Surely, we are nearing the end of days. To be sure, the killing of young innocents in Texas is another sign that the end is near. Yesterday I watched the news conference where that sociopath governor of Texas ranted about mental health being the reason 19 children and two teachers were gunned down in cold blood. There have mental health issues for humans since the beginning of time but there weren’t always automatic assault weapons that could be purchased by an 18-year-old without any checks. The problem is GUNS!!! There are more guns than people in the United States. The rest of the developed world deems us barbarians of gun violence and they are right. What kind of sick society allows people to purchase weapons of carnage without background checks??
Of course, a major part of the blame for this situation rests squarely with gun manufacturers and their allies in the Republican party that solicit and get money from these purveyors of death. Why in the name of God do individuals need high powered weapons of death? Many of the children killed in Texas couldn’t even be identified without DNA tests because they were so mutilated, We need serious gun control legislation in this country but the Republicans block every attempt. This is a sick country and getting sicker by each passing day. How many more folks will die from the carnage resulting from these weapons of destruction??
It certainly appears that the end of days are upon us. Just watch the news for 10 minutes and you get a lifetime worth of depressing happenings. The situation in Ukraine is in the realm of the surreal. Why in the name of creation are we not going in there will guns blazing to save the brave Ukrainian people? Perhaps if we had a president that was not going senile and having increasing signs of dementia this crisis would quickly come to an end. Russia is a paper tiger. You think Putin will risk war with the US? I think not. As bad as Biden is the Republicans are in a league of their own. Republicans are at the point of avoiding reality and denying they have said things that are on tape!!!! We have a narcissistic billionaire attempting to take over Twitter in an effort to hide the fact that his Tesla cars are pieces of shit. Meanwhile the neo-fascist governor of Florida is picking fights with cartoon characters. Not a good morning friends. End of days for sure.
On this Easter Sunday morning it’s hard to be optimistic about the fate of mankind. Of course, the Russia / Ukraine situation is almost surreal if not for the real suffering of thousands of poor souls. Death and destruction because a tyrant wants power? A familiar theme throughout history but this time the threat of nuclear warfare looms as a possibility. I had believed that Putin wouldn’t resort to this temptation but he is increasingly getting pushed up against a wall and I’m sure he is pissed and even more crazy. Even we avoid a nuclear disaster the US domestic situation is enough to drive me to even more drink!!!
As a former Wall Streeter I know that nothing kills political ambitions more than inflation. Prices, particularly for food, are up sharply. People vote with their pocketbooks. As it stands now Democrats will lose the House and the Senate is up for grabs. Can you really imagine the GOP crazies in the House running Congress??? Therefore on this glorious Easter Sunday morning I wish I good be hopeful, but I can’t. It’s sick out there and getting sicker!!!!
Really, things are getting out of control. Of course, living in the NYC area makes one realize how vital the subways are to the economic life of the city. That’s why I believe the guy they have targeted is the tip of the iceberg. We are living in crazy times. Is the worst yet to come. Easter weekend on tap????
Maybe it’s just me? Maybe only I feel like we are living in very strange times to say the least. We have the president of the greatest nuclear power on earth calling for the political ouster of the leader of another nuclear super power. You would like to believe our fearless leader Joe would choose his words more carefully in an attempt to avoid Word War Three. Then for comic relief we get a movie icon jumping on stage to slap (assault) a personality who supposedly insulted his wife. I reckon this little fabricated episode was viewed as real by many people and had nothing to do with Oscar ratings being in the toilet for years. Need something to spice things up so people will tune in next year. Of course that’s supposing we are alive next year having not perished in a nuclear war prompted by the stupidity of a semi-demented old man!!!!
By any historical standard this November will be a tough go for Democrats. However, the antics of the party are making the upcoming Congress elections a disaster in waiting for the Democrats. Indeed, as a former Wall Street analyst I can attest to the fact that if inflation is trending higher the party in power is in danger and right now prices are moving higher at the fastest pace in 40 years. The pandemic while waning now was not handled well by Biden who declared the whole thing was over in mid-2021 only to be followed by the omicron wave. American are emotionally drained and very unhappy. What do Democrats do? Well for starters they shouldn’t drag out Hillary Clinton to be their spokesperson. This old bag gave a speech citing all the same grievances about the Republicans that didn’t work when she ran a disastrous campaign for president. Indeed, why do the Democrats insist on putting forth these ancient relics to be the face of their party? Biden is bad enough but now the loser Hillary. Get real Democrats or we are going to have the fascist Republicans running Congress in the next two years. Definitely political malpractice.
I’m sick of the media covering Trump. Isn’t there anything more important than reporting on the ravings of a demented mad man? Indeed, the media in my view is the reason we ever got the orange asshole in the first place. By the way in flipping through channels yesterday I caught the ” pre” Trump rally show on Newsmax. It was truly incredible. I lasted about five minutes before I thought my head would explode but stayed long enough to realize these people are seriously deranged. After watching I was truly concerned of whether or not the country can survive as a democracy.
I certainly agree with Biden’s description of Peter Doocy but once again the old man in the White House screws things up by being caught on an open mic. Really If Biden were capable of having a wet dream, he would fuck that up too. That aside I’m terrified about how Biden may mess up the Ukraine situation. After Afghanistan how could there be confidence of his handling the situation? I’m sure Putin is playing a game of chicken with our fearless leader and I for one don’t like this scenario. I’m beginning to think we need divine intervention to get us out of this mess.
Look folks President Biden seems to be a good person but he is unfit to be president. At this point in the country’s history, we need bold confident leadership and that is not what this 79-year-old man offers. Yes, age is a factor. He is obviously challenged on a cognitive level and should be back in Wilmington playing with his dog. His news conference blunder over the Ukraine is really telling. He’s just a confused old geezer who needs to let go of the reins of government. I would much rather take my chances with Kamala. Please Joe, resign for the good of the country
It’s happening right before our eyes. They are now openly acting like fascists. Yesterday in Florida a political activist was arrested for attempting to ask a question at a news conference at which Ron DeSantis was trying to explain away his horrible response to the current surge of COVID in the state. DeSantis has been AWOL for several weeks during the surge. Probably plotting his moves to become the GOP presidential nominee in 2024. He is a clever ivy league educated creep who knows Trump is more likely to be in jail in 2024 than be running for president again. DeSantis has many qualities that the crazy loony base of today’s Republican Party would embrace. He would have a good shot at the nod. Meanwhile he is acting like a fascist dictator in having people led out of his events in handcuffs. Indeed, the images of a black man being handcuffed out of a public event at the behest of Ron’s private security force in chilling and reminiscent of pre-war Nazi Germany.
