603101_10200262962761274_1667488794_nBy now you’ve all read my Trumpster comments and some are now calling me a liberal Democrat hack. Well I don’t like label like liberal, conservative and I especially don’t like terms like Democrat or Republican. You see I think all politicians suck. And to further clarify my opinion I thought Hillary was a crook and a liar as well. What really bothers me about politicians is their elitist attitude towards the common man or woman. You they think that we really don’t know what’s good for us and we need them to tell us. That’s why they say one thing to get elected then turn around and do something else. But wait you say didn’t the Trumpster ok his wall, ban Muslims and threaten business’s with tariffs if they don’t come back to the US. Well yes and no. Yes because he did sign executive orders to do those things. But no, because they will be challenged and quite possibly blocked by Congress and the Courts. So what did he do that wasn’t what he said he was going to do? He didn’t empty the swamp he stocked it with Goldman Sacks people and old time politicians. See they all do this Obama was no saint in this regard. I mean look at the last really beloved Presidents JFK and Regan. JFK turned out to be a womanizer who stacked his cabinet with friends. Now you can’t say the Trumpster stacked his government with friend because don’t believe he has any real friends just business associates. Everybody pretty much loved Regan but once he was out and the democrats got in they wanted to change everything just like now. Speaking of change since its inception the Republicans have wanted to repeal Obama care. Well that’s OK with me but let’s have a plan to replace it first so as not to cause more confusion. I find this party based politics sucks and prevents real progress from being made. Maybe we need another major party. But wait you say that will just cause confusion. What the hell is going on now? Look for more on this from us in the future also we promise to bring back some humor from time to time as well as favorite stories on STUFF.

img_20170122_0001By now you’ve all seen the video clip of the Trumpster walking in to the white house and leaving his wife at the curb. I was wondering how many of you were surprised by this? I wasn’t one I’ve seen the Trumpster walk on stage or into a room and the only thing he cares about is that he’s the center of attention. He never lets anyone have the last word and he’s not going to let his wife go first. If he could he wouldn’t let the secret service walk in front of him. Now I have some friends that are upset with me for picking on the Trumpster. Those that are real die hard supporters are complaining about me because I don’t live in the United States. I understand this and if I could afford it I would go back and live there. But I can’t afford it I mean I pay $37.00 a month for health insurance and if there’s a co pay it’s usually around one or two dollars. Now not even Obama care was that good. I have a 3 bedroom apartment that costs about 290 dollars I live on 1327.00 dollars a month sometimes with a little left over to put into savings. If I was back in the US I would have to work and my body says that ain’t going to happen. So when you show me where I can live on what I earn and have what I have in the US I will be more than happy to return, in the mean time I’m still a citizen with taxes and everything else so feel there’s no problem in me exercising my constitutional right of free speech.

14993387_10154273237048935_6387091328721715639_nI actually had something else in mind in the way of a post for today, but after reading some comments about the women’s march yesterday I decided to take this direction instead. First let say congratulations to those who marched you really pulled it off now you must keep it going. You need not to listen to the Trumpster’s tweets but instead keep an eye on you r state and federal legislator use him as a distraction while they pass laws that will strip you of your rights. The Trumpster is just words the rest of them will do his dirty work. If you study his business’s you’ll notice that whenever something unpleasant had to be done he would do his best to distance himself from it. The republicans are trying desperately to remove most if not all of Obama’s legislation and I don’t object to that I object to the fact that they have nothing to put in its place. This has been going on for eight years. Which brings me to another point, maybe this two party system has become so bogged down with partisan politics as to render it obsolete. It may just be a time for change. But ladies getting back to you, it’s necessary for you to remain united if you want to accomplish anything other than TV ratings. I would suggest pulling together and taking on the issues one at a time. By doing this you’ll have the strength in numbers to make the politicians listen. I’ve just read comments from the Trumpster about you march yesterday and he wants to know why you didn’t vote that and his lie about his TV ratings for his inauguration are making me laugh so hard it’s difficult for me to type this. Any married or in a relationship guy will tell it’s not a smart idea to piss off a woman, and it would appear that the Trumpster pissed off most of them in the world. Ladies, women I’m not sure how to address you but I do look forward to helping support your efforts to thwart the Trumpster plans for America, by doing so we might just save the world.

