I Hope the Election Doesn’t Come Down to a Choice Between Old Fool Biden or Old Felon Trump

Andrew Stein, a long-time supporter of Donald Trump, has turned his back on him, and now he is backing Nicky Haley. In an editorial for the Wall Street Journal, he wrote that he is “worried the election would come down to a choice between an old felon and an old fool.”

If the election is once again between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, our democracy is irrevocably broken. How in the world can two successive presidential elections come down to a choice between the same two men, who are manifestly unfit to be president of the world’s greatest democracy?

“An old felon and an old fool”, perfectly describes these two old geezers who don’t have any business being anywhere near the vicinity of the White House.

If Trump wins the election, it’s very likely he will be an old felon by inauguration day, considering he faces 91 felony counts for trying to subvert democracy, falsifying business records and risking national security secrets.

Dementia has rendered Biden an old fool who is incapable of stringing two sentences together or finding his way off a stage after delivering an incoherent speech.  I imagine that by inauguration day 2025 he will be unable to walk without a walker and he won’t be able to deliver his inauguration speech without soiling his diapers.

Who am I voting for the old fool or the old felon? First of all, Biden at 81 and Trump at 77 are both suffering from severe cognitive decline. Biden is too old to be president, and he’s an old fool, but at least he’s a good person. Mr. Magoo Biden may accidentally press the red button and start World War III, but Trump may deliberately press the nuclear button because he’s such an evil sociopath.

I hope and pray Biden will change his mind and not run for reelection, so I won’t have to vote for the old fool over the old felon.

Idiot Lauren Boebert Misspells Main Town in her ‘Thoughts and Prayers’

“Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) made an unforced error Wednesday night when she sent out a ‘thoughts and prayers’ tweet to the victims of the mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine.

Boebert’s post was short, reading, ‘Sending prayers to Lewistown, Maine tonight. Know that the entire country is praying for you.’”

Yahoo News

Evangelicals’ default response to any natural disaster, terrorist atrocity or mass killing is to offer “thoughts and prayers”. After expressing this trite sentiment, they focus their attention to their everyday religious duties of demonizing the LGBT community, ostracizing immigrants and fluffing their messiah, Donald Trump.

The thoughts and prayers of the average evangelical are as efficacious as farts and belches, and they only serve to darken the mood of a community stricken with a senseless tragedy.

But the thoughts and prayers of Boebert, who owned a restaurant called “Shooters Grill” that fetishized guns and featured gun toting servers, are especially repugnant.

The dimwit couldn’t even spell correctly the name of the town beset with tragedy, it’s Lewiston not Lewistown.

I doubt the Almighty reads Twitter, but if He did, I’m sure he’s thinking: Bitch, please. Just shut the fuck up!

Joe Biden Must be Replaced as the 2024 Democratic Presidential Nominee by Any Means Necessary

About a year out from the 2024 election President Joe Biden is a dead man walking. Most voters have serious reservations that the physically frail and cognitively challenged octogenarian will last another year, let alone have the energy to mount a successful reelection campaign.

Biden’s approval ratings are in the gutter, the economy is in serious decline, and the world is on the verge of the apocalypse. Americans aren’t going to reelect a commander-in-chief whose finger is too shaky to press the nuclear button if God forbid the near arises.

In head-to-head polls against the twice-impeached, four-times indicted, failed insurrectionist former President Donald Trump, Biden is in a dead heat at best. Yet Biden who resembles the cartoon character Mr. Magoo come to life is oblivious to reality and is convinced he’s going to win.

The befuddled Biden doesn’t realize that the election isn’t going to be a referendum on the former president Trump, it’s going to be a referendum on his administration.

Trump’s supporters don’t care that he is an amoral sociopath with delusions of grandeur, they will vote for their Dear Leader even if he announces that he’s the Antichrist. And voters who aren’t members of the Trump cult will consider the sorry state of the economy, Biden’s advanced age, the sky-high crime rate and the immigration crisis when considering the election.

Trump will probably beat Biden even if he’s convicted and sentenced to prison. Joe Biden must be replaced as the Democratic presidential nominee, by any means necessary.

House Republicans in a Circle Jerk While the World is on Fire

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy was unceremoniously ousted by a handful of MAGA congressmen not for the crime of being corrupt or incompetent, but because he committed the unpardonable sin of reaching a bipartisan deal to avoid a government shutdown, which would have devasted our fragile economy.

