Popinjay...

Definition…a vain or conceited person, especially one who dresses or behaves extravagantly.


Meet DJ Trump...


Picture Poppin J Trumpalooka, Hip Hop DJ, rockin’ and boppin’ along.


He’s on roller skates, dressed in a clown suit like Bozo or Ronald McDonald, making his way around a Walmart parking lot.


His rainbow patterned, spandex unitard, topped with a flouncing pink neck ruffle, is a stunning sight to behold.


My vision is of Tweedledum or Tweedle Dee, morphed with one of those Joe Palooka punching bag dolls that wobble on a rounded base.


Sometimes down, but never out, Trumpalooka always pops back up.


The Joe Palooka blow up doll image is better if you see it as way over inflated, ready to burst at the slightest pinprick.


Let yourself imagine Trump’s existing hairdo, styled like Bozo, and returned to the orange color he sported for so long, before switching to the more presidential ash blonde tone currently in use.


His huge Boom Box features a TV screen.


Trumpalooka never misses anything.


Too bad ol’ Rodney Dangerfield is gone.


“Trumpalooka”...starring Rodney Dangerfield as POTUS.


Talk about a comedy blockbuster.

A Blip On The Screen...

Tales will be told of the short, twisted reign of Donald J. Trump.

Once upon a time, a bloated, ego driven, billionaire businessman promoted himself to President of The United States of America. 

Even Trump himself was amazed when it actually worked and he found himself sitting in The White House.

Trump entertained himself, toying with the pure joy of power, but he really craved love and admiration.

This drove him to appeal directly to the public, hoping to feel the flow of love streaming his way. 

His enormous sense of self was there for all to see.

What he felt flowing his way was derision and pure hatred.

His dealings became public, daily fodder for the masses.

It did not go well.

Fractured by the onslaught of negativity and impoverished from the overwhelming legal fees he faced after his dealings became public knowledge, Trump, disheveled and wearing only a dirty white robe, was finally escorted from The White House and delivered to Moscow, penniless.

Back in private life, his appeal to the public no longer played, his contacts disappeared, and his yearning for fame and glory led him down numerous blind alleys.

He was last seen doing porn, wallowing like a beached whale, while Russian trannies pissed all over him.

Trump's descent was rapid, to say the least.

In the end, he was nothing more than a blimp on the screen.

Climatus Interruptus...

Climate Change and Sea Level Rise have been my focus since 2007.

Yes, they're real.

Everything else, why, how, what next, what to do, how bad, etc., is pure speculation.

Planet Earth is warming toward the poles.

This is causing ice caps to melt and oceans to warm.

The consensus is becoming, "We did it".

Our excessive use of Carbon fuels has altered Earth's atmosphere.

Humanity's success has come with a price.

It's time to stop dithering over Climate Change, and learn to live with it.

The billionaire class intends to make more billions in defiance of Climate Change.

Right now, we have The Donald and his cohorts around the world promising us a period of enormous growth.

Oil and Coal will be consumed in vast quantities. 

It will be a burst of Carbon fueled, atmosphere fouling, wealth and opportunity.

They don't care.

A bunch of old guys, who will be dead before the worst cases of environmental abuse take full effect, need not be concerned about the future.

They did not become the billionaire class by giving a rat's ass about you, me, or anyone else.

Damn the future, full speed ahead! 

Gratification awaits!

Bring on the chocolate cake.

Climate...Environment...Us...

As you proceed, you will come across a lot about Climate Change and The Climate Crisis.

The subject is rife with doubt and confusion, here's my take.

First of all, the term itself, Climate Change, is a poor choice.

Earth's climate has been changing regularly since long before there was us.

This is about changes to our niche, combined with the fear and doubt of 'is it our fault, and what can we do?'.

So let's start off by calling it such.

This is a niche altering event.

Niche Change is the term I prefer.

The next point is to confront the man-made v. natural occurrence part.

This can be solved by simply realizing that We Are Nature.

The whole concept of man-made v. natural is ridiculous.

What we do on Planet Earth is as much a part of the natural course of events as the Sunrise.

Our behavior, smart, dumb, good, bad, or otherwise, is natural, and it seems that our most enduring natural tendency is to take until it's used up and move on.

