Somewhere in this, our fair “land of the free,” as we are so fond of bullshitting ourselves, there are pockets of really wealthy people sitting around over cocktails, caviar, and the finest Peruvian flake money can buy, doubled over with laughter at how fucking stupid all the rest of us are.
When George W. Bush got re-elected – or, rather – after they stole it for him the first time – they had an idea, an inkling, of just how much they could get away with. And now, in the dawn of Trumplandia, the Plutocracy is absolutely convinced that there is nothing – no thing – they cannot get away with.
Now, besides all the other bullshit talking points we’ll hear, we will hear all the reasons from all the white haired Republican weasels as to why we should believe that their latest front man Trump won’t remain hands-on in all his business ventures all over the globe. Of course, we are to believe the charade that since his children are running his businesses he, Trump, will not be in charge, or aware of any, and all, deals ongoing.
And, I have an acre of fabulous swamp in Florida I want you to buy.
Now, we see the clown parade of billionaire ass-kissers groveling before the king, eager princelings all. And. nary a one of them with a thought to help anyone but themselves and their own kind. Rich, white, and well-fed. Not only do they not care to help ease life’s path for anyone in the lower and working middle class but, one understands from the backwards ideas that come out of their mouths, that they are dead set on making things even more difficult on that path. I want to puke when I see them. I want spit in their smug vacuous faces. Here’s some of the damage they are planning to inflict…
Kill healthcare? Make grass illegal again? Privatize America’s highways? Tax cuts for the wealthy? A policy to deliver America’s infrastructure to Wall Street and give away our green energy investment funds to billionaires for tax breaks? Steering money away from public schools? Overturn Roe v. Wade?
Are we dupes or what? Are we going to sit still for this?
These cynical, shameless, soulless would-be powdered wig aristocrat scumbags, these thieves in their wealthy gated enclaves all across our country are flipped-out hilarious at the long-odds scam they have pulled off – courtesy of their perfect con artist front man.
Are we now to be ruled overtly by tyrants? Are we now to be mugged in broad daylight by robber barons and their feckless heirs?
Will we stand up to these criminals? Stand against the ideas that will take us reeling drunkenly backwards into a dark past?
The Electoral College must be abolished. It is a tool of this soulless, selfish, aristocratic class and does not reflect the will of We, the people. Citizen’s United (how cynical is that name?) must eventually be overturned.
And, Trump must be impeached!
