I know, Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck, Gingrich, Drudge, Breitbart, etc., are actually from far off hostile planets and have popped in to conquer. I feel sure of this. They're after our bleach blonde, dull brained bimbos, monster trucks, reality TV shows and shit beer. Naturally!
I've got it! The aliens want everyone to vote against what's best for themselves and their families because their cable went out. I think they're hard up for entertainment and ya know what makes a good time even more mega primo – what’s better than watching the rich fight amongst themselves? Watching the slow-on-the-uptake proles savaging each other over scraps off the plates of the gilded set. Oh yeah, this has gotta be right up there with Real Housewives and that stupid You're Fired show.
Dallas or The Beverly Hillbillies instead. It'd be less destructive, healthier even, than reality TV.
All these pasty white, arrogant, appallingly base, spineless actor manqués, mentioned above, are nothing more than third raters capitalizing on the public's general insecurity and unresolved mommy/daddy issues. These asswipes line their pockets by fanning the flames of hate so's no one notices they're blockheaded, ugly, untalented frauds. Yeah, the Orange Menace is right at home in this club. Keeping us downtrodden types warring amongst ourselves is key – keeps us from noticing the hand in our pocket.
OR, yes, they’re feakazoid, scary aliens from Kepler-1647b, their Tatooine-like Hellhole home. They’ve been beaming in Fox news (//snort// news. Yeah. right) in order to soften up, brainwash the masses so they can zoom in, enslave and Soylent Green-ize us all.
THESE are the people (aliens?) who will be leaving us a smoking ruin as they spark up their celebratory Cohiba Behikes. They don’t care if we’re subsisting on nothing but sticky rice and Velveeta, they don’t care if we’re living on the streets, they don’t care if we die. Well. not as long as they’ve got folks tending their lawns, cleaning their houses and making their morning Frozen Caramel Macchiato.
Is there a way to reach our brethren in hoi polloi-dom, the brainwashed? Reason, truth and basic decency seem to bounce off their thick what-about-ME hides. What will break through? Magic pills? Ray-guns? Trapezoidal crystals? Anything? I want to know!
Meantime, teach your children well so they grow up to be thinking, reasoning, fact loving adults. Ones who won't be taken in by liars, hucksters and thieves like our president elect and his crew of reality deniers and constitution defilers.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
In life, it is never the big battle, the big moment, the big speech, the big election. That does not change things. What changes things is every day, getting up and rendering small acts of service and love beyond that what's expected of you or required of you.

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.
