A Picture Is Worth 0

This pretty much sums up my feelings about the international image of the U. S. since Donald Trump’s U. N speech:

TMI 0

Was it in the “reference” or “fantasy” section?

The Miss Grundys of the world are never satisfied.

Afterthought:

By the by, if you have not read William S. Borroughs’s Naked Lunch, do so. Among other things, you will learn the etymology of the phrase “Steely Dan.”

NIMBY Nonsense 0

You can’t make this stuff up.

. . . it’s not party animals that are disturbing the resident’s (sic) slumber in the picturesque Alpine village of Biot but instead the neighbourhood cows with their noisy bells.

To express their annoyance at the situation, around 20 residents of the village in the Haute-Savoie – home to a total of 600 people – have signed a petition to have the cows moved.

The petition, signed “only by second home owners” in the village, according to mayor Henri-Victor Tournier, including Brits, Belgians, Corsicans and Parisians, complains of the “noise of the animals on the paths opposite the chalets and apartments of the Corbier hill”.

Yes, it’s real.

Protection Money 0

You can’t make this stuff up.

The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump’s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.

Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

This is what happens when you run the government like one of Danald Trump’s businesses–one bankruptcy after another.

Tales of the Trumpling: Snapshots of Trickle-Down Trumpery 0

This is your country on Trump.

After a Tennessee middle schooler got caught for painting a swastika and racial slur on a pastor’s car, he’s now seeking forgiveness for what he and his friends thought was a “funny” prank.

“It was just something stupid that we thought would be funny, but it didn’t turn out to be funny at all,” the boy told Fox 13 Memphis. “It wasn’t supposed to be racist.”

Ugly Americans 0

Drunk as a skunk, stupid as a rock:

An inebriated American tourist was beaten up in the German city of Dresden after he repeatedly raised his arm to give the Nazi salute, police said Sunday.

The 41-year-old American, who was lightly injured in the attack, is now under investigation for violating the law against the use of symbols from banned organisations, Dresden police said in a statement.

(snip)

Public displays of Nazi symbols like the swastika or gestures like the “Heil Hitler” salute have been banned in Germany since the end of World War II.

The polizei are looking for the assailant, who faces assault charges.

It would appear that the International Olympic Committee has given up all pretense of being about anything other than mammon. Bob Molinaro reports:

Another sign of the coming Apocalypse comes from organizers of the 2024 Paris Olympics who are considering the inclusion of eSports – video gaming – as a competitive event.
