Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Trump ♥ Moore

So!  Trump has endorsed Roy Moore.  Not really surprising.  Of course it means that his staff and press secretary were lying, but that’s hardly news.

Nazis and child molesters: new but unsurprising additions to the roster of IOKIYAR.

Maddow’s examples seem very tame by 2017 “standards”.

Anyway.  F* them all and f* anyone who can support them in any way.

Done.

Tom Tomorrow: Documentarian

That’s all there is now since parody is no longer possible.

Take a Modeling Job

Today’s post is over at Safer Computing, about how to apply common sense before dropping a lot of cash on information security technology.  Do a little threat modeling to be sure you know what you’re protecting and what it should be worth to protect.

Don’t do this. Just don’t.

Jewy Robocalls

Your 2017 GOP, ladies and gentlemen!

The NYTimes has a story today about robocalls going to Alabama voters.  A message from a “Bernie Bernstein” claiming in a nasal vaguely northeastern accent to be a reporter for the Washington Post.  “Bernie” then claims to be offering $5,000-7,000 to women between 54 and 57 years old for dirt on Roy Moore.  Which, he goes on to say, they will not bother to check.

Of course, no such person as Bernie Bernstein works for the WP, nor would any journalist keep their job after making an offer like that.  The NYT’s take on this seems to be that the campaign is kind of clumsy and low on credibility.  But that’s hardly the point, is it?  First, it’s only going to get better.  But more important, this is absolutely a page from Hitler’s 1930’s playbook.  The reason for this concerted and rather well-funded campaign is to make sure that The Jews are well-marked as the Enemy of a good ol’ boy like Moore.  And as the financial policies of the Rethuglicans continue to victimize the 99.8%, they need to keep the drumbeat going for scapegoating everyone who the uneducated voters in the yee-haw states have been raised to hate.  Blacks, Muslims, immigrants, Jews.

Time to go?

Bring It On

Roy Moore is accused by… well… it’s closing in on a dozen women of hitting on molesting them back when they were 14 to 16 years old.

Even Mitch McConnell, not your paragon of principle on the best of days, has said Moore should step down rather than continue his campaign for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.  But Roy is holding firm

Yeah.  Good way to word that, Roy.  In case you have forgotten, “Bring It On” is the title of a floofy Y2K teen movie about rival groups of cheerleaders.

These girls might be a little long in the tooth for Judge Moore’s tastes… but you get the idea.

Roy’s campaign website, by the way, is called “Alabama deserves Moore.”  I am not having an easy time disagreeing with that.
