Thoughts on Events the Week of August 26

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on September 2, 2021

Climbing off the pile of rocks.: It was always going to be messy. It could have been better, but then again it could have been a decade or so sooner too.

Since the first ISIS K suicide bombing, we have killed some of the ISIS terrorists with drone strikes. I take this as good news. It means we can still get to them, and that we still have some intelligence capabilities there. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that some of our intelligence is coming from the Taliban.

Not so sudden thought: What kind of moron would advocate continuing to waste $1 trillion dollars and a thousand U.S. lives a decade, other than the ones who got us into Iraq and Afghanistan in the first place, and the media, who are always finding crises to goose ratings and readership, whether they exist or not? Don’t bother to answer. It’s a rhetorical question.

NFL Football: I watched a quarter or so of several games this weekend when some starters were playing. Broadly speaking, the good teams looked pretty good, the weaker teams not so much.

The Arizona Cardinals didn’t look as good as I hoped they would. The Cleveland Browns seem to have surpassed the Cardinals, each of whom have a #1 draft pick quarterback from my beloved Oklahoma Sooners.

The Dallas Cowboys stink on ice. Of course, Dak Prescott didn’t play a down in preseason, but when he returns for the regular season…the Cowboys will stink on ice. They just stink,

That said, Dallas may still win the NFL Least because the rest of the teams in that division are so bad also. But if they don’t, Dallas should fire the coach and every underachieving player, because it will all be on them, and Jerry, of course.

Worst state: I’m gong to switch gears and give the worst state cup to Kansas. They have a raging case of white supremacy going on there, plus Mike Pompeo.
