Interesting for Tubularsock thinking back to just a week or so when the choir was all chanting: BERNIE’S SOCIALISM CAN NOT BE TOLERATED! NO, NEVER!


The fucking Democraps and their corporate overlords yelling those words loader than Dump and the Republican’ts.

How “.. . the times, they are a changing”!

We now are watching in live coverage the Dump Team literally buying the 2020 election.

And this time not behind closed doors. NOPE, right out there on the national stage. Stage center!

The Democraps are dicking around with paid sick leave and free corona tests. So last century. But fits well with the Victrola record player and malarkey of yesteryear with a solid, “don’t give me any of that jazz”, tossed in!

Just a reminder if you aren’t observant, Joe Biden represents a FEAR vote of “lets go back to the good old Obummer Days”.

You remember Obummer right. It is many of his policies that has created much of this false economy we’ve had going. And rather than really looking at just how fucked up many of Obummer’s economic policies were the “liberal class” are so hung up with the non-fact that he was BLACK that they give him a pass for fear of being called racist!

FUCK THAT, as Tubularsock would say and has said that Obummer was the step-en-fetch-it- boy for Wall Street and the Banks while he fucked over the average citizen.

But that is all polluted water under the bridge. BLACK sludge to be sure.

No, what we have unfolding right under our eyes is the open buying of the 2020 election by Dump and his boys.

Sending $1000.00 checks out (or whatever the amount will be) to EVERY American starting in a couple weeks is rather an inexpensive and BOLD move that gives the impression of altruism EVEN IF THE ROLL OUT IS AS FUCKED UP AS THE CORONAVIRUS TESTS!

You see, the point has been made! Get a check = VOTES. And if they never show up the narrative has been set ………….. BIDEN’S LOST THE ELECTION, right now!

However if the corporate Democraps want at least a chance at winning 2020, swinging from Biden to Bernie IS THEIR ONLY CHANCE …….. PERIOD!

But as we already know, the Democrap’s Corporate Elite don’t need to win 2020 they’ll be able to milk the system as well under Dump as they are doing now.

But just maybe as the rank and file Democraps will see at the Convention that their desires will be controlled by the SUPER DELEGATES and control will remain in the hands of the elite.

But for Tubularsock the vote is really simple. Burning Bernie =’s A Vote For Dump as Tubularsock waves his $1000.00 check!

  1. Seriously, what I like and respect about you is you see the neglect, failures, and deficiencies in both parties and al politicans. Most people rant about the Republicans or Democrats. But Trump is disappointing. AndObummer was a complete and utter failure.

    And you are not afraid or too blind to call them both out. Most people think their party is better than the other. THEY BOTH SUCK. THEY ARE BOTH LETTING US DOWN.

    Bravo my friend..

      LA, Tubularsock thanks you for the words of support. Tubularsock is a strong believer in the fact that WE are ALL one no matter how the circumstances may appear differently.

      From my travels over the world over the years Tubularsock has only found wonder and wonderful people. No matter where Tubularsock ventured.

      And a major, if not the only, reason is that one gets what one puts out. Simple but true!

      And yet, Tubularsock loves the cynical only because of the constant disappointment of those who are still sadly asleep.

      The political structure set up in the U.S. IS and ALWAYS HAS BEEN a lie!

      And the programming of this falsehood has lead us to this point when ALL the markers along the way were ALL warning signs we as a country didn’t heed!

      And now we are here.

      And as Tubularsock sees it ……….. TIME for a new beginning OR total destruction.

      That is as positive as Tubularsock can be while he sits in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA while Tubularsock types in an ordered “shelter in place” shut down over the coronavirus which may only be a conscience agreement and NOT even real!

      YES! The fan IS hitting the shit!

    I echo the comment above, Tube!!

    Dump, as you realize now, doesn’t have to buy reelection, since the democraps are already ensuring his second term by placing tattle-tale Gray’s decrepit old fool/vp on the ballot. Four years ago, it was Bill’s bitch making sure The Donald would win, now it is dirty-old-man Biden. And I hear there is talk of Bill’s bitch being his vp choice. Not since McCain and what’s her face, has there been such a not dynamic duo!

