Message to Lovers (of Liberty)…

Tyranny Anywhere Threatens Freedom Everywhere

Beau of the Fifth Column’s common sense video, above, will amply clarify America’s Do or Die moment; i.e., distinguish everything that’s at stake this 2022 election cycle. If your time is limited, prioritize viewing it over reading my own commentary, below…

`

Clearly, early voting is still ongoing all across America. What isn’t so clear is IF our electorate has been actually seeing the Big Picture.

That’s because, typically, we do vote our own pocketbooks and, needless to say, there hasn’t been much to be happy about. As is true with most of my average American compatriots, inflation has been hemorrhaging my own limited assets.

Nonetheless… I will NEITHER be blaming Democrats for a mucked up economic mess created and exacerbated by corporate price gouging, broken supply chain issues and ignoranus (<– not a typo) Vladimir Putin’s Ukraine war; NOR will I be punishing said Democrats by voting in MAGA Republicans whose ONE AND ONLY solution to economic woes is heaping on even more economic woes; typically by lavishing utterly undeserved tax breaks upon the wealthiest of the wealthy.

Need I even remind… The upward redistribution of wealth has never improved the lives of commoners (I among them).

Worse yet, there’s a dangerous and disastrous flip side to these MAGA maggots’ greed; namely, their aiding and abetting Donald J. Trump’s ongoing conspiracy; i.e., his plot to usurp power (come January 20, 2025), cling to it till his last day on Earth and, in turn, forever burn down Democracy.

Flipping off / filling in the particulars… This election year, there are nearly 300 candidates, nationwide, who’ve been totally suckered into Donald J. Trump “2020 Election Fraud” Big Lie. IF (more like WHEN) empowered (especially the state level Secretaries of State), they will be hellbent on mucking up all future elections and, as such, they’ll easily devolve America into a Fascist Dictatorship. And in saying “mucking up”, I mean they’ll be disenfranchising voters by shredding their legitimately cast ballots.

The obvious solution is for every true American to deny them that power; to non-violently trump Trump as well as every last one of his Fascistic Freaks / MAGA Minions.

We MUST preserve, protect and defend American FREEDOM by voting in Democrats up and down the entire ballot. I’ll be HAND DELIVERING my own, completed absentee ballot to my local election officials before 8 p.m. tomorrow / Election Day.

I do fully understand that any plan to hire / rehire Democrats is, at best, an imperfect solution because, far too oft, they lack the spine to do the work we send them to DC to do; and even if they do the work, they’re poor at messaging their accomplishments to their constituents.

However, I also recognize that when confronted by our two party ONLY system, that necessitates our always voting for the lesser of two evils.

And, to be clear here, WTF could be more evil than Trump and his yes-men / henchmen insurrectionists?

Stated in a more practical vein… We the People will have a far better chance of on-the-job training Democrats to (eventually) see things more clearly (act more progressively and courageously) THAN attempting to oust autocratic MAGA Republicans; renown for whipping their collective middle finger at our Founding Fathers’ precepts of Democracy; to e.g. just one, their Constitutionally established, orderly. peaceful transition of power.

Beyond that… Every qualified, clear thinking voter must cast their ballot prior to the polls closing tomorrow evening, November 8th. America’s very survival does hang in the balance…

Watchfully Waiting

PREFACE: While what follows is far from a comprehensive appraisal, I am going on the premise that even an imperfect assessment, today, is still infinitely preferable to awaiting tomorrow’s more polished work. That said, here goes…

`

In the highly unlikely possibility that one or two of you might be wondering about my recent disappearance from this platform, it’s all been with good reason.

You see, I’ve been laying low while contemplating the feasibility of my WP future. After all, the wisdom of continuing to blog from the liberal / progressive point of view is highly questionable when, ideologically speaking, the road “ahead” foreshadows an increasingly insufferable, apparently irreparable, chronically chaotic. hardcore right wing dystopia.

`

While I still harbor the belief that the vast majority of humanity is honorable, within our (allegedly) representative government nations, does majority rule even rule anymore?

`

In far too many instances, inveterate propaganda ministers have been whipping good people into exhaustion, apathy, silence and submission; into no questions asked / permitted acceptance of wretched, fetid (alleged) leadership.

