The election season is just about on top of us. As if we haven’t got ENOUGH stuff going on, now we’re going to be inundated with campaign slogans, hateful commercials, boring debates (although those could be good) and we’ll see the faces of every quack running for any office in the nation repeatedly. For someone like ME it’s a fun, free-for-all of political pundits running all over each other trying to come up with the most memorable words to describe what is sure to be a massive Democrat rout in DC. Trump and his mouth have insured that the old Republican party – now the new Trumpist party – will lose their elections in a landslide victory to the Democrats. And progressives will inhabit Washington DC, much to the dismay of rednecks and evangelicals who are just as educated as ole Trumpy himself. Yes, Donald, it’s an elephant. Bwhahaha!
Anyone who knows me understands that I am very interested in politics and follow closely what is going on politically and legislatively in the USA. I also try to keep myself informed about what is happening on the global stage – both visibly and perhaps covertly. To me this stuff is important. It’s the world we LIVE in, how can it not be important? The American Revolution in 1776 wouldn’t have happened if people decided it was too stressful and hid away from it, totally oblivious to the goings on of the British. No, it happened because people watched, educated themselves, made plans, worked on supporting those fighting in the streets, and kept a vigilant eye on everything going on – even though they only got newspapers occasionally. Their internet was men on horses, riding from town to town to make sure the colonists knew what the Brits were up to, sneaky red-coats! haha (I jest)
Anyway, point is that I’m one of the millions watching and waiting in the wings for the time that is coming that we will ALL be called to take on our responsibility to our country, to peace, love and equality and to remove the hateful, corrupt, vile and idiotic people enabling Trump and his band of theives to operate so openly and freely, without any questions, to completely destroy our county, trample our constitution and disregard our traditions and laws. Never have we had a president that was so vain, so completely in love with himself that he’s willing to destroy a whole country and betray all of her inhabitants just because it’s fun for him and his dictator “daddy” figures give him an “..ataboy” – which he cums in his trousers over every damned time.
I believe that it will become very hot and dangerous for all of us in the near future. Watching and just thinking about some of the things that this administration and all those dirty little hands in it right now, are doing around the globe in the name of America on a daily basis SCARES me. We got Pompeo waltzing around Europe trying to change what is considered a “human right” and what is not. Next he will be compling a list, with the help of TeleTracker – which Trump got him in the CDC take over move – and other covert means of who will actually GET these new “human rights”. Now, does anyone else feel weird having a known evangelical, a known racist and a blatant homophobe/anti-trans old white dude deciding what the “new” human “rights” will BE and who gets them…I don’t have a good feeling about whatever he is cooking up with Putin over there. He, Trump and Putin have got SOMETHING going on and I am sure we will be introduced to it before Nov. 3….oh wait…maybe the surprise IS Nov. 3rd…fuck with Putin involved…*facepalm*….we’re in for a very wild ride.
So, we also have Trump somehow producing these bands of 175 or so unmarked, masked storm troopers invading Portland, Oregon and basically kidnapping people off the street, interrgating them and releasing them, no papers, no explanation, no insignia, and don’t tell who they are or who they are working for. #1. WHERE did Trump GET these military-trained dudes?? #2. WHEN and WHO is paying them??? #3 WHO ARE THEY? Our president is NOT supposed to have his own private secret brigade of warriors at his personal direction and disposal. And where are the Republicans??? Yeah, those guys who got this idiot elected and have been bowing to him like he’s an Ayatollah since 2017. WTF Mitch McConnell, have you no shame??? Your party USED to be the party of law and order, now it’s chaos and mayhem by your own boss!
Where is our REAL military leadership while all of this insanity is happening? Why are they not protesting these “military” style attacks on our cities by some unknown band of camoflaged men? Just because it’s a large group of camoflaged people does NOT necessarily mean that they are legally operating and that what they are doing is not illegal – it IS illegal! They are preventing people from their 1st Amendment rights as well as breaking several local, state and federal laws. The mayor and governor have TOLD them to leave, but they obviously ONLY obey Trump, their Maffioso.
