The unholy alliance between the Lame Stream Media and politicians will eventually be destroyed if we continue to laugh at them.
Their younger target audience ignores clickbait as well as the pontificating beautiful people.
The liberal infiltration of apps like Farcebook and other social media are also being ignored.
Historically, we’re about to come full circle as memes have become the shorthand for political humor.
I recommend that the younger generation research Mark Twain and Will Rogers. They were the antidote for the political poison of their day. The PC crowd has neutered political humor, but we can repeat these salient observations that work just as well for today.
Nov 30, 1835 – Apr 21, 1910
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed.
If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.”
Apparently, our journalist friends have a time honored tradition of fake news.
“Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.”
One of Ronald Reagan’s favorite quotations and an observation as true today as it was over a hundred years ago.
“No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
California politicians seriously considered a tax on texting…and backed away when the laughter obviated the need for any discussion of this brilliance.
“To lodge all power in one party and keep it there is to insure bad government and the sure and gradual deterioration of the public morals.”
Twain didn’t know Bill Clinton or the other sex obsessed politicians, but…OK, you get my drift.
“Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.”
Twain was obviously prescient?
There are people whose ego is so large that they honestly believe that they should be the rulers of the world. New World Order, Deep State Bureaucracy or whatever you want to label them, they frequently pat themselves on the back for their perceived brilliance.
Teddy Roosevelt was one of them. He ran a third party against the Democrat Woodrow Wilson and the Republican nominee, Charles Evans Hughes. Check out Hughes and ponder what would have happened if he had won instead of Wilson.
Ross Perot did the same thing and we got Bill Clinton…and Hillary!
These same ego driven people charter (or own) private jets they ride to global warming seminars. The last seminar racked up 151 private jets for these snowflakes for whom ride sharing is obviously an unfamiliar concept.
Members of the elite crowd bond together with fraternal affiliations like Skull and Bones…numbskulls is more like it. After graduation from academic institutions like Harvard that honor a SAT score of 1270 (that Hogg kid), they work together to make sure their country clubs and multiple vacation homes have armed guards to keep the riff raff out while condemning the second amendment and creating anti-gun laws.
We’ve got memes for that:
“The political and commercial morals of the United States are not merely food for laughter, they are an entire banquet”.
Ouch…that one will leave a mark…excuse the pun!
And now on to Will Rogers…
November 4, 1879 – August 15, 1935
Will Rogers is more contemporary although Mark Twain’s humor is just as pertinent.
Both are based on common sense and the ability to shine a bright light on idiots.
“The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that’s out always looks the best”.
Which explains how we keep switching control in Washington?
“About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation”.
Will Rogers witnessed the repeal of prohibition which probably prompted this observation:
“Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for”.
Rogers also shared Twain’s assessment of our journalism friends…
“All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that’s an alibi for my ignorance”.
The Drudge Report has become a joke with page refresh more often than I blink and a preponderance of clickbait. The page refresh gives him a bloated view count so he can charge more for advertising…which AdBlock software defeats.
Here’s a sampling of the stories Drudge thought important:
GALLUP: Michelle O Ends Hillary Run as Most Admired…
Celeb shark hunter under police investigation after cruelly attacking seabird…
Archaeologist haunted by ‘cursed dreams’ after opening sarcophagus…
STUDY: Surgeons Make Significantly More Mistakes When Under Stress…
Women’s College to Admit Some Trans Students…
There is relief in sight…
This news aggregate is what Drudge was hoping to be. You can spend hours (literally) keeping up to date on both sides of the arguments for any subject. It’s also packed with social media overview, the latest memes and human interest stories that will make you laugh and cry.
For you older folks…think of whatfinger.com as The Reader’s Digest running 400 pages and published every day. Mark Twain and Will Rogers would be proud.
Laughter and common sense will always be an effective bleach for any cesspool the dregs of society may try to create.
