The Thin Line of Freedom on the Corner (RR)

Where is the “Russian collusion?”

(Feb. 4, 2018) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the oasis for the mind: ‘The Pulse of the Nation.’ Hello, I’m Mr. Roving and I’ll be your host while we interview a few of our neighbors. What we do is stand on the corner across the street from the railroad station and waylay just about anybody. You, sir, what do you say we waylay you?”

“Hey, Roving. Been walking this route for the past ten years but always seem to be running late. How you guys doin?’”

“Fine. So what’s your name and what’s bugging you these days?”

“Name is Harold and it’s the Russians.”

“Care to be a little bit more specific?”

“The Russians of the Clinton Foundation.”


“The Russians of the DNC.”


“The Russians of The View, MSNBC, CNN, Morning Joe and all the other left-behind employees of companies who won’t share in the booty from the tax cuts.”

“So what about Trump?”

“Trump represents the ever-feared Outsider. An Outsider is anyone who has no qualms about exposing the Swamp. The Swamp represents how the system can be manipulated to protect the people who control where the tax dollars are distributed, which explains why the high-end automobile market is in the Washington, DC, area and not anywhere else.”

“So there never were any Russians.”

“The fake Russians were real enough, though. The whole fake story was so real that for way too many it’s still real. Even though the facts are out and prove that the Russian story is a fake, it apparently has its own life.”

“Even though it never ever really had a life to begin with.”

“All made up.”

“Ten bucks says that someone says there’s still a Russian connection.”

“Dan Rather, for one; and then everyone on The View and Morning JoeJoe Namath is really out there, touting the patriotism of Colin Kaepernick, as if disrespecting the flag, the troops and the country is somebody’s God-given right to make a public fool out of oneself. I think Joe had a few too many concussions, don’t you?”

“Trouble is once they learn they can push somebody’s button they keep doing it, and Joe keeps on running his mouth so they keep interviewing him so he can make a complete fool of himself on national TV. Pretty neat, don’t you think?”

“That’s entertainment; anything to keep us amused. And that’s why they have Ron DeSantis on TV: the original ‘King of Spin.’ Excuse us while we take a commercial break.”

“Okay, we’re back and about to interview Rita who is in sales at one of our major department stores. Okay, Rita, you’re on, so tell us, what’s on your mind?”

“I was watching a television show the other night about today’s military; actually, it was a couple of Marines going through Boot Camp. I always thought that you’re supposed to train the way you fight and to fight the way you train, but if that’s the case I guess our troops expect maid service and catered food. My father was in the service and he never told any stories where anybody was, how do I say, ‘kid-gloved?’”

“That bad? I mean, not much of a challenge, is that what you’re trying to say? But first, a commercial.”

“I’m not sure what I’m trying to say except that it seems that as long as the poppy crop in Afghanistan isn’t interrupted everything is well with the world. It seems to me that it’s the Western civilized countries that are the big consumers of heroin and morphine. I believe that the drug lords and the cartels of South of the Border are a direct result of America’s insatiable appetite for drugs; that we’re the ones responsible for the chaos and mayhem and all of the murders and kidnappings and human trafficking along the border.”

“And you’re in sales? What do you sell?”

“Shoes. And Trump is upsetting the apple cart with his war on drugs. You see, our government and police forces would go broke if it wasn’t for all the illegal activity, and drugs tops the list. The money is unbelievable: plastic garbage bags full of money. There’s just way too much money out there to put a stop to it, and that’s the problem. You see, people don’t care about the country or the Constitution: all they care about is themselves, which is why cops, after they make a drug bust, always set the street value of the bust and it’s ALWAYS more than the current value, so as to increase their cop budgets, just like all the other government agencies do. Trump wants to put an end to it, ergo, have to keep the gravy train going by getting rid of Trump, and if that includes making stuff up like the Russian thing, Morning Joe and other anti-American programs are more than willing to drive the nail into the coffin that we know as the Constitution. And here’s my train. Bye.”

“Bye and thanks for talking with us. The thin line of right over wrong, or I guess I should say the thin line of wrong over right, of destroying a country so you don’t ever have to admit you’re wrong. So I would ask Morning Joe: what’s it going to take to admit that Trump is right and you were forever wrong? And I’m afraid our time is up and so, on behalf of the crew, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”
