I’m dreading a Soylent Green Xmas

Well, the Repugnants and our dear Orange Overlord got their putrid way. They voted themselves a lovely enormous tax dodge and pay raise, at the rest of our expense, and then they have the unmitigated nerve to smirk and tell us it’s a bigly Christmas gift we should all be glad to receive.

Yeah, right. Because Reaganomics worked so bitchin’ great back in the 80s. Because supply-side trickle-down policies did so much to boost the economy, with millionaires and billionaires eagerly spinning around and reinvesting their windfalls into their community and the economy.

And if you buy that baloney, you fully deserve the gigantic boosts in your taxes and the Draconian cuts in needful government services that will be required to pay down the cost of giving undeserving ingrates money they’ll smugly hoard in Grand Cayman, Switzerland, the Canary Islands…

We’ve sat through this disaster movie before. It was an utter nightmare. It took painful effort of both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to try to clean up after it. We should have learned from the reigns of error of Reagan and both Bushes and made it damn near impossible for our Tangerine Toddler Tyrant to compound them.

The new year 2018 doesn’t promise any happiness. We’re being dragged into an oligarchy and anyone who dares to complain is chided as being “un-American” and/or “anti-business” and/or “socialist.”

“Soylent Green” was supposed to be a dystopian science fiction novel/movie, not a documentary or an instructional film. We’re now on the verge of living it. Happy Friggin’ Holidays.
