Caligula: The third of Rome’s emperors, Caligula (formally known as Gaius) achieved feats of waste and carnage during his four-year reign (A.D. 37-41) unmatched even by his infamous nephew Nero. The son of a great military leader, he escaped family intrigues to take the throne, and entertain his personal and fiscal excesses.

By now it should be abundantly clear to anyone with a brain that Republicans – and the Republican Party – don’t give a shit about most of us here in this country. In fact, they view us all as impediments that stand in the way of their amassing more wealth as they destroy our land, air, water and food by ridding us of those pesky regulations that have been put in place to protect us from criminally selfish short-sighted people. People like them.

They are so self serving that they are able to ignore the fact that life goes on after they are dead. So absent a cosmic view of life as to render them worthy of our abject disgust at any pretense to humanity they may claim. So self seeking in their willful destruction of our laws, our health, our environment as to be deserving of our contempt.

By firing the man investigating him and his Russian pals this bat shit nutcase would-be king in the Republican White House has said “fuck you” to all of us. This should be a clue to us all as to how Republicans really feel about the citizens of this country. Witness how many of these vile Republicans in Congress are still on the side of this crazy ignorant arrogant criminal!

How selfish and short-sighted are Republicans? Just consider: The Republican actions vis-a-vis their denial of climate change and the resulting dismantling of our environmental regulations show they don’t even care that their own children will have to live in the very same environment that they are now willfully destroying.

And consider: After depriving 24 million people of healthcare these Republican shit stains thought it just fine and dandy to hold a self-congratulation party in the Rose Garden – and fuck whatever we might think about it! We do not matter.

As they always have, this party of greedy selfish puppets is putting Republicanism ahead of their country. I hope the disrespect they show for us all – their complete disregard for our Constitution and our laws – and the destructive actions of these horrible small people in the racist, xenophobic, homophobic, “God-fearing” hypocritical Republican Party, rather than making us shake our heads and wonder, are instead making us all good and angry.
