is putting lives at risk

But does it matter until it puts your Life or the Lives of Children at risk?

is not a joking matter

Or does fake news make you laugh until you learn others believe it and someone you know dies?

Is ‘Fake News’ an extension of the Children’s game of Pinning The Tale on the Donkey?  But one that has gone terribly AWRY?

It could explain Someone’s Monumental Lies in which every Lie he tells, it’s just Him pinning another Tail on our Donkey Asses?

‘fake news’ It’s still spreading like wildfire…

1.  Who is causing the Greatest degree of FAKE NEWS?

2.  Who is Spreading this?

3.  Why are they Creating or Spreading Fake News?

4.  Who Cares?

As a child, each of us were taught many nursery rhymes and a spin on ‘Liar, Liar, pants on Fire’ was spun from the 1810 Poem-

The Liar

by

William Blake

Deceiver, dissembler
Your trousers are alight
From what pole or gallows
Shall they dangle in the night?

When I asked of your career
Why did you have to kick my rear
With that stinking lie of thine
Proclaiming that you owned a mine?

When you asked to borrow my stallion
To visit a nearby-moored galleon
How could I ever know that you
Intended only to turn him into glue?

What red devil of mendacity
Grips your soul with such tenacity?
Will one you cruelly shower with lies
Put a pistol ball between your eyes?

What infernal serpent
Has lent you his forked tongue?
From what pit of foul deceit
Are all these whoppers sprung?

Deceiver, dissembler
Your trousers are alight
From what pole or gallows
Do they dangle in the night?

Friends, here where I live, I went into to get Donuts yesterday.  And there is a Wear a MASK Rule in Place in Texas.  And a Fine of $250 charged against the Business Owners if patrons don’t wear a Mask. 

And sure, anyone refusing to wear a Mask is a Ticket if you still refuse to wear one in Public.  And several in the Donut store didn’t have one on and the only one who did had his mask on had it pulled below his nose.  Mouth was covered, nose wasn’t.  Fake False Misinformation is greatly affecting a whole bunch of what people are doing.

These people are True Believers in Fake News?

Or is it something of a worsening underlying problem possibly far worse than the Pandemic? 

Yes, is it that or is it that they don’t care anymore because they are in the process of Giving-Up?  There is a point when people are just not caring any longer? At what point do we quit caring?  At what point do we start giving-up?  And if you’re ready to scream, does the List below represent you?  Why you’re ready to give-up too?

1.  A Divorce?

2.  Lost a Job?

3.  Lost a Home?

4.  Lost a Vehicle?

5.  A death from COVID-19?

6.  Protesting Images?

7.  Virus Spreading?

8.  Daily Bad News?

9.  Daily Talk Shows?

10.  Sitting for hours in Food Bank Line?

11.  Alcoholism?

12.  Drug Usage?

13.  Unable to pay the Bills?

14.  Trump?

Not a great List to look at, but it may be some of the reasons why people today turn to creating Fake News.

Why some live for an Alternate Reality? 

Why some turn to the Alternate side of Truth? 

Yes, why some live for their daily dose of False Truths?  For them, they enjoy sharing fake news because it makes them feel better?  

Misery Loves Company…

Truth?  What is it?  And do you even care anymore? 

It no longer continues as a Game of Spreading Fake News, but who can CREATE the Most Believable Fake News? 

Yes, which Fake News can catch a Donkey by the Tail?  The most donkeys who will believe it?  And yes, every one of us has been pinned with one of these ‘Fakeries’ completely swallowing that hook of untruth as if it were the utter Truth…only to be embarrassed when someone let us in on the Joke! 

But by then, how many others were caught?  How many others laughed at it as a joke or at you?  Yes, just like Pinning the Tail on the Donkey and the whole class laughed at us…so be careful on what you read and what you Re-Share cause it may come back at you in a worsening prank Post sent back to you and to your friends as well on maybe Facebook. And they Post to all your friends. 

See. “He be so Stupid!  She be so Stupid!”  Lol
