See “ONE more thing….”, written by my friend Z and published on October 30, 2017, at the blog GeeeZ.

For your convenience, the complete blog post is copied and pasted below the fold. Worth your time!
These are really worth pondering:

Just one more thing on ObamaCare Repeal.

Since only 8 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot?

Just one more thing on Donald Trump.

If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

Just one more thing on equal pay.

If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

Just one more thing on Sanctuary Cities.

If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?

Just one more thing on ISIS.

Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama’s term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs.

Just one more thing on the London ‘Lone Wolf’ terror attack.

After the London ‘Lone Wolf’ terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other ‘Lone Wolves’ who had conspired with the original ‘Lone Wolf’ in planning the ‘Lone Wolf’ attack. Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the ‘Lone Wolf; attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus ‘Lone Wolf’ attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam.
It is nothing less than tragic what these manifestations of hypocrisy and malfeasance are doing to our republic.

We have become the Divided States of America:

    1. I'M SURE MANY WILL CONSIDER the FOLLOWING OPUS –– a satirical parody of Lous Armsgtrong's "I'm a DIng Ding Daddy from Dumas" –– to be in QUESTIONABLE TASTE, SILVER, –– and THEY'D BE RIGHT!!!

      };^}>

      –– but I feel very strongly that it's just what the ever-increasingly obnoxious CANARDO richly deserves. I had a whale of good time composing it, and can't resist the impulse to share it here. My hope, of course, is that it generates more laughter than derision.

      It helps greatly, of course, if you are familiar with the original:


      He's a ding dong Ducky from Dumbass
      You oughtta see him do his stuff
      Why, he's a caustic fella
      From bath house Holla'
      Ooh, you oughtta see him strut

      Got a guy called Rudy
      Who's a heavyweight brute
      Who calls him Judy

      He's a ding dong Ducky from Dumbass
      And you oughtta see him do his stuff
      Yes, a ding dong Ducky from Dumbass
      And you oughtta see him do his stuff

      He's a ping pong papa from Penis Prairie
      Ooh y'oughtta see him strut

      He's a ding dong Ducky

      You oughtta see him do do his stuff
      Just a rinky dinky ass from Dumbass
      Who you'll see doin' his stuff

      He's a hair pie papa

    5. My answer to your question, AOW, is that EVERY DAY qualifies as a BIG SCREAM at the SKY in American Politics today –– from BOTH sides of the political equation.

      I do my best to find humor in the unrelieved grimness and increasing acrimony.

      My attempts at satire are my way of defending myself against the onslaught of absolute despair. My undying hope is that others may derive a similar benefit from the efforts I make in that direction.

      RIDICULE can be a powerful tool in the everlasting fight against encroaching tyranny of all kinds.

      Remember Charlie Chaplin's brilliant takedown of Adolf Hitler in The Great Dictator (1940)?

      The full movie is posted on ouTube. Well worth a look.

      The PAST has MUCH to teach us today, if only we'd bother to examne it with care and CURIOSITY!

    6. The big scream in Virginia was coopted by Republicans bemoaning their absolute waxing.
      A transvestite woman defeat the homophobe in chief, a 13 term incumbent.

      There was much gnashing of teeth and rending of garments.

      It was a bad election day for the Trumpistas. The only thing you can take solace in is that the Dems are still running against President Happy Hands and haven't quite formed a united policy statement.
      Now that the Clintons have been purged (and you dear hearts are trying so hard to keep her around) it's coming.

      I'm surprised you would appreciate a democratic socialist like Chaplin, FreeThinke.

    7. You should round out your understanding of Chaplin's position with Modern Times and Monsieur Verdoux .

    8. I know Chaplin was both Jewish and a Communist –– the two were practically synonymous in Chaplin's heyday. He was also a tiny British cockney who like Noel Coward and Claude Rains was able to learn how to talk proper English so well his speech could easily pass for a titled English gentlman to the manor born.

      Like all Communists Chaplin must have hated the United States, even though he made his fortune and achieved worldwide eminence because of the opportunities OUR country generously accorded him.

      I also know Chaplin was a unique figure, a comic genius who captured the public's attention at a time when the great American public was still fairly naive and neither knew nor cared much about the threat of Communism.

      None of that has anything whatsoever to do with Chaplin's cheeky, highly successful, well- deserved lampoon of Hitler.

      His enormous talent and great capacity to inspire affection in the masses who loved him is what we should remember him for, and care most about.

      In my view true artisic genius ALWAYS both trumps and transcends other considerations no matter how grubby, unsavory or abrasive they may be.

      We'll gladly leave all the bitter recrimnations and snide innuendoes to you, since that is the only realm in which you've ever appeared to excel.

