🤡 Just Silly ➖ Open Thread

If you watch network or cable news, read any major paper or listen to much of what passes for political discourse you can be forgiven if when you aren’t shaking your head in disbelief you are wondering where all these silly fools came from. Have all the rational people been kidnapped?

Have aliens attacked the Earth with a mind-killing silly gas and only a few of us are immune? Are we the only ones that can see the pods beneath the beds?

One of the things I couldn’t understand, and I’m an old lady so society at large all ready thinks I’m silly, is how any woman, any where, thought she would convince people she was oppressed by wearing a pussy hat. Or that, at that time, a newly elected Donald Trump was to blame for their oppression.

Note to silly women, if you can parade through the streets wearing a pussy hat on your silly head, or even worse dress up in a vagina costume, you are not oppressed. You are whatever comes after silly.

They even have websites to teach you how to knit your own. I like the one with a brain knitted on it – Heaven knows there isn’t one between the ears of the wearer. How to knit a pussy hat.     free laughing emoticon

Take a look at the cartoon below. It might seem hyperbolic at first glance, cartoons often are, but not if you’ve watched some of the idiot panels on CNN or MSNBC.

Real people on real “news” programs say such silly/stupid things. What’s worse, real people, who are silly enough to watch this nonsense believe it.

Never mind that they may live next door to nice people that don’t believe that we should allow Europe to tell us what we should do about Global Warming. These nice, average people know that the world’s climate has been warming and cooling for a millions of years. They don’t think a bunch of hysterical people in Paris are going to have any affect other than bankrupting their economies trying to stop the earth from doing it’s thing.

The accusations, based mostly on rumor and innuendo about Donald Trump and the Russians has gotten so silly I don’t understand how the people repeating them on “news” programs can do it with a straight face. Has Comedy Central gained control of the air waves? Led by the pod people?

Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference between silly and stupid. Sometimes there isn’t one. Example below. But don’t blame silly/stupid Maxine, someone keeps electing her and has since 1976.

While Maxine Waters is a prime, in your face example of the poor quality of people we elect to serve us, she is hardly an anomaly. There are many like her, they just aren’t as vocal. Which perhaps proves they aren’t as silly.

You want some more silly? How about just 3 days after posing for a picture holding a mock-up of a severed Trump head the unfunny Kathy Griffin is back and playing, what else, the victim.

SHE’S BAAAACK: Kathy Griffin And Celeb Lawyer To Hold Presser On Trump Family ‘Bullying’ Her

A mere three days after posing for an ISIS-inspired photo in which she held a mock severed Donald Trump head covered in blood, the D-lister will be returning to the limelight to hold a presser, accompanied by legal representation, to complain about the alleged “bullying” she’s received from the Trump family.

I really don’t know how to catalogue her action. Is it desperation, chutzpah, hypocrisy or just silly? One thing I am sure of, there will be plenty of silly people on the left who will support her. Victims R Them.

Speaking of victims, the Hillary Victim Tour waddles on.

I am not surprised by her Victim Tour, it is after all what she does best. I just wonder why after all this time anyone still pays any attention to it or her.

Again I wonder at the difference between silly and stupid.

 Stupid as an adjective means – having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense.
Silly as an adjective means – having or showing a lack of common sense or judgment; absurd and foolish.

However silliness is catalogued it isn’t a sign of a fully functioning mind. It isn’t a sign of intellect worthy of note. It is only worthy of mockery.

As an example of how even my beloved cartoonists can be silly, and not in a good way, here’s a cartoon from David Horsey of the Los Angeles Times.

Cartoon by David Horsey -

 

Because Trump wouldn’t sign onto the Paris Agreement Angela Merkel, who is not only allowing her country to be deluged with potential terrorists, but actively encourages it, is now the leader of the free world. That’s silly. She’s having enough trouble just trying to keep Europe together.

Cartoons and cartoonists are partisans too.  Horsey is a lefty and is, through his silly cartoon, disseminating fake news.  A lie is a lie no matter who tells it. Disinformation serves no one well.

