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.

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”

Good News, Better News…..

We’re blowing and going here on the main campus and I look to be very tied up with the day job until next month, when I drop the very and should just be tied up.

The better news is we’re able to do about ten miles of road work before 8 AM, which is freeing up more of the day for other things, such as collapsing from exhaustion. Seriously we haven’t felt this good since we were in our 20s.

Here is a link for those that missed it concerning the criminals in the Catholic Church. At least this one isn’t for buggering kids:

It will be OK folks, they scapegoated a couple of the accountants. We should all feel safer now. Except for the sexual predators that is.

Prepare yourselves folks because its fixing to hit the fan again

Judging from the average Facebook comment to the local newspaper stories on the topic of the Covid pandemic, there are a shit ton of dangerously ignorant people out there:

‘Major disaster’ looms as Mississippians ignore COVID-19 rules, top health official says ~ Anita Lee

Other takeways from Dobbs interviews so far:

He told Jackson Free Press reporter Nick Judin that, unless coronavirus spread is brought under control, people could be unable to find hospital beds after car wrecks or ventilators after heart attacks because of COVID-19 care demands.

When the next quarantine comes the stores will again be slammed. The inability to return paper goods may deter toilet paper hoarding at your local big box store. However, the stores here are just now restocking with dried goods like beans so now may be a good time to make sure your pantry is full if you can get them.

Tips derived from my casual observations from our last lock down:

  • Do not stress eat. If you get extra spare time use it to walk outside and try to lose a few pounds. To the extent there is evidence that Covid-19 attacks the vascular system as much or more than it targets the lungs, obesity is a major risk factor for Covid. Losing weight cuts your risk of getting severely ill. Stopping smoking also cuts your risk greatly.
  • Healthy foods did not disappear from Grocery store shelves nearly as much as processed/pre-made frozen foods etc. Eat fresh, you’ll feel better for it.

Stay safe folks, especially those of you in high risk groups.

I’ve personally never seen anything like this in my 50 plus years here in Mississippi. Back during the tropical storm people gathered at Blaylock Park in Wiggins and Slabbed was there:

And despite the wind and rain people continued to trick in after the official start time:

The group up here was so peaceful I did not notice a single law enforcement officer among those gathered. Then again the impetus for this rally came from the local business community as did last Friday evening’s march in Bay St Louis:
