Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Our new president wasn’t even inaugurated yet, and the R party was winnowing about their desire, that the D’s should just ignore the last four years, as if it had been full of bunny rabbits, rainbows, and butterflies. As if it wasn’t dominated by a wanna be dictator, fully endorsed by the R House and Senate. The entire four years was one ignominious fiasco after another. Ignoring the constitution, defying court ordered decrees and subpoenas, the silencing of accomplices either through firing them or pardoning them, perfect phone calls one of which resulted in the first impeachment. Let’s not forget kids in cages. Parents deported. Environmental standards tossed by the wayside. Hundreds of thousands dead by incompetence. I could go on and on, but I don’t have the time. Just a never ending shit show by a shit for brains orange idiot, and as I said, whose actions were fully endorsed by the R party.

Nastiness and lies the new rule of the day. Conspiracy theories touted as fact. Acted upon even, as if factual. At the very least, uncontested by any R in office, save for one or two quiet, near meaningless objections by a couple of R’s searching for their long lost, barely recognizable, concsciences.

Oh! I almost forgot the mob invited to DC. Thoroughly agitated, pointed in the right direction, and let loose to do the will of a pathetic orange bastard incapable of admitting he lost fair and square. That mob assaulted an in session Senate, resulting in the deaths of a handful of good people. This act initiated a historical second impeachment of a sitting president. And now, we are all supposed to just play nice?

No! We the people, as well as our elected D’s in office, had better not forget the hell we just went through. The precedents unheard of, now apparently normal policy. Norms shattered into oblivion. The worst possible anyone could imagine a president capable of, exceeded daily. This, was the abysmal presidency we just survived, and just barely at that! We weren’t all that far from losing our Democracy. No we will not forget! We will not pretend it didn’t happen. We will not. We had better not.

I do not disagree with trying to get along, but no way, no how, should the D party bend over backwards to appease the party responsible for the last four years. In fact as far as I’m concerned each and every R that participated in the lie that brought about the attack on the Capitol should be dismissed from office and never allowed to hold office again. I believe this fate should suit the orange one as well. An orange jumpsuit would suit the orange idiot even better.

Can’t we all just get along? Hell no! Not until at least one redeemable act is followed through with by the R party. Just one you say? Snowballs chance in hell of that happening, I say. Irredeemable, incorrigible, unfit for office, they should all be tarred, feathered and run of town! If there was an ounce of shame or honor among them, any and all of them, who enabled the orange one the entire way, because of lack-of-backbone-itis, they’d have resigned by now. Have you seen any resignations from the House or the Senate?

Me either.

Can’t we all just get along? No. And Fuck You for even suggesting it.

If… the Senate, manages to find their long lost spines, and is able to convict our orange idiot on this most recent impeachment, I might be inclined to rethink my postion. But, I know the leopard does not so easily change it’s spots. I rest assured they are incapable of doing the right thing. I sincerely hope the R party goes down in flames, as a result of their own insidious inactions.

They had best, as far as I’m concerned, find within themselves something, hell anything, that could be construed as an action showing themselves considerate, of any desire to get along.

Yet, they have the unmitigated gall to just ask for it freely, as if they were so worthy. My disgust, my outrage, at the abhorrent actions of the R party this last four years, runneth deep. I will not play nice so easily.

Change my mind Republicans. I do not believe you are capable.

A Few Thoughts

Well, happy impeachement month everyone! I can’t think of an orange asshole who deserved it more.

I have to wonder though, after seeing much of the R spectacle in the House, just where we are as a country divided? Even after an all out assault on the Capitol by right wing trumpanzee nutjobs, many of the R representatives are still in full blown deny/obfuscate/distract/misrepresent/falsely equivocate/play the victim/scream radical left!/projection!/stop the steal!/oh my the slippery slope!/ mode. Every time I see screaming R’s who are just screaming to make noise, and not attempt to reconcile anything, I personally get another step away from these idiotic ideologies. We are more then D’s and R’s in this country, we have to be. I subscribe to neither party really, I consider myself an independent.* With that thought, I think no one should wholly subscribe to either tribe, but judge each on their merits and their deeds. If we all would do that, there would be no more political extremism. If we judged on merit and deeds, instead of merely identifying as a R or a D, just cuz yer daddy was one, and yer grandaddy was one, and we listened to both sides, as well as researched what we are hearing, to dig up the facts, we would be a people who no longer vote trumpanzee types to our governmental positions. Because something like that, is what has put us in the fix we are in now. At least as far as our elected representatives.

Alternative facts… This is the sort of horse shit that helps fuel an insurrection. Conspiracy theories spouted as fact. Right wing ideologies spouted as the only way to beat them damn libtards! Right wing propaganda outlets posing as news (Faux News, Newsmax, Talk Radio asshats, as well as social media shit warehouses, you know who they are) constantly pouring fuel on the fire. Why would we be a country so divided? Gee I wonder. I get the whole free speech thing, but a media that leads it’s cultish followers down the lane of “we hate everything they tell us to!” really needs a good looking at. Your right to free speech ends the minute your speech incites hate at any level, or at least it should, IMO. Just like your right to see well on the highway should end when your headlights are so bright they blind everyone you meet. There has to be a point somewhere, a line in the fucking sand, where things that are said and done, do not infringe on our basic wish to exist, unassaulted, by a reckless indifference, to our desire to live a life free of such infringements.

How the hell do we get there? I don’t know. How do we educate 70 million dumbasses who think our government of the last four years has been just fine and dandy? How do we root out and destroy centuries of steeping racism amongst us? How do we convince people who have been brainwashed by alternative fact tactics that they have been lied to? How do we tell them to hold on a minute, and do not just listen to one side of the story, for the truth does often lie in between? How do you take the flour from the cake after it has been baked in? Again, I don’t know.

Another aspect of alternative fact tactics is this, many of the people who exist within its clutches, love subscribing to that crap! They absolutely love what they are hearing! They love being pissed off at unknown faceless libtards that don’t even exist. They don’t need to know who they are, they are fine hating the assumption that they exist. They WANT to be fucking lied to, and manipulated. How do you fix that? Fuck if I know.

All I truly know is I want a better country, a better world, for my kids and grankids, than this. The only way I can think of, that might help us climb out of the hole we are in, is to teach your children well. Teach them to think for themselves. They need to be wiser that the generations among us. This hole we are in will take a great deal of time to climb out of, the future generations are our only hope I think. Our cake in the here and now, has been baked. We can change, if we are of a mind to. But it will take time.

The thing that truly stands in the way though, too many neither know nor care, that they are the predictable result of right wing propaganda, masquerading as legitmate news, as well as social media outlets, manipulated by influences both foreign and domestic.

Y’all stay safe out there.

*While I subscribe to neither party D or R, I will never, as long as I live, vote R again. Not after what has happened during the last few years they have had control. NEVER. Unless by some fate of circumstance, that the current ideologies of both parties, do a complete 180. I am comfortable believing it won’t happen in my lifetime.

Impeach The Bastard!

Let me begin by saying I have never been so damn busy in all my days. I have let the blog go slack, have neglected my friends blogs, but life can do that to you sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚ But I will make time for this, if you have not seen it already, or heard about it, there is a large petition sponsored by Tom Steyer (a bloody billionaire, a real one, unlike tRump) that has already accumulated more than 1.6 million names. I just added my name to the list. I hope you will too.

It is fast, easy, painless, and a course of action any level headed individual would feel good about taking part in. Interested? Go here:
