Blackish star Anthony Anderson had this to say about Kanye's announcement: "Wow, President Kanye. That's right—Yeezy wants to be Preezy and you know, laugh all you want, but this would be historic because, while this country has had a Black president, we've never had a crazy Black president."

The actor continued, "It should be pointed out that Kanye still has to register with the Federal Election Commission, collect enough signatures to get on the ballot, create a campaign platform and he's already missed the deadline to file as an independent candidate in a bunch of states. But other than that," Anderson concluded, "he good."

The Republican Govenors who stuck to Trump like a wet tongue to dry ice are now beggining to peel off as the results of the Trump folly of reopening ASAP has turned into the greatest out break of Covid on Earth.
Texas, Florida and others are reversing course but stopping and reversing are quick for trains and cruise ships when compared to entire states in an exponential pandemic.

I think Trump has exceeded Picketts charge at Gettysburg as far as folly and tradgedy goes.

Next I think that it will turn out that the country has accelerated its liberating trends in the Tr*mp administration. Because of the current occupant we've seen much more desecration of Confederate erstwhile idols and their battleflag.

There's something about having an oaf in office that makes you just want to pour water on a burning cross...

I don't think this would be the case if Hilary had won. I think Nascar would still have the flag and Washington R-skins would not be considering a name change. On the other hand, would there be thousands more Americans alive? Very likely...

HOW FAR WE HAVE COME

Bill Frederick

When our fathers came to this golden land
There was nothing but forests and rivers and sand
And a few million Indians running around
Now look what we've made of the little they found

Theyre's cities of silver that shine in the night
Churches of splendor and halls of delight
And only an echo of Indian drums
Who can deny how far we have come

The slave ships they came with the whip and the rack
And a million black people with scars on their back
Picked cotton, drew water, and slept in the cold
With a bible for comfort they were happy and cold

The laws they were passed, slavery went
Our lives integrated at least six percent
In the sharecroppers shack and the big city slum
Who can deny how far we have come

The immigrants came from the green Irish shore
From Poland and Russia, ten million and more
Germany, Italy, all the world round
To settle our ghettos and immigrant towns

Their brains and their bodies they put to the wheel
To build our great factories and towers of steel
To march to our battles and carry our guns
Who can deny how far we have come

Now all through the Andes, they've heard of our name
On the factory wall, in the palace of shame
They drink Coca Cola and the times that they spend
Goes straight to the pockets of our businessmen

To pay for our Fords, and our split level homes
Our Hi-Fis and records and six percent loans
Our profits protected with dictators guns
Who can deny how far we have come

In Asia and Africa, they're learning too
How free enterprise can do wonders for you
South Africas prisons are bursting with men
Barbed wire keeps the Vietnamese in

Where elections are daydreams that never get far
American weapons are there standing guard
We're ready to fight for the lands that we run
Who can deny how far we have come

Our fears they are many though they're seldom saved
They're black and they're yellow and they're brown and they're red
They see through the legend, they smell the decay
They're learning to fight the American way

And we in our armchairs are quick to condemn
Our bankbooks are falling, our profits might end
The breaking of change is our funeral hum
Who can deny how far we have come

When our fathers came to this golden land
There was nothing but forests and rivers and sand
And a few million Indians running around
Now look what we've made of the little they found

Theyre's cities of silver that shine in the night
Churches of splendor and halls of delight
And only an echo of Indian drums
Who can deny how far we have come

It might help if people educated themselves on people who stutter. Good article on stuttering by a stutterer interviewing Joe Biden

The Atlantic January/February 2020 (Emma) Alpern told me that she’s on a group text with other stutterers who regularly discuss Biden, and that it’s been “frustrating” to watch the media portray Biden’s speech impediment as a sign of mental decline or dishonesty. “Biden allows that to happen by not naming it for what it is,” she said, though she’s not sure that his presidential candidacy would benefit if he were more forthcoming. “I think he’s dug himself into a hole of not saying that he still stutters for so long that it would strike people as a little weird.”

All the world’s a hoax,
And all the men and women merely minions;
They have their firing and their hiring;
And the best man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms;
And then the winning school-boy, with his ball
And shining morning face, the greatest of the great
school is purchased. And then Cassenova,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his prostitites’ ear. Then a cadet soldier,
Full of strange oaths, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,Seeking the Epstien reputation
Even in the liars mouth. And then the injustice,
In fair round belly filled with fast food,
With eyes severe and hair of surgical cut,
Full of wise guys and modern instances;
And so he plays his TV part. The sixth age shifts
Into the statue of President.
With no mask on nose and a pouch a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his mocking voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
His second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

I don't know which lies are more effective anymore but there are more extreme prevarications arriving more often. To even respond to them is a participation in the stagecraft of the absurd. 'Minds will be boggled but not changed at this point'.
The power of real raw self interest of Democrats and Republicans will be the driving force from now on, and that outcome is partially up to you despite the dumpster fires and suppressions.

