The Kanye Problem.

Really? Even after having a mild heart attack  (it happened on July 1st, and I am fine,) I thought 2020 couldn’t get any fucking worse, but Kanye West announced that he is running for President FOUR FUCKING MONTHS before the election, and he has the support from Elon Musk? Even after the show that he made of kissing Trump’s ass all this time? Is he fucking high? No one takes him seriously. Fer chrissakes, he and Kim “Big Ass” Kardashian named their kid “North.”

He thinks that his “base” is going to support him. He’s hoping that he can tune into the collective rage that happened over the death of George Floyd during his arrest. But the thing is, this crossed racial barriers, and a lot of the people that are protesting are pretty much from the liberal left, which already had a few beefs over unchecked police brutality.

The Republican party is pretty much made up of old, southern, conservative, bible-thumping and probably racist white men (who are scared of what Trump can do to them financially in terms of support.) Given their fear of Trump, they will more than likely pull out all the stops to degrade him and get him to give up, even with the support of Musk (who is pretty much shown his colors that he is a lunatic of the first order, despite the fact that he has done great things in transportation such as Tesla, energy storage, and aerospace travel such as SpaceX.)

Kanye should just shut the fuck up, make music, and continue to bury his face in Trump’s ass. He’s a fucking joke when it comes to politics, and it’s just gonna cause more discord in the political process. Not to mention the fact that he missed the deadline for filing as an independent candidate in six states and filing as a candidate in a major party after the states had held their primaries. Most political pundits just see this as a stunt to take votes away from Biden.

Sheesh, 2020 is really gonna end with a fucking big bang at this point. People call me fucking paranoid for stockpiling survival supplies. I guess that the next few months will tell. Buckle up, boys and girls, this ride is gonna get REALLY bumpy.

FUCK YOU FELLOW WHITE PEOPLE!

Alright, white guilt becoming the next fucking excuse for white people to excuse their latent fucking racism. You know what? I am fucking disgusted because I am white. You fucking racist losers who say you support “black lives matters” because it is a trending topic on Twitter, but cant’s say a fucking word because an unarmed BLACK paramedic was gunned down in her bed because the police “made an error.”

Fuck you fellow white people, you totally fucking disgust me.

Alright, I had this conversation with a friend on Facebook…I love her.

June 5, 2020 (I edited her full name out.)

Dean: What’s next? Brown shirts and jackboots? Just another fucked up week in Dystopian America.

Linda: I have never been a conspiracy theorist – just too many variables/unknowns and most often junk science to boot (which, given the collective IQ of this country, can be peddled successfully more often than not). But no insignia on uniforms? It is valid to believe that they are not affiliated with any legitimate military or police force. So who are they? Where did they come from? WTF???? I am 68 years old and I have never, despite the vague grumblings and resistance movements of one stripe or another, believed that Nazi Germany could be reprised here. I am watching it happen before my very eyes and I am terrified to the point of abject fear. And I know you are too, Dean.

Dean: You’re goddamn right I am terrified. Since the orange haired idiot was elected, I have been feeling an increased state of paranoia. Too many instances of police brutality coming to the forefront, the disjointed messages coming out of 1600 Pennsylvania, the revolving door of people in the administration, and of course the clusterfuck that the pandemic has brought on. And smack dab in the middle of it, that asshole in the White House thumping his flabby chest saying that he is the greatest because the unemployment rate is going down, and saying that the economy has become better. Terrified? fucking A right I am.

And then like an asshole, I went with a Wikipedia entry.  Sinclair Lewis was fucking right.

    Linda: never read it. He was very insightful.

Well, it’s the end of the week and I decided to do another rant, just my usual cranky old man ranting.  I actually try to make some valid points towards the end of the video.  (I actually recorded, edited, and posted this on the 8th, which was yesterday.)

 

Agents of Chaos.

Another day, another video.  This time, I post about the backlash over Mike Pence not wearing a mask when he visited the Mayo Clinic and his “Karen” wife trying to explain it away.

Protestors getting all pissy about stay at home orders to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus.

Religious leaders dying because they ignore the stay at home orders,

And of course, the asshole-in-chief wanting young men and women at a military academy to break the stay at home orders just because he wants a big fucking audience to listen to his lies.

 

Just watch the video, and comment if you wish.

Doing videos again

 

One of the things that have happened to me is because of the Coronavirus outbreak, I have resumed doing videos and posting them to my YouTube Channel, which kind of let fall to the wayside given that I work full time, and usually am too tired (or in the case of Fridays, have been drinking.) The sheer insanity of what has been going on has put a major bug up my ass, and given that I have a very nice camcorder that my hubby got me for Christmas a few years back (a Canon VIXIA that shoots in full 1080 HD video,) I figured that I would charge it up, mount it on my GorillaPod 3X, and cut loose.  I am playing it smart this time though, and only posting videos while I am sober.  That way, I don’t come across looking like a total ass, which if anyone has seen previous videos, shows that I can be a total ass.  So, without further ado, here are my three latest videos:

Clarifying some things.

Let me clarify my previous post. Yes, I am a bit stressed out because of the COVID-19 outbreak. So are other people who are considered “essential” workers. People such as retail workers that work in places that sell food and medicine (Price Chopper/Tops/Wegmans/Walmart/Walgreens.) Public transit workers. First responders such as police officers, firemen/women, and ambulance crews (paramedics/EMTs.) Health care workers have it the worst of all though, given that they are on the front line when it comes to dealing with people who have contracted the coronavirus. I would not be able to handle the shit they have to go through to take care of people, not just coronavirus victims, but the everyday suffering that happens to people. So yes, I am lucky I still have a job, but there are people who have their jobs also, and are at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. Basically, I am apologizing for being a whiny little bitch.

Another Day in Dystopian America.


I am 61, America is in crisis, I still have to work because I am in an “essential” company, and I have to work overtime because of staffing shortages. And people say that I am “lucky” because “you still have a job.” Yes, but the job becomes for stressful when you have to double-up on what needs to be done. Think about that, Dystopian America

 

Grow a brain, America.

Alrighty then…Andrew Cuomo is doing everything that he can to contain COVID-19.

The federal government?  Bupkis.

Trump has EXPERTS telling him what needs to be done, but all he is concerned about is how well he is doing in the polls (which isn’t good, from what I hear.) So he thinks that giving every American family a check for $1000 is doing some good?

Nope, he is trying to polish the turd that his Presidency has become. He is hoping that the $1000 checks will make people WANT to vote for him. It’s bribery, plain and simple, and it is coming out of our tax dollars.

His right-wing supporters will cry “IT’S SOCIALISM!” But those assholes will be the first to line up outside the banks to cash them.

 

Grow up and grow a brain, America
