If you want a conspiracy theory, here’s a good one. :-)

There are shocking things about this subject. One of them is how intellectually defenseless most Americans, even those supposedly superlative ones in board rooms and legislative offices, appear to be.

Democratic Debate Notes by Jimmy Dore

  • Tim Ryan is an ignorant liar
  • Jake Tapper is a fake journalist working for a fake, corporate-sponsored “news” outlet
  • Delaney (???) is a useless hack
  • People such as Sanders and Warren, people with conviction and ideas and courage, conspicuously tower above this babbling fraternity of indoctrinated, beholden, well-compensated, compromised nitwits

Sen. Rand Paul claims in cowardly fashion that criticizing America warrants deportation

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/07/senator-rand-paul-offers-buy-ungrateful-rep-ilhan-omar-ticket-to-somalia.html

From http://utminers.utep.edu/omwilliamson/ENGL1311/fallacies.htm :

The Worst Negates the Bad (also, Be Grateful for What You’ve Got): The extremely common modern logical fallacy that an objectively bad situation somehow isn’t so bad simply because it could have been far worse, or because someone, somewhere has it even worse. E.g., “I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw someone who had no feet.” Or, “You’re protesting because you earn only $7.25 an hour? You could just as easily be out on the street! I happen to know there are people in Uttar Pradesh who are doing the very same work you’re doing for one tenth of what you’re making, and they’re pathetically glad just to have work at all. You need to shut up, put down that picket sign, get back to work for what I care to pay you, and thank me each and every day for giving you a job!”

Apparently the senator hasn’t been properly educated on how to think logically. But it sure has gotten him far in his life! Clearly our political class is rewarded not for being reasonable, nor correct, nor for pursuing truth, and definitely not for helping society; but instead for bullying, saying foolish things in public, appealing to the lowest common denominator, and distracting from the important things that are happening around us.

Thank the gods for the PR industry which keeps stupid people such as Trump’s pet Mulvaney employed.

Mulvaney, Sarah Sanders, Frank Luntz, Sunday talk show imaginers. . . . Just throw out the stupidest misconstructions you can concoct in your unreasonable mind without any regard for their veracity, value, impact on society, capacity for destruction. . . . Great job!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‘น You consummate dancing monkeys!!

The Plastic Industryโ€™s Fight to Keep Polluting the World

Pushes to โ€œrecycleโ€ plastics are one element of a massive, industry-led effort to suppress meaningful efforts to reduce plastic waste.

Yeah, keep recycling!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Instead of donating money to Bernie Sanders, for example, or becoming an educated voter and citizen and rightfully condemning with hellfire the corporations that have completely hijacked the world you live in and that governs you.ย  Don’t want to appear to be too extreme, right?
