    • Here was my neighborhood last night
      Because the family of a mentally ill Philadelphia man holding a knife called for an ambulance, and the cops showed up. They claim he “charged” them and they shot and killed him. The mental health unit is a pilot program and isn’t paid to work on the weekends. Protesters didn’t do this, looters did. (Maybe … Continue reading Here was my neighborhood last nigh […]

    • Interview Part 2: Politics Thru Climate Change
      This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer. This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at ianwelsh.net). For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if […]

About school reopening…

… it appears we have the thinking behind it:

I’m going to make a prediction. The day we get a report of a classroom of second graders in grief counseling because pool testing shows that one of them had the virus that killed Mrs. Taylor is the day all the schools in America shut down again, plunging the economy into an abyss.

Maybe sooner as all the parents out there start to realize what this stupid, non science based mandate is going to do to us. And once it’s in progress, it will only add to the cases (that we can no longer follow) and will become an unstoppable force of its own.

You gotta wonder why Republicans are letting this happen. Are they expecting to gain from this somehow?

Too much pornhub?

I can understand how a congressional candidate might have come to this conclusion:

After all, he’s a guy. Now we know what his category is. He’s wrong about why white women join Black Lives Matter. The first thing on their minds is not FORNICATION. I’m not even going to speculate where FORNICATION ranks on their priority lists. Probably it’s like any other interaction. She goes to a protest to stand up for justice, she spends time getting to know people and hearing their stories, she commits to doing something about it, she learns more about implicit bias and educating her friends, she notices he’s got cute buns, who knows, it’s not my business.

I just find it interesting that Mr Miller goes there first.


But how does one understand this from Jim Bakker?:

So, Jim assumes that transgender teachers are pedophiles? I thought they screened pedophilia out in the job interview and FBI background check. But wait! There’s more.

Which trans are we talking about here? Male to female or female to male? Are we referring to a Miss Saigon kind thing or a constructed penis kind of thing? Who is doing what to whom?

Honestly, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it because, you know, not my business. But apparently Bakker does. Plus, I’m still freaked out about the pedophilia aspect of this more than how it is accomplished.

I thought Jim was into getting it on with his secretary in a forced threesome. Huh. Tastes change I guess.

Bakker knows his audience. They’re elderly ladies who think certain sex acts are disgusting but they’re not too discriminating about it. Anal sex with a homosexual dimension to it is repulsive while the possibility that it is performed between two heterosexual married people who are consenting adults fries their circuitry. They really can’t comprehend it. (Trust me, I’ve had this conversation). It’s not that anal sex between husband and wife isn’t equally disgusting to them. It’s that it just doesn’t happen in their universe.

Anyway, it’s wildly entertaining to watch this. I mean, watch how sex is used by political and religious figures to move public opinion. They aren’t my categories but it’s interesting to see what other people are thinking.

What are my categories?

None of your business.
