Post Apacolyptic

What keeps me awake at night is what happens when the wicked witch of the hand wringers kicks the orangutan’s teeth in. Of course the polls are tightening. Still, it’s all over but the shouting.

It’s complicated. Obama did elevate the discourse on racism by the simple virtue of being black. There is no action without an equal and opposite reaction. No good deed goes unpublished.  The ugly people have gotten all empowered by dog whistle politics cresting at high tide for the lowest common denominator. The dumbasses are more confident than ever thanks to the bellicose bigotry of The Donald.

Now we have this giant group of mouth breathers that feel entitled. They’ve never paid attention to shit and they’re not about to start. But when the short fingered vulgarian loses, there will be conflagrations of extraordinary magnitude. Gawd help us all. There’s a fine line between clever and stupid and these people have never even contemplated it.

I have a social media troll page and these people are dumb as fucking sticks and genuinely scary.  They can’t type a cogent sentence and they wear all caps like cheap cologne.  They don’t give a shit about policy or issues, they are all about the hate. Trump won’t lose his army of useful dipshits.  They aren’t going anywhere and they are weird and pissed off.

Throngs of them will show up carrying openly in the days and weeks after the election.  The indignant vitriol will be as vulgar as it is ubiquitous. They will be hostile and prideful. Buy them a beer and shake their hand.  Hit them in the face with the mug you bought if they get surly or obstreperous, take the gun and go home.  Wait a couple weeks before you visit the pawn shop.  Use the money to buy your kid a nice present.

They will not go quietly.  They would vote for Putin if they could. Trump has succeeded at gathering the absolute dumbest motherfuckers in America into one intellectually bankrupt cage.  I’ve seen this kind of dumb before and so have you.

They don’t have hobbies.

They are addicted to rage.

They will begin by screeching voter fraud.  The collective spittle flung from their angry maws will produce spontaneous rainbows everywhere.  They will insist that illegals and dead people voted prolifically because there aren’t enough bigoted old white men left in America to put Trump over the deficit of minority and female disgust. It’s a mathematical impossibility. A basket of deplorables indeed.  Absolutely clinging to God and guns because nationalism has long since replaced their patriotism.

There aren’t enough FEMA camps.  It’s not like they can be retrained.  Maybe we could release all the non violent brown people from prison and replace them with the army of Trump acolytes.  Put all these people back on the street, let ’em vote, put the mouth breathers in jail and candidates like Trump would find the the path a lot steeper.

I think I’m onto something.

Drinks for my friends.

*Third song from Agnes Gooch.  They were assholes but they could play and write.  We did this at a place called Grand Master.  Walking distance from Club Lingerie.  Across the street from Chandara.  Behind a Jack In The Box on Sunset.  We were all nervous for a day.

It was a dump.  

They had some decent mics, a completely hammered vintage Neve console and brilliant sounding rooms.  I tracked it there and mixed it at Mad Dog.  I have never used the sound of a room like I used the sound of these rooms in this recording.  I’m not sure what kind of voodoo there was but this recording is one of my best.

Turn it up goddamnit.

    I KNOW I USE A LOT OF CAPS, AND MY ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE VIA THE WRITTEN WORD, IS COMPROMISED.
    BUT YOU..MICHAEL DOUGLASS..ARE A FREAKING GENIUS. PEOPLE THAT HAVE ABILITIES TO COMMUNICATE, AND LEAD OTHERS TO IDENTIFY, OBSERVE, AND QUESTION WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THEM, THAT IS THE MARK.

    AS I FIRST BEGAN READING YOUR “POST APOCALYPTIC” POST; IT TOOK A WHILE TO REALIZE THIS ISN’T ONE OF YOUR HORROR FICTION PIECES “MAN IN THE MIRROR”. I JUST THOUGHT THAT YOU’D BEEN SO SPOOKED WITH THE POLITICAL TURMOIL THAT YOU WHERE HAVING ONE OF YOUR MAN IN THE MIRROR EVENTS. FREAKING, WE SHOULD ALL BE SPOOKED.

    THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT, HAS NOT SERVED ITS CONSTITUENTS, SO OF COURSE WHEN SOMEONE COMES ALONG AND LICKS THAT WOUND WITH HATE AND FEAR RHETORIC,IT BECAME A CAKE WALK FOR TRUMP. REPUBLICANS HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER THESE SLOW LEARNERS, AS YOU REFER TO THEM. THIS IS THE TIME TO MAKE THE MOVE TO ESTABLISH A STRONG 3RD PARTY, AND IMPORTANT TO VOTE FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE, NOT WHAT WE FEAR. IT FEELS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS ARE GOING BY, BY. AND HILARY LIKES DIVERSIONS AND ROAD TRIPS TO THE POINT WHERE SHE IS SPREAD SO THIN, TO BE WEAK TEA. WHAT IS OBVIOUS IS THAT UNTIL THE TRAIN WRECK WE WON’T HAVE A PRESIDENT. WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE PIKE HERE IS SCARY AND WEIRD. BARRACK OBAMA MAY BE OUR LAST ELECTED PRESIDENT FOR AGES TO COME. I THINK I’LL HAVE A CHOCOLATE BROWNIE WITH MARIJUANA CAUSE I’M STRESSING!

    • Don’t bogart that joint my friend. Pass it over to me.
      I’m voting for Trump. My IQ is 147. I served our country in the Army Security Agency. Did you get off your hind end to do anything toward bettering this country, or are you like the rest of the Democrats? All mouth and no action? While Trump may be loud and brash, he loves this country and wants to help this country get a day in what happens. He supports the Constitution. He realizes that we don’t want to go back to system that only benefits the elite. Please dear God, do not elect Hillary. She, along
      with New World order, is destroying America from the inside out. She is not the answer. She is part of the problem. She has no original thoughts of her own. She will be Soros’ puppet. At least Trump will lead us in the right direction utilizing the advice of his cabinet. He
      will listen to We The People. Obama has not done that in more than seven and a half years. Hillary said she
      will continue in a like manner. Obama has declared we ate a Muslim nation. Hillary dons a scarf and bows to hateful Imams. I pray the people of the United States will elect Trump, who is the better candidate, and haul Obama’s derrière out of the White House kicking and screaming. The Obama Administration has hidden his deeper and hateful move to destroy our country, behind all the racial unrest. Dr. Martin Luther King
      Is rolling over in his grave to see
      that he accomplished through peace, Obams ruined with his poisonous diatribe. He is Public Enemy Number One for all races in this country!

    “They will begin by screeching voter fraud…” And media sources like Breitbart and Fox will pour gasoline on the flames of their insanity, which there will most certainly be upon Trump’s loss. All these folks who claim to love our country and love democracy are often the first to defecate on the Constitution and law.

    To Ruthann: You smarted off, “Did you get off your hind end to do anything toward bettering this country, or are you like the rest of the Democrats? All mouth and no action? ”

    I volunteered and served six years in the U.S. Army. And I could never support a candidate who intends to issue illegal orders to our military. His willingness to discard the NATO treaties we’ve signed and consistently honored since would spell the end of international trust in our nation. I respect our country and the people who’ve served and defended it more than that, to simply toss it all away because a narcissistic little madman got his feelings hurt over a late night tweet.

    “He supports the Constitution.” Are you kidding me? He’s trying to silence any media that opposes him. He wants to punish women for having legal abortions. He threatens competitors with arrest and imprisonment. He incites crowds to put their hands on protesters.

    “Obama has not done that in more than seven and a half years.” YES, he has. But facts and figures would be wasted on someone like you. I know, because I’ve tried to use reason and references far too many times with Trumpettes like you. I’ve already wasted enough time on you.

    I’m no big Hilary fan, but thank God she’s not a psychopath. I’ll vote for her just to keep Trump from ever having any real authority.

    The fact that you support this sleazeball of a human requires your immediately and permanently forfeiting your woman card. You can turn it in at the door as you leave.

    Excellent, Michael. You always seem to write what I have been thinking.

    G. a. Underwood, I second exactly what you said.
