Recently a white Woman was arrested for a hate crime when she spit on a black Woman. It does beg the question that if it had been a black woman spitting on a white woman whether or not the black woman would have been arrested for committing a hate crime. All kinds of bad stuff in human saliva so unless your swapping spit with someone you love it is very likely some sort of a crime either way.
I hate crime but if I was arrested for saying “I hate you” to a black person I would hate, hate crime! For example I hate the black people who looted the Rolex store in NYC during the BLM protest there. Does that make me a racist? Should I be arrested for a hate crime? What if I said I love the black people who looted the Rolex store and the white people who looted the US Capital. Is that a love crime? What does that make me? Yup an idiot!
One could argue that the Prime Directive of our government leaders is to protect the lives of its citizens. Having almost been wiped out in the Holocaust and having to actively defend the existence of their people it should come as no real surprise that the Israeli’s did the world’s best job of inoculating it citizens! But that is one of the advantages of living in a Jewish democracy.
Conversely the European Union comprising 27 different countries did a far worse job of protecting its citizens than either Israel or even the U.K. In America we have a bunch of Typhoid Mary’s refusing treatment just like she did but expecting to be treated the same as those of us who had the vaccine. Seems to me our leaders of yesteryear did a better job than the ones we have today. Jewish folks don’t take life for granted but Americans do!
Eric Clapton who had a reaction to the pandemic vaccine has decided that he will not play at any venue that requires a vaccine passport! I’m okay with that as long as Eric requires social distancing at this concerts. Let us see if Clapton is willing to put his money where his mouth is! He shouldn’t be able to have it both ways and allow folks with and without vaccinations into his concert hall.
This is just another incentive for folks who are old enough to get the vaccination to not get it and perhaps pass the virus on to someone who is not led enough to get one! We are sorry that Eric had a temporary reaction to the vaccine but when are these idiot entertainers going to stop thinking that they know everything about politics and now apparently medicine as well!
It does seem that in every group of people there are always a few shit heads who ruin it for the rest of us! Take the Black Lives Matters protests that were largely peaceful but a few assholes did loot, pillage and plunder a number of American cities. On January 6th while the majority of folks peacefully protested outside of the US Capital a few shit heads did enter the building to loot, pillage, and plunder.
To make matters worse the mainstream media have become a bunch of partisan assholes on both the left and right. Nazi Germany had its Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, while Bolshevik Russia had its Department for Agitation and Propaganda. In America we have CNN and Fox News. To all of this I say if it’s yellow let it mellow and if it’s brown let it drown! Hey, It’s all bullshit anyway.
Our so called lip and asshole leaders only know how to make sausages which they apparently store in pork barrels. Does beg the question then why we would want Washington DC to take over more of our non-sausage making economy. All of which raises the question of whether or not Bernie maintains a kosher diet. In fact two of Bernie’s Jewish constituents have decided not to sell their ice cream on the West Bank, creating a stink with the new Israeli leader.
Orthodox Jews can’t mix meat and dairy anyway so not a big problem for them but what about West Bank Arabs shouldn’t they be able to buy some Ben and Jerry’s Rocky Road or is that hitting too close to home for them maybe some Chubby Hubby or Cherries Garcia instead!
When it came to Afghanistan, Good Time Charlie had it right. Unfortunately what goes around comes around and what we did to the Russians they in turn, returned the favor to America! Things are going to get very ugly there as the Taliban consolidates their power. The big winner is China who will now be calling more of the shots in Asia.
The left will tell you that it was Ronnie Reagan who left the door wide open for Bin Laden in Afghanistan after we beat the Russians there, but it was the left that got us into Afghanistan in a much bigger way and whatever happens after Biden’s retreat there should be on their heads. W has said that things are going to get very ugly in Afghanistan and he is correct. However had Bin Laden not been located there W would never have gone there in the first place and the Taliban would have been doing the same for the last 20 years anyway.
Mrs Huxtable was thrilled that justice was done for Bill Cosby and she was correct! Now as to whether it was done for any of his alleged victims who the hell knows they were not the issue here anyway. Yes there was a lot of smoke around America’s dad when it came to the ladies but this specific case had already been decided years before.
The idiot judge who decided to try Cosby twice at the very least should have recused himself because his wife treated rape victims. Having not gotten the correct result in the first trial he lowered the bar so that he got the result he was looking for in the second. Why it took the PA supremes 3 years to decide this case is anyone’s guess. I’m not here to legally praise Cosby but i’m not here to legally bury him either!
When it comes to vaccinations the smart do need to learn from the dumb. Always tragic when an 18 year old plus Anti-Vaxxer dies from Covid but it would be a complete waste of life if the smart 18 year old plus Anti-Vaxxer survivors took no notice. Even worse if that Covid infected 18 year old infected their younger brothers or sisters! You do have to ask yourself if that is a form of legal manslaughter.
Having done the responsible thing why in God’s name are we not granting vaccine passports? Why should the irresponsible Anti-Vaxxers be allowed to literally play on a level playing field with the Pro-Vaxxers? Don’t let these folks into restaurants, casinos, stadiums, cinemas or concerts!
Hunter Biden is amazing; first he is an expert on natural gas and now he is an accomplished artist! The truth is he is neither but Daddy Biden has got to be feeling guilty about choosing his career over his sons issues after losing his mother and sister! Hunter has five kids and a couple of ex-wives so he needs the dough. Joe’s White House Ethics folks look the other way so that the best person Joe knows can continue to make some easy money.
Even Obama’s ethic folks aren’t buying this BS and have said that any buyers of Hunter’s “art” should have to be identified which the current President is not allowing. If one of Trump’s kids pulled this stunt the media would be screaming bloody murder. The public needs to know who is buying the President of the United States of America son’s art. Better yet he should sell them on Ebay, i’d Bid a couple of bucks!
Having worked for a couple of dysfunctional US military suppliers I completely understand why it’s space industry was easily replaced by 3 billionaires: Musk, Branson, and Bezos! I watched enthralled as Branson pumped huge amounts of carbon into the upper atmosphere and very shortly will watch Bezos doing the same thing. This along with their private jets and yachts belching carbon into the lower atmosphere will not go well with the Thunberg crowd.
Billionaires flying other billionaires into space is a potential PR disaster for them as can be seen by the the media’s lukewarm response to Branson’s recent accomplishment. All of which more likely explains why the billionaire winner of Bezos’ first flight is bailing on it but not to be undone is now being replaced by the 18 year old son of another billionaire! JFK said we could go to the moon and do the other things, who knew that would require mortgaging our grandkids future, while spoiling the environment for them in the process!
I knew someone who worked as a research person for an investment company in Boston. 5 years later they were the head of research but all of the Boston based researchers had been let go and were now located in India instead. Turned out that you could hire English speaking Indians to do research for a lot less money.
Coming off of the pandemic there will be a big push from the younger employees to not come back to their offices in the USA. Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan has said that he isn’t paying New York City money to an employee who is working in the boonies. Dimon is also correct that working remotely is not as effective as being under the same office roof with your boss. So be careful what you wish for because your new remote job may end up in a really remote place like India!
Recently I saw a program that was suggesting that Anti-Semite White Supremacists were the driving force that kept America out of WW2, while another program was suggesting that the driving force behind the American Revolution was Pro-Slavery White Supremacists! Sorry folks but neither of these claims were in fact the driving forces for keeping America out of one war while starting another.
This isn’t to say that Anti-Semitism and Pro-Slavery didn’t factor into the decisions to make or not make war but to suggest that they were the #1 reason is just reflective of the increasing partisan color divide which has been increasingly driving the political debate in this country.In the end that can be either a very healthy or destructive process that is dependent on people’s ability and willingness to listen to both sides of the argument. Unfortunately that is not currently happening and as a result is becoming increasingly destructive.
Michelle Goldberg who is Jewish and works for the Jewish owned New York Times wrote an article in the paper that the Christian Right is in decline and taking America with it! That is only half the story as in fact it is the Religious Right including American Zionists who have been doing that since at least 1948.
Both the New York Times and AIPAC were influential in getting America involved in Iraq War 2. When Iran gets the bomb and they most certainly will, both The NY Times and AIPAC will be leading the charge to destroy Iran’s Nuclear weapons. In the end it will be the Jewish religious right that will have contributed more to America’s decline than the Christian Right but both will have done irreparable harm to the USA.
Otherwise known as the Propaganda Broadcasting System. For your viewing pleasure they are going to run a program on the rise of Neo-Nazism and the extreme Right in Germany! Nothing wrong with that but they will never run a program on the rise of Neo-Communism and the extreme Left in America. When you consider how biased the mainstream media has become over the last few years, you understand just how easy Joseph Goebbels had it in Germany in the 1930’s!
In the 2030’s America will be contending with the successor of Bolshevik Bernie, will it be AOC or some other member of the Marxist Squad? We will be having our own leftist reign of terror against the remaining capitalist pigs in America and it will be every bit as crazy as it was in Petrograd after Lenin took control their. Will democracy survive or will dictatorship prevail once the coming global depression sets in?
The following Sunday Ricky Gervais is having breakfast with Chris Rock. Ricky tells Chris that he is going to become a father. Oh my god your joining the Priesthood Rock tells Ricky. Gervais who is very easily distracted goes off on a tangent and tells Chris about the time when he was a kid applying to become an alter boy the priest asked him if everything was ok down there pointing to his little ricky. Wow and what did your angry inch say to the Priest, Chris asked.
Getting back to the subject at hand Ricky shouts for Christ sakes i’m going to have a baby. Always busting Ricky’s balls Chris says are you telling me the surgery was successful, well if we’re talking about my vasectomy clearly it wasn’t Ricky replied. Jesus, just think by the time your kid is getting out of diapers you’ll be getting into them Chris replies.
I remember a few years ago stopping at the local slurp and burp for my morning coffee on the way to work. At some point the Indian store owner (who would lose the business to the IRS for not paying his taxes) hired a lady to work the morning shift. For the next 6 months she was telling her regular customers that their coffee was on her. The truth was it was on the non-tax paying store owner, who promptly and rightly fired her once he discovered what she had been doing.
Both Obama and Biden have racked up 30 trillion in debt doing what the lady store clerk was doing although the tab is not on them or even the folks that voted for them but rather on the future yet to be born. While the left will tell that this debt is morally correct, none of them are willing to put their money where their mouth is. And that is both a morally and a financially bankrupt mentality.
Back in New York Caterina Murino is lying on her back with her legs up in stirrups. Her OB is telling her that she is just barely pregnant. Ricky Gervais is shaking his head in disbelief and telling the doctor that his vasectomy worked for 30 years and now apparently not so much in the last 30 days. The OB is telling Ricky she has seen this before, that it was the woman’s infertility that was preventing any pregnancy.
Ricky remembers that the doctor who did his vasectomy was running 2 hours behind schedule and rushed in quickly gave him a shot on one side and before it could take any effect immediately cut him open and then repeated this on the other side. I felt like a piece of meat, he must have screwed up something. The OB told him we can find out right now if you like! What do you mean Ricky asked the Doctor? Well i’ll need a sperm sample to look at, Ricky turned to Caterina and told her he would need a hand with that. Caterina replied that Ricky had 2 of them and he should pick one.
I read Don Rumsfeld’s obit the other day that said he was responsible for killing 400,000 people. I wondered how many people Obama killed. Obama was in High School when the Russians invaded Afghanistan. Ten years later Charlie Wilson would win his war there! That was the way to win the Afghan war by not putting boots on the ground there.
Had Billy Boy Clinton launched a missile into Osama’s pants instead of having Monica Lewinsky launch the missile in his own pants maybe we could have avoided the whole mess over there. Biden who voted to get us in this mess in the first place is finally doing what Obama should have done after killing Bin Laden. At the end of the day it’s not necessarily how many you killed but rather how many you saved. Had the West listened to Churchill 6 dead Nazi’s as opposed to 60 million.
Early the following morning Caterina Murino is sitting on Ricky Gervais side of the bed and asking him if he is awake. Grunting at her, she asks him to open his eyes. When he complies he sees her waving a pregnancy tester in front of his face. Jumping out of bed he starts screaming holy shit, holy shit, holy shit. When he calms himself down Caterina says to Ricky you know you’re the Father right? Gervais shrugs and says who else could it be. Do you know what you want to do Ricky asks? Shaking her head no she starts to cry.
Taking Caterina into his arms Ricky tells her that was a very stupid question but for what it is worth he knows that she would make a great mother if that is what she really wants. Lifting her head off Ricky’s chest she asks him if he really thinks so. Ricky says of course of I do. And you would be okay with that Caterina asks? Of course I would Ricky replied and then said to her well I guess our vacation is over!
On the way to Hawaii for their 4 week vacation Caterina Murino is telling Ricky Gervais that she is going off the pill given that Ricky has had a vasectomy and is producing only jizz lite anyway. Gervais is thrilled because he is interpreting this as more evidence that she is committed to him. But then always the pessimist he realizes that Caterina will be getting her period while they are on vacation and how is that going to work out.
