STRANGE DAZE: From Mondrian Kitchens to Putin Direct

1956 Mondrian-Style Armstrong Kitchen – Mondrian paintings were an avant-garde statement during the 1930s. For the majority of American homeowners, modern design was a feature of the 1950s. Leary of faddish designs at first, it took a new post-War generation to embrace the new style.

MORGAN AT THE House of Eratosthenes NOTES: Fauci’s contribution was the creation of an environment in which we couldn’t hear from #2 through #5. There’s something about modern liberalism, they’re just suckers for this. They want a single point of control. I think, maybe, they like him because he took sides. He claimed to “represent science” but he never showed the tolerance for a dissenting viewpoint a real science practitioner should show. Conservatives noticed his advice seemed tailor-made to get rid of Trump. After awhile, Fauci came out and admitted it, he wanted Trump gone.

MORGAN AT House of Eratosthenes ALSO NOTES: This is a power our “free press” has always had that people don’t think about much. We allow them to determine, in large part, what we as free citizens discuss. If they decide something like this is not to be discussed, and a bunch of us disagree, they pretty much win. We go off and exercise our right to free speech over on blogs or discussion forums or whatever…the citizenry in large part discusses what’s printed in the mainstream press. For just a few moments.

The good miracles, the acts of the saints and heroes, are always acts of restoration. They give the victim back his personality; and it is a normal and not a super-normal personality. The miracle gives back his legs to the lame man; but it does not turn him into a large centipede. It gives eyes to the blind; but only a regular and respectable number of eyes. The paralytic is told to stretch forth his hands, which is the gesture of liberation from fetters; but not to spread himself as a sort of Briarean octopus radiating in all directions and losing the human form. There runs through the whole tradition the idea that black magic is that which blots out or disguises the true form of a thing; while white magic, in the good sense, restores it to its own form and not another. St. Nicholas brings two children alive out of a pot when they have already been boiled down into soup; which may be said the mark the extreme assertion of form against formlessness. But Medea, being a witch, puts an old man into a pot and promises to bring out a young man; that is, another man. Also, Medea, being a witch, does not keep her word. — G.K. Chesterton,  œMagic and Fantasy in Fiction 

Lizzo Claims She’s Oppressed For Having To Walk All The Way On Stage For This Stupid Award That Isn’t Even Edible | NEWARK, NJ — Critically acclaimed, larger-than-life star Lizzo, recently accepted her music video award at MTV’s VMAs. While doing so, the artist took the time to speak out about the systemic oppression of having to walk all the way down to this stage to accept an award she can’t even eat.

“I will not stand for these fat-shaming, fat-phobic award shows that continue to oppress me by the expectation that I should have to walk all this way just to accept an award,” said Lizzo trying to catch her breath. “And what’s the point of this stupid thing anyway? You can’t even eat it! Believe me. I’ve tried.”

The artist went on to encourage young girls everywhere instead to be healthy at any weight and to “treat yo-self” to that hot fudge cake breakfast you deserve and to reject hateful, fat-phobic words like diabetes, heart disease, and heart failure.

    Okay, see, I strongly suspect that last picture is bullshit. If cats go to heaven I should have no problem getting there myself, but preachers tell me it ain’t gonna happen.

      Theologians argue about whether or not a particular animal gets into Heaven. They should shut their mouths and return to arguing about how many angels would fit on the head of a pin. Animals were created before man; thus, they have known God longer. They were also the first to announce the presence of Jesus as God in that Bethlehem manger 2000 years ago. After I die and serve my penitential time in Purgatory, I know that my dog Joysie and I will play catch and chase with the Lord Jesus for all Eternity.

    I do not know why, here in the Phoenix metro, there are UHaul dealers every 200 feet or so, but there are. I did see a marquee outside one this week: “$199 SoCal specials!” It’s 388 miles to LA.

    I checked. To rent a 20-foot truck for one day to Florence, AZ, a distance of about 40 miles, the cost is $205. They aren’t paying customers to drive trucks from Texas to California, yet.

    The wife and I are moving out of PDX this weekend. We’ve lived in the wet side of the PNW for most of our lives. No more. It, like the entire west coast, has become a shit hole. Pols share some of the blame but the lion’s share is on the citizens. You get what you voted for. I’ll miss the scenery but not the people.

