From now until Labor Day folks will be trying to enjoy the end of summer before their kids have to go back to school. Of course this year that will be extra painful as parents behind the COVID Curtain will be sending their little ones into masked purgatory.
This is the lowest traffic period for the site and also typically a time when the news cycle is filled up with stories of man-bites-dog type non-events. Luckily for us this year the Taliban may rescue us from boredom by banning the LGBTQ contingent from indulging in buggery. This should trigger General Milly-Vanilly to flip out and nuke Kabul. After that it’s anyone’s guess how the fall season will proceed.
Creepy Uncle Joe is catching a lot of flak from the various sororities around the country for not insisting that the Taliban go trans-gender. Personally I think Joe did the best he could. But it does make you wonder what those negotiations between the State Department and the Taliban sounded like. I’m trying to imagine how equity, diversity and inclusion translates into Pashto. My guess is that after listening to the DC boys for a few weeks they decided to just make believe they agreed to whatever was said and just go back to stonings, amputations and beheadings as soon as the Americans leave.
It’s funny, twenty years ago was 9-11-2001. We moved heaven and earth to force the Taliban out of Afghanistan. But if Al Qaeda invaded New York City today I’d tell them to keep it and run it however they felt. In fact I think it would be a distinct improvement. It’s a cinch that crime rates would fall. If I remember correctly the Taliban outlawed the heroin trade when they were in power. And they’re pretty tough on crime. Amputating a thief’s hand definitely gets his attention. Compare that to the present defelonization of stealing anything less than a thousand dollars in New York and California. No, I’m convinced, New York needs to import a thousand Taliban to supplement their police department. Sure the RPG’s will probably cause some complaints in the gangbanger neighborhoods. Those boys aren’t used to being outgunned. But I think it will be a real morale booster for the NYPD. And talk about diversity, those turbans will be the talk of the town. But I’m afraid Greenwich Village won’t be happy.
So stay tuned. It may be slow for the next week or two but things will pick up soon enough. Enjoy the quiet time and the end of summer.
