Cell Block Bunkies?

`

Soooooo… we now know that President Joe Biden, just like Donald J. Trump, has been lax with keeping America’s secrets secret; both dudes allegedly guilty of squirreling away improperly secured documents; the very type both should’ve returned to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) at the completion of their past governmental duties (if not sooner).

Needless to say, Biden’s weak claim that many of these docs were stashed in his locked garage does fail to pass muster as a “Keep Out” sign. Nope, that would never spook the type of creeps renown for engaging in espionage.

Soooooo… are we supposed to assume that if foreign and domestic spies had never opted to hot-wire and repurpose Joe’s vintage Corvette (as a getaway car), that would mean what? That they were never, ever there?

Alas, Joe has now lost his “trusted adult in the room” status; i.e., will find difficult any reclamation that he’ll always act smartly when dealing with all future, sensitive intelligence.

On the plus side… unlike Trump, Biden [1] appears unmotivated by avarice and/or evil intent, [2] did opt to out himself and [3] has been fully cooperating with all NARA and Department of Justice (DOJ) personnel.

On the negative side… the blowback; namely, how, right on cue, the Stateside journalistic hacks / talking head imbeciles, who staff the insufferable, hardcore right wing noise machine (e.g. Fox “News”, One America “News”, “Newsmax”, etc.) have been working overtime; going hog wild; squealing like the fascist pigs that they are; essentially saying that IF the Feds intend to call out Trump / establish his culpability / perhaps even convict and incarcerate him, THEN Biden deserves the identical outcome.

And you know what… I’d classify such an eventuality a win-win. IF that’s the one and only way anyone will ever, finally mete out Trump’s long, Long, LONG overdue punishment, I’d say, WHY NOT?

Albeit unconventional and unintentional, the forever uncrowning of Trump could become the Biden Administration’s crowning glory!

On the plus side… once (to save on Secret Service protection cost overuns) Trump and Biden become cell block bunkies, Vice President Kamala Harris would become America’s first female president. Beyond that, such an outcome could easily past muster as the perfect “KEEP OUT” sign (posted outside the White House / Oval Office to forewarn all Trumpers / MAGA malcontents).

What would truly Make America Great Again, would be to, once and for all, officially quash the quadrennial, presidential aspirations of one Donald J. Trump; aka that existential threat to Mother Earth, Lady Liberty and Humanity!

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.

Cannabis Connoisseurs: Heads-Up!

It’s High Time To Vote!

`

Seeing how…

  • President Biden has freed folks imprisoned for mere pot possession
  • The Stateside 2022 midterm elections are now one mere month off…

That leaves us with these key questions:

  • Will the cannabis connoisseurs’ celebratory clouds clear away in time?
  • At least long enough for this clique to cast their appreciative ballots?
  • More to the point, will they even remember that it’s high time to vote?

In the balance is how Planet Earth and Democracy could go up in smoke!

All wordplay aside…

Be We, the U.S. citizens, voting via either absentee ballot or in person, the deadline for submitting our completed ballots is Tuesday, November 8th. What’s crucial, here / now, is our correctly assessing each candidate’s temperament and intentions.

The Definition of Political Characters:

Lest We ever forget, the two-pronged goal of most Republican candidates (in particular, the peculiar Trumpian tools), is the amassment of untold power and accumulation of incalculable filthy lucre; none of which shall ever be used for constructive purposes; e.g. working towards the prevention… correction… working towards the mitigation of catastrophic environmental collapse. For, indeed, it’s already too late to totally prevent this from going down.

And tho 2022’s Democratic candidates, by and large, frequently fall short of what we do expect… correction… must demand of our leaders, for the time being, they’re all we’ve got left; and as such, they must emerge victorious.

Here’s why…

Post 2022’s Election Day: IF Trumper Republicans manage to TAKE OUT both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, for the next two years, bare minimum, Biden can count on his vetoing pens constantly running out of ink.

Even worse… Joe’s foes are already chomping at the bit to trump up charges against him; to hand him his political ass on a platter; to boot his butt out the White House rear door (and they’ll likely ditto this impeachment / removal process re VP Kamala Harris, too); such unnecessary, unjustifiable ousters all downward spiraling to…

Post 2024’s Election Day: The above-mentioned machinations will facilitate Donald J. Trump’s re-entrance (from stage far, Far, FAR RIGHT) into the world’s spotlight. And once he TAKES OUT the White House, again, whatever is left of America will rapidly degenerate into HIS intolerable theocratic, fascistic régime.

Post (Future) Election Days: HUH? What Election Days? Seeing how Trump had flat-out refused to accept that We the People of the United States of America had, rightfully so, handed him his sorry ass, we can assume that he’ll never, ever accept the U.S. Constitution’s two presidential terms and out stipulation.