And, re such stench, once folks have been conditioned into nose blindness, that makes the long overdue, desperately needed, ballot box deodorization process difficult, if not IMPOSSIBLE (especially when / where the odious powers-that-be have also resorted to suppression of fair, free elections).

How IMPOSSIBLE?

Well, with ever increasing frequency, (especially Stateside,) unscrupulous, arrogant, snot-nosed, incumbents and wannabes (whom the voters have justifiably denied the reins of power), have been throwing temper (Trumper) tantrums; so severe that they’ll make unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud and NEVER accept their undeniable ballot box defeats.

At that juncture, we can expect matters to deteriorate rapidly and rabidly. I’m sure I needn’t remind anyone of how turncoat Donald J. Trump and his private army of domestic terrorists attempted their brazen, grotesque, deadly, destructive, January 6th coup d’état at the U.S. Capitol.

Since such subversives have been left unchecked by Democrats, history is likely to repeat itself. As such, once the November 2022 ballots get tallied, any victors (who do not identify as MAGA) can expect to be wrongfully challenged and, in the end / THE END, even wind up flat-out denied their legitimately earned political power. In other words…

`

Avarice, ignorance and decadence driven MAGA minority rule will rule; where the hard work of saving our human family / our troubled world will NEVER get done.

`

While matters do appear glum, I’ll remind all American ballot casters (of good character) to keep the good thought that appearances can be deceiving. And more to the point…

`

Voter suppression can be overcome by monumental voter turnout. En masse, our cast ballots can preserve, protect and defend our Founding Fathers’ vision for us; our posterity.

`

And so, here I am; anxiously, watchfully waiting the outcome of the November 8th midterm elections; knowing fully well that we’re now confronted by this do or die moment in human history.

IF maniacal and moronic MAGA Republicans wind up taking out both the U.S. House and Senate, we might soon be waving good-bye to both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris; if not impeached and ousted next year, they’ll both become lame ducks for the next two years.

In essence (and at the risk of repeating myself)…

`

Avarice, ignorance and decadence driven MAGA minority rule will rule; where the hard work of saving our human family / our troubled world will NEVER get done.

`

Beyond that? Well, how can anyone ever expect to survive any of THAT, let alone attempt to blog about it?

Personally, I’d never want to preside, in real time, over the demise of humanity / our planet. That’d be damn near impossible with my tears both blurring my vision and streaming downward to short-circuit my device’s keyboard.

Graciously Concede OR Shut The F 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!

Lemme know if there’s still hope?

`

In a previous post… whilst speculating about Donald J. Trump’s motivation for squirreling away classified documents within his gaudy, golden digs (aka his unsecured, Mar-a-Lago, moat-less castle), the most logical conclusion turned out to be his insatiable greed.

ASIDE #1: Seeing how the bigoted, deplorable Dumb Donald (in the role of acting prez), had once spitballed the insane notion of dredging a moat all along the U.S. / Mexico border and, worse yet, stocking it with ravenous, razor toothed alligators and slithering, sharp fanged, venomous snakes; all fully capable of maiming / slaughtering any asylum seekers… well… one would’ve expected him to secure his own manor’s border in that manner; especially since he must’ve been aware of ex-FBI-er Peter Strzok fingering Mar-a-Lago as a foreign spy magnet; seeing how Chinese spy, Yujing Zhang, had actually, quite easily breached that very estate.

So… ahem… need anyone say anything more? Uh, make that a yes; do check out a few more details to my believable, Trump-sells-out America theory…

For instance, it’d be absolutely in character, were we to witness him auctioning off uber-sensitive state secrets to his highest bidders (aka his best buddies and America’s sworn enemies). In the end, he would not only wind up cashing in, avariciously, but also lashing out, revoltingly, against America’s 18th century Founding Fathers and the slew of 21st century investigators taking a look-see into his shady shenanigans, all of whom he detests deep down to his (allegedly) human DNA.

