Anyone who happens to follow my blog, or happens upon it by accident, will notice I don’t have any one singular theme, although I do a lot of things from a humorous point of view. But this year things are a little different.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had a bit of a writing slump with some serious writer’s block — going on about 10 years now. I’ve managed to write a handful of poems, but nothing major. Then this political cycle in the U.S. started. It seems my muse is currently disguised as Donald Trump.
I’ve never cared about Donald Trump prior to his running for the Republican Party’s presidential nominee. His life and business practices didn’t run in my information circles. Next thing I know, I’m following him along his haphazardly self-lain mine field of a political run for something that he’s uniquely unqualified for. My political ideologies skew Democrat/Liberal, but I see just value in fiscal conservatives. Not Republican, per se, but there’s nothing wrong with doing great things for everyone if you can spend on it smartly. I, by no means, believe the current Republican Party of the U.S. is what it used to be. It’s full of the worst kind of politicians (spiteful, and if you don’t believe it just look up Senator Mitch McConnell’s public statements when President Barack Obama was elected – that the Republican’s number one job was to make Obama a one-term president), idiotic (really too many to count, but think Affordable Health Care Act and Benghazi), and so far to the religious right that it’s surprising they haven’t fallen off the flat earth.
So Donald Trump has become my TrumpSpeak muse. He’s immensely fun to TrumpSpeak, especially when all I have to do is base it off of what he’s actually done in public. I don’t have to make up any of the circumstance. Satirical fun at it’s best.
