The United States of Idiocracy

The nation seems to be devolving right before our eyes, with Trump fans shutting down highways and doing everything in their power to intimidate voters. Worse yet, Trump is actively praising these efforts, these brainless twits who would gladly see the destruction of this nation. Jeff has written his final post before the election and he echoes my sentiments almost perfectly. Thanks so much, Jeff! Here’s to a better future 🥂

On The Fence Voters

Idiocracy – Disparaging term for a society run by or made up of idiots (or perceived as such).

In just the last few days, some news put an exclamation point on why this election is the most important in modern history. The radicalization of a particular segment of our population — the sheer idiocy of their movement — must be soundly defeated and put away forever.

*On a Texas highway, a caravan of the Trump cult appears to try and run off the road a Biden/Harris campaign bus. The current president praised the ‘people of Texas’ for how much they love him. No condemnation of the incident as of this writing.

*Another caravan of wild and radicalized Trumpers attempted to block traffic on the Garden State Parkway Sunday afternoon near Lakewood, NJ. Their Vehicles were decorated with American flags, Trump campaign flags, and many supporters with MAGA hats. Another caravan…

  1. We’re getting close to the return of reason and humanity. Be ready to celebrate and be ready to try and promote unity. But, if you can’t why not consider letting the ‘South’ and all the Un-American Trumpsters create their own country and see how far their lack of empathy, lack of humanity gets them in the World.

    • The name of the country, the “United States …” is an anomaly, for we are more disunited now than ever before. I’d happily opt for letting the South take its toys and become a separate country, but I’m sure the idea wouldn’t fly and would lead to an all-new Civil War, only this one fought with far more sophisticated weapons than the simple tools of the 1860s, would lead to far more devastation than we already see. Sigh. This too shall pass …. this too shall pass … this too shall pass …

    • I hear you talking brother, trouble is that would make him a martyr and would only raise the ire of those who put him there to commit like acts.
      Trump is and ever was but a symptom of something which has been roiling and boiling in the USA since the late 1970s. An affliction which every nation suffers at some time in its existence. Currently the Right is doing all the intimidating and violence, there comes a time when the other sides decides to take the battle to them. Each day the USA is stepping closer to that and the results will not be pretty or tidy. They never are.
      History knows.

      • As always, Roger, you are right. Sigh. It would just be so lovely never to hear his whingeing voice again, never to see his ugly mug. But it would make him a martyr and when those who put him there regrouped and found a new ‘hero’, that person would be a shoo-in, no questions asked. Likely it would be one of Trump’s kids, too.

                • Here we are Jill. Just for you. This came to me yesterday after I posted that reply to you.
                  It’s a ‘mash-up, resulting my Spotify Playlist, Writing Fantasy and the USA political scene. Featuring a version of your good self.
                  1. Setting the Scene

                  2. The adaption::
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  (adapted from Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon/Leroy p Marinell/Robert T. Wachtel)
                  This version dedicated to Jill

                  I saw a werewolf with a street map in her hand
                  Walking through the streets of Columbus in the setting sun
                  She was looking for the local NRA office
                  They’ll be wishing they had silver bullets in that gun

                  Ah-hooo
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo
                  Ah-hooo,
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo

                  If you hear her grumbling around your kitchen door
                  You better not let her in
                  Trump support got their butt kicked late last night
                  Werewolf of Ohio again

                  Ah-hooo
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo
                  Ah-hooo
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo

                  Well I’m afraid she an’t discreet
                  Caused mayhem a GOP Meet and Greet
                  Lately she’s been overheard at 211 South Fifth*
                  You better stay away Fred
                  She’ll hit ya upside your head
                  I’d sure would like to meet her rollin’ pin merchandiser

                  Ah-hooo
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo
                  Ah-hooo,
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo

                  Well I saw the Governor of Ol’ Ohio leaving a fancy restaurant
                  There was someone sneaking up behind him
                  Well I saw the Governor of Ol’ Ohio holding his busted nose
                  Looks like the Werewolf of Ohio did find him

                  Ah-hooo
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo
                  Ah-hooo,
                  Werewolf of Ohio
                  Ah-hooo

                  I saw that werewolf ticking names off of her list
                  And her fur was perfect.
                  Yeah!

      • I doubt most Dems will pick up arms to shoot fellow Americans. Conversely, there are a majority of Reprehensibles who will. This did not start in the 1970s, It is a smouldering wildfire burning beneath the surface since before the American Civil War, soon to be renamed the First American Civil War. The Second is on its way.
        Truly civilized people do not respond to fear with deadly force–which leave out most policing officers in America, they are obviously not civilized!
        Once attacked, it will still take time for a violent response. History has to change with human consciousness. Still War does look inevitable. The question will be, whose side will the armed forces take?

