During the 2016 Presidential Election, I voted for neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump but rather the Libertarian ticket. As a lifelong registered Independent, I’ve always said “My vote’s for sale,” open to the candidate who’s most qualified to become President of the United States.
Fast forward to 2019, let’s look at the current POTUS. Here’s a man who’s clueless about the economy, geopolitics as well as our climate or at least projecting a presidential vibe to the entire nation, and not just his sycophant base whom elected him to be Leader of the Free World.
This dude, this Tweeter-in-Chief, can’t allow one day to go by without literally scaring the you know what out of us sane people. I thought he was to inspire and govern with common sense.
Guess that’s asking way too much, huh? Oh, close your mouth because you know it’s true.
Axios (whatever that is) sat back and said GEEEEE, let’s see, what can we make up today to embarrass the President? Then they said, “why don’t we say he wants to bomb a hurricane, that should do it!” The media in our Country is totally out of control!
His latest dumb-azz comment
How about dropping a nuclear bomb into the eye of a hurricane to prevent it from touching down on American soil? WTF?
Now, of course, he’s denies ever saying this shi—stuff. Then again, he’s known for flip-flopping on his own quotes.
So, yeah, all of you Trump disciples can go on with this mindless, sheep-like praise of this moron in the Oval Office, if you want to. As for me, I’m seriously considering leaving the country, shoot, perhaps even pre-book a first class ticket straight to the moon.
Because if he and his fellow cohorts (especially the newly-elected Right-Wing Brazilian president) of global irresponsibility continue on their path of destruction, craterfront property on the moon might be the best move to escape an environmental disaster of epic proportions in the making.
Burn, Baby, Burn
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro recently proved himself to be just as much as a temper tantrum-toddler as Trump, refusing to accept financial assistance from France to combat the current Amazon Rain Forrest fires until it’s president gives an apology for verbally hurting his feelings. Nobody can make this stuff up.
Well, fortunately for the people of Brazil, among several other South American countries, as well as the rest of the world, Bolsonaro begrudgingly agreed to accept the kind offer to quench the ongoing blaze.
Hold up a moment. I’ve gotta refresh my drink. . . Ahh, that’s better.
Now where was I? Oh, yeah!
Drill, Baby, Drill
Uh-huh, that’s the moto of the current A-holes in charge. When they’re not green lighting rogue farmers and loggers to illegally ignite fires in our Amazon Rain Forrest, they’re rolling back safety regulations, protective measures that protect our land, air and water from pollution.
Likewise, I think I can speak for everyone reading this article that we all want clean drinking water. That should be a given, right?
Between Trump and Bolsonaro, the entire world’s witnessing the rape of natural resources. There’s no reason why any of these multinational corporations should roam free without federal oversight whenever drilling for oil, especially at the expensive of destroying our environment.
Remember, this is our planet. It belongs to all of us, not a handful of companies out to secure its shareholders’ bottom line.
Now say whatever negative thing you want about President Barrack Obama. At least the man didn’t contaminate the Earth for personal profit like these selfish, short-sighted politicians are doing at this very moment under the guise of making their respective countries great again.
Solutions to This Fiasco
Gee, I dunno. Vote, I guess?
Naw, it can’t be that simple. Can it?
C’mon, it’s not like we don’t already have a plethora of candidates up for the job of possibly being elected the next Commander-in-Chief in 2020. From Senator Bernie Sanders to former Vice President Joe Biden to Senator Elizabeth Warren to, oh, gosh, Goofy.
Okay, Goofy’s a wild card. Then again, what harm could it do?
I mean, the sole good thing about this whole fiasco is all of the devils are out in the open, downrange for the taking. No, I’m not talking about taking them out like that but putting the pressure on them all from an individual basis.
Look, political party withstanding, it’s the sane people like you and I (even the wayward MAGA groupies of Trump) who’ll light a backfire to hopefully extinguish this burning cesspool of global iniquity. It’s beyond just being embarrassing but has become a call for a combined response from the people.
Because contrary to popular belief, it really is our house. And it’s on muh phuckin’ fire.
