A Dead-End Street

Falling through the universe at the speed of life

By David Glenn Cox

It boggles the mind, and the only word that fits is insanity. Unfortunately, in our day and time, the word is chronically overused. Rarely inaccurately, but still overused just the same. Are the Republicans having a competition to see who can be the crazy, to out crazy all the other crazies? And they’re trying to keep it a secret from the general public? Every day I read the news and think, “How does this shit happen?”

It’s voluntary and self-inflicted. They get up out of bed in the morning to do this stuff all by themselves. Ted Cruz (secret Batman wanna be) issues a tweet mocking Republicans who grovel at the feet of Donald Twump. No one told him to do it. No staffer burst into the office saying, “Boss, you need send this tweet, you’ll look cool.” They didn’t kick the idea around the table, brainstorming before just going with it. It is as if every day is disconnected from the day before. So, whatever you said yesterday, really doesn’t matter today.

The other day, a Ukrainian drone spotted a new Russian pontoon bridge over the river, so they blew it up. Right on schedule, the Russian armor showed up ready to cross the bridge. It was soon a five o’clock traffic jam as “Duh, we can’t get over bridge, what we do now?” While they were having their big pow wow, more Ukrainian drones showed up and began taking out the armor like shooting  pigeons off a wire. Nowhere to go, nowhere to run, stuck at the end of a dead-end street. An entire Russian battalion’s armor…gone in twenty minutes, due to incompetence.

Rand Paul is the vote holding up $40 billion in aid to Ukraine. He wants an inspector appointed to watch where all the money goes. I mention this just by the by, but didn’t Donald Twump also withhold aid to Ukraine because he wanted something in return? Same song, second verse? Or is it just more insanity? “Today, I stand four square behind Ukraine.” Tomorrow, “Hold your horses, not so fast!” One Senator holding up legislation to try and get something that he desperately wants. And what he wants is publicity and headlines, and if people die or suffer from the hold up. Well then so be it, Washington’s a tough town.

Elise Stefanik, that little girl they said would never amount to nothing no how. Proves her critics correct by tweeting out QAnon fantasies about “Pedo Grifters.” And from the sounds of it, they are developing their own simple crude form of language and can soon be expected to move underground and call themselves Morlock Republicans. Ms. Stefanik replaced Liz Cheney as the number three house Republican, after Cheney dared to be honest and was promptly sacked and run out of the Party. This is how you know that they are headed for the rocks.

Whenever they replace someone, they can’t control with someone they can, they only silence the squeaking wheel, without fixing it. Sure, what’s wrong with that? The number three house Republican is tweeting out conspiracy theories about an international ring of child sex peddlers operating clandestinely as the Democratic Party.  It’s completely bizarre and without equal. A bonafide cult and I wonder what’s holding up that God damn comet? Let’s get these folks loaded and on their way. Mustn’t keep Jesus waiting!

There is a sure enough baby formula shortage, largely because there are only three suppliers. The largest of the three, had the largest recall in their history. They had to shut down the plant and scrub everything twice causing supply disruptions. Because once they ran short, we all remember the buggies full of toilet paper. Obviously, this is all Joe Biden’s fault. As Stefanik tweets,

“The White House, House Dems, & usual pedo grifters are so out of touch with the American people that rather than present ANY PLAN or urgency to address the nationwide baby formula crisis, they double down on sending pallets of formula to the southern border. Joe Biden has NO PLAN”

This number three house Republican, this isn’t Margie Tator Greene or locker room attendant Jordan. These are their leaders! A crazy woman is issuing detached lunatic tweets only believed by the cultists and the crazy people. Suddenly, Joe Biden has no plan and wasn’t watching the infant formula market close enough. The Party of Capitalism uber allis and nonintervention in the free market suddenly asks, “Aren’t you going to do something? Don’t you have a plan?”

But the government bought pallets of baby formula just like they always do. And sent them to border stations as required by law, just like they always do. Baby formula, soap, toilet paper, tampons all of life’s luxuries. Republicans are incensed that Joe would personally pick up all the baby formula and deliver it to the border. The Pro-life Republican answer to the baby food shortage is to starve the babies at the border. Fuck em, let them eat nothing! Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps; you lazy dumb baby! The Republicans are actually angry that they’re feeding immigrant babies at the border.

You can picture those guys on the Titanic, can’t you? The lifeboat policy is first come first served. “Outta my way lady and your brats too!”

Clarence Thomas in a moment self-reflection laments that the public no longer respects the Subprime court, the way it did when Ruth Bader Ginsburg was there. Obviously, that’s because she’s gone and you’re still there ya big dumb twit! You lament the loss of respect, while your wife was involved in trying to overthrow the lawful government. Your wife is knee deep in a criminal conspiracy, but we’re to blindly accept that you’re just an innocent bystander, who knew nothing about it. His protests amount to – “What? What’s everybody looking at? Why is everyone looking at me for?”

East West, high low, anyway the wind blows. Following the tangerine tracks of lunacy, they are now lost in the howling woods of madness. Nothing is important, except headlines and nothing to get hung about. Reality is fluid you can be in favor of something despite voting against it. You can be for it today and against it tomorrow. They can deny all reality that interferes with their preconceived notions, stereotypes, and superstitions.

The State of Alabama recently passed laws against doctors treating minors with certain drugs involved with transgenderism. Because the Alabama state government knows more than the doctors do. It got a lot of headlines, so it was a good law.

Nowhere to go, nowhere to run, stuck at the end of a dead-end street.

  1. This is a very refreshing epistle. I wonder about these thing everyday. I think I will probably be dead before I understand. Thank you for letting me see I’m not alone.
