YELL, “No t(h)anks!” (Quick Limerick)

`

YELL, “No t(h)anks!”

`

In role of “Da Prez” Putz was NOT worth his salt
His race for term 2 must grind down to dead halt
If voters don’t yell. “NO THANKS!”
He’ll hoist up Hell! Roll out tanks!
To mash masses’ atoms into the asphalt!

Rumpus ~ 1 Quick Limerick

`

Trump always holes up his brain where he sits
A trait he shares with his brown-noser gits
With Jan 6th BM, on cue
He pooped out failed DC coup
He’ll try again; next time he gets the $#!+s

ADDENDUM 02/09/2022 06:30: Granted, gross subject matter (diarrhea / dysentery / the $#!+s) is rarely in good taste. But, then again, neither was it in good taste for one, Donald J. Trump, to attempt to burn down a nearly two and one half century old, liberty based democracy; based solely on his malignant narcissism fueled, insanely false narrative / flimsy excuse that he lost due to election fraud; his BIG LIE repeatedly debunked by some of the very adjudicators he, himself, had appointed.

Beyond that, my public limerick is a perfect example of art imitating life; i.e., considering how some of the January 6th insurrectionists had actually resorted to dropping their undies and publicly defecating INSIDE the U.S. Capitol. My gawd, even cats have the decency to bury their fecal matter.

What the Hell Happened?

As I start typing this, 8 minutes into the 5 a.m. hour, both NPR stations “within earshot” of my radio are unable to access their network content. Their broadcast towers ARE active, but, they’re only transmitting dead air.

Hmm, were Donald J. Trump still calling all the shots, I’d be deeply concerned. After all, Phase One of any Fascist’s coup d’état is cancel culture; e.g. sever communication, silence the truth, etc.

Hmm, come to think of it, since President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Attorney General Merrick Garland (impotent leaders all) have utterly failed to hold perpetrator / traitor Trump accountable and imprison (or institutionalize) him for his January 6th attack of the U.S. Capitol, that X-prez is still calling all the shots. Ergo…

If not today, Trump and his private army could easily burn down America tomorrow… or maybe just in time for NPR’s All Things Considered non-broadcast to not cover that breaking news, this afternoon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whew… crisis averted? It’s now thirteen minutes into the 5 a.m. hour and my NPR affiliates… CORRECTION… only one of these stations has restored a connection to NPR’s Morning Edition.

Nonetheless, tyrant Trump is still calling all the shots.

I’m curious as to how widespread this morning’s mysterious NPR outage was, So, if you had the same prob, or have experienced similar issues re accessing other aired and streamed liberal content, post a comment to briefly describe what happened.

And They Lived Woefully Ever After?

`

`

`

Uh… Merry Christmas?

Granted, the following discussion is not aesthetically agreeable with such a holiday. However, considering the looming societal upheaval, once the deplorable conditions do get trotted out and take root, who’ll ever, again, be in a festive mood? This doth distill down to a matter of now or never. How you choose to react, of course, is totally up to you. But, should you opt-in to never, it could very well be last time you do have the freedom of choice.

So much for the intro. For those who are still with me. let’s soldier onward…

`

While it’s to be expected that our world’s malefactors would attempt to deny Americans our freedom, what’s utterly astounding is how it’s now The Latest Rage for such threats to be of domestic origin.

My gawd, how can anyone, who has ever (presumably) enjoyed living an unfettered life, wake up one sunshiny morn and yearn for the dank, dark storm clouds of oppression? To do everything in their power to install a smothering, asphyxiating, fascistic régime?

And speak of the devil…

Folks, we’re now a scant dozen days out from the one year anniversary of smothering, asphyxiating, fascistic, narcissistic Donald J. Trump’s attempted (fortunately stopped dead in its tracks) coup d’état.

The only things worse than that, are both he and his cultists are [1] not receiving the maximum punishment they are due and, as such, [2] are not done with us yet; continue to plot the toppling of America’s precious, nearly two-and-one-half-century-young democracy.

My gawd, consider all the past, vast numbers of Americans, who so valiantly and selflessly charged onto the battlefields; made the ultimate sacrifice. These sobering death toll stats say it all…

  • 25,000 (Revolutionary War)
  • 625,000 (Civil War)
  • 116,516 (World War I)
  • 405,319 (World War II)
  • 1,171,835 (Total Fatalities)

Their will to preserve, protect and defend the blessings of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness had been programmed deep within them; right down to their very DNA.

