SURE IT MATTERS: DUMP DUMPY DUMP!

 

Well, if it hasn’t become obvious to you by now that Orange Tweet will throw ANYONE overboard and under the bus as long as it is not him, then you haven’t been paying attention.

That includes what is known as The United States of America as well.

Orange Tweet has no shame and ONLY cares about HIMSELF!

And the DEPLORABLES that lovingly get worked up by him time and time again seem to just love the redundant soliloquies he supplies.

Primarily because most of them have an attention span of less than four seconds which is just short of the time to tie their shoes.

But really, you know this.

What is wayyyyyyyyyyy more worrisome is the general American public that still believes that the Democraps, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, provide any direction other than same ol’, same ol’!

In fact, according to The New York Times, the Democrapian establishment is considering a possible shift away from Biden to  John Kerry or even Bitch Hillary!

OH, SAY IT ISN’T SO!

But it shows that the Democrap Establishment is no different from the Republicant’s and both are ONLY centered on their own net worth rather than any care for the “regular citizens” of the U.S.

And those “regular citizens” do have the ability to tie their shoes BUT not to see the lie that they are living thinking they have a choice. We DON’T have a democracy! Will you get that clear.

Your 8th grade civics teacher unknowingly LIED to you. Only because that teacher was lied to as well and so on.

 

Oh sure Trump is an idiot in the open while Biden, Obummer, and Killery are hidden idiots. All that they are doing is business for themselves and their families and we the citizen pay for it.

Trust Tubularsock on this. NONE OF THESE ASSHOLES CARE A HOOT ABOUT YOU!

NO MATTER HOW STUPIDLY OR ELOQUENTLY THEY TELL YOU.

AND YOU ARE THE SUCKER IF YOU BELIEVE THEM.

It is pretty simple and it is out there in plain sight.

Tulsi Gabbard ………….. opposed to the continued regime change wars.

No main stream media would give her the time of day. The so called “free press”. Really a joke!

Bernie Sanders ………… plenty of coverage but the Democratic Establishment see him as a threat and are willing to lose to Trump rather than support the ONLY candidate who wants to shift the entire set up to a citizen first platform.

Can’t have that. Would cost too much or rather it would cost the ESTABLISHMENT corporate overloads too much.

Here’s the bottom line for Tubularsock.

The entire system is MADE UP.

So we the people just need to MAKE UP A NEW SYSTEM.

Well, lets start with Bernie’s modest projected programs and build from there.

And the cost? Hell! Making “money” out of thin air has already been perfected by the central bank, so we just make more of it and AGREE that the money is worth something.

That is how it is done now ……. take a look!

All Tubularsock asks is that all of these establishment people stay out of HELL so Tubularsock will have a comfortable warm get-away to hang out in because the Cayman Islands is just too expensive.

SAVE THE PLANET …….. LEAVE!

 

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!

 

 

TUBULARSOCK’S ODE TO
“AN EXTREMELY STABLE GENIUS”

 

I know you must be kidding
I know it can’t be so
I don’t even think it’s funny
Like a looney-toony show
It is rather sad and disruptive
For one to have to know
As if the swamp has risen
And gummed up all the flow
I stand in waders to my chest
Knowing I just must go
And yet my feet are planted
That’s why I’m being slow
The economy is booming
If you believe what you’ve been told
Don’t pay attention to the stores
as they stand in line to fold
And the job rate is as high as it has ever been
But working three jobs to cover one has got to be a sin
And with all the farmers put on welfare to cover tariff loss
With foreclosures and suicides that’s pretty heavy gloss
Oh did I mention factory job loss and infrastructure troubles
Not to worry, not to worry just stay inside your bubble
But hell, our wars are working really fine with record profits made
And if we add a couple more we can cover up the shade
And rest assured with all of this that I have shared between us
NEVER WILL IT BE SOLVED, BY OUR …… “extremely stable genius”!

 

OH NO! GROPEN’ JOE BIDEN

Well like Tubularsock constantly says, “there is always something”.

And the “deplorables” make up much of the U.S. population …….. No! really.

