Day 365

One whole year… for an entire year I have been posting the same video each day with a little news recap. It started as a threat, “If Trump gets elected I’m posting this video daily.” (It has kind of gotten out of control.) I was pretty sure it would only last a month, but it hasn’t. There are two changes today: 

1. This is my final post. (It’s time for me to take up the violin.)

2. This post is public. (So, all of you who have unfriended me, and those who I have unfriended, can see that I am still at it.)

Okay, let’s cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war. 

The government has been closed for business for a day and most of that day was taken up by republicans trying to brand the shut down as the Schumer-Shut-Down and the democrats calling it the Trump-Shut-Down. President Agent Orange Julius Caesar Salad Hair Lord Dampnut Baron Fatboy Dumpster Fire and Furher Von Trumplestillskin Von Trumpenstein Von Jenius Von Deal-Maker did make it into his office to take a couple photos wearing a white MAGA hat and holding a phone like he was modeling for a mahogany desk in a 1970’s Sears Catalog. “This desk is great for calling world leaders, eating hamburgers, pushing big red buttons not connected to anything, and shuffling papers you haven’t read.” El Presidente Loco didn’t call any legislators, so I’m not sure who he had on the other end. “Ah…is McDonalds open even though the government is closed? Oh… good. I’ll have two Big Macs and five large fries. I forgot, I’m on a diet. Sad. Make that four large fries.” 

VP Mike “Not Worth a Single” Pence was visiting the troops and making sure everyone knew he was doing everything he could to get into every photo op possible. I guess someone should tell him that he could be working on a solution in WA DC. I wouldn’t stick around too long if I was him because it sounds like the troops will not get the NFL playoffs broadcast overseas because of the shutdown. Pence is used to sticking around until the National Anthem is played and then running like Red Grange for the nearest armored car anyway, so he’s ready. 

Trumplestillskin has been tweeting that the democrats are hurting the troops. Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL) gave “Cadet Bone Spurs” a good dose of reality when she took to the podium and called him a five-time deferment draft dodger. Ouch, those are fighting words… Trump is getting a doctor’s note so he doesn’t have to fight Duckworth. His perfect body only has flaws when the draft board and Stormy Daniels are around. 

There is a tiny Nazi march in Tennessee today. I placed a jar in Tennessee and it made all the slovenly Nazis look like they were inside. (Weird huh? This one is for the two Wallace Stevens fans out there.) 

I’m going to close with hope. It’s been a long year for those of us who value people over money and believe that our nation is more than birthplace for lucky people. Yesterday, women (and men) all over our nation marched. They marched peacefully and they marched proudly to resist the MAGA mind fart poisoning our air. The resistance continues and when all voices are heard, when all lives are valued, when America lives up to its identity, we will Make America Great. And you know what goes best with American Greatness? Souvlaki!
