I’ve been evaluating myself in light of the “reputation” I am getting that says I am sarcastic.  Now, sarcasm is not nice.  It’s purpose is to put down others and raise myself up.  If that were my purpose, I would be in a bovine’s heaven with all the red meat in Washington!  Now, see I did it.  😀 

When I said Biden chose Kamala as his VP, because that was his insurance plan against being removed as President, it was satire because I think it is funny and it does sound much better than saying it was a stupid thing to do.  😀 

Sarcasm or satire?  I call my statement satire.  There is safety in satire.  “Satire is a form of expression that utilizes humor to expose human failings and corruptions,” says someone on google with whom I agree. 

But I am sarcastic about the political issue of climate control!  “Oh, yes, let us throw some money at the problem.  We are Democrats.  There is nothing more money can’t solve!”  I am putting down the issue, however, not people.  If I named the King of Climate and pointed out the mint of money he has made off this issue, I would likely roll right over into sarcasm.  T’woud be so easy.  😀   Jesus told us however, not to call our brother a fool, so I’m stopping right no…..

So I laughed a couple hours ago about the “Green” movement cutting down mountains of trees that are used in the process of making windmill energy  That was because of the irony of the whole situation.  Another interesting word, “irony” or “ironic”. 

Dear Bloggers and other readers, please tell folks I am a great satirist.  I’ll try to live up to the title. 

Oh, before I really go, I want to point you to a great use of sarcasm by none other than God, himself.  Micah 1:8.  God is upset that the folks would offer him  polluted sacrificial lambs .  He said, “Try offering that to your Governor.”  I love that.  And I think it is sarcastic.  I’ll give God room to roam there if He would like to do so. 

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. If we point out hypocrisy either sarcastically, satirically, or ironically, seems we laugh in the exact same way. Who is to know? lol

    You are not sacastic. You are a stitch and I think that’s much more fun than being satirically correct/
