Malice And Spite Make Not Everything Nice

executive crime by president
Source: DailyKos; see link below

You’d think that a criminal indictment of a presidential candidates campaign worker would be enough to fulfil the greed-needs of mongers, i.e. stupid white people that are unable to cope with the harvest they’ve sewn. No. Seriously. Harvest. Like a harvest of wheat totally and completely compromised by excessive¬†ergot exposure. Are republicans finally so high (ergot poisoning) that even they can’t tell the difference between stupid and more stupid? But I digress.

I’m worstwriting, of course, about my beloved #americant and its current iteration of humanity’s grandest experiment. Btw, let’s worst-look at the word indictment:

Indictment: An indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a crime.

Unlike being arrested, where a policeman takes you in after you’ve committed a crime, i.e. given him/her reason to take you in, an indictment is like a letter from a dire foe that seals the deal of your destined failed relationship with not only fear but reality for the $hit you’ve done and tried to sweep under the rug. Of course, is any of this a surprise? Just check out the chart above, stolen from DailyKos. The coolest thing about the chart? Check out Barry-0’s record of trouble with the law. Is that cool or what? Do you miss him, too? Oh wait. If you’re #americant and dependent on the greed-mongering you live in, I guess you don’t like Barry-O. But on that issue, I digress once more.

And so. What are we (yes, I’m still an #americant, too) really dealing with in these times of free-to-be-stupid? Well, according to the newz–that I’ve been avoiding for the last two weeks–the proverbial $hit may be hitting the fan for president stupid (#Trump). Would you believe his chief of staff has publicly admitted to a new level of stupidity? The Civil War, according to mister chief of staff, was caused by an inability to compromise. Whaaaa! I can’t believe what I’m reading. Does this person know nothing about the years of abolition prior to the Civil War? Oh wait. We’re in the land of president stupid and his dumba$$ minions–not unlike the morons that voted for him thinking that he’s gonna drain the swamp.

To add oil to the stinky flame of stupid, the US congress, filled with morons that more directly represent the morons of land of the free-to-be-stupid, have reversed the small attempt under the Barry-O administration to put some curbs on banks thereby letting cheated consumers sue them. That’s right, dumba$$es. If your bank screws you, if equifax screws you, if insurance screws you… you now have no recourse other than to submit your complaint to a group of men who have been hand picked by the entity you’re suing–who will then arbitrate your complaint.

Way to go #americant.

Rant on.

Anti Relaxation, Boredom And Too Much Bat$hittery In The Homeland. But The Beach Is Still Grand.

Pics above a welcome change of scenery from all those months in #eurowasteland. Assateague Island galore, including a lovely but decaying flush mechanism from a beach outhouse that I feel compelled to include. I wonder sometimes if flush mechanisms have lost their value in these days of greed mongering, sex abuse by people who are sexually repressed and politics that always… always leave the rich their unearned, stolen wealth. But before I get too far off subject.

Last Homeland visit (to the land of free to be stupid) for 2017. Spent first week walking around mid-Atlantic cities and eating grand #americant breakfasts. Hotel beds were excellent. Weather has been unbelievably gorgeous–except for one storm. Other than a ridiculous dinning experience at a pseudo-Spanish restaurant in Baltimore–where we literally gave back our plates because the food was so bad–and the waiter told us that we had to practice eating locally in order to appreciate his kitchen–things have been a-ok. Of course, usually when I visit the Homeland–gosh, I just love writing/saying that dystopian name #americant has given itself because it/we made so many bad choices post 9/11–I try to avoid the newz. I don’t avoid it because it don’t agree with it. That’s a given in my worst-book. No. I avoid it because, well, I get better newz about the homeland when I’m abroad. The filters, including the willingly ignorant and inept minds that serve as nets, colanders, sling-shots for the propaganda (yes, that’s what it was called before “fake”) are simply too many to combat. One is bombarded here with so much bullshit from all walks of life that it’s no wonder things are the way they are. Or am I preaching to the choir, dear worst-reader? Am I just now realising this because of all my years abroad–or despite those years? Nomatter. This morning a fairly important confidant slash worker-bee of #americant’s favourite President Stupid was indicted. The hustle and bustle about this newest #americant political scandal means that flatscreens in all walks of life are blaring the newz. Even I, the grand wizard of worst-writtery, can’t avoid it all, dear worst-reader. And so. Here we/you go again with scandal galore. Which brings me to the following worst-conclusions:

  • Hillary did no wrong
  • Barry-O didn’t have one scandal (thanks to Hillary)
  • Dip$hit Dubya left #americant with a scandal it will never get out of
  • Who is #americant’s daddy, bitch! That’s right. You elected #Trump.

