There's a couple of rooms full of President Trump's men and women who are carefully noting every single thing that will discredit every sitting democratic office holder at both the national and the state level and it will be used for something a little more gory that the traditional finish to the badly wounded and winded bull. It's almost as if President Trump was setting the stage, like a matador for instance. His men are vilely slandered by the democrats and the media and while he stands up for them like a soldier he also slams the picador's lance home with his tweets and pronouncements every day.
And the democrats can't resist. It's like all they see is the red cape and never ever the sword.
I haven't truly been paying attention. Here in metroparkcentralis we have a Republican governor, a former attorney general as a matter of fact. A man familiar with the LAW. There is no blanket stay at home law here or in the towns and cities and people pretty much do what they can still do because yes, there have been some concessions to the pandemic and so the restaurants are semi-closed. They have a fairly booming take-out service now which, oddly given this is Ohio, extends even to people phoning and faxing in orders for beer and wine to go. Unheard of!
Yea, Ohio is one of those weird exotic states that treats the sale of spirits as a great matter and of importance to the State and so we have state stores. Guess what else is open and never closed except during normal closing hours? That's right, the State's liquor monopoly will go on since no bootleggers are liable to flourish here. Most of the other stores are open but some are deemed nonessential although exactly why that would matter if the material cause for shutting down any store didn't apply to all stores is beyond me. It would take a fucling idiot to explain the reasoning that says some stores are safe to be in and others are not.
So the libraries and bookstores are closed. I'm only guessing about the bookstores. We haven't been near one in months. I'm not sure if the libraries are closed by government order or an excess of caution because of the models used by the 'experts' to determine where people are vulnerable to the Wuhan Flu or just because they're government workers and I'm willing to bet they still get paid even if they sit at home playing nintendo. As an aside, I have never played nintendo.
At least our people here in The United States of America will be able to spend their valuable time at home brushing up on some of this country's foundational documents. They can start with this one:
The Declaration of IndependenceAs any fool can see, the people on this continent started a war against the most powerful empire in the world with these words of dissent. You might think it would trouble those people currently holding public office that they are so cavalierly in violation of most of them and have taken actions and seized an authority incompatible with the form of government we accepted after we kicked the British Empires butt.
Wait, there's more.
From the same helpful people and website at ushistory.org one can find many laudable documents that carefully proscribe the powers of the government. And yet as you read them here in the twilight of democracy in America it is hard to come to terms with the outrageous evil and incompetence that has decreed that none of them are fit for the study of pupils in our public schools. I doubt they are even mentioned or reviewed or tested in the 'common core fiasco imposed on us by administrators in Washington DC.'
There are however, a few that I think are worth reviewing. I doubt any person under the age of 40 could answer the simple question; What is The Bill of Rights? I doubt one in a hundred could actually write all 10 of them down without peaking. That was a hint. There are 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights. Let's review.
Original Ten Amendments: The Bill of Rights
I think some might agree that the first president and Congress to start totally screwing this noble idea up was Lincoln. He basically went berserk and crazy and Congress let him get away with it. A review of the estimable website at US History link goes straight to Lincoln's disregard for the Constitution. There is a long history since at least Lincoln of shameful contempt for the Constitution by the President, the Congress and the Courts and the courts are really out of control and really need to be reminded just who is running this country and it aint them.
So anyway, back to the point I was making at the outset. President Trump has people (I'm pretty sure they're 'his' people, not those idiots at the RNC), taking note of the hysterical actions, reactions and non-actions of every current democrat in office and I suspect they are going to look with disdain and disfavor on the dismal shower of shite when it becomes time to unload them from the body politic. I suspect his people will be swift in sending full details to the candidates President Trump is most in favor of running against the pathetic and sad incumbents this Fall.
