There is a reinvigorated cultural response to the current political dysfunction on the rise. Artists from around the world have mobilised together to troll Trump by creating controversial protest paintings, sculptures, and murals- and they’re holding nothing back. There is no limit of political satire nor hues of orange in these depictions of the U.S president however their outright messages have provoked censorship across social media sites (so much for free speech, eh) and even the administration has threatened particular artists with litigation. Alas, all is not lost with this dose of cultural reassurance: here are five distorted versions of D.T that are sure to make protest-art great again.

This grotesque rendition of Donald Trump is not for the soft-stomached as it is curated completely from raw meat, fish, chewed up pieces of croissant and drizzled in…

Transgender Community* Trumped by the Arc and Bent of Autocratic Politics

WARNING! THIS IS A LONG POST: AS IS THIS ONE: My fury throughout the whole last campaign to and through the election until now has never been much about politics. Politics in this country, while they have been expanding outward toward the wacky fringes leaving the mostly moderate radicals (the rarity of moderates these days …

“Post-apocalyptic fiction has been moved to our current affairs section”

I wish I were smart enough to be able to claim this post's eye/brain-catching headline as my own. But, alas, I cannot because I got it from this read-worthy #longread of an article written by John Feffer, a journalist and author who, with his read-worthy article, attempts to (in subtle sublimity) -- and in my …

Rockin’ with The Donald in the Nothing’s for Free World

According to this Rolling Stones article, this is his favorite song: Ah, I'm just kidding... Actually, the article speculates that he is pretty much your typical orange white rich dude who listens to mostly Classic Rock. He personally created playlists for his rallies during the campaign and always closed with this Classic (barely) Rock song: …

I’ve been a #Trump alarmist from the start, but what do I know…

Admittedly, I know not much about many things; but still, even with my unsophisticated eye I have been able to see the authoritarian writing on the proverbial [Mexican] wall long before Trump's construction on it [deconstruction of it] will begin [had begun]. But who cares what a no name know nothing like me whines on …

#GOFALCONS

Brady and Belichick support Trump. Trump supports Putin. Putin supports oppression. Oppression supports fear. Fear supports hate. Hate supports violence. Violence supports violence. Violence supports violence. Violence supports violence... Support freedom, peace, and love. Support the Falcons. #happyfootballday #kaepernick  

On today’s Freak Show, or as some call it, President-elect Trump’s Press Conference

On what I heard: That Trump will not divest himself from his business That Trump has at least considered running both his business and the United States simultaneously That Trump believes the Intelligence Community is corrupt and is engaging in Nazi-like tactics in order to discredit him and his presidency That Trump believes the Intelligence …

The Political Semantics of Designating Evil Properly

So, I was cleaning out my dashboard's cluttered "Draft" folder when I happened upon this article that, apparently, I, with my lingering chemo-clouded brain, forgot to post after penning it so long ago. Because I'm lazy and don't feel like writing something fresh, I'm posting it now. To be honest (my Spidey senses always tingles …

#BLAMEOBAMA

In case you've never watched the following video of President Obama roasting The Donald to a humiliating crisp thereby motivating him, The Donald, to not just run for president (he had already kind of done that) but to run and win regardless the cost or the damage done in order to destroy Obama's legacy you …

Understanding This Thing Called #Trump

I've decided I'm not going to try and fight it any longer and I am just going to go ahead and, for the immediate future, dedicate my site wholly to the subject of autocracy in general and the threat of Trump transforming the United States into one in specific. Effective immediately, my website's title is changed from "Relating to Humans" to...

Useful Idiot(s)

There is no doubt in my mind that Russia, at Putin's dictate, interfered in our election. There is no doubt in my mind he did it to undermine the confidence in our electoral process which would undermine our ability as a nation to hold other nations, specifically Russia, accountable for their less that democratic practices.

Putin’s Puppets

If you have to wonder if it's you I'm calling an apologist for defending Putin and his attacks on our sovereignty to better enable Trump to continue to deny any claim that his Russian puppet master hacked the election, then the answer is yes.

Ah, nothing like the smell of Trump and his supporters’ hypocrisy in the morning*…

....provided one enjoys the smell of BS. I mean, I love the fact that Melania Trump is in court today to attend a scheduling hearing for a defamation case to challenge the claim that she worked as a prostitute prior to her eventual gig as First "Lady." But, that's not the hypocritical point I want …

Silence is Consent

Because I proudly worked in the Intelligence Community for nearly thirty years before catching a nasty cold called leukemia, out of a sense of duty and obligation I rarely discuss publicly matters that involve it. However, because of my complete and utter disdain for Trump's ascendency to the presidency...

So it goes*…

Donald Trump attended the Army v. Navy football game yesterday - one of the oldest and most celebrated rivalries in all of U.S. sports. As a retired navy veteran, I'm sad to say that Army beat the Navy, something that hasn't happened since 2001. #blametrump *Pretty awesome that I using Vonnegut's fmaous asterisk to make …

Conflicted

Well, I guess one way to get us to forget about the massive conflict of interest Trump will have as president due to his entanglement within his bizarre web of businesses is to distract us with the massive conflict of interest his Secretary of State would have if he were to name Rex Tillerson to …

Due to the current political climate, I’d like to draw your attention to…
