Biden Victorious? Trump Defeated?


Approximately 24 hours ago, my blog, titled, Trump Victorious / Humanity Defeated, concluded:

“About all that’s left, now, is for my prediction to be proven wrong. Will somebody please prove me wrong? PLEASE?”

Well, it’d APPEAR that America’s poll workers may have proven me wrong. After all, the multiple millions of absentee and early voting ballots, which they’ve been tirelessly processing, APPEAR to have changed Joe Biden’s title from Former Vice President to President-Elect.

And, to be proven wrong in this manner, I could not be happier.

I’m particularly pleased that Michigan, my home state, has played a significant role; that by completing and hand delivering my own absentee ballot to City Hall, a scant eight days ago, I had not only performed my civic duty but had actually made a difference, too!

I haven’t felt so good since doing my part to elect / reelect Barack Obama.

Under normal circumstances, there would now be reason to party hearty. Yet, there’s that pesky “A” word, APPEAR, which keeps on cropping up.

Such iffy language APPEARS because, psychotic Donald J. Trump, with desperation and despotism pounding in his mucked up brain and surging thru his arteriosclerosis diseased body, has opted to go on a filing frivolous lawsuits rampage. His M.O. is to keep on flinging his Fascist fecal matter until he gets it to stick. And in the process he’ll stick it to the American people; flat-out defy our ballot box, peaceable ouster.

What remains to be seen is IF “Adolf” will succeed.

Alas, IF could morph into WHEN, seeing how Trump owns and operates corrupt crony judges, who park their worthless behinds behind the Federal and Supreme Court benches; how the vast majority of them are itching to burn up the U.S. Constitution.

Alas, IF could morph into WHEN, seeing how Trump also commands legions of domestic terrorists, who are itching to burn America down to the ground.

Regrettably, it’d APPEAR that Joe Biden’s legitimate rise to power is not, yet, a done deal.

Sorry to say, I now find myself predicting that we may not have seen the last of yesterday’s headline, Trump Victorious / Humanity Defeated; that those very words may need to re-APPEAR atop a future blog.

About all that’s left, now, is for my new prediction to be proven wrong. Will somebody please prove me wrong? PLEASE?

Trump Victorious / Humanity Defeated


It’s now approximately one hour past midnight in the Eastern U.S. time zone, the polls are closed all across my homeland and, I don’t believe I’m going too far out on a limb to type in and “go with” my above headline.

Seeing how I just woke up, mere minutes ago, from a much needed, nearly four hour long nap, my prognostication is based, in part, upon my viewing a mere smattering of discouraging, preliminary seesawing ballot counts; all courtesy of the aired / streamed Election Night programming.

The other “in part” taps into a gut reaction, based upon my acquired, over a lifetime, understanding of stripped down to the fundamentals, human nature.

Specifically, we’re talking about how my regrettably gullible compatriots, regardless of political stripe, tend to succumb to greed and, perhaps worse than that, virtually always vote against their own best interests. Factor in their cult behavior; brainwashing “services” “courtesy” of one Donald J. Trump and a phalanx of his owned and operated propaganda ministers and voilà… to borrow a hackneyed phrase… we’ve got a (climate change intensified) perfect storm; already in progress.

And”progress” hardly describes where America will, once again, be heading.

Bottom line, foolhardy, selfish folks, all across the late, once-upon-a-time great America, would rather improve their own bottom line / feather their own nests. And they will pay for it DEARLY. Hell, they’ll drag all the rest of us down with them; i.e., force us ALL to pay for it DEARLY.

Once again, they’ve propped up the worst entity, in recorded history, and, in the process, pumped up his preexisting massive ego. They’ve utterly failed to realize that, in his 1-page book, he, AND ONLY HE, is Number 1.

So, in our rear view mirrors, we now witness the long faces of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris; watch them reluctantly waving Americans bye-bye for the last time. Their plans to reconnect with science to resuscitate our dying planet and rescue humanity from the coronavirus; to restore basic human decency; to reunite our fractured society…

Folks, the dream of Joe and Kamala; your dream; my dream for a better day is all over.

Instead, the Trumpian nightmare will continue to rage on… and on… and on… and on…

About all that’s left, now, is for my prediction to be proven wrong. Will somebody please prove me wrong? PLEASE?

Mansplaining Manipulative Ad


If you’ve yet to see the National Rifle Association’s latest, delusional, dystopian ad… one that’s shamelessly tailor-made to help reelect the absolutely non-electable Donald J. Trump… well… you won’t see it here, either.

