Interesting Flashback and the New Normal

So I was reading over my blog post from 1/2/20 about the Roaring 20’s.  What struck me first reading it was “Did Karma just say Hold my Beer?”.  Yet, here we are.

The President yesterday suggested a possible treatment for Covid-19 might be to inject disinfectants under the skin or standing in hot sunlight.

The MAGA protestors who want “control over their own bodies” (The Irony is lost on them) think that the Scientist are liars and believe only what Trump and Fox News feeds them.  In short they think this is all a hoax.  As of today, more than 50,000 dead Americans would disagree with the uneducated sheep.

This is how I shop now.  Gloved, Masked and 20 at a time.  Then I get to disinfect my groceries when I get home.  This is all right before I get into the shower and have a good “Silkwood” scrub down.

I believe in science and common sense.  I hope you too!

Sheltering-in-Place Activities

I thought I would have so much more time to read during Shelter-in-Place.  It turns out not so much.  All those projects I was ignoring (like the crap piled on the Dining room table) apparently were taunting me to finished them.  So I’ve been doing those things.

Really, I would prefer to read instead!

I was also doing photo shoots with my action figures, HA HA HA!

COVID-19 and the New Normal

Life will never be the same again.  Anyone who thinks that is a fool.  It was through our own arrogance that the pandemic we saw coming seemingly, to some, has obliterated our lives.  We thought America was too strong and noble to be a victim of this deadly plague sweeping across the globe.  We are foolish and now pay the price for being so.

Stay home as much as you can.  Protect yourselves with upgraded hygiene, masks and other protective measures.  If you have to work or better put,  are allowed to work then take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones.  For all those morons listening to their wealthy pastors telling them they need to come to church.  God….is everywhere.  One does not need to go to a structure for worship.  That little concept was made to ensure God became a business model.

Be safe people.  Don’t be stupid.  If you are stupid then your tombstone should reflect that stupidity when you die.  Only by being less selfish and more responsible can Americans survive this pandemic.  But alas, that has always been a character flaw with Americans and especially our sitting President.  Selflessness is a weakness and responsibility means finding someone to blame 😦  We are all responsible for the health and well being of our community.  My point is…don’t be a dick!

 

The Heat Is On…Again!

I’m seriously not a fan of Summer.  In fact, once my vacation is over I’m like…bring on Halloween!

I did get my hair colored this week.  I went from Granny to Nanny in one Nice ‘n Easy moment, lol.

Since it’s hot as Hell in the ‘Burbs I went with these pictures to illustrate that I’ve turned into the devil from living in “Hot and Humid Hell”.

I can’t wait for vacation!

Trump’s Fourth of July Parade

So the President who dodged the draft over and over wants a military parade to show the world our military prowess.  Why do all of these pathetic men need to show force as though it’s patriotic.  What makes this pPresident particularly stupid is he dodged the draft during the Vietnam war.  He came out publicly and sad he never agreed with the Vietnam war.   Now he wants to show his manciples (my new made up word for his man+disciples).  And now he wants it with more tanks.

This fiasco is going to cost American’s about or more than his golf outings since becoming President.   If you don’t like being compared to Hitler all of the time then STOP acting like Hitler all of the time.  People in cages without due process, hanging out with and praising other despots and attacking the press and anyone one who doesn’t worship you particularly.    These are all ideals held by Hitler for Hitler.  His people blindly worshiped him and looked the other way when he ruined the country and the world.

When will Americans wake up.  Let’s face it he’s a big disappointment.  Seriously though, was the G20 Summit the best day for “Take your daughter to work day”?  She made America look like they thought they were at the Mensa Conference for INBREEDS!

Because of his fragile ego, Trump’s staff had the USS John McCain moved because just the name upset his fragile ego.  How much did that cost American Taxpayers?!?

This parade isn’t about American Patriotism but what Donald Trump wants the world to see.  He wants them to quake in there boots once the behold the spectacle of military glory on Pennsylvania Avenue.  We are living in the age of the Twitter President.  The look at me, look at me, view the world has of the USA.  In the 2020 election,  we need to think less Reality TV show President and more who will do OUR business.  This is OUR Country.  This is BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE America.  It’s time to stand up and say BS to the billionaires who tell you that the rich will share and trickle down their profits to you.  They will NEVER share their wealth, not ever.  They try to screw each other out of their wealth why would you think they would share with you.  Stop believing the lies of the rich.