Even worse… It’d be Trump’s own MAGA minions’ domination of the U.S. House, Senate and Supreme Court, that, in THE END. would crown him an irremovable tyrant; allow him to oppress the masses even once his throne eventually morphs into his death bed. And even then,, we could not totally escape that ass’s asphyxiating chokehold; i.e., seeing how, by then, he’d have bastardized the presidential line of succession; thereby empowering his bloodline, exclusively.

Such a sucky outcome would render the key question:

Sans a freedom-based America, how long will our global family be able to thrive, let alone survive?

The utterly unlikable answer:

Once Trump copycats, worldwide, hold up MAGA america [sic] as their paradigm EITHER their myopic politics / economics OR Climate Change catastrophes will lay waste to their homelands (whichever disaster overcomes humanity first).

Today’s message, especially to my voting Stateside compatriots…

It’d appear that (within our regrettable two party ONLY system) Democrats, flaws and all, are our only hope to resuscitate / reinvigorate Mother Earth and Lady Liberty.

Hardware v. Hard-Luck: Quick Limerick

`

As most of us rational folks, worldwide, have known (all along), Donald J. Trump opted to fabricate his BIG LIE rather than face up to the WHOLE TRUTH; namely, how he lost, BIG TIME, in the 2020 Presidential Election; due to his [1] failure to act (even remotely) presidential and (more to the point) [2] his flunking Pandemic Management 101.

FINAL VOTE TALLY

81,282,916 = Biden
74,223,369 = Trump

  • A sore loser’s hard-luck story can never explain all that had spawned Trump’s loss.
  • Metaphorically speaking, loose hardware fasteners had secured Biden’s victory

BTW, today’s (heavy on the hardware) limerick was inspired by the following astute observation…

“To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”

Abraham Maslow
`

About all I can add, other than the poetry, forthcoming, is that people who wield such hammers will be far more inclined to hit a finger nail (YEOUCH!) than to nail down the problem at hand…

`

A hardwired right wing, wingnut, with loose screw
Into the West Wing, dive bombed, bolted, blew
Recklessly let microbes’ strikes
Hammer down coffins’ nails / spikes
While gravesites’ daisies, all pushed up and grew

Covid-19: Over and Out?

`

On the 2020 virtual campaign trail, Joe Biden vowed (words to the effect) that, if elected as the next POTUS, he’d get the pandemic under control by allowing medical science to trump political science.

This past Sunday, during the President’s interview with 60 Minutes correspondent / anchor Scott Pelley, mid-term election year, political science overruled and forced Joe to go off script; to declare recklessly…

“The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it … but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing.”

Joseph Biden • 18 September 2022
`

Not so fast… say two POLITICO reporters, who debunk realistically…

“Despite Biden’s statement, Covid has continued to exact a toll in the United States and around the world. The John Hopkins [sic]* Coronavirus Resource Center lists more than 2 million Covid cases in the country in the last 28 days, with hundreds dying from the disease every day.” [Read Full Article Here]

David Cohen and Adam Cancryn • 09/18/2022 08:47 PM EDT
`

Not so fast… say I, too. Let’s now rewind, replay and rehash the POTUS’ injudicious words and illogic; namely, “If you notice, no one’s wearing masks”, ergo, “Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape.”

Yes, Mr. Biden, unfortunately, I HAVE NOTICED, first hand, the maskless masses; and, trust me, that is hardly the accomplishment you may believe it to be. Au contraire, this is not only the epitome of alarming, human selfishness, thoughtlessness and recklessness, it’s also one of the major reasons why THE PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER; why the Coronavirus (fully capable of routinely, prolifically reinventing itself), may even result in vaccine resistant variants.

To say the very least… it’s that anti-mask pigheadedness that I find so baffling and maddening. My gawd, it’s merely a piece of cloth, folks! WTF is so tough about covering the ol’ honker and pie hole when we’re milling about crowded, indoor, public milieus? Why the calloused disregard for (hatred towards?) members of our human family?

To say a bit more… there may be one glimmer of reality to be found within Biden’s “good shape” quip; specifically his qualifying word, “seems”; which makes it seem as if he had attempted some in-real-time, walking back of his own words.

Let’s hope that’s a good sign that Biden is fully aware of these truths, which should be self-evident…

  • In life, things are NOT ALWAYS what they seem to be
  • Of all of those things, the coronavirus must top the list
  • Every seemingly good leader must be mindful of all that

Politics must never trump Science… disrespect Corona-V (and its “descendants”) and Covid-19 will hang around / plague humanity until the years 2219, 2220; 2221 and 2222… if not longer.

