[How to Extract] Blood from a Turnip

Documented photo of The Donald's inner child

[How to Extract] Blood from a Turnip

National politics: I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry, but the reality is, the current campaign for President is the most entertaining show in town. Whether it is the image of a vagina opposing a [tiny] penis, or that of mental incapacity versus physical, I am never properly prepared for the next installment.

It does not make any difference to me which one gets elected, because having lived through the charade that was W, I know I will never see worse. The man was a puppet for those running the show: Dick Cheney and Halliburton Corporation. That is a given.

At least having The Donald running means that the Republican Party has abandoned all pretext of presenting a national government that even gives lip service to the needs of the fifty million Americans living at or below the poverty level.

The Donald doesn’t even know they exist because they have nothing to offer except the $11.6 billion in overdraft penalty fees from not having sufficient funds to cover financial transactions. This means that banks took $11.6 BILLION from people who had already demonstrated that they had nothing.

And they say you can’t get blood from a turnip. ’Mericans can.
Yes, you can get blood from turnips.

And Hilary? Her brand of slease is right out there for us all to see and compare with Donald’s, and she just can’t match up. Yes, Hilary has always been a talking head for Monsanto, and the election frauds which occurred in both Arizona and New York on her behalf did not seem to faze her supporters in the least, so there is some balance here in the election.

The difference is that at least the Democratic party has programs in place, programs that acknowledge that our country has the responsibility of insuring that people who have no means of livelihood, have some hope. If the Democrats are voted out of office, that little smidgen of hope is gone.

If you are like me, and you are living off a fixed income, you are in a world of hurt either way you look at it. Colin Kaepernick did more for me with his sitting protest, than Hilary ever will, and all Colin did was raise awareness.

That The Donald would do anything for me, a vet and an old man, is ludicrous. I am nothing but an impediment to forward progress. The Republican Party does nothing for kids, poverty, education, veterans, the elderly or women.

So it doesn’t really matter to me if HE gets elected, as opposed to say, Mitt Romney. They are one and the same, as far as running the government. The Donald is an arrogant boor and even Romney is appalled that The Donald has the nomination, but they are cut from the same fabric. 

Just don’t get confused that life with either of them as leader, would be pretty for the poor.

I do not worry that The Donald will be able to do even half of what he claims to want to accomplish, because there are too many environmental and political safeguards in place to keep his ilk from running amok. Just look at what is going on in North Dakota right now.

A handful of peaceful protestors have temporarily shut down the pipeline that was illegally approved, and have raised public awareness of this and subsequent atrocities. These include launching trained attack dogs at pregnant women and children, in an effort to carry out the agenda.

So if and when The Donald tries to start building walls, there will be a reaction, and plenty of people like me, who are unwilling to step back into the twentieth century.

Conservatives tend to dis on political correctness, because it insists on treating everyone as though there is equality. You know? Blacks and Hispanics are supposed to rank right up there with caucasians, as far as respect goes?

Oops! I think that was Colin Kaepernick’s message: They don’t.
Would you vote for this hair?

And if you are at or below the poverty level, not only do you not count because you have nothing to offer, you become a liability because now the government has to help support you. It’s too bad some of the money lining the coffers of the top ten percent of the wealthy of this country, can’t be used to-well, never mind.

Yes, Hilary versus The Donald is entertainment value at its highest level. Trying to select one is like trying to decide if you want die by electrocution or firing squad; neither one is as "desirable" as lethal injection. I will, nonetheless, cast my vote for my party, which includes voting for its nominee, and it’s not the one with the bad hair.


Just do me a favor and don’t bother with the isopropyl alcohol when you insert the needle.

  1. Chilling. You are right on with the lack of attention for the poor. The gradual elimination of the middle class is frightening and the complete dismissal of the needs of so many is wrong. I appreciate the attention that Kaepernick is getting and wish more people would get off their high horse about the not standing and look at what he is saying. And while we're at it, can we ditch the Star Spangled Banner in favor of America the Beautiful (which, in its natural setting it is .... and so is the rest of the earth....).

    1. Thanks, JT. It is chilling because it is so far removed from what the men who formed this country had in mind. There is SO MUCH wealth, that no one should ever go hungry. Chilling.

    2. No one should ever go hungry but it seems that the very wealthy only want to acquire more wealth. I am going to research any examples of very wealthy people really and truly sharing their wealth (and not just for a tax write off). I need to know there is some hope there. Am I wrong in thinking that Warren Buffet offers some hope?
