Just When You Thought 2020 Couldn’t Get any Weirder…

Just When You Thought 2020 Couldn’t Get any Weirder… by David Haggith for The Great Recession

The Vice President was upstaged by a tiny, little black fly that forced the VP debate to center on the one topic #pinkeyepence most wanted to avoid — his handling of the Covidcrisis. Chatter across the nation about the debate became all about Pence’s fly and his pink eye and … again … about how many times the Republican side can rudely interrupt when it’s not their time or turn to talk.

The dastardly duo just can’t seem to get it that playing the Interrupter-in-Chief or, now, the Mansplainer-in-Chief just annoys thinking people who actually want to hear each side explain itself.

Before pointing out the innumerable opportunities for humor this weirdest and wackiest of debates brought about due to details outside the debaters’ control, let me say “thank you” to patrons here who suffered through a difficult article about Trump, but point out, at the same time, recent articles that were just as strongly against those who have been unfair to Trump because what I care about is truth (and sometimes humor), not political parties, in the least, which I think cause more damage than good on both sides by constantly putting party over country:

‘Clueless’ Former FBI Director James Comey Admits FBI’s Trump-Russia Probe Was a Ball of Bungled Confusion

NEW YORK TIMES PROVES IT IS FAKE NEWS: Shreds Years of Its Own Reporting on Trump Tax Fraud and Russiagate

I will continuing hitting fake news when it is wrongly against President Trump as I did at the start of Trump’s presidency with an article about the fake news coverage of Trump’s inauguration. I’ll also continue hitting the establishment that illegally attempted a soft coup against Trump because nothing is more dangerous to a democracy than a deep state that is out of control. And I’ll continue pounding on the Federal Reserve for its “feed the rich” welfare programs of fake economic recovery, and I’ll do all I can to beat up greedy banksters along our surreal path through the remainder of 2020, too.

But, along the way, one thing I will not do is protect your favorite politician, regardless of which side you are on. I realize we are in a time where everyone has lost their sense of humor about their own side, but last night’s debate was just too priceless to resist. So, please pass gas if you can’t take it, and wait for the next article to come out, which will move away from Trump and Company … if they’ll let me … and on to criticizing the foibles of the other side or the buffoonery of banksters.

The debate debacle

While I don’t like her liberal politics, I have to award the BLUE “winner of the debate” ribbon to Kamala Harris on her always courteous handling of #pinkeyeflyguy: (And, for the record, no I did not ever vote for Obama or Hillary Clinton or even Bill Clinton, so don’t even go there with lame counter-criticism. I did not vote for Trump either, but I did vote for Reagan twice and GWB once.)

Knave Dave — vigilante against the false profits of The Great Recession Too many criminal CEOs still fill their porky bellies with the biggest taxpayer bailouts in the history of the world. These bailouts protect their reputations, saving them from the fall they should have taken. They continue to receive bonuses for having done an unparalleled job of destroying their companies! Many of their companies wouldn’t be making any profit at all if not for the interest they’re making off of nearly free government bailouts. Just this week Hewlett-Packard fired its CEO, but is still paying him a bonus of millions of dollars in exchange for a year of corporate wandering in the wilderness. Netflix’s CEO cost his company hundreds of thousands of subscribers and had to reverse his decision. Bank of America’s CEO launched a debit-card fee plan that was immediately stupid in the eyes of many, but greed an arrogance led him to think he could pass it by his customers, and he lost customers in droves and had to reverse his decision, as did the many major banks that followed him. Since these corporate leaders do things most of us can immediately see as being dumb, why are they rewarded with salaries a thousand times greater than many of us make?
