Trump Against Conservatives

What are some differences
between post-millennial Trumpism
and pre-millennial Republicanism?

I know…I know!
Republicans used to be fiscal conservatives
but now support a one trillion dollar deficit
per unaffordable health and safety care year,

Expanded deficit spending
despite taking more from not so rich
so super-rich corporations and family dynasties
can invest less in public responsibilities
and conservational authorities.

OK.
What other differences do you see?

I know…I know!!!
Republicans used to be family moral conservatives
but now nominate candidates
who molest women and then brag about it
while employed through tax investor dollars
disproportionately extracted from lower-middle
and poor shackled families,
and candidates who may sexually assault young Southern girls
and expect their liberated from traditional family values voters
to hold their nose
and vote for them anyway.

Because a fetus
is presumed to become a heterosexual baby,
except when things work out wrong somehow,
but a penis
is just another predictable bad boy penis.

That sounds a bit Boys Will Be Boys judgmental,
and maybe anti-Southern?
But, OK,
what else do you see
or hear
or smell, I suppose, possibly,
as Trumpism
antithetical to traditional Republican conservatism.

I know…maybe?

Doesn’t healthy conservatism
require wealthy conservation of nutritional values,
and not so much toxic disvalues?

If so,
then isn’t a real world conservative position
regarding climate pathology
and proactive health assurance
dwindling through MADness
pathologically degenerating economic
and ecological
and political
and sociological bad health trends,
To disinvest away from denial of growing chaotic climates
and to embrace restoring health for truly therapeutic traditions
of societies and species?

I believe you refer to Old School Conservation.
Like,
thou must not harvest grace
you did not plant and financially support with gratitude
for talents invested in you
by MotherEarth’s past climates
of pertinently trusting compassion.

But,
you respond to my Trumpism v Republicanism question
with questions
which in itself seems a conservative position
compared to denying questions
of how best to conserve integrity
among a healthing society,

Voicing urgent concerns
about unmediated exploitation of punishing mendacity,
expecting conservatives
to continue voting
to liberate this piracy of healthy valuables
from relatively poor
toward triumphal rich
Pharisees of Secularizing Zealous Greed.

Do you think
that could have been
a Trumpian violin
Plutocratic Nero fiddled and twittered about
and spoke liberally
in his denial
of international health and climate care
sleep?
While hurricanes flooded Texas
and Florida
and Puerto Rico.
And while California,
and sometimes parts of Colorado
and Arizona
too often burned?

Is that the bedtime story
your fading grandchildren will read
about your conservatively intended vote
for their health and defensive climate safety?

Do Trumpians
become a non-party,
an Operatic Tragedy
without any conservative portfolio remainder?

According to the original Trumpian campaign,
this CEO promised to follow along
toward conserving denialism of facts
and expanding nihilism of whimsical foolishness
defined as whatever is not liberty
or freedom
or cooperative investment of any kind
in those who have not supported Trump Aristocracy products
and supremely super good job
real estate bought and sold-out services
for those better off
and their free for a quick grab wives,

Who best stick to their expected denial of unfortunate facts business.
Follow Trumpian patriarchal lines and lies
of pathologically rich pedigree,
and not bother their pretty blond and blue-eyed heads
about conserving healthy
multicultural
polypathic
polyphonic
Win-Win
extending family climate values,
by easing off further over-investment
in too-liberal disvalues
to invest in healthy climates for all God’s Creations,

Conservationally speaking.

Voting Booth Conversation

My African-American
young adolescent daughter,
since she was age five
needing a therapeutic home and family,
with Oppositional Disorder
and deviantly diverse neural-cognitive communication patterns,
would have voted for Donald Trump if she could.

In large part,
I suspect and fear,
because she is obsessively attracted
to what and whom she knows is bad for her.

Bad medicine.
Toxic sights and sounds and feelings.
Poisons for all sensory receptors,
Mutually oppositional reiterative disorder
perpetually trading barbs of blame and shame,
games she so loves to hate to play,
with tendencies toward bipolar disarray.

