My Petition to the Petitioners

`

Of late, Interwebs surfing Americans have been inundated with impassioned pleas to sign the petitions being circulated by prominent, Democratic Party representatives; e.g., the dedicated Voting Rights Activist Stacey Abrams and the barely noticeable Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Granted, such documents can prove useful in taking the ideological pulse / reading the moral compasses of Americans. However, I do remind these good-intentioned folks that they ALREADY know how we truly feel. Such petitioners need look no further than the resounding results of the legitimate, indisputable 2020 elections. Have they not taken a gander at which national / state level candidates won / lost, what ballot proposals succeeded / failed, etc; of how, most notably, Georgia got flipped from MAGA Red to TRUE Blue?

I mean WTF further validation do Democrats need, anyway?

To virtually pass around petitions serves no purpose other than to hide the fact that, SO FAR, obstructed Democrats have not been making good on their promises to [1] thwart the Republican’s nationwide voter suppression tactics (Jim Crowism / Gerrymandering), [2] raise minimum wage to $15 per hour (which actually needs to be at least $24), [3] roll out bold infrastructure improvements (inclusive of human infrastructure) and [4] unshackle the robust climate change mitigating / reversing science (before it’s too effing late).

It’s high time Democrats grow a set; refocus priorities to get their political house in order; i.e., the White House, U.S. House of Representatives and, especially, Schumer’s U.S. Senate, where the recalcitrant, power-tripping little “d” democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin have been gleefully, further weakening President Joe Biden’s ALREADY weak agenda.

Both Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi need to also promptly serve notice to the always avaricious for power and obscene wealth, obstructionist, Trumper Republicans; remind these alleged legislators that their whiny, cacophonous, cantankerous, cancerous, sore loser… the narcissistic and fascistic Donald J. Trump… did lose to Joe Biden; remind them that, here in America, Majority Rules and the vast majority of voters did empower a Democratic Majority to speak on their behalf. I mean, since Trumper (f)law-men / (f)law-women cannot be supportive, at the very least, they need to get the F outta our way!

More to the point, Democrats must bust up the Senate Filibuster rule which, in theory, is supposed to promote bipartisanship, BUT, in actual practice, is nothing but a road block to all progress. Dems must also perform some sort of political exorcism to rid both Sinema and Manchin of their soul sucking, Trumper demons.

Granted, very little of that will prove easy; in fact it could be downright risky business; i.e, could cause Democrats to lose their (theoretical) control of the legislative branch (come 2022), and the executive branch (come 2024). However, if Dems do nothing now? Well, let’s just say that many of the voters, who they’ll alienate, will sit out one or both Election Days. In essence, Dems, who appear spineless, will own such a dismal, political downfall, anyway.

Indeed, it’d be far riskier for Democrats to piss off critical thinking voters who want… strike that… who DEMAND bold legislation designed to promote human dignity and equality, honest even handed, liberty-based governance and solid environmental stewardship. Furthermore, we DEMAND laws that’ll bury effing Fascism, too!

And speaking of totalitarianism, a heady reminder to all empowered Democrats. Should you ever fail to rigorously investigate Donald J. Trump and his co-conspirator insurrectionists / traitors (some of whom, in all likelihood, are still masquerading as U.S. legislators); fail to purge all guilty parties from our legislative bodies and forever bar such anti-American wannabes from seeking elective office, we will live to regret that; perhaps even die as a nation. We can expect Trump’s cult to rear its ugly head, anew, to once again reprise their January 6, 2021 attempt to overthrow / burn down America.

We, who really know what America is supposed to be all about, actually want our all-encompassing, national policy to reflect who We are; live up to these mighty sounding ideals:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Our Founding Fathers’ Preamble • Constitution Ratified on June 21, 1788

On Election Day 2020, We the Majority, sent Democrats to Washington to breathe life into an agenda that will not only benefit all Americans, but also our entire, planetwide human family.

Empowered Democrats Listen Up! The time for talk / distracting petitions is LONG OVER! The time for take charge, comprehensive, remedial legislative action is NOW!

Donny’s Donnybrook: The Day After

 

I’ve heard that Donald J. Trump didn’t prepare much for his first debate with Joe Biden.

Then again, why would he even need to?

Not when he’s got a lifetime of bullying experience to draw on. Hell, bullying is likely a dominant gene that gets backdated to the toxic Trump family’s earliest knuckle-dragging caveman epoch. You know, when his militant, mutant ancestors were swimming in the gene pool’s shallow end; sloshing around in the spoiled, stale, leftover primordial soup. But let’s not digress excessively.

Since the know-nothing / do nothing worthwhile / good-for-nothing Trump has been running roughshod over America, right from the onset of his odious admin, why would anyone expect him to treat Biden any differently?

Seeing how Donny could not even begin to wrap his warped mind around the relevant to voters issues; could not tackle such problems, instead, he opted to tackle Joe.

Consider Biden’s Catch-22 options last night…

• If Joe allowed his opponent to monopolize the debate, Trump campaign ads would portray Biden as beta male or worse; e.g., feebleminded, timid and unable / unprepared to lead.

• If Joe walked off the stage, early on, opportunistic, deceitful Donny would’ve spent the remaining time mutating his abysmal job performance and lack of leadership into an asset; a free of charge, campaign ad. And the Trump campaign ads to follow would portray Biden as cowardly; (once again) unable and unprepared to lead.

• And seeing how Joe DID fight back; even told Donny to “shut up”, Trump campaign ads WILL portray him, at the very least, as argumentative and disrespectful.

Looking back, my being a “survivor” of grade school bullying, I do know, from first hand experience, what I’m talking about.

Looking ahead, I don’t believe there’s much to be gained from Joe debating Donny a second and third time.

Even so, Biden must show up anyway. Must never give Trump, the bastard bully, the satisfaction of bogusly and smugly declaring himself the debate stage “conquering hero”!

In spite of the fact that all wise, rational critical thinkers already know otherwise.

StuporMan Dumb Real Donald

From 1973 – 1982, long before the Real Donald became a household word, we found the clever and 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.

At this juncture, I’d normally be presiding over a Dumb Donald clip, but, seeing how my demand has nearly exhausted YouTube’s supply, breathing new life into this concept will all be up to me. To facilitate this reincarnation, I’ve been simulating, semi-serious seances ISO head-to-head matches with our dearly departed, Match Game souls. And methinks this graying old coot has not been departing the spirit world alone.

O – M – G! In the blink of an eye… something wondrous is now afoot. The entity, within, surges… surrounds… surpasses… surfaces… and I must surrender! Henceforth, my new game show host persona will be presiding over this revamped game show format…

Welcome contestants, one and all, to Match Game 20-20. I’m M.C. Grayburn. Our new rules are straightforward. Each of you will have one chance to match as many of our six, predetermined responses as possible. You’ll be playing for a grand prize that’s truly priceless:

The confirmation that you’re still a clearheaded, critical thinking non-consumer of the odious orange man’s Kool-Aid™!

If your responses do not match, YET, prove more clever than Match Game’s (which is highly likely) you’ll still win! BTW, we’d love to read your witty and/or wise alternatives within the comment section, below.
