California Governor Recall Bullshit

Sunday, May 9th, 2021

As a longtime California resident, who lived through the last recall,
this Newsom recall effort is nothing but the state Republican party
attempting to circumvent the general election in a year and a half in
Nov 2022 when Newsom is up for reelection and turnout will be
much higher than it will be for a recall election in Nov 2021. Why?
Because the Republicans see it as the only way they have a chance
to win statewide office. Instead of putting up a candidate in 2022
with ideas that might garner voters’ support, they will cost the
taxpayers 100 million+ and spend millions on negative ads at a
time when we are coming out of a pandemic and need everyone’s
efforts to rebuild the economy. Sound familiar?

Congratulations, Nomadland

This is my response in the Times to Maureen Dowd’s latest column.
She wasn’t a fan of Nomadland and neither was a friend of hers she
quoted in the column so I had to write an opposing view for the
now Oscar winning film.

(As a Hollywood writer friend of mine said after she watched
“Nomadland”: “That was not entertainment. That was Frances
McDormand having explosive diarrhea in a plastic bucket on a van.”)

You need new friends, Ms Dowd! “Nomadland” portrayed a segment
of American life many of us drive by on highways and back roads, in
parking lots and on our streets, that we never get to know.
McDormand, along with the real nomads, takes us on a journey
through a culture we otherwise would never get a chance to even
begin to understand. To me, that is art, every bit as much as
“Nashville.”

ARGO and the INSURRECTION

Sunday, March 21st, 2021

Tonight when I watched the Oscar winning picture ARGO again,
it reminded me of the recent January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the
US Capitol.

In 1979, Iranian Revolution supporters invaded the US Embassy in
Tehran and took Americans hostage. It was bloody. People died.

The Iranian insurrection mirrors the January 6 invasion of the US
Capitol by Trump supporters whose goal was to overthrow the free
and fair election of Joe Biden because Trump revolutionized his
supporters into believing the election was stolen, but stolen only in
the states Trump lost, not the states he won. It was bloody. People
died.

Allen v. Farrow

Allen v. Farrow

I made it halfway through the first episode of Allen v. Farrow before
I had to stop.

I hate, yes hate, all of them. Whatever the rest of this HBO
Documentary has to offer, I want no part of it.

Mia Farrow is a manipulator.
Woody Allen is a manipulator.

All the kids, who can keep up?

Then Dylan comes along. Then Ronan (Satchel). I’ve never witnessed
two more pathetic manipulators.

When everyone is manipulating throughout their lives and
in front of the constant cameras, the constant filming by Mia, the
quick manipulative edits, then who is living a life, a real life?

My advice:

1. Get a fucking life.
2. Shut your mouths for 1440 minutes, if possible, and stop the
constant filming and performing.
3. If any of you care about healing whatever happened, do what I
did and GET SOME HELP.
4. When your choice of house, not home, becomes a manipulation,
then where is home?

Dumb v. Stupid v. Mad

a HUMILIATING

Documentary.

Manipulator, Bobblehead and Sycophant

Manipulator, Bobblehead and Sycophant

McConnell is a spineless manipulator with no concern for the
country he helped Trump destroy for 4 years. Trump is a
vainglorious bobblehead who does not care about the country
that allowed him to inherit then steal a fortune. Graham is a
sycophant who will lick anyone’s boots in order to walk behind them
in their muddy prints to his next “I am important” television
interview. I could go on but you smell the path ahead. I do not recall,
once, during the past 4 years, when any of them made a comment or
speech about helping anyone in the country or helping the country
as a whole. Their MO is to whine and moan, obfuscate and oppose,
and hang onto power. The spin cycle of their lies and schemes never
ends.

So, Dems better take full advantage of the next 2 years. There is
nothing to lose and everything to gain. Our country, our lives and
our way of life, all hang in the balance.

Convict Trump

Tuesday, February 9th, 2021

If we do not reign in
the flaccid acceptance
of the
Insurrection
at our
Capitol,
instigated by
Donald Trump
and followed by those
who believed in him
who believed what
he told them
to do;
if we do not reign in
the Republicans
in Congress
who pretend
they were not
scared shitless
on January 6;
if we do not
hold accountable
Republican office holders
from around the country
who conspired
and gave
power winks
on
January 6,
then we deserve
all the hell
that will
rain down
on our country.

Lindsey Graham is out of Control

Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

Lindsey Graham is 65 yo. He needs to find a boyfriend or girlfriend
and stop sucking-up to Trump like a drunk schoolgirl. This is
playing out on the world stage. Is he even aware of his
behavior - flying with Trump to the border wall in Texas a few days
after he renounced him after the Insurrection? After he said he was
done with Trump in the early hours of Jan 7, 2021 while affirming the
Electoral College win for President-Elect Biden?

As President Obama described Lindsey Graham in his memoir,
he “double crosses everyone to save his own skin.”

Is he in an abusive relationship with Trump? Or a humiliating one?

Or both?

INSURRECTION ~~ JANUARY 6, 2021

ON JANUARY 6, 2021

WE HAD OURSELVES AN INSURRECTION
AND SO MANY FOLKS WERE SHOCKED
I TELL YOU
SHOCKED!

SHOCKED!

WE HAD OURSELVES AN INSURRECTION
AND A
RESURRECTION ~~ YES

KATHERINE STEWART, AUTHOR OF “THE POWER
WORSHIPPERS: INSIDE THE DANGEROUS RISE OF RELIGIOUS
NATIONALISM,” IN HER NEW YORK TIMES PIECE TODAY

ADDRESSED HOW MUCH THE INSURRECTION
HAS TO DO WITH THE RESURRECTION OF THE
DISAVOWAL OF PELAGIUS, THE 4TH/5TH CENTURY THEOLOGIAN
WHO BELIEVED THAT

“HUMAN BEINGS HAVE THE FREEDOM
TO CHOOSE HOW THEY LIVE THEIR LIVES AND THAT GRACE
COMES TO THOSE WHO DO GOOD THINGS, AS OPPOSED TO
THOSE WHO BELIEVE THE RIGHT DOCTRINES.”
