To Sum Up Da Summit (One Quick Limerick #045)

 

Nuclear nuts to meet! “Baggage” in tow!
Could Summit talks, forestall mushroom clouds’ glow?
Ol’ Grumpy’s goals? DO NOT grumble!
O’er tie / tongue? DO NOT stumble!
The expectations bar has been set low!

 

 

World Stage Bad Actors Flub Their Lines

We find our world teetering on the precipice of WW-III. Two bad actors are flubbing their lines while standing upon the world stage. A foolhardy, power tripping American butthead is butting heads with his likeminded, North Korean counterpart.

Both “leaders” are oblivious to the fact that their making even the slightest misstep could result in a slip and fall… one which would force humanity to take the final, fatal plunge.

Let’s take one step back from that narrow, slippery ledge to ask…

Just how did we ever get ourselves mired in this mucked up mess?

Speaking from an American’s standpoint…

In our democracy, to become empowered, all any wicked wannabe leader need do is BS a low information, Fox News brainwashed electorate… snag 50% + 1 of their votes (in key Electoral College states).

Next, to maintain his chokehold on power, he’ll serve up a heapin’ helpin’ of pseudo patriotism to drown out the voice of reason… the common decency POV expressed by the fourth estate and other legitimate dissenters. And worse yet, he’ll wrongfully vilify all of his spot-on critics.

Of course, this power hungry entity knows that, no matter how much he Fs over the masses, he can still count on that 50% + 1 blind loyalty. Might we even be talking about a massive, chronic case of Stockholm Syndrome (i.e., low self esteem citizens deeply involved in an abusive relationship with their political lover)?

In THE END we wind up with the powerful screwing over the powerless.

Indeed, he willfully turns on (betrays) all average Jane and Joe Americans… both his turned off dissenters and (ironically) even his still turned on (aroused) supporters.

Points to Ponder…

Seeing how it’s likely impossible that anyone can ever persuade such a “leader” to open up his ears, eyes and mind, is it now too complicated and too late to legally remove him from office?

If that answer is yes, let’s promise to wave to each other while taking our final fatal plunge into oblivion… i.e., if, in the heat of WW-III, there’d even be sufficient time for such pleasantries.

 

 

Bad Political Traits Oft Breed True

America’s Founding Fathers had conceived of the Electoral College to prevent voters from picking pathetic presidents. Unfortunately, too frequently, these College “students” have “flunked out”. They’ve failed to perceive negative character traits and ideological mutations, which pollute the political gene pool… breed true… resulting in one lousy administration propagating the next.

Let’s assign a title to this political procreative process…

The Book of Political Genesis

In the beginning there was Ronald Reagan’s revolting régime… which begat George H.W. Bush’s thousand points of blight… which begat Bill Clinton’s Animal House Oval Office… which begat war criminal / torturer George W. Bush’s reign of terror…

Ronald Reagan ~ In violation of Logan Act of 1799 (which expressly forbids private citizens from meddling in foreign affairs), private citizen Reagan executed an end run around President Jimmy Carter to cut a secret, dirty deal with Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, who agreed to delay releasing his 52 U.S. Embassy hostages. That made Carter look wimpy in the eyes of the voters and, in turn, assured Reagan victory. Reagan’s payoff to Khomeini was providing him sufficient quantities of US arms and spare parts to help Iran fight their war against Iraq.

In essence, Reagan had prolonged the hostages’ misery… indeed, had endangered their very lives… just for his own political gain.

With that dirty deal with Iran under his belt, Ronnie then raged onward to mercilessly bust labor unions and, via Reaganomics, devastate the American / global economy… plunge the middleclass into poverty… the already impoverished into abject squalor.

George H.W. Bush ~ Reagan’s VP succeeded his X-boss and succeeded at heaping yet another four years’ worth of Reaganomics manure upon the downtrodden masses. He wound up mucking up the U.S. economy so badly that the PO’d voters were more than ready to vote for a Democrat, instead.

Bill Clinton ~ His “It’s the economy, stupid,” presidential campaign catchphrase resonated well with average Jane and Joe voters. He had successfully ridden the tidal wave of voter discontent to rid America of GHWB.

Alas, Billy Boy’s inability to keep his pants zipped up only served to screw up his image. His Republican opponents constantly had him in political CYA mode. In other words, Billy’s infamous female intern, Monica Lewinsky, had helped him blow away a brighter future for America.

And that, in turn, tarnished the image of Clinton’s VP, Al Gore, who had had high hopes for perpetuating eight more years of Democratic Party values. Instead, Billy’s sexcapades had put the voters into a “throw the bums out” mood, which had afforded Gore’s Republican opponent, George W. Bush, the ILLUSION of maturity, morality and respectability.

George W. Bush ~ Knowing he could not win merely on smoke and mirrors, alone, he needed help. Entering stage (far) right was Florida Governor (and W’s own brother) Jeb, who gleefully corrupted the Sunshine State… morphed it into a devoid of free elections Banana Republic “nation”. The net result was a too close to call tally of that state’s ballots.

Following Election Day, for over one month, the political firestorm blazed. The flames were soon licking at the doors of the corrupt U.S. Supreme Court, where five rabidly unscrupulous, archconservative judges practically soiled their underwear in ecstasy while coming to the aid of the lawless Bush family. It hadn’t bothered them, in the least that their ruling had denied Al Gore the recount, which he had been legally entitled to. All that mattered to them was installing the corrupt King George II.

