I have heard so much bullshit the past few years that I begin to wonder if maybe earth really is flat. That title should get some attention. My new motto is “stay stupid or play stupid.”
I’m convinced none of the stuff we argue about down here is as important as we make it out to be.
Don’t believe what you hear on the news
Life is not nearly as bad as the advertising driven make it out to be. Most of society’s ills work themselves out in the private sector while most people are too distracted by politics to even notice.
They basically want the free healthcare so they can deal with the stress-induced illnesses caused by politics and their jobs.
Even Chinese people admit they don’t watch the news because these know it’s propaganda. They can’t figure out why Americans do it. And to think I went to college to be a journalist till I realized it was just organized gossip.
Practical reasons not to vote
When people ask me what party I am with, I just tell them I don’t join cults. Capitalism tends to worship money while Democracy worships the state. I heard a congressperson say the nation’s capital was even their temple!
I have no problem voting if there was a candidate that I actually liked. If voting makes a difference anywhere, it’s at the local level. Everything starts at the local level.
The basis for politics
Politics revolves around economics. Most economists are usually conservative or liberal. If there is a libertarian economist they probably have a small following. That is generally how you know something is true.
Come to think of it, most comedians vote democrat. This is probably because those overeducated wimps are so easy to roast. The only thing I can get on Republicans is sexually repressed geriatric humor.
In other news, notice in the last year and a half of the Coronavirus plandenic (not a misspelling) hardly anyone died of natural causes. What a miracle!
Also we are moving into July which is the start of Christmas season (commercially speaking). Less than 200 shopping days till Christmas.
