Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

It’s Wearing on Me

I find myself feeling a deep dislike for all supporters of our flat-out fascist Federal regime now.  These are people I want nothing to do with anymore.  Financially-privileged white suburbanites.  Rural #MAGAs.  The entire states of Indiana, South Dakota and any of those that ever styled themselves part of the CSA.

I don’t want to use the word “hate” for what I feel, but it’s functionally indistinguishable.  I have reached the point where I do not find it useful or even possible to make a distinction between a “person who supports a policy like that” and the policy itself.  Empathy for such people is beyond my reach.  And I don’t even feel motivated to try.


As for the people of color, the queer, the women, the disabled and the immigrants who are trapped geographically in amongst all that human fungus around them… I want to work now on shielding them from the worst of it and on rescuing them from it where possible.

Concentration Camps

My brother voted for this.

Kids being stripped from their parents and put in camps.

He once joked to me that he would not buy a Mercedes because, and I quote, he “could not own a car where he might be related to the seat-covers.”  Haha.  Many of us have family members who just as inexplicably supported this fascist.

NB: not even Hitler got from taking power to camps in under 18 months.

Roseanne Self-Destructs

I was grudgingly impressed that her apology – aside from using the “joke” excuse – was close to an actual apology.  She must have known she’d pretty well screwed the pooch.

Of course, you have to wonder about ABC’s judgment in the first place, for engaging with this:

Krugman Hits a Grand Slam

In five simple tweets, Nobel economist Paul Krugman has laid bare the true nature of the Rethuglicans and all of their fellow RWNJs.

One key lesson of 2017 was that everything liberals have said about right-wing hypocrisy was true — in fact understated 1/

The religious right claimed to care about moral values, but is fine with a guy who cheats on his third wife with a porn star; it was never about morality, it was about patriarchal privilege 2/

The flag-waving super-patriotic right is fine with people who colluded with Russia, and in fact is eager to help in the coverup, because it was never about patriotism, just about power 3/

The economic right is fine with policies that actively discriminate against clean energy in favor of coal, because it was never about free markets, it was about rewarding special interests 4/

And of course the law-and-order right is fine with demonizing and trying to destroy the careers of dedicated law enforcement officials if the pursuit of justice happens to threaten Republicans 5/

Whatever propaganda they are selling you today, look at these handy points to see through to the truth.

Shithole Countries

In a meeting about immigration today, our so-called president asked,

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”

He was referring to African countries and Haiti.  Then he expressed the thought that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway.  You know, good Aryan stock.

This is not a crappy movie or TV series about a fantasy  Nazi takeover of the US.  This is an actual Nazi that our racist minority supported.  Just enough to make the Russian hack of our election systems look like a plausible result.

We have been invaded.  We’re at war, and we’re not yet bothering to fight.
