A man who walks onto the stage and hugs a flag is pretty fucked up

But what's more fucked up is the audience at CPAC that stood, and applauded and cheered him.

Someone really needs to explain to me the difference between that crowd, and those who cheered and adored Hitler during his torch lit rallies where the highlight was burning books.

This is frightening. And anyone who doesn't see it and recognize it for a fascist rally is a fool.

This is how it starts. This is how it begins. It doesn't take a majority. It just takes a minority of fanatics.

And the next thing you know, your country is gone. And whenever you go out, some uniformed thug will stop you and say "Papers please."

Am I being an alarmist? Watch the video of that CPAC rally where the orange madman spoke for two hours and was cheered from moment to moment. Then tell me what country you think you're living in.

Republicans: Fuck truth. We must protect our Fuhrer

Republican questioning during today's hearings with Cohen, were disgusting.

What was going on was obvious. Democrats were asking questions to reveal the truth. Republicans were asking questions that avoided any references to Trump. All of their questions were intended to show that Cohen was a swine.

Here's the reality. The Republicans on this committee, along with all the other Republicans, are going to protect their orange Fuher till the bitter end.

This brings to mind the Nuremberg Trials where the top echelons of Germans were put on trial for their crimes.

Many say this isn't the same thing. Really? Kidnapping children at the Mexican border seems like a crime against humanity to me. The fact that people have died in the custody of ICE seems like crimes to me.

Are we talking about millions of deaths? No. But when you let that first death go without comment, millions could follow.

Today, the Republican Party once again showed us who they are.

Political Assassination should be a major story

But it seems that it's a page one or two story that got covered for a day or two.

No, No one tried to assassinate the president.

But some nut was building up an arsenal to assassinate all of the presidenr's foes.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, AOC, and most of the people on MSNBC and CNN were on the list of this crazy.

I won't give you his name. He wanted fame, so let's deny it to him.

He built up an arsenal. He Had a list, He'd researched their protection on Google. And he wanted to be one of the greatest murderer in American history..

Is there any sane human being who doesn't believe that this man's insanity is tied to Donald Trump's words and hatred?

C'mon, people. Wake the fuck up. There are a lot of crazy people in this world. And Trump has inspired a lot of them to go after his enemies.

Can I prove it? No. But think about it and see where it leads you. And let me know what you decide.

Stepping in shit is a mistake. Stepping in it on purpose is crazy.

No one really knows how many Americans voted for Trump. For some reason, they didn't know shit when they saw it, so they voted for him. But given Russian interference, machines that switched votes, "lost" votes, and a variety of other tactics used to fuck up elections, was he actually elected?

Now, we're headed toward another presidential election. And, assuming he's still in office, he's planning to run again.

Stepping in shit by accident is one thing. Stepping in shit intentionally is inexplicable.

There are a lot of fools who I just don't understand. They've gotten fucked over for the past two plus years, yet, they just can't wait to vote again to get fucked over some more: -- On taxes, on benefits due them, on healthcare, and on countless public services.

I know that bigotry plays a huge role here. I know that ignorance of reality is a part of it. And I know that a lot of it is just plain stupidity.

It seems we've reached a point where the obituary of America may read: This great Democracy was brought down by greed, hate, and ignorance. Many citizens saw the shit and waded into it.

"Wait, wait. Hold it for a minute. I have to answer this."

So you're speaking with someone face-to-face and your phone rings.

You whip it out, glance at it, say, "Oh, I've gotta' get this." You pick it up and whoever you were speaking with is left waiting with their thumb up their ass.

And to one degree or another, you have one pissed off, (or at least annoyed), friend, acquaintance or whoever.

If that's been done to you, try doing what I do. If you're speaking with someone, face-to- face and they answer their phone, walk away when they pick up. If you're speaking with them on a land line, hang up, walk away, and don't worry about it.

Why does some random phone call get priority over you? In effect, when you're speaking with someone, their phone rings, and they tell you to "Hold on a minute," what they're really saying is "I must answer this call that may or may not be more important than you."

If there has ever been a bigger "Fuck You" that existed before smart phones existed, tell me about it. Because that's what smart phones have done to society. They've made "whoever" more important than you while you're having a conversation with someone. They've made you a second class citizen. They've made you a slave to the person you're speaking whose phone suddenly rings and they consider that answering it, is more important than speaking with you.

