The Math’s AfterMath

`

Donald J. Trump’s latest U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial begins today. While these absolutely vital to America’s survival proceedings could last up to several weeks, we already know the outcome.

Spoiler Alert! Albeit wrongfully so, once again, Trump wins and America loses.

The devil is in the details.

Let’s do the math. In spite of the damning evidence against that seditious bastard, by trial’s end, at best, we can expect only 55 Senators (50 Democrats plus 5 Republicans) to deem Tyrant Trump the existential threat to America / the world that he was and STILL IS.

And those 55 votes will fall far short of the 67 total required to convict him / forever disqualify him from seeking / attaining high elective office.

In other words, up to 45 of ANTI-AMERICAN Trump’s ANTI-AMERICAN, co-conspirator senators will see absolutely nothing wrong with Donald’s post Election Day, ANTI-AMERICAN conduct.

Again, the devil is in the details.

For over two months, Trump kept on groundlessly grousing; relentlessly, ferociously bleating and Tweeting about what, in essence, was (still is) NON-EXISTANT voter fraud; so much so that via his 01/06/21, seditious, specious speech he easily infuriated his toady, devotee voter base; whipped them into a frenzy; mutated them into his private army of homicidal, domestic terrorists, who, on his behalf, went on a rampage; stormed the U.S. Capitol to maim, murder and burn Democracy / America down to the ground.

And the United States of America almost died.

Hmm, let’s do the aftermath. One wonders if these radical Republican Senators can fully comprehend how fraught with danger it is for them to establish lawlessness / insurrection as legal precedent.

Not that I’d ever want that to happen.

Not that our present President would ever want that to happen, either.

But damn it, if there’s nothing wrong with what Donald J. Trump had done to tear down America, could not Joe Biden also take the law into his own hands, you know, to build up America?

Yet again, the devil is in the details.

Could he not declare martial law and dismiss an obstructionist legislative body and judiciary, too?

Just sayin’…

Pillow Talk

`

Check out the straight poop re the origins of the adage “Politics makes strange bedfellows” or its close variant “Political interests can bring together people who otherwise have little in common”

“This saying is adapted from a line in the play The Tempest, by William Shakespeare: ‘Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.’ It is spoken by a man (Trinculo) who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster.”

dictionary dot com

Conforming all of that above wisdom to tempestuous, contemporary times, we discover the two weirdos, the hungover MyPillow guy, CEO Mike Lindell, waking up, “the morning after”, next to the asleep at the switch monster, the one and (thank god) only drunk on power Donald J. Trump.

Indeed, during the waning days of the failed Trump admin, foolhardy Mikey visited the White House for the express purpose of validating Donny’s preposterous, unfounded, unsubstantiated delusions that “stuffed” absentee ballots and rigged voting machines had denied him a second term.

During their political trysts (sleepovers?), these two strange bedfellows engaged in subversive pillow talk to discuss their shared Anti-American agenda; e.g. how Donny could “easily” declare Martial Law to muck up free elections, disenfranchise multiple millions of voters, deny the legitimately elected Joe Biden the presidency, utterly destroy democracy and, in the end, tear the U.S. Constitution asunder and overthrow America.

It’s entirely possible that Lindell had actually been the catalyst who further emboldened the fake prez; to the point where Trump opted to stage his (fortunately failed) coup d’état on January 6, 2021.

It was shortly thereafter, that Lindell who, up to that moment, had been running his successful pillow business, discovered, the hard way, that whatever Donny touches always turns to shit.

Indeed, what Mikey had failed to realize is that the mashup of pillow manufacturing and political machinating can only be catastrophic.

Or, to flesh that out, the blow back, here, is how home improvement businesses will no longer stock MyPillow products, which discerning, principled, real American shoppers will no longer purchase. After all, who the F would ever show respect for a traitor who tried to overthrow America?

At least for the time being, Lindell is currently profiteering off the radical right wing noise machine. These disseminators of ferocious conspiracy theories, masquerading as news, are still welcoming Mikey.

But, seeing how the duly pissed off voting machine manufacturers have been routinely slapping lawsuits against Newsmax, OAN and FOX et al (as well as their dumb as a stump, Trump suck up talking heads), Mikey could, rightfully so, soon be going down with the shipwrecked Donny.

Yep, it’s really as simple as that!

`

For the life of me, I cannot begin to fathom why some folks still feel cultlike devotion for a particular, peculiar, narcissistic, Fascistic fusspot.

While I seriously doubt that any of you, my readers, DO fall into that category, nonetheless, I’d still like to explain why I, most emphatically, DO NOT!