Thinking about this Ricky remembers the old joke about the difference between a lady terrorist and a lady with PMS. You can negotiate with a terrorist! He wonders which one Caterina will turn out to be once she has her period. Three weeks into their vacation and there is still no sign of either. All of a sudden Murino drops a bomb shell and tells Ricky that she has missed her time of the month. Half joking Ricky tells her that he hasn’t missed it all. Staring daggers Caterina tells him that she needs to get a pregnancy tester.
With the Supremes taking a pass on whether transgender “boys” should be allowed to pee in the boys room, boys have now lost the one thing that they could do way better than girls! Yup that’s right pissing while standing up. That urinal advantage gave boys a much quicker way to get in and out of the bathroom too. Now they will not be using urinals because they will not wish to shake the lily in front of a transgender “boy” who presumably has nothing to shake!
Girls rooms on the hand do not have urinals so a transgender “girl” has no other option but to pee while sitting down behind closed doors. Increasingly they will also be beaten in sports by “girls” who can still shake their lily! Just when the girls were starting to break thru the glass ceiling along comes a lily shaker stealing their thunder.
Rick Gervais is having Sunday breakfast with Chris Rock who is holding a sausage link in his hand and asking Ricky if he has managed to marinated his meat yet. Ricky nods and tells Chris that his blood is never going back into his big head! He is sure that Caterina Murino has experienced the very last intelligent conversation she will ever have with him. Rock tells him not to worry as Gervais has already established a very low intellectual standard with her and she is very unlikely to notice this anyway.
Ricky shrugs and tells Chris that he and Cat are going to Hawaii for the next month to really get to know each other. Gervais is again thinking that at his age if anything is going to happen between them it better happen sooner as opposed to later. Rock tells him that he might want to lay in a supply of little blue pills. Ricky tells him that his pink steel couldn’t possibly get any harder!
A few days later Ricky Gervais and Caterina Murino are having dinner at Caterina’s apartment. Ricky notices that Caterina is wearing his engagement ring again and she is dressed to kill, hoping that at last they will consummate their relationship. Ricky is staring intently at her very low cut dress and thinking that lunch is being served! She finally tells him that her face is up here and he replies that if they made bra’s for a man’s testicles that displayed as much ball cleavage as her boob cleavage she wouldn’t be looking at his face either.
After a few glasses of vino they started to kiss 😚 and one thing lead to the other, which in turn lead to her bedroom. After making love to Caterina, Ricky tells her that he has lost his virginity for a second time. The following morning Caterina said to him that he had been a very busy boy to which Ricky replied that he had been “IN” heaven 3 or 4 times last night. He tells her that he loves her, rolls over and goes back to sleep.
The overwhelming norm is for a man to put his 1 into a woman’s 0. This was decided by Natural Selection a very long time ago. Back in the day it required a 1 and 0 for a human to reproduce themselves. Today that seems to be a lesser requirement but the rub in all of this was religion imposing a 1 and 0 standard only with everything else being considered abnormal!
Ironic perhaps because in some religions their leaders were precluded from sticking their 1 anywhere as they were married to their fictional god. Now that is what we would call abnormal and at the end of the day what adults do with their ones and twos behind closed doors is their own business.
We literally have millions of illegal folks living in this country who are being called undocumented. That goes without saying because if they were here legally they would have documents! Increasingly they are being called migrants or even homeless, which of course they would be having migrated from their homes illegally to the USA.
Does anyone actually immigrate to America anymore? Why would they wait in the hot sun outside a US embassy when it is faster and easier to come here illegally! Clearly the exception has become the rule but who else is going to flip America’s hamburgers while our unemployed are being paid big bucks to stay home. Yes they are all undocumented migrant dreamers and I say welcome to you all. When the blue States send you a mail in ballot vote for the party that gives you free stuff. It starts with a (D).
All black lives matter, this makes perfect sense unless you are a partisan professional democrat and their media allies. This is because the Demmy’s would be forced to explain why 7000 black/brown people murder 7000 black/brown people every year. Recently the former NYPD cop and democrat NYC mayoral candidate Adams said that the demmy controlled US Congress is willing to address the white supremacy suburban rifle murder problem but not the black/brown city hand gun murder problem!
Once again this makes perfect partisan democrat sense if you are promoting an anti republican white supremacy political strategy! This is why in spite of democrat controlled cities like Minneapolis and Louisville that Demmy’s are only investigating the police and not their Demmy political supervisors. No surprise when you consider that the National Police Association (NAPO) endorsed Trump in 2020.
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
My Father and Grandfather were one of these as both were born there. Today Germany is the most powerful Country in the EU but it has nothing to do with having the strongest military but rather because they are the richest nation in Europe. The Germans had a god awful 20th century which is why both my Father and Grandfather died in the USA.
The krauts are not going to repeat the mistakes of the last century and will torpedo any moves by NATO or the EU to aggressively push back on any moves against China and Russia. While there were 60 million killed in WW2 the millions that will die in WW3 will be located in Pacific Rim countries this time around.
Having successfully covered up how the Chinese Commie Virus got its start without having to pay any penalty being imposed on them by the West the Chinese Commies then moved against the democratic process in Hong Kong. Once again the Commies got away with this unscathed by the West. This in turn will empower the Chinese to move against Taiwan and if the response by the West is the same then expect a Civil War to break out on the Korean Peninsula.
If this sounds vaguely familiar that is because it is a replay of the 1930’s in Europe where first Austria voted to merge with Germany (Hong Kong), then the Sudetenland was taken over by Germany (Taiwan), while the German invasion of Poland was correcting the injustice of the WW1 armistice (no peace treaty signed after the Korean War armistice). Success will then lead to war with Japan as payback for the Japanese invasion of China in the 1930’s.
The left handed media which is 80% of the total in the USA is already moving to “explain” that the emergence of Xi could not have been predicted. Therefore it is not idiot Biden’s fault that he voted for free trade with China so as to convert the country to a democratic nation! Apparently most of the folks who are writing this line of BS clearly never heard of Chairman Mao who was way more powerful than Xi.
But along comes the worst thing to hit the world since WW2 the Chinese commie pandemic and the left once again pushed back on the possibility that it was man made. Biden only wanted to give his intelligence community 3 months to determine this because once again idiot Joe would look extra stupid for helping to create the next world leader. This piss poor response has only embolden Xi to move against Hong Kong. Now our Pacific commanders are warning about Xi’s next move against Taiwan which will happen during Biden’s last term.
Over the next 4 years it will be interesting to see how many times Joe is going to remind us all of this bumper sticker! I’m reminded of the New Yorker who accused the Teflon Don of assaulting him and then just before the case went to trial Gotti murdered his Godfather Big Paul. Needless to say the accuser immediately dropped the charges as the headlines screamed I FORGOTTI.
Joe will win in a landslide and not because the Russians stole the election for him but rather just like 4 years ago the left stayed home but this year they could stay home AND also vote as well! At the end of the day the incumbent President and his party are going to take the hit again just like they did when the housing bubble burst in 2008 or as now with the current Pandemic.
As Biden literally shuffles off from one meeting to the next (G-7, NATO, and Putin) you can’t help but believe that his European counterparts think how ironic it is that a feeble America is now being lead by a feeble leader. Currently the biggest threat to America’s world leadership is not China but rather the national debt which will lead to a global depression. For Biden’s he is purchasing his legacy off the backs of our grandchildren as Trump and Obama had done.
The recently retired head of Israel’s MOSSAD has said America does not have a coherent China strategy and this is why Israel has a great relationship with China. The Israeli’s understand that when Biden exits Afghanistan the Chinese will be moving in to fill that void in the Middle East. How pathetic that the guy who voted to put our guys in harms way on 9/11/01 is now bringing them home on the same day 20 years later. The next day the Taliban will be declaring victory!
Imagine if you will that there is a lab and wet market in Chicago and the first case of Covid is discovered there. Trump refuses to call in the WHO. Now imagine if you will that the doctor that discovered the first patient with Covid dies from it and Trump refuses to call in the WHO. Now imagine if you will that the first case of Covid shows up outside of Chicago and Trump refuses to call in the WHO.
Imagine if you will that Trump also represses the Democratic process in Puerto Rico during the pandemic, the moral outrage in the West would have been both swift and decisive. But when the Chinese Commies do the very same thing not peep from the G-7. Now imagine if you will millions of dead in the next world war but this time they won’t be from Europe.
Growing up in the 1950’s as a white kid we had no idea just how good we had it here in the USA. Not only that but my father was a German immigrant whose family ran a successful business selling stuff for US military suppliers! President Washington understood perfectly well that he was only building a democracy for tax paying white guys in America. Had he attempted to build a democracy for everyone there would not have been a United States of America!
President Lincoln understood perfectly well that he was building a democracy that would not allow for slavery anymore. Had he attempted to build a country where white and black were equal there would not have been a United States of America! Women only got the right to vote a hundred years ago so whatever came before then, was on somebodies else head. We only began to address Jim Crow in the 1960’s. My grandchildren are growing up in a country of a more equal God!
The very next Sunday Ricky Gervais is a no show at breakfast with Chris Rock. Not getting an answer to his phone call Rock decides to walk over to Ricky’s apartment. Knocking on the door a clearly hung over and disheveled Gervais appears telling Rock that he is sorry that he didn’t come for breakfast. Asking Ricky if there is a problem, he tells Chris what happened the previous Sunday with Caterina Murino. Not wanting to ask what happened Rock asks Ricky if there is anything he can do. Gervais says yes let me please go back to bed and then closes the door.
Later that same day Chris Rock decides to pay a visit on Caterina Murino and tells her the story about how after Ricky’s wife died he holed himself up in his apartment listening to music while drinking himself into oblivion. I think he is doing again but this time the person he loves is still alive. After Rock leaves Murino walks to Gervais apartment, hearing loud music, she knocks and a drunk Gervais opens the door. Caterina asks for her engagement ring and when he gives it back to her, she puts it on and leaves. Ricky turns the music off and pours his drink down the drain. End scene 15.
Talking to her mother that same Sunday morning Caterina Murino is telling her about the disagreement that she and Ricky Gervais just had. Caterina is complaining about how men can be such complete emotional jerks! So it’s over Maria Murino asks her daughter, hoping that she will say that it is. Instead Caterina is telling her mother that she is even more committed to Ricky. Maria is even more confused until her daughter explains to her that at least he is now ready to make a commitment to her.
Later that Sunday there is a knock on Caterina Murino’s door and when she opens it, it is Ricky Gervais on both knees begging for her forgiveness. Taking him by the hand she leads him into her bedroom. Ricky starts to have a panic attack and asking him if he is okay, he says that he is worried about being able to perform like her old boyfriends. Caterina is upset by this and asks him why he thinks she is so superficial. Not getting an answer she gives him back his engagement ring while showing him to the door. As Ricky is walking out of the building he is telling himself that Chris Rock was right, he is a friggin moron! End scene 14
Showing up at Caterina Murino’s door Ricky Gervais hands her a piece of paper and when she realizes that it’s the results of a recent blood test he had she yells at him in Italian. Then in English she angrily asks him what kind of woman does he think she is? Ricky is all apologies and claims ignorance about how relationships work with her generation. She tells him that falling in love with a woman hasn’t change in the last thousand years and slams the door in his face!
Over Sunday breakfast Gervais is telling Chris Rock what has happened and Rock asks him if he is a friggin moron before Ricky can answer Chris says to him don’t tell me I already know the answer to that! Gervais says that he and his wife were High School sweethearts and she did most of the chasing so what does he know about all of this but what should I do he asks Chris. Get down on your hands and knees and beg for forgiveness Rock replies. You know I was perfectly happy being miserable and lonely and she had to come into my life and ruin all of that for me Gervais said. End Scene thirteen.
Driving back to the city from the Hamptons, Caterina Murino is very quiet. Asking her why she tells Ricky Gervais that she is very frustrated because he doesn’t seem to take anything very seriously. Arriving back at Caterina’s apartment Ricky recognized that she was really upset when she didn’t invite him in. Buying her some flowers the next day Ricky became very worried when he did not hear from Caterina. Thinking about how he could fix this he set out on a course of action that would get him into even more trouble with her!
That is because Ricky found himself caught between a rock and hard place. On the one hand he felt that he had mated for life and that pursuing Caterina was an act of disloyalty to his wife while on the other he figured that Caterina would eventually do the math, given their age difference and come to her senses. For Ricky this would become a lose/lose proposition having lost another woman that he had fallen in love with!
Ricky Gervais and Caterina Murino are spending the 4th of July holiday at Chris Rock’s House in the Hamptons. Rock is telling them both that at the local hot dog eating contest the guy ate over 70 hot dogs while the woman ate less than 50 but that they both received the very same prize money. Ricky says that isn’t fair because the lady is being paid more money per dog eaten. He is also wondering if they get a prize for taking the world’s biggest crap? Rock adds that he wonders how many pounds of lips and assholes that would add up to?
Caterina is shaking her head and asking them to please change the conversation. Ricky tells them how he just received a catalog from the local furniture store which had some different colored stools in it. So he went down to the store and asked the lady if she would show him, her stool samples. So what did she do Rock asks take you to the ladies room? Chris tells them that they have a whole holiday dedicated to that in Boston, they call it evacuation day. End scene 11.
