The Trump Train

All aboard the Trump Train.Trust me, there will be no pain.

From Washington D.C. to Moscow because of a bet, it is a journey you will not forget.

For it will be a journey that is keeping travel great. For it is travel along an amazing landscape.

Big beautiful vistas along the way, make for a gorgeous day.

With a gauge or track width of five megalithic yards spent, it is a distance that is said to be the height of the forty fifth president.

Looking to seek refuge? Not only is this train fast, it is huge.

Able to carry many homes with a view, amazing comfort with company it’s true.

Looking to travel to Beijing? The “Benevolent Overland Neutrality Express” spur will take you there faster than Bing.

Yes this is a Green train, efficient and clean with a shiny set of rims, it is the same shade of green as the coach of the Kim’s.

This coach is better than the rest, it is finer, for truly it is the best.

Under the Bering strait it goes, to increase commerce amongst those who were once foes.

You think I jest? a ticket to ride this thing that is better than a being in a jet.

The Electric Trump Truck Acid Trip

The realization that I lived in a Fascist society came to me as a literal blow to the back of the head. I then wondered where was I. At times I still wonder

I guess it was my naivete that lead me there. My liberal friends had warned me of violence. I however believed in open debate, I had chided my friends that political violence happens in other countries. This is America, we are above that. I was used to open debate without consequence.

I had realized that the media lies politically. The Democrats are blatantly pro union, and the media is totally unionized. I had come to not expect any objectivity. It was too easy to pick stories that support a point of view. Having spent most of my life on the factory floor I had the point of view that unions wreck industry. Unions come in with all sorts of promises, there may be a short term gain, then the factory closes, and everybody is out of a job. Happens over and over again, like clockwork. It is a scenario that supports globalization. The “investors” just build another factory in a low wage country, and reap the profits. Unionism is not a long term solution. Watch the demise of unionized media.

Dissatisfied with big money bought and paid for politicians, I decided to support a politician that went in on his own dime. Hey, if he could run sixteen golf courses he should have some managerial ability. I listened and his main premise was the ills of the country could be overcome with growth. I was in.

I and many others liked the premise of growth. In my head five percent growth would cure all ills. I would publicly express my support. One of the ways I expressed my support was to put a campaign sign in the back of my truck and drive around. It was fun, I could basically just drive around with no real destination. I drove on roads that I had never drove on before. People would give me an enthusiastic thumbs up. Life was good.

Then the media realised that candidate Trump was doing too well. Although the candidate had a history of working with unions, he was not explicitly pro union. Objectivity be examined. There was an explicitly pro union candidate. The media then went to take the candidate down. Yup, it didn’t work. Too many people saw through the duplicity. Then something unprecedented happened. The press, and their allies attacked the candidates supporters. I then noticed that when I drove the Trump Truck around people would give me the finger. There were still as many thumbs up as there were before, however the finger was a new phenomena. I could have expected thumbs down if there was disagreement, and there were some. I respect a person’s right to an opinion. As the press ramped up their hateful rhetoric of the candidate and his supporters, there was an increasing rage on the highways. I found it most interesting that I noticed geographical differences in people’s reactions to the Trump Truck. I guess that I shouldn’t have been surprised, however I went into the endeavor without prejudice or expectation.

I would listen to NPR on the radio, I found it disturbing when they advocated “going beyond your personal morals when attacking Trump supporters”. Yes society now advocated violence against people like me. It wasn’t long before I was attacked. I personally believe it was by paid political thugs, though I can’t prove it. The funny part, or is it a really sad part, is I had been warned of violence by a liberal friend earlier in the day.

I recently had a conversation with Bill Ruger Jr about manufacturing automobiles. He is the only person I know that designed and manufactured his own automobile. I had asked him what would you do differently if you were to do it again. I am always interested in manufacturing so I thought it was a good question. His reply surprised me, “Nothing it was perfect” he said. He was very emphatic too. I personally think something can always be improved, however sometimes things are a moment in time that cannot be changed.

So what would I do to improve the Trump Truck? Or was it a perfect moment in time? The first thing I would absolutely do to the Trump Truck would be to add full time video surveillance. If I only had the license plate number of my attackers I could report them. Would that have really helped though, it is quite evident that the system is politically corrupt. I could end up in more trouble if I pointed out corruption. Still I would want a record of the journey. Another thing, maybe I would want an electronic billboard instead of a campaign poster. Then I could tailor the message to the locale. Additionally if the signage would be visible at night, I would not have to quit at sunset. Something else I thought of was to do a different truck with her, a Hillary Truck. That way responses could be compared, sort of a poll if you will. Would Hillary have gotten as many positives, or negatives? I do not know. I would guess that such a truck would have been meet with public indifference. Finally I may have needed a gun. Would the thugs have been deterred? Who knows. Bill Ruger Sr once said that a honest man needs no more than five bullets, he may have been right. There were only four thugs sent to take me out.

