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, Trump’s 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.
