When you get to be my age and things seem a bit crazy to you – you ponder. Is the issue/event/person crazy or am I in my old age the nutcake? It’s a legitimate question that I’ve come to ask myself with monotonous regularity. Sort of prune juice for the brain.
Even people who are years, decades, scores of years younger than I must often wonder if they’ve fallen down… the rabbit hole.
The instances of crazy are not hidden from view – they are blatantly in your face every day. Not only in your face but demanding that you accept them as some kind of reality. Because reality isn’t as important as feelings or someone’s opinion.
I’ll be the first to admit that to me, my opinion is of great importance. To the rest of the world, not very much. I always try to keep in mind that my right to my opinion doesn’t make my opinion right. I forget who said that first but in my opinion they were right.
There was a time, in the not so distant past when we only had to suffer from the opinions of the pundidiots that pranced on television or pontificated in the pages of major newspapers with the written word. We knew who they were and knew how to deal with them. Written = bottom of the bird cage and pontificating nitwits on the air waves were simply one click away from oblivion. Television screen goes black and haul out a book.
Now with the proliferation of social media everyone with access to a keyboard is able to reveal their lack of intellect in front of everyone. Many of these weak-minded ninnies think their opinion is the same as a fact. Too often the keyboard pontificater to be either enormously ignorant, immensely stupid or angry and mean.
Think about the information below:
The modern Socialist takes an Uber to the Starbucks where they post on Social Media from an IPhone…
To complain about Capitalism.
Isn’t that a bit crazy? Have my ancient synapses finally stopped transferring electric activity (information) from one cell to another?
Politicians spend an inordinate amount of their time excoriating other politicians and slinging mud like school yard children. Then they wonder why we have such a low opinion of them. Or perhaps they don’t wonder at all – perhaps they know and don’t care because a certain number of crazy people will support them no matter what they do or say.
Take Nancy Pelosi who is the Minority Leader in the House of Representatives. This woman says crazy things all the time. Sometime she simply babbles. If this old woman runs for office until she falls over in her tracks the voters in her district will continue to vote her back into office. WTH?
I was surprised at the number of rich and power men who are being outed as perverts. I shouldn’t have been surprised. This is the culture that we live in. This is in your face sex 24/7, teachers who want to tell your young children about anal sex and the proliferation of genders. What the hell did we expect?
If sex is fine and dandy for everyone all the time where is there a line to be drawn? Rape? Yet some of these crazies are equating some old perv patting their butt to woman who have been raped thus making the rape less horrific. That’s just my opinion and not a fact.
We have access to more information than any people have ever had. Yet because so much of it’s wrong we are not only not more informed than previous generations we are far more misinformed. To make that even worse much of the misinformation is being peddled by a media that is determined to:
A. Take down Donald Trump
B. Convert most of America to liberals
C. Vent their rage over not getting the result they thought they would get when they worked very hard to make Donald Trump the Republican candidate
D. All of the above
Craziest of all is that anyone, from any party, from red or blue states, from Earth, Mars or Uranus are actually listening to or taking Crazy Maxine Waters seriously.
This loud-mouthed lunatic has been screaming about impeaching Trump since he was elected. People who should know better listen, not only listen but cheer. Am I senile or are they nuts?
Then there is this very special brand of complete insanity. This loon passed crazy a while back:
You know that the world is crazy when Donald Trump sits in the White House as a duly elected president. So bad was his opponent, so disliked and mistrusted that a former FLOTUS was defeated by a talk show host and wealthy loud mouth.
As if having a aged juvenile delinquent in the White House wasn’t enough we have and over abundance of stupid, lying nitwits in our nation’s newsrooms.
I will, and do give Trump props when he does things that I think are good for this country.
I admit that a part of me loves it when he skewers some arrogant pundidiot as they have never been skewered before. I like it when his silliness leads to such silliness from his detractors that his silliness seems less silly.
The crazy is everywhere.
There are now 9426 genders, by actual count and you can get arrested in California if you use the wrong one. That’s not all that crazy when you consider that it’s in California where crazy gets elected more often than elsewhere.
Governor Moonbeam and his 64 billion dollar bullet train to nowhere? Gender arrest seems almost normal after that.
Feminist writer Jill Filipovic in a recent New York Times op-ed claimed that Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer were responsible for Hillary losing the election.
Many of the male journalists who stand accused of sexual harassment were on the forefront of covering the presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Matt Lauer interviewed Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump in an official “commander-in-chief forum” for NBC. He notoriously peppered and interrupted Mrs. Clinton with cold, aggressive, condescending questions hyper-focused on her emails, only to pitch softballs at Mr. Trump and treat him with gentle collegiality a half-hour later.
Mark Halperin and Charlie Rose set much of the televised political discourse on the race, interviewing other pundits, opining themselves and obsessing over the electoral play-by-play. Mr. Rose, after the election, took a tone similar to Mr. Lauer’s with Mrs. Clinton — talking down to her, interrupting her, portraying her as untrustworthy. Mr. Halperin was a harsh critic of Mrs. Clinton, painting her as ruthless and corrupt, while going surprisingly easy on Mr. Trump.
Yup, there you have it folks, they are/were not only pervs, they lost the election for Hillary. Down the rabbit hole she goes.
I haven’t even scratched the crazy surface. There is more crazy than I have the time or the energy to discuss. Some of it I don’t discuss – I just read it and sit goshwoggled into silence. I am in awe of the ability of some people to tie their own shoes when their brain is among the dear departed.
I hope you have a really great day and don’t run into too many of the crazies. Be careful if you do, I’m not sure if it’s catching or not. Given the way it’s spreading, it just might be.
This is, as always, an
