Random Thoughts




Question:


Do current political currents require is to park our brains in deep storage?  I mean, really! What do our “leaders” take us for?


  1. Our President says to Putin, “You fucked around with our elections.” Putin says “Nah, don’t believe what your CIA, FBI, and NSA say. Give me the details as to how they came to that conclusion.”
So does our experienced Presidential  diplomat tell Putin exactly how our computer experts figured it out?  I’d be more nervous about the answer to that question if I thought Trump had even the vaguest idea of how we learned the truth.  Besides, our president is still simultaneously claiming i) it didn’t happen at all, and ii) it did happen but it was done by some teenager. (This may not be the “fat” teenager from the campaign. This may be just a new teenager of any size.)
It may not make any difference, because the Russian ambassador, in a post-meeting press conference, said the President “accepted” Putin’s denial. Secretary of State Tillerson, on the other hand, did not contradict the Russian ambassador, but didn't agree with it either. Why would any sentient observer believe either of these guys? They are consistent in one respect: they treat the public like mushrooms; keep em in the dark and feed em shit.


    2.  After the previous congressional break, the “fake news” established media was chock full of videos of Republican congressmen taking heat at Town Halls for voting in favor of the House bill on health care. They were scorched. In my district, my Congressman, Republican Lee Zeldin, who has voted for outright repeal of Obamacare, is now on his July 4 break and has pledged to “meet with his constituents.” But no town meetings for him! Instead, only one-on-one meetings “with the congressman or a staff member.”  Zeldin, who also voted for the House healthcare bill that President Trump labelled “mean,” is taking no chances.  He has announced that “no videotaping or recording of the meetings will be permitted”!  Huh, how is that consistent with keeping his constituents advised of his views? Unbelievably, he explains that this policy is to “protect constituents privacy.”  I mean really, how stupid do they think we are? Whose privacy is being “protected’’ when a constituent chooses to record and publish his meeting with his elected Representative? Ahh, the First Amendment is a nuisance anyway. Let’s ignore it. Feed em shit.


But ya know what? Trump is in the White House, and Zeldin is in the House of Representatives. So either they are smarter than we think they are, or we really are as dumb as they think we are.


Sad.


Finally, it is my duty to report that even the striped bass are behaving like terrorists. Evidence suggests they are on a hunger strike. I could swear I saw a pattern in the floating seaweed at the Point yesterday. Coulda sworn it spelled out, “Fuck you. Eat chicken.’’

A bientot.
