Are you as befuddled as we were after the most recent Democratic debates? Remember: silly proposals, wrong-headed claims, and shouting out-of-turn to vie for attention. It reminded me of a preschool teacher trying to corral a group of unruly four-year-olds. It defied explanation. But WAIT! We remembered the words of renowned physicist Albert Einstein, who taught us that understanding comes not from knowing the answers, but rather from knowing the questions to ask:
“Genius isn’t about knowing everything; it’s about knowing what questions to ask?”
So, in that we here at HardWired News are undisputed geniuses, we came up with a few questions to help us understand just what the hell went on:
If illegal aliens are undocumented immigrants, why aren’t bank robbers just making an undocumented withdrawal?
If giving every adult $1000 a month is a good thing, why isn’t giving them all $1 million a month a thousand time better?
If giving people benefits without raising taxes works, why wouldn’t giving poker players (who anteed $10 for ten chips) ten more chips make each player twice as well off?
If people who sneak into our country to get our benefits are victims deserving asylum, why aren’t home invaders entitled to take the stuff and be immediately set free?
If illegal aliens deserve American health care benefits, why not just provide it to them in their home countries so they don’t have to make the trip?
If shouting down your opposition is the way to get noticed and win, why doesn’t ANTIFA run everything?
When our current political hopefuls run out of whacko things to give away in return for votes, what will the next generation of politicos give away?
If Wall Street is the cause of all our problems, why not banish them all to concentration camps like Hitler did with his problem causers?
If using other people’s money to give free stuff away in exchange for votes is a good thing, why don’t candidates take each other’s money and buy the votes of their opponents’ supporters?
If the definition of insanity is using the same failed strategy and expecting different results, why aren’t proponents of socialism adjudicated insane?
We don’t have all the answers to these questions just now (actually we do), but we’re still geniuses for asking them. Right?
And you, Dear Reader? We’re pretty sure you have answers of your own (you’re free to post them here). Good luck!
Disclaimer: Einstein never really said that—we made it up (they’re still damn good questions)
