All Hail Biden

I see President Biden’s face all over the imternet. I guess that is not a surprise, as Trump’s face was all over the internet, and still is to a certain extent. Yet with Joe there is no negative verbiage associated with his face. Yet I do not feel happy. All Hail Joe, the great cardboard cutout.

I see folks scurry around looking for the teats of the new regime. Even myself, I wonder if anything will come my way. Yet I do not hold high expectations. One would think that those conversations would have already happened. Any farmer knows the teats of a bull have no milk. Of course I am not saying Joe was full of bull, yet some of his biggest supporters are going unrewarded.

Of course President Biden may think he is rewarding his supporters. When he was in my town, he thought he was in Vermont. I guess the $15 minimum wage will be our reward. It is what Bernie wanted.

I will say there were plenty of Biden signs in town before the election, they are now almost all gone. Out in the countryside, there are still many Trump signs. You would expect those to be gone. I had hid mine before the election, out of fear. I was very impressed by the hate machine. I still am. So I wonder, reward or retribution?

So hail Biden, and look for those teats. It can’t be all bull.



I am teaching some young friends how to drive. It is about empowerment. They are learning how to drive my truck. I figure if they can drive a truck, they can drive anything. They are doing an excellent job!

Of course I am proud of their accomplishments. So I shared their accomplishments with a few friends. My smart friends said they could learn from my young friends. A few friends thought I was crazy. Others asked if what I was doing legal, and wished me luck. One suggested a way to help.

You might call my young friends disadvantaged, yet they are very smart. I believe that their future is bright. They are here to learn, and maybe get some guidance. Most of all they are driven. I mean that in both a literal and figurative sense. They never touched a steering wheel. I consider driving a form of freedom, that is something that I wanted to share with them. They are not really free until they determine their own destiny. In my simple mind, there are more options in life of you can drive. I figured I could share freedom with them.

I have a friend who is a lawyer. I have been told he works with the ACLU. Something I could believe. I showed him a picture of a couple of my friends next to the truck after they had perfectly parked it. They were so happy! You know what he said. He said I was being mean. He said that I should be teaching them to drive a fiesta or something small. I see no reason why young ladies should not be able to drive a truck if they wanted to. What a chauvinist!

I mentioned this to one of my young friends, she was highly indignant. I try not to let things bother me, politically or otherwise. In actuality, I am quite accepting, or so I think. Sure I may write my views here, yet I pretty much keep them to myself. Sometimes it may be hard to read me, as I say so little about my feelings. Typically I am afraid to express myself. Probably because I have been belittled in the past. Others are more than willing to express their views, when they do they seem to belittle. I can think of a few people like that. Is chauvinism empowerment? Some think so.

So after one month one of my young friends was driving on the highway. I am so proud of her! I was looking forward to telling my lawyer friend what a great job she was doing. There was always the remote chance that she might need legal representation. Or maybe a helpful suggestion or two legally for people in her situation.

I never had a chance. He delivered a bitter monologue about Hitler. The speech was directed at me. He knew that I supported Trump, something that seems unforgivable in his mind. He also had a huge fascination with guns. He was quite knowledgeable, and a collector. He let me know how smart he was about guns. I really didn’t care about guns, so why was he telling me this? He is just one example of Trump Derangement Syndrome in my life. I thought the ACLU was supposed to deliver freedom to the oppressed. Not to be the oppressors. Because of all his talking, I never mentioned my friends, and their successes.

Build Back Better

So I support “Build Back Better”. Yet I have not heard much about BBB. So I decided to search Google. The first hit goes to the Joe Biden website. His campaign promise. I read what were a bunch of lies, at least in my world they were. Hrumph. What happened to infrastructure? I had heard some talk about solar panels and jobs, what about? According to Google BBB is a vast empty ocean. In my view manufacturing makes our lives better. We like nice things. Because of manufacturing we have the arts and sciences. I would think build back better would support manufacturing. Trump talked manufacturing during his campaign. Then he did something about it. He made jobs. Hello Joe.

Not that I watch a lot of news, however I saw Joe bashing Trump yesterday. Hello Joe, you are the President! You are in charge. You can do what you want. I suggest supporting jobs and manufacturing. You said you would do that during the campaign. I know change will not happen overnight, yet you could talk about your plans. How about a bridge across the Bering Sea? Or flying cars. Or even bigger fire stations for your supporters! I like to follow directions. Come on man, give me direction. I want to support something I can believe in.

