We don't have this wrapped up. Keep your eye on the ball.

Stop buying the daily, weekly, monthly bullshit that Trump is done. The horrible monster isn't through until he's beaten in November and then dragged from the White House on January 20, 2021.

The Republican Party will do everything in their power to avoid the defeat of Trump and the loss of the senate. And by everything, I mean EVERYTHING. They will close polling places in black areas as they have already done in Kentucky. The governor of Florida has already fired and appointed a new (Republican) election supervisor in Palm Beach County, FL, a Democratic stronghold. They will do anything they have to do to hold onto power. They never bought into that "Make America Great Again" bullshit Trump was peddling. The true motto of the Republican Party is "Me, me, me and fuck everyone else."

Anyone who thinks that an obvious madman in the White House can't win this election is deluding themselves. We are up against an enemy who thinks that the "wrong side" won the Civil War. And make no mistake about it. Republicans are our deadly enemies. We must, MUST win the presidency and the senate.

And if we can pull that off, we will have many years of work in front of us to repair the immense damage they have done. But, of just as great importance, we must hold those who have spent the past four years trying to destroy our democracy accountable. Trump and his criminal enterprise cannot be allowed to just walk away. If they do, it will be a message to the next gangsters who come along that there is no cost for trying to fuck and steal democracy.

A suicidal convention

Trump is demanding that the Republican convention be held in an arena in Jacksonville, Florida. And my guess is that Republican senators, house members and state delegations will show up because they're too afraid not to.

Will there be masks? Will there be self-distancing? Not if Trump has his way.

Actually, I don't give a rat's ass about any of these people. If they're stupid enough to obey their fuhrer during a pandemic, they are acting like lemmings and doing their best to destroy themselves.

But those I pity are secret service and other security people who will be forced to be there. Those who work the jobs of running the arena will have to show up or, probably get fired. The same is true for everyone else associated with this insanity who will be forced to be there, including the media.

Trump is a prick who doesn't care about any of these people. IMO, everyone should say "fuck this," and stay home. But you just know that ain't gonna happen. That so many would put their health, and perhaps lives at risk to satisfy the ego of a madman is pure insanity.

Do you suppose the last night will include a corvid-19 shaped balloon drop?

Florida has been fucked for decades. It should be a blue state.

There are 67 counties in Florida. Many are small and rural. Some are bigger and conservative.

However, the three most populous counties in Florida are on the lower South East coast. They are Miami-Dade County, Broward Country, and Palm Beach county. They represent half the voters in Florida and they are Democratic strongholds.

Yet, the state has been controlled by Republicans for decades due to gerrymandering.

Want proof of how blue Florida is? Look back to the 2000 election. Al Gore won it. But the Supreme Court (in it's infamous wisdom) appointed George W. Bush president. (That's called a stolen election.)

In virtually every election in the 21st Century, countless thousands of votes have been "lost" in Florida due to some unexplained reason.

Republicans control the state congress and the governorship and they pretty much get to decide which way Florida goes in elections for the senate and the presidency. So I guess the old saying, "It's who counts the votes that matters," holds true.

Florida has been fucked for decades and will likely be screwed again in this year's presidential election. (If all votes were to be fully counted in Florida, Joe Biden would be the next president.)

So what do we do about this? Beats me. When one of the most populous states in the country is consistently stolen by a party of thugs, how do you overcome it? Revolution? I don't think so.

But somehow, there must be a way to overcome the disease of fascism, racism and outright evil that is the Republican Party. And until that happens, too many people will continue to believe in the fiction that has, unfortunately, been labeled "Floriduh."

Trump is a hero to the KKK, neo-Nazis and bigots everywhere

His "Nuremberg Rallies" are proof of this.

His "dog whistles" that have become foghorns are proof of this.

His use of violence on peaceful protesters is proof of this.

His urging police to "stop the thugs" is proof of this.

His love of statues and flags that scream "Southern Heritage" bullshit is proof of this.

His attempted use of the U.S. military to quash demonstrators is proof of this.

His call for "Law and Order" is a shout of pure venom and is proof of this.

His entire life has consisted of hatred of "The Other" and is proof of this.

His tombstone won't be big enough to hold the names of all the groups of haters who admire him. He has spit on the Constitution. He has caused countless deaths by ignoring Covid-19, and those murdered due to his hate speech. He is both malicious and stupid. He is a stain on America that cannot be erased.

His name and image will become as despised as the Nazi and Confederate flags. What more proof is needed to clarify why this soulless, evil coward is so admired by the haters of the world.
