I was going to title this post ‘Thanks Utah!’ but I decided to broaden it out a bit because it’s not just Pierre Delecto I have an issue with. It’s pretty much every manipulative power structure we’ve been told we need to listen to, respect, and inevitably obey. If you don’t comply, if you don’t do as they say, well, you just like to see people suffer needlessly.
Over the last few months, we have seen the redefining of words, words once noble and of import, having become sullied and grimy either due to individuals they were associated with, or the demonstrable untruths they attempted to convey.
Thankfully, lies have a way of catching up to you, and if you tell too many too often, eventually the house of cards will just implode. As Abraham Lincoln once said, you can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.
1. Honorable – Bringing or worthy of honor.
This is a word that has been attached to Mitt Romney, also known as Pierre Delecto, more times than I can count. Because of its attachment to a man who cut his teeth on being a vulture capitalist, it has become sullied. I know it’s venture capitalist, but what he did was more akin to what a vulture does. Perhaps even more cruel, because he didn’t wait for the entity to expire before he began picking at the flesh. He started gorging himself on the organs and meaty bits long before the time of death could be announced. Under the guise of helping struggling businesses, this ‘honorable’ man would dismantle them pick them clean, and leave the bones to be bleached by the sun.
Since money without power means little to small, egomaniacal folks such as Pierre, he decided that politics was the way to bolster his lagging self-esteem by pretending to be a public servant. He realized it was the greatest grift in existence, far better than destroying businesses and lives, so he jumped in headfirst.
Just because he changed careers does not mean Mitt Delecto stopped being an opportunist. It’s his nature, and he will do anything if it means increasing his profile, power, and influence.
2. Expert – A person who has an authoritative and comprehensive knowledge of or skill in a particular area.
If you took 100 chimpanzees and let them fling poo at a blackboard, you’d likely get a better success rate than the experts. This is across the board, from the economy, to jobs, to the virus, to the steps necessary to mitigate said virus. We crippled the greatest economy in the world, caused panic to the point of people calling the cops on their neighbors for letting their kids play outside, all because the experts were infallible, and their words were akin to gospel.
Now the selfsame experts who shamed you into putting on a muzzle and living in your basement are insisting that as long as you’re out protesting, and not fishing, or taking your kids to the park, it’s all good. Everything they’ve said is demonstrably false! The next time someone tells me to trust the experts, I might just be the one flinging poo.
3. Science – The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
If the first commandment was to trust the experts, the second was to trust the science. As soon as science agrees that biology is binary, we can have a conversation. As long as they pander to and shill for mental disorders, allow me my skepticism as to anything science says regarding anything else.
The latest brain fart from science is that asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is very rare. This from the same folks who insisted that actual farts were akin to mustard gas, making all within a one-mile radius instantly terminal.
4. Justice – Just behavior or treatment.
Justice today is no longer about just behavior or treatment. It’s no longer about taking the individual who committed an infraction, charging them, seeing them go to trial, and getting convicted. Justice today is about taking what’s not yours, burning down what you didn’t take, killing anyone that stood in your way, and demanding that people bow before you and wash your feet for being a hooligan.
5. Prophetic – Accurately describing or predicting what will happen in the future.
Back to the poo-flinging chimpanzees we go. If you haven’t been keeping track, by now, we were supposed to have seen Donald Trump frog-marched out of the oval office for being a Russian spy, half the country dead from coronavirus, martial law, and a direct hit from a meteor. Even if you tried, you couldn’t get it wrong so often, but the ‘prophetic’ voices are still out in droves making predictions not based on any supernatural revelation, but rather a projection and fleshly perception.
I could go on, but I have to mow my lawn, and it’s supposed to rain. The point this morning, if there is one besides my having to rant a bit, is to be wise regarding not only what you believe but what you willfully disseminate to others. Many are come in His name, deceiving many. Take heed that no one deceives you!
