Ponder this

The media has brainwashed the electorate to expect the government to do something. The best economic policy of any government is to do nothing but reduce the size of the government, reduce the size of the laws, and reduce the size of regulations.

Father’s Day 2017

Sure, it’s not exactly topical – but we couldn’t let Father’s Day go by without poking a little fun at the wild and woolly Clinton family, and restate our suspicion that (unlike certain blue dresses we could name) Chelsea has no trace of Bill’s DNA.

And speaking of the Clintons, what ever happened to the investigations that were supposed to be happening to look into the ugly relationship between “contributions” to the demonstrably bogus Clinton Foundation and “favors” granted to high-rollers by Hillary’s State Department? As long as we’ve got Special Counsels galloping around Washington with their hair on fire, why not put one on her tail? [snip]

Cognitive dissonance

When looking for the Left’s strong point in logic, you will have a long search; They don’t have one. In fact if one tries to apply logic to any utterance by the so called ‘Progressives’, a fruitless period of time will be spent attempting such application. To wit:

The common complaint by junior grade socialists and up and coming mushwits who are the current class of snowflakes occupying spaces on campi pretending to study something or other in an endeavor to appear educated is capitalist are destroying society with greed. Oh MY!
This is offered as proof of their truth.

The Choir Infernal

Although it’s a bit early in our day (barely) for mixed drinks, we can’t help but indulge in mixed metaphors when trying to comprehend what’s going on in the news. Per the cartoon, we can’t quite decide whether the news broadcasts relating to the specious Trump/Russia investigation are coming from another planet, or whether the alleged journalists in the mainstream media have finally gone native, adorned themselves in grass skirts and war paint and, high on adrenalin and their own screaming chants, are now throwing spears at anything that moves.

Not since Michael Jackson set his noggin ablaze while shooting a Pepsi commercial have we seen so much “hair on fire” news. And we don’t get it.

Did the Russians hack our election? No. Did they “influence” the result of our election? There’s been no evidence of it. Did Trump conspire with Russia to make these non-events happen? Again, there’s not a scintilla of evidence. But you’d never know it from the rabid stories being reported virtually everywhere.

In some ways, we liken this phenomenon to the whole global warming sham – only now, instead of seeing “consensus science” we’re seeing “consensus journalism” in which a story without substance or evidence is declared to be incontrovertibly true simply because so many nitwits have agreed to report it.

It’s insanity, of course – and all the more frightening for that. We may be witnessing an attempted coup d’etat driven almost entirely by an overtly lying leftist media. And it’s additionally worrisome to think about how the ever-volatile President Trump might react; after all, he’s brought much of this situation upon himself (and us) with his Tourette’s-like need to tweet every half-baked thought which ricochets through the caverns of his mind.

We’d say more, only we’ve managed to stall long enough that it IS time for a nice mixed drink. We’re thinking cheap scotch mixed with an extra shot of our usual bile.

AND BECAUSE IT’S FRIDAY…

…we deserve a laugh, so here’s another old cartoon by Stilton’s father!

It’s not parking as long as you keep the motor running. So to speak.
