COUNTDOWN: There are still 1,123 days left in this corrupt administration’s term in office…
MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY! Today we welcome back our talented master podcaster Burr Deming after a brief absence. Please, if you would, offer up your prayers and kind thoughts for Burr, his wife, and her sister, who recently narrowly escaped death in a head-on collision. She now faces a long road of therapy and slow recovery. So let’s have our combined Christmas wish be for her complete restoration to good health, shall we?
Today, Burr discusses how far our once liberal, but now reactionary, CON-servative Republican Party has fallen since the days it was first created and elected Abraham Lincoln President. It has attained complete control of our federal government as well as a majority of our governorships and state legislatures, but in the process has abandoned its once solid moral footing and support for fiscal sanity. Proof of this is abundant – the election of a con-man named Presi-dunce Donald Chump; its adoption of constant lying to advance its objectives; its support for an alleged child molester in the recent Alabama Senate race; its embrace of shadowy, hate-filled and divisive figures like Steve Bannon and white nationalists; its passage of a preposterous and unneeded tax cut for the rich which will saddle future generations with an unsustainable $1.5 TRILLION debt just so its billionaire donors of today (including both the Presi-dunce and his family) can reap a huge windfall – the list goes on and on and on. Burr emphasizes all of this in a way that is similar to my recent post of Dec. 14, but does so in his 0wn much more uniquely entertaining way. Today, for example, he references old TV shows like “The Honeymooners” and a 1970s film starring Ryan O’Neal and his daughter Tatum called “Paper Moon” to illustrate his point about the rise of Republican hypocrisy and their demonstrated need to win at all costs.
Burr says, “Steve Bannon said he wanted to do for the GOP in Alabama what propagandist Leni Riefenstahl did for German Nazis in the 1930s.
In his own way, he succeeded.”
