    OMG! Are you serious? The LG Effers are terribly angry! You may never have their biznix again. So much commerce lost from their tiny empty bank accounts …..trails off to sleep.

    Wow. There’s something about astronaut ladies with their thick hair floating over their cute heads. OMG. It’s like the way women have always been with men in uniforms. As women rightfully move into these rolls we kinda feel the same. It’s like a pre-validation. They gave them a uniform plus they have to be scientists and maybe even pilots and extremely smart. Plus risked their lives to get up there and are truly duty bound Total rock stars. Don’t tell her husband I’m a creep. 🙂

    Some how, loons like Chuck think products just appear out of thin air, not a soul on Earth is needed to bake bread or pasties, process meat, pick vegetables or fruit.
    No one is needed to get products to stores or maintain clean water supplies, repair power lines and keep other services going.
    It all happens without a single human being getting out of the house and the only people wanting these little niceties are evil greedy CEO’s and billionaires.
    Lets all follow Chucks logic and starve billions of people to death so he feels safer.

    You know I thought about responding to this POS Fatso. But it’s just a waste of breathe. When so many people are busting butt. I’ve been watching this. So good, if you get a chance. I rented it for like 7 bucks or something.

      Great flick!

      Another good one about WWI is Peter Jackson’s colorized, “They Shall Not Grow Old.” I found it quite devastating, in a matter-of-fact way. A whole generation of European men destroyed in the insane trench warfare, fought for insane reasons. And, of course, planting the seeds for WWII. Brilliant doc.

        1918 – Letter home from my granduncle Walter.

        We are in a camp near Auzeville and the big drive is to start. In fact the one that finished the “Boches”. Then the morning of the 26th dawned but dawn was preceded by a terrific barrage which was as loud as thunder and lighted up the whole skyline for miles. We were not flying ours but were held in reserve. Hundreds of “planes” were now flying over head. One bunch had over 150 in it. Along about 8 a.m., along comes a boche plane and he burned three of the balloons all observers landed safe but one and his parachute burned and he fell to his death. A fellow by the name of Barnett and I started out to see the fun. Put our guns on and started for the front line trenches which were about 5 miles north. After a short while we hit the trenches but of course our boys had advanced and were chasing the boche for a fare you well. We hit several mine craters where the boche had mined the roads but already our engineers had started to budge them. After another hour’s walk and dodging a few pieces of shrapnel we hit the town of Varennes and were keen for souvenirs. The boche were still in one side of the Varennes and we were in the other. Machine guns were crackling with a steady roar and long streams of ambulances carrying away the wounded. Dead Boche were laying every where. The roads were filled with them. Long about then a Boche 77 took my ….. but never touched us. Then we started going through the dugouts and it was there that I got the general’s helmet. Also was almost lucky enough to capture a Jerry but a doughboy beat me to it. He was hiding in a dug out. Looked like he wan’t as old as “Bugs” and he was scared almost to death. After monkeying around a while we hopped an ambulance and rode back toward Auzeville. So that finished the day’s fun. But you ought to have seen the dead Huns. Some had legs blown off. Some had their heads and shoulders off and some were in pieces only. A great many had been burned by mustard gas and were burned to a crisp.

        • Koko says:

          Yup. War is bad but we know why it happens.

        • Octopus says:

          That letter has the light-hearted tone of many soldiers’ missives, where they leave out the terror and most of the gore. My Dad said his CO would instruct them to take it easy on the bloody, pants-shitting stuff, and of course there was a censoring office that removed any strategic details. Still, enough gets through to give you the general idea that it’s not exactly a party.

          • Bunk X says:

            His daughter collected and saved all the letters. All were very polite and understated, including his description of trench lice (“…a very peculiar feeling”).

          • Octopus says:

            They should publish those letters, for posterity’s sake. Like they did in the book about my Dad’s B-29 crew, with the tailgunner’s letters to his mother. He was still alive to discuss what was happening at the time of each letter with his daughter, who put the book together. They used the book in an MSU history class. I really love the book, because there are pics of my Dad at age 20, and he’s mentioned several times in the book. I know I’ve talked about it before in this space, but so what? 🤨

          • Octopus says:

            That’s Dad in the front row, second from left. He was the radioman. Everyone in the crew received at least the Distinguished Flying Cross, and a few got Purple Hearts, for shrapnel wounds. They took a lot of flak. A couple of times, the plane was so damaged they didn’t think they would make it back to Tinian.