All of a sudden, we have been hit with the notion that there's no place else to go.

We have fouled our own nest.

The greener pastures are disappearing.

We've over consumed, messed up the environment, and it's way too late to stop.

Bad for us.

These actions have little or no effect on Planet Earth.

She withstood much worse, long before we arrived.

This is about us, not The Planet.

So we better get together and start taking better care of Our Niche.

His Trumpness...

Ever since Ringling Brothers folded their tent, The Donald has become "The Greatest Show On Earth!"

I wonder if POTUS has called Howard Stern, claiming the title of "NEW King Of All Media". 

Let's face it, this guy is the most famous, most powerful clown alive today.

Forget about Trump's inability as POTUS, that's a misdirectional farce.

He is winning big time at the game of his choice.

If all goes according to plan, the tallest building on Earth will soon be erected in Dubai, or Abu Dhabi.

When completed, it will have a huge, red, white, and blue, rotating neon sign saying TRUMP atop the spire.

Mega rich, ultimately powerful, and the most awesome force ever to hit the world of entertainment.

News programming has its highest ratings ever.

Trump's exploits have hit that magic spot in the collective psyche. 

His every random brain spasm is consumed, analyzed, and evaluated for hidden content, keeping us all on the edge of our seats.

Ever since POTUS started announcing FOX to be his favorite network on a nightly basis, FOX stock has gone from right around $20 to over $30, tangible proof of his media clout, and quite a return for ol' Rupert in less than a year.

***

The Donald has the world's worst case of  'make the other person wrong at all cost'.

It is the core of his character.

He has no qualms or second thoughts.

His ability to delude himself is unbounded.

He has the narrowly focused glare of a zealot when things get heated.

The leader of the free world is getting away with it right before our eyes and we are transfixed.

The delusional Donald is smart, rich, nice, delightfully charming, yet still the kinda guy you'd like to have a drink with, one of the boys.

When he sticks his foot in his mouth with events like bragging about grab ass to the reporter, it's because he wants the guy to like him, and has the reporter psyched as the type who would be impressed. 

Always on the make.

Trump's Achille's heel is his never ending yearning to be loved.

He'd trade richest, most powerful, and most famous for most loved.

POTUS is genuinely surprised that his firing of Comey didn't have Democrats dancing in the streets.

His instincts do not suit politics.

While it may appear that he's a novice, getting his feet wet while learning from his mistakes, the reality is, no thought of adapting to the art of compromise will ever exist in POTUS mind.

If this man remains POTUS, we will adapt to him and his ways.

Give Trump another six months and chaos in The White House will be the least of our daily concerns.

As long as he continues to stay ahead of charges against him, and everything slips off his back, only to be lost in his prodigiously churning wake, he will not slow down.

The potential directions he could steer the ship of state are staggering to consider.

It's obvious from his responses thus far that he will escalate the blathering fog into a threatening maelstrom on a whim.

As the pressure mounts, the fractures in Trump's character will deepen, and the wacky responses will intensify.

Our guy has never been rebuked, and now it's happening on the world stage. 

Snickering can be heard.

"Why don't they love me?"

Trump needs to learn that his job description is "glad handing frontman".

He's like a casino greeter, or carnival shill, while the real business takes place behind the curtain. 

Picture him getting down with 'his people', doing surprise appearances at Walmart, shaking hands and steering folks in the right direction.

He'd love that job, and we'd all sleep much better.

Feel the love Donnie Boy!

FRONTIER USA...


This image was created in '08.

The FRONTIER aspect was based on our dawning environmental awareness.

In my fantasy, we learned from the hoopla over Climate Change, and began the process of adjusting and adapting to alternatives.

What actually happened is that a bunch of old billionaires seized power and forged ahead with no concerns for the long term ramifications of environmental abuse.

The worst events on the climate horizon won't happen until the billionaires are in their tombs, leaving only a collective legacy of abuse.

Full steam ahead, no restrictions, one last hurrah for the old rich guys and their blindly inconsiderate ways.

The participants became billionaires by using and abusing anything and everything to the point of diminishing returns.

Why stop now?

The Future will take care of itself.

It always does.
 
FRONTIER USA has taken on a much different meaning than I originally intended, but, it's the only frontier out there.

Seize it.

We are there.