We’re speaking of investigators, such as the FBI’s Director (Trump’s own appointee) Christopher A. Wray and the Department of Justice’s Attorney General Merrick Garland. And lest we forget, Donny is also harboring a ferocious grudge against the [1] U.S. House Select Committee’s members (inclusive of two Republicans) who’ve been exposing every aspect of his nefarious January 6th attempted coup, [2] U.S. Congresspersons who had impeached him (twice), and [3] each and every American (I among them) who had wisely voted against him (both in 2016 and 2020).

In today’s post… whilst speculating, anew, I did come up with, yet, another scenario; how Trump could also, quite easily, further (ab)use these ill-gotten classified documents as LEVERAGE; playing these documents not unlike stay out of jail trump cards; his way, at least within his own (alleged) mind, of ensuring that, up till the very day he takes his final, Hell-ward bound, downward escalator ride, he’ll never, ever face down his long overdue, Earthly comeuppance.

ASIDE #2: Sadly, we could take little comfort, even were the FBI and National Archives to report they’ve retrieved and re-secured all of the missing top secret materials. Such a dubious claim would not preclude the all too real possibility that Trump would’ve had plenty of time to make photocopies and secrete them at… well… for now… only Donny and God know where.

ASIDE #3: Naturally, IF that “where” is where the sun don’t shine, it’d behoove the Feds to order up a colonoscopy. And, based upon Donny’s fondness for “burying” documents “at sea”, the FBI ringing up Roto-Rooter to ream out Mar-a-Lago’s sewer pipes, wouldn’t be a bad idea, either.

So, just how might that Trumpian LEVERAGE go down?

Well, suppose that one or more of these Top Secret documents would totally expose an American Achilles heel; instantaneously render the entire homeland vulnerable to full blown, nuclear attacks?

One could easily envision the temper tantrum throwing, retired fake prez, in full blown, male Karen mode; engaging in a ranting and raving stand-off with the Feds; his bullhorn mashed up to his (sink ships) loose lips, bleating out his terrorist demands.

Now, WHAT IF the one and only way to stop him from publicly revealing such vulnerabilities / avoid such a global holocaust, would be for the Feds to cave into the following, utterly unreasonable and insane, lemme-do-whatever-I-GD-please-or-else Trumpian terms / ultimatum…

You guys have absolutely no other choice but to…

  • forfeit/fork over all of Fort Knox’s gold to me,
  • reinstall me as a non-term limited president
  • cancel all future fed, state and local elections,
  • establish, in their stead, my Trumpian dynasty,
  • round up / lock up each and every Democrat
  • deport or execute all of the people I hate*

*non-whites, non-straits, non-binary individuals, non-Christians, atheists / agnostics, the aged and ailing, feminists, Democrats, liberals, progressives, critical thinkers, et al.

Alleged, mucked up thoughts from the alleged mind of Donald J. Trump?
`

Long Sigh…

It’s damned near impossible to come up with anything even remotely resembling an “everybody lives happily after” epilogue to what already seems destined to become the final sentence of the final paragraph to the final chapter of American History.

So… How Would the Remainees React?

`

Suffice to say, ever since has-been Trump took his downward escalator ride, he has been doing his damnedest to take down America / the entire world. Along the way, he has been pandering, primarily, to his absolutely irrational and uncivil voter base; i.e., winning them over to his side simply by exploiting and validating their hopeless ignorance and hardcore bigotry.

In all likelihood, his staunch supporters (mindless cultists, Borg drones, etc.), obsess, daily / hourly over how best to suck up to their Fascist Daddy. What more could anyone expect from those who’ve succumbed to no questions asked / allowed subservience. In extreme cases, some have even claimed they’d die on his behalf. And statistics don’t lie, seeing how…

“On Tuesday, the last full day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the [Covid-19] death toll reached 400,000 — a once-unthinkable number. More than 100,000 Americans have perished in the pandemic in just the past five weeks.”

National Public Radio News • Reported by Will Stone • January 19, 2021 [read more here]

Granted, Coronavirus deaths have spanned all ideologies, however a disproportionate chunk of the fatalities did prove to be Daddy Donny’s very own (and owned) anti-masker, infantile whiners.

Let’s now delve deeper into the power of Trump’s unappetizing words (which make normal people want to puke, YET, get Trumper drones salivating)…

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,”

Donald J. Trump • Sioux Center, Iowa • 23 January 2016 [read more here]
`

Keeping that in mind, let’s run down what is, THANK GOD, (so far), ONLY a thought experiment.

