Sign of the Times

My ships keep sailing, catching fire, burning to the waterline, and sinking.

Sigh. As if this racket wasn’t tough enough already.

    Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.

    WaPo is behind a paywall but heard that somewhere or other. Maybe here.

    Yeah, fuck ’em. Imagine what Herblock et al must be thinking.

    Or, in keeping with the recent paradigm:

    the New York Times
    Is is unwise
    to ban political cartoons
    after complaints from some loons

    Burma Shave

    Can’t have that shit about Whatayahoo. Antisemitism my ass. Two state solution my ass. Censoring the Mad Dog my ass. Besides, donnie needledick said he would break a law and accept foreign information about a political opponent without calling the FBI. Idiot said on national TV that he would BREAK A LAW. So, I guess Bernie and Mayor Pete better make sure that a Mossad agent hasn’t infiltrated their campaigns.

    Speaking of burning to the waterline, I can’t help but wonder who is really shooting at those oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

    “If you want to make everyone happy … don’t be a leader … sell ice cream.” Steve Jobs

      There is some truth in what Jobs said, it sounds a bit like a military operation. “Some of you will die or be terribly wounded, but we will gain a bit of ground”.

        The generals have a saying:
        “Rather than make the first move
        it is better to wait and see.
        Rather than advance an inch
        it is better to retreat a yard.”

        Tao te Ching – Translation by Stephen Mitchell

        Too bad more of our generals didn’t read that book.

    The whole monotheism idea has been terrible from the get-go. How much blood and treasure has been wasted on the “My god can beat up your god!” baloney over the centuries?
    Now you can’t complain about the government of Israel without being branded an anti-semite? And the so-called Christians in the USA continue bleating about being forced to sell wedding cakes to gay people or paying for contraception because it’s against their religious beliefs? I’m opposed to war, but somehow I get to watch a portion of my tax money go to the Pentagon. How is that fair?
    One suggestion I’d make to these religious zealots – perhaps we should scrap the tax exempt status of your so-called religion? Once you start taxation, maybe you’ll get some representation!

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      Some really smart guy said something about superstition and religion really messing things up. Tax them. At the corporate rate.

    • Dale Says:

      Christians, Jews, and Muslims have been killing one another for centuries and they all worship the same god (different names of god though). Then take a look at Ireland during the “Troubles” – what an understatement that was – all Christians, all hating.

      • larryatcycleitalia Says:

        THAT is the problem. Nobody thinks their god is the same one the others worship. Somehow their religion is the only true faith and those who don’t believe are lesser beings that can be exterminated, often with the approval of their god.
        Bill Maher’s “Religulous” pretty much sums up my view of organized religions though I think I might be a bit less nasty about them than he is….but maybe not?

    Cheer up Patrick. I hear there is a gig open at the white house for a new press secretary. You know, when one door closes another opens and all that bullshit.

      Here’s the best send off for “Ms. Snarling Disdain” I’ve read –

      “Good. She’s an atrocious person, a nauseating liar, and I was sick to death of her country fried bullshit mixed with her tortured version of Christianity. Plus, and I’ll say it, that heifer is uglier than homemade sin. And no, I don’t feel bad commenting on her looks anymore than she feels bad when her current boss, her dad, and everyone she surrounds herself with does it to other women. She doesn’t deserve nor does she have the right to the respect and gains feminists and women’s rights activists have fought for. She doesn’t get to felate the patriarchy and then demand the protections of feminism.”

      A great governor for Arkansas….amirite?

  9. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Scowling, sneering, spinning, bullshitting and lying makes a person unattractive. It has nothing to do with her physical appearance. I’m not sure she will ever be happy or satisfied riding daddy’s coat tails, just like her soon to be ex-boss donnie dickless. So, she, and he, get what they deserve. They have no one to blame but themselves. Good luck to her finding a job, other than a fox news propagandist, after this dumpster con job blows up in their faces.
