I thought spring was here to stay. Afternoon temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Dogwood blooming, cherry tree blooming, forsythia has bloomed and left, everything else is on the verge around the hillside. Across the land, idiots are in full bloom too but you knew that just by watching whatever amount of news you can bear.
When I got up this past Saturday morning it was snowing. Snow on a blooming dogwood is something I have not seen. I quickly checked the headlines to see if almost President Al Gore was holding a global warming conference anywhere nearby in what was once coal country. Blizzards follow him around. Divine intervention I am thinking. He was not here, but he was somewhere and if it is snowing after I already mowed the lawn three times it is his fault.
Friends have hinted to me that my thinking has tilted too much to the conservative side. In an attempt to balance out my life, I buried some bleeding hearts up in the back yard. Maybe planted is a better choice of words.
The President added Hiroshima to his apology tour. America has really screwed up the world. It must be depressing leading a nation that you despise.
What do you make of the Panama papers? Shall we start a pool for which Republican presidential candidate is going to be discovered inside those papers right in the nick of October? In politics there are no coincidences. There is already Clinton connections mentioned, but nothing to see here according to a lack of media interest.
Guccifer the Romanian hacker is in America. Turns out he hacked Sidney Blumenthal’s emails including exchanges between Hill and Sid. And the FBI is interested. We hear a lot about the contested convention predicted for the Republicans. Do not be surprised when the Democratic convention is a nominating convention for Joe Biden or John Kerry or another woman.
The delegate business is looking a little shady these days – on both sides. It is looking more like the votes cast in the primary elections do not mean a hill of beans. Writing your own rules to keep the power within the club has always been the case. It has just taken Donald Trump to expose it to the average American voter who had not a clue. The party cartels are going to pick the candidates to shove down the throats of Americans and they do not care if we come out and vote or not. Just as they do not care about who becomes President. Because no matter whom it ends up being, as long as it is a card carrying member of the club the games continue as usual. It is looking more like racketeering than government. I believe the hatred for Trump comes from the knowledge that he knows who paid who to do what for whom over the years and they know he knows.
They seem to think that it will always be as it is. It will not. At some point majority America, those who actually believe in America, will stand up.
How about slick Willie. He spoke the truth to the Black Lives Matter group. It probably caused Hillary to have an extra shot or two of bourbon. Did you ever notice how happy and natural she appears in those pictures of her holding a shot of whiskey up and smiling at it like it is her best friend. I am guessing she does not drink Gentleman Jack single blend Tennessee sour mash. But you never can tell.
I love these groups of protestors showing up at Trump rallies. These people, some well-heeled and educated, some paid protestors and some union thugs, and some stupid Bernie’s kids are first to call Trump Hitler or a fascist. Just shows their level of ignorance. Fascists demand that there be no other opposing view and it was Hitler’s brown shirts that used the tactic of disrupting rallies of political opponents.
I saw where the President and Vice President were speaking about how ready this country is for a woman President. Maybe that is why the President pre-pardoned Mrs. Clinton by publicly declaring her innocence. But he and crazy Uncle Joe may have had in mind Mrs. Obama or Pocahontas Warren.
I think maybe I need to go plant some more bleeding hearts.
