Wow! Who Knew There Were So Many Things That Don’t Matter?

By Steve K

Maybe it’s me. Maybe I’m just wound up too tight. Maybe I obsess over things that I think matter but really don’t. In a strange way I envy those who can wave a dismissing hand at the things happening around us and to us. Oh, to be able to go through life so care-free, so unaware. If ignorance is bliss, then willful ignorance is willful bliss.

“Willfully ignorant”; isn’t that another word for “dumb on purpose”? Either way, you have to admire anyone who can manufacture their own state of blissful ignorance. After all, reality is so often unpleasant to face. Dwell on it too long and it can be downright depressing, so the secret to happiness for some people is to ignore reality and pretend it doesn’t exist. That’s much easier than admitting you made a mistake or that your judgement is faulty.

I’m fascinated by how an entire constituency is made up of such people. There seems to be no other explanation for such a phenomenon, and there are people in government who are aware of this and know how to capitalize on it. In fact, their very existence actually depends on voters being willfully ignorant dumb on purpose.

Are there any examples of this? I’m glad you asked! Yes, there are so many examples that it’s truly mind-boggling. So much so that I would love to live out the rest of my days pretending that such people don’t exist, but I’m not able to be that detached from reality. Let’s look at a few examples of what so many Americans are in denial of:

  • “It doesn’t matter to me that gas prices more than doubled since Obama took office, or that he’s blocked oil production in the Gulf for U.S. companies resulting in thousands of laid-off workers while sending billions of our tax dollars to Brazil so they can drill in the Gulf, or that Obama said that under his plan energy prices “will necessarily skyrocket”.
  • “I don’t know or care that our elected representatives over-spent us into debt to the tune of more than $16 trillion dollars, or that every taxpayer’s share is $140,000. It’s time for my favorite program, ‘So you think you can dance with a 5th grade chef?'”
  • “It doesn’t worry me at all that our Senate Majority Leader wants deficit spending for Cowboy Poetry. Some things are just to vital to our national interest to slash them from the budget.”
  • “I’m not at all concerned that our president is skipping national security meetings and refusing to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister while the Middle East is running amok. He has more important things to do like attend a fundraiser with rappers for his reelection campaign, and appearing on David Letterman and The View. Who’s Benjamin Netanyahu? Is he someone important, like Letterman, or Whoopie, or Jay-Z?”
  • “So what if the president condemned Mitt Romney BEFORE he condemned the attacks on Americans in Libya and Egypt. He’s in Campaign Mode, so what did you expect?”
  • “Why should it matter to me that the Marines guarding our embassy in Egypt were not permitted to have ammunition in their rifles, or that the president pledged that billions in foreign aid will continue to flow to these countries in spite of these attacks? I’m more concerned with getting my next tattoo.”
  • “So what if rogue countries have absolutely no fear of our President?”
  • “I’m not the least bit concerned that billions of our tax dollars are going to failing auto companies so that they can produce cars that no one wants, or that they cost more to produce that what they cost to buy. I need you to subsidize my new hybrid for me. Thanks!”
  • “Don’t trouble me with details over the government takeover of the health-care industry. Who’s got time to read all 2,700 pages of the Affordable Care Act?
  • “Do I find it hypocritical that the man who promised us the ‘most transparent administration ever’ held health-care negotiations behind closed doors after making a campaign promise to televise it on C-SPAN? Not at all. Why would you even ask such a silly question?”
  • “I appreciate the former House Speaker for looking us squarely in the eye and telling us “We have to pass the bill so we can see what’s IN the bill”. You have to admire that kind of candor. Few people would have the stones to try to pull that off.”
  • “I was not aware that Obama has been golfing 104 times since 2009. I wonder what his handicap is? I bet he’s pretty good after all that practice.” Image
  • “Why should I care that the first family takes a lot of expensive vacations overseas with a huge entourage? It’s not like I’m paying for it all. Someone else pays for all that, right?”
