When you’re a sub-mediocrity, you might decide to pursue a career in local or state politics as it’s primarily run by other sub-mediocrities who only recognize their own kind. Chances are good you’ll advance.
If you display the proper kind of criminal behavior, you know, like pilfering, theft, malfeasance, talking out of both sides of your mouth (and other unmentionable orifices) AND can do so with a smile – you’re gold.
Take those skills and parlay them towards advanced sub-mediocrity studies and by golly, you could end up a complete moron, buffoon, shyster and a-hole extraordinaire, a/k/a Lindsey Graham, Senator of the United States.
Direct from one of the many dangerous orifices of Mr. Graham, comes his latest gem on death and destruction:
US war with North Korea ‘worth it’ – Lindsey Graham – (via RT.com)
The damage caused by a US war with North Korea would be “worth it,” Senator Lindsey Graham said. The comments further fuel speculation the US is gearing up for action against Pyongyang.
“All the damage that would come from a war would be worth it in terms of long-term stability and national security,” the Republican senator from South Carolina told CNN. “I’m completely convinced that President Trump and his team reject the policy of containment… They’ve drawn a red line here and it is to never let North Korea build a nuclear-tipped missile to hit America.”
Granted, he has a point here. Why let North Korea develop and build a nuclear tipped missile to hit America, when America has this shit-head pursuing war, any kind of war, maybe even a world war where Americans might not be so lucky to miss in on the sting of annihilation felt by other countries the US has turned to rubble. North Korea doesn’t have to develop any kind of nuclear deterrent to keep the US at bay, we have a looney Senator who will do the job for them by jeopardizing the lives of millions of his own countrymen with his dreams of continued wars.
Clutching his pearls and salivating over mayhem and murder, not here in the US, of course, he went on to outdo his previous shit-head statement, demonstrating advanced demonic thinking with the following:
“If there’s going to be a war to stop [Kim Jong-un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there. They’re not going to die here,” he added. “And [Trump] told me that to my face. That may be provocative, but not really. When you’re president of the United States, where does your allegiance lie? To the people of the United States.”
If only new and endearing technology making it’s way to a town near you could be used on all government “officials” whether they be complete demons, or just sub-mediocrities attempting to attain their doctorate in bringing every kind of form of shittery dreamed up in any of the circles of hell they originated from – the ordinary citizen simply trying to survive the day-to-day might stand a chance.
Police Secretly Use ‘Thought Crime’ Technology On New Orleans Residents – via yournewswire.com
Police have begun testing new ‘thought crime’ technology in New Orleans that allows them to arrest citizens who may be about to commit a crime.
The technology relies solely on an advanced “pre-crime” algorithm to detect crimes before they happen.
Activistpost.com reports: Despite an ongoing debate about potential errors in current systems, and even the legitimacy of predictive algorithms altogether, police departments across the nation are rolling out various versions of this technology. However, even worse than citizens apparently having little to no say about what their tax dollars are building, it is increasingly coming to light that these programs are being used without informing citizens at all.
Have you heard of this? Of course not, it’s time for the annual awards ceremony of mostly bad movies, tasteless apparel and rip-roaring laughter as purveyors of ugliness and idiocy display their true talents.
Ah, but to dream of a life lived free of sub-mediocrities.
