THE ABSURD TIMES

By now, the fascination (or pick a word) with Trump seems to be dead, so we can go on to other things.

This is despite all the reporters going out and digging up people that still support him, even people of color. All it really indicates is how degenerate the human species is. I am often reminded of what is supposedly a quote from Mark Twain as delivered by Hal Holbrook in that Twainish voice: "Man, we are told, is the reasoning animal. Now I wonder who found that out."

So, Israel is claiming that one of it’s jets was shot down over Israeli airspace: in other words, the Golan Heights. Actually, that is actually Syrian airspace, but repetition serves for truth these days and so it is.

This interview, below, is over a speech Nikki Haley made, not at the UN where she would have been laughed off the platform, but at a U.S. Military base. See, the military is happy to see here because, if they are nice enough, they may get to march in a parade and salute the Donald.

We can forget about all the vets who are homeless, suffering from PTSD, missing limbs, and so on. Some vets, believe it or not, after being welcomed into the military, are in danger of being deported. Since they came here without being born here, but instead snuck over the border at the age of 3 or 4 years old, the evil and illegal aliens, we have no further use for them. We want a parade. Maybe a wall and a parade?

Anyway, it takes a bit of history to follow this interview with Colin Powell’s assistant, the guy who helped him write the speech that got us into Iraq in the first place. Even this guy has taken to using Gore Vidal’s phrase "The United States of Amnesia."

So, how did it happen? Well, we wanted to get "communists" out of Afghanistan. (Never mind that the USSR was never really Marxist. We needed an enemy and they supplied one for us). So, we subsidized an bunch of crazy Jihadists (Hey, they believed in God and we Believed in God and the USSR was officially atheist, despite all the Russian Orthodox Churches) to attack them. Our star player was Bin Laden, a fact so conveniently forgotten.) He managed to get some place to crash into some building in New York and that gave the Chicken Hawks a chance to attack Afghanistan, and from there to Iraq.

Then there was Saddam Hussein, very valuable in waging war against Iran. However, he had an uncomfortable way of helping Palestinians, so he had to go. We started out by claiming that he had nuclear weapons, but we knew that was not true. We do not attack countries with nuclear weapons. We finally settled on weapons of mass destruction. Actually, Bin Laden thought of Saddam as an infidel.

Well, we decided that Saddam had to go. The rest is explained in the interview:

Fifteen years ago this week, Secretary of State General Colin Powell gave a speech to the United Nations arguing for war with Iraq, saying the evidence was clear: Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. It was a speech Powell would later call a blot on his career. Is President Trump doing the same thing now with Iran? We speak to Powell’s former chief of staff, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson. He recently wrote a piece titled "I Helped Sell the False Choice of War Once. It’s Happening Again."

Birthday wishes for Ahed Tamimi

Today is your birthday, but I woke up in the middle of the night, not with excitement, but rather uncomfortable and short of breath. This birthday of yours different than the ones before it. Yes, it is the day you were born in, but you are forcefully kept farther away than I can bare. Still, you are closer to my heart than you could ever imagine.

One of the many birthday cakes for Ahed from worldwide celebrations

Birthday… and trial

To be able to write you in a moment like this, I had to lay down in your bed. Then, when I rested my head on your little pillow, you recharged my soul was charged to the brim with gratitude the memory of your generosity. How can my spirit not be lifted when you were the one who brought the world to a gale like…

Hatte genug schon?

DIE ABSURD-ZEITEN

gazanumoneshithole.jpg

Die Illustration hat nichts mit dem Inhalt zu tun. Genau die Art von Dingen, die wir vermissen.

Nun, ok, hier leben wir. Dies ist jetzt ein Land, in dem ein Typ herumgeht und Frauen an ihren Fotzen packt, prahlt damit und wird zum Präsidenten gewählt. Wir haben Kerle, die vor Palmen, die sie kaum kennen, in Palmen tunken. Nein, ich verstehe es nicht.

