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.
The Republican Party is now nothing more than a collection of sociopath cretins who are interested in doing away with democracy. They are zealots and provide a real challenge to all those who want to preserve democratic rule. Unfortunately, their task is made easy by the reluctance of the Democrats to have any backbone in confronting them. To be sure there are some vocal Democrats but for the large part the party has mounted no real challenge to the autocratic movement being espoused by the Republicans. Accordingly, as 2022 moves on I see no reason for optimism that Republican criminals (particularly Trump and his cohorts) will face any accountability. Shame on the Democrats!!!!
It really wasn’t too difficult to pick the worst person of the year. Joe Manchin is easily the winner. This very wealthy hillbilly from West Virgina managed to deny millions of Americans who needed financial help from getting it. Manchin says he is a Democrat but in reality, he is a creepy Republican. I could go on at length about how repulsive I find this man but actually he’s not worth the keystrokes. Clearly the worst person of the year.
I’ve been struggling to come up with the worst person of the year award. Not to say there is a lack of candidates. Indeed, the problem is there are so many candidates. There are the obvious ones like the crazy Republicans in the House who spew completely delusional shit. There are the usual suspects in the Senate. It seems that Moscow Mitch is always a strong candidate for our award. Still the perfect worst person is elusive for me. Maybe I’ll give it some more thought. Stay tuned.
How can anyone ignore the signs and the omens? These have to be the end of times. When tornadoes wipe out towns in December the obvious culprit must be climate change. And what about the western wild fires and the northeast floods of this year, Yet the old fool in the White House refuses to admit that the tornadoes were part of the climate disaster now impacting the globe. Another sign of the end of times is a pandemic that seems not to be over by a long shot. Depression and anxiety are running rampart across the world. Things are bound to get worse on the pandemic front once the holidays are past. January will be brutal. Just waiting for the big earthquake out West to provide the icing on the horrible cake.
Perhaps it’s the full moon that is making the Republicans behave even more unhinged than usual. Truly folks this bunch of creeps needs some serious therapy. I inflicted upon myself the horror of watching the C-Span debate on Gosar. The vast majority of Republican speakers were pure sociopaths. We are in serious danger if these loonies take over the House next year which many polls are suggesting will happen. Can you imagine McCarthy in line to be Speaker? Enough to give me a panic attack.
There can be really no denying that the COVID pandemic has wrecked the mental health of millions of people. People are angry and pissed off. Republican win some elections and the anger enters electoral politics. Biden approval at 38% this morning. Try as you may you can’t put a good spin on the national mood. Will this doom Democrats next year? Perhaps not. An old saying in politics is that ” 24 hours is a lifetime in politics” Even more true in the internet age. Keeping my fingers crossed but things sure don’t look good now.
Truly folks the media in this country is out of hand!!! To be sure the recent off year elections were nothing short of disappointing for Democrats and with good reason. Democrats have given the country a vivid display of incompetence via the shit storm now going on in Congress. Democrats control the House, Senate, and the Executive but they can’t get vital legislation passed. This current bunch of Democrat jerks in the House is the worst of my memory. They are clowns. Meanwhile Biden is increasingly and visibly failing in any realistic approach to leadership. I contend he is suffering from cognitive decline, He should resign for the good of the country
As for the actual elections the media reports of Democrat gloom were more than a little exaggerated. Take Virginia. The Democrats candidate was likely one of the worst ever!!! Still he made it close with historic trends also a hindrance, Frankly I intensely dislike Terry. A complete asshole. And here in Jersey the media is reporting this “close” election for Governor was a big surprise. In reality folks when all the vote is counted Murphy will win by about 4 points. First time in 40 years a Democrat Governor reelected. So take a chill folks. Not to say I’m not worried sick over next year. Democrats need to get their shit together and first is getting rid of the stiff in the Oval Office. Biden is way too old. I don’t wish the man ill but for the good of the country he should step down and let Kamala step in. That would shake things up a bit!!!
Posts on this blog have become more infrequent in recent months. Not because there is nothing to talk about but because there is TOO much to talk about. Indeed this is the era of chaos. What else to call a time when there is so much reluctance on the part of some severely demented people not to get vaccinated against a potentially deadly disease? How do you really attempt to comment on a political party that sells nothing but a big lie? How do you write about a well intentioned old fool who should not be president of the United States? And why is a former president who is guilty of organizing a coup attempt still free? How to comment of the calamity of climate change that is spelling doom for the planet and human life? How do you comment on these and other factors that have the world in chaos like I’ve never seen in my life time? So folks it’s not as if I don’t want to post more but very often the chaos of the times just leaves me very depressed.
Increasingly I can’t stand watching Joe Biden give another platitude laden speech. Not only does he make no sense from a policy viewpoint but the optics of his being is quite disturbing. Mr. Biden is 78 and looks at least ten years older. He keeps touching his face nervously as he talks. Even has difficulty reaching off the prompter. At this point I have no reason to think that he would even consider a second term. A discussion about who the Democrats might put forth will be interesting. I wouldn’t bet on Kamala. She has been bust as VP. Maybe Amy Klobuchar? Who knows, but for now the concentration should be on Biden’s mental health. Is he in cognitive decline??? Or is he just a bad joke!!!