Would have been my parents 76th wedding anniversary! Instead Nancy Pelosi wants everyone to remember that it was the day of Trump’s insurrection. Trump has been out of the White House for 5 months now and it begs the question why Pelosi hasn’t called for him to be indicted in Federal court for this!
The fact is the USA has the world’s best armed militia, many of whom are Trump supporters. In the past some of these gun nuts have not been afraid to use them given the number of mass shootings that happen here almost weekly. Nancy wants you to believe that these folks came to Washington without their guns to commit an insurrection. It is the Speaker who should be indicted for running a keystone kop kapital police force. The democrat US Attorney General Garland is investigating both the Minneapolis and Louisville police forces over BLM issues but the police chiefs in those cities work for the Mayor who for decades has always been a democrat so don’t expect any investigation of Pelosi either.
So another pretty young girl allegedly murdered by an illegal immigrant who apparently had documents at one time! Packing her up in a suitcase and dumping her on the side of the road is not a great endorsement for our completely out of control immigration policy! Not thrilled with Trumps wall but not jumping up and down with excitement over the democrats do almost nothing approach either!
Would help if those who call them undocumented could explain why none of these document less folks are less likely to do harm as they allegedly did in Iowa recently. My guess in that particular case is that the alleged murderer was in fact more likely to have murdered her as he knew that on top of everything else he wanted to do to her he was also here illegally…
Just one too many problems for him and tragically one last problem for her!
It was democrat President Harry Truman who helped to create Israel in May of 1948. It looked like “Give ‘Em Hell Harry” was going down in flames in the general election that year. Truman needed every vote he could lay his hands on and in the end his support for the creation of Israel worked out great for him. Today both countries are divided into two political camps with the religious right(s) voting for Trump or Bibi. Trump went after the American Zionist vote last year by handing over to Bibi Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and much of the West Bank.
This of course has put Biden and the Demmy’s between a rock and hard place with a less loyal Jewish voter base that they have had a hammer lock on since 1948. However the far left wing of the Demmy party is no longer willing to give Bibi and his religious right a blank check and have gone so far as to accuse the Israeli’s of apartheid. Very convenient then that Biden’s choice of Secretary of State happens to be Jewish. Could all of this explain the very Pro Semite position that the Biden administration took in the most recent conflict there.
When you consider risk perception research, one understands that if the problem was god made people are far more forgiving than if the problem was man made! So when it comes to the Chinese Communist Pandemic you need to ask yourself the following;
When the Chinese doctor discovered the Coronavirus the Chinese Commies immediately called in the WHO to help contain it? Answer: NOPE
When the Chinese doctor died from the Coronavirus the Chinese Commies immediately called in the WHO to help contain it? Answer: NOPE
When the Chinese Doctors recognized that the Coronavirus was spreading outside of Wuhan the Chinese Commies immediately called in the WHO to help contain it? Answer: NOPE
Clearly if this was a god made virus then the Chinese Commies blame it on God (who they don’t believe In anyway) and immediately bring in the WHO to help contain it. But if it was man made then it makes perfect sense that the Chinese Commies would not immediately bring in the WHO to help contain it. If it walks like a Peking Duck and it quacks like a Peking Duck it is very likely going to be a very Dead Duck!
Back in the States, Ricky Gervais is having breakfast with Chris Rock. Rock asks Ricky how his tour of Sardinia went with Caterina Murino, Ricky replies that that they were still talking to each other at the end of week so it must have gone okay. Gervais admits that he is having some real feelings for Caterina which are scaring the hell out of him as he is sure that she will eventually come to her senses given their age differences. Rock tells him that he is better looking than Bogie and Bacall never came to her senses so there’s no telling what Murino will do.
Chris then asks Ricky if he taken the “cure” with Murino, Cure Gervais asks? Yeah you know the cure for your restless third leg syndrome Chris replies. No of course not was his answer. Well just in case she does come to her senses you might want to take the cure with her sooner as opposed to later or otherwise you might regret it, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but soon and for the rest of your life Chris tells him. End scene 10
The following Friday the extended Murino family has been invited to dinner to see Caterina and to meet Ricky Gervais before they return to America the next day. Someone asks Ricky how he enjoyed his tour of the island and he said there were moments of amazing beauty separated by long stretches of sheer terror! When asked why he said you have lady drivers, you have Italian drivers and then you have Caterina Murino who is in a class all by herself. I ran out of underwear on the very first day and had to go commando. We had to stop so I could pick up some adult diapers and turning his back to the Murino family lifted his shirt and said look you really can’t tell I’ve got them on.
So the she’s not a driver or a Doctor someone asks Gervais and he says that he’s changed his mind about her becoming a doctor because she would be great giving colonoscopies, there is nothing back there that could poke her eyes out. But then again she does run the risk of losing her sense of smell which when you think about it might not be all bad! So she takes her next patient out for a quick ten minute drive scares the crap out of them and she’s ready to go. End scene 9.
The following Saturday Caterina and Ricky arrive at the home of her parents María Murino (maybe played by Isabella Rossellini) and Paolo Murino (maybe played by Roberto Benigni) in Cagliari. Sitting down for dinner Caterina’s parents are giving them the 3rd degree about their relationship. This is because Paola and María thought that if this was a serious relationship that it would likely mean the end of any hope for them having any grandkids. Ricky finally blurts out that they were just friends with no benefits.
Waking up early Ricky heads down stairs in his PJ’s looking for some caffeine where he finds the Murino’s fully dressed and eating their breakfast. Gervais grabs a cup of coffee and tells them that he is going to step out into the back yard so he can answer some emails. A few minutes later Caterina comes down and not seeing Ricky asks her parents where he is? Her father points to the backyard and tells Caterina that her Superman is out there. She looks out the window and then goes back upstairs. When she comes back down she goes out the door and greets Gervais. Paola asks María did she just change back into PJ’s? Maria nods yes and replies that for the very first time in her life Caterina is doing the chasing! End Scene 8.
Meeting later that Sunday for a walk thru Central Park, Caterina Murino is clearly excited about their upcoming trip to Sardinia. Caterina tells Ricky Gervais that they will be staying at her parents home, not wanting to hurt her feelings but protective of his privacy he tells her that he does not want to kick anyone out of their bedroom. Caterina tells him not to worry that he will have his own bed, but not hearing her say that he would have his own bedroom he asked. Somewhat sheepishly she admitted that they would be sleeping in their own beds but in the same bedroom. WHAT Ricky said when Caterina said not to worry that her parents were right in the next room. He said fine but no wearing teddies and the bedroom door stays open added Gervais.
Walking Caterina home they passed a clothing store and walking in Gervais asked the clerk if the sold pajamas. Pointing to the back of the store they found a large display of super hero PJ’s. Picking up the Superman one and holding it in front of him while looking in the mirror Ricky said perfect. Then grabbing the Super Girl version and holding up to her Ricky said no your not a super girl. Gervais then grabbed the Wonder Woman pjs and holding them up told her she wasn’t a Wonder Woman either but when he saw The Cat Woman pjs he told her they were perfect! End Scene 7.
Meeting with Chris Rock the next day for Sunday breakfast Ricky Gervais tells him that he is going to Sardinia with Caterina Murino so that she can give him the grand tour of her island. Rock then hands Gervais a paper bag with a bunch of condoms and a dildo. Ricky says I get the condoms but what is this for? Chris tells him that the younger generation of ladies expect Equality of Pleasure and Rock thought that Ricky might need some help with that!
In the meantime Caterina is having her usual Sunday phone call with her mother Maria and tells her that she and Ricky are coming home next weekend. Maria Murino who is aware of the circumstances of her daughters engagement tells her that things seem to be moving very quickly. Caterina replies that Ricky said that if something was going to happen between them it was going to have to be sooner rather than later. Gervais thinks that Murino is both a very smart and nice person and wants to see just how deep it runs in her DNA. End scene 6.
When Gervais and Murino walked into the art gallery Ricky muttered damn under his breath. Caterina asked him what the problem was, and he said that he forgot his glasses, didn’t bother to go back for them because he thought he would just be looking at flowers and naked ladies and his eyes where still good enough for that but not for this modernist crap they were showing. He told her he could paint like this all he needed to do was to strip naked, stand in the middle of some canvas while eating some tainted fish. Wa La another masterpiece. Thinking for a minute Caterina said so you can’t see, you have to go to bed early and you need help getting up is that right? To which Ricky replied “wait a second I don’t need any help getting it up although I wouldn’t necessarily turn down any help either. Ok then Caterina responded so lets go to dinner instead.
Arriving at the Restaurant Ricky tells Caterina that she is going to have read the menu to him. She recommends the Calamari and He says that he won’t eat anything that resembles a rectum and she says that’s good to know. Ricky orders the Spaghetti and Meatballs instead and perhaps out of spite Caterina orders the Calamari. After a couple of glasses of wine, Gervais screws up the courage to ask Murino if she would ever consider going somewhere with him for a week or so but strictly plutonic. Caterina tells him that would terrific and asks Ricky where he would like to go, Sardinia was his reply. When? How about next week? Great! End scene 5.
Like most Sunday’s Ricky Gervais is having breakfast with Chris Rock at the local deli when Chris asks him how he made out with Everything Galore? Waving his hand in front of Chris’ face he tells him that they are engaged, engaged in what Rock asks? You know your old enough to be her father right? Ricky explains to Chris what has transpired over the last couple of days and admits that he might be in over his head to which Chris asks which head is Ricky talking about?
Are you planning on seeing the lady again Chris asks? Ricky tells him that they are going to some art gallery opening next Saturday. Rock then tells Gervais that he might want to think about stocking up on condoms and viagra. You should probably get a blood test also Chris tells him. Giving a big sigh Ricky tells Chris that he has been laid thousands of times but always with the same woman but he’s not even close to surrendering that memory to Caterina or any other lady for that matter. Rock shaking his head responds that we’ve got to get you laid Ricky. End Scene 4.
Having walked Caterina back to her apartment building she asks Ricky if he would like to come there for dinner that evening. “You can cook?” Ricky said somewhat incredulously to which Caterina replied I’m a very good cook! Thinking that meant some kind of rabbit food Ricky asked her what she would be making for dinner? She said Spaghetti with meatballs, Oh my god that’s my favorite, growing up that was the only decent thing my Irish mother could make everything else was either boiled or a casserole! I told my wife before we got married that if she ever made me a casserole that would be grounds for a divorce, what time Ricky asked her. She said how about 8 and he replied that was way past his bedtime how about 6 instead?
Showing up at 6 with a bottle of vino they sit down for some appetizers and Gervais asks Murino about her family. Discovering that she grew up on Sardinia, Ricky tells her that is the one place in Italy that he has never been too. Caterina offers to show him around her very pretty island sometime. Sitting down for dinner Ricky tells her that this is the best Spaghetti he has ever had although admittedly his dear departed Irish mother set a very low bar for Caterina to get over! Having finished coffee and dessert Ricky walked over to where Caterina was sitting, got down on one knee and said “ I would like to propose to you that you please do me the honor of making this spaghetti for me again sometime very soon! When she replied “of course” he said to her “great now would you please help get me get back up”. End third scene.
While walking from Tiffany’s to Bogie’s childhood home on the Westside of NYC, Ricky Gervais tells Caterina Murino that if for any reason she feels like dumping him all she has to do is to take the ruby ring off and he will do the same. Standing in front of Bogies home Ricky mentions that Bogies father was a Doctor. Caterina replied that she had considered becoming one also, to which Ricky said that she wouldn’t have lasted being a Doctor for more than 5 minutes. How come Caterina asked, because your first male patient would have blinded you in the eye when you told him to turn to the right and cough and the second one would have blinded you in the other eye when to told him to turn to the left and cough. Caterina just shook her head in disbelief.
As they turned to walk down Riverside drive she asked him what river they were looking at and Ricky told Caterina that it was the Hudson River where the miracle happened, did you ever see the movie he asked? Shaking her head no he said that when Tom Hanks playing the pilot landed the plane on the river he came out of the cockpit yelling “Evacuate” and i’m thinking his passengers have already done that, what they really needed to do was to get off the plane. Caterina tells him that he is very immature to which Ricky responds that he has made a lot of money being immature. End scene 2.
Having recently relocated to NYC, Caterina Murino tags along with a friend who was invited to Chris Rock’s 56th birthday party. Pointing to Ricky Gervais who is sitting in the corner by himself Rock asks Murino to talk to Gervais with the hope that he would stay longer. Introducing her to him as one of those Bond girls Ricky rolls his eyes, holds up his hand says don’t tell me and looking her up and down states somewhat sarcastically Everything Galore.
Feeling put upon Caterina replies that she can speak 3 languages how many does he speak? Ricky thinks for a second and says “Da baby eat my dingo”, laughing Caterina asks what’s that and he replies matter of factly that’s Australian. He then says “Da baby eat my kiwi” that’s new zealanderish do you want me to speak some American also? Some what regretful about hurting her feelings he then tells Caterina about the time he was going to University in London in the early 80’s and there was a crowd outside the Savoy Hotel. Asking the paparazzi what was happening, Ricky is told that Sophia Loren is coming out to go back to Rome. Looking at Caterina, Ricky says to her “and right up until this very moment I would have said that she was the most beautiful Italian lady I had ever seen”. End scene 1.
