UFOs explained

I have this on the best authority.

There are countless worlds in our galaxy on which intelligent life has evolved. Most of them are many millennia ahead of us and have overcome the problems of interstellar travel. They are joined in a vast union of civilizations who intermingle in peace and prosperity for all.

Occasionally, a planet produces a somewhat intelligent life form on which evolution goes awry and produces a dangerous, self-destructive species. We are one of those planets.

The UFOs are here to make sure we don't escape and spread whatever disease infects our existence. They mean us no harm. They are simply protecting the sane civilizations with whom we share this galaxy.

Everything Trump touches turns to shit. A short list:

Trump Steaks, Trump Airlines, Trump Vodka, Trump Mortgage, Trump Magazine, Trump University, The New Jersey Generals, Trump Network, Trump Taj Mahal, Trumpís Castle, Trump Plaza Casinos, Trump Plaza Hotel, Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, Trump Entertainment Resorts.

What he fucked up most recently is democracy. And it remains to be seen if it can be fixed, or if he's destroyed our constitution, our country and our freedoms. And if he did, that's on each and every brainless fool who voted for him, or still wears a MAGA hat.

And one more thing. He's one of the dumbest people who ever lived. Which means democracy is so fragile, it can be destroyed by a moron.

Trump and the Saudis are trying to fuck the PGA and American golf

I'm not a golfer, and I may only watch the last day of a major tournament on TV. But it seems that the Saudis, with the help of Trump, have a major golf scam going.

The Saudis have started a new golf organization of sorts called LIV. Phil Mickelson, Greg Norman, and a few other well known golf pros have become involved in their tournaments, (probably because of the huge money prizes). The PGA has banned any pro golfer who plays in LIV tournaments from remaining a member of the PGA, or playing in PGA tournaments.

You know that anything that Trump is involved in is a scam. And it will probably come crashing down, like every other business he has ever been involved in. (He was once involved in trying to establish a new football league called the USFL, the United States Football league, which didn't last long.)

So I guess my bottom line is fuck Trump, fuck the Saudis, (the people who brought us 9/11), and fuck any pro golfer who has anything to do with them.

I know that golf is not one of our major concerns, but it's amazing how Trump never tires of finding new self-enrichment scams, and how many morons will buy into it.

Dear Americans: Joe Biden does not control the price of gas

The Russia/Ukraine war has affected the cost of natural resources. Like it or not, the economy of the world is interconnected.

But Joe Biden can no more control the price of goods/services, than I can click my heels and return to the prices of 1990.

Every time people pay higher prices at the store, they're going to blame Joe Biden.

Every time people pay more at the gas pump, they're going to blame Joe Biden.

Every time people pay more for anything, they're going to blame Joe Biden. And they'll also blame the Democratic Party.

Does anyone really believe that politicians control the economy?

Does anyone really believe that voting for Republicans is going to "put more food on the table?"

Private industry, international incidents, war, and supply and demand, drive what things cost. Politicians love to toss out bullshit at election time, that they're going to make thing better, but that's bullshit. They'd tell us they'll create where and when hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and ice storms will occur if they thought it would get them more votes.

World leaders control much less than we think they do. At this moment, Joe Biden is being blamed for high prices at the gas pump and the supermarket. And many morons actually believe that Joe Biden and the Democratic Party are intentionally fucking them.

So I'll tell you what. If you really believe that, vote for Republicans. They won't change what you pay for gas, or food, or cars, or anything else you buy. But they will destroy our constitution, our laws, our democracy, our country, and all of our freedoms. These are things they do control. And, when you vote Republican, try to understand that they have become infected by an insanity that will fuck you beyond anything you could have imagined any Democrat would ever do to you.

Biden shouldn't go to Saudi Arabia

No American president should ever go to Saudi Arabia, or meet with their murderous crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the murderer of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Not to mention that nineteen of those who attacked us on 9/11 were Saudis. Usama Bin Laden was a Saudi with close ties to the royal family. Does anyone really believe the Saudi powers that be didn't finance 9/11? Or that they had nothing at all to do with it? Or that, at the very least, they knew about it in advance? Give. Me. A. Fucking Break.

So instead of attacking Saudi Arabia, we attacked Iraq. The WMDs were bullshit and Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

Let's face it. It is, and always has been, about oil. Look at what Russia's invasion of Ukraine has done to oil prices. Had we attacked Saudi Arabia, the country that made 9/11 possible, oil would probably be $200 a gallon and we'd have to go back to horses and buggies.

Nonetheless, no American president should ever set foot in Saudi Arabia, or meet with the Royal Family that owns the country, the oil, and everyone who lives there.

President Biden. Please. Stay the fuck away from Prince Mohammid Bin Salman.

(Just read that Biden has put off this trip until July. Gotta' wonder why.)

I've come to hate cowboy hats

Yeah, I know a lot of you love them and I'll take much shit for this post.

As much as I've always loved Hollywood westerns, I've come to view people who wear cowboy hats as the equivalent of someone walking around wearing a tee shirt with a Confederate flag on it. I know that's unfair and does not reflect everyone who chooses to wear one. However, that's the way I feel.

