Queasy Clichés

We steal something already borrowed, but which should be said clearly:
Douglas McEwan, whom I quoted here recently, posted this to Facebook and I'm sure he won't mind if I stick it up here, too …
We all love Gene Wilder, and we all loved Gilda Radner, but can we dial back on the "Gene and Gilda are reunited in Heaven" stuff, please? First off, no, they're not. They're dead. Secondly, it's an awfully queasy cliché.

And thirdly and most-importantly, it's disrespectful to his widow Karen, who nursed him through his final illness, and to whom he was married far longer than he was to Gilda. She's alive and grieving, and should be shown respect, not shunted aside because we all want to feel that Gilda was the Love of His Life.
And could you cliché-spouting scared-of-death types also cool it w/ the "R.I.P." stuff, as applied to anyone?
The dead are dead, damnit, they are not taking a well-deserved break!

Penny? I Can't Even ...

Penny Ballard, another friend (& neighbor; in 1992 she told me there was a vacancy in her bldg. & they let me move in) w/ whom I used to party down good in the '80s & '90s is dead. And extra-sadly, just like Penny's & my friend Tracey (also an Action Swinger) who fucking died last yr., she was several yrs. younger than I. Hit Google out of morbid curiosity & found this, which I haven't yet had the nerve to watch, & especially not to listen.Penny had shuffled back to Buffalo, land of her birth, several yrs. ago so I hadn't seen her in some time. Just fucking awful where or whenever.

Nation Of Chicken-Shits
& Scaredy-Cats

Stupid jerks heard loud noises (At an airport? Not possible!) had fits of fear, then were told by "security" to run (There's a great fucking plan!! Screw security theatrics.) & the terminal was evacuated. Why don't all you fools just stay at home quivering in fear, under your beds, sporting a pair of Depends® Underwear on your lardy American asses?

John Lennon proved totally wrong again: We are here for nothing more than to live in pain & fear. There's certainly no evidence to the contrary.

We're Like Rats In A Cage!!

Snapshot of the planet's dominant species (That's you, losers, believe it or shove it!) doing what it does best.
Stolen here, which gave no credit. Scientific assholes.
Very well aware your species is committing self-genocide by poisoning its own nest & breeding like fucking mayflies; just not nearly fast enough for this reporter.

Any way to get you caged rats to step on the gas & run your world of shit & pain into a cosmic bridge abutment, or ...
must I go out there & do it all myself?

From Mugabe Monday
To Trump Tuesday

Birds of a feather:

‘My friend Donald Trump’: Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe tells visiting US politicians they will wish they had been ‘friendlier’ to him when Donald Trump wins the White House

  • Robert Mugabe told US politicians of thoughts on Donald Trump at meeting
  • Adam Schiff and Chris Coons were in the country researching wildlife issues
  • The pair were shocked to be granted time with the dictator in 'bizarre' chat
Previous Mugabe.

D-Prick Announces

The peoples of the world unite to back a Korean worker (office worker, apparently)
as he rousts the Yankee imperialists & their puppets from the Korean Peninsula.
propaganda Posters ETC.
Today in iNternetnational Tough Guys:
SEOUL, Aug. 22 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Monday threatened to mount a "preemptive nuclear strike" on South Korea and the United States as the allies kicked off their annual military exercise aimed at countering Pyongyang's potential aggression.

The command and control exercise Ulchi Freedom Guardian, began its two-week run on Monday, involving tens of thousands of South Korean and U.S. forces.

This year's drill came amid unusually heightened inter-Korean tensions following the defection of a London-based North Korean senior diplomat to South Korea.

South Korea and the U.S. "should bear in mind that if they show the slightest sign of aggression on (DPRK's) inviolable land, seas and air ..., it would turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike," an English-language statement by the country's General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), carried by the state-run Korean Central News agency, said.

"They should properly know that from this moment the first-strike combined units of the KPA keep themselves fully ready to mount a preemptive retaliatory strike at all enemy attack groups involved in Ulchi Freedom Guardian," the KCNA report said.

DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name of North Korea.

