» Show Me the Moral Excellence

Next time you see Mike Pence, ask him what he thinks about his boss being a gigantic tax cheat. Ask him how that sits with his values .. with his sense of moral excellence. With his sense of right-n-wrong.

How does that sit with his sense of patriotism?

Trump says about Pence: 'I dont question his loyalty at all.' (17 Nov 2018)

Ask him about the condition of the planet that is being left to our children.

U.S. Climate report warns of damaged environment and shrinking economy

Because neither he nor his boss seem to be the least bit concerned.

Trump refuses to see climate change as man-made (27 Nov 2018)

Ask him what he thinks about his generation living at the expense of the next generation?

CBO deficit projections

What does he think about his generation stealing from its kids?

Proverbs instructs the believer » "Do not let mercy and kindness leave you. Instead let these qualities define you. Bind them securely around your neck and write them on the tablet of your heart."

Ask him "Where is the 'mercy and kindness' in ripping young children away from their vulnerable parents?" (Ye shall know them by their fruit.)

Member of Homeland Security Advisory Council resign over admin's morally repugnant immigration policy of separating children from parents

Lemme know what he says .. because he can't say that he wasnt warned.

» "It's Okay if You Hack Up Enemies-of-the-People"

If I were going to try a similar thing as Blow does here .. by giving existential voice to actions ..

.. I might say that the Administration's response to the Saudis for the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi is something like »

Jamal Khashoggi walking into Saudi consulate in Istanbul (2 Oct 2018)

"It's okay if you use a bone-saw to hack up journalists from the Amazon-Washington Post .. long as the blade is sharp and not very rusty .. because they are just enemies of-the-people anyway. Downright disgusting, I tell you. Thanks for the help, but try to be a little more careful next time. And 15 guys is way too many. You shouldnt need more than two or three. Talk to the Russians."

Operation InfeKtion: How Russia Perfected the Art of War (25 Nov 2018)

I am talking about actions here, not words. What do the actions say if you strip away all the words .. because you can no longer trust the words. And because actions always speak louder.

» Elite-Level Hypocrisy and the Sad Lesson of Paul Ryan's Speakership

Check out this review and fact-check of Paul Ryan's speakership done by Ari Melber (6 Dec 2018).

Paul Ryan's Speakership reviewed and fact-checked by Ari Melber (6 Dec 2018)

He is not putting words into Paul Ryan's mouth. Ari is letting Paul Ryan speak for himself .. and then looking at how Paul did relative to those statements that he publicly uttered himself.

» Nobody is Even Close

I wonder what Charlie Pierce thinks of this.

Paul Ryan is the biggest fake in politics says Charlie Pierce .. nobody is even close (19 Dec 2018).

You could spend the rest of your life trying to identify and document all the hypocrisy in our government .. and still not capture it all.

I bet that Michael Moore knows what I am talking about.

Michael Moore says Donald Trump chaos makes him frightened for the country (20 Dec 2018).

Have they no shame? Do they just say whatever they think that people want to hear? It certainly appears that way.

» Birds of a Feather Flocking Together

Speaking of being renowned for hypocrisy .. here is Ken Starr with a young Brett Kavanaugh.

Ken Starr and Brett Kavanaugh are birds-of-a-feather

Birds-of-a-feather are they.

» Hypocrisy and Self-Delusion

Nobody lives a life completely free of hypocrisy .. but gross hypocrisy is a result of self-delusion.

We are better at deceiving ourselves than others (at t=1:10)

They dont see their hypocrisy because they dont know themselves .. because they are self-deluded.

And because they dont see this obvious thing right in front of them .. they naturally think that others dont see it either.

» What a Hypocrite

I wonder what Mike Pence thinks of this. He seems to be familiar with the way that bad morals can end up incinerating the planet.

Mike Pence the hypocrite speaks to Bill Clinton's moral failures

He is such a hypocrite. He is a hypocrite's hypocrite. Paul says that such people condemn themselves.

Peter says to rid yourself of all hypocrisy. (Mike mustve skipped that part.)

Jesus himself warned the people about the hypocrisy of the members of the Establishment of his day ..

.. saying that these members of the Establishment do not practice what they preach ..

.. and that these self-righteous Establishment hypocrites like to major in the minor things .. while neglecting the really important stuff, such as justice and mercy.

Mike Pence the hypocrite speaks to Bill Clinton's moral failures

Mike Pence seems to have two drastically different sets of moral standards that our elected officials should live by.

