Ignorance Easier than Understanding (RR)

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ your stop for what you need to know to make it through another day. Did I read that right? What happened to the ‘hear it here’? Oh, sorry, we’ll just edit it out. Okay, we’re back on our corner, across the street from the train depot, under the awning about to bother people on their way to the big city. Excuse me, Miss, Roving for ‘Pulse,’ the ever-popular information show.”

“Yes, we know who you are; you’ve been on this corner forever.”

“It sure seems that way. So, what’s your name and what’s bugging you the most these days?

“I’m Mandy; how do you do? And my main bug is how many of our fellow citizens support all this crazy stuff that doesn’t make any sense.”

“Like what?”

“Like Socialism. I mean, what do they want to do, eat their dog? You explain that Socialism has never worked — and will never work — and they look at you as if you’re the one who’s crazy. And then they call Trump a racist and you ask them to give one example, just one, of Trump being a racist and they look at you as if you lost your mind.”

“Good point: they never offer facts, just opinions. They accuse Trump of colluding with the Russians but offer no proof; they accuse him of everything under the sun but never show a scintilla of evidence. It gets boring, doesn’t it?”

“Oh, I agree, Roving. Look, if they don’t have any proof then they ought to keep their mouths shut.”

“Good luck with that one. Imagine The View sitting around the table for an hour and no one says a word?”

“Never happen; they’ve invested too much effort to be anti-Trump, whatever the cost. Look, this is my train. Nice to have talked with you.”

“See you around, Mandy. What do you say we take a break?”

It’s Up to You” (2:56)

“And we’re back with Justin who is a lawyer for one of the big banks downtown. So, Justin, what’s bugging you these days?”

“Besides judges who never read the Constitution? I guess giving out drivers’ licenses to illegals as if they’re beads thrown from a float during Mardi Gras. I’m telling you right now, Roving, on live TV, that the election this November will be the most corrupt election in the history of our country. We’ll have all kinds voting: illegal immigrants, felons, dead people, besides all those voting multiple times. I’m telling you, it’ll be one sad day, the day when our country dies, unless we have voter ID, at least that’s what I think.”

“Do you have any judges in mind about not understanding the Constitution?”

“Two pop out: that low-life Army Judge, Denise R. Lind; you know, the one who wouldn’t let LTC Terry Lakin present a defense because it might ‘embarrass the president,’ and Amy Berman Jackson, the Obot judge in Roger Stone’s case who doesn’t give a hoot about tainted jurors. Excuse me but this is my train.”

“And off he goes. Okay, we’ll do one more commercial and then one more interview.”

Barcarolle” (2:08)

“Excuse me, Roving for ‘Pulse.’”

“Oh, I know who you are.”

“Then who am I?”

“You’re the one that says Obama deserves to spend, how do you say it, ‘the rest of his worthless life in a cage down in GITMO?’”

“Yes, that’s me.”

“Obama was the best president we ever had.”

“How much money do you think the Obamas squirreled away in offshore accounts? A million? A billion?”

“It doesn’t matter. He left Trump with the best economy in decades.”

“He left Trump with a disaster. Let me take a guess: you think Trump is a racist, right?”

“Everybody knows Trump is a racist and a fascist.”

“Give me one example; give me one instance that states your case; give us some proof, if you can, but you can’t, can you? Bet you twenty bucks you don’t even know what a fascist is.”

“Maybe not, but everyone knows Trump is a racist. I don’t have to waste my precious time offering proof, so there.”

“You lost your calling; you should have been on the debate team.”

“How do you know I wasn’t?”

“Because you haven’t made the effort to determine whether or not you’re being lied to, that’s why. Your brain is operating as if it never developed past the age of three, that’s why. Run along now and maybe go to the library and actually read a book, starting with The Wealth of Nations.’”

“Does it have pictures?”

“You mean like in a comic book?”



“Too bad; I guess I won’t be reading it.”

“Sorry, kid: the odds were against you since you made the decision to go through life as a loser rather than something to be proud of. And I don’t even have to ask you if you ever served in the military, because I know you haven’t and never will. You don’t have it, kid, and you’ll never have a day when you’ll think for yourself: all your life you will live without ever once having an original thought. Good luck with that. Goodbye and with that, on behalf of the crew, I’ll say goodnight to our viewers and readers alike: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”
