I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

No wonder the Chinese aren’t wasting their money on iPhones. They’ve been saving their pennies to debut a Pink Floyd space opera.

    Everybody doing their own space thing, each one trying to better the other. It’s a manly pursuit for sure. I think Keb Mo and Rosanne Cash have one answer to this wasteful bullshit. We would have a spaceport on the moon if we worked together.

    Won’t be long before the worldwide arms race gets extended to beyond planet Earth. Don the Con’s already revving up his Space Force ideas. Just think of the profits the military-industrial complex can reap from this stupidity!!!

    While we are fighting about whether we should be pissing away money on a fucking wall, the Chinese are exploring space and I suspect, establishing yet more cutting edge dual use technology. Ya gotta love it.

      Of course, the Chinese, realizing Great Walls worked better in the days of the Ming Dynasty, are probably laughing their asses off at our folly.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      There’s nothing wrong with a wall per se. I can think of more than a few people I’d like to see put up against one.

      “Ready … aim. …”

      This is all about money, power, and greed. It ain’t got shit to do with border security or a fucking wall, and the dumpster and congress think we are all fools who deserve to be led. Pelosi again. Gee, she did such a great job last time. Congress is broken, and she is one of the reasons just like McConnell. The budget was supposed to be passed last July in 12 appropriation bills. The fiscal year started last October. Party leadership, both parties, have kept that from happening for 20 years and no one holds them responsible. They just keep getting re-elected. The budget is not managed and neither is the debt. SSDD.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Here’s a small example of how willfully ignorant the dumpster, and most members of congress, are about the border. They should spend a day observing operations at the Douglas and Nogales ports of entry which are sorely in need of modernizing. Governing my tweet and Fox news. Idiots.

        I’m happy Nancy Pelosi is not running for prez in 2020 but who else would you put in charge of the US House to go against Fat Nixon? She’s got more guts than Don the Con ever had and I fear some fresh-faced newbie in the role would too easily get played by Fat Nixon and Yertle the Turtle. Her quote in the NYT about being equal to the prez based on what our constitution says was priceless!!!

        • Pat O'Brien Says:

          Hakeem Jeffries? Seth Moulton? Linda Sanchez? Cheri Bustos, who Patrick should like being a past journalist and editor. Shit she even covered the night police desk. Marlia Fudge? All had the chops to do the job. Like I said in the next post’s comments Seniority should only count if your competent. The current congressional seniority system doesn’t work. Dumbest thing in when an incoming representative or senator is called a freshman and is given assignments based on seniority instead of qualifications, training, education, and experience. Is Pelosi tough. Yep. Is she Kamala Harris’s equal. Nope.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        I gotta agree. Charlie Pierce, who studies these things much more closely than I do, applauds Pelosi for keeping her little dance party (mostly) all shaking their groove thangs to the same disco beat while the Elefinks had the House. That ain’t easy. Leading Democrats makes herding cats look simple.

        And if she’s content to let this be her final round as deejay, and trains some sharp replacements, I say let her have another go at Darth Cheeto. That dude is as dumb as a soup sandwich and she’s pretty good at making him look even dumber.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Aye on the border reality. Shit, even Steve Pearce, who was a Hard Right Rudder Republican, did not want a wall since he was a House representative from Southern NM and knew the reality from the fantasy.

        Similar but quieter stories come out of the north border but are rarely discussed because Il Douche is going after brown people rather than Canadians. The Canadian border enforcement, which is a relatively recent phenomenon up there, has split communities that used to walk across “the border” for coffee ever since we stopped fighting the British.

        This is all so stupid and all based on ideology rather than necessity.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Ayuh. Remind me again how many Mexicans were on the planes that flew into the Twin Towers? Boy, we sure could’ve used a tall Wall then, que no?

        Borders are an archaic fiction. A 400-pound hacker sitting on a bed some’eres can cause a metric shit-ton more mischief than any old’ Wall-hopper, Saudi or Rooshian malchick. Just ask Il Douche.

        • Carl Duellman Says:

          Look at the chaos caused by a drone flying over that airport in London. I bet that wasn’t cheap to keep all those planes on the ground.
