You couldn’t make this TV show up

Imagine being a studio executive and having to listen to this pitch for a television show;

We have a businessman who is known for his acumen (ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PRESS RELEASES) but in reality has failed at most endeavors but is kept afloat by family money, bankruptcies, stiffing suppliers and “loaning” his name on big building projects.

He has been a reality television star and decides to run for President in spite of being one of the most un-christian people on earth, has been married three times , cheated on all three wives. Has insulted the handicapped, Mexicans, the intelligence community, has threatened to jail the person running against him, has said he could shoot someone in plain view and get elected, insults war heroes, gold star families and treats women like sexual toys.

At this time you would imagine the studio executive wondering if this pitch man has lost his mind, but wait, there’s more.

The pitch continues; The candidate nor his family has served in the military but he said in public that he knew more than the generals and only he could defeat ISIS and do it within 100 days of him taking office.

His entire team including his sons, son in-law and cabinet will conspire with America’s hated enemy ( Russia)  to ensure he wins the election. Speaking of his team it will consist of a ultra right wing  supremacist, a Southern cracker from Alabama who for decades has tried to suppress minorities rights and voting rights. A black surgeon who couldn’t find his ass using two hands. An education secretary wanna be who only got there by donating tens of millions to the  campaign. An oil man for Secretary of State, a former Wall Streeter for Treasury, and get this: a lifetime hater of the EPA for, you guessed it, running the EPA.

The studio exec must be rolling his eyes by now right? but wait there’s more.

The communications office will be staffed with miscreants, sycophants, liars, two faced hyenas,yes men and women. The first communications mouthpiece will be a sawed off runt who looks like he was bullied in school and has a chip on his shoulder. The lady mouthpiece looks like she could fleece the skin off a snake and tell the snake it was doing it a favor. The next lady is pretty homely, she couldn’t get laid at a Navy shore leave. She even wore a pearl necklace for appeal but you know the joke about putting lipstick on a pig.

The best communications staffer for last. The bullied one resigned and another sawed off Joe Pesci wannabe took over. This guy in his first week was more profane than the entire Sopranos clan and picked a fight with the chief of staff and the aforementioned supremacist. This guy talked more about oral sex than Peter North.

A comedy of errors occur when the candidate says one thing, his minions back him up and then the next day he makes a 180 turn and rolls his people under the bus. Its helter skelter with everyone taking cover.

And get this, every morning he sits on the toilet and tweets his thoughts to his followers.

At this time the studio exec would say that it is too far fetched, people could not buy that premise, too far from reality.

But wait, there will be more, later.

Well the later has arrived just a few days after posting this Scaramucci has been fired by the Mad Twitterer just ten days after staring the job. You really cant make this up, really.

Summary of Trump’s 100 day plan* at day 175

*Taken right off his website when he was running for his party’s nomination, courtesy of the Daily Surge.

So here is the comprehensive and ambitious plan before the surprise win and the Russian connection became apparent. Almost 180 days in.

A, GENERAL CONCEPTS

  1. Cancel all unconstitutional Obama executive orders./Program under way, working
  2.  SCOTUS: Replace Scalia with a judge who will uphold the constitution. With right wing/conservative/faux Christian values. Done, working.
  3. Establish term limits for Congress. Not discussed, not working, no chance.
  4. Hiring freeze for non-military government jobs. Not applied.
  5. Eliminate two existing regulations for each new regulation./what new regulations? eliminating left and right, it’s like a free for all.
  6. Five year ban on post -Congress lobbying.  Yes, done.
  7. Limits on foreign governmental lobbying. Ummm, as long as it’s not Russians.
  8. Fix Washington corruption. Surely you fucking jest. okay so four out of 8 aint bad.

B. ECONOMY

  1. Renegotiate or withdraw from NAFTA/Lots of bluster, no action.
  2. Withdraw from Trans Pacific Partnership/ No sale so fah Charlee
  3. Identify China as currency manipulator/ Not done, had chance, gutless
  4. End unfair trade abuses/not so far.
  5. Lift restrictions on energy reserves/HUH?
  6. Allow Keystone pipeline and similar projects/yes
  7. Cancel payment to UN climate change : use money to fix our own environment and infrastructure/yes on the first part, no on the second.

1.5 out of seven.

C.TAX

  1. Only three brackets, down from seven/not yet
  2. Middle class tax relief :average 35% tax cut/not yet, a tease at this point
  3. Reduce business tax rate from 35% to 15%, bring money back to U.S. create more jobs/not yet, really?
  4. Tariffs to stop U.S. firms from relocating abroad.

