Bleach, Anyone?

May 4, 2020

Lots of jokes, and good ones at that, have followed Trump’s suggestions about injecting bleach and ultraviolet rays.

But really, there is not a damn thing funny about the total lack of responsibility being shown by the ruling class.

Why haven’t they told somebody to “get the hook” and drag him off the stage?

He is still there because the people that put him there think he is useful. And we’re not talking about the working poor, or the right-wing workers and middle class, not about the 30-some percent of those being tricked by him.

If he is still there, it’s because his bull, his misinformation, his right-wing divisive tactics, are helpful to the ruling class; helpful to keep people confused and upset and focused on wrong solutions like waiting for an election.

And getting more working people to understand that workers will have to GET UP and reject this circus, is what it will take for us to change this society.
