An Editorial: I Understand, Kathy

Yes, I am in all probability one of a very, very few people going against the current flap over Kathy Griffin's photograph.  That one.  It certainly is not fun being the public pinata of the day.  It was also NOT a joke, in spite of her profession as comedienne.  It was an editorial statement -- much like the vile editorial "cartoons" which are published against Muslims in our nation's newspapers.  These have been in all probability a part of the anti-Islamic violence which has been perpetuated against innocent people.  Yes, there are Terrorist cells in this country; but, there are far more innocent people who are victims who have been targeted because of their religion, sometimes egged on by these very images.  Are these artists castigated and fired for their Free Speech?  They are not.  Free Speech is guaranteed to us in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Yes, she made us uncomfortable for a few minutes; but,  Ms. Griffin cannot do anything against President Trump except show her scorn, her disgust, and, yes, her out-right hatred of him.  She is NOT a threat.  I duplicate her feelings and probably more.  I cringed when I found out the degree of utter stupidity to which the United States has fallen.  The fact that we have elected criminals should tell us that (as well as having them in unelected advisorship roles).  I do not use pretty language anymore (I learned all my cuss words while an officer in the US Air Force, including remote duty in South Korea.)  I'll not be harassed by any MAN who dares to say I'm not nice enough or diplomatic.  These have failed or did you not get the memo?

High Treason and Perjuries

We have reached historical levels of lowness and corruption for any presidency contemplated by the original authors of the Constitution.  Before Mr. Trump (I refuse to give him the honorific) was seated in office he had already "allegedly" committed perjuries and high treason against the people of the United States of America.  Mr. Trump would dare sell his own nation out in order to sit on the highest seat that it has to offer -- and to make it even worse, he did it through lies.  This was done with the collusion of Mr. Putin, head of the Sov..., excuse me here, Russian Federation.  It is a well known fact that Comrade Stalin is Mr. Putin's "poster boy."

The Russian Federation actually broke into American cyber networks, including the DNC.  This is what makes this high treason.  If they can do this then they can monkey around with our military.  In all probability they already have (this comes from logical deduction).

This is why Mr. Trump and his gang of thieves need to be brought before a Federal Grand Jury and placed under oath.  We know what the truth is.  We know he cannot tell the truth.  He cannot distinguish the truth from his lies.  Morally he is a stunted three year old.  Yes, it will be painful and embarrassing.  There were many people who should have known better in November.  We are no longer like the Roman Republic, when men who showed dishonesty opened their veins in order to at least save their name for their families. He will possess a prison cell, a prison cell which he should never leave.

This Should Be Appealable

I have not written much about the horrible politics of this past year.  However, with the recent intelligence of active Russian and FBI collusion with the Republican Party, NO ONE can say with a straight face that this election was anything but FIXED.  The huge plurality of the popular vote alone along with the small percentages of victory in certain red-leaning electoral states, which pushed the old-fashioned Electoral College into Trump's camp shows this.  There must be a way to stop this illegality.
I suggest that the Supreme Court, on the basis of the evidence, throw out the results of the November Presidential election.  A special election for President can then be called for early February. There would be no time for any campaigning.  In fact, I believe the Court should forbid it.  The Electoral College should also be put on hiatus.  All information about the 2016 election and its shenanighans should be made known to the American people.  No excuses will be accepted.
This filthiness will only leave us when we wake up from the national hang-over Trump put most of us into with his siren songs of impossibility.  We already see the ugliness of what he will bring. My judgment of America will fall to the utter depths if this is allowed to continue.  I never knew such ugliness really existed before this time except in spots.  Now it shows its face in the University.  I weep.

Re-Blog From The New Oxonian

Re-blogging from The New Oxonian:

READERS of this page will know that I don’t do editorials.   I do essays, sometimes long and turgid essays, on things that interest me, matter to me, worry me.
That is why I am playing against type and writing a short op-ed on Donald Trump.
I am deeply worried about something that everyone has said, and most have believed, but now  in the wake of media “normalization” activity and legitimation maneuvers we are in danger of forgetting.  After all, just as the media got simply everything wrong about the election, including the outcome, they persist in persisting to think that they can create a new narrative and a new frame for a man who by any normal measure comes up small and short. That “something” is that Mr Trump is unfit for office. ...

Clean Up The House Austenesque Authors!

It is getting worse out there, readers!  Even our good Austenesque authors are not doing as well with the editing of the books that they publish.  Personally, I am getting tired of mentally editing everyone's books. 
About two years ago I started to work on an on-line site/blog in order to set up a small business to edit books.  I have had a number of unforeseen interruptions, one of which has been my husband's precarious state of health.  Now that he has had his heart surgery, I will be working on that site to bring it up to speed.  I will be announcing its opening here and will be taking out advertisements on JAFF sites.  I have taught English and composition and am a total spelling and grammar nerd.
