ON this day in 1965 cigarette commercials were banned in the UK. The word was out that cigarettes killed for those who believed in the SCIENCE of medicine. It would take the USA another 5 years of “Four Out Of Five Doctors Recommend Cigarette Smoking” commercials before we would ban such commercials.
If this sounds familiar it should, we are doing the same today with Climate Change. While the SCIENCE is out that carbon emissions are killing the planet, we do nothing but pretend we’re safe by creating crazy tax cuts for the rich as a cure…. WTF! The point of no return is close and if we continue to allow e-i-e-i-o idiots with too much money to govern, we’re f**ked! And just as the Covid19 virus that we knew was coming this way since December 2019 and did nothing about until it was too late, our approach to climate change is the same. It will hit one day soon with floods and fires and the Republican Voters who continue to support climate-change deniers such as Donald Chump, Mitch Mc Cow Bell, and Betsy Screwball, will finally have their hell on earth and their true god will be revealed: the Dark Knight of Fire. Now, I’m no Christian but seems to me the god of fire is the naughty one? Hmmmmm.
Funny, it was also on this day in 1954 that SCIENCE proved that smog pollution was from sunlight hitting lead-contaminated gasoline. Of course, it would take another 20 years before the USA to listen to SCIENCE and get the lead out of our weekend walks.
Today’s SCIENCE tells us to wear a mask to fight the Trump Flu. Today’s SCIENCE tells us Climate Change is real and we only have a few years left to correct it or we are all doomed. Today’s SCIENCE tells us Donald Trump is a Narcissistic Lunatic Unfit For Office!
What part of SCIENCE don’t you understand!!! Oh, that’s right, the Tax-Cut-For-The-Rich-solves-everything part.
Sorry for the discouraging words. We need to do something before it is too late and you and I and the horse Donald Trump rode in on know it.
If my eyes don’t deceive me there is something wrong going on in the U.S. today. Late last night, while still in his Big Boy Pajamas, Donald Trump tweeted: “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA,” he wrote. “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”
That’s right boys and girls, Donald Trump is now suggesting we delay the election. WTF. We didn’t delay the vote during the 1918 Spanish Flu! We didn’t delay the vote during the WWI or WW II wars when our brave citizens were fighting for our rights to vote! But now, to save Donald Trump from the “embarrassment” of losing by the greatest landslide ever, Donald Trumps wants to postpone the election until… well, I don’t know, he dies!
What a dick and if you are an American who would stand for this you are a dick too.
Funny that this should have happened on a July 30th, the same day in 1975 that Jimmy Hoffa was last seen alive. The mob boss who he was suppose to have lunch with that day said, “He must have taken a vacation.”
Okay, I tried, I really did. I tried to cover my ass to keep from getting arrested when the Trump Police start rounding up liberals here in Dallas, but can’t. This is why I’m ripping up my Liberal Republican membership card and joining the human race. Things have gotten so bad with President Jerky Jerk, that even the historical bad guys and gals are speaking out against him. Take for instance the founder of Tax-Cut-For-The-Rich-To-Starve-The-Poor Ronald Reagan. The guy who gave us today’s “Trickle Down Government” mess, his Foundation wants the Trump Republicans (Jerky Jerks) to stop raising money off of Reagan’s legacy. Ouch, that’s got to hurt, the guy who gave us today’s high rate 1%-ers who are benefiting from Trump’s tax cuts and stock market welfare, can’t even stomach their own guy.
Speaking of people who can’t “stomach” Trump, Neil Young, the old-time acid rocker has come out and asked Trump to stop playing his song “Rockin In The Free World” at his Neo Nazi rallies. Okay, that’s great, but for those of you too young to remember, not only doesn’t a Southern man need Neil Young around (from a Lynyrd Skynyrd song), the guy actually was so drugged up in the 80’s he came out in support of Ronald Reagan’s “Welfare Cuts.” That’s right, when the former hippie saw the tax advantages of being a 1%, he came out in support of Reagan. What’s funny about this is that the last time I heard Neil Young interviewed he said the only reason he was still playing live music at the age of 90 is because the people who work for him on tour have families and need the money. That’s right Mr. Cinnamon Man, they don’t have a safety net and will be working until they die no thanks to you and other Republicans. So, for those of you paying attention, that puts Young on my Jimmy Fallon list of people I’ll never forgive for having been dicks.
Trump is serious about shutting up liberals like me with his police state and it looks like his death-cult followers are okay with it, so, if I know what is good for me I’ll do as he says. It will be way easier if I just stand down and let them do as they please because I’m just a poor peasants who really needs to shut the f**k up and stop rocking the boat.
There are other reason too for my change of heart: for one, I now see I was wrong about President George W Bush. I was one of those liberals who called Bush an idiot and didn’t give him a chance much like the Trump supporters are now doing with Joe Biden. I judged George Bush without giving him any credit for the positive things he did like stand up to the Anti-Vaxxers by getting a vaccination on public TV, and then I laughed at him for speaking to the NAACP convention without giving him any credit for doing so.
