Now You've Really Gone and Done It

Girly. Girly. Girly.

What am I going doing with you? (I mean, that I havent done already.)

You are in so much trouble right now. You cannot possibly know how much trouble you are in.

After I finished watching the trailer for your Netflix special (releasing tomorrow) I thought, "Now you've really gone and done it."

You know that you cannot be doing shit like this ..

Ariana's Winter Solstice, Grand Conjunction, Netflix Special - excuse me, i love you - on 21 Dec 2020

.. and think you will get no response. No retaliation. Certainly not with something this provocative.

You know this better than anybody.

» I Feel Your Sense of Frustration

When I talk about the sense of political frustration I feel when I see Joe Biden bragging about his ability to cozy up to Southern racists ..

.. while, at the same time, treating progressives from his own party like they are some kind of pariahs ..

.. Emma knows what I am talking about. Heck, she probably knows this better than anybody.

I appreciate you, EmVig. I appreciate what you do. Certainly more than the four-ninety-nine I sent your way.

Oh, look .. now you have your own page. This is my way of showing my appreciation. One of my ways.

I feel your sense of frustration .. at the lack of any kind of progress whatsoever.

Speaking of folks who elevate the value and the importance of money, a man-made thing, to a value and a status higher than it deserves ..

.. I want to ask Nancy Pelosi what she thinks about the way Corporate Profits at Boeing sent Safety into the backseat.

This here is a classic example of fucked-up values on full display for all the world to see.

Boeing's 737 Max a Saga of Capitalism Gone Awry by David Gelles | A corporate culture that privileged profits over safety had terrible consequences (24 Nov 2020)

Do you think that the decision-makers in this case .. do you think they are embarrassed by being found out?

Do you think they feel any sort of contrition? Over the lives lost? The lives lost because of the poor decisions made regarding this commercial aircraft.

The obviously poor decisions that seemed of be more profit-centric than safety-centric. Than life-centric.

Soul Capture

It is actually still only the 30th of September right now.

Timestamp Wednesday Sept 30 2020 10:02 PM PDT San Diego

It won't be the 1st of October for a few more hours.

I was outside a little while ago and it was still very warm. The air is warm and dry and still. It reminded me of the nights I spent in the desert.

Hotel California weather. Colitas werent the only thing I was smelling those nights.

» Held Up Again by Super-Hotties

You know, I tried to capture this image here at exactly 10:01, as a way of mirroring the date, which is also 10-01.

(It's a quirky thing of mine.)

But I missed it. I was late by a minute. I was busy flirting with a super-hottie, and she wouldnt let me go.

I said, "I need to go. I need to go chronicle the end of the world."

She said, "Just five more minutes."

I said, "You said that an hour ago."

She said, "I know, but this time I really mean it."

I am not making excuses here, and blaming super-hotties .. but this is why I am late.

I won't mention any names, but she knows who she is.

I will try not to let it happen again .. because I know how important timing can be. (Eddie Glenn knows what I am talking about.)

For what it's worth, I like Katie Porter. I like her a lot. She is my hero.

Katie Porter's exchange with JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon should shape the 2020 campaigns (12 Apr 2019)

The biggest problem that America is facing is » corruption. This issue gets more citizen support than any other.

Except for the wealthiest of the wealthy, everybody agrees that the corrupting effects of money-in-politics is a problem that continues to grow worse.

Until you fix the problem of the corrupting effects of money-in-politics (for good) .. things are only going to continue to deteriorate for us-the-people .. as they have been for the last 40 years now. It is no big secret.

Mick Mulvaney knows what I am talking about.

Mick Mulvaney does not respond to people who do not give him money

Not.

Spreading the Progressive Love Around

This page continues from an entry titled » A Reputation Built on the Ability to Funnel Large Sums of Money into Politics (20 Sept 2020).

Kiss my progressive ass, Sydney Ember.