The moral standard that he uses for members of the opposite party appear to be very different from those that employs for members of his own party.

I so badly want to tell Mike Pence (along with his shitty, hypocritical values) to go fuck himself .. but I should probably just bite my tongue.

I bet that George Will would back me up here. And McKay Coppins. And Stephen. And Ellen Wald.

Mike Pence is a self-righteous, fake believer .. just like George. And just like Fred "God-Hates-Fags" Phelps.

Mike Pence is in it purely for the political appeal (.. and the racism that accompanies it).

A generation comes and a generation goes. They can't say that they werent warned. Peter knows what I am talking about.

Peter Wehner knows what I am talking about.

I Am So Glad that We Will Always be in Love Forever

Right now the time is 11:46 PM on 16 July 2018 .. and this page is live. I was cutting it a little close there.

When I list the time as 7:16 PM, this is not the real time that I posted this page. This is simply a numeric reflection of the date. (July is the seventh month.)

All of my entries correspond to this same pattern. This is just a quirky thing that I do. The date is really the thing that matters .. the important thing.

If the time matters in an entry, then I will specifically note it. Sometimes it does matter, but not normally.

» Must be Today

Sometimes (not always) I feel as though I need to start a certain page on/by a certain day. Today is one such day.

I admit that this is something of a quirky thing with me. I dont know anybody else who has a quirky thing like this. (I normally try to avoid quirky things.)

The feeling behind such things is that you will surely die .. if you dont do this thing. Maybe not die, some bad shit for sure.

11:59 PM is okay .. but midnight, which begins the new day, is not. So I dont want to cut it too close.

I can fill in the page later, but the actual HTML structure needs to be up-n-live on/by a certain day.

Now, after midnight .. then I am free to do whatever I like. More or less .. depending.

I can feel a sense of timing at play. Timing is important .. along with the ability to execute a complex skill-set in a timely fashion.

» Good to be Loved

As coincidence would have it ... I am listening right now to » Could You be Loved .. on a mix playlist .. where one of the lines that the Rastafarian sings is »"It's good to be loved."

And I think, "True that."

I am not sure what I will be writing in this entry .. but I know that I will have lots of fun doing it.

Girly, do you work your thing like this on everybody? Or, is it just me?

I am not sure how you are doing it .. but there is just something irresistible about you. And it's not just one thing, either.

» A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

America is learning a lot about itself these last few years.

It is not a pretty picture.

But at least we know better where we stand.

And who stands for what.

» His Foot has Slipped

When I saw Trump hold up the executive order after signing it ..

.. the one ending refugee children being separated from their parents .. after fleeing violence and threats of violence in their home countries (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador) ..

.. when I saw him hold up that executive order .. the voice in my head said, "His foot has slipped. The day of his calamity is near."

» Mika Goes Ninja-Like on Kirstjen Nielsen

Oh, look at Mika go here .. getting all ninja-like on Kirstjen Nielsen. I dont think that I have ever seen another thing quite like that.

She is calling out every single piece of bullshit that is being said .. right at the point where it is being said it. That has a cool effect when she does that.

It is a different topic, but Ana does a similar thing here. That was outstanding.

And here is Mr. Ninja himself talking about the devolving of language.

» Doctors Say that Toxic Stress Can Affect a Child for Their Entire Life

Shame on you, Kirstjen Nielsen. Shame the fuck on you and your shitty values and priorities. You are spineless.

Statement on the effects of separating children from their refugee parents by James Madara, CEO AMA

Woe unto you. "Here, hold this millstone for me."

And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble. Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come.

A Strikingly Ignorant Thing to Say

This entry continues from here » Feeling Betrayed by Kanye (25 April 2018).

» Kanye Says the Black Man Chose the Shackles of Slavery for 400 Years

Just when you think you've heard it all .. you hear a black man say that 400 years of slavery sounds like a choice to him.

Kanye says that 400 years of slavery sounds like a choice to him (01 May 2018)

Kanye here is smiling .. but he is the only one. Harvey looks concerned. Nobody sees the humor that Kanye does. Nobody else feels his sense of levity. His strange sense.

Is this not a strikingly ignorant thing to say? .. that slavery was a "choice." I wonder what Dyson thinks.

If Kanye had lived a hundred years ago, I bet that he would have a different opinion of slavery. Much different.

Somebody please share this video with Kanye.

Here is another from James Baldwin, called the Pin Drop speech, that he shoud familiarize himself with. (Does Kanye even know who James Baldwin was?)
