LIES WE LIVE BY: AMERICA

The main thing Tubularsock appreciates about OrangeDufus is that he has brought to the light what the United States has been hiding from its own citizens from its founding and this deception was and is to this day the deliberate fabrication that our country REALLY believes in and stands for Justice for all, Freedom for all, and a system that rewards the hard working with a future of prosperity for all.

And as for “moral” leadership? Just when did that EVER exist in our history?

Nope ……. never happened! And YOU know it and your neighbors know it but you push on believing it is true because IF IT IS NOT then who’s running things?

To Tubularsock, it is much like the entire 9/11 facade ……… the story of what occurred is a lie of the highest order but even today when it is brought up people will go the long way around the room to avoid facing the “possibility” that their government lied to them.

WHY? Simple. “If Daddy lies to me then who is in charge and who will PROTECT ME!
Even if the next day he beats me again.

And even more outrageous to Tubularsock and every THINKING person is that “OUR” government LIED us into the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War to name the short list and the citizens will follow like sheep into the next one and even allow their children to die …………. FOR NOTHING. NOTHING!

It is tiring to watch but the fear and propaganda is fast and furious. And people worry about the fucking Russians ……… go fucking look in the mirror America! YES YOU!

And with all of that we are entering into the 2020 election and if you haven’t noticed, NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

The Roman Bread and Circus in form of the CELL PHONE and social media runs more shit faster than in any other time in the history of the world BUT the population may be dumber. Go figure.

And with G5, when in full operation, we’ll ALL have an ORANGE TAN like the OrangeDufus mixed with fried brains with soy sauce courtesy of Huawei!

And yet the beat goes on …………

And we have the OrangeDufus to thank for the exposing all of this on the obscene level because he is so unfiltered.

He is a TOTAL ASS (not a 1/2 ass) and “thinks” (always a questionable endeavor with him) that what he does is “normal”. A classic deranged mind on steroids.

As opposed to the Step-en-fetch-it Kneegrow, Obummer who talks the smooth jive but was a slave to wall street banks and the military industrial complex and was paid handsomely for bending over and taking it up the ass for the gipper!

And we can’t forget, the total imbecile BabyBush and his fucking CIA daddy for lying us into war with Iraq and destabilizing the entire Middle East using the EVIL PERSONIFIED Prick-Cheney as his lead homey! Fuck them both!

Or how about President Blue Stain Dress Slick Willy and his besty friend Jeffrey Epstein spending all that time on Petalphile Island. Presidential material for sure!

And not last and not least but Tubularsock just has to bring forth head up his ass Alzheimer-Ron. A low time low for presidential standards.

Does any of this point to why the U.S. has been on a rapid decline which may really end with the Dumb-Shit-OrangeDufus?

But what OrangeDufus has done for us is to highlight just how corrupt and dysfunctional the U.S. political establishment is and has been ALL ALONG.

And that is why Bernie is a breath of fresh air and the reason that his CHANGE IN DIRECTION is so frightening the the status quo.

The corporate Democraps will lose their corrupt grip on the system and so will the corrupt Republicant’s!

And you can tell just how scary it is because the Clinton/Obummer wing of the corporate Democraps are willing to let the OrangeDufus win rather than support Bernie!

WHY?

And the reason is as simple and as obvious.

With a Bernie win THEY lose power and the corrupt money they take along the way because they hold that power.

The Republicants are in the same boat!

You see, what we have here is THE CORRUPT DEALINGS of both as well as either/or parties: The Democraps and the Republican’ts and they trade back and forth the power so as to keep their corrupt government contracts and money flow.

Bernie is the monkey wrench in the gears of corruption and THAT is why both parties will do whatever necessary to stop Bernie and save THEIR gravy train. EVEN IF HE WINS!

And in the process ………. FUCK YOU MR. AND MRS. AND MISS AND MS. AND YOUR PRONOUN OF CHOICE AMERICA!

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here. Bernie has his own baggage. His total foreign policy record is not to the liking of Tubularsock BUT it is not out of line with what traditional American foreign policy has been …….. complete domination of the world!

No, Bernie’s strength lies in SOCIAL REFORM and fairness within the U.S. boarders.