So if I was wrong about George W Bush, I must be wrong about Donald Trump and just can’t see it yet. So, I’ll not listen to that inner voice that tells me the environment needs saving and every person in America deserves healthcare, and instead start seeing that the important thing is more tax cuts for the rich and deficit spending for the military. It’s that simple. Those liberal voices in my head are wrong, stupid, bad.
So, when they start arresting liberals here in Dallas for protesting against police brutality, or worse, trying to vote by mail, I’ll have this post to save my ass because: I NOW SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP AND EVERYTHING HE STANDS FOR. BEING LIBERAL MADE ME BLIND. DONALD TRUMP IS BRILLIANT, SMART, JUST LOOK AT HIS RECENT COGNITIVE TEST IN THE NEW YORKer:
So here we are in Nazis America. Trump is sending in Federal Agents to cities to stop the “liberal democrats” from protesting. Don’t be fooled, he’s doing it now to have them in place come election time when he appoints himself king. Trump is using the Putin play book and gaining control of the US just like Putin did in Russia. Trump already has the Republican party, and over the last three years has stacked the federal courts with his judges and the justice department with his criminals. If you know what is good for you you would shut the f**k up and become a Republican! The writing is on the wall:
So, that is why I am now denouncing my liberal ways and joining the Putin Republican Party.
God bless America, land that I love Stand beside her and guide her Through the night with the light from above From the mountains to the prairies To the oceans white with foam God bless America, my home sweet home God bless America, land that I love Stand beside her and guide her Through the night with the light from above From the mountains to the prairies To the oceans white with foam God bless America, my home sweet home From the mountains to the prairies To the oceans white with foam God bless America, my home sweet home God bless America, my home sweet home
The U.S. has a long history of liberal activism dating back to our founders who were liberals in their time by being deist and establishing a foundation in which liberalism at least had a chance to shape the country as it has, and so we won’t let our country become a Police State without a fight. The liberties we’ve earned on the backs of the framers of our constitution are threatened today like at no other time, but I’m certain goodness will prevail. Unfortunately, not without Donald Trump doing something very disturbing like trying to turn our military on us, which in ways, he already has in Portland. The Republican party that talks a big talk about States Rights when it comes to taking away a woman’s right to her body, are now sending in Federal Troops to police Portland when the state and city governments have asked them not to. This is Police-State 101 — look it up in the Anarchist Cookbook – ha. Seriously, Trump is using this change in policing to scare the suburban people who just want their Chili’s restaurants and ESPN sports and not have to bother with a new form of government where people police themselves like we did before the 1920’s. That’s right, that’s when the police departments we know today began. Before then only companies had security guards; however, after labor strikes proved to be too much for the company police to handle, large corporations like Ford and Union Carbide financially backed politicians who would use our tax money to fund a police state to keep us in line. I’ve over-simplified it somewhat, but not much. What is happening in Portland today is Trump’s police state, his SS force which consist mostly of Border Police, his most loyal force that has been filled with his Build-A-Wall psychos.
I’m not sure how this Portland situation will play out, but I am certain their is a glitch in the matrix which is about to expose Donald Trump as the New Nero, and who was Nero?…
Among Rome’s degenerate emperors, Nero was the worst. He used his unlimited powers to feed his ego madness — sound familiar? He would run the streets at night without restraint for his pleasure by killing and f**king whoever he wanted. He also fancied himself a great actor and scandalized the Roman nobility by appearing on stage and acting (poorly). Of course the people clapped and pretended to like his performances, but inside they knew their country was in deep shit. Nero wrote second rate poetry and forced audiences to hear him recite it. As the historian Suetonius writes: “No one was permitted to leave the theater during his performances. We read of women in the audience giving birth…and of men who were so bored they pretended they had died in order to be carried away for burial.”
Most of Nero’s acts were those of insane egotism. He had one wife executed so he could marry someone else and kicked another wife to death while she was pregnant because she complained when he came home late from the chariot races. But of all his mad deeds, none is more Trumpian than what Nero did on this day back in AD 64: he set Rome on fire. The great conflagration lasted six days and seven nights, destroying huge parts of Rome and killing hundreds. Instead of sending out a rescue effort with water buckets, Nero watched from the Tower of Maecenas, enchanted by what he called “the beauty of the flames.” He then put on his actor’s costume and sang his own composition of The Sack of Ilium with his violin.
Now, here’s the glitch in the matrix, Nero lasted four more years until he was overthrown and driven to suicide to the relief and joy of his people. So, as you can see, a vote for four more years of Trump, is a vote for Nero.
As many of you know, I’m a Buddhist. In the 13th century, Nichiren Daishonin wrote: “When great evil occurs, great good follows.” Boy are his words important today. The U.S. is a mess and all our current leaders are concerned with is putting us back to work so the money makers can make money. Combine this with the alternative reality they are teaching that Climate Change isn’t real, the Covid 19 “cold” is a liberal plot, and tax cut for the rich help the poor. It’s all bullshit and everyone who isn’t benefitting from it know this. Fortunately our numbers are growing.
