I have an idea for the Trump sign: Just change the punctuation a little, from "Trump, 2020, no more bullshit." to "Trump, 2020, no more. Bullshit!"

Glennie, thanks for your comments. Glad you were "with me" last November, at least in spirit!

Jackie, foreign powers--notably Putin--have sure played DT like a beachball...

Although I'll have to restrain myself from opening my window and making an exit out of it should I wake up on November 4th to learn that DT has won, it IS so good and comforting to know that I won't be alone in feeling utterly abject. I'll be thinking of you, my good ladies and friends. I just hope we don't wake up to that.....maybe this time will be different.....

So Trump would leave the country if he loses?

I hope the door hits him on the way out!


My father would have loved Joe Biden. He, like Joe, stammered. Even though for the most part he'd gained control of it he never was a talker. A great listener, yes, but not much of a talker. He would have thought Joe's overcoming his stammering to rise to great heights remarkable--even amazing.

But Donald Trump would have made him shake his head and say under his breath,

"Son of a bitch."

Here is some satire from our local paper.

Laughing through the Apocalypse

The pressure's enormous. After all, my biography says I'm a humorist and satirist. Can you imagine trying to out-satirize 2020? It's like trying to out-sin Satan.

As for humor, well, absurdity, I've got.

That and Dramamine.

For starters, Typhoid Donny's ranting and raving in the White House, steroids in one hand, the nuclear football in the other, while the rest of America channels their inner Alfred E.

Neuman: "What — me worry?"

Last week alone, Trump dropped an F-bomb on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" while threatening Iran, cratered the market by slamming the door on COVID stimulus (he reversed course), demanded the arrest of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, did a spot-on Evita impersonation on the White House balcony — don't cry for me pulmonary edema — and called Kamala Harris "a monster," apparently for demanding equal time from Vice Robot Mike Pence during their debate. I'm not saying Pence is an automaton but I've seen more evidence of a pulse onstage at Chuck E. Cheese.

Like his boss, Pence refused to pledge a peaceful transfer of power should his ticket lose.

Then, when the Good Lord Above in all his righteous anger decided to send a plague down upon Pence, all he could manage was one measly fly.

What does that tell you about 2020? God is fresh out of pestilence! I half expect to see God at an intersection holding a sign: "Will smite for locusts."

Far be it from me to give God advice, but I think he brought out the murder hornets way too early. What's he going to do for a finale? He may have to borrow the flying monkeys from Hillary.

It gets worse. The FBI has arrested members of a right-wing extremist militia (or as the president calls them, "my constituency") plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and liberate Michigan. Meanwhile, back in free North Dakota where much of the population has inexplicably taken to licking each other's doorknobs, Gov.

Doug Burgum was seen waving his arms and pleading, "Take me! Take me!"

In South Dakota, (new motto: "COVID: We're on it!") the state recorded 5,000 active hoax cases last week, as compared to ND Smart's 4,000. Not only are ICU's filling up, COVID-19 itself has been hospitalized with exhaustion.

Buried among these headlines was the revelation that in 2017 the president paid less in taxes than your pizza delivery guy and that he's $400 million in debt — but surely not to the Russians or the Saudis.

He also profited $73 million from foreign interests in his first two years in office. Domestically, he's made millions more on hotel properties from businesses and governments hoping to curry favor. But move along folks. Nothing to see here. The man's just draining the swamp.

Even NDSU made the headlines.

Not only have NFL players continued to protest the wrong way by kneeling during the national anthem, members of the once-sainted Bison did the same thing before their game against Central Arkansas. Many Caucasian fans (who are not the least bit racist and even have a black friend) were so outraged they vowed to boycott the team for as long as they can hold their breath.

"You've got to stand for what's white — err, I mean right," one former fan explained, "After all, this is America."

Test result today: NEGATIVE!!! (But still gonna drop my ballot in the official Chi. Bd. of Elections box inside the Armory--our ward's early voting site--rather than risk my life standing in line to vote in person. With judicial retention questions, it's a really long ballot--and casting it onscreen in-person would require too much time indoors with other people who may not have been careful). Gonna fill it out tonight after consulting InjusticeWatch.org's list of recommended and not-recommended judges.

Why do Trumpies support him despite all his awful and stupid remarks & actions? It's not because they're uneducated or stupid. And why do they want to "crush" us? "REVENGE AGAINST THE NERDS." They love him because he pisses us off, and they want to "own the libs." Why? Resentment. They feel we teachers' pets and good students got further ahead in life than did they, and when we grew up we told them what and what not to do. They may inwardly be appalled by him, but to paraphrase Melania confiding to her assistant, "they know whom they married" and are fine with him achieving their goals of revenge & racism.
