“Film” at Eleven (Teaser)

`

Callow, craven, congressional crew colors with crayons while
a corrupt, cantankerous, coven’s covey choreographs a coup!

`

`

If 11pm is way past your bedtime, that news teaser translates:
Naïve Democrats’ failure to secure free, fair elections permits
churlish, childish, MAGA minions to unconstitutionally contest
and toss totally legitimate ballots. And if thwarted, they will go
on a burn down Democracy and America rampage. The End!!!

`

`

`

Be humans Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!

HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:

PROBLEM: The M.O. of many a present day political candidate (particularly of the peculiar MAGA Republican variety), is to go into a preemptive, Trumper / Temper Tantrum Mode. Yep, well in advance of each Election Day (with nary a ballot even cast and counted), these malcontents, with increasing frequency, have been routinely insisting that any outcome, where they do not get more votes than their opponents, will be tantamount to “incontrovertible proof” of massive, widespread voter fraud.

  • Bad Enough, these tyrants, in essence, are pre-claiming victory… no… strike that… are attempting fascistic power grabs.
  • Worse Yet, some of the nuttiest sore losers are even demanding that they, NOT their victorious opponents, MUST be instantly sworn into office.
  • Worst of All, they and their hardcore supporters are little more than heavily armed, itchy trigger fingered gun nuts bleating out their utterly stupid Battle Cry:

“If BALLOTS don’t do the trick BULLETS will.”

Gun Nut Trumpies • starting c2015
`

My gawd, the…

  • Inanity and Insanity!
  • Haughtiness and Hostility!
  • Arrogance and Aggression!

All of these freaks’ wasted time and energy causes most sane people to wonder if America is even salvageable anymore?

If we’re forced to co-exist with outlaw candidates, who flat-out refuse to accept they lost, what will we be forced to do next? Outlaw Election Days? If so, what the hell would happen when two or more candidates vie for the same seat? WTF would determine the victor?

  • Shooting Craps?
  • Pissing Contests?
  • Rounds of Musical Chairs?
  • Playing Rock-Paper-Scissors?
  • Wild West Shootouts at the OK Corral?

America’s sicko gun nuts would likely favor that final, bullet pointed “solution”.

What more can we expect when sore loser scoundrels become so utterly consumed by their narcissism they cannot even accept the voters’ actual message to them…

“YOU LOST BECAUSE YOU, YOUR REGRESSIVE RHETORIC AND BUTT UGLY UN-AMERICAN ULTERIOR MOTIVES ABSOLUTELY SUCK! NOW SCRAM!”

PO’d, Critical Thinking, Give-a-Damn, True Americans
`

Considering how, even our high decibel voiced sentiments would still fall upon deaf ears, what’s long overdue is getting everything in writing.

SOLUTION: What I’m proposing is the no-nonsense, Endgame Election Law of 2022 (EEL-22); specifically designed to “electroshock” all combative candidates back to reality and civility; to school these arch conservative cultists, who haven’t a clue, as to what true American Democracy is all about.

Keep in mind that what we’re about to review is akin to those ubiquitous Terms of Service agreements; but only in a rough draft mode; also in dire need of a meticulous review by a team of Founding Fathers magnitude, Constitutional lawyers. Nonetheless, check out what I’ve titled…

The Terms of Candidacy Agreement

I, the undersigned Office Seeker, agree that IF the counted (and where applicable recounted) ballots indicate my opponent won; IF I can furnish no tangible, trustworthy evidence of widespread voter irregularities and/or fraud, I am duty bound to graciously concede OR, in lieu of that, simply shut the F up! Seeing how my violation of these terms can only undermine Democracy, IF I wind up a sore loser who still, wrongfully, publicly insists I won, I will be charged with a felony. There will be additional felony counts, too, IF any of my protestations result in acts of violence, and/or personal injury and/or the death of others and/or property destruction and/or culminate in any attempted coup(s). Upon the establishment of probable cause, an arrest warrant, in my name, will be promptly issued and, during my arraignment, my speedy jury trial’s court date will be set. Each guilty verdict will result in fine(s) and my incarceration (or institutionalization IF I’m declared non compos mentis); all monetary and temporal quantities to be determined by the sentencing judge.

PROBLEMATIC SOLUTION? What bothers me most, with this post, is the very fact that America would even need such a Terms of Candidacy Agreement, to begin with. That there are individuals, who call themselves Americans, YET, fight for Fascism, NOT, Freedom horrifies me all the way down to my DNA. Why are these sore loser spooks so easily driven by such a ferocious compulsion to kill the very spirit of Free and Fair Elections? More to the point…

Following the 2020 elections, why, oh why, couldn’t the spooky, sore loser Donald J. Trump, have graciously conceded to the actual victor, Joe Biden, OR, in lieu of that, simply shut the F up!

