Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Knows Where Common Sense Went

Nobody KnowsSnopes

Common sense this week, is being flushed down the toilet bowl along with San Francisco’s ageing sewer pipes, and the answers to what seems obvious to those of us over the age of 20, are becoming as nebulous as one of our “President’s” speeches.

So, let’s start with a fun one shall we? I have a reader, who thankfully catches me on all my mistakes, especially when it comes to what I get in my email. Mostly, I am just amused by my emails, and if I like the content, I post it….and share it…and sometimes they might be ‘urban’ legends, and sometimes they are true, more often than not, they are not, but there you go.

Nevertheless, to spend hours trying to figure out the truth to an email, is not I have time for, because sometimes I don’t even have time to find out what DAY it is….(not important in the speck of universal knowledge to my mind.)  so SNOPES was suggested…and the reason I don’t always trust SNOPES is because, I have read, that George Soros funds the site under Media Matters..and just to show that SNOPES has a bias and I am NOT making this up– some parents are concerned about that too: The Girl Scouts are being told to check facts on SNOPES, which has big liberal bias: And the Girls Scouts are being told to consult it for all information:

The book referred young readers to Media Matters for America as one of the primary sources for debunking lies and deceit, as the organization is known for its overtly partisan — and progressive — stances. The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true, and then spread quickly. Next time you receive a txt or a forwarded e-mail about something terrible that happened to someone, try to confirm it. The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings.Girl scouts

So, I’m not sure how bias they are, because, some of the stuff they report truly is right..but, until someone sends me a website that is NOT bias—we all have to refer to our own common sense.

As the Trump says in his book, “The Art of the Deal:” Trust you gut.

 


And speaking of Commons Sense:

Greece is on the verge of collapse, and according to the experts, it’s only a matter of time before this happens to us.us dept

 

And then, almost in the same breath, it was all over the news: Uh…by the way, Puerto Rico is going to default soon also, but while Greece won’t do much to us, Puerto Rico WILL affect the United States…because it is about 76 billion in debt, where as Detroit was only 8 billion, and WHY the United States is responsible I have no clue because, somebody explain to me how can Puerto Rico be part of the United States but not a state? And also, did politicians just claim it was part of us because most of the young people from Puerto Rico live in New York, and that just leaves old people who WE will have to support in Puerto Rico, and the big companies just wanted the cheap labor…so they just said that Puerto Rico is part of the U.S., and how does this work again?American and Rico

Nobody Knows. Where’s Geraldo to confuse us when you need him?

 


And speaking of confusing: Obama wants to spend more money. He just said that everyone should be paid overtime in the United States. He gave everyone a raise, and it was reported that small businesses are going to have a hard time doing this, and can someone tell me when did it become law that the President of the United States can tell businesses what to do and how much they have to pay their employees?

I’m confused. Isn’t that fascism? This is a serious sewer pipe overload of hogwash or what?  obama infrastruture

Not only that, how long has Obama been saying he was going to FIX the infrastructure? Isn’t that  what his big stimulus was all about? Shovel ready jobs? And he is STILL talking and making promises about it? What? Do Politicians sit around and go, “You can promise ANYTHING and repeat it ever year! The average citizen has a memory of about one month at the most. Most of the time, they don’t even remember what you say this week to week.”

What do they think we are…gerbils? (Answer: yes.)gerbils two

And speaking of gerbils,

Here’s  a gerbil statement if I ever read one:

“The United States may not be facing full-scale financial insolvency at the levels Greece is experiencing, but with the Social Security Disability program facing bankruptcy within a year and the Highway Trust Fund expected to be insolvent by the end of the summer, it’s obvious we have to be wiser with the federal pocketbook if we want to have any hope of getting the budget under control.”

“Hope?” They stop counting the debt clock about two years ago. They have NO idea where half the money that is spent even goes. They have been known to misplace trillions, and that’s in EVERY department of the government.

Nobody keeps track of it.

Yes.  Common sense tells most of us that there IS no common sense in Washington D.C.

Common sense tells us, we should just dig a deep ditch around the Capitol, and let it float out to sea.  Maybe it would bump into Puerto Rico and finally merge.

  1. Even when my father and my uncles forward articles in email I check them for urban legend and such. Snopes is biased, but they are kind of the Whole Earth catalog of legends.
