“Don’t change horses in midstream!” is a political maxim / mantra that doth
not even begin to fully characterize the 2024 strategy of the (Un)American
Republican Party / Freak Show; hijacked by insurrectionist Donald J. Trump.
Stated far more frankly it’d read: “Don’t change horse’s asses in midstream.”

What the Survey Sez

`

Preface: Should any yesteryear Republicans ever read this post, know that, primarily, my beef is with today’s Trumpers, who have crashed your political party and dumped their own ideological dung into your punch bowl.

`

Yesterday, I received a landline phone call from a Trumper conducting a survey. Instantly, it became obvious that he was seeking validation of his party’s know-no-bounds wretched ways; as well as hitting us up for contributions that’d ensure their cancerous message to the masses will continue to grow and metastasize. The particulars…

First off, came his ominous warning that our conversation was being recorded; which served as my cue to vent my disgust re all things Trumpian.

Next, came his queries, all deviously crafted to manipulate public opinion; to get our responses to conform to their unacceptable status quo. Any efforts to stray off their beaten path instantly triggered his repeated retort (words to the effect) “I’m sorry, I did not hear your response.” What he actually meant was, “I’m not sorry and don’t want to hear opinionated peeps, such as you.” All of which prompted my own query, “Are you a robot?”

Despite Da Man’s claim that (my characterization) he could fog up a dentist’s mirror held beneath his nostrils, he still flat-out refused to clear his foggy noggin long enough to interact with me. Any of my attempts to heighten his awareness re real world people problems had fallen on deaf ears.

With my frustration mounting, I actually hung up on him (three times); only to discover he was even impervious to my attempts to shoo him away. Yep, he was so self-absorbed that he just kept droning and deadpanning on and on; endlessly pouring out his Trump spiked Kool-Aid™, too!

Cutting to the chase, my having been caught off guard, I probably could’ve presented / defended the average Jane and Joe perspective a tad better. However, I will be better prepared if, someday, he or some other Trumper attempts to ever, again, party with… correction… party against this commoner. My response to such a survey…

I’m a true blue American, who flat out refuses to pony up one red cent to prop up your horse’s ass hero; namely, the narcissistic, fascistic, chronic liar, insufferable sore loser Trump. I’d NEVER be a party to your freak show party; inclusive of your suck up, sicko, MAGA mad hatters; ‘roid raging, militant, genocidal, bigoted storm trooper cops; gun nuts who morph houses of worship / schoolhouses into blood splattered, corpse strewn battlefields; your vigilantes, Klansmen, Nazis; misogynists, homophobes and sanctimonious bible thumpers; your brain dead, science and pandemic deniers, QAnon whack-a-doodles AND (saving the worst for last) your burn down America insurrectionists. Your warped Republican Party must absolutely, permanently sever all ties with all of the above deplorables, especially Donald J. Trump and his entire family. Until you comply, I want my phone number to top off your NEVER CALL LIST!

Of, By and For Everyone?

 

Unless financial wounds are self-inflicted, it’s virtually impossible for multimillionaires / multi-billionaires to ever be harmed. Such individuals could not do perceptable damage to their investments, even were they to pay their fair share of income taxes (which, more often than not, they don’t). They could not, possibly, go broke if, somehow, they could each live out 2 to 10 human lifetimes. Granted, I’m just estimating that “10”; it could be much more than that.

I’m not saying that it’s wrong to achieve success beyond one’s wildest dreams. However, what IS wrong becomes glaringly evident once the well-heeled individuals seek / attain high elective office. And that’s akin to our worst nightmares-come-true.

Typically, public service is not their motivating factor. Private gain, to the exclusion of the less fortunate, is their driving force. And that means, instead of working towards the betterment of society, as a whole, they’re spending every waking moment perverting the very Constitution, which their Oath of Office demands that they support and defend.

We’re talking about the very document with the preamble reminder of just who the hell We are and what, as a Nation, We stand for. It’s right there in the opening three words! How could anybody not notice, “We the People”? Let’s review that preamble in its entirety…

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Please note how nowhere within that passage is there even one whiff of a malodorous disclaimer; one which would establish an America that’s government Of the wealthy, By the wealthy and For the wealthy.

Even so, we ARE talking about wealth that’s been amassed so corruptly that “our” self-serving representatives are doing their damnedest to cover their asses, namely, by rigging our Congress and loading our Courts; hell, even subverting our Elections to THEIR advantage; and all with Donald J. Trump’s approval.

Donny’s hijacked and radicalized Republican Party, backed by HIS private army of sycophantic, psychopathic, armed to the teeth, white nationalists, domestic terrorists and voter vigilantes, have all but hammered in the final nail into Lady Liberty’s coffin; all but established a virtually impossible to dismantle, barren of ethics, stripped of oversight, mash-up of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches.

What other corroborating evidence does anyone need to support such a contention, other than pointing out how president (in title only) Trump (a.k.a. mister quid pro quo) has ordered HIS owned (in title only) senate majority leader Mitch McConnell to railroad onto the Supreme Court bench HIS handpicked, handmaid nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

How can any fair-minded person reconcile a 67% conservative Supreme Court with a nation that’s demographically 35% conservative? Sure as shit, that stinks like government Of the wealthy, By the wealthy and For the wealthy.

99 Word Blog (#027) Un-Presidential Limericks

 

Madman Trump’s rants and raves will not stop,

He’s full of flip-flop, Flip-Flop, more FLIP-FLOP,

Offensive flips he doth say,

Oft are flops the same day,

His point of view’s based upon the backdrop.

 

Well-heeled Trump ain’t worth one damned plug nickel,

Far right views are wrong and he is fickle,

Folks who aid and abet,

Will feel buyer’s regret,

If Trump wins, we’ll lose, be in a pickle.

 

Trump preaches views unorthodox,

From his pulpit he socks, shocks his flocks,

Is he too hard? Too soft?

Too hot? Too cold oft?

His freaky fans must feel like Goldilocks.