Now don’t get mixed up. Killery first used the term “deplorables”, aiming at the low IQ or rather the NO IQ Dump supporters. Proving the Tubularsock Theory that no IQ-er’s stick together. (That’s Science!)

However when the “backlash” came in after her statement she did the regular political jig of re-framing the statement.

The only difficulty that Tubularsock can see about the term “deplorables” is that they span the entire American political system.

Tubularsock is not a firm believer in counting the votes of dead people in order to rig an election, even though many of the dead are smarter than living Americans, nor is Tubularsock a firm believer in running a DEAD-PAST-OVER-FINISHED-CANDIDATE for President of the United States.

Enter stage RIGHT ……… Gropen’ Joe Biden! The man who believes that sticking his nose and mouth into a woman’s ear or hair and wishing them advice or encouragement is a little outdated but WAS ok to do IN THE PAST.

Gropen’ Joe has JUST figured out that uncomfortable encounters or instances of inappropriate touching isn’t like it was in the good old days. Times have changed NOW and he understands that “social norms are changing” and “the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset.”

NO Gropen’ Joe, IT NEVER HAS BEEN OK! You old crusty fuck!

 

Creepy to say the least but slimy old egalitarian Joe sometimes let his hand wondered in all the wrong places.

 

Oh sure it’s creepy, but hell Gropen’ Joe has been around the block dozens of times and now the corporate Democrats are attempting  Resurrection and are just as out of touch with the American electorate as they were when they attempted to dump Killery-The-Bitch on the nation, which led to Head-Stuck-Up-His-Ass-Dump winning!

 

But OLD Gropen’ Joe also has other opinions about women which may be a little ahhh, well chauvinistic.

Like Gropen’ Joe’s view on abortion.

Gropen’ Joe believes that the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe vs Wade “went too far”!

AND “I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.”

And as far as Tubularsock knows, no one has asked Gropen’ Joe, IF HE THINKS A MAN SHOULD HAVE THE SOLE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN TO HIS ERECTION OR NOT.

 

It may be a good idea that we keep the fucking government and the fucking church out of our fucking bedrooms. Now that is a FUCKING good idea!

 

NOW, you guessed it …….. that ain’t all folks!

There was the case of Anita Hill and now Justice All Hands Clarence Thomas who because of his fine upstanding sexual harassment became a Supreme Court Justice. No, Gropen’ Joe voted against Thomas’ nomination but he blocked Anita Hill’s corroborate witnesses to Thomas’ sexual conduct from speaking even though they were all present and ready to testify.

And who would be surprised from a guy who believes that a woman doesn’t have a right to say what should happen to her body!

 

However Gropen’ Joe makes a fine candidate for the Black vote.

If you haven’t paid attention, he had the highest respect for Strom Thurmond and Jessie Helms both solid racists. Gropen’ Joe also held a solid opposition to and successfully pushed through legislation against bussing that denied equal education to minority children trapped in underfunded school districts.

Another fine “freedom fighter”, that’s Ol’ Gropen’ Joe!

And we can’t forget his backing along with Strom Thurmond a bill that abolished parole for federal prisoners and the passing of  a bill that set a mandated 5-year term for anyone convicted of possessing a tiny piece of crack, creating the famous disparity in sentencing between “white drugs” and “black drugs.” Thus increasing the Black prison population.

NOTE: The way that legislation worked was a tiny bit of “crack cocaine” carried a 5 year mandatory sentence. And crack at the time was used primarily in the Black community. However “powdered cocaine” was not tied to the 5 year mandatory sentence thus saving all those White lawyers, White stock brokers, White bankers, and White Congress members from going to jail. Seems fair to ol’joe!

But don’t fear ………. Ol’ Gropen’ Joe in January of this year has cleared all that up by saying he “regretted” his tough-on-crime bills during his time in Congress. Well, oh gosh. That should settle all that prison time for the Black folk!

But what captures Ol’ Gropen’ Joe’s “old-timey” ways toward Blacks is best expressed in this statement about Obummer in 2007:

“. . . the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Will, yessa massa’ ……… “bright and clean”!