      Tubularsock can’t do “Quarantinis”. Tubularsock has learned over the years that Tubularsock needs only to drink “neat” because Tubularsock has to keep count or Tubularsock can go off the deep end and regret it.

    “These are the times that try a man’s soul” said Thomas Paine. We were fighting to create a nation then, now we’re trying to save one.

    So,, of course, a poem is in order:

    –Bernie’s about done…
    –And we’ll miss all the fun..
    –And his consummate goal…
    –Of saving America’s soul…
    –Biden is in with his promise that…
    –His V.P. will be a dame.. (pardon the sexist language but it’s the only rhyme I had)
    –If it’s Hillary that’s lame…
    –If it’s Klobachar…
    –We won’t go very far…
    –If it’s Kamala..
    –Will she play well in Omaha?…
    –If it’s Liz..
    –She’ll give Wall Street the biz….
    –So who does Biden pick..
    –To win this here election?…
    –Who will be his winning selection?…
    –Or does it really matter in the scheme of things?…
    –Compared to the advantages Trump brings…
    –He’s got a rabid group…
    –His Megahat tribe…
    –And an American populace…
    –He’s getting ready to bribe…
    –And a gray-haired Veep…
    –If he can be aroused from his sleep…
    –If it’s four more years of the disreputable Trump…
    –That won’t be very desirous…
    –And we’ll long for the days when all we had..
    –Was the Caronavirus…

  7. Well, Tube,
    I agree that buying the election is like a rich daddy buying love from his children. It’s appropriate in this Sugar Daddy patriarchal system created by the so-called “Founding Fathers,” of which Franklin was one.

    Now, Ben was a cagey old coot, and he participated in the shanghied so-called Constitutional Convention that more than amended the Articles of Confederation in secret, then by-passed state legislatures to have it ratified, with the so-called Founding Fathers promising each other absolute secrecy. Thus has evolved into the good ole US of A, founded on lies and secrecy and continuing in its natural growth pattern to the point we have reached today.

    Both Dims and Pubs are beholden to the Ponzi dollar created by the Federal Reserve Act, which guaranteed the Federal Reserve (a private corporation) perpetual interest payments on perpetually increasing federal debt, secured by the income tax. So of course the Dims and Pubs would support further increasing federal debt to be repaid with future taxpayer money, but the Union has to stand for this to happen.

    Thus the bi-partisan deal to balloon the federal deficit even more to keep the debt-bubble from bursting in the near term. Thus this manufactured pandemic to justify a couple of trillion dollars of future money to keep pharma, insurance, Wall Street, the test providers and the mask manufacturers in business.

    I hope you have enough ethanol (otherwise known as Wild Turkey) to keep you healthy as you self-isolate to avoid spreading unhealthy sanity around California. Sanity is contagious, I’m told, so wash your head frequently. Does your governor have you on lock-down, too?

      KO, a very clear history of the United States of America which the school textbook authorities would reject because it is way too short and way too clear EVEN with pictures to sell massive textbooks to school systems.

      Sorry, you’ll have to beef it up maybe with a chapter on how democracy works in the abstract as compared to how the communist system works in the abstract or even how the socialist system works in the abstract. As you know, none of them have worked “in the real” because from the theories came the human beings getting involved and fucking it all up delivering the “perfect storm”!

      As for the “Wild Turkey Medical/Economic Theory” yes it does promote “sanity” using a very scientific formula:

      Take two shots in the morning,
      Take two shots at noon,
      Take two shots in the evening that you can assume.

      Take two shots in the time of war,
      And two in the time of peace
      Take two shots and then take two more at least.

      Take two shots in the time of pandemics,
      Then wash your head as planned,
      For sanity comes with clarity especially when you land.*

      *(yes, Tubularsock was influenced by Sublime’s Lyrics)

      And yes KO, the California Governor has put us on “lock-down” but Tubularsock noticed when he was riding his bike that the homeless are doing what they do best being locked down while being locked OUT!

