Right off the bat, I have to reiterate that I do not now, nor will I ever, agree with or likely come around to forgiving anyone who is still supporting *45 at this time—ie: those who still make up his core, or more accurately, his base, and I use that term in all of its worst definitions.
Many of us wanted to see change come to Washington, DC, and it turned out to be very sad that the Democratic Party, in its continued stupidity, offered up a choice of two rather bad candidates to run against what was, at the time, mostly just a really, really bad @GOP one. Time—just a little over 500 days—has since shown us that *45 is way more that just a bad person, much less President, he’s a lying (we already knew that) , misogynistic, xenophobic racist and purely evil piece of skunk scat. There are a lot more horrible adjectives that describe this puckered anus, but the saddest thing of all is that his mesmerized base can’t or won’t see this all to obvious fact. That is why they will always be his Base as far as I am concerned.
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way . . . onward.
Much of what I’m going to say next has already been said multiple times by multiple others far more famous and eloquent than I, but they bear repeating, anyway. It’s funny—in the sad and unfortunate way, not the actual funny one—that so many on the ‘so-called’ right (white evangelicals, all @GOP republicans at this point, *45’s base, @NRA leadership, white nationalists, etc.)—are so quick to use crude language and suggest violent responses to any challenge to their supposed authority–and, in the case of supremacists, superiority–yet are totally surprised and offended when they receive the same treatment in response.
Well tough toenails. That’s really, really, really, really, really too bad. Decades of politeness have had no effect on these clowns. All they ever saw that as was weakness. For a long time I thought that the stereotypical image of the cowardly bully was just that—a stereotype. But it turns out that, at least insofar as it applies to the above mentioned clowns, it really is true.
The far right or Alt-Right or whatever they’re calling themselves lately, are the real ‘snowflakes (their own term for liberals/libruls/libtards or whatever else). Since the loss of ‘The Fairness Doctrine’, the proliferation of alt-right radio hosts and later, FOXNEWS – their arrogance, their deliberately obnoxious behavior, and their promulgation of conspiracy theories and just plain lies has become progressively worse and more blatant. Yet they’re the first ones to call any and every piece of relevant, vetted and accurate report #FakeNews simply because it’s unflattering and/or damaging to their narrative. This is especially and egregiously true of *45, himself.
But now, they’re the ones who are mortally offended when they’re confronted with equally vehement responses. They’re suddenly surprised and shocked to see the folks they’re been ridiculing for decades as milquetoasts, pussies and spineless weaklings standing up and SHOUTING OBSCENITIES! in their faces. And it’s not going to end any time soon.
It’s too damned bad and too damned late for *45’s base to come around to the realization that they chose a complete and utter moron to be their hero. Their avatar. Their messiah. You picked the wrong guy, ya boneheads.
Even as a young, naive, barely-in-my-twenties, newbie sailor, I knew a lying, cheating, crooked conman (I will never, ever refer to him as a con artist as there is nothing approaching artistry in this putrid piece of kangaroo excrement) for exactly what he was the moment he made his first public statement back in the 70s.
He has never been a good businessman (multiple business bankruptcies, failed airline, failed scam university & failed casinos are just the most glaring ones) or a good negotiator, or a good deal-maker. The only thing he ever successfully sold was his far overvalued name, and even that became worthless to US banking institutions in very short order. The reason we’ll never see his promised tax returns is because they’ll show that he was never an actual, viable billionaire. All of his supposed worth was tied up in deeds, certificates, IOUs, and whatever else other people hold while he was scrambling to make various monthly payments. In other words: debt. Until the Russians and all of the money they needed to launder came along, that is.
Without his tax returns, this is all unproven conjecture, innuendo and rumor, but it’s the only viable reason he continues to refuse to release them as he promised to do several years ago. And his ‘they’re still under audit’ excuse is wearing very thin. Sheer, in fact. Diaphanous. See-through.
Now this moose turd is happily selling the United States of America off to Putin in exchange for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver. I’m sure even the brain dead white evangelicals will recognize that unsubtle metaphor. At this point it’s totally and completely appropriate to refer to *45 by his alter ego, Vladonald Trumputin. And anything and everything much, much worse, so feel free to pile on any others you can think of.