Instead, let’s project and dissect this piece of… uh… work… upon our devices’ clinical, pure white screens. Do keep your airsick bags within reach… here we go…

The off camera, drama queen announcer smugly speaks in his menacing, mansplaining, manipulative tone of voice… words to the effect… she has two children, two jobs and because lefties took away her gun, tonight, she might not make it home, alive. Meanwhile…

The accompanying visual vignette showcases the nocturnal workplace parking lot, where we find a panicking, out of breath, young woman attempting to flee assailants. She’s barely able to unlock, enter and slam her car door shut, when, suddenly the driver’s side safety glass gets smashed to smithereens. Next, the tight camera shot refocuses, rightward, upon the gear shift console, where…. POOF… the conspicuously placed handgun, conveniently vanishes into thin air! In the end, the camera angle sort of suggests that her now lifeless body lays sprawled upon the asphalt.

YIKES… there’s so much to unpack here, I’m bound to miss a few points. Anyway, here goes…

• The fact that this ad’s victim would even need to work two (or more) jobs, serves not as a testimonial to womankinds’ work ethic. What this actually points out is how misogynist Donny, and his corrupt big biz cronies, not only insist on shit pay for the masses but even shittier pay for women.

• Were all of the vital-to-a-viable-society jobs paying living wages, would there even be a need for anyone to be working the graveyard shift and walking thru perilous, after hours parking lots?

• Need anyone remind that, against the backdrop of America’s gun sick society, no politician of any ideological stripe (inclusive of Trump’s rival Joe Biden), would ever piss off gun nuts by passing even the weakest of weak gun control laws.

• Let’s, once and for all, figuratively shoot the shit out of the NRA’s temporal anomaly! Although their intent is to distort what life would be like were Biden to become President, the bitter truth is that they are emphasizing what life already… repeat… ALREADY… is like on FLaw and DisOrder Trump’s watch!

Owing to the self-important, fake prez choosing not to promptly, proactively and persistently follow the advice of the pandemic averting experts, his resultant, DIY COVID-19 crisis has furloughed millions of hard working people and, for a substantial portion of them, their workplaces will wind up permanently shuttered.

Because Donald J. Trump failed to preserve and protect our lives and livelihoods it’s only a matter of time before the jobless, homeless and hopeless people, unable to earn an honest dollar, will resort to dishonest means to pay their bills! At that juncture, the resultant ugly scenes won’t be playing out on make-believe Hollywood’s stages and won’t involve NRA / Trump hired actors who can return… safe and sound… to their homes once the director declares, “That’s a Wrap!”

Crow Sings Truth To Power

Ya gotta know a song is gonna be great with opening lyrics such as these…

There’s a fly on the wall, in the house on the hill
where the king of the world, watches TV… [read more here]

You and I both know who Ms. Crow is addressing.
But… were he to ever hear her song… would he?

Thanks Sheryl… we all needed that!

And if they’re listening, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would be wise to make this their campaign’s rock-the-voters anthem!

Fat Shaming a Fascist Bastard


Fat shaming is wrong. But, might there be an exception to that rule? What about when extraordinary events rear their ugly head? Consider these truths that are self-evident.

• Science denier Donald J. Trump’s abject failure to contain Corona-V, early on, has not only sickened, SO FAR, over 6 Million people residing in the U.S.… sickened to death 187,000 of those 6 million… but has also devastated Barack Obama’s once upon a time, relatively decent economy. America is now facing down massive joblessness, looming homelessness and, eventually, could also witness another Wall Street Crash.

• Ever since Despot Donny’s owned Republican Senators flat-out refused to do their (legal and moral) duty to boot his impeached butt out of office, that narcissistic psychopath has been on an ideological nationwide / worldwide rampage which, considering his access to the nuclear launch codes, could, conceivably, wipe humanity off the face of the Earth.

• Autocrat Trump also has loaded the U.S. Supreme court bench with two of HIS hand-picked sycophants, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, who will, aid and abet their boss’s ongoing voter suppression plot AND at the (figurative?) drop of his trousers, fall to their knees to kiss his ass and, perhaps, even hang around long enough to gratify him in other ways. Only decorum dictates we don’t further go down that road.

• Dictator Donny… in his bid to never relinquish power… has already disenfranchised multiple millions of voters. HIS hand-picked tool, Louis DeJoy, now Postmaster General, has, single-handedly, FUBAR’ed the entire USPS, perhaps irreparably, just to ensure that pandemic and panic stricken Americans cannot mail back their cast absentee ballots. Which leaves us two alternatives… EITHER don’t vote at all OR vote, in person, and risk getting sickened / sickened to death by COVID-19.

• Tyrant Trump is also sadistically pitting justifiably pissed off, mostly peaceable, BLM demonstrators against his illegally deployed, racist stormtroopers AND his seething with bigotry, homicidal, armed to the teeth, gun nut, civilian mercenaries. Marching in lockstep, the Trump Brigade will get off on blowing people of color away… or at the very least… trampling these 1st Amendment Rights.

“Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

• Fascist Trump has been stoking up such ferocious civil unrest it could lead up to an all-out Civil War… all of which would give him the “perfect” excuse to declare Martial Law and postpone Election Day, indefinitely. To the constitutional scholars who’d point out that, sans November voting, Trump could no longer be president as of January 20, 2021, I now remind them we are talking about Trump wiping his rump / Fat Fascist Fanny with the U.S. Constitution.