Wealth v. Health: Quick Limerick

`

Rabid capitalists; procure obscene wealth
Avid virologists; secure public health
When well-heeled asses; political
Trump unhealed masses; ill; critical
Microbes breed / mutate; in relative stealth

`

`

SIDEBAR: Tho the Biden Admin’s pandemic management skills readily trump the Trump Régime’s, alas, that’s traceable to the shockingly, low-set expectations bar. Joe has yet to totally “sell” the public on the fact that even vaccinated people can become carriers / super-spreaders of both Coronavirus Classic and its batcrap crazy communicable Variants.

Covid-19 will continue plaguing humanity UNTIL / UNLESS we do the bare minimum… BARE MINIMUM; namely, mask up in all indoor, public settings.

What makes Biden’s ‘tude even more astounding is how (not unlike Trump), the coronavirus infected him (in Joe’s case twice); mostly because (not unlike Trump), he goes publicly maskless.

Uh… to do WHAT?
Project a badass image???
Does anyone, actually, fall for such rubbish???

Of course, Biden is all too aware that he IS the face of the Democratic Party. Ergo, he dares not cover that face with a pandemic mask (especially in the heat of a midterm election year). To do so, would invite an endless barrage of stupid, certifiable, merciless, hardcore, right wing media taunting / bullying.

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.

CommonSenseTom • 7 September 2022
`

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!

Twenty-Four Skiddoo? Quick Limerick

`

PREFACE: It’s so tragic that a verse about President Joe Biden’s reversal of political fortune is even needed, BUT, he did do this to himself. To fill in the particulars, check out both the poetry and prose that follow…

`

Pale Blue Biden is too meek; too mellow
Fights for Human Rights? NOPE! Not that fellow!
He’d rather pamper right wingers
Who whip him, middle fingers
MAGA Red OrangeMan soon defeats Joe Yellow?

`

Biden’s tanked out approval rating is linked to his impossible quest for bipartisanship with Trumper Republicans. In the process, he’s been sacrificing every iota of his dignity / every vestige of human decency, and, worse yet, screwing over the very voters who empowered him.

Pollsters are already predicting that, come November, Democrats will lose control of both the U.S. House and Senate and, come 2024, will also lose the White House. Worse yet, Biden’s likely successor will be the still unpunished perpetrator of the January 6th Insurrection, the Fascist / narcissist Donald J. Trump who, once installed will NEVER leave office. Alas, Dictatorship will trump Democracy.

Biden could still win back the voters by signing Executive Orders that’d both keep his campaign promises and, even better, not require any Congressional approval.

But, will he?

The Great American Stink-Out!

`

Seeing how, Stateside, the two-party political juggernaut chronically churns out corporately owned and operated, ragged, non-rugged Prez Wannabes, come the 2024 election cycle, we can count on catching, YET, another whiff of… TA DA…

`

Fusty Musty Donald J. Trump v. Old Spice(less) Joe Biden

`

Here’s the rub. Biden has yet to fully grasp the severity of the hardcore, Trumper Republicans’ lopsided political playing field; aka their malodorous War on Democracy; their anti-American conspiracy, which absolutely reeks of extreme, unconstitutional, voter suppression laws and egregiously gerrymandered districts.

As such, naïve Biden has lulled himself into the false impression that ALL HE NEED DO is merely air out his stale, “I’m NOT Trump!” campaign motto / mantra and that’ll do what? Snag him a second term?

Sorry to say, Joe IS already miscasting his upcoming, political race in Aesopian terms; i.e., Biden in the role of the svelte, speedy Hare; Trump in the role of the roly-poly, lumbering Tortoise. And the Hare is likely in for a rude awakening. How so?

Well, according to Aesop…

“The story concerns a Hare who ridicules a slow-moving Tortoise. Tired of the Hare’s arrogant behaviour, the Tortoise challenges him to a race. The hare soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, takes a nap midway through the race. When the Hare awakes, however, he finds that his competitor, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him.”

Wikipedia Essay [Read More Here]
`

Applying a Poli-Sci spin to Aesop…

Come November 2024, Hare Biden’s 2020 supporters will EITHER vote for less electable, 3rd and 4th party presidential wannabes, OR leave blank their ballots’ presidential section, OR not show up at the polls AT ALL; hence Tortoise Trump’s Electoral College victory and the defeat / demise of Ecology, Democracy, Liberty, Literacy and Civility.

Truth be told, President Biden desperately needs an unconventional, highly inventive, campaign manager; a person who could far better articulate dedicated, Anti-Trump / Anti-Fascism messaging; PLUS orchestrate a modicum of mischief. In that dual capacity, I just might prove Joe’s go-to guy.

