Who’s Mental?


Cjones06062021

What if you are athletically gifted but not really good with public speaking?

There are people who are uncomfortable in a crowd, talking to strangers, are shy, or are just bad interviewees. You can argue over who was a better boxer, Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali, but there’s no question who was better with the press.

We look at athletes and see them making millions at their jobs, and when they compete for a championship, we expect more out of them.

We believe since athletes are being paid millions, they owe us. But the truth is, they don’t.

It is a perk when an athlete is able to speak to the public. It’s a great bonus when an athlete can use hir or her position, like LeBron James has, to advance social issues and helps his or her community. It’s especially valuable to the media. Some teams and leagues require their athletes to be available to the press at designated times. Some athletes are not prepared for that kind of pressure. New Orleans Saints running back Ricky Williams was so shy, he would give interviews while wearing his helmet. He was also a person who suffered from social anxiety. The attention his athletic abilities attracted actually hurt his career.

Back to LeBron James, who has refused to reveal whether or not he has been vaccinated, citing his privacy. He has a right to his privacy but he may have put the pressure on himself after being very outspoken on other issues. Where do we draw the line? Also, he should really get vaccinated and use his position to promote it, but that’s just me.

Tennis star Naomi Osaka planned to skip post-match press conferences at the French Open, where she was a favorite to win. She revealed she is suffering from depression and being pressured with multiple questions after hours of physically competing against the best in the world wasn’t appealing to her. After arriving in Paris, she made it know she wouldn’t be doing the press conferences. In response, the Grand Slam Organizations fined her $15,000 and threatened her with suspension which could have prohibited her from playing the French Open, the U.S. Open, the Australian Open, and even Wimbledon. In response to that response, Osaka walked away from the French Open.

She apologized, especially to the press who had been “cool” with her in the past, admitting her wording and timing could have been better…but she owned her power and asserted control for herself. After Osaka received support from other athletes, that same association that fined and threatened further punishment commended her for coming forward about her struggles with mental health and pledged to improve the players’ experience at their events. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Why didn’t they talk to her about it before they fined and threatened her?

These people care about other people about as much as Ron DeSantis cares about trans athletes.

DeSantis and his fellow racist Florida Republicans have been busy haters. They created new laws making it harder for black people to vote. The made a law making it legal to run over black protesters with your car. Then, they made it illegal for transgender females to compete in school sports.

Someone on my Facebook page wrote Republicans are really good at solving problems that barely exist…if they exist at all, from voter fraud, to trans athletes, to Mr. Potato Head, etc.

DeSantis said, “In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports.” He signed the bill at Trinity Christian Academy, a fundamentalist prep school preparing America’s future right-wing zealots. When he signed his hater-voter bill, he did so live on Fox News while barring other media outlets. He also signed it on the first day of Gay Pride Month. A similar law is on the books in Idaho and there are measures to duplicate it in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

The NCAA, which requires transgender women to get treatment to lower their testosterone levels before they can compete in women’s sports, said it would commit championship games to “locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination.” Guess what. That’s not Florida.

Originally, there was language in the bill that included a requirement transgender athletes in high schools and colleges undergo testosterone or genetic testing and submit to having their genitalia examined.

Basically, DeSantis is taking sports away from kids. Republicans are making an art out of cruelty. Donald Trump is to blame for this pattern that requires one to be as vile and ugly as possible to be a Republican.

Athletes are not required to be totally open with us because they’re not public servants. Politicians like Ron DeSantis are public servants we pay.

I’m less concerned about them being boy, girl, or trans, and more concerned, especially with regards to Republicans, whether or not they’re actually human.

Exclusively Fox


Cjones05092021

How much longer before we see a live execution on Fox & Friends? Now that South Carolina is going to start executing people by firing squad, any day now. South Carolina’s excuse is that it’s harder to get the chemicals for lethal injections and since this is Murica, there will never be a supply problem with bullets. Here’s another solution: Stop killing people.

Fox & Friends did get an exclusive today. Florida’s dipshit racist buttface governor, Ron DeSantis signed a new law, making it harder for blacks to vote, live on the air on Fox & Friends…and excluded all other news outlets from viewing the signing.

Since this was official state business, what right did he have in barring access from a free press? Take note, he also did this just days after World Press Freedom Day.