The Pense Pandemic Task Force:

By doing nothing, a few people will get sick and die. This is our amazing and successful official policy in the US which is now passing its earlier all time high infection rate. We're #1. Remember " we must not make the cure worse than the disease". So we open early, force certain workers into infection chambers at work, roll back testing and contact tracing, have unmasked political gatherings inside and by not supporting people who are unemployed. Go to crowded events and party. People are saying that those who die are already old or black... wink wink nudge nudge know what I mean?

We must even decide if we should try to save those who weakly decide to succumb to the virus at all if there are not enough beds, PPE or medical treatments.
We must not make treatment worse than the effect on the economy!
So go ahead and take no personal responsibility. DO NOT WEAR A MASK.
Be a fancy free Steve. You don't have to chant 'Lets do nothing' but just be sure to take no social respondsibility.
Not caring for the sick and dieing is easier than it sounds. It is the last viral intrusion on our lives. All that wasted money is saved. WE DON'T NEED TO BURY THE DEAD. Body removal has been shown to work best with ovens. Gas is cheap now, so take a flight and smirk. That reciculated air in a hypo baric pressure tube is less dangerous than an infected TSA agent. You can even take a cruise at half price.
Make life cheap again! {^/ PRAY PRAY PREY

I watched a documentary on the "National Enquirer" and in the closing stages - even ex-staff were agog at the overt political bias in the 2016 election. And the closing text said:

"In 2018, federal prosecutors granted immunity to David Pecker and AMI for admitting the company made illegal payments to influence the 2016 presidential election"

And the programme had already delineated the connection between Pecker and Trump. If I remember rightly, Trump was a director of one of the AMI companies.

Yes, it is a shit publication, but influential, particularly to its demographic.

NY held its primary yesterday. AOC has won the primary for her seat in a Blue district. Other results are notyet reported due to slow counting of absentee ballots.
Lady Hillary and I have mailed in our NJ absentee ballots, checked off for Sanders. We know that Biden has won the nomination. Having said that, Sanders' delegate representation at the [virtual] convention will give him input on the platform.
Trump is doing a wonderful job of shooting himself in the tongue. I sent a not to Biden HQ suggesting that, if Agent Orange does his usual incoherent job in the first debate, they should move to eliminate the other two out of pity for both Trump and the public.
Trump wants more debates but that would be a total waste of the public airwaves.

Thomas Frank talk at Kansas City Public Library

I hour long, I haven't got to the end of it, but what I get from him is:

1) The Democrats have shifted emphasis from the blue collar workers of FDR and the depression to the winners - the lawyers, lecturers, Doctors, PhDs etc classes,

2) the Republicans have stolen the phrases of the FDR era and make Trump look like working class (huh?).

The image that came to me was a graph of the US political scenery, with Repubs Right, Democrats on the left, but there is a vertical dimension (aka money), where the democrats have moved up-market. Trump has mined the under-belly that the Dems have not talked to with enough conviction.

Maggie Thatcher did much the same. She appealed to the working class Tories. Go figure.

last night on UK TV Channel 5 - Henry VIII & Trump: History repeating?

The premise was to compare the similarities. Yea Yea there are differences, but the similarities will alarm you.

1) Second son, inherited by the death of elder brother. Tries harder to prove himself.
2) Married his mistress as second trophy wife and it didn't go well.
3) First wife demonstrated power/success to outshine husband. Ego couldn't take it.
4) Tyrannical, ruthless hiring/firing often, eg beheading/jailing.
5) recruited from below establishment tier of advisers, yes men, beholden!
6) tore up the rule book. Messy chaotic decision making.
7) throws so many curve balls no-one can deal with them all, confuses everyone.
8) countered print/cyber criticisms as treason/fake news. Uses the technology of the day to promulgate his vituperation - print/twitter.
9) Philanderer/lothario.
10) Trump's 47th birthday party invite showed a picture of him on a throne, sword in hand, girl at feet. Holbein painted Henry to emphasise his power, towering over family. Ego personified.

Now the extrapolation:

Henry 8 left a power vacuum behind that descended into in-fighting and rapid switches. And (get this) the pundits looked to Queen Liz 1 and then to Ivanka and compared their strategies. And the strap line was:
as bizzare as it sounds, but don't bet against Ivanka being the first female president".

Many thought Twitler wouldn't get there! We are living in interesting times!
