The enabling society

Some colleges are considering quiet rooms so the children can rest, meditate or play with their phones without being bothered or upset. Horseshit I say, you mamby-pamby snot nosed weaklings better get with the program because its a dog eat dog world out there, survival of the fittest and you are going to be roadkill if you don’t butch up.

Notice how society is changing, you owe back taxes? you don’t have to pay all of them back, hire a company that for a small fee that will renegotiate your  debt. Owe too much on credit cards? hire a company that will go to bat for you and get your OBLIGATION reduced. And these companies advertise shamelessly too, their spiel on the radio is pretty graphic: “Owe money? you don’t have to pay it back, let us represent you and help you lower your debt.” ” You don’t have to pay it back” is what they say……..that is what frosts my mini-wheats.

So its like having a good Grandparent, Junior you are in over your head, let me take care of that for you.It’s sliding over into technology, cars that drive themselves, I can see it now, a car accident? wasn’t me officer I was just riding along, the computer was driving, not my fault. Lane change accident? Wasn’t my fault the lane change warning program was defective. Rear end collision? not my fault.  the auto brake program wasn’t working properly.

I saw an ad for a bed that makes itself for Pete’s sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not kidding it’s called Smart Duvet and its a gawdamm app on your phone, you get out of bed, touch the app and the inflated bed cover folds over and your bed is made, how lazy is that? Mind you it uses a vacuum cleaner type of motor to inflate the duvet so its using electricity, talk about a carbon footprint.

So when is this coming? “:Honey I am horny, let’s make love” ………..”wait a minute darlin so I can start my make love app, it will dim the light, pour some wine  and start my penis pump.”

Call me a cranky curmudgeon but the axis is starting to lean to a blameless society.

Democrats, wake the hell up.

Dear Dems, now that the hangover is over and this election was not a bad dream here is a reality check. Trump is the President and no amount of Facebook whinny postings about doing a recall or petition to the electoral college is going to change that.

First you put all your eggs in one basket and it wasn’t a basket of deplorables, it was a basket of arrogance. You had the same arrogance that Hillary had thinking this was in the bag. Shame on you.

You undermined the one person who had the followers who could beat Trump. Shame on you. Sure Bernie did not have high “Q” ratings and he reminded everyone of their crazy rambling uncle but he had the pulse of the people and he stayed on point talking about policy, solutions and issues. The entire DNC needs to overhauled and new blood and staff that listen to the people’s problems need to be put in place. If the leadership of the DNC was on a show say like……………..um let me think here………………….like The Apprentice, they would have been fired for screwing up a sure thing.

Sure the majority of the pundits picked Trump to lose but they should have looked at revisionist history and remembered Dewey versus Truman. That she was as disliked as much as he was should have been a red flag.

If this was a ballgame it would have been a HUGE upset. Here is the hard part, we have four years of this man who was probably as surprised as anyone that he won and is probably wondering “What the hell have I gotten myself into?”. Every positive step we have taken forward is going to be lost with the gang of ultra conservatives, Neocons, closet racists, Neo Nazis, KKK followers, homophobes and women haters that will make up his cabinet and sycophants.

What analysts will be going over for years is trying to figure how 53% of women voted for Trump, did they really hate Hillary that much?

There are no retakes here Donald, this is the real deal and the whole world is watching.

Trump supporters racist? Nah !

So Pamela Ramsey Taylor and Beverly Whaling, politicians from the great state of West Virginia have disparaged First Lady Michelle Obama along with the school kids in ( pick a state, any state) that have written derogatory remarks on lockers and walls at their schools directed towards minority and African american students.

Racists are coming out of the closet much like the gay population has in the last decade or so.His supporters have seen the GOP candidate not be hurt by his remarks and he has been elected President and nothing of consequence has happened to him, so they feel “if he can get away with it, why cant I?”

What is alarming is that no one or group is putting a stop to this, no one is being chastised or admonished for this behavior. I hope those two yahoos get fired at the very least. Unfortunately they will probably have a parade for them, maybe they can go to North Carolina  and join the Trump parade being put on by the KKK there.

No pastors are upset about this behavior, social media is full of the stories but you do not see a reverend or one of the television evangelicals dedicating a program to combat this racism.

The extremists have been emboldened by Trump, they are starting to get out of control and I hope none of them are hurt when some people fight back, you know that is coming.

The Wall

I would not be surprised if Canada starts thinking about a wall but they were smart enough to have a real extensive procedure to apply for dual citizenship. It is hard to get approved, trust me, I looked it up.

The Mexicans? Hell, they will probably pay for the wall just to keep US out.

Here are some suggestions for the Trump cabinet purely in jest*cough*:

SEC chairman: Bernie Madoff

Wall Street overseer: Ivan Boesky

Secretary of Education: Sarah Palin

Ambassador to Cuba: Marco Rubio

Cultural attache’: Chachi

Ambassador to Siberia: Alec Baldwin

Secretary of Defense: Arnold Schwarzenegger

Secretary of health: Dr Ben Carson

Ambassador to Afghanistan: Ted Cruz

Coal mine inspector: Mark Cuban

Entertainment attache’:Rosie O’Donnell

Federal Reserve: John Stumpf

SVU director: Bill Cosby

IT director: Anthony Wiener

Health and Human services: Dr Jack Kevorkian ( yes he’s dead, so what?)

