WE’RE WITH STUPID

The Big Lead

The Big Lead

SHOCK, SURPRISE… and may all crystal balls be damned! What have we done? Welcome to the new… DIVIDED STATES of AMERICA! Vladimir Puten couldn’t be happier—unless perhaps he was FBI director James Comey?

Thus ends election night 2016 to be forever referred to now as… “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Our nation was told—and by “So Called” experts—that the toss-up states of Florida, Michigan, and the new-founded state of DONALDSOTA would likely vote Clinton.

But as the night wore on, and EVERY toss up state began creeping into Donald Trump’s victory column, Hillary Clinton voters all but disappeared, and not just in one or two key states—BUT IN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM! Did they all forget to go to the polls?

AMAZING? Try SUSPICIOUS.

Now we’d all had been warned that possible tampering with the Presidential election might be attempted by outside cyber attacks, but that we Americans shouldn’t worry, that our crack security experts were on top of it.

Psst…Edward Snowden knows all about them too.

Is it possible the experts forgot to mention that little warning to Vladimir Putin, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, or maybe even Kim Jong- Un?

All I know is, now it seems those (so called) know-it-alls all seem to be at a loss as to how to explain this totally unreasonable, illogical, and absolutely ridiculous outcome.

And what will ever become of our good neighbors to the north, the Canadians, what with their immigration site crashing?

Will they ever be able to erect A WALL in time to keep out all those American refugees?  I mean… THAT’S HALF A DAMN NATION COMING THEIR WAY!

Or is it… a damned nation?

This morning half of all Americans awoke to being called, TRUMPICANS.

For some crazy reason the word RIGGED keeps ringing in my ears—only now the shoe appears to be on the other foot. So many prognosticators GOT IT WRONG, dare we say… ALL OF THEM!

Will Hillary Clinton be the first person—in the world’s newest third world country—to be put before America’s new WALL to face a firing squad? Will Hillary grace the cover of Time Magazine standing in front of Donald’s wall, wearing a bandana with a cigarette dangling from her lower lip, as an ARA backed firing squad takes aim?

And what of CHANGE, what’s that?

Seems most of the incumbents remain in place. The obstructionist—better known as the do nothing congress—not only remain in power… BUT APPEAR TO HAVE BECOME EVEN MORE POWERFUL!

The Republicans not only control the Presidency but also the House and Senate too! Dare we expect anything other than a new supreme court justice (supposedly a non-political position) leaning Republican as well?

Hard to imagine this was what the American voter meant when they said they wanted CHECKS AND BALANCES. Maybe the voters were kidding?

Is there a great hatred in the underbelly of this country? Probably. A less than HIDDEN racial divide? No doubt. Possibly NO NATIONAL HEALTHCARE? Go to Vegas and bet on it!

It’s entirely possible that the servitude of the poor to the rich is about to become even greater now. See working three jobs to makes ends meet may not be enough now folks. Do I hear four jobs?

But don’t worry, there’s a silver lining. Now you’ll get to move up into a new tax bracket—and still not make ends meet!

Getting out the vote doesn’t appear to have worked for the MAJORITY of most Americans? After all, Clinton lost in the Electoral College but carried the popular vote. Minority rules? That’s just wrong. (Sound familiar? Reference Al Gore)

Donald Trump as President? Would you want someone doing your taxes who’s hadn’t trained for doing your taxes—say nothing of not having reported any? Yet, that sounds awfully similar to what has happened here. So what do we do now?

HOPE… that’s what. HOPE… that last allie of the HOPELESS.

HOPE TO GOD the aliens—or whatever powers that be—knew exactly what they were doing when they put “The Donald” into the most powerful office in all the land.

Because as a nation, there’s no way we could have possibly been stupid enough to have done this to ourselves, right?

If so… WE MIGHT JUST BE ONE VERY SAD STUPID GROUP OF PEOPLE.

Then again… “The  Donald” did give a very gracious acceptance speech, right?

Still one wonders… like Robert Redford’s character did right after he won the election at the end of the film, “The Candidate”…

Need Vs Want

Have you ever noticed how we never really get what we want, only what we need? We’re always left wanting something better. It’s like our current presidential election.

Here we’ve been given a couple of candidates from our two largest party’s (as if any other party stood a chance of ever getting noticed) from which to choose a president…

AND STILL WE WANT SOMEONE BETTER!

You would think that in a country as big as ours, there would be a much better pool of candidates from which to choose, right?

Is it too much to ask for a candidate who looks similar to (you can fill in the blank, since beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but who also has the brains of an Albert Einstein or a Judit Polgar.

I fear we’ve become like those women in the television commercials from some years ago.

Remember? They’d receive this beautiful watch as a loving gift, and then proceed to express disappointment by saying, “Well yes it’s a great watch (NOT), but what I really wanted was a Longines.”

What? You mean the Christian Dior is not good enough for you?

Only, we’re not getting anything quite the caliber of a Christian Dior here—no, not for this election. Maybe a watch you’d find in a box of Rice Krispies, perhaps. But a Citizen Eco-Drive?

Uh… no.

You see, it’s just not good enough to NEED something anymore, when what we really WANT… is something better.

Take for example: wanting a new car. But not just any car… a brand new Maserati! (Whaddya say, honey?)

Or let’s say your wife has recently told you that your nuts and need a new brain. Hey, what a coincidence! Anyway, you contact Princeton and inquire about purchasing Einstein’s.

A new washer and dryer? Sure, but can it come with someone who’ll do my stinky laundry too—and for free! Admit it, who wouldn’t want a million dollars? But then again, a billion dollars sounds even better.

Yes, I’d like to look like a Greek god, but I guess I’ll just have to settle for looking like George Clooney, instead. (Hey, why all the laughter?)

And think back to that Christmas morning when we were all kids. There our gifts sat under the tree. We couldn’t wait to tear through all the wrapping paper for that one toy that we’d yearned for all year long. Only to unwrap it and find… we gotten clothes, instead.

You thought to yourself: Is this somebody’s idea of a bad joke?

And that’s just like this presidential election. Here we are stuck having to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Dan of the Day

Are you kidding me? Please say it ain’t so?

See, what we really want (demand actually) is another choice for president. Surely there must be someone else from which to choose? Someone stable and not prone to speaking without thinking first. Someone who is honest and upright.

A politician? Ha, ha, ha! Yeah right. (dripping with sarcasm)

Come to think about it, though, maybe all those women wanting a Longines for Christmas wasn’t all that selfish a desire, after all.

Not when you put it in the context of what we’re all about to wind up with for a president come this January.
