Fat unattractive LOSER Donald John Trump is everything he hates--and everything YOU hate! Lobbyist. College-educated. Elitist. Secular. Freeloader. Deadbeat. Corrupted by Big Money. Outsourced YOUR job to China, Mexico, Bangladesh...
Greetings, fellow Dot Calm Readers, Freedom Fighters, and Truth Crusaders!
Today, I'm hoping my Tea Party Christian friends will read this post.
Listen, I know you love Donald Trump.
I know that he resonates with you because he hates and mocks all the same people you do. Nasty women. Uppity Blacks. Filthy Mexicans. Evil Muslims. Handicapped people. Poor people. The gays. All those icky people you wish would just go back into the shadows they came from. Yeah, I got all that.
I know that you admire him because he's rich. His daddy left him $40 million, and he's got maybe $100-250 million. You could easily achieve the same if you won the lottery. So I got that, too.
But what about all the other things you hate? You know. Lobbyists. college-educated people. Elitist people who think they're better than you are. Secular people who don't live by your Christian values. People who freeload off you, living like rock stars on your hard-earned tax dollars. People who don't pay their bills--who don't pay you when you work for them. People who claim to represent you but who take millions of dollars, like from Johnson & Johnson, and who are beholden to them while claiming right to your face that they don't take big money and are beholden only to you. Business elites who outsource your job to China or Mexico or Bangladesh...or who shut down your factory because they buy Chinese steel and aluminum instead of American.
People who tell you to your face that you're smart while treating you like you're an idiot.
People who claim they're just like you when they're really all these things you hate.
People who hate all the right people but who really hate you, too.
Riddle me this, Batman. Read about Donald Trump. Read everything he has done--he brags about being and doing everything I listed. Go ahead--read it...there's plenty of fodder in the headlines below, and there's even more in the recent archives of this blawg. Donald Trump has been a registered lobbyist. He's taken millions of dollars in insurance money for properties barely touched by storms, making your insurance bills go up. He's freeloaded off your taxes since at least 1995--probably since the 1970s. He's exploited teenage women decades younger than himself, not just for ogling but for sex--sexual trafficking, to be specific. He'd grope you or your wife or mother or sister or daughter and then deny it or brag about it, expecting his victim to be flattered. He's stolen from you by not paying you when you work for him--he's put your small businesses out of business and bilked you out of tens of thousands of dollars each to attend his non-university. He goes through wives faster than you go through clean underwear. He reamed Jeb! Bush a new asshole for taking donations from Johnson & Johnson heir Woody Johnson--and then turned around and started taking donations from Woody Johnson himself once he won the nomination (not to mention guzzling water during the third debate with Hillary Clinton after having criticized Marco Rubio for drinking water during the Republican primary debates...what's up with that?). Now...tell me: do you really think that Donald Trump, who has represented no one but himself from the moment he entered the public eye, is going to change his skunk stripe to represent you? Do you really think he's going to start paying you? Stop freeloading off of you? Cut you a break? Is it really worth it to you to have a president who will not only trash all the people you hate but you too in the bargain? Is it really worth it to destroy yourself just to get back at all those people? Is handing the nation over to a bully who will bully not only everyone you hate but you too really worth destroying the nation and the livability of the planet itself? Really?
If you really think so, then I have a request for you: whatever it is that you're smoking or drinking or snorting or popping, I DON'T want it.
And, if so, I can't say I'm too surprised. Donald Trump's attitude is pure vindictive scorched earth whenever he doesn't get his way--he's willing to bring down the entire Republican party. I guess it wouldn't be too surprising if you, like him, were willing to take down the entire nation and perhaps all of civilization because you haven't gotten your way for the past eight years. Maybe you and Donald Trump are cut from the same cloth.
If you're still with me, thanks for reading--it's more than I expected of you, and I'm super-impressed. Oh, and good luck with it all--you're going to need it.
And now for a few words for my "base"...
There's a Randi Rhodes video about the Al Smith dinner in the m00bies below. She opens with Donald Trump's awful attack on Hillary during the Al Smith charity dinner for needy children, but she then discusses a tiny little paragraph in The Guardian that is way too easy to miss: Roger Stone and Donald Trump are crowd-funding their own exit polls to be run by Mike Roman--the video is MUST SEE.
In other words, VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!
Do NOT sit this one out for ANY reason!
If we don't create a LANDSLIDE for Hillary and Democrats down the line, Trump and his minions WILL claim that the election was stolen from them!
This is scary AF!!!!!
Randi Rhodes's listeners are calling in to say that the Trump voters are turning out in force--we MUST counter them! We cannot afford to take ANY chances!!
My dad is partially disabled and, since I'm his only chauffer and since I work long crazy hours with a 2+ hour commute (especially if the trains are slow, which seems often to be the case), we went and voted absentee in person (early voting) on Saturday--in Dot Calm's honor. The election officials actually brought the absentee applications and ballots to us--curbside voting--so that my dear dad didn't hafta shuffle in and stand in line to vote.
Speaking of which, BRING PICTURE ID. If you don't have a driver's license for your own state, GET ONE NOW. If you have a passport instead, BRING THAT. Bring utility bills, birth certificates, voter registration cards...whatever it takes so that you can VOTE. Be sure to check your county's election website for details on which forms of ID they'll accept.
In our case, my dad kept me waiting half an hour after the polls opened before he was ready to leave the house, and he didn't bring his passport, which meant that we had to run home and get it because they wouldn't accept his old out-of-state driver's license. But other than that, it was as pleasant and painless of an experience as it could possibly be. The Democratic volunteers were there early with happy, smiling faces and sample ballots; one of them asked if we needed curbside voting and ran in and got the election official to come out and help us. And the election officials (there were two, since, as I said, we had to make two trips) could not have been nicer. In fact, they made sure that the machine could read both of our ballots before they dismissed us. If we'd had everything we'd needed, we'd have been done in less than half an hour--that beats socks offa standing in line for 1.5-2 hours on Election Day, as I've done in the past. My old, creaky knees hurt just thinking about it.
Even so, I'd have been happy to stand in such a line if that had been my only option. This election is too important to risk losing even one vote!!!!!
Hear me? WE CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE EVEN ONE VOTE!!!!!
I say that because of people like my coworker, who glibly says he'll vote for Trump based solely on the Republican reputation of spending more tax money on defense--my coworker, who claims to be apolitical, apparently has no fucking idea who Trump is, what Trump stands for, or what Trump can and will do if he gets into the White House. DoD may not survive long if that happens! In other words, there are people in this country who apparently live under rocks and thus plan to vote for Donald Trump out of sheer ignorance, and we must counter as many of their votes as possible--not to mention the third-party votes that will, as Keith Olbermann says below, act as votes for Trump by giving him fewer Hillary votes to counter.
If you are eligible to vote early, please go vote NOW.
Friends, we can't afford to risk the future of our country. If, like me, you lurve yourself some Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, then PLEASE vote for Hillary--there's no way we'll get anywhere close to progressive legislation if Trump gets in, but we're already halfway there if we get Hillary...we can catch our breath and start pushing her in the correct direction once she's in. I personally would rather see Donald "celebutante LOSER freeloader-in-thief-wannabe" Trump's political casket nailed shut with Liquid Nails, screws, bolts, and sturdy metal straps welded shut and then placed into eleventy-seven more similarly sealed political caskets like Russian nesting dolls than face the shitstorm of a trumper-tantrum that the douchebag orange fucksicle will raise if he doesn't lose by a YUGE landslide.
So, please--vote now if you can, and vote blue down the line! The future you save will be your own. Please and thank you.

