GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

March 8, 2020

Well Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the Presidential race this week and I find that sad. It caused two thing to happen. One she became something she has always criticized. That is a political power broker. Her endorsement of Biden would pretty much guarantee his nomination while her endorsement of Sanders would keep it a two person race and more than likely tear the Democratic party apart. The other thing it caused was it raised the question will there ever be a woman President. Now I believe yes just so long as there name aren’t Hillary or Ivanka. I don’t want to see Hillary as Vice President either. Now no matter what warren does or who the nominee is I believe the Democrats cannot win. The reason they don’t have a real plan for anything. All they want is the Trumpster gone. They don’t have arguments based on issue based plans. They want us all to vote for them simply to get rid of the Trumpster. They think people will vote for them using the same logic people who voted for the Trumpster used and that is we need change. Well unfortunately Biden doesn’t represent change and Sanders is to old to be around to get any of his changes through Congress. So my friends the good news is I and many of my fellow anti Trumpster bloggers will have plenty to write about for the next four years. Be sure to go over to Youtube to checkout my video where you get to look at me while a rant about whatever, they use my name for the channel, which you can subscribe to free. Just put Jeffrey Bruff into their search box and wait to be awed. This fats saying CIAO for Antonia and Flounders ghost, from Medellin, Colombia.

CRISIS AND BULLSHIT

March 1, 2020

Another week of crisis and bull shit. First up the corona virus crisis I have a few problems with this first how come these diseases all seem to come out of China now if I was the worrying type I would think they have some kind of biological warfare thing going on over there. But putting that aside the US does not have a great record when it comes to responding to large domestic problems. They do get around to eventually after all the political bull shit settles. Secondly why is a political issue. I mean aren’t lives more important then who win what. Thirdly there are roughly 7 billion people on the planet and 87,700 cases of coronavirus world wide. Now here come some interesting numbers. In the US from Oct. 1, 2019 till Feb. 22, 2020 there have been 32 million to 45 million cases of flu which have resulted in 14 million to 21 million flu related Doctor visits and 310 thousand to 560 thousand hospitalizations and of those 18 thousand to 46 thousand people have died. Now this is in less than a year and these numbers are only in the US. It would seem if the Stock Market doesn’t drop that those numbers don’t mean anything. To put this in better perspective right now there are 87,700 cases of the coronavirus WORLD WIDE and 2,995 deaths associated with it WORLD WIDE. Do you see where I’ m going with this? I figure either everybody is lying to us or there’s some other Bullshit going on. You 30 years ago none of the information I just wrote about would be available to you and now that it is it would seem nobody is paying attention to it. Now here comes the kicker if I can find this information why aren’t the politicians using it to calm people down and stop the markets from tumbling and economies from going into crisis. i’m not a conspiracy nut nor a genus so I can’t answer that question but it should give everybody who reads this something to think about this week. This is Fats Saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia .

I know there were Caucasus going on in Nevada but I have other political stuff on my mind right now. If I’m right the Senate and house passed a bill to limit the action the Trumpster could take in Iran without congress’s approval. I have no idea if the Trumpster signed or not but the law say he must act on it in 10 days or it becomes law. I wonder if good old Mitch bothered to send it to him at all. I don’t know what happens then. Now if I’m a Democrat I would want Mitch gone, maybe even more than the Trumpster. That old prick has screwed the American public long enough. He also has gotten quite wealthy while doing this. I guess what they say about people in Kentucky is true. A doorknob has a higher IQ. Now the second thing I find very concerning right now is this Corona virus out of China. It seems every year or so some new evil virus comes out of there. A little while ago it was Bird flu then it was SARS now this. The thing that bother s me is the lack of concern of our Government about the virus making it’s way here. I know that the Trumpster has tried to improve testing time for drugs which may or may not be a good thing but he should do something about the prices of the drugs, and while we’re on the subject he should do something about Cancer drugs. I mean why does it seem it far more profitable for companies to find drugs to treat disease then it is to cure them. Well thats it for today, as I have attempted in the past I ‘m going to try and post some during the week. Also I will be posting a video on YOU Tube later today just to see how it goes. This is Fats still missing Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

