Anyone in a shop-till-you-drop mood?

 

One would think that Confederate Prez Donny, who fancies himself the stable genius and consummate businessman, would be able to grasp onto the economic fundamentals… namely…

RULE #1: Unemployed, destitute grown-ups will not be in a let’s-shop-till-we-drop mood when [1] worried sick that COVID-19 will come home to roost [2] paying for the roof overhead and food on the table proves difficult, AND [3] the Fascist overthrow of America may already be a fait accompli.

That stark deficit of consumer confidence should come as no shocker to that science denier / autocrat who’s totally to blame for COVID-19’s physical and fiscal devastation and the dismantling of democracy.

Obviously, I cannot speak for everyone, but, under such grim circumstances, aside from paying for life’s bare essentials, the only way I’d ever go on a shopping spree is to [1] prepare for the worst by prearranging my own funeral and [2] hope for the best by booking a one way flight to the nearest progressive nation with outstretched, welcoming arms.

He Has Worn Out America’s Welcome Mat

 

Today we’ve learned that Dictator Donny wants to dodge / defy the U.S. Constitution to delay / dick up America’s free, presidential elections. Seeing how he spits contempt at every grand idea our Founding Fathers had envisioned for themselves… for posterity… we must conclude that the fake prez just can’t cut it as an American. One would think that, by now, he’d have thumbed his nose, whipped his finger, waved his final good-bye and cut and run.

Let’s face it. He’s the White House guest who has worn out America’s welcome mat.

While we should never get in the habit of booting Americans out of America, since he doesn’t want to be an American, anyway, in his case, we can make one exception… can we not? You know… just to indulge him?

It’s high time that the fake prez packs his bags and gets the hell out! Let him emigrate to Russia, where it’s a certainty that puppeteer Putin will welcome his puppet with open arms.

In the worst possible way, they are, indeed, kindred spirits. After all they both feel intense, perverse rapture for autocracies where the typical, scum of the earth despot stays in power till he drops dead.

The only unanswered question…

Would Big Bad Vlad install his protégé, Donny, as his heir apparent or court jester?

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

True Americans, read it and weep.

Revolting Donald J. Trump’s overthrow of America is nearly complete.

Whatever Donny wants, Donny gets!

NO QUESTIONS ASKED / ALLOWED!

The U.S. Constitution warns he’s not permitted to delay the Elections.

But the butthead doth wipe his fat Fascist fanny with it.

Who’d even want to touch the Trump soiled / despoiled charter, let alone read it?

Witness the johnny-on-the-spot FOX affiliate so matter-of-factly and promptly phoning it in!

THE WORST OF TIMES… film at Eleven!

Dear freedom loving nations of our world,

Perhaps it’s too much to expect of you,

But PLEASE oh PLEASE come to our rescue!

PLEASE do whatever it takes to resurrect the late, once great, United States!

In the event you can’t / won’t…

My American Compatriots…

It was fun while it lasted.

God help us all!

THE WORST OF TIMES… NO film at Eleven!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then Profanity It Shall Be

 

For the first four years of blogging here, @WordPress, I’ve managed to pretty much steer clear of profane language or, at the very least, to sub in clever, reasonable facsimiles thereof… e.g. asshat / a-hole… WTF / effing / F’d up / mucked up… $#!+ / give a $#!+…. and spoonerisms such as “shive a git” and “fit hits the shan”, etc.

Keeping it reasonably clean has been more about maintaining a family friendly site than a reflection of who I really am. In other words, when sufficiently outraged, my offline barrage of choice words (both uttered and written) has been known to rival, if not exceed, the salty language unleashed by the proverbial sailor/salt and truck driver.

The rationale for my long overdue revision of my self-imposed, no profanity policy, is inexorably linked to humankind’s exponentially worsening (by the hour and minute), multiple societal crises. And sans any doubt, our downfall is deeply rooted in rotten Donald J. Trump’s rise to power. Worse yet, we oft witness other leaders of his ilk, worldwide, plagiarizing his wretched words and aping his deplorable deeds whenever, they too, devolve before our very eyes and ears.

Fleshing that out, our society is currently being plagued by a trifecta of catastrophes… namely… [1] the spread of COVID-19, [2] the eons old, cancerous growth of systemic racism and [3] metastasizing Fascism.

And now that these reprehensible leaders have gleefully (sadistically?) sent our human family careening / fast tracking towards endangered species territory, if not extinction, I ask…

What the fuck is so family friendly about any of that evil shit, huh? Is that not the far worse obscenity?

It goes without saying that swearing does lose much of its impact when used excessively / gratuitously. And while ugly times and vulgar leaders do warrant foul language, my use of profanity will be sparing. In other words, IF the topic is profanity appropriate, THEN profanity it shall be.

Fortune Cookie Blog (Combat Boots)

 

Why do journalists, who obsess over objectivity issues, tiptoe
around Fascist régimes, as if they’re treading a tortuous path,
loaded with mountains of Fido’s feces? Since it’d be far easier
to snag some new combat boots than kneel before a dictator,
stand your ground, grow a set and kick ALL of that shit aside!

Oxygen?

 

With each passing nanosecond, it is becoming tougher and tougher to bypass that 136kg / 300lb monument to ignorance and intolerance. On the road of life, he is the personification of a massive, badass orange pylon; the roadblock to the much needed and long overdue road to recovery from a multifaceted malaise…

• Be that disease that aforementioned corpulent Fascist’s choke-hold, which asphyxiates many a citizen’s freedom.

