Fake news is a not an excuse for accountability.

I haven’t posted much since I created this blog. So like a pressure cooker, I’ve built up some mental “steam” and I need to vent or I might explode.

 

It is no wonder why I am no longer a Republican because of this crap that I have to listen to coming through the airwaves every frigging day. If a dollar was deducted from our national debt every time, some walking pile of incompetence that is in the White House inner circle mentions the words “fake news”, this country would be in the black. And that would have actually been an accomplishment for this dysfunctional administration if this was possible … but this ain’t no happy, happy world. In the military there is a thing called psy ops or psychological operations, and sometimes a feel that every time the White House speaks to the press it is more psy ops than informing the public. Namely, it a sad and pathetic excuse at subliminal programming. Yes, keeping say “fake news” and eventually it we’ll all be regurgitating it at a Pavlovian level. Sure. Um, no. Maybe the frauds that have infiltrated the Republican party that have excused themselves from thinking FOR THEIR OWN DAMN SELVES, but anyone with half a functioning brain (even on crack) can see this for what it is. And this is nothing new with the Republican party. Sure if it is a non-Republican, let’s break out the pitchforks and torches and hold their feet to the fire in the name of accountability. If the shoes, however, falls on your foot instead of accountability, let’s put the blame on external elements or individuals. Or as the new administration strategy edicts: let’s just call the stuff fake news and hopefully the people would ignore them and listen to us instead. Yes, if we were a nation of lobotomized assholes. Good one.

Here’s an idea: how about owning up to the crap that you say and do. Believe it or not, people would actually respect you for it (including Democrats and liberals). I know it is a radical concept and has only been around for the last several MILLENIUMS. It doesn’t make you manly to toss people under the bus based on crap that YOU did. Anyone that thinks this is being “in charge” or “manly” are either internet trolls or assholes. In my book, it makes you look incompetent, unstable and untrustworthy. And the gall to call out other media as “fake news” whilst aligning yourself with the likes of The Enquirer (are you kidding me).  It is laughable. And a good reason why I tore up my Republican voter card. Who knows, maybe I’ll come back … when some sanity in the Republican party returns. Until then … sure.

 

P.S. Change your tampon, put down the Twitter account, stop picking fights with irrelevance, and do your DAMN JOB.

I am no longer Republican

I am your typical white American. Grew up in Texas in a moderately Republican household, moved to California where I went to high school and upon graduation enlisted in the Army. Served six years and to be honest, the closest I ever saw battle was when I as deployed to fight the first Gulf War. We all know how long that lasted. When I left the service, I was still in my twenties, so I went back to school and got my degree in mechanical engineering. And over the years one couldn’t help notice the change in the Republican “scheme” of things. There was a time when people lived by their word and their word was their bond. Today, a lot of folks talk the talk, but rarely walk the walk. I’ve seen this “party” call out the other guys when they messed up and some (not all) have actually taken accountability. The funny thing is when my party members get caught with their hands in the till, the accountability goes out the window and then comes the scapegoating, the blame game and lame excuses. There is a word for that, folks: hypocrisy. Case and point: when a certain Democrat president got caught with his zipper undone, it became a year-long witch hunt that was downright embarrassing (if you read the court transcript). Interestingly enough, when another Republican got caught sleeping around with MALE pages … all of a sudden, it was a case for a rehab stint. No taxpayers’ dollars wasted on embarrassing witch hunts. So apparently, there is two sets of rules, for dealing with same problem. What a farce. And a waste of taxpayers’ time and money. Last election only proved to me that people are so damned blinded by hate and anger that logic and common sense have sacrificed on the altar of nationalism.  Which is even more sad. As a veteran (and the son of a Vietnam veteran) I took it quite hard when the plight of American POWs were not only mocked but insulted, and yet to find people from my “party” that were willing to stand behind this.That was the last straw. I’ve discussed my stance with my family and though they’ve decided to stay they do understand where I am coming from. Especially my father. And so I am no longer Republican since I no longer recognize my party and the frauds that populate it. I fear that my “party” AND my faith has been hijacked my mostly frauds. And no, I will definitely not become Democrat. I will be Independent.
