Political discourse.

I wonder if maybe last years’ flop movie, Ghost Busters, the one of the female cast — which was touted as a harbinger or a rallying cry for the Woman to get into the White House… (see Ellen Degeneres’s show promotion on “Get Out Your Woman Card?) … maybe wasn’t a year late?  Or, yo

The National Review on the Alex Jones interview with Megyn Kelly — a staple interview  over the past decade or two on any talk radio show that wants to delve for a minute or two into conspiranoia (moving past your George Noorys and including, say, the “always wanting a kook on the air” Alan Colmes —

I see a flash on the teevee.  “Kevin Durant’s rode to a Championship.”  I’m vaguely bemused.  Here is Kevin Durant’s rode to a Championship. He is drafted number two over-all to a team called the Seattle Sonics, which is a franchise that was recently purchased by an owner who all but announc

I.  Scotland holds a vote on whether to secede from the United Kingdom.  With the whole of the British political establishment working overtime to defeat the measure, Scotland rejects the measure narrowly, arguing for a rocky future where dreams of nationhood are not likely to be appeased. II.  After two years of holding

After all the gnashing of teeth I’m reading on the sheer ineptness of Jeremy Corbyn in the New Statesman and other periodicals of the left parliament … Winner.  Sort of. Actually I have to wonder about Theresa May.  We’ve had one election after another of great disappointment for the status quo.  Why wo

The History of the Wonder Woman look. The Dietary Supplement ads that turned infowars into the media conglomerate it is today. Kansas Republicans raise taxes. Question of the Day.

In 1970, Oregon Governor boasted up Vortex, a concert festival, to detract hippies from yippies, lowering the stakes of a planned protest against an American Legion event. This year, Portland mayor Ted Wheeler made a botched thought of trying to get rid of some permits for a meeting of an “alt right” group of pr

Greg Gianforte really hates the Guardian.  Because they ask questions to him.  I like the first comment: “Body Slam” ???? This video is inconclusive regarding a Body Slam ?! It looks more like a little tussle. Sure.  Depends on what your definition of “body slam” is? I’m wondering what the d

Ugh. Who Radicalized Jeremy Christian? Alt-Right Extremists Rush to Distance Themselves From MAX Slaying Suspect. I actually have some intellectual support for their claim — “he’s not one of us — we worked to ditch him from our groups, etc”, all he is is some deeply disturbed troubled guy, ther

I.  We see the Larouche org making hay about the various mechanitions of the “Deep State” against the President Trump.  Hailing recent comments deriding the “coup” from Robert Parry, Dennis Kucinich, and Daniel McCarthy — and here we must note McCarthy’s warning, which is favorably quot

Apparently, there’s a bit of a hub ub over “13 Reasons Why”, which is a book that deals with teenage suicide — and now more importantly a tv (or rather screen, see: Netflix) series adapting said book.  And so goes a great new moral panic. And a perceived spike in teen suicide is being placed […

So... An explosion that appeared to be a suicide bombing killed at least 22 people on Monday night and wounded 59 others at an Ariana Grande concert filled with adoring adolescent fans, in what the police were treating as a terrorist attack. Ariana Grande.  The previous terrorist attack from an al Qaeda affiliation of Isla

The last time I heard someone discussing Chris Cornell, it was someone clearly not a fan — or at least apt to mock the post- Soundgarden career and thinking Audioslave sucks eggs. What’d be interesting is if I caught up with the man and found him… eulogizing in whatever manner a man he clearly cared [̷

What’s going on with Thailand’s king? Why we know Intelligence is out to destroy Trump. Woke and gnosticism. Yes.  But can this Montana Democrat win? When there was Black support for “Law and Order”… What is the Republican health care plan? Interview with window breaking political hooliganR

Inspiring words from the Commander in Chief. “No politician in history . . . has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.” “Over the course of your life, you’ll find things are not always fair.  Thing

Kind of a yin and yang…   Yes.  One’s a history of Marvel Comics, the other’s an oral history of Fantagraphics. Two different conceptions of just what is it “Comic Books”, companies in juts and starts making their way… It’s worthwhile putting these two books next to each other, an

Should we Tear Down the Joan of Arc sculpture? Middle School Kid liked this gun, gets suspended. In the grand tradition of Robert Crumb sticking an ice pick in Fritz the Cat after release of the movie, the Cartoonist behind Pepe kills him off.

The message was a little muddled, in the singing of “na na na” on the House floor at the passing of the “Obamacare“… Sometimes reported as Republicans singing “na na na” to Obama’s signature domestic achievement, it was actually Democrats making a weird reference to the Republ

So.  What lessons can be learned for American politics from the French electoral landslide of Emmanuel Macron over Marine Le Penn? A defacto redo of the whole Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump race, right, except moved to France? And with a 39 year old man in the role of the long tenured woman… With the establishm

A depressing Democratic Party Town Hall in upscale Florida. Code Pink protesters laughing at Jeff Sessions. Sniping at Jimmy Kimmel for his heartfelt story about surgery for his son.

Hm. Across the street, friends Josh Elms and Ryan Falck sported red scarves and carried small Soviet flags as they prepared to march in support of workers’ rights.

Sure.  There are probably more important things in these articles in the liberal magazine Mother Jones to engage in, but I’m struck by something… Item #1:  A year earlier, the 39-year-old (who prefers to spell his name without capital letters) had been driving a bus in Atlanta. Then his life took a hard left t

Jon Ossoff, Democrat of Georgia, attempts to get to 50 percent plus one in tomorrow’s special election for a Congressional seat once held by Newt Gingrich.

From the end of a largely uninteresting and banal New Yorker article on the evolution of Stephen Colbert at his CBS gig, and broader and narrower pitfalls and implications therein.