But the thing is, kids, this isn’t a new law that’s better for Florida or voting rights. If it was, he wouldn’t have made signing such a partisan bill on a political photo-op on Donald Trump’s favorite hater TV show. Now, when he signs the bill making it legal to run over black protesters in your car and murdering them, will he do that live from Mar-a-Lago?

Here’s my wish: The nine-ton Chinese rocket falling from space this weekend lands on Mar-a-Lago.

DeSantis had previously bragged that Florida’s presidential election was a model for the rest of the country. So why is he signing a bill based on bogus Trump bullshit? Donald Trump is not president (sic) anymore. Can we stop having laws designed to kiss his ass?

Since I don’t watch Fox, I can’t be sure…but how much do you want to bet that none of the goons on Fox & Friends stood up for their “journalism” colleagues at other outlets and questioned why they were the only ones present? The odds are better on the Chinese Rocket crashing into Mar-a-Lago.

Why can’t we have the Chinese rocket crashing into Mar-a-Lago while Ron DeSantis is kissing Trump’s ass live on Fox & Friends? Shit like that never happening is what’s keeping me very agnostic.

Burying The Numbers


cjones07212020

As the coronavirus pandemic started to take form in the United States and there were only 15 known cases, Donald Trump assured us the numbers would start going down and soon we would be at zero cases. This was one of many lies from Donald Trump and his administration about the virus.

Today, Donald Trump is telling us that the only reason we have so many cases is that we have so much testing as if testing creates cases. He says we test more than any other nation. He tells us the virus is harmless to 99 percent of those who catch it. He says we have one of the “lowest mortality rates in the world.” Each of these claims is a lie.

Donald Trump has told over 20,000 lies since becoming president (sic) and even when it comes to public safety and mortality, he continues to lie. His niece, Mary Trump, the author of the new book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” said her uncle is not able to solve the coronavirus. If Donald Trump can’t admit when he’s made mistakes or even accept scientific evidence and facts during a pandemic, then he’s not the man to solve the pandemic.

We are rapidly approaching 140,00 deaths from the coronavirus in the United States. Mary Trump picked the right title for her book. Donald Trump is the world’s most dangerous man.

Now, the White House is ordering hospitals to stop reporting key data about their patients to the Center for Disease Control and to instead feed it into a new system that will flow directly to the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees the CDC. This means the White House is engaging in a coverup of the death toll. They don’t want us to know the numbers. They’re going to be hidden away like Trump’s taxes and the results from his cognitive test.

For months, Republicans and conspiracy theorists have argued the death toll was inflated. Florida, where Governor Ron DeSantis is a Trump goon, has misreported data from the state.

Florida was warned not to skip safety steps to reopen and that they should wait, and when they did reopen, to do it in phases as New York did. Ron DeSantis scoffed, attacked the press for the reporting, and boasted about how his state was doing so well and conquered the pandemic. Then, he reopened his state. Disney World Reopened. Professional Wrestling was declared an essential service. The Republican National Committee was invited to Jacksonville. Ron DeSantis took an obnoxious victory lap. National Review published an article titled, “Where does Ron DeSantis go to get his apology?”. I hope DeSantis isn’t holding his breath.

Florida was late to shut down and early to reopen. Now, Florida has the worst outbreak of coronavirus in the country. It’s one of the worst in the world. Since the beginning of July, Covid19 cases in the state have gone up nearly 60 percent. Florida has 20 percent more cases than Arizona, 70 percent more cases than Texas, and more than double the cases of California. Florida has more new cases than Europe. In case you’re a Republican, Europe is a continent. The only continent we should have more cases than is Antarctica. Despite all this, DeSantis and Republicans want every school in the state to open. And DeSantis still hasn’t issued an order mandating face masks to be worn. Seriously, there are too many stupid people in charge of important shit in this country.

Then, DeSantis blamed the media claiming they never reported on the virus during the month of May. Yeah, I totally remember a month-long coronavirus news blackout. As a member of the press, I demand an apology from Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis is a Trump acolyte. During his campaign for governor, he ran commercials showing him teaching his children how to build racist walls. He was slow to reopen because Donald Trump downplayed the virus. He was quick to reopen because Donald Trump screamed for the nation to reopen (remember when it was going to go away in spring and we could reopen by Easter?). He wanted the GOP’s convention in his state, acting as though the state scheduled to host it, North Carolina, was overreacting. Even that wrestling thing where he made it an essential business, World Wrestling Entertainment is partly-owned by the chairperson of a Trump super-PAC and former cabinet member, Linda McMahon (and huge donor to the Trump bogus charity).