SMALL HANDS AND A LOT OF ENVY

February 16, 2020

Well the Trumpster was at it again this week yelling and screaming mainly about how unfair life is. I would tell him to grow a pair but that’s not likely. We know he has committed most if not all of the seven deadly sins, but its envy that seems to drive him the most. He can’t understand how a black man or a woman be more liked then he is. He is envious of dictators because they’re people don’t talk back. He says it the respect they command. Well my definition of respect and his differ widely. They don’t talk back or slouch in their chairs because they are afraid of being executed. It would seem that Republicans are suffering the same kind of fear, not that they will lose their lives but their positions in life. You may or may not of seen a Senator on his home grounds, they are treated with respect that they haven’t earned in most cases. They get Golf club memberships to exclusive White clubs, they get the tables at restaurants, they get tickets to any event they want to even if it’s sold out months in advance. These things are called perks if they weren’t elected officials they would be standing in line like the rest of us. They have great medical insurance paid for by voters, they’re driven everywhere, they go on “fact finding trips” at our expense they come in poor and wealthy. I would not call one of them honest but they love the Trumpster or at least he thinks they do. he’s envious of Maduro sitting on all that oil. He can’t understand why everybody just doesn’t believe what he says. He can’t understand science so he’s against it and envious be the one that do believe and understand it are admired by most of the world. Envy will be his ruin we can only ope he doesn’t take the rest of us with him. This is Fats minus Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia

WHAT A WEEK

February 9, 2020

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Holy shit what a week. The Trumpster gets acquitted and then goes and tells more lies in the State of the Union speech. Then he fire our ambassador to the EU because he did the unforgivable of telling the truth at his impeachment hearing. He also fired a Purple Heart wining Lt Col. for doing the same thing and had him escorted by capital police from the building. That was his warning if you tell the truth you’ll become unemployed. I don’t know how they feel but for me taking a chance to get rid of this pig by telling the truth is worth it. I don’t know how you can work for a man who makes you lie to keep your job and then he still might fire you. it’s not like years past where your political buddies would help you get a job as a college President which is basically a no show job. No now your nothing but a traitor to the party and the President. Good luck finding a job. This isn’t the first time a Republican President has held a grudge, Tricky Dick had his enemies list which I’m proud to say I made on a local level. I ‘m sure somewhere my name appears on a list but I think most of my friends will be there too so at least I’ll have company. i’m going to try and get back to doing videos on YOU Tube I ‘ll keep everyone informed in the mean time this is Fats and Flounders friendly ghost saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia

I NEED AN ASPIRIN AND A NAP

February 5, 2020

Well they had a caucus in Iowa on Monday night and it was a fiasco , then Tuesday they had the State of the Union speech. Talk about a week starting off buried in Bullshit. I know this is Wednesday and not Sunday but I felt compelled to say something. The caucus revealed to me that as of this moment I can’t cote for anybody . Now I have my anti Trumpster friends who will scream at me that anyone is better than the Trumpster. While this might be true I ‘ve had my fill of voting for the lesser of two evils. I also think as of right now Jesus Christ couldn’t beat the Trumpster, now thing will probably change some what in the coming months but I ‘m not holding my breath. Now as for the State of the Union Address I never watch those things because I have a low tolerance for bullshit. But in seeing snippets and reading the condensed version this morning I see that I really didn’t miss much. It appears as if the Trumpster and Pelosi decided to pull a couple of childhood stunts and that was that. Today the Trumpster will be acquitted of crimes he did commit but he should (but he won’t) remember acquittal is not exoneration. Look I have a headache from reading all the bullshit and since I don’t drink anymore I’m going to curl up on the be with Antonia (She’s our Labradoodle) and take a nap. This is Fats Along with a ghost and a friend saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

Well the impeachment trial is coming to an end no surprises the Trumpster will be acquitted. He will then become even more unhinged then he already is. All this prove is that this country most change. The two party system doesn’t work anymore. Look at Bernie Sanders, he claims he is an Independent but in order for him to run for President he had to become a Democrat and more or less adopt a lot of their philosophy. Not only that but look at this possible scenario the Trumpster vs Bloomberg, there’s more money between the two them than anybody I know would make in a life time. That mean two rich ass holes running for office that are so far away from my way of life as to never be able to under stand it. This of course will only be possible if the Trumpster decides to allow elections. He could according to the thinking of Alan Dershowitz suspend elections if he thought it was in the countries interest for him to remain in power. I hear all the snickering and guffaws going on as people say never happen. Well in the last 3+ years we’ve seen a lot happen that we didn’t think would or could happen so pull up you socks people and get ready for the impossible. You have a President that openly admires totalitarian leaders and wants to be respected as he thinks they are. He doesn’t realize, or he does and just doesn’t care, that these people rule with fear not respect as we know it. I’m 74 and I never thought I see America destroy itself. I believed we had a form of Government with it’s checks and balances that somebody like the Trumpster would never be able to get elected or do what he has done to our country. He also effects the world with his polices, like Climate change denial. I have two kinds of friends out those that see the danger an tyr do do something about and others that simply say doesn’t affect me so I’ll do nothing. This is really shitty post for any Sunday but even more so on Super Bowl Sunday, so let me end by saying take the 49er’s and the point and the under.