It was the first time that the House of Representatives had voted out its Speaker. In the weeks since Republicans, who resemble the Keystone Kops on crack, have been unable to elect a new Speaker, paralyzing the House. Left to their own devices Republican congresspersons would spend all their time in a circle jerk, pleasuring themselves before a portrait of their messiah, Donald Trump, instead of legislating and doing the job they were elected to perform.

American government is a dumpster fire; indeed, the whole world is on fire, and we need the House open for business so they can address Russia’s war on Ukraine and the Israel/Hamas war before the world ends with a big bang.

In this critical juncture in world history, a stumbling and bumbling, incoherent and incomprehensible, President Joe Biden traveled to Israel to assert his role as Leader of the Free World. Yeah, right.

I’m not waiting for the Rapture to rapture me out of this evil and crazy world, but I am pleading with Scotty to beam me the hell out of here. There’s got to be intelligent life somewhere out there.

Violence Perpetuated by Both Hamas and Israel Must End

Evangelicals are besotted with the nation of Israel; they view the Jewish state through the prism of Jehovah’s promise to Abraham:

“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Evangelicals consider it an article of faith to defend Israel unreservedly, and they consider anyone who criticizes Israel emissaries of Satan.

Evangelicals rallied support for Israel after Hamas terrorists invaded the border area and indiscriminately killed, raped, kidnapped and tortured innocent civilians.

Mainline protestant denominations expressed more nuanced statements calling for an end to violence perpetuated by both Hamas and Israel.

My thinking is more in line with the mainline protestant denominations. I unequivocally condemn the barbaric attack on innocent Israeli civilians by sadistic Islamic terrorists, but from a 30,000 feet perspective I have as much sympathy for the Palestine population as I do for the Israeli victims of Islamic rage.

It’s not antisemitic or unchristian to criticize the racist policies of the corrupt Netanyahu and his coalition government riddled with racists and homophobes.

The modern state of Israel isn’t a paradise where Jewish citizens and Israeli Arabs live in perfect harmony. Israel is a racist an apartheid state where Palestinians living in Israel face systemic racism and Palestinians living in the West Bank are treated like prisoners. Gaza is the world’s largest open-air prison, Israel tightly controls the flow of goods and people in and out of enclave, and maintains an air and naval blockade on the territory.

Christians should pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but they most also pray for freedom for the Palestinians. Yes, Hamas must be destroyed, but the apartheid system in Israel must also be destroyed.

The endless cycle of violence will only end when Palestinians achieve autonomy via a two-state solution or another way.

Robert DeNiro: Trump is a Punk, a Dog, A Pig, a Con

When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016 Robert DeNiro warned us: “He’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. A con. A bullshit artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

America didn’t heed DeNiro’s warning and the psychopath won and presided over four years of chaos, corruption, criminality and crookedness. Two impeachments, four indictments, and a failed coup later and we still can’t get rid of the steaming pile of human shit, and currently he is well on his way to being coronated the Republican nominee for president in 2024.

On Wednesday DeNiro warned us about Trump once again:

“This guy tries to be a gangster, but he can’t quite pull it off … he’s a wannabe tough guy with no morals or ethics. No sense of right or wrong. No regard for anyone but himself – not the people he was supposed to lead and protect, not the people he does business with, not the people who follow him, blindly and loyally, not even the people who consider themselves his friends. He has contempt for all of them.”

When speaking of Trump, we must echo DeNiro’s prophetic style, and forego nuance and subtlety and denounce the moral degenerate in the strongest way possible.

Keep in mind that Trump is a petty, vindictive and vicious tyrant who engages in pro hominem attacks against anyone with the temerity to criticize his unlawful behavior, so don’t hesitate to give him a taste of his own medicine.

Trump is a modern-day Hitler, and nobody uses diplomatic language to describe the German madman, we rightly condemn him as a genocidal monster. We shouldn’t mince words in explaining why electing Trump would be a disaster.

Trump is physically repulsive: his hair looks like cotton candy that was soaked in urine, his mouth resembles a sphincter, his piercing raccoon eyes are terrifying, his orange complexion is disturbing, his double chin is grotesque, his tiny hands are alarming, and his mushroom-shaped tiny pecker is enough to turn every woman into a lesbian.

He is morally reprehensible: he’s a sociopath who’s incapable of empathy, but unlike most sociopaths he doesn’t even pretend to care about anyone but himself. He’s a pathological liar who lies as a matter of course to advance his selfish agenda.

