Full Speed Backwards!

This is the story of Nebraska Trump. A man so childish and arrogant they he thinks that when things dont go his way, he can throw a money tantrum and buy his way back to being his way. Hey, it works. So why shouldn't our Trump, Governor Pete Ricketts, Governor Death Penalty, get his way even when it comes to appointing Admiralships in the Nebraska Navy. Yeah, The Nebraska Navy. A totally mythical organization that allows a Governor to hand out funny little certificates to various people and everyone has a good laugh. Hell, its not that hard to become an Admiral in the Nebraska Navy. All you need is to have one of its citizens, like me, to send in your name for nomination, and voila, you soon have a fake title like Worlds Greatest Chef or Worlds Best Mom and can hang it on your wall. But lets get back to the start of this story all about Nebraska Trump.

Back in the fall, empowered by something, I'm not sure what, a college sophomore set up a table on the University of Nebraska campus for Turning Point USA (throw that USA in there of course), an organization the rats on college professors they feel are too liberal, you know like professors that oppose white nationalists. But I'm again getting ahead of myself.

This college sophomore, a young woman from Colorado, set up this booth to get people to sign on and "monitor" the University professors to make sure they dont teach anything bad to impressionable young people. You know, like the earth is round or there was actually slavery at one time in this nation's history, or god forbid, that Donald Trump is an uncouth loud traitor. A demonstration began involving people who think this young woman may have been in line with the Charlottesville gang of punks very fine people who killed a woman by running her over with a car. Words got exchanged. One grad student got a bit honest carried away and screamed at the young snowflake and called her a "neo-fascist". This caused the young sophomore to cry. Another demonstrator, an actual professor holding a "Turning Point: Put Me On Your Watchlist" was caught on video comforting this poor little sensitive conservative. Then it all ended.

This incident caused 3 state senators to throw a shitfit that their point of view was being stifled by libtards people on the UNL faculty. That's when the Governor, Pete Trump Ricketts stepped in also to begin threatening the university budget, as long as it didnt affect the 4-8 football team of course. Ricketts, who got every bit of his fortune from his Daddy, started to open his wallet which scares the shit out of any Nebraskan who doesnt want to be ruled by an autocratic trust fund baby.

The grad student, also a lecturer, was asked not to return to campus. The Professor went on with her year, knowing there was some squealing snitch someplace monitoring her every move.

This is where the Nebraska Navy comes in. A Nebraska gadfly nominated both the Professor and the grad student for Admiralships and as 99.9% of the nominations, they were both granted by Governor Trump Ricketts. Certificates were sent out and that was that. Or so any normal human being would think. It's like buying a "Golfer of The Year" certificate at a gift shop. Its a fucking joke. Oh but its not a joke for Governor Pete Ricketts, the Nebraska Trump who never lets a slight go unpunished.

For example, the Nebraska Legislature, attempting to keep under control Governor Brownback Ricketts humongous budget deficit, repealed the death penalty in the state. Ricketts, who ran for the job just so he could someday kill someone, threw a tantrum after his veto was overridden. He opened his wallet and spent almost a million dollars of his Daddy's money to start a petition drive to get the issue on the ballot where he knew "pro-life" Nebraskans would reinstate the archaic, expensive practice so they could kill execute some Mexicans and blacks. They did, of course cuz we are a "Pro-Life" state as Ricketts says about 50 times a week no matter what he's yammering about.

Example 2, when the legislature gets a bit uppity and doesnt go along with what Ricketts wants, he simply spends his own money to get his puppets elected. And it fucking works, because in this state we vote for whoever's name youve heard the most in TV ads. And Daddy Ricketts has a lot of money to buy TV ads to elect his son's sheeple to a job that pays $22K a year.

Back to the Nebraska Navy. Once Governor Trump was informed, probably by one of his snitches, that he had granted the "honor" to these two women, he immediately sent letters to them demanding the certificates be returned as they were granted due to "clerical error". Huh?

Admiralships in the Nebraska Navy have been given to murderous dictators, scam artists, religious phonies, tax cheats, women abusers, and even my liberal father. Yet not once has one of them been revoked. Not one. Until now. Because a couple of strong women made a little conservative dotard student cry Ricketts wants them to return the certificates.

As you can see from the above picture, one of the "honorees" aint giving it up, The only problem is that Ricketts, like Trump, has a goon squad of bodyguards and a gang of Trumpanzees willing to do anything to enforce his will. So we shall see what happens if Governor Trump Rickets, a talking hard boiled egg per John Oliver, decides to push it.

Oh and a PS. The University of Nebraska has a full fledged self aggrandizing Nazi on its campus. This, however, is a matter of freedom of speech and University officials, in fear for their funding, can do nothing to eradicate the white nationalist scum from its campus. Yell at a conservative cream puff and you are asked to leave campus. Espouse Nazi ideology on You Tube, participate in white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville, and its all a matter of free speech.

This is Pete Ricketts' Nebraska. His own little fiefdom, his own little plutocracy where you do what he wants, or he'll buy his wants.

He's running for re-election folks. And he will probably win because he has unlimited money to influence the western part of this state with his TV ads.

I feel like Nebraska is going the way of Kansas. Run into the ground, or rather run straight into an iceberg by a man in a little dictator suit.

Where the hell is an Admiral when you need one?