Anyway, who knows? One or two of the misguided might, someday, stumble onto this site. That said, let’s roll…

Long blog short, authoritarian rule affects me, not unlike that sinking, sickening feeling one gets when…

  • During that once in a lifetime job interview, you get the first whiff that tells you that you forgot to use your antiperspirant / deodorant.
  • Your city council rezones your lifelong neighborhood to allow for the construction of a new sewage treatment plant.
  • The very first time you set foot outdoors wearing new jogging shoes, you step into a pile of fresh dog shit.

In other words, Fascism Stinks!

Look, I do get it. Some folks do not feel complete without a dictator dicking up their existences. Note how I didn’t say, “… dicking up their lives.”

But, damn it, not all of us would ever want to exist that way. We really want to live our lives to the fullest! And damn it, you cannot… correction… must not ever force your odious governmental preference upon the rest of humanity.

So, how can everyone peacefully co-exist?

Well, those of you, who are deeply into subservience need to learn to sate your boot licking urges privately. To e.g. that…

  • Seek, find and perhaps even wed a life partner, best described as a till-death-do-you-part control freak.

Not ready, yet, to make such a lengthy commitment, you say?

  • Well, in that case, why not try working your way up (or is that down?) by trying out a control freak boss?

Yep, it’s really as simple as that!

Subversiveness and Subservience

`

On January 6, 2021, Donald J. Trump ordered his private army of domestic terrorists (a.k.a. right wing radicals, Klansmen, Nazis and boneheaded bootlicker oddballs) to storm the U.S. Capitol building. In essence…

The (in title only) President of the United States of America had actually ordered HIS attack AGAINST the United States of America.

In better, bygone days, by now, unified Americans’ righteous indignation would’ve demanded that any insurrection inciting president, bare minimum, be speedily impeached, convicted and banned, forevermore, from seeking / attaining all future elective office. Also, the accompanying murdering, maiming and malicious destruction of property would’ve resulted in a slew of criminal court cases where returned guilty verdicts and prompt sentencing would lodge the X-prez within the nearest maximum security prison or, in lieu of that, a mental institution.

Yet, here America (barely?) stands one month later. Only the subversiveness and subservience of Trump’s cohorts and co-conspirators allow him to still remain at large; to still revel within his grotesquely gaudy, golden lifestyle; to still fuel his threats to seek reelection come 2024.

While Trump’s U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial is slated to commence next week, the only anticipated, unified righteous indignation will involve the feelings of 50 Democrats and, at best, only 5 Republicans.

Alas, 55 votes will fall far short of the 67 necessary to convict Trump / deep six his delusions for a political resurrection. While the magnitude of his treason should result in 100 votes to convict, I won’t be holding my breath.

The unacceptable reality check? Trump’s virtually guaranteed, totally indefensible acquittal could / likely will green light his re-ascendancy; hammer the final nails into our homeland’s coffin; bury Liberty, Democracy and the American Dream.

I don’t know what is more effing depressing here; Donald J. Trump’s attempted coup d’état, itself, or the fact that, once again, there he’ll sit, laughing his fat Fascist fanny off from the knowledge that he can always do whatever he fucking pleases with impunity.

Hell, even if he never wins another election again, what of the countless Fascist wannabes who’ll, someday (likely soon) seek the presidency? Those who’ll be far more efficient at overthrowing America than Trump had been? Who’ll view Trump’s “get out of jail free card” as a legal precedent for establishing their own…

Anything Goes, You Can’t Touch Me, Anti-American Agenda

Long sigh. Folks, you wouldn’t believe the number of times, this past month, that I’ve attempted / failed to adequately express these sentiments; all the strength it took to fight off my “Oh, WTF is the use?” mentality.

I mean, how the hell does one even begin to blog when the content could best be summed up in two words:

THE END!

Fortune Cookie Blog (Dodo Doo-Doo)

`

Whenever harmful, hateful, hurtful, hoax loaded content rears its ugly head
in the form of Tweets, it’s akin to posters baring their ugly rear ends; taking
dumps in public. Seeing how both indecent exposure and public defecation
are against the law, when Twitter bans such violators of their Terms of Use,
it is to always promote ordinary decency; not impose inordinate censorship!

Black History’s (too short) Month

`

As a man who’d never claim to be the brightest star in the cosmos, will someone please enlighten?

Why does something as vital as raising awareness re the accomplishments and the plight of the black (wo)man occur during a month which, at best, lasts ONLY 29 days?
