“THE DECK IS STACKED AGAINST US”

(Nov. 12, 2017) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘Pulse of the Nation,’ the one show that just tells the truth for you, the viewer, to take it or leave it. Most, it seems, leave it and that’s okay: we can only do so much. Each of us has or knows someone who has a great story of love and sacrifice, only to have the door slam in their faces at the finish line. Hello, my name is Roving and I’ll be your host for tonight’s show.
“My investigation into the Las Vegas shooting was exacerbating because either law enforcement is totally incompetent or conducting a very clever cover-up; there may be even more angles to the story that I’m not aware of.
“As you can see, I’m back on our corner across from the railroad station interviewing our neighbors as they go about their day. But first, time-out for a commercial.”

“Excuse me, sir, care to be on ‘Pulse,’ the television show that informs as well as entertains?”
“No way. I know who you are; I ought to; been watching ‘Pulse’ from the beginning. Always thought it was a lot of hot air. You sure have a lot of very strange people on; do you know that? And a lot of American Indians, too. I think the whole show is a fake and this Talking Dog was the last straw. What do you take us for, a bunch of fools?”
“I wouldn’t know about that, but standing directly behind you is the Vietnam Veteran with his Talking Dog. Why don’t you turn around and tell them they’re, as you say, ‘fakes?’”
“No, you can’t fool me. I’m not turning around for anyone. I see the cameraman standing behind you: you film me turning around to see if there’s a Talking Dog just after I said there was no such thing; that’s it all made-up, and make a fool of me, right here on camera. Not doing it.”
“Made-up like the Russian connection, maybe?”
“See? I was right. That’s right, all made-up like the Russians.”
“And the 20% of our uranium? Oops, sorry, but we’ve got to take a break for a commercial.
“And now we’re back. Let’s see, where were we? Oh, yes: and the 20% of our uranium?”
“Fake news; this whole show is nothing but a fake.”
“Excuse me, please, but the Talking Dog doesn’t particularly like your attitude. The dog says for me to tell you maybe an apology is in order.”
“Who are you?”
“I’m the Vietnam Veteran and standing at our feet is the Talking Dog. Say you’re glad to meet her. She says she’s glad to meet you.”
“I don’t believe this. Is everybody around here nuts?”
“Look, the dog says for you to act polite; at least pretend to be having a good time. The dog wonders what you do for a living.”
“I’m a playwright.”
“No kidding? What are some of your works?”
“Oh, you know what? I’ve seen those, in the theaters where they allow Service Dogs, that is.”
“So you’re a Service Dog?”
“My master is bonkers. Came back bonkers, and for proof it’s his history of an infallible record of bad decisions. He has a habit of talking when he should be keeping his mouth shut, which is why I do most of the talking for him.”
“But you’re a dog and dogs don’t talk.”
“No, they don’t, but I tell him what to say through what’s called ‘mental telepathy,’ which is just a fancy term for being on the same page, like we’re really one animal, understand? I tell him what to think, too.”
“This is fascinating. I ought to write a play about you two.”
“Call it ‘The Adventures at the Small Dog Park,’ why don’t you?”
“Is there a point to all of this?”
“You bet and it’s called misdirection. It’s the government and the mainstream news media – same thing – saying stuff like ‘workplace violence’ and ‘mentally unhinged.’ It’s the government turning a blind eye to what’s happening all around the world, let alone around us.
“It’s the ‘peaceful and misunderstood’ aspect of torture and murder. It’s the totally ignoring public massacres such as the Murfreeboro’s church murders and the beheading in Oklahoma and the deliberate targeting of anyone in uniform resulting from the marriage between Black Lives Matter; Nation of Islam; and the worldwide Jihad.
“It’s the inability of politicians to tell the truth. It’s the inability of clergy to tell the truth. It’s the coward’s way out: ignore the problem and it’ll just go away because, after all, we must cater to the lowest common denominator among us; the dumbest; the most easily-swayed; the Obots and Hillary supporters; the Bernie ignoramuses who believe that our way of Socialism won’t fail as all the others because of our steadfast belief in a fantasy that everyone else isn’t as greedy and underhanded that we ourselves are. Let the others sweat and toil as I live the ‘Life of Riley’: give me; give me; give me: free college; free this; free that. Let the fools pay for it, but not me.
“I have a friend who owns a movie theater, so the other day, while I was there, he kicked out a couple of adults and their kids who sneaked in. He said to me that the kids don’t automatically get a free pass, now do they?
“Just like DACA, isn’t it? Just because the kids got in because their parents broke the law doesn’t give the kids an automatic free pass to stay in the movie theater or to stay in our country.
“Meanwhile…another few hundred of the ‘Kill the Jews and the Christians wherever Ye may find them’ types just walked off the jetways and were welcomed into America by the United States Government, so there.
“As long as Islam is treated socially and legally as a religion instead of a political philosophy, you won’t have a snowball’s chance. So go ahead, issue the building permit for the mosque, but at least have the common decency to call it what it is: an ARMORY so our ‘peace-loving’ Muslim neighbors have the weapons they need to kill us on hand.”
“Look, you two, we’ve run out of time.”
“I must say, it was an enjoyable experience, talking to a dog. You know, Muslims kill dogs.”
“We know that, and we know that when they say a deranged person beheaded someone at least we’re hearing the truth, for sure.”
“Look, we have to sign off, so I’ll be wishing you all, on behalf of the crew, a goodnight: Goodnight.
“You know, some shows are just too short. That playwright made a good point, though: tell the news, even if it’s fake, to divert attention away from what’s really important. Germany, Sweden and England are at the tipping point; they’re at the precipice, the knife edge: today they have the ability to deport all of their Muslims, but in a little while it’ll be too late and they’ll be lost forever to the depravity that is Islam, and the USA isn’t that many years behind.
“In the USA there’ll be more and more Muslim gang rapes and ‘honor killings’ but they’ll continue to be ignored by the mainstream media who are owned, by the way, by Muslims, or Democrats. I’m beginning to believe they’re all the same: “DEATH to the INFIDEL and Those Who Insult Islam” has the same ring to it as “Down With Free Speech!” The deck is stacked against us, unless we take the bull by the horns by denying entry and start deporting those that are here. But enough: what do you say we grab a burger: my treat.”
