Let’s Play “Find the Socialist,” Shall We?

I see that the “Trump right” (i.e., the nationalist left) is all up in arms today, half hooting and half aghast, at the latest Marxist abomination from the revolution’s new mascot, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.¬† From Right Scoop: The latest socialist idea from the mouth of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is to put the government in charge of basic banking to use the US Post Office to...

Try “New and Improved Mueller Report”!

Well, the Mueller report on Russian interference in the 2016 election (aka “the heavily redacted Mueller report,” in the words of the mainstream media) has been released, and, without having read one word of it, I can tell you that it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that everyone in Washington is exactly what he or she is and has always been....

Weekend Reflections: Democrats are Fun!

Remember when Hillary Clinton faked a Southern Baptist preacher intonation and accent when she was speaking to southern black audiences? Remember, for that matter, when Barack Obama, a Hawaiian-born and -raised mulatto with a Kenyan father, educated in the privileged upper echelons of “white America,” put on that same intonation when he spoke to black audiences? (I know, of course, that these days...

Mocking Freedom

Mike Lee, Republican senator from Utah, gave a speech prior to the Senate vote on the Democrats’ “Green New Deal,” in which he promised to give the proposal “the respect it deserved,” and then proceeded to invoke Aquaman and giant sea horses as the most feasible means of realizing its absurd goals. In response, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the House of Representatives’ female approximation of...

Weekend Reflections: Distorted Views

There is no point in trying to explain any of this, but perhaps by placing it all out there in some semblance of order, a coherent picture will emerge in someone’s mind — preferably not the picture that keeps trying to form in my mind as I look at all of it. Donald Trump summarily canceled sanctions his own administration had leveled against...

Random Stupidity

A few passing thoughts of a Tuesday afternoon (Limbo Standard Time), all of them — sadly but typically in these times — thoughts of stupidity: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the fastest-fading cutie in the history of passing novelties, is doing what the very stupid always do when faced with the daily refutation of all their bright ideas: making even louder declarations of even more ludicrous...

Let’s See What We Missed

A brief comment or two regarding a few stories we overlooked (i.e., happily ignored) during the Christmas holiday here in Limbo: A Texas public school teacher tried to sell her own eighth-grade female relative to a group of Moroccan men, posting photos of her online and promising the men that the girl was a virgin. Meanwhile, a popular YouTube channel aimed at children...

Weekend Reflections: Fake News, Fake Reality, Fake Art

Yesterday, I wrote about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s old shoes, always a vital topic of political discussion, inasmuch as we all need regular reminders that politics is a smelly business. Today I would like to attend to a few matters tangential to this Sin of the Golden Shoes. I see that one commenter at Right Scoop, echoing the standard sentiment of Trump supporters, took the...

Meet the New Marxist, Same as the Old Marxist

After a little tough talk (in her little girl voice), Democratic Party phenom Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez now says she will support Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker, as long as Pelosi “remains the most progressive candidate for Speaker.” This newly-elected paperweight from an “of-course-the-Dem-won” district is being given the public authority to play queen-maker by a media desperate for the next Obama, i.e., a leftist-clich√©-spouting...
