HYPOCRISY, THY NAME IS "LIBERAL" (Or, MILLENNIALS SETTING THE EXAMPLE)

.
For a week or two, behind a large grocery store not far from where I live, I kept seeing a small, scroungy-looking group of Millennials hanging out like a pack of dirty dogs. (Millennials: EVERYBODY'S favorite Generation of Americans!)
.
Eventually, they moved on. I'm guessing they probably went somewhere to protest the dumping of chemicals into our lakes and streams. Or to protest the drilling for oil and the building of a pipeline. Or protesting the use of coal. Or air pollution; and Global Warming; and the cutting of timber where the endangered long-whiskered, short-eared, gray-spotted, fetid brown rats live.
.
Or maybe they just went off to protest the color white.
.
At any rate, wherever they went, they left something for the rest of us to remember them by:
.
.
It looks like someone came along afterwards and posted a sign to remind everyone why the area was strewn with trash, half-eaten food, and used Q-tips. (Who would do such a thing? ...Post a sign like that, I mean. )

[DOG POUND NOTES are simply random thoughts, ideas, and maxims that have occurred to me. I am totally convinced of the merit of some of them. Others may merely be food-for-thought or even outright Doggy Doo-Doo. I'll let you guess as to how I categorize each of them.]

NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, THE THREE Qs)

1) What is the Council on Foreign Relations?
.
2) What is the Federal Reserve System?
.
3) Have you read The Declaration Of Independence and The Constitution Of The United States Of America in their entirety at least once?
.
Unless a person forty years old or older can give reasonably good answers to the first two questions and can honestly answer "Yes" to the third one, you are probably wasting your time in discussing politics with them.

It is pointless to discuss politics with a person who has reached the age of 40 and is still taking .The Blue Pill. at breakfast every morning.

IT'S NOT A FKN DEMOCRACY! (Or, IT'S A FKN REPUBLIC!)

.
.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWLjYJ4BzvI

.
Hot Dog!!! (as George Bailey would say).  That video provides all the evidence that anyone with at least two brain cells to rub together would ever need to see in order to know that there IS a conspiracy and the media is completely in on it.

One commenter added this great line:

This is extremely dangerous to our Monopoly.

Of course, just the fact that most people think we live in a "Democracy" already proves how successful the brainwashing has been.

I pledge allegiance to the flag 
of the United States of America 
And to the Democracy for which it stands??!

The Founding Fathers detested Democracies and wrote extensively on why they eventually lead to tyranny by popular demand. And that's the reason our brilliant Founding Fathers gave us a... Republic. A Constitutional REPUBLIC!

As the accurate old saying goes:

"A Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding on what's for dinner."

C'mon, you Americonned Sheeple, WAKE THE HELL UP!

NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, GRAMMAR NAZISM)

.
.
[DOG POUND NOTES are simply random thoughts, ideas, and maxims that have occurred to me. I am totally convinced of the merit of some of them. Others may merely be food-for-thought or even outright Doggy Doo-Doo. I'll let you guess as to how I categorize each of them.]
.
No, I am not a "Grammar Nazi". I can't afford to be, as my own grammar is not good enough for that.
.
Nevertheless, I do have a grammar pet peeve. And that is when people say or write "I could care less" when what they should be saying or writing is: "I couldn't care less".
.
Not only is "I could care less" wrong, but it is 180-degrees wrong (literally, as wrong as it could possibly be), expressing the EXACT OPPOSITE of what the person really means to convey. There's just no excuse for that. And especially when it comes (as it frequently does) from professional writers and commentators. Start paying attention to how often people get it wrong, including people who make their livings using words, and you will be shocked inside of one month. 
.
Although this does not rise to the level of a pet peeve for me, another thing I've become painfully aware of is how often people say or write "BY THE WAY" ("BTW"), when what they really ought to be saying or writing is "INCIDENTALLY". Or even nothing at all.
.
There is no rule stating that you may not move on to a new topic without preceding it with an essentially superfluous remark like "By the way" or "Incidentally"
.
However, if you do wish to include an introductory remark or word, you should not be using "By the way" unless what you are about to say really is somehow related to something that was just expressed. "By the way" means that we are... by the way... or "in the neighborhood" of something that we were just discussing. There should be some shared idea or mood between what was just said and what you are now about to say if you are going to begin with "By the way,..."
.
"Incidentally" can be used to begin a new topic, if the new topic is not really related to anything that came before it. Or, if you'd prefer to save your breath or wear and tear on your fingers, you can just launch into the new topic without any introductory expression or word at all. "By the way" and "Incidentally" are really just conversational traditions that are mere ornaments; they are not at all necessary.
.
Lastly, I want to say that I cringe every time someone says, writes / texts "K" instead of "OK". Have we really reached a point where we're going to "dumb down" OK to K, just to save the trouble of saying or typing a single letter? WTP?! (I'll spare y'all the lecture on why "OK" should, technically, really be written as "O.K.", O.K.?) 
.
What's next? Just leaving half a parenthesis for a smiling face -- ) -- because adding a colon or semicolon for the eyes -- : ; -- is just way too time-consuming?!

POLICE STATE, USA (Or, A YOUTUBE CHANNEL RECOMMENDATION)

.
.
Loose DogGs & DogGettes ~
.
This is just a quickie with a couple of short videos I want to share with y'all.
.
One of the YouTube channels I subscribe to and most frequently visit is HighImpactFlix. Definitely one of my very favorites! I don't particularly care for the name, which sounds like a place you'd go to watch bonehead Action movies with lots of car explosions, ridiculous martial arts nonsense, massive shootouts and CGI overkill.
.
In truth, this guy, who is obviously educated and articulate, posts a lot of Social Commentary videos. Not all but many of them address the serious problem we have today in America of a militarized Police State actually enforced by police officers, who have become a de facto standing army for The Wizards Behind The Curtain. Our Constitutional rights are being trampled by an army in blue operating under the pretense of protecting us. (Have you ever read the Fourth Amendment? Are you familiar with our Founding Fathers' view of a "standing army"? Do you know anything about the history of police departments? Do you really think the police officer is your friend?)
.
In the ten years of Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends' existence, I have written and posted several blog bits about Law Enforcement. It's a subject I have some personal, first-hand knowledge of, having been involved in the Police Explorer program for a few years in my teens and actually having been employed by a police department to work in its Property Room. I have known and socialized with a good number of police officers. I have seen them in professional situations and have had many casual conversations with them, so I have a bit more "insider" knowledge than the average person does.
.
Being the strict Constitutionalist that I am, this militarized Police State that America is quickly becoming with the advances in technology, and police departments large and small operating with no citizenry oversight to speak of, concerns me greatly. And it's no secret that I am no fan of LEOs in general. 
.
Below are just two of MANY very good videos I've found at HighImpactFlix that address this disturbing topic and trend. These are short, so please take the time to watch and think about them.
.
I would also urge you to subscribe to the HighImpactFlix channel at YouTube. So far, I have only ever seen one video posted there that I disagree with, and that's a pretty impressive track record because, as you probably know, I'm a very "disagreeable" person. 

There is another cop-citizen video I intend to post here at Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends before too long, but I figured I would sort of ease you into the topic by first setting the stage with these two introductory videos above. Feel free to comment below...
