The Devil is walking down this winding country road when he runs into a handbasket
Devil: Hey, what are you doing here?
Handbasket: Just hanging out
Devil: You want to catch a Netflix movie with me
Devil: What do you have in the there
Handbasket: The USA
Devil: I see
Handbasket: Where are we going to watch the movie at?
Devil: My place
Hell in a handbasket……..
To go to hell in a handbasket means to go to one’s doom, to deteriorate quickly, to proceed on a course to disaster. The phrase go to hell in a handbasket is an American phrase which came into general use during the American Civil War, though its popularity has spread into other countries. Even though, America still leads all other nations on somehow trying to bring the adage to fruition.
In 2008, subprime mortgages almost destroyed the economy and took down the country because banks were greedy, unregulated and as the old saying goes, full of piss and vinegar. They allowed predatory lending practices knowing that the people that they were lending to wouldn’t be able to pay the mortgage once those variable rates that were pushed onto them rose. Half way through, the banks realized that if enough of these mortgages were handed out, the bank itself wouldn’t be solvent because their would be too many defaults and not enough revenue coming in, so they started to sell these shitty mortgages to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, government backed mortgage companies. They unloaded these mortgages on the tax payer and drank Cristal and Dom to their success. One of these banks, Bank of America, even gave their execs over $40 million as a bonus for their ingenuity on screwing over the little guy. Not one of these people went to jail for knowingly selling merchandise that was guaranteed to fail. Your welcome by the way.
Now you have wallstreetbets, an unorganized group of people, going after hedge funds, some who are associated with these banks, Merrill Lynch and Balboa are both associated with Bank of America, by screwing up their shorts, or their ability to short a stock, or bet on it’s demise. People betting on the misery of other peoples suffering, what seems to have become the American way, are finally losing by having a group of self proclaimed retards investing in the stocks and keeping them afloat and giving them a fighting chance. Now, these misery loving sadists are becoming upset because they, the people, took the whips out of their hands and started to beat them with it. Well cry me a fucking river of gamestop stocks. Whatever are you going to do now that you have to spread the wealth. Now that you are simple multi millionaires and not billionaires.
Why should Gamestop go the way of Blockbuster because big business found a way to stream the sales of games to their PS whateverthefuck the number is now and their Xbox and Switch.? Everyone complains how people are less social yet are crying that a brick and mortar store is trying to stay afloat. America is becoming Hermitville and these streaming devices are not making it any better. We should encourage people to be going out and buying, to get off their couches, to go to the movie theaters and brick and mortar shops, even if just for the exercise. So Gamestop doesn’t want to lose everything and declare chapter 7 or is it 8, huh, so they don’t want to go bankrupt and they don’t want to let these fucking vampires to make money off of their misery. Well good for them. And good for wallstreetbets, I got their back. I say fuck all the assholes that love the misery of others, not literally, metaphorically, of course.
That being said, wallstreetbets has to be careful they don’t become what they hate. GME is going to be obsolete because the business model isn’t built for today. GameStop has to change with the times and go to a business model that can succeed. They should go all VR and if their on hand cash allows it, take over an upstart or up and coming VR company and build their own VR games and equipment that is exclusive to them. At this point, people that are following blindly might lose everything because sheep always get led to the slaughter, they never get led to the mansion. So, while I get it, sticking to the man, is always fun, you have to make sure you don’t find yourself leading the sheep over the cliff, and by that I mean leading these people to lose all their money because it doesn’t seem like GME wants to change their business and they are just selling their stocks to make money before declaring bankruptcy.
