Yet Another YT Spoof Which Turned Out to be Eerily Prophetic in 2020

April 24, 2020 9 comments

I am sure more that more than a few of you have seen the 2006 movie ‘Idiocracy‘. In fact, when Trump was elected in 2016, more than a few ‘blue checks’ on Twitter pointed out the functional similarity between the character of President Camacho from that movie and Trump. Anyway, the actor who played that character (Terry Crews) did a few more YouTube spoof clips. One of them, from about a year and half ago, is proving to be scarily (in unintentionally) accurate.

In this clip, the character of President Camacho promises to end poverty and inequality in USA by printing money and giving a million dollars to each person- since (paraphrasing it) “people don’t need jobs, they need money”. His plan involves making the federal reserve print money and give it directly to people rather than pass it through banks or businesses. While both LIEbrals and CONservatives might find this idea horrifying, it makes total sense (Modern Monetary Theory) and might be the only way to save the economy in aftermath of shutdown due to COVID-19.

YT Clips about Problems with Current Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

March 28, 2020 27 comments

Here are a couple of interesting YouTube clips about the absolute inadequacy, and highly magical thinking underlying, current official responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the first clip, Kim Iversen, correctly makes the case that the virus in question is already so well distributed in global human population that it is impossible to contain it without an effective vaccine- which won’t be available for at least a few months or a year. Her point is that you just cannot shutdown entire countries without very serious, and far worse, collateral damage to the lives of everybody else and the economy. It seems she got a lot of flack from virtue-displaying dumbfucks aka modern western nosy leftists aka proto-SJWs for pointing out the obvious.

Clip #1: Is THIS Really Our Strategy?

The second clip is about whether we should do a cost-benefit analysis for measures to control this pandemic, especially given its rather low mortality (at the population level). She correctly points out the hospitals and doctors who spend all their time on trying to help COVID-19 patients are doing so by neglecting others with much worse illness- from heart attacks and strokes to cancers. She also points out that short of shutting down the world economy till we develop a vaccine is a really bad idea with even infinitely worse consequences. Similarly the bullshit idea known as “social distancing” does not help in the long term- and, in fact, might make acquisition of herd immunity much harder. Some of you might like it, but she is correct. FYI- one of my degrees is in Microbiology and a lot of the stuff pushed by so called “experts” about controlling this pandemic has always sounded like a lot of wishful aka magical thinking to me.

A Very Clever Deepfake and Crosscut of ‘The Matrix’ and ‘Office Space’

February 20, 2020 3 comments

A couple of days ago, I came across a very clever deepfake and crosscut clip of two iconic movies from 1999- namely, ‘Office Space’ and ‘The Matrix’. Curiously they were released about 5 weeks from each other- first one on February 19, 1999 and the second on March 31, 1999. The premise of this clip is as follows: What if Neo took the blue pill instead of the red pill?

What makes this clip amazing is the makers correctly point out that the main protagonists in both movies work as software developers in impersonal corporations. Even their cubicles looks very similar and both are surrounded by other cubicles filled with mostly irritating coworkers. The jokes in this YouTube clip are amazingly meta, and correctly describe the blue pill mindset.

The Only Accurate Comedy Sketch on SNL Within the Past Three Years

November 28, 2019 8 comments

In my opinion, SNL has always been the most unfunny and LIEbralism-friendly “comedy” program on network TV by a long shot. If you don’t believe me, have a look at any random YT clip from the Mad TV sketch show (1995-2009). Here are a few examples.. Clip # 1- Wizard of Oz Parody, Clip # 2- Sound of Music Parody, Clip # 3- Gone with the Wind Parody, Clip # 4- Lesbian Coffee house Skit, Clip # 5- Dr. Kylie talking about breast implants and Clip # 6- Cooking for One. To make a long story short, Mad Tv was, by far, the better late-night comedy sketch show. SNL in contrast, especially over part three years, has provided the most unintentionally sad commentary on the state of the LIEbral mind- if that is what you call it. Do you remember how every single show over past 2-3 years has been about Mueller arresting Trump and each new and ineffectual brainfart emanating from the LIEbral elite.

Well.. there was one exception. See.. the week after Trump was elected on Nov 8, 2016, they did put out what was probably their only insightful sketch over the past three years. Maybe this had something to do with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock being involved with that particular episode. It is one of the most insightful crtiques of white LIEbrals living in coastal cities. Enjoy!

A Recent Clip of Senator Kennedy talking about Jeffrey Epstein’s Death

November 21, 2019 4 comments

I came across this interesting clip, from two days ago, of Senator Kennedy (R-LA) at a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing. The punchline is: “Christmas ornaments, drywall and Jeffrey Epstein – name three things that don’t hang themselves”. And yes.. the clip is on the YT channel of C-SPAN. I am sure that many of you are eager to express your thoughts on this topic.

Here are some of my older posts about this specific topic and Jeffrey Epstein in general.

New Investigation of Jeffrey Epstein is More Problematic for Democrats (after he was rearrested).

Some Thoughts on Jeffrey Epstein’s Interactions with Teenage Girls (after he was jailed).

Initial Thoughts on Jeffrey Epstein’s Suicide While Under Suicide Watch (after his “suicide”).

George Carlin on Environmentalism and Anodyne Corporate Language

November 2, 2019 3 comments

Here are two interesting YT clips by the well-known, and now deceased comedian, George Carlin. While the video quality is pretty mediocre by current standards, the material is extremely good. In the first one he talks about how environmentalism is just a contemporary manifestation of anthropocentric delusions, aka humans wanting to believe that the world exists for them and having some outsize influence on it. In the second one, he goes after how anodyne corporate language and lies has permeated all walks of life in USA.

Interesting YouTube Channel: Renegade Cut

September 29, 2019 11 comments

A few months ago, I came across yet another interesting channel, known as Renegade Cut, which uses movies and TV shows to analyse philosophical ideas and ideologies. While I don’t agree with everything on that channel, some of the content makes sense and is thought-provoking. Here are two clips which many of you might find particularly interesting.

Clip #1: Saturday Neoliberalism This one uses short clips from SNL (the “comedy” show) over multiple decades to show how all of the so-called “subversive” comedy in neoliberal countries such as USA was, and is, always about commercial considerations than being truly subversive or standing up to power and money. It explains why shows such as SNL loved HRC in 2016 while dumping on Bernie and has hated Trump since his election. The explanation also holds for all those other “celebrities” who expose supposedly LIEbral causes.

Clip #2: Frank Grimes – The Cult of Work The second one uses the famous character of Frank Grimes in “The Simpsons’ to show how CONservatives view the world around them. It provides some very interesting insight into why those losers fetishize “work” and who they scapegoat for everything wrong with the world. To make a long story short, CONservatives willingly suffer from multiple delusions including the one where they will all attain salvation, also known as becoming rich.There is a reason, I have always found CONservatives a bit more detestable than LIEbrals.
