This sentence could be completed in a number of different ways. This is my blog however so I’m going to complete it like this:
The Sum of our collective ignorance can be defined like this:
- On Black History Month – “Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed.” – Donald Trump speaking in 2017 about a notable historical figure who is actually dead, and who has been dead for over one hundred years. I suppose one must ascribe Trump’s misuse of proper English to his “degree” from the ivy league’s?
- On Gun Rights – “You can look at what the Constitution says, which is what I do.” said Republican Senator JohnBarrasso of Wyoming after his vote to remove the restriction on gun purchases and ownership by individuals with severe mental impairments. I certainly feel safer knowing that highly unstable individuals are not permitted to use the banking system but damn it, they can get a gun! GO ‘MERICA!
- Lastly, something you’ve GOT to have if we are going to survive the next 4 years of this presidency. A New Wine Purse!
