5 Questions: Current Events
Al Sharpton, Face Masks & More
July 5, 2020
This world is full of questions and as any regular reader knows, I love to answer them. A good friend and loyal reader decided to send me five in a recent e-mail. I think Cheese knows how I’ll answer most of these, but maybe we’ll both be surprised. Let’s find out. Let’s do this…
Thoughts on the Rev. Al Sharpton?
To start, Al Sharpton may have the title of “Reverend” before his name, but he’s no more a man of God than a piece of eggplant from the grocery store. If he does represent a god, it’s the one that was cast out and is responsible for all the evil and bad in this world. Yes, Al Sharpton is Satan’s bitch. He’s a professional race-baiter and hate-monger who only cares about one thing and that’s Al Sharpton. Well, that and getting paid so two things. He exists only to spread contempt and distrust between people of different races and to keep the victim mentality alive for the black race so he can capitalize on and cash in. And he’s a bad speaker, a bad liar, and used to dress like an idiot in sweatsuits and gold chains. And he’s a disgrace to not only the black race but to humanity as a whole. Did I mention he’s racist? Well, now I did. Just a total pinhead and walking cheese-whiz!
Should people who tore down statues and monuments be charged with federal crimes?
They should be charged, convicted, sentenced to actual jail time with felonies on their records, thus negating their rights to own a gun, vote, live in public housing, etc, and forced to do community service of at least 250 hours. Most of those statues have been in place for a hundred or more years and the mindless idiots that are trying to destroy our history were never offended by them (or probably never even noticed them) until they were told that they were supposed to be offended by them and then they went nuts, destroying both private and government-owned property. Now they should be forced to deal with the consequences of their actions.
Should face masks be mandatory?
This is one that I’m kind of torn on. Our Governor issued an Executive Order and for now, here in NC, it’s mandatory to wear face masks in public. Since I work in a government-controlled business, I’m wearing a face mask while at work and we are requiring that all customers wear face masks while in our place of business. A lot of people don’t like it and hell, I don’t like it, but it’s something that we’re being required to do. But I question both the timing and effectiveness of the face masks. For every medical official that says they help prevent the spread of Covid-19, there are two more that say they don’t. And why our esteemed Governor waited three months into a pandemic to issue this order instead of doing it right at the start if the masks are so effective doesn’t make much sense either. Requiring masks now is like requiring condoms at the baby shower. Of course, there is a lot of things this governor has done that make me question his competence. But that’s for another day. We’re talking about the masks. They should be voluntary, not mandatory. And our Governor is an idiot. And I like cheese. So there you go.
Should mail-in voting be used in the November elections?
In a perfect world where people were honest, sensible, and not totally deranged out of their minds, it could be a possibility down the road, but in today’s toxic environment where laws don’t matter and so much is at stake in November, it’s not a good time to try anything new. So stick with the tried and true method of using absentee ballots if necessary or going to vote in person. If it’s safe to hold protest marches, gather up at Wal-Mart, and tear down statues, I’m sure that it’s safe to go to the voting place in your district and vote. Just wear your mask and you’ll be okay.
Who do you think that Joe Biden will choose for his running mate for the 2020 Presidential election?
Well, we know that it’s going to be a woman so that rules out Michelle Obama, right? But that does mean that Cory Booker might still be in the running? But to be serious, something that’s hard to do when talking about Biden making decisions and being the best Democrats has to offer, I think it will be whoever the powers-that-be that run the Democratic party tell him to pick. So George Soros will be the one who makes the call and Biden will do just like Nancy, Maxine, Schumer, Barack, and The Clintons and go “Yes sir! Great choice sir!”. I think that realistically, it will come down to Elizabeth Warren, Kamala “Heels Up” Harris, or a third “surprise pick”. Warren has too much baggage, although claiming to be a Native American might help her case. Kamala is just a lying bitch, that being a good thing in the Democratic party, but wouldn’t float well in the mainstream election. She’s as likable as a case of crabs, which considering she started her political career, is probably something she’s very familiar with. So I’ll go for the third surprise candidate. Joe will pick… Hillary Clinton as his running mate. The left will love it, the anti-Trumpers will go crazy that she’s getting “another chance since she was ripped off in 2016” and if she decides she wants it, who in the Democratic party will tell her no? They don’t want to have fifteen bullet holes in their back, be 3/4 decapitated, and then have their totally surprising death ruled a suicide. So Hillary runs as the Vice Presidential candidate and if by some curse from hell that they win, Joe resigns due to medical issues and Hillary becomes President. She finally makes it. And then we’re all fucked! Watch and see.
