America is a lie. We keep papering over lies with new lies. Not just Donald Trump. It may just be that he is America’s last and final lie.
I won’t waste our time explaining that, because if you don’t already know it – that is your own personal lie
Who do we think we’re fooling. In the middle of “stay at home orders”, the government gives people a free ride to wherever they want to go.
24 hours a day, government subsidized and supported municipal buses travel around, picking up anonymous strangers. Nobody knows where they have been or what they have been getting into. Nobody knows who they are or where they are going.
Its a rolling Petri dish. One minute a guy is sleeping on a bench, wrapped in a filthy blanket when a bus pulls up and awakens him. So he gets up and takes a seat behind a kid with a skateboard. Social distancing be damned. Some folks have on a mask, and some do not. Some folks have on gloves and some do not. They all grab on to the hold bars, while refusing to hold hands or make eye contact.
This is why I rant against the resident, the governors, and the mayors. They are all complicit in this hoax. Each one commuting constituent homicide rather that risk political suicide. They’re blocking borders, while harvests lay dying in the fields. They’re closing car washes while dispensaries and liquor stores remain open. Until someone steps up and enforces a stay at home order, this thing will linger until it does blow over.
Since we insist on hyphenating everyone, let us look this situation square in the mouth. For the purpose of this punch line, I am an African American. My friend Geoff is a Native American. I know several Jewish Americans and a few Hispanic Americans. My cousin was even married to an Egyptian American.
I said all of that to say this – none of us hyphenated Americans would sacrifice a single soul to serve the political purpose of unseating a Resident of the United States of America. Only a Trump-American would concoct such an evil concept and breath life into it in front of GOD and everybody. Only a Trump-American would be so crude as to claim that a fellow citizen would like to see fellow americans die from the coronavirus, rather than stomach the presence of the spawn of such foolishness through another term.
Shame on you, boy. If your daddy was half a man, he would slap the foul taste of your mouth and a few teeth onto the floor for bringing such disgrace and shame on his name.
During his talk show on October 5, 1995, Limbaugh stated: “There’s nothing good about drug use. We know it. It destroys individuals. It destroys families. Drug use destroys societies. Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.” Limbaugh argued that drug abuse was a choice, not a disease, and that it should be combatted with strict legal consequences.
In October 2003, news outlets reported that Limbaugh was under investigation for illegally obtaining prescription drugs. Limbaugh illegally purchased hundreds of prescription pills per month over a period of several years. He engaged in the practice of “doctor shopping” by visiting different doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions for drugs that would otherwise be illegal. When this was disclosed, Limbaugh checked into a treatment facility. He said, “Over the past several years I have tried to break my dependence on pain pills and, in fact, twice checked myself into medical facilities in an attempt to do so…. I have recently agreed with my physician about the next steps.”
Though doctor shopping was punishable by up to five years in prison under Florida law, charges against Limbaugh were dropped after he sought help and agreed to the prosecutors’ settlement. Limbaugh has said that he became addicted to painkillers as a result of serious back pain.
So let’s summarize. He was not only a Doctor shopping junk addict using opiod pain killers, but he was procuring the drugs for others. Yet instead of going to prison like an honorable man of his word, he copped a plea and his buddies never mentioned it again.
There is no reason that you guys cannot create a leadership caucus NOW.
Decide among yourselves who should be the nominee and announce which cabinet level position each of you will be willing to serve under your chosen leader.
You’re spending your constituencies donations on your petty little ad buys and debate scrimmages, knowing that all donations but one group will be flushed down an empty hole. While the Resident is following your debates around, getting free ads from network media everytime he tweets another dumb idea that he dreams up. If you stop the primaries now and begin the National Election – he will be caught off guard while impeachment related questions continue to be answered and you prosecute the election in chief.
It took us 227 years to arrive at this point in presidential history. Many political battles were fought and won. Many man hours were spent gnashing teeth and ringing hands to arrive at a social-economic balance that America could live with both at home and abroad. We took our time to research and develop tarrifs, taxes, regulations and reforms that seemed most likely to support our safety and goals. Now we are just tearing up treaties and bulldozing ideals at the whim of a single individual. He is a bull in a china store. We are like sheep going to slaughter, not knowing which service or product is likely to be recalled next. Without regulatory oversight and defenses, business has decided to recover expenses and stop testing on lab rats, in favor of real time testing on their customers. At the same time, the bully is building an idealistic and biased court system that is bent on removing tort controls so that when a business is caught testing a dangerous product on the public, they but only apologize, without fear of pesky lawsuits that used to bring them to justice.
I went long, but the danger is real.
