TRUMPTASTIC

It is true that Tubularsock is sitting on his underground deck which is a stones throw from his top floor corner office in Tubularsock’s underground bunker overlook Washington D.C. from Oakland CA. (see Bunker Tour)

Tubularsock does much of his writing from this vantage-point and today is no exception.

So let’s wonder why it has TAKEN THREE YEARS to start to replace Flint, Michigan’s corroded water pipes.

Just in case you have forgotten, three years ago it was discovered that the city’s government, in order TO SAVE MONEY, switched water suppliers from Detroit to the Flint River.

But those same city government officials failed to treat the water with an anti-corrosive agent and by not doing so they proceeded to corrode the lead pipes and thereby poisoning the residents.

Which led to campaign slogans for the next election like, “Vote For Me You’ll Be Dead In A Week”! Ok, maybe not.

So for three years Flint has been drinking and cooking with bottled water. And then last summer scientists (none that lived in Flint) declared that the water was good enough for bathing and hand washing BUT NOT for consumption.

And then this March, Flint residents were expected to start paying the FULL COST for their water even if they can’t drink it! And to top that, 8000 residents are being held responsible FOR NOT PAYING FOR TOXIC WATER by having “tax-liens-for-unpaid-water-bills!

Now think about this. The State of Michigan has agreed (by court order) to put up $97 million to replace any lead or galvanized steel pipes for at least 18,000 homes. And to entitle citizens to have their water tested four times a year as well as access to free bottled water and filters.

It has taken three years and a court battle just to START to rectify this problem.

CAN YOU SAY INFRASTRUCTURE? Not if Orange Tweet doesn’t create jobs that save lives rather than kill people. Donnie has lost his way already just as Shrub and Obummer did before him. Rebuilding America is just economically impossible if over 60% of our borrowed money go to blow people up. INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT WILL NOT HAPPEN!

BUT in the fiscal year of 2016 the U.S. Government spent $654.5 million on Hellfire Missiles alone. Which have all blown up so ………

And Every hour in 2016, taxpayers in United States paid $116,063 for Predator and Reaper Drones.

AND FOR WHAT? All the wars we have started are still going on so when Orange Tweet calls somebody a looser he may want to look at the State of the Nation he is supposed to be leading.

The ONLY comfort one can draw from all of this is Donnie is as stupid as the country he Tweets from. A guy that can’t even tweet correctly as “covfefe” now has proven.

Man! The fucker can’t even tweet correctly any more. Has anybody checked for lead pipes in the White House lately?

BOW WOW GROOMING

OYG! (OH YOUR GOD!) And Trump criticized Obummer for bowing to the fucking
Saudis?

Donald get hold of yourself! Oh, on second thought, maybe not.

A 110 BILLION DOLLAR DEAL FOR “defense” of Saudi Arabia.

A White House Official said, “The deal will work to increase Saudi Arabia’s defense capabilities, bolstering equipment and services in the face of extreme terrorist groups . . .”

The Saudi Arabians are the main funders of extreme terrorists groups in the Middle East and they support terror & Wahhabi Salafist ideology fueling al-Qaeda/ISIS.

All that Shia Law crap and the cutting off of heads are things practiced by Saudi Arabia!

But Trump has succumbed to the Deep State war machine and the rest will be history.

And now Orange Tweet has shifted from, “We’re having problems with the Muslims” and pushed for a Muslim ban to the new dawn of “shared interests” with Muslims in the stamping out terrorism. And not a word about “radical Islamic terrorism,” or “radical Islam”.

And Donald puffed all up with, “That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States. Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs.”

CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE THE EXCITEMENT OF THE COAL MINERS IN SOUTH CAROLINA!

The fact that Orange Tweet’s attention-span can’t be maintained much past the length of a tweet makes it apparent that when he discovered that the relationship between China and North Korea was more complex than he had imagined he was taken back a bit. The boy lacks knowledge of the world and of history and of the political implications of his own actions.

