Well, you know what this week reminds me of? That line in the God Father movies where Pacino say just when I think I’m out the draw me back in, that’s how I feel when I have to talk about Trump and the Republicans. I try not to talk about them but they continue to try and destroy Democracy. They have proven that the threat to this country isn’t from Russia,China, North Korea, or the Mid East it’s sitting in Bedminster NJ and it’s name is Donald Trump. For people who Profess they wish to make this country great again they sure are trying to fuck it up. For those of you that don’t think this can happen, just look at history. Every great society has toppled yes some have been invade but most are destroyed from within. Greed the desire for power and the trampling of human rights are the true causes of collapse. If you want to see what the US might look like in ten years look at Cuba and Venezuela and you’ll know. The people that politicians like to refer to as the silent majority need to wake the fuck up stop worrying about the price of gas and start worrying are they going to be able to complain about it without going to jail. Everything we take for granted is at stake now even if we don’t want to think so. When people start to believe lies and not the truth Democracy is lost.

Good morning to you all. Well, I’m ready so lets go. The Republican party is trying to stop the Bi-Partisan Committee on the insurrection of Jan 6 from happening and people want to know why. The reasons are fairly obvious they don’t want to see proof that they are wrong. They don’t want to see Kevin McCarthy have to listen to his own voice proving he’s full of shit. They don’t want to explain how Marjorie Taylor Greene got elected in a state where they think the election was rigged for Democrats. These goings on are once again proving that the two party system is failing the people of this country and that line Jack used “ The truth you can’t stand the truth is becoming a reality in politics. I had hoped , in what has turned my naive optimism, that I would be writing about politics now but those ass holes just had to prove me wrong. I don’t think the Mafia was as afraid of Gotti as the Republicans are of Trump. The thing is he’s a fat lying ex President with more legal problems than anyone else in this country. So, what is it that he has over these people If they have Presidential aspirations they should know he’s never going to let that happen. He’ll run his kids first. I think Mitchell and McCarthy fear that if he goes down they’re questionable acts will be brought out into the daylight. OK. I’ve had my fill of this for the day so, this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

A GOOD LADY IS GONE

May 16, 2021

Well the Republicans fired good old Liz this week in what was, one of their dumbest moves yet. They took a person who had supported Trump 93% of the time and because she spoke the truth and voted in the Public interest she gets fired. Well, with everything else the Republicans say and do this doesn’t surprise me. They are also supporting changes in state election laws that will enable state officials o defy the will of the electorate. What I don’t understand is how these people can give up on their own beliefs and political aspirations in favor of supporting an a man who would be king. They also are willing to believe whatever he says without a shred of proof. It does not bode well for Democracy is he or one of his children gains a position of leadership in this country. This makes all decisions by Biden greatly important and that they be right. Never in my lifetime have I seen an internal threat to our way of life like I see today. I hope Liz can get reelected and brings her common sense and decency back. I may not agree with everything she says or does but at least it wont’s be a lie. This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia

Well today is Mothers Day and we wish everyone a happy day. Did you know that in politics Mother is only half a word, at least according to Trump. We won’t be going there today. I got my second vaccination shot on Saturday and my wife got her first. I got Sinovac and she got Pfizer. We went to two different places. Her second shot is not scheduled to the end of June, which seems like a long time to me. All the violent protesting seems to be over down here for now. They got the tax plan canceled and caused the farmers and the locals pain. I can see food prices going up now. It looks like the possibility of world wide inflation is rearing its ugly head. Nobody seems to mention that ugly word inflation but instead just say prices are rising and there are shortages in the supply chain. The funny thing is the previous do nothing President is still saying nothing except he won. if he runs in 2024, and I’m still alive, and he wins I might have to give up my citizenship, it would be to hard to be part of a country that could elect that ass hole twice. So as I said at the top I’m fully vaccinated but down here that don’t mean shit. I’m still restricted as to when and where I can go, but if I take Antonia I can go anywhere I want vaccinated or not. Yes, Colombia is a strange place. This has been ANTONIA anf FATS saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

WHERE’S MY SHOT

May 2, 2021

Well I was supposed to get my second vaccine shot yesterday, but when we got to the clinic it was closed. They were afraid of political protests. So after spending cab fair we had to turn around and go home. I have no idea when we’ll get the second shot, hopefully they will call us on Monday. The protests have resulted in 6 people dying, 5 civilians and one police officer. They were protesting reform which included increases in taxes. Today the President rescinded the plan. Politics in this country is more screwed up then the US but not by much. The leading candidate in the next election is an ex mayor of Bogota, and ex rebel,he was almost indited when he was mayor. You know how I say there’s no such thing as an honest politician in the US, well that goes double down here. If this country actually stopped cocaine production it wold go bankrupt in a week. I had heard last week that they had run out of vaccine for the first shot but that they had enough for the second shots. I just hope nobody sold it yet. I read that it will take something like 640 days for this country to reach 70% vaccinated. that’s worse then America with Trump in charge. Well Antonia and me are going to take a nap so we’ll say this has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia
