Today is Earth Day. I hope people tune-in to the various discussions going on today and the next couple of days to celebrate this occasion, the CRITICAL exigency of our time, the importance of this kairos in the context of our planet's survival, to say nothing of its inhabitants. Use this planetary shut-down in particular …

Where We At: Threats to Fauci

Just a quick one, folks. Wasn't going to post anything today. But this story seems to pretty much tell you where the good old U.S. of A be at. Embarrassing, disturbing and pretty ominous if we have to extend this nightmare. Our leading scientist on the Covid-19 crisis has to beef-up security due to death …

Learn Nothing

More reports emerging about China's bullshit Covid-19 reporting and now this predictable development: China re-opening their wet markets. This is like some far-fetched movie about the future of humanity, in Blade Runner-like sci-fi creativity and depravity. As in, this is as much beyond reality as it is beyond the pale. Trust in Chinese "authorities": lying, …

2020 Wimbledon, etc.

The Stimulus Bill: Fuck You, Bill. https://twitter.com/mudfleas/status/1245092363439083526 But she'll get a check for $1200 in May or June, so she's good. The Trumplicans are an absolute shit show. The Democrats are probably no better, but how far do you get by comparing turds. Trump's belief that this was a hoax will, like his impeachment, follow …

Short Tutorial on Why China

This provides a little context (less than 10 minutes) for the criticism of the Chinese, and validates what might appear imprecise when I refer to that country's "culture of eating and torturing wildlife." https://youtu.be/TPpoJGYlW54 Pretty sad, all the way around. And, yep, fingers end-up pointing toward government (in this case Chinese) and the powerful and …

Quarantine 3/23

It's my mom's fucking birthday today. She passed in 1999. To think she's missing all of this! I love you, mom. Sure, I'm a little obsessed with this virus and I think we should all be so fucking consumed. As we know, hearing from virologists, epidemiologists and the like, this kind of novel coronavirus has …
