To Impeach or Not to Impeach, That is the Question

To impeach or not to impeach, that is the question
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of Trump's outrageous fortune,
Or take a vote against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them.  To die––
To sleep no more....


Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
Until the recorded votes of the 2020 election are taken;
And all his yesterdays have lighted this fool
The way to dusty defeat. 

 Out, out brief candle!
45 is but a walking shadow, a poor player
Who struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. His term is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing.

On The Future Whitening of the Statue of Liberty: God Forbid!

Let's call a spade a spade:  Donald Trump's slogan, "Make America Great Again," had nothing whatsoever to do with the phrase, "Make America White Again."  And the use of the word "spade" here has nothing whatsoever to do with black people, or even brown-skinned people for that matter.  To think otherwise would be unpatriotic and blasphemous.  It would be Fake News.

Likewise,  Donald Trump's desire to cover the Statue of Liberty with a coat of white paint has nothing whatsoever to do with his immigration policy.  It is Fake News that he only wants white people to emigrate to the United States.   It is simply a matter of Location. Location. Location.  White people come from Europe.  Therefore, Liberty Island is the best place for them to enter the United States.  Black people, and brown-skinned people for that matter, come from South America and Central America.  Therefore, the Border Wall is the best place for those kind of people to try to enter the United States.

If black people, and brown-skinned people for that matter, can safely scale the fifty-foot Border Wall without getting shredded to bits by the barbed wire on top of it, then they can apply for one of the fifty asylum slots available for southern border immigrants this year.  Next year  it will be twenty-five!  And that is not Fake News!

Now that the 2020 election is over, we can honestly call "a spade a spade,"  so to speak.  And we will!  So from here on in,  countries in South America and Central America shall be called what they are: shit-hole countries.  Beginning this Sunday, black people, and brown-skinned people for that matter, will be rounded up by ICE and deported back to where they came from: shit-hole countries.  Then and only then can we "Keep America Great White Again."

And as our ever-faithful evangelicals say, "God Bless America!"
