What We Could Have

Falling through the universe at the speed of life

Tomorrow doesn’t really exist. It is an imaginary place we create in our minds and then plan to build. On the night of April 15, the liner Hms. Titanic struck an iceberg and sank killing fifteen hundred. That afternoon they had plans and futures, but fate intervened. This future was not as it appeared. The assassination of Archduke Ferdinand altered the future of the world. The rise of the submarine the airplane and the machine gun altered the world giving a new view of lethality. They were in new territory know one knows for sure what will happen next.

 The madness of King George, Nero, Caligula and Mussolini. If only, he would appoint his horse proconsul! The mad king has emptied the cells of the Bastille for those able to exercise contriteness in the form of a check. We are at one of those moments, the Constitutional Crisis is upon us. The mad king is drawing up naughty and nice lists of the employed and the unemployed. Loyalty Uber ailes.

Tomorrow doesn’t exist we have to make it exist. If this were a (superhero de jure) Man movie our hero just found his superpowers. If this isn’t the eleventh hour its at least ten after and as dark as the future might appear is that appearance because we have no faith in ourselves? The enemy is fully exposed and at the full length of his tether. Getting intelligence briefings only from those who agree with you sounds like a recipe for disaster.

In 1932, it was a disaster, but we built a different future. We sit on the precipice of destruction. Our entire system of government is in jeopardy. The Senate of the United States voted to release a guilty man and, in the processes, cut their own nuts off. The Executive Branch and members of the Senate have just thrown the World Series just to keep their own money coming. Just how much is enough for you?

Is that a right of life when the young children of this country are being reared into a sphere which is more owned by 12 men than it is by 120,000,000 people?” – Huey Long

The only way we’re going to get rid of shoe-less Joe Cheeto is by voting. Voting in unheard of and massive numbers. The government of the United States is now clearly operating lawlessly. All Hail El Presidente (Bang!) (Bang!) We have reached Banana Republic status. All those with tokens for the Deluxe Fascist Tour remain on this coach. This is only the first act. They’re just getting warmed up. Roll up! Roll up! Roll up, see the show! The mad king visits India, he goes anywhere he can draw a crowd, smile and wave. Just don’t mention Pakistan “Doah,” he mentioned Pakistan. What ever happened to his little Korean buddy?

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn,

We don’t have to set ambushes we just need to vote in record numbers, or next time you might have to set ambushes. The future is ours, the same disaster which brought the Cheeto in will carry him back out

We have a realistic chance of a Blue Sweep but that depends on you and me. Don’t go to the polls alone take a friend. Mail in your mail in ballot. This is the most important presidential election since 1860 and the results will determine what kind of country your children will live in

For forty years we have endured under this Republican Apothecary. Potions and notions that always add up to less and usually don’t add up at all. Voodoo economics daddy Bush called it and he would know the devil was his partner. Nothing out there a good tax cut wouldn’t cure!

But you and I can change that, It’s April 15th for the Republican Party and I spy an iceberg. It’s just that simple. In crisis there is opportunity and all we need do is our part. We can take back this country and we can love our freedoms and we can earn them.