    9. I think you'll find that Chaplin didn't hate the U.S. so much as the U.S. (government, FBI) hated him.

    11. An espousal of Marxism AUTOMATICALLY disqualifies ANYONE from being considered a good American.

      The love of Collectivism and Centrally Planned Economies is diametrically opposed to everything the United States was specifically designed to embody and to represent.

      Therefore, a love of Marxism is morally equivalent to a hatred for the United States of America.

      The exact same thing holds true for an Islamic Presence on OUR shores for the exact same reason.

      "Freedom of Religion" does not properly apply to Islam, because Islam is NOT a RELIGION, it is an INVASION.

      Anyine who doesn't undersand that, doesn't BELONG here. PERIOD!

    13. I need no help, in understanding what has befallen us –– and WHY, Canardo.

      I was aiive, well and fully cognizant during that period. I lived in suburb of Chicago back then, and went to school with the children of well-known conservative publisher Henry Regnery –– a great friend and confidante of Joe McCarthy. I knew the family quite well, and so I came to undersatnd at an early age the powerfully evil influences undermining our country, and precisely what active opponents of the Communist Menace were up against.

      The stranglehold Cultural Marxism had on his nation even then –– it was 1953-55 –– was profound, and not to be taken lightly.

      Infortunately the Left won that battle by smearing, lampooning, and vilifying its opponents with all the sophisticated expertise and ingenuity Hollywood Moguls, and High-Powered Intellectuals could muster, and we've been on the skids ever since.

  3. Thoroughly indoctrinated Cultural Marxists are the bane of healthy participation on our cinsttionalky ma dated RESPRENTATIVE democracy.

    These Cultural Marxists (formely referred to erroneously as "LBERALS") constantly assert and claim to know many many things that are simply NOT TRUE, but no matter how thoughtful and reasonable your statements may be in attemptng to rebut them, or what kind of verifiable facts and figures you put in front of themr, they will reflexively DENY everything you offer, UNLESS it happens to support the Cultural Marxist narrative with which they've been indoctrinated.

    These mush-brained, motor-mouthed leftist operatives are so hopelessly brainwashed, they've been transformed into a gaggle of classic Useful Idiots –– Mindless Automatons in service to a tyrannical Leftist agenda that PURPORTS to be both enlightened, and humane.

    I applaudanyine who sands up to them, –– as long as the attempt at rebuttal doesn't degenerate into mere namecalling and abusive rhetoric ––, but you see ihere in. blogistan every day how nearly impossible genuine communiction has become.

    These commited ideologues just ain't LISTENING, ALL they ever seem to do is YAWP, YAP and YELP in a determined effort to obscure and derail all attempts at intelligent dignified discussion.

    Civilization has NO CHANCE of surviving with people of this pathetic ilk in charge of the EDUCATION, COMMUNICATION and ENTERTAINMENT Industries, all of which have been insidiously indoctrinating young minds with warped, immoral, intemporate, salacious, dangerously provocative, and deadly destructive Mind Poison for nearly a hundred years.

    1. Thank you, AOW! WIKI's article is self-serving leftist propaganda, of course. Kimball's piece is the real deal. It'sno winder i ball has been runoff vilified and called all sorts of foul names by the Cultural Marxist Esablishment which has been in firm control of Education, Entertainment, Publishung, News and Information with much oo heavy an infuence in the Legal Community as well

      People of Canardo's depressing ilk –– and the useful idots who support Cultural Marxism inadvertentky out of a misplaced sense of "fairness" and ":justice"don't just spring up fully clothed out of the ground. Invariably hey are the prodicts of DECADES of subtle, ruthless, insidious, utterly malicous INDOCTRINATION by the vile intellectual insurgents who fled Europe and infltrated our colleges and universities long ago.

      These people, whether they fully realuze it or not, have been enemies of Liberty, enemies of Christ, enemies of ut Funding Principles, and proponents of Libertinism, Degeneracy, Profligacy, Selfishness, Dissension with out End, and profound DISRESPECT for Tradition, duly elected and properly appointed representaives of Authority, and love of country.

      WHERE do you think despicable creatures like EMMA GOLDMAN, ROSA LUXEMBOURG, HERBERT MARCUSE, HOWARD ZINN, ERICH FROMM, EDDIE BERNAYS, MADELYN MURRAY O'HAIR, SUSAN SONTAG, BETTY FRIEDAN, BENJAMIN SPOCK, GLORIA STEINEM, RUTH BADER GINSBURG, STEPHEN BREYER, ELENA KAGAN, JOE CONASON, and countless other virulent troublemakers who've had a destructive impact in our morals, manners, and mores got their inspiration –– and COURAGE to do what they did?


