Closing Thought–13Mar17

Drain The Swamp!

I know all the Trumpy supporters are thrilled that he is “draining the swamp” in DC as he promised in his campaign rhetoric…..my problem is…..who represents this “swamp”?

Lobbyists?  Bureaucrats? Pundits?  Who are these mystical political players?

My problem with all this manure is that Trump is calling for many “experts” in the different fields to resign and he is replacing them with the very people that make up the “swamp”……

A Trump campaign aide who argues that Democrats committed “ethnic cleansing” in a plot to “liquidate” the white working class. A former reality show contestant whose study of societal collapse inspired him to invent a bow-and-arrow-cum-survivalist multi-tool. A pair of healthcare industry lobbyists. A lobbyist for defense contractors. An “evangelist” and lobbyist for Palantir, the Silicon Valley company with close ties to intelligence agencies. And a New Hampshire Trump supporter who has only recently graduated from high school.

These are some of the people the Trump administration has hired for positions across the federal government, according to documents received by ProPublica through public-records requests.

So my dear alt-Right brethren……Trump lied!

I am told that “He Won” and to get over it…..I shall do just that when the idiots admit that they were played like cheap drums.

He is not draining the swamp he is just adding new breed of alligator to the mud.

The slogans were amazing….the actions are as dim as a flickering night light.

Day has drawn to an end for me…..I will be off and will return tomorrow with more shiny objects for you to chase.  chuq

  1. “The Swamp” is composed of each and every one of the Obama Era holdouts whose agenda was to fundamentally transform The United States into a form of Marxist/Socialist/Leninist utopia… an effor that failed spectacularly — thanks to some well-placed Republican obstruction.

    1. chuq theorem….most of those hold outs were from Bush and his hold outs were from Clinton…on and on…nothing has failed just replaced with other dolts….nothing new….as some say…moving on…

  2. Those advocating draining that swamp need to be careful. One day, you might find yourself included as a swamp-dweller. Categories have a habit of changing, and not always in a good way.

  3. SIGH…. Swamp draining, considered as a concept, is a typical human non-sequitor approach to problem solving; in the real world, draining a swamp never actually does anyone any good. A swamp is much like a jungle, or any other area on Earth where Life abounds, having spent many centuries, millennia, in fact, achieving a perfectly acceptable balance. It is human arrogance, and our nasty habit of doing things simply because we can, without ever examining whether or not we should do them, that causes us to think draining it is a viable solution. The whole issue of climate change is a reflection of how well that habit has served us, to wit: not at all. It is much the same as our habit of declaring war on things to resolve problems; it is the wrong approach, from the get-go….It is not only NOT thinking outside the box, it actually reinforces the box’s limitations….

    New swamp denizens are not the resolution; the resolution is learning to live in the swamp without trying to alter its character…. i.e., to stop denying reality, which is, politicians lie, and have no interest in serving anyone’s interests but their own….

    gigoid, the dubious, tired, but still game…

      1. Yep…..dumb as a stump….which is mean for stumps are a lot smarter than 50% of those trying to justify politics….LOl chuq

      2. I always liked Twain’s comment on how, if men and cats were somehow able to mate, the result would degrade/demean the cat, & improve the human…

        Onward….

        .

      3. LOL Nice one…”Life has become a reproduction…it is not the real thing”…cannot remember who said it….chuq
