines in select states.

    BTW what is it with these idiot progs insisting Trump will take away medicare and SS? He was adamant during the campaign those programs need to be saved. It’s like the LGBT Trump phobia, absolutely no basis for that fear. Trump went out of his way to support the LGBT community, included them in his convention speech, had Peter Thiel as a speaker at the convention and as an advisor.

    • Ann says:

      I have a friend who happens to be Jewish. Her son was petrified Trump was going to round them up into camps (or something). When Trump won, she and I had a pretty long conversation about how her son was doing with it (where in the world does an 11-year-old kid get these ideas!? Home or TV (Chicago)). I sent her Bibi’s video congratulating “his friend” Donald Trump. She showed it to her son, and it helped.

      I have not said much the last 2 months, but couldn’t help but comment about that UN backstabbing. I wonder if the Jews will be “sure Dem votes” in the future?

      Note: even my Jewish family members never thought Trump was gonna round them up, and they live in Boston and the surrounding ‘burbs. Pretty darned blue.

      Anyhooooo…. the delusion is strong when it comes to Trump. And I have no idea why.

      You know, that sounds like the basis for a new religion! The Libs certainly have the virtue signaling, faith and correctness down to be religious fanatics. It’s just that they are so superior to most people that they need their own, new religion.
      But seriously Trump won’t have time to take away their Medicare and SS as he will be going house to house taking away their birth control and forcing them to bear children. I’m personally pretty excited about this as I would like another child, I still love my old children but they just aren’t cute anymore and they suck at providing grand children. At 64 I had pretty much given up on the idea but Progs assured me that forced child bearing was an issue for me.

      • lateblum says:

        OMG Constance !!! I ❤ what you just wrote ! My upstairs neighbor was either watching an extremely violent movie last night or having extremely wild sex that you could hear throughout the building. . I think we should take away her bc 'cuz none of us can stand the worry the noise causes us any longer. Let her deal with the consequences of loud wild sex. LOL
        (I'm old-ish, but the others are in their 30's and 40's.)
        Happy New Year!
        I hope you get what you wish for.

        • lateblum says:

          Well, ^that^ made no sense, I was having some trouble with my computer earlier…and I had deleted and reposted. Obviously something was lost in the transition…. I meant to say that my other neighbors and I were ALL concerned about the sounds we were hearing before we determined it was loud, boisterous (and maybe even) fun S E X. Those others who were also concerned about the sounds are much, much younger than I.

      • Somebody says:

        He’s going to take your tampons too!

        I’m pretty excited about the forced childbirth too. Should we start trying to conceive now? If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again…..and again..and again . #winning!

    • 1539days says:

      Over 5 million more people voted against Hillary Clinton than for her, and they make up most of the states of the country.

      • DeniseVB says:

        That pesky Electoral College can be easily exchanged for awarding by (THE PEOPLE) congressional districts won. Trump would have taken 50 states. Trump had more coverage than Verizon 😉 So yeah, the EC sucks because the states award their EV’s according to their voo-doo laws or something. I know here in Virginia, it’s racism. We finally got Voter ID law,racism. Hillary won, the racisist cities in VA, not racism. 😛

    • NBD says:

      To be honest, I’m all for rationalizing Medicare and SS. Entitlement reform is a critical part of the Trump agenda: It starts with the repeal of Obamacare (no replacement needed, BTW) and goes on to tackle the YUUGE expenses associated with the entitlements. The programs were designed back when life expectancy was something on the order of 72, now there’s an additional decade of benefits. Between Trump and Ryan, I think we have the makings of some real reform. And fixing entitlements will pave the way to an economic boom that will benefit everyone, even the vile progs.

  4. Dora says:

    12 more hours? I am so glad I’m not there.

    • Constance says:

      I know! I can’t imagine a worse way to spend New Years Eve. I’m going to the new Star Wars movie.

      • lateblum says:

        Was gonna see La La Land. But now I’m going to dinner and coming back home. It’s cold out here.

  5. Somebody says:

    OMFG 7 offensive penalties against Alabama, 3 for delay of game. They’re winning, but it’s like they’re self destructing in the 3rd quarter, oy vey. Fumbles, injuries, penalties, yardage losses oh my!

    I might need to start drinking early

  6. I have one of those weekly pill-minders that divides each day into four. I decorated it like an Advent calendar.

    • Somebody says:

      Haha! If you had some good drugs that would be a hell of an advent calendar…….one the first day of Christmas my doctor gave to me one oxycontin, two percoets, three vicodin, four plastidils, five Xanax bars, six darvocets, seven lortabs, eight Tylenol “3’s, nine ativans, ten tramadols, eleven valiums, twelve big fat joints.

      If you put together THAT advent calendar I’m coming over to visit!

  7. Somebody says:

    Ugly 3rd quarter, Bama finally scored again 24-7 now, feeling better 9:52 left in game

  8. lateblum says:

    See y’all later. Maybe not until next year. So
    Happy 2017 !!!