    • Mike Austin September 1, 2022, 5:53 AM

      I lived in Portland off and on for 30 years (1959 – 1993). I attended Portland State University (1978 – 1980) during the heyday of that city. Beautiful it was, though the moral rot was already apparent. It got to the point where I could not stand it anymore, that the movers and shakers of Portland were little more than human debris, moral degenerates and intellectual vacuities. I eventually ended up in Oklahoma City after 11 years in South America. At last, I am home.

      • Dan September 1, 2022, 6:01 AM

        Mike, OKC was our second choice. If Phoenix doesn’t work we’ll go there.

        • Gordon Scott September 1, 2022, 6:58 AM

          Advantages of Phoenix metro (Mesa) over OKC: No tornadoes, though monsoon winds are impressive. And you have to work pretty hard at it to freeze to death.

          It was 102 last night at 10 p.m. That’s not typical for August 31 but it’s not unusual.

          Leave your furniture. You can buy next to new for next to nothing at auctions.

            My concerns with Arizona are its long border with Mexico and the increasing instability of its water supply. Either one alone is a deal breaker.

          • julie September 1, 2022, 10:18 AM

            We lived in Mesa for about 10 years. Granted Mike’s objections, it was for the most part a good place to live. Scorpions can be a deal breaker for some folks, though.

            • Mike Austin September 1, 2022, 10:26 AM

              Yikes! We have scorpions but none have ever entered my apartment. Just to safe, I sprayed spider and scorpion spray this very day.

            • azlibertarian September 1, 2022, 12:16 PM

              Except for a brief 3 year period in the mid-80’s when the AF had me in the Philippines, I’ve been in Mesa since the early ’80’s….my wife her whole life. Scorpions go with the territory….they’re basically modern-day dinosaurs already, and I’m convinced that they’ll survive the nuclear war that will consume the rest of us. I think that the idea of scorpions is more bothersome than scorpions themselves. If you can remind yourself to be careful when picking up something from the ground, then you’ll probably be OK.

              • Gordon Scott September 1, 2022, 7:16 PM

                I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a scorpion in my 18 months here. The roommate got stung when she was doing dumb stuff moving things around at night. But that’s all.

                Water is important here, so important that people have been thinking about it for a thousand years at least. The canal that passes about 200 yards east of my home was originally dug by the Hohokam tribe, which vanished about 400 years ago.

                There are plans to stick a million people southeast of Mesa. There is no water for this area, as it was never farmland, only desert. But the developers are sure they can come up with some.

                  From the moment North Africa entered History around 1500 BC until 700 AD or so a man could ride a horse or camel from the Red Sea to the Atlantic almost entirely in the shade. North Africa was covered in grass, wheat, palm trees, tremendous forests and olive groves. Animals—elephants, lions, okapi, giraffes and such beasts—were ubiquitous, and many of them went to their doom for the pleasure of the Roman populace.

                  And today? The issue was and is water.

                  The population of much of Arizona should take heed. It depends for its livelihood—and its very life—on a supply of water that is slowly disappearing.

        • Mike Austin September 1, 2022, 7:08 AM

          I had considered Arizona but chose Oklahoma. I know that Texas gets all the press these days among the Liberty Community but it is Oklahoma that is more free and more secure.

          1. It is self-sustaining with oil and natural gas.
          2. Its gun laws are the best in the nation.
          3. It has no problems with electrical brownouts.
          4. Its governor is no RINO.
          5. It shares no border with Mexico.
          6. It is loaded with cattle, pigs, sheep, wheat and corn.
          7. No one here named Beto.
          8. 75 percent of the population is white, 10 percent Native American, 8 percent black, the rest Asian and Latino.
          9. Its water supply via the Ogallala Aquifer is absolutely self-sustaining and stable.
          10. 100 percent of Oklahoma counties voted for Trump in 2020, making Oklahoma the reddest of red states.

            Writer Dan Jenkins, of Semi-Tough fame, may have coined a term for Texas: Baja Oklahoma.

            • Mike Austin September 2, 2022, 1:24 AM

              I can imagine a time in the not-so-distant future when the US abandons her border with Mexico as ungovernable and makes a much more secure and heavily armed and mined line some 200 miles or so north of the Rio Grande. In that case Texas and Oklahoma would merge into a huge ethnic state more than willing to shoot to kill those who would ignore national boundaries and the laws that maintain them. “Baja Oklahoma” indeed!

              During the Mexican War (1846 – 1848) there were those in Congress—Southerners especially—who argued for the conquest and assimilation of most or all of Mexico. Maybe we should have done it, slavery be damned.
