On this fine New Year’s Eve-Eve… I find myself parsing the Internets Pipes (handcrafted with love by the AlGoreBot, and soldered into place by Tim Berners-Lee) digging up stuff about the candidates.
One bit of sport I’ ve taken to lately is poking my nose into known fiery pits of the Ron Paul rƎVO⅃ution, where I can learn how to cut and paste the strange Unicode-16 characters used to make the reversed “LOVE” anagram so cleverly hidden there by the Ronulans.
Another thing that I have found amusing is to see what threshold (especially on YouTube) triggers a mass response (sort of the internet equivalent to poking an ant colony or tossing stones at a bee hive) …
… of course, saying “Ron Paul sucks” will do the trick all too easily… so the challenge is to actually bait them with something that pokes their world view, like the dogma of “Blame America First” that pervades their thinking with things like the Truther 9-11 conspiracy, or even better, challenging the notion that the CFR really isn’t out to make a North American Union.
Now, I’ll admit that behind every conspiracy theory there usually is a *very small* grain of truth, such as the possibility that among a few folks who belong to the CFR might be a few folks who would be very comfortable with seeing America’s influence in world affairs greatly diminished.
Either way, it makes for an entertaining way to kill some time, and it keeps my YouTube box full of Ronulan hate-mail which is fun to laugh at.
DISCLAIMER: While most of Ron Paul’s most ardent supporters seem to missing a few sandwiches from their collective picnic basket… there are surely a few folks who do defend Paul’s bizarre brand of paleoconservatism with both pluck and wit, and without an excessive amount of drooling.
When I meet one, I’ll be sure to post about it here.
