Paranoia Is Merely Perfect Awareness

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

The King in the old joke says: “I know I’m paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?”  In this election, I don’t think Conservatives are paranoid enough.

We know from history that Liberals routinely cheat in elections.  Why shouldn’t they?  The integrity of the process is secondary to obtaining the correct result.  The ends justify the means.  And if they can’t win by cheating at the polls, Liberals litigate before Liberal judges to steal elections (looking at you, Al Franken).

Liberals cheated in 2016 to get Hillary the nomination, to spend other candidates’ money for her, and to spy on the Trump campaign.  They stuffed enough ballot boxes that some districts had more votes than voters.  But they were shocked to learn they hadn’t cheated enough.  Trump still won.

I doubt that will happen this time.  The polling places in Miami ran out of ballots on Monday.  I suspect those ballots are already marked, sitting in trunks of cars, waiting to be counted.

No need for you to stand in line, we’ve already cast your ballot, several times.  You can thank us later.

Satire?   Yes, but the line between satire and fact these days is almost nonexistant.

When “Babylon Bee” is a better source of news than CNN, you know we’ve got a problem.

  1. The beauty of being a pessimist is that you’re never disappointed. Things can only turn out well or merely as you expected anyway. I’m one too.

  2. Hammering on that Obama was secretly born in Kenya turned out to be brilliant market research. That the claim is provably false and makes no sense when you think about it yet caught on with white Republicans showed Trump they could be led to believe things simply because they wanted to believe them. While other politicians were afraid to be caught in a lie. Trump made lies into his product differentiator. The further he gets from truth the more his base sees him as the only one brave and honest enough to say these things.

    boy, are you saying that Hillary didn’t cheat Bernie out of the nomination?

    speaking of lies do you remember this one boy:
    “[T]oday I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office. This will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we’ve long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay – and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control.” – BHO
    now wasn’t that a beauty?

  4. I’m glad they changed the day to vote republican to Wednesday. The line will be shorter the second day.

  5. emery, hey boy do you remember this golden oldie:

    “We’ve got to spend some money now to pull us out of this recession. But as soon as we’re out of this recession, we’ve got to get serious about starting to live within our means, instead of leaving debt for our children and our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.” – BHO

    when it comes to lies that BHO can sure sin them.

    not to worry boy I got dozens of these ready for you.

  6. Obama should be grateful he can identify his parents, and forget about trying to convince people he knows where it happened.

  7. Señor Bodine: “We’ve got to get rid of the $19 trillion in debt. I think I could do it fairly quickly. I would say over a period of eight years. And I’ll tell you why.” ~ Donald Trump

    The difference between Trump and Nixon is that Nixon was clever enough to time his inflationary boom for the third and fourth year of his first term, not the first two years.

    When Trump says we have strong economy it’s a bit of an exaggeration, and demonstrates that we’ve failed to move away from short-term economic thinking. The effects of Trump’s tax cuts will fizzle out — arguably, they have already.

    All that will be left behind is a ballooning deficit, which has already increased by 17%, from $665 billion to $779 billion, under Trump and his Republican Congress.
    If there’s an economic downturn, interest rates will still be fairly low, and fiscal stimulus won’t have the effect that it should, because Trump has done the very opposite of what should be done: he’s running deficits despite steady economic growth. In the end, taxpayers will have to pay, as they have had to pay for the bailout of the agricultural sector, hit by Trump’s trade war. Of course, not all industries or businesses were bailed out: only the special ones. Trump’s administration has perfected the practice of crony capitalism.
