A CRAZY PRESIDENT, A BUMBLING GOVERNOR AND A DOPEY MAYOR. IS NEW YORK DOOMED? (1/12/21)
The bad news is 2021 has been even worse than 2020.
The good news is that it’s January 2021 and have you noticed it’s staying light out later every day?
The other day at 4:48PM the sky was still sort of light.
But enough talk about stupid, happy stuff. Let’s talk about our “bonkers” president.
You and I are sure he’s out of his mind, but there are roughly 66 million Americans who still think he’s wonderful.
They’re not the problem, but there may be as many as 400,000 to 500,000 scary wackos in that group of 66 million that give me the willies.
My wife, the beautiful Judy Licht, said it best the other day when she said that just as there are dog whistles that only dogs can hear, Donald Trump has something in his voice that only real crazies can hear and follow blindly.
These are the crazies who stormed the Capitol and caused five people to die. One of them, who was guarding the Capitol, was Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who was killed when he was hit on the head by a madman who threw a fire extinguisher.
The irony of it is that Officer Sicknick, who was a good cop, also happened to be a big Trump supporter.
January 6, 2021, in my opinion, was one of the worst days in our history.
Trump started it all with a fiery speech.
If you listen closely, he called on the groups to go to the Capitol and be tough.
If he is ever impeached he will say he never said storm or attack the Capitol – he only said they should go to the Capitol.
The crazies in his audience heard his secret message.
Trump has only 8 days left in office and I think it was wise of Nancy Pelosi to make sure that no one in the military listens to anything he orders.
He’s nuts and I’m absolutely convinced that he’s capable of saying to a shocked America:
“Yes, in a ‘Wag the Dog’ move, I had Iran blasted from the face of the earth. They were laughing at me behind my back and I had to teach them a lesson.”
Or he might say, “Yes, I had the state of Georgia nuked. They stole the 11,000 votes that would have made me president again.”
Or “Yes, I ordered the Air Force to carpet bomb the Inauguration Day proceedings because Joe Biden was not the real president. That’s what they get for stealing the presidency from me.”
So let us keep an eye on Trump for the next 8 days. He’s unarmed and dangerous.
I believe the Secret Service people who are following Trump should be equipped with an extra extra large straitjacket to tie him down when he goes off.
Then comes the question of what to do with Donald Trump.
I say do nothing. He lost and he will disappear from the news.
Try to stop him now and 66 million people will resent and rebel that you took away the man they felt should be our president.
Punishing him for his crazy words will keep him alive forever.
Ignore him and he will be dead in everyone’s eyes.
In a few years the 66 million will not hear as much from him every day or every week or every month, and after a while he will be what he is in the eyes of the rest of the country:
Dead President Walking.
Governor Cuomo and dopey Mayor de Blasio are another story.
If you are over 65 years old and you want to get the Covid-19 vaccine, there’s a good chance that if you die without the vaccine, bumbling Andrew Cuomo killed you.
Am I being too harsh?
What if you’re over 65 and one of the hundreds of thousands of life-saving vaccine doses that had to be thrown away because they were never used could have saved your life.
Cuomo totally fu**ed up the dispensation of the vaccine.
Now that he’s been under pressure to relax protocols because of criticism over the slow pace of inoculations, Cuomo still can’t get it right.
He’s arbitrarily decided that people over 75 years old should get the vaccine, which goes against everything that Dr. Fauci and Pfizer and all the health officials have said about the dangers of dying from Covid-19 for people over 65 years old.
So according to Andrew “I’m the Law” Cuomo, if you’re 65 and older but not yet 75, you’re screwed and dead.
Yes, doctors, nurses and hospital workers should get the vaccine first. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be available to people over 65, first responders, etc. etc.
Just put the people who should get it first in the front of the line and let everyone else get a chance to get it, too.
Do you have any idea about how much money was spent and time was wasted trying to convince the 30% of the people who were against getting a vaccine to change their so-called minds?
I say forget the people who don’t want to take the vaccine and concentrate on the 70% of us who want the shot.
When everyone in the 70% who wants the vaccine has been inoculated and are safe, then concentrate on convincing the 30% dissenters to get the shot, if they’re still alive.
And, naturally, now dopey de Blasio is talking about “diversity.”
I say the vaccine should be color-blind. Anyone who wants it should be able to get it.
Breaking it down by race or religion will once again take time away from getting the vaccine to everyone.
In the 1950s, more than 6 million people got the Salk polio vaccine shot in two weeks, because our local New York officials may have been corrupt, but they weren’t stupid.
While I’m writing this, the sun is shining and I’m listening to President-Elect Biden on the radio talking about the appointments he is making for his new administration.
He sounds frighteningly sane.
A sane president who only lies every once in a while?
We haven’t had that in the last four years.
We’re going to be OK.