If I'm speaking with someone and my phone rings in my pocket, I ignore it. The phone has captured the number and I will call back. Perhaps it was a call in which I was going to be informed that a meteor was going to destroy Earth in five minutes. Well, if I had answered the call, it really wouldn't have made much difference.

Do yourself a favor. Be polite and put whatever conversation you're having with someone at the head of the line. If you're phone rings, just say, "I'll get it later," and continue your conversation. Don't let a ring in your pocket control you. As far as I know, there's no law (yet) that says you have to drop everything you're doing and answer it.

And recognize the fact that if you stop whatever you're doing to answer a ring, Pavlov's dogs were trained to answer a bell, no matter what, in order to get food.

So try this out for a while. When you're speaking with someone, or you're even in the middle of making yourself an omelet, let the fucking thing ring. The world won't end because you didn't grab it immediately. And 99.9% of the time, it won't matter that you didn't drop everything to immediately answer a bell from whoever.

We need to protect our candidate against the tidal wave of GOP attacks

Whoever our candidate for president turns out to be, the Republican propaganda/lie/smear machine will go into overdrive. She/He will be accused of eating babies. She/He will be accused of fucking a yak. He/She will be accused of sexual harassment and perhaps rape. He/She will be accused of being an illegal immigrant from wherever. She/He will be accused of being a horrible, perverted, dangerous threat to America.

This is what the right wing propaganda machine does. This is who they are. And make no mistake about it. They are an arm of the Republican Party. And all of that shit mentioned above will be believed by millions of fools, know nothings, and those who just don't pay attention.

We know this is coming during the 2020 presidential race. But we can't wait until then to fight it.

Our counter attack against Republican shit flinging must start now. We must make people aware of what Republicans do to smear their opponents. We must make people aware that they are going to be drowned in Republican lies. We must make Americans aware that we have two parties: Democrats who believe in our freedoms; and Republicans who have spent the last 40 years fucking us and trying to destroy our democracy and our constitution.

Talk, write, reply to any shit thrown at you, march, and do everything possible to make your fellow citizens aware that the Republican party doesn't care whether they live or die. Make them understand that Republicans will fuck up their Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran's benefits, and do everything possible to line their own pockets with funds that should be going to the well being of the American people.

So, about that low-keyed, quiet guy who could nail down the presidency

No Republican can win the presidency without winning Ohio. It's become a purple state. But Sherrod Brown, Democratic Senator of Ohio, has been winning elections there since 2006.

He's liberal, he's smart, and when he speaks, everyone can understand his positions, his beliefs, his values, and his dedication to healing America after a couple of years of Trump madness, and a few decades of Republican insanity.

In 2020, I will vote for any Democrat who is nominated. I believe that virtually any Democratic candidate can beat the orange creature. Or, if the creature is gone, that any Dem can beat the malicious, hollow man named Mike Pence.

Right now, we have enough Dems running for president to jam a Manhattan subway car. Many will drop out along the way. And we will eventually end up with a front runner and then a candidate.

Put the name Sherrod Brown in the back of your mind. It's possible to be low-keyed, soft-spoken, yet be endowed with greatness. No one can predict what lies ahead. But Brown might just be the one to put America back onto the tracks from which we've fallen.

Trump's worst crime -Kidnapping kids at the border.

Thousands of children, from babies to teens, have been separated from their families at the border.

Many may never see their parents for years. And many others may never see their families again.

Trump's inhumanity has caused this despicable crime at the border. Would-be Latin immigrants have been treated like criminals and had their children stolen from them. No records have been kept to help reunite families.

If our next president is a Democrat, she/he will have to deal with this horror. They will have to try to match thousands of children with parents who may have already been deported.

Trump, and every thug that's enabled him, must be made to pay for this horrible crime against humanity. Yes, -- Crime against humanity.

Imagine your child being ripped away from you and sent to who knows where. Imagine a child losing his mother/father/caretaker being torn away from their loved one and ending up in some American Republican hell. -- This is a crime against humanity. This is a crime against individual human beings who have lost their children or their mothers/fathers, and don't know what America is going to do them next.

Why should anyone doubt that Republicans don't give a shit about the lives of Latin refugees. They don't care if they live or die, or if they ever see their children again.

What kind of people would tolerate this? In most civilized countries, the "great leader" would be dragged from office and then brought to justice. I now hesitate to call America a "civilized" country. After all, what civilization would have put an incompetent, ignorant, mentally challenged fool in charge? What civilized country would look the other way during a mass kidnapping?
