Short Stories for Those Still Playing With a Full Deck


CHAPTER 1: Homophobia Much? You'd think with all that LGBTQ fixation and homophobia-phobia, the Democrats would be tickled pink that an openly gay man, Rick Grenell, now the acting Intelligence Chief, has been promoted to the highest ranks in the Trump administration. Halt that! No you wouldn't - that destroys the core tenet of the Democratic party's platform for American prosperity: homophobia charge against Trump. It's much more face-saving to bash an exceptionally talented gay man than to God-forbid exonerate POTUS from this libeling fraud. Homophobia is only useful when it can be weaponized against the 45th and his supporters. When manifested on the other side, it doesn't count. Liberals are exempt from homophobia. Exactly in the same way they're exempt from thinking.

CHAPTER 2: Mike and Hill went up the hill...

Dick Morris, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, predicts that Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are plotting a "scheme" that would allow Clinton to become the 2020 Democratic nominee. He believes Bloomy will continue to campaign and spend loads of cash to syphon support from Bernie and trigger a brokered convention. Dick thinks it will go to a second ballot at which point crooked Hillary enters the race. The superdelegates will abandon those they've been behind and rally behind the grandma. Dick's been right about many things before. One of his pin-point accurate predictions is the rise of socialism in America before 2020 and Democrats' obsession with extremist leftist politic. Look where we are today.

CHAPTER 3: From Their Lips to God's Ears

If Democrats are right (and Lord knows they have a perfect record), "Russia, Russia, Russia 2.0" could not be more welcome. Putin aiding and abetting Trump's Americans for 4 more years of the strongest economy in history, jobs abound, complete energy efficiency, and most funded and feared military in the, indeed, generous of the Russian Czar. Signing up for more economic sanctions and capital depletion that edges on total bankruptcy of his downright selfless of him. Viva Saint Putin and his liberal hallucinators!

CHAPTER 4: Payback's A Bitch

The same CNN-watching brain surgeons can't wrap their heads around the "Russia Collusion with Bernie" tale. Unable to see the curious coincidence of this Russia 2.0 chronicle with the collective disdain for Bernie as the DNC front runner who can't beat Donald Trump or make socialism the apple of their eye.

More peculiarly, the fishy source of this "new" hysteria, Adam Schiff, who handed Trump the 2020 victory and single-handedly thrust Bernie into the lead with his famous impeachment sideshow, doesn't occur to them in the least. Neither does the fact that payback's a bitch: Bernie's the payback. And of their own making. A boomerang, so-to-speak.

CHAPTER 5: Different Time, Different Place, Same Love Affair

Can't understand why young millennials are in droves behind Bolshevik Bernie? Let's parse.

First, society's progeny, when barely out of mother's bosom, is hardly qualified to color coordinate, let alone contemplate politics. "Youth" and "smart" are not relatable terms. Bernie makes them feel warm and fuzzy, coddled and relevant.

Second, Proletariat ideology has been the pipe dream for generations of youthful ingrates throughout history. There's nothing new about this go-around. Perhaps, only that it's taking place on American soil.

Third, you invoking Venezuela and Soviet Union history lessons won't cause spontaneous combustion of their illusionary fairy tales. Like all realism launched on delusional liberals and idiosyncratic idealists, these evidentiary facts are only received as an attack on their entitlements and abuse of their emotions, causing them to snowflake further to the left.

Fourth, Bernie is their boyfriend, quite literally. He tells them exactly what they want to hear and with feeling. Just think; when was the last time you listened to your mother when she said "Your boyfriend is bad news. He's a fraud and he's lying to you about everything!"...? Would you run towards your point-blank mama or into the ever-expanding arms of your life-is-easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy boyfriend?

Love is blind. So are grandiose promises of free stuff and free love. Save your logic and history lessons for those unafflicted by stupidity of youth and romance with the perfect demagogue.

CHAPTER 6: The Italian Incubator

With coronavirus looming through its oxygen, this is the first time Italy has not looked attractive to anyone. Not even with discounted direct flights to Rome.

CHAPTER 7: Nothing To See Here

The mayor of Aalst, Belgium, and his carnival float participants have once again confirmed their generational clinical hate of the Jews. This time by parading through town gigantic caricatures of orthodox Jewish men, depicted as insects. This act, in itself, is predictably perfunctory, as we have come to expect from Europe. What is difficult to get used to is the supine silence of Europeans in their non-reaction. You know, Holocaust and all...

Aalst inhabitants enjoy this annual hate-fest. The EU has no need to comment on it. The Belgian ruling class looks the other way. The government defers this diabolical event to local governance. And pious European priests, together with their virtuous God-fearing Christian congregants are, of course, mum over this. What would it have to do with them?

Likewise, this black plague has absolutely nothing to do with the Gospel of John taught from pulpits for two thousand years throughout Europe:

..."If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do what Abraham did. As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the works of your own father."

"We are not illegitimate children," they protested. "The only Father we have is God himself."

Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God." (John 8:39-47, NIV)

...nothing to see here. Move along.

CHAPTER 8: Smooch Pooch

I'm totally OK with Presidential candidate Pete Buttegieg making out on stage with his husband in front of millions. If he is into demonstrative sexual-orientation-driven displays to win votes, that's his business. What I'm not ok with is his embryonic age and lack of any accomplishments. Call me a youthaphobe.

CHAPTER 9: Human Stupidity

The fact that a Bolshevik fraud may find his way to the top of the Presidential ticket in 2020 America, America of unprecedented economic successes resulting from free-market opportunities, capitalist incentives, natural competitions, innovations and a testament to one phrase: "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity."

CHAPTER 10: Not Even A Footnote

Yesterday, in three quick salvos, 30 Palestinian rockets were fired onto Israel's towns of Ashkelon and Sderot. Who flinched?

CHAPTER 11: Coronavirus Trivia

Coronavirus began its murderous path in November of 2019. We were only told about it in January.

3-5 Million Wuhan citizens managed to leave the city upon hearing that the city would be put on lockdown, while some already showed signs of the disease. Ponder that.

80% Of Walmart's goods are made in China. 50% Of Amazon sellers are based in China. Chew on that.

Good news for people with food intolerances: your immune system is over-active and hence gives you better protection against viruses like coronavirus. Bring on the stomach ache, baby.

Greatest pandemic in history is not the Black Death: 1918 Influenza (aka the Spanish Flu, originated in Spain) wiped out 50-100 million, five times the military loss of WW1. It depressed life expectancy by 12 years. The Black Death plague, by comparison, killed 25 Million.

SARS cost $30 Billion in just 4 months. $200 Billion - $1 Trillion is the price tag expectancy for Coronavirus.

Perspective: roughly 300,000-600,000 people die of the flu every year, globally. About 80,000 are infected and 2700 are now dead of Coronavirus. (If we believe China...)

Flu pandemics will forever remain an annual feature of the rhythm of human life. Nevertheless, I'm staying away from Italy, China and South Korea. Alas, Iran tragically slid off the top of my list, too.

CHAPTER 12: In Summary

Hoping against hope, Israel will come up with the coronavirus antidote and label it "Made in Occupied West Bank with blood of Palestinian children". I'll immediately join a BDS movement to ensure Israel doesn't profit from Aalst, Jimmy Carter, Bernie Sanders, The Squad, the EU, the UN, Iran, Gaza & Ramallah, House of Representatives Democratic majority, the Arab List, American and European academia, CNN/MSNBC/BBC, Barack Obama, Canadian pipeline blockers, New York Times editors, Greta's pushers, and the entire Democratic Party cabal. Oh, and last but not least, Justin Trudeau.