  9. I got food, booze, and toilet paper. I’m not leaving the house again until Monday.

  10. Meanwhile, over in the alternate reality known as Buffoon Juice:

    December 31, 2016 at 5:30 pm
    The MSM only finds their skeptical side when it comes to things Democrats say. When Republicans say it, they swallow any bullshit they’re fed.

    And when Republicans and Democrats are saying opposite things, it only compounds the problem.

  11. Somebody says:

    Watching Ohio State vs Clemson now, no dog in the fight but should be a good game. Clemson’s QB DeShawn Watson is good, the NFL is definitely in his future.

    The garage band is playing across the street. Everybody on the street is over there or out in the cul-de-sac. Tons of fireworks, they’really already shooting a bunch off. They’re all already getting pretty drunk too. I don’t know I’m not feeling very social, kind of enjoying myself out here in the “man cave”, watching football on the 4K big screen. I just want to relax and enjoy the few days of vacation I have left.

  12. Seems like there is gonna be a last-minute rush.

  13. Venus says:

    Happy New Year fellow TCHers!!!

    2016 was a fabulous year when the impossible happened — Brexit, Cubs & Trump.
    2017 will be even better when that narcissistic, thin skinned “community organizer” becomes #NotMyPresident on January 20.

    I’m home tonight with strep throat and a middle ear infection (killer) so it will be a quite one for me. Hope everyone has a safe & happy New Year and that your 2017 is filled with love, joy and prosperity.
    xoxo

    Fireworks started early in NOLA as heavy rain is predicted for midnight — animals are already freaking out — cats under the bed, dogs on the sofa under the blanket with me in between barking fits.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Had snacks and an early toast with the neighbors as most are now tucked into their beds. A couple of us not have the heart to remind them there are fireworks for First Night.

      • Jadzia says:

        We had snails (except my brilliant husband forgot to get bread, so I soaked up THE GARLICKY BUTTER WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON TO EAT SNAILS with some flour tortillas), scallops-and-pasta, and a do-over on the Yule log, frozen, made by the French version of Sara Lee. And then we binge-watched the rest of Designated Survivor, which seems like a great show trapped in the script of an awful show. I hope they straighten out their awful, awful writers sometime during the winter hiatus.

        • Snails are one of those pretentious foods (like caviar) that nobody really likes but they eat it anyway cuz it’s fancy and expensive. Then they pretend to like it so everybody will think they have class.

          You can smear cat shit on a fancy cracker but it’s still cat shit.

          • Jadzia says:

            I never had them before I lived here. Basically they are a butter and garlic delivery device.

    • kanaughty says:

      I miss going to our levee two blocks away in algiers point for this and the christmas burns. And all other fireworks occasions of which there were many in nola 🙂 have fun watching for me 😉

  15. Molly is draped over my DVD player like a slice of melted cheese on a beef patty. I guess I’m watching something on the DVR.

    Hey! Happy New Year, TCHers! Wishing you all the best of everything this coming year. Thank you all who offered me such kind words of support a couple posts back. Wanted to thank each of you individually but didn’t want to clog up the whole sidebar with my avatar 🙂 LOVE my TCH family – and I can’t thank you enough for your kindness. ❤

    Back from dinner and exchanged Christmas presents with an old friend. I took her home and I’m now in my jammies and waiting for the year to end.
    Happy New Year to all TCHers. Thank you for your support and encouragement when I was recovering from surgery and going through all those months of rehab and PT. Thank you for letting me spend my fears, joys, sadness and happiness with you.. And thank you for sharing yours with me.
    I hope everyone who is under the weather tonight, is over the moon in short order. Next, we get to share the hope that a change in DC brings. ❤ you all.!

      Dave Barry has been 100% laughably wrong ALL YEAR on Trump why in the hell wouldl anyone think he has something to say worth hearing now?

      Trump beat ALL commers, including the Bush and Clinton machine and this genius Barry calls *him* the buffoon? LOL Ok, bub — whatever helps you slee at night, Mr. Irrelevant.

  25. Venus says:

    Young idiot “this is my fight song” girl singing on FOX before singing John Lennon’s ode to communism (“Imagine”) said “I sing this every year at New Year, and this year it is more important than ever. Listen. This is how we change the world!”

    Oh really? When John Lennon wrote that song he owned not one but TWO apartments at the super exclusive Dakota in NYC — the 2nd one was just to always have set at 60 degrees to STORE HIS & OKO’S FUR COATS.

    So shove the “Imagine no possessions” up your *ss, sister.

    • swanspirit says:

      You must have read my mind, or GMTA. I was thinking, that’s where you get your reality, from a John Lennon song? John didn’t give away many of the millions he made being a Beatle.

    • lateblum says:

      I’ve thought he was kinda twisted for several years, but now I’m certain.
      Does he expect people of even moderate standards to continue to follow him? or Is he trying to push people away and then fade away himself? Either way, I don’t really care. He is simply demonstrating his true person.

