WineDrunk SideWalk: Shipwrecked in Trumpland Week Two Round Up


Well, “president” sherbet baby-dick’s second full week as tyrant-in-chief was full of surprises… least for people who have completely not paid attention to a word he’s said since he slithered down the escalator at the Dark Tower back in June 2015 (ah, remember those halcyon days, folks?) We’ve come a long, long way since then…toward pushing the world’s biggest democracy into an authoritarian state, one run by a cartoon reality tv star.

I guess on a positive note it was good to witness how quickly people came to action against sherbet-baby dick’s Muslim ban…I know we’re not supposed to call it a ban…but if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck…kind of how easily it is to call Stephen K. Bannon a white supremacist. Anyway it was pretty heartening to see people spontaneously protest at airports throughout the country/world, and the amount of action all week as well…..we need to keep this shit up. I know sherbet baby-dick is a workaholic…but fuck him. You want to keep your democracy or whatever this neoliberal experiment we’ve got going is…work for it….be as tireless as that fat Cheeto.

And let’s talk about Stephen K. Bannon. He’s sort of moved from that quiet, ominous voice in the room to the villain who does one of those sarcastic claps while leaning against the wall at the end of a film…shit, it was Bannon the whole time! Then again, if you’ve been paying attention I’m not telling you something you don’t know…kind of like how telling you that Kellyanne Conway is a pathological liar is telling you something that you already should know. She’s also an asshole. But is “president” sherbet baby-dick really just Bannon’s puppet? It’s hard to gauge. Sherbet baby-dick was going off about Muslims long before he pulled Stevie-boy out of whatever Breitbart-sanctions meth clinic he was in on that particular day. And I really don’t think pissing off the Australian P.M. and telling the Mexican President (in jest of course) that was sending in troops was all Stevie-boy’s as well. BUT Bannon apparently loves chaos and anarchy as much as he loves white nationalism, so all of this could be his doing
…..i’ll have to see where he stands on Crocodile Dundee films to be certain about the whole Australian thing though. Maybe sherbet baby-dick could arrange a beer sit down with some Fosters ala Obama. Of course, sherbet baby-dick doesn’t drink and Bannon is obviously on Meth….fuck it. Let’s just sanction Iran!

If anyone needs me I’ll be out getting a falafel and watching the new Ashgar Farhadi film.
It does look like we have ourselves a SCOTUS nominee though…albeit an illegitimate one picked by an illegitimate fake-ass leader. Who’s ready to play ball with Mitch “Merrick Garland Who?” McConnell! I don’t know much about Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuc h except that he basically thinks that dead people’s bodies have more rights than women. Other than that looks like every other white dude I’ve ever seen in my life …but according to former VP Joe Biden, he called Gorsuch, “the first mainstream honkey who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” I guess I’ll have to take his word for it. All the same pretty cool shit to have a founding member of seminal 1980s polka group, “Fascism Forever,” in the SCOTUS hot seat.

this was pretty cool to wake up to this morning! THIS

And apparently "thanks" to Ivanka and Jarred ( I don't know if that's how he spells it I don't
honestly give a fuck) because apparently it was at their bidding that sherbet baby face decided
not to drop that LGBT etc. "freedom of religion" law....or perhaps it's better to thank the
businesses that decided to drop Ivanka's spring line of shitty clothing....all the same I'll say
a prayer for them at my local tax-exempt yet soon to be politically charged church.

Lastly…it was brought to my attention that the George Orwell novel, 1984 is back on the best-seller list. Congratulations America for getting it right…..after the fact, as always. While I don’t think the sherbet baby-dick administration looks at all like Big Brother and the party (order vs chaos and confusion with the aftertaste of incompetence) I do worry that if we do not resist 40-50 years from now we could see a society that mirrors the one in 1984. Who am I kidding? It’s more likely we’ll probably look much more like the world depicted in Mike Judge’s 2006 film, The Idiocracy…of we’ll be dead via a nuclear war or climate change destruction. In bracing for the coming of sherbet baby-dick I read A LOT of dystopia last year. Anyone looking for a crash course would be well-served to read 1984, Sinclair Lewis’ It Can’t Happen Here, Jack London’s Iron Fist, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, and Yevgeny’s Zamyatin’s WE for starters. Or go the YA route with some Hunger Games….or if books aren’t your style….pick up a daily newspaper because, guess what motherfuckers, WE LIVE IN A DYSTOPIA NOW.
Anyway…..we got some good stuff lined up.  At 12pm today collage work of Madrid’s own Oscar Varona, and tomorrow the poetic stylings of Jason Baldinger.