        • Hi there rawgod
          I agree there was a lot of unfinished business left over from the ACW which was swept under the carpet and African-American were made to pay the price.
          Where I differ friend rawgod is on Democrats not picking up arms. The Right has made militia intimidation a valid sort of action, therefore it is only a question of time before those threatened by their actions see taking up arms in defence as valid, and from Defence comes ‘If you want peace you must prepare for war’ and from that comes ‘The John Brown / Nat Turner’ approach.
          I don’t subscribe to blaming the whole of the US police forces personnel I believe they are as conflicted as the rest of the nation (I was a UK ‘Revenue’ taxman for 20+ years; it gets complicated, mostly because the system is constantly shifting its perspectives and allowing too much to fester).
          If we do look back to any civil war situation the response of the civil authorities and armed forces is always fragmented with all sorts of loyalties coming into play.
          My own personal scenario plays out as follows:
          Step 1. The continuation and acceleration of civic and political division.
          Step 2. The increase in cases of sporadic violence against minorities.
          Step 3. The retaliation against Right-Wing groups and the tit-for-tat.
          Step 4. The commencement of Ulster like violence across some regions of the USA.
          Step 5. (Which has been going on since Step 1, but increases). The general move for states, regions and cities to ignore central government.
          Step 6. The formulation of regional groups into semi-autonomous federations (this will be liable to a state of flux as local disputes arise)
          Step 7. The ‘Holy Roman Empire’ era of the USA in which both the president and Washington become nominal only.
          (During these eras there will be a great deal of movement of populations as folk gravitate to places where they can feel in the majority, there will be disturbances along border areas and enclaves)
          Throughout this time opportunists from outside will seek to influence and control likely areas (As happened to Asian and African Nations during the European Age of Empires).
          Canada will most likely will no longer have the longest undefended border in the world.
          This is nothing new, a brief survey of the fall of Empires will show it is part of the Human Tragedy.

          • There is a lot to what you say, but you are missing the spiritual side, and I am not talking religion–that is the opposite of my definition of spirituality. But whatever you want to call it, there are those humans who are feeling more true connections with all living beings. I call it spiritual evolution. Our spirits are evolving. How we react to historical forces is changing. There was a time everyone would take to violence at the drop of a hat. While it is still true of many, it is not true of all. We want to take care of our world,we want life to survive, and we do not want to have to be barbaric to accomplish that. The Reprehensibles are still not evolved, they are stuck in that religious/violence mess that they have been in since time immemorial. They believe in Ultimate Authority, whether they call it God or Donald Trump. But what they really want is to stop change dead in its tracks. They believe in MAGA, they think empires are better than sliced bread. Anyone who evolves out of their mindset is the enemy, the so-called Social Justice Warriors. That is why they fear them. They do not want social justice.
            They don’t want to have to think. They don’t want to have to check their facts. They want to believe what they are told by those leaders who tell them what they want to hear, no matter there is no truth in it. They want stagnant, thus, they want the brackish swamp where dead things go to die. Why? Because they are dead, spiritually and mentally. They are afraid to evolve. They are just afraid. Afraid to change. Populism.
            I daresay I see the world through a very different lens than most, even than those who welcome spiritual evolution, which they do not know they are experiencing. I have studied this change for my whole life. I am not talking off the top of my head. Life is changing, whether we want it to or not.
            And America is the boiling pot at this moment in history. Everything is coming into focus in America today. But they don’t understand yet what is happening to them. They just know it is right for people to be allowed to be who they are, not who everyone else wants them to be. Races are different. Genders are different. Sexes are different. And no one can change that. That is what is good about the human race.
            Other species of life live mostly on the natural side, not trying to understand why they do what they do. Instinct, we call it. They do not know what instinct is, because they are born into it. But even they are evolving. Mostly through relationships with humans, Horses and cats are nothing like they used to be when I was a kid.
            Human beings are nothing like humans were just 60 years ago. We are changing more rapidly the longer we are here. We are getting more in touch with our true spiritual beings. We are evolving. Well, some of us are. The rest are stuck in the swamp they created.
            This is why your scenario will not happen as you see it. The Reprehensibles expect that scenario, unconsciously of course. That is what humans do.
            But history cannot tell the whole story. Humans are changing. We no longer want to make the same stupid mistakes over and over. And this time will be different. I cannot predict how, but I can say with some understanding that the result will be better for some, and not for others.
            I best end this here, or no one will read it. It is too long for the average Word Presser. If you finished this, you are not average, lol.

    • Sounds like a good idea, but even when Old Donnie was sick with the Trump Virus, I hoped he pulled through. If he died, he would have been made a martyr. Instead, he’s still just the same old lying, ignorant, racist conman awaiting criminal charges in January.

  2. I shudder for this country, the unity and spirit of the nation is lost, no longer recognizable. Trump will most certainly lose, but will he leave peacefully? This is a frightful time we’re living through. Wishing Biden – Harris a smooth transition.
