Telling the future from a piece of old newspaper. We didn't get to this day by accident. A conversation with the ever-thoughtful Dan Fisher.
A three-hour filibobster! Everything from money-grubbing Bolton's tell-all book, to potentially Murka's first Q-Anon congresswoman ("bad choices," "PROBABLY worse than black people"), to Republicans who are too terrified to say "Black Lives Matter," to anti-LGBT rants by the President of Poland ("The Duda") and a vile bit of Trans erasure by White House Spokestwit Kayleigh MAGAninny, to the Singing Anti-Masker, the ugly and the stupid are on the march.
Every broadcast Dr Bill creates is chock-full of brilliance, but today he revisited a topic only he can explain in the way he does: "Happiness," as in "the pursuit of." That phrase has been so twisted, so perverted by the wealth class that it would be unrecognizable to the people who included it in the Declaration of Independence. This one is a keeper.
COVID Caligula is doing his best to split the Alabama GOP, and more power to him. He's heading to Mobile to spread his disease among the faithful in an attempt to work his vengeance upon Jefferson Davis Beauregard Sessions the Turd in favor of a former football coach who doesn't even share his ideas on trade policy. This should at least be tragically entertaining to watch when it goes down. Then there's the ugly reality of the SCOTUS decision that wasn't covered on Monday. Just because it wasn't covered doesn't mean it wasn't a hulking disaster . . . with a side of 9th Circle of Hell betrayal thrown in for good measure. Horse-tradin' should be reserved for the livery stable, not for the highest court in the land, but here we are. You probably won't hear about this anywhere else. And in New Mexico, shots ring out in defense of a statue of a genocidal conquistador 400+ years dead.
How nice it is to have some good news to share! Regardless, with any good news comes news of the behavior of the morans in response to it, so there's that, and there's an over-abundance of it. FoxNews and DailyCaller get punked by Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Too rich for words. ABC is in a world of misery after the network owned by Mickey Mouse got caught covering for an abusive woman who, as VP, complained that GMA anchor Robin Roberts wasn't being "asked to pick cotton," said Sunny Holstin is "low rent," and described a former ABC News anchor as not being worth the money ABC News spends on toilet paper.
Wow! After fits and starts, finally, a podcast for Friday! Wednesday's was lost to a storage failure, Thursday's was lost to a snake in the studio (no, really!), so it was good to get a program in, and it was a dandy, according to folks who listened live. We begin with the story of The Snake and take it from there. Remember the idiot woman in Orange County whose "medical condition" prevented her from wearing a mask? Apparently, the disease spreads and found its way to New England where it caused another idiot woman to say almost the exact, same thing. What a disease! Also: Fox never changes, not even when an African-American presenter is interviewing Clorox Claudius. Bye, Felicia!
We've finished up another week of programs amid a nation under duress. Please join us next week for a continuation of our discovery on how history may be repeating itself once again, and how we might avoid the same pitfalls our forbearers faced when uniting it's people.
Um, hate to bother y'all with some ugly damned truth, but the 'Rona is still with us and will be for awhile. That's not just me. That's also Dr. Fauci, who said so out loud and apparently is rapidly running out of fks to give. Nonetheless, the whiny crybaby puissant MAGATS are still blubbering over being bullied about masks. Oh, and yeah: we got it right here at the HORN a lonnnnnng time ago. The virus was burning in Wuhan as early as August, like we discussed. Meanwhile, the DC National Guard got the 'Rona while they were curb-stomping peaceful protesters. Hi, Goddess of Irony! I promise you a prime rubber chicken sacrificed at Midnight. Hey! Who do you reckon dropped the dime on George Floyd? How do you reckon they're sleeping these days? "I could be bounded in a nutshell and call myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I had bad dreams."
Lordy! Get out the waders! The morans are thick and deep. Let's start with a pair of war criminals, shall we? Suddenly, they were the toast of the Sunday TV glitterati. It's like the slaughter of Iraq never happened. Meanwhile, cops slashed tires in Minneapoilis, a guy got evicted for going to a BLM protest in Iowa, dude made up an assault in California, and an incel turned out not to be as handy as he thought he was.
"The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." Plato Maybe it's time we pay attention to the world around us.