STUPIDITY HAS DOOMED US

January 26, 2020

I’ve read a lot of remarks saying how stupid the democrats are for impeaching the President. I don’t agree I think they’re smart putting it on the record that the President is a crook. I do agree that its stupid to think that they’ll actually get a conviction. I mean this trial was fixed from day 1 thats why Pelosi wasn’t all that excited to open hearings now. I think she wanted to either wait till closer to the election or to after it. The result might have been the same but it might of helped the Democrats win. We all know he’s going to walk and when he dos he’s going to be even more insufferable, if thats at all possible. He will wreck havoc on the country and all those who supported impeachment. The stupid part come from the democrats that actually expect the trial to be fair and impartial. They have witnessed the Republicans being anything but partisan on any issue. I personally think the smart thing to do was to wait and then go after him for treason because you know he will do anything to get reelected. I think if he was to lose the election he would have to be dragged out of the white house (I’ve already volunteered to assist) kicking and screaming and would most likely suffer a breakdown. Now I know that’s all pretty much wishful thinking on my part. How can he be reelected you say. Well people are self centered and stupid. Instead of looking at the whole picture they’ll only look at his support of issues that support their self interests. If the can get abortion banned they’ll vote for him, so what if he does away with Medicare and Social Security and destroys health care. So what if you can’t get fresh water from the tap or breath the air without a mask, there won’t be anymore abortions. Thats what will get him elected thats what got him elected going to states and saying he’ll bring jobs back or he’ll open the coal mines again. He’ll let the oil companies go into protected land and drill. Manufactures will be able to dump their waste in our back yard. The really sad thing is it doesn’t have to happen but he’s not the stupid one the American people are. This is Fats and the ghost of Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

THE TRUTH WHAT’S THAT

January 19, 2020

How many of you know somebody you would call a pathological liar, besides the Trumpster I mean. Well because i’ve been around politics I have known a few. The real good liars remember the lie and don’t tell a different version of it. They are the ones everybody likes because they think they always tell the truth. The Trumpster on the other hand tells a lie to protect himself from the truth. I think he believes everything that come out of his mouth. The problem is he’s not the genius he claims to be and can’t remember what lie he told yesterday so he goes and makes up a new one. The only truth he knows is whatever he tells himself while looking in the mirror. But whats worse is that people believe everything he says even when it just doesn’t make sense. There are lots of psychological term s to both explain him and those that believe them. My favorite is not a medically approved term bu ti think they’re just BAT SHIT CRAZY. I want to know what these people are going to say when theres no health care or Social Security and the jobs they’re waiting for don’t come back. I ‘m 74 years old now and I ‘ve seen a lot one thing I’m very sure of that whatever goes up must come down. That means that the economy is reaching a peak and when it does it will have no where to go. If the Trumpster is there when it happens he will bankrupt every government agency and walk away richer and blame everybody else, because after all he’s a genius and could never be wrong. This is Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

THE TRUTH HAS DIED

January 12, 2020

Lets talk about fake news or as it used to be called misinformation, I guess it could also be called propaganda. It has been used since the beginning of the spoken an written word. The real masters of it are the Vietnamese and North Koreans. It was used to dishearten Americans during both wars. Today we have a President who had made an art form out of fake news back when he was doing business in real estate. Although illegal people use it today to manipulate the stock market. If you remember in High School they would do experiments to see how rumors would spread. You know you line up ten people tell the first one the rumor and then they would repeat ot he next and so on. By the time you got to the end the story had little resemblance to the original. Well the Trumpster will start out with a lie then tell a different version and deny ever saying any of it. The Americans that support him believe it all the politicians that support him agree with it, the two do so for different reasons. The average American because they want to and are either not that smart or too lazy to actually check out what is being said. The politicians do so out of fear of losing their jobs. When I was a senior in high school and worried about going to Viet Nam I would listen to the TV read the News papers (remember them) when I say read the papers I would read a local and then the New York times and one from the mid west. I would read a couple of news magazines like Time or News Week. Then I would read Rolling Stone. I did this so I could feel that what ever decision I made would be made informatively. In todays world people don’t have the papers or are willing to take the time so they pick a TV station or website and whatever appears there they are going to accept as truth. This means that instead of making a well informed decision they can be persuaded to believe FAKE NEWS. The Trumpster uses that term to label any information that is negative towards him. Well I hope somebody reads this and decides to think for the selves then maybe he’ll tell another person and son on and we can save this country.
