“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished
unless they kill in large numbers
and to the sound of trumpets.”


- Voltaire

What seems like Hot Topic Of The Moment of which we think the world will tilt is really more like watching leaves pass by in a river, forgetting the last one as the next one comes along. So I usually don't comment on the petty intrigues we like to distract ourselves with in order to attach importance to our lives. Let's face it, most of us are like those leaves regardless of our hopes and dreams.

But "bar talk" can be revealing of a person and of where he or she is coming from and thus can be quite useful as a mirror sometimes. Like when you ask someone what he does for fun and the reply is, "Shoot things." Two words that tell a lot. So here's some bar talk from me for what it's worth. To help feed (my) interest I'll insert hot girls between my inanities.

BANNON BUMBLES BACK TO BREITBART

Nobody heard of the fucker before and now he's headed back under his rock. He's got "his weapons" back, aka figments of his imagination. Breitbart is where arrested adolescents go to stay arrested, living in a fantasy world of self-importance. It's much easier pretending to have a purpose than actually having one.


PRESIDENT DUCK TALKS ABOUT WAR

Lets face it, we don't give a fuck about the Afghan people so there'll never be "victory". America is just too afraid to live without an enemy we can put bullets in. We periodically update our rationale for flag-waving and grandstanding purposes and this is another such occasion where human life is distilled to combat fatigues, slogans, profiteering, and death. Now that's a plan!


ALL THE "BAD" STATUES ARE GONE! NOW WHAT?

Inanimate statues were never a problem when we elected a black man and deemed ourselves non-racists. Now we elected a person who markets (and he is, after all, a pure pathological marketer and nothing else) racism so we're in a desperate hurry to hide our hatred. Does removing "bad" statues make our hearts pure? Some political types will actually argue yes. But after the removals we'll find nothing has changed.


SPEAKING OF NAZIS, DO I REALLY HAVE TO CARE?

All those people out here are going to "stop Nazi hate"? Really? It's just a big waste of time and that will be realized at some point when there's a Nazi rally and no one attends or counter-protests because it's happening at the same time as a new "Game Of Thrones" episode. It's not really a movement and if it is then it's a bowel movement. This too will be flushed in a year.


MORE PEOPLE HATE TRUMP EVERY DAY

Just say yes! It's not what you're against that counts but only what you're for. "I hate Trump because:"

"He's not fucking enough people!"
"All I care about is getting the cookie he promised - no matter who gets screwed in the process!"
"He makes us look like assholes and I don't want to change!"

See? Poll numbers may drop but not necessarily because people are growing a conscience. It's like throwing out Saddam so we could get ISIS, which is what we turned out to be for - so that's what we got. Read the hearts, not the polls.

BBE taught me the wisdom of mixing gratuitous nudity with political opinions.

The issue with the statues isn't about the statues. Like with the Confederate flag, it's about a widespread reinterpretation of the Civil War. We're finally acknowledging that the war was not about states' rights but about the preservation of slavery and that it was an otherwise pointless, costly and awful act of treason by entities that had full representation and were not oppressed. Given that many have interpreted the last election as the South finally winning the Civil War, this is an interesting turn of events. It represents a national increase in sensitivity to racism. I don't know how far this will take us but, as steps go, this one is unusually blatant, particularly given its Southern and Republican support.

Only racists are sensitive to racism, innocents are not. I didn't say I was unaware of the political arguments, just that I don't buy them.

Where are the naked men?

Those will have to be in your post, Phyllis!

To fully illustrate the insanity of politicization, check this out: "ESPN pulls announcer Robert Lee off Virginia game". Maybe we should just kill all people with that name because they represent slavery and their deaths will demonstrate our growing sensitivity! That or we could just fucking THINK!