    LMFAO

    From Milo’s lips to God’s ears. (I’ve already pre-ordered his book):

    Several of my gay friends think me and pup has something to do with gay parenting. So not true.
    I was just there. Beautiful mistake. I mistakenly picked up a snot.

    I get I am a fag and others see what they will
    Ten years of her annoying me .

      So, just the regular kitty-cat hats that have been ubiquitous ever since Stitch ‘n Bitch was published like 20 years ago?

      • elliesmom says:

        I learned to knit in 2008 when I was invited to join a pro-Hillary Bitter Knitters group. It turns out I really like to knit. The current knitting group I belong to either voted for Trump or stayed home to wash their hair. Several of them do a lot of charity knitting. They discussed knitting pussy hats for the march for women who can’t knit. Who would want to pass up a chance to make liberal women look foolish?

        • Lulu says:

          Does everything they do have to have some stupid “thang” with it? Just go march or whatever. More virtue signaling to get some desperate attention and they have to have a way to identify each other or have a theme/meme, silly childish culture marketing way to spend money or make something tacky. Expect endless selfies and twitter postings of their uselessness. Trump used a golf/trucker hat and now they are going to copy it and but of course use an cat lady hat.

      Maybe it’s you? – oh, it’s definitely you! The ‘I’m my own person’ drunkspeech tells you right away why you are alone; can’t compromise?, can’t put someone else and their feelings before your own?, Can’t ever be wrong can you?… you’re going to be alone a looong time. Better get a pet (poor pet).

    I was very lucky that I got a job at Joe Allen in the 90’s its no frills but a yuuge celeb hangout. He has places in London and Paris. You go to Joe’s to have a burger in Paris. He opened a small bar on West 46th in 1966. His friends were broke actors living in Hell’s Kitchen. He let them run tabs. Those broke kids became Al Pacino. I worked the door on Sundays. Joe had me put together a yuuuge package for the Guardian Angels. . I got access to everything Broadway. Free. I was backstage hundreds of times. My sister visited me with my cousin they had never been to NY. We had a table Patti Lupone came in no tables. She asked to sit with us. No problem. I knew her. My sister was silent for entire meal. My cousin had her sign her boob.

    I think next time you catch a show you should dine at Joe Allen. There is a flop wall. Posters from shows that closed in a week. I worked with a guy that got HIV. He refused treatment and was hospice. Joe owns his brownstones he put up his entire family for months. Free food. They were working class with a gay son dying from AIDS. Joe did not blink. Take care of them was all he said.
    One time Lauren Bacall was raising a stink over a baked potato. There are no substitutions at Joe Allen. Its pre theater. Bacall tried to belittle a waiter. He had no choice. Joe came in and he beat her potato. They had dated. Special place.
    I was tending bar at Patzo on 85th and Broadway. A very young girl came in. She was 18 I was 25. She lived at Martha Washington Hotel. I had to take care of her. She was so young. We somehow ended up working at Joe Allen. She is now a reporter stationed in the middle east. She was on Greta a lot during Egyptian uprising. Wrote a book called Everything is Possible in Yemen.
    Its funny. There was a diner on Broadway that sold greek foods by day. A lonely place on Manhattan’s Upper west side that served drinks at night.
    A pathetic group of misfits engaged. A diner with a jukebox. Odd people living in Upper West Side.
    Sara Palins cousin was there. There was no Sarah in 1994. She was a teacher at Parsons. Got prego and chose to move back to Alaska and have her baby. Just freaks avoiding the scene. Steve denies it but wiki and imdb say he is Marlon Brando’s son. It was a greek diner that lonely people walked into alone to have a drink. Lots of success.

    My brothers and sister decided to discuss my dad’s medical bills. I was treated like an after thought. Assholes I paid it all off. Cash. There is no bill. My awful grandmother had me cleaning banks at 10 she made me save 10%. I always saved 10%. Forty years. I collected cans to eat but I never touched that money. My dad my father needed some bank. Not an issue. I paid. Siblings don’t get it. I live in my parents basement but I bought the house. My brothers think I am a sponge. Don’t give a fuck what they think. How much do you think 72 days in a hospital cost. Hint more than 100 thousand. My dad. I will spend everything for him. He is my father. My siblings think I am poor. I had shitty jobs but I always saved
    when I worked at Bouley as a bartender I put 500 a day in the bank. I pounded Jim Beam to pass out . I drank myself to sleep to just repeat. I saved 100,000 in a year.

    Holly died from cancer. She was born to a Vietnamese woman and an American. Holly was my friend. We shared an apartment.
    Wiki ignores her. No mention. Marc Mesvinsky bio ignores Holly. She was first kid adopted by a single mother. Bio has Phu.
    Holly was so much. Seriously roll the dice. When does a dirt poor fag that had multiple open hearts meet a girl that was daughter of Vietnamese prostitute in philly. Her parents are Clinton friendly.
    Holly died. Cancer is stupid.