It saddens me to no end that his pusillanimous base can’t see that the #TaxScam foisted upon us by *45 and the complicit @GOP was a slow, deliberate sell-off of the USA to corporate America and the richest one to two percent. But no, his clown base not only voted for it to happen to themselves and all the rest of us, but they’re happily and vociferously cheering it on. And it’s all because they blame their lost jobs and stagnant wages on the ‘liberal democrats’.
I have no doubt that there are some corrupt democrats who’ve taken advantage of the massive influx of dark money into their campaign coffers by PACs, SuperPACs, DC lobbyists, private donors and corrupt organizations too numerous (again) to name. Sadly, it’s far more common for the pretend religious conservatives of the @GOP to not only gleefully participate in this greed-driven free-for-all, but they’re the ones who created this hell-on-earth situation in the first place with Citizens United.
And don’t even get me started on all the VooDoo Economics crap that originally came from Reagan’s trickle-down (on) policies and have been repeatedly forced down our throats every time a Republican is elected to our highest office, always with horribly detrimental effects. I say don’t get me started because I don’t have any degrees or experience in theoretical or real world economics, but I have seen first-hand the disastrous consequences that have occurred every time they’ve been implemented.
It’s all of these corrupt business/corporation/investment group owners, the stock holders, the company Presidents and Corporate Officers that are truly responsible for the slow and systematic destruction of the middle and lower classes, but *45’s base are too stupid to realize that and/or too stubborn to admit they’ve been mislead by the constant lies of a #FakeBillionaire, the complicit @GOP and their corporate enablers. They’re the ones killing you/us off.
It’s called runaway capitalism. Theoretically, most economic and/or governmental systems aren’t evil in and of themselves. Communism, socialism, capitalism: all have their good points and their bad ones. The problems always come with the implementation of the system, not the system, itself.
Communism seems quite wonderful in its precepts-from each according to his ability, to each according to his need; or something like that. But, as practiced pretty much everywhere in the world, it has been nothing but one unmitigated disaster after another. Even in economically powerful China, all is not really all that well.
Socialism, too, at least as it’s been practiced in Central and South America has not proven to be very efficient, or even good. The model practiced in Europe has been more successful except for the disenfranchised, but that is due far more to Corporate Greed than any faults with the system.
This brings us to Capitalism, which on the surface appears to be the most successful of the systems discussed so far. And it has led to unprecedented innovation, growth, wealth, advancement and other benefits never before seen in this world. It has also led to unprecedented levels of greed—the lust for money and power that somehow never seems to be quenched or satiated, and the aforementioned destruction of the middle and lower classes.
Runaway Capitalism. Free, unfettered, unregulated capitalism. An evil, evil thing, and it’s happening right now.
So, here’s an idea for all the MAGAHats out there. How about you get off your lazy anus pads and demand that every time a company replaces one or ten or a hundred of you with automation (far and away the largest killer of good, high-paying American jobs), they not be allowed to make a single $ of profit from that ‘upgrade’ until the replaced workers have found or been trained for equal or better paying jobs. All of them. Every last one. If none can be found, or if the new jobs pay significantly less, the old company covers the difference until the pay of the new job catches up with the old.
If the employee(s) are only a few years from retirement, the Company is responsible for any and all employees replaced by said automation until they retire with full benefits or die.
What’s that? You’ve lost the rights and security the unions once fought so hard to get for you?
Gasp! How and when did that happen?
How about none of the greedy unfeeling, uncaring corporate entities be allowed to profit from the very misery they are responsible for creating. How about the exact same thing happens every time they kill tens or hundreds or thousands of jobs by moving them elsewhere in cost-cutting moves. How about they not be allowed to profit from such a devastating maneuver until ALL of the displaced workers are compensated by the killing entity. How about the greedy CEOs/COOs/CFOs, stock holders, board members etc, etc, etc, not be allowed to profit from your misery until that inequality is addressed.
No? You don’t have the fortitude for such action? You’d rather blame ‘libtards’ and ‘dumbocrats’, as you call them? Go for it. Continue celebrating your ignorance. After all, you chose it, you wear it as if it’s some sort of badge of honor. It isn’t. Willful ignorance is exactly what the words imply. You’re specifically and purposely choosing to be stupid. You’re not only letting Corporate Greed kill you, and the rest of us with you, you’re actively cheering it on.
So, no, until you wake your stupid asses up, this is the only #civility any of you are going to get from the ‘libtards’ you erroneously think you’re owning while you happily destroy yourselves and everyone else along the way.
Ready? Here it is.
