Moron Blues

" . . . all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily (and) adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." H.L. Menchen

Well there you have it, plain fact that morons rule the roost 'round these parts. For a real twisted view of what can happen if morons divide and multiply enough times, rent Idiocracy.

Meanwhile morons will prevail and intelligence will have to go underground to avoid being rounded up and disposed of.

Start digging!

Read all about it!

Not a story for the squeamish.

I have often said that Americans are the mirror image of the president.

Let us look at Hitler Bush! He is an idiot and he is insane.

Yes, Americans are idiots and they are insane.

Sad but a truism!!!

Great post. Nicely done.

In these here U-nited States we-uns is moron farmin, raisin up a new batch, nary a smart-un in the bunch.

Clever--good one. So true.

Yes, Gerald. I know you want us to see this article. I have it tabbed but am physically unable to bring it up. I think I've heard something about this. It sounds utterly icky. It's not Halloween yet.

Speaking of Halloween. I love the holiday. I'm expecting scary links Denmaster. Knowing you--mischievous one--you'll dig 'em up.

Alzheimers actually is cobwebs of stuff forming on the brain.

Brain-eating, brain-rotting.

Oh God, I'm going to be sick.

I never told you guys this story. We met a doctor who was world-reknowned as an Alzheimers' researcher and the husband of a lovely woman who set up a family Alzheimers Day Care Center. While my father participated there, the doctor died mysteriously of, get this.....

Those very same cobwebs of strings on the brains of Alzheimic patients--started covering his heart.


Why does God have to be so ironic?

Carey said...

Or is it us--setting up our lives to be ironic and thus entertaining? For fun and existential giggles.

As for ignorant Americans... no doubt a majority fell for that scam bush pulled with the climate change conference. While there's another one talking about what they can DO, his was talking about talking. He's like... let's set a goal to talk about this again.
That's sufficient to sound concerned to igno Americans and it LOOKS like he's engaged on the problem.

Alan said...

Here's the article I was referring to about bush's climate change conference. At least he admitted that climate change is real and humans have a role in causeing it.
But read the article and see what I'm saying, that he just talked about talking about it. Even gave a plan for small countries to reduce their emissions by 2012. What tha fk is THAT? That's like allowing everybody to commute in their own semi-rig while outlawing lawnmowers. *asshole

Bush seeks to change U.S. image on global warming

In his speech, Bush acknowledged that climate change is real and that human activity is a factor.

"By setting this goal, we acknowledge there is a problem, and by setting this goal, we commit ourselves to doing something about it," he said. "We share a common responsibility: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while keeping our economies growing."

Carey, when you say that you're not physically able to make more comments, does that mean your shingles have returned? It is my understanding that shingles can return.

Carey, I do not care what party a person favors but country and people must be ranked over party.

Carey, my posts reflect that I do not like Hitler Bush and his Nazi regime. With regard to Hitler Bush and company I am not very objective.

Carey, overall I try to be objective in my posts. I believe for the most part I have been objective. When it comes to my religion, I believe that I have been objective because I can be critical in certain areas. With my party I lean toward the Democrats but I will criticize them when they need criticism. No one with feelings can support the Nazi Party. With regard to my country, I believe that we are the UNITED STATES OF EVIL. My belief in this fact is solidified by Stephen Lendman's article, A CULTURE OF VIOLENCE. I enjoy listening toand reading Bishop Gumbleton's homilies because he has been at the forefront of justice and peace for 40 years. I also enjoy reading Father Dear and Sister Joan's article in the National Catholic Reporter.

Carey, I believe that my feeling comes from being objective in most cases. I have a difficult time being objective toward Hitler Bush and his Nazi regime because I believe that they are into hatred, mass murders, war crimes, torture, corruption decadence, greed, and lies. Just the thought of Hitler Bush and his Nazi regime makes me PUKE.

Nice article in the 2007 Sep 10/17 issue of The Nation entitled The Hundred-Mile Diet.

The idea is to become a localvore, only consuming foods produced within a hunred mile radius of where you live, summer and winter. You'll have better quality foods without significant tranportation chanrges included. Can you eat well? You betcha!

Indeed, in England, some farmers are choosing to raise alcapa (mostly for the wool, but...), or water buffalo (best mozarilla cheese), or other non-native species and profit quite nicely out of this. [This is from another article.]

Locally, I'm trying to promote raising llamas for the meat. Better for the ground than cattle and tastes about the same as corn-fed beef even than the llamas are only grass-fed.

A truism in Montana is that the shortest distance between two points is under construction.

We had a great time in that wonderland called Glacier National Park, but the Going-to-the-Sun Road was closed, making room for 24/7 heavy road repairs in the weeks before the snows set in for the winter. The park was still opened, but if one wanted to go deep into the area, it was on foot or bicycle or not at all.

Foul weather will shut down work in the coming weeks. Last November heavy rains caused a series of washouts on the road. A few days later, damaged areas on the road were buried in snow. Road crews
will be removing a temporary bridge that spanned a gaping washout in the road during the summer.

After the bridge is removed, construction of a retaining wall will get under way to support a reconstructed road. Retaining walls will be built at two other locations in the same area. There’s a danger of a large avalanche coming down and knocking that bridge over the edge.

We did an informal survey of presidential wannabee bumperstickers while we were in the Whitefish, Glacier, Kalispell, Flathead region of all, we spotted four (ONLY FOUR!) stickers.

Sorry folks, but all four were HILLARY '08 -- one was side-by-side with the "coexist"
here sticker and one was beside a more general PEACE sticker. So....apparently the Jon Tester Democrats in Montana see things a little differently than other Dems/progressives/liberals/change-seekers.

I was pleased to read an article in the Daily InterLake in Kalispell about a local woman who just returned from Iran. (She traveled to Cuba a couple of years ago and the locals swarmed her for more information.) She plans on giving a talk at the Whitefish and Kalispell libraries -- she promotes the value of travel in learning and sharing and understanding.

I talked with a 40-something fellow from Whitefish. He told me he voted for Dem Jon Tester AGAINST Republican incumbent Conrad Burns "because Burns and his buddies in D.C. haven't done anything for me or for my community."

"Besides," he said, "those people didn't know we exist out here until it looked like Tester was gonna beat the pants offa Burns." Then Laura Bush "comes parading out here to campaign for Burns, and Bob Dole's wife (what's her name?), and Bill First shows up taking like he's gonna make sure there's a doctor on every street corner because we lack doctors all over the state, and then the last straw was when that asshole cheney comes to Whitefish fundraising for Burns."

He said the only reason bush, himself, didn't come out to Montana was because he was afraid someone might offer to take him on a trail ride -- ON A HORSE...a REAL horse! He laughed and said, "those glass house dude ranch fellas aren't foolin' anyone anymore."

micki said...

talking.....not taking

micki said...

I think the localvores are on the right track, providing all of us with good information, though I doubt there is much of a movement to eating local. Necessity may change that....

Exploring the possibilities of eating local is, in itself, a contribution to knowledge.

Dr. B, have you eaten llama?

DEN said...

Llama steak! MMMMMMMM

better than veal!

Actually never ate it but I suggest the famous PETA rule:
'People Eating Tasty Animals'
should leave animal eating wide open for gastric exploration.

Throw one on the barbie!

Man, I'm loving being able to read Maureen Dowd again (NYTimes Select is history). Check out this line from her latest...

Without nepotism, Hillary would be running for the president of Vassar. But then, without nepotism, W. would be pumping gas in Midland — and not out of the ground.