A recently widowed Comedian (perhaps played by Ricky Gervais) meets a recently divorced actress (perhaps played by Caterina Murino) at a birthday party in NYC for a fellow comedian (perhaps played by Chris Rock). Gervais and Murino spend the next 3 hours talking and laughing and at the parties end he offers to drive her home. Stopping in front of her apartment she turns to say good night, kisses him and tells him that she is going to marry him someday! When he asks her where his engagement ring is she stumbles for a reply where upon he tells her to meet him tomorrow in front of Tiffany’s at 10AM.
Neither expected the other to show up but when Ricky arrives at Tiffany’s there she is! Walking into the store the clerk asks them how he can be of assistance with Ricky telling her that they are looking for an engagement ring. When clerk show them some rings, Caterina say no we need an engagement ring for him. Completely confused the clerk asks Ricky what he would like and he replies a pinky ring. Looking at the selection he picks a gold ring with a ruby stone which fits perfectly. Ricky tells Caterina that it looks just like Humphrey Bogarts ring and then tells the clerk to bring a selection of ladies pinky rings to look at. Purchasing each other look alike engagement pinky rings they agree to walk over to see Bogie’s childhood home on 103rd. On the way there they talk about how they have completely put the horse before the cart having become engaged but yet to fall in love….to be continued! (c) 2021
Remember when Al Gore invented the internet? America was the leader in its development and it is one of the bright spots in the US economy. Very likely why Russia and China are attacking it so as to undercut both our world leadership and the US economy at the same time.
Not that this technology has been all good given the explosion of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and all that has wrought on Western democracies. If that is not enough the Feds are going after the two major digital monopolies Amazon and Google. On the one hand the Democratic socialists are not happy with the new billionaire digital class but with the other are happily accepting their campaign contributions.
We are a great nation because of immigrants. But the folks that came here had to have a lot of get up and go or otherwise they couldn’t have cut it here! I went to school with a guy whose family built 3 houses on the same plot of land. They had to because the Indians burned down the first two homes their ancestors had built!
Today we have come full circle and anyone who can sneak into the country is put on the public dole plus in LA LA Land having a $500,000 dollar home built for them too! Give me your sick, your tired, your poor! Ultimately this works very well for the Professional Democrats but less well for Republican taxpayers. We have come full circle with immigration automatically being considered all good for America. To be frank it will eventually expedite our decline as we consume the last of the American golden goose that our legal immigrant forefathers built for us!
Otherwise known as the Baby boomers. As one of nine kids I would inherit hand me down clothes from my older brothers including from my 4 minute older brother! As my fraternal twin was shorter and stockier than I, nothing fit me well. If that wasn’t bad enough his taste in clothes was god awful!
Today unless you call them vintage clothing nobody is going to accept hand me downs for any reason even if your homeless. Although just the other day someone did pay 1.8 million bucks for some used sneakers. And that is all I’m going to say about that!
President Lincoln begged his Generals to never hold one of these because the only decision that ever came out of them was to never make war! So no surprise then that when the world confronted Iran over their nuclear weapon development program they came up with an agreement that Condelezza Rice and others thought was not well done.
In fact it just delayed Iran’s development and when you consider Trump’s one sided support of Israel it comes as no surprise that he withdrew from this agreement. Biden has already said that he will get us back into Obama’s agreement, will it bring peace to the Middle East or just become another Munich type of agreement? As The Democracy’s continue to expand multi lateral agreements like the Paris and Iran accords, the more likely Iran gets a nuke and the world’s climate gets even worse!
“One lawyer with a briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns …”The Godfather. Today Don Vito Corleone would be talking about lobbyists most of whom are lawyers. Our so called leaders are in fact addicted to money in order to finance their re-elections while our former leaders become lobbyists in order to continue feeding their financial addiction. It seems that the more money we throw at Washington the lower the return the voters get from this investment.
Our financial strength has become our political weakness. I remember the anti-drug ad that showed 2 fried eggs with the narrator saying this is your brain on drugs. Before our addicted leaders fry what is left of America brains, America desperately needs to get it’s leaders into a rehab program to wean them off of their financial dependency.
Hiden Biden thought that granting China free trade would bring democracy there! Instead the Chinese took democracy away from Hong Kong! Way too go Joe. Then Joe flew too Atlanta instead of Wuhan effectively letting the Chinese Commies off the hook again over the pandemic!
Now Joe is going to cut carbon by 50% over the next decade while allowing the Chinese to put even more carbon into the atmosphere over the same decade. Thanks again Joe for allowing the Chinese to use the cheapest energy source while imposing a more expensive energy on America! Xi has got to he laughing all the way to the bank!
So Lebron James is a brilliant basketball player but just another dumb jock! Apparently the white cop should have waited until the girl stabbed the other girl with her knife! But had the victim died the white cop would have been criticized for being racist! Lose Lose.
Not every black on (white)blue confrontation is racist and I really wish that the black community was far more selective in this regard! We made a great start with George Floyd lets not screw that up by proclaiming every incident another BLM moment! There not!
According to the idiot son #43 the GOP has become all three of these! Perhaps if “W” had not gone after the guy who tried to kill his Daddy, while grossly underestimating what it would take to succeed maybe the GOP wouldn’t be so isolationist! Had we not been so distracted by his idiot war maybe we would have paid more attention to how China was stealing us blind!
Now as for being nativist is it really too much to expect our so called government leaders to enforce the law and maintain a LEGAL immigration process! George understands that he “has been” put out to pasture by the GOP but then again he should never have been allowed in it in the first place! What this is really about is George W grooming nephew George P for bigger and better things in the GOP. But for the 70 million idiots who voted for Trump in 2020 which also included John Boehner, you gotta be kidding me!
If the fish smells it smells from the head down but our new non partisan democrat appointed Attorney General Merrick Garland wants you to believe that in Minneapolis it only smells from the neck down! This why the FEDS are only investigating the Minneapolis police dept!
That of course makes complete sense if you are actually a partisan democrat AG because the city has been run by Demmy’s every year since 1978. Who does Garland think runs the Minneapolis police department? Apparently not the last six mayors who were and are democrats!
So the black US Congress lady sent a vailed threat to the white jurors that if they vote to acquit Chauvin she is encouraging the BLM folks to burn down the other half of the city that they didn’t burn down last year! Her inference was very clear and is as bad as what Trump committed on 1/6/21.
Jerry “Lets pack the Supreme Court” Nadler will not be leading the charge for Waters impeachment because both are leftist extremists assholes. Having said that does that make me guilty of hate speech when I only hate what they are doing or not doing for the country? Plus because one is black and one is jewish does that make me a racist and anti-semitic or maybe just a sexist pig!
I’m a big fan of the two party system as long as it is as easy starting a third party as it was in establishing the two existing political parties. This is because when things go wacky like it did in the USA in the 1850’s a third party came alone to save the day! Once again the divisions in this country are being driven by color but also by income as well. Unfortunately the far right and the far left are increasingly calling the shots in the Democrat and Republican parties. Both wings believe they are passing Chanel #2, and both are committing acts of wonton unlawfulness!
If America is to avoid another Civil War it would be extremely beneficial to have a 3rd party of both moderate democrats and republicans emerge to save ourselves from the extremists in both parties. Unfortunately the career Demmy’s and Repub’s and their media allies will fight that both tooth and nail and by the time these folks wake up to how significant the threat is to democracy it will be way too late to do anything about it!
Both the Pope and the head of the WHO are expressing concern that effectively the white supremacist in western countries will hog the vaccine for themselves. At this stage there isn’t enough available to even go around in the developed world, never mind in poor countries who don’t have the infrastructure to handle the low temp requirements of the first two versions anyway.
At the end of the day the first world countries need to “put on the mask” first so as to get their countries back to work so that they in turn can then help to finance the vaccine shortages in the poor nations. Imagine if you will the social media outrage of a mother putting on the oxygen mask first in what would surely be portrayed as an act of a horrible and selfish parent!
Always a tragedy when a young person loses their life needlessly. In the case of Duarte Wright he had an outstanding warrant for committing an armed robbery with a gun and very likely panicked when stopped by the cops Did the lady cop know about the armed robbery and in the split second it took her to draw her Taser she accidentally fired her gun instead. We may never know!
It is difficult enough for innocent black people to be stopped by the cops as seen recently by the army reserve officer in Windsor, Virginia. The pepper spraying of this victim was outrageous but the rioting and looting in Minnesota over Wright was just plain wrong! I wish the black community would be more selective as to who they protest, riot or loot over as not all black victims are as innocent as OJ was!
I saw a show on PBS where they interviewed a mayor of a small city with a bunch of empty store fronts in his downtown area. Of course he wasn’t to blame for all this as it was the result of predatory capitalism. I have seen this all before in the small town that I lived in that voted to keep Wal-Mart out of the town to preserve their own downtown businesses. Wal-Mart moved to the town next door, paid their taxes there and the folks who lived in my town had to drive a few extra miles more to Wal-Mart. Lose-Lose for the small town idiots who were mainly listening to the local mom and pop stores who wanted to “preserve” the downtown area (and there sales) but would eventually fold anyway.
Today of course the so-called predatory capitalist is Amazon who frankly was a god send during the pandemic! Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman said that customers vote with their dollars, so the problem isn’t predatory capitalism but in fact predatory customers who are seeking to get the biggest bang for their shrinking buck! In an era of declining incomes who can blame anyone for doing this! A big thank you to both Wal-Mart and Amazon for providing a lower cost and a more convenient way to shop experience. Way to go capitalist!
My German born grandparents were treated very differently than Japanese born people during WW2. The reasons for this are very likely two-fold; first Germany didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor in a sneak attack killing over 2000 Americans while sinking most of the US Navy in the process! The second reason is that my Grandparents look more like Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt than Japanese born people did.
These were two very powerful differences that would result in allowing one to be free and one being confined. While my Grandfather was accused by one of his workers that he was helping the enemy by slowing down the munitions line he was the foreman of, he survived his war year(s) experience in the USA. While we know that some Japanese did not survive their confinement we will never know just how many would not have survived had they been free!
For Obama Iraq was the bad war and Afghanistan was the good war. But bugging out of Iraq brought on the head removal folks known as ISIS. Obama’s VP Biden now the Pres. is bugging out of Afghanistan on 9/11, which reminds me of Gampy Bush’s decision to bug out of Iraq #1 after 100 days in what was really America’s last good war!
On 9/12 the Taliban will be moving back in to Kabul and so just like Vietnam we leave behind another embarrassing failure which should never of happened. Afghanistan was never going to be the good war and both the Taliban and Al-Qaida are even stronger than they were on 9/11/01. Can we at least succeed in getting Doctor Afridi out of prison before we exit or is it going to be a complete rout?
Had LBJ chosen to invade North Vietnam at the get go or perhaps bombed their supply chains and missile sites early on maybe we could have won the war there or fought to a more lasting stalemate. But instead he like the future bush leaguer would impose military limitations on the folks who understood this way better than they did.
As a result of LBJ’s ego we are left with two tragic legacies; the first being a professional army which made it way easier for idiot boy W to invade Iraq! Had we still had a citizen soldier Army perhaps we would be asking what we can do for our country! The other consequence of Vietnam was the acceptance of a one China policy and both will rear its ugly head over the next decade!
PBS is working overtime rewriting these better class of folks history as being driven primarily by anti-semitism as opposed to being the sob sisters and peace society’s that FDR complained about. This is important in their push to blame white supremacy for the 60 million dead in WW2 as opposed to just blaming the anti war crowd who were very likely of every color in America! War what is it good for?
Their target 🎯 is the first media super star Charles Lindbergh who was blaming the Jewish movie barons and Jewish owned newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post for their pro-war stance. Lucky Lindy of course was correct in that only, but who can really blame the American Jewish community for their warmongering. In the end they were absolutely correct and the America First folks were absolutely incorrect. Over the next decade or two we will be facing the very same challenges and it will be interesting to see if the great grandkids of these original First folks handle them any better!
Otherwise known as gun control. We have the best armed militia and an even better armed police force. For all the talk about defunding the cops unless your de-arming the militia at the same time you’re going to have some real problems. I saw a Sheriff on Fox News the other day who had 4 ⭐️ on each shoulder. On Blue Bloods the Cops salute Tom Selleck on almost every show. It is going to take a very long period of time to de-militarize our civilian protectors.
On the other side are all the gun nuts, crazy’s, and political malcontents who are not going to de-gun anytime soon. It is clear that if we can’t fix the problem on the heals of 20 beautiful little children being gunned down in Sandy Hook CT then we need to recognize just how embedded this issue has become in our political DNA. Unfortunately our political leaders are exploiting the problem on both sides of the divide, while in the end any real solution is going to require a broad based consensus requiring compromises all around.
This makes way too much sense so no surprise that both Biden and southern Republican Govenor’s are not supporting this effort. That is because you have Trump anti-maskers who want to do whatever they wish. You have the Bobby Kennedy anti-vaxxers who don’t want the vaccination at all and don’t want to be treated any differently than those that were smart enough to get one! You have black people who don’t trust the government with many as a result not getting the shot. You have many illegal immigrants who are concern that getting one could mean a one way ticket back home!
