Tonight, in a totally self-unaware move, failed businessman turned Reality TV Host Donald Trump, stands before a monument to truly great American presidents daring observers to compare his floundering, inept and failing tenure as POTUS to the great men the monument pays homage to.

You can't make this stuff up. No wonder the guy is 14 points behind Joe Biden. Trump is a total dumbfck. Hmm , LOL

Just put my flag up.

Let America be America again.
Let it be the dream it used to be.
Let it be the pioneer on the plain
Seeking a home where he himself is free.


(America never was America to me.)

Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
That any man be crushed by one above.


(It never was America to me.)

O, let my land be a land where Liberty
Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath,
But opportunity is real, and life is free,
Equality is in the air we breathe.


(There's never been equality for me,
Nor freedom in this "homeland of the free.")

Say, who are you that mumbles in the dark?
And who are you that draws your veil across the stars?


I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart,
I am the Negro bearing slavery's scars.
I am the red man driven from the land,
I am the immigrant clutching the hope I seek—
And finding only the same old stupid plan
Of dog eat dog, of mighty crush the weak.

I am the young man, full of strength and hope,
Tangled in that ancient endless chain
Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land!
Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of satisfying need!
Of work the men! Of take the pay!
Of owning everything for one's own greed!

I am the farmer, bondsman to the soil.
I am the worker sold to the machine.
I am the Negro, servant to you all.
I am the people, humble, hungry, mean—
Hungry yet today despite the dream.
Beaten yet today—O, Pioneers!
I am the man who never got ahead,
The poorest worker bartered through the years.

Yet I'm the one who dreamt our basic dream
In the Old World while still a serf of kings,
Who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave, so true,
That even yet its mighty daring sings
In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned
That's made America the land it has become.
O, I'm the man who sailed those early seas
In search of what I meant to be my home—
For I'm the one who left dark Ireland's shore,
And Poland's plain, and England's grassy lea,
And torn from Black Africa's strand I came
To build a "homeland of the free."

The free?

Who said the free? Not me?
Surely not me? The millions on relief today?
The millions shot down when we strike?
The millions who have nothing for our pay?
For all the dreams we've dreamed
And all the songs we've sung
And all the hopes we've held
And all the flags we've hung,
The millions who have nothing for our pay—
Except the dream that's almost dead today.

O, let America be America again—
The land that never has been yet—
And yet must be—the land where every man is free.
The land that's mine—the poor man's, Indian's, Negro's, ME—
Who made America,
Whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain,
Whose hand at the foundry, whose plow in the rain,
Must bring back our mighty dream again.

Sure, call me any ugly name you choose—
The steel of freedom does not stain.
From those who live like leeches on the people's lives,
We must take back our land again,
America!

O, yes,
I say it plain,
America never was America to me,
And yet I swear this oath—
America will be!

Out of the rack and ruin of our gangster death,
The rape and rot of graft, and stealth, and lies,
We, the people, must redeem
The land, the mines, the plants, the rivers.
The mountains and the endless plain—
All, all the stretch of these great green states—
And make America again!

Langston Hughes

Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Trump campaign fundraiser Kimberly Guilfoyle, made headlines with the announcement she tested positive for COVID-19 with hours to go before President Donald Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore. The Trump campaign was quick to note that this occurred before the president arrived in South Dakota and that Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. would be backing out of attending the president’s speech, and that they would not have any contact with him until further notice.

Corona is getting closer and closer to Trump. Imagine Corona is what takes Trump out of circulation and ends America's misery. smile

Why does Fox News deceptively edit-out pictures of Trump and Jeffrey Epstein together? What is Fox News trying to hide?

Hmm

I think it's time to admit that QANON is a 4chan/b prank to reveal the insanity of right-wing nutjobs. Yes: It's done that just fine, but now it's time to stop. People are going to get killed over it. It's just a matter of luck that the armed loon who invaded the pizza parlor looking foe Hillary's child sex slaves didn't kill anybody.

Or the Klamath Falls fiasco started by alt-right tweet that put an armed platoon of townspeople on the street to confront busloads of antifa that were never coming.

Actually, Trump's Executive Order may have helped by getting the FBI to root out more domestic terrorist groups planning attacks or bombings. All so far have been alt-right groups.

More Rightwing losers destroying a Black Lives Matter mural.

It's funny, these loser just cannot bring themselves to say: Black Lives Matter

...at best they can muster: All Lives Matter (which is a total white nationalist trope.)

Hmm
