I adore Michelle Obama, but sadly she has forgiven the unforgivable and embraced the truly deplorable. Reportedly over the past eight years, George W. Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama have become increasingly close. At public events, they often sit next to each other laughing and often holding hands. In a recent ceremony she even hugged him. Surely she is aware that hundreds of young African Americans are dead because of Bush as well as thousands of other servicemen and women who fought and died in his deceitful war.  Because of Bush, thousands of other Americans are blind, crippled, mentally disturbed. Because of Bush hundreds of thousands of innocent overseas victims are dead, maimed or homeless. Because of Bush's lies ISIS was born and continues to wreak havoc. The man is a mass murderer, a war criminal, an amoral unrepentant monster who does not deserve the social acceptance of Michelle Obama or any person and should be in prison along with Cheney and all the others who caused so much death and destruction to America.


Rafael Cruz is a detestable person. He's ugly, creepy, slimy, reptilian, and just plain unappealing in every possible way. But I personally find it hard to believe that he just endorsed Donald Trump. I'm certain his anger and hatred are so deep that nothing could have brought him around to agreeing to vote for Trump. Friends assure me that Cruz has done it to protect his own political career. I don't buy that. Other Republicans have come out against Trump without seeming to fear consequences from creeps like Reince Priebus and his cadre of traitors. My conspiracy theory of one is that he fakes allegiance until the last week before the election then announces to the media that he can no longer in good conscience support a person so vile, bigoted, misogynistic, xenophobic and stupid as Trump. Thus causing Trump some damaging last-minute publicity and having a satisfactory revenge for all the crap Trump has tossed his way. Wouldn't Trump see right through this ruse? With his ego, are you kidding?

I think most car ads are utterly pretentious, but the new Fiat spot is particularly stupid. We see a young couple driving along a mountain highway in their Fiat, obviously fascinated by an eagle who is following them. They keep turning to admire the soaring bird above them, taking a chance of swerving off the nearby incline to their deaths. When this rapacious bird lands on their car they are delighted with the romanticism of what would throw ordinary people into panic at being the roost for a  bird of prey with deadly talons. Equating driving a sports car to being free as a bird is dopey, but no dopier than all the other auto ads that try to suggest that the car you drive somehow makes you a superior human being and endows you will all kinds of admirable qualities. Or is that only true for the attractive drivers exclusively shown in these commercials?

One of the many unfair attacks that the media level at Hillary is that she was for the Iraq War. Yes, and that's unfortunate. But millions of trusting people were taken in by the lies of Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, and Powell, including Trump, though he denies it. Much of America was convinced that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction because Bush was so eager to go to war that he gathered a group of equally immoral conspirators and wove a conceivable lie. Sadly not one of those war criminals has been tried or imprisoned, and the only person who seems to be paying for their crimes is Hillary Clinton for buying their evil and tragically believable bullshit.

Sorry, all you PC people—even Democrats—who think Hillary was out of line with her "basket of deplorables" comment. The only thing that was wrong was it far larger than a basket. Trump followers comprise a multitude of deplorables, a myriads of losers, an army of bitter white bigots who have failed at life and need a scapegoat to be responsible for all their missteps and stupidities. They are a whining horde of aging, mostly overweight, lowbrow misfits who have found their only possible messiah in a chubby clown with cotton candy hair who, to their delight, is just as much a misanthropist as they are. The reason they have stayed so true is that, being deplorable, they do not have enough intelligence to recognize their ignorance or enough character to change their set-in-cement minds. These are the people
that deserve Trump's question, "What have you got to lose?" not the African-Americans he so hopelessly tried to woo. His deplorables have nothing to lose with him as president. Their hope is that he will, as even they suspect, make life unbearable for all the people they envy or hate, everyone who has more than they do, is smarter than they are, has achieved the kind of recognition they will never know. Of course they will overlook the fact that he probably isn't as rich as he says, has frequently gone bankrupt, has stiffed so many people, has had a scam university, lies, cheats, and is easily offended by the merest slight and ready to attack. This only means one thing: that's he's deplorable just like them.

This week a massive sinkhole opened up in Florida near Tampa and was soon filled with 200 million gallons of radioactive waste water from the storage pond of a  phosphate supply company called Mosaic. Naturally a representative from Mosaic said there is absolutely no risk to Florida's drinking water. Can we believe that after the Flint, Michigan lies? This massive sinkhole, I repeat, had 200 million gallons of contaminated wastewater from a fertilizer plan leak into one of the state's main underground resources of drinking water. I suggest you take one gallon of water and pour it on the sidewalk. How easy would be it get rid of 200 million gallons of that same volume?  Sorry to be an alarmist, but I would check with your water supplier and avoid drinking Florida tap water until I knew more. I don't know whether you know it, but some companies actually lie.

Trump for some reason has lots of supporters and surrogates who will accept any lie, any failing, any evidence that their candidate is an overweight bag of racist arrogance. But the few, the very few, supporters who might be moved by reason must have been surprised by Trump's visit to Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint, Michigan. When he started his usual attack on Hillary Clinton, the church pastor, Rev. Faith Green Timmons, walked up to him and said, "Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done for Flint, not give a political speech." And an amazing thing happened: Trump caved. He seemed embarrassed, abashed, almost ashamed for being caught being an asshole.. He quickly finished his speech and left. Later in true bully style he told everyone that Rev Timmons was "a nervous mess" a complete lie to cover his being so publicly scolded. He added to this another ridiculous lie by saying that the small audience said, "Let him talk." which not one of them said. Sadly what happened in Flint will not be obvious to the Trumpistas, but the rest of us could easily see that this coward can be brought down by a  public act of disapproval.
