I admit to being a political junkie for most of my life so Republican antics of the past few days has provided wonderful entertainment. However, the danger to the country grows with each day of Republican neglect. Of course, the image of crazy Republican fanatics keeping the House of Representatives in chaos is not helpful on the world stage. How this ends is anybody’s guess. One thing however is clear to me. The Republican Party is being held hostage by a small group of marginal fascists that only want to tear down our democracy. As much as I enjoy the political drama, we need a functioning House. At the same time, we need a new Republican party. I’m not optimistic and either score
Happy New Year
I have a strong feeling that 2023 may be a lousy year on many levels. Of course, everyone has their “micro” issues of health and relationships that could influence the total mix. Still, the “macro” issues could truly be stunning. First, the political situation in the country will be outrageous in 2023. Any hope for meaningful legislation to benefit our society is virtually nil. Republicans have cemented their position in the crazy lane, and they will contribute nothing to political dialogue but hate. . I predict that in 2023 we will see the horrible Ron DeSantis become the front runner for the 2024 nomination, I’m not as scared of him as I have been. I think he will self-destroy on the national scene. Of coarse the new year will increase speculation about another run by Biden. I sincerely hope that Biden will rest on his accomplishments and retire. He will go down in history as being a significant player in the restoration of American democracy. If that happens who will the Democrat’s choose.? I can’t even conjure up who it would be. Meanwhile climate problems will continue unabated in the coming year. Climate change is serious, and I shudder to think of the worst outcomes. Russia may be a real problem in 2023. Putin is hopelessly lost in Ukraine and lost men often do nutty things, The man does have nukes. Anyway, I hope to be commenting more frequently in coming months but for now Happy New Year to all.
The Santos Travesty
The big news this morning is that newly elected House Representative George Santos lied about his background. Mind you these were not little white lies but king size whoppers. He has admitted to lying about his business experience, religion, and sexuality. He has admitted to being broke and then suddenly lent his campaign $700,000. Lied about his residency, and by some accounts committed crimes in Brazil. The guy is a travesty and should not be allowed to sit in Congress. Now to be sure most political figures fudge the truth but in this case the fraud is so apparent that it warrants decisive action. Also, I believe the NYS Democrat party is a joke. Did they ever hear about opposition research? This Santos character was running for the SECOND time. The political malpractice is amazing. Anyway, Santos will likely be seated as Republicans need every possible vote to control the chamber. Sad commentary on our political climate.
It’s hard to imagine a more narcissistic person than Elon Musk I still can’t figure out how someone so disgusting became so filthy rich. And he got rich off the people who he now disses. The liberals who bought his electric cars because they were eco-l friendly. Seeing him at the World Cup yesterday along with that repulsive Jared Kushner was enough to spoil my Sunday dinner.
I really can’t stand Elon Musk. Trump was always a sort of cartoon character, but Musk is in a real threat to society. To begin with Musk could likely buy and sell Trump. Just what we needed another lunatic!!!!
End of Days
I’ve been trying to avoid too much of the news because my fragile sanity can’t really handle all the shit. The reign of terror brought about by Trump is never ending, He is in the news seemingly every day only to be joined by another demented character in the form of Elon Musk. Forget the weather. The intensity of storms is getting out of control. And Christmas is hovering on the horizon with visions of calamity. Surely, we are in the end of days.
Harry and Meghan
Thank goodness for Harry and Meghan. I have been depressed lately and I needed to be cheered up. Watching H&M really hit the spot. Their sheer audacity and stupidity had me laughing out loud!!! Meghan in particular comes off as a total bitch. Harry resembles a nitwit. Actually, I felt grateful for the three Netflix episodes. I recommend them for those who want to feel better about themselves after watching two completely vapid and not very interesting people.
Warnock and the Senate
Senator Warnock will have a huge beneficial impact on many issues and will in my estimation become a powerful moral voice in the Senate, and few can argue that is needed. The preacher from Atlanta will be a great spokesperson for reasonable social policy initiatives, Also, just happy to see the Democrats with a little more wiggle room in the upper chamber. The “pundits” are already carrying on about the horrible 2024 Senate map for the Democrats and realistically it doesn’t look very good. Let’s hope Democrats can hold on to seats in a presidential election year.
I’m relieved that Warnock won but very distressed that so many
people actually thought Walker was fit to be a senator. While I’m not a huge Warnock fan I certainly prefer him in the US Senate rather than a complete imbecile. The bigger issue is the audacity of the Republican party to field such a candidate. Lord have mercy!!!
Beam me up!!!!!!
Haven’t been posting much lately owing to deep depression about the state of the nation. Really things are just getting ridiculous. When a deranged rapper can get this much attention and a lunatic billionaire attempts to emulate God thing are really spiraling out of control. Marjorie Taylor Green dominates a news cycle owing to her comments concerning farts. She then feuds with a huge neo-Nazi. This folks is your modern-day Republican party. Oh, then you have the insane former president (won’t type his name) declaring the constitution should be suspended and that he should regain the presidency. Yes, I think this is the twilight zone. Beam me up Scotty!!!!
