Today’s old fart top news story is about the impending presidential race in the US, which appears to be at the brink of civil war. Now why in the world anyone would want to run to become the president of the United States eludes me, because it’s an absolutely lose-lose occupation. You try to please these people, and by doing so you piss off them. Every corporate power in the world wants to be your best buddy, and every nation in the world’s gunning for you. Terrorists hunt you like big game, religions suspect you’re Satan, and you become the poster person for divisionalists.
Media Hounds You Like Rabid Chihuahuas
You’re on-call 24/7 365, your entire family’s put at risk, your reputation gets drug through the mud, and the media hounds you like rabid chihuahuas. Talk about a thankless bloody job! Especially as the nation slips ever closer to a civil war, once again horribly divided by politics. Will Donald Trump win again? Well, I ain’t sure because a whole lot has transpired since his election, with the biggest change being the public’s trust of media, which has reached all time lows.
Now I’m pretty sure that Don and I knew each other in California many, many years ago, and if I’m right, I might even still have a watch somewhere around here that he gave me. Now as I recall, he had few real close friends and we argued quite a bit, but as friends do, never in a hateful way. And if my failing memory serves me, he led a very private personal life. I found him to be a very intelligent, socially savvy, cultured and superbly groomed dashing young man who was very business oriented, even then. And, I’ll be damned if he ain’t still dashing, only now it’s from Washington to Prague then onto China. I went on to become King of the idiots, and he went on to become King of the world.
Now I know that there’s folks who hate him, and those who love him, but I pity the place that Don’s in right now. His biggest enemy has become the same media that he was once a darling of. Of course that was back when they thought he was just an overgrown rich kid who was always good for a laugh. And he became a full blown a journalistic jester when announced that he’d run for president. However, the very moment that he said he’d shred NAFTA, everything changed. He went from corporate clown to public enemy number one in a heck of hurry, and suddenly those mocking him were publicly attacking him. Fortunately, he had himself one hell of a good woman and a patriotic nation at his side.
Whoever Wins The Next US Election Sure Has Their Work Cut Out For Them
Whoever wins the next US election sure enough has their work cut out for them. All across the U.S. people are fighting with or for something, against anything and everything, and mostly for next to nothing. Streets are lined with the desperate, and cities are falling into decay. The entire nation’s brutally under attack by people pitting people against each other, who are easy pickens, likely because they’ve have turned away from spiritual sanctuaries where love and unity are spoken of. The result is a nation that’s horribly divided; one that prefers to form social gangs who label themselves with names like Republican, Democrat, LBGTQ, Black Hispanic, etc., and then attack each other instead of working together.
I reckon that the people the president needs to trust to help the nation are a heap more concerned about helping themselves, and the only experts to turn to have already demonstrated that they don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground. Don’s primary political opponent has yet to emerge, as the opposing party is internally at war over its future direction, so just about as fast as a potential candidate comes forward, they back right the heck back out. Regardless of who it is, and who wins, I personally hope that the nation drops it’s servitude to harmful industries, begins to heal itself, diffuses international military tensions, and leads the world to a wondrous future.
Presidential Candidates Are Political Masochists
Nope, there ain’t no darn way I that understand why anyone would jump into the U.S presidential race screaming, “Me, me!” You see, to me becoming president is the act of volunteering oneself to become the nation’s whipping boy/girl, someone who – between ass whippings – is expected to save the world, but’s obstructed in every possible way. So in my opinion, presidential candidates are political masochists. But I think the world’s overdue for a change, and hopefully that change will be a move away from self destruction and onto global reconstruction. Now if I had any advice to Don, it’d be to pull a shitload of broadcasting licenses, tell the nation to knock off it’s damn violent and hateful treatment of each other, and tell industry – in NO uncertain terms – that from now now on people are more important than profit.