In the meantime, while ALL of this is happening AND we are dealing with the worst pandemic of our lifetimes, we have Kushner, Miller (him and her), Barr and a few other choice names behind the scenes doing GOD KNOWS WHAT! I am SURE everyone of them has a particular assignment given by the great orange buffoon, dealing with which part of our society they are supposed to sabotage, blow up or destroy in some fashion with flare and bravado, trying to stay just 1 step ahead of charges being brought on them…and THIS close to the next presidential election – which they KNOW he’s going to lose already, they are going FULL BORE to gang rape the economy of this country for every flat dime they can steal. They’re ALL CROOKS. Trump has made millions – perhaps over a Billion – by defrauding the American people continuously while he’s been in office. He uses his own facilities to go play goft at thus we pay for everything he does while he’s there – like he doesn’t really own the place – and even inflated prices at that! I hope every idiot out there that REALLY thought this guy would be less of a criminal than meek Hillary is happy with this blooming moron they put in our White House! He will most likely BURN it down on his way out as a final “fuck you” to all of us, Americans and immigrants alike! He has truly left a trail of bloody American bodies in his wake…from soldiers he sold to Putin via Taliban fighters in Iran, to his telling police not to “go easy” on people, but to give them what they “deserve” And how many have died not being able to afford medications to live while Trump gives the top 1% of Americans a $2Trillion tax break? Money that should have been paying for much needed help with things from decaying infrastructure to the lack of community services across the country. No, he wanted his buddies to “love” him and praise him for giving them money…what an imbecile.
While all of the above craziness is taking place within our government – federal, state, county and city/town – we have this nasty Covid-19 ravaging our country and half the world too. We’re in the WORST position we could possibly have made for ourselves all due to a severe lack of direction and leadership at the highest levels. It’s becoming an “every man for himself” scenario I am afraid. Doctors and nurses are exhausted – everywhere – and some places are so full that there are patients in ambulances parked outside the hospital waiting for a bed to become available inside.
SSSSCCCCRRRRREEEEEAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! It’s just so ludicrous, the world is on fire! And we’re so stunned that we are still in the “deer in the headlghts” mode….
Lighter Fare…I gotta stop on the serious stuff, it’s over for today – I hope.
Been doing great. My mouth is healing weird, thankfully I am seeing my dentist, who did the work 10 days ago, so he’ll deal with it I am sure. He’s supposed to pop another broken one out, just the root left in there, but it’s an incisor…ouch. I give this guy a gold star though, he’s done good by me as a client. I really like and appreciate this guy tremendously. We need more like him in this world.
Nola and Lu are doing great as well. They’re big couch potatoes in this heat. They want to stay inside under the air conditioner until after 6 at night. Usually it’s cooler by then and we can open the windows and shut down the AC units. Friggin Maine. Don’t like the weather? Wait a minute, it’ll change!
I have been taking some college courses online thru the University of Illinois and Pennsylvania State. The courses are super good! I’m really enjoying them and learning so much. A friend of mine told me I should try taking some online courses, said she could tell that I am hungry to learn…which I agree with, I am – always have been a curious one. The courses I am taking are on social justice and racism in history and culture. I’m looking forward to doing something I believe will bring a lot of satisfaction to my life. And I am going to soak it up and have fun getting there!
Corvid-Caving has given me plenty of time for the courses, of course…haha…sorry, pun….bad…
I just picked up another driving job. Long haul this time. Maine to Florida or California, or anywhere in between. I can’t wait for my first transport!!! I do need to run to Kennebunk and get my licence updated – the town changed the name of my street, so it LOOKS like I have moved, but I have NOT moved ! Anyway, gotta get that updated. Slowly I have been updating various places, gas company, Xfinty, CMP and doctors. Oh! I also just changed my phone number!!! IF you’re someone who had the old one drop me a note to my email and I will send off the new number to you.
You all got to watch this Insane squirrel video! It’s worth the time, believe me! It’s great!
That’s all I got for now, my hands are tired from typing and I’m starting to get distracted because I am tired as F*ck. Hope you all had a great laugh and learned some cool stuff from that squirrel video!!!
Go watch it!!! 🙂
