This seems to have been a good week for Proper Disrespect. I opene Lifehacker this morning for a bit of trolling (in the piscine meaning,) and found several encouraging bits of news:
First, we have a couple of intriguing titles about the PLOTUS: [Link] “Trump Gets Booed As He Plays Golf in Scotland” and [Link] “Trump Lies So Much That Journalists Now Measure Things Like ‘Dishonesty Density’.” I have confidence these are, or will be labeled, false liberal Snowflake News but they are, none the less, refreshing. As a matter of fact, they give me greater understanding of many things I have read in ancient Greek about the joys of tyrants and why they were so popular.
Second, I see that that Cohan fellow – not the one who can dance, sing, and pretend to be a gangster – has had encouraging dealings with the chief bigot of Alibam: [Link] “Sacha Baron Cohen Probably Punked Roy Moore, so Now I Will Watch His New Show.” I have commented on this evil cancer of Alibam several times before but this one is truly amazing. The fellow actually though someone not Southron Evilgelical, the National Firearm Association, or the KKK would give him an award. OK, maybe the Amerikan Nazi Party? But this does indicate the brilliance of the fellow. Whose primary niceness is that he ain’t POTUS.
Third, and in some ways, most enjoyable, [Link] “Tribal Chairman Sends Ominous 4-Word Letter to Keystone XL Pipeline Developer.” I am not aganst progress but I am against false Capitalist progress that makes our lives worse and damages the ecosystem. Wait, the use of Capitalist there was redundant. So I apologize to the planet wreckers. I am not even going to go into my usual nitnoid about “Native Peoples”. But I will acknowledge that this particular speaker for First Peoples has my admiration for standing up. Shame this guy doesn’t occupy 1600 Pennsylvania. After all, it’s empty courtesy of a relaxing golfing expedition to Russia.
Enough. Time to go break some eggs.
