George Bush...the compassionate conservative...almost as though he recognized that conservative are devoid of compassion or empathy.

I like the guy, I really do. His only mistake, as I see it, was asking Dick Cheney to find someone to run as VP in his campaign. He could have and should have been remembered as a great president but for that.

He wasn't an evil genius, he wasn't a drooling idiot. He was a man. On September 11, 2001 he was reading to schoolchildren and probably having the time of his life when we were attacked by Saudi Arabian dissidents and their Jihadi friends. What followed was unfortunate.

He did the best he could and I mighta done the same if I was in his shoes and advised by the same people. Like him, I'm not all that bright and easily led astray...We all bought into that bulls*t about WMDs and we saw the blurry maps with an arrow pointed at a dark spot and labeled WMDS, and we all heard kindly old Colin Powell beseech the world and we all panicked. Just as we were meant to panic, and Halliburton profits soared. Fecking fools.

I said a lot of bad things about him during his administration because a lot of bad decisions were made. Decisions which cost thousands of lives, some innocent, some not. Decisions which effected the world economy and cost many people their homes, businesses, and fortunes.

But I've forgiven W because he was just a man pushed into a job that was way above his skill set.

Donald Trump is a different story. Me and Michelle Obama are never going to be his friend. He's not an evil genius, he's merely evil.

That much is pretty much apparent to everyone. I don't need to go much beyond that. He's the third generation patriarch of a white criminal family, a real estate magnate, a slumlord. A millionaire playboy who loved the limelight so much that he became a reality teevee star whose pushy bullying arrogant demeanor made him much loved among the pushy bullying arrogant republicans who watched such drivel on their teevee sets.

Anyway...here we are.

I'm feckin' over it y'know? I'm rooting for Trump to win because that's the quickest way I see to burn this MutherPhuck*r to the ground and start over.

Makes the assumption that we'd recover.

Lotta times a drunk or a drug addict has to hit rock bottom before recovery can begin. We're headed there one way or another.

Some are never able to recover and sometimes recovery isn't what you think it might be.

It's not a valid analogy.

Stop food transportation in a nation of 327,000,000 people for just 12 hours and see what happens.

Food fight? Or just go to Puerto Rico - there's warehouses full of food there.

I hope you don't interpret this as a slam but in my sixty-two years I've learned one thing: Those who really intend to burn it to the ground never utter a word about it. You just wake up to the smell of burning tires and tear gas and the sound of bullhorns and sirens one morning, and you realize "it's on like Donkey Kong."

The ones who utter those phrases the most are the least likely to take up a position at the barricades.

I'm too old and my wife and kids are too vulnerable to be able to afford "Life During Wartime". Had you asked in 1995, I probably would have jumped at the chance if it was "reelect Trump 1996".

You imagine 4 more years of Trump to be the end of the world?
I don't.

Maybe you think Biden is gonna be a great president and in 2024 he'll step down and be replaced by another Democrat and America will be great again. Yay Democrats!

Nothing ever seems to come up roses like that.

Biden is as close to being a Republican as you can get and still be a Democrat. Apparently that's what Democrats want. To be like Republicans. Fine. Ya'll go on without me.

Now, that would be rock bottom wouldn't it? Do you think Mitch McConnell would let the senate vote on getting traffic moving again?
Have you heard of the devastation in the trucking industry?

What we are doing is simply not sustainable. Yet we continue to fight against change.

Eventually the grits is gonna hit the pan and that's gonna be all she wrote. Vote Biden Today! Save the world some other time, or not...no matter...it'll all take care of itself.

If by "rock bottom" you mean "a thousand years of darkness", then yes.
