Help, Confused-Dot-Com!

confused IV

As I sit “zoning out” watching CNN and other news programmes, I am continuously bombarded (as everyone else is) by thoughts and opinions (ad nauseum) of how bad Donald Trump is. They also continue to accentuate every negative thing with regard to his candidacy  and delineate those of the other candidates even to the point of praising them – especially Hillary Clinton.  I mean it is amazing how much the “classified email issue” as well as the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation has been downplayed in the media!

In other words, the main conversation is about “How to stop Trump”.

Election I

By doing this, don’t they run the risk of driving more people to him by putting on full display the bias nature of their opinions in the media?  In some respects, the more you assert the negatives of the “Bad Boy” the more you drive others to him. It’s sort of like telling a child about the evils of drugs and alcohol and emphatically forbidding them to try it thereby creating the desire to do the opposite especially if they are angry or distrustful of you as the messenger?

I personally believe this is part of the reason why the Donald is so popular.  The electorate, in general are disgusted and distrustful of both the political establishment and the media and if they are vehemently arguing how bad something is, then by default the opposite therefore must be true?  I believe the key to effectively dealing with the “Trump Factor” is to honestly address the concerns of disaffected constituents that seem to be flocking to him regardless of whether or not one believes in the validity of those concerns.  Continued attacks on Trump will only drive more to his camp effectively creating more divisiveness among the electorate.

Just some thoughts, concerns (and confusion) with respect to the politically staged circus confused Ithat we seemed to be mired in.

So this is what politicians and the media are turning us all into – mindless zombies!

PLEASE, HEAVEN ABOVE MAKE THEM STOP (or at the very least shut them up)!

Thoughts on Politics

March VIII

Presidential candidates are in search of wins in primaries and caucuses on the road to controlling the White House by pandering to voters.  Some using fear, some lacking integrity, some playing on racial and gender sympathies, some arguing back and forth like children and some with vision but lacking the presence of leadership

The media hopes to win viewers and possibly influence voters with repetitive insipid, mind-numbing dialogue and bias, conspicuous reporting

Segments of the American population want to win by having their interests represented regardless of the cost to the national cohesion of the nation or its well-being

Winning at any cost is the driving conscious mechanism inhabiting our collective psyche

Ironically because of the aforementioned, no matter who wins – we all are losers…..Wizard

EXCEPT FOR THE MAN (AND WOMAN) BEHIND THE CURTAIN PROJECTING THEMSELVES AS THE WIZARD OF THE IGNORANT AND THE DAMNED!

It is evident that the majority of us are destined to take the blue pill and continue on sleeping.

No matter, there seems to be the illusion of plenty food, drugs, spirits and shopping to occupy our senses – for now!

March Musings

March III
Just musing on:
  • How fast the month of March arrived.  Time is flying by this year and I’m really not March Ihaving fun!
  • Can the United States survive another month of Bernie, Hillary, Donald, Ted and Alice? Uh, I meant Marco not Alice though he really seems like the girl in the Republican Band.  I believe the philosophical ethos expressed by all the candidates is worthless chatter as they are all in bed together politically anyway. Just two sides of the same coin am I right!
  • What are the running odds on who will be the next US president. I was hoping for 1/1,000,000 for all of the above but then I thought to myself – why care! If this is the best that we can do – we are Really in trouble!
  • I wonder why they are calling March 1 in the US “Super Tuesday?” It seems rather rotten and mediocre to me
  • Really anticipating the Batman versus Superman film.  I believe it will be an March Vunprecedented block-buster. Why Can’t we have superheroes like Batman and Superman to save us? Oh, perhaps the reason is that most inhabitants of this world truly don’t care about being saved.  The important preoccupations seem to be with:
    •  how much more money can I accumulate while avoiding having to pay taxes on it
    • can I consume enough drugs and alcohol to forget how f**ked up this life is
    • can I avoid dying long enough to get my hands on the latest fashions or carcinogen inducing gadgets to invoke envy in my family, friends, and everyone else while ignorantly making corporations richer
    • can I continue to afford to waste food, water and other resources without it catching up to me in MY lifetime
    • what does it matter that most of our civic leaders lack honesty and integrity.  The fact that they make me feel important while courting my vote or make me to believe that they are placing my particular self-interests above that of collective society or their own while blatantly robbing me blind and extinguishing my faith in government is not a problem. Just as long as I get something out of the deal
  • When will everyone in the United States come to realise that mainstream media is more entertainment and public opinion rather than news
  • How many more terrorist attacks can we count on this month to continue to drive selfish, autocratic changes in society designed to curtail liberties and freedoms? By the way, is anyone planning on purchasing a new Apple IPhone?  And speaking of terrorists, has anyone wondered why ISIS stopped beheading prisoners for publicity? Did that go out of style for them? Oh, and what ever happened to the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram? Is anything being done to retrieve them or were they just the political flavour of the month – whatever month that was?  (Things that should make you go – “Hmmm”)
  • Is the manipulation of the financial markets over now or are there still a few more that have to be bankrupted before we can have a little peace and quiet (just a little)
  • Can we expect bright performances at this years summer Olympics or will there be dark days overshadowing the events? Maybe, just maybe, mosquitos infected with Zika will score most of the goldMarch IV
  • Will there be any strange or unusual UFO sightings this year now that scientist believe that there is another planetary body making its way through our solar system? By the way, why is it that aliens prefer to speak Latin? I’m not quite sure but I  could ask the (Ab duct ees).   Sorry, mea culpa
  • Should we really start taking planetary climatic changes seriously now that Leonardo DiCaprio mentioned it in his acceptance speech at the Oscars?
  • Will March truly be the month of MADNESS? If so, will the government at least give March VIIus a break on the cost of synthesised medications that will eventually drive us to an early grave? Or at the very least provide fitted straight-jackets instead of one-size fits all.
  • Oh, and exactly how many licks does it take to get to the centre of a Tootsie Roll lollipop anyway? Some wise owl whooted it was three but I believe that it is a whole lot more. (Look it up!)

 

Regardless  of what comes, I wish everyone continued growth, maturity, health, safety, prosperity and wisdom.

P.S.  Beware the Ides of March. Julius didn’t and look what happened to him!

Thoughts on Politics

The Republican Presidential Debate was quite brutal Thursday night.  Trump got beat up by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio as they took their turns on him much like Will Smith got beat in his video “Parents Just Don’t Understand”.  Trump took the abuse well though in my humble opinion. He hung tough unlike Rubio did when Gov. Christie caught him in headlights!

 

…or could you compare the beating he took to being tag teamed by the wrestlers – The Road Warriors?

In retrospect Cruz and Rubio would be better compared to the “Rock-n-Roll Express beating up on King Kong Bundy!

Again, it’s just humour everyone. Hope you had a laugh. I know I sure did!