Finally if I were to do it over, and had the means, I would make the Trump Truck electric. Just to make them wonder. Plus it would be nice to have some outstanding acceleration to get the hell away from them fascist thugs.

Although completely frightened I did make it home after the attack. It was then that the words of my friends ran through my head. When I made the connection I fainted dead away striking my head against the bedpost.

Yes fascism permeates our country. I think Trump must have known that when he decided to run. Then again there is the possibility that he was as surprised as I. So I will say Bill Ruger Jr is right. Despite all the possibilities there was a moment in time when the Trump Truck was a perfect moment of mind altering clarity.

 

Unintended Consequences

Talk about unintended consequences, Chicago will probably now be MAGA-Country. Jussie Smollett, thank you. Now more than half the voters of the great city of Chicago realise that their esteemed Democrat leaders are nothing more than self serving fascists.

Not only are their elite hearts filled with hate, they don’t care. So plain to see too.

The Good Life

Before I start let me preface this this by saying, by most measurements or metrics, I am below median. That would indicate that most are better off than I. At least in this country. I also realize that many are not as well off.

We live in good times, look at history. Living today is better than living at anytime before. We have food from around the world. Our homes are warm or cool. We live longer, and have easier lives. The poor today live better than the wealthy of before. Jobs are plentiful, warfare is rare. The economy is growing, on the whole, we live in good times.

In terms of history, how many people had flushing toilets? We do! Toilets keep us healthy, and let us live longer. That is just the beginning of advantages we enjoy. Cars, planes, spacecraft too. The list is endless.

So why are so many people dissatisfied? I am not sure, could be simple human nature to complain. Sometimes people just like to complain, it’s their nature. Then again we have so much, maybe some think we have not enough? Could be.

When I was growing up we were taught that we are better than the Russians. I had to assume that the Russians were taught that they were better than us. In the end the space race settled the score. Today what are the measurements or metrics? Economic growth? Something different?

Culpability? Media influence. Pardon, let me rephrase that. Media influence. Could be that I repeat myself. That’s it! The media seeks to influence, to do so they repeat and repeat themselves until they influence. Why do they influence, with all this prosperity they want more. To bad they want it at the expense of others. Bubba’s basic fact. Our major media outlets are completely fascist. The logic for that statement is has been explained in the history of this blog. That brings me around full circle to the MAGA hat. Although I realize that it wouldn’t really matter what was on the hat, hate would be generated because of success. The Democrats political machine would oppose any and all opposition. I do not think anyone expected that the MAGA hat would be so successful. Well actually one person did. The creator Donald. It was the tweak “Again” that exposed the corrupt machine for what it was. For he knew it for what it was.

Again and again corruption is endlessly exposed. We are great, we just have to acknowledge it. To control the media is to control the nation. Unfortunately we do not elect who controls the media. You, I pause for dramatic effect. Yes. You either believe the media, or you don’t.

Headgear Harassment and Headaches

After the election I put my MAGA hat on a shelf in the garage. It has remained there ever since. The harassment I received for wearing it was quite a headache. Trump was president, he needed my help no longer. I raise my glass to his success.

Recently I have read that people should be ashamed to have a MEGA hat in their attic. To have MEGA hat in storage is the same as having a KKK hood. I have read this more than once. I have personally heard people compare President Trump to Hitler on multiple occasions. Typically I respond that I shook his hand. Sometimes the attacks get worse. It is my opinion that the hat for some reason makes people crazy.

I was not offended by Hillary or Bernie hats. At times I have found the Muslim headscarf distasteful. My best man was murdered by Islamic extremists. I also view it as a symbol of the subjugation of women. However I can also accept the headscarf as a stylish accessory. I guess it may be a matter of context. However I have never harassed anyone for their headgear. My pain is my own.

If people are just minding their own business in a public setting, their headgear should not be an issue. Or should it?

