Gorgeous day at the Jersey Beach today except this:

They’re all over the place down here.

We have come a very "long way" since Reagan said that ketchup was a vegetable

We knew back then that they war had been declared against the Democrats, the liberals, and the New Deal. It was a given, and Pat Buchanan said this on CNN’s Crossfire unabashedly, that their desire was to roll back any programs which assisted the poor, helped educate the masses, gave women and minorities equal rights and footing, and rollback not just abortion laws but also the legality of contraception. I recall Michael Kinsley with his mouth open wide and thought to myself liberals don’t have aggressiveness or answers for this kind of assault.

Then, at the terminus of the Reagan presidency, I heard a speech by one Craig Fuller and thought to myself that I had never heard language used in this Fashion. It was Prototypical of what we hear today: the garbled lies masquerading as assertions of the right wing, couched in convoluted language.

We need to step it up. We need to learn how to fight dirty, to knock the underpinnings out from under them. We cannot win this fight by being nice guys, reasonable, thoughtful, reflective, philosophical, taking the long view, or any measure which is not nuclear in nature. We have allowed this to happen by saying that we are Above the fray, that the voter will know what’s right and wrong. Let me tell you, despite the fact that people knew that cigarette smoking was bad for your health since the early 20th century, (and that is a fact), cigarette commercials promoted not only The allure of smoking but that it was actually healthy for you. Despite “everybody“knowing the opposite, when I was growing up virtually everyone smoked. Perhaps Tommy Lee Jones this character in mthe film Men in Black said it best: individuals may be smart but people are stupid.

What we need to do is to get down on every level: whether it be boycotts, paid commercials which denigrate to an extreme degree the other side, demonstrations both peaceful and if provoked, violent. How many movies have you seen where the protagonist starts out as passive, and becomes aggressively insane and wins the day against the evil doers? It’s a common theme in Hollywood and it should be in our party. If you think they’re all done when they finish with abortion, you have another thing coming.

You know, these people are not particularly creative. What they do is go to established literature or historical Chronicles and draw up plans which have worked in the past, or sound great on paper. There is no question in my mind that the Trump administration, via Stephen Miller and others, went to both Mein Kampf and The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William L Shirer, took notes, and drew up a plan in a few days. And Of course it worked: The Germans were much more sophisticated and educated than Americans and the Nazis convinced the country to declare war against the world and against minorities. We saw it here after 9/11, a time when even bright progressive people became “concerned about the clerk at the 7-Eleven” because he could be a terrorist. We are prejudiced, we are also at times not too bright. It is time to take the sword out of the scabbard and get to work fixing this country. The other side did it and has had remarkable success in very few years, we are fully capable of the same, we just have to get up the guts to do it.

Philly is completely effed up from the storm.

I’ve been here 68 years and with the exception of the ice storm in 1958 or thereabouts, I have never seen anything like this. We have water flowing on our interstates as though it’s a river, and the problem is it’s not even moving that fast it’s just sitting there. I rarely watch TV with my mouth agape but I am today.

Hurricane Ida is a myth.

Those so-called maps are simply a fabrication and the photographs not only are a misrepresentation of the weather, but the implications of the earth is round is just one of the many lies that they who are in charge of the media and the Weather Establishment are trying to convince you of. The heavy winds and rain which will soon possibly, and I mean possibly, inundate the area are simple rain storms which occur In this climate. They are just trying to scare people and not only should you not evacuate but I would leave my windows open because if God doesn’t want your house to get wet it won’t get wet.

Now even if you believe in weather reports there isn’t a 100% chance of this occurring as they say it will, and you can’t be too careful when it comes to over reacting to weather reports. After all, how many times have you watched them say it’s going to rain and it doesn’t? Or that it’ll be really nice, and it isn’t? These people are wholly untrustworthy and we have reports that during the 1940s they deliberately altered the weather reports to fool the populace of countries like Germany and Japan and Italy for nefarious reasons. Often times invasions followed our bombing runs over cities which had productive factories. The Democrat administration here in the United States in those years caused many disruptions in these countries for no apparent reason other than to disturb their economies.

