Blog #99: The Old Midway Hawker – His First Day in 2017

Can the old dude haul ‘em in? Is the Pope still in Rome?

Interviewed with his “arm candy” bride, on his arm of course, The Yuge Orange Mass who will become the leader of the free world in another 19 days said, I believe it was in reference to the alleged Russian hackings, “I’ve got information that no one else has!” With the “lyin’ media pushing microphones in his face, he added, “Maybe I’ll tell ya next Tuesday or Wednesday.” This old boy is a veritable genius when it comes to controlling the “news” cycle! So, I suppose we’ll all just have to wait with bated breath until early next week to learn just what it is that our hero “knows” that we dumb slobs don’t know. Reminiscent of the old fellow shouting to urge us to “come on in, and see the bearded lady with no hair!”

Yikes, sure hope my dear old editor overlooks that really run-on first sentence!

In other “news” to begin this glorious year of 2017, good old Fox “news” seems to be launching a concerted bashing of the “liberal media.” For Fox to be claiming “bias” in their fellow “news” channels is, of course, akin to the “teapot trying to call the kettle black!”

Sadly, in the “real news,” Muhammad Ali (slave name – Cassius Clay) is dead at age 74. As almost everyone in the world knows (we don’t need the “boss” to tell us), Ali was a legend in his own time! Early on, he declared, “I am the Greatest,” and went on to prove it. His signature line, “Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee” was his mantra in the ring, but his devotion to civil rights and to humanity in general is his legacy. Regarding The Yuge Orange Mass and his “Muslim Ban,” Ali said, “We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda. His tweet, “If you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you haven’t learned anything,” stands in stark contrast to our Prez-elect’s babbling on Twitter.

Oh, if those hapless Demoblicans could only find another individual similar in thinking and action to old Ali.

your favorite (I hope) hound doggie, Buster.
