As I could currently be a poster boy for prolonged tonsorial neglect ---maestro, please------

"I let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home for the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for the buzzin' bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair
Grow it, show it
Long as I can grow it
My hair"


Trump is the "man withOUT a plan"---or a clue---or a shred of decency---or

a single true friend on the face of the earth---or a sense of shame---or a single dollar to his name that was honestly earned---or the respect of any of his wives---or a child who does not endure him solely because they want a share of his wealth---or enough self esteem and confidence to face the public without lifts in his shoes, a painted face and a cantilevered coiffure of orange fibers---or the functional vocabulary of a fifth-grader---or any books that he has actually read---or-----------------.

That truthfully as a brief one line comment. The "clue" was a second thought that just popped up after I typed the first clause. Then, "shred of decency" was a third thought and---well, the list just sorta "took off". But, now, I am sure that the list is complete. I have named every single thing that Trump is "without".

Or---did I?

Parents---understand what Trump is saying with his "back to school" push:

"The market is bound to overcome this virus. Invest your children!"

Takes me back to the Sixties---"War is big business. Invest your son!"

In recent photos, Trump's skin looks really bad. Do you think he's about due

to shed? Or, maybe his human suit is just really starting to itch.

Perhaps someone in the White House Bund should explain to Herr Trump that

opening the doors of American businesses does not mean that customers will come through those doors in numbers sufficient to cover expenses. And, his "order" to reopen churches, synagogues and mosques did not fill the pews or prayer rugs in most places.

People are justifiably and reasonably scared that the highly contagious and deadly Corona virus is still surging through the countryside. Big cities; small towns, inner cities; farm country---the people understand that "it ain't over". And, THAT, as they say, is on you, Trump.

100,000 of us---and counting---have died and nearly 40 million of us---and counting---have lost our jobs. And, when you strut around waiving those tiny hands and pursing that sphincter-like mouth as you spew lie after lie after lie about what a great job you've done and how healthy and prosperous we'll all be after we re-elect you, listen carefully and you'll hear the muffled rumble as millions and millions and millions of voters mutter--- "bullshit!"

The spike is coming---mid-summer or so. And, there will be no "executive order" to "re-close". There will be no need for one. Businesses that can't meet payroll, pay their utility bill's or meet their loan payments will make the gut-wrenching decision themselves to shut their doors---most of them for good. And, THAT, too, is on you. It did not have to happen.

It has taken a while---too long in my opinion---but most Americans now see clearly that your dithering ignorance in response to this tragic pandemic is truly most accurately described as a clusterfuck of such epic proportions that no non-obscenity will serve to describe it.

He is cornered, folks, and, like a rat that feels the wall against his back, he will soon turn and start slashing at anything and anyone within reach. Buckle up. To use another animal analogy, the monkey has only just begun to fling his poop.

Would it be considered "over the top" if one were to mail gift certificates for the most crowded

local bars and restaurants to the more extreme and obnoxious "anti-lockdown" Trumpers in one's community?

Asking for a friend.

For those who don't want to wear a mask, I have an alternative.

Just hang a sign around your neck that reads: "I don't give a shit about anyone but ME!"

That sends the same message. Breathing will be easier, but sleeping? Not so much.

I am certain this will mark me as senile in the minds of some, but now and then,

playing certain BEATLES tunes just seems to take all the wind out of my sails. I've just stopped what I was doing to listen to George's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and the enormity of what has been pissed away between the first time I heard that song and now settled over me like a shroud.

I think my weekend will be a somber one.

Carry on.

To the "good Christians" demanding their "right" to meet in crowded churches, sing hymns

at each other and trust the words of the Psalms instead of the consensus opinion of doctors and scientists: I, for one, am 100% supportive of your exercise of what you term your "faith", PROVIDED that you not be back-sliding hypocrites.

Please publicly forswear any medical treatment in the event your faith does not protect you and you "somehow" become infected with the Corona virus. Having loudly declared your total reliance on Biblically promised protections, you surely would not want to sully the purity of your faith by accepting heathen remedies like oxygen masks and ventilators. So, "Onward Christian Soldiers"! Sign the "I Don't Need No Stinkin' Medical Care" pledge today!

And, when you attend services this weekend, remember: "Church ain't over till all the snakes are back in the box."

Bless your hearts!

About Joe's comment to Charlamagne Tha God: the sentiment is hardly new:

"A black man voting for the Republicans makes as much sense as a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders."

--J.C. Watts Sr., the father of rising ( black ) GOP star Rep. J.C. Watts. (Several decades ago)
