Trump, the Second Colored President Of The United States

I’m convinced that all the racists who hated Obama were not opposed to Obama because he was the first colored president. He was just the wrong color. None of them wanted a black president. They want a fluorescent, phony tan colored president.

John Boehner proved that for the GOP orange was the acceptable new black. I guess fluorescent, phony tan is the new orange…

 

 

Senate Democrats Have A Short Memory When It Comes To Neil Gorsuch

Before the Senate Democrats get too self-righteous in their opposition to Neil Gorsuch’s nomination, let us reflect that back in 2006 they had no such problem being part of a unanimous voice vote that approved his nomination to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Those senators had to know that someday his name might come up as as SCOTUS nominee but once again Harry Reid played the good little compliant but spineless soldier for George W. Bush.

The Senate Dems knew all about Gorsuch’s right wing, arch strict constructionist viewpoint back then and they were completely cognizant of his mother, who resigned in disgrace and under allegations of corruption (after running the EPA into the ground) in 1983.

This is why I remain totally disgusted with the Democratic Party. As always with the Dems it’s far too little and far too late to be of any help to anyone. Once again they handed total victory to the Republicans last November. Attempting to stand up on their tiny little legs and shout their indignation at all Trump is doing (which their election trouncings made possible) in their tiny little voices just further underscores that there is no longer any viable opposition to the GOP. The Dems may try to saddle all the blame for the certain ruination of our country and possibly the world on Trump. But my their ineptness and corruption amply displayed in the last election, they have no one else to blame but themselves.

Only White Presidents Are Referred To As “President” In The Corporate News Media

Racism is on full display on NPR and at least CBS Radio News. Throughout Dubya’s eight years every news program referred to him as President Bush. With Barack Obama (and you can check the audio archives) he was referred to as “Obama” in every news story that I heard during his eight years in office. I bet he’ll still be referred to as “Obama” instead of “Former President Obama”. Never or hardly ever “President Obama”. And now Trump has only been in the White House for 4 days and in every news story he’s either “Donald Trump” or “President Trump”. Yes, racism is alive and all too well in the corporate news media.

It’s A Third World (Country) After All

money-bags-500x390

Today the United States of America officially downgraded itself to the status of a third world country. In my opinion, we have white male billionaire (and lowly multimillionaire) crooks and thugs in total charge of the government. And just like many third world country governments I think these men will rob us blind to enrich themselves and fill their own offshore, tax-free coffers. I think cutting federal spending by $10 trillion over the next ten years by dismantling or diminishing almost every program and agency that benefits the low income and outright poor, the sick, the environment, arts and culture, food, product, and workplace safety, When Janet Yellen’s term as Fed Reserve chair has expired Donald Trump will replace her with yet another white male billionaire. He will control the entire economic system of our country from top to bottom, enabling him and his cronies to hide the robbery of public funds from the Treasury.

As I’ve written before, we don’t recover from this. Now that certain elements within the GOP have perfected how to steal a national election, they’ll never lose another one. If somehow they are defeated in a future election, the social, economic and social damage began by Trump and continued by subsequent Republican administrations will be so great there will be no fixing it. there will be no reversing it any time soon after that, I put the timeline at about maybe 20 years or so. By that time, thanks to all the environmental protection dismantling by Trump, life on earth may be about over anyway thanks to the increase in the earth’s temperature. But I guess all you Trump voters will be happy as a clam, pleased as pumpkins, especially if the Republicans are still in power. Better Red (under a Republican government) AND dead than Blue (under a Democratic government) and alive.

Should “Ladies Only” Always Include Men? Hell No!

This whole non-issue is crap. Chippendale Dancers’ shows were always targeted as “ladies’ night out” entertainment. So what the hell is wrong if Vivica A. Fox wants to have a reality TV show which revives the ’80s for women who either missed out or want to relive it (and both groups don’t want the hassle of driving down to a club or casino and paying to see the show live)?