• Be that disease pre-American / American society’s reprehensible, four centuries long history of slavery; the systemic racism, which [1] drives the hangman’s noose wielding Klansmen to lynch people of color and [2] sparks police brutality, resulting in many a black man’s “I can’t breathe” pleas for mercy prior to his needless death.

• Be that disease COVID-19, which smothers economic stability / prosperity and chokes off oxygen from many a ventilator dependent human prior to her / his needless death.

• Be that disease the likely irreversible ecological devastation that will, eventually, render Earth’s atmosphere unbreathable; leave many a human gasping for what little breathable Oxygen may still remain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imagining the Unimaginable?

 

My long ago, public school system’s American History courses were vulnerable to revisionism. Both teachers and textbooks oft employed “noble” sounding phraseology, such as “Manifest Destiny”, in a feeble attempt to pretty up the aggressive expansionists’ land-grabs (oft involving ownership contested territory), which all but guaranteed battlefields strewn with bullet riddled, blood-splattered corpses.

Additionally, instructors / authors rarely, honestly portrayed North America’s early settlers as the ill-mannered invaders they usually were and conveniently failed to mention how, due to hubris and hostility, these frontiersmen could not, more likely, chose not to peaceably coexist with anyone.

The corroborating evidence is damning, e.g., their unconscionable enslavement of African-Americans, savage massacres of Native Americans and unwarranted internment of Asian-Americans.

More recently, settlers’ descendants, who’ve failed to learn one damned thing from America’s shameful past, opted to extend such indefensible, reprehensible conduct to pointlessly attack Iraq, which resulted in the barbaric torture and genocidal slaughter of Mesopotamian Arabs, inclusive of incalculable numbers of indigenous civilians.

The Framers of our Constitution did hint at the above-mentioned human frailties. Right within the Preamble, there’s mention of their desire to “form a more perfect union.”

And I’d certainly add that, although America remains imperfect, our homeland is still worthy of survival… if for no other reason than to ensure the continuance of our Founding Fathers’ Grand Experiment… to, someday, perhaps, even see it to glorious fruition. Who the hell knows, we may eventually, even get everything right, right?

But that won’t be easy. Americans are now at the mercy of the merciless ogre who has wedged his fat Fascist fanny into the chair behind the Oval Office desk. He’s not only the most undemocratic, most Un-American prez to ever be sworn in (and sworn at), he’s a science denier, to boot. As such, he’d never, ever want to participate in any experiment… grand or otherwise.

Of course, that’s not to say he would not delegate autocracy’s heavy lifting to his insidious, more industrious underlings… and then promptly take full credit for whatever subversive plot these mad scientists concoct to blow up the “science lab”, as it were.

Having such reservations, re that bastard, is why I now find myself fondly reconnecting to my day’s of yore classrooms… recollecting the awe I had experienced courtesy of my mentors’ lectures and my textbooks. After all, not all of my lessons had involved revisionists’ fabrications.

That’s why, I now find tears welling up in my eyes whenever I come to the realization that, while I had been born centuries too late to have ever lived through the Birth of America, I now live at a time where I cannot help but sense that something wicked (and previously unimaginable) is imminent… a far from blessed event, which no one would’ve ever believed possible… not even in our very worst nightmare…

The Death of America.

Election Day 2020 and its aftermath will determine whether or not that nightmare comes true.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HELP!

Once upon a time, America was a shining beacon… the advocate of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness… so much so… that, in those better days, we even offered to extend our enlightened way of life to the oppressed masses… wherever they existed in our world… whenever needed.

• Seeing how, these days, my homeland’s better days can only be seen in the rearview mirror…

• Seeing how the road ahead is enshrouded by the dense, swirling haze of tear gas, from which a Fascist’s deployed, armed to the teeth, militant, testosterone poisoned phalanxes emerge to go to war with Americans…

We the People can only hope that the above clip… Trevor Noah’s commentary / presentation (an accurate reflection of America’s societal distress and disintegration) will serve as our Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! beamed across the www… our distress call to all freedom loving nations that may view this video… that is… should it should survive any attempt(s) at censorship.

• Seeing how said tyrant can and will do whatever he effing pleases and all who are Constitutionally duty-bound to rein him in either cannot or choose not to do their duty… We the People are S.O.L. Ergo…

Please… will somebody, somewhere, somehow come to America’s rescue before it’s too late… that is… if it’s not too late already.

Keep in mind that saving us will save your own homeland(s), too. It goes without saying that when an autocrat is left to his own military devices… inclusive of nuclear WMD… he won’t be content to stay within any geopolitical confines.

To him it’s today America… tomorrow the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those Who Don’t March In Lockstep To Be Locked Up?

 

Let’s keep this as brief as possible… 200 words or less. I spend considerable time ISO YouTube clips to corroborate and enhance my written content. I normally start with their homepage recommendations.

However, I’ve noticed… especially since Trump’s illegitimate Senate Impeachment Trial concluded… that the emboldened fake prez is directing his FOX network propaganda ministers to propagate increasingly disturbing content. No need to view this crap… the clips’ titles say it all. How so?

In essence, these freaking ideologues insist on locking up anyone not marching in lockstep with King Donald I.

Look, I’m a champion of the uniquely American freedom, which our Founding Fathers had secured for themselves and posterity AND support our troops, who, throughout our nation’s history, have so selflessly and courageously fought and died to preserve, protect and defend… on our behalf.

That’s why I’m completely appalled by how casually these broadcasting blowholes flip off dissent… the freedoms of speech and press… which are all core American values. It’s what America is all about.

To witness FOX traitors actually arguing on behalf of Fascist Trump… for the express purpose of promoting, preserving, protecting and defending his Fascist State is TREASON!

Can Election Day 2020 save America? Stay tuned…