• Seeing how Donald J. Trump’s overthrow of America cannot be contained by Constitutionally Mandated Legislative and Judicial Checks and Balances… and not even We the American Electorate… WTF is left… well… other than fat shaming a narcissist who might… JUST MIGHT… if we’re damned lucky… be slowed down upon his learning that We had poked fun at his larger than life hind end; his grotesque, butt ugly booty; his flattened by sloth and fattened by Fascism fanny!

Against the backdrop of such treasonous circumstances, how could anyone deem fat shaming him wrong?

Tongue Twister


The sicko, bootlicker ballot casters-to-be, slake their accolades seeking icon’s needs, whilst, just to slicker such unsuspecting suckers, further, unscrupulous, scummy, lickspittle makeover artists / image consultants… as in lickety-split… skillfully slicken up the unlikable likeness of their lackadaisical, slacker candidate / client.

Corona-V Out-Matches Donald-T


If your homeland’s leader is enlightened, obviously, you do not live in America. Most assuredly, you’re not forced to put up with, first hand, the unlikable likes of Dumb Donald-T.

• Dumb Donald is soooooo dumb…
• How dumb is he?
• He failed to act promptly, proactively and
persistently to contain COVID-19’s spread.

Worse yet, that science denier cannot even begin to fathom how the pandemic, of his own making, has not only laid waste to public health and the economy but has also taken its psychological / emotional toll.

Think about it. In the absence of vaccines and/or therapeutics, my homeland’s very survival depends upon everyone masking up and socially distancing. Yet…

• Cheerleader-In-Chief Dumb Donald is sooooo dumb…
• How dumb is he?
• He is constantly shaking his political pom-poms to
lead the charge in America’s Ant-Masker Movement.

I’m sure that most Americans, while doing our grocery shopping, have crossed paths with maskless, mindless Trumpers. And our worrying about this, both during and afterwards, is what can easily bum us out…

• Dumb Donald depresses us soooooo much…
• How much does he depress us?
• Each time we venture forth into the fake prez’s
diseased America, we run the real risk of our life
expectancy dropping down to weeks; maybe days.

Let’s sum up this pandemic problem in terms that even Dumb Donald could grasp?

Consumers will not be in a shop-till-we-drop mood, when we’re expecting to drop dead from the Trumpian Flu. Until Donald J. Trump can deprogram his base and… at the very least… convince them to mask-up… he can expect COVID-19 to tank out his job approval ratings and Stock Exchange numbers. And, if Fair Elections still even exist anymore in America… he’ll get trounced at the polls, too.

Her Missive’s Missing Persons

I received a letter, today, from U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Enclosed in the envelope I discovered a copy of the very photo featured in our above clip.

What makes this photo, snapped on 10/17/19, work so well is how it functions on multiple levels…

• Lawmaker enforcing Legislative branch checks on Executive branch
• American doing her patriotic duty to fearlessly speak Truth to Power
• Liberated woman staring down a wildly oinking, male chauvinist pig
• Public school teacher sternly lecturing a willful, ne’er-do-well student
• Mama disciplining her naughty, ornery, temper tantrum throwing son

My reading so much into this Pelosi / Trump confrontation… well… I just had to do something extra-special. Ergo, I opted to shine up a spare picture frame’s glass, insert her photo and place this atop my piano. Now, whenever the Trumpster is pissing me off, I can laugh him off.  I mean, the fake prez’s jaw dropping, startled expression is PRICELESS!

Truth be told… to totally rein in Trump’s reign of terror, will take more than Pelosi., alone. Alas, when it involves legislators enforcing Constitutionally mandated checks and balances, this House Speaker finds herself in a distinct minority. And in a system where majority rules… well… we’ll need to defer further discussion along those lines for another blog… another day.

More truth be told… Ms. Pelosi doesn’t know me from Adam. She disclosed the real reason for contacting me within her cover letter. There she presented her compelling reasons why I should contribute to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The minimum donation they seek is “only” $15… HOWEVER… my existing on an inadequate fixed income, well… I’ll need to think this over cautiously…

On one hand… I must consider just a few examples of the “eats” that $15 could buy…

• 30 bowlfuls of old fashioned oatmeal… or…
• 24 pasta and tomato sauce suppers… or…
• 24 peanut butter and jam sandwiches… or…
• 25 6oz / 177ml sized cups of yogurt… or…
• 90 cups of my favorite brand of coffee… etc.

On the other hand… that $15 might help elect Democrats who’ll, in turn, pass legislation that’d help increase my limited funds’ buying power.

But, all hand wringing aside… let’s further discuss Pelosi’s missive, which also has one helluva glaring omission…

Nowhere to be found was any mention of POTUS wannabe, Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris!

OOPS! (correction) YIKES!

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.
