State of Delusion
So, POTUS delivered his delayed
SOTU on February 5h. We live in a world of
grammatically incorrect abbreviations. It
all began with President Lyndon Bains Johnson,
LBJ, in the early 1960s when he came up with
labeling phones linked to him with 'POTUS,'
short for 'President Of The United States.'
That should have been PUS, but I suppose POTUS
sounds better, particularly to Southern ears.
Although with the current POTUS its more like
the Southern dialect difference between Pee Can and P'con.
He's either full of stale piss, or he's nuts. SOTU, for 'State of the Union,' is of more
recent vintage. This year's SOTU was a Stark
Raving Nuts rant by a would-be dictator using
the same sort of stuck-up throaty glottal grunting that
Stalin spoke with. Its the voice of an
He spoke of World War II
heroes as if he were somehow claiming credit for
the American victory led by Democratic
Presidents, Franklyn Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
He spoke falsely about equality and healthcare
as if he were claiming credit for historically
progressive reforms enacted by Democratic
Presidents, Johnson and Obama; while failing to
mention that he has led his party of prejudice
to destroy those enhanced American values.
Most insanely dangerous, he
spoke of 'unity,' both foreign and domestic, in
threatening terms. He implied that failure
to unify behind his demands would incur his
wrath militarily, unilaterally, and
unconstitutionally. He totally missed the
ridiculed applause when he implied that his
regressive leadership had led to the largest
number of elected females in history; as the
Speaker of the House gleefully gestured behind
him for those women to stand and cheer loudly
and derisively. Meanwhile, he had his own
prearranged chorus of Republican rodents
hooting, "USA, USA" as if they were drunks in a
bar shouting at a TV showing a football game.
praised him for not straying from his
teleprompter text. But, it seemed to me
that he actually lost his place, at one point,
and repeated a few phases before dropping back
down to where he was supposed to be. You
could tell that he thought he'd done it
smoothly, but a lot of folks were like, "Huh?
What?" It didn't matter, of course,
because the whole speech was full of clichés,
fake blather, and bullshit. At the end he
even had the ghastly nerve to try to steal a few
phases form the Declaration of Independence but
twisted to his perverse perspective.
Several times he turned sideways to show off his
imagined telegenic profile with his heavily hair
sprayed blond bouffant wig resplendently glued
to his bald head.
At one point he delusionally
ranted about "The Commies are coming, the
Commies are coming..." And vowed that he would
never allow 'socialism' to poison the American
Way. Of course he was trying to demean
certain newly elected Democrats who support
European style socialism which offers medical
care for all, among other national benefits.
He, of course, idolizes the worlds biggest
capitalist countries: Russia and China.
Most delusionally, he talked
about a national emergency. Yes, there IS a
national emergency that requires invoking the
