Recently I asked my Facebook friends to provide me advice on how I should handle a request for a replacement cheque of $100 that I provided a right wing friend of mine when Donald Trump was declared president-elect of the United States.
Thank you for all your advice on how to respond for the request for me to replace the $100 cheque.
After I sent the $100 cheque to my hyper conservative friend, he failed to deposit it and left it in his shirt pocket which his wife put in the washing machine and dryer thus destroying it.
I dismissed outright the suggestion from another elderly conservative, Trump-loving friend (well more elderly than me LOL), who wanted me to immediately re-write the cheque and send it to the unfortunate fellow whose wife laundered the cheque in the wash.
To all my middle of the road and lefty friends who said I paid my debt and it is his problem that the cheque was destroyed in the wash ha ha ha ha ha…the symbolism is drenched in comedy. LOL.
As an admirer of Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon McKenzie King who on the issue of a Canadian wartime conscription during World War 2 utter these very funny words: (part of the evolution of the Canadian comedy tradition, I guess) — my approach will be be pragmatic and flexible.
“Conscription but not necessarily conscription,”said PM King.
So in paraphrasing King, I say unto the the winner of the wager: “Re-issuing the cheque, but not necessarily re-issuing the cheque”
Here is my email to his wife with my proposed solution.
“Haha ha a ha ha ha ha ha LOL.
This must be God’s displeasure at the incomprehensible results of the US election leading to the so-called victory of the satanic Mr. Trump.
How else can one explain the comedy over the destruction of the cheque that was my payment in full for the $100 wager I lost to your husband.
And the irony that the cheque was destroyed while his shirt was being washed and laundered clean.
As if God was saying “wash away the filth that is Donald Trump.”
Trump is a loser, whom 65 million Americans rejected, but despite only gaining 63 million votes – two million less than Hillary Clinton, the undemocratic US ‘Lector College declared Trump, President.
(The ‘Lector College kills democracy as surely as Hannibal Lecter killed people in Silence of the Lambs).
Doesn’t the Book of Revelation say something about the end of times being near when the insane rule over the good, sane people of the earth? LOL!
Donald Trump is the first, openly insane presidential candidate to win the Presidency.
Some of us remember the insane candidacy of Lyndon Larouche. Mr. Larouche who espoused much of the same philosophy as the Trumpster never won in the 1980s and 1990s.
I must also note, that the 2016 Election was also tainted by the massive and unprecedented incursion of the FBI into the election on Trump’s behalf a week prior to voting – falsely claiming Clinton was embroiled in Anthony Weiner’s emails. And then saying oops…we were wrong – she wasn’t.
Let me think about whether I should replace the cheque.
Certainly if I do re-issue it, it will be after the recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, that will be triggered by allegations of cyber hacking of the computer based voting systems in those states.
Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate, has already filed for a recount in Michigan on Friday. She now has the funds to officially demand a recount in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Also, I will require your husband to sign an agreement/acknowledgement and mail it to me before I possibly send him the replacement cheque.
That is of course unless the recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania reverse the totals thus giving those states’ electoral college votes to Hillary Clinton, who in those circumstances will be declared President elect.
In that case of course your husband will send me the cheque.
In the attachment I have included several sections from Harry Hurt III’s 1993 book on Trump and Ivana titled “Lost Tycoon”. The sections describe Donald Trump’s brutal sexual assault and rape of his wife at the time– Ivana Trump.
You can not say this book is some false news that was cooked up to defeat Trump in this election, like the James Comey false allegations and all the Ezra Levant and Breitbart bullshit your husband wants me to read in his support of Trump.
These facts in Harry Hurt’s book have stood the test of time and are true. Trump has had 23 years to sue the writer for libel, but he didn’t because the truth will trump Trump and his denials that he raped Ivana.
Ivana filed a deposition in court in 1992 saying she was raped by Donald Trump in 1989. She also told author Harry Hurt III the same information in the interviews, Hurt conducted with Ivana. Hurt also interviewed Trump himself, Trump’s dad Fred and others in researching the book.
Afterwards, Trump got a restraining order on Ivana because their pre-nuptial agreement said she could not disclose the details of Trump’s business and personal life.
Fearing that the courts would take everything away from her, as Donald wanted as a relief from the breach of the pre-nup, Ivana watered down her allegations, but in no way recanted or denied them.
As the Lost Tycoon was going to be released to bookstores, Donald Trump sent a notice to the publisher and demanded that the insert which is included below, be attached to the book.
The notice reworded Ivana’s claim of rape and used more weasely words to describe what still amounted to spousal rape.
I will ask your husband to sign an acknowledgement of all of Donald Trump’s business failures, misogyny, racism and sexual assaults on women beginning with his rape of Ivana.
I also want your husband to acknowledge that Trump was a major business loser, having gone bankrupt six times and someone who played fast and loose with other people’s money to the point where the US banking industry considered him to be financial poison.
That is why Trump had to go to billionaires like Vladimir Putin, and others in Kazakhstan, China and India for loans. And now they own him.
Harry Hurt provides a 1993 snap shot of so-called billionaire Trumps’ financial troubles.
Hurt said Trump’s value in 1993 was approximately, – $350 million; that is negative $350 million, if he was forced to liquidate all his highly leveraged properties to repay his loans, bonds and debentures.
I will ask your husband to acknowledge that Trump is a racist who coddles the KKK (will we soon see an invitational only cross burning at the Trump White House Lawn — Whites Only????)
If your husband signs, seals and delivers the agreement/acknowledgement I will gladly re-write the laundered cheque.
However, if he refuses to sign the acknowledgement, then I will refuse to re-write the cheque, which God destroyed as a sign of displeasure at the election of that cretin Trump.
You should not feel bad for unwittingly destroying the $100 cheque in the wash, as you were only working on God’s behalf — deus ex machina – the hand of God.
Ha ha ha ha… wow…best $100 wager I ever made…It will provide me a lifetime of hilarity.
Did I say hilarity? I meant to say “Hillary-ity”.