Suppose, in the not too distant future, Trump convenes one of his train wreck rallies where (in the midst of one of his lose-his-train-of-thought, rambling, utterly worthless, screechy speeches) he abruptly halts and barks out the command, “ATTACK!”

At that point, his armed to the teeth goon squad storms into the arena; roughs up, rounds up and marches out fifty percent of the attendees. When his speech resumes, DJT simply informs the remainees that, come sundown (local time), he will order his detainees’ mass execution.

So… How Would the Remainees React?

Sans even two critical thinking brain cells to rub together (and nary a tear shed for their detained, soon to be needlessly slaughtered / dead families and friends), each of his drones would have no choice but to conclude, “Oh well… he must’ve had a pretty damned good reason!” At that point each of them would, FIRST, cut Trump a give-till-it-hurts campaign contribution check and, NEXT, on cue, commence to bleating out…

“USA!… USA! … USA! … USA! … USA! … USA!…” (translation)
“Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! …”

Let ‘Em Eat Gas!

`

When we consider the multiple, concurrent, top level, official investigations into fascistic, narcissistic, psychotic, moronic, demonic Donald J. Trump’s chronic, Anti-American activities, it’s likely that one of two scenarios have been playing out.

The truth seekers are…

  • EITHER methodically backing him into an inescapable corner.
  • OR, in actuality, these “detectives” are defective / feckless and, as such, once more, will never, ever punish DJT for any of his deplorable, demolish democracy plots.

Let’s flesh this out…

According to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the whole point of this past week’s FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago digs was to recover box loads of highly classified, ultra-sensitive and totally unguarded, nuclear related documents. Repeat…

UNGUARDED NUCLEAR DOCUMENTS!

Check out this “hmm moment”. Might Trump’s possession of such top secret materials tap into his avaricious, vengeance based, anything-for-a-fast-buck intent to sell out America to his evil playmates / boy toys Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, et al?

Most assuredly, such a plot would be totally consistent to Trump’s MO. Lest we forget, he did order his MAGA minions to storm the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021; did attempt to overturn the 2020 elections, burn down democracy and wear out the White House welcome mat.

If the above mentioned investigators are truly dead serious about staving off the death of America, at the very least, via the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment, Trump must be permanently barred from seeking / attaining elective office. It would not be a bad idea to forever forbid him from ever heading up any corporation, too. And to be on the safe side…

Ditto such retribution re the Trumpian crime family, as (w)hole, too.

Denying such corrupt entities their evil endeavors would make for quite the study of character (or lack there of). Hmm, to survive, might they buy into Ivanka Trump’s tone deaf, snotty, snooty “Find Something New” / “let ’em eat cake” ‘tude? Naw, truth be told, they’d likely wind up penniless, homeless, in tatters and cooking up rat shit to both feed themselves and stay warm.

In absence of this long overdue punishment…

Donald J. Trump can and will run for president again; where win or lose, he will take out America.

Look, let’s spell out a suitable, non-violent (yet retaliatory) MO; speak in the lingo that only fascist Trumps and their sycophants can understand.

Looming fascism is neither conducive to our sense of well-being nor to building consumer confidence. Unless / until there are reasonable assurances that freedom will prevail and inflation will fail, I, personally, do not intend to spend one penny beyond what’s necessary to purchase food / provisions and keep my dwelling’s electricity, natural gas and water flowing. As for filling up my car?

Let ‘em eat gas!

Memorial Day (Catch) 22

Good citizens need not even near a savvy, savant status
in order to achieve the true blue spirit of Memorial Day.
Honestly educated, everyday Janes and Joes are able to
venerate valiant Americans who, throughout our nearly
2½ century history, selflessly served their country as the
sentinels and saviors of disciplined democracy, essential
liberty and basic happiness; soldiers who, in a heartbeat,
were always ready, willing and able to make the ultimate
sacrifice on behalf of their contemporaries and posterity!
Ironic, how this spirit of inclusion even extends outward
to ignorant, ignoble ingrates; e.g. today’s MAGA maniacs,
who utterly fail to savor Genuine America’s robust flavor;
savages who only feel ferocious fealty for their false god;
his sole, soulless intent: To trump Freedom with Fascism.