All Tubularsock has to say is if ANY Black person votes for this “ol’ timey” racist grandpa, you deserve what you get!

 

Are you tired yet? Oh sure, Tubularsock can continue ………….. ad nauseam really!

 

Let’s look at the ability, just like Step-‘en-Fetch-It Obama, Gropen’ Joe will bend over and take it up the ass by Corporate America. And he’s proven it time and again!

Gropen’ Joe is a big Big BIG supporter of the Banksters! He, over the years, has bent over backwards to please them. Gropn’ Joe supported the to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act helping free the banks of Delaware to gamble with great success that helped to lead to the 2008 financial “to big to fail” collapse of run away banking.

Oh, yep ……… Gropen’ Joe has said he regrets this vote to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act but you know others lost their houses and pensions which just helped the White middle class folks FEEL like the Black folks.

Gropen’ Joe walked away unscathed. So FUCK YOU!

And Gropen’ Joe has served his Bankster friends by passing a long series of laws denying students the protection of bankruptcy laws. Students today cannot escape their huge debts and must accept lifelong poverty like responsible adults as corporations go bankrupt and still walk away without concern. Well hell, that’s Capitalism!

 

And let us not forget Gropen’ Joe’s support in the past of building a FENCE along the Southern boarder to keep out those “illegals” from bringing drugs to the U.S.!

As everyone ALWAYS has known, 90% of drugs coming into the U.S. has never gone through the Southern boarder, but rather through Ports of Entry such as Miami, New York, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, and Kalamazoo!

Some of the best cocaine Tubularsock ever tried was smuggled into SF harbor inside a cargo container of high resin skateboards from Brazil. The resin kept the sniffing drug dogs from picking up the scent. The not so amazing thing about this is that this was a weekly occurrence.

Oh well, Tubularsock lost contact with these smugglers and found that cocaine never really worked for Tubularsock. Tubularsock’s metabolism has always moved at a far greater rate than any “lift” coke could provide. So what’s the point?

And Tubularsock has a stack or is it a line of stuff here but Tubularsock is only going to mention one more thing about sleepy Gropen’ Joe and that is his MIDDLE OF THE ROAD position when it come to the New Green Deal.

Middle of the road is not a safe place to stand on ANY issue except for the gutless and it is there that Gropen’ Joe is at the height of his ability, GUTLESS! Fucking who needs that?

As for climate change and the environment there is NO TRUE DEBATE. Man has ruined the air, the water, the soil of this earth and all FOR WHAT? PROFIT???

It is way past time to turn this around and stop trying to “prove” or “not prove” if man is responsible for fucking all this up ……….. look at the rivers, the ocean, the air!

Even the most backward, uneducated, primitive creature has enough “common” sense to not shit in the water hole …….. NOT MAN!

 

Wow, ALL THIS TO SAY ……….. NO ON BIDEN!

Wake up and find a new creative direction rather than following a walking dead grandpa with no guts. And if the Democrats insist like they did with pushing Killery they will lose again.

Wake the fuck up!

Of course some thing still hold true:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

POPPY MADNESS?

Since 2002 the United States has spent $8.6 billion just for the “war” against Poppies in Afghanistan and this year (2017) poppy production is UP, UP, UP! Another great job accomplished by good ol’ America!

 

 

And the stated reason is that the Taliban, which banned poppy cultivation when it ruled Afghanistan, (you know BEFORE we attacked them and started this ENDLESS war) is now involved in running its own factories, refining the lucrative crop into morphine and heroin for exporting abroad. Mostly to Europe and Canada.

Most American heroin comes from those bad-hombres’ in Mexico!

And much like in Vietnam, the CIA is up to their chinny-chin-chins in running drugs as usual. Tubularsock might as well mention the big banks that launder the money too, so as not to leave anyone out.

Ok, just to be complete the picture, many members within the entire “democratic” Afghan government find a way to get a cut as well. Isn’t that what democracy is all about?

You see it is a Narco-state after all!

 

Afghan farmers are paid about $163 for a kilo (a little over 2 pounds) of the black sap from raw opium. Once refined the price is about $3500. But by the time it is shipped to Europe it wholesales for $45,000!

