Bizarro World


Recommended Posts

Remember that cube copy of Earth from the Superman comics, Bizarro World, where everyone is a twisted copy of the actual Superman characters?

 

I feel like I'm there right now.

 

Cops, charged to protect the public and enforce the law, doing neither.

 

Police officers, again with highly visible authority, choosing to kneel at a time when we need their strength and undivided devotion to the rule of law.

 

Lawyers, educated in elite schools and employed in white shoe firms, spouting Socialist or anarchist hatred for America (after taking an oath to abide by the Constitution) and tossing Molotov cocktails at a police van; others, who formerly held high positions in the Federal government, bailing the bombers out of jail (and the Court granting bail to an obvious high threat criminal).

 

Thousands committing assaults, batteries, massive property damage, arson, burglary, attempted murders, and more assorted felonies than you can count by claiming they were driven to it by the death of a man they never met, never knew and never cared about in life, and totally diluting any claim of justified anger at racism by cops by descending into an orgy of lawlessness, even after the alleged wrongdoers have been arrested and charged with major crimes.

 

Politicians, doing nothing meaningful, or trying to look sympathetic to certain voting blocks by expressing fake concern, anger or regret.

 

Politicians, using these events to justify "the remaking of America".

 

Politicians, using these events to justify another round of campaigning on a "Law and Order" platform.

 

The media, again totally abrogating their responsibility to accurately report facts.

 

Bizarro World - the place where everything and everyone is the opposite of what it and they should be.

 

Let me out of here.

I expect things to get worse until after the election.   I am also not optimistic about after the election either.

Could be living in an episode of the Twilight Zone, if so I think the channel is stuck.

I'm with you, LL.  I keep hoping I will wake up and things will be back to normal.  Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen.

For starters, Birth Of a Nation, Ku Klux Klan... and lots more.  Lots.

 

(Edit:  For what it's worth, he was a good ol' Democrat.)  

 

(Edit 2:  Anyone ever heard of a Wilson statue being torn down? <_<)

I'm going to quit watching the news.  It's just too depressing.  I was much happier when I was ignorant and unenlightened.

You’ve been watching the news all this time? I quit several years ago. I finally got tired of talk/news radio and WSB a few weeks ago. I’m done with it. Same story every day til something else comes up that can hold steam for a few weeks. Rush, Hannity, Erickson, Beck, pick your pundit, they don’t tell you anything new or anything of any use or any perspective that makes a difference in your life or anything that  you could not figure out or sort your way through. And much of it doesn’t matter in my day to day life anyway. The only thing remotely useful is the extended weather forecast. Even then, ya gotta poke your head out the window and figure it out yourself.
Y’all that keep watching the news, more power to ya. Y’all are gluttons for anxiety and high blood pressure. Personally I find most all of y’all, except for Capt Bill Burt, smart enough to amble through life without “the news.”

Wow.  Gets more bizarre almost by the hour...   :huh:

 

Minneapolis City Council President Jeremiah Ellison - son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison:  "I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA!"   :blink:

 

He also says he's going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department :(

When politicians make off the wall comments like this they are just playing up to the mob, whether they believe what they say or not.

I very well could be wrong.  But it seems to me that this is mostly a big city problem.  I don’t think much is happening in smaller cities.

 

 I think it’s possible that the great big cities have become too large to be managed safely and effectively.  Rather than the death of a nation, we may be seeing the death of huge cities.  100 years ago, people moved from rural areas to large urban areas.  The pendulum may begin  swinging in the other direction now.

Welcome to the 21st century.  It's been going downhill for 20 years and will likely get worse.

You're being generous.  It's been going downhill since Wilson.

Could be.  You're older than I am.

Hey, you're back.  It just dawned on me that you were gone for quite  spell.

 

Glad to see you again.
