I Think We Know What Side He's On

This picture has nothing to do with anything but I like it. So there you are- your nature picture of the day from Ms. Moon.

Now. So.
After reading that obviously not-written-by-him statement yesterday (I was amazed he knew how to say "egregious") as if he had a gun held to his back, DT showed his true colors today at a press conference saying once again that the violence in Charlottesville was the fault of not only the alt-right, but also the "alt-left and" we'd know that if the media had reported the truth of the matter.

How many times can this man fuck himself in the butt and still remain president? He's pissed off everyone BUT the white supremacists, Nazis, and KKK. Those guys are thrilled.

You know what I think? I think he knows that the result of Russia investigation is going to be that he goes down in flames and probably ends up in prison and this is all just a smokescreen.
Not that I don't think he's a white supremacist himself. I do.
Honestly, I don't know whether it's the smokescreen thing, that he's evil, that he's delusional, that he's insane, that he's dumb as a bag of hammers, or all of that.
Probably all of that.
And anyone who voted for him is at least delusional, dumb as a bag of hammers, and insane.
I'll leave "evil" up to the individual situation.

Well, as Hank said on Facebook today, "That happened."

He also posted a picture of me from when I was about six.

Actually, two pictures. Well, two prints, one picture.

The roaches have obviously been at it. 
As I said in my comment to the picture, "Who the hell was doing my hair?"
I think that the answer might be, "No one." 
I can remember jamming those plastic headbands on my head to push my hair back, the little teeth gripping my scalp in such a satisfactory way. 
And what a good look. 

What else is on the big wheel to talk about? Nothing at all compared to what's going on in DC. I mean, I shelled a bunch of peas and I picked more. I am running out of room for eggs. The roosters, as we speak, are calling in the hens and trying to fuck them all. I had to go to town again today to sign some papers. I went to the library and checked out a biography of Hemingway. I am making field peas and okra and tomatoes and cornbread for dinner. My thoughts are as scattered and unfocused as those crepe myrtle blossoms in that top picture but not nearly as pleasing. I want to cry and I want to laugh and I want desperately to wake up and find that Hillary Clinton is the president. 

I recommend that you go and read Angella's post from tonight if you haven't done so already. 

I want to say that this video may seem to have nothing, nothing at all to do with what's going on these days but I want to say that if you watch it you will see that it does. 

Love and respect. Coming together for the joy of art. Defining pride as that which is earned.
The blues. And maybe most of all- honesty.

Something like that.
I don't know.
I don't know shit.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I think it is surprising that so many didn't seem to know which side he was on all along, since I thought it to be evident long before this... and that even more still aren't convinced, because honestly, how much clearer could it possibly be!!!???!?

    1. I think they knew and secretly agreed. I'm sorry but that's what I think.

  2. oh Mary, this country is truly in deep shit. I despise that man, I loathe him, I can't even listen to him speak. 9 more rallies planned for this weekend in liberal cities. I am so far behind in reading your posts, in reading everyone's posts because I can't my eyes off this fucking train wreck. well, I'm driving into the city today to take my grandgirl to Costco for supplies before she leaves for college on Saturday, my grandson was kicked out of the house last night by his father who is being a total asshole so I have plenty of other hit to deal with today.

    1. Well, you know how I feel. I despise the man too but I feel like he's merely the horrible pustule which is the symptom of a plague.
      I'm sorry your grandson got kicked out of the house. Family can be so...well, distracting at least. I hope you and your grandgirl have some fun.

  3. The white supremacists have been emboldened. There is another march this weekend in Atlanta. Friends of mine are flying down to be part of the anti-facist rally, aka the Antifa rally. A new word. I pray for their safety but i know we cannot allow ourselves to be frightened away, or the forces of hate will win. I love that little girl, her sweet earnest face. She grew up to be so good, and she gave the world some seriously good and thoughtful humans. We need more like her, and them.

    1. I keep saying this but I think it's true- Trump not only emboldens, he encourages. That Nazi son-of-a-bitch.
      And oh, honey. I was trying so hard to be a good girl. Thank you.

  4. I think you're right -- Trump is all of those things.

    We need a Martin Luther King, Jr. Someone to lead the resistance and do it in a way that doesn't add fuel to the flames. It would probably be a suicidal undertaking.

    1. John Lennon pointed out that those who seem to come to preach peace are the ones who end up getting shot.
      And then he got shot.

  5. I think there was another picture that was torn off of those, hence the ragged edge. Please bring me lots of eggs tomorrow. All the eggs. Dozens of eggs. Please, can I have three dozen eggs?

    1. Well, maybe two and a half. Let me see what I get today.

  6. Deranged assholes everywhere. It's a plague.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
