It’s Friday and time for our shoot the shit. Readers if you are unfamiliar with a shoot the shit, think of it like this… a discussion on a topic or a variety of topics where you are free to make any unsupported comment, discuss them using profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether. You are free to participate whether you know anything about the subject being discussed or not. After a hard week, a good shoot the shit is more effective than paying a jackass who studied a behavioral science because they wanted to understand themselves. Remember that psychologists, philosophers and sociologist are living proof that free market economies produce sufficient surpluses to absorb their career choice.
Where To Begin?
The Russian extravaganza has bypassed sublime and ridicules and is now headed into uncharted territory. It touches everyone: Donald J. Trump, Evanka, Jared Kushner, Mike Flynn, Nigel Farage, et al and by this time next week, the TRUMP Tower janitor will be implicated. The Democrats are placing all their chips on the Russian conspiracy bet. They actually believe there’s a groundswell forming over the Russian “involvement! ”
I’d like to share a recent example of that groundswell…
Last week, I attended a dinner. The host arranged 6 to a table and seated at my table were two lesbian women, both engineers. As the evening progressed, the subject changed from technology to politics. Both of these women shared their decision to leave the Democratic Party to become Independents citing embarrassment as their reason with the table. That’s one hell of a groundswell!
It’s amazing readers, Donald Trump could propose a cure for Herpes and Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren would oppose it. Adding insult to injury, you have imbeciles like Stephen Colbert and Kathy Griffin attacking the President of the United States with vulgar and classless stabs. None of these individuals, including the media, have devoted a modicum of time reading, let alone understanding, executive orders, treaties or proposals. So, who are they? They’re ideologues praying on a generally uninformed audience for ratings.
I firmly believe in a two party system, it’s by far the best way to achieve a centrist balance in policy and legislation, but Democrats are self-destructing and don’t recognize it. It’s tragic and in all candor, I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.
In closing, I want you all to stay informed, stay engaged and if you’re a Kool-Aid drinker, make sure you’re drinking only your own.
Let us hear from you if the mood hits you. Have a great weekend, be safe and enjoy some quality time with your buds and family.
