Donald Trump Is President—It’s Not His Fault Goddammit!

It is abundantly clear that Donald Trump is seriously suffering mental illness. It’s textbook. It’s certifiable.

That’s not his fault. Nature/nurture—shit happens. Also, it’s not his fault he got elected president of the United States of America. WE the people, as a self-absorbed and distracted throng own this complacent blunder collectively and wholly.

America isn’t great? Alrighty then, how the fuck did we end up with such a self-esteem starved kook running the country? Hmmm. Try this one on. Our States United past to present has been so bright relative to the majority of the world, we’s gotta wear shades. Most people spend more time and energy choosing PABA free sun lotion than they do concerning themselves about elected officials. Maybe the USA is so God damned great, the nation as a whole took all the nominees and this election for Foster Grant(ed). So being on permanent vacation from the rest of the world is great until it's not so great, eh.

This Neumanesque “what me worry” molasses mind-set has finally reached it’s dripping point. Potentially a very sticky mess and cleanup is ahead but here's a big league thank you anyway Donald.

Nothing is left but faith in our Constitution; the system of checks and balances that have endured a shit-ton of strident and farcical challenges over the past 241 years should prevail and right the syrup bottle. Short of Trump and his minions/puppet masters actually pulling off some fucked up flavor of coup d'état or causing Civil War II, we will one day reflect and view this skidmark on our democracy not so much as an embarrassing stain but as a absolute good thing.

Bull, donkey, sheep, or elephant; cinch a nutsack tight enough—expect a kick. I love it! Brave new world bitches!

This is an overdue wake up call for the sleepy citizenry. Time is nigh to:
--own and learn from this buffoonery
--log off Facebook for two hours
--demonstrate some civic responsibility
--demand and cultivate better qualified candidates

Maybe then will we continue to not be afraid and reap the rewards of a free melting pot nation.

Donald Trump as POTUS is one of the biggest and best disguised boo-boo kick in the balls blessings this country has been “given” in decades. So here’s to a most ironical coming correction that will make America great…all over again.

I guess you are a professional.

If you are, you should get access, before you enter the certifiable business.

A lot will depend on the body count, whether this winds up being just a skidmark, or something more profoundly harmful.

Perhaps, in a bad but not altogether apocalyptic scenario, we could wind up with a dynasty: Trump after Trump after Trump.

We got Trump simply because the electorate is pretty weak in the thinking department thanks to our mainly lousy schools. That's why he wanted DeVos as she will ruin the few good ones we have and we will have an even more brainless electorate.

And our schools are lousy because republicans made them that way, just like they hate government so they make the government "not work" and then blame it for not working.

Republicans are the most repugnant despicable malcontents on this planet. Every last one of them.

The electorate is weak?

Your candidate is what was weak.

There, a slight modification on your text.

The only problem Devos had is that the teacher's unions who have the Democrat Party bought and paid for don't like school choice.

Government schools suck in many areas. The same way they suck in this area.
If you moved my property about three miles west it would double in value simply because of the school district.

The reason is simple. The ACLU, that champion of the left, had made the schools uncontrollable.

And, of course the left would have you think that they are all boy scouts and the only reason people avoid the area is because of race.

So, it can't be fixed. The only solution at this point is to let people in the area have a choice.

Of course, this is when you get called racist.

Only problem with that is that blacks won't move here either if they can help it.

Guess they are racist too.

The schools in our county are among the best, why? Simple we read the manifests of those who want to be elected to the school board and vote for the smart ones
