The sanctimonious whores who have declared Trump to be "the Chosen one" and "layed hands

on him" while the cameras rolled---can we call them something other than "Christians"?

I have known several GENUINE Christians in my three score and ten---plus---and we elected one to the White House in 1976. You can agree or disagree with their motivation, but few will disagree that people like James Earl Carter are GOOD people who make this world a better place by the way they live and how they treat others. These folks merit the name "Christian".

To call those who claim divine authority for their greed and racism and misogyny and homophobia and cruelty "Christian" is the very definition---IMHO---of blasphemy.

So, call them evangelical entrepreneurs or devout haters or biblical profiteers but, please, do not pay them the compliment of equating them with Jimmy.

This, too, shall pass.

This isn't how things should be.

Because we hear it multiple times a day, it would be easy to slide down into a version of "normal" where listening to broadcasters blithely discussing the latest obvious transparent lie of the supposed POTUS did not shock us. Let's not go there.

It still strikes me as discordant and offensive when I realize that so many of the opinions voiced by "political analysts" are premised on the unprecedented assumption that "of course" what Trump---or one of his offspring---or one of his paid "fluffers"---just said is an outrageous lie! And, then, often with no more outrage or passion than the play-by-play of a chess match, the lie is discussed and "explained"---or justified.

This ain't right, folks.

We know it.

Let's remember it.

Dear panic pollsters: I just sold my cow, so---

(An oldie )---How are Trump and a Jack-O-Lantern alike?

They are orange on the outside, empty on the inside and should be thrown out in the first week of November.

Heads up, Trump supporters! Saturday is the day for you to drop your votes for Trump

in the good old US Mail!

You've seen the long lines of "those people " standing in line in all kinds of weather for HOURS just to vote for "Sleepy Joe". Why should you waste your time among these crowds of mask-wearing social-distancing socialists?

The USPS says it will deliver first class mail within 1 to 3 days after it is mailed. Mail your ballot tomorrow and AT THE LATEST it will be delivered on election day!

If you wait until Tuesday, you'll have to rub shoulders with that sea of unemployed takers. Be smart: drop your ballot into the nearest USPS mailbox tomorrow and be a part of the "Red Wave"!

I was just notified by the USPS that if I

gain five more pounds I'll qualify for my own zipcode!

So, when the Third Lady goes on the road for the campaign, does she take

her own pole or is the venue expected to provide one?
