What follows is just a few of the many things that weigh heavily on my mind these days, that keep me awake at night, and that are robbing us all of peace of mind, of any sense of security in this nation.
Why in hell do we start campaigning for the office of president before the ink is even dry on the last election results? Huh? Anybody know an answer to this? Last Tuesday, in an interview with the traitorous Candace Owens, the former guy, asked about whether he plans to vie again for the Oval Office in 2024, said …
“I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement.”
The implications of that arrogant statement made me want to throw up my supper. Luckily, I had only eaten about ¼ of a salad, so not much to worry about.
Very happy??? It literally made me want to kill the man. Note to FBI agents who may be monitoring WordPress blogs … don’t worry, I don’t own a gun and wouldn’t go within 100 miles of that jackass anyway.
There are 1,276 days left until the 2024 election … PLEASE let us live at least ¾ of them in relative peace!!! Allow us time to rest and recuperate from the turmoil of the past 5 years, to take heart in the fact that we once again, have a government led by a man, a man who cares about people, not only their money!
And then I read that former Vice President Mike Pence touted Trump, saying – “we made America greater than ever before” – in a recent speech. No, Mikey, you and he damn near destroyed this nation. You both attempted to turn a nation built on diversity into a homogenous, lily-livered, homophobic country filled with people who carried a torch for hatred of ‘other’ in their shriveled up little hearts. And how … just HOW can you say that when it was he who incited the riot where people were chanting “Kill Mike Pence” on January 6th, and a gallows had already been erected for just that purpose? Are you really so blind, so stupid?
In Arizona, a fake audit of the ballots cast in Maricopa Country (you remember Maricopa’s former sheriff, Joe Arpaio) performed by a nudnik cast of characters including one who participated in the January 6th attacks on Congress and the Capitol. The audit is neither legitimate nor sanctioned by any government agency, and is crazy in that they are using ultra-violet lights to attempt to detect bamboo on the ballots, for they claim that something like 40,000 ballots were shipped here from Asia. Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs detailed multiple irregularities with the audit in a letter to the person overseeing it for the state’s Senate Republicans, Ken Bennett. Hobbs warned Bennett that she would be forced to haul him back to court if he didn’t bring the audit into compliance with state law. And then, the death threats started against Secretary Hobbs and her family. Said Hobbs …
“Earlier today a man called my office saying I deserve to die and wanting to know ‘what she is wearing so she’ll be easy to get.’ … It was one of at least three such threats today. Then a man who I’ve never seen before chased me and my staffer outside of our office.”
As a result, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has ordered round-the-clock security for Ms. Hobbs. This is not the first incident of this type related to the controversy surrounding the 2020 election and the Big Lie being perpetuated by the former guy, nor is it likely to be the last.
Capitol Police report that there has been a 107% increase in reported threats against members of Congress compared to last year. In 2020, the USCP logged about 9,000 cases of threats against lawmakers, while the Secret Service handled another 8,000. In a press release, Capitol Police said …
“Provided the unique threat environment we currently live in, the Department is confident the number of cases will continue to increase.”
This, my friends, is what happens when people in positions of power such as members of Congress, former presidents, popular media personalities, and religious leaders engage in game-playing, lies, deceit, and do so loudly, attempting to stir emotions, to rouse the masses. This is what happens when those same people with power blindly follow a madman. This is what happens when people don’t bother to ask questions, to verify what they may hear from others, or to even take a few minutes to think about whether something makes sense or not. C’mon folks, surely we are better than all this?
