State of Disunion

 "If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation."

From Trump's 2019 SOTU Address
Someone hand me my chisel, please.

It took me a couple of days to get up the energy to even comment adequately on the State of the Union speech. It seems that a day doesn't go by in these weird times when one is not rendered speechless at least three times between consciousness and repose. Although the Watergate era is closing in on a half century, receding into the historical mist ever-so-slowly, for those of us who were old enough to understand and remember what was happening at that point in American history, the eras of the Trickster the Donald and are hardly comparable. Nixon was a thug and a thoroughly despicable human being, but - all in all - one never lost that much sleep knowing that the man was within a few feet of the so-called "nuclear football". As unhinged as Dick Nixon became in the final days of his administration (drunkenly talking to the portraits of his dead predecessors, for instance) he had around him enough people who were rational and fairly competent. I don't believe that is the case as far as Donald Trump is concerned. 
The highlight of the State of the Union Speech was when the cameras cut to the women in white. It was a reminder that this country is going through some significant changes, and it would do all of us bloated white guys good to sit back and roll with those inevitable changes. We have got to accept the fact that what is occurring now in America - and around the planet - is as natural as the sun rising in the eastern sky. This is a new morning, guys! The most important national story in the first half of the twenty-first century will be how we deal with this much needed change. So far, I'm sorry to say, we're not off to a particularly good start. This will be - this is - the century of the woman. Deal with this new reality. Aww, c'mon! It won't be so bad, I promise!

There is no way - in Heaven or on earth - that this disgusting president will be residing in the Executive Mansion on New Year's Day 2020. We're just weeks (days???) from seeing members of his immediate family being indicted by Team Mueller. This is as bad as it gets. This is as bad as it's ever been, or ever will be.

Wake the fuck up, folks. Seriously.


On the day of Trump's inauguration, an old friend of mine posted on her Facebook page what a beautiful thing his presidency will be for the nation. My comment was, "Get used to living in a nation in ruins". This was her reply:

"I will get used to living in a nation that's not a laughing stock where we can be proud again and not be slaves to other nations. I will be happy to be self sufficient and have others respect us again. How quickly we forget 911 and how these people went to our schools and were our neighbors then murdered all people in walks of life. My grandparents were immigrants and came to this country with pride and love for America learned the language and worked hard through criticism and being spit on. You Tom Deagan were raised with a silver spoon in your mouth. If you don't like the president or respect him get out. See the rest of the world and how it lives."

Errors of grammar and punctuation notwithstanding, after forty years of friendship, she at least might have learned how to spell my name. With two years of hindsight, this note seems even more ridiculous than it did at the time. People are funny.
"If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation."

Please, hand me my chisel.

Couple things Tom.

The League of Nazi Socialist Woman who supported Hitler's dream of socialist paradise always wore white to public events.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been emphasizing his civil rights record as he considers a 2020 White House bid, once praised notorious segregationist George Wallace and later claimed to have received an award from him.

The majority of those polled, approved President Trump's SOTUS.

Is your prediction of President Trump not winning in 2020 like the other predictions you have made about President Trump not being in office by 2020?

Here's the 2020 Dem platform by the rising socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez :
Open Borders
Legal murder of born human babes
70% tax rate
ICE done away with
Travel by air replaced by train
Non energy efficient homes and buildings torn down
All would be employed by the government, IE: no private sector (USSR?)
And the best of all, farting cows would be made illegal

It is you who needs to "wake the f*ck up".

JTF must be one of the brighter cons. He can spell "Tom".

I don't recall Biden praising Wallace as a "very fine person" during his shameful and clumsy pandering to conservative Southern bigots. Trump said there were very fine people marching with Nazis.

I don't recall Biden joining Trump's racist birther hate movement, either. There's a reason racists love Trump. They correctly see him as one of them.

What kind of semi-conscious zombie would accuse AOC of wanting to "murder born babies"?

Sounds like someone is still in a cult trance and will never wake up.

Like Obama lied about Obamacare, Ocasio-Cortez advisor caught LYING about her ‘Green New Deal’ plan. And all major to date Democrat contenders for their party's presidential nomination are on board with the New Green Deal.

And then there is the KKK Democrat party of Virginia. Plus a rapist thrown in for good measure. What is going on with the Democrat party?

Jeez, Clucky, don't you ever get tired of carrying the water for traitors and racists?

PLease post some links to where the AOC is calling for the things you describe. I'll bet you can't.

You are so ridiculous I'm surprised the orderlies let you near a computer.

Let's have a civil conversation about liberals in black face.
