I Post Thar4 I R

Much has changed since the days of the philosophers studied in school

Students and crowds used to gather when these men spoke as they were no one’s fool

Today with social media anyone with a phone or a keyboard can hammer out a thought and become a new age sage

One’s inner musings in four misspelled sentences can become a proclamation on their Facebook page

Let’s take a look at look at a couple of these insightful pundits and see how their thoughts might be reflected in today’s society

Bear in mind the imagined posts on the Facebook page will be dripping with democratic piety

Plato: “Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.”

Today’s scholar: This virus is all the orange man’s fault and has nothing to do with Beijing

Descartes: “A state is better governed which has few laws and those laws strictly over served”

Today’s scholar: The way I see it, Nancy’s got arrows in her quiver and the law of the Constitution don’t need to be preserved

Plato: “Democracy passes into despotism.” That warning came from long ago

Today’s scholar: Hopefully Biden will win and we can be safe with forced lock downs, mask mandates and end Trump’s dog and pony show

Descartes: “Except our own thoughts, there’s nothing absolutely in our power”

Today’s scholar: Obama was a great president who associated with the common man and would never live in an ivory tower

Plato: “The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men”

Today’s scholar: Biden’s a good guy, he’ll pass the green deal, take the guns and support socialism. Can I get an amen?

Descartes: “I think, therefore I am.” This proves one might have more thought power than something slimy washed up on shore

However in some cases an amoeba might argue. Today’s scholar: I post thar4 I R.

BLM-Who’s It Really Helping

MEXICO-HONDURAS-US-MIGRATION-AFP PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2018
AFP Picture of the year

The megaphones are loud and the chanting relentless, people are injured and any effort to contain the violence is cause for a counterattack

Feeling cheated in life because of failures both perceived and real and it’s all the fault of America because the skin color is black

America is a pathetic place to live as skin color is the sole determinant of your lot in life

The high school diploma opens only entry level jobs, the pay can’t get you ahead and the media accelerates your strife

The new left is furious, three decades of socialist public education has reached the boiling stage

The democratic puppet masters are delighted as any opinion stated otherwise is a cause to enrage

The fanatical socialist democratic leaders have known for centuries to change the thought process it must be taught at a young age

Get them while they’re young and vulnerable as their open minds are easy to engage

Brainwashing was used by Hitler, currently used by Kim Jong-Un and our country’s socialist school teachers to educate our youth

America is a place to hate, freedom is to be controlled by the government, ambition is frowned upon and that’s the truth

It took years but the population as a whole is an election away from being in their control

Pull the cops off the streets, send the public behind barricaded doors and let mobs patrol

The question is in the end will this movement cause any group to advance

Or perhaps it’s an organized effort by the democrats to leave nothing to chance

Roads are blocked, businesses burned, monuments ripped down and people parade

When the harsh reality to this mob rule demonstration is the participants are being played

Has this movement improved the impoverished or quelled the hunger in a small child

Blame it on the opposition, their idea of working for a living, tolerance of others and family life is to be reviled

Will this idea of new American government dependency be embraced

Or will the people in the movement wind up being further displaced

Will the human resource person in trying to manage diversity scrutinize the black job candidate

If employed would this person fit in, be a team player and pull her weight

Or would there exist a sense of chip on the shoulder entitlement based on the color of her skin

Feasibly it would be easier to go with the Latino candidate’s appreciation of employment and that would be a win win.

Never Buy A Pig In A Poke

pigpoke

Approximately 500 years ago the English serfs had an expression

That one shouldn’t buy an item sight unseen before taking possession

The saying goes “I will never bye a pyg in the poke

Thers many a foule pyg in a feyere clocke”

Pronounce the phrase phonetically and you’ll get the drift

The Olde English knew without first inspecting, one can be given a short shrift

Currently a candidate running for President voices his campaign speeches while hiding in his poke

He will not take even softball questions from his fawning media as his handlers feel he will choke

The man has been in office 47 years but cannot tell an audience what he achieved

Sir Walter Scott aptly stated, “What a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive.”

The candidate can only list accomplishments made when peeking from behind Obama’s skirt

Without the use of multiple teleprompters, trying to sound Presidential apparently might cause the brain to over exert

So while the basement dweller hollers from his subterranean window how his programs would benefit the US population

Both Putin and Xi if possible would cast a democratic ballot as there would be no stopping world domination

The pig in the poke campaign should be a sign of the complete democratic collapse

Just don’t bother the candidate between one and two as he insists on his naps