Here’s the skinny. My game plan draws upon basic, postpubescent biochemistry. You see, nearly all adults are well-armed to most effectively present our Trump Trump / Dump Trump rationale / sentiments; even better, in our down to the nitty-gritty, pitty manner. Actually, in this instance, it’d be better to be underarmed.

Ahem, ahem, what I’m proposing, here, is (a drum roll please)…

`

The Great American Stink-Out!

`

The onset of our olfactory onslaught would focus on consistently, attending Trump rallies; i.e., PUBLICLY baring arms… uh… our underarms… our unwashed, no applied deodorant / antiperspirant pits. And, just to ensure everything “ripens” to perfection, a mandatory shaving moratorium also needs to be in effect for the duration. Now, here’s where this really, Really, REALLY GETS GOOD! As we all know, the way Ma Nature has designed us, the more passionate we feel about matters, the more we sweat and the more we stink!

Our concerted efforts to curl nose hairs would run the entire 2024 election cycle; from its earliest days all the way up to the close of the Election Day polls. We’d be targeting, in particular, the climate change intensified, sweltering, summertime heatwaves to peaceably protest outside the Republican National Convention venue; with all of our bared arms raised skyward.

`

Yep, we’d all be literally Stinkin’ to High Heaven!

`

Naturally, we’d need to reassure all prepubescents, who, understandably so, would be feeling a tad left out of all of our funky fun. Not to worry, kiddies, you can always raid your elders’ dirty clothes hampers to snag the requisite, pre-stinked T-shirts. Even if they prove a bit oversized, they could always be repurposed as capes OR (once nailed to a dowel) waved about like flags.

`

Now, that’s what I’d brand as the e-PIT-ome of patriotism!

`

And, just to make damned sure that each and every MAGA Maggot / Moron we’d meet can totally grasp the true blue meaning of our odor, we’d need to silkscreen emblazon our T-shirts with the message:

`

Ya think I stink bad?
Trump’s Fascist Stench
will be the Absolute Pits!

Five Points of No Return?

PREFACE: It’s not just mindless flag waving when my words stress the significance of America’s role on the world stage. I merely mention it because the collapse of any Democracy can only destabilize, perhaps even destroy, said world.

`

`
The commonly held belief is that we humans tend to obsess over worst case scenarios that rarely, if ever, actually reach the absolute point of no return. Let’s keep a good thought that such wisdom is fully applicable to the following (worst of the worst) situations. In a sense, these could all, someday soon, easily, wind up as news headlines…

  • Failure to promptly curb climate change to hasten humanity’s extinction
  • Russia’s backfired Ukraine occupation triggers nuclear WW-III escalation
  • Coronavirus whack-a-mole variants flat-out defy containment/eradication
  • Americans’ incivility/hyperpartisanship spurs Civil War-II factionalization
  • Fascism/Theocracy trumps Democracy/Liberty; spawns U.S.A. obliteration

Regarding that last on the list item… I’d like to point out that, in the weeks prior to Donald J. Trump’s January 6th, barked out, storm the U.S. Capitol command to his MAGA maniacs, it’d been the most unlikely person within Trump’s entire retrograde / renegade régime, one Vice President Mike Pence, who, for a fleeting moment, had managed to un-sell his soul. Indeed, when push had come to shove, for perhaps the very first time in that Republican miscreant’s entire deplorable political career, he had opted to do the honorable thing; i.e., certify then President-Elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory; i.e., gallantly come to Lady Liberty’s rescue.

Alas (Part 1): Seeing how the still seething with fury, vengeance seeking, big lie promoter, little snowflake Trump has yet to get his 14th Amendment stipulated comeuppance, and in all likelihood NEVER will, it’s still totally legal for him to seek reelection as early as 2024.

And, win or lose, that insurrectionist bastard could still do his damnedest to suffocate American freedom / burn down Democracy. He still has his entire entourage of low friends in high places (U.S. “legislators” / SCOTUS “justices”) and low friends in low places (his sycophantic Klansmen / Nazis / Proud Boys / media propagandists et al), who ALL have his six.

SIDEBAR: To flesh out the 14th Amendment, in essence, any elected official found guilty of fomenting insurrection against the United States of America shall forever be banned from ever, again, seeking high elective office.

Alas (Part 2): Seeing how Trump has already totally nixed the notion of Pence ever, again, being his running mate, his next VP choice will, little doubt, be someone certifiable / bat crap crazy; the sort of creature who’d slither out from under his/her rock and, no questions asked, hiss out “YESSIR!” and or rattle out, “ON IT!” to whatever that orange, fascistic freak commanded.

Let’s keep a good thought… that there’s still a goodly amount of good people, who can be counted on to know when they must say NO to malefactors (especially of the Trumpian variety).

Before it’s too late… humankind must conquer all five of those above bullet pointed issues; before such woes conquer us all.
