It isn't Christmas but we're discussing the Tale of Two Santas', the theory and strategy written by Jude Wanniski in 1976. He touted the theory within the Republican Party about tax-rate reduction, which it would seem someone took seriously, and it was carried out by our current government after the 2016 elections. It would seem that focusing on tax reduction, remember Paul Ryan, falls within the scope of those who need it least receive it rather than those who need it most.
As West Virginia tries to figure out how to keep whitewater rafters socially distant in a rubber raft careening down an ancient gorge and foregoes the riverside buffets, Hydroxy Hadrian headed to the Senate today for a buffet luncheon with Republican senators so ancient they fart dust. No worries, tho', cuz Viral Vespasian is on the Hyrdoxy, some call it the Hydroxy. Meanwhile, the MAGATS are shrieking for the execution of "that one" who used to live in our WHITE House because Michael Flynn. And Steve Scully over to the CSPAN has the worst job on earth.
Plato's allegory of the Cave tells us much about ourselves as a whole. It describes how we perceive the world around us and how we can come to the wrong conclusion with regard to our perception of reality. Right now knowledge is at a premium and it heeds us to pay attention to information that could be the difference of to be or not to be. That isn't a question, it's a percentage. The difference in being is based on accurate knowledge of the situation in order to see the situation clearly. Don't be caught staring at the wall of the cave.
A late-breaking bit of moranity upended the program's plotline. Hydroxy Hadrian claims to be taking the "Hydroxy." Loves it. Says it's "very safe." Says he feels great. Lies through his teeth. I advance my personal theory as to what he's taking. Suffice to say, it's not what he thinks it is. Eric and Junior prove the apple isn't the onliest thing that falls near its source. Karen wants to speak to the manager. Karen's going to sue. Karen's an idiot. She repeats propaganda lines that run straight to Mother Russia. Mike Pompeo's problems multiply faster than 'Rona particles.
Today we're discussing the conservatism of Herbert Hoover and our current state of affairs that we find ourselves in with regard to our economy. What is a life worth? According to our government not much. The pandemic still rages and we're focusing on money by opening our doors wide and venturing into the breach. That is a continued discussion that we hope you'll be with us for because we feel that each life is priceless and not a bargaining chip for the stock exchange.
Washington legislator trashes state capitol steps to perteck agin' th' deemunz. Clorox Claudius says it's "beautiful" when people die of COVID-19. NOTE: He's a monster. And he announced today that Murkkka has a "Super Duper Missile." I weep for our country. DoJ Prosecutors in Flynn case quit because Bill "Pepe the Frog" Barr wouldn't say that they had behaved ethically and that there was no prosecutorial misconduct. Christian racists declare the lynching of Armaud Arbery was a "false flag." MAGAT assaults reporter trying to cover their whiny re-open protest in NY.
Yesterday, I tried to hurry the week along and wound up thinking Wednesday was Thursday. Today is Thursday. What a Thursday today was! We got the indescribably idiotic Markwayne Mullin (his parents couldn't afford a middle name) attacking Dr. Bright over his blood pressure instead of trying to learn about COVID-19 and our miserable response. A Barbie noose in Michigan. Judge Emmett Sullivan lays down a marker. Clorox Claudius says COVID-19 testing is overrated. Kayleigh MAGAninny says Murkkka should be grateful that Corona Caligula is healthy. The hundreds of thousands of Americans grieving 80,000+ dead might say otherwise.
MAGAT Wisconsin Supreme Court issues death warrant for Wisconsonians. Tami Laren tells liberals not to complain about cancellation of Pride parades. Some things never change: Louisville cops break down door, shoot sleeping woman eight times. She was an "essential" EMT. She was, of course, black. The cops were, of course, in the wrong apartment. Legal grifter Mat Stavers says making people exercise social distancing is JUST.LIKE the Holocaust. GymShorts Jordan tells America to quit being lazy lay-abouts and get back to work. From history, an account of the consequences of refusal to vaccinate. Clorox Claudius declares Dr. Fauci's advice about re-opening schools to be "unacceptable."
Frederick Law Olmsted brought about a renaissance to the community in the early 1900's by co-designing many of our well known urban parks. Is this the kind of visionary we need to see now in light of the pandemic? Someone who can help us maintain socially while providing safety in areas where people congregate? A redefining event in human history always leaves it's mark and social distancing will continue to define us once we reopen our world. Now more than ever we must learn to work within our communities and be mindful of our fellow man without endangering another.
Rand Paul and that thing that's taken over his haid have had enough of this being careful stuff. He knows better than every scientist on earth how much more important th' 'conomy is than people's lives. He had a thing or two to say to Dr. Fauci today. Like some medieval pope, Jay Sekulow crowned Clorox Claudius King Charlemaga today in the Supreme Court of the United States. Also, a conversation with Steffon Passimore about COVID-19 in Talibama. What this Trumpandemic is doing to the arts. How the arts are responding.
