Skank Lives Matter!

Skank Lives Matter!

#SkankLivesMatter! Stop Skank Shaming! I don’t know; think of the skanks? Skanks have feelings too and we’re setting an unreasonably “high” bar on skankiness, which is hurting, disadvantaging, and effectively oppressing less than optimal skanks?

And, like so much that should be purely funny, this has its head-shaking, eye-rolling, face-palming side since it is so close to what is really said and presumably believed by so many whenever it comes to anyone “outperforming” anyone else and succeeding and being praised for that success by society.

The Other Fake News

The Other Fake News

Americans have become used to or, at least, understand and recognize the Fake News represented by the lamestream media’s endemic liberal bias and its overt and unabashed anti-American attacks upon our President. What we’re seemingly less cognizant of it the other form of Fake News – the creation of supposed “newsworthiness” of events that really have little to no interest or meaning.

Yep! Somewhere’s some bullshit is happening and the media is going to its best to make sure you both know and care about it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Kardashian’s panty line (Gasp!) or an animal common in the area running down a suburban street. 😉

Seems to me that most of them belong on Comedy Central, not a channel purported to be news.

The celebrities of both Hollywood and the NFL thought that their opinions mattered, that those opinions trumped their performance of their jobs in what are service industries. They spoke their narrative, which they proclaim as Truth, to Power and Power – real power, the power of the People and the People’s purse – responded.
