Results of the 2016 Roundup

The Trump Knives and Branding Irons Have Done their Work
Poor “Moscow” Mitch. Absolute power does corrupt. Chimps, bonobos, and Homo Sapiens share over 99% of DNA. The Senate Majority Leader could not even wait for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body to reach room temperature before he announced the Senate would vote for Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court as soon as possible. Bonobos love each other and use sex to pacify relationships. Chimps and humans love or hate each other and are power hungry. Mitch is one or the other. I think he’s more of a chimp.

Since the fall roundup in 2016, Mitch has been branded A@T (Always-Trumper) because he could diabolically use Trump for his own political ends. Mitch’s mother must be proud. Anything to justify the means. And then most of the Republican Congresspersons lined up after Trump’s election during the fall roundup--and were castrated or sterilized into becoming Trumplicans. As a farm boy who helped castrate pigs and cattle, I noticed the results almost immediately among the gelded and spayed. The losers become zombie-like cult followers. Trumplicans have now been “vaccinated” against reality. The problem is they vote.

In the 2020 Election, The Main Issue Is Actually Age Difference
The median American is now38 years old. That means he-she was born about a year after President Ronald Reagan’s first tax cuts. But the leadership of the country is the oldest in history. The median senator is 65 years old and is most likely a millionaire. The median house representative is 58 and a strong minority has reached millionaire status. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is 78 and married into multi-millionaire status. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is 80 and a millionaire. President Donald Trump is a psychopathic senile 74 and claims he is a billionaire. Joe Biden is a very old 77 and finally reached millionaire status a couple of years ago. Seton Hall Professor Patrick Fisher specializes in research in the political dynamics of political age. He says the difference of age between the generations often underlies “a profound difference in world view.” His conclusion about the difference: “Demographically, politically, economically, socially, and technologically, the generations are more different from each other now than at any time in living memory.”

Carol Burnett at a young 87 has always been my Queen of Comedy because of an active mind, expressive face, and the ability to laugh at herself. At 17 she was editor of her LA high school newspaper and wanted to go to UCLA and major in journalism, but her family was poor and couldn’t afford the $43 tuition. An anonymous donor sent her $50 cash in the mail for her first year’s tuition. Her career is history, but she still does not know who the donor was. Her philosophy of life: “Learn to cope and live in the now!” If she had been born in 1982 instead of 1933 she probably would be still living in her parent’s…