I am thinking of the pink hats. Pink hats seem to have been a public call for the overthrow of a legitimately elected government, because of, well hate. Millions of people do not spontaneously don matching headgear and take to the streets calling for violence. Such coordination is not a sign of independent thought. Sorry to say this, but after some reflections the pink hat movement is a sign of singular thought. My definition of singular thought is Fascism. Something that I do not support.

At first I was impressed by the creativity of the pink hat crowd. They are talented people. I also was impressed that they had the time and money to protest like they did. I had to assume that they were members of a privileged class.

It is my observation that the well off are anti Trump, the working poor are very pro Trump. Then there is the geographical differences. Trump had his rallies, and then there were the protests, and protests, and protests…

Endless protests of the false flag variety. The privileged are upset. Why? They call me names because?

White Supremacy? Never met one. According to a website that tracks such things there were fewer than two thousand instances recorded last year. That includes anything like a swastika in a bathroom stall. Any report is tabulated, I looked it up. Compare that to the millions of people with pink hats running around. Their hate has modified my behavior.

I made my own hat. I have never worn it in public, I look at on the shelf next to the MEGA hat, and wonder what to do.

Defeated

You have to know when to fold them. President Trump lost the shutdown battle, that is quite apparent. Nancy and her anti wall soldiers can claim victory. Personally I thought that there would be a compromise. But I was wrong.

I guess I was quite naive about the state of the Republic. My liberal friends warned me years ago that the Republic did not exist. They did not come out and say we are in living in a Fascist society, however they indicated that deviance from the liberal party line would not be tolerated. I didn’t believe them at the time.

What I have observed in our great society is that pink hats are socially acceptable, and red hats are not. Another observation is that pink hats are well off financially, and the red hats are struggling workers. I could go on but that is the basic observation.

The privileged pink hatted society finds any organization of the working class of red hatted deplorables, well sorry to say this, worthy of attack. Sure the wearers of the red hats find the wearers of the pink hats outrageous. However I am completely unaware of any violence perpetrated against the pink hats, I certainly do not advocate violence either. Not only is there random, and organized violence against red hats. It has been normalized. Not only that, creative forms of entrapment are all the fashion.

Sure the battle has been lost, however the war is not over. Sometimes it pays to withdraw, and then fight another day.

Life Is Good

As I sit here during a cold dark Martin Luther King holiday I will admit to being miffed. Martin Luther King said some very good things that I agree with, I will sum it up with my belief Dr King was an advocate for peaceful equality. My animosity with the holiday is that it replaced an old holiday in this state that welcomed in Spring. I have been told that the change in holidays was due to politics. It figures. I was always happy to celebrate the bright days of Spring.

I still celebrate the bright days of Spring in my own way. The little green shoots of fresh vegetation, the smell of the soil. The joy of mowing the lawn. Life is good. I don’t need a government sanctioned holiday. So to be mindful, I wonder what the Reverend King would think of today’s political world. I would like to think that the teachings of Reverend King were recently on display on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In the face of aggressive racial hatred one boy stood his ground and smiled, at a multitude of hateful aggressors. I would like to think Dr King would be proud of the actions of the boy. However I am quite sure that Reverend King would be saddened, if not devastated by the actions of the aggressors on the very steps where he announced “I have a dream”.

I watched the video, at first I was confused by what the boy had done to be the recipient of so much hate. Then I was reminded that you cannot spell hate without hat. Yes, our fascist society cannot tolerate a red hat. It matters not who wears it. I am to simple engage in identity politics. Like Dr King, I believe we should be treated equally, and judged by our actions. Fortunately for the boy there is an alternative media in this fascist society. Additional footage provided by the alternative media showed that the allegations against a group of boys was false, and made up. For the time being, there is a alternative to fascist falsehoods propagated by the mainstream media outlets. Without the alternative there would be no justice.

So I raise my glass to Nick Sandmann, the boy who rose to the ideals expressed by Reverend Dr Martin Luther King on the steps of a great monument to freedom of all, the Lincoln Memorial. I am heartened by the fact that there was no violence. I have seen violence against those in the red hats. Violence that has brought me unhappy flashbacks. Hopefully we, as a society can avoid such unhappiness. For somebody in my station, which is below median. I believe we are better off than we were before. For that I am happy, and I believe life is good. For the young, like Nick Sandmann and his friends, the future is theirs. It is my belief that the ideals of morality that they exemplify will defeat the selfish fascism that is prevalent today.

You can’t negotiate with fascism. It has to be defeated. With the principles expressed by Dr King, and Nick Sandmann. It can be defeated.
