Thoughts on Events the Week of March 15

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on March 23, 2021

Another mass shooting: Robert Aaron Long shot and killed eight people in Atlanta, most of whom were Asian Americans. The killings are being investigated as a possible hate crime. Whatever Long’s motives, it’s obvious he is a raving lunatic, which begs the question how he was able to get his hands on a gun.

What the hell is wrong with us? We see so much gun violence on the news it’s not even news. When is someone going to consider that gun violence is caused by guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them and do something to keep them from having one? No gun, no shooting.

I know, I swore to myself I would write any more about gun control until something actually happened, but I am sick to the heart with this insanity.

Xenophobia runs amok: China Virus? Really? That’s the excuse for knocking down little old Asian ladies and men to the concrete pavement? How brave. How patriotic. How stupid.

It appears that the virus originated in China, but it’s not like China wanted it there. And I’m damn sure Asian Americans had nothing to do with it. They weren’t even in China. By definition, they were in America!

Some people just seem to need someone to blame and to hate. Is it to make themselves feel superior in some way? What’s superior about xenophobes who beat up little old ladies? The average IQ of Asians averages a point or two above ours. We’re lucky to have them here. And we sure don’t need to be taking it out on them, or China either, for that matter.

Leaving Afghanistan: After umpteen years of fruitless war and wasted treasure, President Biden announced we are getting ready to pull our troops off this pile of rocks. Everyone seems to be taking cover under the guise of negotiating a peace agreement with the Taliban. This is a canard. Everyone knows that the Taliban will take over the instant we leave.

I don’t give a rodent’s rectum who runs Afghanistan, so long as they don’t cause any trouble here. I only wish Obama had done this 12 year ago. Afghanistan is a pile of rocks. I am an admirer of Obama, but failure to do this was one of his two biggest mistakes.

Insurrection reduction: I was spot on when I predicted that we would hear precious little from the rioters on January 6 and their like-minded ilk once the light was shown on them. Not a peep. Crickets.

These bozos are hiding under the refrigerator because they know if the show themselves, they will be busted. Oh, they are probably jerking each other off on their right-wing social media platforms, but they are harmless there. Take down the fences.

So, now the only people preaching and condoning insurrection in public are Trump, Republican politicians, and Fox News.

Worst state: In a no brainer, I’m giving the cup to Texas this week because Congressperson Chip Roy evoked lynching during a hearing on Asian Americans and hate crimes. How tone deaf and insensitive can one bozo be? Is he trying to rival fellow Texas Congressperson Louis Gohmert for dumbest sombitch in the House? With a name like Chip, he’s got to be stupid, or he would have changed it.
