    • Seven Rules for Running a Real Left-wing Government
      (With the Bolivian coup overthrown, back to the top.  I’ve noticed this is the article of mine front-line activists refer to most.  Originally published May 16, 2016.) So, we have had a right-wing coup in Brazil. In Venezuela, the left still controls the Presidency, but has lost control of parliament. In Argentina, the right has […]

Two things about Trump

His ugliness makes him hateworthy.

I think we are all a little hesitant about saying that. Hate feels impolite. You’re not supposed to hate someone. But some people are so unworthy of any respect whatsoever that they need to be taken out of power as soon as possible. Impeachment might be quicker. I’d go with quicker at this point.

Trump is capricious, dangerous, careless, cruel and there’s one more thing I’ll get to in a minute.

Last night, as I was dozing off, I heard some asshole Republican going at Chris Hayes, shoving Trump down his throat saying something to the effect, “He’s your president whether you like it or not and he’s going to be president for another four more years”. Now I wasn’t watching this fanatic’s face when he made this offensive statement but I can almost imagine his thighs shaking and sweating as he made this comment. Rage and defiance and ecstasy all rolled into one.

I would caution Republican asshole to not get too ahead of himself.

He’s counting on the electoral college to re-elect Trump or some additional Russian help.

But Trump allegedly won in 2016 with Pennsylvania and Florida. And I’m not so sure he can count on those states this time.

We outnumber you, Republican politician. Like Union vs Confederacy outnumber you. At best, Trump’s support is at 41%. You can wag your dicks at us all you want but in the end, our numbers are solidifying. We loathe this man. And we are not ashamed of saying it.

The second thing we know about Trump is that he is weak.

He doesn’t know how to negotiate. He pounds the table, issues demands and blames people. Maybe that’s what the Trumpers wanted but he’s up against a brick wall because he doesn’t have the capacity to make better deals. So, you guys who are holding your breaths for a better immigration deal where you can treat human beings like shit because it makes you feel good better enjoy that feeling now.

If you don’t get what you want, you bring the condemnation of the world upon you.

If you do get what you want, you’d better shut the fuck up about immigration.

Do you think Trump has any incentive to solve this immigration crisis that he has singlehandedly created? No. If he solves is, what can he make you all hard about? Who will he take on next? What line will you let him cross next?

But that’s all he’s got. Beating up on little kids who can’t fight back. That’s what you’re getting all excited about. A big powerful man making children dirty, miserable and susceptible to disease in unsanitary detention centers.

Big guy. Ooooo, big, stupid, mean guy. Picking on children. Because he can.

You don’t even get any pay out for that. Nothing is being done to prevent employers from hiring illegals. Are we fining them? Putting them out of business? Of course not. Where would Trump get his own workers for his resorts?

He’s also weak on Iran. He tore up a perfectly serviceable agreement that the world signed onto. For what reason?

There was no reason to do this. He brought us to the brink of war and at the last second pulled out of it.

He did that because he’s weak. He knows it. There was only bluster to satisfy a few of the thigh shakers. If he put the rest of us at risk by bringing international sanctions against the US, that would have shown just how weak he is. Plus, we wouldn’t have even one single ally on our side going into Iran. That’s why he pulled out. He couldn’t risk the injury to his image, his supreme humiliation that the world does NOT respect us anymore and especially doesn’t respect HIM. He’s already a colossal failure.

A completely, ignorant, lumbering fool of a failed “commander in Chief”. And he’s WEAK. He has no stamina.

He’s out. Forget about a second term. It’s going to be a bloodbath electorally for Republicans next year. You think you’re filled with fury and rage?

Just wait.
