Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 16, 2017

Twitter users pounced on Donald Trump Jr. Thursday for a tweet about the debate over net neutrality that featured a prominent typo and an apparent misconception about which president appointed the current chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. "I would pay good money to see all those people complaining about Obama's FCC chairman voting to repeal #NetNeutality (sic) actually explain it in detail," the president's eldest son tweeted. "I'd bet most hadn't heard of it before this week." In addition to misspelling neutrality, Trump Jr. was mistaken in referring to Chairman Ajit Pai as "Obama's FCC chairman." Although Pai was appointed to the commission by former president Barack Obama, it was President Trump who made him chairman during his first days in the White House.

Too bad for me, I don't accept payment in Rubles.

Snoofy, I learned a long time ago, either you side with the workingman, or the master.

There is no other way.

Both of us were trained to be managers...which puts us at a difficulty of thinking: Do I side with the labor or the management?

An ombudsman between both makes a very uneasy living.

Would Goatman know the mass of an electron was 9.10938356 × 10-31 kilograms?

Well, he could look that up.

I'm trying to think of a chemical/physical shibboleth that only a well-trained scientist would know.

OK: PV=nRT. The first equation taught in Physical Chemistry. In addition to that, you could use the Redlich-Kwong equation for the equation of state. en.wikipedia.org

Maybe I could amp my creds and say that the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics, Prof Stephen Hawking, is out of his mind, and not to be reckoned with.

Pivnert. That was tenth grade chemistry for me.
That was a funny teacher. He had the gullible majority of the class convinced chemical symbol Sn was an element called "Snibnium."

Yeah, but I'm not kidding.

What's a man like you doing among these weeds?

What do you want?

Who is your master, and for whom are you cutting-down these sheaves with your mighty scythe the oats?

For yourself, of for a higher power?

... "I would pay good money to see all those people complaining about Obama's FCC chairman voting to repeal #NetNeutality (sic) actually explain it in detail," ...

Why is it that the Trump administration seems to revel in, even celebrate, ignorance?

Is it unintentional, or is it just a clever tactical diversion to distract everyone as they pillage the middle class?

Picking on someone for a typo is called piling on. We should be better than that. Lord knows Junior has worse faults than being a bad speller. If his name wasn't Trump he'd be working out of a cubicle making cold calls for a crematorium.

"Why is it that the Trump administration seems to revel in, even celebrate, ignorance?"

Because they judge other people by their own standards, which aren't very high.

Maybe for a change of pace someone could turn Don Jr into a newt.

"What do you want?"

Same as you, I reckon.

One reason I come here is hoping to find out what goes on in the minds of people who see the world vastly different from me.

It's a good question though.

Interesting dichotomy.

Thy master was a member of SNCC. As was mine.

He taught me all there was to know about my people...white people.

From a black man's prospective...

I recognognize the words, and understand the language:

You've been taught by a government man. As have I.

The most important thing for the government to do is to keep the populace busy.

My mentor was a black man.

He had 25 patents in his name, and let me in on 13 of them.

Eventually, It came to the point that I realized, "I'm your servant, and you are my master."

After my father died, he told me, "You'll carry on the knowledge, like my son."

And, I am his scientific son.

Don't crawl on your belly like a lawyer, but, stand tall like a son of God.

As a scientist should.

Ahhh, I just farted. It's the simple things in life that make it worth living.

When I was a teen, I saw into the future: When I took care of the elderly, I could tell, that taking a dump was the crux of the day. I realized, one day, all this would be mine. One day, sooner than I thought, that sitting on the pot and striving to pass a stool, would be tantamount to having a sexual denoument. I figured, I'd better live now. Before taking a ---- made me want to get up in the morning.
