  1. Hmmm...wonder how many people are going to be listening to Be on say , lady puke-puke, Karn yey West, thirty years from now.

    Zilch.

  2. "This video is not available in your country"

    Well, dagnabit! It's ok, though, I know the song and you're right, Fay. Crotch-grabber West, Gag Gag and Beyonce can't hold a candle to Dire Straits. But then again, I'm an old fuddy duddy, what do I know?

    By the way, if Beyonce is so into the B. Panthers, BLM, etc., why does she wear a blonde, straight-haired wig, hmmmm?

    About the time BLM was just getting some national attention, I read a comment somewhere that struck me about the race problems we're having. To paraphrase, they said that until black Americans get the monkey of slavery off their backs, nothing will ever change. And what will change it? Generations of heart-felt mea culpas? Reparations? A bloody revolution? So whites tend to overcompensate. Look at how people kowtow to that idiot West. There's no other reason to do so except that he's black and they don't want to be called racist - which ironically is what KW said was the reason behind the bad reviews for his latest gawd-awful album.

  3. Sorry to go off topic. It's just been something I've been thinking about lately.

      Justin Trudeau...my Prime Minister.

      What a effing joke.

    3. I hope you noticed that I didn't use "an" in front of a word beginning with a vowel. I wanted to use the word that began with a F, but didn't want to offend.

      Why? I have no fucking clue.

    1. The Girl Scouts in front of the pot shop, that is.

    2. I say you go, Girls Scouts!

      Hustle hustle hustle! Find the easy marks and part them from their money!

  6. I can't keep up with all the PC nonsense either Fay. My very last nerve is shot to hell.

    Great music though, even though I can't watch this video. Poor ol' Con-Yay, begging for money on Twatter. And B-On-Say, who thinks she's black (this week). Tryin' to be authentic doncha know.

    A pox on all their houses.

    And the Girl Scouts? Bah. They wouldn't let me be part of their clicky little troop when I was a kid because my folks couldn't afford the pricey uniform. So I was a Campfire Girl with all my broke friends. We had an absolute blast. And no effin' cookies to sell! Bonus! :)

    1. That's interesting about the Campfire Girls, lady red. My mom was a Rainbow Girl... which I remember her describing as associated with the Order of the Eastern Star, which her father belonged to.

      So, Masonic New World Order flavored girl scouts. Awesome.

      And my other Grandpa was a Mason and once the Master of his Lodge.

      So apparently, I should be a full blown Lizardoid with keys to the secret base under the Denver Airport, and, if not invited to Bilderberg, should at least be on the email list and get the newsletter.

      NNNNnnnnnope. I feel really, really left out.

      And don't even get me started about all the bounced checks from the Mossad.

    2. I was a Rainbow Girl too in my teenage years. OMG, we were SO incorrigible! We would sneak booze into the Masonic Lodge when we had sleepovers...by stuffing the bottle down into our panty hose. (We wore long dresses).

      Step*clunk*step*clunk...it was hilarious! The Eastern Star "chaperones" had their hands full, for sure. Hey, it was a VERY small town, with not much to do.

      I quit Masonry when they would not let my best friend Sandra join. She was an honor student, from a wonderful intact family, and never got into trouble (like the rest of our group). She was black-balled.

      The episode was one of my first experiences with overt racism.

    3. Geez lewy, with all that Masonic blood in your veins, you should know where the Templar cache is buried! :))

      Delete
    4. Blackballed? That's awful.

      Sheesh, la cosanostra was less segregated... they let that Mick/Kraut Tom Hagen be consigliere at least...

    5. Speaking of Templars, I was saddened to see that Umberto Eco passed to that great philosophy library in the sky. I really enjoyed reading "The Name of the Rose" and "Foucault's Pendulum".

      Delete
    6. Sandra would have been a great consigliere, hahaha!!!

      And yeah, it was awful. She was absolutely mortified, and the rest of us were sick and spittin' mad. They're lucky we didn't burn their damn lodge down.

      Delete
    7. I need to read Foucault's Pendulum.

      Delete
    8. Yes. It's VERY good. I downloaded "The Prague Cemetery" this morning, and I'm hoping to start it later tonight.

      I generally will not pay more than a few bucks for a Kindle book, but I make an exception for certain authors. Eco is one.

  7. Boris Johnson votes Leave.

    Is there anyone in the US who could write a political speech as graceful and eloquent - and, importantly in this case, as generous to those who disagree?

    1. That was an excellent read lewy. Thanks for posting it.

      Do you think Britain will vote to withdraw from the EU? Or has Brussels accumulated too much power (and $$$) to allow that to happen?

      If Britain gives the finger to the EU, I'll be dancing in the street.

    2. I've seen odds between 30 and 50 percent; it will be discussed I'm sure on Bloomberg tonight; looking forward to the Europhile establishment clucking, tutting, and eye rolling.

      I was taken as much by the eloquence as by the position itself. Trump has one modality of effective political rhetoric. There are others.

    3. Bluster here, eloquence across the pond, with nationalism as a central theme.