Wir haben die Ärztin des Olympic Turner Teams, die Mädchen (6 Jahre und älter) nackt auszieht und seinen Penis gegen sie reibt, während sie mit ihren Fingern in ihre Vagina graben. Ich habe so etwas schon erlebt, als ich noch ein Jugendlicher war und im Sport antrat, aber das war noch nicht einmal annähernd so. Im Gesicht bin ich mir immer noch nicht einmal sicher, ob es das Gleiche war. Das ist so offensichtlich, dass es nicht falsch interpretiert werden kann. Mehr unten, aber hier ist Fox News Version:

https://shareblue.com/fox-news-host-says-156-child-gmnasts-sollte-hielten-einen-abuser-/#.WmohwILghQt.twitter.

Oh, und dann bezahlte Trump Stormy, was auch immer $ 13K sein mochte, um über ihre Affäre oder Sexszene zu schweigen, während Melania schwanger war. Hör kaum ein Wort darüber.

Bill Clinton wurde fast über einen "Hummer" im Weißen Haus angeklagt und der Verfolger scheint Monica gewesen zu sein (aber wer weiß es wirklich? Ratet mal, was ist "ist"?) Nixon? Oh, vergiss es, das wird einfach komisch für mich.

Während all dieser Scheiße weitergeht, wird das Land wie Termiten in einem Holzhaus weggefressen. All dieser Mist ist offensichtlich ablenkend.

Ich habe jedoch eine Frau gefragt, die uns gesagt hat, dass wir Männer unseren Teil tun müssen, also habe ich nach einer Liste gefragt. Sie sagte, das sei nicht ihre Verantwortung, aber sie gab einen Artikel weiter, der vorschlug, dass wir gegen das Umkleideraum-Gespräch waren. Jetzt nehme ich an, sie meinte, oder der Artikel meinte, nicht in einer tatsächlich organisierten Sportumkleide. Das wäre ziemlich peinlich. Angenommen jemand sagte etwas sexistisches.

"Ich widerspreche dieser Art von Objektivierung von Frauen."

"Hey, bist du schwul oder so?"

"Nein, entschuldige, aber wenn du lange genug warst, wird vielleicht der richtige Typ für dich kommen."

Nein, es wäre viel zu blutig. Nicht wirklich Kricket, weißt du das nicht? Ich frage mich, wie viele denken Hillary verloren, weil sie eine Frau war? Nun, ich bin sicher, dass Putin das nicht so sehr in Betracht gezogen hat, als er ihre Einmischung in die ukrainische Regierung getan hat, Russland in den UN-Deal über Libyen geschleudert hat, und verschiedene andere Dinge. In der Tat, er könnte dies auf das gesamte Land der USA übertragen haben und war ziemlich harmlos, es mit Donald Trump bestraft zu sehen. Ich bin mir auch sicher, dass er kicherte, als Trump sagte, dass alle Frauen marschierten, um sein erstes Amtsjahr zu feiern.

Und es ist noch merkwürdiger, wenn wir das FBI als Quelle der Objektivität betrachten und es vom Büro des Präsidenten angegriffen finden. Es war die Agentur, die einst Menschen tötete.

Vergiss Hillary, das FBI, und kehre zum Sexmissbrauch zurück? Wir scheinen über alle Beschwerden über das Turnen-Team der Frauen und darüber, wie die Athleten behandelt wurden, überrascht zu sein. Nun, es passiert immer noch und ist schon lange passiert, und nicht nur in der Gymnastik. Denken Sie daran, dass diese Athleten irgendwo zwischen 6 und 17 Jahre alt sind und alles, was sie angestrebt haben, ist die Olympiade oder ein Star in welchem ​​Sport sie wählen. Wenn sie nicht mit den Machthabern kooperieren, mit denen, die Autorität haben, wird ihnen gesagt, dass viele andere bereit sind, ihren Platz einzunehmen, ihnen wird ein großer Gefallen getan, sie sollten dankbar sein und sich nicht beschweren wenig Unbehagen. Ich würde gerne sehen, dass es aufhört, aber ich denke nicht, dass es so sein wird.