DeSantis is on board with Donald Trump lying about the virus. Their lies about how bad it isn’t are just as bad as their lies to cover it up. Trump says we have the lowest mortality rate in the world when we have the 7th highest. In case you’re a Republican, there are more than seven countries on the planet and they’re all laughing at us. In fact, 120 more countries have lower mortality rates than we do. So where does Trump get off stating a lie that big? As we’ve learned over the past four years, it doesn’t matter what Trump lies about, his supporters will repeat it.

We don’t have the lowest mortality rate. We don’t have the most testing. And we haven’t had the best leaders. It was reported yesterday that Trump banned flights from Europe too late. It was too late for New York. When Trump first banned flights from China, he only banned travel for Chinese. If it was trade or passengers were American, then they could come on in as if the virus was as racist as Trump is. The virus doesn’t care who has a passport. A lot of people have forgotten about this, but when he initially banned travel from Europe, he excluded nations that had…wait for it…Trump resorts. Seriously, he was willing to let people die over his fucking pocketbook.

Now, the CDC is delaying a release on guidance for reopening schools and the White House sat on a report stating 18 states are in a coronavirus “red zone,” and recommends counties in the red zone to revert to more stringent pandemic measures like closing bars and gyms, limiting social gatherings to 10 people or fewer and requiring masks “at all times outside the home.”

After actions like that, the coronavirus deserves the title “Trump Virus.” Donald Trump has single-handedly made this virus worse. Donald Trump’s response, and lack of, has cost lives. Now he’s trying to hide deaths from the virus. When you have to lie about the numbers, you know you’ve done a lousy job. Donald Trump is the world’s most dangerous man.

DeSantis wants an apology from the media? The entire world is owed an apology from DeSantis, Donald Trump, and everyone who has ever supported these people.

DeSantis Feeds The Children


cjones04152020

Will you die from the coronavirus? That may depend on whether your governor is a Democrat or a Republican.

To be fair, some Republican governors have responded to the coronavirus responsibly putting their constituents first. The governors of Ohio (Mike DeWine), Maryland(Larry Hogan), and Massachusetts (Charlie Baker) have treated this like the serious crisis it is and not as a partisan hoax created by China, Democrats, and Jim Acosta to destroy Donald Trump.

But it’s been governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo, California’s Gavin Newsome, Washington’s Jay Inslee, Louisiana’s John Bel Edwards, and Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer whose name Donald Trump can’t bother himself to learn, who has lead this nation through this crisis.

While Andrew Cuomo has been the leader for this entire nation, not just New York, delivering facts and blunt assessments of the crisis, Donald Trump has lied, vilified, and expressed more concern over his TV ratings and if he’s number one on Facebook.

Then, you have idiot Republican governors following Donald Trump’s lead. To be a leader of a state, you need to acquaint yourself with facts and not just propaganda, dogma, or partisan bullshit. In Governor Brian Kemp’s case, he waited two months before learning the fact that asymptomatic people can spread the disease which finally made him shut down Georgia. But another fact he’s had at least three years to learn is that DONALD TRUMP IS A LIAR AND AN IDIOT!!!

Sorry, I yelled.

Donald Trump is a liar, an idiot, and he doesn’t care about you or anything that isn’t Donald Trump.

But it may not matter what party your governor belongs to since there are open borders between states. People can travel to New York from Georgia, where idiot Kemp has reopened the beaches, and bring the virus with them while getting sand in your carpet (and it gets everywhere).

Instead of shutting his state down, the governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves, decided all he had to do was pray that God would give Donald Trump wisdom. Again. Three years, fucko. No wisdom. There are some miracles God can’t perform. The governors in Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, and Missouri have responded similarly.

Which brings us to Florida…again.

Florida is one of the states hardest hit by the coronavirus, yet it took an extremely long time for Governor Ron DeSantis to shut the state down. He wouldn’t even shut down the beaches during spring break. Today, the churches are still open and God still hasn’t given Trump wisdom.

