In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Useful Idiots

 Do you think the censors of social media realize what they're doing? I don't. If they did, they'd realize what they do can as easily be turned against them. They could find they're not only disrespected, they're considered criminals, and the public will demand they be punished for their actions. 

Some might think that could never happen, but the past reveals censorship ends with tyranny, and the created ignorance always leads to terrible hardships for citizens. Those that condone, or practice, the censorship always become useful idiots. They either lick the feet of their masters, or accept their "reeducation" in the camps built to house those unwilling to accept their loss of liberty.

  1. You're right, and unfortunately, if the country continues to lean closer to a more socialist doctrine, the media will be more useful than ever as the purveyor of propaganda. The media will never go away.

    1. I think the rural areas will always reject Socialism. It contradicts the basic understanding of unrestricted bartering.

      The urban areas are different. They are contaminated by the "educated" that are clueless of how their existence depends on people with the goal of improving their lives without government intervention.

    1. If schools would educate about the horrors of Socialism, nobody would embrace the tyranny.

  3. The only problem with socialism is it has never been practiced by benevolent oligarchs like George Soros.
    When we get it here, it will be BETTER.

    1. That's what they say. We're just too dumb to realize this time it will work.

  4. They know. They took the ticket. This was a conscious choice.

    1. It was, and makes me wonder what brand of brain washing detergent was used.