They have him dancing on the string so far in this current trip but Tubularsock can not believe that he can last the full nine days. He’s followed the telepromter so far but come on. He has got to go off. If he doesn’t then the “deep state” has molded Tweet in record time. Which will then only prove that the brainless are an easy mark for the CIA.

You see, once again George Carlin is correct. “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it!

So ok America, go back to sleep. It will be taken care of without your assistance EXCEPT your continued support of the BULL SHIT!

HEALTH MY ASS!

Now this is the part that Tubularsock, each time, has to step back and ponder why the American population is so dense.

It is not that it is so complicated and it is literally exposed RIGHT OUT IN PLAIN SITE.

It isn’t that it is covered up in some tricky way or anything but there it sits like a cougar on an overhanging rock SINGING IN ENGLISH, ALOUD.

WOULDN’T YOU’D THINK THEY WOULD NOTICE?

Oh. And it doesn’t have to do with political party affiliations either. Both Republicans and Democrats don’t even think twice about it. They always AGREE and just VOTE YES.

Yet the American population just seem not to care or if they do care they don’t do anything about it. It really is a remarkable mystery when you stop and realize that there are 322,762,018 of us VS only 535 of them in Congress.

So with ALL HEALTH LEGISLATION whether it was pre-Obama-Care, Obamacare, or TrumpDon’tCare Care the same thing is agreed upon.

Now you know this. Everyone knows this. And when it is brought up in any conversation it is ALWAYS dismissed with “well that’s government for you”.

Tubularsock has been sent chain-emails about it.

Tubularsock has been sent petitions to be signed against it.

Tubularsock has been sent protest gathering information to stand in opposition to it.

Even in this last election cycle at a town hall meeting when this topic came up a Congressman’s answer was to suggest that if you have a problem with this THEN RUN FOR OFFICE if you want good quality health care.

And he even got some laughs.

Well, Tubularsock wasn’t at this town hall meeting. If Tubularsock had been at this town hall meeting Tubularsock would have said:

 

RELATIONS OF RELATIONSHIPS

 

OVER THE TRUMPAZOO EDGE?

 

 

 

 

LET’S TRY HISTORY!

Well now wouldn’t you know. While Tubularsock was sitting in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) Tubularsock heard a rap on the door and went to see who the visitor happened to be.

And as luck would have it it was the beginning of “drinking hour” at the Bunker, 8:30 am.

A very long time female friend came for a visit with a question on her mind.

And the question was a simple one, “Did WE really WIN the Revolutionary War?”

Now Tubularsock does have an opinion about this subject and he expressed it.

At the very heart of the question is a question, “Who is the WE that you speak?”

Her response was, “WE the American People, US.!”

Tubularsock took the bottle of Wild Turkey Single Barrel out and poured us each a double shot neat and set the bottle on the desk for ready access knowing that this was going to take some time.

Lucky for you, Tubularsock is going to condense this information as he cracks the nut shell open. Because the truth is way bigger than the nutty fairy tale that so many Americans basically believe as true. BUT IT’S NOT!

NOT EVEN CLOSE!

“YOU TOO CAN BECOME PRESIDENT” Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

Here we go.

The best way to proceed is by asking who really gained from the Revolutionary War? Or any war for that matter.

Well the bankers, the land owners, the land speculators (Washington and Franklin fall into this category), the owners of the manufacturing base, the owners of the transportation system mostly shipping at that time.

Who didn’t gain! Indians, slaves, women, workers, indentured servants and anyone who did not own land.

So ……. just who are “The American People?”

We have been taught that America is a “classless” society. Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

We do have class mobility, unlike many other countries, but the class system is entrenched in the culture but because of some mobility it is believed we are classless. Best example that you may recognize is that between “old-money” and “new-money” and all that goes with that elitist thought pattern. (Just for a reference point, Tubularsock has for years held up the no money class. In fact, not even a down payment!)

