The Propaganda Of Incompetents
 As the "recovery summer" turns into a nightmare, one thing has become painfully clear: This is the most economically incompetent administration since the Great Depression.

Two years into the Obama era, when the U.S. should be enjoying a booming recovery from the 2007-08 meltdown, with millions of new jobs and higher incomes for all, all we see is economic wreckage from the unbelievably foolish policies pursued by the White House and theDemocrat-controlled Congress.

Whatever his reason, it's a good thing, that.  General Lavelle was scape-gated.   I hate using that term, because President Nixon was absolutely right in just about everything he did re: Vietnam.  Had he been a Democrat, and he damn well could have been in many regards (except he hated communism), Nixon would in the eyes of Liberals stand as one of America's greats.

Living Wills

 Last night,  my kids and I were sitting in  the living room and I said to them , 'I never want to live  in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine  and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens,  just pull the plug.'

They  unplugged the Computer, and threw out my wine.

As an aside,  if you close your eyes and listen to the narrative, it will sound an awful lot like the German translation of a passage from The Perfumed Garden.   *shudder*

Feingold's Fake

Feingold's Friends

Boned Jello

Aside from "fake voters"  being appropriate fodder, in the context of  Democrats and elections,  it ought serve as a warning that nothing today escapes scrutiny.  This is from the WTMJ Radio (Milwaukee)  website, titled  FEINGOLD'S FAKE PERSON?

In Senator Feingold’s new ad, he features some footage designed to make the argument that his $787 stimulus bill created Wisconsin jobs.

One piece of footage features a nameplate being placed outside an office or cubicle, and it appears the person named does not exist – not in voter databases, nothing on Lexus-Nexus, no such person on Facebook or other social media.  In fact, the only Elizabeth Ackland that could be found in Wisconsin died in 1877.

It would be strange, if Feingold’s argument is true and Wisconsinites really did benefit from his stimulus bill, that he would need to make up a person, or use a long-departed person, to represent a job created in his campaign ad.

Slick Times

"Slick Times," 1993

While I was surfing through ancient archives yesterday I came across this picture.  It's significance to me is this.

I was driving around in upstate New York in 1993.  The radio show I was listening to had as a guest a guy starting a new magazine, "Slick Times."  I had by that time decided Bill Clinton's presidency was going to be a bad experience,  and was delighted to find any narrative written about him that wasn't sycophantic puffery.  I subscribed. I think the cost was $18 for four issues. This is a picture from the first issue, and the first I ever saved on a computer, other than family stuff.  The original of this picture was of Slick's visit to the troops in Korea ( I think).  The stripe was an obvious reference to his draft evasion, but also to the troops being disarmed in the areas he visited, including along the DMZ.  I'm not making that up.  If I knew then what I know now, I might today be a Bahamian citizen.
