“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” ~ George Orwell
We could begin with our typical, cynical commentary on the times we live in…but why bother with such humdrum when we can let the times we live in speak on their own…
Citing Russia, Trump Administration Seeks ‘More Usable’ Nuclear Weapons – via antimedia.org
Yep… “more usable” nuclear weapons are always better than the old nuclear weapons gathering smartdust somewhere. We want maximum annihilation capabilities of the planet because a few lunatics need to somehow explain how a corrupt, utter failure of a human being and presidential candidate (Hilary Clinton) could lose an election to a former TV reality star with orange hair. It’s the Russians…it’s always the Russians and in accordance with the deep well of guano these a-holes reside in – more usable nuclear weapons is the answer.
630% more “aerosolized flu virus particles” emitted by people who received flu shots… flu vaccines actually SPREAD the flu – via naturalnews.com
Oh, come on, now. Screw that! We’re expected to believe that getting a jab of a vat of chemicals along with the virus itself isn’t going to get into our bloodstream whereby our hacking, coughing, sneezing, breathing, etc., won’t actually spread the flu? Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Our government and Big Pharma tells us to get the mostly ineffective flu vaccine because…well, just because they tell us do so. And it’s right and proper, after all, it comes from the same government who needs more “usable” nuclear weapons.
Senator John McCain on Nunes Memo Release: “We are Doing Putin’s Job for Him.” via huffpost.com
“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy,” McCain said. “Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro and beyond.”
The aging lizard from Arizona lost his mind years ago. But it’s okay – no problem, just make shit up – it’s about all most Americans believe in anymore. Besides, it advances that more “usable” nuclear weapons horseshit.
Well done, Senator. Well done!
And since it’s that Sunday in February where all good Americans gather round the idiot box for some extra indoctrination to all that is ugly, providing an excuse for an little bit of extra alcoholic intake and nacho overdose in order to feel like one “belongs” to the hip, the modern, the moronic – why not watch a bit of men in bad fitting tights let loose a testosterone explosion of insanity, coupled with entertainment offerings of extreme queasiness to dull the American mind and send it deeper into the abyss.
Not many ways to combat such ugliness other than with sheer beauty. No other to provide a frickin’ cultural kick in the ass than from Beethoven.