And so what if Fox says the dancers dance for ladies only and “hell no” to dancing for gays? It’s her goddamn TV show and she can control who gets let in to see it live but she has zero control over who can watch it on TV. And if the ratings remain low because not enough women are watching it and the show’s canceled, then the market has spoken.

And of course the potential irony here is that some of the male strippers employed by the show might be gay themselves, just like there are lesbian strippers who perform for men. Nobody in the audience cares anyway because it’s the visuals, titillation, and fantasies components of the entertainment that matter anyway.

And besides that, there’s a greater issue involved here. What the hell is wrong with women getting together in a venue without men or vice versa? I may be a political liberal but I guess in some ways I’m a social libertarian. It’s both genetic and cultural that in some situations men only want to party with men and women only want to party with women. This behavior is established during childhood and you can observe it everyday. Children will naturally choose which play and activities are co-ed and which are segregated by gender and they will freely switch back and forth at any given time. But the important point here is that it is by their own choice.

 

The Purple (Blue and Red combined) Yolk’s On Us

Our country is now Humpty Dumpty (wish we had a real egghead as president but we’ve just the opposite) fallen from the wall and there’s no putting it back together again even into the fragmented mess it was before.

It’s clear to me the Democratic Party remains too clueless to ever learn how to communicate with what’s left of its traditional base that they didn’t disenfranchise with its elitist, right wing alignment with the wealthy elite who took over the party over the past 40 years. The Party killed itself off by no longer remaining relevant to the base it once championed and represented.

The Republicans, on the other hand, perfected the ability to promise their deluded working class and low income people among its voter base everything and deliver nothing while incomprehensibly earning the enthusiastic support and continuing votes from that base. “Take away my job and my health care? Yes, sir, may I lose another?!” It’s the battered spouse syndrome applied to an entire nation. It’s easy to do when you smack someone across the mouth and convince them it was someone with a different skin color, ethnicity, and liberal political orientation what done it.

So, everyone continue to fight among yourselves. I’m through with this insane train ride. Next stop, Willoughby (Twilight Zone reference). This is where I get off.

Donald Trump–Quitter-In-Chief?

http://www.bbc.com/news/38261374

“Donald Trump to stay as Apprentice executive producer”

This is one reason why I agree with Michael Moore’s prediction that Trump may quit before he assumes the presidency. At the very least I don’t expect Trump to serve out his entire term. I think he puts more value on his business investments and his income than he does on being the leader of one of the most powerful countries on earth (in many ways China has become more powerful and Putin’s strengthening Russia by increments to return it to its USSR state).

I’ve believed from the start of Trump’s campaign that he will refuse to sell off his holdings or put them all into a blind trust for the duration. I’ve also said no way will Trump accept a pay cut to be president. Trump has yet to show that he has ANY interest in being president. Look at his cabinet nominees. He’s taken a perverse joy in naming people either totally unqualified for the job or people who hate the agency or department they have been named to head. He plans to install people who will reverse decades-long policies and remove protections we’ve come to depend on. What he plans to bring to the federal government is outright anarchy as well as open rebellion and conflict across America as battle lines are drawn between the far right wing and everyone else. And then he’ll step aside and let President Mike Pence deal with it all.

I expect that if all of these nominees are confirmed by the Senate and President Trump or Pence allows them to ride roughshod over the Constitution and attempt to return the USA to the dark ages of the 18th, 19th, and first half of the 20th centuries, it will once again be the overreach of the GOP which will bring them crashing down along with the country. Huge, severe damage will be done that will take decades to reverse–if we have that much time left. That may mean the end of the GOP as we’ve known it unless they permanently fix the electoral system so that they never lose again.

However, the problem remains that while the implosion of the GOP is still imminent, the Democratic Party implosion already happened, thanks to Hillary Clinton and the DNC. The party has never been the same since the coup d’etat in 1963 when JFK was murdered, followed by LBJ pursuing victory in Vietnam to his own political destruction and that of the country. So, while there’s a vacuum on the Left, Trump is about to create one on the Right. Who will step in to fill it is too worrisome to contemplate now, considering the possibilities we presently have to choose from. Trump is no Hitler but Pence’s successor very well could be.
