A QUICK SUMMARY WITH LIMITED READING: BUILT FOR AMERICANS!

 

Tubularsock has been busy rebuilding his second-story deck off his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA. (see Bunker Tours)

During the time Tubularsock was attempting to save this illusionary world with common sense knowledge the deck was colluding with its “dry-rot” friends and slowly deteriorating. KA–ZAM! Enter Tubularsock and the mission of rebuild has been accomplished!

So Tubularsock is going to provide a quick review of disconcerting events that have been and are currently happening all around you. No, you are NOT safe.

Enjoy.

 

FOREIGN POLICY

 

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

 

 

FUN FACT ONE COULDN’T EVEN MAKE UP!

 

And just what would we do without SCANDALS to keep our small American minds trivial and bewildered? So don’t thank Tubularsock now, just wait!

Petrina Ryan-Kleid, an Australian artist living in New York City, painted this oil painting and it was sold at a fundraiser for the New York Academy of Art around 2012. She didn’t know who had acquired her painting and was completely surprised when she was told that Jeffrey Epstein, the alleged child sex trafficker, had her work hanging in his Manhattan home. (Washington Examiner 8/16/19)

 

 

Sure it’s creepy, but so are both Hillary and Bill!

 

Tubularsock could go on but then Tubularsock would miss sitting on his new deck, Bon Voyage Tubularsock!

IT COSTS TOO MUCH!

You know, Tubularsock finds all the debates over “How Are We Going To Pay For It” such an odd concept.

“Money” is just a concept, an idea out there in the space. IT IS MADE UP!

At one time “they” attempted to tag money to some physical reality like GOLD.

And GOLD too is just a physical concept due to agreement …… really, in truth it is worthless. UNLESS you agree it has value and then BY AGREEMENT it has value.

Now Tubularsock has always valued potato chips, no really. Potato Chips have value.

And as a means of value there is a problem with potato chips because in Tubularsock’s case, once Tubularsock has eaten the potato chips, well you can see why others chose GOLD.

OH my, Tubularsock digresses.

Well when people speak about Medicare For All or The Green New Deal or even Welfare for the poor the chorus is “WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY”.

“HOW CAN WE GET THE MONEY?” “WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR THAT?”

Well it is just a matter of priorities, we just have to change the agreement.

For example, back in 2013 TIME MAGAZINE did a study of cost-per-flight-hour data for U.S. military aircraft.

Now it is 2019 so you can be positive that the cost reflection is way, way, way, way higher now. In fact, you can count on it.

But somehow we can afford these costs. Now why is that? And then, if we shifted these costs to helping the poor and healthcare and the environment then how could it cost any more than we are spending right now.

You see the money is already being spent and we have it to spend so let’s not spend it on what we are already spending it on and rather on what we really need!

So check this out:

To fly Air Force One (The President’s “ride”) it costs $161,591.00 a FLIGHT-HOUR! That is not the cost of the on the ground costs this cost is the cost while it is in the air!

The President’s Huey Helicopter (This is the President “chopped-ride”) cost $13,634.00 a FLIGHT-HOUR!

Would you like to add up OrangeTweets hours on these two aircraft to just deliver his orange-fat body to Mar-a-Lago for golf! And this is for 2017 IN Flight Cost.

The cost of on ground expenses for the Secret Service and Coast Guard protection and staff costs are not reflected in these costs.

Well, 6 million 6 hundred thousand dollars for IN FLIGHT COST only and this is JUST FOR Mar-a-Lago trips!

 


Melania & OrangeTweet with the Secretary Of The Deplorables, Tubularsock deplaning THE Mar-A-Lago Express …………. FOUR!

 

Now the difficulty of exacting these figures is a challenge because many sources use different base lines depending on what agenda they are trying to push. And “in flight hour cost” are always rising so good luck on keeping up.

And this is not just an OrangeTweet issue. Obummer spent $96.9 million on travel during his 8 years of his Presidency but presently OrangeTweet is running about a half of million A MONTH more and that is JUST THE COST OF AIRFARE!

However, picky, picky, picky. The point is not that the President wastes money traveling BUT that money could be spent far better for citizens needs.

 

But why stop there?

The Global Hawk Drone cost $49,089.00 (2013 rate) a flight hour …… remember that is just while it is in the air. EVERY HOUR IN THE AIR.

Oh and it can surpass 30 hours in a single flight. Which means that for that one flight the cost is $1 million, 472 thousand, 670 dollars.

But there must be a cost to build this thing, right?

Yep!

The “fly away cost” from the factory of a Global Hawk Drone was in $10,000,000.00 in 1994 BUT by 2013 the price became $69,900,000.00 each and then went to $131,400,000.00 each! (that is MILLION )

This price hike is known as a COST OVERRUN to some but to others, Tubularsock included, it is massive CORPORATE WELFARE and it happens all the time.

