(Sep. 21, 2019) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation.’ At this time we’re turning over the program to Madam Shylock, the extraordinaire fortune-teller down in Cassadaga, FL, where she’ll tell us about the press, in their mindless support of Socialism, striving to put themselves out of the free speech business, the news industry, and take choice off the board. Take it away, Madam Shylock.”

“Thank you, Roving. Now you viewers out there, pay attention:

“Once upon a time, in a far-away land, there was free speech, up to a limit. No, they couldn’t yell ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater when there was no fire; they couldn’t accuse somebody of rape without evidence; and they couldn’t make up damaging stuff just to ruin somebody’s reputation, career, and future. Actually, when you think about it, there were a thousand and one things they couldn’t do but there was one thing they could do, and that was to strive to live by the Golden Rule.

“Yes, that’s right: I did say strive, and by that I meant they at least made the effort to do good and not go out of their way to do bad, like some of us have done, are doing, and will do tomorrow, if given half a chance. Yes, I’m talking about the mindless, hate-filled delusional people who bought into the ‘You can keep your doctor’ to the ‘Russian hoax’ and are prepared to believe in yet another lie, one right after the other, until they learn better or death, whichever comes first.

“We are all on a fantastic voyage, traveling through space at unimaginable speeds, on a spaceship that we call home. Our home is a dangerous place and there’s no really safe place to be: down below there’s earthquakes caused by the shifting of the tectonic plates which are all floating on a sea of lava; up above we have the chance of a meteor smashing onto our land, like what happened in Arizona some time back; and on the surface, if volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, lightening and hail aren’t enough, we have billions of really crazy people who would like nothing better than to steal from us, rob, torture and take our lives. Let’s take a break.”

“Very well. As if all the natural disasters aren’t enough – and I didn’t even mention a whole host of other dangers – we have ourselves to either blame or get us through life, if you follow me. Our species – humans, right? —  are not that far-removed from living in caves, treehouses or some kind of shelter made from hides or fronds, thanks to a whole host of pioneers, like, for instance, Thomas Edison. But all the brilliant people had to be able to spread their wings, so to speak: in other words, all of those who have gone before us – Plato, Euclid, Galileo, Shakespeare, Newton, Martin Luther, Hugo, Longfellow, Einstein, Hemingway, had to have the vehicle available in order to do what they did. I mean, if Louis Pasteur couldn’t experiment, and if someone couldn’t connect the dots, maybe we would still be fearing smallpox, if you get my meaning. Madam Curie did her thing because she was taught to read and write and given the opportunity to dream of achieving scientific success*.

“And, yes, someone had to make Madam Curie’s dresses, bake her bread, and clean the streets. So the policeman who directed the traffic that delivered the goods to Madam Currie’s district also takes credit for the discovery that uranium gives off x-rays. But it’s all obvious, isn’t it, since we all have a stake in our advancement**, and we don’t know if time is a factor or not: none of us can foretell the future.  Maybe I can, but before we get into that, let’s take another break.”

“Getting back to what I was saying: we can’t afford to be wrong, cannot waste our time treading water, and must have the mindset to make each day as pleasant as possible because it may be our last. None of us can foretell the future, but we can make educated guesses that if we prepare we’ll be better off than if we didn’t prepare for anything. One of the first beheadings done by our common enemy was of a truck driver delivering vaccines to children, as if polio is an acceptable condition for your child or any child. We have tried to educate our population that cleanliness is next to godliness.

“You and I can figure it out, but having millions of illegal immigrants in our country is, by any conservative estimate, a colossal health issue, just as is our homeless population living on the streets of our sanctuary cities. We have an epidemic of something knocking at our door, and right behind that we could have a pandemic resulting in disastrous results. Our Republic is at the crossroads of its existence, so don’t bet your life that just because you slept in your bed last night you will again tonight.

“Ever been to a construction site and used the chemical toilet, commonly called the Jiffy John or Port-o-Let, and come across one used by a group of illegal immigrants? I do not recommend it. Ever been to one of those at the polo grounds in Wellington, FL? There you go; day and night; right or wrong.

“So this is my conclusion: as long as the reporting of the news is accurate, I’m fine with that. What I’m not fine with are the lies pushed by the Left, as if open borders can somehow be construed as an advancement by any conceivable criteria, which it can’t; or the filth generated by the homeless is somehow beneficial to any of the parties involved; or having one illegal immigrant within our borders is something we can ignore, just as we’ve ignored the 20+ millions for the past decade.

“But it gets worse, doesn’t it? When we have a murder by a resident it’s not called a terrorist incident***, even though that so-called resident was imported from Somalia by the State Department**** for, well, you figure it out. I’m telling you that the press isn’t telling us the truth, is what I’m saying. Looks like Newsmax is the only TV game in town, doesn’t it?”

“Sorry to interrupt you, Madam Shylock, but I’m afraid we’ve run out of time. If Socialism takes hold, goodbye, free speech; goodbye, objective news; goodbye, First Amendment. This is Roving, on behalf of the crew and Madam Shylock, wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

[*scientific success: It is not logical to exclude half the population from contributing towards the advancement of the human race.]

[**our advancement: the WHOLE human race.]

[***terrorist incident: 2017 Las Vegas massacre; domestic or foreign-born, it’s still a terrorist incident, aka Muslim whacko; “moderate.”]

[****State Department: either they allow Muslims to enter our country because they don’t know any better or else they’re in on it.]

I Think My Dog is a Democrat” (3:38)