We understand completely that our idiot leaders do not want to piss off any of their voters!! But having been vaccinated why do I need to social distance or even wear a mask? Why do I need to be tested or even be quarantined like folks who haven’t been vaccinated? Am I having to do this because some of these idiots refuse to get vaccinated?
RIP Prince Philip a couple months shy of 100. I remember when Princess Di was going to take the plunge with the Prince of Wales and all of the talk was about whether or not she was a virgin. No one was asking that of Phillip Mountbatten but you do wonder if George VI asked him for at least a sperm sample.
Apparently the only question the royal family had for Princess Meghan was how dark her baby was going to be. As for her virginity she very likely had already surrendered that to her first husband in the least. You do wonder how long this gig lasts after ERII kicks the bucket and the Bonnie Prince Charlie takes the throne. In the end it just perpetuates the classist society there which is only holding the country back from being great once again!
They say that voters vote with their wallet, so it makes perfect sense that politicians are buying their votes using various schemes depending on the political party involved. One of those schemes involves the increasing mounds of debt we are imposing on our children and grandkids future. These chickens will eventually come home to roast not only in America but in the West as well.
Nobody is talking about the potential for a great depression but then again none of the talking heads were talking about a potential great recession in 2008 either! Our so-called political leaders absolutely do not want to confront this possibility and the last thing the financial community wants to do is start a panic so just like Sargent Schultz they know nothing, they see nothing! But as Treasury Secretary James Baker has alluded to, the two biggest problems in America is the partisan divide (being driven by race) and the debt! Unless these are addressed both issues may lead eventually to a Reign of Terror.
SO TREASURY SECRETARY YELLEN IS ADVOCATING FOR A “MINIMUM” WORLD WIDE COPORATE TAX RATE SO AS TO INSURE A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD FOR US CORPORATIONS. SHE AND BIDEN ARE ABOUT TO HIKE CORPORATE TAX RATES AND THE CONCERN IS THAT SOME MAY JUMP SHIP HERE AND TAKE THEIR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE. THE GOVERNMENT IMPOSES “MINIMUM” PRICES FOR BOTH MILK AND BOOZE AND IT TURNS OUT THAT THE CONSUMER ENDS UP PAYING THE MAXIMUM PRICE FOR BOTH!
GERMANY HAS EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN DOING THIS BUT THEIR TAX RATE IS ALREADY 30% AND BIDEN IS HINTING THAT HE MIGHT ACCEPT SOMETHING LESS THAN 28%. THIS OF COURSE ASSUMES THAT COUNTRIES WON’T CHEAT ON THIS BY SUBSIDIZING THEIR COUNTRIES BUSINESSES OR BY IMPOSING A TARIFF ON THEIR COMPANIES FOREIGN COMPETITORS WHICH GERMANY IS WELL KNOWN TO DO.
Both were attractive ladies although I thought Jackie was prettier. They were wives of a President and a future King who both came a lot in someone else’s wives. Both ladies were very superficial but very smart PR operatives. Jackie hijacked the Camelot legend creating the first royal family in America while Di invented the Queen of People’s hearts as a replacement for her ex-husbands giving his heart and future throne to someone else’s wife.
Jackie would move on to an old Greek organ and receive a big fat Greek check from her step daughter, while Di would die in a tragic auto accident in Paris. But Di only had 3 people in her marriage while apparently Jackie had many more in hers including Marilyn Monroe who sang Happy Birthday Mr President to JFK. The left fell madly in love with both ladies and their kids!
Second sons of Princes and Presidents both of whom lost their mothers in tragic auto accidents as young kids. Neither could compete with their favored older brother and in Hunter’s case he moved in on brother Beau’s widow. Both HRH and Hunter are currently married to divorced ladies. But where Hunter shits where he eats, Harry on the other hand had his own groom of the stool and has no idea what that even looks like. The Prince and the Pauper are now cashing in on there respective families fame!
Both gave interviews with CBS, which makes complete sense because they are clearly a pro-democrat TV network. Oprah lobbed both Harry and Meghan soft balls which they hit out of the park, while the three CBS morning show folks completely understood why Hunter doesn’t “remember” any of the really awful stuff he did. When is the Free Press in this country going to get back to doing their job again and just stop regurgitating the party line that they propagandize for!
So having shelled out 7 million bucks for an interview you gotta know that Oprah’s questions are going to be directed at issues that are going to get her the highest possible ratings. That of course is going to be about Harry’s family as opposed to Meghan’s family! Also the PR sympathy that it evokes is a great way to jump start your own media efforts with the 100 million bucks that Netflix and others threw at them. Did Oprah pocket the whole 7 large or did the Markle’s wet their beak?
Charges of racism driven by thoughts of suicide make for great TV but one wonders how much of this was in fact driven by her own crazy white family. Harry designs a ring from his mother’s jewelry and she fixes it. He has a foundation with his brother and then he doesn’t. They live in a palace and then move to a cottage. Then they only want to work as part time royals. Now they live in her home state and country. No Princedom for Archie and they only had the several million to live on that Princess Di gave them! Boo friggin who.
In 1973, 55 year old Bobby Riggs faced 30 year old Billie Jean King for a winner take all $100,000 tennis match. Riggs came into the match the overwhelming favorite having already whipped the court with Margaret Court’s ass previously. Riggs was a known as an avid gambler and there is some suspicion that he may have bet against himself. At the time it was the most watched sporting event on TV.
This of course begs the question of why there was only one battle when certainly the #1 ranked man and woman tennis players could have faced each other to really answer the question of which sex was the best. However at the same time the women liberations movement was pushing the ERA amendment with the hope of equal pay and a lady tennis player being massacred on the tennis court would have undercut this effort significantly!
For thousands of years Kings and Queens dominated the world’s leadership until they became so inbred that the last two standing Royals attacked each other during the Great War. The Democracies prevailed thanks in large part to the emergence of America who would become the arsenal of democracy during WW II. Beginning at the turn of the last century the USA was emerging as the world leader.
In this century America was in a rapid decline while China was emerging as their successor. The professional career politicians in both parties coupled with political dynasties including both the Kennedy, Bush and Pelosi families would do to democracy what Kaiser Wilhelm and Tsar Nicholas would do to Royalist. Some form of Dictatorship will ultimately prevail over democracy in this century whether here or elsewhere!
I remember when Kerry came back from Vietnam as an anti war activist. It made perfect sense for him to vote against authorizing the first Iraq war but then he would go on to vote for the second Iraq war because having voted against the first war he wouldn’t get elected dog catcher never mind President of the United States had Bush lite got it right! Biden voted the same way as Kerry.
So a few years ago he flys off to Iceland on a private jet to attend a climate change event only to be confronted by a local reporter about this. He responds that a person like him can’t fly commercial which created a bit of an uproar over his recent selection by Biden as his Climate Czar. No surprise then that he is spotted back on a commercial flight. When are the voters going to stop giving these political hacks a complete pass?
NO PUN BUT THE 2008 HOUSING BUBBLE COLLAPSE IN THE USA SET INTO MOTION THE COLLAPSE OF OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONAL WEAKNESSES IN THE WEST CREATING WHAT WOULD BECOME THE GREAT RECESSION. IT WOULD TAKE 20 TRILLION BUCKS OR SO TO BUY OUR WAY OUT OF WHAT IN FACT AND REALITY WAS A PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN CREATED DISASTER.
ALONG COMES THE PANDEMIC WHICH HAD A SHORTER TERM BUT STEEPER IMPACT ON WESTERN ECONOMIES THAT ADDED TRILLIONS MORE IN DEBT. THIS COUPLED WITH INCREASING TAXES WILL LIKELY LEAD TO THE TANKING OF WESTERN ECONOMIES AGAIN! WHILE THE ECONOMIC TALKING HEADS ARE ONLY DISCUSSING HIGH INFLATION OR SLOWER ECONOMIC GROWTH IN THE USA, THE EU FINANCIAL HOUSE OF CARDS WILL LIKELY SET IN MOTION THE NEXT GREAT DEPRESSION!
Both the Demmy chairmen of the Senate banking committee Chris Dodd and the House banking committee Barney Frank threatened the banks to eliminate red lining against folks with poor credit ratings which in turn created the housing bubble. The Dems and their media allies would successfully blame the big bad banks for this implosion, letting many of these debtors off the hook!
One of the consequences of lowering the vote to 18 was the takeover of college and university towns by student voters who paid no local taxes and who would move on after graduation leaving local taxpayers holding the bag. This is why the city of Evanston, IL temporary home to thousands of college students is now offering housing reparations to folks who already got them in 2008.
So what many on the left aren’t telling you is that they really want completely open borders. Somewhat ironically the country with the most closed borders is Israel who are not allowing folks back even though the UN has said they have the right of return! The Israeli’s understand full well that if they allow their Jewish Democracy to be overwhelmed by former Arab residents then that will be the end of a Jewish Supremacy there!
In America the Professional Demmy’s on the other hand completely understand that open borders equals increasing power for their party of color. This political strategy in turn drives the Dems media allies pr barrage about white supremacy! For white guys who have had it so good in America the bigger you are the harder you are going to fall. Capitalism is done here and with it America’s world leadership position, soon to be replaced by yellow supremacists.
Otherwise known as the Chinese Communist Party. I must be color blind because I don’t see them as being particularly yellow but them again I think black people are actually more brown in color! Is it even okay to put a color label on supremacists? Isn’t that inherently racist? Apparently not so much these days as the Demmy’s media allies only mention the white variety which for the increasing party of color makes complete sense.
The ex CDC head believes that the Chinese pandemic escaped from a virus lab in Wuhan but we will never know because the yellow supremacists kept the World Health Organization (WHO) out of Wuhan for over a year after their coverup began. The pro Biden media is way more focused beating up on the white supremacist in America over the 8 tragic deaths in Atlanta then they are beating up on the Yellow Supremacists in China over the 2.8 million deaths their coverup created!
Every now and then I see a movie/tv person talking about their fans. This terminology implies less of a transactional relationship than it does if you were to refer to them as a customer. Referring to them as customers would imply that the relationship was financially driven as opposed to a purely emotional connection. Now while a “fan” may see it as a personal relationship at the end of the day the “actor” has to pay the mortgage on their mansion in Beverly Hills and for the loans on their yacht and private jet.
The really successful ones are surrounded by very smart business agents and PR folks who are advising them on how to maximize their fan base so as to maximize their financial income. Because their fan base is primarily teenage somethings it makes perfect sense that their political pronouncements are going to find special appeal with this key 🔑 customer base! This is why you see so few “conservatives” at award ceremonies unless of course the host is one!
Whatever your definition of perfection is no one is ever going to pass muster. The real issue is not whether someone is perfect but rather if they have advanced the cause of humankind. Washington advanced the cause of democracy in this country, while Lincoln advanced the cause equality. Neither effort was perfect but had they attempted perfection their would have been no American experiment!
The white guy power elite has dictated what history our government driven schools were allowed to teach. They filled the land with white guy statues some of which were put on higher pedestal then they deserved. The party of color and their teachers union allies will move to correct this and we will see just how many are cut down to size or eliminated altogether.
When one gender (Blue) believes that they are superior to another gender (Black). Not sure Officer Chauvin can get a fair trial in Minneapolis given any lingering concern about what will happen to the rest of the city that is still standing if he is found innocent. This doesn’t mean that moving the trial out of Minneapolis or even Minnesota will automatically save the city or state from any further destruction.
It will be interesting to see if the prosecution brings any other evidence of racism other than the cop being white and the victim being black. Unfortunately police departments in this country tend to hire ex military who in turn are facing way more guns in the USA than they did in Iraq and Afghanistan combined! In today’s political and media environment the cop has already been convicted and white cops everywhere should be watching these proceedings very closely on Court TV.
What the NRA understands is that it is not about gun control but rather it is about gun elimination. For example the Prohibition movement began as the elimination of all booze and when that didn’t work morphed into the elimination of all saloons. When that effort succeeded it morphed again back to the elimination of all booze. As we all know that didn’t go so well unless of course you were a bootlegger!
However there are two key challenges facing gun prohibition; the first is will the Demmy’s follow the constitution written by a bunch of white guy supremacists and pass an amendment or will they find a way to overcome it or bypass it all together. The other key issue is will they have as much success taking the guns away as they did taking away the booze. With almost 400 million guns in the USA will the anti gun folks succeed or will they make things worse just like the Temperance ladies did. Maybe Biden could go door to door!
Not sure what it is about Colorado but it seems you can’t go to school, see a movie or do some grocery shopping without getting shot at or gun down. America has the best well armed militia but the most mass shootings, go figure. I remember when there was a mass shooting at a burger joint and the story was that while one burger joint broiled their burger over fire the other burger joint broiled theirs under fire.
The gun nuts are going to tell you that it’s not the guns fault and taken in the extreme it’s not the fault of the nuclear missile when it wipes out an entire city, country or planet it’s only the fault of the person pushing the button. Boy do I feel way better about that! I imagine that after we have successfully wiped out all humans from the face of the earth, that we will have finally achieved gun control in America. Not a great fix.