0 for four

 

D.SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION

  1. Rebuild military, end sequester/headed that way
  2. Veterans health reforms/aint easy, working on it
  3. Fix the VA/ see #2
  4. Cancel federal funding of sanctuary cities/ did that, most cities told him to fuck off
  5. Deport 2 million illegal criminals; cancel visas from countries who wont take em back/work in progress
  6. Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot occur/unless the Trump Organization does business there
  7. End illegal immigration/did we ever have any other plan?
  8. Build the wall/sure, just waiting for Mexico to make the down payment
  9. Two year mandatory prison sentence for breaking immigration law/ sort of defeats the crackdown on deporting illegal criminals
  10. Five year mandatory sentence for convicted felons who re-enter the US/working on it
  11. Penalties for visa infractions/a work in progress
  12. Require immigrants to support our values/ ambitious, impressive, impossible to apply/monitor/implement

Will give him four out of twelve

  1. Establish community crime prevention program/isn’t that called Crime Watch?

Help eliminate criminal gangs/Is this new?

0 for 2

F. Healthcare

The first version did not pass, the second version doesn’t look like it will either. It is an obscene money grab/tax break for the rich and screw the poor.

  1. Repeal and replace Obamacare/harder to kill the Freddy Krueger
  2. Health savings accounts/nice try, not happening
  3. Purchase insurance across state lines/see #2
  4. States to manage Medicaid funds/they have done so well so far, see Florida
  5. Speed up approval of life saving drugs/ as long as they don’t cost $1700 a pill     

G.Education

  1. 1.Allowances for parents to choose schools/this is the charter school come on and a gimme
  2. End common core/doing it
  3. Expand vocational and technical education/coming soon to a theatre near you.

In closing 2 out of three here. Now for the elephant in the room: ISIS, he said “Only I can defeat ISIS, I know more than the Generals”he is full of shit, wouldn’t know an ISIS  combatant unless that guy was hiding in the rough on one of his golf courses.

Go over the list, have fun. In memory of HST.

Democrats, get off your asses

Dear Democrats, I love you, I am one, but I am still seething over what you did to Bernie in 2016  but let bygones be bygones. A few suggestions to start putting into effect starting very, very soon.

Clean out everyone who was power in the DNC in 2016, they backed the wrong horse and should be at the very least shamed in public for screwing Bernie.

Bernie is wonderful and the kids love him and he has great ideas but he will be almost 80 in 2020.

Elizabeth Warren is great and a tireless attacker of the GOP but she will be almost 75 in 2020.

Sure, Trump is 70 but he doesn’t look it or act like it and perception is everything.

Please plan NOW for the 2018 mid term elections and really for 2020, find some Dems under 50 years of age to start grooming them for not only 2020 but 2024 too.

Here are a few :

Stacey Abrams: State representative, Georgia

Pete Buttigieg: Mayor of South Bend

Julian Castro: US secretary of housing and urban development

Tulsi Gabbard:State representative, Hawaii

Eric Garcetti: Mayor, Los Angeles

Andrew Gillum: Mayor, Tallahassee

Hakeem Jeffries: State representative, Nu Yawk

Mike Johnston: Senator, Colorado

Joseph P.Kennedy: State representative, Massachusetts

Seth Moulton: State representative, Massachusetts

These are just a few, there are more, I did not opine on any of the above so that you may look them up on your own and make your own opinion.

We as a group, organization have to join together and fight hard and have the same vision from city councils all the way up to the White House. Stop being so “nice” and get down and dirty just like the GOP does, “nice” doesn’t win you elections. A lot of what is being undone by President Twitter and his henchmen today has to be corrected tomorrow.

Please contact your local branch and volunteer, and start NOW.

You better learn these Russian words

In light of the recent revelations that Russia interfered with our presidential elections in 2016 I thought it would be prudent to do a few things:

Buy stock in Rosetta Stone , I think a lot of people will start to try to study the language.

Learn to like eating borscht

Buy cold weather clothes in case some of us get shipped to Siberia

I would say get used to the taste of vodka, but some of us have been practicing that for years, ditto for caviar.

Kidding, but think about this for a moment, another country’s “government” decided to put major resources into influencing our presidential election because they did not like a certain candidate. I know, I know she was not liked here either but it took some serious planning to pull this off. Yes, I understand they did not fool with voting machines but they influenced people’s opinions  towards a particular candidate who was already polarizing enough to have done the job all by herself.

So are we Russian dupes? Were a lot of people not going to vote for her anyway? Would the election have gone another way if The Donald was not a candidate? I don’t know, I have no way of knowing and probably running a dead guy against her would have given us the same results and I don’t mean Bernie.

Some words and phrases to learn how to say in Russian, please add any you deem needed.

Help

please

mercy

how much?

are you kidding me?

no way Jose …………..except it would have to be changed to Sergei

annex

takeover

gulag

firing squad

rations

great, fantastic, incredible,leader: all to be used if you get asked about Putin.

Hope the next time I write this it wont be from Saint Peterburg and I don’t mean Florida.

Thanks Dems for the president !

