We just had an election which  all  our intelligence agencies say was manipulated, that is to say

hacked, by the Russians…right? Hacked in order to place the most criminal of mean, weak-

minded, thin-skinned cowardly sociopaths in the Oval office…right? A person so soullessly and

narcissistically uncaring of anything but himself that he would destroy the good name of this

country, and our global alliances, in order to keep himself in the headlines.  A man hell bent on

scrapping any, and every, decent social program enacted by our government for the last thirty

years. Programs which would benefit any ordinary citizen of this country. A man who is ripping


up environmental regulations in the face of record heat, fires and draught everywhere on the face

of the planet. A man determined to take away our healthcare simply because a black man

authored it. A man who is an out and out racist and misogynist. A man who has given every hate

group license to unleash their bigotry and violence on any immigrant or person of color in this

land. All this is being done by a person who was placed into office with the assistance of Russian

hackers…Russians! Right?

So, there’s this television reality show called Big Brother in which a cross section of some of the

most clinically brain-dead twenty somethings in the country are shut up in a house where

television cameras record their every self-important banality. While there they have these

competitions in which they vie for “power.” “Head of House,” as it were. One of the most recent

competitions was a “hacker” competition. Fine…Right? Except the unseen piped in voice

explaining the rules of the competition did so in a Russian accent! Get it? Huh?

Hacker…Russian…Why not huh? Let’s have some fun with our fucking destruction…right?

The thing is, not a single one of these preening, mirror-checking-every-minute-OMGing-in tears-because-

the-love-of-their-life-who-they-know-for-two-weeks, oafishly insipid idiots has the wherewithal

to comment on how disgraceful this cheap bad joke is. The sheer audacity of this shitty show to

make light of the fact that our country’s democracy has just been stolen from us by Russian

hackers is breathtaking in its obliviousness to what has just been taken from us. To make a stupid

game out of what might very well be the end of a great experiment that began in 1776 is beyond

the pale of good taste…of any taste at all. It is the ne plus ultra of tastelessness – a tastelessness befitting the

grotesque ignoramus that The Kremlin installed in our White House.

Ignorance is the thing that’s gotten us to this place. This show – and the uncaring, unaware, self-

involved morons who are its “stars” – are here; shamelessly displaying the epitome of

this bottomless ignorance!

  1. What a piece ! … and spot on for here too. It’s looking like the Russians were meddling in the EU referendum also. It’s well known that Russia fears a united Europe for obvious reasons.

    • Thanks Al…and to make a reality show game of “hacking” in a RUSSIAN voice is so far beyond oblivious…i am gobsmacked. ..and no doubt more to come engendered by this ignoranus (not a misspelling) and his sad example of what the emptiness of basic humanity can get you. continue…

  2. Well said Tony. The truth always rings true. It seems sleeping and ignorant Americans do not have a clue about the mess the Moron in charge is making.
    I appreciate your wise voice. Stay strong. Belle