      Kimballs' article, which you were good enough to link for our edification, gives an excellent overview and summary of the whole thing. Further reading in the works of the authors and instigators she catalogues could only STRENGTHEN her conclusions.

  5. Dedicated to Commie Canardo, Self-Styled Cheeser-Offer of the Right:

    _ Kipling’s Little Man _

    _______ ~ or ~ ______

    _ Bolshevism Revisited _

    A Leftist caught in doubt
    Lifts up his head to shout:

    Your treatment is unfair,
    You bully! How you dare
    To question my veracity
    With cruel, hard-eyed tenacity
    I do not know. My views
    Which boldly you accuse
    Of being falsely ranked
    In truth are sacrosanct.

    My thoughts are Holy Writ.
    Your thoughts are quite unfit;
    Based on selfish fears
    They inspire tears
    And dare to say the blame
    Lies squarely in the frame
    Of those whose failing lives
    Look to him who thrives
    And say: Your gold is mine,
    You greedy, bloated swine.
    You have more than you need.
    It's up to you to feed
    Me, the ill and weak,
    Else Heaven that you seek
    Will ever be denied.

    And I will see your hide
    Shredded, tanned and dried.
    And hung outside the gates
    Of each neighborhood that hates
    The needy and the poor,
    Who soon will storm your door
    And drag you from your bed
    And then lop off your head.
    While the masses you denied
    Will ever take great pride
    Your ignominious demise
    Was effected in the guise
    Of condign righteous wrath
    Giving Bourgeois lives a bath.

    With stolen food and goods
    We'll raze your neighborhoods
    And laugh to see you hurt
    Dying in the dirt.

    WE DO NOT CARE TO RISE:

    We live for your demise.
    We thrive on righteous hate.
    It is by now too late
    To make a plan to stop us
    End the Founder's opus.
    Our Marx destroyed your God.
    He's in - not on - the sod
    Feeding nematodes
    In their dark abodes.

    With mockery and shrill
    Sarcastic gibes we kill.
    We drool with sheer delight
    At the thought of endless night.
    Where everything that's witty,
    Charming, gracious, pretty
    Slumps to the nitty gritty,
    As we revel in the dung
    Corrupting all your young.

    For 'we are the little folk, we
    Too little to love or to hate.
    Leave us alone, and soon you will see
    How quickly we'll drag down the state.'

  6. WHAT DO YOU ThiNK OF THIS REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT?

    Woman Says Roy Moore Initiated Sexual Encounter When She Was 14, He Was 32

    IF this happened at all, it was THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO.

    Considering the TIMING of this supposed "revelation," is there any way you could see it PASSING the SMELL TEST?

    Judge Moore hs been extremely priminent in Alabama politics most of his life. IF this occurred THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO, why do you think it is JUST coming out NOW?

    This charming piece of information –– IF that's what it truly is –– came from the Opposition Research Department of the WASHINGTON POST –– the most most notorious, most virulent, anti-Conservative HIT SQUAD in the country.

    It almost doesn't matter if it's true or not. We live in a world
    heavily dominated by Cultural Marxists where the merest hint of an allegation of this sort is enough to derail and destroy a targeted candidate's chances of winning an election.

    How does this strike you?

    1. FT,
      This is way off topic.

      Nevertheless, I will respond.

      The timing is suspicious. Furthermore, the timing is suspicious.

      See Cheryl Atkinson's The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.

      From one write-up...

      New York Times Bestseller

      Ever wonder how politics turned into a take-no-prisoners blood sport? The New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled pulls back the curtain on the shady world of opposition research and reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.

      Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person. The tactic they use is the Smear. Every day, Americans are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist misogynist, or saw someone on the news mocking the Bernie Sanders campaign. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven "hit pieces" are designed to obscure the truth. Success hinges on the Smear artist’s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.

  7. Duck,
    You quacked regarding Tuesday's elections here in Virginia: much gnashing of teeth and rending of garments.

    Yes -- about the future of Virginia. We will see higher taxes and more burgeoning of the state's Nanny State.

    Virginia has a dark future. I may have to leave the state of my generations -- as far back as the 1700s on my father's side.

    1. Right now I don't believe Virginia is either a high tax or high welfare benefit state.
      If there is an intent that radically change (I really doubt it) you might look at why repubs got so badly waxed.

      I'm not close to the Virginia elections.
      When a 13 term jerk who calls himself the "chief homophobe" gets beaten by a transgender woman you get the idea the right in Virginia still wants to fight the culture wars which the right is consistently losing.

      This election was about Trump's rhetoric and had little to do with the social welfare state.
