Garbage In, Garbage Out

November 14, 2016 , , ,

Selfish ignorant politicians are the product of a selfish ignorant population. Have we considered how co-dependent it is to re-elect the congress we love to hate?  The United States is a highly dysfunctional family with generational beliefs about a common enemy that may not exist.  We make the sovereign powers of the world pay attention to us while we display our lack of mature thinking.  I did vote this year, and always have, but I appreciate this joke by the late, great George Carlin.  Our attachment to politics is a very negative and fruitless folly.  The video includes graphic language and gestures that may not be appropriate for everyone.  When I think about how long this video has been in existence it makes it all the more poignant to me.  Pardon me, gentle reader, if this is not your kind of joke.  This joke is on all of us.

See, the problem is that everyone thinks their Senator or Representative is good and the problem is the rest of them. Maybe we need to force term limits on them so people have to vote for someone new.

I take comfort from the writings of H. L. Mencken, myself:

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

Thank you John for that very well aligned quote from Mr Mencken. All imaginary is the key to remember…

I love the way that George can turn an idea inside-out.

What a great commentary Pam! It’s very on target. I do appreciate George Carlin’s humor and ability to see the dysfunction. I wish that he wasn’t so on target but it is what it is.