            When I was 20, I was doing different things. 😂

        • Bunk X says:

          Actually his daughter did. My copy is unfortunately lost in the clutter.
          Years ago I contacted her and asked if I could post the letters sequentially and in real time. She declined for personal reasons.

    Who are these imaginary people they’re talking about? I haven’t heard a single person say that they’re happy to be unemployed or working from home, and none of them are billionaires. I know plenty of non-vaccine types and not one has ever likened vaccines to the mark of the beast. Lefties live in a fantasy world where money grows on trees and liberty-minded people are the evil trolls that inhabit the hillsides. They have no connection to the real world, except that they’re happy to spend the money that the normal, working people earn and surrender to the government to redistribute.

    • rightymouse says:

      I’m retired, sort of. I still work for my ex-boss and I have my own LLC, but work from home. That said, I could never be sitting around on unemployment, disability, social security or whatever and be content to do nothing. Normal, healthy humans have a need to feel useful. The ones who could be working, but prefer to be taken care of by the government (taxpayers) are useless to society.

      • windbag says:

        All but one person in my family are essential workers, some working from home. The one who isn’t is going nuts just sitting around. People are meant to be productive and creative. The idle class that welfare has created is unnatural.

  12. rightymouse says:

    Colonel Anderson was about to start the morning briefing to his staff.
    While waiting for the coffee machine to finish brewing, the colonel
    decided to pose a question to all assembled.
    He explained that his wife, Fran, had been a bit frisky the night before and
    he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep.
    He posed the question of just how much of sex was “work” and how much
    of it was “pleasure?”
    A Major chimed in with 75%-25% in favor of work. A Captain said it was 50%-50%.
    A lieutenant responded with 25%-75% in favor of pleasure, depending
    upon his state of inebriation at the time.
    There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the Private who was in
    charge of making the coffee and asked for HIS opinion.
    Without any hesitation, the young Private responded, “Sir, it has to be
    100% pleasure.
    The colonel was surprised and as you might guess, asked why?
    “Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have
    me doing it for them.”

      Heheh…as the grunts used to say about Gen. George “Blood And Guts” Patton, “Our blood, his guts.” Patron was a great general, btw, and his tactical genius no doubt saved thousands of his troops’ lives, but there’s no real protection for the tip of the spear, the troops on the front lines. They get destroyed, even in a winning campaign.

    Hanson knocks another one out of the park. I’m for maintaining the shutdown until May 1st, and no longer. At this point, even in hard-hit Detroit, the numbers are coming down, and the temporary field hospitals are being scaled back and/or eliminated. The end is in sight, for this thing. Hallelujah!

    Everyone’s Dying and No One Cares
    Are Americans Indifferent to Death on a Mass Scale?

