(Feb. 27, 2017) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘Pulse of the Nation,’ the television show that entertains as well as informs. As you can see, we’re back on our corner, under the umbrella, across from the railroad station, about to waylay this young woman. Excuse me, Miss, Roving Reporter here for ‘Pulse.’”

“Oh, hello. We’re always talking about your show at the water cooler. What’s the question of the day?”

“The question of the day is: ‘What would you think of a father of a dead Navy Seal refusing to meet president Trump?”

“There’s my train: my quick answer is that his son is turning in his grave. It’s too bad that the son was ashamed of his father, isn’t it? Bye.”

“Okay. Hey, everyone, look what the cat dragged in: it’s none other than our own Professor Zorkophsky. How you doing? Got time to answer a question for us?”

“For sure. If I’m late I’ll still collect a full paycheck. What’s the question?”

“What do you think of those paid protesters?”

“I take it you’re referring to those who protested in Ferguson, Missouri, and at all these Republican town halls; am I correct?”

“You got it.”

“Actually, paying people to protest is nothing new. Back in the days of the Roman Empire senators paid people to cheer them on the way to the senate, either to boost their ego or to let the other members of the senate know how popular they were.

“There’s a scene in the movie, ‘The Quiet Man,’ where the population in majority – Catholics — are encouraged to ‘cheer like Protestants, and examples abound of false cheering with good intentions. But there are no examples where people are paid to protest as a means of continued employment. And there’s no examples of people being paid to protest lies, such as ‘Hands up; don’t shoot’ and ‘the Russians rigged the election.’

“And speaking of the Russians, had the Russians rigged the election Hillary would’ve won, and the fact that Trump won should be proof enough that the Russians didn’t rig the election. I believe our whole country’s IQ is being lowered to the lowest common denominator, and that would be those who host The View and their brain-dead audience.

“Ask yourself one question: If Russia had a choice between Hillary, who is #1) open borders; #2) pro-Muslim (accepting Muslim money to line her political war chest and allow Muslim-called refugees to immigrate into our country); 3) pro-Obamacare, a taxation system that is going broke even as prices rise; #4) pro-NAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership;  #5) pro-abortion at time of delivery; 6) women in combat units and on Blue Water Navy ships; #6) Homosexuals in the military; #7) choice of washroom based on ‘identity’; #8) driver’s license for her ‘undocumented guest workers’; #9) against auditing The Fed; #10) allowing four Americans to be murdered in Benghazi and the Ambassador, Chris Stevens, to be tortured to death, and on-and-on, evermore weakening America, OR MAKE-AMERICA-GREAT-AGAIN Donald J. Trump. OF COURSE THE RUSSIANS WOULD CHOOSE HILLARY!

“These paid protesters who protest against Trump are the lowest form of citizen: they take money from the enemies of our country to promote our destruction. We’ve moved way past Party; way past Democrat or Republican. We’re at the stage of America surviving vs. America dying at the hands of the paid protesters, and if you don’t think McCain, Ryan, Elizabeth Warren and Schumer aren’t in the gutter along with the OTHER paid protesters, you’ve got another thing coming. In reality, there’s no difference between a paid protester and a paid politician who are in lockstep with all the other America-haters of the world.

“They’re anti-Constitution; ergo, anti-USA; ergo anti-Patriot; ergo, anti-you and anti-me. Want a news flash for your viewers? Every citizen has the constitutional right to protect and defend himself by any means necessary. And I must catch this train; I’ve a class to teach. See you around, Roving.”

“Thanks for your input. Do we have time for one more? We do? Looks like you’re it, kid. What’s your name and how old are you?”

“My name is Tim and I’m 12.”

“What’s your take on these paid protesters?”

“It’s the oldest trick in the book: misdirection. See, the Democrats really lost the election because of their platform; it wouldn’t have made any difference if JFK came back from the dead. People are sick and tired of having their fellow Americans killed by illegal immigrants.

“Forget death by machete and gun: DUI’s are the preferred method. Add rapes and child molestation, torture, kidnapping, drugs, gangbangers, there can be absolutely no defense, but the Democrats, in their infinite stupidity, recite Jeb Bush’s: ‘An act of love.’  The majority of Americans are not actually as stupid as the nonsense expressed by The View on a daily bases. I ought to know, my grandmother lives with us and that’s all we hear every day at supper.”

“Okay, good answer. Besides the illegal and Muslim problem, what else?”

“Besides the affordable Obamacare? Remember after the second year of Pelosi’s ‘Affordable; affordable; affordable,’ all those restaurants that went out of business, let alone all the other businesses since then? ‘Can’t have more than 50 employee’ nonsense? I mean, really now, do people get dumber as they get older, because if I can figure it out at 12 what hope do we have?”

“Trust me, it’s hard. I was trapped on a Navy cruiser during Vietnam and I was the only sane one on board. You seem like an articulate and knowledgeable young man. mind if I ask you where you go to school?”

“Oh, thank you. Not at all: I attend St. Mary’s; have since kindergarten.”

“It shows. What you going to do when you grow up, or I should say ‘get older?’”

“Well, after high school I’ll join some branch of the military, maybe even the Coast Guard, then I’ll see. Get married to a girl who shares my values of commitment and trust. Stay out of trouble. Seen too many kids my age – who go to public school – get hooked on drugs, and the girls get pregnant before they graduate so they never do graduate, and raise stupid and ignorant kids the spitting image of themselves.”

“I’m sorry, but our time is up. I’d like to know your solution to the problem of overpopulation but I must sign off. And so, on behalf of the crew, I’d like to wish each and every one of our viewers out there in television-land a safe and happy goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. My take on these ‘protesters’ kind-of takes the wind out of the sails of the ship of protesting. I mean, the meaning isn’t the same; somehow it’s not honest or heartfelt or genuine. Like it’s fake; a lie: it may look good on the nightly news – hundreds of people marching and holding professionally-printed (and expensive, that somebody else paid for) signs, but it’s still nothing but a lie, and people can usually see through a lie in a New York minute. Amnesty? No, it’s one heck of a dangerous way to buy votes, isn’t it? The price is just too high. Hey, kid, we usually grab a burger after a show, care to join us? My treat.”