Before any of you get your panties in a wringer let me say I am a registered Democrat and have been since 2006 when I switched over from the GOP after  President Cheney got his puppet George W to do his bidding. I had also been watching the hypocrisy of GOP’ers  spouting Christian beliefs and getting caught with hookers, under-aged partners, kids, drugs and homosexual liaisons.

Nothing against the gay community but don’t be spouting Christian values and get caught sliding your foot under the bathroom stall looking for a sausage sandwich. Or if you are straight don’t get caught banging your babysitter like a screen door in a hurricane, but I digress.

The point is there is no outrage against the “leadership” ( there’s an oxymoron for you)  of the DNC who railroaded Bernie in order to get Hellary in office because they thought she was the “sure thing”. The only sure thing was they handed the election to Twitler who has turned out to be worse than possibly imagined and he’s only six weeks into his term. Everyone at the DNC should be shown the door, I do not know if putting Perez and Ellison in the lead will help but it’s a start.

So here is the point: all the ranting and railing on social media is not going to topple President Twitler out of office, it’s not going to take the GOP out of power and its not going to give people decent health care. And speaking of healthcare the GOP is pushing their program as an “opportunity’ for people to get healthcare and that it will be “available for all that need it” until you see the price tag and what little it covers.

That great humanitarian Sen. Jason Chaffetz R-Utah suggested people by pass getting an expensive cell phone so they can afford healthcare. Jason, get your head out of your ass and realize that is not possible and while you are at it enjoy your FREE healthcare and perks, but I digress.

So back to the point: postings on social media are not going to shift the balance of power, planning for the midterm elections IS and the big prize is going to be in 2020. We cannot hope that the public gets fed up with the GOP insensitivity, lack of inclusiveness, the meddling in reproductive rights, the pushing of their religious agenda and the protection of the 1%’s wealth (including theirs). If you don’t think there is funny goings on in Washington just look at Mitch Mc Connell’s net worth when he started in congress and what it is today, but I digress dammit!

Start now, congregate, communicate and integrate yourself first into local politics, then county, then state and finally national, especially you millennials, it’s going to take a large group of you voting to help right this ship.

End of days?

Perusing thru my newspaper one morning this week this is what I was met with:

First it was day 31 of President Hairdo’s term and the “I will destroy ISIS in 30 days” plan had not been implemented yet.

President Fixitall was quoted as saying: “ It’s an unbelievably  complex subject. Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.” Duh, duh and double duh.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was quoted: ” As of right now I don’t have any evidence of any phone calls between Trump campaign officials and Russian operatives.”  Well it would probably help to have have a special prosecutor INVESTIGATE first and maybe, just maybe there will be some evidence, no one is going to walk up to Nunes on a street corner and say “Pssst, I have some evidence of Russian involvement in the Trump administration.”

President Tinyhands decides to increase military budget by 54 BILLION dollars, it appears the 25 countries with military budgets below us might be gaining on our budget if they COMBINED all their budgets together. We couldn’t have that now could we President Testosterone?

Feds to rescind opposition to a key portion of Texas’ voter ID law, one of the toughest ID laws created specifically to disenfranchise the poor and minority voters. Jim Crow anyone?

EPA hater Scott Pruitt, who coincidentally is the head of the EPA ( you couldn’t make this up, no one would believe you) used private e-mails to communicate with staff while serving as Oklahoma’s attorney general. No response from the GOP who did not know whether to shit or go blind because of Hillary’s e mail server use.

Speaking of presidents with penis envy, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un or Mini-Me as he is called behind closed doors executed 5 senior security officials with an anti-aircraft gun. That’s like killing a cockroach with a shotgun.

President Hairdo also promised to spend a TRILLION dollars to rebuild America’s infrastructure with no plan on how to pay for it. Maybe he will tell the contractors the work wasn’t good enough and to take ten cents on the dollar or see you in court like he does for his businesses.

Remember this was just ONE day in the life of the world, dammit to hell !

Just a reminder Millennials: get off your couches and start to motivate and organize your generation to  #resist or you are going to get more screwed than you already are.

As always, happy trails and don’t forget your meds.

Charlatan in Chief

I will not make the dumpster my president, he is abhorrent, duplicitous, self serving, selfish, inconsiderate, lying, two-faced and incredibly stupid. He believes he is smarter than others, he is not, he believes he is wiser, he is not, he believes he is craftier, he is not.

What he is, is a little man who needed help from others to get where he is without giving credit to anyone but himself. And he has to belittle others to make himself feel better. Little man’s syndrome, look it up, its psychology 101.

My things are better, bigger, shinier than anyone elsers, again little man syndrome. You compliment him (Putin) he is your friend, you belittle him (Meryl) he is tweeting his displeasure at six a.m. like a little high school girl.

I will ride out the next four years while he embarrasses the USA in front of the world.
