Haven’t posted in awhile. Just too much going on. One gets dizzy from the gyrations of our political soap opera. Surely we are in unchartered waters. The foundations of this nation are crumbling. The big questions is can our democracy be salvaged?
The much anticipated Uber IPO turned out to be a bust. Touted as the IPO of the year the shares closed down more than 7% from their offering price. To be sure, I wasn’t surprised. Perhaps after working more than 30 years on the Street some semblance of common sense surfaced in my old brain. Guess I’m an believer in actual fundamentals for stock evaluation. For instance earnings are a good thing and Uber has nothing but losses. Assets are also a good thing. Uber as none. Indeed, the stock market in general mystifies this senior citizen by maintaining a loft level of valuation given the horrible prospects for the economy. Cash should be king right now and maybe the reception of the Uber IPO will give investors ample warning.
By this time you would have to be brain dead not to know that Donald Dump is a traitor who is beholden to a hostile foreign power. Now we know that Nancy Pelosi is also a traitor. By refusing to immediately bring impeachment articles before the House she is a traitor to the constitution of the United States. She reckons it would be politically unwise to initiate impeachment. Perhaps she is right but what about the “moral” issue? If anyone in modern memory deserves to be impeached it’s Dump. There can be no denying that!!! Pelosi has to go. Resign and check into a clinic for a much needed additional face lift!!!
On this Easter Sunday morning I could write about my utter disgust on the mere mention of the name of Donald Trump (aka Dump). Indeed I could rant for countless keystrokes about how he has probably ruined this country forever. His shit stain of a presidency will echo through the ages as the low point in the history of the USA. However, I won’t go any further. Rather I want to address the outrage being inflicted on the memory of Kate Smith. Perhaps many readers don’t remember her. The hefty singer of the 1930’s was an American treasure. Radio audiences adored her strong voice. Later on in the 50’s she has a TV show. I was exposed to her through by immigrant Dad who loved to listen to her, particularly when as she often did, sang patriotic songs.
Today the legacy of Kate Smith is being sullied. Apparently when times were different she performed songs that today are deemed as “racist”. Doesn’t matter that black performers sang the same lyrics. She is now reckoned to be a racist and as such her recording to “God Bless America” which has been played in the bottom of the seventh inning at Yankee games since 9/11 is now banned. Same thing in Philadelphia at Flyer games and course being the vulgarians that they are in Philly they have covered the statue of Kate in the concourse with a gross tarp. Perhaps there are more important things to stress over this morning but this really pisses me off and I’m sure my Dad wherever he may be would have a few choice Italian words. For me I can just say what the fuck is wrong with this country?
My current residence happens to be in the redneck area of New Jersey. A totally horrible place. Most of the people are fat and ugly and are totally repulsive. But perhaps the most disgusting thing about the area is the vast amount of pickup trucks operated by the local cretins. Among the large number of Trump supporters that reside here the pickup truck is a sign of prestige. When driving around in these redneck limousines the white trash love to operate them in a threatening manner. They speed and tailgate and generally drive very aggressively. For the most part their horrible driving is ignored by the cops because the cops probably have one at home sitting the driveway. My former residences were mostly traveled by BMW’s and Mercedes. Now it’s the fucking pickup truck. How the mighty have fallen!!!
I’m not in a particularly good mood this Monday morning. It was spring like for part of the weekend but the chill is back this morning and so is my sense of rage. Here it goes:
- I’m disgusted wit the Governor of New Jersey. This fool is running around attempting to be the darling of the radical left. His latest foray into leftist crap is championing the “rights” of transsexuals. I am so tired of hearing about trans this trans that. For god’s sake these poor souls are less that 1% of the population. They need a shrink. Having lived in a neighborhood that was periodically infested with these creeps I can testify that they are nothing but trouble. Sick people who need help. These “things” should not be included in the push for full gay rights which I support and the gay community makes a mistake in trying to include them in their push for equality. And to Govenor Murphy too bad you didn’t push as hard for legal weed and have your own party sandbag you. You have turned into a mega-creep and will never vote for you again.
- I’m disgusted with Joe Biden. Doesn’t he realize he is too old to run? He comes from a different era. Uncle Joe can’t seem to grasp that touchy feely with women doesn’t work any more. He was a loyal VP to Obama but other than that his record in sort of mixed as a Senator. Please Joe spare yourself more embarrassment and don’t run.
- I’m disgusted with the NY Yankees have opened the season very poorly. I was hoping for a nice alternative to the horrible barrage of political news by following my favorite team. Instead they have opened the season with losing two out of three to the lowly Orioles. They continue to play an asshole called Bret Gardner who they resigned for the year instead of farming him out to pasture and they persist in playing a fat ass loser behind the plate.
- I assure readers there are other issues I could raise but I think it would be better to have another cup of coffee!!
I must admit to thinking that Rep. Adam Schiff was a bit of a wimp. Boy was I wrong. Yesterday he blistered his disgusting Republican opponents on the House Intelligence Committee with one of the best political speeches in recent memory. Accordingly the asshole in chief went after him at a rally last night calling him a “pencil neck” his adoring cult members loved it!!! Obviously Mr. Schiff has touched a nerve with the cretin base to which I say BRAVO.
I get a kick out of all the comments on Twitter and other places about how the release of the Mueller report and the findings of Barr should not deter the Resistance from continued fighting of Dump the dictator. That is ridiculous. The game was fixed from the very beginning. Saint Mueller was nothing more than an apologist for the establishment. All those TV pundits who placed a halo over his head were assholes. The man is a political hack. And what the hell can you say about that fat fuck Barr?? Yes folks it’s time to panic and the only remedy to save democracy is to hit the streets. The Democrats are proving themselves to be incompetent ninnies and can’t stop the carnage that Dump is inflicting on our nation and the world. Who is going to save us? Adam Schiff. I think not. We must find a leader who will see the world for what it is. Time to panic and hit the streets before the Republicans find a reason to cancel the 2020 election.
My journey to atheism has been a slow one until recently. Now that the Christian Evangelical loonies are proclaiming that God sent Dump to “save” us I’m all in in denying the existence of God. Indeed, if there were a God in heaven above He would have sent an avenging angel to earth to strike down the fat bastard by now. Really these so called people of God are no more than uneducated cretins. They are the epitome of ignorance. People who deny science and play with snakes.
The more I see and hear Mayor Pete Buttigieg the more I like him. What an intelligent candidate. He is a pleasure to listen to and I will be supporting him for president. To be sure, his chances of getting the Democratic nomination are next to zero but that won’t stop me from contributing to his campaign. We need more politicians like Mayor Pete to elevate the political discussion. If he doesn’t get the nomination he is doing the nation a great service just by putting himself out there.
