    • 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 […]

      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 […]

Opinions differ.

This is why it is so vital to replace RBG with ACB:

Beard growth.

  1. This is quite amusing, and of course a mockery of pretentious men. I am afraid that some Trump people would take it seriously. The absolute insult of replacing RBG with this Phyllis Schafly with a robe, is an insult on many levels. And Republicans are gleeful about it. It is interesting to recall that Obama nominated Garland in June, 2016. Garland was a 64-year old moderate judge whom Obama unsurprisingly said was just what the Court needed. And Republicans said, no, we cannot have that, the people must decide in the upcoming election, and they fulminated about this on TV, convincing many that this was a good way to proceed.

    Barrett is in her 40’s, expected to be on the Court for 40 years, with the goal of dismantling the entire New Deal, and sending us back to the time when the social darwinists held sway. And a month before the election date, with millions of people voting now, Republicans say that we must approve her right now, “the people,” which is themselves, have decided for us, as they should, and there is no inconsistency there. Also, they need her on the Court now, in case she might have to rule as to who should be installed as President. Garland was not necessary for that, thought. In fact, Ted Cruz said that a 4-4 Court for the entire next term, would be fine. And at least two Republican senators stated that they would not confirm any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton would dare to try to appoint. So this is what Republicans think about the Supreme Court. It is, like everything else they see in this country, for them only. But instead of just saying that, like a snarling James Cagney in a gangster movie, they prefer to hide it behind this ridiculous veneer of sanctity and probity, like a thoroughly corrupt preacher who laughs at his parishioners as he counts up the day’s profits, and has an escape route already planned, with an immensely cushy new job at the end of it, supported by the people who got him his position in the first place.

  2. And now for something completely off topic.

    Dog vs. ground hammock 😆


  3. Back to somewhat on topic:

    Alternate view of Benedict Donald: He’s not a failed businessman; he’s a successful money launderer.
