Bringing back football

And other amazing feats that no one has ever accomplished before.

Green Acres re-runs won here at the Landfill. No one talked about the debates debacle. The GG made popcorn as he occasionally does and so I was wondering for a bit whether he intended to subject himself/us to what I thought [rightly, as it turned out] would be a hot mess. But no, we ate our popcorn in the back room listening to music on Satty-lite. There is a TV back there but we hardly ever use it. Actually we hardly ever watch TV at all unless you count Green Acres re-runs.

We didn’t watch and we have not talked about the debates debacle. I’m pretty sure we would disagree, probably loudly. I have read and listened to news stories off and on all day and watched enough clips on my phone to know that we made the right [tacit] decision not to watch. The GG took off to the yooperland today. I don’t know what news he has seen/heard and I don’t really want to know.

I’m sorry. I’ve been watching in horrified fascination ever since 2016. He belittles people less “fortunate” than he, he name-calls anyone who dares to disagree with him, he grossly overstates his supposed accomplishments. Lies? Yes, he does lie. But in my opinion it’s more like he doesn’t understand whatever subject he’s addressing well enough to make coherent statements about it. I don’t think enough of us are calling it what it is and I don’t think it’s actually dementia. I just think he isn’t all that intelligent to start with but has been promoted his entire life with doting parents covering up his flaws. Sociopath? I dunno. Grifter? Yes.

I know I am not writing coherently about this. How can anyone? The whole thing makes my silly little pea-brain explode. But I will say from the standpoint of a “suburban housewife” (and I am both but also neither) the Orange Baboon’s performance at the debates debacle does not in any way sway my vote from Biden/Harris. I will be filling out and dropping off my ballot this weekend.

Oh yeah, youz guyz who rant and rail against the “antifa”, “socialism”, and “communism” can go jump in the canal. Define those words and tell me how a crazy Orange Baboon/Bad Orange Man is the right person to save us from those “evils”. BTW “antifa” stands for “anti-fascist”. Methinks a few of our fathers were anti-fascists and went to war to put some notorious fascists down. (Although to be honest, my dad kinda went to war because his dad told him to but that’s a whole ‘nother story and he served in an exemplary manner.) As much as you say you are afraid of “socialism” or “communism”, I AM AFRAID OF FASCISM. The Orange Baboon’s unhinged rants and rage tweets are giving groups already tending toward fascism license to speak out with what I believe are dangerous words.

As for bringing back football? Bringing back football is a presidential accomplishment? Really? I would note that I saw several articles fly by today about NFL(?) football players testing positive for COVID. Yeah, let’s bring back team contact sports. I am LOVING grocery store pickup/delivery but one of these days I would like to go to my fave restaurants again and have my kids over for dinner. Trump gets tested constantly and doesn’t give a f*ck about us peons.

    Yeah, didn’t we fight a couple of wars over our anti-fascist position? And socialism is a BAD word unless it means medicare, schools, fire departments, police, etc. Any program that uses government money for the common good is socialism, right? I’m shaking my head over bringing back football. It’s only a matter of time. I do agree with your political rant, but you probably knew that already. 🙂
