Joe…Joe…Over here…

The Democratic candidate running to become the next President of the United States could not have been made up by a work of fiction. Teams of professional writers could not have come up with the comedy gold offered by the extemporaneous utterances of Joe Biden.  Joe Biden is a caricature of himself.

His record of 47 years of public service doesn’t exactly exude a record of thoughtful and effective public service.  As someone pointedly observed, Joe has been on the wrong side of every policy issue he has ever backed.  It doesn’t help that he’s been a Democrat all of these years since that explains away most of his poor legislative worldview.

But now, once again, he’s thrown his figurative hat into the ring to become the leader of the free world.  At this point in the process, people will have had a chance to assess his life’s record of work of 47 years working exclusively in government employment.  Voters can scrutinize his policies and their resulting effect on their lives.  Interestingly enough, there’s enough videotape of his impassioned arguments for any number of issues that he’s championed over the years which will show him decidedly on both sides of those issues. 

And this is why Joe’s not known as much for his intellectual gifts as he is for being likeable.  How can you not like a guy who is for everything and anything?  Recently however, Joe’s had to come out and stand definitively for or against some pretty core issues that affect the lives of Americans. Things such as whether or not they would be okay with being beat up in their streets, accosted in their homes, having their businesses looted and burned; simple stuff.

While it rarely happens, when Biden speaks to the public and takes questions, his appearances draw the crowds who are there only to sadistically witness the latest verbal train wreck.  Every session is like an episode of Jeopardy.  Vegas has an active over/under betting line on how many times he says, ‘hey man’ during a speech.

It’s pretty clear to any observer that Joe’s convictions on any topic are as flimsy as his tortured rhetoric.  You can virtually see his handlers standing just a few feet away ready to squirrel him offstage to be replaced by a sign stating that “we are experiencing technical difficulties”.  This can be explained away of course by his age; but upon looking back on some of his old speeches, it may not be just age.  He may really be that vapid.

So the point of the discussion is this: Pollsters regularly claim that either the incumbent Donald Trump or the contender Joe Biden is leading in their polls.  Those polls always show an ‘undecided’ vote.  We can state categorically that there is no such thing as an undecided vote; especially with all that’s happened in the last 6 months.  Only two possibilities exist.  One is that ‘undecided’ means they told the pollster to piss off, or that two, those responding are genuine morons.

It is impossible for any rational person to have lived through the past 6 months of the nation’s existence and have no opinion on who would make the best leader for the next 4 years.  It’s not exactly Sophie’s choice.

Few people that I know of (in fact none), want to wake up in world where an avowed Marxist and racist organization sets the tone for national policy; where the nation can be shut down for an indefinite time because of some wacko medical wonks; and where the President of the nation needs an English interpreter every time he speaks, even though it’s his only spoken language.

If such a thing as an ‘undecided’ voter actually exists, it’s far better off for everyone if they don’t vote.  These are the idiots who are tortured by chocolate or vanilla at Homer’s. If people are still vacillating over whether Joe is their guy given his 47 year record of incompetence, they should not be allowed to influence the lives of people who are not so otherwise mentally challenged. For these lyin’ dog faced pony soldiers,  it means that Darwinism is at a low ebb.


Mask Of Tragic Comedy

Masks have now gone mainstream as their deployment is being mandated across the entire breadth of our lives.  As in all things American, it wasn’t good enough to simply have just one style of mask, it was necessary to make fashion statements as well.  Hence all manner of stylish face coverings are now available from dollar stores to on line sources allowing people to be individuals: in a me too kind of way.  The marketing for this new cultural fixture is so pervasive that they are worn even when the chance of infection, the original reason for them, is vastly remote.  Driving in your own car for example; bathing in your own shower; riding on a motorcycle or rock climbing.  It’s even important to wear masks while posting on Instagram.  Imagine that.

This public mania falls on the heels of the last great hysteria which happened only recently.  Does anyone remember the hoarding of toilet paper now?  Do we recall the occasional fights that broke out over purchases of Charmin at Costco?  Do we recall those nutters that hoarded TP  as if it were an essential survival item like canned beans, freeze dried foods and bullets are for Preppers?

Only a few years from now, people will look back with amusement ( and hopefully a lot of anger) at the photos taken of their lives during this insane time.  There will be grad pictures, weddings, family gatherings, holidays, festivals and other precious times in which everyone will resemble bank robbers.  Look at the image of the Democratic nominees for President;  they look like they’ve just cleaned out the nearest Bank of America. There has been a massive push of propaganda that masks prevent the spreading of a virus that statistically over 99.5% of people recover from even if they happen to catch it.  People have been deluded to think that a mask will make them safe.  This is as laughable as the idea that shoulder pads on women’s dresses in the ’80’s made them appear more feminine.  As some have pointed out, if underwear doesn’t hold in the lovely fragrance of flatulence, a mask is not going to stop a deadly virus.

Life really does resemble art.  In 1842, Edgar Allen Poe published The Masque of The Red Death in which a Prince tries to avoid a plague by wearing masks and hiding in his room. They are exposed to a person who purportedly carries the Red Death under a mask but in fact had nothing tangible inside of it.  The Prince died anyway, though of fright not of plague.

Well the mask wearers may get the last laugh yet.  For us non mask wearers, we’ve probably been lucky to have survived the last 6 months in this viral soup which surrounds us. Our luck may yet run out, in which case, we’re taking photos of ourselves now for posterity.