Why does she seem to prefer older
straight
blond boys?
Probably because she identifies herself as a younger
brown-skinned
curly-headed
(in several ways and means)
princess-diva-girl.

Anyway,
she helped me vote for our town’s Mayor,
and School Board,
and Propositions about borrowing money
to pay it back later
out of her real-estate and business tax investments.

What she thought would be more interesting investments
for her future,
rather than bridges,
and firetrucks,
and improved highways,
she thought more gardens would be nicer,
and more nutritional in the long run.

As for Mayor,
she told me to vote for “Donald.”

Well, honey,
bad news.
None of these candidates is a Donald.

I didn’t say Donald
I said vote for Dora.
(Did I mention her speech therapy,
and lack thereof?)

(Did I mention I’m deaf as a post
and old enough to be her Great Gay Grandfather?)
Honey,
I don’t think writing in “Dora”
would be a good idea
because she’s not one of the choices here.

Well,
just don’t vote for Donald Trump again.

Never mind about the “again,”
as if I ever had,
or would,
But,
what came between you and your love for Donald?

He is against my mental health
and my mental health right
to live in a good community
without fear of automatic
or even not-automatic
gunfire.

You’ve been reading my blog again
haven’t you?

No!
Why would I read anyone
not smart enough to write in Dora for Mayor?

Political Short-Circuits

A problem with fundamentalist short-circuits
is their Left-dominant tendencies
over RightBrain polypathic-polyphonic resonant feelings.

Fundamentalism shrinks Left-RightBrain Both-And
WinWin ecopolitical thinking,
strategizing,
democratizing,
domesticating,
creolizing.

For example,
imagine your nationalistic domestic policies
to pit those who victoriously have
against marginalized and criminalized lepers,
parasites, really,
in your not-so-humble,
vaguely fascist,
opinion,
are not going so well
as you might have Republican conservationally predicted.

You need something
you know everyone, of importance, will champion,
so you point out that transgenderal confusions
are not appropriate to military-industrial’s bottom-line
compete unto death
monoculturing focus.

Transgenders must, then, be an unnecessary economic liability
and political loyalty risk
because they aren’t decisively anything fundamentally patriotic,
much less appropriately straight patriarchal.

Unfortunately,
for the fundamentalist Either-Or nonthinker,
without richly constant and diverse healthy relationships
with any ecopolitically multicultural depth,
what might sound like a political big win
over little inconsequential losers,
breaks down with actual one-on-one experience.

The anti-transgender agenda
breaks down because too many sergeants
and corporals,
lieutenants leaking counter-factuals
to admiring admirals
and generalist generals
about the long history
of incredibly excellent military-industrialized service
individual transgender personnel
in the thousands
have delivered in the past,
unlike a dysfunctional bicameral Congress
and a sociopathological White House.

Transgender co-intelligence
tends to understand
cooperative media economies
and political persuasion.
That’s a bicameral nest of honey bees
you don’t want to fundamentalistically mess with,
because they will make you look politically stupid
and economically bereft of moral integrity.

It’s rather like believing health-assurance climates
of care-receiving
and for mutual healthcare-giving
is just a Democratic women’s eco-survival issue
when your own nationalistic patriarchal prostate
is growing in a cancerous viral,
self-imploding,
wu-wei.

Stable Diversity

Nature loves diversity
just as air abhors a vacuum.

Stability lives in staged apposition with diversity
as Yang predicts Yin,
as time moving stably forward
predicts time imagined more diversely
as the history of regeneratively slow-evolving Earth.

Stability, without conjoining diversity,
is a highly subjective attribution
when blanketed across a lifespan,
when covering a generation of interdependent lifespans,
even when defining a genetically stable species
across many re-stabilizing generations.

What is stable within a life
is what is reliably conserved,
like a heart beat,
and breathing,
digesting and eliminating,
consumer and producer functions,
economic and political forms of conserving balance,
cooperative survival of the best interdependence
more than competitive Win/Lose frictions,
or all thoughts and feelings of stability
disappear.

