Smart Philosophers

Cable network news is all the rage today.
The Fourth Branch of U.S. government is a free press.
I'm impressed. Much the way a finely pressed shirt
resembles linen with suppressed edges. Edges don't lie.
The rational world is defined by edges.
Smart philosophers hedge their bet. Deuces wild!

It's mystifying why Trumpism doesn't do the same.

Facts are facts. There are no alternative
facts. Bear in mind figures. They are what they are
more or less. Slaves were slaves, immigrants are
immigrants. Neither are they like two peas in a pod.
If only the earth were flat. Maybe then there'd be
an alternative fact. Maybe. Just maybe.
