Comments on the joys and foibles of democracy, and the increasing lack of it

A Heartfelt Wish

We just can’t win, I guess. Our previous president was articulate, personable – but was a consummate liar, in word and deed, about so many important things. Our current president can barely express what he means, knows very little about most things [except how to screw people out of money] and will probably go down in the annals of history as the nonpareil deceiver of all those who have so far held the office.

If I were a believer, I’d spend my days and evenings in prayer on my knees or even prostrate, begging god or the gods to deliver us from this scourge and the nefarious actions he and his minions will deal out to all of us, here and overseas. But I’m not such a believer. Yet I do trust in karma, and so I accept that this wretch is somehow payback to our nation for allowing our government to do all the wicked things it has done here and around the world for the last 225 years and counting. With MLK, Jr. I recognize that our government has been, for quite a while, the greatest purveyor of violence and mayhem in the world.

Perhaps we’ll finally come to our senses, rise up, and cast off all the greedy, hateful, and bloodthirsty bastards. Hoping against hope, I think love in thought, word and deed will bring us through this dark night of the soul.

Mr. Trump’s first 100 days

It feels like eons
ten days more till a hundred
of the Con Man’s Rule.

O’Reilly Factor –
one clueless troglodyte down,
one orange one to go…

apocalypse, or the renewed satanic order

apparent by now:
Trump and his pals will make of us
gifts to great Mammon

Another myth bites the dust…

The Great Dealmaker
couldn’t get his own party
to pass a bill: SAD.

mantra for these times

oh, so sad… so sad
orange blather – oh, so sad.
so sad. oh, so sad.

On Mr. Trump’s joint-session Speech, 02/28/17 or Propaganda 101

the same warmed up mush
salted by tears for a SEAL,
who shouldn’t have died,
but The Donald craved showing
the world who’s the boss
