My wife and I have been struggling in recent days to not mention the name of our new "leader" at all during our waking hours (we can't help it if we shout it out during a nightmare), especially not in combination with the word "President," and especially not first thing in the morning, as it disrupts our appetite for breakfast. I was the first offender this morning. So, we're considering using a market mechanism to reduce the occurrence of this profanity: we fine ourselves a dollar for each time one of us utters his name, and twice that if uttered in combination with the word, "President."

I let his name slip this morning after hearing that the "<censored> transition team" had requested that the Army loan them some anti-aircraft guns and some tanks for the inaugural parade. It reminded me of those parade's in North Korea and other sad little nations run by narcissistic dictators. So, I suggested that we should refer to OUR dictator as "Kim Jong-<censored>." My wife tells me she heard him referred to as "Hair Führer" (or was it "furor"?).

What if millions of people all agreed to fine themselves in this manner (whatever they could afford ... maybe as little as 25 cents each time) and then send the accumulation periodically to some worthy resistance organization, one that brings lawsuits (like Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund, ACLU or NRDC, etc)?

Like Father Guido Sarducci's 25 cent fine for the venal sin of masturbation, "that a'one could really add up!"

Your post is very timely and interesting, glad to see I'm not alone at trying to block out the ugliness of what's just happened. I refuse to listen to any statements by Drumpf, because I know whatever he just said could change tomorrow, plus personally he' s the embodiment of everything in a person I can't stand. I have no doubt all but his die hard sociopaths who love him, everyone else who voted for him has buyers remorse. Hopefully , the democrats ,public backlash and the courts can tie him up for the next 24 months and by then the democrats will have done their own house cleaning and muster an army of new fresh recruits and take back the senate and house of representatives and basically hog tie his administration thill it runs out.

zapdam, I hope you're right.

Hair Fuhrer looks very unwell. I'm beginning to believe that the strain of the office is already (after three days!) starting to get to him.

What could be more devastating to an obsessive compulsive narcissist than a constant stream of criticism and ridicule from an aroused populace and an abused media establishment becoming more hostile toward him with every passing day.

Yeah, all that criticism during the campaign really got to him. It helped get him elected to be president.

I Like it.

That's how we got him. Eyes on screens every time this abomination (bombs our nation and) has its horrid "Voldemort" name spoken. It is absolutely as offensive as the most profane curses imaginable. If "our" corrupt for-profit television can profit from his disgusting existence why can't we build a resistance using the same?

How did we get from Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock and a Moon Landing to this empty place? {try to explain it without evoking another TV personality; Ronnie Raygunn}.

Trump claims and has doubled down several times that 3 to 5 million illegal aliens voted illegally and that is why he lost the popular vote. I demand a total recount or overturn the elections and have another election. This is based on his statements.

I'm not talking what got him elected. I'm talking about what will push him over the edge into a mental breakdown.

How childish. It looks like many, many peiole on the left have been driven so mad by the election that they think by not mentioning his name, (or "fining" those that use his name), he will be harmed.

He is the President. Get over it.

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt.