To truly honor them, we MUST NEVER cave in / allow ourselves to be assimilated into the Trumpian collective.

OK… OK… I DO get it…

Anti-American loser Donny and his Anti-American, loser supporters absolutely abhor liberty; the mere thought of it makes ‘em want to puke; maybe even crap their pants… BUT…

Must they drag down the rest of society with ‘em? Just so they can cop that subjugator / subjugatee buzz? Can’t these fascist junkies dope up privately… domestically… really domestically; oh… say… settle for wedding and bedding an abusive partner? Why don’t they simply set up a bridal registry (list their desired torturing paraphernalia), exchange vows and live together, woefully ever after, till death do they part?

Now, while that’d likely be fine and dandy for them…

Damn it, I CANNOT and ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT live my life like that! Hell, that’s not living at all!

Fortune Cookie Blog: Clerical Error

`

Blanket Statement: Thou shalt not make light of, or
worse yet, badmouth righteous, organized religion;
righteous being the kicker. To kick that statement’s
blanket off, there’s nothing righteous about an ego-
centric cleric or, worse yet, self-proclaimed prophet
who seizes the pulpit to profit personally/financially;
OR to proselytize/fund-raise on behalf of wannabes,
who, once elected, will gut society of human rights,
morality, liberty, etc; OR to trot out “sermons” that’ll
incite his cultish disciples to hijack commercial jets;
to kamikaze them into a nation’s iconic architecture;
or, via the coup, desecrate its citadels of democracy.

Y a www XSive Xistence is UnYs

`

Here’s why an online excessive existence is unwise:

Let’s say that we’re overly dependent on:

  • Streamed reportage to stay abreast of current events
  • Streamed music, movies and TV to amuse / entertain
  • Social networks to act as our digital photo repositories
  • E-commerce to purchase goods and peddle our wares
  • E-banking / E-bill paying to manage all of our finances

Now, let’s say that, someday, some devil-may-care electorate permits a cultist to rise to power; perhaps some narcissistic, fascistic, morbidly obese, bleach blonde, tousled hairdo’d dude with troweled on orange, clown make-up?

To keep it all real, what would stop that asshat from staging a coup d’état? Hey, it’s been tried before!

The top priority of any till-death-do-us-part type tyrant would be to sever all communication. And what could be easier than his throwing the Internet Kill Switch

The net effects of a net-less nation / world being:

  • Molded-over fake news; molded to flatter that Fascist bastard
  • A dispirited, disconsolate, alienated from loved ones populace
  • Consumers unable to secure life’s essential products/services
  • Entrepreneurs discovering their E-businesses shuttered tight
  • Frozen assets and the consequent inability to pay off creditors

There you have it folks. The unfed minds and bodies; unpaid mortgage/rent and energy bills would, quite literally, leave the huddled, miserable masses out in the cold.

In other words…

To abandon our in-print books, periodicals, newspapers, cardboard covered photo albums, in person theatrical performances / concerts, as well as brick and mortar businesses, could quite easily herald the demise of any robust, full-bodied healthy and happy society.

Exactly how far beyond that it could go, would depend, for the most part, upon the degree of the mercurial tyrant’s zealousness / doggedness.

A Friday the 13th “Reinstatement”?

`

As of my posting time, it’s now Friday the 13th all across America. Not being one who’s particularly superstitious, I’d normally be feeling blasé re this numerology. However, owing to very little qualifying as normal, these days, I’m feeling unnerved, instead. And with good reason, too.

It all boils down to the MAGA maniacs, who’ve been perpetrating and perpetuating The Big Lie; namely, that Donald J. Trump (not Joe Biden) won the 2020 election (yadda yadda yadda, YAWN). Little doubt, they’ve taken out their orange crayons to circle August 13th on their calendars; designated this very Friday as “The Day” where they expect all nine of the United States Supreme Court Justices (even the three liberals; YIKES!) to be ruling in favor of illegally disenfranchising legitimate, qualified voters; unlawfully overturning said election for the express purpose of “reinstating” Trump. And, once that crap goes down, what’s supposed to happen next?

Well, the X-prez’s hardcore supporters also expect President Biden, VP Kamala Harris, the whole kit and kaboodle of Biden Administration cabinet members and other staffers to do what?

Shrug? En masse, wave good-bye? Obediently march, single file, out of the White House, off the grounds and out onto Pennsylvania Avenue? And after that?

