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.

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:

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.

Isn’t this how the first Resident Evil movie started?

About the whole bullshit about the COVID-19 (aka the Corona Virus.)

One: I wash my hands after I piss and/or shit.

Two: I cover my mouth and nose when I sneeze, and if I am near a sink and soap, I wash my hands.

Three: I am not obsessive-compulsive about using hand sanitizer (but I will do so if I am not near a sink and soap.)

Four: I do not listen to the bullshit coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth about the Corona Virus.

Five: I do listen to what the WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have to say.

Excuse the fuck out of me for using logic and filtering out the tin-foil hat conspiracy bullshit that is permeating the Internet in general

(and Facebook and Twitter to be specific.)

Grow up and grow a brain, America

The American Clusterfuck

 

foxfriendsasskiss

 

You know, I am really getting sick of a few things.

 

1: People reposting articles from the past to Facebook without any context. If you feel that the article has relevance in the now, PROVIDE SOME FUCKING CONTEXT.

2: The incessant postings of right-wing bullshit that has been proven to be lies e.g. the economy is great because of Trump. The economy was doing quite well during the Obama administration, and now it is going into the tank because Trump is getting into a pissing match by imposing tariffs on some of our largest trading partners. Ask a farmer in the midwest how well he doing because of Trump. I fucking dare you.

3: The whole pissing match with Iran. We had an agreement in place along with numerous European nations to limit Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The one thing that Trump does when he gets into office is break that agreement BECAUSE IT HAPPENED WHEN OBAMA WAS IN OFFICE. Now, we have tankers being bombed, drones being shot down, and a President taking us to the brink and then pulling back. The hawks in his administration (mainly Pompeo and Bolton) have a major hardon for starting wars in order to impose their fascist view of a new world order. And they have a perfect patsy in the form of Donald Trump. He is so enamored with himself that the only reason he does things now is to get praise from Fox News and other right-leaning news outlets. He has no interest in world peace. The only reason that he does things now is to burnish the shine on the turd that his presidency has become.

4: Claiming “immunity” or “White House Privilege” when being called to testify before Congress. The most recent example was with Kellyanne Conway being called to testify before the House Oversight Committee over her repeated violations of The Hatch Act, which she dismissed with the quote “Blah, blah blah. If you’re trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it’s not going to work,” and the White House saying that it was a violation of her First Amendment rights. Bitch, shut that wrinkled old pie-hole of a mouth, sit the fuck down, and fucking testify. When you violate the law, you have to explain yourself.

5: 20+ FUCKING CANDIDATES FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020? Hey you assholes, lets muddy the political waters even further. Yes, Barack Obama came out of left field to win the Presidency in 2008, but all you Democratic wannabees need to sit the fuck down and let it shake out between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. They are the only two who stand any chance of denying Trump a second term in office, and you idiots who are tossing your hats in are doing one thing, just making a big pile of fucking hats. Stay out of the big political sandbox until you have gotten a few years behind you and are able to make a real difference. Warren and Sanders have many more years of experience behind them, and are better able to deal with the shit that is going to be flung at them by the apes in the Republican zoo that Washington has become.

 

Enough of the old man ranting, I need to drop a grogan.

Alright. Anthony Bourdain killed himself. Kate Spade killed herself. Robin Williams killed himself, Kurt Cobain killed himself. Yes, it is tragic that talented people chose to take their own lives, but what about the rest of the people who choose to die at their own hands? Like the ones who are bullied in school? The transgendered who are shamed and ridiculed? The ones who are terminally ill and choose not to be a burden on their loved ones? Where is your sympathy for them? Why aren’t you there for them?

Excuse me for being a total asshole about this, but there are so many suicides here in the United States alone, and nobody gives a shit about them, but a celebrity offs themselves, and the news services are creaming themselves over it. The little people who suicide…well the only publicity they get is through social media. I would rather mourn the little people who thought that there was no one for them to help them through their problems.
