As Tubularsock has mentioned before, Donald Trump is the symptom as well as the result of an America that has fallen off the tracks.

Any country that spends its time at war and not at peace is a sick country.

Americans have been willingly led down the primrose path by leaders that really don’t have the general interest of the “people” at heart.

EVERYTHING has been corporatized and that is epitomized by Citizens United!

The very first give away is when something is entitled with the term “Citizens” …… yes, a dead give away!

That ALWAYS means that a real citizen isn’t within a thousand mile radius of the pronouncement.

Now, of course here is a Tubularsock aside: Have you ever wondered what would happen if the poor would form a Corporation?

They could infinitely expand their lifestyle incomes with golden parachutes and fly first class all with smiling politicians bending over backwards with shit eating grins handing out new installments of corporate welfare checks WITHOUT the stigma of getting a hand out from the government!

Rather cool, RIGHT? Or LEFT …….. is there a real difference anymore? Not that Tubularsock has noticed.

Well shit! Another Tubularsock aside! (Can Tubularsock EVER stay on topic?)

Have you noticed that the RIGHT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “left-thinking”, whatever that is, and the LEFT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “right-thinking”, whatever that is?

But at the same time the power structure continues its agenda, whatever that is, to the point that if you really stop and look at it ………. something is being directed here without our consent.

For example, every time a poll is taken of the general public’s view about the U.S. going to war a resounding number of American citizens say NO TO WAR!

Yet ………. we have been at war THAT WE HAVE CAUSED for the last fifty plus years!

Oh sure, it’s called another name. You know, like a “Police Action”. That was what the Korean War was called AND IT’S NOT OVER YET!

And we always start the wars by propagandizing the citizens with, ….. “THEY attacked us” ….. as in a Vietnamese Gunboat attacked on an American ship in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then off we go blowing the hell out of Vietnam burning to death hundreds of thousands men, women, and children to SAVE AMERICA!

Only to discover that that incident in the Gulf of Tonkin NEVER HAPPENED!

So much for the “FREE PRESS”! Bull shit in, bull shit out!

And NOW those dangerous Vietnamese that threatened America then are now being sold armaments from our military-industrial-complex! God-Fucking-Bless-America!

Or Afghanistan …… why did we attack Afghanistan?

Oh yeah, Tubularsock remembers now, …….. to get bin Laden. And for what? There is still no proof that bin Laden planned 9/11. And before being attacked the Afghan Government said they’d turn bin Laden over to the U.S. if PROOF was provided that bin Laden was guilty.

But it was easier to bomb them than provide PROOF so seventeen years and still no proof, just continuous war.

And it’s good to remember:




Oh but the American population has forgotten Afghanistan because it’s now Syria ad nauseam. And Syria has DONE NOTHING to the U.S.! Oh well.

And don’t even get into Africa ……….. we are destabilizing Africa BIGLY but most Americans don’t even know we are there with our military.

And the Imbecile In Chief still thinks Africa is a “Bigly” country!

Which brings us back to Citizens United.

Money = votes and those with the most money = control. That is NOT democracy that is plutocracy and that is what Citizens United has created!

If a corporation is a person then ipso facto a person is a corporation! So just maybe the citizens may want to shift their status.

And hell, it’s cheaper than a sex change!

    For now, just let me take my cue from Sha’Tara, and just say that I didn’t like this one, and that’s why I reblogged it.

      Now, now Norman. Tubularsock just wants to give you a little word to the wise. Just keep disliking Tubularsock’s blogs and keep reblogging them.

      That way you can get rid of them to others. THAT will show Tubularsock a thing or two!

      Your logic is impeccable! And thanks.

    This comment has absolutely nothing to do with anything, well, not really, but as I was scanning the left side sidebar (looking for a beer, what else) I came across an entry called “EMPOLYMENT” Being equipped, or saddled, with an inquisitive mind, or so I keep telling myself, I felt it incumbent upon myself, or perhaps it behoved me, to ask Tubularsock what was an EMPOLYMENT. Of course I could have assumed it meant “EMPLOYMENT” but I felt that an assumption was too early for me, not ready to leave this world yet. And just because assumpting worked for Mary I can’t assume it would work for me. I’d get half way to Betelgeuse and the thing would fail… Is an EMPOLYMENT some sort of hard working ET? Et tu Brute?

      So you keep your beer on the left sidebar. Good thing for Tubularsock to know.

      And obviously you have succeed to down at least three of those beers to be able to ask Tubularsock this question. And right off the bat Tubularsock would recommend that you take the escalator rather than relying on “assumpting” like Mary because riding the escalator down made Trump President! “God” only knows why, and She isn’t saying!

      And there is no question that being trapped half way to Betelgeuse isn’t wise because the motels in that part of the galaxy are pretty shabby.

      But of course with your inquisitive mind, Sha’Tara YES “EMPLOYMENT” is a hard working ET!

      Any other questions?

        Quote: “being trapped half way to Betelgeuse isn’t wise because the motels in that part of the galaxy are pretty shabby.” Yeah, come to think of it, I think I read that in a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  Other questions? Oh give it time, I’m sure there will be, like when’s Trump’s impeachment date? (or maybe I should ask who is Trump’s impeachment date?).

  6. I think there are grammatical issues with the title to your article. It suggests that America stopped being scammed at some point.
