We Destroy The Family!

You can't handle the truth:

Red love, for all

Family is a terrible way to satisfy our desire for love and care, according to the writer and academic Sophie Lewis. The solution? Abolish it.

Friday Freak Out: False Rulers

Very contemporary theme: Rulers are false & deserve (at a minimum) a beating, so beat them all, including your bosses & the damn police, "Morality" or any other variety.
And an excellent riddim.

I Know The Feeling

Not to mention living among 20,000,000,000,000,000 (Don't believe I've ever typed that before.) or so ants.

Guess Which Party's "Political Elites"

Social media sharing of low-quality news sources by political elites

Abstract

Increased sharing of untrustworthy information on social media platforms is one of the main challenges of our modern information society. Because information disseminated by political elites is known to shape citizen and media discourse, it is particularly important to examine the quality of information shared by politicians. Here we show that from 2016 onward, members of the Republican party in the U.S. Congress have been increasingly sharing links to untrustworthy sources. The proportion of untrustworthy information posted by Republicans versus Democrats is diverging at an accelerating rate, and this divergence has worsened since president Biden was elected. This divergence between parties seems to be unique to the U.S. as it cannot be observed in other western democracies such as Germany and the United Kingdom, where left-right disparities are smaller and have remained largely constant.

Why don't some Euro politicos link to lies? American exceptionalism, natch: White Nationalist American Jesus has no problem w/ his people bearing false witness.

"American Way/Try To Explain
Scab Of A Nation/Driven Insane"

There are eight million stories in the naked city, & every one of them is anxious.
Emily Baumgaertner / New York Times:
Health Panel Recommends Anxiety Screening for All Adults Under 65  —  The guidance comes as Americans are coping with illness, isolation and loss from the pandemic, as well as other stressors like inflation and rising crime.  —  A panel of medical experts on Tuesday recommended …
Those 65 & over can just eat shit & die? (Yes. Why do you ask?)

I do wish the jerks who come up w/ these studies would stop acting as if people are to blame for being anxious.
There are reasons.
Title quotation:
P.S.: "Rising crime"? I haven't even started.

Everything's Made of Shit & You're All Going To Die, Part Why Bother?

And these ancient fucking clowns will talk big but do nothing.You're all rats in an over-crowded cage. If world "leaders" failed to impose mandatory sterilization on their shithole countries the minute they entered office they are part of the problem, not the solution.

Post-Natal Trash

For my natal anniversary yesterday I wasn't expecting gifts, just hoping that I'd get my ass kissed. However, while the tributes were few & far between (i.e., non-existent) the universe, or someone leaving their ap't., placed this larger, cleaner bookcase (on the left below) in my way on my daily constitutional.
Now all the literature fits, including items too large for the previous model.

Thanks, universe; the rest of you can return to the hells whence you came!

Well?

On This Date: A President Died, A Queen Is Buried, And Many More Miseries Afflict The World

Her Late Bleedin' Majesty's flunkies decided to pre-empt my birthday w/ her stupid funeral. Yet another indignity added to the list.
Next yr. this reporter will reach the Biblicaly-alloted threescore & ten yrs. of suffering & endless ennui in this horrid moronic world of shit & pain. He figures it's borrowed time after that; no laws will stop him then. (It's important to set goals for the new yr.)

Another atrocity on this date:

Shakin' All Over!

How to live when the power goes.
