Because this childlike assertion is nowhere acceptable for modern discourse, an entire list is constructed to prop it up, and mantras are repeated ad nauseam to establish a faux legitimacy.

** MAGA – In the lexicon of the permanent administrative state in Washington DC, this is a “devil word” representing (or constituting) a ubiquitous enemy. This enemy is defined only because it opposes the totalist orthodoxy.

** Thank god for plumbers who are willing to go behind their corporate bosses’ backs, “Yeah, don’t pay the 150 dollar emergency fee, just gimme 40 bucks under the table; also, don’t buy a water heater from us, my boss will charge you 800 bucks. Go to Lowe’s and ask for a Scratch n’ Dent. They’ll give you for like 200 bucks. Call me tomorrow on Saturday, and I can install it in an hour.”