Aber das ist nur ein Teil von dem, was hier passiert. Ein Student tötet zwei andere Studenten und verletzt vierzehn andere in Kentucky.

Dieses Paar hat ein Dutzend Dutzend Kinder und bindet sie an Bettpfosten und hat das offensichtlich seit Jahrzehnten getan, der älteste ist in den 20er Jahren, sieht aber wie 14 aus. Ein 17-Jähriger schafft es zu fliehen und 911 anzurufen und das wird gerade verarbeitet . Ja, die Dinge laufen reibungslos.

The Absurd Times Had Enough Yet?

THE ABSURD TIMES

Illustration has nothing to do with the content below. Just the sort of things we miss.

Well, ok, this is where we are living. This is now a country where a guy goes around grabbing women by their pussies, brags about it, and gets elected President. We have guys masturbating into potted palm trees in front of women they hardly know. No, I don’t get it.

We have the medical doctor for the Olympic Gymnasts team stripping girls (6 years old and up) naked and rubbing his penis against them while digging into their vaginas with his fingers. I’ve experienced a bit of something like that when I was an adolescent and competing in sports, but it was not even close to this. In face, I’m still not even sure it was the same thing. This is so blatant that it cannot be misinterpreted. More below, but here is Fox News’ version:

https://shareblue.com/fox-news-host-says-156-child-gymnasts-should-have-stopped-their-abuser/#.WmohwILghQt.twitter.

Oh, and then Trump apparently paid Stormy whatever $13K to keep quiet about their affair or sex scene while Melania was pregnant. Hardly hear a word about that.

Bill Clinton almost got impeached over a "hummer" in the White House and the pursuer seems to have been Monica (but who really knows? Guess it means what "is" "is"?) Nixon? Oh, never mind, this is just getting to weird for me.

While all this crap is going on, however, the country is being eaten away like termites in a wooden house. All this crap is distracting, obviously.

However, I did ask some woman who said we males had to do our part, so I asked for a list. She said, that’s not her responsibility, but did pass on an article that suggested we object to locker-room talk. Now, I assume she meant, or the article meant, not in an actual organized sports locker room. That would be rather awkward. Suppose someone said something sexist.

"I object to that sort of objectification of women."

"Hey, you gay or something?"

"No, sorry, but if you wait long enough, perhaps the right guy will come along for you."

No, it would be far too bloody. Not really cricket, don’t you know? I wonder about how many think Hillary lost because she was a woman? Well, I’m sure Putin did not have that as a consideration so much as he did her interference in the Ukrainian government, suckering Russia into the UN deal on Libya, and assorted other things. In fact, he may have transferred this to the entire country of the U.S. and was rather gleeful to see it punished with Donald Trump. I’m also sure that he snickered when Trump said that all the women were marching to celebrate his first year in office.

And things are even more strange when we think of the FBI as a source of objectivity and find it attacked by the President’s Office. It was the agency that killed people once.

Forget Hillary, the FBI, and get back to the sex abuse? We seem to be surprised at all the complaints now about the women’s Gymnastics Team and how the athletes were treated. Well, it still happens and has happened for a long time, and not just in gymnastics. Remember that these athletes are anywhere from 6 to 17 years old and all they have aspired to is the Olympics or to be a star in whatever sport they choose. If they don’t co-operate with the people in power, those with authority, they are told that there are many others ready to take their place, they are being done a great favor, they should be grateful, and not complain about a little discomfort. I’d like to see it stop, but I don’t think it will.

But this is only a bit of what happens here. A student kills two other students and wounds fourteen others in Kentucky.

This couple has a baker’s dozen of children and ties them to bedposts and apparently has been doing so for decades as the oldest is in the 20s, but looks like 14. A 17 year old manages to escape and call 911 and now that is being processed. Yes, things are running along smoothly.