Conserving stability over a lifetime
is a highly subjective attribution,
perhaps too broad and sweeping,
too global and universal
too totalitarian
too elitist biased
to be more microscopically accurate
across any one lifespan.

For example,
the growth rate of an infant
could not be stably conserved
throughout an eight-decade human life span,
nor could the constant two-year old questions, Why?
conserve stability
in a four-decade middle-age climate
of chronic crisis
about half-empty ecopolitical ego-stability.

Adolescent adventures in gender-related competitions
over multigenerational cooperations
could not stably conserve
a marriage
or a nation
or a planet
across a regenerative trans-speciating lifespan
of co-domesticating creolization,
democratization of shared wisdom,
health,
wealth.

I wonder if conserving stability
of bilateral mind,
and centering on stability with diversity body
more likely matriarchal than patriarchal,
oriented toward health and safety
across eight positive WinWin regenerations,
at eight-decades of humane life,
facing immanent individual ego-death,
could already be conservatively stabilizing
in the bicameral mindbody
of an infant child,
or even a stuck in adolescent competitions
patriarchal-dominant
nation?

Happy Republicans on PBS

I heard a Conservative consumer satisfaction survey on PBS yesterday, regarding President Trump’s performance in that role, to date.

So far, both his proletariat and bourgeois constituencies sound like they feel not ignored, and therefore newly happy and hopeful. One Republican woman almost twitterishly volunteered what was news to my Masters in Public Administration civil service ears: “The government’s job is to create a healthy business growth climate, and cut middle class taxes.”

I, a naive former graduate student, listening too much to PhD’s, apparently, had thought the role of government was to promote the regenerative health and happiness, prosperity and security of all the people at all times. Had I received the memo that we were now just a public sector investor in the proletariat business community, my job could have been so much easier, and even less satisfying!

But, more seriously, this has been the unashamed naked ¬†government vocational model for economic Conservatives, wearing the True Patriot Republican imprimatur, since the prior millennium–so I was shocked about the public exposure of such blatant reification of our cooperative health and safety purposes, but I knew it was probably rolling around in her head.

It does concern me that economic Conservatives who are themselves below median household and/or business-corporate income are feeling heard by President Trump during this his first week behind the desk of Executive Orders.

“Business” in plutocratically Elite WashingtonLand, is most accurately translated by Trumpian friends and extended corporate family, as short-term financial profit for owners of corporate interests with above median business income potential.

This is the same economic and political Conservative population that Marx called “bourgeois”, looking for evermore financially safe-harbored large-corporate financial-industrial-insurance-military income, and what Political Scientists would call the economic and politically empowered Elite. You and I are not they, and they are assuredly ¬†competitive WinLose evolutionary game strategists. Elite-Bourgeois economic Conservatives are our Patriotic Predators; and we are cast as the Loser NonElite Prey, regardless of our conservation of economic health, or progression of politically multicultural wealth, proclivities.

Here, then, are some ways that this economic Conservative is feeling both ignored, and very much not heard:

Building walls to keep out Central and South America is healthy Elite military-industrial subcontractor growth.

Building resistance walls to keep public investments from flowing into NonElite Health Care planning and service delivery is  only healthy for Elite insurance-financial investment sector growth potential, at my inflamed expense.

Raising taxes only for 12 million below-median taxpayers is also healthy Elite Republican growth of Washington subcontractor and military-industrial growth, and probably at my additional expense. And, the last I knew, by anyone’s definition this is not “lowering Middle Class taxes.”

President Trump’s version of economic Conservatism intends to ignore, and in fact further prey upon, both neglect and abuse, NonElite working class below-median income people, and our busyness, listening and watching Reality Shows, and cognitive-dissonantly tuning out Trump’s Predative UnReality Show.

Next time, be more careful which ecopolitical development side you vote against. This time, unwashed proletariats who still clean our own toilets, and yet enthusiastically voted for Trump, got the royal flush you were not expecting or hoping for, or even listening to as it unfolds before our mysteriously enthusiastic, hypnotized eyes.

