Strawberries… and Nuts

25 Jan

There is a scene in the fictional naval drama, The Caine Mutiny, in which Captain Queeg  becomes convinced that missing strawberries from the officer’s mess were stolen by a sailor who had made a duplicate key to the food storage locker that he then used for the theft. The Captain then orders a ship wide search in an effort to find the duplicate key so as to prove his theory and bring the thief to justice.

It is later revealed to the audience that Ensign Harding had already informed Queeg that the mess boys had eaten the strawberries, and that Queeg had threatened to revoke Harding’s leave if he revealed that knowledge to anyone else, while the Captain continues the search for what he knows to be a non-existent key.

Meanwhile  here in the real world drama of the American Presidency, President Donald Trump had this to say via Twitter:

“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and….even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”

He is making this claim and hoping to pursue this investigation despite an overwhelming consensus among state officials, election experts and politicians that voter fraud in the United States is rare…and that no evidence of widespread voter fraud has ever been found in the history of U.S. elections.

And yet despite having been declared the winner of the Presidency with 306 electoral votes, President Trump is still convinced that 5 million illegal aliens and dead citizens not only illegally cast votes in November’s election but also that all of those illegal votes were cast against him!…and thereby costing him a victory in the popular vote… which he lost to his opponent, Hillary Clinton, by 3 million.

5 million illegal votes would be an amount equal to almost 4% of  all of the votes cast in November’s election! That’s a lot of dead aliens! Or dead voters! Or Illegal voters. Or illegal aliens!… And they all voted for Ms. Clinton?! Not one dead/illegal/alien vote for Mr. Trump… who only carried some states by a mere few thousand votes?

For the sake of all that is sane, President Trump’s crazy crusade for illegal voters, which he has to know is a bogus one, lest he actually be insane… by definition… could only lead to his undoing should his insane quest somehow succeed…because he has already won the Presidency!!!!  What has he got to win???

White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, has since confirmed that President Trump continues to believe that  millions of illegal immigrants (and/or dead people) voted in the Nov. 8th  election even though he also could not provide any evidence to support those beliefs. He did however go on to say that although no White House investigation is at yet officially planned… “maybe we will … anything is possible.”

Holy crap… and strawberries… on a cracker!

    While we are wondering about a lot of things, here is a piece from ‘Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin’, it’s a poem :
    Jonah Franklin
    and his wife
    lie here interred.
    They lived lovingly together in wedlock
    fifty-five years.
    Without an estate,or any gainful employment,
    By constant labor and industry,
    With God’s blessing,
    They maintained a large family
    comfortably,
    and brought up thirteen children
    and seven grandchildren
    reputably.
    From this instance, reader,
    Be encouraged to diligence in thy calling,
    And distrust not Providence.
    He was a pious and prudent man;
    She, a discreet and virtuous woman.
    Their youngest son,
    In filial regard to their memory,
    Places this stone.
    J.F born 1655, died 1744
    A.F born 1667, died 1752,___ 85.

    I finished reading the autobiography this morning.
    There are many things I learned from Benjamin Franklin. If you haven’t already read it, it’s a book to read for everyone. 🙂