Medicare4All, the Green New Deal, free public college, universal free child care and always the resounding chorus of “HOW DO WITH PAY FOR THIS?”

We pay for this the exact same way we pay for CONTINUOUS WAR! That’s how.

Ever notice that there is ALWAYS enough to bloat the Pentagon Budget but never enough for child care? Ever wonder why?

Simple answer: there is more profit for the few with WAR than helping the citizen with a chance to live a prosperous life. Think on this! It explains a lot!

NOW.

Even with a Bernie win (if that is even possible in a system of cheats and scoundrels) those who control the power are not going to give up nor are they going to roll over and play dead.

The powerful will stonewall the system BIG-TIME to prevent any changes where they lose power and PROFIT, period!

So IF Bernie does win, it will take those who elected him not to go back to sleep like American voters always do after an election (you know, “let daddy handle it from here”) but to stay active as a mass movement and support the changes needed aggressively.

Like: Shut down the system until it responds to the changes necessary for a free and fair DEMOCRACY!

Stop buying shit until change happens. Remember a loss of profit in this system speaks louder than photos of starving children!

Can this happen? Well, “Tubularsock Has A Dream”, and unlike other dreamers Tubularsock won’t be standing on any motel balconies any time soon.

 

 

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”!

 

TRUMP NOWHERE WALL— END OF THE LINE

 

Here’s a question for you America First Lovers. As OrangeTweet continues to promote a useless and limited wall to nowhere, Russia, India and Iran are working toward a 7,200-km long lane mixing sea and rail routes essentially linking the Indian Ocean with the Persian Gulf through Iran and Russia and further on down the road, to Europe.

The Japanese are looking toward a revamped Trans-Siberian Railway to improve trade connections with Russia and China. This too will help tie North and South Korea and Vietnam into closer economic ties as well.

There is no invasion here. No military attacks on sovereign countries or military bases being forced on any of them from the outside.

Just maybe that American Imperialism isn’t looking so good and the fact that we are losing on every front may mean that the U.S. is doing something drastically WRONG!

You know, if you really have something beneficial to offer, people will gravitate toward it. Not fight it. They’ll steal it!

Interesting that China and Russia are putting huge sums of money into infrastructure while we keep dumping huge sums of money into military exploits.

And on top of that the “best” plan is an ego-wall for the emperor!

The times have reversed …….. the end of the Han Dynasty in America?

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!

 

 

LET’S WAR SOME MORE!

Well thank the Gods that THAT’S OVER!

Another 9/11 has hit the history dust bin again and we are still in the dark over just which Saudi and Carlyle Group investment scheme helped to do it.

 

But hell that is water under the bridge so really who cares anyway. Everybody is dead and buried and what in the fuck do they want, they all got a gillion dollar memorial and tourist book store!

We’ve got bigger fish to fry!

And by golly we’ll poke somebody with a stick hard enough to have them attack say like a rowboat floating next to the USS BULLSHIT and we’ll have that UNIFYING WAR each president starts to rally the citizen behind the president. NO MATTER HOW FUCKING STUPID HE HAPPENS TO BE!

And before you anal retentive Trumpites get all pushed out of shape over the above sentence, well it refers to Baby Shrub and the gaggle of assholes that occupied his administration.

Not that Orange Tweet isn’t attempting to corner the market on “STUPID” but Shrub beat him to it on this subject.

And it is true that once the “General” took over as “Chief of Staff” Orange Tweet is learning to bend over for the neocons so ALL IS GOOD in dip-shit-land.

So will it be North Korea? Russia? China? Nope, everyone is tried of hearing about them already. Boring!

 

 

No we have to have another Grenada! You remember 1983 and the proposed THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES by the Caribbean Island of Grenada, right?

Parkinson-riddled-brain-dead-Ronald-Reagan sent in 10,000 American troops to protect the U.S. against several hundred lightly armed policemen and Cuban construction workers.

The U.S. military lost 19 and incurred 116 injuries during the eight day “war” but peace came at last and Paul Scoon was reinstated as the Governor-General of Grenada who represented the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

And of course the American public supported the invasion even though it was a flagrant violation of international law. Because the United States is a government of laws not of men. Or so the story is told. Go figure that out.