His political business promotion is not the inclusive economic health you want, and have a right to expect. Healthy public governance cooperatively, bicamerally, supports everybody’s healthy busyness and regenerative play.

Another Nanny Walk

I already hear the Twittering Trumpers
and Trumpettes
in their unholy locker rooms
reducing the marching evolution of nurturing feminist matriarchs
to another whine,
too gooey,
shrill and screechy,
nagging nanny stroll away from True Patriarchal White Male empowerment.

Never minding Mother’s ecological sacred health
despite unfortunate economic risks of global holocaust pathologies
for our grandkids,
and their little sniveling co-dependent pets.

So let us not walk but march
in loud resonating silence.

Let us speak our claims for healthy presents
and pasts
and matriarchal networking
of and for cooperative future health investments,
yet also listen to our voiceless co-empathic silence,
together,
to gather all our therapeutic
iconic
MotherEarth powers of regeneration.

Let us both march through and around Washington’s squares,
yet also dance in twittering polypathic full-color circles
of sound
and color
and deep healthy ecosystemic nutritional sight.

Let us weep for impudent sons
competing for whom to grab next in smokey locker rooms,
yet also sing our anthems of multiculturing EarthMother love.

Let us lie down in deadly silent omission
of where our Business As Usual competing pathologies
will ominously unfold across each and every bicameral heart,
and also jump and shout our cooperative diastatic hopes,
polypathic faiths,
multiculturing loves
of health within
as without,
as humans
with divine MotherEarth;
ecotherapeutic potential
marching together,
not flying apart
to vote ever again
against Earth’s matriarchal potential for fully inclusive integrity.

Singing and dancing,
dreaming and listening,
marching in mutual mindful silence
until every sister
and her brother
remembers Never Again
Never Again
Never Again
will male supremacist locker room talk
prevail over matriarchal networks
of ecopolitically cooperative global health and safety.

EverMore
Matriarchs march
to conserve Earth’s healthy nurturing progress.

NeverAgain
mere competitions for Electoral College majorities.
EverMore
cooperative economic ecologos of Matriarchal EnWombed Collegiality,
nutritionally enriched consensus.

NeverAgain
conservative matriarchs
not also progressive feminists
for Earth’s political health
as polypathic multicultural full-spectrum safety,
primally known in and through Mother’s Sacred Womb
of interdependent diastasis,
cooperative permaculturing climax.

EverMore
Twitterish Trumpers are left too egocentrically behind,
balding blond old white rugged rough-rider men
without the Elder Wisdom their mothers and great grandmothers
could Full through New Moon share light with them
outside their smoke-filled emptying night timed echoing tombs
of cancerous LeftBrain Dominant klanish locker rooms.

Never Again
Never Again
speak of underpaid undernourished nagging Nanny Walks
as if each Nanny
were not also our Mother’s sacred Sisters,
marching where our patriarchal footprints of history
would healthier fall
to rise Earth’s nurture within-without again.

Revisiting Extended Family Values

I began reading Jane Anna Gordon’s “Creolizing Political Theory”
from the back toward the front,
as usual,
because if I appreciate where this narrative journey will end,
then I probably will find we start off with similar questions
of economic and political urgency right now.

And, also as is my dialogical custom,
I am working my way through George Lakoff’s “The Political Mind,”
this morning starting his chapter on Family Values.

Here is what happened to my parenting political minds,
both the LeftBrain rational-deductive dominant,
and the RightMind matriarchal-familial nurturing,
cooperative Yin-nonWestern,
as Gordon might prefer,
and seems to conclude:

“Dallmayr…warned first against ‘imperialist modes of theorizing,’
in which one portion of the [competing rather than cooperating]globe
would monopolize the production of hared means and practices
that should ‘only arise from lateral [Right is bilateral, while Left is vertical-hierarchically deductive, empowered exegetically from above] interaction,
[co-mentored, co-operative] negotiation,
and [struggling with but not violently/aggressively against] contestation among different,
historically grown cultural [evolutionary compete/cooperate] frameworks.’
In addition,
he advanced,
worldly [familial-matriarchal-domestic] theory would emerge out of a middle course [Taoism: wu wei = MidWay, in-between]
between the methods of [geosystemic] abstract generalists
and of narrow [biological ecosystemic] specialists,
neither through seeking ‘indiscriminate [yin] assimilation’
nor radically untranslatable [yang-independent] otherness.”

