â€œIâ€™ve1 seen how inadequate words can be in bringing about lasting change,â€ Obama said. â€œIâ€™ve seen how inadequate my own words have been.â€
If President Septimius Severus wonders why he canâ€™t change things other people think or believe, he should ask himself2 how often heâ€™s actually spoken with anyone other than himself. He should also listen to what he says to himself and run a regression analysis between his words and operative reality. If the r2ADJ is low, and the only audience is the one in the mirror; than he really shouldnâ€™t expect his words to have any impact beyond what usually happens when you bullsh!t yourself.
According to Septimius, itâ€™s easier for a teenager to get a firearm than it is to get a computer or a book. Thatâ€™s why I hang loose at Barney Nobleâ€™s: latte and firepower. What could go wrong? Where other than Best Buy would you go to stock up on your back-to-school RPGs? And he wasnâ€™t through lying yet either.
You see Micah Xavier Johnson, the guy who shot up the cops in Dallas, Texas specifically stated the following.
â€œThe suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter,â€ Brown said during a press conference on Friday. â€œHe was upset about the recent shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect said he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.â€
President Severus responded with â€œI think itâ€™s very hard to untangle the motives of this shooter.â€ That I was only one of forty-five references to himself in his speech, which makes that speech more about him than its ostensible topic. He treats the presidency the same way: as a chance for self-promotion, and consequences? Those are for little people.
Maybe I should give him three guesses as to the shooter’s motive. Iâ€™ll call it affirmative action and not even make the first two count. After a couple of warm-up pitches, I‘m certain that Harvard intellect will kick into high overdrive. It totally confuses me that he hasnâ€™t already figured it out. Heâ€™s got smart people like John F. Kerry advising him every day.
But enough of my silly fvckery. I laugh at this man-taco we elected President not once, but twice only to avoid crying for the beloved republic. He amazes me with the total and awesome contempt he has for his audience. But then again, he only talks about the things he actually cares about with the people that matter. Those discussions stay between him and his mirror. That makes me plenty happy. Our current President is an empty suit from a cheap, dying shopping mall, with nothing of substance to say.
1 I-nalysis of this blog post found it to be self-referential a total of 14 times in 490-some words. Thatâ€™s a Net Arrogance Index (NAI) = 0.0286. Presidential material â€“- even if I say so my own self…
2 The only guy he seriously spoke with in Dallas, Texas yesterday.
