Invasion of the Brain Snatchers

The above is one of the real "The Donalds", Sutherland. I can't remember where I saw this (the original pic of course is from the spine tingling Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake from the late 70's) but it appears on my Fb as a post I'd shared 5 years ago. Seems appropriate now as the fake orange Il Douche Drumpf Donald has pointed his stubby sausage link sized finger at everyone but himself this horrific, historic Presidential race. I'm not gonna weigh in on it here, as what's there to say that hasn't been said, but it's still curious to me how the bullshit media just runs with stuff for ratings and sensationalism knowing we may very well be entering the darkest part of American history since the Red Scare, and one perhaps rivaling the Civil war and slave trade if we keep heading down the path to Idiocracy and fascism we're heading. As is the case everyday nowadays, I'm reminded of how abhorrent and encouraging of impending doom the media has become by scanning the Fb newsfeed and reading the papers. Today, it was reported what Michelle Bachman Turner Overdrive said. Um... why is she still even remotely relevant (she isn't)? Why do her nut case twat farts make news, at all? She's nobody, hasn't been anybody for years (if she ever was anybody). the media seriously needs to stop posting about her and Anne Coulter and Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and other absolutely nonessential human beings already.It's like when they say a pro wrestler or former reality show child celebrity or something has "endorsed" a candidate. Why the fuck does it matter who or what they like, please? The media is just spreading info that falls on the "no need to know this crap" scale. Is this what freedom of the press has become? Freedom to publish toilet paper wipings? It's sad, especially in a Presidential year where people need to know important facts. It's a waste of time even if I just have to pass it on a news feed. Now I'm not saying people shouldn't have the right to say dumb fucking shit and tell us about dumb fucking people saying dumb fucking shit, I'm not into suppression or oppression, but where's responsible journalism? Give me the days where we knew there was the real stuff ands the national Enquirer, now it's a free for all of "look what I wrote". It's brain rotting stuff, and invasive as t's EVERYWHERE. It's uncool. We'll leave it at that. G'night.
