I had dinner with a friend last night. She is from Mexico. She came to the USA illegally as a young woman in the early 80’s — if there is such a thing as “coming to the USA illegally.” In 1987 she became a US citizen under the Reagan amnesty program.
Yes children, there was a time when the Republicans and Democrats worked together for the country, not their designated parties.
Those were the days.
Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without talking about the Donald. Four years ago I remember being in a room of prominent attorneys in Fort Worth Texas and they talked about how people were secretly going to vote for Trump but wouldn’t make it public because of Trump’s discernment for the rule of law. If you remember back in 2016, Hilary Clinton led in all the polls and seemed like a sure win. Of course, she didn’t and Trump has ruled like the dictators he admires since.
Fast forward to today, and I believe the tables have turned. I believe a lot of Republicans who haven’t spoken out to Trump’s madness will do the right thing and not vote for him this November. I think these Republicans who believe in Truth and the Rule of Law will secretly cast their vote against Trump. If you think about it, they really won’t need him for four more years after he appoints his third right-wing, anti-abortionist judge. They will have gotten control of the Supreme Court which is what they’ve wanted since Roe v. Wade. Even they have to see that no one can trust four more years of Donald Trump/Vladimir Putin. At least, I’m hoping so.
So boys and girls, cheer up and see the positive of it all. Brighter days are ahead. I shit you not.
What is going on? It’s crazy. Back in the late 80’s there was a television report of a racist, American hating Russia who was saying things like “Make Russia Great Again.” No shit! The reports said he was ex KGB who was getting a following by bashing the then current leader of Russia, Boris Yeltsin. Putin blamed everything wrong with Russia on Yeltsin and the USA and promised if he were elected he would destroy the USA.
It took 30 years, but he is succeeding. Remember this when you vote for Putin– I mean Trump this fall.
The fact is: MAGA = MRGA (Make Russia Great Again).
So I’ve been avoiding news again this week, it’s disturbing. Still, I have a few things to say.
First, I can’t believe people “booed” Trump as he paid respect to the recently departed Justice Ginsburg. It was stupid. I know Trump brings it on himself by saying so many terrible things about those of us trying to make the world a better place, still, how can we demand more of them when we play right into their hand. Trump knew he would be booed and that’s why he showed up. We played right into his hands again.
And on the recent death of the only true liberal on the supreme court, stop crying. They win again, get over it. Yes, with 9 months to go in 2016 when there was an opening on the court the Republican Senate wouldn’t vote on Obama’s appointee until after the election, and now with only 50 days before election these same Republicans are tripping over their dicks to elect another conservative anti-abortionist to the court and will. And to the Democrats crying about it, shut the f&*k up. YOU SUCK. If the shoe was on the other foot you would do the same.
So people, as you can see, I really don’t have any respect for either side. They both are working for the corporation, not the people. It’s time for a new party. A real Peoples party. A party that doesn’t bend over backwards for corporate money. A party that respects the facts that their is a global-warming problem. A party that doesn’t cut taxes for the wealthy while bridges are falling and children are starving. A compassionate party. It’s time.
That’s all. Enjoy your weekend. Vote for Biden so we can have four years to figure this out without the Russian agenda Donald Trump so proudly supports. In case you haven’t been paying attention, here are the things Trump has done that favored Putin’s Russia over the interest of the USA:
Putin’s Goal: Weaken and divide the transatlantic alliance.
Putin’s Payout:Trump undermines US relationships with European allies and calls the US’s commitment to NATO into question.
Putin’s Goal: Degrade the European Union and foster pro-Russian political movements.
Putin’s Payout:Trump attacks the EU and actively supports anti-EU, Kremlin-backed parties.
Putin’s Goal: Disrupt American leadership and dominance of the global economic order.
Putin’s Payout: Trump is eagerly pushing for an all-out trade war with Europe
Putin’s Goal: Build global resentment and distrust towards the US and stoke anti-American sentiment.
Putin’s Payout: America’s closest allies are explicitly suspicious and distrusting of the US because of Trump’s rhetoric and actions.
Putin’s Goal: Relieve economic and domestic political pressure from US sanctions on Russia.
Putin’s Payout: Trump tries to roll back, impede, and blunt the impact of sanctions at every step.
Putin’s Goal: Legitimize his regime in the eyes of the world.
Putin’s Payout: Trump repeatedly praises and defends Putin, lending the credibility of the US presidency to Putin’s standing.
Putin’s Goal: Revive Russia’s status as a great power and gain international recognition for its illegal seizure of Crimea.
Putin’s Payout:Trump publicly says that Crimea is part of Russia and calls for Russia to be welcomed back into the international community with no concessions.
Putin’s Goal: Continue to sow discord in Western democracies and avoid repercussions for interfering in American and European elections.
Putin’s Payout: Trump dismisses Russian interference and has done nothing to prevent future interference, putting him at odds with his own intelligence community.
So you know by now that one of the three liberal judges on the supreme court has died. Ruth Ginsburg was trying to hold onto life through the election but didn’t. Now, the leader of the Senate, Republican Mitch McConnell says we need to replace her quickly. Four years ago when Obama was still president and had 9 months left in office and a supreme court vacancy came, Mitch McConnell said, “The seat should not be filled until the people have voted for the president.” Now, with only five weeks before an election, he wants to fill the position as soon as possible. It is hypocrisy at its worst.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve checked-out until election. I have one vote and will vote for Biden and Harris. This is all I can do. Oh, and send “love” and “truth” to our leaders with hope they will do what is fair.
