HUMOR

The police shooting of a caregiver lying prone with his hands extended is funny only because no one died.

It’s funny because this cop found it appropriate to fire at an autistic man with a toy truck.

It’s funny because he was such a piss poor shot, he missed his target entirely.

It’s funny because the health care worker was hit in the leg rather than the head.

It’s funny because this is the level of professionalism encountered from the people sworn and tasked to protect us.

How come I’m not laughing?

RUMP 1

Yes, it was dark. Not ‘Morning in America’ but rather “In the shank of the evening America…”

In the idealized America we remember, (and perhaps misremember) our borders were the logical destination for any thinking person that could, to come. We offered freedom. Our freedom had conditions of course; one would likely encounter prejudice and xenophobia…and yet they came. For generations. And a country that had been predominantly and proudly white since its inception, over time…

Well many of these aspirants were brown and black and yellow. And they brought with them their skills and their ambitions and their energy…and America benefitted. So much that, try tho they might to pretend it’s a big tent, Rump is speaking primarily to white people. And any other races that manage to think as he does. The browning of America, much like climate change is well underway. And it is a one-way trip.
Rump digs coal. Hoo-rah. Giuliani wants to see fracking in New York. And steel factories, right. But I think I have stumbled onto something. Rump above all is a master of debt. At least so far. He is litigious and a bully and as he proudly said tonite, “I know the system.” He’s surely gamed it enough times.

So here’s the long con. Rump wins, grants unsupportable tax cuts to the wealthy and the government faces deficit. And Rump decides to cut away. Declare bankruptcy. The United States Government declares bankruptcy. Rump cheers, tells us he expects to settle our debts for pennies on the dollar.

Hey, maybe the Stones were right.  “You can’t always get what you want….”
