DOES HUMOR BELONG IN MUSIC?

   Good afternoon on what is commonly referred to as
Super Bowl Sunday.  FYI, I do not partake.  I haven't
watched a Super Bowl for the last 30 years.  It just
doesn't interest me, so all the present hoopla in the press
is wasted on yours truly.  Mr. Squiggee is, as they say
an entirely different kettle of fish.  For what it's worth,
it just bores me,  and the obligatory nonsense with the half
time show and that incessant whining about the national
anthem, is just a bit much.
   The latest brouhaha in the press is the bit about the Gov.
of Va. This has been the central focus of the press for the
last couple of days. It's also ambush journalism, and
unfortunately this less than stellar effort at corroborating
a story before publishing it, is doing nothing for the
credibility of many of these publications. A very rash and
quick rush to judgment before all facts are known.  A
story that is 35 years old and from very questionable sources.
The comments section in many newspapers will show you
that many of our fellow citizens seem to take all of this at
face value, rather than question the obvious lapses in  fact
finding.  Too many Sarah Sanders wannabes.
   Did you catch that horse's ass stating that God sent us
Donald Trump to save America? Oh, and that crack about
the government shutdown making us better people.  You
just can't make this shit up.  I digress, sorry.
   In the mail this week was a flyer from ( drum roll, please)
Judicial Watch., which is an ultra conservative propaganda
outfit, much like the "Faith and Freedom Coalition". Among
the luminaries whose names appear in these tracts, are Newt
Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Mike Pence,  and numerous other
Fox news charmers.  And we mustn't forget dar little Sarah Palin
and Ben ( slavery was an immigration platform) Carson
They,too, advance the notion that(Yes indeedy) the Trumpster
is the proverbial Second Comingof God Almighty.
   Little did they know that they had mistakenly sent this
tract to one of those ne'er do well heathens  that is not of
the same cloth.  In all probability I would be one of those
that would be greeted with fire and brimstone fury. And they
would probably brand me with a "666" on my worthless
forehead  and be forever condemned.  It's 'really
rather difficult to read these little tracts, primarily because
they always seem to be having major issues with  coherent
thought.   It goes from one conspiracy to another. The also
list the following groups as some sort of affiliates:
Gateway Pundit, Breibart, and Capital Research Center.
Of course they're also requesting donations from "Real
American Patriots" to help smite the wicked and
condemn those nasty ass  skeptics to a long sentence in
purgatory.  They throw in Jerry Falwell and Franklin Graham
on the tail end of this pamphlet, just to let you know that
their God can certainly put your bucks to good use.
Cynical little shit, ain't I?
    In the background we are listening to an audio book.
It's the unabridged version of Sycamore Row by John
Grisham.  It's 16 CD's, so it's a nice long book.  You
can listen to these sorts of books as you go about your
daily agenda around the house.  Great for ones imagination,
too.  Time to make some coffee.

7:06 PM

   I shall be back with more in the AM.  See you then.
