Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Emergency!

It’s an emergency!  But… not really.
Imagine a 911 caller who needs to report a home invasion.  But they start their conversation with the operator talking about a business meeting they had that week (China).  And a friend (U.K.) who’s going through a tough divorce.  And a difficult relationship they have (N. Korea) but they are making progress! 

And oh yeah, finally after twenty minutes, there’s this dude (Mexicans) breaking into my house, maybe come do something about that.

That was the scene in the Rose Garden Friday. This is possibly a good parody of that because it’s WAYYY more coherent.

And then… and then… he went off to play golf.

Yeah. Emergency.

What Will They Do?

My worry about the seemingly inevitable fall of Pumpkin is twofold.  One, how violently will his cult followers react?

Two, how passive will the police be in trying to quell that violence?  Especially where it’s directed against black or brown people.  We could see Tulsa writ large.

National Piss Off A Nazi Day is here! 

Today is a day to vote against

Vote against hate.
Vote against fear.
Vote against fascism.
Vote against tax boondoggles for billionaires
Vote against losing your health care.
Vote against racists and rapists on the Supreme Court
Vote against racists and rapists being called “very fine people”
Vote against the Kremlin’s Five-Year Plan for the USA
Vote against “white nationalism” i.e., racism.
Vote against brown children being stolen from their parents at our borders. 
Vote against American citizens being stripped of citizenship just for being brown
Vote against black people being executed by police just for being. 

But I repeat myself once more: Vote against the Rethuglicans.

Vote against the Rethuglican running in every race on your ballot.  And that means, vote for someone who has a chance of beating them.  Sorry, Greens.  Not this year.  This year, in virtually every race, the only candidate with a shot at beating the Rethuglican is a Dem. 

SO: f*ing vote for your f*ing Dem! 

Vote for your Dems even if they don’t tick your every box or give you all the good feelz.  Save that crap for when the other choice is not a fascist dictatorship.  

So, yeah.  Vote for “not a fascist dictatorship“.  VOTE BLUE!

Fund This Campaign or Else

It’s apparently a tenet of our fascist, capitalist system: healthcare – like everything* – must be run for profit. So if you aren’t rich enough to help fund your local HMO CEO’s Caribbean villa, you can just die.

Now, if you aren’t super-pumped about that option, you could always see if you can make a catchy enough sob video to get all your fellow poors to chip in a few nickels and save your unworthy butt.  Around half of GoFundMe campaigns are Americans begging for the basic healthcare that Rethuglicans are determined to deny them.  Because a black guy tried to make it available.

Nazis Again

Or as Pumpkin calls them, very fine people.

Some of last year’s national shame — CNN 

They’re marching again today in Charlottesville and Washington, DC.  Last year they only killed one person.  I’m sure they would like to expand on that total this time around.  I hope they fail.  In fact, I hope every single person supporting these racist displays fails in every single way imaginable.

All the articles I read wringing their hands over how Pumpkin supporters never waver no matter how much corruption and graft he flaunts, or badly his policies damage them economically.  In my Google+ stream, I have a collection I post these stories to: It’s the Racism, Stupid!

I am eager for America to prove me wrong.  My expectations are nice and low, however, so I am unlikely to be disappointed.