  • “No, I don’t find the timing of the news of Osama bin Laden’s death coming within 24 hours of Obama releasing a copy of his birth certificate the least bit suspicious. And don’t all copies of birth certificates have PDF layers and other irregularities? Well, mine didn’t, but still….”
  • “I don’t care that Obama refuses to release his records to the public, like his academic, medical, travel, passport, social security, or selective service records. I only care about who makes it to the next round on American Idol”
  • “The Obama Administration refuses to release documents for the investigation into Fast & Furious? Isn’t that a movie? Why would anyone have documents on a movie? Wasn’t Vin Diesel in that? Maybe he’s at the center of the investigation. I’ll have to watch the movie again and see.”
  • “So what if a U.S. Border agent was killed, along with hundreds of Mexicans. It wasn’t anybody I know.”
  • “12 million squatters in this country illegally? No effective border security, or deportation plan? The Obama administration suing Arizona to prevent them from trying to get the situation under control? Obama giving amnesty to millions of illegals right before election time so they will register to vote? What’s your point in even bringing all this up? Why are you such a racist?”
  • “So what if Obama thinks there’s 57 states?”
  • “So what if he reads ‘corpsman’ and pronounces it ‘corpes-man’?”
  • “So what if he can’t figure out the complexities of negotiating a tricky gate while holding an umbrella? I trust this man with my health-care, my money, my freedom, and my personal safety. He’s the smartest man ever.”
  •   Image
  • “So what if he thinks Austrian is a language?”
  • “So what if he spent his formative years growing up in a third-world country that is predominantly Muslim?”
  • “It doesn’t interest me in the least that he wrote in Dreams From My Father ‘ To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors…’. or ‘it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names’.”
  • “Why should I be concerned that Obama was mentored by Frank Marshal Davis, an avowed communist?”
  • “Why do you make such a big deal about the people Obama has surrounded himself with, like Bill Ayers? Doesn’t everyone have that one friend who’s an unrepentant 60’s radical and domestic terrorist?”
  • “So what if he went to a church pastored by a crazy hate-filled racist preacher? I’m more interested in what crazy outfits Lady GaGa wears.”
  • “The President appointed a communications director who is an admirer of Chairman Mao? Who’s Chairman Mao?”
  • “The President appointed a Green Jobs czar who is a communist, who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by our own government? What’s a czar?”
  • “The President’s ‘Diversity Officer’ at the FCC is an admirer of Hugo Chavez, wants our government to take over all communications like they did in Venezuela, and said that whites who hold high positions should surrender those positions because of their skin color and sexual orientation and be replaced with minorities and gays which has nothing to do with qualifications? I don’t see anything wrong with that.”
  • “The President’s Regulatory czar wants to ‘reformulate’ our First Amendment, give animals the right to sue humans, wants government recognition of marriage to be discontinued? What’s a czar again?”
  • “The President’s Safe Schools czar is a homosexual and an advocate of pedophilia? I guess it’s o.k. as long as they use condoms. Speaking of which, I want free birth-control!”
  • “The President appointed a Supreme Court justice who said ‘I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion  than a white male’? I don’t see that as an issue. I trust her judgement. She is a wise Latina, after all.”
  • “The President’s nominee for U.S. Court of Appeals is an advocate of reparations for slavery? Does that mean that Obama would have to pay himself since he’s mixed race?”
  • “The President’s Science czar advocates forced sterilizations and forced abortions to save the planet? I just don’t see what that has to do with anything.”
  • “The President’s recess-appointed head of Medicare and Medicaid wants to ration health care? Why should that bother me?”
  • “Socialism has been a historically proven failure everywhere it’s been implemented? So what? When are we going to allow gay marriage?”
  • “I’m not seeing where the President’s  ‘You didn’t build that’ remark in any way means he disdains independent-minded entrepreneurs.”
  • “How is the fact that the President never held a job in the private sector of any relevance to whether he’s qualified to run the country? So what if he lacks experience? He sounds good when he’s reading a teleprompter.”

I’ll ask again – who knew there were so many things that don’t matter?

