Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away? – Ripley (Aliens, 1986)
Unfortunately, this is a question I ask myself everyday since after the Election. The more I see how Trump supporters are outing themselves for the misled minions of a mutant Cheeto with a toupee, the more I wonder how far has the national IQ dropped. People, Idiocracy wasn’t supposed to be a documentary of what is to come, but rather a funny movie. No longer is it funny. It’s depressing because the very aspects of the culture of Idiocracy is becoming more prevalent these days than ever before. Trumps election to the head seat of the United States just proves how close we are to an Idiocratic dystopia.
I leave you, my wonderful readers, with this example of anti-science rhetoric we will most likely have to deal with for four years. Buckle up, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!
It’s always funny to see Christians talk about persecution especially when they were last persecuted around 300 CE. Afterwards, they were the ones rampaging and persecuting against pagans for centuries. Now, they’re pulling the victim card while stating that “we need to get back to our Christian roots with Christian public school education.” Sorry to say, but theocracies don’t work out as they plan. Instead of providing Heaven on Earth, it becomes Hell on Earth when people believe they are doing “Gods” work. YOu can’t state you are for liberty and freedom while calling for the 10 Commandments to be the rule of the land. Commandment #1 especially puts a halt on that whole idea of freedom and liberty. If people aren’t given the right to believe in one God, many Gods or no Gods, then you don’t have freedom, you have tyranny.
Wild Bill for America is the prime example of one of those supposedly freedom loving Americans who deep down want a theocracy even though he denies such. When you vociferously call for Christian “education” in public schools and want the 10 Commandments to be the law of the land, I believe that’s proof enough of wanting a Christian theocracy in charge of our country.
With the ascendancy of the Trump Presidency, we ought to be vigilant about what takes place in the United States. How far will Trump pander to the evangelicals who helped him into power? If he wants to retain his position in American politics, it’s not inconceivable that Trump will do what it takes to keep his power. So, it’s up to us Americans to make sure that the swing to extremism doesn’t occur.
Jill Stein for President, some Libertarian for either Senate or House, and for local government I wrote in Aleister Crowley, Ragnar Lodbrock and myself. I kept true to my plan of NOT voting for ANY of the Kleptocrat party or commonly known individually as the Democrat and Republican parties.
Of course, there will plenty of people saying that I wasted my vote today. No, I didn’t. I voted based on my conscience rather than the rehashed nonsense of voting for the “lesser of two evils”. If more people surpassed that mentality, we would have more Third Parties in seats of government today. However, the Republicans and Democrats work in tandem to make sure that Third Party voices, such as Jill Stein, be drowned out. In fact, both Obama and Romney in 2012 both had NOTHING to say when Jill Stein was arrested for demanding that she be able to debate the Kleptocrats. She has that right as do ALL Third Parties have that right to debate the Kleptocrats on the issues at hand. This is why real change will never occur until people in this country change their mindset from lesser of two evils to Third Parties can create that change.
So come 2020, we’ll see if more people wake up instead of slumber peacefully ignoring the Kleptocrats stranglehold on power in the United States. The more ignorant people remain, the longer the hold on power is. Unfortunately, my optimism 8 years ago has waned. Now, pessimism reigns supreme as I watch people debase themselves with classless acts like booing a candidate they dislike on their way to vote to out and out violence or threats there of. Maybe, just maybe I’ll pleasantly surprised, but I’m not counting on it.
May the Gods keep our country peaceful during this heated time.
What a joke this election turned into. It became a clash of oligarchical titans spewing venom into each others faces as opposed telling us why we should vote for them. Instead, it has been an admittance by each person that they are horrible people, but a vote in their favor would be better than a vote for the bigger of two evils. I personally don’t support either one of these people. My vote tomorrow will go to Jill Stein of the Green Party. I’d rather rather vote with my conscience rather than for “the lesser of two evils” which, in my humble opinion, are the same type of evil we strive daily to stay away from.
Trump (Herr Drumpf)
What’s wrong with this picture? Why it’s Trump and the Clintons together at Trumps wedding in 2005. For people so diametrically opposed to each other the Clintons sure had no problems hamming it up with Trump. If we can condemn Donald Rumsfelds picture with Saddam Hussein, then we can apply the same logic here. These two are playing a game with the American people and no matter who wins, this country is in trouble.
Sure, you say, that picture proves nothing other than that wealthy hang out with each other a lot. However, on May of 2015, Bill Clinton phoned Donald Trump and stated this:
Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape.
Moreover, Trump has donated plenty of times to the Clintons and their foundation. If that shit don’t reek, well you’re aren’t smelling hard enough.
More evidence that Trump is nothing more than a shill to pave the way for Hillary is that Liberal billionaire, George Soros, has helped Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper
Once again, someone so diametrically opposed to Trump has in some way been involved with Trump, but the powers that be want you forget about all of that. The so-called Conservatives who support Trump are those who will also responsible for putting Hillary into power.
I seriously don’t need to go into the specifics as to why Hillary is unfit for Presidency. Benghazi, email mishandling, the sabotaging of Bernie Sanders campaign, the scandals with the Clinton Foundation (you know that one I just told you Donald Trump donated to) and many other probable scandals.
