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?

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DRAPE IT IN RED, WHITE, AND BLUE!

Well it is crystal clear that Orange Tweet has sold out to the neocon war machine. And because of that we sure can’t work with the Russians!

Nope! It’s the old fucking Clinton-Bush-Obomber-Zionist-Wahhabi Conspiracy all over again.

This could all be settled if we BOMB ISRAEL FIRST and then SAUDI ARABIA! But can’t do that because that would clear things up and where would we sell our fucking bombs?

No, business is just too good.

Oh, by the way Mr. and Mrs. Merica, send your children to their death to protect OUR NATIONAL INTEREST. Fucking morons ……. drape it in red white and blue!

SHE’S A WOMAN!

Tubularsock has always rejected the idea that gender made any difference when it came to strength, competence, or intelligence.

That’s “MAN’S WORK”!

That’s “WOMAN’S WORK”!

Are both stupid and limiting thought patterns.

So when Tubularsock hears from both men and women that “It is time to elect a woman for President” Tubularsock would say IT’S PAST DUE!

However voting for just any woman DOES make a difference.

And a vote for Hillary Clinton is just a false choice if you want something to change in the direction of this country.

tube-angel-of-death

But you may have noticed that WE never got a choice of women to pick to run for President. We got the one chosen for us.

Let Tubularsock give that to you again ….. WE GOT THE ONE CHOSEN FOR US!

There are a lot of very strong competent intelligent women in the United States but Hillary is the one chosen for us ………. folks, that is not the best we can do!

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii comes high on Tubularsock’s chart even if there are areas of disagreement with some of Gabbard’s positions. She is honest, intelligent and fair minded.

And Jill Stein of the Green Party has integrity and is intelligent and honest.

But Hillary Clinton was CHOSEN FOR US!

Now what does THAT tell you?

RIGGED comes to Tubularsock’s mind.

Ever the optimist, Tubularsock was just thinking of the future of the United States’ leadership and insanity.  It is rather nice to have both of these concepts wrapped up in one package. And then we can tie it in a bow of annihilation and the package is complete. Just think, Christmas early. Excited yet?
