At the end of this entry (that you're reading now) I have included a link that will return you to the exact spot from where this entry originated. Here ya go ...
» Hillary vs Lord Cromwell
Hillary, give Wall Street its money back. Give them back the whole powder-blue duffel bag stuffed full of fifties and hundred-dollar bills.
More money than most Americans make for doing years of back-breaking work.
By the way, what exactly did you tell them?
That must have been some highly inspirational shit .. for them to "pay" you so much money.
I'm surprised that your speeches havent been leaked to the public yet.
Perhaps, 48 hours before election day, they will all come out. (I'm pretty sure that they will.
I wonder how much somebody might be willing to pay for them. They probably have them already.
How could you not see that coming? What else cant you see coming? Where are you focusing your attention .. to miss the obvious like this?
<ignore this intentional body-text marker>
••• today's entry continues here below •••
.. right after they caused the greatest financial collapse since the Great Depression, which ruined the lives of so many Americans (tho obviously not rich people like you) ..
The tone-deafness on display here is simply astounding to us-the-people.
You must be blinded by something.
Dont you recall how Bush and Cheney fabricated an endless series of fake reasons why the United States needed to Invade Iraq? .. so that the Oil and Defense industries that they represented would benefit. (I'm sure you do.)
Do you surround yourself with yes-people, who tell you everything you want to hear? Did you really get down on your knees .. in order to stuff those fifty- and hundred-dollar bills into your powder-blue duffel bag?
What do you think, Hil, about that part of the Gettyburg Address where Lincoln talks about government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" ?
And the results speak for themselves. The rich get richer, while everybody else struggles to keep their financial noses above water.
See, unsurprisingly, the whole culture has followed our leaders into this money-above-all-else mind set, above even our citizens and their health. Leadership away from this increasingly toxic mind set needs to come from the top.
How can you lead us out of this dysfunctional set of values when you yourself embody the very problem? (that question is totally rhetorical, Hil)
To millions of Americans, either a Hillary presidency or a Trump presidency .. represents their worst nightmare come true. No one will deny that these are some politically dark days for America. What citizen is not concerned about the future of America? Show me the man.
In the minds of many Americans, it's like you are running against the devil himself .. and we-the-people are saying, "Hmmm .. the devil or Hillary .. that's a tough one. I'm gonna need to think about this for a while. Sure, the devil is a nasty, lying fuck .. but, at least he's not Hillary. Has America really come to this .. to a choice between the devil and Hillary? This cant be a good sign. One way or the other, a nightmare is coming true for millions of Americans. It was good while it lasted. Two-hundred-and-forty years is nothing to sneeze at."
Are we the people witnessing the decline of America? The term decline actually sounds too weak .. to describe this political thing, this severely dysfunctional thing that we-the-people are witnessing right before our very eyes.
Three hundred million Americans and this is the best we can do? This is the choice we get? This cant be a good sign.
» The Last Thing Standing Between America and the Apocalypse?
[Tho certainly not the mega-wealthy boys who work over at Goldman Sachs.
Since they know that they own you. Because you gladly took their money.
You know, the powder-blue sachel stuffed full of fifties and hundred-dollar bills
For merely talking them them.
They really only wanted to give you the money. In order to buy you.
They didnt really want to hear what you had to say.
In fact, they would have gladly paid you even more .. not to talk to them.
But appearances need to be managed .. something you obviously have yet to learn.
What do you know about managing appearances, Hillary? Maybe you should write a book on the subject. With all your many years of experience at managing appearances.
Okay .. since writing this, I have read countless pieces decrying a false equivalency. Yes, I get it. I am not saying there is any kind of equivalency. Rather, I am calling attention to dead-even polls .. which themselves are effectively equivalent.
My point is that .. it's not a good sign for America .. when you are running dead-even in the polls with the Donald .. who has never held public office, and whose values and priorities are more than obvious.
John Oliver kicks total ass here .. in making the point that you and Donald are not 'equivalent'. Is that not an outstanding 20-minute piece he did there? (You can see the boost in his confidence after he won the Emmy.) I was totally impressed.
If someone walked up and stabbed me in the heart with an frozen ice-pick .. I dont think that this would hurt me more .. than somebody making a valid point .. that I was more like Bush-n-Cheney.
Most citizens would be like, "Bring me that fucker with the ice-pick."
Speaking of Bush-n-Cheney .. the last thing you want to do as our first woman president .. is to do such a shitty job that Americans will be reluctant to elect a woman again.