Netflix and a New Use for Popcorn Bags

By Steve K

So we got “Machete” from Netflix. The previews looked decent because it showed copious amounts of senseless violence, which I’m a huge fan of. Even the name “Machete” pretty well says that someone in the movie will feel the cold steel of a huge blade separating their head from their neck. How can you have a movie by that title and not have a decapitation or twelve? It’s implied. Plus Danny Trejo was hilarious in “Bubble Boy”, so I thought it would be somewhat entertaining to watch. What I got instead was two hours of leftist propaganda and an attempt to stir up racial strife.

Why did I sit through the whole movie? Morbid curiosity, like the kind that makes you take a second look when you drive past a car wreck. The movie starts out with our “hero”, a former Mexican Federali, hiding out in Texas after a drug lord murdered his family. Desperate for money, he agrees to assassinate a campaigning anti-illegal immigration politician (Robert De Niro, in what has to be his worst performance ever). But Machete is set up as a scapegoat, used as a pawn by his recruiter and is now on the run from the law for attempted assassination. As planned, De Niro’s poll numbers skyrocket after the botched attempt. So the rest of the movie is Machete using machetes and what not, killing a bunch of people and getting the universal support of the Hispanic population.

The movie portrays those Americans who want an orderly border as crazed racists, actually showing De Niro shooting and killing a helpless pregnant woman trying to cross the border. Don Johnson crawls out from under his rock to be in this film, portraying a leader of a Minuteman-type organization who supports De Niro’s candidacy. The whole premise is that corrupt, evil, racist white men are oppressing and victimizing the peace-loving, law-abiding, hard-working, patriotic, responsible illegal immigrants, who have clandestinely organized themselves and rally around a yet-to-be revealed leader known only as “She”, with her posters and graffiti visible here and there (sure, it’s just a crazy unintended coincidence if this reminds you in any way of Che’)

"She", "Che".....other than gender and one letter, what's the difference?

“She” by day is a mild-mannered owner/operator of a roach-coach, a meals-on-wheels vendor, but by night she’s She’, the Marxist revolutionary (excuse me, “revolucion”-ary), even hoarding a huge stockpile of military weapons, not just small-arms, but heavy crew-served weapons, rockets, mortars, and the like; something that every peace-loving, law-abiding illegal alien should have squirreled away, you know, just in case the authorities try to do some crazy thing like enforce the law.

The silliest part of the whole thing was watching Jessica Alba stand on the hood of a car before a crowd of Hispanics, pump her fist into the air and shout “We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us!”, to which the crowd enthusiastically agrees. (Funny how the previews didn’t show this kind of nonsense.) Excuse me while I regurgitate my popcorn. C’mon, Netflix, if airlines can provide barf-bags to their customers, then you can include one when you mail DVD’s that make folks want to spew their snack. Otherwise, when we microwave popcorn, we can put it in a serving bowl and save the empty bag so it’s available to hurl into should the movie turn our stomachs. This movie should come with a warning, but the motion picture rating system is inadequate and doesn’t provide a symbol for this. Currently we have:

  • G………….General Audiences – All ages admitted
  • PG……….Parental Guidance Suggested
  • PG-13…..Parents Strongly Cautioned – material inappropriate for children under 13
  • R………….Restricted – Under 17 requires accompanying adult
  • NC-17…..No one 17 or Under Admitted

We need to add more, 

  • SRLY?…..Seriously?
  • BAA……..Blatently anti-American
  • CCCP……Contains Soviet-Era propaganda and Liberal ideology
  • BADS……Bad acting, directing, and script
  • RW!………Attempts to provoke race-war
  • WOF…….Waste of film
  • WSE…….Watch something else
  • WTF…….WTF?
  • BBR……..Barf-bag required
  • K9X……..Wouldn’t make my dog sit through this
  • OOPS!….Scratch DVD thoroughly before returning
  • TURD……..Drag through cat’s litter box before returning

 Everyone, regardless of nationality, is subject to the legal requirements of entry into the U.S. Why do some people think that these requirements should be suspended at our southern border? Why should one particular people-group be exempt from following the law in which everyone else is required to follow? Let the makers of this film try to enter some other country illegally. I’d like to see a movie about that – accompanied by music from Benny Hill
