Vote like your life depends on it

“Let’s say you’re at the airport and you see Mr. Walker and you say, ‘Hey, there’s Herschel Walker, Heisman winner, let’s have him fly the plane.’ You probably wouldn’t say that. You would want to know; does he know how to fly an airplane? Seems to me he is a celebrity who wants to be a politician and we’ve seen how that goes. Or let’s say you go to the hospital, and you say, ‘That Walker guy, he sure could tear it up at Sanford Stadium. Give him a scalpel.’ You wouldn’t say that. You’d ask — at least, I would — ‘Has he done surgery before?’” – Former President Barack Obama

“I wouldn’t let him fly the plane either. But I can promise you, if they see me and Barack Obama standing there, they’d probably pick me to fly the plane. My résumé against his résumé, I’ll put it up any time of the day” – Herschel Walker

In South Carolina, and I am sure in your state too, GOP candidates and the PAC’s that support them are running ads that the Democrats will defund all police departments, bring in busloads of Mexicans to live in your neighborhood, use your tax dollars for turning boys into girls, and girls into boys, fill school library’s with pornographic books, force every living creature including Fluffy your cat to get a COVID vaccine, open up free abortion clinics, and oh lord, take away your AK-47, your M-16 machine gun and QBZ-95 assault rifle. Yes, the Democrats plan on destroying America by taking away your freedoms, hiring more IRS agents, letting the FBI tap your phone, close your church (except for mosques and synagogues), burn your bible, and ban Jesus Christ.

But here is the thing, in all the ads that are running for the GOP the one crucial thing that is missing is this, a plan, that’s because Republicans don’t have one. To paraphrase the marvelous quote from the movie American President, the GOP wants to make you afraid of it, and tell you who’s to blame for it. That’s it. They want to paint a bleak picture for white, conservative, gun loving, racist, Christians, that their flag waving, God worshiping, apple pie eating days are over if the Democrats stay in power. That’s the message plain and simple. No plan for the economy. No plan for the environment. No plan for the cost of health care or prescription drugs. If the Democrats control our government the Jews will be in charge, Muslims will rape your daughters, and Mexicans will steal your job.

I started this post off with a quote from Obama about Georgia senate candidate Herschel Walker and Mr. Walker’s rebuttal. Once upon a time I thought that Ronald Frump was the most ill prepared human being to ever run for public office. Mr. Walker is a very close second. What Frump and Walker have in common is both are unable to tell the truth, both live in an imaginary world, both have severe mental health issues, both are celebrities and both are legends in their own minds.

I would love to see Walker debate Obama about anything, pick a topic. Barack is an intellectual giant and Walker is a mental midget that once upon a time could run fast carrying a loaf of bread. Just to give you a small sampling of Walker’s mental capacity below are his “thoughts” about the Green New Deal:

“So, what we do is we’re going to put, from the ‘Green New Deal,’ millions or billions of dollars cleaning our good air up. So, all of a sudden China and India ain’t putting nothing in there – cleaning that situation up. So, all with that bad air, it’s still there. But since we don’t control the air, our good air decide to float over to China, bad air. So, when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move. So, it moves over to our good air space. And now we’ve got to clean that back up.”

SO, it sounds like he has it all figured out. Right?

Ladies and gentlemen, the bottom line is this, VOTE next to Tuesday. Vote like your life depends on it. Vote like your children and grandchildren’s life depends on it. The only party that wants to take away your rights and freedoms. The only party that wants to control your life are the Republicans and they are okay with using lies, deceit, and violence to do it.

    That is too terrifying to laugh at. One disappointing aspect is that he doesn’t know he is just a token. Every black person should be thoroughly disgusted with the GOP. Many Black people have the actual ability to serve in public office, but they don’t want that.

  6. The fact is, life was good when Donald Trump was President. Low inflation, booming economy, world and domestic peace, $1.75 a gallon for gas, a southern border that was orderly, were the order of the day.

    Brandon changed all of that in less than 2 years. Now criminals rule the streets,
    100, 000 people die each year because of drugs that pour in over an open border, hyperinflation is wrecking the poor and middle classes. Gas prices are spiraling out of control.

    Yes, we must vote like our life depended on it. Because it does.

    • You are appropriately named, your mind is truly silent. Frump rode the coattails of Obama for two years and then like everything he touches, it died due to his ego and ignorance. Brandon won and only Brandon could have undone what Frump Fucked Up. If Frump were still President we would be living in the dark, no food in the stores, or gas in our cars. Dream on white boy.