And where does this end up? Well this picture sums up it up perfectly. At what point in our nations history do we stop voting for “the lesser evil” and actually become brave enough to vote for a third party candidate. I’m tired of the same two parties with the same solutions for everything being elected, so for the first time since I’ve been a voter I’m voting straight third party and if there happens to be no third party candidate then I’m writing in a name, namely Ragnar Lodbrock. A viking can do better in politics than these two false hopes running currently. They have nothing to offer the American people, but as I always say, when the shit hits the fan in this country and one of these useless piles of garbage runs this country into the ground, you get what you voted for. You gave in to the shit slinging and even participated in it by puffing your chest out and saying you know better. Well, no one knows a damn thing. If you did, you’d vote third party.
Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka 2016 for President!
Hated… time and time again
Force fed, suppress senseless fear of difference
True self suppression, hollow dreams of misery
Blind wish to see
Indifference to be
Freedom, expressionless bouts of legislation
True self repression, take a stance of fall to your needs
Corrupt in the system
Laws bent to other needs
God fearing idiocy
Ignore just pleas
Blind wish to see
Indifference to be
Ruling powers be
Never really free
by The Germs (Darby Crash, Pat Smear)
The news media are like a pack of sharks circling around waiting for their first sniff of blood in the water. When that blood does seep into the water, the mere thought of a ratings bonanza sends them into frenzy attacking whatever has spilled that blood. This is what we are seeing whenever Trump says something way out in left field. I personally can’t stand Trump. I think he is a phony and a crook. However, I don’t believe he’s stupid as everyone wants to pretend that he is. In fact, I see a very intelligent man who knows how to work the media to do his bidding. Ask yourself this, how do you keep the headlines with your name in it? Establish controversy by saying something so off the wall that the media can’t ignore it. This guy knows the media well since he’s been in it so many times before. He knows how to work the media to keep the limelight on him at all times and thus keeping it off Hillary (unless it’s negative then he lets it be).
I believe the news media is the reason why Trump is, so far, a success. Yes, I blame the media for putting Trump to the forefront of everything. I can’t turn on CNN, MSNBC, FOX or any other news station without being bombarded by Trumps Cheeto tan, raccoon eyes, and ridiculous toupee. I’ve boycotted all news channels because of this. If the media is so inclined to bashing Trump, why are they ignoring the fact that they are giving free air time each time he says something crazy? I seriously doubt the Liberal lean of news media and that what interests them more are ratings rather than political persuasion. If indeed the news media wants to crush Trump then they need only to stop being played by him. We know, though, that they won’t…strike that….they CAN’T resist throwing the limelight on him because, like any addict, they need that ratings fix that is induced by the majority of people who are thrown into a seething anger whenever Trump is mentioned.
This is the media blitz, folks, and it’s tearing our country apart with divisiveness and half truths. Everyone who hasn’t the time to research everything said by every politician simply parrot what the chosen interpretation of a news blurb whether it’s from Trump instigating foreign hackers or the misconstrued idea of “death panels” contained within a healthcare reform legislation. The media tells us what they want us to believe rather than objectively stating the news of the day. Objectivity in the news is long gone and probably will never resurrect from the dead.
I believe it’s every Americans right to arm themselves especially in a world so inclined towards violence. I believe also that we need to use the laws that we already have on the books to make sure that people are safe from gun violence.
I think it’s sexist to tell a woman to use a whistle in the event that she’s about to be assaulted. Women especially should be able to conceal carry a gun as an alternative to the whistle method that anti-Second Amendment would want. Their emotional plea for a gun free society is selfish in that it establishes that since they don’t have gun nor need one that no one else should. Now, there are those who seem anti-gun, but aren’t. Those folks simply want gun laws that protect people from gun violence. In fact, my wife has thought (more so lately with the insanity we’re seeing around the world and in our country) about going through the lengthy process of getting a gun and I can’t blame her. I absolutely support her in doing so. When I can’t be with her at all times, I believe it’s imperative that she keep herself safe whatever way possible. She’s not dumb nor irresponsible so it goes without saying that she would do fine owning a gun.
Those who wish to limit access to guns want to blatantly trample on the Constitution, be my guest because I can guarantee that a majority of Americans are pro-Second Amendment especially witnessing the horrors of the 20th Century when fascist/communist governments disarmed their people in order to have absolute control over the people. What limits should be placed on gun ownership should be a dialog opened up between those want to limits gun ownership and those who don’t. It needs to be civil and without condescending remarks. Without this criteria in place nothing will happen that will appeal to both sides of the aisle.
A lot of discussion has been had about this movie and most of it tends to hit on the issue of gender in the movie. There are people who call those who speak out against it as sexist while those who speak out against t blame PC, feminism. I find both arguments to be ridiculous and misses something that’s endemic in Hollywood these days: the reboot of older movies. What’s coming out of Hollywood are mostly reboots due to the probability that Hollywood is afraid of investing in original stories. The only reboot that I believe was done excellent are the Star Trek movies. JJ Abrams made that his movie franchise by totally overhauling the timeline in the beginning of the first movie. However, the other reboots have tried to retell the story but tragically failed. I have yet to see the new Ghostbusters reboot and unlike the hate mongers on both sides of the argument (over a damn movie mind you) my gripe is not that the storyline isn’t consistent with the originals (ie: the women being the children of the original Ghostbusters which would’ve really cool) nor is it the fact that it has women taking the roles of what has been male for most of the franchise (which is not a bad thing, women need role models that aren’t anorexic, bimbos who aren’t truly empowered). No, none of that bothers me, it’s the rebooting of a franchise to begin with. It shows a lack of fortitude by Hollywood to take a chance on an original story/movie and it shows that imagination in Hollywood is dwindling to mere regurgitation of old movies.
And for those who are making this political, just stop….it’s a movie. There are bigger problems to deal with such as having two criminals running for President this year.