    umair haque

    Apr 22 · 9 min read

    Here are three simple facts, and one observation.
    1. There’s a 9/11 happening in America every single day right now. About 2,500 people are dying of Coronavirus.
    2. America’s going to pass a grim milestone in the next few days. The death toll will have reached fifty thousand people.
    3. 90% of these deaths are needless.
    Think about that for a moment. The scale of such tragedy. And then think about this.
    There’s a deafening silence about all that. Yes, I overstate it in the title — deliberately, to make a point. Do you think we care as much as we should? I read — as you do — endlessly, about what’s considered serious; the economic impact, the politics, which politician is doing what; and what’s considered less serious; who should walk the dog, what to cook, what to watch on Netflix. And yet on the subject above — mass death at the scale of a nightmare — I read, hear, see exactly nothing. That is because there is nothing. The whole subject is being politely avoided.
    My friends, we are in deep, deep denial. About the catastrophe we are currently living through. If, for any other reason, 2500 people were dying every day…we’d speak of nothing else.
    Let’s put all that in perspective. Nothing in post-war history has killed fifty thousand people in America, or twenty thousand in the UK. We are living through a catastrophe without modern precedent or parallel.
    And yet…do you really hear about the toll? Doesn’t it seem odd to you that we’re not really grieving as societies, not even having days of collective mourning? That we don’t seem to be affected any way beyond selfishly? That we’re clamoring impatiently for life to return to normal? Sure, everyone’s weary and anxious for themselves and their loved ones these days. But what does it say that we don’t seem to be processing the true impact of a catastrophe like this? Doesn’t the sentiment seem to be at odds with mass death, fail to reflect it entirely? Why don’t I read a single headline that speaks of such horrific numbers? And why don’t we seem capable of the gravity and grace such horror and tragedy calls for?
    Now, I don’t want this to read as a jeremiad — it’s not. Rather, I’m genuinely interested in the question: why do we seem indifferent to death on a mass scale? Call me morbid, call me foolish, call me whatever you like. I think it says something about us. Deafening silences always do.
    A generous interpretation of all the above might go like this. We’re still numb. We’re in a kind of collective shock. It’s all happened too fast and too hard for us to really “process” yet, which means to really accept as real. Events have outpaced our emotions. The grief is there — and it will come out, one day, in the near future, when we’ve had time to breathe again.
    Alas, I’m an economist. I’m not one prone to sugarcoat harsh realities. I’m not given to such charitable interpretations. I can only go by a society’s actions. And it appears to me that our actions belie a certain kind of attitude.
    It seems to me that we really are indifferent to death on a mass scale.
    That should hardly be surprising, though. Here are some other things we’ve been indifferent to at a social level. Concentration camps, kids in cages, family separations, paper-checking, demagoguery, hate, and so forth. Sure, there’s a small number of us who care — but let’s be honest, it’s a very small number. And then there are the endle That’ss wars. That too was death on mass scale. How many countries are we bombing? Does anyone even know? Like I said, indifference.
    But that very indifference can be seen closer to home, too — not just when we put dirty Mexicans in cages and kill filthy A-rabs. The average American is the only person in the world — the only person in the world — who denies his neighbors healthcare, medicine, retirement, childcare, elderly care, and so on. Literally nobody else on the planet does anymore. But isn’t denying everyone else healthcare the precise equivalent of indifference to death on a mass scale? If it isn’t the same, how is it any different? So Americans make each other beg for pennies to “crowdfund” healthcare online, and call that “compassion” — the world, though, calls it indifference.
    We should hardly be surprised that Americans are indifferent to death on a mass scale, given all the above. When have they ever really cared about each other? What would be surprising is if they started, magically, to not be indifferent to mass death.
    There’s a lesson there — at least for those with strong enough stomachs to continue learning it.
    One thing Coronavirus teaches us is that Americans are genuinely indifferent to mass death. They just don’t care about it on any higher level at all. Sure, they’re hysterical about the economic impact — but the psychological toll, the moral price, the ethical cost, the human dimension? Nobody much in America really cares about that whatsoever. Like I said, there hasn’t even been a day of mourning — and you never really see the death toll discussed, much less grieved over.
    Now, that’s in stark contrast to much of the rest of the world. Societies like New Zealand acted swiftly and decisively to prevent mass death. European societies struck hard by Coronavirus are in a period of deep, collective grief. Asian nations are learning how to navigate crises in ways of their own. Only America and Britain, it seems, are indifferent — totally, utterly, absolute, as societies.
    The question then is this: why are Americans indifferent to mass death? What has to happen to make a society end up like that? You see, we are not beings who are naturally indifferent to death. Even a child cries at the idea of dying. We are born with a natural horror and repulsion of death. For a society to therefore be indifferent to mass death isn’t just weird, or strange, or even gruesome — but deeply and profoundly unnatural.
    Being indifferent to mass death is one of the ways in which the rest of the world has come to regard America as uncivilized. “How,” my European friends ask me, over and over again, at the dog park, “can Americans live with themselves denying everyone else healthcare?”
    I shrug, and give them my stock answer. It’s one Americans don’t like to hear — but seems to enlighten everyone else.
    Americans are especially violent people. They are steeped in a history and culture of brutality like no other on planet earth. America was first the original constitutional slave state. Then it was the society which pioneered a global slave trade, raiding an entire continent for human bodies. Then, even when it fought a civil war against that very idea — it didn’t really free the slaves, but segregated them.