BUT WE WON! And this was our “brave?” military’s first operation conducted after our Grand War with Vietnam which we LOST at pretty much ever criteria one could list.
So you can see how important the War With Grenada (WWG) was then. We really are winners, no really we are, and our military will kill unarmed men, women and children in any number to prove it!

So presently we have an entire 5 sided building filled with dedicated workers finding just the “right” place to attack next in the name of freedom.

Hell we need a win!

 

 

Just what is it about this constant “forever war” syndrome that we find ourselves in as a country?

Are YOU really that afraid of OTHER?

And just what is it that we don’t understand about people in another country risking their lives to protect their country from aggression?

Wouldn’t YOU protect our country from aggression from a foreign country if they were attacking us?

So just who is this fabled AGGRESSOR?

Well, that’s simple ………… THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. None other!

Now recently we have gone through two Presidential election cycles where the WAR ISSUE was a major factor. And in both cases the winners were Obummer and Orange Tweet both of whom indicated that they wanted to alter the country’s direction away from “foreign wars”.

Oh sure, the American public bought it …….. they always do.

Historically you’ll find that the American public has ALWAYS been against going to war. In fact, in most cases you’ll find that it is true of most populations world wide.

So why is there so much war?


In the first three months of 2017 U.S.-led bombing reached 10,918 bombs and missiles dropped on Syria alone. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

After 16 years we are still fighting in Afghanistan. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

We have totally destroyed Iraq but are still fighting there. Another country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

Have you noticed a trend here?

Let’s, for the fun of it, jump back to Vietnam for a second. The number of people we killed in Vietnam and the numbers of American that were stupid enough to go to “protect American interests” and die in a complete an utter failure is just shameful.
The arch enemy that was Vietnam “won” that war and remained “communist” and THEN in 2016:  “HANOI — The Obama administration announced Monday that the United States would fully lift a longstanding U.S. embargo on lethal arms sales to Vietnam . . .” (Washington Post 5/23/16)

So all it took was an arms deal to be friends? Think on this. All those people dead and now we are selling arms to Vietnam that will kill more people?

OMG ——The Russians! We have to protect ourselves from those aggressive Russians so we threaten them with economic sanctions, nuclear first strike, we place missiles in Europe pointed at them, we build up American military forces at their boarders AND WE CALL THEM AGGRESSIVE?

Yet, the U.S. makes exceptions to sanctions against Russia by lifting bans on Russia’s sales to us of Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines. “It is worth mentioning that Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines, possessing unparalleled performance US firms have yet to match, will be used to launch payloads into Earth orbit for the US Department of Defense.” (Activist Post 1/7/16)

And, “The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday eased economic sanctions on Russia, allowing some cyber-security transactions with the Russian Federal Security Service . . .” (USATODAY Feb. 2, 2017)

So the U.S. can agree to trade contracts and cooperation with Russia, BUT WE CAN’T AGREE ON PEACE WITH EACH OTHER?

And what do we agree with the Russians on?

Rockets??? So, where is all this “fear” we are supposed to believe in that Russia is so dangerous?

Cyber-security transactions??? After all that fear of Russians hacking the last election?

 

 

And just check out American oil interests in partnership with Russian firms!

But hell, that’s not all!

Look into JUST the Trump Family contractual agreements with CHINA alone. It will make even your eyes become slanted!

Finally, Tubularsock will save your reading time and just bottom line this for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRUMP’S VagCHINA DIALOGUE

Now here is something scary for you. Donald El Orange is having a meet-up with China’s President Xi Jinping at Mar a Lago.

Funny how everything sounds “foreign” in that sentence to Tubularsock’s American ears.

They will be talking about trade policy.

Well, not El Orange. He doesn’t even know how to hold a chop stick let alone how many container cargo shipping containers it takes to ship Chinese chop sticks to our shores.

So he’s not much good except with positive or negative platitudes.

And THERE ARE NO others in this current administration that knows ANYTHING about China.

