Descent into Madness?

  • Maybe because of the Carson monologues, circa mid-'70s through the early '90s, that I've been watching since the beginning of the year, I feel like reading my observations of the body politic like nightly cue cards.
  • Will this be the last Presidential campaign of the United States?  I'm not sure there's a competent candidate in the bunch.
  • Unfortunately for us, the Texas primaries are next week, so we'll be bombarded with TV ads over the weekend.  I'm glad I dropped my landline years ago, elsewise I'd be getting all of the political calls.
  • Can Trump get any crazier?  This guy would embarrass P. T. Barnum.
  • There seems to be absolutely no substance in any of the debates, just shout-fests.  No wonder Romney has held back from endorsing any candidate.  
  • Of course, it may be just a reflection of the culture - or lack of same - of the nation.  Perhaps 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is no longer a revered and respected address.  One recent resident used the oval office like a pimped porta-potty at Mardi Gras, and according to a PBS commercial I saw earlier this evening, the current denizen has turned the East Room into the Dexter Lake Club.
  • I actually saw my first Carnac skit in decades this past week.  I don't think it was one of Carson's better ones - he seemed to be rushing through them.

Quick byte

Inasmuch as I didn't have a dog in the hunt for Sunday's football contest, I decided to take the dog I do have for a walk instead, figuring - correctly - that anything and everything notable or not would be reported, ad nauseum, after the fact.  In such belief, I was as prescient as Carnac, and then some.

Comes now news that a 'pro-choice' outfit has its undergarments unorganized because Frito-Lay's Doritos commercial employed [the] "tactic of humanizing fetuses."  Oh, the humanity!

Yeah, that's the point.

Pro-life/pro-choice is not particularly my pet issue; however, it takes a lot of gall (not to mention stupidity) to assert that a fetus inside a woman is anything but human.

Maybe those people have been watching Alien re-runs too much.

Where can I find such a woman?

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