You seem to have the same Bush downfall, where you are afraid to appear weak .. so you overcompensate for this by acting tough. (Which is one of the reasons why you come off as inauthentic. Tho, there are other reasons.)
You should be acting and talking from your convictions .. except they change like the seasons .. as your handlers tell you what to think and what to feel about the issues.
Do you even know who you are any more? Or, do you need to go to a morning briefing .. in order to know how and what you are feeling and what you are thinking about the issues today?
This is why you come off as calculating and dishonest. Shifty. Unprincipled. You know.
See, to the voter, such as myself, this appears as tho the candidate is not really interested in right or wrong or taking a moral position .. but rather that they are simply more interested in winning.
And they are more than happy say whatever the fuck they need to say .. in order to win. Can you see that, Hil?
I dont see how you cant, but if you could, then why would you do these things that you do?
Perhaps, from where you're sitting, Hil, things look good. Perhaps America looks like the land of opportunity. But from the citizen bleachers, and especially from the cheap seats, which are 90% of the seats here in American, it doesnt look very hopeful. Here the American promise has become a thinly disguised lie.
Is there no one in all of Washington who refuses to sell our government to the highest bidder? .. for thirty pieces of silver?
» Debbie the Disgraceful and the DNC Stole Our Election
We the People had our moment of opportunity, but you and Debbie the Disgraceful stole that from us. And by hiring her with open arms following her fall from grace, your actions are saying to us-the-people that you whole-heartedly approve of her actions.
This is exactly why the young people voted for Bernie in overwhelming numbers .. because they can see that you are old-school. And old school only works for the rich and the powerful. .. but not for the rest of us.
Politicians like you stumble over one another in their efforts to cater to every whim of the wealthy while the rest of us keep getting sent back to the end of the line. You continually give the wealthy head-of-line privileges.
» I See You, Blow
[ Oct 24, 2016 » I see you, Blow. I have seen other things that you've written about Hillary and Bernie. Some of your positions confuse me.
» Come Get You Some of This Type of Blow
What do you think of that? What do you think of Nicki petting her pussy and calling it blow?
Rad note » this entry on Blow writing about Hillary and Bernie has been moved to it own page .. see here » Blow Defends Hillary's Illegitimacy.
At the end of that page, you'll find a link that will return you here to this exact spot.
Here is something you should be able to relate to, Hil,
These fuckers who say that she would've won anyway are merely speculating. They obviously cannot know such a thing because we never had a fair nominating process. It was all done on an uneven playing field that was rigged from the very start.
This is exactly what we-the-American-people have been railing about for years. And here it is on display yet again.
I will let David Brooks take it from here. You can tell that he is genuinely trying to help.
That is one of the best photos I have ever seen of you. By Doug Mills.
You probably should read David's column more than just once, Hil.
He makes some excellent points.
When you give them their money back, tell them to go fuck themselves.
Then, give them the finger.
Put it right up there in front of their noses .. so they cant miss it. So they dont misunderstand you.
Because, if you cant .. then, maybe we should have a discussion about your abilities.
Your actions speak to us-the-peope in an existential sort of way. When we-the-people see you-our-representative walking out of Goldman Sachs, carrying a powder-blue duffel bag stuffed full of fifty- and hundred-dollar bills ..
Dont you find it a little curious that they only people who see nothing wrong with the Wealthy putting money into the hands of the so-called Peoples' servants ..
It's actually in your best interests to give them their money back. You are going to be asked about it time and time again during the debates.
They are going to ask you the same fucking question in a hundred different ways. "What were you thinking when you took their money? Did you really think that it came with no strings attached? Are you really that naive? Are you really that self-deluded? Cant you see how this corrupts our government? If everybody else was jumping off a bridge, would you do it, too? What do you love more? America or the balance in Hillary's bank account? Do you really feel that an hour's worth of your talking to people in an climate-controlled room is worth more than several year's worth of back-breaking work that most Americans do every day? Do you really have that inflated of an opinion of yourself? What if they offered you $30 million dollars for a thirty-minute speech? Would you have taken it? Have you already sold out the American people for thirty pieces of silver?"
You will be standing there, up on stage thinking, "I shoulda listen to that Rad guy and just gave Wall Street their fucking money back, and admitted that I made a mistake. This money has cost me waay more than its worth. I would gladly give them back ten times that much .. just to be rid of these incessant questions about why I took that fucking money."
What is the basis for their value? (Take your time with this one.)
In God We Trust? I think not.
It certainly seems that way .. at least, from the cheap seats here. From the citizen seats. I know that I shouldnt be surprised, but I am.
