“Books are like seeds. They can lie dormant for centuries and then flower in the most unpromising soil.” (Carl Sagan); “Nothing ever dies on the Internet.” (anon.); “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” (Madison Ave. [m]adman). My posts amalgamate these three philosophical elements into one novel experience; they champion critical thinking, human dignity / equality, levelheaded / even-handed / liberty-based governance and solid environmental stewardship. C’mon in!

In matters of human anatomy, generalizing about size can be fraught with conundrums. After all… as any open-minded person would concur… it is far, Far, FAR too easy to jump to conclusions… especially when it comes down to the one, particular, peculiar, political organism in question.
Scientific study oft is the best way to corroborate or debunk theoretical postulates… but these days… especially since America’s most recent Inauguration Day… charges against science have been hastily and summarily trumped up.
Indeed, it would appear that the new executive (dis)order would DICTATE that we must all mindlessly fall in line with him to agree, “Science is bad” — NOTE: no punctuation here… please read onward for further explanation and instructions.
I leave this up to you… your three choices are…
“.” – “!” – “?”
If the majority of folks fail to insert the question mark, that’d mean too many of them are mindlessly marching in lockstep with the anti-science movement. And under those strict, undereducated, 6,000-year-old flat Earth at the center of the universe conditions, it’d be high time to hang up my white lab coat and leave my following theory hanging and dangling… i.e., untested / unchallenged.
That’d mean that wild(?) speculation would force us to conclude that re that particular, peculiar political entity…
Small handedness is directly proportional to a small mind.
That’s my two cents’ worth… two pennies for your thoughts?
Just for the record, I don’t find Bill O’Reilly’s claims of innocence to be credible. The ugly display of extreme rightwing political punditry typically goes hand in hand with the grotesque exhibition of sexually abusive / predatory behavior.
Nonetheless, O’Reilly claims he hadn’t sexually harassed women / created a hostile work environment at his now former network, FOX. My best guess is his oinking had become so loud and habitual he had become oblivious to his own, obvious oinking noises.
O’Reilly’s sincere apology to womankind is long overdue. He must also put his big money where his big mouth is. He should contribute all $25 MILLION of his lavish FOX severance package to NOW… The National Organization for Women… as in NOW!
After that? It’d be advisable for sexist pig O’Reilly to seek the help of a shrink to help cure him of his misogyny.
That’s my two cents’ worth… two pennies for your thoughts on this O’Reilly matter?
If all goes off as scheduled, we’ll know, tomorrow, just who #45’s U.S. Supreme Extreme Court nominee will be… the entity who’ll replace the late Antonin Scalia. Zero doubt, this judicial hack will be a Dark Ages, archconservative who’ll get rubber-stamped and wind up serving a lifetime term. And once he has donned his robe, his decisions will drive America backward and downward… will warp and lay waste to civilized society till death do us part… or the end of the world… whichever comes first.
So who might this appointee be? This is pure speculation… but… would it shock anyone if it were one of these creeps?
Occam tells us that the simplest explanation is usually the truth.
If so, that’d mean that whenever “Tweety” is Twittering, he’s actually frittering away his precious time excessively obsessing over inconsequential crap.
But… what if these Tweets are a smokescreen… being posted by one of his surrogates… a devious stratagem expressly designed to distract the press corps from their real duties… being investigative journalists?
If so, that’d mean, within that oval shaped, corporate boardroom, some really dark, creepy, unethical and illegal crap could easily unfold unabated… and, worse yet, go totally unnoticed.
DISCLAIMER: With 7+ billion souls inhabiting our world I’d never claim to be the first person to have ever opined, proclaimed, penned, published and/or posted words along these lines.
Nevertheless, that’s My 2 cents’ Worth. Now… my Qs for you…
Do you agree? Disagree? Like? Dislike? In other words…
A Penny For Your Thoughts?
Uh… seeing how I’ve just expressed “My 2 Cents’ Worth”… in the spirit of treating readers, followers and commenters as equals, I’ve opted to update that Q thusly…