    Now, after segregation “ended” — I put in quotes because in truth it never really ended, as copious statistics show — Americans, the “real” ones, needed someone new to exploit. Because by this point, exploitation was all that America knew. By this juncture — the 1970s — exploitation had literally been formalized into equations and theorems, that America’s intellectuals called economics. Their whole goal and purpose was to justify and legitimate exploitation. So when segregation ended, and the system needed a new class to exploit, guess who it turned out to be? This time, everyone. Even the white working class and middle class began to exploited ruthlessly, too.
    That is why there’s a very precise moment in American economic history where the truth reveals itself. American incomes began to stagnate in 1971 — more or less the precise moment segregation ended. Coincidence? Hardly. It’s a relationship, which proves that America always needed to exploit someone, and if it couldn’t be blacks — hey, why not just make it everyone? Everyone, at least, that was in the middle and working class.
    American history can therefore be divided up into three chapters: slavery, segregation, and predatory capitalism.
    If you understand all that, then you should also see something gruesome and strange at work. Americans — even the “real” ones, the white middle and working class — came themselves to ultimately be exploited by the very ideology and system that once exploited others for their benefit. What did they expect? One great lesson of history is that if you buy into a system of exploitation, beware: you might just be next in line.
    Now, you might think that the “real” Americans — the white working and middle class would have learned something from that. From the system that once exploited only blacks turning on them, at last, too. That they might have said: “Hey, you know what? Exploitation, we’ve learned, backfires. Let’s build a decent society.”
    But they never learned that lesson. What happened after segregation? Reagan did, where the “real” Americans began to do the only thing they could to re-establish dominance and control. They refused to fund any real public goods at a social level. “I won’t pay for those dirty people’s healthcare, schools, retirement!” The real American was trying to re-establish a society where they were supreme, separate, on top. Even if it cost them having a working society at all. Because, after all, the price was that they never had healthcare and so forth themselves. But so what? They gained what they were really after: a feeling of supremacy and power and dominance.
    And that, bizarrely, is still where Americans are. Even the “good” ones. What did Democrat-leaning voters just do? They rejected public healthcare…in the middle of a literal global pandemic. What the? Who does that?
    That’s not a rhetorical question: it’s a real one. As in: what has to happen to break a person’s mind to be foolish enough to turn down better healthcare during a deadly pandemic?
    Such a person must really, really believe in violence. They might not think they do — like many Americans, they might think violence is something that only happens at the point of a gun. But that only makes them foolish. Because me denying you decent healthcare during a literal pandemic — or not even during one — is violence too. I’m saying that I’m indifferent to your cancer, disease, suffering. That I don’t care if your kids fall ill. That I couldn’t care less if your wife or husband or brother or sister gets sick and dies. It makes no difference at all to me.
    But why would I be indifferent to your suffering? The only reason is that I must think mine outweighs it. In that way, Americans are narcissists. And narcissists, as we all know, can’t really care about each other. They are happy to do violence to see their overweening emotional needs met. So it is with Americans. As long as they are told they are special and they have big cars and big TVs, it seems, they could genuinely care less about each other.
    But you can’t build a society of narcissists. You can try, but you’ll fail. Such a place will not have the capacity to form social bonds. Because it can’t form social bonds, it won’t be able to build functioning institutions which take collective action. Because it’s institutions won’t be able to function, it won’t be able to offer a working social contract to anyone. And because it can’t offer a working social contract, living standards will fall, and it will collapse, predictably, ultimately, into fascist-authoritarianism.
    Translation: a society of narcissists won’t have functioning hospitals, schools, banks, or anything else. It’ll become a bitter, brutal battle for self-preservation, in which the most violent, greedy, and brutal rise to the top. Sound like America collapsing so far? Then consider this.
    In a society of narcissists, the biggest, most violent, most brutally selfish and callous one will rise to the top. Isn’t that obvious? Hence, Trump, and his dynasty.
    It’s not a coincidence or an anomaly that the world’s biggest narcissist is America’s lunatic President. It’s what was always going to happen to a society of people who were hyper narcissistic, totally self-absorbed, utterly self-consumed, each one thinking only of themselves, and never of anyone else, let alone the whole world. A society like that wouldn’t just collapse into authoritarianism, as it’s now obviously doing — weirder, more gruesomely, it would be completely indifferent to mass death, and such indifference, too, would reveal what it was really made of.
    Narcissism is the great malady at the root of American collapse. Americans were born in a kind of violent narcissism, a profound violent so deep they enslaved a whole continent, unable to see anyone else as their equals. Narcissism is the curse of a Promised Land — if it belongs to you, you must be a special person, indeed. And if you are that special — well then, why not do a little violence, to show the subhumans their place? And so a Darwinian logic came to rule America, and still does.
    That Americans are indifferent to the deaths of 50,000 of their fellow citizens teaches us something painful, deep, and true. What happens when we try to build a society on narcissism? We fail. We end up in a place so cruel, so selfish, so vain — that even death on a mass scale ceases to matter. Because all along, the only thing that has ever mattered is the individual, exerting his will to power, by exploiting and dominating someone weaker. Bang!
    Welcome to the logic of American collapse.

