The Collateral Damage of Trump’s Spiritual Bankrutpcy

I’ve had a temporary power outage. It’s been all things Trump, all the time. A form of walking pneumonia. I see his ugly hateful face, even in my dreams, and I seethe. I see a glory thirsty monster that would knock off the Dalai Lama if he thought he could steal that title too. Man baby Trump is spiritually bankrupt, and he’s a guy who know’s a thing or two about bankruptcy. Practice makes perfect. He also  knows how to take down plenty of innocent folks along the way.

What’s at stake is not just an outlandish hotel or a fancy gambling den going into foreclosure, or even lowbrow Trump vodka,  but our very way of life as Americans.

This is gambling and there’s no future in that.

After hearing some of Trumps plans, the people of Kentucky, who voted him in 5 to 1, are now anxious and concerned about losing health care. Boo fucking hoo.

Should have done your homework.

The supporters of this vile self-centered, racist, homophobic, pedophile, womanizing con artist do not have a monopoly on patriotism. In fact, I would now argue that opposite is true. You are all traitors, so fuck you. A vote for treasonous Trump was a vote for the death of our democracy. We still have what’s called a constitution with amendments in this country. You might want to educate yourself and check it out, it’s free and there is no shame in education, it isn’t a liberal conspiracy.

I ran across a quote by Isaac Asimov, ”

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.

This is an idea that the radical right have been hammering on for quite some time. Trump doesn’t read, he pays people to do that for him, then doesn’t listen. This is not a smart man, this is a man born in a gilded palace surrounded by people who are so out of touch that they believe they are the only ones who matter.

The self proclaimed “blue collar billionaire”, sits on a throne for crying out loud.

The gloves have got to come off now, we must call it for what it is. Is there no one in Washington left with a set of balls besides Elizabeth Warren or Elijah Cummings? The house and senate are falling in line just like the Vichy government did for Hitler. The threat is crystal clear, and it has an orange glow. One of the differences between Hitler and Trump is that Hitler came out of nowhere in Germany in a time of deep depression. Trump, on the other hand, has made his run during a time of economic growth and recovery from the worse financial meltdown since the great depression. He’s been a verifiable shit heel for decades. He doesn’t hide it, and doesn’t deny it. To his staunch supporters, it doesn’t matter.

This is not economic angst, we all know those high paying manufacturing jobs are gone. Maybe he’ll bring back the steam engine. Tell the truth, this is about racism pure and simple. How dare Obama for being born black in this country. This is a vendetta. Mr. Vendetta has spread his sickness like a plague and is hell bent on getting even, democracy be damned. He is one sorry ass excuse of a human being with no decency or admirable qualities visible through even the milkiest of eyes.

Name one thing Trump has done for someone else in his lifetime.

Me neither.

There are over 62 million people who don’t accept this nonsense and never will. I am one of them. I will attend rallies. I will give money to the A.C.L.U. I will be vocal. I will say something if I see something. I will call my Senator and Congress, everyday, if need be. And I will write.

How he has managed to co-opt American democracy with the help of a handful of angry neutered frightened white men in positions of power is beyond belief. All the so called educated public servants in congress fall in line as they watch him flush 200 plus years of “We the people”, down one of his 24carat toilets.
His, “look how rich I am”, shuck and jive is actually hitting it’s mark. I look out my window, I don’t see anyone coming for all the guns I don’t possess. I don’t see terrorists lurking in the dark, ready to maim and destroy me, but I do see Trump supporters and I am baffled.

Truth is the minor inconvenience that gets in the way of his murky vision of making America white again. Hence the push to shut down legitimate journalism. I’m worried that these folk are never going away, even after he gets his sorry thieving ass kicked out.

    Yep. Truly shocking outcome. Let’s just hope that following the darkness is the dawn. This is a sorry, sorry state of affairs for the American people.
