Well, Today is January 7, 2021. Yesterday the United States of America passed away. Chalk it up to COVID I guess: Over 328 Million Dead. May as well be. So, Sean… actually, regarding everyone who is talking, today, about yesterday, so what? You are all speaking at length about events of the past couple of years. Reminding us of this or that. So, who cares? Ask Marsha Blackburn. What about it? Ask Mitch McConnell. Ask the others who turned coat and ran yesterday. Think Mitch cares? He sounded more like Chuck than did Chuck. So, Sean, I ask “So What?” Tell me, where to now? The moon?
Does anyone remember Gov. Scott Walker and the 2011 siege of the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda by protesters (rioters)? Anyone remember the praise from the Left? MSNBC broadcasting live from there 24/7 I believe. Bussing rioters in. Oops, I’m sorry, not rioters… “protesters,” “Mostly Peaceful Protesters” that is. Remember that? “The people’s building”? Why are Republican officials so afraid of standing up for any beliefs? I guess they really do not have any. Just as full of BS as the next guy. Oops, sorry again, how crude of me… I mean the next “person.” New Congressional grammar rules you know. There goes the language! Where do we go from here?
Truly, we are in Biblical Times folks. Ever hear of the Tower of Babble? Genesis 11: 1-9. In verse 5, God says he will “confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” Only, this time, God is letting us outsmart ourselves, we are making our own language non-understandable, incoherent. Language, it seems, is now just a lump of clay from which people feel free to shape and construe anything they want from. A sort of linguistic “Trompe-l’œil.” Words exist aside from any meaning. Words are now pictures in people’s minds. They mean something different to everyone. Remember, no absolute truth?
What happened there at Babble? Wikipedia calls it “an origin myth meant to explain why the world's peoples speak different languages.” A myth? Are you sure? I think it is bigger than that. Communication broke down. Seems to me we are now in the same place, metaphorically speaking that is. Yes, for those of you who purposely try and warp and misunderstand the language, I do not mean we are “in the same place” as in geographical location but in a figurative rather than literal sense. (FYI)
You hear the stupid debate speeches from both sides. They all say they want to “respect the will of the American People.” “Stand for the Constitution.” Tell me, what does that mean? Are they standing to the half of Americans that know the election was a fraud or to the half that wants to turn a blind eye? Same words, totally different meanings. A sort of “secret code.” Biblical! Its like a game of Tetras and we are the little cubes dropping one by one.
We just seem to want to be fed BS all day. Seriously, these politicians yesterday, for the most part, said nothing but double talk. I feel embarrassed that I ever donated a penny to any of them! Now, it has gotten totally overblown. The Airline Flight Attendants Union? They set policy now? Asking that Trump Supporters be banned from flights? I just heard that some individual state Attorney Generals want to prosecute people who went to DC yesterday? Pelosi wants to impeach Donald again? Maybe attack Trump with the 25th Amendment? Where was any push-back after years of political games played by the likes of Shiff, Nadler, etal? Republicans stand for nothing. Words like sedition and treason being tossed around in the media now? And these people praised the siege of the Wisconsin Capital Building in 2011?
Not to mention all of the burned buildings, burned cars, destroyed monuments, shuttered businesses, CHAP Zones, deaths, etc, etc. This was all patriotic? Remember the 2017 attacks where 9 individuals were arrested (but released I believe) at UC Berkeley when violence broke out in advance of a lecture by conservative speaker Ben Shapiro? Who is demanding to get to the bottom of that? Folks, we are being played for fools from both sides. Seattle, Portland, Kenosha, Wisconsin… Minneapolis, etc, etc, etc … Nothing. But heaven forbid yesterday’s still unexplained event in Washington, DC. What about that? One white female military veteran killed and nothing. Just a rush to judgement and a quick and easy way to finalize the theft of the 2020 election, lock, stock and barrel.
So, Sean and the others will continue to remind us about this stuff. Politicians will come on the radio and TV and make more double-talk. We will all buy new 5G cell-phones and download mp3s, post junk on Facebook, and, like frogs in a pot of cool water, we will boil in our own juices.
Joe Biden says he wants to be “President for all Americans.” Please tell me what this translates to and how this works.© Frank Louis
