Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

“Elitist”

This is a very sad story showing the state of the polity.

No matter how much information we give you, you would never write a fair piece,” Liz Bowman, a spokeswoman for the E.P.A., said in an email. “The only thing inappropriate and biased is your continued fixation on writing elitist clickbait trying to attack qualified professionals committed to serving their country.

“Elitist” is a dog-whistle to the morons who make up the Pumpkin  moron’s base.  It serves to remind them that intellect and reality-based inquiry are anathema, and anyone who engages is such subversion should be exiled.

On This Day

On this day in 1859, John Brown led a raid on Harper’s Ferry, trying to incite a slave revolt and ultimately destroy slavery in this country.

Defeated and on his way to be executed for treason, he handed a guard a note

I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood.

He (fairly easily) predicted the Civil War.  But the racism and white privilege that underpinned slavery lives on one and a half centuries later.  I hope Brown’s prediction has run its course.  I hope so, but I do not think so.

 

Who Needs $10 Million?

Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine, has taken out a full page ad in this Sunday’s WaPo and offered…

$10 MILLION FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE IMPEACHMENT AND REMOVAL FROM OFFICE OF DONALD J. TRUMP.

Now the New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz is joking that Pumpkin might take Flynt up on it.

Sounds funny, but wait a minute.  Pumpkin has two problems this could solve in one go: he hates the job he’s currently sucking at so badly, and he’s broke.  None of his businesses is making money, and he’s totally underwater to the Russian Mob no Government no Mob… who cares — same difference.

 

Counter-Earth Tax Policy

It seems so strange!

IQ Test

Pumpkin has challenged his Secretary of State to an IQ test challenge.  On one hand, it seems a slam dunk that Tillerson could beat Pumpkin at this.  Heck, an actual pumpkin might win.

On the other hand, maybe Tillerson is not that intelligent.  He still works there, after all.

I’m most disappointed in Mensa for offering to host this, and dignifying it above the level of the 5th-grade playground pissing contest that it is.
