Dog and Pony Show

There is no difference between Tom Cotton and Chuck Schumer.

They are on the same team, and it’s not your team.

I don’t care what comes out of their mouth; they are not on your team.

I don’t care how pretty they talk; they are not on your team.

I don’t care if their media shills tell us how great they are; they are not on your team.

They are on the Harvard team. They are on the Ivy League team. They are on the elitist team.

They are both for foreign wars which makes their buddies a lot of money.

And they are both for an elitist oligarchy ruling over us in perpetuity.

The things that they fight over are minor issues such as transgender bathroom rights. On the big issues they are in total agreement. They use the social issues to divide us.

The social issues don’t even belong in the political realm. The social issues belong in the personal arena of battle.

Corporate America knows this and uses the social issues to divide us.

Neither of these Senators have done a damn thing for their respective constituents. What they have done is increase power for Corporate America.

They are on the same team, and it’s not your team.

As George Carlin said: It’s a big club and you ain’t in it.

Years ago there was this show on CNN called Crossfire. Pat Buchanan would be on the right and Tom Braden would be on the left. Michael Kinsley would substitute for Tom Braden. Michael Kinsley was a Harvard graduate.

He was also a flaming liberal. He probably still is.

I also used to watch Michael Kinsley on William F. Buckley‘s Firing Line.

William F. Buckley was a conservative.

It seemed to me that Michael Kinsley was being mentored by William F. Buckley.

At the time I said to myself: What is this nonsense?

It occurred to be then that politics was just a giant dog and pony show.

William F. Buckley was a Yale graduate, and as I’ve said Michael Kinsley was a Harvard graduate.

What’s the matter here? Couldn’t Kinsley find a liberal to hang out with? Couldn’t Buckley find a conservative to mentor?

Why are they hanging out? Don’t they believe in what they say?

Why would Buckley help out a younger Kinsley?

That really bothered me.

It bothers me today.

Did Chuck Bednarik hang out with Frank Gifford?

Did Jesus Christ hang out with Caesar?

I doubt it.

If you fundamentally believe that someone’s vision is wrong, why would you help them out?

Michael Reagan, the presidents son, must’ve noticed the same thing.

Many years ago he did a YouTube video in which he held his arms up like an A-frame.

He said in so many words: My right arm is the Democratic Party, my left arm is the Republican Party. They prop each other up.

That’s the way it is.

It’s a giant dog and pony show with them against you.

Do you remember Bill Clinton palling around with George Herbert Walker Bush many years ago?

I thought those guys were enemies.

Some enemies they were.

We were taken for a ride.

We’re chumps.

At the end of the day Tom Cotton and Chuck Schumer are going to be hanging out on Martha’s Vineyard drinking a Long Island.

What about you?

How does that Alpo taste?

Does it taste good?

Get used to it.

Sincerely,
