A Funeral for Decency
Author: BobR    Date: 2018-12-06 08:00:00

George H.W. Bush was eulogized and memorialized yesterday in an official service in DC yesterday. Being a former president and WWII vet, it was expected that former and current presidents would attend. Jimmy Carter, Bill & Hillary Clinton, and the Obamas all were there, as was Dubya (of course). Unlike Barbara Bush's funeral, pResident tRump was not excluded. He was, however, precluded from speaking, for any number of obvious reasons.

He arrived a bit late, although that could be for security precautions, being the current pres... er... occupant of the White House. He was seated at the end of the row, with Melanie Melania between him and Barack Obama, who apparently acted as a buffer for the rest of those down the aisle. He didn't seem to be too happy to be there:

Of course, the funeral was not about him, and he wasn't the center of attention, everyone was showing love and respect for someone else and he had to just sit there and listen to it. His posture is classic defensive/impatient/angry, and has been described as looking like he's sitting on a toilet. THAT's an image I'd rather not have in my head.

As the service went on, the attendees recited a prayer known as the "Apostles' Creed". The words were printed in the program. Guess who didn't participate?




Keep in mind THIS is the guy the evangelical community holds up as The Chosen One for themselves, practically deifying him. This is how he shows his "Christian" side.

At another part of ceremony (not sure what was going on - National Anthem perhaps?), we see tRumpy once again showing his patriotism:

While all of this may seem petty and lacking context, the larger picture still holds - tRump can't be bothered with any of the normal roles and responsibilities that his job demands, if it doesn't inflate him in some way. His insatiable ego demands he not waste time doing for others and showing respect to others, since that takes away time for placing the focus on himself.

Some people are praising his actions at the funeral because apparently they think he didn't cause a scene. In reality - he did, in his own selfish petulant way. He fell far short of his predecessors sitting in the same pew. He's a disgrace to the office, a disgrace to the country, and a disgrace on humanity itself.

Goooood mornin'!

There was some stuff going on in the background around the world while many eyes were focused on HW's final departure and the drama of people who behave badly.

In Canada, the CFO of Huawei Electronics was arrested. This wouldn't be a big deal unless for three facts:

- There haven't been any actual charges presented in Canada yet ( aka they have no legal reason to arrest her)

- Canada is saying they will extradite to the US on charges of violating our reimposed sanctions on Iran, which I thought the rest of the world was going to help countries avoid for reasons..

- Not even a week ago, at the G20 summit in Argentina, Individual 1 and Xi Jinping of China agreed to a truce on the trade war so negotiations could happen. Now we're basically holding one of their country's corporate executives on what is essentially a political charge.

Speaking of H.W. remember the Willie Horton ad? Why is no one talking about that, or the fact that he made life hell for LGBTQ Americans, Black Americans or non-Christian Americans? If this is the standard, then I don't want to hear one fucking work about Monica when Bill passes. Not. One. Fucking. Word.

There's been a lot of mixed remembrance of HW the past few days, and it kinda put his job as President into context better for me. On matters of foreign policy & relations, he was arguably one of the best we've ever had. On things more domestic and in specific regards to individual rights and social justice, he was one of the worst.

good morning!


Personally, I am pissed that people are saying the HRC wasn't nice to that slovenly excuse for an occupant of the White House.

HE DID NOT GREET HER.

Looks like the stock market(s) are in freefall again today.

Not to mention the Invasion of Panama, the first Gulf War (which side effects lingered into the crap we got into with his son and Osama Bin Laden), and his pardoning of Iran-Contra felons including Caspar Weinberger on the Christmas before he left office.

And there have been the rumors that he and William Casey were at a secret meeting in Paris to cut a deal to delay the release of the Iranian hostages.

I survived a MALL at Christmas time.