(A) All white Americans are supremacists. Yes___ No___
(B) The majority of white Americans are supremacists. Yes___ No___
(C) The minority of white Americans are supremacists. Yes___ No___
If you chose C then answer the following question (mark an X)
(1) There are more than 1 million white supremacists in the USA ______
(2) There are more than 10 million white supremacists in the USA ______
(3) There are more than 100 million white supremacists in the USA _____
This would be a very easy survey to conduct with just people of color and would be a good indication of where white supremacist stand especially in the longer term when white folks become the minority of folks in the USA by 2045.
My German born grandfather came to America when he was in his mid-twenties. He spoke English well but with a very heavy German accent. During WWII he was a foreman on a military production line and had the authority to stop the line when things were not correct. One of his workers reported him to the FBI claiming that my grandfather was sabotaging the line. While my grandfather would be cleared it made me wonder if this worker was perhaps Jewish or maybe had lost a son in the war.
America is a racist country but my grandfather had it way easier than Japanese immigrants because he was a white guy. Also because it was Japan that killed a couple of thousand Americans in a sneak attack at Pearl Harbor. So if someone lost a son at Pearl Harbor or in some other battle in the Pacific are they automatically racists because they hate what the Japs did to their family?
In France recently there was a stink (no pun) when a guy was found innocent of raping an eleven year old girl. Seems there is no minimum age in France for having sex with minors. While in Australia the police are recommending that folks use a consent APP before having sex which would help the cops in there rape investigations. This created another stink with the Aussie ladies!
In America recently a white guy gunned down 8 people, six of whom were Asian because he said that he had become addicted to sex. Some in the left handed media are working over time in an effort to make this look like another awful white supremacy incident but maybe it was just a very tragic “cumofsomeyoungguy” gone very wrong. As they say what goes around comes around and it really is for white guys everywhere these days. Most of this is good but some not so much. For more info on Asian sex spa’s see link https://www.seattlemag.com/article/unhappy-endings-seattles-sex-economy-boom
EIGHT DEAD, SIX OF WHOM WERE ASIAN, A REAL TRAGEDY. THE LEFT IS CLAIMING THAT THIS IS ANOTHER WHITE SUPREMACY RACISTS ATTACK BECAUSE THE “PERP” LOOKS JUST LIKE ANOTHER GUN TOTING SOUTHERN RED NECK. MAYBE IT WAS, BUT IT DOES BEG THE QUESTION OF WHY SOMEONE WHO HATED ASIANS SO MUCH WOULD HAVE STRIPPED NAKED IN FRONT OF ONE AND ALLOW THEM TO REPEATEDLY HANDLE THE HEAD HE CLEARLY DID ALL OF HIS THINKING WITH! WHAT THERE ARE NO WHITE SEX WORKERS IN ATLANTA? THIS ISN’T A RACIST ISSUE IT A GUN ISSUE!
THE LEFT IS LOOKING FOR ANY POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITIES TO BASH WHITE REPUBLICAN SUPREMACIST THESE DAYS AND BECAUSE THE LOCAL POLICE CHIEF SOLD “RACIST” T-SHIRTS ABOUT THE CHINESE VIRUS, HE SHOULD BE OFF THE CASE. WITH OVER 2.5 MILLION DEATHS FROM THE CHINESE VIRUS WHAT THE WORLD AND AMERICA NEED IS TO FOCUS ON HOW TO PREVENT ANOTHER PANDEMIC COVER UP BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT AND WHAT PENALTIES SHOULD BE IMPOSED ON THEM FOR HAVING DONE SO THIS TIME AROUND!
Saw these guys years ago and they were much better at performing sleight of hand tricks than Hiden Biden. Biden is telling everyone that he wants to rule from the center but got exactly what he wanted in his so called 1.9 trillion Covid help bill. Once again he is performing his non-partisan sleight of hand by advocating for the Senate filibuster but of course understands that it is already DOA.
The larger trick that the Demmy’s are performing is the push to continue to mail ballots to former occupants and to automatically register voters who may well be long dead before election times. This of course is a long held practice of big city Dem’s who have successfully stolen both primary and general elections over the years!
Egg or Chicken. One wonders if the original objective in splitting the atom had been to develop a carbon free energy source perhaps it may have been much better received by people. Unfortunately the original objective of splitting the atom was to kill people instead, which in turn would permanently taint nuclear energy for many.
As the world continues to shutter their nuclear power plants more people will die from climate change as a result. Even when you factor in all of the deaths from nuclear bombs and nuclear accidents climate change has still claimed many more lives. The anti nuke folks are playing a zero sum game holding nuclear energy hostage against nuclear weapons.
Never understood why anyone would want to put eggs in a cage but it certainly makes more sense to hold illegal immigrants in one. Back in the day the left handed media screamed bloody murder when Trump was doing that but when Biden does it today not so much! It is sort of like when a donkey or elephant shits in the woods and no one is there to smell it, does it still really stink?
Because the media has an 80% left leaning and 20% right leaning bias elephant shit is more likely to appear to smell way worse than donkey shit, even when the DEMS do exactly the same thing as the REPUBS. The UK “fixed” their EU open border challenges before becoming overwhelmed by them. The US has not “fixed” their open border problems and as a result we are seeing increasing quantities of donkey shit being thrown at the right for appearing to look like a bunch of white supremacist’s! And as former felony might have said too much of a good thing isn’t always a very good thing!
In today’s court of public opinion the alleged Perp is guilty until proven innocent. It appears that the standard for guilt today is if you just hurt someone’s feelings. So if you are guy and you hurt a girl’s feelings then you are a sexual harasser. If you are a white guy and you hurt a black girls feeling than you are a racist or worse a racist and sexual harasser. As the Duchess of Markle is a half black and half white woman I suppose it might come down to which half you actually hurt!.
As there are 166 million woman and 40 million black people in the USA there are over 200 million potential hurt feelings that white guys have to avoid hurting or pissing off. The 31% of the USA population who are white guys are being increasingly tagged as white supremacists. This of course is in part being driven by the increasing color divide in America.
IS STREWN WITH GOOD INTENTIONS. I REMEMBER MY FAMILY’S NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR WHO WORKED AS A BUYER FOR A CHILDRENS CLOTHES MANUFACTURER TELLING MY FATHER HOW THE GOVERNMENT WAS GOING TO REQUIRE FLAME RETARDENTS IN THE CLOTHES THEY MADE. THIS WOULD ALSO INCLUDE MATRESSES, CRIBS AND FURNITURE AS WELL. THIS NEW REQUIREMENT WAS DRIVEN IN PART BY FIRE ASSOCIATIONS, ONE OF WHOM WAS ALLEGEDLY TAKING FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS FROM FIRE RETARDENT MANUFACTURERS.
UNFORTUNATELY IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE THESE CHEMICALS WERE TURNING UP IN PEOPLE’S BLOOD AND EVEN BREAST MILK. THIS SAME ASSOCIATION EVEN WANTED TO PUT THIS STUFF INTO TV AND COMPUTER HOUSINGS. BUT THEN THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOLKS PUSHED BACK SAYING IT WOULD END UP LEACHING OUT OF LANDFILLS AND INTO THE LOCAL WATER SUPPLY. AND EVEN FIREFIGHTERS WERE CLAIMING THAT IT GAVE THEM CANCER!
Let’s say that the gold standard for who gets vaccinated first is based only on saving the most lives. The chart below would suggest that you start with the oldest group first (85+) and then go to the next most vulnerable group. This isn’t to say that there aren’t any exceptions to this rule as medical workers have a much higher exposure while having a much higher need for them to take care of the rest of us!
In the very blue State of Connecticut not only did our 48 year old Demmy US Senator get the vaccine before health care workers, we are now giving it to 20 something teachers well before older more susceptible folks. This flies in the face of my wife’s private school who have been in class from day one with almost no kids and teachers getting Covid. That of course is the power of the Teachers Union and while they will point out that teachers have gotten Covid and died from it, the question is, are even more people going to get sick or die from Covid because younger teachers got there vaccination before someone at a higher risk. Hiden Biden and the pro-demmy media will never look there!
So last year at this time the left handed Times newspapers on both coasts setup their respective Governors as a counterpoint to Trump in order to help take down the President over his piss poor performance in the handling of the pandemic. Turns out the NY straw man was fooling his voters while the CA straw man was telling his voters to stay home while he was out having dinner.
Fast forward and a year later one is facing impeachment, while the other is facing a recall. Having helped to win the election for the Demmy’s these white guy democrat governors are now expendable. Somewhat ironically The Donald may have the last word when both these guys are told Your Fired! Two fewer white men in power in blue states.
RIP Roger Mudd who was related to Doctor Mudd who set John Wilkes Booth’s leg after he assassinated Lincoln. Roger would kill any remaining hope that Teddy had at becoming President although Teddy had done most of the heavy lifting already. When you listen to Kennedy talk about America’s strengths in the 1970’s you understand just how much of that advantage we have lost over the last 50 years.
While it would be unrealistic to expect to have maintained that lead after WW2, the question becomes will America continue to decline or will it repair itself. Under the current circumstances we are mostly throwing tons of good money after tons of bad debt. This in turn will make it much more difficult to staunch the continuing decline in America. We are turning ourselves in a 2nd class world leader and a 3rd world country at the very same time.
Had the Commander of the US Fleet Admiral Richardson had his way there would not have been a first Pearl Harbor. Ironically today the U S Fleet is based in Japan and not Pearl so as to meet the newly rising naval power of China. One of the lessons of US General Billy Mitchell who would end up being court marshaled, was an attempt by him to overcome Pentagon bureaucrats resistance to the emerging threat of air power. This threat would ultimately lead to the demise of the battle ship.
Today the Chinese Navy is larger than our own but US Naval experts say that our ships are better than the Chinese. The other advantage that they point out is that we have more sailors than they do, although quantity isn’t necessarily an indication of quality or even efficiency. Now while we are not suggesting that US surface ships have not played an important role post WW2, the fact is we have had control over the sky’s. The next Pearl Harbor won’t be fought with airplanes but rather with missiles and that technological advance will likely spell the demise of all surface warships!
My father-in-law survived a pandemic, a global depression and a world war in the 1900’s and very likely his great grandkids will be facing the very same challenges over the next several years. This time around the stakes are much higher given the addition of global warming and the proliferation of nuclear ☢️ weapons. In the last century the democracies failed to hold the fascists accountable for their actions and in this century the democracies have failed to hold the Chinese communist dictators accountable for their inactions over the pandemic.
This failure will only embolden Xi to conduct his own version of the Anschluss in Hong Kong which if successful will then be followed by his own version of the Sudetenland in Taiwan 🇹🇼. Unfortunately history does repeat itself and once again a new generation has failed to learn its lessons. Our grandchildren will be paying a huge price for this failure but then it seems that the innocent always pay for the sins of the guilty!
So Princess Di dates her husband for a couple of weeks and then is shocked to learn that there were 3 of them in the marriage! Apparently the princess’ eating disorder were driven by the bonnie prince’s adultery but should Di really have expected this to be a real love match? Di was described as a wonderful mother but just how high a bar was established by Granny?
Does look like Harry is going down the same road as his Great-great Uncle Edward. The fact is that if I grew up in the Markle household I’d be thinking of jumping off the London Bridge also! When my daughter was about to give birth to our bi-racial grandson we did discuss whether he would look like his mother or father. After his birth her OB told her that he would “darken up”. Hard to see how Charlie makes it to the throne after Di and Meg but when it comes to British Royalty people are just plain crazy!
These include the regulated folks like CBS, NBC and ABC that run tv programs at certain times of day that some would record on their VCR’s. Apparently over the last 3 years they have lost half their audience to the streaming folks like NetFlix and Hulu. The argument being that folks want to watch shows when it is convenient for them with no commercial interruptions.
When I wake up early in the morning and I channel surf on the TV, I run into infomercials promoting both dildos and erection medication. This combined with cable channels running movies that would run on regulated TV after 9PM have driven my grandkids parents to ban regular TV in their homes. As for myself every other ad is a plaintiff lawyer ad which would be great my me if I sold ambulances! Otherwise not so much…
The media has become so partisan one way or the other that I understand just how easy it was for the Nazi Propaganda Minister to completely fool the German people! What is going on in America in the 2020’s reminds me of what was going on in Germany in the 1920”s. The only thing that is missing is a good ole fashion depression! That is on the way….
After 250 years Biden say our democracy is fragile. If it is he has had a big hand in why that it is. In fact the entire professional political class and their media allies in this country really don’t want you to know the truth! Regrettably that is exactly why our democracy is so fragile!
So the military in Myanmar have shutdown Facebook after the coup there and the world is appalled. But when Twitter shuts down the President of the United States there is no similar outrage! One of the founders of Salesforce has compared Facebook to cigarettes so maybe this isn’t all bad or all good.
The Big Three; Amazon, Google, and Facebook are under attack by the US Government and the result is that the founders of Amazon and Google are lowering their profiles at these companies. Very likely they are taking a page from what Congress did to Bill Gates when he was running his monopoly. The billionaires are under attack from their own party!