We don’t need to have a parade of tanks going down Pennsylvania Avenue (that will destroy the road by the way) to make us feel Pride in America.  We need a real leader to look up too.  A leader who we are not ashamed of or embarrassed to represent WE THE PEOPLE.  We need a first family who doesn’t see a profit model in every Executive decision.  It would be nice not to have to pay for grown children to conduct private business on THE PEOPLE’S dime.

Imagine a better America than the one being run by a family of white trash rich people.

 

 

Trumplicans Are Liars and Hate Women

So this week we had many States declare an all out war on Women’s Reproductive Rights by abolishing or limiting Abortion.  Alabama was particularly idiotic.

“Speaking on the Senate floor, Chambliss repeatedly referred to a “window” of time between conception and when a woman knows for certain that she’s pregnant. The state senator said he believed that time was between about seven and 10 days.  “She has to take a pregnancy test, she has to do something to know whether she’s pregnant or not,” he said.
“You can’t know that immediately, it takes some time for all those chromosomes and all that.”
It really does help if you understand how and where babies come from before you create legislation regarding their existence.  So in Alabama you can go to a doctor in the first 7-10 days to have an abortion for an embryo that may or may not exist.  How Schrödinger’s Cat of Mr. Chambliss.  Do you have a headache yet.  Well it gets better…
In Alabama’s new law embryos created in a fertility clinic are not included.  As explained by Mr. Chambliss…they aren’t in a woman’s body.  But it’s not a war on women’s right or control of their bodies via “The Handmaid’s Tale”.  Also not included is dispensation for cases of RAPE or INCEST.   I would be shocked by all of the above but Alabama is always in the bottom of the barrel for Education, Health Status, and oh just everything.  It’s a place where they constantly tell people “Donald Trump is President Get Over it!” but can’t seem to get over the fact that The Civil War is over…they lost and blacks and women have rights even if THEY don’t think so.

The Face of Apathy

So upon further reading I came across this little ditty from Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, she acknowledge that the law is severe but feels that’s okay because it isn’t enforceable.  Hey Kay, did you get that little gem from Mr. Grassley of Iowa?  He said don’t worry about Obamacare/pre-existing conditions because it’s not going away.  All the while Mr. Grassley has been working ferociously behind the scenes to strip ACA clean to the bone with NO replacement to help terrified Americans.   And while Ms. Ivey really believes that no one will enforce her backward destruction of Women’s Rights it has been the mission of every White Male Politician stumping for Jesus to subjugate the women of our Country…one law at a time.  She is simply obtuse!
In Alabama, a rapist will get 5 to 15 years for destroying a woman and possible impregnating her.  The woman who chooses an abortion will get 99 years if  it is an in-State abortion and 10 years if she has it in another state and comes back.  Which means you now live in NAZI territory where neighbors inform on other neighbors.  Don’t think it could happen?  The Trump Administration is holding foreign nationals in sub-par for profit detention centers/prisons with NO due process.  That’s what my Father fought against in Europe in WWII.
The Trumplicans believe the biggest threat to America is educated women.  It’s time for a Woman President.  Joe Biden is just another creepy white guy with a great smile.  Trump is man-child who can’t read and sets America’s policy on Twitter while taking his morning dump.
And for all those people like Mike Pence who want us all to live by the Christian Values of the Evangelical Bible, that’s the same as Sharia law.  You are too stupid and controlled to know the difference.  Also, I’m not that kind of Christian and you aren’t either you lobster loving, polyester wearing, adulterous loving (Trump) morons!
End of diatribe.
Now go and do something good for the world.  Be the person who understands the difference between right and wrong and be kind to others like no one is watching.

Republican Version of the Carter Administration

DIATRIBE

So Mr. Trump is mad again.  This time at China and in his “SELF PROCLAIMED” title of Tariff Man has decide to change the dialogue from The Mueller Report to destroying the financial status of the United States.  You know because he’s a super awesome, stable genius business guru.  Spoiler Alert:  He is not Stable, A Genius or A Good Businessman.

