"Pretending The World Will Return To Normal"

Phat chance! Phish phophy! Bull Stool!
And Folks… Leave politics da phuuck…
out of this discussion! Not one human
life… is worth you, or any other mfer'
the opportunity to make a bit of coin!
However, if that; is what you truly feel
is correct… making bank on the deaths
of any other citizen… then phuuck you
and every one of your entire families
history back to the beginning of your
blood kin! Read me you phuucking idiots!
And IAM putting this out to that squeeze box
Donald J. Trump!
You Donald J. Trump… "rightly selected"
President of "These" United States
by a minimal, simply tiny handed, majority
of bent and twisted women and whatevers!
You Donald J. Trump… who just this evening
showed a "card of humaneness" when you
mentioned that you, did not agree with one
of our state's governors about the issue of
"opening up" that dumb asp wholes citizens
to potentially infuriate the "virus Sars-CoV-2"
allowing "it, " our "Public Enemy Number 1" a
‘freed pass' to continue to schist off its offspring
as it wills! Some truly stupid schist that! Phuucking
pasty asp, confederate phuuck; that fool! Treating his
‘owned' kin likin they were, sharecroppers; on his spread!
How the phuuck civil-war era more could an ape/donkey/asp
be? Whomever, the phuuck you are, dumb sepoy… phuuck you
and all of your relations, and have a warm, nasty; taste-o-covid
on me! This me, digressing off the point is becoming somewhat
more fun, as "WE" ever so politely return to that point!
Pretending! That this neo-world could ever be returned
to that idiocy held and operated previously to some
fool playing with genes! Nature… our Mother Nature
would not do something so stupid! What occurs
with educated human beings when you offer each
a bit of extra cash? Yea! you got it! Dumbed down to
down low status never had nothings but debt and meth!
Not implying that each does chose meth… simply metaphor!
Ya'll third grade reading and comprehending americants
get the gist of that last few lines? What happens when
"the system of capitalism" or ‘predatory purposed same'
is stamped into a ‘p.o.s.' "blind mullet" ‘low brow'
mistake of birth, bit of S.T.P. dander? You get a
Red State voter! "Re-bub-licants"! Just a touch
under those "Dumbed-down-katzs" who can
not, for their very lives… get any traction
on any positive political actions… which
would make any difference to what a
"Crap" load of losers they already are!
"re-bub-licants" and "dumbed-down-katzs"
What a Phuucking mess!
Making ‘Phophy' all over D.C.!
Just how can all of those elected
officials squat to play with their wii'?
Or whatever other bit-o-tech each of
them uses to schist out all over their owned
constituents! And some insipidly ignorant fools
all of their constituents are truly exposing themselves
to be! Dumb asp wholes all of these and theirs' and them'!
WHO do you call a thief? A phuucking thief! And what
do all thieves do… thieves thieve… thieves
thrive on theft… theft is against the laws…
but do any of the thieves the constituents elect
ever get publicly and rudely arrested and tried and