      Resa, welcome to Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news.” Thank you for following as well. Tubularsock will be reciprocating and following your work. Tubularsock enjoyed the quick overview of your work and will return for a deep dive into some incredible and artistic work you are presenting.

      But first, there is no question that there is plenty of “. . . behind the scene squeeze going on . . .” in this entire political circus. But all the clowns aren’t funny!

      The so called “American System” has always been a lie and yet the public still have the illusion that it is the best form of government in the world. AHHH, the bullshit “stacketh”!

      The system has been bought up by the corporate order and though the parties speak differently the end result is that the same pro-war, anti-labor, tax cuts for the rich prevail.

      And there is NO WAY Bernie can change the system if he did get in BUT his importance is the fact that he is pointing out the TRUTH of the system as it is now.

      AND BECAUSE of Bernie the current political jokers are adopting plans “a-la-Bernie” because the current pending doom will take place in the streets is something isn’t done to ease “the masses that are loosing everything”!

      “In my experience, everyone will say they want to discover the Truth, right up until they realize that the Truth will rob them of their deepest held ideas, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. The freedom of enlightenment means much more than the experience of love and peace. It means discovering a Truth that will turn your view of self and life upside-down. For one who is truly ready, this will be unimaginably liberating. But for one who is still clinging in any way, this will be extremely challenging indeed. How does one know if they are ready? One is ready when they are willing to be absolutely consumed, when they are willing to be fuel for a fire without end.” – Adyashanti

      selizabryan, if the shoe fits ……..

      Tubularsock has used this “step-n-fetch-it phrase in the past for Haldeman’s and Ehrlichman’s relationship with Nixon as well as George Bush’s relationship with Dick Cheney .

      The connotation of the phrase becomes “loaded” when it is used in relationship with Obummer being a pseudo-Black.

      However the phrase FITS the situation Tubularsock is pointing out and to shy away from using it because it may/will be construed as Tubularsock being racist in this use is the utmost in racial profiling!

      Maybe our next discussion should be, Was Obummer “Black Enough” to be called a Black candidate for President. Remember all that foolishment?

      Because IF Obummer WASN’T then your concerns are just not arguable.

      And all this aside, selizabryan ……….. you are too fun!

    Equal opportunity racially loaded derogatory comments are fine. As long as everyone else is getting the same treatment. Only problem is the “step n fetch it” phrase hearkens back to the hypocritical, inhumane, ruthless, self-righteous beginnings of this country and is one of the reasons why one of the biggest moronic xenophobic racist ever was able to become president today. Obama deserves a better insult than that one, I think.

      Well selizabryan, Tubularsock is not in complete disagreement with your position on this subject and is most willing to attempt to come up with a BETTER insult for Obummer but “Uncle Tom” carries a little of the weight of that past you have pointed out and “nigger” is way out of line for what the focus that “step-en-fetch-it” conveys.

      Tubularsock is more in line with Dick Gregory’s position with the term “nigger” which did catch on in the Black community but is a bit overdone for Tubularsock’s liking. (Not that I care because it is not part of Tubularsock’s vocabulary.)

      In fact originally, “You step-en-fetch-it boy, ya hear!” did not have racial overtones when spoken by an adult to a child. It meant, you do as I say now and fast!

      The racial overtones came later.

      But Tubularsock is willing to be open to any suggestions.

    Being half black from a black family, I know all about the history of the language since all those things and more have been said to people in my family and now my husband. Being a woman and being what is called “high yellow”, I received much less bad treatment from people over the years but have endured my own slights and witnessed it aplenty.

    Long story short: I feel like we can get rid of IT from the presidency, we can get better healthcare for all, we can be super-prepared next time for any new pandemic, we can get everyone to believe in climate change and help to do something about it….but I fear racism will hang on before, during, and after and who knows if it’ll ever be completely gone. And believe me, it irks me to NO END when black people use the n-word so freely and say “it’s ours now.” That’s the biggest delusion and rationalization for self-hatred that I’ve EVER heard and I can’t wait until THAT stops one day.
