John & Joe.

You might as well face it. Although America was founded a republic, those in power treat it as a monarchy. The people — that’s you and the rest of the rabble — are unable to quell the tyranny. Maybe don’t want to. Unintentionally, in years past, Hollywood actually wrote today’s tyrannical script — sort of. The times were different; technology was different; but human nature and the lust for power were constant. The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), however fanciful, tells the oft-told tale. Comparing then and now is easy enough. Prince John is the illegitimate Regent of England, having stolen the Crown from his brother. You on the other hand are ruled by J. Biden whose election in 2020 was forensically absurd.  To use the “S” word is heresy, bordering on treason. Ask DT. Ask Jan. 6 felons. Prince John is surrounded by his Earls, Barons, Dukes and their henchmen. Biden has the CIA, DOJ, FBI and partisan Judges. John uses the Sheriff of Nottingham to exact payment of unreasonable taxes on the serfs, leaving them destitute and nowhere to turn. Biden uses executive privilege to enact policies that undermine America’s economic system, killing businesses and people — literally. But strong opposition rises against Prince John in the dashing form of Robin Hood, Earl of Locksley, who organizes the Saxons to fight the unlawful Regent. In a forceful response, John issues the command: “Have it proclaimed in every village that this Saxon Locksley’s an outlaw. Hang anybody that gives him shelter or aid. His possessions are forfeit to the crown. Seize his castle and his lands. Everything he owns.” Remind you of anyone? Over 700 years later, in America, Biden has marshaled his army of surrogates against his rival, real estate developer D. Trump, in a crusade to crush him — and to seize his property, his land and everything else he owns. Eventually, thanks to Robin Hood, the true King Richard (Lionheart) returns to England, banishes his brother John and proclaims, “I further banish from my realm all injustices and oppression….which have burdened my people. And I pray that under my rule….Normans and Saxons alike will share the rights of Englishmen.” Unfortunately, in America, no benevolent King is in the wings. Any speech D. Trump might make “to banish injustice and oppression” is on hold, as he struggles to remain on the presidential ballot. As this new drama plays out, you finally understand why monarchies, empires and other dictatorships would not (and still do not) recognize the righteousness of a democratic society. Eventually, free individuals in a free society do not respect the obligations of freedom, instead voting for some type of government subsidy and security. You might as well face the brutal truth. The majority prefers a “guaranteed dependency” to the continual stress of self reliance and independence; thus choosing the dole. In that regard, John’s monarchy and Joe’s republic (so-called) have much in common — each encouraging and stimulating dependency. Running a country is much, much easier when the little people operate on a leash, so to speak. BTW, if you’re not under a rock, you know that the ultimate subjugation — the leash — is just around the corner. It’s called CBDC — Central Bank Digital Currency. You might as well call it CBDS — Central Bank Digital Slavery, Matilda, because your skinny ass will soon be owned. If Trump is elected and allowed to be President, he will squash CBDC temporarily. But only the Supreme Court can bury it. Would it? Seeing what the SCOTUS has already done and not done in your lifetime, you are sure to meet Big Brother soon enough — and intimately — much like a new penitentiary inmate. Apparently, over half the country doesn’t give a rip, as long as they have three hots and a cot, a device and free health care. As for the rest of you alleged freedom lovers? Think COS. You see, it’s not about you. It’s about those you love. And their unborn.


As you get older or old enough, you’re more inclined to disconnect the governor that regulates what brain you have left — leaving you to foolishly publish what thoughts demand your attention. Although your intent is to be constructive, the likelihood is that family, friends, acquaintances and certainly enemies will say those thoughts are simplistic, have no validity and are capriciously fault-finding. You can’t argue with that assessment. That said, you excuse yourself for having unsubstantiated opinions because you represent the vast majority of other slugs like yourself — ordinary people who walk through life thinking what they think based merely on deduction or presumption or prejudice. Well, Matilda, America is a great country because Her people are free to presume — free to offer dumb opinions, offend a grandmother or call the president a jerk. If there were no other reason to live in America, being free to speak your piece is worth “a king’s ransom.” Which brings you to say some things you’ve always thought but mostly kept to yourself out of self interest. But now that your sense of self is quickly vanishing and your interest is basically irrelevant, why not stick your neck out?

