Friday Funnies

Sometimes (not always) I have to work, think, and exert some effort into the simplest of posts. And sometimes (for no other reason than luck), things just fall in my lap out of nowhere.

This funny fell into my lap. It is a headline of an article, which defines the very essence of this Presidency:

Joe Biden update: He meets on transparency today. But the meeting is closed

Let me tell you.... you just cannot make this stuff up.

(Ref: LA Times)

Don't you love when blogs write themselves?

Obama has held a closed meeting on government openess. He wanted the participants to be able to "speak freely".

LOL! Hilariously stupid. Sheesh.

Really, none of us has to work too hard to find comedy in this government...unfortunately, the end result isn't so funny.

Sometimes I wonder if they have any idea how they come across. Or do just think we're stupid? Never mind. I just answered my own question.

In some instances, I think they do think we are stupid. They are condescending pukes that think they need to decide what is best for all of us, like we can't possibly know what we need for ourselves. That's elitism at it's best and one of the things that caused the French Revolution and others.

On the other hand, there is an element that simply believes they have a right to do whatever they want, simply because they were elected to serve. They do it and dare us to do anything about. That's where the megalomania sets in, an exaggerated sense of empowerment.

In some ways, yes. But on the other hand, if there was no stupidity in government, blogs would be relegated to recipes, poetry, and other recreational discussions.

Now you know where the phrase "laugh until you cry" came from.
