Putting this one down here now for later use

In these pandemic times this tidbit didn’t last long in the news cycle and it deserves some attention:

The woman behind ‘Roe vs. Wade’ didn’t change her mind on abortion. She was paid ~ Meredith Blake

Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don’t have for something they don’t need. ~ Will Rogers

Dat ol Denial River Rolls On

First comes the revelation that Trump thinks our soldiers are chumps and then Bob Woodward reveals that the disaster in chief knew how bad the ‘rona was for a long time and chose instead to lie about it.

There are some profound implications here, especially Trump’s decision to hold that campaign rally in Tulsa this past summer knowing beforehand it would kill some of his own supporters, such as Herman Cain. To endanger your most fervent supporters reveals the special kind of contempt Donald harbors for his own people.

The GOPers down here love to wrap themselves up in the flag and it makes them such easy marks for a sociopath that thinks our war dead are losers. The ironies are so 2020 (and delicious).

I’d look for more damning revelations to come.







I’ve needed to get his off my chest for a few weeks now……

I’ve devoted a good portion of my professional career working K-12s and JUCOs in Mississippi. There are some incredibly talented folks that work in education and I’ve personally made a few lifelong friendships from that association. Since public education has a political component however, there are also some folks that are without doubt among the biggest imbeciles I’ve ever met that also work in the field. Lately more than a few school districts have volunteered themselves up along those lines with their pandemic re-opening plans, Jackson County and it’s new Superintendent being one that comes to mind and with them it starts with having what can be most charitably described as band of idiots for a School Board. Such condition appears to be locally epidemic here in the Magnolia State.

Lest this post be construed as a painting with a broad brush Slabbed recognizes those districts that have busted their butts actually getting ready to start school in a pandemic, the municipal districts on the coast being examples of that and they are a credit to their communities. And when it became apparent that even their best efforts would still make it unwise to re-open Bay-Waveland Schools took the very prudent step to push the start date back after labor day, which was and remains the best decision any K-12 in this State has made so far this year. There is a benefit to listening to good advice during a public health emergency.

And then there is the other half:

Teachers share grim details of Mississippi school districts failing to uphold COVID reopening promises ~ Adam Ganucheau

At a school in the Jackson County School District, teachers received so few cleaning supplies from the district that they’re having to tear off-brand Lysol wipes in half just to have enough to wipe down desks between classes. A little more than a week since students returned to the district, teachers are already spending their own money to buy additional cleaning supplies for their classrooms.

Live Free and Die an Imbecile: Put Herman Cain in for a Darwin Award

The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it in a spectacular manner!

Surely Herman Cain satisfied the criteria to be a big winner for 2020 by disregarding common sense and attending an indoor rally for his hero Donald Trump in Tulsa despite his advanced age and plethora of risk factors weighing against him.

Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies after battle with coronavirus ~ Kevin Breuninger

On Facebook the snowflakes melted down on the news without considering the following inescapable fact. What kind of leader deliberately encourages his supporters to engage in reckless behavior during a pandemic? The answer is painfully obvious to all but the most ardent Trumpanzees, because it takes a special kind of contempt to kill your own supporters. Tucker Carlson of all people spilled the beans about a month ago:

“‘No matter what,’ they’ll tell you,” Carlson said of a handful of advisers around the president, “‘our voters aren’t going anywhere. The trailer parks are rock-solid. What choice do they have? They’ve got to vote for us.'”

He continued: “Jared Kusher, for one, has made that point out loud. No one has more contempt for Donald Trump’s voters than Jared Kushner does.”

I can understand the contempt for people that are so dumb despite the fact that it is not right but the nuance that Kushner missed is the human psychology that comes with people that have made the Faustian bargain that now understand in their heart of hearts they have gained nothing from selling their souls to the devil. You can almost hear Herman Cain screaming from the pain of the hellfire. Continue reading “Live Free and Die an Imbecile: Put Herman Cain in for a Darwin Award”
