The World Just Became A Better Place

A broadcaster acquaintance of mine used to say, and have on his old Website the maxim “A different world is possible”1. A variant form, related by a character in Carl Sagan’s sci-fi book and movie Contact — in response to an admission of unfairness — states a mind-numbing truism: “The world is what we make of it”. And now, the world is a better place. I know I will be called terrible ad hominin things for saying this.  And I don’t give a fuck.  But IMHO, the recent death of one of the most horrid and horrible humans to have ever...

Diary Entry, 2101.20: Inauguration Edition

Biden, Harris and the Hope for America  ||  Parler  ||  Questions about Rudy Giuliani ||  Movie Review: WONDER WOMAN 1984 ||  Movie Review: THE MIDNIGHT SKY || Media Review: The Mandalorian Biden, Harris and the Hope for America As of 11am today, Central time, America once again made me proud. With the inauguration of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr as the 46th President of the United States, I once again have hope for us, our country and even our planet. It will undoubtedly take the vast majority of the next 4 years to undo the damage done to our planet, our country,...

Ted Cruz Needs Our Help!

Dear Senator Cruz, Far too often, I’m sure, your constituents think of interactions with our government in terms of what government can do for them.  I’d like to reach across the aisle to offer something for you. Considering that your participation in the false Retrumplican narrative of a “Stolen Election” now leaves you with blood on your hands, I thought I’d do something nice.  Please consider using the enclosed bar of soap to help you wash said blood from your hands. Then, hopefully, in just a few years, we can collectively wash our hands of you. Sincerely, Your ever-helpful constituent, Paul...

Deplorable America

Let me make it clear here that I am NOT condemning in one broad stroke every Republican or even every single Trump supporter/voter.  ONLY those who participated in the attempted Trump-led insurrection on Jan 6 and those who support — even subsequently — the authoritarian-style coup attempt which (by my prediction) turned deadly over one of the biggest lies in American history, that Trump, who lost the 2020 election by over 7 million votes, actually won. Fuck you, Trump, for all the damage you have done to America and American democracy.  And if you supported the attempted violent insurrection at the...

‘They Are What They Say They Hate’

[this post is taken directly from https://thebulwark.com/they-are-what-they-say-they-hate/, used w.o.p., because sometimes others say better all you want to say . . .basically, unfortunately,  the entire fuckublican party has – by embracing trumpism and his baggage – become a worldwide embarrassment] Trump is a triggered loser who embodies every trait conservatives spent decades decrying. by TIM MILLER NOVEMBER 17, 2020 Donald Trump is a snowflake who cares only about his feelings not the facts. He’s a pampered millennial child who can’t handle losing and wants a participation trophy. He’s a coddled, out-of-touch elite who cares more about what his media friends say about...

From the Top

No, Trump supporters, I’m sorry to burst your disinformation bubble, however many of you are still sticking to Trump’s 2 main threads of falsehoods regarding the election and the current Covid-19 pandemic. First, the election.  Where to start? To take just one glaring and anxiety-inducing example: In the middle of last month, Reich-wing blogger Dan Bongino pissed kerosene on the fire of nutjob conspiracy theorists by posting that members of the Democratic Party will attempt a coup on election day in order to instill their chosen nominee in the White House, overriding election results and nullifying the ballots of Republicans.  On...

Diary Entry, 2009.26

Sima & MJ  ||  Cartoons  ||  ‘Microzine’ Sima Ladjevardian and MJ Hager Yesterday my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Sima Ladjevardian.  Don’t ask me to pronounce the name, but she is certainly getting our vote in this election.  Running against Dan Crenshaw (R), we hope to have a representative in Congress to replace Trump’s local bagboy. Now don’t get me (too) wrong: there’s a lot I like about Crenshaw.  He was, for instance, in the military, served overseas, and was wounded in combat, losing his right eye.  When I sent a beloved relative a pic of Sima, she...

Trump Goes to Town Hall 0

Trump Goes to Town Hall

The Town Hall hosted by George Stephanopoulos (I always have to copy and paste that name) on Tuesday night will hopefully open eyes for many “undecided” and even Republican voters.  It was both hilarious and terrifying that a sizable percentage of the American public still support someone so obviously ill-equipped, so thin-skinned, so wallowing in self-pity, craving of adulation, and even (as many in the mental health profession have stated) a “clear and present danger” 1 to democracy and this nation. And the Town Hall hopefully illustrated that better, straight from Trump’s own mouth, than we could have otherwise have hoped. ...

Trump’s Fatal Failure?

Where Stoppeth the Buck?  ||  Instead of Dealing With It . . . || Timeline of the Coronavirus Pandemic || Response & Previous Knowledge || Last Words: Covid and Vietnam While Coronavirus bodies are piling up, what has been the continued response from the top, and what could have been? Where Stoppeth the Buck ? During the Truman administration, a small wooden sign was placed on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office  reading “The Buck Stops Here”.1 What does that mean? The Wikipedia page has a precise sentence for it: “The phrase refers to the notion that the President has to...