AND NOW IT BEGINS

January 20, 2017

maxresdefaultWell it’s done the Trumpster is officially the president. He’s asked American to swear allegiance to the United States sort of what Hitler did when he was sworn in as chancellor of Germany. But I’m not saying the Trumpster is a Fascist I don’t know that and it would be wrong for me to say so. I will say that he’s the most ignorant president we’ve ever had and that’s more dangerous than being a Fascist in my opinion. He believes Climate Change is a hoax he wants to increase Coal production he wants to bring back Steel production to the US. Hey Trumpster it left because countries like Japan produced a cheaper and higher quality of steel, just like when imports starting flooding the market people bought them because yes they were cheaper but they were also better made. I’d like to see manufacturing return but not at the expense of the environment. But I don’t think it’s feasible to think that manufacturing employment number will ever reach the highs of the past. He says buy American and Hire American I don’t see John Q citizen washing dishes at the restaurant on the corner. I don’t see American butting in 18 hour days at the 7/11. It will also cause inflation. You see if you charge more for products people need more money to pay for the so they want raises now when that happens it effects the bottom line of the corporation which means the CEOS can’t get paid as much so what happens? Prices go up and the cycle begins all over. It happens over night not over months. Look at the gas pumps it takes about 4 months for oil in the pipeline to get from wherever to your pumps. But if the price of oil goes up this morning the price of your gasoline goes up this afternoon. How do think those oil companies make those ridicules profit numbers. I don’t see the Trumpster going down in history books that way he wants I see a lot of heart ache ahead for the little guy and the rest of the world.

NUFF SAID

maxresdefaultHere’s part two of today’s post. You’ve all read about the coming inauguration and who’s going to perform and attend and whose not. Well personally I don’t give a shit I’ve never watched one and I’m not about to start now. You want to know why? Because it’s boring and everybody is lying making promises either they aren’t or can’t keep. They forget that the attention span of somebody sitting and listening to a bunch of speeches is about ten minutes before their attention stars to wander and at about the twenty minute mark their basically asleep with their eyes opened. The press is usually handed copies of every ones speeches so if they even bother to go they’re not paying attention. I’ll read the short version the next morning while I take my morning dump. This has nothing to do with the fact that it’s the Trumpster getting sworn in I just don’t have the attention span to listen to a couple of hours of bullshit then watch a bunch of elite pricks slapping each other on the backs because they get to spend the next four years screwing the very people who are responsible for them being here. Now like I said they all make false promises but with the Trumpster he’s liable to change his mind before he gets off the podium. Everybody should but you DVR on and record this then in a couple of weeks look at and see how he’s deigned or just changed his mind. This is Flounder and Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia

END OF A ERA

January 15, 2017

ringling-brothers-and-barnum-and-bailey Gonna be a couple of posts today on account I have two different topics to discuss. First I just read that Ringling Brothers Circus is closing after a 146 year. I saw that PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) is claiming victory well they can kiss my ass. If it wasn’t for the circus and zoos millions of children would never get to really know how beautiful and majestic animal can be. I first went to the Circus when I was very young. Before the main performance we were able to visit what was called the menagerie where I got to feed elephants and monkeys. Back then the animals I saw seemed to be doing ok but I was kid so I really don’t know. I know the ASPCA went after the circus for mistreatment of Asian elephants. The claim was mad by a barn worker for the circus. The suit was dismissed when the judge decided the worker wasn’t credible. In 2012 Ringling sued the ASPCA under the RICO act and was awarded 9.2 million dollars when it was proved the ASPCA had paid the barn worker 190,000 dollars to file the suit. Feld who was owner of the circus also got 25.2 million dollars from animal right groups for defamation of character. The circus employ’s full time vets and in 1995 opened the Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida for breeding research and retirement of its Asian elephants. All domestic dogs that perform in the circus are rescued from pounds. The circus also participates in breeding programs for endangered species, something I don’t see PETA doing. The Tigers in the circus are retired to Big Cat Reserve. And I know that the famous trainer Gunther Williams built a retirement reserve for all of his animals when he retired. So here we sit one old guy that remembers the animals and developed a love for all animals from watching the circus and on the other side you have an organization, which does a lot of good but would make it impossible for the average adult or child to ever see these animals in real life. Down here in Colombia I went to the famed criminal Pablo Escobar’s home which has been turned into a zoo and got to see Tigers, Lions, Monkees, Hippos and even a Rhino running around enjoying themselves. Without the circus and the zoo these animal will be nothing more than pictures in a book. Without the circus I would never have met Emmett Kelly the sad clown. So yes to me this is a sad day because children won’t be able to dream of running away to join the circus anymore. This is Flounder and Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

