A Thin the Liberal Herd Mentality?

`

Over at YouTube, I just spotted a bizarre Republican ad. Little doubt, they’re hoping to resuscitate their their cash strapped, (not so) Grand, (predominately) Old , (totally dreadful) Party by huckstering the following product:

“Trump 2020 Hunting Camo Hats
Show where you stand wearing this symbol of America”

Copy and Paste from GOP advertisement • 10/29/2020
`

Here’s where my head is at:

• On one hand, I’m OK with hunters, who shoot their non-human critter(s) of choice to put food on their tables.

• On the other hand, this never armed, usually vegetarian confines his non-violent hunting and gathering to the supermarket.

Obviously, I’m no expert woodsman. Even so, I do have a few questions:

• Why would any hunter ever choose to wear a camo hat (or any other camouflage clothing)?

• Would it not be better to wear bright colored duds in the woods, you know, to give a heads up to other hunters; just to insure you don’t wind up getting shot / shot to death?

Hmm, seems to me that about the only thing dumber than going on safari decked out in camo hunting attire would be to don a fur coat and start grumbling in a gruff unintelligible manner.

Of course, considering how this ad is targeting Farron Cousin’s Ring of Fire audience, perhaps the GOP’s diabolical marketing strategy is to thin the liberal herd prior to Election Day?

Even tho my last remark, is j/k, it’s still possible that the righties are dead serious; I mean, let’s keep in mind the 233,000 COVID-19 deaths that have occurred on their watch.

Duz Donny Yearn for a 3rd Hand?

Donald J. Trump excessively obsesses over his numbers.

He slows down testing for COVID-19, to lower the discovery of cases, even tho, whether found or not, Corona-V is still deadly… has already claimed nearly 200.000 stateside souls… and still counting! He’s likely falsifying that stat, too. Would it shock anyone were we to discover the number of fatalities is twice or thrice that amount?

He crows about a slightly down, unemployment rate of 8.4%. Granted even a modest improvement is heartening. However, that stat is bound to, once again, head south into double digits territory, STAT! That’s because cram-packed K-12 hallways / classrooms and college kids’ pandemic parties infect student bodies and Donny’s own maskless, no social distancing campaign rallies sicken his devotees. Any of these superspreader scenarios can and will result in sickened, stricken down people showing up at hospital ICUs instead of their workplaces.

He’s privately tearing his hair out re his tanked out job approval ratings, which figuratively swim alongside him in the deep end of his fetid cesspool / swamp. Ditto his fretting over the pollsters’ numbers, which predict his Election Day defeat.

One would think that Donny would view all the above as his wake up call, right? WRONG!

Instead, he views TV… to excess.

Right on TV, he has actually, astoundingly, fessed up to vegging out in front of his flat-screen for endless hours, each day. That’s because he’s a praise junkie desperately ISO his fix… his absolutely undeserved accolades… all courtesy of his psycho sycophants. Yep, these talking head, headcases are all too willing to stroke his massive ego… you know… just to make their false god feel oh soooooo good.

Why can’t he take a more active roll… i.e., actually hunker down to do, bare minimum, one honest day’s work to substantively improve his numbers and OUR LIVES… oh… say… lift one tiny finger to halt Corona-V dead in its tracks before we, who’ve yet to contract Donny’s Disease, get sick and drop dead?

Alas… long sigh… that’s not gonna happen seeing how vidiot / couch potato Donald J. Trump exists only to sit on his fat Fascist fanny… with his remote in one hand and Tweeting iPhone in the other. Seeing how televised praise is the fake prez’s porn, it’s a sure bet that he wishes he had a third hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who Killed “Thou Shalt Not Kill”?

Ring of Fire’s YouTube channel blurb succinctly sets up our featured clip…

Kyle Rittenhouse, the suspect who allegedly killed two Black Lives Matters protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week has become a hero for the unhinged Right, and a Christian fundraising website has allowed these pro-murder Republicans to raise nearly half a million dollars for his defense. The Republicans are the pro-murder Party, there is no other way to say it. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this disgusting turn of events.

