Tuesday Wasn’t Our Good News Day…

Super Tuesday: As Trump keeps winning, Republican elites can only wince

Bombastic New York mogul says he can be ‘unifier’ after capturing 7 more states

Haven’t had much to say, lately..the  world is a sad mean  bitter place these  days with little to  cheer for or even simply observe without a  wave of depression washing over… Made the mistake of  joining  Twitter, only to be beaten half to death  by  negativity and cruelty, by the  frisson of the overly rich and  infamous who seemingly have nothing  better to do with all their money than  blow it on  trifles  while trashing each other over inanities…and the  Yanks, oh the Yanks, just keep cheering,  their  depressing sucking up of the results of this  celeb-worship and rightwing fractiousness..it is  a toxic soup of  misery being slurped  by the ignorant …

It is ‘Murica, these days, dumbed down by a corrupt education system that has turned  poverty-stricken Yanks into mostly drooling serfs for the benefit of the corporatist agenda..

I should know, I was born there, fortunate to get out when I did…

Please understand that  I  was fortunate in that I  was sort of  lower middle class, and my  high school happened to be  in a rich bitch catchment  so of course even the public high school was well supplied  with  supplies, liberal teachers and  plenty of  what were called ‘college prep’ courses to take if you were so inclined, and showed promise in certain fields..mine were English and  the  Arts…and in my own ignorance,  thought that this was the norm…

When I came to  Canada in  the  early  ’70’s, never knew that I was  in fact  one of the privileged few.  My real education began here,  and I found out that the  US likes to keep its children as  uninformed as possible  about the rest of the  world. lest their not so subtle nationalistic propaganda not find  eager  blank brains to soak it up and thereby, obey …

Trump  has exploited this  ignorance  perfectly, we have to give him credit..it’s hard to imagine  anyone doing a better job of crowd control than the  Donald..he has  accomplished so much  that it is breathtaking in many respects, and reminds me that  Hitler  himself had the same sort of  crowd to  manipulate, and was in fact elected democratically..at first…

The difference  in the States is that the  Republic  Establishment,  protesting in vain  against the  excesses of Trump, has no  plans to support  him..and therein lies  the only possible salvation for the country..if/when  another  person is chosen as the Republican  nominee,  Trump will run independently, splitting the  vote, thereby allowing  Hillary  up the  dirty middle…please make it so…

I can see, in my best sort of  fantasies,  just as it happened in Canada recently,  those on  the moderate Right holding their noses and voting  for  Clinton as  the only way to  stop  Trump..Trudeau benefited from that same  nose holding against the thought of  another  Harper term here…

Fingers crossed, folks, because if  that doesn’t happen, wore  betide us  all… and really,  Hillary,  like  Trudeau, is  less than we would wish, but  more than  we fear might happen if..
