Readers, I have a broken arm and it such a pain in  the butt to type with one hand. Instead of writing anything, I am reading dozens of books from across the spectrum which I will report back on when I get this fckng cast of my arm.

Peace out,

Welcome to post racial ‘Murica. Guess we can shut down the whole NAACP thing now.

Because there is no greater celebration of a nation than public mockery of its duly elected leader, an entire town of racist assholes policed by racist assholes had this really cool Independence Day parade. It happened in Norfolk, Nebraska (aka America’s outhouse), and featured an “Obama Presidential Library” float where the “library” was an outhouse

It didn’t include a noose, so there’s that.

The wooden-like shitter was on a flatbed trailer being pulled by a blue pickup truck (If they had any imagination the pickup would be “Rollin’ Coal”). The words “Obama Presidential Library” posted across its side,  because that is some quality humor. The eerie figure that stood outside guarding the structure was dressed in overalls and stood next to a walker. The ghoul’s head and hands were green and “zombie lie” ;and there were miniature American flags affixed on top of the float and on the pickup as well.
