So, now the draft dodger
president, who never served, has stuck his face
armed forces' rules of order and discipline.
(our military's original, first, Rules of Order
and Discipline were written by LT GEN Friedrich
Von Steuben, America's first Gay General, an
immigrant, and patriotic volunteer in the
Continental Army). The president imagines that pardoning people who have
poisoned the reputation of honorable American
service members will gain him the votes of
racist 'patriots.' The big case in the
news is about a Navy Seal Chief, that's an E7.
The guy apparently got off by killing a tied up
captive teenager with a knife and then
committing the ultimate perversion of posing for
a 'trophy' photo with the child's bloody dead body! WTF! SICK! What patriotic honorable
veteran or service member would want to be led
by fuck-up like that? Our NCOs are the
backbone of our American armed forces.
There have always been a few mean buttholes who
got promoted; but the great majority of our
senior NCOs are those who understand the immense
task of being responsible for the safety and
well being of their Troops, Sailors, Airmen and
Marines. Many are mentors both to those
serving under their leadership as well as to
younger Lieutenants learning what it takes to
I should know, I was a Sgt First
Class, E7, during and after Vietnam. Sure,
I know how to curse like a sailor, but Never at
my soldiers! I had to hide who I was, as a
gay man, the whole time, ten years. If my
people ever even suspected who I was I would
have either been killed or reported on,
interrogated and discharged in disgrace. I
knew the rules, and I respected my troops, so
they respected me. Simple as that.
No, it wasn't easy; but I'm still proud as hell
of my service all these years later. But,
I am sick and disgusted that the president would
'honor' someone who disgraced our service and
It is not surprising that the
president would want to pardon and honor someone
totally lacking in morality. It is someone
exactly like him, of course. How could the
president not admire a vicious child killer;
considering that he himself ordered the caging
and torture of little children stolen from their
immigrant parents. He has dishonored
everyone who ever served.

So, mid November saw New York's
former Mayor Michael Bloomberg blowing smoke
about suddenly running for President As A
Democrat! What the Hell! First of
all, he's a damn Republican despite his having
conveniently switched parties more than once.
Secondly, who the hell needs another arrogant
Rich Old White Guy running for President?
It was Mayor
Bloomberg who promoted and advanced the racist
'Stop and Frisk' racial profiling policy in New
York City that victimized some million young
Black and Hispanic citizens for over a decade.
Some days after announcing his intention to run, Bloomberg gave a thorough
apology in a speech in a prominent Black church
in Brooklyn with a preacher who was full of
ebullient forgiveness or perhaps gratitude for a
generous donation, who knows. Bloomberg
has donated millions to many good causes; and he
can pay for his entire campaign out of his own
pocket. But, its still incredibly
egomaniacal and arrogant to barge into the race
at this point. The apology
was broadly panned as rather convenient for a
man running for president needing the black
The fact that this rich crusty
old fart is 77 should not be forgotten, along
with his other perishable peers -the old
socialists Sanders and Warren. Being in my
I'm allowed to say that, so get over it.
Lets start with his FAKE old Noo
Yawk accent imitating some uneducated
Brooklynite from the 1940s. NO ONE talks
that way anymore except in old time black and
white gangster movies. Every time it
snowed or rained or whatever, Bloomberg hogged
the evening news with a silly Press Conference
as he spoke in his whiny high pitched voice
using 'woids' like 'Youse guys' and pretending
to have 'diffuckilty' pronouncing plain English
as if he'd grown up in a 1930s Brooklyn slum
instead of wealthy Westport. Oddly, in
news clips from his speeches elsewhere in the
county: NO Accent at all, Hmmmm!
Then there was his stolen third
term as mayor. New Yorkers TWICE voted for
term limits! But, an 'exception' was
pushed through by his lap dog the City Council
Speaker who conveniently also got a third term
'exception' along with all the Council Members
who voted for it; the ultimate disgusting
corruption on steroids. And stupid New
Yorkers voted them all in again. Tschhh!
So, lets look at his 12 year
administration. The best thing he did was
to replace his crazed predecessor. After
that it was all downhill. He had a huge
number of highly paid appointees and
commissioners in no-show jobs who had sold their
souls to him after having lost surefire
elections as certified left wing Democrats.
Well, 12 year ass-kissing do-nothing careers at
top city salaries isn't a bad consolation prize
for loosing elections.
Bloomberg has a good rap about
being for peoples rights, and other good stuff
like that. But, so did the current Hitler
clone in the White House. People are
likely to think, "Ohhh NO ya don't, NOT AGAIN!
Not another rich old white guy blabbering
bullshit!" He could spent something like
100 million of his own money on this.
That's just loose pocket change to a guy with 51
Mind you, I'd vote for him,
Humpty Dumpty, or Howdy Doody, if they were
running against Der Schweinhundt.
