Blue Monday ⭐ Open Thread ⭐

by
 

Another weekend come and gone and one day closer to doomsday, AKA election day. Do you remember when election day was a day that held a promise of a better way? Better people? Better ideas and outcomes? A promise of things to come that didn’t make you sick to your stomach?

That is not to say that there are not people who believe that either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will bring those things. There are, sadly some people stupid enough to believe such hooey. I tend not to pay  attention to such frothing-at-the-mouth lunatics that belong in a straightjacket not a voting booth.

Monday is the beginning of a new week with all the promise that could bring. Most people don’t look at Mondays that way do they? Instead they complain and reluctantly head off to another work week. Not enthused. Not happy. And not with a thought of a new beginning. Sad isn’t it?

For those lucky few that actually like their job Mondays may be great. For those of us like me, that no longer belong to the work force, it’s just another day. Or an old song by the Mommas and Poppas.

For most working people every Monday, except when its part of a 3 day Holiday weekend is regarded as Blue Monday – a term for a depressing workday in contrast to the pleasant relaxation of the weekend.

Having Monday off is a great opportunity to hate Tuesday. Unless you think that Tuesday means we’re a day closer to a weekend spent dreading Monday. Confusing isn’t it? All this is for those that are really determined, as many people are, to find something to be miserable about. 

Speaking of something to be miserable about this Monday we face the depressing thought that we are only 2 days away from another Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump debate. Favorite programming, be it ever so trite, will be pre-empted by these two degenerates.

Knowing that one of these two horrible people will soon occupy the White House is enough to depress a decent person 7 days a week.

What can I say about these two that hasn’t already been said? What can I say that I haven’t already said?

Well let’s talk  about their idiot apologists.

I have no use for the site “AlterNet” but they occasionally get something right.

Michelle Bachmann:

Based on absolutely nothing, except possibly the little voices in her head, Michelle Bachmann says no one should believe the lies about Donald Trump and sexual assaults. It’s all a diabolical plot, you see. One which apparently included getting inside Donald Trump’s mouth in 2005 and making him say those nasty things about “grabbing pussy” just because he can.

Ben Carson:

Facepalm emoticon (Hand gesture emoticons) Though it is quite a competitive race, Dr. Ben Carson might be Donald Trump’s most ill-considered surrogate. For one thing, he’s always let it be known that Trump was not really his first choice, endorsing him tepidly at best. Still, Carson, was trotted out this week not once but twice, and did a good job of totally sticking his foot in it both times. The first time, Carson wisely insisted that the kinds of things that Donald Trump said on the bus with Billy Bush about “just starting to kiss women” and “grabbing their pussies” were so normal, in fact, they were mild compared to most of the stuff you hear all the time.

 Betsy McCaughey:

The former lieutenant governor of New York,” Betsy McCaughey crawled out of her hole again this week.

Her important message: Hillary Clinton likes bad words more than Donald Trump.

“I abhor lewd and bawdy language,” the prim Ms. McCaughey told CNN’s Don Lemon. “I don’t listen to rap music because it’s full of the F-word, the P-word, the B-word, the A-word.”

 Newt Gingrich:

Newt Gingrich and Sean Hannity were commiserating about all the nasty revelations about their boy Donald this week. They are in full agreement with their orange leader’s view that there is a vast conspiracy against him and that the media is out to get him.

Newt, being the smarter of the two, laid out the theory in some detail:

“First of all, Barry Castleman wrote a blog this week in which he said this is literally a media coup d’état,” Newt said. “This was an effort by the media, starting last Friday, to replace the chosen nominee and destroy the chosen nominee of one of our two major parties. And it was an all-out effort, virtually a lynching by the news media.”

A lynching Newt? Seriously?

Jon Voight:

Jon Voight, the 77-year-old actor who seems to have taken leave of his senses, is feeling very, very nervous. Voight is scared his boy Trump might lose the election. That’s about the only reality-based thing he is formulating about the election, based on a new video Voight posted on YouTube Thursday.

Voight tweeted that Trump will be “the greatest president” the country has ever seen, who will “save our America.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if sites like AlterNet also wrote about the unhinged lunatics defending Hillary? Don’t hold your breath.

This is an old article from Politico but it’s timely even a year after it was written.

Clinton defenders (and intimates)David Brock, Lanny Davis, Maria Cardona, Jennifer Granholm, James Carville and Karen Finney advanced with absolute certainty that the Clinton email/server story was, in Granholm’s words, “just a nothingburger.”

All in all, all things being as they are, we have a good reason for finding this Monday a Blue Monday. And we can expect no relief from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…

    A Stupid-Simple Way Out Of Trump Vs. Hillary 2016

    This plan only involves 13 states thinking clearly and strategically, and only really needs seven states to actually execute. I am willing to wager there is a freedom- and sanity-minded super PAC out there willing to spend $100,000 in Facebook ads, a basic website, and simple cooperation with the McMullin and Johnson campaigns.

    It isn’t that ridiculous to think we could have a seven- to 13-state coup d’état to save us from this dumpster fire.

      I could donate to this PAC to elect McMullin but definitely not Johnson who appears to have a few screws loose.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Yeah, Johnson seems like a whackadoodle to me, but McMullin seems solid.

      And really – if that is all we need – 7 states – surely we can muster THAT, can’t we?

      Thanks for the great post, Marge!

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Johnson’s VP – Weld was on Glenn Beck today. He sounds great. Beck said Romney had said if Weld was top of the ticket he would endorse. But he hasn’t endorsed Johnson.

        Word is Romney may endorse McMullen.

      Do we actually think either of these fools capable of dealing with foreign affairs competently?

      And the “security” issue I am most concerned with his cyber security. Neither of them is capable there either. We have open borders, no foreign policy to speak of and all our secrets, are open to hacking. What could possibly go wrong?