Nothing’s Left: Poetic Acrostic

`

`

`

Society’s frayed fabric; integrity bereft
Unravels and strands; its warp and weft
Fevers of covid and climate; exhibit heft
Freaky white elephant trumpets; lies ‘bout ballot theft
Eager confederates dredge, hyper-partisan cleft
Repress the free press; free elections; until nothing’s left

`

The acrostic’s message spells out / sums up the net effect on folks
who get oppressed by a stick-figure leader in a threadbare society

Clothes Make the (Everyday) Man

`

• So, what could be more disappointing than the small town political scene?
• Why, that’d be the small town political scene during an off-year election.

I had grumbled that unfunny joke yesterday; just as I began unfolding my absentee ballot. Soon afterwards, a far more painstaking deconstruction ensued; based upon how this election cycle’s sole purpose is to let four candidates vie for three city council seats.

In other words, a contest that’s little more than a game of musical chairs.

Worse yet, the candidates’ political personae don’t generate genuine voter interest; considering how the three incumbents are akin to pterodactyl/albatross hybrids and the one political virgin is reminiscent of the just fallen from the nest, fledgling bluebird.

Worst of all, their “platforms”are not all that impressive, either. If any of them have discovered the path forward to a rational, knowledgeable, welcoming, inclusive, clean, green, fully functional, vibrant community, they’ve yet to speak, convincingly, about how, precisely, they’d lead us to such a wondrous renaissance.

Not boding well, too, is how our mayor and these very incumbents, invariably, have been rubber-stamping the anything for a buck agendas of developers hellbent on blighting our cityscape with row after row of butt ugly, boxy mansions that resemble a fleet of Star Trekian Borg Cubes. Resistance Is Futile? Hmm, it’d appear so.

Beyond that final frontier, it’d be tough to figure out which is more massive; their constructed houses or their conceited heads.

My community’s conspicuous lack of affordable housing and the legions of aristocratic, autocratic association prez wannabes loom; both eventualities promising a most unpromising future; one where the rich swoop down on gated communities and the poor get run out of town.

Needless to say, deciding just who the hell I’d be voting for proved quite the daunting task. Hell, I was even considering making a political statement by submitting a totally blank ballot or by not mailing it back to City Hall at all.

But then my heavy heart prevailed.

Seeing how, of late, nationwide, Republican governors and state legislators have been interweaving sore loser Donald J. Trump’s widespread voter fraud, BIG LIE into the fabric of slews of unconstitutional voter suppression statutes, it suddenly dawned on me that this very ballot could very well represent the very last free Election that I’d ever be participating in.

At that juncture, thru my tear blurred eye, I opted to reread an online, meet-the-candidate article; this time noticing something so subtle, that it had gone previously unnoticed.

Two of these three incumbents were dressed-to-the-nines in their finery and other one had been so cocky, he hadn’t even bothered submitting his mugshot at all. All of which had transformed candidate bluebird’s no necktie, open-collar work shirt, everyday man fashion statement into a political statement; one that, at the very least, suggests a glimmer of hope.

While voting on a hunch would, ordinarily, be unwise, seeing how, in victory, he’d be only one voice out of seven, about the only “damage” his being seated would accomplish is serve as a reminder to the incumbents; that they are not as invincible as they may think.

All the above considered, I decided to chance it; to vote for him and ONLY him.

After all, my two non-votes can only harm his opponents’ chances; especially if the eventual Election Night paper ballot count winds up paper thin close.

Blocked Heads

If you call home sweet home, an enlightened nation
Keep in mind, free elections might not lead to elation
Not when candidates’ heads conceal constipation
To empower such doody, will cause consternation

To vote wisely, is akin to high colonic’s irrigation
It’ll unblock the backups; break up, too, these words “ation”
To vote otherwise, elects heads; flush with fecal matter
If they prove too tuff to flush; they’ll never scram / scatter

Aloof, Foolhardy and Loopy

`

Following Day-1 of Donald J. Trump’s Senate Impeachment Trial (Round 2) the morning after reportage has been claiming that the X prez is royally pissed off re the way his defense attorneys have been presenting his (feeble) case to the senator jurors; to the citizens of America and the world.

The sooner Trump learns to live with this, the better. After all, there simply is no way to paint a smiley face on what he did on January 6, 2021. My gawd, within a nation that prides itself on fair, free elections and the orderly transfer of power, fomenting deadly insurrection was, still is and shall forever be deemed INDEFENSIBLE!

Just about the ONLY way these mouthpieces could ever honestly, accurately assess their client would be to call him out as aloof, foolhardy and loopy (or stated less charitably) distant, dense and demented.

Whatever the word choice, anyone deemed that unstable is in serious need of either lengthy incarceration or institutionalization.

Bide-n His Time?

