Screwy Little Rats

Updated on February 14, 2017

Political Commentary

Like most Americans in this world of changing political climate, I’m interested in our future as a whole. It doesn’t take a genius to see that we, as a nation of lemmings, face an inevitable dive off a very tall cliff. The pounding waves of unrest awaits.

We are a nation of lemmings being herded by a pack of rats. Screwy little vermin that manipulate us with fake news that sends multitudes of us scurrying into a panic. Yes, I’m talking about the media that’s quick to report on anything and everything negative.

But that isn’t anything new—negativity sells.

Pessimism, disapproval, corruption and all those nasty bits of cheese feed the rat and in turn the rat feeds us. The mass media wrings it paws and salivates while taking something minor and making it major. Case in point—everything President Trump or his cabinet does is scrutinized, dug through, and turned over again and again until any truth is sifted out. The Flynn fiasco is one.

Was Flynn wrong for talking to the Russians back in December? Most certainly, but the rats are not satisfied with Flynn’s resignation, they ask,

“When did President Trump find out and how much did he know?” (CNN)

“Flynn departure erupts into a full-blown crisis for the Trump White House,” (Washington Post)

It can't be like this, can it?

What is truth anymore?

Berkeley campus protest spilled into the streets.

Inaugural day protest.

Riots in January, December and November.

Who feeds the masses of lemmings their kibble?

The media.
