DUH BAIT



I'm tired...
Got back last night from my travels...
Haven't even unpacked... 
But I did catch the debate.
And I gotta say...
I’m not so much getting tired of politics… 
As I am of all the lies…
Or should I say, untruths?
If I could invent one thing..
I would invent THE ZAPPER...
A cross between a lie detector and a taser…
So when politicians are asked questions…
And they tell an untruth...
They’d get—ZAPPED!
“Congressman will you…”
ZAP!
“Mr. President, are you…”
ZAP!
“Governor, have you…”
ZAP!
“Vice President, are those your real teeth?”
ZAP!
Besides being amused (at least I would be)..
We’d find out the real truth…
Of course some ‘group’ would object…
Saying that politicians’ ‘right to lie” are being violated.
But truthfully?
I’m frustrated!
I want the truth and nothing but the truth.
If only politicians and the media…
Would just give us the truth…
I think you, I, and the rest of the country…
Can draw our own conclusions…
Don’t you?
If you had The Zapper…
Who would you zap?

Always, Em-Musing

I want to zap them all. I vote for you!

I agree with everything you have said. Very eloquently spoken. I'm tired of being lied to.

However, something that bothers me even more is that my vote doesn't count on the national level. Because we use an electoral college, and because birds of a feather flock together, the analysts already know which states are Blue and which are Red.

And I've heard more than once, that Ohio will decide our president.

So I feel castrated by the electoral college. Like nothing I watch or try to educate myself nationally matters.

It all rests on Ohio.

Sigh.

And that's why Michael, I'm flying back home the end of this week...to be there to vote. OMG! My very own vote could decide the election!!! Yeah, yeah...I know...it's all about the electorial votes.

Lol I thought the same thing about Biden's teeth. And if he was on medication.

Still trying to zap Biden's teeth?
Welcome home, Leigh.

At least the 3rd debate was a little bit more civil than the last 2.
