BLOWING IT UP

We are closing in on 100 days of Trump-o-Matic. From crisis, to calamity, catastrophe to cataclysm, it has been everything we feared and more. Just when we think it can’t get worse, it gets worse. Then, it gets worser.

Trump-o-Matic managed to get elected, but he has no functional cabinet. No direction. For all that, he seems intent on leading us to war. He can’t write a piece of legislation and has no legislative agenda. But war? He’s got that one!

Like morons, we applaud as if the act of bombing other countries somehow makes us “the good guys.” The guys we bomb may not be better than us, be we are doing the bombing … so what does that make us? Does it never occur to anyone that maybe we aren’t the good guys either? That our enthusiasm for going to war — especially when a president needs a “ratings boost” — don’t give us a high moral authority?

This is another one of those times when I laugh hysterically. The oncoming demise of this world is surely worth, at the very least, a guffaw or a solid chuckle.  It isn’t funny at all, but what’s left to do but laugh? A war with North Korea is potentially life ending and considering how hard I’ve worked to stay alive over the past decade, I want to live. Even with Trump-o-Matic in power.

There is a madness sweeping the world. Not just in the United States, but everywhere. All over — Europe, Australia, England and who knows where else — people are voting into office the kind of people we had two world wars to eliminate. Two generations of men and women were slaughtered to finally remove them from power. The most hideous part is that the people who are voting for these dreadful, brutal, hateful dictatorial idiots don’t realize that they are doing again what their predecessors did before.

Blind to the past, they are walking backwards into a terrible future.

  1. It’s a scary time, I would never thought it possible. I think I am glad that my dad did not live to see this. Someone somewhere got voted, and the others joined in and now they are everywhere. I have seen many films with horror visions of the future, but currently the reality of the times we live in is beating it all.

    • I feel that way about my mother. I am so glad she didn’t live to see this. This is everything she feared might someday happen. I thought it never could. She was right and I was wrong.

      The horror of it is that it ISN’T only America or England. It’s everywhere. The demons never leave us.

      • In about 2005, my mother, who died in 2010 at age 96, began to tell me “I hate this decade,” or even “I hate this century.” I wondered then what she knew, as she was often prescient! Like you, I’m glad she didn’t live to see it happen.

  2. I agree with you and with angloswiss. We are living the ultimate horror movie. I’ve been having the same thoughts lately, about killing people, which gives great ratings boosts to our leader while earning our enemy’s leader a murderous epithet.

    • I have been having this conversation with Garry and Tom and Ellin and Rich. How can we keep assuming we are the good guys when our FIRST reaction to any situation is to drop the biggest bombs we can find on whoever we think is at fault? They may BE bad guys … but how much better are we in the end? Killing is killing is killing and it is time to stop the killing.

  3. You mention the two World Wars – both precipitated by harsh financial times. When the people can’t live, they desperately grasp at straw-men. The greedy, powerful elite know this, aim for such conditions, and then try to make their biggest “killings” yet.
