The Sh*tocracy and Donald Trump

The latest paroxysms of puerile petulance.

Rick Hasen, a professor of law at the University of California, Irvine, said Mr. Cohen’s admission could amount to an “impeachable offense,” particularly if Democrats retake the majority in the House this fall.

The Wall Street Journal, “Cohen Says President Told Him to Pay Women,” August 22, 2018

Mr. Cohen has virtually guaranteed that Democrats will not “retake the majority in the House this fall,” or the Senate either. Setting aside for a moment the legally problematic nature of making out a case for President Trump’s impeachment, is his base more or less likely to show up to the polls if the media and Trump’s legions of enemies are bandying the “I” word? The above quote, and similar quotes from other sources, are fire-em-up locker room fodder, right up there with Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” comment.

The media and political class vastly overestimate their importance to most Americans. On a stellar night a network newscast is lucky to hit 10 million viewers, or about 3 percent of the American population. Fox, the leading cable news network, gets a little over 2 million viewers, or less than 1 percent. The nation’s leading newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, has a daily average circulation of just over 1 million, or less than one-half of one percent.

Withdrawal of peoples Consent for being lied to and bullshitted, spit on, bust mostly ignored like a doormat unless it is to paint us as something lower than a snake belly in a wagon rut gets really fucking old after awhile.
That withdrawal of Consent is going to turn into hot lead and copper jackets if these idiots don’t cut the crap.
And I’m only one out of a hundred million, did you read that? 100,000,000 million people who got a craw full of this chicken shit holier than thou attitude.
Just keep it up, you’ll get hole-e-er than you ever imagined.
Like 5.56 and 7.62 mm diameter holes. Lots of holes.
It’s what you get when you have gone to far with dirt people.
We stop being tolerant and listening to our voices of prudence.
We become very manifest in our defense.
Just saying…

No, none, nada politician is the ordinary American’s friend. In fact they are the enemy no matter how much they try to beguile you. Having said that, well maybe the Honorable Senator from Arizona will have an euphony in the near future and be converted to a benign friend. Whether Democrat, Republican, Independent or Socialist they are all members in the same club and they consider ALL outsiders, including the Lobbyists who fatten their coffers are to be looked upon as a dirty, unwashed bunch of diseased warts. Never forget that and never forget it takes a hard heart to pull the trigger on any creature in your sights, but when it becomes you or them I know I’ll make the correct decision.
