Monday evening, November 7th, “Countdown to Doomsday.” Perhaps the last “full day” in the life of America as we’ve come to know it. I’m left to ponder what I consider the obvious: What if the Confederates had won the Civil War? What if the Nazis had prevailed on D-Day?

Because we almost found out what happens when White supremacists are inserted into every governmental position, from dogcatcher to governor. Democracy is on the ballot and honestly, truthfully most publicly educated Americans can’t even define democracy: i.e., representative government, elective government, constitutional government, popular government, self-government, government by the people.

Tragically, I ain’t lying. Don’t ask them to define capitalism. Don’t ask them about the capital city of New York or California. Just ask them the score of the game or who’s sleeping with who on what reality show. What they checked out on TikTok.

Two things only the people anxiously desire - bread and circuses.” -Junavel circa 100 AD.

Forgive me, but hell yeah, I’m disgusted with the complete lack of intellectual curiosity present among us, the unwashed masses. Forgive us, o’ God, for we know not what the hell we do!

However, I do think there’s something in the air, a distinct feeling of “walking around on pins n’ needles,” an “uncomfortableness” which can be felt, smelled, and tasted in the thin rocky Mountain air. Call it an “uneasiness” about the eventual “Judgement Day” for the fragile American democratic experiment. A day when we all assume rank n’ file White America, from the good ol’ boys to the Ivy League elites and prep school aristocrats, will align with the rural and suburban White housewives. Trailer park queens, soccer moms, and gated community princesses - together they will rise to the dark occasion, to the darkening of “their” America, and vote Republican.

There seems to be across Red America a zest and zeal among the admitted zealots, a mean-spirited, vindictive, and perhaps hate-filled desire to maintain white minority rule of America by any diabolical means Donald Trump and his minions, his followers, his cult members deem necessary. Call it a form of punishment.

And if they don’t win, it’s because the contest was rigged, and of course, they really won.

How full of BS that? How scary is that?

I’d argue Trump’s troops have no measurable conscience. No empathy for the millions of people they, at best, struggle to see as equals, whom they’ve branded as uncivilized. I can’t rule out what atrocities are possible and which ones are inconceivable.

Political commentators on Mainstream media are talking of the similarities to 3rd Reich. The term “civil war” is being tossed about endlessly by both sides.

As a news geek, I ran across this prediction in The Guardian of what’s to come for America as White people “take back their country” - “These are conditions ripe for political violence” “How close is the US to civil war?” “If a second civil war breaks out in the US, it will be a guerrilla war fought by multiple small militias spread around the country. Their targets will be civilians – mainly minority groups, opposition leaders, and federal employees. Judges will be assassinated, Democrats and moderate Republicans will be jailed on bogus charges, black churches and synagogues bombed, pedestrians picked off by snipers in city streets, and federal agents threatened with death should they enforce federal law. The goal will be to reduce the strength of the federal government and those who support it, while also intimidating minority groups and political opponents into submission.”

I go to bed on the eve of the end of America with that vision of a chaotic America on the horizon and on my mind. Good God. Prepared to be let down by White women who’ll stand by their male chauvinistic racist men and betrayed by …… Black men will be too busy watching the game to bother.

Tuesday in the early AM: I catch Black Republican Micheal Steele explaining “why” Black and Latino men, who see themselves as the kings of their castles, may very well vote for Herschel, Donald, and all the dummies. Meanwhile, CNN is already highlighting the battlefield that is Pennsylvania and Ohio. Florida wants to let the DeSantis foxes guard the votes at the hen’s house. You tell ’em.

I wonder if Don Lemon realizes he’ll be either exiled, imprisoned, or lynched if Trump’s Right gets what they want.

I’m already left with the thought: if we don’t beat the tar out of them in virtually every race, they will claim victory, and we will fold under the Marquess of Queensberry Rules that only we are abiding by.

Black America’s fate and destiny lie in the hands of disconnected White women and disinterested Black men. Please tell me I’m wrong!

Tuesday in the PM…. Arizona, Maricopa County, and the provocateurs and instigators are already claiming there are wait time issues. Let the BS begin.

Here I sit, listening to Joy Reid tell Rachel Meadow how Black people will simply not show up in Florida. It’s going to be pathetic, “anemic” was her exact word. And my thought is how either disconnected from reality, dumb or apathetic are these Black folks? This failure to show-up only underscores my opinion of “we are our own worst enemies” gravely unenlightened, or should I say worldly or sophisticated - we only show up for Obama… Politics are akin to three-tier Star Trek Chess - you’ve got to be thinking.

Tuesday night, countdown to doomsday for the USA: Considering what’s at stake - merely the fate of the free world. The vote counting appears to be off to a normal start, nonetheless I’m afraid to tune into FOX so that I can monitor the ignoble opposition, I just don’t have the stomach to yet. Uncle Tim Scott is being rewarded for being a good boy, and Ohio is going Confederate with JD Vance.

Wednesday morning…. “Doomsday” hasn’t come... yet. No violence at the polls. Senator Warnock lives to fight that Uncle Tom sellout another day, and that wicked, wicked witch in Arizona didn’t have a house fall on her. Damn!

I’m going to take a breath. Women showed up, Americans of color showed up, and the result - Democracy is apparently saved, for the moment, for the moment. Most of Trump’s minions have been defeated, for the moment. The “Red Tidal Wave” never rolled across the nation and drowned democracy. The GOP’s efforts to change the narrative, which was correctly focused on racism and sexism, was replaced by Trumpian propaganda which insisted crime and inflation were the boogy men at the door. It fell upon the deaf ears of the enlightened.


Now let’s get ready for 2024 because guess what: the enemies of peace, brotherhood, and unity will be back at it today. They will not go quietly into the good night. The cold civil war will continue to boil, but that’s ok. Here, let Franklin D. Roosevelt explain...

We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace-business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob. Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me - and I welcome their hatred.”

I, we, us should welcome the hate from this cult - for these are people who are so despicable and trifling you don’t want their friendship or respect. Instead, you welcome their hatred - I do.

Power to the people!

All power to the people.
