Why is anyone surprised when a congressperson, an MP, etc takes foreign money?

This is capitalism

Everything is for sale

EveryONE is for sale

There is no way around it

Pass a law to prevent it and they find a loophole

Anytime you have the forces of the markets in play, anything is possible if you have enough money to buy the right people

Morrison's End

I think a good case could be made for Jim Morrison having clinical depression:

"During the recording of the L.A. Woman album, Morrison talked about “taking a holiday”—from what, and for how long, never specified. (When you need to take a holiday from being an adored rock star in Los Angeles, things are definitely not right.) Eve Babitz’s sister Mirandi, who knew Morrison and his long-term partner Pamela Courson socially, thought that Morrison’s excessive boozing and drugging were an attempt to cover up undiagnosed depression. She comments: “It was as if he was very unhappy inside.” Perhaps all the drunken bluster and daredevil stunts and authority-baiting were a numb man’s way of feeling something. This suggests another way of looking at his writing, too. For all its mythic yearning, it leaves very little sense of real emotional engagement. There’s just the suspicion that this ready-made poetic syntax might be a perfect way of not saying what it is you’re really feeling (or, worse: what you’re not feeling)."

Why do so many New Yorkers hate Bill De Blasio?

I don't get it

Someone please explain

Question: if COVID 19 evolves into something no more than a nuisance

Do we need to still lock down?

Hear me out -- a successful virus does not kill its host

Thus, viruses evolve until they find a way to be undetected, and keep the host alive without symptoms

So, if COVID 19 takes this route, could this be no more than an addition to flu shots in future years?

Don't get me wrong -- Omicron is real and we don't know all the short term and long term effects of it

But hospitalizations are down, and the next variant may be a "successful virus" that is, asymptomatic and non-lethal

Stinky Camenbert Cheese and Merlot

Very good pairing

Threw in a charcuterie of figs and Asian pear to round it out

Merry Fucking Christmas

Merry fucking Christmas to all of you beautiful people

Hug your fucking loved ones and mourn the fucking loved ones who aren't fucking here

Hug your furry fucking friends and give them a fucking snack from the table just fucking because (just make sure it's not fucking chocolate)

Peace on the fucking Earth, and good-fucking-will towards everyone!

So Alcohol...beer, wine, bourbon, etc etc...is it killing us or making us stronger?




With some major names departing MSNBC and CNN, why not bring back Olbermann?

Yeah, he could be a jerk, but he was our jerk

We need more fighters like him

And we need a "Worst Person in the World"

Anyone up for a "Gifts of your Region" gift exchange

Like I, being in California could gift Chardonnay in exchange for Texas BBQ or NY Deliwiches?
