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?

It won't be necessary to impeach him

He is growing more insane daily. One day, the Secret Service will find him foaming at the mouth while chewing on the edge of a rug. When they try to pull him away, he will bite a few of them. Given the mouth foam, they will all be checked for rabies.

This is how his "presidency" will end. Not in impeachment, but in a straight jacket.

An insane President and a criminal Senate. Go figure.

The Founding Fathers didn't anticipate the fix we're in today. Nor could they have. They wrote a Constitution that was intended to ensure freedom for all, (except for black people and women). But somehow, they missed the possibility of a Trump-like creature, and an entirely corrupt political party, existing simultaneously. None of them could have foreseen this dire threat to the existence of a free, sane democracy.

Some may take issue with me calling Trump insane. Okay. I can understand that. But if he's not insane, then a new definition of the word "insane" is required to explain him, his actions, his mindlessness, his cruelty and his very existence.

And who could possibly have foreseen an entire political party, in total control of the Senate, turning into a criminal entity?

Well here we are.

Destiny/fate/"We The People," or, at least, enough sane voters, have given the Democratic Party partial control of the government. Is it enough to stop the madness? I guess we're going to find out in the not-to-distant future.

But here's the "silver lining." Democrats have elected to congress, an unprecedented number of women, blacks, Latins, Muslims, Native Americans, and out-and-out, unabashed liberals. And this is driving Republicans OUT. OF. THEIR. MOTHERFUCKING. MINDS.

Many of those who were excluded from that original Constitution are now holding positions of power. And it's happened just in time to oppose an insane President and a criminal Senate. Fate? Karma? Or perhaps there is some incomprehensible "intelligence" driving this thing we call the universe.

Still, we are the ones who must deal with a madman "in charge," and a criminal organization protecting him. The Founding Fathers aren't in charge here. The ball is in our court. And history will hold us responsible for the outcome.



The Republican Party is in full suicide mode

They spent two years fearing Trump's voters and they lost the House anyway.

They are now totally silent on the Govt. shutdown. At present tens of thousands of government employees are getting fucked. Within another week or two, millions of non-government employees are going to get fucked with food stamps, tax returns and far, far more.

Yet, Mitch McConnell has pulled his head into his turtle shell and is trying to make believe that everything is just fine.

Nancy Pelosi has sent the Senate an exact duplicate of a bill the Senate passed two weeks ago. It's a bill that will end the shutdown and the insanity. And if Trump vetoes it, there will be enough votes in the Senate to override his veto.

But Mitch won't let it come up for a vote in the Senate. The exact same bill that passed the Senate two weeks ago and he won't let it come up for a vote???

His loyalty to the orange creature in the Oval Office is beyond astounding. So we must ask, what does Trump have on him? Or perhaps, what does Putin have on him? Is there a photo of Mitch screwing a Yak? More likely, it has to do with money. Russian money that has gone to Mitch himself and many in his party.

The criminal organization that calls itself the Republican Party is trying to lay low and hope this whole thing blows over.

It ain't going away, Mitch. It's all going to come out. Maybe Vladimir will offer you, Trump, and his children asylum in Moscow with a guarantee that he won't deport you. Hell, you might as well take it. On second thought, perhaps what the American justice system does to you might not be as bad as how Putin will treat you once he doesn't need you anymore.

You and your entire Republican Party have gone off a cliff. And you don't get any pity from me. All you get is this: You all deserve it, you motherfuckers.

Dominant Trump doesn't want a cabinet. He wants submissives

Yesterday was the latest Dominant/Submissive cabinet meeting.

It wasn't about any topic that mattered. It was just another televised piece of sickness/degradation.

Remember when he did this thing during his first year? The most embarrassing submissive was probably his Chief of Staff at the moment, Reince Prebus, who considered himself "blessed" to be serving his president. (Given a wanton public statement like this, one can only wonder what went on in private.) The rest of the cabinet members, one by one, kissed his orange ass. This was the whole purpose of the meeting. Nothing of substance was discussed.

Hey, Mr. Dominant: Bad news for you. Nancy Pelosi isn't going to kiss your ass. She's not one of your submissives. You'll be lucky if she's barely civil to you.

Hear this. Your days of being totally in charge are over. You can still make your cabinet members kiss your ass, but the House of Representatives is no longer your personal property. And you're about to find that out in a very painful, realistic way. Your about to get a lesson in what government is about. And you're going to hate it.

And in case you missed it, let me say it again. You don't own Nancy Pelosi.

Here's your wall, Donald

And it's closing in on you from all sides. Mueller, the Southern District of NY, and other DOJ districts that Mueller has gotten involved.

Oh, you're going to pardon yourself (and perhaps your family)? Sorry, the NY State Attorney General and the Virginia Attorney General are also involved in investigating your sewer. If they indict you for anything, your pardoning power is worthless.

How does it feel Donald? You've spent your entire life fucking everyone you've come in contact with and corrupting everything you've touched. But you're not going to slime your way out of this. Your Russian and Saudi pals can't help you.

You may be able to hold on for two more years because Republican pricks in the Senate won't carry through on finding you guilty if you're impeached. But you're done. In two more years, you'll be out of office and then indicted on crimes for which the statute of limitations has not run out.

It's questionable if we'll see you in an orange jump suit. But you may well end up wearing an ankle bracelet in Trump Tower or Mar-a-Largo for many years to come. You'll have access to your solid gold toilets, but you won't have access to freedom.

May you live long enough to see yourself universally vilified. You will be no more than a punch line. And you will be viewed as the worst president ever and a total, mean spirited prick.

You wanted a wall. Well,you're going to have it. And it will be isolating you from the rest of humanity.