Transgender men in women’s sports? I do not care about that. Some may, I don’t. Cancel the pipeline, no Jobs in that. They will just ship it by rail and make Warren Buffett richer. The price of gas will go up and effect everything. Sure I like electric cars. However they have to be affordable, the way to do that is not to make everything else more expensive. I just checked CNN and the very first word is TRUMP! Joe that is your network! Trump is not your president! You said you were going to be president to all Americans. Give me something to believe in before I believe something else. Cut it out with the fake news and do something real.

Build back, make our lives better Joe.

January 6th Revisited

When I was younger I remember the Gwangju Uprising in Korea. Rioters, who were called students fought in the streets against police. People would film the riots from tall buildings. They were then broadcast on American TV. I was impressed by the orderliness of the demonstrations. The police had Plexiglas shields helmets and batons. The students would use Molotov cocktails against the police. When they did the students would advance. Sometimes the police would use tear gas to push back the students. Then the police would gain ground. Most of the time it was just violence in the streets. Fists against batons. A raging mob pushing back and forth. That was the flashback in my mind when I saw the images from January 6th.

What struck me (pun intended) about the Gwangju Uprising was the violence was confined to the streets. Parked cars seemed immune to the violence. Plate glass shop windows were not boarded up. They did not need to be. Windows were not being broken. The contents in the shops were safe. Yes there was violence in the streets. From what I understand thousands died. Yet the violence was between the students and the police.

Back in the 1960’s this country had many riots. Nothing was safe, stores were burned. Cars were destroyed. Violence was random. I was very young then, those riots were disturbing. For some reason the random violence of that era returned in 2020. Violence designed to induce fear. Unlike the violence of the 1960’s history was also targeted. Statues were torn down. History was being denied. Our riots were unlike the Gwangju Uprising.

January 6th is yet to be defined by history. Of course people are trying to define it to their benefit. That is what the second impeachment was all about. My first thought was it will be something like Guy Fawkes Day. A failed insurrection. At least that is what the media wants us to believe. Yet there are significant differences. Guy wanted to blow up the system. Literally. His insurrection was carefully planned. It was also done in secret.

The Trump event on January 6th was quite the opposite. It was completely open. The weapons were limited to flag poles and bear spray. The purpose was to raise voices to influence due process, not to undo it. It was believed that there were legitimate concerns about the certification of the vote. Then things got out of control. The similarity to Guy Fawkes Day? The wrath of the mob was actually directed towards governmental oppressors. The innocents were left out. This was something completely different than any previous riot in this country. In another first, Trump’s name was all over it. The imagery was spectacular, and unprecedented.

So what are the ramifications from the 6th? Five trumps supporters died. Add them to the body count of Trump supporters. Yes the officer that died was a Trump supporter. He may or may not have been hit on the head with a fire extinguisher. Reportedly there is no mention of contusion in the autopsy. Some windows and benches were destroyed. They can be replaced. No historic statues or paintings were harmed. A bunch of police were hurt. Yet the real result, a lot of members of the Congress and Senate became scared. Very scared. History was being made, not destroyed.

So my view, the Gwangju Uprising was epic. Something that changed the world, for the better. The January 6th Trump event seems to me to be something similar, a combination of violence and respect. Could it be equally epic? Still way to early to tell. As I said before I think it is the end of the Trump era. Yet Trump lives, he is what people talk about. TDS is real, why I do not know. Actually my current thought is TDS is just used as simple justification warning for a new era of oppression. Our new masters are using technology to keep us down. Time will judge.

Trump Is Still Your President

A few people have mentioned the second impeachment. My initial reaction is that it is fake news. My first thought is you cannot remove Trump from office because he is not in office. My second thought is the supreme court is not involved. Some senator is impersonating the judge. In essence, a show trial.

However the inquires got me thinking. I checked the CNN website a few times. Always their was a picture of Trump, or his name in the very lead. Funny, I thought Joe Biden was in charge. Nope. As they say Trump was living rent free in their heads. Me I am waiting to hear more about “Build Back Better” I had thought Trump lost the election .

Let’s just say impeachment fails. That would indicate that they were unable to remove President Trump from office. So would that mean Trump is still your president? From what I read the vote will happen latter today. So when it comes right down to it, I expect nothing will happen. It is all fake news. Trump is not your president after all.

Currently I do not participate in politics. My commentary is somewhat brief. My opinion is we live in a fascist society, and I just want to get along. So I rarely express my views. The power of hate and rage is strong. I truly miss the times when discourse was not confrontational. I guess those times are not the norm. The those times were a brief, though wonderful aberration. Memories that I cherish.

I am not smart enough to know all there is to know about politics. Those that think they do, they frighten me.
