That was the aliens.

Exactly, they were time traveling pan-galactic Marxists.

The Kennedys were also time traveling aliens. Interestingly enough, every Kennedy was in fact part of a composite being, kind of like how separate cypress trees are part of the same single organism. Their home world of New Clam Chowder is overrun with white toothed, perfectly coiffed politician types, and their expansion into alien reaches of the galaxy was largely due to their desire to make speeches.

Blue is the best color there is. And that’s a fact.

Let's look at some countervailing facts.

Blue is a hononym with blew (they blew their nose), while Red is a hononym with read (the misguided blue supporters read this post).

It is clear that nothing truly great comes about because something blew anything (up, out, what have), but the fount of all knowledge flows from what is read.

False. Brandon Sanderson reigns supreme in every last one.

Except they could not have been time traveling.  That is impossible.

Just what you'd expect a prisoner of a fixed timeline to say. In your world, the sequence of events seems set because you can't transition to the parallel worlds of alternate history.

There's a parallel world where the Kennedy assassinations never took place, and by 2258 the earth is overrun with Kennedys. Just a fact man.

You aren’t accounting for the fact, however, that if Kennedy lived (and subsequently became the immortal dictator of the US by the powers of the Roosevelts), Putin would have managed to kill him and the earth would in fact be overrun by Putins.

This is clearly fake news, I posit that Truthless of Shinovar and Frustration are deep fakes, a sign that Russia has been trying to influence the 17th shard. Putin's favorite cosmere story is 6th of the Dusk, and there has been a growing KGB presence on this site to sway more Sanderson fans to this position in order to have Brandon Sanderson write novels about tough dudes that like to not wear shirts.

My father in law just informed me that YouTube, Twitter and Facebook merged, so I looked up vaccinations on the new site, You Twit Face, and to my horror I discovered vaccinations cause baldness, ennui, and cravings for sardines!

No you're not. Sticks can't type.

Fact:

All pursuits are meaningless because in the timescale of the cosmos all actions are as meaningless as the fart of a gnat.

In the long run everything is meaningless, in the eyes of the universe all efforts are worthless. But... we don't see things through the eyes of the universe. We see them through our own eyes, through a very human perspective. Maybe my life is just a dim blip in the grand scale of everything, but to me, that blip literally feels like it takes a lifetime to pass. When I make a sandwich, I'm not making a sandwich for the universe, I'm making it for myself. When I eat that sandwich, it's not to take part in the incomprehensibly massive story that is reality, it's because I'm hungry. When I finish eating that sandwich, the universe hasn't changed much because of it, but I am no longer hungry, and I am satisfied. And that's good enough. 

And who knows, maybe that fart was a very, very important moment for that gnat. 

 

Fact:

Dinner should have at least thing that tastes salty or savoury in order to be fulfilling.

Good points, the big bang was actually the first attempt to make a sandwhich and as you know it went horribly wrong.

You have completely ignored the most important tastebud, that which senses umami. 

Fact:

The human race was created to figure out how to cultivate and grow items with umami flavor (seaweed, mushrooms, etc).

But umami is the taste of savouriness!

Can't argue with a fact.

Fact:

There is a God, and God created man in order for man to selectively breed wolves/jackals/dingoes to become dogs.

The teleological principle is perfectly clear, God spelled backwards is dog. This is the alpha and the omega.

"Who's fulfilling God's plan? This good boy is, give that good boy a biscuit."

God watches and is content. All dogs go to heaven, some people do too.

Yes, sardines, anchovies and smoked oysters.

Fact:

Air is a commodity and should be bottled and sold like water.  Lex Luther, err Bezos should be in control of the world's air supply (and I'm only tangentially referring to the band).

This is a bad idea. Why? Because it's the plot of the Lorax movie. And that movie reaaaally went off the rails. Plus it was kinda the reason for the apocalypse. I'm pretty sure that, like, most of the population died. It's pretty tragic if you think about it too hard. The book was far superior, and so we should stick to preserving truffula trees and careful monitoring of thneed production. Also how the heck would you survive on a bottle's worth of air? More is gonna end up being given to your neighbors than your lungs. I suppose I shouldn't question the logic of a film based off of a kid's book comprised mostly of rhyming gibberish and colorful squiggles.

Gungans make better vice presidents. Dan Quayle was a Gungan, Gerald Ford was a Gungan, and even Aaron Burr was a Gungan.

The ticket should be Biden Jar Jar 2020.
