I was hunting around for a topic this morning. I started on something about Jen Psaki. I started making fun of all the things about her that seemed mockable. But just thinking about her annoyed me. It was like some kind of miasma that infects anyone who comes in proximity with her evil persona. So, I put that aside for a day when I felt stronger.
I thought about writing something on Merrick Garland and his double standard for protestors with differing political objectives. But I got the same feeling. I guess some days photog just doesn’t want to rake the muck. But I couldn’t think of any topic that didn’t involve Leftists being Leftists. After all, armies of Antifa psychopaths are laying siege to the homes of SCOTUS justices and Homeland Security is spawning a Ministry of Truth in their spare time.
So, I got tired of thinking about all those creeps and went outside and did some yard work. I cleaned another one of Camera Girl’s gardens of poison ivy and I pulled out a few small Russian Olive trees (still at the large shrub stage) and did a little more fence repair and enjoyed the sunny day. There was a little more wind than I cared for but that’s become standard conditions around here lately.
And after I finished all that, I had lunch and my mood was much better. I read the end of the second part of the Bounty Trilogy, “Men Against the Sea.” It wasn’t as good as “Mutiny on the Bounty” but it was interesting. I was especially interested in Bligh’s policy of avoiding any of the islands in the South Seas because of the certainty that most of the islanders were cannibals. I’ve been stressing lately that we’ll know when we’ve hit bottom when cannibalism becomes routine in some of our larger cities. At that point I assume most people will choose to avoid Broadway openings and the New Year’s Eve Time Square party in order to lessen the chance of being someone’s lunch. But I could be wrong about that. Some people really like the theater.
So, I got to thinking, Talking about the Left is so painful because it’s thinking about people who are murdering our country. And unless the talk is constructive and helps us get rid of them, then it’s just masochism. What is worth talking about is anything constructive. Trying to figure out a way to make things better. Or sharing information on someone who is improving things like DeSantis or Musk or Trump.
And the other thing for me is to concentrate on the cultural things. Good books and movies and photos that I like or other things that come my way. That’s worthwhile for me. Today I had my Monday zoom meeting with some of the guys from the old firm. All the news was of people leaving or retiring or going to contract employment. It sounded like a death spiral to me. But none of us care anymore. These companies are rotten to the core. It’s just a way to make money for a while longer. The future will have to be something different. The next President who doesn’t want to preside over the death of this nation will have to grab these mega-corporation CEOs by the throat and tell them either they bring middle-class jobs to this country or they will be taxed out of existence. It’s as simple as that.
So that was Monday.
