I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here. But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life–so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can’t justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.
• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it is racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. The choice is yours to make. What will it be?

“LOCK TRUMP UP!” Former President Donald Trump incited a deadly insurrection against the U.S. government, according to Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: “January 6 was a disgrace. American citizens attacked their own government. They used terrorism… Fellow Americans beat and bloodied our own police.  They stormed the Senate floor, they tried to hunt down the Speaker of the House.  They built a gallows and chanted about murdering the Vice President.  They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on earth, because he was angry he had lost an election… There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.  No question about it… This was an intensifying crescendo of conspiracy theories, orchestrated by an outgoing President who seemed determined to either overturn the voters’ decision or else torch our institutions on the way out…” Lock Trump up!

“Former” crack cocaine addict Mike Lindell
The mustachioed CEO of MyPillow, Inc.
Plans for martial law are simply so obscene.
Morgan Wallen & Marjorie Taylor Greene
Are the drunk racist faces of the new GOP.
Yelling the N-word like idiotic neo-Nazis.
Southern fried fools are fascist troglodytes.
Jewish space lasers lighting up the night!
Burn California down says Alan Dershowitz.
If O.J. got off the hook, Trump will for sure.
Trump is so awful, we had to Impeach again!
But fear of violence controls Republicans.
Domestic terrorism all from their own side.
Corrupt Republican Senators let Trump slide.
But really, don’t you think if Jews had lasers
They’d have a target other than California?
I say zap the crap out of tacky Mar-a-Lago!

For Everyone Who’s Suffering.

Our world has changed
And our lives have changed
Like never before and families suffering
Every day and I feel your pain and our
Happiness has gone away and it’s only pain today
Hiding our tears as they fall in the rain
Saying I’m fine when I’m anything but fine
And when will this heartache ever go away
And indeed my skin is on fire
My skin is burning within me and
No more hug’s or kisses today it’s
Just sadness for the world today
Coronavirus coronavirus is here
And it’s taken so many loved ones away
And loneliness really hurts you
It kills you deep inside and
I’m lost without you in my life and
The world has changed so much
Coronavirus not going away
And darkness surrounds the world
And it’s so cold and painful
And our warm hugs
Have all faded away
Just like our loved every day
And nobody to hold more and I watch
As a lonely tear rolls down my face
But I promise you all I’ll love
And pray for everyone
Who’s suffering from coronavirus
Every day.

“THE ENEMY IS WITHIN”

Is the pro-pandemic, genocidal GOP still the party of the defeated, deranged racist traitor Donald Trump? Or is the Republican Party now following the fanatical footsteps of that other infamous homicidal American politician Dan White, the crazy ex-cop who murdered San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk?

Actually, FOX News’ favorite fresh fascist face Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) appears to conveniently enough be the political combination of Donald Trump and Dan White – a pathologically dishonest, crackpot QAnon conspiracy theorist whose hatred is clearly putting her on the path of political assassination and domestic terrorism.  Marjorie is a violent psycho! 

But the tangerine tyrant Trump says Greene is “a future Republican Star”.  Here’s a suggestion for you neo-Nazi Republicans: next time you attempt a domestic terrorist takeover, hijacking the federal government with hateful hillbillies is probably not the most effective approach. No “Twinkie defense” for Trump.

Donald Trump is a CROOK! All of you who voted for him have been snooked and deceived by his LIES, yes, he lies every time he opens his mouth. He lied about being a smart businessman when, in fact, he failed in all his business ventures, lost hundreds of millions of dollars that he inherited from his father, is in debt up to his ears, lied about the virus, “Just floating away”, He cheated on you, yeah, he cheated on you!! It’s about time you realized, Trump and Fox News (?) LIE TO YOU every day, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Steve Doocy and the rest of the Fox gang have been feeding you misinformation and lies every day and you have fallen, hook, line and sinker for those lies. Now Trump is trying to convince you that he won the election !! Be honest: HE LOST!! The lack of federal leadership has caused thousands of Americans to lose their lives because Trump LIED. He had no plan to fight the virus, he surrounded himself with incompetent people, and when someone tried to tell him the truth, he would fire them !!! Thousands of Americans should have been saved if we had someone in the White House who really cared about Americans – Donald Trump doesn’t care! Remember, He doesn’t care about you or any other American, He only cares about Himself! Remember this, at 12:01 PM, on January 20, 2021, Donald Trump will spend all of his time with lawyers trying to keep him out of Jail!!
