Awesome!! …. “During a time in which radical solutions to economic disparity are being urgently sought out, it tracks that today’s Google Doodle honors the economist, author and professor Sir W. Arthur Lewis, who was a radical in many ways within his own chosen field. “

Repeating Islands

A report by Helen Holmes for The Observer.

In 2020, many Americans have become suddenly and intimately familiar with the fragility of the economic structures that frame their lives. During a time in which radical solutions to economic disparity are being urgently sought out, it tracks thattoday’s Google Doodlehonors the economist, author and professorSir W. Arthur Lewis, who was a radical in many ways within his own chosen field. Lewis, who was jointly awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for his work on modeling the economic forces that shape developing countries, also broke many racial barriers in academia.

Lewis’s foundational piece of work is the 1954 article “Economic Development with Unlimited Supplies of Labour.” He was born in 1915 on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, and had worked his way up to becoming a full professor at the London School of Economics by…

I really have no words … m’gawd!! … CURRENT REPUBLICANS!! – “If the old school right-wing absurdist nut-cases have become mainstream Republicans, then the new right-wing absurdist nut-cases were forced to become more right-wing, more absurdist, and more nut-casier than they were before. And to my horror, they’ve succeeded.”

For several years I made a habit of checking in on what I like to call ‘Right-Wing Absurdist Nut-Case’ blogs (I call them that because they’re right-wing blogs that attract nut-cases who seem to be engaged in performative absurdist theater). I usually did it once or twice a week, just in order to see what the crazy fringe believed it.

I haven’t done it very often in recent months, mainly because there was no need. What used to be right-wing absurdist nut-cases have now become mainstream Republicans in Congress. But now that Comrade Trump is being pried out of office, I thought I’d revisit the fetid swamplands of RWANC blogs.

Here’s what I learned:

  1. Former President Barack Hussein Obama was arrested by federal agents in Hawaii and charged with Espionage. He was apparently working for the People’s Republic of China to overthrow the US government and…

Everything about Ted Cruz, Lyin’ Ted … and more!! The ludicrous lawsuit brought by 18 AG of red states — to be ‘defended’ at SCOTUS by Lyin’ Ted … can’t really make this up!!

If Green Acres’ Mr. Haney and Grandpa Munster got busy and had a hate baby, it would be Ted Cruz…if it was born in Canada.

Ted Cruz is a disgusting, slimy, skeezy, smarmy, pompous, vile excuse of a human being, but let me tell you how I really feel about him. The man has zero principles, morals, or loyalty. Donald Trump accused his father of murdering JFK and called his wife ugly, yet Ted Cruz is on the Trump train. One thing I don’t get about Texas, the state I was born in, is why they reelected a man who became a groveler to the guy who insulted his father and his wife.

During the 2016 Republican primaries, Ted Cruz called Donald Trump a “sniveling coward,” a “pathological liar,” “utterly amoral,” a “narcissist,” “nuts,” “kooky,” a “big, loud New York bully,” a “serial philanderer,” and a “small and petty man…

#TBT …. “ThrowBack Thursday – 💞 ‘First Love, Last Love – Life’s Full Circle’ 💞 …. “!!

FIRST LOVE, LAST LOVE

I found out that it was ‘couple’s week’ some time ago. I’m not sure if this is a made up week or if we are actually celebrating this. In any event, I took the ‘game’ to heart and played along.

(Photo circa 1997!)

I once found the words about being the first and the last love included below because, in our case, we were the first for each other – life came full circle – and we are now the last one for each other.

Doesn’t get any better than that!