On January 6th 2021, something horrible happened, I lost my keys. It’s alright, I appreciate the concern, I ended finding them later. I’m kidding, there was a riot at the Capitol that saw several hundred people act like zombies going after their first meal, in this case law makers. The reason why is because these zombiefied momo’s thought that they had their rights taken away from them when the law makers certified now President Biden as the new or as we say in boxing when the champ is dethroned, “and the new” President of these not so United States of America Joseph “the Quiet Man” Biden Jr., all boxers have nicknames and that was a good movie. What made these people think that the election was BS, propaganda on the scale of Gerbels,…. wait, I’m being told it’s written Goebbels. That sounds nothing like Gerbels…. wait, I’m being told that’s the baby food guy and Goebbels was Hitler’s number 2 guy. Ahhh, now it makes sense, I was wondering why the nazi guy was allowed to sell us baby food. Putting that aside, Goebbels was Hitler’s propaganda guy, in charge of spreading fabrications to the public along with his tasty Apple Strawberry Banana baby food. Wait, I’m being told that it’s Gerber that sells baby food. Alright, this guy with his many aliases, was not a good person. His lies pretty much brain washed masses of people into believing untruths and he also ran the State media which they called news. They were allowed to call this news because, well, Grobel was in charge of the whole damn thing. Well, we are no longer in nazi Germany, not that we were before, I don’t think, but to have a show be labeled news, I believe should come with a standard, like facts, preferably, and not baby food bullshit, which I don’t think is one of the flavors but who knows back then when Gorebels was in charge.
I think, to prevent any further misunderstandings, and when I say misunderstandings I mean attempted coups and assassinations of our elected leaders,, any outlet, no matter how small, that labels themselves news, must in fact present the truth and if they do not do so, they must immediately amend their story to present the truth or face hefty fines and decertification of their name so they are not allowed to call themselves news but Gossip Girls. I think that’s fair. It would prevent any further hostilities and people similar to Goebbels… I was just told I finally got the name right, anymore Gerbels propaganda from corrupting the minds of zombies. They’re people too you know or they were. This should be a law. Seriously, propaganda is deteriorating our society and it is causing rifts in a democracy that Communist countries that have State run media can take advantage of. We need to be stern or maybe, in the not distant future, Goebbels will win election and convince us that elections are bullshit and he will be in charge forever.
I mean, there should be no reason for me to hear two different stories from two different news organizations if there is just one story. How can the facts differ so much? Was there or wasn’t there election fraud? If all news agencies say the same thing then either we should have all stormed the Capitol or none of us should have. This law should also incorporate law makers when it comes to facts, not opinions. If you want to unite the country you must first start reading the same book. It should be illegal, actually, I think it already is, to mislead the public into believing something that you have no conclusive proof or evidence of, so much as to create a danger that results in bodily harm. And no one should be exempt from this law, especially people with the loudest Bull(shit) horns.

UPDATE: Since the raid on the Capitol, the country of Myanmar has successfully carried out a coup by saying that there was “election fraud”. There is no way to know for sure, but it comes on the heels of our election debacle, fiasco, catastrophe, blunder, embarrassment… pick an adjective…. which now seems that their coup might have been influenced by the greatest country on Earth acting like kindergarteners when the teacher leaves and forgets to put the cookies away. Chastising other countries on their election process is going to be a whole lot more difficult now and, as an added bonus, you unwittingly gave them, Venezuela, Myanmar and any country that rigs elections, fodder to throw our way.
In the 1980’s the CIA, as it has been discovered, ran illegal drug operations to support the Contras against the Sadinistas. The Nicaraguan Revolution (Spanish: Revolución Nicaragüense or Revolución Popular Sandinista) encompassed the rising opposition to the Somoza dictatorship in the 1960s and 1970s, the violent campaign led by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) to oust the dictatorship in 1978–79, the subsequent efforts of the FSLN to govern Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990, and the Contra War, which was waged between the FSLN-led government of Nicaragua and the United States-backed Contras from 1981–1990. The revolution marked a significant period in the history of Nicaragua and revealed the country as one of the major proxy war battlegrounds of the Cold War, attracting much international attention.
The CIA backed the drug cartels, one being Pablo Escobar and some making the Fortune 500 list, in exchange for money that was used to buy guns for the Contras. This was done in order to be able to fund the Contras without having to go through Congress at the time. The Cartels became extremely powerful, so much that it controlled the governments in the countries that they were in. Now, the people, the regular people, who make caravans and try to come to America, away from these drug war torn countries that were essentially helped by some of our agencies, try and escape the gruesome life that they are forced to live, by coming here and requesting asylum, which we mostly deny. These people are hard working peaceful people that don’t want to be part of a drug cartel and they don’t want their kids mixed up in these criminal organizations, yet we see them as parasites, mongrels and low life wet backs who don’t deserve entry. We don’t even keep them together when they get here, mass separations, or give them proper health care, mass deaths while in custody.
