    It’s for entertainment purposes only. I say this because in this new era some of these headlines are suddenly plausible.

    I thought this one was real; kind of an “Onion” in reverse just to see if we were paying attention.

    This is a good one:

    “Smartmatic, a U.K.-based voting technology company with deep ties to George Soros, has control over voting machines in 16 states including battleground zones like Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Virginia.”

    It was so funny to me to see how many stories and headlines used the word “grope” during Bill Clinton’s administration. I think it was a lot of Freudian slips.

    Great post. I wish they weren’t so plausible. :)

    So it wasn’t meant to suggest we would have been better off with no news than all the garbage we’ve heard this year?
