Humor is Where You Find It, by Robert Gore

Presumably—aye, there’s the rub. Last season, quarterback Colin Kaepernick expressed his disagreement with certain governmental policies and practices by kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner. Since then, other players have done the same, to the consternation of many fans, including President Trump. Ratings and attendance are tanking and the crony socialist owners are caught between the rock of their payrolls’ politics and the hard place of their fans’ disgust. To borrow from Oscar Wilde, one must have a heart of stone to ponder their plight without laughing. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer group of guys and gals.

    I find ironic humor in the fact that the NFL stopped Tim Tebow kneeling in prayer as "inflammatory and divisive," but are afraid to stop the insult to the anthem and flag, which is far more divisive, and hurts their bottom line. They've also stopped the use of special colored cleats in support of medical issues like breast cancer, or decals in favor of the slain Dallas police. It makes no sense to kill the messages that have a positive image, and support those with negative themes that cause an angry backlash among fans. One would almost think they take stupid pills every morning.

    I now find myself thinking of the always aimlessly silly antics of the orangutans I've seen several times at The Birmingham Zoo.
    Sorry if anyone thinks I'm insulting an innocent species.
    Orangutans have a clear and valid excuse for acting like orangutans.

    Horror disguised as humor. Quite an accomplishment. It is unfortunate that most who read this squib of sarcasm by Mr. Gore will not have the ability to understand it.Of course, rather than humor, some may see it as a rather fearsome invocation warning that all of those post apocalyptic books and movies may come true.

    Our government stopped representing us during teddy's and woodie wood wilson's tenures but the people didn't sign on until the leftest useful idiots doubled down and created useless idiots that have taken over their reign did it start dumbing down the masses of the unaware leaving a small percentage of those that couldn't help but 'Be" aware but in the minority against the rest of the world.

    You are correct, we Must return to our founding principles if we and perhaps the rest of the world are to survive as conscious human beings.

    Let us hope and dare I say, "Ask" for another enlightenment to awaken or re-awaken the best of humankind to stop the fall of reason and the profound appreciation of our existence in spite of all that has sought to confound us since our creation. (however you'd like to imagine that).