Does that seem right to you. To form lawless gangs and then abandon the people that these lawless gangs end up destroying. Did you think that these people, whom found extremely lucrative organizations, were just going to abandon their money making ways because the war in Nicaragua was over? I’m not saying to just let the caravan of people in and live for free off of our dime but a plan, a Marshal Plan, should be in order. We should at least fix what we destroyed. So are you surprised that they are migrating? I am not, I’m surprised that more aren’t leaving. Now, the U.S. can’t come right out and say that it is their fault, and if I were President I definitely would not do that but I would take some responsibility, in private, and find a way…. We fixed Europe when they started the war, we gave Germany money to rebuild and they assassinated 6 million Jewish people, are you telling me that you can’t do anything for the Latin countries when we gave rise to the power of the Cartels? A Marshal Plan, reroute some businesses to central and South America, wipe out what you brought in, the drug cartels, and help the good people. We are, after all, the greatest country on the planet. And even we weren’t the greatest country on Earth, the profits from our illicit drug distribution and sales must have been amazing, use some of them.
One word… perspective. The way you see the immigration problem and the way they do. You broke it now you should find a way to fix it. At least try. Believe it or not, the asylum seekers actually have a good case under the Geneva Convention to seek asylum. That’s because the administration responsible for this mishap also named the follow up operation to get rid of the Cartels as a war or the “war on drugs”.
The Geneva Convention relative to Protection of Civilian Persons in time of War or the fourth Geneva Convention or GCIV along with parts of the Hague Convention can be used to seek relief for asylum seekers if they can show that their conditions or their sufferings come directly from the actions of this country and its subsequent “war” on drugs. I’m not sure if this has ever been tried but it can’t hurt. It’s a novel approach to the law.

Some of the first paragraph was taken from Wikipedia, you know, the smart part. Basically all of it but the first sentence.
There a lot of things right with this country but there are some things wrong. The biggest problem, as I see it, is there is no entrance exam to hold public office. I mean you have to take entrance exams for college, you have to take entrance exams to go into the military (ASVAB), there’s even entrance exams for some kindergarten schools… but there is no entrance exam to make decisions on the fate of the economy or what we should do if there are incursions in other countries or whatever rates high priority emergencies.
Elections are popularity contests and lets be honest here, we all like the dumbass that falls down drunk, pisses on him/herself and sharts and lets everyone know that he/she did. We like them because, who hasn’t sharted, right? And they have the grace to pull of a shart so lets vote them in. Well, I would rather vote in the person who has the brains to say I have never sharted. Our adversaries, the Chinas and the Russias don’t mind us voting in dumbasses because they are easily manipulated. They can have their egos stroked and they become lap dogs for our adversaries. They don’t have the wherewithal to know the difference between behavior that is harmful to the country from normal behavior.
So, why don’t we have a minimal educational standard for people that are going to run or ruin this country? Why is it that people that adhere to conspiracy theories are allowed to walk the hallow halls of the Congress, or is it hollow halls now that they were looted, btw, I didn’t hear anyone say if you loot we shoot when that happened, all I heard is we love you. That’s for a different day though. Our elected officials should not be the pandemic spreaders of conspiracies but the vaccine to such ridiculousness. And if they do mention such conspiracies, being that they are lawmakers, they should be held to a higher standard and be forced to produce evidentiary material to back their craziness up or be forced to relinquish their position. People are crazy because some of our lawmakers are crazy… and because they forget to put on the aluminum foil hats… hahahaha… damn aliens or is it non resident earth beings now, who the fuck knows. Well, I know one thing, I’m not smart enough to be a lawmaker but I’m plenty smarter than any dumbass that wears a gun to Congress or impeaches a President on the first day because the other guy lost and yes, I had a few and I did just shart… Therefore disqualifying myself and thank god, from every holding public office. I bid you adieu, I have to take a shower.

