Thoughts on Events the Week of July 5

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on July 14, 2021

War, oh war, oh endless war: President Biden is drawing flack for pulling our troops off the pile of rocks that is Afghanistan by those who never saw a war they didn’t like, even those they can’t win. As Lincoln said, man clings to nothing so tightly as a bad deal. I like the way Biden is hanging tough on this and I support him all the way.

But was this really our longest war? Was it really a war at all? Since we killed bin Laden and degraded Al Qaeda many years ago, we’ve just been standing around jerking off and listening to morons like Lindsay Graham telling us things could be worse if we left. No, they couldn’t.

C-PAC Redux: Conservatives held another of their conflabs, this time in Dallas. They used to hold them in D.C., but there they stuck out like a turd in a punchbowl, though not as welcome. In Texas, they fit right in.

You’ve heard of the Easter Parade? These events are crazy parades. All the crazies line up and speak nonsense to one another. What’s his name, the disgraced former president spoke, but he could have just sent a recording of any of his speeches since November 2020. They’re all identical.

I remember my first boss at the advertising agency I went to work for in Dallas telling me it’s impossible to reason with a crazy person. You have to act crazy too. This is a lesson for Democrats. There is no way to reason with these people. They are crazy. So, we have to go crazy on them, beginning with slapping around Joe Manchin and Kyrstien Sinema and doing away with the filibuster.

Joint Chief of staff Milley: What’s his name, the disgraced former president said Joint Chief of Staff Mark Milley should resign for being intelligent, rational, and well read.

Someone should remind WHN that it’s the president who makes those decisions, not him. Also, someone should remind WHN that it was he who appointed Milley, so if he’s unhappy with the man, it’s his own fault for appointing him initially.

Jeff Bezos is soon to follow. Well, if that’s what it takes to get these obscenely rich billionaires off the planet, I’m down with it.

Worst state: We have a perfect trifecta of worst states this week, comprising: Arizona, because Paul Gosar; South Carolina, because Lindsay Graham; and Texas, because the whole damn state government.

Coming Attractions: I’ve run out of time this week, but when I return from surgery, I plan to do th0ought pieces on guns and the Supreme Court, which is about as far from supreme as you can get these days.
