It’s Just A Little Inconvenience

Ten years ago, if I had written about the absurdities that are taking place now in society, culture and politics, it would have been viewed as drug addled delusion.

If we had forecast that the entire planet would fall under the spell of political operatives and forced to cower behind paper masks to repel an illness that statistically has no more lethality than a seasonal flu, it would sound off the charts preposterous.  But as we know, this is what has happened.  We recall that at the outset, a quarantine period of 14 days was required to quell the chances of a greater outbreak.

Fourteen days…how bad can that be?  Now, nine months later, it doesn’t appear as if restrictions will be abating any time soon.  Indeed, it’s going the other way.  Despite all the assurances of containment, herd immunity, yada, yada, yada, the danger apparently is even more ominous than it was almost a year ago.  As a consequence, new improved restrictions are being imposed by the political geniuses who are of course following the science.

All of a sudden, restricting people at Thanksgiving gatherings, religious assemblies and for that matter, anything to do with normal human interaction is to be restricted or outright banned.  Some rulers have even declared that Christmas is cancelled.  So, in order to curtail an imaginary pandemic, people cannot work, cannot go out to eat, cannot shop, cannot have friends over, cannot have family gatherings, cannot practice their religions and cannot even circulate in public without paper masks.  But, apparently, these are only minor inconveniences in order to serve the greater good.  We’d sure like to know who this greater good guy is.

On the very near horizon is the possibility of forced vaccinations and certificates thereof in order to access such common societal things such as banking, work, school, restaurants and air travel.  Recall that the left loved to use the scenario portrayed in the novel The Handmaiden’s Tale as a warning of a dark, dystopian controlled society.  The greatest surprise is not that ideological tyrants impose what they can get away with on their subjects; it’s that people comply even as their most fundamental freedoms are being cut off.  Worse than that, people are actually exhorting others to co-operate.  It’s Stockholm Syndrome on steroids.

We are asked to believe that an obviously afflicted dementia patient had won the popular vote for President of the United States when he couldn’t convince enough people to fill a phone booth during his total of 2 campaign rallies.  Despite clear mathematical and anecdotal evidence of voting corruption, the partisans are insisting on the veracity of the clearly manipulated results.  We are told that riots, killings and property destruction in support of his candidacy are actually peaceful displays of opinion.

If all of these measures are implemented to keep us safe, I think we’d all rather roll the dice and live dangerously instead.

Well If Joe Can Do It….

At this time, hundreds if not thousands of people are thinking to themselves; well if he can do it, I certainly can! We are referring of course to running for public office; not necessarily for the highest job in the land, but for any political office.  Who knew that not only is the bar set very low, but that there’s barely a chalk line in the sand.

The phenomenon that is Joe Biden has created an epiphany for those out there who have no real life skills and have made nothing but bad decisions in their lives.  For a guy like Joe to aspire to run for public office of any kind, much less the Presidency of the United States, is chutzpah of the highest order.   According to all of the recent revelations about his life’s escapades, he has enough skeletons in his closet to fill a small gym.  This should be ample encouragement for every individual out there with only minor blots on their life record such as a murder conviction or an assault allegation, to overcome their reticence and just run for public office.  It’s like those TV commercials offering you instant loan approval even if you’ve been bankrupt.  Your credit is good!

In fact, from observation, moral rectitude of any kind is actually an impediment to holding successful public office.  The ones that seem to survive the longest at the public trough all have common characteristics.  Many are lawyers, but graduating at the bottom of a class of 3000 from a mail order law program is all that’s needed.  You don’t need to actually practice law, only have it on your CV.  These people often have little tether to reality as their arguments are so preposterous that they’ll deny having made them once confronted.  Their only real skill is to be predictably mendacious on any issue of importance and to be able to take both sides of an issue with a straight face.  John Kerry of course is the poster boy for this trait with his infamous ‘I was for the war before I was against it’ comment.

Joe Biden however, is the new gold standard for political aspirants who never thought their flawed lives would allow them a chance at holding public office.  With a totally straight face, he tells those who will listen, that after 47 years, virtually his entire adult life, spent in the offices of government and having achieved zero results of any kind, that he will now have the solution to all the problems that America faces.  A man who has never run a business or signed a paycheck somehow has the ability to run the planet’s largest and most complex economy but has been keeping it secret for all these years.  A man who has been recorded as being on the wrong side of every current social issue is now taking the other side as their champion.  The most damning recent revelations now show a man who is supposed to be the champion for the American people being caught red handed accepting graft from foreign nations.

In a sane world, any hint of even one of the transgressions attached to him would disqualify him from getting voted dog catcher in any backwater town in the nation.  But in today’s world, the tactic is to wave them off, characterize them as Russian lies and have the media play clean up.  Joe Biden is hardly the only person in public office to hold so many of the characteristics that regular people find reprehensible.  It’s just that’s he’s so damn good at it and he is perfect for a gullible public.
