SO YOU KNOW YOU HATE TRUMP, NOW WHAT? When Barack Obama was elected there was a ground swell of opposition to the notion of Big Government and Bigger Spending. Those fears were not misplaced, as Obama oversaw the single greatest expansion of the National Debt EVER at 7.9 TRILLION and change. Now the other team is outraged because they are afraid Trump is going to slap the dames in chains to their ovens. So what are they doing? Using the Tea Party as a model. Which is hilarious to me on many levels, because the Tea Party was NOT done from the top down AT ALL. I know this because I was active in the Tea Party movement for a long time. But I'm going to share some high points for you today from the handy manual on how to be a better Anti-Trumper.

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER Chelsea Clinton wrote a book and it's a massive flop.
CAN WE STOP POINTING TO DIVORCE RECORDS AS SOME SORT OF SMOKING GUN? Divorce is nasty business and during a divorce accusations are wielded as weapons. And many times they are simply accusations designed to get a better settlement for the aggrieved spouse. In the case of Andy Puzder, who may or may not be the next Labor Secretary, there were accusations made by his now ex-wife on an episode of Oprah that have now been unearthed to prove Puzder is a horrible person. Except his ex wife retracted those things YEARS ago and no one in today's media seems to have noticed.
FEELING BLUE ABOUT YOURSELF? You need to watch this and do what Tom Shullie says.
IF YOU DON'T WANT TRUMP WINES, DON'T BUY THEM. BUT THEN.... If you are a progressive, it's not enough to make that choice, you must prevent everyone else from being ABLE to make that choice for themselves. Hence the move to boycott regional grocery store chain Wegman's. Why? Because they have the nerve to offer choice to their customers. Guess what? If the wine doesn't sell, they will take it off the shelves. It's not that hard, it's math.
SORRY VEGANS, YOUR MONEY IS FULL OF MURDER IN THE UK!

The British Treasury is saying sorry, but not sorry enough to stop the roll out.
