I was a fan of Babylon 5, the old SF television series about the “dawn of the third age.” Sorry, Joe; ain’t gonna happen.
This age we’re living in…
We have a presidential candidate who can’t remember that he was a vice president, nor what office he’s currently running for. He likely won’t remember his name by election day; he already thinks he’ll be part of the Harris administration.
His main opponent is the guy who has done more damage to the Second Amendment than any Dem since Billy Jeff Clinton, but is running as the pro-2A candidate. People believe him.
We have “fiery, but mostly peaceful” riots pretty much every night now.
Yes, the media calls fire-bombing, bombing, shooting, assault, destruction, and looting peaceful free speech. Objecting to that is violence.
Oops, the rioters peaceful protestors say that isn’t looting, it’s reparations. Except when they say the looters reparations redistributionists aren’t them.
On the rare occasions that the media looks at their own screens and notices BLMers chanting “Black lives matter” and Black Bloc Antifa just… screaming as they destroy a city, said media declares those are really white nationalist trying to make the Marxists look bad.
With video and a Criminal Complaint outlining how a crazed mob chased down a kid and beat him, trying to kill him, the prosecutor charges the kid with murder.
We have a “pandemic” the experts would have us believe is going to kill us all unless we emulate Lucas’ THX-1138 for the rest of our lives. I personally know one person in the entire world who actually had ChinCOVID. That person had a really bad cold and survived.
Let’s talk about ChinCOVID: It’s killed over 200,000 people in the US… once you include all the gun shot, alcohol, poisoning, motorcycle crash, and surgical complication victims. Of course, of the 200K, 94% were folks who had, might have had, or could have had COVID but actually died died of an average of 2.6 lethal co-morbidities. Last time I could find the numbers, the US monthly death number (all causes) was down from last year. But panic. I especially liked the part where the governor of the state that killed several times as many people with COVID came down here to tell us to wear masks… as he didn’t wear a mask. Have you noticed how these folks keep taking off their masks when they step up to the podium to tell us to put them on? Of course, all that came after they told to not wear masks because they don’t work. But… science. Both times.
And there’s a Senate bill that would make it a felony to mention that ChinCOVID came from China. That’s why I started using the term “ChinCOVID.”
Pro sports can’t figure out why ratings and revenues are crashing and burning. It’s a puzzler since they did their damnedest to demonize their prime market.
The food industry is purging marketing materials of Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, The Indian Maid, and anything else not white, to show their support of non-white minorities. No word on whether Nike will purge all the black athletes they use in ads (say, don’t they still use slave labor in China?).
People think nothing of livestreaming their own mental breakdowns — screaming, shaking, babbling incoherently — as they drive down the street because the prez might dare to nominate a new SCOTUS justice… as the fucking Constitution says he has to .
California can’t keep the electricity flowing (which, given PG&E’s line maintenance, probably keeps them from starting more wildfires), but is going to make people drive electric cars.
Oh, and Candidate “What’s my name again”? His puppeteers are running on a platform of emulating California and doubling down, along with disarming the nation so we can’t raise objections.
Cities and states are mass releasing inmates and arrestees, encouraging riots fiery but peacefully violent protests, and defunding the police. NYC’s de Blasio doesn’t understand why crime is skyrocketing there; must have something to do with the Second Amendment.
Mathematics is a false, white patriarchy concept, and engineering programs are shifting to inclusive social justice instruction. Think about that when your phone stops working or the wings fall off your plane.
Schools are suspending kids — even sending the cops out — for having toys in their homes, because with streaming video instructiondoctrination, homes are school property now.
Sex has nothing to do with allosomes, genetics.
California (always good for Apocalyptic stupidity) is decriminalizing pedophilia, because it’s not fair to penalize same-sex assailants differently than those who assault children of the opposite sex.
Meanwhile, it’s homophobic to claim that LGBTQKW&JDRKEDN&JKMDM_WTFwhateverthehell might want to have sex with children. If some don’t, why does Cal need to decriminalize something that never happens?
Black multimillionaire celebrities can lecture me about my white privilege, which includes an income that wouldn’t requiring filing a tax return except that I’m self-employed and have to file quarterly regardless.
Folks with government-supplied iPhones costing upwards of a grand can use them to post rants about my privilege, too. It isn’t really feasible to reply to them with my five year-old, pay as you go flip-phone. War is peace. Violence is speech. Poverty is privilege.
Colleges are dropping ACT/SAT test scores in favor of skin color, because scores are racist. I’m sure they’ll be admitting those folks to engineering programs.
Oh, yeah. That kid charged with murder for not letting the peaceful mob murder him? Illinois cops say they arrested him on a fugitive from justice warrant, for fleeing charges that weren’t filed until the day after he was arrested. And that was after he attempted to surrender to the Kenosha Keystone Kops and they told him to go away. Go figure. He should have surrendered in Chicago, where they’d just turn him loose anyway.
Social Justice Theory — in other words, paranoid schizophrenia — has become national policy for a nuclear-armed country. That should work out well…
Given that the prez candidate who threatened to nuke America is likely to be Harris Biden’s “gun control” czar.
That’s a very brief sampling of the US. Check the international headlines and no one else is much better. A lot are worse. The US is fucked, and given the irrational international reliance on the Dollar, when we go, they go.
The dawn of the third age? We’re at the dusk of the last.
