I finally agree with something said by the (corrupt and dangerous) Clown-With-The-Funny-Hair’: “the United States is a stupid country”.
It is an extremely stupid country, because it allows crooks like him to not only survive but to thrive. Who would have imagined that a former president would side with and praise a strategic enemy of the nation? That is more un-American than anything investigated by Senator McCarthy. That borders on treason.
Of course, he will get away with treasonous statements, because the Democratic and people of his party are either weak or afraid. Whatever the future brings, people have it coming.
But, no worry: MAD is around the corner...
“Don’t Say Gaetz” Law Protects Florida’s Kids from Matt Gaetz
By Andy Borowitz
TALLAHASSEE (The Borowitz Report)—A proposed law that would ban any positive discussion of Representative Matt Gaetz in Florida’s classrooms is being debated in the Florida House.
The bill, which has been dubbed “Don’t Say Gaetz,” has been written to protect Florida’s children, its advocates said.
“Our high-school kids are exposed to many dangers on a daily basis,” said Carol Foyler, a Florida mother who supports the bill. “Clearly, though, no danger is greater than Matt Gaetz.”
Under the provisions of the bill, Florida high-school students would be required to take a semester-long course “about the warning signs that they are in proximity to Matt Gaetz, and how to prevent that from ever happening,” Foyler said.
“The solution to this problem is education,” she said. “You can’t just pray the Gaetz away.”
There are certain handy words, which politicians use to paint opponents.
Republicans love to label someone a “communist”, not having any idea how to define one and why someone is a threat.
Russians are now calling another government “Nazi”, which is very far from reality.
All governments love to call someone a “terrorist”.
And, Republicans who scream “communists” at the drop of liberal, democratic idea, are silent when their puppet master praises an actual communist.
Trump Fears Putin Is Too Distracted by Ukraine to Help Him with 2024 Campaign
By Andy Borowitz
PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)—In what appears to be a rift between two long-standing political partners, Donald J. Trump has blasted Vladimir Putin for being “too distracted” by the situation in Ukraine to help him with his 2024 campaign for President.
“He gave a long speech the other night, and was going on and on about Ukraine and didn’t mention me once,” Trump said. “This should never be allowed to happen in this country.”
Calling Putin “too low-energy” to deal with Ukraine and the 2024 U.S. election at the same time, Trump said that his erstwhile ally had “priorities that are very, very bad.”
“He’s spending all his time spreading disinformation about Ukraine when he could be spreading disinformation about Sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump said. “Quite frankly, Vladimir Putin is a disgrace.”
Trump revealed that he had called the Russian President several times in recent days but that his calls went straight to voice mail.
“When I was President, I could’ve spent all my time invading Canada, but I always took his calls,” Trump said.
Well, the world is a different place today. Twenty-four hour cable news has something moments to talk about.
Two years ago, a deadly virus attacked the world.
Now, a different kind of illness is threatening humanity: the possibility of nuclear war. That sounds drastic, but when a megalomaniac has his finger on the button, this can happen.
A man whose mind dwells in the past, using history and a false understanding of how the world has changed and people want to live has decided to invade a neighbour and deny their right to exist. Anyone using the word “nazi” to described a democratically elected government cannot be given the benefit of the doubt.
The Soviet Union once spread to about 50 miles to the east of where I live. I wonder if the border will be re-instated. If appeasement remains to flavour of the day, as it did after incursions in Georgia, Crimea, and Belarus, I expect Russian troops to be hunkering down not far from here.
One is no longer surprised when the world’s greatest liar and cheater does something. In character, even if no one has done this before. For the first time in history, a former president not only criticises a predecessor but also praises the enemy on the eve of a potential armed conflict. A crook who tried to/and is still attempting to destroy democracy will also get away with this despicable behaviour. Why? Because there are too many stupid, deluded, and pliable people in the world. If a Democrat uttered such words, Republicans would scream “treason”.
Republicans Support Democracy in Ukraine as Long as It Does Not Spread to U.S.
By Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a powerful statement, Republican congressional leaders said that they strongly support democracy in Ukraine, as long as it does not spread to the United States.
“Vladimir Putin should make no mistake,” the G.O.P. statement read. “We Republicans will do everything in our power to preserve democracy in Ukraine, and to keep it over there.”
Drawing a line in the sand, the Republicans argued that democracy “must be allowed to thrive within the territorial borders of Ukraine and should not be permitted to leak out into Florida, Texas, or Georgia.”
Calling Russian aggression “a slippery slope,” the G.O.P. declared, “If Vladimir Putin is allowed to undermine democratic norms in Ukraine, he will be emboldened to attack our proud American traditions of gerrymandering, disenfranchisement, and voter suppression.”
As Baldrick would say: he has a clever plan. The Little Prince wants to be king, so he infected the queen with a deadly virus. He will plead innocence and regret, but is dancing with glee around one of his many his houses. Finally, he will be able to prove to the world that he truly was born to rule. Of course, the world will notice what a buffoon his is with his silly costumes and plummy, incoherent uttering.
Scanning the television program, I noticed one titled “Discovery of Witches”. This got me thinking: why witches?
My conclusion was easily reached: witches were discovered/invented by men. Surely very early in evolution of humans, men figured out that they were physically superior but not always able to win arguments. They were threatened by strong, intelligent, opinionated, and domineering females. A clever plan to fight back was needed. Since they had come up with the ideas of god and Satan, they came up with an unprovable idea to control women. This worked better than they could have imagined, because women are still being accused of being witches.
