This Election is 2MERICA – Donny and Ivanka Edition

?  Crazy times, friends.

Trump actually is a perfect movie bad guy. He’s got the TV history, he’s got the endless stories of narcissism and pure phoniness just dripping off him.

A billionaire liberal asshole in a trucker hat = Republican? Welcome to 2MERICA.


He also can comp you 4 days/3 nights in one of his resorts to make you like him, I guess, or at least wish for such a trip from your daddy.

The Don = The Pimp. Most republicans and other sheeples are now his bitches.

So this is the year I think you and I need to get off our keister and actually help the democrats.

We each could drive hundreds of voters to the polls to help Stop Trump.


I usually ignore them all, eventually let myself get upset at the republicans, talk to my friends, fight with the extended family, internet battle, post a blog, and then vote.

This time around I want to do more. I simply cannot let this

become president without a fight.


Oddly enough the most encouraging and interesting site during Trump Takeover™ has been Redstate.  Their leader Erickson is gone but the remaining community saw through Trump immediately. For a minute they were aligned with Cruz but since then t’s been homebase for the never trump movement, and fascinating reading from the right.

It appears not all conservatives are racists and/or uneducated psychos, and some of them are searching for the exit, or their own party, at this point.

Ew! No one should touch their daughter like that! If I saw my father in law do that to my wife I might have to punch him, or worse, start an investigation into WTF!


OK I guess this is a theme, but here’s one more creepy photo of The Don with his Ivanka:

He’s perched on a Lambo door-sil, she’s perched on a psychopath with a bad crush on his daughter.

 

February Horserace Update

The horserace is getting interesting now with Valentines Day around the corner. The Republicans are facing armegeddon, the Democrats facing deja-vu.


 

On the redneck side there’s donny wreaking havoc. He’s bullied his way to the front of the pack, and since rednecks love a bully and worship money they are delirious with “pussy” taunts and the reality TV fodder of this carnival barker.

No matter that he’s a pro-choice, womanizing billionaire New York liberal that speaks with the cadence, and often content of, a 4th grade rich little fuck.

These 3 men have a lot in common but only 1 had a wealthy daddy that wouldn’t sell houses to people like the other 2. Woody Guthrie wrote a song about it too.


No matter he’s been called the white Don King, or charges $400 for room service in his hotels, or is on his 3rd trophy wife, or prefers immigrants to both marry and hire under the table, or promises nothing more than “it will be great, you’ll see – so great, greater than ever before!”, nothing political stops him because he’s an entertainment show.

Most rednecks are xenophobic emotional types that respond to authoritarianism, and he’s giving it to them more than perhaps any presidential candidate ever. The new brownshirts – ignorant, racist, and demanding to be entertained. These are not political people or concerned citizens.

Hi there handsome. Same premise, same pose, same stare. The mustache does make the man though. Donny’s hair is his version.


So it’s a full scale wrestling match now between donny and every ounce of republican establishment remaining. He’s winning the popular vote easily but has almost no congressional support. He’s winning the media game but almost all of it is negative.

I foresee a brokered convention: Cruz/Rubio and donny battle it out to a near draw as the chaos continues. The GOP is fractured, reeling, and desperate. Backroom politics goes around the donny show and nominates speaker of the house Paul Ryan with someone like Bush or Fiorina as VP. The Cleveland convention goes down in history.

Calm waters outside but some serious hardball will be being played indoors in Cleveland this summer.

Of course, this forces donny to run 3rd party and he attempts to sue his way onto state ballots way beyond the deadline. He does his usual victim/bully 2-step, claiming it is un-american that he can’t run 3rd party and screams and shouts until his face is red and his hair goes crazy. His people scream and scare everyone. Oh wait….

 


 

With the blueberries we have a near repeat of 2008. Hillary Clinton is the established moderate democratic candidate – socially moderate, hawkish on war, and in bed with the media and the unions. Old news. Very hard to trust, in a vintage 20th century politician sort of way.


 

Hillary Clinton discusses her plan for health care reform March 20, 1994 in Florida.

Hillary Clinton in 1994. She should have run back then but her husband got in the way.


From left field comes a new, charming face that uses populist plain-talk and truth-telling to shine the light on the broken promises of the american dream. Other countries have better services and better responses to citizens needs! Other countries can do it, so can we! It’s the lefty version of Make America Great Again, but the model isn’t 1920’s america it’s 2020’s northern Europe.

