He Haunts Our Dreams

You would never know it, but this used to be a humor blog.

I poked fun at the Christian Right for their politics and prayers, calling them "chippies." Now look around. They're in charge. First thing they did, they sat one on the Supreme Court. Our vice president is a chippie and a scary one.

Scary. The operative word is scary.

I made brutal fun of W and Cheney and all their chicanery. Now, when I see W on t.v., my eyes tear up with nostalgia. I miss that daft little bugger.

It's nearly impossible to poke fun at our current sitting president. I know, I know, the late-night hosts do it, and memes do it ... but for me, this is too scary to be funny. No one sat in a lifeboat and laughed while the Titanic was sinking.

This morning I was at a teacher meeting, and two of my colleagues reported having dreams about Mr. Old and Ugly. So did I, which makes it three.

My dream is the closest I can get to being funny about the sitting president.

I dreamed that he was flirting to me and trying to grab my ... do I even have to elaborate?

So I said to him, "Okay, I'll have sex with you if you give up tweeting."

How's that for a soothing night's sleep? I woke up in dire need of Pepto-Bismol and a long, scalding shower.

The man haunts my dreams. He is a menace to society and a menace to my personal sobriety.

Maybe Cloacina will avert her gaze and allow the plumbing in the White House to back up, overflow, and soak the carpeting.

His Disgustingness has gotten to be beyond hilarious and idiotic, just extremely dangerous. If he's gone the rest are just as bad so a lone assassin wouldn't be enough. Perhaps a small thermonuclear device strategically placed would be the best answer. He has frightened and infuriated enough people here and around the world that it might just happen.

See, this is the advantage of being a lesbian, Anne. I get to dream about his daughter Ivanka. She'll be ditching that pill Jared ANY day now for me.

Debra's comment made me smile. I never thought that W. could look so good. I've dreamed about his orangeness, too. It was scary.

Love,
Janie

Maybe it's because I'm straight, but the thought of Ivanka ... ICK!

I have always been afraid that eventually Trump's crap will be accepted as the norm. We are there.

Even here at the North Pole, I fret daily for the slim taking over my neighbours lives and YES it effects us ALL! Crumpling Democracy is a bit close for comfort, First Brexit, now 🇺🇸! I've been re- reading my history books, and it's all there, ON REPEAT! Why can't humans learn something once and never repeat?
I hope you switch to beautiful dreams You will need your sleep as Education has the largest IDIOT I've ever witnessed at the helm!
Discredit journalism, outlaw learning, cut off communication, close boarders, build walls! So much for quitting smoking!
