Find Something New?

Internet Forum threads do risk getting overlooked.

Case in Point: YouTube commentator Margret Q’s gem…

“I cannot tell a lie.” – George Washington
“I cannot tell the truth.” – Donald Trump
“I cannot tell the difference.” – Trump voter

If this is Ms. Q’s intellectual property, she must repurpose this text as a bumper sticker and/or billboard sign.

All she’d need to add is…

Elect Joe Biden / Kamala Harris

A brilliant Bumper Sticker / Signage career awaits you, Ms. Q!

Hmm.. what a shame my pep talk will wind up overlooked, too. This could’ve added a bit of depth to the two-dimensional Ivanka Trump’s insipid, let’em eat cake, jewel encrusted, “find something new”, window dressing message to the masses.

Principled Hannah Watters is Smarter than Her Principal

It’s no yuge secret that the reality defying, science denying, mucked up in the head Donald J. Trump, has been pissing away uncounted hours, daily, just to coverup his monumental bungling of the coronavirus crisis… a.k.a. the pandemic of his own making.

Indeed, the public must never know the truth that a mindless microbe has totally outwitted that unwise nitwit, who fancies himself otherwise. Yep, he’s even dubbed himself “the stable genius”. Uh-huh… whatever…

Working tirelessly towards that end… perhaps the end of the world as we’ve known it… he will…

Show the Door to ALL underlings who flat-out refuse to actively, sycophantically participate in his feeble, pathetic attempts to downplay All-Things-Corona.

Show the Door to ALL, who do not mindlessly echo his rampaging delusions… i.e., subscribe to his Pollyannaish magical thinking that COVID-19 is no worse than a case of the sniffles, that’ll just go away in a couple of days???

Alas, we now discover…

Show the Door vengeance does not stop at the White House exit signs. Nope, that extends all the way down to the Dallas, Georgia public schools.

The following copy and paste of the CNN YouTube website’s blurb will tell the rest of the story… a most disturbing story…

“CNN’s Boris Sanchez talks to North Paulding High School student Hannah Watters after it was announced that the school will switch to virtual learning for two days after at least nine students tested positive for Covid-19. Watters was briefly suspended after her photo of a crowded hallway gained traction online. The decision was later reversed.”

“Kinda weird isn’t it? Sorta like I’m human?”

Expounding on that headline, any self-deprecating words exiting Donald J.Trump’s mouth is more than sorta weird.

True, there he stands, larger than life, filming his Drew Carey Show cameo (circa mid-1997), playacting none other than HIMSELF and querying disparagingly. Hell, he’s even sporting his (even then) almost touching his crotch red tie!

Yep, that above paragraph’s Trumpian rundown is easy to buy into. Hell, “it is what it is.”

However, what is weirdly out of character is how he speaks onward to express lukewarm, sorta human sincerity and then extend generosity towards the everywoman / everyman working class. What a crying shame it’s ONLY Hollywood acting.

Hell, the Trump we know would ONLY behave in that manner, in real life, if such momentary largesse would buy him votes AND could simultaneously be written off as a charitable contribution… i.e., one that could be promptly and neatly itemized on his income tax Form 1040, Schedule A (which he’d never, ever release to the public like many past presidents have).

Seeing how Trump is not renown for ever poking fun at himself, his motivation for stepping before that bygone TV camera’s lens was none other than stroking his mindless ego… so much so, that he was likely oblivious to how he had, inadvertently, for a fleeting moment, behaved modestly and sorta human.

Just as he’s totally incapable of laughing at himself, he never laughs with the people he meets… only at them.

Hell, “it is what it is.”

Anyone in a shop-till-you-drop mood?

 

One would think that Confederate Prez Donny, who fancies himself the stable genius and consummate businessman, would be able to grasp onto the economic fundamentals… namely…

RULE #1: Unemployed, destitute grown-ups will not be in a let’s-shop-till-we-drop mood when [1] worried sick that COVID-19 will come home to roost [2] paying for the roof overhead and food on the table proves difficult, AND [3] the Fascist overthrow of America may already be a fait accompli.

That stark deficit of consumer confidence should come as no shocker to that science denier / autocrat who’s totally to blame for COVID-19’s physical and fiscal devastation and the dismantling of democracy.

Obviously, I cannot speak for everyone, but, under such grim circumstances, aside from paying for life’s bare essentials, the only way I’d ever go on a shopping spree is to [1] prepare for the worst by prearranging my own funeral and [2] hope for the best by booking a one way flight to the nearest progressive nation with outstretched, welcoming arms.

Pandemic Pandemonium Poem

 

Pandemic’s same old, new dawn; bad news stories playback
Trump’s truculence and treason; he bleats / Tweets his attack
I can’t resist online retorts; the tooth-for-tooth type payback.

“That bastard burned down our homeland!”, I shout and cry
In fetal ball I next curl up; bawl my eyeballs bloodshot / dry
By dusk, eyes bleary / head weary; dreamland’s worth a try.

Can I dream up exit plan, to someday soon, flee the coop?
Safely free all huddled masses, from our damned time-loop?
Or, awaken again, right back at my poem’s Line-One stoop?

Headshrinker Head of State

 

Amidst the backdrop of his raging pandemic, man-child Donald J. Trump now fancies himself a shrink… now toys with the notion that not providing K-12, in-person education will prove emotionally detrimental to young people.

While there may be a milligram of truth to such conjecture, here’s what that quack has failed to consider…

Emotional health will prove fleeting for any COVID-19 carrier kid who sickens her / his parents to death, winds up in an orphanage and gets haunted by a lifetime of guilt.

