Not only is it allowed, sometimes it’s necessary.
Some people call it faith.
Pig cut the cable and is no longer barraged with 300+ channels of gloom and doom.
I wish it was allowed, these days you need any kind of optimism
Pig’s having a good time—maybe I’ll follow his example.
It’s actually required to be considered for a job in the trump administration. Can’t have any ‘Gloomy-Gus’ types wandering around the White House.
Sometimes not making sense makes the most sense of all.
In China, they only show you the good news on the news. No thanks. I’d rather see bad news spewing propaganda peddling on TV in a free world country.
Pig is happy that people spread fake news that eating pigs increases infection chances from a virus.
Say Rat & Goat who are outside without masks!
Rat would tell him that all optimism is stupid. He may have a point, all things considered.
Pig just found out he does not have the “Swine Flu”!
Pig there is nothing wrong with be “Drunk” on life ! … Croc Power !
Stupid optimism ist way better than being depressed. In the end your mood doesn’t make a difference on the things that are. But it makes a huge difference in the things you can achieve.
Rejoice in the Lord, always, and again I say rejoice! Philippians 4:4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzyckxqXoZ4
Fortunately, Pig does not listen to the news. That’s how he can indulge in Stupid Optimism and enjoy life more than Goat and Rat combined….
Emphasis on “Stupid”, but I would go so far as to call it false hope.
I’m afraid pig is breaking the law. That is NOT allowed.
Someone said: “Even that won’t work. There is NO way any of us can avoid the politics today. In one way or another, we’re all its victims!” To which my response is, “Not if I ignore y ou.”
It is allowed. But society will never forgive him for that.
it is most definitely allowed!
You go Pig!
Not according to the idiots at fake news inc.
In today’s world, a pessimist is a realist. An optimist just isn’t paying attention.
Break into song “Always look on the bright side of life…”
It buoys up the entire right-of-center political spectrum in the USA.
I’m a happier person than most because I never listen to the news. Why would I want to hear the spin some network wants to put on everyday events? There are a lot of better ways to find out what is happening in the world.
Every once in a while the world needs to break out in spontaneous joy and unbridled enthusiasm.
not anymore – now it’s moral outrage or castigation
Stick with it Pig! Staying Optimistic helps me fight off the depression from watching the News.
Stop watching the news all the time. Live your life.
All about mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. Go, Pig! :D
WE. NEED. MORE. CROCS.
Sounds a lot like my now deceased dear Aunt. Geez I miss her.
“There is no sadder sight than a young pessimist, except an old optimist.” Mark Twain’s Notebook; 1902-1903.
“I’ve often been called a pessimist, but I’m not. I’m an optimist who has not arrived.” Attributed to Mark Twain.
Ignorance is really bliss
Y’ all do remember that we elected him, right? Had we taken care of the people before that, he wouldn’t have stood a chance. Perhaps after 4 years of an object lesson on what happens when there is a lack of compassion in the world, we will choose wisely this time?
‘Stupid optimism’ explains a lot of people now, and not just the president and his supporters.
Anything not expressly forbidden is mandatory
It’s America, man! Everything’s allowed.
If stupid optimism gets you through the day without hurting anyone else, I’m all for it.
Yep, that’s the best kind to get us to, or beyond, the 80-year limit.
I like pig’s attitude !! We’ll ALL be gibbering idiots if this lasts much longer !!! Lol
Damn right it’s allowed! Joe Biden is basing his entire campaign on it.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Apparently so, if you feel up to announcing that the pandemic is on the run, when “run” turns out to mean an exponentially increasing infection rate.
I don’t watch the news either 1) Its boring 2) I hate politics 3) It feels futile to get upset about things out of your control you should instead focus on what you can control
My (conservative, reformed protestant) parents were very down on acting happy without a very good reason. One of many things that helped me decide to move far away upon graduation from college.
It’s allowed, but paradoxically, the people who are stupidly optimistic shouldn’t be, and the people who aren’t, need to try to be.