Florida is the third most populous state in the nation with 21 million people. DeSantis has proven he’s not up this moment in history. On Thursday, he said he’s considering reopening Florida’s schools. His reasoning? The coronavirus doesn’t affect kids.

He said, “This particular pandemic is one where I don’t think nationwide, there’s been a single fatality under 25. For whatever reason, it just doesn’t seem to threaten, you know, kids.”

And he backed it up with, “I think the data on that has been 100% consistent. I’ve not seen any deviation on that.”

As a governor of a state with 21 million people, he shouldn’t make statements like “I think the data has been 100% consistent” if he can’t say that with 100% accuracy. The thing is, the virus does infect kids.

The virus does kill kids. It HAS killed kids. DeSantis should know that. And even if it doesn’t kill them, they are carriers and can spread it to other people. In Florida, at least 1,200 cases have been in the 15-24 ranges.

Part of DeSantis’ strategy, or maybe his entire strategy, is to follow Trump on this. He said he based his decision to finally shut the state down on Trump’s somber “demeanor.” Again, he had three years to learn this (longer actually but I’m being generous and spotting him a few years for his disadvantage of being a Republican). Donald Trump lies and only thinks of Donald Trump. And, he tapes his hair to his head. What does that have to do with the coronavirus? Nothing but I like reminding you that he tapes his hair to his head.

So, it may not just be Republican governors who kill you. It may be a Republican president. By the time I’m done writing today’s blog, there may be more deaths from the coronavirus than lies from Donald Trump. That’s around 19,000 and it’s a huge number. And every day during his press conferences where he doesn’t provide anything new or substantial but talks for two hours about himself, both numbers grow (but his hair doesn’t).

If you live in Florida or any southern state with a Republican governor, I’m so sorry. And if you live in the United States of America, we’re all sorry.

The problem with electing a Trump cultist as your governor is that you’re stuck with a Trump cultist as your governor.

When Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was in Congress, he introduced legislation that required the Justice Department to report to Congress whenever any federal agency failed to enforce a law. This was in 2014 and a swipe at the Obama administration. It failed and he didn’t bother to reintroduce it during the Trump administration. I wonder why.

After Trump was in office and inflicting his corruption and con job on America, DeSantis voted in favor of a bill to strip all funding from the Mueller investigation. DeSantis adopted the Devin Nunes platform of protecting Donald Trump at all costs, no matter what he was accused of or how much evidence was apparent. For DeSantis, it’s Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump. He was also a member of the Fucknut Caucus, but they prefer to call it the “Freedom” Caucus.

When DeSantis ran for governor, he was endorsed by Trump and based his campaign on being the most fucknutty of all the fucknut Republicans in the primary. He ran commercials where he was teaching his children to say, “Make America great again” and building a racist wall out of lego blocks. He dressed his infant in a MAGA jumper in these commercials (which, I am assuming, was soon full of shit). He read “Art of the Deal” to his kids to prevent them from becoming intelligent adults. When asked, he couldn’t find one issue where he disagreed with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump had become a kingmaker in conservative politics, changing the Republican Party into the Donald Trump cult, and DeSantis became further proof of that after he won the primary. His credentials didn’t matter on statewide topics. All that mattered was that he burrowed deep up Donald Trump’s ass. In fact, he’s burrowed so deep up that ass, he allowed Floridians to die.

Governor (sic) Ron DeSantis refused to issue a stay-at-home order as other governors in the nation have done. Florida isn’t like Nebraska, where there are only five cases of coronavirus (detected so far). Florida isn’t even in the middle of states with verified cases. DeSantis is governor of the state with the fifth most cases. There are nearly 8,000 cases at this time and 100 deaths. Florida is the third-most populous state in the nation and it’s a contender to lead in coronavirus deaths.

Despite the rise of cases in Florida and the rest of the nation, DeSantis refused to declare a state of emergency. While all the other states with high cases of the coronavirus were implementing lockdowns, Florida went to the beach. Literally.

He refused to shut down the state as spring breakers stormed the beaches. He refused to shut down the beaches. He refused to issue a stay-at-home order, like New York and my state of Virginia have done. Here in Virginia, we have around 1,500 cases (and 34 deaths) yet our governor has taken it more seriously than Florida. Maybe that’s one reason we have fewer cases.