Seeing those guys with big cowboy hats, outside of the school in Uvalde, Texas really pissed me off. Those hats didn't make me think of Alan Ladd in "Shane," or Gary Cooper in "High Noon." They just made me feel like I was looking at some "hero" wannabees with blood on their hands.

Sorry if this post offends you. And your hat.

Imagine cutting a huge fart while speaking at a podium

Imagine* taking a crap on America with a camera and microphone in your face.

Imagine lighting a match to the Constitution and being cheered for it.

Imagine loudly spewing hatred and bigotry countrywide to turn Americans against each other.

Imagine doing a weird little dance at an NRA Convention, after stumbling through reading the names of children murdered in Texas.

We don't have to imagine it. It happened. TFG, yeah, Trump, is a disease that's far more dangerous than Covid.

He's a leech that clings. We're stuck with him. Far too many Republicans love the ignorance, the cruelty, the maliciousness, and the illusion of "superiority" he holds out to them.

But here's the reality of what he's done and is still doing. He's infected America with the the deadly poison that has existed within the Republican Party for decades. He tore their mask off. He pulled back the curtain. He made it plain who and what they are. He kicked open the door to hell.

Those who are not paying attention may soon be wondering how Republicans turned America into a dictatorship.

And if/when that happens, MAGAs who actually are paying attention, will be as happy as pigs in a pit of diarrhea.

Trump was the final straw that broke the elephant's back. He exposed them as people who don't give a shit about democracy or other people. He brought their ignorance and greed out into the open, along with, what so many of his followers call, "Christianity."

I know Joe, Nancy and Chuck are doing everything they can. But somehow, the Republicans/Fascists, always seem to be holding the upper hand. But this time around, all of our freedoms are on the line. We can't afford to lose. If we do, America is over. -- And the clock is running.

*(With apologies to John Lennon for using "Imagine" in this way.)

Texas Governor Abbott returns to the murder scene

President and First Lady Biden visited the site of the horrific murders of children and others in Uvalde, Texas today. While they were there, Governor Abbott, the enabler of the murderer, had the gall to show up. How dare he? How dare Abbott show his face on this hallowed ground. I find it hard to imagine how long it took to scrub the blood off his hands.

Abbott, Texas Republicans, and the entire Republican Party are drowning in the blood of countless children and adults who have been murdered. The reason they died was because Republicans are a wholly owned subsidiary of the NRA, weapons manufacturers, and billionaires who have their own agenda for turning America into a fascist state run by themselves.

But at this moment, it all comes into focus when you see Abbott, showing up with his "thoughts and prayers," in Uvalde, Texas. There just aren't words to cover this outrage. A man who allowed a weapon of war to be put into the hands of an unhinged teenager, knew beyond any doubt what the probable outcome would be, and didn't give a shit. Abbott, and the entire Republican establishment, are the face of evil.

It's past time for all of us to get into the fight for the soul of America.

Yes, these massacres are caused by insanity

The insanity of the Republican Party.

They fear their billionaire donors who profit from everything that kills human beings and our planet.

They fear losing their power and absolutely nothing else matters to them.

They fear imbeciles whose votes they need to keep that power.

They fear people will see through their hypocritical "thoughts and prayers" for human beings who were murdered.

They fear that people will finally "get" that they don't care about the heart-breaking, monstrous murder of children.

Their is nothing sane about what they have done, what they do, and what they will continue to do.

Where will the next massacre take place? Chicago? Seattle? Salt Lake City? Denver? St. Louis? Key West? Who knows?

All we know is that it will happen again. And again. And again. And it will keep happening unless we stop it.

How many more must die? How do we stop it? Somehow, someway, sane leaders, and the sane among us, must get through to all voters, -- rural, urban, black, white, brown, Christian, Mormon, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Shinto, agnostic, atheist, rich, poor, and everyone else, -- that the Republican Party is a death cult. They will destroy everyone and everything that stands in the way of their own wealth, power and their desire for the total "ownership" of humanity.

In reality there aren't that many of them. They may be "big" in terms of political power, but they're small in numbers. (One of George Carlin's most famous lines is: "It's a 'big' club. And you ain't in it." That's a gem of truth you can take to the bank.)

The Republican Party is a threat and a danger to America, and to the world. Their insanity is right up front and out there for everyone to see. Many of them may not actually believe in the craziness being sold by their cult. But it's too late for them to escape and they've got to keep mouthing stupid shit. They're in a prison of their own making.

Notice that the word "love" doesn't appear among any of the terms used to describe Republicans. They are driven by fear, greed, and some would add, evil. But we must recognize that they are more than just domestic enemies. They are enemies of humanity. And they must be stopped from ever again holding power. There is only one predictable ending that would result from their insanity.

Republicans unleashed the insane. The insane are murdering everyone they can.

Republicans don't just have blood on their hands. They are covered with it. And America is drowning in it.

Black people, brown people, Jewish people, children, seniors, and anyone in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn't matter who you are. The Republicans and their gun worshippers have turned America into a killing ground. And it ain't gonna' stop.

How do we put an end to it? The answer is easy. Ban private ownership of guns. How do we do it? We can't. Not until we rid ourselves of the Republican Party.
