Back on the 14th of May I wrote a post called “The Five Stages of Grief – Part 1.” Now I see that some guy named Charles Lipson has a post up at some rag called “Newsweek” entitled “The Biden Administration’s Five Stages of Grief.”
In my post I said, “People say that the five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I think I have detected these stages in news coverage of the Biden Administration. The Left is grieving for the loss of Joe FDR Biden’s New Deal Moment, the Great Reset, the Build Back Better Rip-Off. If you think back to last year I remember when prices started to rise and the headlines were full of denial. Do you remember how they claimed that the Fourth of July cookout was something like $1.47 cheaper than the year before? And then there was the meme about inflation being temporary.”
Now here’s something from Lipson’s post, “Take inflation. The former administration spokesperson, Jen Psaki, initially denied rising prices were a problem. When that became laughable, the administration reframed the problem as a temporary one.”
What the hell! When I want to talk about an idea that someone else has written on, I always give attribution and cite the work and put a link back to the original article. But this Lipson guy did none of these things. What the hell!
I challenge you Charles Lipson, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of Chicago (if that is your real name!) to do the right thing and give attribution to Orion’s Cold Fire and apologize for your scurrilous behavior. Have you no sense of decency sir? Have you no shame, at last? There you are at your fancy university in your la de dah city of Chicago taking the food out of Camera Girl’s mouth. I challenge you to a debate. Who is the greater pundit thee or me?
Well, I feel better now. It’s good to get this thing off my chest. Okay, let me go see what I can “borrow” from someone else now.
