SOUNDS OF SILENCE!

Many decades ago, Simon and Garfunkel wrote a thoughtful piece of music that had a nice tune to it.  It really caught on for quite a while.  I remember I was in Nam at the time just after it came out.  It seemed just about everywhere I went, someone was playing the song or soon would be.

I was reminded of it lately.  I also had a thought about the doomsday preppers.  These people prepare sanctuaries for the doomsday they expect.  So, when the doomsday arrives, they will hide in their shelters in hopes that, after a few months or years they can return to a safe world.

I guess that Biden is a doomsday prepper, of a type.  His doomsday occurred when the computer of his son turned up with all the emails and all the photos.  Suddenly, he has rushed to his shelter and there he will hide, as much as he can, until it is safe to return.  It is even conceivable that he will find a convenient excuse to avoid the debate.  I don’t know.

But there is sound of silence.  He has said little or nothing about the computer or the hard drive.  He has decided to put a lid on it and he ain’t talking to nobody about it, regardless.

It is also the sound of silence from the media.  They will say nothing about the computer either, other than to repeat the old “Russia, Russia, Russia thing.”  I don’t think it will work this time.  The sound of silence is so loud it cannot be ignored.

Finally, there is the sound of silence from anyone who decides to twit about it.  The very instant that someone tries to tweet on the subject, they are silenced.  Hence, it is a sound of silence.

Personally, I don’t have any accounts with any of the social media.  It serves me no purpose.  Besides, I don’t much like people selecting what I can say.  It rather has something to do with the 1st Amendment.  This is as close as I get to any such of an account.  I suspect I give up many possible followers, but I write what I want.  Maybe it is time for other conservatives to do the same.  Maybe it is time for us to send a message to the social media.  If they lose a few accounts, they just might start to understand.

Then again, we all know better.  They all hate the president too much.

Oh yes, there is one more sound of silence.  Hardly anyone telling the world about all the good that our president has done.  I guess that is why he has to toot his own horn.  And of course, you will not find President Trump cowering in some cellar hoping against hope that no one will ask that question to which there is any good answer.

All the Requirements

It would appear that Kamala Harris has all the requirements that Biden was looking for to be his running mate.  She is female, Black, and she is willing to toe the dummycrat line, even if she doesn’t believe in it.

It does bring up the question.  Has she decided to toe the line because it was what she believes or because she wants the job?  The again, maybe someone made her an offer… like the presidency after Biden’s first term.

On the other hand, why wait for him to complete the first term.  It seems to me as if I remember an amendment that allows a president to be removed from office if he is unfit.  Seems to me that they might have tried to use it on the current POTUS.

Considering Biden’s mind, it ought not be difficult to prove him unfit.  Then she can just shuffle into the White House, just as she originally intended.

Either way, she just might be thinking ahead.  Everyone knows it is easier for a current present to be reelected.  It would certainly give her a leg up in 2024.  Her primary would very likely go much smoother.

I don’t have any inside track on the matter.  Just, so to speak, thinking aloud.  Still, if Biden were to be elected, it might be nice to see how things unfold once he takes the oath of office.  Meanwhile, during the time between when he takes office and when she takes over, it would give a new meaning to a driver-less car.

The Scenario

I rather like the term Scenario.  The first time I heard it was when I watched the TV show, The Greatest American Hero.  Maybe this is not the most accurate place to use the word but, as I said, I like it.

This is what I suspect will be the scenario.  It might not be planned this way.  I am pretty sure no one has written it down.  However, I suspect that the plan is forming in the minds of some very influential people.

Sometime, in the next month or two, a group of men, or women, will approach Bidden with a plan.  Somehow he will become disabled.  Maybe he will lose his voice or maybe he will admit to hoof and mouth disease.  At any rate, he will be convinced that it is time for him to withdraw from the presidential race.  Then, of course, conveniently, they will have someone step in from the sidelines to take over for him.

You might wonder where I get the idea.  I wonder how in the world they can let him continue.  One debate and Biden will be so confused he won’t know what state he is in, or what office he is running for.  (Wait a minute.  I guess that already happened.)

So, before the first debate, they will need to replace him.  My only question at this point is who will replace him?  Will it be Hillary?  Maybe it will be Bernie.  I’m not sure, but I think both of them are too old.  Just who do they have waiting to step in?

I suppose Obama’s wife might step in, but I don’t think she wants too.  Even so, they might try to talk her into it but for one thing.  She would never stand up to the scrutiny.  Not only would she have to answer for Obama’s lies but also for her own dumb ideas.  I am certain that they would lose the votes of almost all those working in school cafeterias.  Also, some of those students forced to eat that healthy food will be of voting age now.  Do you really think she will get their vote?

Regardless of who they decide to put in in Biden’s place, they do have some obstacles to deal with.  First, they might have some problems getting Biden to cooperate.  He might throw a fit.  He might demand a fortune or two.  Then again, he just might dig in and refuse.  If he does that, then what will they do?

However they manage to talk him out of it, they will have to talk the democrats into it.  Besides, Bernie will likely pitch a fit.  He will decide it’s his turn.  Besides, he came in second.  He ought to get the nod.

I suppose, to some degree, there will be others who believe they should be the ones to rise to throne.  Some might have a small reason or two.

The thing is.  The problem is.  They just don’t have anyone waiting in the wings that can beat President Trump and they know it.

Maybe instead of calling this The Scenario, I should have called it The Conundrum.
