Things are getting weird down there on flat earth


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.

Life on the Street


Do you think the rising cost of rent is effecting the Muppets on Sesame Street?

Everywhere I go these days, it seems the cost of rent is going up everywhere. This can induce a feeling of anxiety.  The average rent is about $1000 a month and in most cases, you have to make three times that before they even rent to you.

That means if you don’t make at least $3000 a month then you are homeless. If it keeps going at this rate you may end up making six figures a year and still be on the streets in a few more years.

All that being said, I can’t help but think about those poor Muppets on Sesame Street.  Although some of them have trash cans they can live in. Of course we all know that nothing is free and the rent on a trash can is pretty high considering Sesame Street is in New York.

Add to the fact that federal funding is being cut for Sesame Street, which just means that the Muppets will not be able to receive welfare benefits.  

This could be the making for a new movie called The Muppets at the homeless shelter. Can you see all those Muppets standing in the welfare line?

Whatever the end result ends up being, I am sure nothing will get in the way of Bert and Ernie’s undying love for each other as they are still celebrating their freedom to same-sex marry.  These two have been together nearly half a century and I am surprised that when you Google “longest same-sex couples” you don’t see any mention of the cute little Muppet couple as they are so popular.

Some McD’s humor


I saw something once that a MacDonald’s in Germany actually sold alcohol. Talk about a happy meal. Or a happy hour meal.

I confess I still eat at McD’s on occasion. If I’m passing one and I’m hungry enough.

I actually like their coffee. Especially when I can get a large for $1 and free refills. Can’t wait for the senior discount. By then it will be $1 with the discount.

All things in moderation, right. Right?

I wouldn’t recommend going to McD’s after eating at the local farmer’s market though. That’s like a clash of cultures in your stomach.

Can you imagine McD’s ever going green? Talk about a vegan big mac.

What is it good for?


War

What is it good for?

Profits

But at least it all trickles down.

Right?

Right???

Although just because I may not be able to support the greedy motives behind the warmongering doesn’t mean I shouldn’t support the troops who risked their lives. Not really sure just who’s freedom they are actually fighting for sometimes.

With all these entertainers running for President, how about we elect Chuck Norris? He will take care of all wars by himself.

A conversation between a sinner and an Evangelical


Human: So God loves me but has to burn me forever if I don’t love him back or believe in the right theology?

Evangelical: yes

Human: that’s not a God anyone wants to know

Evangelical: he will love you unconditionally once you get to know him.

Human: sounds like your typical asshole on this planet

How many people have died at the hands of “unconditional love?”
