(Nov. 25, 2020) — “An Unexpected Journey” (1:29)

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. With us today is one of our troubled Vietnam Veterans who has a real problem with anybody suggesting that President Trump did not win the election, that our Constitution is to be trampled on, and that it’s okay to disrespect our flag. Welcome to the show and, by the way, how do you want to be called?”

“I think I would like you to call me ‘I told you so’ and I’ll call you Professor Zorkophsky’; will that work for you?”

“I can see that you have some sort of attitude; I wonder where that stems from?”

“I think it stems from understanding that Socialism doesn’t work, never has and never will. The reason why is pretty clear: the philosophy of getting something for nothing is that’s exactly what you get: nothing. You think the USA will be any different than Venezuela, you better think again. Look at what we got: abject losers such as FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General William Barr swaggering around like peacocks with their feathers spread, strutting their importance, yet Lois Lerner, Hillary and Barry Soetoro (aka Obama) ARE STILL not locked-up in cages with bars for windows.”

“As you may know, I worked at the VA for a time as a psychiatrist treating PTSD sufferers and have come to the conclusion that The Oath is a rock on which many, if not all, tie their mooring line to.”

“You mean like an anchor? Actually, that’s pretty good, Professor Zorkophsky; not bad. Got any more?”

“Books of them; ever read one of my books?”

“A few.”


“And what do you say we quit the chitchat; the dancing-around, and get to the core of your question: the relationship between someone stealing a vote and a bullet aimed between your eyes?”

“Let’s do. Lay it out for us, after this commercial break.”

I Want to be Wanted” (3:05)

“First of all, there’s no relationship between law enforcement and the military. Law enforcement, the police, follow the orders of the mayor; state troopers follow the orders of the governor, whereas the military follows the orders of the Commander-in-Chief and the both of them, the military and the president, are overseen by the Constitution. The Constitution is the overriding principle for the military: the police have no such restraints.”

“I see. And I guess next you’re going to say that Veterans and those who haven’t served are also different, live by a different set of rules?”

“No, I’m not, because that would be wrong: EVERYONE should operate (live) under the guise of the Constitution; it’s as simple as that.”

“Under your scenario there wouldn’t have been riots in Baltimore and Portland, right?”


“Cut-and-dried, right?”

“Look, I’m sorry, but I really get incensed when I see cops just lounge around while their city (that they swore to protect) is looted and burned, not to mention violence; the sucker punches that we’ve all seen on TV.”

“You sound as if you don’t have much respect for our men and women in blue.”

“That’s a fact. Bur remember this: mayors used to act with prudence, at least a semblance of prudence, and then Mayor Richard Daley took over Chicago, where even the dead voted, which was a big joke back in the 1950s and ‘60s.”

“He got Kennedy elected.”

“Or you could say he got Kennedy killed, because had JFK never been elected he wouldn’t have been assassinated in Dallas.”

“That is true. I suppose you could say beware of what you lie about. I’ve found the best policy is to tell the truth or keep your mouth shut.”

“I tend to lean towards the keep-your-mouth-shut philosophy of life.”

“I wish I knew that back when.”

“I think most of us feel that way.”

“So what’s to be done, I mean, to save our Republic?”

“I am not adverse to the firing squad, but we need each and every participant in this election fraud to be jailed and stripped of their government pension, because if we don’t cut the head off the Hydra, we’ll just see it reemerge during the next election and the one after. We either take care of business, or continue to let Wray and Barr do nothing and squander the lives of our fallen sailors and soldiers.”

“Well-said; I guess you’re not as bananas as I first thought. Well, folks, that’ll do it for this episode of ‘Pulse’ and so, on behalf of ‘I told you so,’ this is Zork wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

Meet Me In The Bottom” (4:38)

  1. From the pen of ‘I told you so’:

    The evening of my interview with Professor Zorkophsky, I was reminded how much I despise anyone who would steal a vote, or pad votes, or lie about the honest results of this past election.

    That night I heard this Keith Olbermann character spouting off — actually having a “Trump Derangement Syndrome” tantrum or, as they say in the military, “a performance worthy of a Section Eight” — which really ticked me off, so much so, that I had that same old feeling as if someone was shooting at me on the field of battle, or on a dark street in Hong Kong when two guys jumped me and put a knife to my throat, and here I am.

    I humbly suggest that those who spout or believe the spout about “Bad Orange Man” stop your childish bad behavior or someone just like me washes your mouth out with soap.
