Movie Review – The Gentlemen

We're obviously early in, but I already have my favorite film of 2020 thus far. I LOVE a character driven story, and Guy Ritchie is a filmmaker that really shines when he does these kinds of films.'Lock,...

Let’s take a closer look at how color saturation and other features in Photoshop might have been used to spawn the latest Presidential meme. If any of you are interested in an orange face you can pick up...

Who Would be the Extreme Left Version of a Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient or Cabinet Member?

It appears we now live in a time where Americans are so divided there are large numbers of people who would argue 2 + 2 equals strawberries.

With Rush Limpball recently being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom we are moving even closer to a place where titles and experience mean nothing. I’m not going to list everything Rush has done over the years to cement his legacy of racism, misogyny, and hate because there’s such a long list my ADD would kick in while I’m typing.

One thing that stands out is Rush’s airing of the song ‘Barack the Magical Negro’.  The amazing thing about this song is how the same crowd who thought it was funny are now telling anyone who doesn’t support the Donald that they need to show respect because ‘He’s your President!’.

So, in addition to people like Betsy Devos and Ben Carson making a joke of what was once considered the experience a person needs in order to be appointed as a member of the President’s Cabinet, we now know that the Presidential Medal of Freedom no longer provides the prestige it did until recently.

What this made me consider is who on the left could be given the Medal of Freedom that would be as ridiculous as awarding the medal to Limpball?

I was talking to Joe yesterday about this and we both thought Rev. Al Sharpton would make the MAGA crowd explode.

Sharpton has said “white folks was in the caves while we (blacks) was building empires”, “We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was”, and “We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” Comments like these make white fragility boil over across the country while Obama the Magic Negro is dismissed or even denied as fake news by the rubes.

Later in the day I asked a couple red hats who they think is the most unreasonably liberal character they know who would be the equivalent opposite of Rush and they both said Michael Moore. Another friend said Jane Fonda, but I think she’s been out of the loop so long only boomers have strong opinions about her, and who really cares what they think, right?

After having a few discussions about this it got me thinking about what the opposite of today’s cabinet would look like if a super lefty liberal entered the White House. We’ve already heard from Elizabeth Warren that if she wins she’ll let a trans high school student pick the next Secretary of Education. Where her picks would go from there are anyone’s guess, but here’s my list of Cabinet members who I think would make evangelical men take a break from yelling at Mexicans and instead yell at their TV.

Attorney General – Hillary Clinton or Elliot Spitzer
Secretary of Agriculture – John Mellencamp
Secretary of Commerce – Marc Cuban
Secretary of Defense – Colin Powell
Secretary of Education – Bill Nye
Secretary of Energy – Jay Islee
Secretary of HHS – Bernie Sanders
Secretary of HUDDavid Bromstad
Secretary of the Interior – Jay Inslee
Secretary of State – Barack Obama
Secretary of Transportation – Elon Musk
Secretary of the Treasury – Dylan Ratigan
Secretary of Veterans Affairs – Tammy Duckworth
Director of National Intelligence – Malcom Nance
Director of the CIA – Michael McPhall
Director of the OMB – Karen from accounting
U.S. Trade Representative – John Huntsman

So, there’s my list.

Who you got?

So I eventually landed on this podcast today. It's the story of the disappearance and clear murder of Kristin Smart in 1996. Now, it's rather infuriating because it's abundantly clear who killed her, but...

Shamokin Must Be a MAGICAL Place to Live

This was JUST brought to my attention last night, but you may have seen it before. Imagine a town so bereft of anything culturally relevant, that a Dunkin' DoNITS being temporarily closed could cause this...