Prince Philly royal stud, Princess Di royal broodmare! Prince Hank clearly has some mommy issues and is being lead by the nose, which given the extent of royal in breeding might explain why he chose to marry into the Markle family. The staged photo ops at the veterans cemetery and in the woods showing off thee broodmares belly is way over the top. But taking a page from Di they understand just how well this works with the naive and gullible.
The Royal family are of course the ultimate white supremacists and in this day and age make for very easy targets. Now inspite of Hank and Meg’s claim that they left the firm, the fact is they asked to work only part time but her highness pointed out that it was a full time job only and so they were given the royal boot 🥾. One also wonders if she would have won her recent lawsuit if it had been tried in the USA.
So there is this Plus Size model who is upset at folks who are calling her pretty for a big person and she wants to be called just pretty. She isn’t all that pretty but she is definitely pretty big. Sorry folks but if you don’t want to hear this kind of shit then get off of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! Folks like her and Teigen want to be able to put whatever it is out there and not get any push back. Boo Friggin Hoo.
Alec Baldwin and his American born wife Hillary have been on and off social media for a variety of reasons and just the other day Alec told someone to go fuck themselves over a recent post about baby #7 for Baldwin. Ironic perhaps because there was apparently no sexual intercourse involved in the making of #7 as far as we know!
Ok so now we have LBGTQC. Looks like Randy Andy was getting a little too handy 🤲. The lady at The NY Times was disappointed that no democrats were asking the Gov to resign and perhaps this meant that the #metoo movement had peaked. It hasn’t the only difference here is that Cuomo is a Democrat and the media’s burden of proof is way higher for Demmy’s than for Republican!
Frankly amusing how Hillary is now weighing in on holding Randy Andy accountable when she looked the other way for her husband the cum stain kid. Even more amusing that CNN and their anchor Chris Cuomo have finally figured out that it was completely unethical to allow kid brother to interview big brother during the pandemic but they are both Democrats so let’s do what we can to get Trump out of the White House before anyone notices.
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
I’m just a dirty old man standing in front of a beautiful young lady hoping she won’t accuse me of harassment
So the Greeks want the EU to issue vaccination passports so they can safely increase the number of tourists coming into their country. This makes perfect sense because Greece is very dependent on the tourism trade to help fund their very generous retirement programs. In addition it acts as an incentive to get the Covid vaccination. This isn’t to say that folks who haven’t been vaccinated can’t visit Greece but rather they would have to quarantine first.
But neither France or Germany are thrilled with this approach as they think it is discriminatory, which in their case it would be because the PU EU has done a piss poor job of vaccinating their populations. More likely a vaccine passport would serve as a reminder of how PU the EU has done. It is interesting that the newly EU Brexitted UK has done an outstanding of vaccinations and where is the left handed media on pointing this one out! No where of course!
America’s Governor has now been accused by two pretty young things of sexual harassment and it just continues to demonstrate that you either only appoint coyote ugly types to your staff or you only meet with your younger prettier staff when in the presence of your coyote ugly staff.
Randy Andy is now calling for an independent investigation which we assume will be objectively covered by brother Chris on CNN, just like he did when covering his brother over the amazing job he did during the pandemic. One can only hope that these 2 ladies don’t get Covid and then are sent on to nursing homes in New York. But whatever the truth here is this is clearly great news for coyote ugly employment prospects.
The other day a white chick was accused of blackfishing because she had a dark tan! Apparently it is not ok for white folks to get themselves a good tan but it is ok for a couple of black guys to play a couple of white chicks! Does racial appropriation cut only one way? What about gender appropriation is that ok also? Where was the warning on this movie that it may offend some real white chicks?
But hey, Dustin Hoffman as Tootsie, Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as the Some like it hot babes, Travolta in Hairspray, Eddie Redmayne as the Danish girl, Natalie Wood as a Puerto Rican, John Wayne as Genghis Khan, Warner Oland as Charlie Chan, Eric Stonestreet as a gay guy and Neil Patrick Harris as a straight guy.
Say goodbye to Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head! No real cause for alarm here as there is no such thing as a male and female potato anyway. On the other hand there was a very easy fix as the folks that make them could have designed a removable plastic penis and vagina. Plus the little kids that play with them could have attached them to whatever version they prefer or even not attach them at all!
Generally speaking when you have a long term discriminated class of people the pendulum swings well past where it should be so; woman tennis player are paid equally as men are but for unequal work, that will all change once they allow transgender “men” with or without penises to play against them. It is also why millions of non-slaving owning white folks will be forking over trillions of dollars to non-slave owned black people.
Lately the left handed media has been talking about white supremacist’s beating up on Asian/Chinese folks because Trump called the pandemic the China virus! Pretty sure that everyone on the planet had already figured out where Wuhan was before Trump had weighed in! Doesn’t change the fact any that a few assholes on the right were harassing the wrong folks. Just like a few assholes on the left where looting and pillaging during the black lives marches although the media on the left weren’t rightly blaming the BLM leaders for this!
All of this is just a diversion because now that sleepy joe has gotten us back into the WHO what exactly is the Demmy propaganda machine saying about the millions sickened and killed by the Chinese government cover up of Covid-19 or Chinese virus or Wuhan virus or whatever you prefer to call it. The Chinese covered up the initial event and then did not let the WHO into Wuhan for over a year! Quite sure that Xi is thrilled to see the stories above focused on blaming Trump as opposed to the absolute pathetic performance of the world health organization and Xi!
At a minimum Janet Yellen is a socialist economist and at worst a Marxist one! As Fed Chair she piled on the debt after the bubble burst and she will do so again as Treasury Secretary. $15 bucks per hour minimum wage and higher corporate taxes will increase the cost on what everyone pays for the products they purchase!
On top of this she will add even more trillions to the national debt, when Biden’s partisan Covid bill finally passes. But even democrat economist and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers says of this bill “its ambition, its rejection of austerity orthodoxy and its commitment to reducing economic inequality are all admirable” confirms that the Dem’s are transferring Trump voter wealth to their own voters! Once that debt finally comes due it will have wiped out what is left of the middle class in the USA!
He may be a tiger on the golf course but apparently he’s a crash dummy on the road. There is a legend that Mrs Arnold Palmer kissed his balls before every major PGA event. I remember after picking up my bags at O’Hare, walking toward me was someone who was very familiar and as we passed the flash of recognition on my face prompted both of us to turn around. Baseball great Ted Williams nodded, smiled and then walked off.
I met Hammering Hank Aaron in Atlanta signing autographed baseballs in a Borg Warner hospitality suite and stood behind Doctor J in line at a burger joint when he was still playing B ball at UMass. There is a story about Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain exiting an airplane and when a fellow passenger asked him how the weather was up there Wilt spit on him and told him it was raining!
Any Marxist worth their salt understands that the capitalist system in the USA must be eliminated before you transform into a full blown socialist country. While socialism is finding increased acceptance in the US many still refer to themselves as liberals or even progressives! Calling yourself a Marxist or a Communist will get you nowhere in the political arena here.
In the past the Communist Party was very active in the trade union movement which is why the Catholic Church created Labor schools to combat their influence. In addition the party was very active in Hollywood which would in turn lead to the Blacklist. Today how many closet Marxist there are here is anyone’s guess but we should not think that once we evolve to becoming a socialist country that this will be the end of it!
When it comes to Debt, Joe Biden is from the go big school. Get ready for the Demmy’s to start loading it on again. Now if Biden is coming into the Presidency as a lame duck than expect him to go really big debt wise over the next 2 years so as to pass on the negative longer term consequences of this debt to future Presidents, while taking credit for fixing the pandemic etc.
The rioting on both sides is reminiscent of what happened in Germany in the 1920’s between the fascists and communists there. Throw in another Great Depression and the Right(White) and Left(Color) could explode into another Civil War. Not everyone who voted for Trump is a white supremacist who needs to be de-programmed, or de-twittered. Not everyone who voted for Biden supports a two party democracy.
So Lying Ted becomes Flying Ted for leaving a frozen waste land behind in the middle of a pandemic to vacay with his kids in sunny Mexico! CNN discovers that maybe having their News Guy Cuomo interview his brother NY Governor Cuomo wasn’t perhaps a great idea given the potential for bias! Apparently the Governor of California is telling everyone to stay home while ignoring his own mandates!
Newson is facing recall, while Cuomo is facing a federal investigation and Flying Ted is doing just that and back in Texas freezing his ass off hopefully. Frankly amazing what goes around, does come around as all three have been talked up as Presidential hopefuls! Unfortunately the voters have very short memories as clearly demonstrated by the Biden election so expect at least one to be in the mix in 2024!
Back in the day this is how FDR referred to the nicer class of folks who were keeping him from making war against the fascists! Today their great grandkids are once again taking control over the government in this country. Had their ancestors not prevented FDR from going to war sooner as opposed to later maybe there would have been 6 dead Nazi’s instead of 60 million dead.
Today these folks are appeasing both Xi and Putin and should China and Russia become a real threat will there be 6 dead or 6 billion dead this time around? While the biggest long term threat is the increasing climate change, the biggest short term threat is the increasing debt load of the Western democracies! Once the global depression takes place the sob sisters and pease societies will push for a unilateral disarmament of the West.
Very Ironic because the white union guys who had a union industry monopoly are responsible for driving their particular industry into either bankruptcy or overseas or both! As for the white guy CEO’s running these companies they raced to either move their manufacturing overseas or buy their product overseas! Why not when you could make way more profit for your company and give yourself a huge raise in the process!
So while those high paying manufacturing jobs have all but disappeared the high paying CEO’s in America have not! In fact the concentration of wealth in the USA is at an all-time high! For Americans of color this country was not as great as the white folks thought it was! For them it may not take so much to make it greater or even great. What remains to be seen is whether the career Demmy POLS continue to treat these folks as a permanent indentured servant voting class for their Party! Otherwise known as the green💰new deal.
I remember my German step grandmother saying how they loved Hitler and shaking my head in amazement. But after watching the mainstream media over the last 4 years I understand just how easy it was for Hitler to fool the naive and gullible on the right. Conversely I understand just how easy it was for Lenin to fool the naive and gullible on the left.
Unfortunately at the end of the day you can spin almost anything you wish and even those of us who read The NY Times and then watch Fox News about the very same issue are often times left scratching our heads as to what actually happened. We have to find a way to get back to fact based reporting as opposed to one sided commentary. But how we accomplish this in a highly competitive ratings based & profit driven business is beyond me!
When you consider how much money JFK spent on the world’s most expensive government PR program NASA manned flight to the moon, you understand just how screwed up our priorities have been here on earth. In the 1960’s we still had (still have) all kinds of diseases we could have eradicated. There are still places that we haven’t explored on planet earth 🌍. But as the say no Bucks, no Buck Rogers and PBS is still extolling Kennedy’s accomplishments for sending Buck to the moon and spending big, big bucks to do this!
This of course is a very easy thing to do when you make absolutely no effort to put it in some overall context. It’s got to be all good when you are not offering up any alternatives as to where else you could have invested that money! Unfortunately 80% of voters are tactical doers who don’t consider the bigger strategic picture and are easily fooled by superficial leaders like JFK, the smarter 1960’s version of today’s President Biden.
The political reality is that once the US economy tanks again the Federal government will not be bailing out US auto makers who are producing only gas guzzlers. Given this it makes perfect political sense for GM to make only EV’s by 2035. Plus the government will be granting huge tax breaks or incentives to buy their cars!
As for Norway they subsidize their electric car sales by pumping oil out of the North Sea, so less carbon in Norway and more carbon elsewhere! I visited Norway several years ago and it is a very beautiful country. In fact there are way more beautiful natural blonde blue eyed bombshell there than bleach blonde Swedish bombshells!
Recently an actress said that conservatives today are like being Jewish during the Holocaust. This of course is a completely offensive comparison much like the one a PBS person said comparing Trump to Hitler. Neither millions of accused American Fascists nor millions of accused American Bolsheviks have been murdered. But it seems the big difference is that one may not be hired again for the same job, while the other is still employed!
It goes without saying that not every American is a Fascist or a Bolshevik and that the majority of Americans are neither fascists nor bolsheviks but a very small minority are currently one or the other! But if we continue down this highly partisan road for political advantage we risk enlarging both of these extreme’s! The pandemic has been helpful in this regard, a global economic depression would be very bad!
Well that lasted less than two weeks. Biden is neither Bi-Partisan nor Moderate. In fact these days he is describing himself as a progressive. For years he described himself as a liberal whatever the hell that means exactly, but now he is a progressive whatever the hell that means exactly! Career POLS do not want the voters to know exactly where the hell they stand so liberal, conservative and now progressive, good luck figuring out what they stand for exactly!
America is swinging from one extreme to the other. The left is working overtime to drive a stake thru the devil 👿 on the Right, while projecting themselves as angels 😇 saving America for the rest of us. In the end it will be every young American who will pay the price for this!
If you believe the Demmy’s, Trump supporters can’t even get an insurrection done correctly as they were clearly outgunned by the Capital Police and the only person shot was an ex military lady who very likely knew how to use a gun. Hell the leftist mobs last year shot and killed far more people. Where were all the Trump folks who own rifles and AK-47’s?