“…[A]s evident in the instances of Aristotle,
Machiavelli,
Baron de Montesquieu,
Charles-Louis de Secondat,
and Alexis de Tocqueville,
[Gregory Bateson,
Buckminster Fuller,
Albert Einstein,
Teilhard de Chardin
George Lakoff]
theory transpires out of journeying to alien political [yet extended familial] worlds
that stir a critical [empathic] sense
of the peculiarity of one’s own [monoculturing] institutions,
challenging their seeming [exegetical] inevitability
by nurturing [new bilaterally eisegetical, polypathic] self-understanding
that grounds an enlivened [RightBrain] sense
of [yang-cooperative with yin-integrative] possibility.”

“Euben stresses that comparative politial theory cannot rely upon
and should endeavor to challenge
any perception of [extended familial] cultures
as radically distinct
or hermetically sealed.
Countering a dangerous tendency also comparing Western [nonEastern?]
with non-Western philosophical writing
fosters the misperception that these traditions developed in parallel [silos],
independently of one another
[rather than also containing mutually empathic interdependencies]–
Euben focuses on ambivalent treatments of Western modernity
in Arab thought
illuminating internal [both/and] fissures in both that belie their presumed [exegetical ecopolitical] opposition
[as more eisegetically appositional tensegrity (B. Fuller)].”

“If historical designations [LeftBrain deductive labels and frames]…cannot simly be dispensed with,
since they are forms of represenation embedded in [RightBrain] mythologies
that anchor our [ecoconscious] understanding…
and, however imperfectly,
remain short-hand for [extended familial] constellations
of [ecosystemic] sources,
issues,
and [ecopolitical] methods of argumentation [acclimation (G. Bateson)]
that while constructed through post factos [symbiotic] agendas
produce family resemblances and recognizable attributes…,
they still obscure messy [chaotic, unresolved, dissonant]
and interpenetrating histories [which are also potentially nutritional herstories,
understories within our larger ecological MotherEarth frame].”

“After all, argues Euben,
the possibility of engaging in comparative [familial] discussions
is a function not of radical [competitive-deductive] difference
but mutual [cooperative-inductive] indebtedness of worlds
not juxtaposed as [theoretically, paradigmatically] discrete.
In the case of ‘the West’ [nonEast cultural dominance]
and ‘Islam,’
both are fundamentally shaped by Semitic [patriarchal, from-above universal empowerment] traditions,
texts considered classical within Europe [extended families]
were reintroduced to its readers through preserved Arabic [extended family Wisdom Literature] translations,
and the Golden Age of Islamic thought
was defined by efforts to forge syncretic [YHWH patriarchal] fusions of Greek and [pre]Islamic [Arabic ecopolitical familial-tribal] resources.”

And here’s what happened while continuing my Family Economic and Political Values discourse
with Lakoff:

“Why do certain people,
most of them self-identified as conservatives
[of monoculturally supremacist heterosexuality]
find certain acts of love–
premarital,
extra-marital,
or homosexual–
more [extended family] sinful than war or torture?”

“Why should a [LeftBrain ego-supremacist] conservative
living in the Midwest
find it personally threatening when gays get married in San Francisco or Massachusetts?”

“Why doesn’t a [health and safety utilitarian survivalist] conservative government
take better care of its veterans,
and why don’t [conservative self-condemning] veterans
and their families rebel en masse?”

“Why do progressives feel a sense of responsibility for righting the wrongs
of past generations?”
[Because we hope that’s what our kids
will do for their kids?]

“And why should we find progressive and conservative values
and modes of thought outside of politics proper–
in kindergartens,
Little League coaching,
churches,
summer camps, and so on?”
[And who said these are not ecopolitical paradigms?]
