“You can ignore reality. However, you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” – Ayn Rand.
My smart phone magically delivered the appropriate word of the day. Year. Century. Lifetime.
“Bunkum” – Insincere speech by a politician.
What a wonderful euphemism. As opposed to bullshit, lies, deceit, and thievery.
When I was a mere lad I recall leaning left. As I grew older I moved towards the center and the right.
I passionately believed in the integrity and correctness of selected “quote” leaders, politicians etc.
What a fool I was. What fools we all are.
Washington runneth over with “Bunkum” on the left, center, and right.
All of them are masters of the “Bunkum slam”.
Term limits for all may be our only salvation.
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
And I promise to never again breach the subject.
“Some of these folks didn’t evolve from apes; it was the other way around.” – From Double Whammy by Carl Hiaasen
Yes sir! I would submit I see worse bankum on the left, but mostly bankum. Good post.