Not Catching that Bug and Buzz

 

Here in Michigan, it’s Primary Election Day. It’s also the first time I won’t be showing up at the polls… i.e., seeing how I had already hand delivered my absentee ballot to City Hall this past Friday.

While I am relieved that I won’t have to show up at my precinct’s… YIKES! NO MASKS REQUIRED!… polling place during a global pandemic… where I’d risk catching that nasty COVID-19 bug…

Nonetheless, I will be missing the physicality of it all… the process of signing in… standing in the fast moving line… being seated at the partitioned voting table… catching that national community buzz.

Dumb Donald’s Din-Din (and Din)

For optimal effect, prior to playing back the clip, above, read the set up, below…

From 1973 – 82, long before the Real Donald became a (four-letter) household word, we found the clever (clairvoyant?) Match Game writers submitting Dumb Donald scenarios for emcee Gene Rayburn to recite to the panelists, contestants and all who were playing along in the home and studio audiences… situations such as…

Rayburn: “Dumb Donald is soooooooo dumb…
Audience: “How dumb is he?”
Rayburn: “Once he tried to ____ a TV Dinner.”

Soooooooo, just how do the two Donalds’ worlds meet?

Whoa! Time Out!

Setting aside the clairvoyance, momentarily, it doth seem some déjà vu is in play here, too.

Have we not seen this clip before? Well, as it turns out, my previous post (timestamped 12/04/19), allowed us to catch a different glimpse of couch potato Dumb Donald’s odd TV viewing habits.

And I ask… what better way to showcase how the two Donalds’ worlds converge?

Think about it…

Me: Match Game soothsayers felt a compulsion that was soooooooo strong…
You: How strong was it?
Me: They just had to tap, anew, into Real Donald’s compulsion for all things TV!

All of which adds further credence to the speculation that their minds were functioning on a higher plane of existence. This time, they even managed to allude to the Real Donald’s penchant for pigging out on nutritionally low quality, unhealthy fare while gorging on the garbage… the psychotic hogwash… the undeserved praise… which the FOX TV network “personalities” constantly cook up to feed Delusional Donald.

The only good that can come out of any of that crap is the Real Donald’s concurrent state of stupor and sloth. If humanity is fortunate, such sluggishness will bog down his evil plot to topple Democracy, Decency, Liberty and the American Dream. Maybe… just maybe… all he’ll be able to muster will be an endless series of disgusting, high decibel burps and farts.

Ahem… all things considered…

This would be the opportune moment to scroll back up to our clip… to discover how well contestant Debbie Rich will fare in her attempt to match the celeb panelists…

An Unhealthy Respect For Corona-V

 

I don’t envy the learned, respectable Dr. Anthony Fauci and his colleagues. They face down, daily, one helluva thankless, exhausting task. Yet, stunningly and regrettably, their Job #1 has not been pandemic management. Instead, they must prioritize the mollycoddling of Prima Donna Donny, who barely functions at the preschooler level.

Were they to upstage / upset that capricious, narcissistic man-child, he’d gleefully fire them all… and worse yet… hire quack successors, such as his newfound false god, one Stella Immanuel, who, not unlike Donny, is renown for foisting off deadly, bizarre fantasies as if they’re what??? Established epidemiological facts???

Let’s not get into any specifics, here, seeing how too frequent repetition of Donny’s and Stella’s flat-out falsehoods always risks morphing them into pandemic promoting, fake truths… well… at least within the so-called minds of the gullible.

Instead, let’s consider how Donny has pissed away over half a year. He’s been frantically, desperately ISO anyone who… anything that… would, even remotely, conform to his magical thinking. Had he spent even a minuscule fraction of that time embracing the time-honored science, he could’ve prevented tens of thousands of agonizing COVID-19 deaths.

By now, he could’ve even honestly declared himself the Conquering Corona-V Superhero… be even taking his victory lap… as in… all the way to the Election Day finish line. Not that I’d ever want him to snag a second term… but… you know… just saying. But… to return to reality…

It has been the medical community’s angst (re the provocation of Trumpian tantrums), which has been severely crippling a desperately needed, far more aggressive war effort against the pitiless Corona-V. And while I do respect Fauci and his associates, there’s no denying that Donny has successfully coerced them into watering down the metrics… just to make them conform to his politically motivated agenda to reopen COVID-19 ravaged regions too fast and too soon (and Donny’s standing orders to slow down testing can only further corrupt said data).

More specifically, doctors having little choice but to play along with toddler Trump, concurrently plays down the role of the presymptomatic and asymptomatic individuals, who, lull the masses into a false all-is-well mindset, which in turn, emboldens non-masked, non-socially distancing party hearty yahoos, who, in turn, hit the awash with humanity beaches, frequent the jam-packed taverns and attend a sundry of superspreading events… inclusive of pandemic parties, religious revivals, political rallies, etc.

In the end, revelers have become little more than the patsies of a pitiless pathogen… one that plays them like trump cards… thereby further tightening its figurative and quite literal chokehold on humanity.

With safe, efficacious vaccines and therapeutics still in the R and D stage, nothing short of a month long global shutdown… AS IN NOW… will suffice. Seeing how that ain’t gonna happen, we must ask two disturbing Qs. What if, as I type / you read…

• Pandemic survivors’ immunity is only short-lived?
• Corona-V is mutating into an unconquerable supervirus?

An unhealthy respect for Corona-V could render COVID-19 the death of us all.
