Having tolerated as much of the faux ‘debate’ as I could stand without vomiting – a sum total of about 5 minutes, broken up in snippets here & snippets there – one thing is abundantly clear to me, even at a distance 18 months out from the next actual election:
With or without Donald Trump still in office, there will undoubtedly be a monkey in the White House in 2021.
Joe Biden as the Democratic front-runner brings to mind a previous Vice-President-Who-Would-Be-King, Hubert Horatio Humphrey. He was also a former Senator, who rose to be the second in command of the nation… and then lost handily to Richard “I Am Not a Crook” Nixon.
And we all know how THAT worked out… and we all know what’s in office today.
Unfortunately, political hacks are not what the country now needs, in order to rid itself of the biggest swindler ever to adorn the highest office in the land. Nor are untried & untested wannabe’s, unfettered egotists & narcissists and/or bald & blatant opportunists – but from the looks of the current crop that’s all we’re ever gonna be offered.
Neo-Socialists, one and all (whether they’ll admit it or not)… good ole millionaire working stiffs, just like you and me.
Meanwhile, the traitorous Supreme Court continues to undermine our Civil Liberties by officially declaring that Republican gerrymandering is okey-dokey within the 32 State legislatures they presently (permanently?) control… but gee whiz, the feds don’t get to ask if everyone in the country is a citizen when they count the next Census, thanks a lot Justice Roberts! (The centurion in charge of the crucifixion gave Jesus a sop of vinegar, too.)
Never mind that the MilitaryIndustrialCorporateDeathMachine just keeps on a’churning, minute after minute, hour after hour & day after day, killing everything on the planet from top to bottom, inside & out… you gotta pay 5 cents for every brown paper bag you get at the grocery store now, so don’t worry, everything will work out just fine in the end.
Which is exactly what all these status quo Primate Primaries – be they Democratic or be they Republican – are leading up to, folks…
