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
This incident caused 3 state senators to throw a shitfit that their point of view was being stifled by
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
For example, the Nebraska Legislature, attempting to keep under control Governor
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
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
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
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?
