100 days of Trump

100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news. Sometimes it is funny. That the president is like the Monopoly man, a 30s New Yorker cartoon lampooning the rich, or Flagstaff (?) (Groucho Marx role in Horse Feathers). Then it is imposing, an imposition, barometer pressure oppressively rising - stormy weather. Reading about the tax plan, to make LLC lives even easier - the ones who tear up the city, cut down the trees, put people in boxes, and use your money to turbo charge their life style. And, as has happened to me, suggest they are holier than you because they panned gruel at a food line one morning as cameras snapped. Now, the New York developer is in the vault, throwing dollars like custard pies with relish, and it becomes pain funny bone pain, maybe, but pain.

We may have to go to war in Korea again, unfinished business to finish, and fear. Shooting hibernating bears a problem? - we can make it happen! 100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news. On the other side of this for me is the harp music playing crazily as someone close is dying. Hard times come again once more. 100 days of Trump make me want to stop reading the news.

I think Groucho was Firefly (Rufus T.), not Flagstaff
