I was going to answer that the way it deserved to be answered, but decided to self-censor.

Here is a song for both of you - perfect for the mean streets of W Forum. : D

Born Under a Bad Sign - Albert King

You can find it for yourselves on you tube! I am
Watching meteors right now.

Of course, Cream’s version is also great - with that ferocious Ginger Baker.

Cream were a kind of faux-Blues group. With or without a mad drummer! They were invented by the BBC to make Blues palatable to British audiences.

“On the assumption I win, we are going to be terminating the payroll tax after the beginning of the new year”.

Translated into normal people language: “I’ll eliminate Social Security and Medicare, because those are for losers.”

So, Trump had a banner day today. Going on record that he wants to destroy the US Postal Service to squash voting against him. And questioning whether VP candidate Kamala Harris is eligible to run, because she is brown, horrible and icky! And, as usual, lying about the US being the single worst managed country in the world with respect to covid.

You mispronounced Kamala. 

According to the internet ...
The failure to correctly pronounce Harris’ name — especially among those whose jobs it is to know — is just a racist dog whistle being used to belittle Harris, who is Black and Indian-American.

I will probably stop posting soon. But, at this point, knowing what we now know, any kind of support for the GOP should be considered treasonous and punished accordingly.

Would the guillotine suffice? And just exactly how many millions would you like to kill?

Given the numbers involved, the gulliotine is a bit inefficient. And there is the issue with all those heads rolling around. But, it’s a start.

Joe Biden is a fascist. Hopefully we can shut down the post office so that he won’t get any fake votes from them Mexican rapists. Or other yucky brown and black people. Who obviously should have no rights, let alone the right to vote.

So Trump, with a brain the size of a small walnut, is now actively supporting QAnon. For those not familiar, it is a group of politicians, terrorists, and conspiracy theorists who believe they are waging a secret war against a deep state of paedophile cannibals. Like Hilary Clinton. Obviously! You just can’t make this stuff up.

Trump is certainly a sucker for self-serving conspiracy theories.

So, if a group was dedicated to helping former QAnon members recover, would it be called QAnonAnon?

I couldn’t think of a happier outcome than Bannon going to prison and the donors being defrauded of their contributions. That’s a win-win situation!

Has the penny dropped with the 'donors'?
