(JOHN): I put my name up here because if anybody actually reads this post, I want them to be sure that they know, beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt, who it is that writes such superiorly interesting stuff as is about to follow in this overly-mundane and easily ignorable product of eccentric genius.
My friend over at “Beetley Pete” wrote a really engaging post recently asking the question about whether or not the art of blogging has reached its peak. I, myself, have often wondered if the heyday of blogging has passed and if it is even relevant anymore. Of course, since I am still blogging, some people might consider that to be a hypocritical question. But that would be alright with me because I am sometimes hypocritical about a lot of things … sometimes accidentally and sometimes on purpose. When I am hypocritical on purpose it is always almost entirely because I love to stir up controversy and confrontation because it gives me a thrill to irritate some people …Republicans especially!
I don’t know for sure if blogging is dead or dying but I would doubt it because there are already 600 million of the damned things on the Internet right now … even as I write this … and more are being born with each passing day …. so that must say something about it, wouldn’t you think? I do know that is getting harder and harder to get people to comment on things that are written on blogs ….things that sometimes take hours to formulate and to type and to publish. I know it must be discouraging for somebody to spend a couple of hours writing something they believe is important and that might have a wide appeal to readers and then to have only one or two people come onto the blog and leave some cryptic kind of acknowledging comment such as “Interesting.”
But maybe I should not complain at all because there are, indeed, millions of blogs and maybe some amateur blogger should feel tingles in his or her groin area if one person out of millions does take the time to even notice their blog. I know I have physical and mental sensations of intense pleasure and satisfaction when anyone at all acknowledges my writing…. I have never ejaculated over the experience yet however … that would be a bridge too far as far as I am concerned …I am not that visceral yet. LOL.
I could not help but notice, this morning, as I was listening to the news on the radio, that Vladismear Poontang is sending soldiers door to door in some of the Ukrainian territories forcing citizens to vote for the reunification of their homelands with Mother Russia. I mean those hunky unwashed Ruskie soldiers are carrying guns and I hear that they love to use them …so I am thinking to myself that whoever gets a visit from the soldiers and the person collecting the votes to rejoin Russia are going to be most willing to put their mark on the “Yes” block of whatever kind of ballot they are going to use.
Another thought occurred to me in regard to this new Russian voting scheme too…. I wonder if it would be possible for people who do not wish to vote for their homeland to rejoin Russia to bribe the soldiers — you know — offer them sex or something. They are something like animals after all, aren’t they and since they are far away from home in a hostile situation, wouldn’t it be common sense to offer them a roll in the hay to entice them to allow a voter to slide on the issue at hand?
As I watch this attempt to coerce Ukrainians to vote to rejoin their homeland with Mother Russia by force of arms, the thought came to me that if the American Q-Anon-Loving MAGA crazies get control of The United States government — something that is a real possibility in these divided days — the new regime in Washington might try the exact same kind of tactics with American voters in upcoming elections …. provided that there will be any such things as elections after the radical right takes over …I am thinking that a new Trump-Like government might dispense with the inconvenience of elections altogether. We will have to wait and see how that one works out, won’t we?
I meant to say that if the former president can declassify documents with his mind alone, then maybe he can win the 2024 elections without the need for voting and all the stuff that goes along with it. Maybe he can just focus the powers of his mind and go straight to the Oval Office without any Input from The American People at all. Or maybe he can just ascend back into Heaven and run the whole government from up there.
It is really possible, as I have heard, that people are being healed of all kinds of illnesses now just by praying to the former Guy?
I am going to try that one out for myself …. I am going to pray and ask for another million dollars. If it works, I will let you know. If it doesn’t work then I will cringe in the dark corners of my mansion in shame and will never mention it again.