Newt Gingrich's fight with Megyn Kelly reveals a gross, twisted logic about sexual assault
...If you read nothing else today, click through and read this article. It's a very thorough analysis that explains how Republicans conflate sexual assault with sex--a real eye-opener. No wonder Donald Trump denies attacking women by saying they're not attractive enough...
Newt Gingrich melts down on Fox over Trump spiral, calls Megyn Kelly "fascinated with sex"
...Well, now, isn't THAT ironic coming from a Republican? They're the most sex-obsessed things on two feet. All I can say is just imagine if Obama bragged about and then stood accused of half of what Donald Trump actually said and stands accused of. Ms. Kelly is absolutely right...the fact that Newt can't even answer the question like a sane, rational adult--the fact that he has to scream and bully rather than answer the damn question--tells you all you need to know: Donald Trump is guilty as hell of assaulting every woman who's come forward and likely at least as many more who did not, right down to the last alleged detail. If that were not true, Newt would not have been defensive. Defensiveness is the first resort of those who know they're wrong, just as projection is the first resort of those who are too ashamed of their own behavior to own up to it and take responsibility. Something ol' Newtie would have done well to remember: Megyn Kelly experienced this filth herself at the hands of Roger Ailes, so it stands to reason that this is personal for her--she genuinely wants to know whether Donald Trump as the Republican presidential candidate is a sexual predator or not. A fair question! It only goes to show how immature (at best) Newtie is that he can't even take on a serious question and answer it with the seriousness it's due. Sadly, he's a perfect representative for Donald Trump, who's no better.
The election isn't "rigged." These are the real threats on Election Day.

Why women are still voting for Trump, despite his misogyny
...Like I've said here before, it's because they don't have any self respect. In this article, that translates to wanting male protection. They've somehow fooled themselves into thinking that a man who wants only to prey on them is somehow going to protect them...a man who wants only to prey on the men in their lives is somehow going to protect those men so that they can protect their women.

