Oh gee... they are doing that thing again...

Lately I've been seeing a few cases of the old meme that "OBummer" (or this morning, the ever more creative "ODildo" which doesn't really work as far as I'm concerned... it's missing the all important "B" that gives the name calling definition), is going to start a race war so that he can declare martial law and cancel the 2016 election.  Presumably to make himself President for Life.

Geesh.. not this crap again.

This same stupid meme comes up every 4 years.  Bush, Clinton, Bush (el primo the first one), Regan....  and on back through time.  You get the picture.  It happens on both sides of the political chasm.

The funny/not-so-funny part of this is that these people actually seem to believe it.

Then, when their stupid prediction (predictably) does not happen, do we get an "Sorry, I was wrong" out of these people?  NO.  C'mon people, this is getting annoying.  If you are going to make an ass of yourself repeating this drek ad-nauseum, you can at least own it when you are proven to be an idiot.

We promise, we won't point and laugh TOO much.

Not for Nuthin...

Commented elsewhere, but I think I'll own it here.

The Donald is enjoying some time being the top, or near top, polling Republican hopeful.

You know it, I know it, more universally excepted than global warming/climate change/excuse for more government...  Donald Trump is a LOON.

If the fact that The Donald is polling so high in the pack doesn't clue in the Republican party leadership that they've driven the train off the tracks, then I don't know what will and the Republican party is lost (and deserves to be).

Can't there be a plan C?

Democrat?  Republican?  Who are the "good guys"?

So, soon we will find ourselves the spectators of a contest to pick a new president.  So far I'm less than impressed with the possibles.

So far, we have Hillary Clinton, or an avowed Socialist for the Democrats (and maybe one other, who is so boring, I don't even know his name).

For the Republicans, we have an enormous field (apparently still growing) of... yawn.  While you won't find any Socialists among them (I don't think anyway, maybe "The Donald" or one of the others might be a closet socialist, who knows?).  What you WILL find is that an awful lot of big government busy-bodies, just as bad as their opposition, just not always in the same ways.  Some of them manage to hide it better than the others.

What we really need is a third choice.  Someone who will stand up for freedom, liberty, and the rights of all Americans.  Both of the established parties pay lip service to this ideal, and both fall far short.

Our imaginary third choice must also be ready to make the hard choices and do the things to stem the flood of money gushing from our Federal Government.  Right now, our Federal Government spends FAR more than it takes in.  If you want to see where that leads, look towards Greece right now.  Yes, yes, I've heard the stupid arguments about Greece not being able to collect taxes, and Greece being unable to print their own money (so that they could somehow buy their way out of debt, as if that would work).  Then there is always the "you just don't know how federal budgeting works on that level" argument.  That, by the way, is an incredibly stupid argument.  If you know something I don't, school me or shut the fuck up.  I do note that I never hear that particular argument from anyone who would know anything.

The thing about it is... Greece has the EU (ahem... Germans... cough) who can afford to bail them out.  If the United States goes down that same hole, there isn't ANYONE big enough to bail US out.  In fact, we would probably be taking much of the rest of the world with us when we go.  It's definitely time for sanity in American economic policy.  Sadly, I don't see that happening.

In which I say thank you to Rachel Dolezal

Those of you who know  me,  which by all  rights should be precisely none of you (I'm just that famous) may recall me in a previous "creative outlet" declaring that the very concept of race is a false one.  We are all, in fact, human.  For all to hear, in that forum I declared that the world would be a better place if everyone would just F#(& everyone without regard to such things as skin color or ancestral place or origin.  In a few short generations the human race would all be a nice shade of light to medium brown with little to differentiate the racial makeup of an individual because it would all be diluted to inconsequence.  Frankly, I still believe in that dream.

So my thank you to Rachel Dolezal is for proving me right.  Is she black?  Is she white?  Perhaps purple, yellow, or (gasp) green?  Who cares?!?!  And if Rachel Dolezal can just magically cross the great racial divide and "identify as black" just because she wants to, then that gap, that giant tear in the fabric of society, that rift which cannot be crossed... well, I guess it isn't such a big thing after all.

Now if only we could get the rest of the world would see it...

The grand entrance!

I've lost my tricycle of thought.  I would say Train of Thought, but let's get real here, I'm not not a big enough thinker to warrant an entire train.  I am much more comfortable with my little tricycle.

Even a man with a tricycle sometimes has some things to say to the world.  This blog is my voice.  Yes, I know that blogging is dead and nobody is likely to read my words.  Who cares.  I do this for me.