The statement said the exercise is "a clear manifestation of a vicious plot" to deprive the DPRK's army of their cradle by force of arms.

"The situation on the Korean Peninsula is so tense that a nuclear war may break out any moment," it also claimed.

It is the resolute determination and will of North Korea "to terminate the ever more reckless moves of the U.S. imperialists and the South Korean puppet forces for a nuclear war not temporarily but indefinitely," the latest statement said.

The statement said the KPA's such stances were made "upon authorization," indicating that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was behind the issuance of the latest threat.

South Korea's government, meanwhile, warned over the weekend that it is likely that the North may carry out some sort of provocation during or after the on-going military exercise that comes days after Seoul confirmed the defection of the North Korean embassy official last week.

Musical Studies

Crematory at the Majdanek Concentration & Extermination Camp, near Lublin.
Never forget: "Donald Trump adviser on the Holocaust: ‘The ovens were too small to kill 6 million Jews’"
They were killed in the gas chambers, not in the ovens, you Nazi fuck.
Remember, the personal is political:

Dep't. Of Amplification

The mess quoted below reminded us of a thinly-sourced (from an idjit on some left-wing loon blather board) item we published almost nine yrs. ago, which suggested that the Joseph E. Schmitz recently in the news in relation to anti-Semitic statements was married to Colomba (Mrs. Jeb!) Bush's sister Lucila.
Donald Trump adviser on the Holocaust:
'The ovens were too small to kill six million Jews'
McClatchy Washington Bureau:
Trump adviser accused of making anti-Semitic remarks  —  WASHINGTON  —  Allegations of anti-Semitism have surfaced against one of Donald Trump's foreign policy advisers, raising further questions about the guidance the Republican presidential nominee is receiving.
So we were a bit disappointed there was no reference to Mr. Schmitz's spouse, & decided to see what the deal was. (Especially as the post in which we found the assertion was a bit hinky, & the link there is dead.)

If you have time, and feel like going down an interesting rabbithole, there's this thread from the Rigorous Intuition board:

Mary Kay Letournau is Jeb Bush's sister-in-law, through her brother John Schmitz's marriage to Lucila Garnica Gallo, Colomba Bush's sister. Mary Kay's father was an ultra-rightwing one-term U.S. Congressman from Orange County, CA, and left politics for a short period of time after it was discovered he had fathered 2 other children by his mistress, a German woman. One of the children from that affair had been found with a hair wrapped so tightly around his thingy, it almost severed the organ, and police suspected abuse. However, the child was later returned to her custody. While the children were in their early teens, Schmitz died from cancer, and their mother shortly thereafter from complications from diabetes. They were taken in by, of all people, Jeanne Dixon, but became wards of the state after her death. Gloria Allred has a cameo role in this as well, as she was a friend of the Schmitz family.

What's even more interesting is that Mary Kay's brothers, John and Joseph, have very tight connections with the Bush family. John Schmitz served as counsel to G.H.W. Bush while he was VP, and later president, and helped cover G.H.W.'s involvement in Iran-Contra. Joseph served as Pentagon inspector general until earlier this year, when he resigned after being accused by Grassley of covering up possible illegal deals in the rebuilding of Iraq's telecommunications infrastructure. Joseph now works for the Prince Group, which is the parent company of Blackwater International. The thread provides much more detail on all of this though.
Long story short, it would appear that Lucila, sister of Colomba, is married to a John W. Schmitz who was Jeb!'s Andover roomie, & who was then confused w/ John P. Schmitz, the actual brother of Joseph E. Schmitz/son of John G. Schmitz, patriarch of the Schmitz Sex Crimes Family. Then it would appear this reporter (me) confused John P. & Joseph E. (Or omitted "Schmitz's brother is married to" when typing the original item. Too many Johns & Joes? Damn sure too many Schmitzes, period!) And it is surprising that the John W. Schmitz who is Jeb!'s brother-in-law & prep school roomie didn't work in any Bush Admins.

So excuse the living fuck out of us (That, Mr. Trump, is sarcasm!) if you were confused or misled by our item of nine+ yrs. ago.