Why didn’t Ron DeSantis act sooner? Because he’s a Trump cultist.

It’s bad enough regular morons live and breathe everything Donald Trump says and then end up dying because they ingested fish tank cleaner after Dear Leader said something about chloride beating the virus. But a governor shouldn’t put his entire state at risk because of the stupid shit that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth.

Ron DeSantis should be serving the people of Florida, not just the Trump cult less enough, one person. Of course, that one person is Donald Trump.

DeSantis finally issued a stay-at-home order. What took him so long? Donald Trump didn’t take the virus seriously so the governor of Florida didn’t take it seriously. This is not my viewpoint. DeSantis said so. He explained his order by saying, “”When you see the President up there and his demeanor the last couple of days, that’s not necessarily how he always is.” Usually, he’s just racist and stupid. Before the order, he said he was following the White House on how he should proceed with the state.

Donald Trump spent a month denying and downplaying the virus. Governors like DeSantis, like their Dear Leader, put their citizens’ lives in danger.

Donald Trump boasted about banning travel from Europe…well most of Europe. He ignored the fact that people in the U.S. can cross state lines. So while one state has a lockdown, their neighbor may not. This doesn’t stop a virus. DeSantis has been unable to see that counties also have borders that people are free to cross.

The urban areas of Florida, where people tend to be more educated and less fucknutty, issued stay-at-home orders. But because their governor is in servitude to a fucking moron, he allowed the rest of the counties to carry on as if it was business as usual, thus infecting the entire state.

Florida isn’t the only state where the governor is willing to let his citizens die because of the way Donald Trump has behaved. Alabama, Texas, and Mississippi are still running wild. The governor of Mississippi’s biggest act to fight the virus is to pray for God to give Donald Trump intelligence. The governor of Mississippi does not have any intelligence.

Like Donald Trump isn’t qualified to handle a pandemic, neither is Ron DeSantis. The Florida Governor wants to be like Donald Trump. Congratulations, Ron. You suck just as much as Donald Trump. DeSantis, like Trump, was slow to react to the virus. He would rather serve the cult than serve his citizens. He would rather you die than upset Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has proven he shouldn’t be president and Ron DeSantis has proven he shouldn’t be Florida’s governor.

MAGA Monkey


cjones09032018

As the Republican nominee for Florida’s governorship, Ron DeSantis links himself to Trump as proof of his qualifications for the job. Using his children in television spots, teaching them how to build a racist wall and to say “make America great again,” you get the impression he may not be qualified to be a father.

DeSantis gushed over being endorsed by Trump, as though God himself came down from Mount Sinai to christen him. DeSantis has used his position as a congressman defending Trump on Fox News and joining other sycophants in Congress putting Trump over country by trying to derail the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling.

As Trump’s apprentice, DeSantis has figured out the racist wolf whistle and how to double down when called on it. Within 12 hours of his primary victory, DeSantis went on Fox News and said voters shouldn’t “monkey this up” by voting for his black opponent, Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum.

Even Fox News felt the need to take the extraordinary measure of issuing a rebuke later in the day that they don’t condone DeSantis’ language. Being a Trump acolyte, DeSantis refused to apologize, even if he was misinterpreted, and his campaign simply stated it was “absurd” to consider it racist. Of course, Trump sycophants also have a difficult time identifying any racism from Trump.

DeSantis is also a moderator, along with racist Virginia Senate nominee Corey Stewart, of a racist Tea Party group on Facebook. Shortly before his announcement for the governor’s race, DeSantis accepted a paid trip to attend a conference of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Palm Beach consisting of racist speakers, like Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, and the founder of Proud Boys, Gavin McInnes. The Horowitz group and Proud Boys have been labeled as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Running on a pro-Trump platform is now a requirement for Republican primaries, but it may cripple candidacies in general elections. Racism and a nationalistic platform don’t sell as well for the general public as it does Republican voters.

While Republicans say the Democrats’ only position is anti-Trump and will impeach if they gain control of Congress, a vote for the GOP is a vote against the rule of law, checks and balances, and democracy.

It’s not so much monkeys I’m worried about. It’s the knuckle-dragging Neanderthals.