FBI director: Peter Sellers, yes he’s dead too

CIA director: Carrie Mathison

Immigration: Eric Estrada

Good start, we’ll see what develops

Don’t trust her, cant stand him

So in a couple of weeks America will be voting for the person they want as President and at the same time they will also probably be voting for a person they dislike immensely. That’s what it has come down to. The ultimate lesser of two evils which has been bandied about for decades but it is finally true.

The groundswell against the Trumpster has been picking up steam of late. When you see Hollywood produce slick online “ads” and celebrities come out of the woodworks you know the “liberal elite” has coalesced their forces.

On the other hand the conservatives have rolled out the Wiki Leaks offensive. Leaked documents and e mails tarnishing the Clinton campaign as part of their October surprise. Rumors have it that Julian Assange has a Russian connection that leads right to Putin’s office. Based on the attack on the Clinton campaign, Julian Assange wants Trump to win the election or despises Hillary very much or both.

Trump not only has shot himself in the foot but is in the process of loading the gun ( his mouth) and getting ready to shoot his other foot with the pussyfooting (sorry couldn’t resist) around  the denial of the sexual harassment stories that are coming out, at last count there were eleven accusers as of 10/23. This will turn into a imbroglio of Cosby-like proportions.   Of course he cannot admit to it and he shouldn’t say he will sue them after the election ( which he has said he would) but he should talk policy and what his plans are and say he will handle the allegations after the election, but he can not do any of the above because he has painted himself into a corner.

Trump epitomizes what America is by working to build an empire and bullying his way around the world, being and thinking “we’re number one” being brash, opportunistic and at the same time being envied for being successful.

Hillary has a terrific resume’ great experience as a lawyer, a Senator, a Secretary of State, the First Lady and a governors wife. Unfortunately there is very little to like about her.Her pores ooze blind ambition and her years of dodging questions, subpoenas and inquiries almost makes her as bulletproof as John Gotti once was.

I predict the vote wont even be close, she will win and God help us either way.

Trump that vote

Well kids its down to the last thirty days before the most seminal election of your lifetime. Why YOUR lifetime? because everything in your life, your friends, your relatives and the world will be affected by who is sleeping in the White House.

Do not think that by voting for Johnson or Stein is going to be a vote for Bernie or a vote against the system of oligarch’s that are firmly entrenched in the corridors of power.

Hillary and Trump are not liked, in fact this is the perfect storm of people voting for a candidate simply because they cannot stand the other candidate.

Hillary has the blood-lust drive of ambition not seen in too many politicians let a lone a female one. She is seen as an enabler of her husbands peccadilloes, an attacker of his accusers, protecting him like a mother cub. There is very little to like about her. All you can say nice about her is that she appears to be a good mother, very loyal wife and grandmother. Oh and a very hard worker and relentless.

When I heard Trump was running I was interested. He appeared to be a successful businessman, a no nonsense speaker. Not able to be bought out by special interests, not an insider or a typical politician.

Unfortunately he opened his mouth and has insulted everyone but white, frustrated, poorly educated racist xenophobes. He is also a businessman who while using the system to file bankruptcies burns bridges with suppliers and contractors at an alarming rate.  Not even getting into how he treats and thinks of women.

If those of you outside of the United States think this election will not affect you, think again, he will alienate the rest of the world, she might not be seen as strong enough which might cause her to do something drastic to prove she has the “stones” to be the leader of the free world. So you cannot vote here if you are from abroad but talk to your friends and family that you have here, get a feel for what they are thinking. I hear that except for the winters,Canada is a pretty neat place and they have a progressive Prime Minister.

Cheers

Trump versus ISIS

So the Donald is like the neighborhood bully who is all full of talk but very little substance.

He says he will take care of the problem without explanation of how he will. Keep in mind the current President has a plan in place right NOW that is bombing Isis strongholds on a daily basis with the help of our allies.

So what Donald? what will you do differently? Fire them? Not pay them? Stiff them like he has small companies he’s hired  and offer them thirty cents on the dollar for their services? Berate them? Bullshit them? Distract them? Send his army of lawyers and accountants after them? Sue them?

Send the armed services at them? Hopefully there will be enough people to do that unless everyone asks for deferments like the five Donald had during Vietnam.

Does this megalomaniac think he is going to scare these lunatics? These people are ruthless and how can you defend against people that are willing to strap a bomb  on their ass and take the ultimate one for the team?

Sure we had a T.V. star as a president before but Saint Reagan was guvnor of California first and he had a team of professionals around him with Nancy and her astrologer as backup. Who does Donald have? Omarosa and his kids?  Gary Busey? Scott Baio? underwear model Antonio Sabate Jr?  Ann B. Davis? Uncle Charley? Kato Kaelin? Urkel? Sheldon Cooper?

Is the Donald even going to have a cabinet? He said at the RNC that he had all the answers and the he and he only could solve the problems we had. Well shit those cabinet meetings will be very short and sweet.

If he wins will there be a Playboy magazine with spread of the first lady?  Could the first lady be the first to be a Playmate of the Month candidate?

Are Frank and Claire Underwood of House of Cards coming to life in the Trump’s or are they the Clinton’s? This will be a seminal election, the way America rolls for the next few decades will be decided here.

Will the GOP rue the day they blocked Obama’s Scotus nomination of Merrick Garland as a moderate? The GOP is so arrogant they will win the Presidency that they have held this off until after the election.  If and when Hillary wins she will nominate someone further to the left than Garland. What will the grey old party do then? They are so out of touch with the real world that they are caught in a 1950’s time warp.