About all I can add is that America’s Founding Fathers had been wise to insist on the Constitutional Separation of Church and State and, most assuredly, they’d have frowned upon Donald J. Trump’s bastardization, politicization and radicalization of religion, too.

Although I remain a spiritual man, my own interest in organized religion ebbed at the tender age of 12. That’s mainly because I saw the hypocrisy of the adult congregants, who, in actuality, only showed up each Sunday to sport their finery / flaunt their material possessions. Hell, had it been any WORSE, after the benediction, the menfolk would’ve rushed out to the parking lot to rev the engines of their brand spanking new, swank rides. And once the missus and kiddies were all packed aboard, they’d have peeled out to head back to their mansions.

But the hypocrisy did get WORSE

Half a century later, churches have become bastardized, politicized and radicalized. How else could one explain so-called Christians conveniently suspending the Commandment, Thou Shalt Not Kill, just to justify the cold blooded double homicide, of which Rittenhouse has been accused.

If God is on board with such conduct, on the day I die, I’ll take my chances on that downward escalator ride to the Gates of Hell!

Try Making Heads or Tails of This!

Just take a gander at the yuge, ear to ear spanning, shit eating grin on the fake prez’s smug mug!

WARNING: There’s an ick factor in play, here; the tendency to throw up a little in our mouths, when Donny reminds us of his larger than life hind end; his grotesque, butt ugly booty; his flattened by sloth and fattened by Fascism fanny!

Now’s Not the Time to Kiss and Make-Up!

As one who still reads about current events in the newsprint and ink format, I’m well aware of the glut of slick, glossy, advertising circulars that get crammed in after the Classifieds Section… inclusive of those promulgated by the huckster of health and beauty aids products… ULTA.

When such attractive ads are taken at face value… one would tend to believe such a beauty conscious corporation would be run by folks with beautiful consciences, too? Yes? No?

Well, if the allegations are proven true, that would mean that ULTA…as of late… has been engaging in the medically / microbially unsound business practice of selling USED make-up. USED MAKE-UP!

Think of the reader chorus of EEEEWWWWWWWWs that has just occurred! And, most assuredly, I would encourage women, who now worry that their health and well-being may’ve been needlessly endangered, to check out their options at TopClassActions.

Let’s move on to the deeper than skin deep issues. While, intrinsically, the desire to look one’s best is not a bad thing….

In this purportedly liberated, new millennium, why must anyone permit youth obsessed Hollywood, Madison Avenue and ULTA their narrow definition of female attractiveness? Ironically, such an outmoded mindset oft gets perpetrated and perpetuated by a slew of fantasizing, male porkers whose own faces could rarely, if ever, be described as anything even remotely beautiful and youthful.

Speaking from this liberated guy’s perspective… as unfair as this actually is… most men never feel compelled to use similar cosmetics because society accepts our appearance no matter how old we look. Or… to clever up this post just a tad…

We live in a world that accepts males even after our mugs cease to resemble The Picture of Dorian Gray while the paint was still wet. BTW… my kudos to Oscar Wilde for his inspirational, imaginative literary work of the same name.

But to get back to the unbecoming buisness model of allegedly selling USED, UNSAFE products, let’s consider the slew of nasty diseases out there. To be merciful, let’s limit this to a rundown of just one…

What if ULTA were to resell returned lipsticks, which have been infected with Herpes? Just how attractive / alluring would the new owners’ lips look once that nasty, chronic disease’s symptoms appear?

Such nightmarish scenarios will be ours so long as we elevate unscrupulous leaders who deregulate their anything-for-a-buck, corrupt CEO cronies.

Indeed, this already is a business trend that consumers… ULTA et al… will be facing down when nobody with ethics is minding the store.

Lambastes all time-honored, fact driven science,
Which warns us Earth won’t be nifty,
By nearby year Twenty-Fifty,
Unless we end fossil fuel reliance!
