Is 2018 Over? Grab Bag Thoughts

Has it been nearly three weeks since my last post? Longest drought since I've begun blogging.

No, I haven't stopped. In fact, I've collected - once again - numerous article and stories to share but finding time to read and offer a remedial comment has been tight.

Just a couple of things that I'd like to impart as I prepare another gargantuan 'Derp' links post.

-I notice the media likes to call Trump a 'reality star' and since Oprah's (full of shit) speech at some shitty award ceremony for people living in a bubble lacking oxygen, they've taken to calling her a 'business woman'.

Er no. It's the opposite. Trump is the business man and Oprah is the reality star. That she became famous and made money off it doesn't make her a business woman. One preceded the other. Trump first made his bones in business and then ended up a celebrity.

These things intertwined but keep to the roots of reality please.

Regarding her speech.


Not surprised the usual suspects are swooning over it.

They don't think.

Nor is it shocking at every turn media outlets like NBC don't even bother to pretend to be objective anymore:

Nothing but respect for OUR future president.

Oof. So much for 'objective' journalism.

From where I sit, it's interesting the most powerful woman in media in the last, what, 20-30 years never ever said anything about this stuff. I say this on the premise she had to have known what was going on. Everyone in the loop knows if they didn't, then they're either very bad journalists or just full of shit. Pick your poison. It's a little like sports journalists who had a hunch or inking baseball players were juicing up but rather than following the leads and story, they chose to turn the other cheek. And when it was safe to attack, they did.

It's what they call in the hood being a coward.

And Oprah was being a coward in my view. She would have scored major brownie points had she done it when it was 'uncool' to do it. That's what makes people like Assange and Snowden real heroes. They laid it out and let their principles guided them.

Look. The content of what she was saying was correct. Nor is this to disparage her backstory which is pretty impressive. A real rags to riches against the odds story. There's much to like about Oprah and she bothers me none but if she wants to get political it's I just hope she's ready for all the digging that's gonna go on in her closet.  And if she does run and wins if she goes the bull shit Obama narrative route, she will be called out on it.

In any event, he background stands in contrast to Trump's easy and comfortable upbringing couldn't be any more stark.

 We all know this. The point is where were you to speak out?

Oh, I know. Building your brand. I'm guessing lashing out at Weinstein and his ilk was not the 'right time'.

It's so easy to get up before a bunch of people who share in your same bubble and make a speech like that. You lay nothing down except to preach to the useful idiots choir.

I know Seal has his own issues but I'm kinda with him about her being a hypocrite. 

"....a new dawn is on the horizon'? Blech.

To me, Oprah in one speech showed me where her values actually lie.

And it ain't much.

Not to mention not terribly original.

Oprah 2020 wooooo!

As she kissed him she had to have known, no?


- Al Gore is some piece of work. A more disingenuous piece of lying jerk you can't get. So. To him, these extreme winter conditions are because of climate change? No shit, asshole. Climate changes all the time. But keep switching gears on the fly. I honestly don't know how anyone can listen to these doomsday Cassandra's and their manipulations anymore.

And for the record, I seem to recall the same conditions we're experiencing - up here in Quebec - anyway - growing up in the 1980s. Same exact thing. Wild weather changes from week to week.

This was before the climate change hysteria pimped out by shysters like Gore and the other numbskulls Nye and Suzuki.
