      Nope, I’m not going to give any of my time to whoever this “Lizzo” creature is either.

      However I will offer a glimpse at one of Ben Franklin’s better inventions: the Glass Armonica.

    Makes me feel like Kurt Vonnegut is scripting all this from beyond the grave. I keep thinking, “This is satire right? You guys are goofin’ me?”
    “In the year 2022, Lardo was universally acknowledged as the most beautiful woman to ever walk the Earth….”

    This was a humiliation (of White People, obviously) ritual.

    That it could even occur is a humiliation. Observing it in silence is humiliation. Not being able to safely vocalise one’s immediate thoughts upon witnessing it is a humiliation.

    Therefore quietly and assiduously cultivate your garden and tend the vines upon which your grapes of wrath are grown.

    History doesn’t repeat: it rhymes. And it sure as fuck does not rap or twerk.

    They will never convince me that this tub of goo is attractive.

    • jwm October 1, 2022, 8:47 AM

      Convincing you is not the point. The point is intimidating the rubes into compliance with their narrative. Only badthinkers, would dare disagree. “How many lights, Winston?”

    NPR had like 20 minutes of commentary this morning on the Hurricane, and another 10-15 on the economy, and another similar amount on Ukraine. Amazingly, Presidunce Biden has abso-freaking-lutely squat to do with any of these stories, because he was named exactly once, by a Democrap Congressman giving him credit for prompt Florida federal relief. Imagine if Trump was President…

    TRUMP screwed the economy, TRUMP ignored the hurricane, TRUMP backstabbed Ukraine, TRUMP gaffe, TRUMP fart, TRUMP belch, TRUMP bad!!!!!

    The Dems have screwed this country and the world royally, and NPR doesn’t even acknowledge they exist! Well played, boys! If you can’t mention anything going well, blame fate!!

    Ps. You forgot to hail our stalwart allies in North Kamala!

    I’m pretty sure we all understand that the entire point and purpose of, not merely the flute-playing whale-dressed-in-shiny-spanks but EVERYTHING in our current upside down society is designed to reject the moral basis upon which said society is constructed. Marriage was among the earlier victims, dispatched shortly after the entire male/female relationship had been terminally disrupted, first by “feminism” (a/k/a hatred/envy of men) then by “gay rights.” Meanwhile, negroes were elevated to the status of American icons while actual American icons from the Revolution through the War Between the States were summarily disposed of, both in statuary and in the history books. Meanwhile, Christianity was being reviled by atheists as well as other, foreign religions (can you say Islam?) and replaced with… what? Gaia worship? Transgenderism? The termites that America has always suffered became overwhelming and now the very foundation of our nation has been so eroded that it may never recover. The old generation that remembers traditional America is dying off (and yes, that means many of us who gather here) and, having been propagandized to believe in “the population bomb”, lacks children to pass along their beliefs, or worse, neglected its duty, preferring to allow strangers in government schools to do that for them. I hope there is yet time to salvage things. I hope

    Normal people know what to do and will continue to do so, and everything about the abnormal people will continue to be ignored. When push comes to shove they will then show everyone what they are made of which is just so much hot air.

    The root here is the gov’t and the media and as long as both make a profit from their actions they will continue. However, the media is paid by the gov’t and the gov’t makes it money from crime. Eventually the criminal behavior will not last indefinitely. Ignore it and stay out of it’s way the best you can and let it die on the vine.
