president's have led strongly and
quietly, even boringly, confidently
guiding the nation like a great ship
through the seas of history.
Other's, such as Kennedy and Johnson,
illuminated and inspired the nation with
every word they spoke and every action
they took. Lyndon Baines Johnson,
LBJ, was a crude down to Earth Texan
who's strength of genuine character and
knowledge of government leadership
enabled him to lead the nation toward
equality for all Americans in both the
rights and benefits of citizenship,
starting with the right to vote and
Medicare. Ever since he led our
nation, there has been a sincere drive
towards 'health care for all.'
That's a carefully chosen neutral set of
words. It means 'Universal Health
Care,' which even the poorest most
primitive countries in the world provide
to their starving citizens. It may
not be much more than a tent out in the
bush staffed by
Médecins Sans Frontières, but its still
free universal care. Only America stands out, alone,
where the poor are routinely denied one
of the most basic of human rights on
It took the previous
president, with the wisdom and presence of mind
of all previous presidents, to ultimately create
the start of health care for all in America.
The flaw was that the opposition right wing
forced him to create a Capitalist health care
system, when true world-standard universal
health care is inherently socialist, of the
people and for the people. When you have a
system based on useless middle men determined to
make money, to mine the health and safety of the
nation for greedy gain, you have something that
is made of poison pills instead of medicine.
Instead of straightforward provision of health
care simply paid for by taxes as in the rest of
the civilized world, you have a system where
over 70 percent of the cost is stolen by people
who inserted themselves in between health care
and people by 'selling' the health care.
They don't provide the health care, they simply
sell it; it doesn't even belong to them!
All that money that could pay for medicine,
modern hospitals and clinics, training doctors
and more, goes straight down the toilet into
their pockets. Of course the cost keeps
going up; the right wing way of doing things is
designed to do that, to suck the blood of the
poor till not a drop is left.
But, it was designed
so cleverly that it worked anyway, giving health
care to millions and millions of Americans.
That annoyed the hell out of the far right gang
of politicians whose mean spirited souls could
not stand the decency of health care for all.
And so the
rat leading the nation, set out
to kill health care for all by supposedly
cleverly substituting a plan that would minimalize healthcare while maximizing the
middlemen's bloodsucking. Ahh, such a
clever plan hatched in the dark of night by the
darkest of hearts! You would think that
that plan would be killed by those who care,
screaming bloody murder. But, in fact, it
was killed by far right wing Congressional
Cockroaches opposed to even the pretense of
providing health care to all.
So much for that; lets
move on to treason! The foul stink of
treason gets higher and higher every day.
More moral men might have resigned by now and
fled into the night never to be heard from
again. But not these Cretans. It all
began with word that some of the top campaign
team members had somehow had individual meetings
with Russia's top American diplomat at the
Republican National Convention in Cincinnati.
Sounds OK, right? WAIT a minute!
WHAT the hell was HE doing there!? Talk
about Chutzpah! Nothing against him, mind
you; he was just doing his job. The real
question, never asked, was WHO gave him a 3D
Holographic VIP Executive Badge-ticket which let
him in to wander the exclusive back room halls
and meeting rooms rubbing shoulders with the top
party leaders, and platform committee members,
like he owned the place? WTF?
And that was just the
kitchen door. There were more meetings
with more current administration appointees, in
Washington DC, in Moscow,
and all over hell
and back, with awards and money
flowing freely along with the celebratory vodka.
HOLY S...! And everyone is acting like it
was just business as usual. I'm
apoplectic! Sure sure, its OK, really;
after all its not like they were communists or
anything, they are Capitalists just like us.
These were all simply biznizz meetings about
normal business like hacking, and propaganda,
and fake news, and stealing email and who knows
what. It stinks!
Enough of that, lets
move on to the environment. Of course,
killing the environment is a lot like treason,
only its global treason. Even the leader
of Russia is an environmentalist. There
was some story years ago where he flew and ultra
light plane, dressed as a duck, to lead a bunch
of birds to their spring breeding grounds;
something like that, I probably don't remember
it right. Anyway it didn't work. The
birds followed him, landed, took a poo, and then
took off an flew right back to where they came
from. Who knows; what matters was that he
was willing to inadvertently make a fool of
himself for the sake of the environment.
But not our old goat. I really can't think
of anything more mean than gleefully killing the
environment! There was a front page
picture in the newspaper, towards the end of
March, showing him signing the
papers to authorize destroying the environment,
beaming with glee and pride, surrounded by
grinning grim suit
and tie right wing monsters all happy as hell.
So what if their own children and grandchildren
choke and die gasping for breath; there' s money
to be made raping the Earth, with mines and huge fracking drills squirting toxic chemicals into
our soil, poisoning our wells and rivers, and nothing else matters!
So, there you have it.
Every single day in every way we are led by a
man determined to disgrace the nation.
Even as I write this, new scandals bubble up
from the stinking sewer muck
every hour, day and night. There
was a time when those righteous right wing
servants of Satan could say that we proud
patriotic gay service men and women were a bad
influence on their sons and daughters serving
our nation. Sure, listen to the voice of
pure hate emanating from the foul stinking
sulfuric rump of evil. Speak up, before
that too is forbidden.
