This is Kansas City and there are nearly endless ways to get shot in this dirty, little town.
After all, 143 people have been murdered so far this year in KCMO and most of them by way of the gun.
Unfortunately, the political blather on cable TV news MIGHT NOW be another shooting danger in this cowtown and across a nation armed to the teeth with enough guns for every man, woman and rugrat.
Here's quick survey of the real threat from people getting too carried away with the news cycle:
Newweek: Majority of Likely Voters Say Trump's Impeachment, Removal Will Lead to Violence, Poll Finds
The Hill: Trump supporter says his removal could lead to the 'second Civil War'
MSNBC: Multiple Republicans have recently threatened the possibility of civil war in the United States when political outcomes have not gone their way, some even suggesting Donald Trump’s impeachment could spark a ‘civil war.’
Accordingly, and at the risk of giving readers a peek behind the curtain of every "journalist" in America . . .
NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO TAKE A BULLET FOR GAME SHOW PREZ TRUMP!!!
The real danger here is that this kind of tough talk could inspire people who are already unhinged or suffering mental health challenges to harm innocent people taking part in a mostly pointless political debate.
This is why we share pix of hotties and other silly stuff in order to relieve a bit of tension and prevent locals from taking political issues or themselves too seriously.
Accordingly, here's a good faith interlude . . .
Politicos in Missouri & Kansas on both sides of the aisle would do us all a favor by ramping down their rhetoric but that would risk diminishing the illusion of their importance in the grand scheme of things wherein people really care about gossip, big butts and celebrities on their phone far more than any issue related to voting or Democracy.
Don't get it twisted, we don't want to play the philistine skeptic on this issue . . . And so we offer a quick word from a comment favorite who makes a brilliant allusion to a nobler time in American history and also warns of rising American Conservative discontent.
Here's the best passage from a note sent our way . . .
Chuck: No Great Compromise
The irredentist cultural imperialism of newly minted immigration policies, resulting in dramatic demographic changes, in conjunction with the unholy alliance of the Deep State and the Main Stream Media, have emboldened the third arm of the "Triumvirate" The DNC, to initiate the Impeachment of a sitting United States President for their subjective take on the meaning of a phone call. Astonishing.
Hypocritical Democrats, wrapping themselves in the Constitution, while seeking the mitigation and removal of the 1st and 2nd Amendments (For Starters). The executive branch of government can only operate at the whim and caprice of the Democrat Legislative majority, or, Impeachment!
It is easy, for many of us to hear the speeches given by obtuse, belligerently ignorant, interstitial intellects like Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff and snicker up our sleeves at the over the top "Baghdad Bob" gas lighting and outright mendacity in the face of objective reality. That would be a mistake. It's not that they are not liars, they are. It's not that they will get Trump removed from office, they won't. It's not that Trump will not be reelected in 2020, he will.
This is all about the penultimate 2024 election, prior to the coda of the inevitable coming conflict at arms.
There are folks, working against the American people in the DNC, the Deep State and the Main Stream Media, that are orders of magnitude smarter we are, who, everyday do nothing but plot and plan to acquire more power, money and sinecure at the expense of the middle class. Satisfied, lumpen liberals, sitting in front of their Korean 42" TVs, chowing down on Micky D's by way of their Government Cheese Check are going to, with the help of entrenched, progressive SJW's outnumber and outvote their way, into a new bread and circus America that will be out of toilet paper faster than you can say 2024.
Enjoy the next 5 years, it is your last hurrah before the build up to the next Civil War.
Now . . .
This is a thoughtful and unique spin but, essentially, it's still a classic bit of keyboard warrior logic:
"VOTE MY WAY OR DIE!!!"
Fact is, the current impeachment drama is built into the Constitution along with the HIGHLY UNLIKELY prospect of Prez Trump's removal and ensuing acquittal by the Senate.
And yet, as Chuck notes, in the big picture, very little of this endless circus has garnered more attention from the American public than some of the better movies on Netflix.
Through our time blogging we've found that politics and the vast majority of American history is nothing more than a series of thinly veiled threats and empty promises intended to sway the masses and every so often spark worthwhile satire.
Brief aside, how cool is it that the Prez loves exclamation points nearly as much as this blog??? All of my old English teachers can suck it. But I digress . . .
As President Trump is now impeached, we throw all of this back to our blog community, politicos and any grousing rebels reading this blog tonight . . .
SPARE US THE THREAT OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE ON BEHALF OF PREZ TRUMP GIVEN THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T VOTE AND DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS EURO TRASH PHONE CALL DRAMA OR SOME RICH, WHITE GUY'S TELEVISION CAREER!!!
Accordingly, here's tonight's semi-historic news blast . . .
