What do you want to be when you grow up?

I frequently remark, at least privately, on how different my life could be had I chosen this or that path instead of drifting along my current one (which suits me just fine) and I find I am now what I ever wanted to be, a writer who writes for people rather than machines (pretty equally …

To Have And Have Not

Look, I only say Casablanca is better to be polite. Pretty close and I like the underdog. Hmm… SNL- Slim is not anywhere near that desperate. She came out of no place and can vanish right back. She doesn’t need nothin’ from Harry, he’s just another Mark who happens to be in denial that he’s …

Aaron Burr

In the notorious election of 1800 Aaron Burr rose to the highest position of trust he would ever hold in the United States Government, Vice President, thwarted only by Thomas Jefferson in his aspirations. Publicly, Burr remained quiet, and refused to surrender the presidency to Jefferson, the great enemy of the Federalists. Rumors circulated that …

Ebola Again

It hasn’t really changed much. About 2 to 21 days after you’re exposed you basically decompose into a puddle of vomit, diarrhea, and goo from internal and external bleeding following fever, sore throat, muscular pain, rash, and headaches. It has a 50% fatality rate. So you would think people would be happy for whatever help …

Socialist Cat Fight!

Because that’s just what you want to hear about during CPac. First of all Socialism is not about Modern Monetary Theory and MMT is not about Socialism. Socialism is about how you spend State Resources and MMT is about what State Resources are. Unlimited except by your imagination incidentally, the same as any fiat money …

Eli Whitney And The Cotton Gin

Look, it’s not like the South didn’t always have Agricultural Slavery because they always did, originally in the Tobacco, Indigo, and Sugar Cane Trade. It’s equally useless to pretend that despite some exceptions the burden of this labor fell overwhelmingly on Kidnapped Black Africans and later by breeding their descendants like cattle. It is what …

A Dangerous Case

The problem with bringing Social Justice cases before this Supreme Court is the likelihood you’ll get a bad result, and therefore set a bad precedent that lower courts will follow and will be difficult to undo (see Dred Scott). In this particular case (actually 2 that are very similar- American Legion v. American Humanist Association …

Wag The Dog indeed. Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio has blown his big foreign policy initiative by walking away with a ‘No Deal Brexit’ from his summit in Hanoi, disappointing the most minimal of expectations of agreement to disagree. ‘Sometimes you have to walk’: Trump leaves summit empty-handed at tough point in presidency By Josh Dawsey …

The Benefit Of The Doubt

So my activist brother asked me, “Who’s that ranty guy in shirt sleeves?” Cody Johnston. “He’s really good.” Yeah, Some More News.

A Piece Of Resistance

Nobody likes the Vanity Project Penis Wall O’ Racism. Not even Republicans. GOP unloads border angst on Pence By BURGESS EVERETT, Politico 02/26/2019 Vice President Mike Pence faced a wall of resistance from Senate Republicans on Tuesday as he tried to sell President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration on the southern border, according to multiple …

Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio

I am jaded and cynical. He’s guilty, guilty, guilty you Morans and pretending that he isn’t is to live in the opiod orange haze that envelopes him. Pretty Poppies. Sooo tired Toto. No ‘new’ in news, just in 3D IMAX and whatever Dolby it is that includes the vibrating chairs. Like them vibrating chairs. Anyway, …

Bridgegate

The only things wrong with this is that Chris Christie is not in jail and I don’t think Baroni is being sincere in his regret. He only cares that he got caught. Bridgegate conspirator blames Christie’s ‘cult and culture’ ahead of prison sentence By RYAN HUTCHINS, Politico 02/26/2019 One of the conspirators behind the George …