“YOUR VOTE COUNTS!” Horse shit, never was true …. ever!

From the beginning, unless you were a property owner you could not vote. If you did not have property you were considered not to be a stakeholder in the community and hence had no right to vote.

Women were bared from voting even when they gained property after the death of a husband. But an interesting side note, they did have the right to own slaves that they “inherited”. An odd “classless” state of affairs, indeed!

And remember the reason for the electoral college was a “check” on the possible “corruption” or “take over” by the populous.

But more importantly even with citizens having the right to vote the vote was and is meaningless.
And the reason for that is that the vote is controlled from the top down.

The elite that control the Democrats and the Republican Parties choose the choices and are limited by those established party elites.

The debates are controlled by a Democrat-Republican corporation who make the rules for expressing ideas by determining who can debate!

And so the THIRD CHOICE is not to vote which in itself is a vote against not having a choice other than the CONTROLLED CHOICE. In 2016 40% voters voted not to vote!

And on top of that the NEWS/MEDIA ACCESS is controlled so anyone outside the elite choices have NO VOICE.

So in truth …….. YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT only IF YOU ACCEPT WHAT IS PICKED FOR YOU! (no, this is not the definition of democracy) And you may want to consider how this arranged voting system differs from any other dictatorial system of voting.

You see, YOU JUST HAVE BEEN MADE TO BELIEVE YOU HAVE A CHOICE.

REALLY ……….. TAKE A LOOK AT IT!

“YOUR PATRIOTIC DUTY OF NATIONAL DEFENSE”, Horse shit but there is a “rule” change. And that change is simple ……… you as a citizen are responsible to defend the homeland with the lives of your children EVEN IF YOU DON’T OWN LAND!

And the best insight into who “won” the American Revolutionary War against England comes from Howard Zinn:

 

“And so when you look at the American Revolution, you have to look at it in terms of class.

Do you know that there were mutinies in the American Revolutionary Army by the privates against the officers? The officers were getting fine clothes and good food and high pay and the privates had no shoes and bad clothes and they weren’t getting paid. They mutinied. Thousands of them. So many in the Pennsylvania line that George Washington got worried, so he made compromises with them. But later when there was a smaller mutiny in the New Jersey line, not with thousands but with hundreds, Washington said execute the leaders, and they were executed by fellow mutineers on the order of their officers.”

Over two thirds of the “citizens” of the American Colonies DIDN’T WANT TO GO TO WAR WITH ENGLAND. And yet, we did. Anything familiar feeling in that?

There is so much of this shit that is passed over in the teaching of American history not only in the schools but throughout the entire system. The general American History Textbook is TOTAL FANTASY and American Historians still, to this day, pump out the same “patriotic narrative” ad nauseam !
AND THAT …………….. IS THE REAL AMERICAN DREAM!
So if you want to wake up and much more importantly if you want your children to wake up, start with:

In truth, there is none better!

So, Wild Turkey gone my friend left with her answer and then Tubularsock had forgotten to tell her one last bit of American History. Benjamin Franklin had wanted to have the national bird not to be the eagle but the WILD TURKEY. Seems fitting to Tubularsock.

BULLIES, BULLIES, BULLIES

Now Tubularsock likes the Russians. Oh sure, Vlad’s a shit but look what “we’ve” got for leadership. Ok, leadership isn’t exactly correct when the White House looks more like a cage fight with no holds barred!

But this entire Russian baiting is just the neocons attempting to drive smoke up Trump’s ass.

Now that is not to say that Trump is some innocent bystander. He’s not. His business relations with the Russians are all mixed in with the Russian mafia and oligarchs which may be for all practical purposes the same batch of characters.

But playing the Russian-card is just hyperbole bull shit. The only “THREATS” from the Russians are the ones we create from poking them with a stick. And you all remember what your mother warned you about running with a sharp stick!

Once again, it’s the old EXTERNAL ENEMY trick.

THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS THE FEAR OF US!
