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?

AMERICA SCAMMED AGAIN!

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:

9/11 WAS NOT AN INSIDE JOB!

IT WAS AN OUTSOURCED JOB.

THE U.S. ALWAYS OUTSOURCES IT’S TERRORIST ACTIVITIES!

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!

 

 

TARIFF & BEER

 

A half ass Trump produces half ass policies producing half ass outcomes for a half ass country!

HOW PERFECT! Oh yes, American Exceptionalism!

Could the dumb ass get any better than this?

 

 

COKE is raising its prices and BEER is going up. Damn, those TRUMP TARIFFS are sure helping out us deplorables!

But rest assured the soybean farmers are going on corporate welfare, BMW are raising it’s prices and Harley-Davidson is moving some of its work out of the country.

Goldman Sachs projects Ford and GM will both lose $1 billion each this year because of Trump’s tariffs.

Well hell, it’s only money!

 

The interesting problem is that the trade war with China sets in motion a loss in market share.

And the longer all this continues, soybean farming will grow in other countries and once that becomes established it may NEVER shift back to the way it was before Trump’s destruction of the American soybean farmers.

But that doesn’t really matter. Fucking Dump hasn’t any stock in soybeans!

So, you got to admit that no one except The Imbecile In Chief could have bankrupted a gambling casino but THAT is the “brilliance” of Dump’s business aptitude.

You’ll understand what direction we are going economically when you see the first “garage sale” on the White House front lawn. Cash Only!

 

THE CAREENING CARAVAN OF CHAOS!

You know, Tubularsock really doesn’t know exactly where to begin.
Should it be the Monroe Doctrine?

Nah, Monroe’s dead.

Should it be the United Fruit Company?

Nah, that banana has already been shoved up your ass.

Just how much history do you know when it comes to Latin America.

What country has placed into power and supported more dictators and despots in Latin America than any other country in the world?

YOUR COUNTRY BONKEE!

The United States of America.

So what in the fuck is all this raging about THE CARAVAN coming toward our precious boarders?

The Fox News Whorelets on the morning show provided a story about THE CARAVAN which as usual Dumb-Shit-Dump got all animated about and went off on it.

Of course, neither the Fox News Whorelets or Dumb-Shit-Dump know anything about the subject AT ALL ………… DUMB FUCKS ALL, to coin a phrase.

 

(Enter Tubularsock stage left)

Now lets get something straight, right off the top. This Caravan Thing is a YEARLY PROTEST and the goal is to raise awareness of the conditions many are fleeing in Central America. And many of these conditions have been created by the United States! (ask Killery)

This particular “Via Cruz” (annual marches), organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras (The People Without Borders), is now in its eighth year and is made up of mostly Central Americans.

This protest started with about 1200 people and most will end their protest by the time they hit Mexico City. Only 150 to 200 people will continue to the U.S. boarder to APPLY FOR ASYLUM. Get it? They are not sneaking into the U.S. THEY ARE APPLYING FOR POLITICAL ASYLUM!  Which is condoned by both U.S. and International Law.

 

Now Dump is claiming that because of his exposure of this CAREENING CARAVAN OF CHAOS it has been broken up BUT THIS HAPPENS EVERY YEAR and only a handful of refugees EVER ask for political asylum from the U.S. at the boarder.

Dump has nothing to do with it! Except to show that like EVERYTHING ELSE he does he is CLUELESS! A real DUMB FUCK SUPREME!

But lets get a more complete view of this entire mess. As much as Tubularsock thinks that Dump is a complete ASSHOLE, Tubularsock does not exclude Killery and Step-en-fetch-it-Obummer as complete and utter ASSHOLES as well.

For Tubularsock this is a family of assholes!

And it is all based on Corporate Democrats and Corporate Republicans and the fact that it is well established that the Corporate “member” being rammed up Trump’s, Hillary’s and Obama’s asshole is plainly de rigueur!

And that is why we get the same foreign policy because it is based NOT ON PEOPLE but on profit and profit is what is defined as PROTECTING AMERICAN INTERESTS!

But Mr. and Mrs. Citizen, it is not necessarily in YOUR INTERESTS!

AND if your stupidity wasn’t so tragic if would be FUNNY!

 

 

So lets look at where the need for this protest was created.

In the spring of 2009, Killery used her position as Obummer’s first Secretary of State to help the right-wing Honduran military and business class overthrow the democratically elected government of Honduras.

Of course the reasons given for doing this were all humanitarian and the love of the Honduran people ……. WE DID IT FOR THEM!

Of course, most Americans didn’t even know where Honduras was let alone understand that the Honduran people’s democratic vote didn’t agree with America’s investment class so Killery and Obummer backed installation of an authoritarian, oligarchic right-wing government.

Oh, did Tubularsock mention that the new elected democratic government was planning to kick the U.S. out of its air base and use it as a national airport? Hmmm. The U.S. installed dictator allowed the U.S. to keep its air base. Pays to have friends, now doesn’t it!

Hey, it has been the AMERICAN WAY in all Central and South American history.

That is what the Monroe Doctrine was all about in the first place!
The U.S. “sphere of influence” …….

So the U.S. CREATED the refugee crisis in Honduras and in Iraq, and in Syria, and in Libya because we destabilized these areas for our own interests and then we turn our backs on the refugees THAT WE CREATED like it was their fault that we bomb the fuck out of them.

BUT REST “ABSURD” WE DID THIS ALL FOR HUMANITARIAN REASONS!

 

Capitalism’s Contribution: looting, lying, and acting obscene

the die is cast
the money on the table
some people may die
is it really that bad
just look at the profit
it’s ours ‘cuz we’re able

it’s only good business
it’s just what we do
if they’re in the way
what are we spoze to do
if we don’t take advantage
we’re all going to lose

it’s there for the taking
the law’s on our side
we made it that way
the game being played
it’s really their fault
if they don’t step aside

sure we’ll help their children
we’ll put them in camps
we’ll do what we can
you must understand
it’s best that you see
we have a smart stance

we’ve done this forever
our heritage, you know
it’s way too important
to just let it go
so call in security
to protect what is so

it is our right
our history complete
we don’t mind doing
what has to be done
until the next time
with a butt of a gun

the damage we do
to land, water, and air
is not of concern or
cause for despair
we donate most heavily
for orphan repair

the profit which is
the ultimate treasure
can be used to buy
all in good measure
the next exploitation
to protect this great nation

sure some have to die
for others to live
but really we’ve found
it’s just like it is
not one thing to worry
or even forgive

so stack up that money
and oxygen tanks
so we can survive
as others all die
‘cause we got the talent
when the earth’s out of balance

yet some keep on yelling
it’s too late to correct
but what do they know
with no portfolio
our investment appreciates
the longer we go

it’s called progress you sillies
you don’t even know that
if you don’t risk
you’re just scaredy-cats
so count yourselves in
all the way to the end

so come on no worries
for what we do know
is dow jones is up
we’ve got money to burn
at least just enough
to cover the earth’s very last turn!
