The Dark Horses are Running

You guys go ahead and run, you can all be a hack, I’ll be quite comfortable NOT sharing my Super-PAC.

The Dark Horses Running

Dark Horses running

They were chomping at the bit

When the flood gates were opened

Out they all came lickety-split


The first to charge forward

Was Donald the Trump

Who thinks he will ace this race

And leave all the others in a dead heat slump


The Donald charged full speed ahead

Thinking the others slow in the head

With Cruz nipping at his hooves

The Donald’s ego is fed


Hillary will not make it out of the gate

The Donald said

As she whizzed right past, surging ahead

Scroll to Continue

Then he felt the “Bern” as Sanders’s dust he ate


Chris Christie is yelling

“GET OUTTA MY WAY”

Or I will close all your bridges

And make you all pay


Jeb Bush says he is his brother’s keeper

At least of his policies

And he promises to take us to war

With his brother’s ideologies


Benghazi, Benghazi, the baby is still kicking

You can hear Fiorina say, even though

The Benghazi Commission is funding Rubio

And the kicking baby is proven to be a false video


Cruz pledges allegiance to his country of birth

He will give them all the land of America’s earth

For the Keystone XL pipeline to lay

Still questioning Obama’s birth-place today


The dark horses are down to two

The Donald is starting to spew

Look at Bill Clinton

If you think Hillary is for you


I demand Hillary's e-mails made public

And show them to you, and Putin can have a peek too

When I am President,

I will tell the world what I think of her and what I think of YOU!


What Cruz thinks about America

What Cruz thinks about America

Huckabee, Santorum, Kasich, Pataki and Paul

All running neck and neck next to last place

Hoping to be in this race for the long haul

Jindal can’t keep up the pace as he dropped out of the race


Perry is out of the running

Unable to continue the pace

As Walker is scratched for

His Super-PAC sake


One dark horse will stagger across the finish line?

Drunk on the power of leaving the others behind.


The Race Is On

Breast fed, then golden spoon fed, possibly until the age of seven

Exquisite food, exotic feast, yo mama, sweet heaven

Private school, military no less, Vietnam, no way Jose

Deferred while planning Trump Tower, olay

Married first time, ditched her when she turned thirty

Children born, handsome son and a daughter, kinda pretty

Married again two months after child was born

Ditched her for a younger babe who was foreign

That's life, that's what people say

— always exploring a.k.a. Ruby Fuller

I guess they refused to be groomed like a piece of clay

Back on his feet, feeling like a king

Running the race for the white house, dismissing both the right and left wing

It's as if he's saying, " I'm gonna roll myself in a big ole ball and fly

All you little people BORING, so sad all you do is cry

The vets must surely love the Don

His millionaire friends gave millions for their loving care. Is it a con?

Early voting starts next week Tuesday. As you know, I pretty sure Putin will reinstall Trump in the presidency because Trump has been a literal dream come true for Putin. But we must all go out and vote just the same in case they bother to count them.

A judge has overruled our governor regarding the drop-off boxes for mail-in votes, but I plan to go in person. You know that the governor ordered that there be only one drop-off box in every county, right? Anything to discourage voting.

The dark horse in this election (IMHO) is Trump. Dark as in evil. I won't believe Trump really has Covid-19 unless he dies from it. Not wishing bad things on him, but sometimes they happen anyway. I hope he loses and is gone soon, but beyond that he can live a long and healthy life -- maybe in prison where you or I would be if we had done all the crimes he has.

Hope you and Walter are staying healthy and safe from the virus that seems to be ballooning again. Blessings, dear friend . . .

Turns out Bloomberg didn't last very long, nor did his promise to continue running ads less than flattering to Trump even if he wasn't the Democratic nominee.

I guess the dark horse in this election will be the vice-presidential nominee for the Democrats as that is the only person yet to be named. Personally, I favor Tammy Duckworth.

Seems like Mike Bloomberg is the dark horse in this presidential race, so far at least. I've read his polls are rising and pretty quickly. He wouldn't be my first choice as he's basically a misogynist and a bit racist besides. I do like the ads he's running though and I appreciate his willingness to support whoever the Democratic candidate ends up being even if it isn't Bloomberg.

Hope all is well with you. Blessings, dear friend . . .

Several states are refusing to put Republican opposition (to Trump) candidates on their ballots. The corruption in our government is unbridled, and so bad that it will be a wonder if the government of this country will still be in existence as we have known it, at the end of 4 more years.

Some of the Democrats that were initially running for president have dropped out. Having 20 some people running all at once seemed silly to me. None of them got much attention as a result.

I hope there's a dark horse or 2 on the GOP side. Trump might be dumped if a strong opponent gets into the Republican primary.

Hope all is well with you. Blessings dear friend . . .

It's so long until the election next year, almost a year and a half, that much can, and likely will change before then. Whether there will be any dark horses is something to think about, but for sure there are a lot of horses. Hopefully the Republicans will primary the president. Not likely, but it sure would be cool if they did.

Hope all is well with you dear friend. Blessings always . . .

Seems like the presidential election starts earlier and earlier every time. Still nearly 2 years before the next election and lots of people have already thrown their hats in the ring.

Since 'they' have proven that the Russians swayed the last election and basically installed Trump illegally, I think we should have another election right now, within the next 30 days, and Trump be forbidden to compete. Indeed, he needs to get free room and board for a while, maybe for life, for his part in helping the Russians defraud our country in the most recent election.

This government shutdown is unbelievable. Perhaps a mental institution would be the best place for Trump. All I know for sure is that we need to get him out of office and away from anything and anywhere he can continue to damage/destroy this country.

I've read that some people believe the general public should start having demonstrations, demanding Trump's removal. I wonder if that will come to fruition before this whole debacle is resolved . . .

Blessings dear friend. Take care.