      • Trump road the coat tails of Hussein O? You’ve got to be kidding! Brandon, Hussein O’s VP rode to power on O’s coattails. Gas was $2.75 under Hussein O. Under President Trump, $1.75. Hussein O was one of the worst presidents in American history. He was repudiated by the people in 2010 who, in 2010 and 2014 stopped him via Red Waves. Hillary, the heir apparent of Hussein O was crushed by Donald Trump who dismantled the Hussein O failure to govern.


        • Yes coattail’s. Didn’t take you long to show your true colors you racist piece of MAGA shit. Ronald Frump couldn’t beat his way out of wet paper bag. Frump has one thing going for him, he is a member of the lucky sperm club. Sadly the world would be a better place if Fred had paid to abort his orange ass but then you would have found some other ignorant assholes dick to suck while you watched Fox News.


          • Ends, Calm down. You are afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Just look at Democrat policies and President Trump policies. Democrat policies cause disaster as everyone can now see with their own eyes (except people like you) . Trump policies cause peace, prosperity and domestic tranquility. Minorities and women are breaking big time for MAGA, Make America Great Again.


          • Make Attorneys Get Attorneys (MAGA) is what Frump has delivered and you my demented single cell creature are paying for it with the nickels and dimes you send to your orange fuhrer.

          • Ends, Americans are paying for Brandon. President Trump was flushed down a DC toilet two years ago, and has since been out in the American hinterland holding rallies.


          • Americans can sleep peacefully knowing that the orange fuck up with his black sharpie will never set foot in the White House again. I look forward to seeing the mentally ill orange clown in a matching orange jumpsuit and his MAGA sheep die a slow death

          • LOL Frump or DeAsstis will never sniff the White House. Your MAGA base is a dying breed. I have seen the crowds at Frump rally’s, fat, white, chilidog eating, rednecks thankfully don’t live long.

            Silence, you wrote: President Trump was flushed down a DC toilet — and that is probably one of your best comments. Only problem was, that load of SH__ managed to crawl back out.

      By all means, keep drinking up that slop.

      Trying to share it with people who see it for the Bull shit it is, only reminds us of how gullible some voters can be. Trump and all his troglodyte sycophants make clear in the public forum what they intend to do. If some folks cannot comprehend what they are being told, then they will continue to be used to their own detriment, like you.

      It is necessary to hear from people like you, although you only have one thing to say, which you receive in your daily feeding. You make us realize the chasm between your speech and reality.

      Happy trolling. That’s all you can do.

      • cagjr, Reality is hyperinflation, rampant crime. social unrest. Brandon just moved the 101st Airborne Division to the Russian border. Americans military advisors are in Ukraine. Brandon has put the world on a course toward World War III.

        I know how much I pay for food, gas and utilities. Brandon is a disaster. That is reality. I am telling you the truth.


        • hyperinflation (thank you Frump for fucking up the perfect economy Obama gave you) , rampant crime (thank you Frump for showing the world that a criminal, rapists’, thief, liar, tax cheat can be elected president). social unrest (thank you Frump for the hate, and vile you spewed, encouraged and continue to encourage).

          • End, you must live in your mother’s basement. Life was good under President Trump. Everyone but you remembers that. Life is horrible under Brandon. We all know that except you. The Democrat Party is finished.


          • “Life was good under President Frump” Your a fucking idiot. Frump KILLED hundreds of thousands of Americans because he couldn’t rub two brain cells together to understand that COVID was going to kick our ass. “You know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat — as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April.” “It’s going to disappear. One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear. And from our shores, we — you know, it could get worse before it gets better. It could maybe go away. We’ll see what happens. Nobody really knows.” “We’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.” He is a fucking idiot you are a fucking idiot.

      Regarding Inflation … the link: shows a recently tabulated list of the inflation rate of 186 countries. The United States is 106th in the list. If the President and his party are responsible for world-wide inflation, the 105 countries with higher inflation must really be angry with the Democrats for destroying the economies of their countries.

      COVID-19 shut down the world for almost 2 years. Now, there’s been an enormous increase in demand. The production and distribution systems have not been able to catch up. (You can’t just flip a switch for production and distribution.)

      Russia’s attack on Ukraine exacerbated the problem by interfering with a major world source of grain. Under the encouragement and pressure of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, OPEC+ recently cut oil production … making the supply problem.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    In addition to being compulsive liars, Mr. Walker and Mr. Trump share trait of a total aversion to or inability to produce rational thought. Perhaps Mr. Walker took too many hits on the head. As for Mr. Trump, was showing the early signs of dementia long before he came down that escalator. The fact that each has enough supporters to fill a rally makes me worry about the mental capabilities of the electorate … especially in Georgia.

    Great article!