If we continue letting the Alternate Reality monsters rule the country, we will be a fascist country, if we’re not already. I don’t think so because of all the protesters and scientist who are still free to speak the truth. If, however, Trump gets four more years the US is done with. Trump will be so embolden that he will have his enemies arrested and do to the country as he has done to the Banana Republican Party. We will all keep our mouth shut and the lies that Climate Change isn’t happening, or at best, is temporary; the Covid 19 deaths that have overwhelmed our hospitals are because sick people are faking; and the rich need to have everything and you and I just need to shut the f**k up.
On a brighter note, my Covid 19 test came back negative, and only three days after I took it.
So while President Do-Nothing Trump and Governor Bully DeSantis are telling us everything is okay and that we need to go back to work because the symptoms we are feeling are all in our head, and the death total now over 138000 people is a liberal lie, we are left out here to fend for ourselves.
I went and got a covid19 test yesterday. It was a four hour wait, but I’m not complaining. I got one! Now lets see when I get my results. Meanwhile, I’m going to an office today to work because to not do so would be turning down work, and you can’t do that and draw unemployment pay; so instead of committing fraud by turning down a job and saying I didn’t, I’m going to work with what I hope are only allergies — fortunately for those around me I’m not a Republican Dick and will be wearing a mask.
Another thing I’ve been working on this morning is to see if any of my hand sanitizers I bought are causing this blurry vision I’m having which I think might be allergies from the weed I’m growing in the backyard instead of the dreaded gift that keeps giving: Covid 19? Apparently, some of the companies that rushed to make a buck by making hand sanitizer quickly did so using an ingredient that causes blindness. Just for the record here are the hand sanitizers I’m using which are not on the list:
So if the hand sanitizer companies screwed up on their rush to make a buck, can’t wait to see the mess the vaccinations Trump will have them push out create. Can you? — Dr TV Boogie
First, need I remind you that around this time in 2004, then President George Bush was losing in the polls to his opponent John Kerry by 12 points; then, as now with Biden and Trump, it looked like the Republican incompetent — oppsss, I meant: incumbent — would lose by a landslide. Then, as now, it was a deceptive ploy to keep you comfortably numb because you are a liberal who would rather sit under a tree reading Robert Browning or attending a F**k It retreat in Italy than voting for a U.S. president. By making you believe that your vote isn’t needed they keep you away from the long voting lines that surprisingly seem to favor Democratic leaning cities – hmmmm. Besides bullshit polls, the other thing they do is write bullshit news articles to discourage you like this recent article in Politico which is titled:
The left gets rolled on legalizing pot — and legal protections for cops
Articles like this are meant to remind you that we’re not getting a real liberal, but another Republican Moderate who has found a home in the Democratic party.
So the next time you read an article saying Biden isn’t “liberal” enough or really fighting for our cause, remember that’s how they keep you home. Don’t fall for it, vote for Joe Biden because we can get our liberal policies during his long naps, and they know it!
Hooray for Sleepy Joe Biden!
Why I Am A Liberal
“Why?” Because all I haply can and do, All that I am now, all I hope to be,– Whence comes it save from fortune setting free Body and soul the purpose to pursue, God traced for both? If fetters, not a few, Of prejudice, convention, fall from me, These shall I bid men–each in his degree Also God-guided–bear, and gayly, too?
But little do or can the best of us: That little is achieved through Liberty. Who, then, dares hold, emancipated thus, His fellow shall continue bound? Not I, Who live, love, labour freely, nor discuss A brother‘s right to freedom. That is “Why.” Robert Browning
Three indentured servants indebted to Virginia planter Hugh Gwyn—two of them European descent (white), one African (black)—ran away to Maryland in 1640. All were subsequently captured and sentenced to 30 lashes each. But the equality of punishment ended there. The servitude of the two white men was extended to four years by the court, while the sentence of the other read: “And that the third being negro named John Punch shall serve his said master or his assigns for the time of his natural life here or elsewhere.” Thus, by order of the court of July 9, 1640, John Punch became the first documented slave in the original American Colonies. ______________________________________________________________________________
Within twenty yards of of my gun stands a solitary locust tree, the sole representative of a once noble grove which graced the graceful lawn. Charred from the burning of the mansion and torn by relentless cannon balls, truly “grand, gloomy, and peculiar,” its glory has not all departed. Amidst a tuft of foliage which graces the topmost bough, there daily sits a mockingbird which, with the rising of the sun, carols forth its superb madrigal until the first gun fires. What a subject for contemplation, this “gleam of heaven,” in the midst of the “pomp, pride, and circumstance” of glorious war! How painfully am I reminded by the winged messenger of peace of my once happy home in the South!
— Eugene Henry Levy (July 9th, 1864)
Eugene Henry Levy of New Orleans was born in Grand Gulf, Mississippi, in 1840. His ancestors were English Sephardim, and one was a Captain Lazarus, who fought in the American Revolution. Eugene served in Company C, 1st Louisiana Battalion for the Confederacy Army during the Civil War. He was a Jew who fought for the South.