 

Wow! Mere days following Super Tuesday and long before multiple millions of primary ballots have yet to even be cast and counted, candidate Joe Biden can already count on becoming the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. The big question…

• Can Barack Obama’s ex-VP really, Really, REALLY defeat Donald Trump?

Joe had better be fully prepared to take on that Herculean Task. After all, Donny will be huckstering and rehashing a hoax… donning his tin-foil hat and trotting out his Biden / Burisma / Ukraine false narrative… i.e., the exact same way he successfully exploited this bogus issue throughout his legitimate House Impeachment and undeserved Senate acquittal.

• What does this all boil down to?

Well, instead of this presidential Election Year becoming a substantive, issues based campaign, the Trumpster… who neither has a firm grasp on the real issues nor shives-a-git about them… will, instead, be prevaricating and mudslinging his way to victory. Hell, that pathetic little man tells huge whoppers so frequently and fanatically, even he believes they’re the truth. Worse yet, so do the gullible masses, who’ll be reelecting him.

Even were Biden to, miraculously, win the White House, unless the Democrats also secure U.S. House and Senate majorities, his presidency will mean nothing.

•  What if vengeance seeking Republicans do wind up controlling both legislative chambers?

At the very least… Biden will be facing down ferocious obstructionism.

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

At the very worst… sore loser, vengeance seeking Republicans will dredge up the Trumpian lies re Ukraine / Burisma / Biden and use this as the basis to unjustifiably impeach, convict and remove Biden from office.

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

Of course… even in defeat, what’s to stop Donald Trump from holing up in the White House and flat-out refusing to turn over the keys to Joe Biden?

Net effect… the real issues… e.g., climate change, free elections, nuclear disarmament, gun control, women’s rights, human rights, fair immigration laws, living wages, an equitable tax code, affordable housing, healthcare and prescription drugs etc.… will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way.

RE climate change… failure to deal with this burning issue, STAT, will lead to humanity’s eventual extinction. Little doubt, the last people left (more or less) standing will wind up writhing around in such agony that… as they suck in their last gasp of super-heated, toxified oxygen, they’ll likely even welcome their own deaths.

Net effect… the real issues will NEVER be dealt with in any meaningful way. Of course, what would any of that really matter, anymore, once the cockroaches inherit the Earth?

One Civilian’s Salute To WW-II / D-Day Heroes

 

On this June 6th day… D-Day’s 75th anniversary… this civilian salutes WW-II’s heroic troops, who so decisively defeated the Nazis / Axis powers. The selflessness and sense of duty of the American / Allied forces secured globe spanning liberty for the past three score and fifteen years… and still counting.

These WW-II vets were honored earlier, today, in Normandy, France, and I cannot help but wonder how The Greatest Generation would weigh in re this day’s main speechifier Donald J. Trump? Would they rate his delivery style somber sincerity or berate him for merely deadpanning over-rehearsed lines?

I’d gravitate towards the latter, due to some self-evident truths which tend to hollow out nearly everything he’s ever said (and will ever say).

For starters… Trump owes his very rise to power to the political and economic support of White Nationalists. And little doubt, he’ll be counting on additional Nazi / Klansmen bucks and votes in order to snag himself a second term.

BTW, such hobnobbing might be acceptable were it some sort of top secret, clever ploy designed to slowly but surely reprogram / humanize them. But… truth be told… a reverse programming is the more likely eventuality… i.e., White Nationalists will cough up so much loot into Trump’s coffers, they’ll totally own him. Under such circumstances, how can they not further dehumanize him?

Beyond that… let’s rundown the following 13 key points… a reblogged, slightly revised / renumbered portion from my Memorial Day 2019 post. Hey… since it wound up mostly unread… it’ll likely be all new to you! Indeed, Trump’s inconsistent to freedom words and deeds abound. He routinely…

[1] flips off Constitutionally stipulated congressional / judicial oversight / stacks the judicial deck
[2] stifles free speech / brands journalism fake news and journalists “enemies of the people”
[3] insulates himself with Orwellian sycophants who vomit forth putrid, “alternate facts”
[4] bosses around We The People who, in reality, are his bosses
[5] demands mindless acceptance of his wretchedly unacceptable, patently offensive, avarice driven agenda
[6] alienates / pisses off longstanding, honorable allies until they all despise him / the U.S.
[7] tears up mutually beneficial international treaties so no one will ever come to our aid again
[8] meets secretly with / sucks up to sworn enemies who deem him a patsy, not a pal
[9] welcomes / encourages foreign meddling into our free elections
[10] makes war criminals his war heroes
[11] conflates patriotism with blind loyalty, as in, exclusively to him
[12] wrests infants / children from their asylum seeking parents’ embraces and interns all in concentration camps
[13] deems Nazis and Klansmen “fine people”

Now, I ask… don’t those above Trumpian excesses remind you of Nazi Germany’s? The clear and present danger, here, is how, left unchecked… well… let’s not “go there” just yet.
