Seig Heil, Adolf Shitler


This is my first posting on this site in well over a month. To be honest with, the very prospect of The Donald being returned to office in a year is becoming more and more possible with the passing of each wretched day. It's not that he has any hope of winning the popular vote - that's never gonna happen, campers - but the possibility of him getting the most electoral votes is very real. That is why we need to do away with the electoral college. Since the start of this still-young century it has saddled us with one of the worst presidents in American history - and the very worst one. It needs to be abolished. So there.

The very prospect of Trump becoming the first president since Gover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive terms has had me too depressed to concentrate on anything.

If the inmates of Idiot Nation are stupid enough to send this bloviating twit back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue next year (and too many of them are) the United States is finished. America has become infected by Trump's rhetoric and bluster. Two days ago, three Arab college students (two of whom are American citizens) were wounded in an attack in Burlington, Vermont. BURLINGTON FREAKING VERMONT! One of the sweetest, safest, hippest cities I've ever visited in my life. It would have been one thing if this latest act of racist violence had taken place in Shit-For-Brains, Mississippi - but Burlington, Vermont??? It staggers the imagination.

I just turned sixty-five and my health is not what it should be. Unfortunately getting out while the getting is good is not an option for me. I've no other choice than to ride out the next wave of Donnymania. Trump has publicly stated that "when reelected" he has every intention of persecuting his political enemies. He has already called for the execution of General Mark Milley, a man who has dedicated his life in service to his country. If Trump is elected in 2024, there promises to be an explosion of racial violence in the United States, violence a lot worse than the violence that was visited upon the three students in Burlington; at least those kids survived, thank God

One day, the historians and sociologists will try to explain why and how America came to be what bit became in the second and third decades of the twenty-first century. I hope I'm around to read them. I can't figure this stuff out at all.

This news special brings that horrible night back in  a way that I didn't think was possible.
