|What a pig- I mean, guy.|
Ah yes, April 30th, what a day in history. George Washington was sworn in as our first president on this day, Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the U.S. by purchasing 827,000 acres from the French known as the Louisiana Purchase on this day, and that leader who wrote the book our current president said had a “strong effect on him in college,” committed suicide on this day.
That was then, what about now?
Situation normal: all f*&ked up! (That’s “faked up” btw).
Seems the U.S. under Trump is sinking fast. Example One: Trump has appointed Eight fossil fuel executives to his White House task force on how to reopen the U.S. economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Can you say “Fox in the hen house boys and girls?” WTF! This is almost as bad as when President Johnson appointed John Foster Dulles to investigate the assassination of John F Kennedy. Not only was Dulles a hardcore Protestant who thought Catholics were evil, Dulles had been fired by Kennedy when he was the head of the CIA. Johnson put Dulles on the committee to ensure that they would find that there was only the one gunman, which no one, I mean NO ONE believes today. What a mess.
|Trickle Down worked for me!|
Example Two: The rich want us to go back to work and die to protect their wealth. I told you about Trump’s Executive Order to force meat workers to go back to work regardless of the work conditions; well, it seems Trump isn’t the only 1%er to be freaking right now. Elon Musk has joined the billionaire-nutty tweet club and is demanding we all go back to work. “What the fuck,” he proclaimed after going on about shelter-in-place forcibly imprisoning people in their homes and destroying the American dream….” That’s right the American dream of tax cuts for the rich while you and me grabble for tit-bits on the ground. Yes, another wealthy arrogant ass-whole benefiting from Reagan’s “trickle-down” economics which has destroyed the middle class.
Enough is enough people: stand up, do something, stop taking their shit.
I’m just saying.
Walpurgisnacht begins at sunrise on this date and ends at sunrise on the first of May (May Day). Birch boughs are placed on all doors and windows to protect the home from evil spirits and sorcery. Traditional bonfires and torches of rosemary and juniper are lit, and according to legend, Witches can be seen riding across the sky on broomsticks on this dark and magical night.
