The Trump administration is proposing a rule that would limit Americans’ access to food stamps, reportedly removing more than 3 million people from the federal program. The plan would eliminate automatic enrollment in food stamps for poor families who receive welfare benefits. – via CBSnews.com

Alas, so few have the gifts of discernment that Ms. O’Connor had – thus we are showered with freaks, morons, idiots – you know – dickheads.

But just as dependable as the daily barrage of climate engineering of the weather by other assorted madmen, the gifts of insanity from these dickheads keep their ever-present knocking upon our noggins, just like lollipops and candy canes falling from the sky.

Such dickhead delight!

The plague of horse manure that has been dumped upon humankind from the beginning of this circus from freaks we choose not to recognize as such, continues to provide a balm of suffering that most have become accustomed to, and sadly, rarely stand against.
