The Unspoken Name

Back when I was a bairn a’growing, miscegenation was a nasty thing never talked about. Anywhere. Except when some innocent instance of cross “racial” romance occurred and the swarthier person was beaten or discorporated and the “white” person was shamed and shunned.

If that language seemed a bit religionist, that was the intention. Because the only place miscegenation was mentioned was from the pulpit. Basically, it was the worse sin – so claimed – that could occur.

The only problem with this is that it is fundamentally contradictory. What didn’t hold together was the idea that there were two (three?) types of Christianism: one for “whites”, and the others for swarthies. 

But if they were the same religion, using the same highly non-credible book, then how could they be different and distinct based on “race?”

Especially since the Messiah was swarthy. Except in “white” christianism pictures. Then he was a good Aryan boy.

Of course, nowadays, every other commercial on the television depicts miscegenation. And the christianists are screaming about being harassed and bullied. After inciting how many lynchings and the like?

It now [Link] looks as if miscegenation is as fraudulent a concept as race. Total odoriferous rubbish! Seems homo sapiens did the “nasty” with both Neandertals and Denisovians. More than once, historically. In fact, amusingly, the Denisovians are only known for improving Sapiens’ gene pool. 

The spirit is, however, alive and well. A common practice is to refer to homo sapiens as “Human” and the other homos as not-human. Which is stercus tauri. They are all genus homo, which makes them human. And they are our relatives. Which may indicate just how cancerous the whole family shtick is. 

Personally, from what I have learned about Neandertals, they are better than many of my relatives. Especially the ones who deliberately prevaricate and try to “borrow” money to maintain their drug dominated life styles. To say nothing of their absent mental faculties. 

The Evilgelicals, those folks who prefer a pedophile over a member of another political partei, will likely continue in this mean, damaging way, forever unable to understand why their brand of nastiness is not embraced by everyone else. Even unto denying that they have any non-sapiens DNA.

Isn’t stupidity wonderful? So quintessentially Amerikan. 


Blind Actors

Ran across an article [Link] entitled about the Oscar Awards epitomizing diversity.

Stercus Tauri!

I didn’t watch the BOG EXTRO Ego Fest for a simple reason: it lacked diversity.

Where were the INTROs?

Where were the Geeks and Nerds?

Not there!

So where was the diversity? Just the bits that still meet their comfort zone.

Acognitive Alibam

Yesterday’s Arab Tribune had an article [Link] about how the suggestion of the Legislative Embarrassment (Shame?) of Marshall County, having proposed to arm public schule teachers, has been studiously ignored by the rest of Alibam’s Repulsian Partei. 

As he should be. 

Two thoughts here. First, the Alibam schule system consistently comes in first in the competition for the nation’s worst schule system, occasionally being bested by Mississippi. Given the antipathy, or perhaps, ineffectiveness, of Alibam public education, do we really want to make it worse by further alienating students and teachers. If we have learned anything from watching the events of the last week, it is that today’s students have some psychological and emotional aversion to firearms and the people who carry them.

Which is probably most of the Repulsians in the state. Even in the legislature. Not that I can blame them. If I had to spend any time in the state legislature, I would want protection, although probably something more effective than a firearm.

But I ain’t gonna go down the path of ineffective weaponry. I am gonna go down the path of noting that shooting incidents on college campuses, since that sniper thing at U Texas back when I was a student, are consistently fewer and less damaging than those on high schule campuses.

This indicates that the problem has something to do with how the latter are administered and the problem may be successfully ameliorated by studying how college campuses are administered – and imitating that – than arming teachers.

As I recall, Chicken Man (aka Neil deGrasse Tyson) said something along the line of “Good students are successful in spite of Bad Teachers.” Let’s not let the politicians turn all teachers into Bad Teachers.

Because frankly, Alibam ain’t got that many good students.


The Irrelevance of American Democracy

Yes, American Democracy has become irrelevant.

Democracy used to have two components: freedom of election and freedom to be successful. Both of these have been compromised.

Freedom to cast a ballot still exists. The ballot itself has become irrelevant. Because only members of national parties may run for office, the choice is between politicians who staunchly uphold “fairness” for everyone except themselves and politicians who only represent their donors. And the representation is linearly related to the amount of the donation. And fairness means serfdom.

Neither party wants individual Americans to be successful. One party opposes any citizen having any more money or possessions than any other. The other party wants money to be concentrated only in the hands of rich donors and politicians.



Delivery Ratings

As with most people, I buy a lot of stuff on-line. It’s a necessity in Greater Metropolitan Arab where almost everything you need is either unavailable or hideously overpriced.

So I thought I would share my personal ratings on delivery services:

  • MalWart – F– – doesn’t delivery, just makes me come to store to pick up overpriced crap.
  • FedEx – F – dumps stuff in driveway, no signal – misdelivers 63% of instances
  • UPS (self-deliver) – C – dumps stuff on porch, seldom signals, misdelivers 38% 
  • UPS (USPS delivery) – B – see below
  • USPS – A – drives up, blows horn, dumps stuff on porch, rings bell, misdelivers <5%

I also offer a strong overdose of phenolthalein to all those repulsian evilgelicals who downtalk the Yankee government. If you discorporate on the porcelain throne you can be interred in it.


District Dung

If the politicians in the District are going to call each other treachers, then we seem confronted with either treating them like contemporary “three stooges” or asking the military to form firing parties?


Video Scum

I am not a fan of television game programs. They not only have no attraction, they have a repulsion. That probably arises from being introduced to them in the 1950’s when the winners were often given the answers to increase audience size. Resultingly, game programs are presumed criminal from the get-go.

However, FD SCP does watch some game shows so I caught a glimpse of one of them last night with totally inappropriate questions. [Link]

I was so disturbed and angered by this that I was moved to blog a bit.

First, this is an opposite dishonesty of the 1950’s variety but with greater magnitude. In this case, the program obviously determined what the contestants didn’t know anything about and formulated their questions to exploit that ignorance.

Why? To bolster their audience (and cash flow) by belittling and harassing the contestants. This may not have been sexual assault but it was assault of some form. The MC in particular was revealed to be a sadistic psychotic of the nastiest form.

Second, how could they do this. It’s simple. Half of all adult humans have NO interest in sports, or only limited sports. And the limited forms are seldom the “popular” ones. I have a friend, Magnetic Inductance Force, whose only sports interests are women’s field hockey and chess. 

Third, the half of the population that do worship the sports idol are actually engaged in pornographic excitation. I know most bogs think pornography is about sex, but it’s really about hormones and such and it doesn’t matter what subject matter causes the secretion, just that they are watching some activity that does cause such.

So the corporate oligarchs who use television to increase their wealth basically staged a pornography failure last night to titillate the half of the population that gets secretion high on sports. 

No wonder we are fast devolving into a third world country.
