The world is quite a befuddling orb at the moment. One hurricane smacked the heartland of Climate Change deniers, and another is bearing down on Florida – many of whose residents are Trump supporters and whose lawns are tended by illegal immigrants.
If the wall were in place, where would the cheap labor come from to fix everything?
One wonders if the Republicans can appreciate the irony. Probably not.
Then there is North Korea and its crazy leader. North Korea has been led by a crazy family since the 1950s; nothing new there. The danger is that we now have our own crazy leader who also is ignorant of the perils of double-daring an ill-informed and solipsistic opponent to do something stupid.
As if that weren’t enough, there is Loveland, America’s favorite postmark every February.
Right here in the middle of Republicanistan, one small vassal municipality can’t draw its gun without shooting itself in the foot. Apparently only Donny Trump can match the Loveland city council’s ability to get folks riled up over just how the public trust should be violated.
While I am unsure as to the specific specificities of this specific situation, the outcome will involve extensive installation of orange barrels to re-direct traffic. My guess is that both sides are being funded by the deep state cabal that owns the traffic cone concession. Regardless, the citizens will be left with increased tax bills.
The Democrats will wind up not being able to do anything and remain on the outs.
Loveland’s leaders have to be careful though, because if they keep the place torn up long enough people will just reprogram their GPS devices to find Mainveille or Pisgah.
Loveland’s woes are covered in depth for Milford and the rest of Clermont County to enjoy.
After all, the best entertainment is Schadenfreude, because the misery under examination is someone else’s problem.
Not so with climate change/global warming and nuclear war. Sooner or later, the downstream effects of these things will reach Clermont County.
Which brings us back to North Korea and the warmer climate generating bigger and more fearsome storms.
In both instances, things have got to cool down.
This leads to consideration of the clever machinations of our president. While I think he is the personification of the south end of a north-bound horse, I gotta give him his props. He’s got it figured out.
The brilliance of his plan is in its simplicity: an atomic exchange with North Korea will bring on nuclear winter.
Nuclear winter will lower world temperatures (among other things) to pre-industrial conditions without our having to stop burning coal. Just think of all the construction jobs that will be created!
And, North Korea will go away – so will South Korea, but by then Samsung phones probably won’t be needed.
I’m surprised our local Tea Party pundits haven’t picked up on this plan and touted its brilliance.
Maybe they’re keeping it on the down-low whilst they stock up on canned goods and ammo. I’m just sayin’.
