So, I’ve been under a form of coercion for the last three days. Between shoveling snow and shoveling paperwork I’ve been buried alive. Now I’ve been reading the news and opinion for the last few days and thinking about what might be interesting. There are developments on both sides of the Ukraine war and there are interesting developments in Kevin McCarthy locating his backbone but I just haven’t had any time to contemplate, cogitate, and rhapsodize on these themes.
Instead, I’ve been concentrating on just what awful people inhabit the cesspool that is the Uniparty. Schiff, Swalwell and Schumer. And that’s just the esses. The bees, ems and the pees are no better. It’s a whole alphabet full of sleazebags, crumb-bums and crooks. But at some point, during my second day of shoveling I wasn’t too cold from the weather or too hot from the exertion and I was feeling curiously relaxed by the rhythm of throwing the snow over my shoulder that I started thinking about the bright side of our present situation.
For one thing McCarthy said categorically that Schiff and Swalwell were disqualified from being on the Intelligence committee because they were, respectively, a documented liar about classified information and a purchaser of sexual favors from Chinese spies. And I thought, “Hey that’s right, McCarthy said these two guys are scumbags and he wasn’t afraid of hurting their feelings like that RINO Paul Ryan would have been. He just said it as a matter of fact. That’s kind of fun.
And he’s going to try to keep Ilhan Omar off a committee too. He’ll have to whip his whole party to make it happen but he’ll probably succeed because she’s a lousy human being and probably almost no one likes her anyway. And that’s kind of fun too.
And McCarthy looks like he’s going to at least try to negotiate with the White House on some kind of budget deal. Sure, he may cave and go along with the continuing resolution on the obscenely bloated so-called budget because all the media outlets are screeching every hour on the hour that the sky is falling because we won’t be able to send out the welfare checks to the illegal aliens. But at the least he won’t just roll over and add another $100 billion for Ukraine as far as I can see. And he won’t ban guns by calling them assault weapons so that’s pretty good too.
And then I heard that Mike Pence found classified documents in his fanny pack or his nap room and I started to laugh. Now Mike Pence is a threat to our democracy. Who’s next, Jimmy Carter, Henry Kissinger? Should they rifle through Grant’s Tomb to see if there were any Civil War secret weapons that might end up in Russian hands? Our Deep State have beclowned themselves in the last few months. Sure, they’re a metastatic cancer on the lifeblood of our republic but they’re also the Keystone Cops. Certainly, they destroy the lives of many innocent Americans but they’re also pathetic losers. And it’s almost certain that they’ve already sown the seeds of their own destruction.
Any society that descends down the path of surveillance state eventually implodes from loss of legitimacy. Eventually everyone pretends to believe the lies but no one actually does. And one day pretend loyalty won’t be enough to save the state from a catastrophe and after that you get the Soviet Union and East Germany and Romania in the 1990’s. And if they’re not careful they’ll end up with what Nicolae and Elena Ceaușescu got, a kangaroo court like they gave their victims and a firing squad.
So, there’s no big news this week. Just little stuff. But I must be in a good mood because I had all these pleasant thoughts while shoveling. Well, exercise is good for you. Maybe it’s good for the soul too.