The real story here is the incompetent job that Congress has done running their own police force, which is why they immediately shit-canned it’s leadership. At the end of the day either the right are completely incompetent or the left is once again overblowing what happened here.
Brought to America illegally by their parents. What parent doesn’t want a better life for their kids? Very likely there are other people who want to bring their kids legally to America for a better life also but because Biden will let the illegal ones jump the queue ahead of folks trying to do this legally they will just have to wait!
Some of those Dreamer folks may be located in Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria where Biden’s inept war decisions left them and their families holding the bag! Frankly amazing that in a country with the world’s most lawyers that we are left with the most illegal immigration process in the world! I have a dream also that the country gets back to a legal immigration process but am not holding my breath on that one.
My wife breast fed our 3 kids. Our daughters breast fed our 3 grandkids. Recently the UK’s NHS decided to refer to it as chest feeding in recognition of transgender mothers. The NHS had already attempted to implement a shaming policy if old ladies complained about having to share a room with a transgender person.
On the other hand the French believe that their society and republic are being threatened by these new social theories about race and gender. France is still very much a nationalistic country and viva la difference is still very important there. They still care about what’s in your underpants!
Ok the New England Patriots let Tom Brady go and he turns around and wins the Super Bowl! That is unless of course you are the mother of the Chiefs QB in which case the officials stole it for Tom et al… Either way the owners of the Pats have a very big PR problem coming off of the horrible season they just had.
So Kraft grabs a bunch of health care workers and puts them on the Pats plane to see the Super Bowl that the Pats should have been playing in had they keep Tom Brady! Say what you will about the guy he is great when it comes to krafting super duper PR fixes! But what about Belichick is his reputation for being the premier football coach now considered somewhat lesser?
How the hell Trump went from getting 46.1% of the vote in 2016 to 46.9% of the vote in 2020 after the 4 years he had as President is frankly amazing. Who knows maybe there was voter fraud on both sides of the divide! Anyway it’s not about whether there was any voter fraud but rather whether or not anyone could prove that it would have made a difference to the outcome! As we have seen in several Presidential elections over the years that looks to be an impossible standard to meet.
But as they say everything is relative and by comparison Biden looked to be a better choice for President than Trump did in spite of Biden’s track record. What we will see moving forward is Hollywood, Academia, and 80% of the media spinning the continuing partisan divide as a Republican failure as opposed to a Biden/democrat failure to seek bipartisan agreements. The white supremacy card will play very well for the party of color!
My next door neighbor was a black cop in the apartment complex we both lived in. At the time I was traveling quite a lot and I remember once my 3 year old son asking his mother when I was going to come home for a visit again. Calling home from the road late one night my wife put the phone down to answer the door. When she came back on, she told me it was our neighbor picking up a UPS package that she had accepted for him. He would let my son sit in his cop car.
A few months after leaving the area, our former neighbor came across two white teenagers necking in one of the local parks. He forced them into his car drove about a 1/2 mile, dragged the boy out of the car and shot him 7 times (having to reload his gun). He drove another 1/2 mile to an industrial park where he raped her and shot her 5 times. Would he have done the same thing had the teenagers been black? Beats me, we will never know. As far as I know he is still living in jail and his victims are still dead. What a waste of human life regardless of color.
I lived in Chicagoland for 4 years in the late 1970’s and found the midwesterners to be very open and friendly! Even then Cook County had a reputation for corruption thanks in part to the Outfit which was the most powerful Mafia family in the country! If that wasn’t bad enough my next door neighbor murdered 2 teenagers shortly after we left the area.
These days Chicago is once again the murder capital of the USA as it was during prohibition. That said I have been impressed with Lori Lightfoot’s effort to get the murder rate under control and the kids back to school there. Unfortunately one party rule makes it impossible to bring any real lasting change there.
No we are not talking about the sort of things that they said in Grumpy Old Men movie outtakes. But the fact is that if you are a cockeyed optimist you tend to under estimate threats and if you are a cockeyed pessimist you tend to over estimate threats. The important question here is it the kind of threat that you are likely to survive or not.
America would survive both Hitler and Tojo and after the War Stalin as well but of course the USA was on the way up to becoming the World Leader. Today, China is very much on the rise and can American cockeyed optimists survive should they continue to underestimate China? No question that the West thru the WHO, the WTO and the UN have done so!
I remember when my twin brother met Christine Jorgensen who used to sport one of those, and thinking at the time that while circumcision was bad enough, cutting it all off was way more than I could possibly comprehend. So among Biden’s record number of Executive Orders is one that allows for transgender folks to compete against whatever genitalia they so wish.
I remember when Renee Richards competed in Woman’s Tennis and would be ranked 20th at 45, which of course is amazing at that “old” age. But very likely explains why Martina Navratilova is asking Biden to grant the professional Tennis woman an exemption on this as a talented 20 something transgender person would likely run the table on the tennis playing folks with vagina’s!
So according to a “teacher” from the most radical city in the most leftist state in the union a white guy wearing a puffy jacket and hand me down mittens is an example of white privilege! According to the same lady she knows it when she sees it, and as a white guy I know it when I see it as well.
So using this lady’s so called “standard” is an example of black supremacy the size of someone’s genitalia? Is an example of yellow supremacy just how delicious they can make a rat or a cat or a bat taste? And what about Red Supremacy? I’ll leave that one for Elizabeth Warren to answer. But as I see it whatever color you use to describe supremacy it is very likely racist!
I remember a few years ago seeing Hal Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight. He was at the end of his career and his dentures gave him a lisp that made him difficult to understand. Twain was famous for making wise cracks and one of the things he said was “get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please”. He would have been really impressed with social media’s ability to do this!
Some years back PBS wanted him to do a program on Huck Finn but they did not want him to use the “N” word. He refused because white folks like himself needed to be reminded of their history! Frankly don’t understand why PBS asked for this as it’s right up there with being a Holocaust or Sandy Hook denier. Where does all of this end when we finally rewrite the Bible?
As America’s economic decline continues we will be seeing increasing stories about Game Stop and other desperate attempts by the masses to make some money. This happened in 1929 and again back in the irrational exuberance days when we were supposed to be transitioning from the old to the new economy.
First we had the explosion in State lotteries and then the explosion of Indian casino’s. Really pathetic to see our retired older folks buying lottery tickets or pumping quarters into slot machines. This is really not all that different when our so called “leaders” created the housing bubble or by fixing it by driving the debt to all time highs. As they say the bigger you are the harder you fall.
My mentor used to say that Ego was the biggest problem in any organization and boy was he right! In his book LOST VICTORIES Field Marshal Manstein could never convince Hitler that he was not a military strategist and as a result Manstein continued to lose one victory after another until Hitler finally fired him. After the War military historian Liddell Hart would write that Manstein was considered the ablest general by his German peers.
In his book ON THE TREADMILL TO PEARL HARBOR US Admiral Richardson said that FDR had two hobbies Stamp collecting and the US Navy. FDR sent Richardson and his ships to Pearl Harbor and Richardson told the President that was a mistake that he would be blamed for. Neither would get the blame after the day that will live in infamy as Roosevelt had already removed Richardson from command of the US Fleet in Hawaii.
Because Slick Willie the Cum Back Kid beat Gampy Bush #41 for President, George HW set up his two Bush Leaguer son’s to run for Governor of Texas and Florida so as to position one or the other to fill out what should have been his second term. As we all know idiot #43 would succeed Willie.
But because Slick Willie had won that meant that his so-called wife would eventually run for President as well! But unfortunately for America she was as good at being a politician as she apparently had been being the cum back kid’s wife, so now instead we are stuck for the next four years with The Donald. This in turn would lead according to the left leaning media to the election of Franklin Delano Biden. And so America’s decline continues.
The media darlings on the left are already pushing this one out there. In fact one of them said that because he is the most experienced person ever to be elected that he was bound to do a great job. But given his 50 year career the most difficult shot he took during the 2020 campaign was actually from his eventual VP pick who in realty accused him of being against voluntary busing when in fact he was rightly against forced busing. But as she has said that’s politics.
Things have gotten so bad in DC that FDB is ruling by executive fiat, and speaking of DC the Dem’s want to make it a State so they can have fifty- two Senators instead. Failing that they will push for making Puerto Rico a State in its place. Plan B is to make millions of new Demmy voters out of the folks that came here illegally in the next 8 years. They will also complete the work they started of getting rid of the filibuster and will attempt to kill the electoral college as well. One way or the other the Dems will rule the country for the next 20 years just like FDR/Truman did!
Otherwise known as pork barrel this is music to both Republican and Democrat sow’s ears as the Repub’s are rewarded with cash from the construction companies and the Demmy’s are rewarded with cash from the Construction Unions. You will be hearing a lot more about this from the Biden Administration!
For example the Gravina Island Bridge, commonly referred to as the “Bridge to Nowhere“, was a proposed bridge to replace the ferry that currently connects the town of Ketchikan, Alaska. The bridge was “projected” to cost $398 million! After canceling the bridge, Alaska spent more than $25 million to build the Gravina Island Highway, which would have connected with the proposed bridge. The road project went ahead because the money came from the federal government, and would otherwise have had to be returned. It has been called the “road to nowhere” by many local Alaskans.
Otherwise known as Big Pharma! In normal times being aggressively accused of price gouging but in the middle of a pandemic being hailed as the World’s savior. Just goes to show that what goes around comes around! The world will be back to whipping them again real soon but it makes you wonder if these were Government owned companies would we still be waiting for a vaccine?
Much has been said about the UK’s monopolistic government National Heathcare Services (NHS) but why then has the U.K. had the world’s highest death rate from Covid-19? More importantly why does Biden and the left want to takeover our healthcare system as well? Sorry folks but power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
As they say you can indict a ham sandwich and as Trump was the biggest ham to ever hold this office he made a very easy target for Pelosi to indict him again! The question now is will the Senate vote to remove him from an office that he no longer occupies. Pandemic, China, Russia, Iran, Climate Change, Immigrants charging the border, and a New Administration sure let’s do this one first.
The only advantage for the Republicans is that a conviction would mean that Trump could not run again for President either as a Republican or as an independent. Mitch McConnell was just re-elected for what will very likely be his last six year term. The real question for him is what is more likely going to help him become the Majority Leader in 2 years, serve up ham or tell Pelosi to stop passing chicken shit around!
Let’s say that there are 50 Republican Senators and 50 Democrat Senators. All the Democrat Senators vote for a bill to say increase the minimum wage to 15 bucks and only 1 Republican Senator votes to do this as well. The Demmy’s are going to crow that it was a bi-partisan vote to support the 15 buck minimum wage! But is that a really reasonable standard when 49 Republican Senators voted against it?
So what then is a reasonable definition of bi-partisanship? So let’s say that 26 democrats and 25 republicans voted for 15 bucks an hour is that more reasonable? Or do you need 26 democrats and 26 republicans in order to make this claim? Whatever it is I know it is not 50 democrats and 1 republican voting for 15 bucks per hour but this standard and other versions therefore will be touted by the left leaning media many times over the next 2 years at least!
No we are not talking about Janet Yellen’s sex life but rather her willingness to go big with quantitative easing debt as Fed chair which got us “out” of the big recession. You can now expect Janet to go big debt wise to get us out of the pandemic as Treasury Secretary. All well and good that folks can pay their mortgages today but in the process we are mortgaging our grandkids future in the process.
The fact is that the overwhelming bipartisan vote to change the Glass Steagall Act directly lead to the housing bubble and once again no real surprise that Biden had voted for this change. This is just like a sports team that is doing poorly but you can’t fire the owner (Congress) or fire the team (Voters) so you fire the coach (Bankers) instead. When the Great Depression hits as a result of the stock market collapsing again look for Congress (Media) to blame the bankers and capitalism!
ANY ECONOMIST WORTH THEIR SALT UNDERSTANDS WHAT SUPPLY AND DEMAND MEANS. MORE MINIMUM WAGE JOBS THAN MINIMUM WAGE WORKERS MEANS THAT EMPLOYERS ARE RAISING WAGES TO COMPETE FOR WORKERS. FEWER MINIMUM WAGE JOBS AND MORE MINIMUM WAGE WORKERS MEANS WAGES ARE STUCK AT THE MINIMUM WAGE RATE.
AS ECONOMIST JOSEPH STIGLITZ SAID RECENLTY THE MINIMUM WAGE HASN’T CHANGED EFFECTIVELY FOR 65 YEARS. BUT OF COURSE WHAT HAS CHANGED IS THE CONCENTRATION OF WEALTH AS HIGH PAYING JOBS MOVED TO CHINA WHILE AT THE SAME TIME MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE FLOODED THE COUNTRY BOTH OF WHICH MEANS A HIGHER SUPPLY OF LOWER WAGE EARNERS. IF YOU LEGALIZE THESE FOLKS AS BIDEN WISHES TO DO YOU REPRESS WAGES UNLESS YOU IMPOSE A 15 DOLLAR AN HOUR MINIMUM WAGE RATE. FOR BIDEN AND THE DEMOCRATS THIS IS A WIN/WIN AS THEY GET BOTH THE VAST MAJORITY OF VOTES FROM THESE NEW AMERICAN MINIMUM WAGE VOTERS.