But, after only seven months in office, W had grown listless and bored. Ergo, he decided to take a much-undeserved vacation. So eager to slack off, he had flipped off his August 6, 2001 Presidential Daily Briefing… an ominous heads up, titled:

“Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US”

Had W heeded that warning, as it turned out, he would’ve had five weeks to beef up America’s defenses. Seeing how W had chosen not to lift one finger to thwart al Qaeda’s evil plot to take out America… did zip zero nothing to preserve, protect and defend America while Osama’s assault was going down… it becomes easy for us to conclude that the Bush 43 admin had actually wanted America to be attacked.

Even worse, W’s wranglers put a spin on his getting caught with his CIC pants down… created the flat out ILLUSION that their little wittle boy president was a big badass, courageous leader (well at least they correctly assessed the “ass” part of his image).

What ensued next was not a pretty picture. W opted to go to war against an ideology… one, which knows no specific geographical location. He first deployed the troops to bomb the crap out of Afghanistan’s boulders and dirt and then trained his crosshairs on Iraq’s oil.

W told bald-faced lies to the U.S. Senate to give them the impression that Saddam Hussein had ties to 9/11… to successfully dupe Senators into green lighting a bogus war against Iraq.

Ergo, on March 19, 2003, W needlessly deployed U.S. troops… unnecessarily put them in harms way. The resultant destabilization of that entire region has made our world a far more dangerous place.

As of my blog posting time, war criminal mass murderer / torturer W is the butcher who slaughtered an estimated 251,000 people, inclusive of 4,497 American troops.

Barack Obama ~ His administration has been the rare exception… one where recessive, good political traits have surfaced. Enjoy them while they last because his likely successor will be…

Donald Trump ~ He exhibits outrageously inappropriate ignorant, insensitive, incendiary, sexist, and racist attitudes which are totally unpresidential and do not represent what the real America is all about.

But, he is correct about one thing. His telling us the 2016 November elections will be rigged. But, what he isn’t telling us is that he will be the one who’ll be rigging them. Most assuredly, he has the wherewithal to muck everything up just to try to sate his own massive ego and political lust.

Since the Electoral College “class of 2016” is likely to flunk out just like their predecessors… Trump’s bad political traits will breed true. As for what that will begat?

Are There Any Anti-DT ETs Out There?

Voters will oft swear during presidential election years… swear they’ll leave America if they wind up witnessing the Inauguration Day swearing in of a tyrant. With despot Donald Trump now one step closer to that end… with “Bernie or Bust” folks aiding and abetting that grotesque monster, this means Earth, itself, is also one step closer to THE END.

After all, once Trump is in possession of… possessed by… the nuclear launch codes, very few Earthlings could ever hope to escape his hotheaded hatred and wrath… and the resultant apocalyptic aftermath.

This means it’s not too early for survivor wannabes to start planning our escape. But, just how far would we need to go? For starters, check out this Top Ten List of purported, post WW-III terrestrial havens.

10. Switzerland

9. Tuvalu

8. New Zealand

7. Bhutan

6. Chile

5. Iceland/Greenland

4. Denmark

3. Malta

2. Ireland

1. Fiji

The following vid will elaborate how these ten nations might survive. Afterwards, I’ll add my two cent’s worth.

Now… re that above video vignette, I find it hard to believe that these ten nations will be fully exempt from the sunlight blocking nuclear winter and the massive levels of unleashed, lethal radiation following global thermonuclear exchange.

So, where do we go from there? Well, it’s time to think big. So, let’s all meet back here after we take a little spin around our “neighborhood”, via this link and/or the vid below…

So, now that we’ve scoped out the surreal, real estate, it should be clear that, while these images do prove to be breathtaking sights… breathtaking, literally, is the operative word! By human standards these worlds are inhospitable.

The four outer gas giant planets have no visible surfaces and, as for their moons, with the exception of Saturn’s Titan (with its dense nitrogen/methane atmosphere), the rest are in a vacuum… or close to it. And the whole kit and caboodle of these spheres is freeze your booty off cold, too!

As for the inner rocky surfaced planets, Mercury, in closest proximity to the Sun, gets totally “fried”. Next up is Venus, a thoroughly nasty world… sulfuric acid clouds, massive amounts of CO2, crushing atmospheric pressure and a runaway greenhouse effect resulting in 800 – 900° F surface temperatures.

Only Mars seems to have any real potential and, even then, it would require the concerted efforts of terraformers, who’d likely need several millennia to make the red planet totally fit for human life.

Long story short, there’s no place like home… no known place like our home world.

So where does that leave us? Well, once again, we’re going to have to think big… this time, REALLY BIG! We have two options to totally escape Tyrant Trump…

EITHER the American voters will need to come to their senses by this November and elect Hillary Clinton…

OR we, who blog at WordPress, will need to, ASAP, harness the aggregate power of our blogging network to attract the attention of some truly out of this world “Followers”. Let’s band together to fire off a virtual reality flare… in hopes that extraterrestrials may be monitoring our Internet blogging activity.

Towards that end… I blog our desperate, interstellar plea for help!

ATTN: Benevolent alien spacefarers everywhere! Please dispatch, immediately, as many starships as you can spare. While we, of the planet Earth, could never expect you to rescue the multimillions of us attempting to flee from madman Donald Trump, perhaps you can save a small portion of us? Maybe transplant a few good women, children and men to an Earthlike new world? Please hurry! Please save us before it’s too late!
