“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. Each of us is the sum of our life’s experiences, so they say, but I’m not convinced, not when the subject of ‘poise’ is introduced. Poise is the one human trait that can’t be taught. Oh, you can tell people how to act in a certain way when such-and-such happens, but real, can’t-be-faked poise just happens to be a part of a person as much as their physical body. Take me, for example. I know what poise is and I can appreciate it in a person, but no matter how much I try and maintain a certain attitude, well, let me just say from the start that I’m a dismal failure and with us to explain it all is none other than our own Madam Shylock.”

“Thank you, Zork – may I call you ‘Zork?’ Very well, thank you for such a glowing introduction. And you’re right: you lack poise; matter-of-fact, you’re a klutz. You lack decorum; you have the appreciation of good manners yet you don’t possess any. I know, I know: you try your best. Sad to say, many try their best but fall dismally short, and there’s no better example than to compare Michelle Obama and Jill Biden with Melania Trump.”

“Is that fair? I mean, isn’t that taking it to extremes? That’s like comparing an Edsel with a Porsche, even an Edsel that’s gone through a complete makeover: you still have an Edsel.”

“That is the unfortunate truth: you can take Michelle out of South State Street, Chicago, but you can never take the clothing consignment stores out of Michelle; you can send Jill Biden to school but you could never teach her any admirable traits that little girls would care to emulate.”

“Look, I agree wholeheartedly, but aren’t you being a little bit overboard on your comparisons?”

“Many women — well, young ladies, pay me to tell them what it takes to be a success, and I sure as heck am not going to tell them to use a crutch when they can run freely, understand? In the last decade – actually a little longer – not one girl, woman, female has asked to be like anybody BUT Melania Trump. No one, not one, mind you, ever asked to be like Michelle Obama or Jill Biden: not one; ever. It has always has been and ever will be Melania Trump, understand?”

“Not quite.”

“Zork, please pay attention and don’t be dense. It’s very clear: brains over pettiness; learning deductive reasoning by actively reading* vs. education by television; learning from humanity’s past mistakes or willfully repeating square-one due to ignorance?”

“So what’s the end result?”

“Really? You really want to know how it will all end, how our police will follow the orders from the fraud Biden or losers such as Pelosi and Schumer who are the champions of gun confiscation; rounding up believers in the Constitution and of free speech, and driving them to the nearest cemetery to be shot in the back of the head after they’re made to dig their own graves, just as the NAZI regime did to any dissenter of the Third Reich? Do I have to spell it out for you? Do I have to say that Joe Biden is following Nicolás Maduro‘s playbook down to the last play so we end up eating the animals of the zoo and our own dogs?”

“Golly, Madam Shylock, how about lightening it up a bit?”

“You want lies, listen to PBS, Fake News and Government-Speak; listen to Biden’s State of the Union. If you want the truth, then admit that this election was a fraud, just like this government. Facts are facts; learn to live with it: as long as the fraud is in the White House; as long as those who cheated in the election are not thrown in prison; and as long as we keep using the same voting machines, don’t bother me with make-believe fairy tales of honor and ‘Second Revolutions.’ We’ve been had; either accept it or get on with fixing it.”

“How?”

“Forget any organization that would benefit from a Police State, such as law enforcement, government departments and the Pentagon. Think ‘church’ and ‘grassroots’ and you’ll be in the ballpark. The first step is to recognize that Biden-Harris is the death of our country, okay? At least you got that much, I hope. Now I must get back to making some money to buy food and water and ammo for a rainy day. Bye.”

“Well, okay, then. There’s one thing you got to give her: she sure as heck speaks her mind. And that’ll do it for us and so I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”
