Hello dear reader(s)!
Did you miss me?
I missed blog-type-thinging a little however, so here I am, post-type=thinging, on Friday! Like I originally intended to do. I might actually schedule time on Fridays to post-type-thing, but more likely I will just continue my random on-again, off-again posting style you all have come to know and detest. Because I’m like, so totally random! Now hand me my pumpkin spice frappuccino!
This morning, I am feeling awful. I have been for a couple of days now. My methods for attempting to feel better have failed miserably, so I miserably lie in bed typing this here post-type-thing wishing I felt belt better.
It’s okay though, I will feel physically better soon enough, however, and then…look out.
For what? I am not exactly sure, but something. Maybe ships at sea? You decide. Just look out. I do not want to usurp your free will by telling you what you need to look out for. In fact, to be completely transparent, even telling you to look out is probably overstepping my bounds. So, I should ask that you please look out if you feel so inclined.
Okay, let’s see…what shall we talk about?
Oh, I know!
How about Mr. Bitter Beer Face, Alleged White Supremacist Terrorist Adam Purinton?
For those of you who don’t know, I live in the Kansas City metro area, of which Olathe is definitely a part. In case you weren’t aware, some fucking idiotic terrorist Navy veteran, allegedly walked into a bar and allegedly shouted, “Get out of my country!” before allegedly shooting two Indian men and a white man trying to stop him because he allegedly thought they were Muslims and that would somehow allegedly justify it to all of the fucking pieces of shit who allegedly think it’s only a tragedy that they weren’t even Muslim.
Now, I only point out he was a Navy veteran, not to generalize veterans, but to combat the notion that because someone wore the uniform, that automatically makes them a good person and worthy of respect. This piece of shit committed an act of domestic terrorism, not too far from where I live. Can we please get over the jingoistic “support out troops and veterans at all costs” brainwashing we have had to endure?
While we are on the subject of brainwashing, let’s talk about Trump voters.
Is America great yet?
How is that working out for you so far? Got that great job yet? I know it’s only been a month, but you all were blaming Obama for things that happened before he even took office. So, why isn’t America great?
I am going to go off an “I told you so!” rant now.
I know someone with a business in legal cannabis. He voted for Trump. I warned him. Over and over again I said that a Trump administration would be against it. He argued and argued. Didn’t believe me one bit. Told me that I was being brainwashed by the mainstream media. He said Trump wouldn’t go after it because of states’ rights. Then Sessions was nominated and confirmed. And yesterday, just as I suspected, in Trump and company’s desire to further entrench the police state, his mouthpiece Spicer announced that we should expect enforcement of federal anti-marijuana laws. Now, I haven’t used cannabis since I lived in Washington because I am paranoid about ending up in a for-profit prison doing slave-labor. That said, I still think it should be legal, even though this won’t really affect me. I really hope he gets to keep his assets. I really hope he isn’t raided and put in prison. If it happens to him, or other Trump voters, well, it’s on them.
Also, for those of you who believe Trump’s falsely inflated crime numbers, just wait until we have a real drug war again with cartels controlling something millions of Americans create a demand for. Good luck stopping that with your little wall.
I also had an argument with someone over the future of Social Security and Medicare prior to the election. I warned that with a Ryan as Speaker, and Trump in the White House, the programs would be drastically cut, to the point of being almost useless. This person told me the programs were too sacred and it would never fly. And yet after the election, the only bill put forth to extend the life of the Social Security Trust Fund that wouldn’t need extending were it not previously raided, is to cut benefits without lifting the payroll tax cap.
Trump and his jackbooted ICE agents (Schutzstaffel) are rounding up illegal immigrants in unheard of numbers. How is that working out for you? Do you feel safer when the Brownshirts come to a hospital to remove a woman with a brain tumor? Does it make you feel safe when the Brownshirts raid a court to detain a woman seeking a restraining order from an abusive partner? How about knowing that the tip came from her alleged abuser? How is that fucking great?
Is it great that the obsolete coal industry is allowed to dump their ash into our fucking drinking water?
Small business owners, are you experiencing record profits with all those barriers to your business taken down, or have those executive orders not benefited you yet?
Is it great that other nations have to debate whether or not to rescind an invitation by their Prime Minister for a State Visit?
Is it great that the severely mentally ill can buy firearms?
Is it great that the Arizona Senate passed a bill allowing for the seizure of assets of protest organizers if those protests should turn violent even if they weren’t planned to be?
Is it great that Steve Bannon said that many of the cabinet nominees were specifically selected to destroy their respective agencies?
So, please, tell me…
Is America Great Again?
Maybe by next Friday…
