An Open Letter To Vladimir… (99 Word Blog #076)

Forgive me for telling you where you can stick your “fatherly” advice to American Democrats… namely… your patronizing statement about growing up and sucking up Hillary Clinton’s loss… thusly…

“You have to know how to lose with dignity.”

You’re classifying OUR behavior as what? Undignified? As if YOUR cyberattacking America is?

No “Dad” Vlad… no matter how often you say, “Nyet”, America’s FBI and CIA recognize how an X-KGBer’s machinations intensified anti-Hillary sentiments to help install his handpicked puppet.

My fatherly advice to you…

Be careful not to get tangled up as you pull Pinocchio’s strings… that’d be undignified.

Meet Mr. Greedy, Mr. Grimy & Mr. Groper (99 Word Blog #075)

 

Once upon a time King Grump conferred with his royal advisors… Misters Greedy, Grimy and Groper.

Mr. Greedy advised Grump to continue wallowing in dirty money generated by his dirty corporations.

Mr. Grimy counseled Grump to continue dirtying up his kingdom with the dirty, pollutant byproducts generated by his dirty corporations.

Mr. Groper recommended Grump indulge in some “playtime”, too… keep on being a dirty old man, who degrades and objectifies every woman, whose life (and body) he touches.

Eventually, this greedy, grimy, groping, male chauvinist King irreparably mucked up his entire empire’s economy, ecology and society.

The End!

 

History’s New Dividing Line… B.T. & A.T. (99 Word Blog #074)

My encyclopedia publisher sells yearbooks to update my 25-volume, A-Z set. However, their 2016 edition, which should’ve been shipped out in March ‘17, arrived before ‘16 is even over.

This book’s content confirms they’d gone to press mere days after America’s November elections!

Disappointed with this ten-month “yearbook”, I could’ve returned it but, instead, mailed in my payment. Why?

Because, intentionally or inadvertently, the editor has brilliantly established history’s new dividing line thusly…

Before Tyranny | After Tyranny

BTW, I won’t be buying future yearbooks. Why not?

There’ll be no future once tyranny’s chokehold devastates America and our world.

Oh… To Be Multilingual! (99 Word Blog #073)

As public school first grader, I had the honor and privilege of being taught by a woman who not only spoke fluent English and Spanish but also was eager to teach both languages to everyone in her classroom.

At my highly impressionable age, my wide-open mind was soaking up her every word.

When the closed-minded, local Board of Education caught wind of this, they were outraged… said they…

“Americans only speak English and we don’t need no one [sic] confusing our students.”

Regrettably, these ignoramuses rendered me monolingual… now prevent me from enjoying WordPress bloggers posting in languages foreign-to-me.

Lean ‘n’ Mean Tweets (99 Word Blog #072)

This ten-year blogging veteran realizes short posts are more popular. Via my 99 Word Blog experiment, I’ve been striving to use the least words to say the most.

I wouldn’t dare attempt this within the constraints of 140 character Tweets.

Regrettably, Tweets are one particular demagogue’s MO.

While finding common ground with him re political, socioeconomic, scientific and ecological issues is virtually impossible… can’t we agree that Twitter is NEVER the proper forum for him to be engaging in nuclear saber rattling?

At best, Twitter is merely the venue to draw attention to one’s lengthier, more judiciously worded posts.

Guess Who (99 Word Blog #071)

Once upon a time there lived a small, closed-minded boy. Although fully aware he’d soon be expected to pass the most arduous tests he’d ever been confronted with, he flipped off dozens of brilliant, worldly tutors, who were all eager to share their wealth of wisdom.

Rather than study, he squandered his time. He morphed into a hypercritical, bleary-eyed zombie, who binged watched late night TV… ceaselessly vented his psychotic outrage in cyberspace over trifling matters… staggered aimlessly about his homeland ISO the adulation of likeminded, mindless folks.

Come the day of the tests he flunked out.

The End.

Article 5 Could Deep 6 U.S. Constitution (99 Word Blog #070)

The rightwing-dominated media has brainwashed whatever voters have yet to succumb to apathy. These “voters” then foolishly elect Republicans, who (to ensure the GOP’s power proliferates and metastasizes) continue gerrymandering (redrawing) state legislative district boundaries… making it damn near impossible to elect Democrats and Indies.

2016’s elections have ratcheted up their subversive plot… netted Republicans a Federal chokehold (Executive – Legislative – Judicial branches) and granted them ownership of 32 state legislatures and 34 governors’ mansions.

A couple of election cycles from now, the GOP could reach Article V’s threshold of 38 states required to amend kill the U.S. Constitution.