According to the United Nations in 2016, Afghanistan, which produces 80 percent of the world’s opium, made around 4,800 tonnes of the drug bringing in revenues of three billion dollars.

 

NOW DO NOT WORRY!

The U.S. has worked diligently to coerce local poppy farmers to shift their crop from poppy cultivation to “legal” alternatives such as wheat, barley, mustard and melons.

The result was that those “legal” crops are more difficult and expensive to successfully cultivate and yield much less at market than did their previous illicit poppy plants.

As one farmer put it, “If we plant two bags of wheat, then we’ll have just enough money to buy the seeds to plant another two bags of wheat. […] We’re going backwards. Of course we’re angry at the government.” (Common Sense For Drug Policy 9/6/17)

Of course, as would be predicted, those areas that were driven from poppy production in turn are the same areas where terrorism activity increased.

Surprised? Push people to the wall and you get a response.

All in all, the U.S., lost the Vietnam War, and has LOST the war in Afghanistan. And yet Orange Tweet Trump just like Step-en-fetch-it Obummer before him has entered deeper into the quagmire.

And all that leads to this future conversation: “Mommy why did daddy die in the war? Oh honey, like I’ve told you before, to protect the Opium Trade.”

So now you understand why the poppy is used as a symbol on “Memorial Day”!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A TUBULARSOCK EXCLUSIVE:
NEWS BEFORE IT HAPPENS!

Ok as usual, Tubularsock has an insider’s perspective into the current administration being that as Secretary of the Deplorables Tubularsock is on the “right” side of the right government policies of The Super-Bigly Great Orange One!

Rumor has it that Tubularsock has positioned himself in the current West Wing of the White House in the boiler-room where he has control of the heating and cooling of the building. Being the ONLY member of the current administration that knows the secret codes for the indoor environment of the White House puts Tubularsock in an enviable power position.

So when it was reviled by the New York Signs, a hostile progressive publication, that the
Secretary of the Deplorables had been subpoenaed by Robert Mueller much anticipation was anticipated. And as that anticipated anticipation grew the left-stream-press concluded that Russia was involved!

 

As Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has reported through an official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, that Russia may have a relationship with the Secretary of the Deplorables but this was denied by the administration.

However it was noted by a former Secret Service agent who did not wish to be identified that some ties with the Russian Government may be true. Some documentation was procured from this individual as seen below.

 

“I hasten to point out that in no sense do I claim the ideas I am submitting are a real thing. They constitute a theory, not a thesis”, stated the former Secret Service agent.

But an American official familiar with the talks with Mueller, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly stated, “some pictures are really worth a thousand words”.

Yet the investigation conducted by the sharp-eyed-reporters from Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has produced an actual photograph that may add some light to the Trump-Tube Russian connection.

 

Now sure Felix Sater has Russian connections! Hell, he’s Russian!

When asked, Tubularsock, Trump’s Secretary of the Deplorables, stated, “Felix Sater is a Russian-American gangster of the old school. You know, a classical American tradition type Eliot Ness gangster. It is this solid American criminal tradition that our President believes in …… make  America Great again!”

Felix Sater has deep financial connections to Trump and to Russia. Felix Sater has been a friend of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen since childhood, and is an important Trump business partner who worked out of Trump Tower.

But funny, when Donald was asked about his connections with Felix, Trump said, “I’m not that familiar with him.”

Which would be expected for Trump to say especially after his associate Felix Sater, described his ambitions in emails to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.

In those emails Sater states, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.” (New York Times … for real!)

So we all have, so far, three possible Russian connections with Trump.

The first is the meeting in Trump Tower between Russian agents and Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner.

The second connection is the attempt by Republican operative Peter W. Smith to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails through Russian hackers. According to The Wall Street Journal “Robert Mueller is investigating Michael Flynn’s connection to this operation”.

And the third connection is Felix Sater.

Looks like a full plate.

 

But in truth the Russian connection is there but it is mostly bullshit. The real deal is going to be the evidence that is being collected on financial crimes, including potential money laundering that is where Donald and his family are going to go down!

 

 

 

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?