He’s intellectually inferior: to quote DeNiro, “he’s blatantly stupid.” Stupid is as stupid does, and he is constantly saying stupid things, and doing stupid stuff. He is the epitome and embodiment of stupidity.

DeNiro has a long and distinguished career playing mobsters and criminals, if anyone can recognize a moral degenerate it’s the award-wining thespian. For the love of God heed his words, and vote for whoever runs against him in the general election.

Don’t Expect Trump’s Base to Ever Realize He’s a Steaming Pile of Dung

The default condition of most people is to distrust politicians, preachers, used car salespersons and prostitutes; these less than noble professions employ deceit as a way of doing business.

We aren’t fazed when a politician or a minister is caught in a scandal, especially if it involves a sex worker.

When a candidate fails to keep their campaign promises when they win, I’m not heartbroken because I realize they are inherently duplicitous.

You wouldn’t expect this cynical generation to idolize any politician. Even an eloquent, handsome and youthful politician like John F. Kennedy wouldn’t be treated like a rock star. In today’s world with ubiquitous surveillance cameras, multitudes of cable news outlets and scores of podcasts stars and social media reporters he wouldn’t be able to keep his affairs with movie stars and mob dolls hidden.

So why the fuck is Donald Truck who’s uglier than a toad, more stupid than a rock and as inarticulate as a punch-drunk boxer treated like a god by his supporters? After all, we’re talking about a twice-impeached, quadruple indicted, pathological liar who has been found guilty of sexual assault in a civil trial.

Trump enjoys cult-like popularity because his base of white evangelical supporters and QAnon whack jobs are a cult, and he is their messiah and they regard every nonsensical utterance that emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth as the Gospel truth.

Every time Trump makes a statement I take it with a grain of salt, and believe him as much as when a used car salesman tells me that the hooptie he sold me is in cherry condition or when a hooker tells me that she’s never seen a bigger dong than mine.

But Trump’s followers are enthralled with their Dear Leader, and they believe that he is incapable of lying. If a tape of Trump having sex with an underage girl was leaked, his sycophants would believe him if he said she was an angel who came down from heaven to minister to his earthly needs.

Bottom line: don’t expect Trump’s base to realize that their god is a steaming pile of human shit!

Israel, Hamas and American White Evangelicals

The white Evangelical movement in America supports the nation of Israel blindly and without any reservations. They castigate anyone who condemns the racists policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as anti-God liberals and communists.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, is a deeply flawed politician who has been indicted for breach of trust and accepting bribes. In his new term as prime minister, he formed a coalition government with virulent racists and homophobes like Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich.

White evangelicals compare the racist and corrupt Netanyahu to King David, just like they compare the racist and corrupt Donald Trump to Jesus Christ.

These religious fundamentalists view everything through the prism of evangelical eschatology. They believe the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948 was a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and the establishment of Jewish settlements in the West Bank God’s will.

Evangelicals salivated over the brutal attack of Hamas on Israeli military and civilians, because they view it as a sign of the End Times. They are secretly hoping that the Hamas atrocity will trigger Iran, Syria and Lebanon to attack Israel and usher in the Apocalypse.

I unequivocally condemn the Hamas terrorists’ attack on civilians; the rape and murder of civilians and taking them as hostages are war crimes and sins against humanity. The sins of the apartheid state of Israel in no way, shape or form can justify these atrocities.

Americans can condemn the barbaric actions of Hamas and at the same time condemn the way Israel inhumanely treats Palestinians as second-class citizens.

I long for the end of terrorism by Hamas as much as I long for an end to the oppression of the Palestinians at the hands of the Jewish state.

Is it Appropriate to Drink Coffee During a Church Service?

“A post by Pastor John Piper of Minnesota on Saturday, Sept. 30, has sparked a heated debate about the appropriateness of drinking coffee during Sunday church services.

‘Can we reassess whether Sunday coffee-sipping in the sanctuary fits?’ asked Piper on X, formerly known as Twitter.”


“Americans’ membership in houses of worship continued to decline last year, dropping below 50% for the first time in Gallup’s eight-decade trend. In 2020, 47% of Americans said they belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque, down from 50% in 2018 and 70% in 1999.”


The decline in evangelical church membership can be attributed in large part to evangelicals’ obsession with conspiracy theories and avoidance of the crucial issues of climate change, racism and the rights of sexual and religious minorities. Is it any wonder that Gen Zers are deserting the churches of their parents and grandparents?

