Donald Trump, that putrid pile of festering fecal matter, says America is “rounding the corner” on Covid19. What he fails to mention is that that “corner” is located at the intersection of Democracy & Doom!
According to the Centers for Disease Control (the CDC):
— On Friday, October 30, 2020, One Hundred Thousand (100,000) new Covid19 cases were diagnosed in the U.S. — 25,000 more than in any previous 24-hour period!
— In the 14-day period ending on Friday, October 30, 2020, One Million (1,000,000) Americans were newly diagnosed with Covid19.
— It took America 10 months to record Eight Million Covid19 cases, BUT only 14 days to record an additional One Million cases!
In other words, what had been a contagion rate of 750,000 new American Covid19 cases per month, has suddenly grown to One Million new American cases in just 14 days — less than half of one month!
At that rate, by New Year’s Eve, Covid19 will have infected an additional Four Million Americans, bringing the number of Americans diagnosed with Covid19 to a staggering 13 Million.
When the total number of Americans diagnosed with Covid19 was only (only?) nine million, the death count was nearly 250,000, or approximately 25,000 deaths per One million cases. If that ratio persists, by the first day of the coming new year, 325,000 Americans will have been killed by the commingling of Covid19 and Donald J. Trump’s criminal negligence and incompetence!
But wait…there’s more:
According to the dictionary, the word paranoia means “unjustifiable fear”. That being the case, one must conclude that those, like myself, who fear for the future health and safety of America and her citizens, are not paranoid, because there is nothing, absolutely nothing UNjustified about that fear!
In the past six months, sales of guns and ammunition have skyrocketed! American homes now contain more guns than pets, and the only thing growing faster than the sale of guns in this country is the girth and rabid hatred of Trump’s Legion of Lunatic Lemmings.
If you are aware of the Biden/Harris Campaign bus that was attacked in Texas Saturday (10/31/2020) by a caravan of heavily-armed Trumpists…if you read that the number of gun-toting Trumpists involved in that attack greatly outnumbered the combined forces of local law enforcement personnel…if you recall the recent confirmed conspiracy to kidnap and murder the Democratic Governor of the state of Michigan, in retaliation for her efforts to slow the spread of a deadly plague – if these facts are not news to you, and yet you are not convinced that what awaits us on the evening of November 3rd (and in the days and weeks to follow) is anything less than coast-to-coast chaos and bloodshed, then you, dear reader, are dangerously naive.
I insist that it is not paranoia that prompts me to suggest that when Election 2020 is over and the winners have been announced, the first nation-wide noise you will hear will be the sound of hundreds of thousands of guns being locked and loaded by hundreds of thousands of knuckle-dragging Trump worshippers. What they lack in education and decency they more than compensate for with weapons of mass murder, and a passionate desire to use them!
The old adage “Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst” should now be Thing Number One on your To Do List. Check your current supplies of food, medicine, vitamins, First Aid provisions, dog and cat food, kitty litter, diapers, coffee, tea, Snickers bars, and yes, toilet paper. If you have less than several weeks’ worth of any of those items, get to the store and stock up, now! Fill your fridge and pantry. Don’t forget batteries, flashlights, and anything else you might need in the immediate future.
If you have not yet cast your Ballot, and you plan to do so on Election Day, in person at a local Polling Place, get to that Polling Place as early this coming Tuesday morning as possible. Vote and then go home, and stay home because by late afternoon Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the streets of America will be swarming with heavily-armed Trumpists who will want nothing more than to fire at will (or at Bruce, or Ahmed, or Laticcia, or Sanjay). Itchy trigger fingers are not known for their discernment and anyone who is not ‘them’ will be a perfectly acceptable target. By word, deed, gesture and implication, Donald Trump has declared it to be Open Season on his enemies, and his long list of enemies includes us.
And just who is ‘us’? (forgive my syntax slaying. Desperate times call for desperate grammar.) To help you figure out if you could be a target, I’ve compiled a list of characteristics, traits, and tendencies that might earn you a spot on the Trump Enemy List.
You Might Be A Target Of Trump’s Army of Asshat Assassins If:
- your Family Tree has more than one branch
- you have all your teeth
- you can effortlessly pronounce words of more than two syllables
- your IQ is at least 20 points higher than your body temperature
- you own more books than guns
- you love someone whose personal plumbing resembles your own
- you wear a Mask whenever you are in public
- you do not consider “visible butt crack” to be a fashion statement
- you have a natural, year-round tan
- English is only one of the languages you speak
- you do not celebrate Christmas
- your favorite Family Night movie is not “Deliverance”
- you do not think of Pork Rinds as Health Food
- you do not have at least one old car sitting on blocks in your front yard
- you do not worship Donald John Trump
Take care, all…stay safe…and believe, as I do, that the Pendulum of Life swings back and forth, and, some day soon, sanity, decency, and compassion will rule.
