Mesodiplosis

Mesodiplosis (mes-o-dip-lo’-sis): Repetition of the same word or words in the middle of successive sentences.

I can’t believe how weird things are getting. I used to say how weird things were. Now, I’m up to my neck in weird things and they are freaking me out. I think Washington, DC is where the weird things are coming from. Every day our President proffers some kind of strange idea or posits some kind of creepy conspiracy theory–like Nancy Pelosi is a Chinese spy working with Hilary Clinton to sterilize every man on the planet, with the exception of a handful of Übermensch to enable the continuation of the species. Guess who is one of the Übermensch? Yup: Donald J. Trump. This is how he knows about the conspiracy: he has gotten several messages from Pelosi on his phone offering him the position of Chief Inseminator, which he claims to have refused because he can make more money, and get as much action, being President of the United States.

Weird enough?

There’s no time like the future! There’s no time like the past! There’s no time like the right time & the right time is now! Let’s go visit the Russians! I think we can learn a lot from them about things like stealing, money laundering and bribery! Also, after dealing with the Russians, you know Dad can tell us a thing or two about money laundering too. In fact, he may be better at it than they are! Come on Donny, let’s catch a cab over to the consulate!

It looks like the Libertarian candidate  is racking up the percentage points in recent polls. As fas as I can see the Libertarian candidate has over 20% of the vote. If that’s right, the Libertarian candidate is making a significant dent in Trump’s and Clinton’s percentages.

A viable third-part candidate!

Wow!

Just like the other Presidential candidates, Gary Johnson’s supporters will have to nominate him at the Libertarian Party’s national convention & everybody’ll be decked out in goofy election paraphernalia.

The Libertarians’ silly hats will say: “Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom.”  I wonder if the Libertarians’ hats will ‘trump’ “Make America Great Again” hats?

(By the way, Hilary’s hats don’t have a chance. “Stronger Together” sounds like a gang slogan: “The Outlaws: Stronger Together”)

I heard my conscience calling and it told me to apologize. I listened to my conscience calling and I apologized.

I’m glad I got the “My Conscience Calling” app for my iPhone. It’s free and it has repeatedly settled my troubled soul.

The only problem with the app itself  is that before “My Conscience Calling” calls, you’ve got to text “My Conscience Calling” (622) and leave a TWEET-sized message explaining your vexation. But that’s a minor hassle because in under 30 seconds “My Conscience Calling” texts you back with an answer! The ring tone sounds like thunder and the iPhone flashes on and off like lightening.

It’s like having the Wizard of Oz in your pocket!

No more sleepless nights spent anguishing!

Flush the Lunesta!

Spit out the ZZZQuil!

When I hear my conscience calling, I know everything’s going to be all right!

We didn’t win today, and I’m not going to give up. Today, we haven’t achieved our highest hopes, and I’m not going to feel disheartened. I am not the winner today, and I’m not going to be the loser tomorrow. It isn’t over yet.  There’s a long way to go. We will prevail. We will win.