There are enough ignorant, nay stupid idiotic morons out there that they won't care if it is pointed out that their incumbent sentenced them to confinement even as the forces of law and order were turning thousands and thousands of vicious criminals loose on them even as the same miserable scum were ordering all the gun stores to be closed because of a virus. On the coasts and a few other notably stupid places, the people, the sheep, won't care and will still stick with their "man in office".
You know how I can tell this is so? Right here in metroparkcentralis in a house located across the street from 3 public schools and a street where every house not occupied by a physician is occupied by a professor at one of the local universities, my next door neighbor has a BIDEN sign proudly posted in their front yard. How can any sane person think Biden is even remotely credible to be president? It's crazy. I know they hate and despise Trump but he was a businessman and a true friend to everyone as he built and ran a billion dollar business for decades before being voted into office.
What did Biden ever accomplish in his life other than bamboozle the voters and fondle women and children? It's enough to make you sick that people so blinded by hatred would rather vote for him than any other candidate. I can understand hating Trump if you are a pig-blind idiot and moron and what I feel for Biden is not hatred or contempt. It is sadness that a man so pathetically lost to reality and obviously out of control because he's losing his mind is being propped up by his wife and the democratic party as the real evil thugs sit in the various estates and latifundia around the land and around the world and work out who should be his vice president to take over almost immediately on January 30th when they've had time to convince their pet doctors and psychs that Biden is not mentally fit to hold office and must be replaced immediately by THEIR CANDIDATE. Theirs, not yours. Not mine. THEIRS.
Thank you for voting for the evil 25th Amendment.
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
I am keeping a watching brief on the events of the past couple of days and it is more than disturbing that those who believed or thought that General Flynn was guilty continue to believe it in the face of the evidence being squeezed out of the scum at the Justice Department. Despite evidence written by their own hands by the officials who criminally abused an honorable citizen, what I see and read is people are not just turning their eyes from the truth but are jamming their fingers in their ears and screaming to keep themselves or anybody else from hearing the news.
I keep expecting the world to go up in flames. I never really thought it would before now but it's looking more and more likely. Europe has spent the last 5 years turning itself inside out and now we're doing it too. I watched the neocons spend years trying to get us to bristle up against China and for years the incumbent president was so deep in China's pocket he never saw the light of day during his eight years in office and would never dream of imposing any barriers to China's ambitious plans to recreate an empire that would dominate Asia and then Africa and then the Pacific..... Poor neocons.
They probably really thought they had a chance when President Trump took office and unfortunately for them, they're a bunch of prissy know-it-all schoolboy types who never let people like Trump play in their little reindeer games and were sure their man would win office and so maligned the living hell out of the man, his family, his ambitions, his past, everything really. Poor neocons.
I can't wait for the flash of his sword as he starts using it with more deadly purpose now that he has shown Americans the Bullshit and is starting to make people notice that it was not the Federal government that put people in lockdown against their will, that sent heavily armed police to chase down, arrest and drag off to jail people out for a walk on the beach. It was the democrats by and large. I hope they pay for it. And I earnestly hope that every single slimy bastard who was complicit in manufacturing the charges and case against General Flynn and the Mueller investigation goes to jail for decades. That was nothing but a slightly varnished coup d'etat and it came within inches of unseating a sitting President as demonstrated by the House of Representatives who were stupid enough to impeach on a strict party line vote. Kind of like how now everyone affected by the Obama Care Act voted for by the House on a strict party line vote, is coming into effect and people in a pandemic are going to lose their health insurance.
If Republicans fail to sweep them out of office there is indeed something very wrong with the education system in this country and home-schooling should really get a serious look by parents and the rest of the nation because it would be damned hard for the State or the Board of Education to make any decrees about how home-schooling is somehow incompatible with educating children after parents have spent the last 3 months doing it at home because the schools were closed.
It will be curious to see what "bloody shirt" is swept out over the ramparts as they try to blame anyone else for their own policy fallacies. I don't think there's any chance of a Wag The Dog ending to this tale. Nope.
