    Wow! Me dino saw almost all of the Star Wars movies and it never occurred to me that the Sith Lord Emperor was a career politician.
    OMG! New thought. The Sith was that faraway galaxy's Deep State.
    As for Blank Looks Matter, that's how Buydumb will look on the witness stand when he says, "When, uh, yes, Hunter--oh, he's the one who's my son--wrote some malarkey about some "Big Guy" in his lap pop, uh, his lap cop--you know, the lap thing--I don't know who he was--was--what am I doing here?"
    Such characteristic even when blathered perjury would be nothing compared to the whopper the Puppet-In-Chief told when coming into office he raised his right hand and swore to protect the Constitution.

      If you want to really get into Star Wars lore, there is a real dubious story behind the Sith vs Jedi conflict that isn't nearly as "dark and light" as it is often portrayed. In the lore, the world of the Sith was closed to outsiders for trade, etc., despite having plentiful natural resources and an advanced civilization. They just wanted to be left alone as they used the Force to study the universe. An initial attempt to militarily conquer the planet was a disaster because of the Sith Lords (note the plural there) and their powers.

      Enter the Jedi. With their similar controls over the Force and the armada of warships behind them seeking to plunder the rich Sith homeworld, they struck and obliterated the entire race from existence. Those which study the "dark side" of the Force gravitate to the methods of understanding the Force originally employed by the Sith race even though they have been completely obliterated. There are serious moral questions, however, as to whether or not these "new" Sith Lords accurately reflect the learning of the ancient Sith or are simply Jedi who abandon the constraints of the Jedi order and seek the additional power once harnessed by the Sith.

      George Lucas in my opinion was a visionary not only into Sci-Fi, but political science. No offense to Gene Roddenberry, but the universe of Star Wars is far more probable (IMHO) than the universe of Star Trek because of the political realities present in the Star Wars universe as compared to the idealism in the Prime Directive and Federation. But if you really want to get down to realism, I'd suggest that Firefly may take the cake...

        Loved the Firefly TV shows and the Serenity movie that followed,
        Have two DVDs that contains all of it.
        Have DVDs of most of Star Wars and I'm not getting any more.
        Any DVDs of Star Trek being my favorite TV show during the Sixties? Nada for zero.
        Loved the Borg episodes that came later, though.

          I really liked the original episodes with Kirk, McCoy, and Spock. They were supposed to embody the emotional (McCoy) and the purely logical (Spock) aspects of mankind along with their upsides and downsides in decision-making.

      I wonder if it was Jar Jar Binks that was most qualified to slow the spread of intelligence. mimicking headboard harris . . .

        Jar Jar Binks reminded me of a Warner Brothers fall guy cartoon character like Elmer Fudd,
        Instead of saying "What's up, Doc," to Jar Jar, Bugs Bunny would say, "What's up, dork" while handing him a stick of dynamite with a burning fuse.
        As Bugs zips down his rabbit hole, Jar Jar would just stare at his smoking gift untit~~BOOM!
        As for Word Salad Kackling Kamala, the slowing spread of intelligence had long creaked to a dead stop when BuyDumb got the beyond pathetic notion to appoint Kamala the grandiose CZAR of an artificial anything.
        You see, Kackles personifies the epitome of all things artificial. And most especially intelligence!

      Thanks . . . When I posted that one I was thinking all of us that have posted memes that awaken, make us laugh (undoing the frustration and anger these days cause us) or make us think introspectively.

    Excellent batch!!!!!

    What I truly fear is that all of these nefarious activities leading up to WWIII are part of a plan to declare martial law in the US and to “postpone” elections. We may have seen the last real election in America.

    What a great way to start my day!!! OUC memes!!! Smiles, holy smokes, no Schiffs, wit and wisdom all in one place! Thanks, OUC!! #7 nails the truth, but #1 would be the reaction if he saw your meme collection. I do hope Trump has another whack at it. It would be nice if Sanity was actually on the ballot. Ok, I have to ask, "What did God say to you, OUC?"

    Gandalf as God, Palpatine as a true career politician, this Administration's Cabinet should live in a bassinet, did the Bee write that fantastic speech on slowing intelligence? What a great group!

      You see the Deepness of these memes, and the interplay of the combination, much more than their "upon first glance" value, Thank you, that makes my efforts worth while.

      PS, no, the Bee did not write the "Slowing of Intelligence" ditty. I don't know if it's true but her fight against the spread of intelligence shows us so well that even a blind man could see. I am sure that there is some truth to it and I have no doubt that briben could actually screw that whole thing up in the way it came out. The intent in affect could also have been on purpose; we are not talking about bright people here.
      Perhaps we might learn more about that . . .BUT! . . . it sure was funny and from our observations, ring true in whole pure tones.

      PPs, a bassinet is waaaaaay toooooo comfy for them, save the bassinet for the innocent babes in the night.