The presumptive ability to self pardon oneself is an interesting debate. It has never been done before and it would be amazing to see how it would play out in courts. With one Capitol Police Officer dead, the riots in Capitol Hill have taken an ominous turn. It now has the label of a murder pending a Federal investigation. The Capitol Police Officer, may he rest in peace and my deepest sorrows goes out to his family, who died after having an altercation with rioters, and probably due to some prior health problems, most likely had a cardio infarction, a heart attack, after the stress of the situation. The culprits, mostly, I’m guessing all, political supporters of the current President who falsely believe that the election was stolen from them, it wasn’t, acted hastily and without care for human life. The problem though lies in what happened prior to the riots. Their was a speech given where several speech makers used rhetoric that specifically mentioned violence, a pre-cursor to the riots that might be seen as marching orders to create havoc. I listened to the speeches and while some people did make worrisome remarks, including a sitting congressman with ambitions that now will never be realized, I did not hear anything from the current President that called for violence, admittedly I did not hear the full speech but clips played by the media. I know that the left have interpreted some of his remarks that way but that is more hopeful wishing than reality. We have to keep things real and not make alternate realities just for your own purposes. I know that the current President is not very popular among the people, he is a hate or love him type of personality but when it comes to the rule of law (what a joke) that has no bearing on charges. I am one that feels that a President, current or former, should only be indicted if he commits treason or uses the power of his office, while he is in office, for monetary gain. I’m not saying that murder or rape should be excused but I’m just presuming that someone we elected into office wouldn’t commit those heinous crimes. Nevertheless, self pardoning has been mentioned. Personally I think, given everything I know about how the government works, it should be fine. People in the government have done much worse and they pardon themselves all the time but given the intense scrutiny of being President, the world will be watching and common sense should tell you that self pardoning is a ridiculous notion. My advice, if it were me, (it would never be me) I would resign three days prior to the President – elect takes his oath and have my second in command issue those pardons. Of course, this would mean that VP Pence could only serve one more term as President if he ever decided to run for the office but chances are that, since he is forever linked to President Trump and these rioters created such chaos, he would not make it past the primaries. While VP Pence is actually a likable person and stood his ground on these decertification fiascos by not going along with it, plays well for him, he is ultimately tied to one of the most disastrous Presidency’s in history. The pandemic, the insurrection riot, racial riots, the devaluation of the American Dollar, will always be fodder for his opponents. But once again, self-pardon, nope, resign and have your number two pardon you, yep.
I would like to add that thank God it wasn’t Hispanic People, there might have been a couple, in the Capitol Hill “insurrections” or you would have seen a wall built in less than thirty minutes. Hahaha…. it would have been labeled the Freedom Wall. You have to have a little sense of humor with it or you would just go nuts.
You know what’s funny, President Trump could come back as a Senator for the the Sunshine State. Crazier things have happened.
Another thing I would like to mention is that I hope that this never happens again. Politicians words make a difference in the feeble minded. They believe in what these people say like it’s religion. They will literally overtake the Capitol building and commit felonies if told to because they are too dumb to know better. I would never vote for a narcissistic demagogue who is hell bent on feeding his/her ego. Those people that objected to the certification of President – elect Biden’s verification were appealing to the mass’s confused message of despair and profiting off of it while sowing discord for their personal benefit. That is the exact definition of demagogue. Look it up. Your job is to tell the truth above all else and you are failing your constituents.
When I was a kid, while driving with my mom and dad, to go visit relatives or friends, I would imagine that I was controlling a remote control car behind us to pass the time. I would imagine that the the deflectors on the highway had microchips and that they would help guide my RC car from other traffic. I would imagine it taking turns and passing other cars and making it go at high speeds. Those microchips in the highway, that were powered by solar panels that were attached to the median, or maybe the medians were made of solar panels on the top, with wires that led to a battery pack underneath the concrete highway would make that technology self sufficient. It’s funny because we now have those autonomous cars with brain chips that could read microchips that if they were on the highway, could probably prevent accidents and guide those autonomous cars safely. I think it would be a great idea, if feasible, to probably do something like that. You could probably even team up with some high tech companies that are willing to come up with the tech to offset the costs and they would in turn lease there tech to the big car companies for a certain amount of time until the tech became public domain. This would save the government, more to the point, the tax payers money and boost the economy. I guess I’m saying that it’s time for infrastructure to catch up with the modern world.