Rand Paul tried to quell some of the silliness about Global Warming.

Rand Paul Blasts Climate Alarmism in Debate with Jake Tapper: ‘Mass Extinction, Really?’

I am not a big Rand Paul fan but I like him better for making Tapper, whom I dislike intensely, look silly. Which he did because he knew what he was talking about and Tapper didn’t. Yay Rand Paul.

“Is there climate change? Can man have an impact?” He asked, “yes, but let’s not be so alarmist as to say such outrageous things that if we don’t sign the Paris Accord there’s going to mass extinction. That is a ridiculous statement.”

“Are you really saying that man is not contributing to climate change?” Tapper asked at one point.

“How much is nature and how much is man?” Paul asked again. “I’m perfectly willing to admit that man can have an influence and we should minimize our pollution. But those who say that it is all man and don’t acknowledge that the 4.5 billion year old planet has gone through massive climate change based on natural effects.”

“Not to the degree that we’ve seen in the last century,” Tapper countered.

“Absolutely incorrect,” Paul claimed. “When you look at climate change the most dramatic ice age, the dramatic warming and cooling period all happened before man was even around for the most part.

There is no end to the examples of silliness I could use in this post. Silliness abides when all else fails. Silliness shouts while common sense and common decency are silent or lost.

I make fun and talk of silliness in a semi-humorous way because it worries me so much. A silly people is a vulnerable people. Vulnerable to evil within and without.

Beware silly – it can be a problem worse than malice and corruption. Because silly will never stop malice and corruption. It can’t.

On that happy note I wish you all

    Ridiculous – Watching supposed adults acting like immature jr. high schoolers in their outrageous behaviors and puerile remarks. Maybe breathing the rarefied D.C. atmosphere is ‘triggering’ early onset of dementia.

    So happy to read that Cruz called out Elon Musk for his hypocrisy on global warming – tooling around the world in his private jet.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      There are a whole lot of “supposed adults” around and not many of the genuine article IMO.

      Cruz is good at taking the wind out of sails. Good for him.

    Doesn’t she have any idea of how silly she is making herself with this “I am a victim and a sore loser” tour?

    • piper Says:

      Another victim of early onset dementia. Her narcissism is interfering with the truth of her loss. I can name several (okay many) reasons for her defeat – the server in the her basement toilet, Benghazi, Arab Spring, Libya, Obama, ‘deplorables,’ conceit about voters in several states, and so forth.

      I remember her pressing Trump about accepting the results of the election and was a bit put out when he refused to answer. Well it’s time for the madame to pull herself up, graciously accept the results and try her hand at being a grandmother.

    I did say that I often got confused if something was silly or stupid. The woman in the image is an idiot and seems perfectly willing to prove it.

    Trump stood up to pressure on Paris accord

    During his Rose Garden speech, Trump announced that he is pulling the U.S. out of the international agreement but added that he is open to a new agreement that is better for the interests of Americans.

    In making the decision, Trump showed leadership by casting aside pressure from a host of supporters of the climate-change agreement, including world leaders, corporate CEOs, key White House advisers, and the left-wing media.

    Instead, Trump sided with conservatives and his pro-fossil-fuel energy policy.

    The pressure was intense to keep the U.S. in the Paris agreement.

    https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/trump-stood-up-to-pressure-on-paris-accord

    Within the president’s inner circle, advisers Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, and Gary Cohn reportedly supported the international agreement, as well as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Energy Secretary Rick Perry.

    That can’t be right. All the #NeverTrumpers say that Trump does what Ivanka and Jared tell him to do. Of course Mourning Joe and a host of others say Bannon is in charge.

    Whatever. I am glad Trump did this. This was a “Good Trump” moment IMO. I calls em like I sees em.

    This is so, SO wrong. There is simply no excuse, no justification, for this action by the NY Times. And these are the same people who, rightfully so, screamed abt Valerie Plame, and now they are doing even more damage out of their Trump Derangement mania: http://thefederalist.com/2017/06/02/new-york-times-just-outed-cia-chief-iran/
