Still More Craziness

"Life has a way of confusing us
Mending and bruising us
Drink l'chayim to life!"
From Fiddler On The Roof
"Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives [sic] voices. We will strongly regulate or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen....Just like we can't let large scale Mail-in Ballots take root in our Country."
The Common-Pervert-in-Chief, 27 May 2020
Concentrate very carefully on the quote above. The disgusting piece-of-shit that a significant minority of the American people were naïve enough to elect to the presidency four years ago believes that he possesses the power to shut down internet sites like Facebook or Snap Chat - or The Rant - simply because he doesn't dig the message that is being conveyed. Don't think he's not going to at least seriously ponder the possibility of plunging this already-fragile democracy into utter darkness. And while we're at it, take very seriously a scenario of this unhinged nincompoop refusing to vacate 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue when his term expires at 12 Noon on January 20, 2021. Take this to the bank, campers: at the very least he's thinking about it. And so it goes. Hi ho.

In the last twenty-four hours the United States has reached the milestone number of 100,000 people dead from the COVID-19 pandemic. That's more human beings than have laid down their lives for this country in every conflict going back to 1956, when the first soldier died in Viet Nam - two years before I was born. This nation and South Korea became aware of the coronavirus outbreak on the very same day in early January of this year. South Korea immediately sprang into action, alerted its people to the danger and put their scientists to work on the problem. Last I checked about two days ago, the total number of dead in that country is 268. Think about that for a minute.

In America on the other hand, Donald Trump decided that the best thing was not to spook the stock market. At first he purposefully ignored the problem against the counsel of more-than-one expert who cautioned him on the danger posed to the people; and the American people - to their utter detriment and peril - cheerfully went about their business with nary a care in the world. Then, when it was obvious to those of us smart enough to pay attention that the virus was working its way through the country, he denied the danger, calling it a Democratic "hoax". Look where we are today as a result. It's safe to say that facemasks, hand sanitizer, social distancing and protective gloves will be with us for the foreseeable future. Now would not be a good time to invest in internet dating sites. Just a thought.

The other day during a news event at the White House, Trump criticized a reporter for wearing face mask, calling him "politically correct". The half-witted little maniac even had the gal to criticize Joe Biden for wearing a mask during Memorial Day ceremonies this past weekend. Because this monumental lamebrain feels that personal protective gear are somehow unmanly, the majority of the lamebrains out there who follow him unquestioningly are libel to follow his example. That is why, in the shit-for-brains regions of the country, the death rates continue to rise daily at an alarming rate. The only silver lining behind this extremely dark cloud is that, once this nightmare is finally - mercifully - behind us, America's collective IQ will be just a tad higher. I needed to leave you today on a positive note. That's the best I can do. Sorry.

Come heck or high water, this president will be out of the White House in just a little under eight months. If he decides to leave voluntarily, fine. If he refuses, send in the fucking Army.

Enjoy this lovely spring day, kiddies!