Seems no one notices except when some homeless man cheats with his food stamps!
And then we have a Congressional Investigation on this cheating of the system.

And we do this all with righteous indignation!

But corporate welfare to Northrop Grumman is just business as usual.

The Global Hawk Drone is the type that Iran just shot down after it crossed into their air space. Oh well, $131 million. WE CAN AFFORD ANOTHER ONE, right? It’s just the cost of doing business!

But the beat goes on:

Remember the per flight hour is the time the plane is in the air and has nothing to do with the cost of maintenance or the incredible price tag and COST OVERRUNS of each of these and many others of the thousands of planes that the USAF fly EVERYDAY!

And as Tubularsock is writing this, OrangeFuck is planning his Military Bull Shit Offensive for the 4th of July and the outrageous costs that will be wasted and then to hear, WE CAN’T AFFORD FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL —– HORSE SHIT!

No, it is priorities NOT money that is the issue.

But here is the critical part, this is not a Democrap vs. Republican’t issue!

THIS IS A TRANSITIONAL ISSUE!

What kind of world do you want to live in?
And YOU decide!

When you step outside of your door every morning, YOU choose what you meet.
Don’t think so ………….. try it and pay attention!

Don’t fear ………. Tubularsock will turn back to cynicism tomorrow, promise!

 

THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF 2018

 

Well a fucking HO-HO-HO to everyone.

Another year is closing and world peace and goodwill toward men is headed for the exit.

The Government is shut down.

The Stock Market is headed toward the depths of hell.

The Congress is not willing to throw 5 billion on blocks to build “The Wall”.

The Orange-Child is kicking, pouting, and tweeting about …. whatever.

And it is business as usual in good old Amerikkka.

For Tubularsock it is that happy time of year when total strangers yell out “Merry Christmas”, or the much more PC, “Happy Holidays” to you.

Of course, Tubularsock yells back …… “Same to ya fella, and so’s your mother.”

 

And Tubularsock’s favorite Christmas past time, sitting on a bench and watching people ladened with gaily colorful packages stepping over the homeless in order to get home with their happy treasures to share in Christmas cheer BEFORE the credit card bills arrive.

 

Well hell, they gave 20 bucks to a food bank what else can one do?

So with total optimism Tubularsock faces 2019 because we can all hope that it can get worse which then will make all this current shit become, “The Good Old Days”!

 

TRUMP: THE TURKEY REFLECTION

 

Now tell Tubularsock, just what in the fuck is the President of the United States of America taking the time to “PARDON A TURKEY”?

Well, it makes perfect sense.

It is a perfect extension of American policy. What we do in reality is ALWAYS the opposite of what we say we are doing! Get it yet?

We support the concept of Democracy for the People of the world by supporting, arming, training any dictatorial regime that will support U.S. imperialism. EVEN IF WE have to overthrow a democratically elected government voted in by the people if it doesn’t conform to American hegemony!

Our national leader pardon’s ONE Turkey and then we as a nation go out and have 46 million turkeys slaughtered to eat on one day EVERY YEAR!

Eighty-eight per cent of American families surveyed by the National Turkey Federation eat turkey at Thanksgiving.

 

Which bring us right to the National Turkey Federation. Tubularsock bets you never knew we had one, now did you?

Yep, we sure do and it is an international non-profit organization whose mission is ‘the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage” to kill wild turkeys. Wow, another loyal corporate lobbying group pushing ahead for managing the kill.

Pretty much like Boeing, Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems for people killing. Sautéed in a French wine sauce and it almost brings our taste buds back to our colonial past.

JUST LIKE THANKSGIVING!

But you really have to ponder, just a little bit, don’t let it get in the way of the leftovers ad nauseam.

Just how culturally programed are we? FUCKING, LIKE TOTALITY!

Here is how, and it will show you that most people BELIEVE ANYTHING if it is packaged right and repeated long enough. (WOULD YOU like to name a president that hasn’t used that technique?)

National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation is a ceremony that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving. It dates back to the 1940’s as a lobbying technique to promote turkey sales. For a while it was a joint lobbying and marketing tool for the egg and poultry industry as well but that ended and the turkey trot won out.

It wasn’t until 1989 that the concept of “pardon” took hold and caught on to this day. Interesting that the CIA President Daddy Bush was the President to start that tradition.

But still what is lost in this entire scam is the only “tradition” in any of this is turkey sales!

Capitalism at its best ……. NO MEANING, JUST MONEY!

An important moral side note for those that have any morality left in this society:

Benjamin Franklin, who proposed the turkey as the official United States’ bird, was dismayed when the bald eagle was chosen over the turkey.

“Franklin wrote to his daughter, referring to the eagle’s “bad moral character,” saying, “I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country!

The turkey is a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America.”

