Just ‘Cause You Can

Those of you that have read my posts know I have a thing about commercials. There is one commercial that shows “people” who are human only from the waist up. Below the waist, they are a motorcycle.

I don’t find it particularly annoying. They don’t play it too often and there is nothing about it that I find that objectionable. However, like so many commercials, I fail to see their point. I can’t even remember what they are advertising.

The one aspect of it that I find confusing is “Why?” It would seem they have some special FX people who know how to make the impossible appear commonplace. As observers, we are supposed to believe these are special beings, who should possibly deserve special respect. I have no idea why or why we should buy what the advertise.

To me, it would appear the only reason for creating the illusion is because they can. This brings the question to mind. Just because we can do something, does that mean we should? Does that make it the intelligent thing to do?

It would seem to me that many people do things not of necessity, but just ’cause they can. Look at what the democrats did during the last Supreme Court nominations. They accomplished nothing. Indeed, they might have even helped the Republicans elect two more senators. If it wasn’t for a quirk in timing, they would have two less and the republicans would have two more. (Does anyone really believe that Alabama would have elected a democrat if they had a strong republican in the run? Does anyone really think the character will be re-elected this year?)

Now there is another nominee for the the court and it looks like the democrats will make idiots out of themselves again. I don’t know why. I guess it is just ’cause they can.

And by the way, the main line media will be right in their helping them.