Well, we are not going to be fooled again. don’t believe for one minute did that storm they called Katrina actually happened, for it was a certified hoax and all the people who were in the convention center and the stadium were crisis actors. It’s all fraudulent and y’all need to wise up before it’s too late.

just in case…

Four Seasons Total Landscaping Concert Review:

https://www.inquirer.com/news/four-seasons-total-landscaping-concert-laura-jane-grace-brendan-kelly-rudy-giuliani-20210821.html


Nine months after Rudy Giuliani yelled “Don’t be ridiculous!” during a now-infamous news conference at the Northeast Philly landscaping business, ridiculous is just what Philly got on Saturday, when a life-size cardboard cutout of Giuliani crowd-surfed over punk-rock fans during a performance by musician Laura Jane Grace at the same unlikely venue.

“I’ve played Giants Stadium. I’ve played Wembley. Sang on stage with Cyndi Lauper. Written songs with Weezer. Been on stage with Joan Jett. None of that compares to this,” Grace said on stage. “I’m 40 years old and I can draw a bigger crowd than Rudy, and I have more Twitter followers than [Donald Trump], which isn’t [so bad] for a transgender high school dropout.”


About 200 people, some from as far away as North Carolina and Florida, attended the concert in Four Seasons’ gravel parking lot, where staffers set up a small stage, surrounded with shrubberies, near the company’s now-notorious garage door. Landscaping equipment, bags of rock salt, fuel tanks, wheelbarrows, and a very tall Sunoco gas station sign nearby helped set the mood, while Four Seasons trucks around the perimeter provided plenty of photo opportunities for fans

Saturday Night Special

A Saturday morning thought or two:

Did you know and were you aware that the steering wheel in the car has no effect upon the wheels? It is God who is keeping you on the road and if he decides that he doesn’t want you on the road anymore he will steer you into a pole, a tree, or off a cliff. What Man needs to realize is that there is no more cause and effect other than the Almighty‘s decisions.

And were you also aware that the theory of aerodynamics is just a theory? In fact, as the airplane taxis down the runway, increasing speed, hundreds of angels swoop down from Heaven and lift the wings of the plane. Now the reason plane crashes occur is not due to the myth of engine failure or pilot error, but that there are a sufficient number of sinners on board who souls need to be reclaimed by the Devil. Do not for one moment believe that you can make omelettes without breaking eggs.

God certainly works in mysterious ways. And if you get lost, consider that God also works in mysterious Waze.

Two statements about Afghanistan:

I am woefully ignorant with respect to the complexities of international Geopolitics, and therefore rarely if ever comment upon these issues. I rely upon better educated, more aware individuals and rarely venture commentary, for it would be founded in naïveté and lack of any true knowledge base.

However two things strike me at this time:

First, we all knew this was eventually going to happen in the year 2001. The joke used to be that people who fight in Afghanistan and blow larger rocks into smaller rocks, and nothing else ever changes.

Second…forget the second thing. I was mistaken. Thanks to DUers for correcting me.

🙃

For your Friday Night pleasure:

American genocide.

You know, it’s almost impossible to believe that Americans would commit the act of genocide against their own citizens irrespective of background. Now, I am not saying at all whatsoever that Americans are not capable of selecting various and sundry minority groups in our own country and shipping them off to gas chambers and Ovens. What I’m saying is that The grossly incompetent and amoral Il Duce wannabe former guy and several governors are complicit in plotting and executing the deaths And lifetime chronic illness en masse of their own loyal constituencies.

I understood their insanity when it was applied to only blue states because of their hatred of an electorate which often votes for Democrats. What is hard to fathom is that they are now doing the same thing, or arguably worse, to those who vote for Republicans. The difference of course, is that these Republicans will continue to vote for people who are trying to kill them. For we older folks, this is reminiscent of the Vietnam war strategy: drafting, mutilating, and killing their own sons for what was admittedly a ridiculously poorly conceived project, i.e. war.

So far, these individuals are guilty of executing approximately half a million individuals, given that perhaps 100,000 would have died anyway while we were ramping up a set of protocols to prevent the disease from spreading. At this rate, they might eventually hit 6 million, And would that be just a great campaign slogan for them to run, and run successfully, in the states in which these people can do no wrong. It is beyond mind-boggling. But then again PT Barnum said it best… Well, everything he ever said about the masses applies.