Well, to hazard a guess, that’s when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts would supposedly head for the U.S. Capitol steps to meet up with his boy Trump; to swear him into office a second time? Uh, on second thought, why would Roberts even bother? I mean, the Trumpster never has / never will take such an oath, seriously.

Of course, it’s utterly absurd to even discuss any of this; seeing how there’s absolutely no Constitutional stipulation or legal precedent to reinstate a former, one termer president; well, other than for him to run again and emerge the victor.

And, therein is the hidden danger. Donny’s delusional supporters actually believe that precise scenario will be playing out, today; just as strongly as they believe The Big Lie, itself. So, how will they react when reality comes crashing down around them? When absolutely none of that above scenario comes true?

Trump’s January 6th attempt to overthrow Democracy did provide us a valuable clue. That very seditious act amply demonstrates how his subversive supporters can and will march in lockstep with him. Indeed, at the mere drop of a red MAGA hat, they can and will re-attack America. And just knowing that such on-cue malevolence is brewing… alas… long sigh… it is possible that this Friday the 13th could prove to be bad luck for America.

And, while I hadn’t been planning on venturing forth into our Covid / Delta Variant diseased world, anyway, that Trumpers might be plotting, yet, another destructive, deadly coup d’état (in protest of Biden remaining our President)? Well, that’ll certainly keep me hunkered down at home; not only today but far beyond this entire weekend, too.

We can only hope that we, the genuine Americans, who still wholeheartedly believe in honest even-handed, liberty-based governance and voter rights / the sanctity of the ballot, will outclass and outnumber traitorous, tyrant Trump and his treacherous, MAGA minions.

The very survival of my / our homeland depends on the former political species prevailing.

A G-String o’ Hard/Soft “G” WordPlay

`

Once upon a time, there existed an egotistical, gargantuan, gluttonous, graceless, greedy, greasy, garish, gauche, gaudy, gilded, goldbrick, gasbag grifter / gangster, who transmogrified into a good for nothing General / general nuisance.

No student of History… HELL… no student of ANYTHING… was he.

As such, THAT ignoble, ignominious, inglorious, undignified, disgraceful, thuggish power grabber (likely unwittingly) patterned his disgusting régime after WW-II Nazi Germany; fully depended upon the Third Reich’s key goons (e.g., Hermann Göring) to ingrain into American society, something akin to a latter day Gestapo.

He also relied, a great deal, upon his Joseph Goebbels channeling, TV talking head, propaganda ministers to aid and abet his degenerate agenda; to totally warp the minds of his base, devotee voter base.

Six scant days into ’21, the degenerate General assembled his vast, savage legions of insurgents, goons and renegades; knowingly organized and energized this angry throng as his private army; rallied his gung-ho gang of gushing grovelers into such a ferocious frenzy that they stormed the Reichstag; destroyed, defiled and even publicly defecated within the U.S. Capitol!

Although this ragtag mélange of domestic terrorists / enemy combatants, fortunately, failed to prevail, even now (as I type and you read), these psychotic hangers on stand down / remain on stand-by; all gleefully, giddily chomping at the bit to hear their rabid, gruff, growling, mongrel General’s very next, foaming at the mouth barked out, “Attack!” command.

The End?

Is a coup d’état dress casual?

 

Hmm, now there’s an odd question this old-hand, seasoned, true blue American citizen never, ever expected he’d be asking; especially when that DC bash’s backdrop is expected to bleed outward to EveryTown, U.S.A.

Not that, at that point, I’d actually give a F about my fashion statement. But I do suppose, at the very least, the fabric should be stain-resistant; seeing how bloodstains are a bitch to remove.

• Will attendance be mandatory? We do know how VainMan is obsessed about size (uh, crowd size). I guess showing up would be advantageous; almost anything would be better than having to hear that big baby bellyaching / screeching re his low numbers till he’s iridescent orange in the face.

• Would anyone still have the balls to raid that odious blowout and shut ‘er down?

That, of course, IS the $64 Zillion question.

• But, WTF is the answer?

To all outward appearances, generals (who, btw have sworn to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC”) don’t seem to be all that concerned re that firebrand’s brand of flaw and disorder.

• But, might appearances be deceiving?

It is possible that our top brass have been sporting their finest poker faces; i.e., laying in wait until the very last moment where / when they’ll be ding-donging the despot’s doorbell. And, soon afterwards, be hauling his fat Fascist fanny off the premises and lead-footing the paddy wagon off to the stockade.

At that point, I actually would give a F about my fashion statement.

Yep, I’d be donning my party hat and glad rags!