Evangelicals fail to address the existential threats of our generation; they’d rather opine as to the appropriateness of drinking coffee during Sunday church services.

Let me put in my two cents worth, and declare that drinking coffee during a church service is appropriate and indeed necessary, for the following reasons:

Too many pastors are enamored with the sound of their own voices and they drone on and on, oblivious to the fact that many congregants are dozing off. A strong cup of joe is vital for keeping awake during a long church service.

Pastors not only take an offering during every church service, but they also plead for donations for various causes: church building fund, missionary support … It’s a nice when a church gives you something, even if it’s just a cup of Java, instead of constantly begging for support.

Most people associate drinking coffee with pleasant activities like enjoying a delicious breakfast or taking a coffee break during a tedious work day. Sipping coffee during a pastor’s sermon might improve peoples attitude toward attending a church service.

Bottom line: it’s always a good thing to drink coffee, anytime and anywhere.

Evangelicals Believe Emergency Alert Will Trigger Zombie Apocalypse

QAnon otherwise known as MAGA, or the white evangelical movement discovers a new conspiracy theory every time Trump farts or belches.  

White evangelicals are just as likely to cite a fringe web site as quote a Bible verse out of context to support their batshit crazy conspiracy theories.

The crazier the conspiracy theory the more they are convinced it’s true. We shouldn’t be surprised at the gullibility and stupidity of these wingnuts, after all they believe in the Rapture, a controversial theological belief that Jesus will snatch true believers and meet with them in the air, before He unleashes Armageddon.

FEMA and Federal Communications Commission are conducting tests of the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts on Oct. 4 at 2:20pm ET. The message directed to all consumer cell phones will consist of a simple message:

 “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

Normal citizens will at the most be annoyed by the emergency alert, after all we are bombarded with dozens of alerts every year, be they Amber Alerts, tornado, flash flood or hurricane alerts.

MAGA nuts are convinced that the emergency alert will trigger the Zombie Apocalypse. This tweet by Gina Shirah is representative of the millions of posts warning us to take actions to protect ourselves, such as covering our phones with tin foil:

“Turn off your cell phones on October 4th. The EBS is going to test the system using 5G. This will activate the Marburg virus in people who have been vaccinated. This will sadly turn some of them into zombies.”

Millions of evangelicals wearing MAGA red hats aren’t going to meet the Lord in the air, and zombies aren’t going to wreak havoc on October the 4th. I’ve had seven COVID shots and on October 4th I plan on having my cell phone next to be ear at 2:20.

Republicans Consider Trump More of a ‘Person of Faith’ than Biden, Pence or Any Other Republican Candidate

“Former Vice President Mike Pence is a born-again, evangelical Christian who roots his political ideology in his faith and frequently quotes the Bible on the campaign trail. President Joe Biden is, by all accounts, a devout Catholic and attends mass virtually every week.

But according to a recent poll, more Republicans view former President Donald Trump as a ‘person of faith’ than they do Biden, Pence or any other 2024 GOP presidential hopeful.”

Spectrum News

Allow me to preface my essay be unequivocally stating that being a “person of faith” doesn’t make a candidate a better person. I don’t care if a candidate is nominally religious, devoutly religious or a nonbeliever, that is not a criteria that I use in deciding who’s the best person for the office.

The evangelical Republican base places a high premium on a candidate’s allegiance to Jesus Christ and the Bible. Mike Pence wears his faith on his sleeve, every sentence he utters include a noun, a verb and an allusion to Jesus. How an evangelical can believe that the serial sexual predator, pathological liar and sociopath Donald Trump, who’s never claimed to be an evangelical, is more of a person of faith than Pence is beyond my understanding.

Joe Biden may not be an evangelical, but he’s a devout Catholic who attends mass every week, and always carries rosary beads with him. Surely, it should be apparent to even the most dim-witted MAGA true believer that Biden is more religious than Trump.

Trump embraces white evangelicals without embracing evangelical Christianity strictly out of expediency, he realizes they are the most loyal part of his base, and will stand by him come hell or high water.

Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders denies he’s an atheist, but he probably is one, he states that he “isn’t actively involved in organized religion.” The non-religious Sanders has more integrity in his pinkie finger than a sanctimonious politician like Mike Pence has in his whole body. I would vote for him over a devout Catholic like Biden, or an evangelical zealot like Mike Pence.

Evangelicals who make a mockery of their faith deserve an amoral buffoon like Donald Trump, may they rot in hell.