Get Well Stephen Colbert (et al)

This IS Final(?) Jeopardy!

`

Today’s Category: Late Night TV

Today’s Clue…

In ADDITION to Stephen Colbert, James Corden,
Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers & Jimmy Fallon all
hosting talk shows, they have THIS in common.

`

Players, you have 30 seconds to express
your response in the form of a Question…

(Anyone opting to actually “compete”, should
think up that Question prior to scrolling down.)

`

`

`

`

`

What is being fully vaxxed
YET, contracting Covid-19?

`

TRUE Jeopardy Notation insists we punctuate our responses with a “?”, HOWEVER, there can be no question re the medical ramifications; i.e., while the vaccines are successfully preventing serious and deadly consequences, humans can STILL become coronavirus infected; STILL easily infect others.

And that STILL fully validates this layperson’s contention, from the very onset of this godforsaken plague:

`

Only a WORLDWIDE MASK MANDATE can help ensure
we expeditiously snuff out & bury the coronavirus; i.e.,
avoid an apocalyptic scenario where one, maybe more
of its variants void the vaccines; to snuff out & bury us!

`

There can be no question that sicko / psycho Donald J. Trump’s politicization of the pandemic has infected and spread throughout the vast body of his MAGA Maniacs / Morons / Malcontents (and beyond); thereby resulting in their all too damned common, cavalier attitude…

…their absolutely indefensible, “offhand, indifferent, casual, dismissive, insouciant, unconcerned; supercilious, patronizing, condescending, disdainful, scornful, contemptuous, couldn’t-care-less, devil-may-care” state of chronic insanity!

Quoted synonyms courtesy of the Oxford American Writer’s Thesaurus

Upon closer scrutiny of this entire mess, matters pan out as the following, grave, glaringly obvious, public health threat…

  • Bad enough… within the entertainment industry, ALL five of those mentioned TV personalities enjoy a vast circle of friends/contacts; far more so than average folks such as you and I do.
  • Even worse… those friends/contacts also enjoy a vast circle of friends/contacts.
  • Worst of all… it’s a near certainty that at some point, some of these infected people will come into contact with immunocompromised and unvaxxed individuals.

It’s at that juncture where the potential for needless suffering / dying enters the big picture.

Returning to the earliest of our pandemic days… we witnessed Colbert, Corden, Kimmel, Meyers and Fallon responsibly sheltering/isolating (e.g., doing their talk show shtick sans LIVE audiences; Zoom interviewing their guests.

More to the point… these hosts and guests, alike, had been just as witty, personable and entertaining as ever. Sure, I do get it, it’s no fun for comedians / entertainers to not cop that buzz; all courtesy of their applauding, cheering, hooting, whooping it up, LIVE audiences; HOWEVER

In the end… the operative word becomes LIVE; as in keeping humanity ALIVE.

The time has come for these five entertainers to cease needlessly Jeopardizing humanity (case in point, Colbert’s covid has even spread to his house band’s impresario, Jon Batiste. Need I say more?) YES, I do need to say more. They must lead by example; demonstrate to the rest of humanity how to behave in a responsible, respectable manner.

In other words… Guys, PLEASE, set aside your egos; resume performing from your covid bunkers with only the bare minimum, production crew contingent. If this is any help, try harboring in your heads, hearts and souls the sentitments popularized by singer Vera Lynn; the lyrics which solemnly vow…

“We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day”

Granted, my authoring a 700 word count blog, devoted to TV talk show hosts, may, superficially, seem silly. However, one cannot understate the beneficial impact this quintet (in particular Colbert, Meyers and Kimmel) has been making upon the national political discourse; how their speaking truth to power via “jokes”, serves a far more significant purpose.

Such courageous comedians are heightening the awareness / enlightenment of their Stateside audiences; the very people who, don’t normally pay close attention to the ever-present dangers; the grave threats to liberty and democracy; such as those posed by the STILL unpunished, insurrectionist and fascist X-Prez Trump and his entire freak show entourage.

Long pensive sigh… I now conclude this post, just as I’ve done for the past two+ years…

Now More Than Ever… PLEASEEVERYBODY
