What Now?

what-now

More scotch to inhale while I try to make sense of it all-or, at least, make sense from some of it. There are so many people out there, outside the confides of the Church, hopped up on fear, high fructose corn syrup and a pinch of Prozac. They’ve been watching their favorite news channel too long and now, they want to head out the front door with a loaded pistol; the problem is, they aren’t sure which way they want to point the gun….outward, or inward?

Amerika is past the Hundred Day marker, which was displayed out on the internet and news stations like some magical, barrier against evil. “He’ll never make it past the first hundred days” people cried, (more likely, they would type and send on social media) but Trump did, and the power of Juju left the political one hundred theorem dead in the road; so, now what the fuck do you do? Go get him out of office, right?

Those of you who would oppose the Crimson King, know this: there are some sneaky distractions at work to take you off course of your guided mission. One distraction is the pestering reverse chain-of-command. Those who want Donald Trump thrown out of office know if he goes, next to step in as President would be Mike Pence. From there, say, Pence were miraculously covered in damning evidence that took him out under Impeachment. Next in line would be Paul Ryan. After Ryan would be Orin Hatch. The odds of that many men getting tossed out of office are astronomical, and that means one of those bastards would be left in charge-nobody is thrilled about any of those choices…that’s all one distraction.

Then there’s the Fear, the intimidating glut of shock being pumped into our minds on a daily basis. We’re being choked throughout the day with an onslaught of news updates and bizarre non-newsworthy information to numb you into a state of lethargy. Media conglomerates figured out how to continually distract you with hyped up stories or tabloid style images. They leave you wanting more and that means, if there is no shocking revelation for the day, they had better come up with one fast. News became a growing commodity back when it made the jump to 24 hour coverage. That put them constantly on the prowl for news to suck you in. News to make their numbers pull in dollars to keep shareholders happy. The stories these huge media outlets get from Trump are like manna from Heaven, and justice plays backseat to finances…it’s all about the numbers. Trump is a gravy train of daily news…that’s another distraction.

There are small tribes on the internet trying to suck money from lost souls, promising people that by contributing money, they make a difference…somehow. I haven’t figured out that logic yet. You can’t just state something and it becomes so. The Republican National Committee has a Trump gold card they want to issue me for a five dollar donation. The kicker line in the email message they sent was “I know this would look great in your wallet”. The card claims no viable use of any kind, it has no value or use, but it would look great in my wallet. The other side of our American political spectrum is just as bad. End Citizens United, an assertive left wing group, unleashed a barrage of emails on a campaign to solicit funds so they could launch a ‘major ad campaign‘ to try and thwart the Crimson King. Trying to fund a revolution, or supporting freedom and justice via PayPal can get you entangled in a shitstorm of solicitations from various organizations wanting your cash. Knowing who is legitimate can be as tough as figuring out if the homeless guy you’re about to give a dollar to will spend it on food or booze. This is another distraction.

So those three examples are not the only distractions out there, but they are three of the top ones. No solid attempt, to date, has taken place to stop this current President. A few new chinks in the Republican armor are showing; Republican Congressman Al Green (TX) called for Impeachment and murmurs from others, like Justin Amash (Rep. R,  Mich.) show definite signs of possible dissension from the President. Various Government offices are defying orders from Trump. People all over shout how much they loathe the man. It’s a bumpy, wild part of the ride, folks, and I personally believe that for Trump to leave Office, he’ll have to suffer a serious childlike behavior spat and waive himself out of the job-just decide he doesn’t want to play anymore and walk away. That, or a coup. The problem with the latter option is, the coup may not come from angered Americans. It may come as swift as a company merger; you wake up one day and begin to realize that the laws you vote on and the people you elect to represent you are ineffective and do very little to help you or your community…your country. You discover the strings are being pulled by someone else. You recognize a puppet dictator in front of you that doesn’t appear to have the common sense of an ashtray. He leads you. He Lords over you.
Welcome to the Church.
