You Know Your Democracy is Teetering When...


Friends, in the most shocking turn of events at a White House Easter egg roll since Bill Clinton's torrid affair with an intern in a bunny suit back in '93, Joe Biden was today politely but firmly dissuaded from interacting with the public (no one wants that!) by the Easter Bunny (or was it by a Secret Service agent pretending to be a bunny?).  I hasten to add that uncomfortable situations like these could be easily avoided if only Sleepy Joe was muzzled before all public events.  In the meantime, here's hoping that the quick-thinking bunny in question gets hazard pay...


  1. Nick,

    Let me take issue with the word "democracy" if I may. In Leftist terms a democracy is usually a People's Democracy, which is actually what we are living in now, as run by a junta of fools. What we should have is a Constitutional Republic. So what we do have now IS a Democracy, and it is not "teetering". Sorry, but this is the way I see it.

  2. Nick,

    Let me amend/rephrase my previous comment by saying that what we actually live in is a technocracy controlled by a relatively small technical elite at the top. It's a Franz Kafka type society with smart phones, and getting very Orwellian by the day. I also might add that the very same people who actually run things are power brokers who don't dream about power, because they already have it. Frankly, it's all very dehumanizing, and scary. In reality, it has been this way for some time, just more apparent now.

  3. Dr. Waddy from Jack: The grotesquerie of this "nice" man in an executive setting far beyond his ken, would be of piteous spectacle except that he retains such incalculable power! Those totalitarians who do move his half perceptive will are of existential threat to the real America and their continued power rests first, in the American electorate this November but also in their thereon continued power through their marionette Biden! We must see 2022-24 as as an exceedingly fortuitous opening to our crushing defeat of the sneering, leering, hate imbued, "American" left and its children.

  4. Dr. Waddy from Jack: To do so we must make maximum use of the increasingly ridiculous reality of this overmatched man! But we must HOPE against any international catastrophe propelling him into military command against Russia! That the "American" left which controls him would hazard this? I do not doubt!

  5. Ray, I don't disagree. In my view, Western "democracy" has always been somewhat mythical, filtered as it is through constitutionalism, representative structures, industrial capitalism, degenerate popular culture, media syndicates, you name it... Technocracy, huh? There's some of that, yes, but I'm not sure the technical experts, per se, are the ones running the show -- it's the stuffed shirts who, say, sit on Twitter's board... So, yes: we may well be more of an oligarchy than a democracy. And I don't condemn oligarchy out of hand, but I do condemn the particular set of oligarchs who rule us now. They're utterly unfit to wield power, in my view.

    Jack, I agree: the Left does pose an "existential threat" to the "real America", and I don't think it's hyperbole to suggest that victory in 2022 and 2024 would be necessary to stave off the collapse of America as we know it. I hasten to add: victory in the next two elections is necessary to save America, but not sufficient...

    As dangerous as Biden is, he is also, as you suggest, a friend to the right in one important sense: he's an albatross to his own confederates, who may well bring the Left crashing down in a heap. Let's hope so, anyway!

  6. I agree Ray. I can't think of much to say, so I will leave it at that.
