    As if Nancy Pelosi was even capable of feeling shame at this point…

    …if I had her coin and cohorts I might be shameless too. And so would you.

    Ghost,
    I’m calling bullshit!
    Some humans have principles.
    The Pelosi Monster and her rotten cohorts made their “coin”, on the back of the public. Screwing every law to their advantage and without a thought of the health of the nation. Insider trading, backroom deals, conniving and manipulating every thing.

    Before she goes to Guantanamo, she should be forced to live on the streets in an encampment for a month.

    I enjoyed much the excerpt from Chandler’s short story RED WIND. I think your choice was very deft.
    side when the big post was the “Not What America Should Look Like”

    Since the day I first read the line “Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks” I have always made a set of carving knives my wedding gift when friends got married.

    Tony Benett tributes the Sharts of San Fransisco

    The shithole that was Haiti
    It made my nostrils quail
    The odors found in Qom
    Are on another scale
    Ive been terribly unwell
    Tubercular in Qandahar
    Im going home
    To the sewer by the Bay

    I. Left. MY. Shart (Do be da doo .. Do be da doo)
    In-n-n .. San Fransisco
    Atop a pile .. of tramp feces
    To be where massive squalid stink
    Drives me halfway to the brink
    The morning logs befoul the air
    They dont care

    A stench wafts there (Do be da doo …Do be da doo)
    In-n-n .. San Fransisco
    Above the stooled and squalid STREETS
    When I come home to you, San Fransisco
    A squatting bum … WILL ..
    Make .. Me ….. Flee!

    Kevin, what are you calling bullshit on, my use of the word “might”?
    Never under estimate the power of “stolen money”, for it is in the process of wrecking an entire country and perhaps the world. Gov’t thievery is not isolated to Pelosi.

  • Kevin in PA August 1, 2020, 4:38 AM

    Ghost,
    It is your casual assurance of, “so would you” to which I object.
    I understand the power of stolen money among thieves, but not everyone is a thief.

    Kevin, I’m not going to educate you on the power of stolen money, if you are interested you’ll educate yourself. Looking at the power of stolen money as if it is simple everyday petty theft is the wrong approach. I’m not a thief but if I was gov’t employee and my supervisor offered me an extra $100 grand a year just because why should I turn him down? Then a few months later he asks for my “loyalty” when a certain matter comes up. Etc., etc. It starts small and balloons from there and 10, 20 years later you’re starting to pull in Pelosi levels of coin, and you STILL don’t consider yourself a thief. At some point a thief decides his thieving ways are justified or aren’t hurting anybody, or any number of reasons and excuses. It’s ALL theft and EVERYONE can become a thief under the right circumstances. Me too. And you. For me, I try to stay at least several steps away from any circumstance that could possibly lead to immoral behavior – that is, behavior that is harmful to me or others – that way it is difficult to be drawn in. So far, I have been successful with this method.

    Theft is theft, whether it be at the point of a gun or by majority vote.
    Never underestimate the ability of some people to rationalize their crimes.

    CML, your epic song is ringing in my ears. Damn you.

    Try this: zero tolerance for drug offenses. Shitters and urinals in the open air, down the medians of the streets. Soviet-style blockhouses for the derelict.

    Jail time for Pelosi.

    idk why I’m not in charge of everything.
