Round and Round

Within hours of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, the machinery of U.S. federal politics was churning on in all its glory — or rather, gory.  Mitch McConnell was insisting that the senate would vote on Trump’s nominee to replace Ginsburg, although he would of course do everything in his power to prevent the same thing from happening if a justice died so close to...

Learning Your Place

Perspective is everything, some insist. In any case, this bromide is never more applicable than in a time of universal enslavement. For then, perspective is indeed “everything” — the perspective of an ant looking up at the godlike shoes clomping around its tiny world, capriciously determining its fate at their leisure, almost absentmindedly, and certainly without a moment’s serious consideration of any ant’s...

Capitalizing on Injustice

Before the start of an NFL game Thursday night in Kansas City, players made a league-endorsed political statement by standing arm-in-arm across the field in support of racial justice, or against racial injustice, or whatever namby-pamby sensitivity-cops nonsense they thought they were representing. It’s a wonder the Kansas City team, called the (euphemized for children) “Native American Tribal Leaders,” had the gall to...

Sacrificing Virgins in the Digital Age

Twitter recently limited the user privileges of Donald Trump Jr., for the peculiar “offense” of citing a popular video (which I have not seen) in which a group of Houston doctors claim to have used hydroxychloroquine successfully in treating COVID-19. The social media company — which in my opinion ought to have every legal right to make such a decision — defended its...

Reflections: Caught With One’s Pants Down

Given the continuous coronavirus fearmongering and demands for lockdowns and mask mandates, combined with endless expert “advisories” declaring that there can be no return to even some parts of normal life on this planet until there is a COVID-19 vaccine, common sense dictates that we — I mean all of us on Earth — are about to be confronted with new universal compulsory...

The Rule of the Experts, Part Four

Experts, contrary to the popular connotation of that word, are simplifiers. More precisely, at their worst, which is to say at their most expert, they are simplistic people who, for the sake of their egos or to assuage their insecurities (or both), carefully and systematically evade the unknown — which is to say almost everything — by reducing the complexity of the cosmos...

Never saw that coming! (snicker)

So Donald the Baby-Brained Demagogue has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, one of the leading cretins responsible for foisting his moronic dung heap of a presidency upon a once-great nation that will have finished its last writhing moments of life by the time he is carted out of the White House and back to the trash-TV moral dumpster where he belongs. Gee,...

Headlines To Die For

Some prominent headlines I read today during a five-minute scan of the mainstream news media: “U.S. coronavirus death toll tops 130,000 amid surge” “Fauci: Avg. patient age has dropped by 15 years” “Atlanta mayor tests positive for coronavirus” “239 Experts With One Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne” “35-year-old bodybuilder with COVID-19 talks about near-death experience” “Formerly Robust Athlete Loses More Than 60...

“But Hillary!”

A quick recap of recent progress in swamp-draining. Over the past two months, Donald Trump, the President of the United States, who actually had the personal authority to make the decisions at issue, has: signed the most superfluous and bankrupting spending bills in U.S. history, in response to an economic “crisis” directly and deliberately precipitated by his own and his party’s destructive “emergency”...