We finally have an "artificial pancreas" for diabetes. But it's a letdown.
...This article pisses me the hell off. Based on how the article describes the device, I'd never call it an "artificial pancreas." At best, it's barely a glorified pump. As a control theorist, I can think of several ways I'd attack the problem of controlling insulin delivery so that it truly is automated...linked to the actual blood sugar levels that need to be controlled. To me, someone just isn't doing their job. To me, the real challenge is how to provide cheaper insulin. Although synthetic human insulin seems to be the preferred treatment deze daze, I wonder whether there might not be a cheaper approach that might be worth the trade-offs. I once read in Cell magazine where a research team placed cells from rat livers into glass tubes and implanted them into rabbits from which the livers had been removed to see whether the rat liver cells, protected from rejection by the glass, would actually function within the rabbits' bodies. They did, as proven by increased levels of liver enzymes and by-products. So I wonder whether a similar approach might be used with pig pancreas cells, since pig hormones are so close to ours and since pig insulin was used before we learned how to synthesize human insulin in the lab using recombinant DNA--in fact, some doctors still prescribe pig insulin over the synthetic (I can understand why--I have MUCH better luck with Armour thyroid, which is pig thyroid, compared to synthetic, which makes me super-sick...bleah). I also wonder what it would take for me to find work in biomedical engineering, having been in DoD my whole career--so far, DoD has been the only gig in town with any dough. *sigh*

We wouldn't be having this conversation on the Internet...you wouldn't be reading my blawg on your smart phone...we wouldn't have GPS...and we certainly wouldn't be talking about synthesizing human insulin in the laboratory using the human genome. How many times over do you think cancer could have been cured if all the children in the world with an aptitude for science, including fundamentalist Muslims and Christians, had been exposed to and allowed to study it?

Help stop the execution of an Iranian woman
After a grossly unfair trial, Zeinab Sekaanvand, an Iranian woman, faces imminent execution for the murder of her abusive husband — a crime she says she did not commit.
She could be hanged within days.
Amnesty is campaigning on behalf of individuals facing execution like Zeinab. Please support our work. Make an urgent donation.
Phillip Luther, Amnesty's Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa says, "This is an extremely disturbing case. Not only was Zeinab Sekaanvand under 18 years of age at the time of the crime, she was also denied access to a lawyer and says she was tortured after her arrest by male police officers through beatings all over her body."
Zeinab Sekaanvand was 17-years-old when she was arrested for the murder of her husband, whom she had married at the age of 15.
She was held for the next 20 days in the police station, where she has said she was beaten by male police officers. She "confessed" to them that she stabbed her husband, who had been abusive.
Zeinab was denied access to a lawyer during her entire pre-trial detention period and only met her state-appointed lawyer for the first time at her final trial session. It was at this session that she retracted her "confession."
She told the court that her husband's brother, who she said had raped her several times, was responsible for the murder and had coerced her into confessing.
Please support our work advocating for people like Zeinab who face execution and other grave human rights abuses. Make an urgent donation.
On Saturday, AT&T announced plans to buy Time Warner. That's the giant company that owns CNN, HBO, TBS, TNT and more. Stop this merger!
AT&T is an enormous media, telecom and internet gatekeeper with a horrible track record of overcharging you, limiting your choices and spying on you.
It's still fighting Net Neutrality. It helps the government spy on people by turning over its customer records to the NSA. It tries to stop communities from building their own broadband networks. It's a member of ALEC, the corporate-backed lobbying group that's pushed legislation like pro-fracking, voter-suppression and “stand your ground” bills that disproportionately harm people of color.
And now AT&T wants to get even bigger.
This merger must be stopped.
AT&T wants to buy Time Warner in a deal valued at $85 billion. This would be one of the largest media mergers ever.
Time Warner owns CNN, HBO, TBS and TNT, major movie franchises like Harry Potter and Batman, DC Comics … the list goes on. AT&T just swallowed up DirecTV in another massive merger. This deal would combine one of the nation's largest phone and satellite-TV companies with a media content behemoth.
Tell Washington policymakers: Block this merger!
Deals like this don't benefit you: They just line the pockets of overpaid media executives (the Time Warner CEO could walk away with nearly $400 million) and lead to job losses for working people. These kinds of mergers hike prices for internet access and put up bigger barriers to entry for content creators — shutting out independent voices and people of color who have been locked out of the traditional media system.
This merger would create a media powerhouse unlike anything we've ever seen before. AT&T would control mobile and wired internet access, cable channels, movie franchises, a film studio and more.
That means AT&T would control internet access for hundreds of millions of people and the content they view, enabling it to prioritize its own offerings and use sneaky tricks to undermine Net Neutrality.
This merger would give one bad company way too much power.
Urge policymakers to block the AT&T/Time Warner merger.
Let's send a strong message from day one to whoever will be in charge in Washington next year. Massive mergers like this — and the billions of dollars they waste — never work out for the rest of us. We need to draw the line here.
Thanks for all that you do—
Candace, Craig, Matt, Joe and the rest of the Free Press team
P.S. Don't let AT&T become even more powerful than it already is: Tell policymakers to stop this deal today.