Now I know how Nikola Tesla must have felt after seeing greed and hypocrisy destroy his vision of free electricity for all.
Far be it for me to say something bad about Donald Trump, I mean, as you know I’ve been avoiding bad news by watching bubble sports. Still, I fear that my voice is needed. My factual voice in a very non-factual time.
Right now things are bad. The Republicans I used to call Neo-Cons are now considered liberals. This is how far right we have swung. Last night, Mitch McConnell swore in another 6 Right Wing judges. They’ve almost done it. They’ve almost destroyed the world as we know it to give us their conservative vision of a country without social programs for the poor, and crazy-low tax rates for the rich. For those of us in the know we know that the rich conservatives believe they are God’s chosen people. They believe God has blessed them with their richness. The slaves who worked their great grandparents plantations, or the wage earners who worked in their factories, are losers. In other words: rich is heaven’s gift, poverty is heaven’s judgement on those not worthy. Social Programs to the rich are: get on your knees and pray to me for a dime, and I’ll consider it. That’s why they really hate social security and lunch programs for the poor. They don’t like the idea of me and you having something we didn’t get from busting our backs making them a profit.
This thought process started with Eugenics and is now the new Donald Trump party in the USA which I call the Trump-Eugenics Party.
In case you’ve forgotten, Eugenics advocated selective breeding. That’s right, the more Aryan blood, the mo’ better. Problem is, before the 19th century there was no such thing as an Aryan race; instead, there were groups of warring tribes taking things from each other. The tribe with the best fighters and biggest ships, took things. This had nothing to do with smarts and everything to do with resources, aggression, and stupidity. Stupidity because they couldn’t see that there was plenty to go around if you didn’t have the gluttonous types wanting way more than they needed. Yes, a socialistic government.
This is clear to see to most people and this is why Mitch McConnell is swearing in conservative judges to back them up when the socialist revolution begins and those of us who don’t get in line with their greed and hate policies are arrested and sentenced to where all good liberals are headed: prison — if not there already. They know it is happening. This is why Donald Trump has to remain president no-matter what. A fair election will turn the USA into a Democratic Socialist State. One where gluttonous behavior is not rewarded, but considered a sin. A good old-fashion biblical sin.
Get ready boys and girls, hard times are coming, for a short while, but then better days are here and they know it. Stay strong.
So I lose another friend over this Trump nightmare. She’s buying into the conspiracy shit that Trump is some kind of underground savior working behind the scenes to stop child molesters in the Deep State running America. Of course, when you look into this, you see that the Deep State and Child Molesters are in reality, Truth. The Republicans have always considered Truth as the Liberal Press because they don’t like the facts of the news. Take for example the Exon Valdez accident that polluted the Prince William Sound in Alaska. The news reported the facts that the oil was killing the fish and destroying the shores and would cost billions to correct which Exon needed to pay. The Republicans called this reporting “liberal.” The only thing the Republicans wanted reported was that it was an “accident” and that “Exon was doing a good job cleaning it up.” That’s the choice whenever you hear the Republicans talking about the “liberal press.” To the Republicans, Facts and Truth are liberal. Of course, the opposite of this is a propaganda press that doesn’t tell us the truth, but slants it in favor of the profiteers, which, is happening today.
That’s not what I want to talk about today. This is:
Shortly after Trump became president one of my drinking, football watching, friends started using the N word noticeably. I told him to stop using it around me, and when he wouldn’t, I told him I would no longer be hanging out with him.
These white people really believe blacks are living off of the brains of white people. They believe the old white lie that the Christians whites made America great by taking it from the Native People who were barbaric. The truth is, the stinky Europeans who came to America were the barbarians. Even in the White History books they tell how the original settlers only made it with the help of Native Americans. And that’s the Republican DNA: be nice when it benefits you, be a dick when it doesn’t. The party of hate and profits.
I haven’t posted in a few days. And why for not? Or is that, what for you? Seems my mind has gone Donald Trump; that place where reality doesn’t matter, for truth is what I say it is, not what it is. In other words, I’ve had enough. I’m checking out. This is my last post ever. Nothing I say matters. Nothing I do matters. There is no desire in this country for truth, love, peace. The things I admire the most in the world. The people in control suck, there’s no doubt, but would it be better if say another shade of people were in charge? No, because the majority of people suck. The majority of the people only care about themselves. Right now, we’re down on the white men who own everything and want to continue to do so. Here’s the shit: if the majority was brown or black it wouldn’t be no different for they would slant things in their favor too, it’s the truth. I’ve been in communities of color and they believe their shit doesn’t stink just like the gray-headed man with his polo shirt and his over pasteurized wife standing in from of their million-dollar home with guns. My neighbor is Puerto Rican and loves him some Trump. He can’t afford healthcare for his Stay-at-Home wife and blames it on Obama Care. Nothing I tell him can change this. As a wedding videographer I’ve done Jewish, Muslim, Mexican, and Hindu weddings. In these groups there are nice people, but if you pay close attention, there is still the same breakdown of the selfish, greedy, my-way-or-the-highway types in those people as there are in the mean-old white guys running the world today.
My message to everyone: stop attacking other tribes, look at your own. Do you really think it will be any better when the brown man/woman is in control of everything? No, the haves will protect their wealth and those of us with hearts and souls to care will die inside every morning trying to make a difference, when there is no difference. Donald Trump is the ruler we deserve. I give up. He wins. I’m not voting. If he wants it that bad he can have it.
And to you who think you’re making a difference, suck my Peter Built, I’ve gone rogue. I’m getting my own and becoming an angry white man because I know you’ll do the same when you win the birth lottery.