      Wow. What a complete idiot.

      How does he summon the strength to be a “member” of such a corrupted people?

      The pain must be insurmountable. Make sure he’s red-flagged.

      “The average American is the only person in the world — the only person in the world — who denies his neighbors healthcare, medicine, retirement, childcare, elderly care, and so on. Literally nobody else on the planet does anymore. But isn’t denying everyone else healthcare the precise equivalent of indifference to death on a mass scale? If it isn’t the same, how is it any different? So Americans make each other beg for pennies to “crowdfund” healthcare online, and call that “compassion” — the world, though, calls it indifference.
      We should hardly be surprised that Americans are indifferent to death on a mass scale, given all the above. When have they ever really cared about each other? What would be surprising is if they started, magically, to not be indifferent to mass death.
      There’s a lesson there — at least for those with strong enough stomachs to continue learning it.
      One thing Coronavirus teaches us is that Americans are genuinely indifferent to mass death.”

      What a manipulative asshole. He’s trying to shame the ignorant into believing his crap. My neighbor is denying me healthcare, medicine, retirement, childcare, elderly care? Uh, no. Not their job to take care of me financially. I’d love to know how many neighbors this SOB has offered to contribute to for their healthcare, etc ? What a lying commie bastard. Then again, that’s what they do best.

      Started reading it. By my 4th “hunh??” I was done.

      Mark Levin brought up something today I hadn’t heard before. NY Governor Cuomo mandated that nursing homes are required to admit (or re-admit) residents who tested positive, despite warnings from the industry of the danger…

      Nah. I’m not a beach guy. Too much aggravation packing up, finding a decent parking space, hauling the shit down to the surf, getting sunburnt and feeling miserable for the rest of the afternoon.

      On the other hand, we had an 2nd floor office on the N,B, peninsula that overlooked a parking lot a block from the beach. Lotta action there. Girls would hang up towels in the windows while they changed into their strings, but we had the unblocked angles and a telephoto lens.

      Taking a lunchtime stroll with wraparound shades was always interesting.

    I cut my own hair the other day. I had been thinking of getting it cut before the lock down so it was really shaggy and long on the sides. I could do a Red Skelton impression.

    So I took my beard trimmer using about 1/2 in. attachment. And started cutting. At first I thought this is going to be horrendous. But it wasn’t that bad. I left the top long because the trimmer started to bog down. So I have a boyish flop on top. My daughter did the back for me. Both daughter and wife were pleased.

    I’ve been cutting my own hair since around 1990. People can’t believe it when I tell them. You can get really good at, with a little practice.

    I figure, in 30 years, with my former pace of a haircut every month or so, at $20-25 a crack, I’ve saved about a million bucks on haircuts, give or take. 😃

    Baby Brother got the Big Warning a couple of years ago, with a slight case of heart failure while walking up some stairs at work. He took it seriously, which I think is the prudent course of action when you need a pacemaker to keep living. Lost 60 lbs., and started walking “with purpose” everyday. Is now hosting a Weight Watchers meeting everyday, like some kind of born-again fitness evangelist. And I thought I was bad… 😂

    • rightymouse says:

      He looks great!! 🙂

      • Octopus says:

        Agreed. He was always big, from the time he was born, at 11.5 lbs. The last of nine, for St. Mom. 😄

        Not really fat, most of his life, but just a big person. The four other boys are all 5’10”, and he’s 6’2”. Now he’s tall and slim. The only working out he’s cleared to do with his pacemaker is walking and light dumbbells, so he does it religiously. Oh, he’s also quite religious, the “most Catholic” of all the sibs. Most of us are lapsed, to one degree or another.

      Nice! We had a full-on, homemade Mexican fiesta, except for the tequila and cerveza — still on the wagon. 😃