FREE PRESS

January 13, 2017

9445881_orig The Trumpster would have you believe that the media is doing nothing but lying when they say something that is contrary to what he says. Now this isn’t the first time a president has accused the press of attacking him falsely remember Richard Nixon. The Trumpster wants to discredit the media because he’s a billionaire business man and like a politician he lies. Billionaire’s don’t become that by caring about the little guy no they get there by ruthlessly crushing those in their way. Do you think the Trumpster or Hillary really cared about the veterans or the poor and homeless? Look around you after all these years the most neglected groups are homeless, homeless vets, the elderly, orphans, and the American Indian. The last one might surprise you but they have the longest history of neglect. The Trumpster, Hillary, and the rest of the political world bring up these groups only when doing so will be beneficial to them or their purpose. This and other thing hidden in their past are what makes a free press scary to them. Let’s look back and compare. Remember Richard Nixon saying famously to the American people “I’m not a crook.” Sounds a lot like the denials of the Trumpster, Hillary and other politicians during and after the election doesn’t it. Without a free press and the work done by two reporters Bernstein, and Woodward and their famous informant Deep Throat Nixon would never have been caught and forced to resign to avoid criminal prosecution. I Believe the Trumpster remembers this and other incidents where wrong doing by a politician resulted in the press ruining their careers or at least their legacy’s. The fact that there is fake news out there is nothing new politicians and business men as well as countries have used misinformation to help put threw their own agendas. The Trumpster wants you to believe only what comes out of his mouth and not any other source. If any of you have read any of my posts you know my opinion of politicians they all lie and don’t give a shit about anybody but themselves. Politicians are for the most part the elite of society the so called 1%. They believe that the average person doesn’t know what’s really good for them and that they, the politician does, and the Trumpster is definitely in this category. He might even be much worse since he believes, he even smarter than his fellow politicians. So in closing let me say what’s been said so many times before without a free press we would have long ago become a totalitarian society.

renfrowLast night I had the privilege of watching one of the greatest college championship football games of all time. Alabama had won 26 games in a row and it was supposed to keep going. What I found most interesting about the game was that it took a black quarterback throwing the ball to a white receiver in order for Clemson to win the game. I wonder what the Trumpster and his Bigoted, Racists friends have to say about that. For me it proves something I’ve known most of my life those Minorities whether they are black or like some countries white need each other in order to survive and be successful. I can’t wait to hear how the Trumpster tweets this. This also proves to me that college football is far more entertaining than the professional version. But that aside the more important aspect is that working together whites and blacks can accomplish greater things than working separately.

A TRUE LADY OF THE ARTS

January 9, 2017

170109-meryl-streep-mn-0725_9c4f82e1491a2bdc485bb239e2bad476-nbcnews-ux-2880-1000Wow I guess everybody has heard about Meryl Streep’s speech at the golden globes. She managed to piss off the Trumpster which means it was a great speech. She also it seems pissed off Mixed Martial arts fans as well by implying that they weren’t really arts. Guess what boys there not MMA is the somewhat legitimate version of underground gage fighting that had been and still is banned in most states. It is not an art form and either is boxing. I’m not a fan of either but so long as people want to do it and it is regulated as best as can be I’m not going to cry out for its banishment. After all I can chose not to watch or watch it if I want. But to get upset because someone is complaining that it isn’t an art and why is so much of it on TV well that’s just stupid. Meryl was called overrated by the Trumpster today and I have to say if anyone is overrated it’s him. his major claim to business fame is he never manages to lose his money just everybody else’s who is involved with him. He has proven he’s unable to take criticism as well as jokes about himself. Every President has at one time or another been fodder for comedians but with the Trumpster it seems his only since of humor coms when he say “YOUR FIRED” . Maybe we’ll get lucky and politicians and the people will get together to tell him HE”S FIRED. One last note Meryl Streep is a very fine actress and a great person to call her an overrated actress is just one more way the Trumpster shows is ignorance.
