  Who's next-- Dudley Doright and Nell?  Shameful shit!

Monday, November 6, 2017


    Odd title for a blog I know, but what the hell is with those pearls?
She reminds me of June Cleaver in that show "Leave it To Beaver",
that was on TV about 40 years ago. Whoosh!
    How have you been?  The news cycle over the past year
reminds me of the movie "Groundhog Day".  A repetitive cycle.
The locations may change, but, for the most part, it's the same schtick,
day after day.
  But Sarah did teach me a song while we were online for the "Values
Voters Summit".  Here's the first verse:

"I don't care if it rains or freezes
As long as I got my plastic Jesus
Sitting on the dashboard of my car".

   Sorry, just couldn't help myself.  The tune came from the movie
"Cool Hand Luke". That's where I first heard it. It's a catchy little
ditty, isn't it?  I used it here primarily because the current
administration is overflowing with some absolutely humorless
twits.  I rather imagine that the conservative Christians that
comprise the "values Voters Summit" would have me tossed for
blasphemy or some other nefarious infraction of decorum.  This
particular group can best be described by the term : "Christian
In Name Only".   From what I have been able to decipher this
group has more to do with exerting power and control than it
has to do with faith. 
  In other news there was a mass shooting at a church down in
Texas yesterday. Twenty five people is the number I heard. The
members of the press are, once again, speculating for a motive.
They always seem to be looking for the simplest explanation
when one of these events takes place. There isn't one.

    But Kim Davis was so offended that the Harv only gave
her a less than casual glance, that she took her anti-gay
shtick on the road to Romania.  Pious little thing is still
clamoring for her ten seconds of fame.  I am not quite
sure why the press thinks the general public has some
pressing desire to hear of the exploits of those always
on the fringe of society.  Not much interested in the
mutterings of Bannon and his ilk either.
  I used to really enjoy reading the newspaper, but these days
I might be able to locate only one or two stories a day
that I might get past the headline.  It all seems so terribly
repetitive and trite.  And the Donald is such a bore.
One of the better quotes I have seen is that "He has
two brain cells that have never met".  Pretty accurate
assessment.  Shit, we don't have to worry about
"fake news", cause he shows us what a dolt he is each
time he opens his mouth.  It's bad enough trying
to read one of his speeches, so not having to listen to
him is an absolute blessing.  I understand that the first wife,
Ivana, has just written some sort of book on parenting.
Gee, her claim to fame is raising Beavis and Butthead,
and the daughter that claims to be a beacon to the
empowerment of women everywhere.  There's some of that
real celebrity fame for you. Ivanka did some interview in
the Oct 16th edition of "US" magazine and even a twelve
year old wouldn't be fooled by that rubbish.  Vapid is the
word I seem to be groping for.
   And if Richard Spenser loves that statue of Robert E. Lee
so damn much  maybe the city of Charlottseville should
just uproot it and deliver it to his house.  Everyone likes
lawn ornaments, don't they? Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't
this white supremacy thing tank in Germany during the last
century.  And whee, pray tell, do they plan on erecting
this ultra white "field of dreams"?  Doesn't scan in this
country, so maybe they need to be on the lookout for
some island that is for sale.  We'll send twinkies.
   See, the press is not the only outlet that can be glib.
And poor Micth McConnell always looks like he's
still feeling the effects of his exam at the proctoligist.
Coffee time 

I'm back

   "To Kill A Mockingbird" has been banned again.  This
time it's from a school district down in Miss.  The reason
given for this was that it's content was "upsetting." What
planet are these people on?  Look out your window, putz.
The Donald is still having his spat with the NFL. I will
take the silent kneeling of a citizen over the obnoxious
bullshit on Fox News any old day of the week.  He's
quite oblivious to the reasoning for the gesture, anyway.