Jimmy Carter was a man elected in a time of resistance to government too.  He had limited expertise being the Governor of Georgia.  People liked him because he was a farmer/governor who worked outside the Beltway.  It’s was what America wanted.  Someone different, a peoples candidate to lead the masses.  It was economically a disaster.  The Beltway Elite in Washington froze him out.  The Recession crippled our country as well as the oil embargo because of the regime change in Iran.  Things didn’t go well for President Carter.  Mr. Reagan sold everyone a bill of goods too.  He saved us from the recession.  He did it by robbing from Social Security.  The grand idea of a little pain in the future to save us today.  That wasn’t what happened.

Mr. Trump thinks the Government just prints money and can pay for all of his missteps.  It can’t do it for very much longer.  We are $22 trillion dollars in debt right now.  Some from ACA (which saved millions of lives), The Recession of 2008 (Banks really are not too big to Fail), a 2 front war in the Middle East (3 if you count Syria) and my favorite a $1.5 trillion dollar tax windfall for all the wealthy in our country.  To sum up…very little money coming….tremendous amounts of debt has money going out!

Mr. Trump’s favorite thing to do is create financial discourse to change the dialogue.  Right now the Stock Market is showing a loss of 584 pts. because of Mr. Trump’s awesomeness in business.  He clearly doesn’t understand how the stock market works, or farming’s relationship to the stock market or that rage tweeting as World Leader is the dumbest of things a World Leader can do.  But here we are.  How anyone with a thinking brain can seriously support this tart who doesn’t know anything about anything is beyond me.

2020 can’t come fast enough.  Perhaps we will see a new enlightenment in America.  One were anger, rage, stupidity and violence isn’t the mainstay of everyday.  When all is said and done and Mr. Trump doesn’t get to stay beyond his 4 or 8 years the truth will be laid bare for the world to see.  He won’t have the power to stop it.  Until then, I pray that Mr. Trump’s destruction of America doesn’t get that chance to bloom.

Be kind out there.

Blooming

We have this bush in our backyard and it’s blooming for the first time since we moved in.  It’s rather beautiful.

I’m so excited!!!

Remember to be Kind today.


THE DIATRIBE

So the President and the Trumplicans in the House and Senate are all into hiding what the Mueller Report shows.  The reality of this situation is…if the President is exonerated as he’s tweeted over and over again and that there was “No Collusion” then he would just release the redacted report to the press and the citizenry.  The reality is more to the point it probably doesn’t.  It probably shows that the President and his staff and family acted in a less than moral/legal way during and after the election of 2016.  He’s ashamed of what the MR reveals about him as a person and a leader.  Like we didn’t know he was the SHADIEST MAN IN AMERICA.  Wealth does not bring intelligence.  It gives you avenues to the best education but not intelligence per se.

The same goes with his tax returns.  He doesn’t want them released because there will be connections with Russian Businesses and such.  The other side and probably the real reason he doesn’t want them to be release is his pride.  He isn’t and was never a good businessman.  If you don’t read, say, contracts well you are going to get hosed.  Also, it would reveal that he defaulted on loans, lots of them.  He’s a man of no Character or self rebuke.  He thinks he’s a genius in all there is in the Universe.  He’s not really.  Mr. Trump has and will always be a very, very small man with a very, very high opinion of himself.  The fact he refers to himself in the third person often is just a showcase of all that is Donald J. Trump.

The scary part is that his base follow him like a Cult Leader with Koolaid.  They rally like Nazi’s with no irony to be found.   They hug the flag one minute then walk around in pants that are the flag.   They are a weird angry bunch.

Let us keep in perspective what’s happened over the last few weeks.  North Korea and Russia are thumbing their noses at Trump/America.  Trump has ratcheted up his trade war with our largest trade partner China, aggressive weather fueled by Climate Change is decimating Middle America and there were several shootings by mentally ill, angry Domestic Terrorists against places of Worship and Schools.  Yet we do nothing to stop it.  Thoughts and Prayers for it all.

To Mr. Trump…grow up you sad pathetic easily manipulated fool.  Everyone manipulates you because you have no opinions of your own.  You can’t read and you lack any character that would tell you what is right and what is wrong.  Be the man you’ve told everyone you believe you are and stop lying about everything!
