Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Someone Finally Calls him Out

After the shooting Saturday aimed at kick-starting the genocide of American Jews, Pittsburgh has finally called out Pumpkin directly.

For the past three years, your words and your policies have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement. You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday’s violence is the direct culmination of your influence.

Open Letter to Pumpkin from Pittsburgh’s Jewish Leadership

They have told him not to come to Pittsburgh until he’s ready to denounce the white nationalists who are thriving under his regime.  

It’s laughable that he would ever consider doing this.  Racists and bigots are his whole base!  Just this past week, he told everyone to call him a “nationalist.”  He left off “white” for now, but give him a month.  Everything escalates with him.

Conservatives Are Destroying Humanity

No exaggeration.  Read this (long-ish) piece  (click through this panel)

We can’t even frame it for them as a national security issue, because “national security” is masculine to them, and “the environment” is feminine.

We’re literally dying of the manbox.

The Asteroid Science Is Not Settled

This would go this way if there were a wealthy obsolete industry whose ability to have one more decent quarter were affected by an asteroid.

The fact is, the carbon industries (oil, coal, and adjacent) have been fueling this massive campaign of lies about the climate to eke out a few more good quarters.  And their majority shareholders and decision-makers are old people who don’t give a f* anyway.

Putin joined in on the reasonable projection that in 50 years the only place on this planet where food can be grown will be Siberia.

Detective

With his stooge now on SCOTUS, not only can Pumpkin investigate himself, he can pardon himself.

Right Wing Power Grabs

“IOKIYAR” or “It’s OK if you are Republican” has been used for years now, to describe how all scandals that demolish the careers of non-Rethuglican pols are simply ignored when the thug has an (R) by his name.

This is about capitalists, or should I say, oligarchs, making sure that they can never be held to account for all the depredations of their untrammeled drive for more and more and more.

Enslaving women and brown people is for keeping the racist, sexist mucking forons just enough at bay so that the guillotines are not going up in every city.

Follow the money.
