Eventually even the stupidest among us will understand that violent language is as bad as violent action.When you are unable to even frame your thoughts in ways that do not involve violence then you cannot hope to act in any other way.

Vulture: Woody Harrelson’s Joe Biden Will Sniff You and Hug You From Behind on SNL

Vulture: Woody Harrelson’s Joe Biden Will Sniff You and Hug You From Behind on SNL.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

The only thing I don’t like is when the source of the humor is fallacious and ends up reinforcing misinterpretations of things, lending to further ignorance instead of enlightenment. It seems that even SNL is prey to the temptation to seem even-handed while merely muddying the waters even more, flattening things so they all appear to be the same.

Joe Biden Is A Doddering Old Mummy With A Skull Full Of Dumpster Juice

A masterful description of what is happening in front of our eyes but is ignored by the masses! 🙂😁😂👍

Is it that people somehow disagree with this assessment or do they simply lack the cognitive ability to grasp it? Stupid is as stupid does and if you choose to have a mental framework without rigor yet loudly proclaim stupid ideas then you might as well wear a dunce cap.

P.S. What kind of society would even allow such a person to be in this position, to be a candidate for president? After making a similar monstrously poor choice with Drumpf?? An irredeemable one perhaps.

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.

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.

Mueller is a consummate Company Man (decidedly not any kind of morally upstanding maverick) and behaved exactly as such to the dismay and mild consternation of loser, milquetoast Democrats

Bernie Sanders is patiently waiting for people to wake the fuck up.

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/03/harris-warren-2020-dems-poll-1396656

That’s what the headline was supposed to be. 🙂

But the sleepyheads are still in the lead! 😃 How exciting this is for us to be writing about and watching instead of thinking deliberately!!! 😃😃😃 So, let’s see:

  • We know the name “Biden” real well. Check!
  • He’s white like our nice, smart father, and the bread that we eat. Check! (But, shh! Don’t question him or make him angry!)
  • He talks with the greatest of ease. Check!
  • He smiles and is friendly. Check!

Once he’s back in charge we’ll all be safe again. Ahhh! 😊😴