» Make Your Choice .. Choose Carefully
Have you ever seen that movie The Counselor, Hill?
One of the big things that this movie focuses on ..
.. is how, once you make a certain decision, and once you take a certain course of action ..
» No Going Back (Ever)
.. that sometimes (not always) » there is no going back.
And, if you are fucked in this decision that you have made .. then, you are fucked for good.
Now .. I'm not saying that this decision to give Wall Street its money back is that kind of decision.
But I do find it curious that this particular part of the story came to mind right after I challenged you to give Wall Street its money back.
Very curious, indeed. Do with this what you will. No pressure, of course. Tho, I know that I would never want such a decision before me.
Such easy money aint really so easy; it only looks easy. You will see what I mean.
Please dont make me say "I told you so." .. yet again.
Because, we can do this the easy way .. or we can do it the hard way.
You know .. one of those places were you and Bill sent so many of those "superpredators". I would be surprised if you had .. very surprised.
I'm pretty sure that you could give a flying happy fuck about them. You obviously care much more about the people at Goldman Sachs. I wonder why. (Not really.)
What if the prisoners could scrape together a few hundred grand? Would that change your mind? Would you go pay them a visit then?
It's a valid question, no?
» Does America Really Give a Fuck About Its Returning Warriors?
Speaking of running the country in a way that only works for a tiny sliver of its citizens .. please fix the fucking VA.
You send these kids into harm's way .. seemingly without giving it very much thought ..
.. and then, when you are done with them, after the IEDs have rattled their brains loose .. you leave them to fend for themselves.
How can you tolerate such a thing?
» Please Figure Out How to Answer the Fucking Phone
Is there no one in all of our government today .. with the ability to render unto our returning warriors .. the things that they need to heal from the missions that our leaders have called upon them and sent them to do?
No member of congress should be allowed to go on vacation .. until the VA learns how to answer the fucking phone .. when a suicide call comes in. (Yes, all of them.)
And it shouldnt be like pulling teeth, either.
Let's show them .. by our actions, of course .. because, as this point, they need more than just pretty-sounding words .. a lot more .. let's show them that we genuinely appreciate their service to our country.
And we can probably start by answering the fucking phone .. when yet another one of them calls because he's thinking of killing himself.
» Is It Okay That 20 Veterans Kill Themselves Each & Every Day?
That sounds like a lot of veterans are killing themselves .. every fucking day .. day after day.
Is it okay with American if 7,300 veterans kill themselves every year? (I hope not.)
We definitely need to figure out how to answer that damn phone.
» Let's Get the VA the Skilled Help It Needs .. to Help Our Veterans Heal Properly
Maybe Wall Street will send over some of their crack talent .. and help the VA design a system that works a little better for our veterans .. who we say that we appreciate so much.
As a way of expressing their appreciation for our returning warriors.
» Trained to Ignore Pain .. No Matter How Bad It Gets
See .. they train these kids never to complain. Never to say that you're hurt. They drill it into them long-n-hard. The warrior mentality.
My point here is that .. just because they might not be crying out for help .. doesnt mean that they arent hurting.
I'm sure that, if your ass got blown up a few times, and you felt like killing yourself .. then, you would be better able to appreciate their struggles.
Then, you might have a little more compassion for them.
And maybe then .. just maybe .. we might figure out a way to answer the fucking phone.
I think this is a good idea for our country .. certainly a step in the right direction .. how 'bout you?
What's that? You're only interested if you can make a buck off the deal? Or only if it makes the stock market go up tomorrow?
» Infuriating, Embarrassing and Saddening
We need to do way the fuck more for them .. than just answering the phone. And we cannot even figure out how to do that reliably.
This section here on the VA letting down our most desperate veterans .. this section I have gone back and added here on July 16, 2016. Surely you see the continuity-of-relevance as to why I inserted it here.
It is yet another illustration of how our government's priorities [ actions speak louder ] work only for a small slice of Americans. A very small slice. Hillary knows the slice that I am talking about.
For the rest of us .. let's hope that they figure out how to answer the fucking phone.
Shame the fuck on you .. and your self-serving values.
Shit like this makes me embarrassed to be an American. The military is trying to claw back money that they promised and paid 10 years ago?
From people who risked their lives for our country. Shame the fuck on you.
How about clawing back the salaries of bank CEOs who defrauded people on a grand scale?
Oh, they're your buddies, right. I almost forgot.
Here's a little doggie bag to take along with you from Stephen Colbert. Somebody give that fucker a kiss for me.
Dont they understand that actions speak loudly? I could add more than a few tales myself.
The end. ■