Bernie is old, grumpy, and doesn’t always have specifics for how to move the country further to the left. He’s talking about some free college education for every citizen, he’s talking about single-payer healthcare (medicare for all), he’s talking about direct investments in infrastructure and cleaner power sources. He’s talking like Obama talked but wasn’t able to deliver. He would be the first jewish president, at least as big of a deal as being the first woman president.

No matter how many incredulous times FoxNews sneers socialist? like we’re in 1915 Russia – people want their government to serve them, not corporations and foreign conflicts.

no sleep til’ brooklyn!

My crystal ball is foggy here. I don’t know if Bernie has the stamina, chops, and overall appeal to knock off Hillary. Her inevitability is there, both helping to hold ground and hurting the overall package. It feels like we already had the Clinton thing, and while it was good for what it was, this ain’t the 1990’s anymore.

But I’m not ready to feel the Bern, which basically means going after Hillary. I hope those two save their powder to decimate whatever disaster represents the rednecks this time. At least Bernie is starting the discussion about modern democratic-socialist government and hopefully educating americans on the reality of the world.

We are stuck in the two party system and things like democratic-socialism (and the Tea Party, if that still existed) help us break the grip of the 2 parties.

I don’t believe R & D are a mono-party but I think they make more easy money in a stalemate, easily achieved with only 2 powers.

Paranoia Loses To Reality

So I took my free obama phone down to the local socialist party office to pick up my welfare check, and while standing in the long line with the other workers I was thinking about my lack of medical bills or national taxes due. I wasn’t clear on how our muslim el presidente wished me to show my devotion, but since he has uplifted us all from poverty by shutting down our capitalist system and removing all free enterprise from the US I believe major statues of him at every school ?and public area are just the start. What a great socialist country we live in.

This is the fantasy that crazy Republicans believe is happening. Let me give you the truth: no free phones, no welfare check, huge medical bills, huge tax bill, freedom of religion, freedom of press, freedom of thought, freedom of enterprise, and a serious lack of fanfare and devotion required to join the party. No Obama parades or statues.

Can you even imagine what would be going on if GWBush was president when Bin Laden was caught? We’d have several national holidays full of parades, featuring church groups re-enacting the brave raid from the the situation room. Storybooks would be written and re-written to rename the boogie man Osama, the hero George. Without Dick Cheney’s steady (cold) hand to guide us through this big bad world all kids would sleep in fear.

Tea Partiers are falling on their bayonets.

But instead reality won. The american people looked at the real situation in our schools, in our streets, in our homes, and yes, on the world stage, and saw in Barrack Obama a capable, confident, and steady leader. Romney was a?mish-mash of old ideas and new money, and his facade was cracking from day one.

 

[update] Here’s a look back at the whole campaign, ADD style:

America Prevails

Supreme Court USA


The Supreme Court decided the ACA (Affordable Healthcare Act), or Obamacare as it’s been called (usually negatively), was in fact legal and constitutional, particularly the mandate that all citizens must be covered somewhere/somehow. To reach this ruling, the high court actually rejected the term mandate and labeled it a tax, maintaining the governments right to enact it.

Good news. The doomsday scenarios at Faux and Friends are getting more hilarious by the hour. This idea of doing the same thing as most other wealthy nations somehow terrifies them, and they are convinced that Michelle Obama will fine their overweight asses for not eating enough broccoli.

Even after admitting that many doctors can opt out, that the poor are immediately helped, and that the rich will still receive the best medical service on the planet, these republicans still believe this is the end of it all. Very funny and strange, they think this is more important than almost starting WW3 a few years back. Comedy these days is Fox news.? Continue reading

Simplify If You Want, But Remain Accurate aka Obama Takes Out Osama

Of course we are all talking about, and adjusting to, the big news of the day.

66 years to the day the last boogie man got his, Obama ordered the strike that most americans have been waiting for.


Obama_and_Biden_await_updates_on_bin_Laden

Obama, Biden, Clinton, Gates, and other top military advisors watch in Washington as our troops covertly land in Pakistan next to Osama’s house.


I never wanted war with Iraq and I never wanted to pay for bringing Afghanistan closer to the 20th century. Just about every one of my friends who would identify as an american liberal believed the same.

The raw emotions of 9/11, the fear marketing perfected by Karl Rove and Fox News, and the general ignorance of world affairs suffered by most americans led us into this delusion that we can declare a military war on what is in effect a criminal organization.

You don’t use marines to fight the mafia. If you don’t understand why I can’t help you. Continue reading