“But without a competent and proven Asia specialist team in place, the fog of uncertainty will only thicken over the Trump administration’s commitment to and understanding of the region.” Heydarian & Crispin, Asian Times 4/6/17

Now there are some guys that have been mentioned to take on the Asian “portfolio” like Jonathan Galaviz, a business consultant and frequent commentator on the gaming and casino industries in Asia may be picked to a top Asia-oriented State Department post.

And who doesn’t need a specialist in “gaming and casino” skills when dealing with China!

“Trump’s inability to assemble a team of senior expert officials to direct the Pentagon, State Department and National Security Council (NSC) policies toward Asia is one of several vacuums . . . to emerge in his two-and-a-half-month old administration. Critics say the vacuum has resulted in wild lurches in policy and pronouncements, and sewn confusion with allies and adversaries alike.” Heydarian & Crispin, Asian Times 4/6/17

So far Donald’s Asia Policy seems to have been threats of potential trade actions against various Asian nations, including China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam and others.

So the old fashion Dale Carnegie, How To Win Friends And Influence People is not a strong suit in Donald El Orange’s bailiwick.

But NEVER FEAR! Whenever Tubularsock is confronted with major “Oriental” dilemmas, Tubularsock puts down his double neat shot of Single Barrel Kentucky Wild Turkey and reaches for his favorite IMPORTED Japanese Sake dispensing with those small little cups and drinking it Wild-Western-Style from the bottle!

THAT’S TUBULARSOCK’S ASIAN TRADE POLICY!

QUAGMIREocracy

You may not have a job, or a house, or health care, or pre-school care, or enough to eat, or any care if you are old because those things are NOT ENTITLEMENTS!

Those things are all examples of YOU sucking off the system!

But there is one thing that is always maintained in this great democratic nation of ours and that is a total-complete-ironclad-guaranteed-over-the-top Foreign Policy of,

Seriously, don’t think for a moment that the United States Military Industrial Complex can not maintain a continued state of QUAGMIRE!

THAT is what they do best. And they have proved it!

Korea

Vietnam

Afghanistan

Iraq

Libra

Syria

And we can all hope with Trump that we can get deeper involved in Syria and Korea which for all practical purposes will have us facing off Russia and China to boot!

Ahh, that American Military just can’t seem to win ANYTHING except body-bags coming home!

Now just why is that?

Well, Tubularsock figured out as a young boy with his friends while playing “WAR” that the enemy was WE!

You see, the boys in the neighborhood would divide up in teams and we would figure out who was going to be the “GOOD GUYS, AMERICA” and the “BAD GUYS, GERMANY AND/OR JAPAN.

Now all this was formulated by the movies of the day and you all know how WAR PROPAGANDA works being as true today as it was in the 1950’s.

But for Tubularsock playing “WAR” was enlightenment because Tubularsock discovered that the “driving force” of the activity was to WIN! There was no good or bad! And most importantly as a “soldier” you were of no importance on either side except to win or die.

It was at that point Tubularsock made up his mind that war was dumb and that he would NEVER join a military.

But to seal that deal Tubularsock did join the Cub Scouts because you got to hang out with your friends and do “neat” things but it didn’t last long and as they started to “recruit” our “den” to join the Boy Scouts Tubularsock had seen enough movies to know about the HJ in Germany and the Great Japan Sincerity Association in Japan. (Remember those news of the world shorts that movie theaters ran before the main features? Tubularsock paid attention!)

Both, in Tubularsock’s mind, were just different renditions of the Boy Scouts. And thus pro-nationalist organizations which prepared youth for war!

So at the ripe old age of 10 Tubularsock decided never to join a group, a military or a war! THE DIE WAS CAST!

BY DESIGN?

Tubularsock is sitting in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker over looking Washington D.C from Oakland, CA having his cup of organically grown free trade coffee and thinking about architecture. (see: THE BUNKER TOUR)

Thoughts like that come up in Tubularsock’s mind all the time. Maybe just to drown out all that political shit that comes across Tubularsock’s desk. But Tubularsock figures it’s ALL political at some level! Whatever.

Anyway, does art influence society or does society influence art? Yeah, it is a chicken and egg question and we all know the answer to THAT question!

