Ignorance is Bliss …


American exceptionalismwas it ever a ‘thing”? … “The dumbing down of America began long before the current president rose to power. It’s easy to blame the man, but in this case, he’s merely jumping on the bandwagon and taking the ignorance to new and immense heights.”

On The Fence Voters

The dumbing down of America began long before the current president rose to power. It’s easy to blame the man, but in this case, he’s merely jumping on the bandwagon and taking the ignorance to new and immense heights.

For all of his faults, and there are too many to list here, recognizing the stupidity of so many Americans and capitalizing on their failure to reach even the bare minimum of intellectual curiosity might be his most significant and long-lasting contribution to America’s decline.

All you need to do is scan the news every day for examples of how far we’ve gone from being the envy of the world to a country ultimately coming apart at its seams, flailing and hurtling head-first into a world of conspiracy theories, lies, racial division, and absurdity…

Virtual Fans …


My crowd was bigger than yours!Tampa, Flori-duh mini rally!!
“It was so sparse, the White House released a photo of it where…wait for it … they photo-shopped in more people. Actually, it wasn’t more people. It was the same people. They took the crowd and multiplied it. So, if you look at the photo carefully, you see the same racist assholes several times.

It’s kinda like when Fox News shows a photo of Jeffrey Epstein, they crop out Donald Trump. Seriously! … I mean, if you can’t even get the racist assholes to come out in Florida, you’re might be kinda doomed.”

Because of the coronavirus, fans haven’t been allowed into professional sports. But, the leagues are attempting to recreate a live atmosphere for their games.

In Major League Baseball, there are cutouts of human beings in the stands. With lifeless fans, it truly does make the game more boring. But, baseball isn’t going go be able to finish their season anyway (that’s a not-so-bold prediction).

The NBA is actually piping fans in. That is, they’re on screens watching the game in real-time so there are actual genuine reactions to what’s happening.

World Wrestling Entertainment company was the first “sport” to return because after giving Republicans a shit ton of money, Florida’s governor declared wrestling an “essential” service. Apparently in Florida, it’s essential to see people get clobbered in their heads with chairs and thrown through tables. But, they have actual fans in attendance. Granted, they’re trainees so technically, these “fans” are…

JIM THORPE ACHIEVEMENTS

It’s Monday … my Momoa Monday search for today has been extremely interesting. I didn’t about Jim Thorpe, I didn’t know about ‘Drunk History’, I didn’t know Jason had anything to do with creating this quirky, historical clip.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!

James Francis Thorpe (Sac and Fox (Sauk)Wa-Tho-Huk, translated as “Bright Path“; May 22 or 28, 1887 – March 28, 1953) was an American athlete and Olympic gold medalist. A member of the Sac and Fox Nation, Thorpe became the first Native American to win a gold medal for the United States. Considered one of the most versatile athletes of modern sports, he won Olympic gold medals in the 1912 pentathlon and decathlon, and played American football (collegiate and professional), professional baseball, and basketball.

He lost his Olympic titles after it was found he had been paid for playing two seasons of semi-professional baseball before competing in the Olympics, thus violating the amateurism rules that were then in place. In 1983, 30 years after his death, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) restored his Olympic medals.

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

Best moment of the day … “I wrote of that fleeting feeling in the morning, of possibility. That’s what I want Drifts to be, my desire and longing for it.” – Kate Zambreno, Drifts: A Novel (Penguin, May 19, 2020).

The first moment I wrote in my notebook again, I wrote of that fleeting feeling in the morning, of possibility.

That’s what I want Drifts to be, my desire and longing for it.

Biden’s Pick


It’s an awesome cartoon … MARY!! … “It’s a cartoon. Sometimes, I want to virtually slap people on the back of their heads.”

Here’s your cartoon for this week’s CNN Opinion newsletter. Please sign up to get these in your inbox every Sunday.

The funniest thing about this cartoon is that a few people who left comments about it on social media took it seriously. They were like, “No, we can’t trust her. She’s a Trump.” and, “I would prefer so and so blah blah blah.”

People. It’s a cartoon. I’m not advocating for Joe Biden to pick Mary Trump. In fact, she’s not even a candidate among his prospects.

It’s a cartoon. Sometimes, I want to virtually slap people on the back of their heads.

OK, who do you want to see Joe pick?