Just goes to show you that the birds you hang with corrupt your vision. Tubularsock believes your mother told you the same thing about your friends. Right?

 

Kavanaugh Ethics Scam

Well Tubularsock knows that some of you out there have had to interview for a job sometime in your current life. Right?

And doing that, depending on the position you were attempting to acquire, you had to provide information about your past work experience and perhaps some letters of recommendation showing your past achievements, experience, and character.

And once that was completed you were interviewed and had either been hired or not depending on how well you fit the job culture you wished to enter.

Of course, that was determined by the hiring team and/or boss considering your qualifications.

Pretty common stuff.

How often were you ever hired to do the job AND THEN AFTER you were hired and working at the job, your boss THEN decided to review your past ethics complaints?

You see in normal cases that would have been done BEFORE you got the job.

Well then, you just picked the wrong job!

You see, if you would had gone for being a Justice on the Supreme Court then you would have gotten the job AND THEN your ETHICS would then be looked into by your boss.

Sure it is ass backwards but we are talking government service here NOT A REAL JOB!

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. has, according to a letter made public, has stated that he has been asked by the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit to transfer at least 15 ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to the 10th Circuit, which is based in Denver and covers six states in the western United States.

To transfer complaints to another circuit is how federal courts in recent years have dealt with high-profile ethics cases.

Judges who ask to transfers these types of complaints do so to avoid conflict-of-interest issues.

So Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to be on the Supreme Court of The United of America and is presently working AND NOW they are checking on his ETHICS!

Now you know the idiom, “A country of laws not of men” which is bantered around like it really means something. It falls into that “Rule of Law” bull shit so often held up as some kind of sacred screed as it’s explanation runs on ad nauseam.

Usually being preached by some of the slickest criminals in our very own government!

The biggest setback to this entire “Rule of Law” business is that those with money and societal status have a far better chance of getting AROUND the law than a regular citizen and if you’re poor …….. forget it baby!

But even if you forget the poor little rich frat-choirboy Kavanaugh who is just the current special privileged token to get a job on connections alone and view the entire system that we pride ourselves …………. well, if you believe it, you are deceiving yourself.

Whether you realize it or not WE better duck because it is not only Deborah Ramirez that is getting Kavanaugh’s penis waved in her face! Oh sure it’s ok …….. he’s just drunk ……. just close your eyes.

Oh hell, Mitch McConnell has already kissed it!

 

JEFF SESSIONS, GOAT FUCKER?

 

It has been many years now that Tubularsock was wandering Europe. But all of this Naziesque crap being directed by OrangeTurd and his trusty companion BibleThumper Jeff has brought back a long forgotten conversation.

Tubularsock was driving through Germany with a trusted friend. We were taking the “slow” way through the German hinterland and was driving through the Black Forest area with no real destination in mind.

The evergreen forests and picturesque villages were right out of a “living” traveler guidebook. An amazing area of Germany to visit especially if you are a meandering traveler.

It was there, sitting in the car at a pullout that our conversation began. If we had been German citizens during the rise of Hitler and if we had been living in this area of German, just how knowledgeable would we have been about Auschwitz in Poland and what was happening in Germany at large as well?

As the hate and fear was propagated that “others” were not worthy of our concern just how shutdown to this oncoming evil would we have grokked?

Tubularsock has many German friends that have stated that their parent’s generation, after the war, would NOT EVEN discuss this subject or explain how they had been duped by Hitler and his hate filled belief system. The shame was too great and they didn’t want to explain their role of even being citizens in that mess.

Jump to Jeff Session interpreting the Bible, Romans 13 suggesting that God supports the government in separating immigrant parents from their children.

 

And it looks to Tubularsock that Jeff has as much knowledge as Tubularsock has about Biblical interpretation when Tubularsock interprets Isaiah 11:6 “. . . the leopard will lie down with the goat . . .” to mean that Jeff Sessions fucks goats!

Now, Tubularsock may not be the best Biblical scholar, however, it just goes to show you that Jeff too is rather selective at cherry picking passages of the Bible for his own political purposes. Shame on you Jeff, you old goat fucker!

 

And then we have Plastic Melania in her “I Don’t Care, Do U” coat going off to see the children in jail to bestow her “motherly love” with her magic wand.

Leaving Barron home alone with his unstable Orange-“father”.

Poor, Poor Barron, assumed to have been born from a turkey baster impregnation so Plastic Mom didn’t have to have that gross Fat-Orange-Body thrusting and panting attempting to get a hard on to do the job.

 

FREE BARRON!, FREE BARRON!, FREE BARRON!

 

Wow, speaking of child molestation! Can you imagine having to be trapped in a “family” with Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric!

Tiffany is not so bad.

But leave it to Peter Fonda to hit the nail on the head with his tweet calling for Barron to be “. . . ripped from his mother’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles.”

Of course, Peter apologized later saying he had been upset over Trump’s Policy and he had “. . . tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television.”

OH CONTRAIR!

The pedophile part WAS a little bit over the top but at least the cage would help protect Barron from Plastic-mom, Orange-dad, and the evil Munchkins!

But unlike the children stolen from their parents at the border Plastic-mom had the U.S. Secret Service notified. Some kids warrant special attention.

 

FREE BARRON!, FREE BARRON!, FREE BARRON!

 

So Plastic-I-Don’t-Care wanted to see for herself what was happening to the imprisoned children of Latin American descent so, if you can believe this, she was sent to a facility opened to the first lady which was, of course, selected keeping in mind the press would be accompanying her.

“Other such facilities around the country have denied access to Democratic lawmakers and media”.

You know, like any good DEMOCRATIC society would do. Prevent Congress from representing the people they are supposed to represent and be the eyes of the people. Republicans are prevented as well. You know, to keep it fair.

Well, it sure fooled Plastic I-Don’t-Care!

Tubularsock is sure that everyone was on best behavior for the Plastic-Lady! She thanked everyone for a job well done and then got into her jet and flew back to Washington, D.C.

She left with her parting words that the U.S. should “govern with heart”!

And Tubularsock agrees and just maybe it has come time to pull that used heart of Dick Cheney and plant it into Donald. That heart never seemed to work for Cheney anyway.

The Nazi mind set is running again and the American public can be awakened to the possible further destruction of what is left of American Values which weren’t that strong to begin with or we can watch the edges of the toilet bowl as we all swirl down into the depth of the Black Forest never to be seen again.

 

It actually is up to US!

Trump has embarrassed the United States of America in the World and as his Scottish-born mother’s relatives have stated: “His Mother had been acutely embarrassed by the antics of her fourth child during the 1990s when his failing marriage and business were the subject of intense tabloid scrutiny.

Mary Trump died in 2000, but if his mother was upset with his crap in the 1990’s she must be turning over in her grave NOW!

And as for dear daddy, Fred C. Trump with his German ancestry as a nap-sack was arrested at a Ku Klux Klan riot in New York in 1927, records reveal. He died in 1999.

 

Need Tubularsock say more? The racist apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree, now has it!

 

THE MISSIONARY POSITION

 

Tubularsock was sittin’ around looking over the sophisticated political system of the United States and just wondered how one would teach 8th grade civics in today’s environment.

Well Tubularsock would work out a simple lesson plan for the students to understand how their political system works.

So first throw out all that bull shit about the “three branches of government” and get right down to the facts and Tubularsock can guarantee that Tubularsock’s class would be on the edge of their seats.

Name any 8th grade civics instructor who could EVER say that?

Tubularsock would first introduce Stormy Daniels and the Porn Star Party and their influence on the entire Executive Branch.

For example the “Vice” President’s job is to, well, explain “VICE”. And explaining that the current President of the United States liked to be SPANKED with a copy of Fortune 500 Magazine is just the beginning. And specifically a Fortune 500 Magazine with a picture of himself, his son and his daughter on the cover. (Hello, is Sigmund Freud in?)

The President of the United States likes to grab a woman’s pussy because women will let him because he’s IMPORTANT. (Oh, Sigmund. Thanks for taking Tubularsock’s call.)

And the President even compared Stormy to his daughter Ivanka. (Well, Sigmund this may take longer than that.)

Now you know how it goes. At least one student would raise their hand with a question.

But in this case they’d be a roomful of hands in the air and thus Tubularsock can guarantee that the students would have a difficult time splitting themselves between texting and paying FULL attention to Tubularsock’s lesson in progress.

At this point, Tubularsock would introduce the concept of the Constitutional position of Church and State. And of course Tubularsock would explain the “missionary position” to his students which according to what Stormy Daniels said, “The sex? “Nothing crazy. It was one position, what you would expect someone his age to do.”

So now that Tubularsock has summarized the President’s roll-in-the-hay so to speak Tubularsock will move on to Bible Thumpen’ Pence.

Sure, he is a right wing Christian which naturally breeds hypocrisy. That is what they have always represented. It is part of their belief system.

And Pence is perfect because he can’t even let himself have dinner alone IN A RESTAURANT with another woman, other than his wife, for fear of his “manliness” overtaking him and fucking her over his hot potato and hash! (at least in his sick little mind)

 

And “Mother”as he calls his wife (and this too, Sigmund) may even spank him with the Bible when he’s a naughty little fucker. And far be it for Tubularsock to know those details but according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal protocol there are things we know and then there are things we don’t know and then there are things we know we don’t know.

THAT is one of THOSE things!

Well, just as it was getting to a natural climax the bell rings and just like Pavlov Dogs the well “trained” students march out of the room to their next class.

Education has always been about “training” stupid!

Learning,  you have to do on your own!