Barring another bombshell accusation, it seems that DT is the GOP standard bearer. That fact shouldn’t come as a surprise to you, but it does; because most of the people you hang with prefer that Donald hop the Trump Tower UP escalator and stay up,  to remain unseen indefinitely, like the famous germaphobe celebrity Howard Hughes. The people you hang with, and countless others who populate the Internet and mainstream media, concede that President Trump did an impressive job while in power, but they can’t mask a veiled sneer as part of their acknowledgement. The people you hang out with prefer political corruption and tyrannical stability over political brawls and uncertainty instigated by master provocateur and political trespasser Trump. There’s more to it, of course. They don’t like a wise ass, a bragger and name caller. It turns out that the people who detest Donald are movers and shakers, good citizens, church goers, business owners and educators — by and large, America’s respectable white-collar citizenry. They in fact represent town establishments, city and state governments, dedicated to economic growth, opportunity, health and prosperity for all. Politically, they are quick to declare that Federal Government power should be limited. That something needs to be done, by golly, about the national debt. Also about the border. About inflation. About corruption. About Ukraine. That’s what they say. That’s what they say — for show. But deep down, admit it or not, the establishment at home is precisely like the establishment in Washington. Deep down, the establishment is OK with business as usual. Stability is their idol. However it may be justified, disruption to that stability is not in their immediate interest. For example, the legal profession loves rigorous, complicated government regulations for reasons that don’t need explaining to anyone with a heartbeat. The financial sector loves government spending and convoluted tax law. Accounting firms would blow a fuse if governments implemented a fair, simplified tax form that any slob could understand and file. The bigger the government, the better it is, for big corporations, big non-profits and lobbyists who love doing business with the biggest buyer in the world. Now that your Federal Government runs the medical establishment, the insurance companies and HMOs can rely on rules that assure hospital and  doctor compliance. Why go on? The Federal Government runs the show and has no intention to limit its jurisdiction and power — not an iota. The people you hang with and don’t hang with, the billionaire set, the ordinary filthy rich, the vast media industrial complex, military industrial complex, as well as the vast welfare complex — all have a vested interest in the Federal Government gravy train. The only group off that train is a big one — the broad American working class. You call them producers. They are blue collar and white collar. They make things, build things and fix things. They drive trucks, fly planes, climb poles and protect the vulnerable. Millions of them own small businesses. The gravy train is not for them. Never has been. They don’t prosper because of Government policy. They prosper despite government policy. They don’t ask. They don’t take. They give. They are the original Tea Party. They populated Jan. 6, not out of self-serving interest. No. Out of love for their country. And here’s the thing that gnaws at your gut. Some people you hang with blame them. Blame them for protesting. Blame them for being there. Imagine that. Imagine that. It’s a chilling realization. You have only one regret — you weren’t there to stand with them.

Despite Biden’s destructive administration and low poll numbers and Donald’s sweeping nomination, you have not an ounce of confidence about 2024. Despite the Trump momentum, you worry because some people you hang with and other people of substance who truly don’t appreciate Biden, are madly in love with the gravy.

It’s Time.

It’s an election year. Time for abortion to leave the national stage. Forever. It’s been over 50 years since the SCOTUS ruled that The Constitution generally gave females the right to have abortions. The ruling put “unborn” lives in the hands of millions of these females and the result was that the heartbeats of millions of unborn lives were terminated. Zap. Like stepping on bugs. Being crude is rude. Sorry, but five decades of political abuse and institutionalized killing is worth at least a brutish slap in the face now and then. Now it’s time to talk some common sense. No one will solve the core question. When does life begin? So-called pro-life people, including an atheist or two, say life begins at conception. So-called pro-choice people say life begins when a baby takes his/her first breath out of the womb (those who are offended because other genders aren’t mentioned here should exit this site — immediately). The politicians, self appointed experts and legal eagles think it’s up to them to decide when life is viable and may not be interrupted. Step right up, foks, pick a time, any time — 12 weeks, 16 weeks, 36 weeks. Now that the SCOTUS has punted the abortion ball, the decision belongs to the States or to the Courts. You say it’s “baloney,” exchanging Washington autocrats for local autocrats. No sane person will disagree that taking a breath is undeniable evidence — evidence that is unarguable proof that life exists. That’s a step . No infant should be destroyed after breathing on his/her own. Ending that life is murder. You must recognize, however, that millions believe abortion at any stage of gestation is murder — punishable as a crime. The Christian religion — perhaps all religions — takes a rather dim view of abortion. Then again, millions are free not to be religious. They and others believe in nothing, much less God. They are free to worship Dracula, free not to follow any moral or ethical code whatsoever. Face it, the differences between choice and life are irreconcilable. So it’s time you put aside those differences and suggest what is unacceptable. If you believe in sovereignty of the individual, Governments should leave the pregnancy decision alone to its own devices. That kind of suggestion does nothing but leave both lifers and choosers equally pissed, or as they say in polite society, equally indignant. Each side is irrevocably intractable. So it’s time to let God decide and let God pass judgment and let Society be free to accept or reject abortion on an individual basis. In other words, mind your own business. Of course, it’s not that easy, is it, Matilda? If that’s the way you want it, a lot has to change. Specifically, no government can have the right to use one penny of public treasuries — federal, state or local — to fund the abortion business. Pregnancy is not an illness. With the exception of rape, it is discretionary — arrived at by choice — by intent, by carelessness, promiscuity or stupidity. Without government assistance of any kind, females must manage their abortions whenever, wherever and however they choose. They have options. Planned Parenthood, as a private business, is always poised to welcome them as they line up to cancel junior. There will always be individual medical practitioners who will discreetly terminate pregnancies. You understand that coat hangers and other primitive procedures are no longer in vogue, but knowledgeable midwives are still in business.. It’s time to acknowledge that females have redundant ways to prevent and end pregnancies. You are told that not the least of these are contraception, abstinence. and the “morning after pill.” Whatever the case, abortion is off the table as a societal responsibility. It’s an individual responsibility. Or does that take the fun out of doing the big trick? Regardless, abortion is a cost of living, like your Botox, Starbucks, spring break, Vuori athletic wear, iPhone 15 or a night out with friends. Some party has to pay for it. Truly, that party is you. Or your sperm donor, insurance company, parents, United Way, Family Services, Red Cross, not-for-profit or for-profit party. But not governments. Never governments. It’s time to end it. Like stepping on a bug.

Note:  Government has a responsibility to enforce laws already on the books —  laws that disallow the marketing of fetal tissue — laws to prevent women from being paid to grow babies for harvesting. Left alone, traffickers would establish underground baby factories for the sale and distribution of aborted tissue. Anti-life cartels never go away. Ed.