So lets talk China and subliminal architecture. Sound fun?

When an architect sits down at his drawing table does that architect create building drawings from just what comes across his mind at that moment?

Or does that architect draw from structural experience?

Or even more to the point ……… is the design some kind of subliminal message?

Well lets just see and then YOU can decide.

This is the design and first stages of construction of the headquarters of THE PEOPLE’S DAILY NEWS in China.

The People’s Daily News is much like NPR in the United States, the BBC in England or RT from Russia.

You know, government propaganda outlets.

And because of that, is the Chinese-architect-design a message and understanding of the The People’s Daily News screw job on the public and thus just a fuck you to the propaganda?

pre construction China
But when the building was complete it looked like this.

post construction China

But hidden in the design is really a fuck you government! Or not.

And then let us look at the finished design of the new Beijing Airport.

airport China

Maybe Chinese architects just have other things on their mind.

You know from your own experience that when you do tedious work that your mind can wander to things you may be more interested in, right?

This is not to say that all idle thoughts lead one to say, ahh sex but Tubularsock figures that some may.

And then there are just basic functionary thoughts.
Like the North China University and Electric Power building.

univerity, China
But thinking of flushing experiences leads us to the Chinese Trademark Office of the State Administration for the Industry and Commerce.

Oh yes, the long and winding road.

Here we find a 14 year old Chinese Trademark for:

Trump china
Shenzhen Trump Industrial Co, Ltd produces TOILETS! They provide 1 billion toilets every year according their web page. The “U” in the above logo represents a toilet seat ….. clever, yes?

Which just may explain why Donald is the way he is ……. or not.

Tube flag burningFOURTH OF JULY, 2016

 

Oh yeah, The 4th Of July. This country is 240 years old today and as a nation we are doing quite nicely destroying everything our founding fathers philosophically created.

Today we have hit the pinnacle of stupidity by creating a situation where the height of national leadership is between dufus one and dufus two. And because we have discovered a “woman” who is as fuck-up as a “man” we think we have made some sort of progress.

What we have accomplished is the choice to “vote” (a meaningless term, in truth) for TWO EVILS!

Finally we have broken that mold of having to “vote” (a meaningless term, in truth) for the “LESSER” of two evils to the ultimate prize of putting our support toward EVIL!

You have got to admit that that is American Exceptionalism at its finest!

So get out the old red, white, and blue and hang that fucking flag out on your doorstep so at least Tubularsock will know the people to avoid in his neighborhood when he does come out of his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA! (see: The Bunker Tour)

But really, we as a country have made progress. We now know that a “Black-man” is just as fucked up as a “White-man”. And really you can’t trust buying a used car from either.

And speaking about buying, the American pastime (not baseball), we Americans spend over ONE BILLION DOLLARS a year on …… wait for it ……. FIREWORKS! Yep, fireworks. That is according to the APA. Yes, we even have an APA. Oh, in case you were not up on American reality the APA is The American Pyrotechnics Association!

Really, a lobbyist group to advocate for MORE FIREWORK SALES!
And most of these fireworks are imported from China! You know, that country we can’t “trust” so Obummer pivoted toward Asia with our military to ahhh …… hmmm, maybe to protect the APA’s interest.

And this is a business Tubularsock wants to get into. Think about it. Some American smuck will work a twelve hour work day at a job he hates and then goes out and buys a loud, smoky firework that when lit lasts about 6 seconds for $14.95. And he’ll buy eight of them! It would be proper to call him a dumb shit but Tubularsock will refrain from even giving this dumb shit dumb shit recognition!

Tube America:china
And to top this bull shit off, Americans love to express patriotism on Independence Day by displaying the stars and stripes. And according to the U.S. Census Bureau the U.S. imports FOUR MILLION DOLLARS worth of American flags from overseas, including $3.6 million from China!

But that is not all folks! According to the National Retail Federation it is expected that the spending on food over the “holiday weekend” will be in the neighborhood of $6.7 billion. That is a lot of fucking hot dogs to choke on! Or maybe Chinese Take-Out to keep with our trend.

And you thought it was all about patriotism didn’t you!
