" Man becomes, as it were, the sex organs of the machine world, as the bee of the plant world, enabling it to fecundate and evolve ever new forms." -- Marshall McLuhan

"Yours Truly,
"A hard working Middle Class Law Abiding Citizen who is sick of getting fucked in the ass and would rather be grabbed by the pussy." -- Jennifer Crumbley's 11-11-2016 letter to Trump



When I read Jennifer Crumbley's blog post -- an open letter to Donald Trump -- I was immediately reminded of the iMarshall McLuhan quote. This led to a para-crisis: how to communicate the connections in my mind, without creating anything that could focus on republicans-as-sexual-entities, rather than considering their relationship to the machine? For Jennifer's quote alone poses the risk of a disgusting mental image.

Thus, this may be hard. As the Supreme Court wades into Roe, for example, I remember back in the Reagan era, when "moral majority" leader Jerry Falwell spoke against abortion, because he recognized pregnancy as "God's punishment" for women enjoying sex. No doubt his wife was not at risk of orgasm, leading me to conclude that the pregnancy that reproduced Jerry Junior was to provide divine evidence of the normalcy of republican christian sexuality. For what else could it possibly be?

Surely an accurate model of the republican machine includes numerous sub-groups, such as the old testical christian right, the militia-minded, and those who watched Honey Boo Boo weekly. The HBB fans could not only relate to Honey, but are frequently related to her, as they have long occupied a small and shallow gene pool. Further, it is te advances in instant communications that has resulted in an outbreak of what social scientists recognize as the "Trump virus."

To fully explore this topic, and understand the ways in which the Trump virus spreads, we shall use the model of the human male penis. Indeed, many of the male species of republicans appear incapable of following the ancient proverb "think with the big head, not the little one." Perhaps if we said "tiny head"? Or might it be too late?

There are some republicans who we might accurately refer to as the republican glans. As such, we can appreciate how individuals such as Josh Hawley, MTG, Paul Gosar, and Lauren Boebert are attempting to stick the dickhead to democracy in such an unpleasant way.

Another group of soft pink tissue, known as the prepuce, are the republicans in various media positions. This includes, but is in no manner limited to, Sean Hannity, Alex Jones, Tucker Carlson, and Steve Bannon. They are most closely associated with the spew of outright lies and conspiracy theories that cause the grass roots -- or corpus cavernosum, to become erect with excitement. Indeed, the grass roots are known for their rigid thinking.

This causes the scrotum, an old and wrinkled sack we can accurately call Trump due to it's relatively sparse hair, to tighten with glee. Then, the bb-sized nuts, known as the Stones, to spasm, thus releasing a toxic virus that sticks to its victims' brains. The resulting infection causes an incapacity to think in logical or rational manners. The sufferer instead shudders in perverse joy when exposed to those lies and conspiracy theories discussed earlier.

It would seem essential, at least in my humble opinion, to fully understand that these individuals poisoned by the Trump virus are not mere "conspiracy theorists." Indeed, the House Committee has documented a theory of conspiracy regarding the January 6 insuurection's point of ejaculated out of that old, dehydrated foreskin Donald Trump. This is essential for understanding if they seek to put in place a prophylactic capable of stopping another criminal attack on our institutions.

The Trump virus poses a very real threat to our country. It also threatens us as individuals. Many of us have been exposed to the virus, and not just in public settings. Masks alnoe do not offer adequate protection -- indeed, the mere sight of masks seems to energize this viral threat. In my next essay, I plan to focus on how we can achieve a herd immunity that protects us from this threat.

Sincerely,
H2O Man

I agree. Trump was and remains a marketer. Doesn't matter he delivered nothing for working people, except judges for the Evangelical crowd. He delivered for Wall Street too.

I will never see him as anything but a threat ever since January 6, 2021. Defeating him at the ballot box was not enough because he understood the beast in people, they love him....he validates them still.



You're a wonderful writer, thank you.

Even among the republicans I know, none were okay with January 6. But -- and this is speculation on my part -- probably 50% or more would support Trump in 2024.


And thank you for your kind words ...... the first draft of this, authored in my mind before sitting down to type this version up, was my tribute to Lenny Bruce. But it could have inflicted visuals that people could have trouble forgetting. Couldn't risk that.

speaking about the machine. I purposely refrained from even hinting at sexual imagery. Perhaps you comments say more about you than my essay! (grin)

I recently watched some film of and about Lenny Bruce. I liked Norman Mailbox's saying that Bruce and Abbie Hoffman served as social chimney sweeps -- a dirty job that allows people to inhale clean air. I always wanted a dirty job, you know.

Part Two was in the works before I conceived of. I should finish it soon.

to my 4th grade sweetheart, who recognizes it as the same type of attempts at humor I've always done. I told her that, although my children tell me to never try to tell a joke, because I'm not funny, that I thought this was a good essay. But few here seem to have agreed. She said it might be penis envy. Thus, I blame her for my off-beat humor.

And artistry. Second time to make sure I got it. This last one to examine the subtlety, humor if you will.

You demand an enlightened humor with this. I suspect that there are hidden doors that the casual reader will miss. i infer some are unintended and just part of a let it go, mien.

Watching humanity unfold is the highest study of art and physics. Physics rules everything. Art explains it from our attempts to describe it.

Your incorporation of art and physics worked for me.

My comment, balsy, was the most succinct I could be. Enjoy your studies.

to fit in as many hidden references as I possibly could. There's nearly as many of them as there are open references. I had to edit a few out that I thought to be on the wrong side of the lines of human decency. I could not risk treating republicans decently, after all.

I'm sure you know the variety of product, perhaps not the spelling unless it's a typo.


Literal translation from the Spanish: "sin" is "without" and "semilla" is "seed(s) " and pronounced "seen-sem-MEE-yah".

"Seedless", but am sure everybody knows everything in the preceding sentence. Now,

My father was one of 14 siblings. They spelled our last name at least five different ways -- including if there is one or two l's in it, same with t's, or if the a is included.

I just edited the title, out of respect for you. That's something I rarely do, in large part because it would take too much time to correct every spellin' error I make. I'm fucking Irish, you know! Spelling is always subject to a variety of excuses.

for a couple of days and had restrained myself, but after today's corrections of my stuff I decided to lash out as it were!

And, yes, surnames and other words have variable spellings - e.g., Dick CHENEY and his family and neighbors pronounced theirs as "chee-nee" as Tweety told us..

That said, I'm sure the Spanish language has words with different spellings, yet in mainstream usage - say, in the dictionary - there are mostly standard versions, with variations noted perhaps.

*** Not to continue my nitpicking, but your correction of the double-L is fine, but there is no "i" as in "-ia" at the end. Please don't bother with it on my account. I'm just relieved I didn't poke a hornet's nest that much! So the respect, here, is reciprocal!

I'm just as ticked when I'm patronized/condescended-to when they don't give me the benefit of the doubt that I *do* know better and might have had a typo.
