Noted in Passing: “The words of the prophets are written on the bumperstrips….”

This brand new political nightmare was hatched in the dark diseased brain-in-a-jar of AD commenter Snakepit Kansas. Thanks, Snakepit.

    Trouble is, those two are both straight (as far as we know) white males. How about:

    Buttigieg/Lightfoot 2024
    Make America Gay Again!

    JWM, Great minds think alike.
    That is exactly what came to my mind.

    Do not let this be a choice, because some (probably a lot of) moron(s) will cast a vote for them.
    Frankly, if given the choice I would vote for Sweet Meteor o’Death over the lefty Milley/Fauci ticket.

    Maybe we should take a survey.

    PA Cat said, “those two are both straight (as far as we know) white males.”

    We know this how? Because I have my doubts about both of them, especially the woke general. Who else would push the fag show military program?

  • PA Cat August 21, 2021, 9:15 AM

    Kevin in PA– Milley’s wokeness could come from the fact that he did his undergrad degree at the same university that gave us Moochelle Obama– y’know, Woodrow Wilson’s old school. He wrote his senior thesis in political science, titled “A Critical Analysis of Revolutionary Guerrilla Organization in Theory and Practice.”
    According to his bio, he’s married to a (presumed) woman named Hollyanne, and they have two children. Of course that doesn’t keep him from being a switch-hitter.

    Fauci: I play a doctor on tv.
    Milley: I play a general on tv.

    Oh groan. Wish I could unsee that (but it is funnier n hell).

    I’m an advocate of the short rope tall tree syndrome of all erected & apportioned offals. Those things what go whoosh when you pull onna bang hammer cost money and there’s a shortage of em as well as comrade “dumber than a post” has outlawed imports of pills & things what go bang & whoosh from Ruskie land. Ropes can be reused without much effort and the dancing observed is hilarious…Just sayin.

    Been done.
    From 2016. “Weiner/Holder”.

    As an aside, I submitted my paperwork for my Firearms License at my interview with the town Police, finally! Covid you see delayed the town police from scheduling all interviews for firearms licenses.
    ( I wonder if criminals have to schedule their crimes and/or arrests?)
    I paid my $100 license fee, and was fingerprinted, then the officer examined my paperwork; one of the ‘good character’ letters was rejected, from my primary care doctor, because “they don’t except doctors notes”. Well, he is someone I’ve know for over twenty years and I have no other friends I’ve know as long living locally since (oddly) all my other close friends have moved out of state as soon as they retired. And he specifically attested that he has known me very well for a long time and that I had no medical or mental impairment that would prevent me from being a responsible gun owner.
    “Nope. Doctor. Not accepted.”
    Then there was the matter of residency. I provided my property tax bill, recent gas and electric utility bills, water and sewer bill.
    “Not enough. We like to see a mortgage payment or rent receipt”.
    But I own the house and paid off the mortgage long ago?
    “Well, go down to Town Hall and get a letter stating that you are a registered voter, we like to see that”.

    So I go down to the Town Hall and into the Town Clerks office. Explained what I wanted.
    “Nope, we have you listed as inactive on the voter list’.
    Gee, I voted in the last election ( and ever other election, plus worked the polls last year).
    “You probably didn’t return the Town Census form, we’ll drop you for that”. “But write a letter to the Clerk and ask to be restored and we’ll get back to you”.

    Seriously, could I make this sh*t up?
    I’ll keep you apprised.

    • John in Indy August 22, 2021, 4:06 PM

      And you haven’t moved to a free state why?
      (I understand. When you have been in a home long enough to pay it off, you have invested more than money)

    Only for inner party members, komrade.

    Thank you for my 15 minutes of fame.

  • Casey Klahn August 21, 2021, 4:09 PM

    These muthas lack alacrity. That means you have a martial awareness; a crisp situational awareness, and you run to the decisive point right before shit goes down. Clausewitz called it “presence of mind”.

    Case in point. Now they want to ramp up the defensive op at Kabul. Duh YA THINK? Talk about slow witted. I can just picture the poor sonuvabitch at CENTCOM, with his head up Biden’s ass like a horse puppet in a carnival act. Gee, I wundah whut I should do nexxxxtttt (slow motion speeeeechhh)??

    His name is GEN McKenzie, and he’s smart and well-rounded. But, the pentagon sucked his brain dry. Unless, and I suspect this to be the case, he’s begging Biden for more troops and kinetic authority, and Biden won’t pick up the phone. “Mr. President? Mr. President…?” Can someone wake up the president?

    McKenzie is smart and talented. But for Jebuzz farking sake, general, where are your organic combat troops? You’re in charge of the Mid East, Egypt and most of Asia. And you have no troops or authority? POTUS has his hand up your ass so far your mouth flaps his fingers.

    Looks good on paper. Let’s see wht this Marine can do on the ground. IF they let him get on the ground.

    • Casey Klahn August 21, 2021, 4:49 PM

      If he’s asking for more authority and troops, he’s a day late and a dollar short. I think it’s obvious that he’s been requesting what he needs to accomplish the mission, and he’s been shown the hand by Biden (inc). Hillary was a piker at this. Biden is the king of Benghaziings. He’s Benghaziing the hell out of this mission. Next: it’ll become Isandlwana.

      All the while, we the people are being fed the pap that the airport is safe and the sit is A-OK.

      If I were in Hollywood, I’d be selling the script for this movie right now.

    Overheard today at the faux British Pub in Chico:

    “Biden needs to be impeached with a flaming chainsaw.”

    As a certifiable hate-object –third generation Ivy League, eminent Virginia-Texas-New England ancestry tracing Anglo-Norman knights and Manor Lords to AD 1128, we say:

    Septic elites’ “unbroken record of failure” (PJ Media’s Richard Fernandez) encompasses LBJ’s warfare-welfare Corporate State in 1964 (“Great Society”, Vietnam War, Nixon’s abandonment of Bretton Woods’ $35 Gold), followed by Carter Inflation plus Clinton, Benedict Barack, now “Triple-O Joe” (DC’s “Offal Orifice Occupant”) in wake of Rats’ Big Steal Election 2020.

    In context, we view Kabul et al. as a foreseeable consequence of extreme-radicals’ post-WWII administrative/regulatory (Fourth Branch) subreption, enabling Uniparty kleptarchs to inject America’s body politic with a hivemind, Police/Surveillance State ménage of power-hungry, status-seeking rentiers. As Eisenhower and JFK both warned, Big Banks’ Federal Reserve K-Street/Wall Street “inverse-selection” nexus of military/industrial overlapping directorates ensconced entitled ethnic-gender-racial quota-hire dependencies licensing their depredations.

    Confirmed time-and-again in every possible geopolitical and national context, Aristotle’s “Politics” (per “Nichomachean Ethics” c. BC 345) outlined this inexorable, cyclic katabasis from Alexander’s time. Abetted by DC’s sordid, sullied careerist clerisy, Oppenheimer’s nuclear treason, NASA’s 50-year space-program default, Nixon’s whilom embrace of worthless fiat scrip, the Great Republic’s peace-and-prosperity lies prostrate by elite default.

    Given prospective scientific-technological advances, Pareto’s top 20% “sparsity quintile” may yet inspire en masse escape to vast intrasolar terrafugia from c. AD 2050. Diverse as medieval Italy’s competing City States –Milano, Firenza, Parma, Venezia– whose enterprising individualists drove innovative Quattrocentro and Renaissance milieus, venturesome autonomous, libertarian enclaves may render Orwell’s “smelly little orthodoxies” forever obsolete.

      Yes of course
