Get Over It (RR)

(Jun. 30, 2020) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. That’s right, because with us today is the best-selling author of psychiatric textbooks, Professor Zorkophsky. Welcome to the show, Professor.”

“Glad you could stop by my most comfortable office, Roving, here at the university to help me hawk my new treatise titled ‘Government Indoctrination has Rendered the Next Generation Incapable of Dealing with Issues in a Rational Way: the real reason why they have their tantrums in public.’ Did you know it’s already on the bestseller list?”

“Congratulations. So who has their tantrums in public?”

“Why, the protesters and looters, that’s who. Oh, please call me ‘Zork’ as long as we’re in my most comfortable office.”

“You make it sound like they’re one and the same, Zork, the looters and protesters.”

“Because they are. Look, you can’t have one without the other. It’s too bad, but those are the facts of life. If people want to protest – to make a public statement – there are ways to do it without giving the green light to looters and arsonists. I don’t know how because I just don’t care, okay? So this cop in Minneapolis decides to spend the rest of his life behind bars; what kind of stupidity is that?”

“He wasn’t thinking.”

“He was thinking never to drive a car again; never to hear the Salvation Army Santa’s ringing for donations; never to be with family during Thanksgiving; forever giving up the chance of ever being alone, even for an instant, for the rest of his life because he traded his freedom for a four-time loser’s life.”

“So why all the riots?”

“An excuse to rile up the ignoramuses to get rid of Trump, and that’s all there is to it. Look, it’s all about the election, okay?”

“What about the flu?”

“You mean what about the Chinese flu?”


“The regular flu kills more than COVID-19, but everyone seems to get bent out of shape about the China variety.”

“Crazy, isn’t it? More Americans will die from the regular flu than from the Chinese flu, yet the whole economy shut down and thousands of small businesses went out of business, all to plan: they’ll do whatever it takes to destroy America to get rid of Trump, because Trump represents the Constitution and that’s it in a nutshell.”

“So this ‘Black Lives Matter,’ what’s that all about?”

“First and foremost is pushing the ‘Nation of Islam’ and the Jihad war against Western Civilization to take hold, which it has. The ignorant/stupid/gullible are the foot soldiers being used as pawns, thinking they are doing good when, in fact, they are being played, just as Hanoi Jane was played by the North Vietnamese. They are destroying their very own country, ergo they are doing the bidding of the enemy; pretty stupid, if you ask me. For proof, just look to Hollywood and be amazed.”

“Yes, it is quite amazing when you learn that money doesn’t buy brains; just look at Bill Gates giving Africans computers instead of wells and washing machines. So much for women’s lib, right?”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“I got a tip for you: before you have your car tuned-up, do an oil change, radiator flush, charge the battery and replace the PCV valve.”

“Good advice. And WD-40 removes glue, like if you have duct tape on windows or maybe a bumper sticker that needs to be trashed.”

“Okay, getting back to my book. The thing about it that’s different than any other of mine is that I really wrote it as a screenplay so it makes for really enjoyable reading.”

“So your book is about dumb people doing what?”

“Protesting, toppling statues, looting, arson; the usual these days.”

“And these people believe in the motto Black Lives Matter,’ meaning to the exclusion of all others; is that about the gist of it?”

“Yes, they shun the word ‘all’; makes them feel inclusive and they wouldn’t want that. The Asians embrace the American way, but for some reason some of us never got around to it. They wouldn’t want to learn how to speak English, and for proof they vote for Democrats to insure that their kids don’t learn a darn thing in school. These kids, these ‘protesters,’ better learn to get over it or else they’ll be crawling through the landfills of America looking for food, just as the Venezuelans are doing. Guess what? Socialism doesn’t work; never has and never will.”

“Another sanctuary city bites the dust.”

“Cities full of Muslims, illegal immigrants; where there is no law and order: vote for Biden to insure America’s destruction.”

“Do you think your book will be made into a movie?”

“Yes, I do; at least as a ‘movie of the week.’”

“Anything interesting to show us around your office?”

“Plenty, but I got a call waiting from the West Coast. Hold it, I’ve got time to show you this box. Look inside. Looks empty, right? Wrong. Inside is space, which, to our current way of thinking, is expanding. So if I measured the box this morning and measure it now, it’ll have grown because the inside — the space —  has expanded. Now listen — this is important — while the space inside the box was expanding, everything else around it — the whole universe —was expanding at exactly the same rate, so even though the box is larger, so are our measuring devices; that is, until now. See this ruler? Made of a special metal based on mercury. I think while the universe was expanding, this measuring device has remained constant. Anyway, that’s the idea.”

“Good luck with that. And so, on behalf of the crew and Zork, this is your Roving Reporter (RR) wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show, Zork. Burger time: my treat.”

She’s Not You” (2:12)
