What? We've Been Fucked by the GOP Again?

This absolutely useless and miserable inbred failure of a Republican Congress, has once again and right on schedule caved on everything in the entire federal budget.

Say it ain't so Joe.  (*sniff...sniff*) Say it ain't so.

Yeah, kid.  I'm afraid it is.

This bill funded every major Democratic policy priority with no meaningful limitations on a single illegal, abusive, or harmful executive action taken by the president. It contained no limitations or reforms to Obamacare, Planned Parenthood funding, Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate on the states, sanctuary cities, or DACA amnesty. What was particularly disturbing about this blank check is that the timing of the budget deadline coincided with two new harmful unilateral policies of the Obama administration: the giveaway of oversight over internet IP addresses to a foreign entity and a net increase in refugee admission for the new fiscal year — all on top of the existing increase in refugees from the Middle East during a time of grave homeland security concerns.

The budget bill also reflected Obama’s spending priorities instead of the spending figures reflected in the Republican budget. It wasted $1.1 billion on Zika funding that was unnecessary and funded Planned Parenthood with those extra funds. While one expects compromise with divided government, this blank check was truly breathtaking in completely reflecting Democrat values — as if Republicans had no control over Congress.

If you were expecting anything different from this pack of cowards, you don't know the Republican Party.

Disappointed, but not surprised, no. What's the saying? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. But this is what, #2,893? Or thereabouts, anyways.

I wonder how long it will take the glorious and mighty God Emperor to redress so many wrongs. And with such things as the control of IP addresses, once we've lost that, would we ever be able to get it back?

No, control will never go back, the internet is going to split, there will be the western Internet and somebody else's Internet, expect massive censorship some of it more evident in some cases than others, expect domains to be taken away from their rightful owners.

And expect a new dark Internet on top of the western internet.

Yes, it is that bad.
