COVID prediction

Between Fauci repeating what he said at the very beginning of the pandemic, that everyone’s likely to get it eventually, and these news stories batting the following idea(see pics below) around, I predict a narrative shift to “Just get it and get it over with.” People who are currently triple-masked and quadruple vaxxed will add “”Catch the fever” frames to their Facebook profiles and go … Continue reading COVID prediction

The new “cancel culture“

I’ve noticed a trend: A ton of major entertainment events were scheduled at the very beginning of the Delta surge, a time when the predominant narrative was that it was more dangerous than ever to go places and enjoy life. Weeks later, they started cancelling them. Sure, makes sense. They didn’t know. This stuff had been in the works for months, most likely. I’ll certainly … Continue reading The new “cancel culture“

Vintage Ads: windows to the past

Recently I came across some old ads from the early-to-mid 21st Century. What a primitive era that was. Just take a look at these: We’ve come so far in so little time. What does the future hold?

Those who will not be silent are either demonized or viewed as crazy because of their failure to conform and subsequently … Continue reading Conform or be cast out

My personal preferences cannot be challenged by anyone else. My reasons can, but I’m not obligated to provide any. Conversation over, no more questions. OPINION: Most cops are assholes. FACT: I tend to strongly … Continue reading Can’t argue the facts

The Song Remains the Same

The human race hasn’t improved one bit–ever. It hasn’t gotten better, and it hasn’t gotten worse. Its motivations and behaviors have remained unchanged since it began keeping records of itself. I can only assume that prior to that, it was ruled by the same forces of greed, lust, envy, love, hatred, cruelty, kindheartedness, compassion and tribalism it still serves. We pick and choose from that … Continue reading The Song Remains the Same
