The Greatest Hoax Ever Played

I, Donald – legitimate candidate or willing actor for puppeteer Karl Rove?

Not since the movie “The Sting,” has such an elaborate, complex, genius scheme of misdirection been played out on the silver screen or in real life. And the movie reference is appropriate because, in fact, the 2016 election process is so much more reminiscent of a reality television show than the United States electoral process, it’s absolutely uncanny.

On the one hand, we have the self-proclaimed reality television king himself, Donald Trump, posing as a Republican, running his mouth, spouting preposterous ideas that no other candidate in history could possibly get away with, and only gaining more popularity for every crass comment. On the other side of the aisle, Hillary Clinton, the tried and true presumed heir to the throne is suddenly being usurped by a self-acknowledged pie-in-the-sky socialist with lovely thoughts that are completely unfounded in reality. Has the whole country suddenly gone nuts?

When Karl Rove’s ugly mug surfaced on Fox News this morning, I had an epiphany. What if Karl Rove and Donald Trump are working together? Let’s take a step backward.

It’s 2013 and Karl Rove and Donald Trump are trading insults via Twitter about how even with the horrendously vulgar mega-fortunes being foisted upon him by power moguls like Trump and his friends, Karl Rove couldn’t get his lily white Mormon boy elected over a black “Muslim” with a “questionable” birth certificate. Oh the frustration.

Flirting with a bid for the White House as far back as 1988, Donald Trump has dipped his toe in the presidential water on a number of occasions, most notably in a half-hearted attempt to gain the Republication nomination in 2012. He dropped out in favor of his new reality television venture, “The Apprentice,” but not before he had garnered an impressive number of followers. And that certainly didn’t go unnoticed by the likes of Karl Rove.

Now, Donald Trump could never be elected to the White House. Even with a large following of reality-television watching, marginally literate trailer-dwellers, he’s just not electable. No self-respecting American would truly want someone like Donald Trump representing our beautiful nation to the world at large. If you thought George W. Bush was embarrassing — well, we’ve all heard what kind of insulting things the Donald has to say about other cultures.

But after 2012 (if not before), the Republican Party was hopelessly divided. Disillusioned and disenfranchised younger members split off and created the Tea Party, whose radical candidates were also too bizarre to present a viable candidate for the oval office. With no hope of uniting the party under one candidate, and Hillary a shoe-in to follow in Barack Obama’s footsteps, Karl Rove knew he had to do something drastic. He had to pull a sting, and it had to be a big one.

What if he could put up a reality television star who could gain enough of a following to lull the Democrats into a false sense of security? With a party so contentious, most of whom had already surrendered to the idea that Hillary would no doubt win the 2016 election, it wasn’t difficult to rally the numbers around a “defiance” candidate, one who spoke his mind and expressed opinions many secretly harbored in their own dark hearts.

In December 12, 2015, Huffington Post Politics Social Media Editor Ashley Alman wrote: “But in a matchup against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the general election, Rove wrote, Trump would get ‘creamed.’ He called Trump a ‘dream candidate’ for the Democratic Party.”

Truer words were never spoken, and how ironic if they should be mouthed by the very engineer of this great hoax.  And so now the Democratic Party has let down their guard and allowed themselves to do a little dreaming of their own. Against a legitimate Republican Party candidate, Bernie Sanders would be unelectable. Spouting rainbow rhetoric about universal healthcare and an even economic playing field for all, there’s not a snowball’s chance in Congress that a self-acknowledged Socialist like Sanders could possibly be elected — unless he was running against Donald Trump.

And now, on the eve of the very critical Iowa caucus, Trump drops out of a critical Republican debate, giving the real candidates the opportunity to hash out the nomination amongst themselves. Is it the action of a petulant, egomaniacal corporate bully, or is he really just playing out the last act in his reality television drama? He could then blame his resulting decline in popularity as a simple miscalculation. After all, his three previous bankruptcies would seem to evince that the Donald is not infallible.

