I’ve posted about this before, but I am having trouble coming up with stuff to post. I try to stay on the humorous side of things, but a big part of that is making over the top comparisons. It just seems that things have gotten so over the top, it’s hard to use hyperbole.
See, two years ago, saying that the President of the United States was going force government ownership of General Motors, and fire their CEO would have been viewed as an impossible exaggeration. Now, well, not so much.
Two years ago, saying that Congress was going to draft legislation creating government run health insurance, and tax businesses and individuals that didn’t participate would have seemed like partisan mud-slinging. Or to assert that the government is looking to regulate the carbon dioxide output of individuals would have seemed ridiculous. Now, nothing is ridiculous.
If I tell you to get ready for the camps, how can possibly see that as an exaggeration? Clearly, that’s the only place there is left to go, if you’ll pardon the pun. How can you now rule out the possibility that speech on radio, tv, and the internet will be regulated and censored?
So, how is Hopey Changiness™ working out for you? Discuss amongst yourselves.