Katie Halper's article on Sydney Ember, the Times' Senior Anti-Bernie Correspondent (2 July 2019 at Jacobin)

It's just a figure of speech, you know. I dont really want your nasty lips on my ass.

I want to ask Ms Ember what she thinks about how the 2016 Democratic nomination process was rigged in favor of Hillary, and against Bernie?

Donna Brazile found solid proof that Hillary rigged the primary nomination process against Bernie (t=2:50)

Bernie would be president right now if the nomination process hadnt been rigged in favor of the establishment candidate.

» You Are a Fund-Raiser

You are a fund-raiser, Nancy Pelosi. That is your thing. Money is your thing. You are literally about the money .. certainly much more than your colleagues are.

Nobody puts money into politics like Nancy "Cha-Ching" Pelosi. That is her claim to fame. Her claim to political fame. It is her ability to funnel money into politics like nobody else.

This is why they made you Speaker. This is why they wanted you as their Leader. Because you are about the money.

Unfortunately there is a problem with this paradigm .. this Pelosi paradigm. A big problem. Russ Feingold knows what I am talking about.

Russ Feingold says that money in politics corrupts the decision-making process of the people's representatives

We-the-People want a government that responds to our needs. But it is designed now to respond only to the whims of the wealthy.

And nothing else. JLaw will be more than happy to break it down for you.

Public support means nothing .. because money is the only thing that matters to members of congress | RepresentUs (27 Feb 2019)

I am no Constitutional scholar, but I feel confident that this is not what the Framers had in mind.

Because this is not a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Not even a little. Krystal knows what I am talking about.

Today is actually the 13th of September, but I want to get a week's worth of a running headstart on 20 Sept 2020 .. because I have a few things I want to say. And this could take a while.

You cannot possibly imagine how much I enjoyed writing today's title. There is just something about telling assholes to go fuck themselves .. that I find so wonderfully therapeutic. Cathartic, even.

John Oliver knows what I am talking about.

John Oliver blows up 2016

Everybody knows that repression plays a major role in a number of psychological disorders and mental illnesses.

Maybe this is why I am feeling so psychologically healthy right now. Heck, I might even skip my anti-depressants today .. I am feeling so happy right now.

I am going to have so much fun writing this that I can hardly stand it. I wouldve done this long ago .. had I known it was going to feel this good. Live-n-learn.

Today is 20 August 2020. I could not resist posting an entry with such a rare, cool date.

Next year we will have » 19 August 2021. That is also a cool date.

But in order to get 3-of-a-kind on the date in August, you will have to wait 101 years for the year 2121 [ 21 Aug 2121 ].

I wonder if anybody took notice of the date back in 1919? [ 19 Month 1919 ].

We should do something extra special today .. as a way to help celebrate the day. Just you-n-me .. nobody else.

» Exploring the Entire Range of Moral Experience

I was thinking earlier about doing a little exploring today. I always enjoy the exhilarating sense-of-adventure that comes from exploring new things. From exploring new places.

Particularly when I am able to hook up with a beautiful creature who isnt afraid to join me .. and who doesnt mind getting in trouble now-n-again.

The last time I set out to explore new things .. I was joined by this dancer-chick. Ooh la la .. let me tell you. What a thoroughbred.

It always helps, I have found, to have along a super-hottie whenever you are exploring such realms. (Indiana Jones knows what I am talking about.)

» Fond Memories of Intimate Times

One of my favorite explorations .. was into a question that arose from a genuine curiosity. (On 23 Feb 2017.) She has been such a trooper. She seems to evoke a different part of me.

If you happen to run into her while you are out-n-about, tell her that I am sucking on a Godiva chocolate right now ..

I somehow feel like I am cheating on her .. every time I tear open another one of these wrappers and pop the heart-shaped chocolate in my mouth.

And especially while I am sucking on the creamy center.

Tonight is the August full moon. Groups of coyotes have been howling loudly the last few nights.