Is this scenario even possible? Could two purported enemies the likes of Karl Rove and Donald Trump actually devise such an elaborate, evil scheme, let alone work together? Is either one of them intelligent enough? You decide.

New Header photos please?

November 9, 2014

Hey Peewee,
Please change our Header? I really can’t stand to see those pics of us. We look like over the hill stoned hippees. Find some fun photos What about the old ones I sent you?
Lis

Boy Lissa, you sure know how to annihilate a post. I just got through fixing those jumbled pix and text.

I’ll get busy on a new header soon, but I’ve been working long hours to pay the rent. It’s not Hawaii, but in Hawaii I was forced to sign up for food stamps – hoping to avoid that here…

Meanwhile, it’s off to the kid’s school for a Veteran’s Day parade. I get to give a speech to his class. (Don’t join the army, kids!) — just kidding, sort of.

Bummer about the dog fines. Nice neighbors you got there…

A Rush to Closure

March 25, 2014

Call me a conspiracy theorist Lissa, but I still can’t help but wonder why NO ONE has followed up on any other possibilities as to the whereabouts of the missing plane. Although they claimed to be searching 23 countries or some jibberish, it seems like the whole focus has been on the Indian Ocean right from the get go. It’s as though the plane vanished by magic – magic by misdirection, that is.

Obviously without clear details as to what kind of signals were received when, there’s no way for anyone not privy to the real facts of the case to come to any sort of conclusion about the plane’s whereabouts beyond the one they’ve served up on a platter, just a little too quickly, in my opinion.

Even if they did have some sort of catastrophic event that took out the radios (how come other pilots heard cabin noises over the frequency?) and the transponder, and they programmed in a heading to take them back towards the airport or one nearby with a longer runway before they succumbed, what made the airplane turn AGAIN and head towards Australia?

I think the plane is out there, in the hands of terrorists who are plotting to do nefarious things with it while the world frets about some mysterious vanishing debris seen on a grainy satellite photograph.

I hope the authorities know more than they’re letting on, and they’re just pretending to go along with this ridiculous story.

Yeah Peewee,
The facts just don’t add up to the Indian Ocean theory. I don’t buy it either.
I’ve had my hands full this week. Rescued and adopted out the most precious puppy ever! Soliciting donations and sponsors for the animal Shelter golf tournament. In and out of vet with poor Bradshaw. Saved the neighbors dogs from a alligator in the backyard. Bought Big new skincare equipment. Learned it. It’s only Tues. Phew

Where’s OUR Winter?

February 25, 2014

Peewee,
Sure wish we’d get a break from temps in the 80’s around here. I’ve been toughing it out with no air conditioning to get a break from the high electric bill. I’ve gotten it down from $350 to $150 a month. I’ve unplugged all unused appliances. I turn off lights and fans, we have 12 overhead fans here, cook in the toaster oven instead of the big one and turn off my computer and use my smart phone instead and it pays.

But I for one would sure like to have a cold snap. How are you doing here in Florida with your estranged husband? Is it hot there? Do you have a pool? Are you having any fun? My cranky bastard (as HE likes to be called) comes home tonight for a visit. I’ll be in lock down with the warden.
Lis

We’re having weird weather here in Central Florida, too Lissa. Right after we got here it was really cold, and some of the new pants I bought for the Kid were already too small so we had to hit WalMart for some new ones. As soon as we did that, a super warm front came through, and temps were up in the 80s with high humidity, and the Kid switched to shorts and T-shirts.

So naturally, now all his shorts were too small. Back to WalMart for more shorts for the Kid and some warm weather clothes for me, who stupidly packed nothing but jeans and sweaters. Then it got cold again.

Now it’s actually kind of pleasant. The Kid is still wearing pants to school, with a T-shirt and sometimes a light jacket. Still, it’s quite mild for winter in these parts. Feels more like spring. If it’s this warm now, I wonder what SUMMER is going to be like…
