Year-End Debunkery

Let’s clean out the old pipeline so we can start the year with fresh idiocy to debunk! These will be quick takes because there’s a pot of chili on the stove and I’m feeling every bit of it.

You wouldn’t risk “Facebook Jail” if you weren’t posting verifiable bullshit. Post things that are true and not harmful and destructive and you’ll be unfettered by Facebook’s shackles. Do better.

This looks like a Christmas wish list from the Koch Brothers. Wipes out most of the areas for taxations on businesses, while leaving taxes as is for the rest of the country. How very Scroogean.

Just remember no taxes means no roads, schools, libraries, fire departments, police departments, national defense, immigration agencies, food inspectors, occupational safety enforcement or a wealth of other community essentials. Your guns won’t get you any of these things.

While this looks to most like a benign kind of “don’t worry be happy” message, I see it as similar to the previous meme in that it is a total benefit to the 1%. “Little Things” for the Little People. It’s an attempt by the rich to keep you happy with your meager possessions and surroundings and get you to stop jockeying for a livable wage or affordable insurance. Don’t buy into it.

This is a headline clip from my Yahoo home page and it’s the best news I’ve heard this month! Now we can easily identify the idiots who won’t get vaxxed. We can see them coming and then stay out of their orbit. Get this information to a MAGA rally ASAP! The red hats can come off but the blue will remain. Plus, we can aggravate them further by saying, “and I thought I was a dyed-blue Democrat…”

Meme Dump

Here are some of the memes I’ve meant to run but either never had the opportunity or forgot about when the subject came up. 

I think this last one is one of the more powerful editorial cartoons from this year.

I hope you’ve had a joyous holiday season and look forward to a better 2022. I, for one, will be thrilled to put 2021 in my rearview mirror. Thank you for stopping by this year and thank you to those who have posted links to this site. Your time and attention are greatly appreciated, as well as indispensable.

See you in 2022.

Some of these are darn right sad.
I was unaware of the idiot author Candace Owen. What has she written? I heard of her only when she was touting the thing to turn her and the trump followers blue. I honestly can't wait until I see those numbskull's blue faces. A friend I so wanted to write about but she reads my blog. Her sisters husband has a brother who, while a brilliant musician didn't believe the covid "hype" He died 2 weeks ago. He took ivermectin. It shut down his kidneys and that is what killed him. Covid started it and he was sick for two weeks and wouldn't go to the doctor. We all believe, if he had gotten his ass to the dr's or hospital he may be alive today. His wife was the same. He fell over on week 2 or 3 and she called 911. He was put on a ventilator and when they tried to hook him up to dialysis to help his kidneys his oxygen would go so low they couldn't put him on dialysis. How damn sad. He took a drug that he had no business taking because it's for friggin' animals not humans and yet he was afraid of the vaccine. How is that even logical? Wife still on ventilator last I knew. So his kids will lose both parents. While I know this is thinning the herd it still pisses me off. The grief of my friend and her husband mourning their brother and for a year now they have been begging him to be vaccinated. So now he is dead at 59 yrs old. Is stupidity in our water supply of late?

No, it's Fox "News" and their brethren on cable. They take the vax themselves, but convince their viewers it's a hoax. Just for team politics.

Exactly! If they didn't stay healthy, who's gonna tell everyone why whatever the Democrats are doing is wrong?