From UltraViolet--Judge John McKeon sentences man to only 43 days in jail for repeatedly raping his 12-yr-old daughter...WTF?!??!??
The rapist pleaded guilty to repeatedly assaulting his daughter, and the prosecution recommended a 25-year sentence but Judge McKeon completely ignored that recommendation.2 Instead, he sent a message that this kind of sexual abuse can happen with impunity.
Tell the Montana Judicial Standards Commission: "Kick Judge John McKeon off the bench without his pension."
Sadly, this isn't an isolated case--only 3% of rapists face jail time. It is no surprise that less than 50% of rapes are reported.5 Judges like McKeon make this problem worse. That's why he has to go.
The impeachment effort is being led by a group that formed around this case, Justice4Montana. Their main goal is to prevent Judge McKeon from collecting retirement.6
If we do nothing, Judge McKeon will retire in less than 30 days with a comfortable pension from the state. We need to speak out now so he has to answer for this failure of justice.
Will you demand the Montana Judicial Standards Commission impeach Judge McKeon?

From CPD Action--STOP the CEO bonus loophole NOW!
From: Brian Kettenring, CPD Action
Date: October 13, 2016
Subject: Close the CEO bonus tax loophole
Last week, Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf announced his resignation after he and the bank faced months of scrutiny for opening nearly 2 million fraudulent bank accounts. Stumpf’s punishment for resigning amid a major scandal? Oh, just $124 million in walkaway money.
Just a month ago, Stumpf did the unthinkable: he aligned Republicans and Democrats in their disdain for his leadership of Wells Fargo. Over two separate testimonies. Elizabeth Warren even called for Stumpf’s “gutless leadership” to be criminally investigated.
This community has been integral in keeping the pressure up on big banks for years. We appreciate your support and ask you to keep the pressure mounting – tell the Senate to end the performance pay loophole so many Wall Street executives utilize.
The “performance pay” tax loophole allows corporations to deduct executives’ “performance” bonuses from their taxes. At the height of Wells Fargo's most recent scandal from 2012 and 2015, Stumpf received nearly $155 million in tax-deductible performance pay. That means taxpayers paid nearly $54 million of Stumpf’s compensation when his company was defrauding millions of customers.
Stumpf isn’t alone. After the financial crisis and bank bailouts in 2008, financial institutions like Citibank, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and more gave themselves nearly $20 billion in bonuses.
Join CPD Action and our friends Americans for Tax Fairness to demand the end of 'performance pay' loopholes now and pass the Stop Subsidizing Multimillion Dollar Corporate Bonuses Act (S. 1127).
The legislation, introduced by Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), would cap 'performance pay' tax deductability at $1 million for every employee. Closing the CEO performance pay loophole would save taxpayers nearly $50 billion over 10 years, according to Congress' Joint Tax Committee. Lastly, closing the loophole would discourage the reckless, risky behavior that led to our financial crisis in the first place. Sign our petition to close the “performance pay” loophole for good.
From Emily Cain via Dianne Russell--Help take back the House and put Bernie Sanders in as chair of the Senate Budget Committee!
Donald Trump is imploding. Paul Ryan is freaking out that Bernie Sanders could become chair of the Senate Budget Committee.
And now there's even talk that Republicans could lose the House of Representatives.
But control of the House of Representatives will be decided by just a few key districts, and one of the most important is Maine's 2nd Congressional district, where my friend Emily Cain is running against Bruce Poliquin, Wall Street's favorite Republican.
Will chip in to help Emily win this key district and take back the House of Representatives?
A month ago, polls showed Emily down by 5-10 points. But the race has completely changed in the last few weeks, and now we're getting polls showing Emily tied or even pulling ahead.
The reason is clear: Voters are sick and tired of Republican obstruction, and Bruce Poliquin is a classic example of why Washington is broken.
Political experts list this race as one of the very closest and most important in the country, and your donation can put Emily over the top. Will you you chip in today?
Yes, I'll chip in to help Emily win this key district and take back the House of Representatives.

- Democrats have a good shot to take back the Senate, giving Hillary the votes she needs to confirm her pick to replace Antonin Scalia and create the first liberal Supreme Court majority in a generation
- Even the House—so expertly gerrymandered by Republicans after the 2010 wave election—is in play, with President Obama and Hillary Clinton launching major new offensives to return Nancy Pelosi to the speaker's chair, an upset that could make the entire Democratic Party platform possible
