Rush Limbaugh and His Minions Clog the Internet Like Too Much Matzoh on Passover
Rush Limbaugh has gotten alot of press lately for being a gigantic bore who speaks first and entertains rational thought later, maybe only after he is in bed sleeping soundly with a C-Pap machine and a stomach full of pain pills. However, there is an even more ubiquitous menace out there. I am referring to individuals who, as one observer terms it, “preach, pontificate, pronounce and prescribe” their every opinion online. No, I am not speaking about myself, although a few readers might understandably have assumed that.
If you read any news article on the Web and then scroll down to the “comment boards” below there is one overwhelming conclusion, that most people are idiots. The degree of insanity, faulty reasoning, and haywire conclusions drawn by many people no matter what the topic is astounding. The additional input of patently bogus sales people marketing Viagra, penny stocks and dating sites through inane segues like, “Sure he killed the guy but I met a great guy at this new website doucheforme.com!” are an almost welcome relief from the absurd conjecture and moronic ramblings of folks who have nothing better to do then troll the internet for stories to comment on. Another admittedly unscientific observation is this: the more “friends” or “awards” the posting party has next to their name, the lower the IQ score. One wonders whether the webmasters or editors who review these comments are either: illiterate themselves, temporary hires from the funny farm, or people who actually enjoy and affirm our civil right to engage in argumentation without logic or grammar of any kind. Like is attracted to like and the result is most often a free for all of stupid. Sometimes it is partisan stupidity broken down into Obama haters or haters of all things “un-American” , but generally the more extreme the belief system, the dumber the verbiage. I see no immediate cure for this rash of vacuous minds and lamebrained speakers. I only commiserate with those who dare to think first and offer balanced feedback later, only to have the next forty comments blame it all on Obama, the French or “Feminazis”. Rush Limbaugh you fat blowhard, take a bow. Your class of crass has graduated and is choking the world wide web with bombastic garbage commentary. I’ve heard of the term “spawn of Satan” but I dont quite know what to call your minions except maybe dented chips off the old wingnut. With Passover approaching we need to think about how to clean out the offending substances in our homes that violate our intentions to become better citizens and more thoughtful people. A real dialogue goes both ways and leads to a more open, refreshed state of mind and body. Sure i know too much matzah can have the opposite effect, but maybe turning Limbaugh off for good is a great start. L’chaim!
