When I criticize a lot, I get criticized a lot. When I picked on Hillary, that was not viewed equally. It appears that it’s okay to trash Trump or Ted all day. Many, though, think I had wrongly aired Ms. Clinton’s dirty laundry. There’s one prominent detail: all my “critics” were female! So, to all my lady readers, and the “woman power creeders”, do you hate my Clinton churl ’cause I’m picking on a girl? Hillary’s a politician, not some uppity patrician. She’s right down there in the trench rooting through the awful stench politics brings to the surface (what the candidates call ‘service’). Mrs. Clinton has to yield to the level playing field. Gender is no element; what I said is what I meant. Anyone who takes a fee, as a speaker, isn’t free to be fair with legislation that affects the whole damn nation! That holds true for Donald, Ted, Marco, Bernie, even Jeb! Something deep within their soul should say, “don’t stay on the dole!” -RKO- #175 02-06-16
It’s not “what they offered”; it’s what YOU demanded. Such slick money-grubbing should be reprimanded. They didn’t just call you and ask you to speak. There’s something they want, they expect you to “tweak” a small regulation, or twist a few arms, or do something else to ensure no one harms their hidden agenda or the profits they show. You know, Mrs. Clinton, it’s all ‘quid pro quo’. You didn’t just talk and “answer some questions” and then walk away without some ‘suggestions’ on how you might favor their shadowy con. You know, just as they do, there’s a ‘sine qua non’. So don’t try to tell us it wasn’t your will to brazenly pose as some innocent shill. For that kind of money, you know what you’ll do; and, that, Mrs. Clinton, is why you’re such a shrew! Don’t claim that you’re blameless; we’re not that naive. There’s nothing you’ll say to make us believe your intentions were clean, as pure as bee’s honey. We know all you do is for power or money. You once said you wouldn’t stay home and bake cookies. Well, in twenty five years, you’ve surpassed all the rookies. You’re up in the ‘big time’; the money rolls in as you blatantly soothe your penchant to win! -RKO- #174 02-05-16
If you listen very closely you’ll notice quite a contrast when Hillary and Bernie debate each other’s past. When speaking of her record, Ms. Clinton uses “I”; it’s all about ‘supporting’ her [I think we all know why]. But Bernie frequently will use a different pronoun: “WE”…. a subtle, small distinction, I’m sure we’ll all agree. But it makes a HUGE difference to folks like you and me! While Clinton has made millions from talking to elites, ol’ Bernie asks for twenty bucks from us in the ‘cheap seats’. And isn’t that what politics should be about, my friend? It’s not about the “I” or “me” that matters in the end. It’s all about the plural, “WE the people” one must serve, and Bernie seems to understand how that’s what we deserve! The only thing that matters, as Bernie likes to say, is how we “common folks” are served “at the end of the day”! -RKO- #173 02-04-16
Now Trump is accusing Ted Cruz of abusing the system and “stealing” the win. Cruz started a rumor – Trump claims, without humor – that Carson was no longer “in”. Of course, Ted denies it and chooses to size it all up to Trump’s hating to lose. But some have surmised Ted apologized to Carson [that don’t sound like Cruz!]. So, if Trump’s right and Cruz rigged the fight, isn’t that worth – at least – checking out? If Trump’s just a sore loser, such a charge is a ‘doozer’, and we need to erase any doubt. If this kind of pillory was hurled at Hillary, our tempers and anger would swell! But, since it’s just Trump – we’re willing to slump, shrug it off, “What the hell? It’s just Donald’s ranting, his way of recanting. We all know how he hates to lose. And it’s just his way of having his say and turning the screws to Ted Cruz!” There’s no longer “cooping”, nefarious snooping, or other such foul ‘dirty tricks’. But that doesn’t mean that we haven’t seen more cheating to add to the mix! The GOP teeters – among party leaders, we all know they never liked Trump. They can’t let Trump see a first victory, or he’ll just continue to stump! So they planted some ‘scamp’ in the Cruz campaign camp, and the gossip just started to spread. And before it’s all done, the “Cruzer” had won – ’cause voters thought Carson was dead! -RKO- #172 02-03-16
“God bless Iowa!” Cruz raised up his arm. Trump is coming back to buy himself a farm! Hillary and Bernie are running neck-and-neck. Do you think we’re gonna see a political train wreck? Can Marco do a thing or two that might give him the win? Or, is it highly likely that, by now, the “fix” is in? -RKO- #171 02-02-16
Bernie and Hillary practically tied. Trump came in second; I almost cried. I’d have preferred a massive landslide for Donald and Bernie; those two can collide! Clinton and Cruz might be hard to defeat. They know how to suck off the taxpayers’ teat. Sanders and Trump are better, you bet, since neither owe any ‘establishment’ debt! -RKO- #170 02-01-16