Good luck suckers.

Japanese Deer On Assateague Island Looks Like Bambi And Costs An Andrew Jackson To See

According to our friendly neighbourhood park ranger, this is not Bambi (vid above). I mean, we thought we were walking next to Bambi. She’s got spots on her back n’all. But according to Ranger Billy-Bob-Junior she ain’t even a “deer”. She’s an elk. Of course, I don’t really care. I was so pissed that we had to–in the land of free to be stupid–pay $20 dollars to enter a national park so that we could go for a walk. The good news is the ticket we bought works in the northern park of the park, too, which we plan on visiting before we end this lovely misconstrued #americant visit. Considering what #americant pays for wars, for stupid white people doing the easy wrong instead of the difficult right, etc., etc., to charge $20 for something that should be paid for by tax dollars is really, really f’d up. But what the hell am I saying? This is a country that has no idear why/how/who it pays taxes to/for/what. Need I worst-remind: The land of free to be stupid–where money is for maintaining the poor, artificially propping up inheritors of century old wealth and letting the inept middle classes think they too can someday be part of it all.

Oh. Before I forget. The pine trees on Assateague Island have some kind of bug eating them from the inside-out (see pic below). This has devastated the forest there. We stopped one journeyman, an elderly Dame, and inquired about the devastation. Her faced turned sad as she explained the Southern Pine Beetle to us. To prevent a tangent into her life story we weren’t ready to listen to, I interrupted her and blurted out the following question:

Worstwriter: Is this a climate change thing?

Without getting into any reality that is climate change, here is the crux of her response:

Nice Old Dame On A Walk: Well, if you’re the type… and I am one… I think you can say that.

Indeed, #americant. If you’re the type… you too can have… a land of free to be stupid. Also, if you’re the type, you too can believe in virgin births, i.e. books written during the bronze age.

Lone dying/dead pine tree. So sad.
Good luck suckers.

Priceless Statue Fascist Glory

 

Homeland bound. Homeland waning. Homeland unwanted visit–but also not a voluntary one. Although this was/is my normal off-season time of travel to the Homeland, I thought it better that I let it go this year and jaunt over the Atlantic early next year instead. Reason for change of travel-mind? Yea, could have something to do with family. Family? And so. Now I’m wondering if the word family has taken on the same superficiality as “hero”. Oh. The thoughts churned while traveling home. Nomatter. There are indeed more impending things to worstwrite about.

Took a tour of the Virginia state capital yesterday and made a massive (personal) discovery. While an elderly southern bell provided us with all the obligatory knowledge-bits about where we were and what we were looking at, I found myself facing, according to our tour guide, “the most priceless statue in the United States”. As the southern bell detailed George Washington’s experience of having a plaster caste of his face being made by the French sculpture Jean Antoinne Houdon, my third eye got caught on… the thing Washington was leaning on. At first I let my thoughts pass and even joined the group of geriatric tourists in another chamber so as not to miss any knowledge bits. But the statue of GW was in the rotunda and with each chamber that was presented to us, I had to pass this curiosity. I think there were four chambers all-together but after the second one I skipped the group and remained in the rotunda. I couldn’t take my eyes off the object that GW was leaning on. When an employee of the building passed by me I stopped him and asked what the object was. The man searched his mind but couldn’t come up with the name of what it’s called. Then he explained–in a normal, non-southern voice:

Oh that. You know. I can’t remember the name of it. But it’s when you take a stick and break it in half. Then you take the two halves, put them together and break them again. You then take the four quarters, put them together, break them again. Eventually, sir, you can no longer break them.

And the object behind that, I asked him.

Oh. That. That’s a plow. (See last pic above.)

It was a moment I will take a long time to forget, dear worst-reader. In fact. Put another way: Holy shit. George Fcuking Washington is a Fascist! How do I know? Well. He is resting his left arm on a Fasces, i.e. the international symbol of Fascism. Or. Put another way. Even though this statue was sculpted in the late 18th century, long before what I consider to be the antithesis of fascism (and the reason for fascism), i.e. communism, GW is leaning on an object that symbolizes terror of another kind. Go figure, eh. Now. With that in worst-mind, allow me to traverse this brain flatulent: Irrespective of #Trump and his dipshit claim after Charlottesville that has lead to Antifa getting back in the newz, let’s see if this statue can be removed, too. Yea. On the other hand, as far as worst-writer is concerned, get rid of all symbols of hate, greed and war mongering, etc.
