It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Plenty has occurred since the
last column, most of it bad (courtesy of our soon-to-be ex “president).” This
criminal clown has raised the label of “Lame Duck” to new heights. Like
everything this wastrel has done in his life, he has left a train wreck in his
wake. I suppose he will now retire to his silly ranch, or the two million dollar
home he recently purchased (probably got a neat deal considering the current
housing market). I guess he can commute between the two kennels to get to work
on his legacy, plans for his presidential library (a few crayons and a cigar box
might fit the bill), and enjoy a life of delusion, selfishness and ease while
others deal with the consequences of his screw-ups.
No, I am not finished with the
moron. ‘I’ll NEVER be finished with him. I will continue to advocate for decency
by calling him every name in the book until he is dragged before an
international tribunal and sentenced to be hanged for crimes against humanity. I
sincerely hope he is slapped in handcuffs the minute he leaves office, even
though the chances of that are practically nonexistent.
But enough of him…
We have elected a brand-new
president. He is a Democrat, reputedly a liberal, and can communicate in the
English language. We also have a new vice-president of similar stripe. Our new
secretary of state will be the very person who opposed him so tenaciously in the
primaries; a fact that speaks well for his judgment, as well as his tolerance of
criticism and differing views. I fully believe that a successful leader has to
actively seek opposition. He or she should never surround themselves with
yes-men and a staff that spends their days wondering what their boss would like
to hear rather than what he needs to hear.
I fervently hope we have elected
such an executive. He’s going to have his hands full.
Did I mention that he is
I have never been prouder than I
am now of my country. At long last, we have put an end to a shameful legacy that
has haunted our history since the first Negro slave was put to work in our
fields. The suffering, waste, death, and injustice that bigotry always engenders
may now have been to some sort of purpose. The circle may now be
I hope so.
To the thousands buried in
graves at Gettysburg and countless other battlefields, and their
commander-in-chief entombed at Springfield Illinois, rest in peace.
