My one-week digital fast slapped me in the face with something important. For those who foolishly don't read this blog every day*, that was when I ditched Twitter, Facebook, surfing the web, political podcasts, most caffeine and alcohol, and other unimportant Internet information of any kind. I left the daily, nay, hourly close combat over Trumpian collusion and Stormy Daniels and all the rest for a week. When I came back, I discovered that I just don't care.
Trump didn't collude with Russia. He couldn't have for the simple reason that Russia didn't want him to win. They get 75% of their income from petroleum products and Trump's policies would lower the price. Besides, only total lunatics thought he could win in the first place. The whole "investigation" is just a bunch of high school popular kids from different cliques finding new ways to dis each other. How thrilling.
As a billionaire playboy, Trump probably slept with a dozen or more porn stars. That's what billionaire playboys do. They also pay them off to keep quiet when revealing the details would be inconvenient. Golly! He did that? And water is wet, too.
Meanwhile, the FBI and DOJ deliberately allowed Hillary to skate for her email felonies, any one of which would have put me behind bars for years. If you want me to be upset about non-collusion misdemeanors or a payoff to a bimbo, my response will be an Italian-American hand gesture.
So every once in a while, I tune back in and see the MSM running in circles, howling about one or more of these "scandals." What a complete waste of time. Meanwhile, we have these things going on for real.
|Peace on the Korean peninsula instead of a Japanese city being incinerated? HUGE.|
Bon voyage, kids.
* - I know I said this was going to be a Monday-Thursday blog, but my blogging OCD is turning out to be stronger than me. For those disappointed in my reversal, all I can say is what Captain Kirk said to the Klingon officer in Star Trek III, seen in this clip around 2:00.
