What a mess

The investigation of the Trump campaign ties to Russia and their influence on the past election needs an independent investigation. It’s becoming obvious that the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are trying to hush it all up in hopes that it will go away. It’s not going away, clowns, so get over it. We, the American People, are pretty pissed off about this, and we want to know what happened. So cut the closed door crap, where you’ll try to find a convenient rug in the room, and let this play out in front of us. We have a right to know. They stole our election, not yours. This is about our rights: our right to vote, and our right to know. Cut the crap.

My Microwave is watching me.

How did the president know that I talk to myself about him in the kitchen? I knew I was being surveilled when I woke early one morning to find my microwave, refrigerator, and kitchen wall clock discussing the dossier they had built up on my treasonous activity. There was only one thing to do: I put on my aluminum foil helmet and jammies and went back to bed, where deep sleep protects me from Steve Bannon’s penetration of my psyche during my dreams. Now, I can continue my work with the Klingon Empire to overthrow Earth governments in the past (their past, the Klingons, I mean) without interference. Hail the House of Duras!

Seriously folks, is this the state of American government today? These latest allegations from Trump, and the response to criticism of it (especially by Kellyanne Conway), simply indicate to the rest of the world how under-educated the American populace is, when people of this caliber can occupy top level positions within the White House. Do you really want to make America great again? Remove these people from government and never let them hold national political office again.

Same old tax cuts for the rich

Could someone explain to me how the beneficiaries of every damn tax cut for the last twenty years, or more, are suffering so much under a grievous tax burden that they need more tax cuts? The Republican band has one instrument: tax cuts for the wealthiest, masquerading as benefiting everyone. When will the average, under-educated, white American (yes, I hold you accountable for your self-induced stupidity) finally see the con, and give up their support for a party that truly shares no interests with them. I know the Republicans drape themselves in American flags for you, call upon Jesus to help you (because they won’t), claim they’re magically going to restore all the jobs you lost to automation (which they can’t), and restore good old white America of the 1950s (which sucked for everyone but white men), but it’s all a load of bullshit, and a con, nothing more. I’ll say it again, every tax cut they give to the rich does nothing but enrich them more, and that’s exactly what they’re trying to do. Have you seen any of it trickle down? I haven’t, and neither have you, but, unlike you, I don’t buy the flag draped, Jesus begging, America is only for white boys bullshit, and I never did. Wise up.

How many misdirection plays…

… are we as a country going to buy? Answer? None. Investigate President Dimwit’s ties to Russia? He’ll answer with a claim President Obama tapped his phone. The list goes on, but this presidency is too moronic and juvenile to even bother listing them. Stay on focus, no matter what President Twit says, and find a way to end this American political travesty as soon as possible. We need to stop wasting America’s time with this administration and their white supremacist, apocalyptic, I’m the loudmouth in the back of the bar, hate filled Alt-right Christian agenda. And while we’re at it, we need to bitch slap the Republican Party into the stone age (where their ideas come from) for even allowing something this idiotic to happen in the first place.

Why are we fixed on Muslim terrorists?

According to all the statistical analysis of terrorist attacks in the United States since 1970 that I can find, Muslim terrorist attacks account for only seven percent of the attacks. I have to ask why we focus our attention on a group who does very little of the true damage caused by extremism. Extremism, right, or left, is the real problem. Is it because we think they’re easy to identify? Easy for a POTUS to point a finger at and denounce? Or is it because the 93 percent are either home grown, or identify with groups we think are our allies? Perhaps, and I know people will probably take offense to this, it is because they are from a religion we don’t like, and most of the Muslim world sits on a big black pool of our vested self-interest. How long will we use one high profile event to focus people’s attention on the least effective extremists out there, and not devote our resources to combating extremism itself, which is the true enemy of peace, and is generated by our own extremist rhetoric. “We have met the enemy, and they is us.” Sorry, I don’t remember where I stole that one from. My apologies.

Never limit the right to protest

Just read an interesting article about the Republican use of the word freedom, which they drape themselves in, even while introducing legislation around the country designed to make peaceful protest unlawful. This is one distinction I can find between the two major parties; and make no mistake, I’m not a registered Democrat. I have never heard of any Democrat introducing such legislation, so what’s up with Republicans? Have they not read the Constitution of the United States? Or are they so cynical that they know such laws would be struck down by even a conservative Supreme Court (it would have no Constitutional basis to uphold them), but it would take time to reach the Supreme Court, and that would in effect still free speech in the short term, making it appear that they have the approval of the majority, simply because the majority cannot legally voice an opinion. These are the actions of totalitarians. If you don’t like that appellation, Republicans, then stop introducing legislation to limit free speech because bystanders might not like it, or it might interfere with business. Lincoln said “of the people, for the people, and by the people,” not, of the business, by the few, or only by us. I find the behavior of this political party to be more and more un-American, so they really need to stop playing the freedom card, because they don’t know, or care, what freedom really means.
