Formatting of text, and pictures, by Chamblee 54 ~ The expression [the shit hits the fan] is related to, and may well derive from, an old joke. A man in a crowded bar needed to defecate but couldn’t find a bathroom, so he went upstairs and used a hole in the floor.

It is important to post the monday morning reader before noon. This week has an assortment of links about Ahmaud Arbery. I was wondering why this murder was getting more attention than the dozens of killings that take place every day. Then I edited this post. The third link from the top is an example. This case deserves some of the hysteria being devoted to the Arbery incident. You will not have to look very far to find more. ~ Nothing Is Certain, Except Death and Taxes (Great thanks to Luther Mckinnon whose tweet on this topic led QI to formulate this question and perform this exploration. Mckinnon pointed to the 1789 letter by Benjamin Franklin. Thanks also to Dave Hill who participated in the tweet thread. In addition, thanks to previous researchers such as Fred Shapiro who identified the Christopher Bullock and Edward Ward citations.) ~ @WISTquotes Travel, trouble, music, art, A kiss, a frock, a rhyme — I never said they feed my heart, But still they pass my time. Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) American writer “Faute de Mieux,” Enough Rope (1926) Faute de mieux means “for lack of something better or more desirable.” ~ “Men of faith know that throughout history the crimes committed in liberty’s name have been exceeded only by those committed in God’s name.” Mills E. Godwin, Governor of Virginia (Dec 1966) On KKK cross-burnings. Quoted in various papers of the time. ~ I just got a letter from the US Department of Treasury. From the moment I got it out of the mailbox, to the moment when I was able to open it, I was worried. When I looked inside the envelope, I saw a familiar signature at the bottom. The letter told me that the economic stimulus was on the way. That is interesting, because I got the check a couple of weeks ago. What a waste of money. A useless letter, from a useless president. ~ @TylerMahanCoe This info deserves to be public, so I unlocked last month’s Patreon update for everyone. The true and untold story of how “You Never Even Called My By My Name” was written & recorded, ft. John Prine, Steve Goodman and David Allan Coe. ~ @OverheardOnDuty Adam Slater stabbed his wife and took his one year old. He then got into a wreck when fleeing the scene with his one year old. A bystander tried to save his one year old out of the wrecked car and Adam stabbed him. Adam then threw his one year old off a cliff to die. Evil exists. ~ “JUST DISCOURSE: Do not bandy words with your father, nor treat him as a dotard, nor reproach the old man, who has cherished you, with his age.” Aristophanes (c.450-c.388 BC) Athenian comedic playwright Clouds, ll. 998-999 (423 BC) [tr.

This was during the Iran-Iraq war. We took Saddam Hussein’s side in that war. We also sold weapons to Iran, with the assistance of Israeli arms dealers. The profits from that sale went to finance terrorism in Central America. Taking sides is not always the answer. Nor is simplistic rhetoric. ~ you know toddlers who have a problem managing their temper and we have a problem managing our temper and we start losing our executive function as well ~ A fbf posted a meme, saying that we were being conditioned to think of our freedom as being selfish. Two thoughts came to mind. Since the fbf is probably getting tired of my helpful comments, I am going to post these here. 1 – Advertisers would tell you, in so many words, that your selfishness is freedom. 2 – Have you ever gotten into an argument, where you are fussing with someone about who is going to get their way? You say they are selfish, and they say you are selfish. Both of you are correct. ~ @MeritLaw “The series of events captured in this video confirm what all the evidence indicated prior to its release— Ahmaud Arbery was pursued by three white men that targeted him solely because of his race and murdered him without justification. This is murder.” ~ @thejournalista In this latest episode of #AuntieUnfiltered, I discuss white people using black and brown emojis. This topic was submitted via email by one of our readers. Have a topic you want to see discussed or looking for advice? Email ~ Cops review new security camera video of man who appears to be Ahmaud Arbery walking into a construction site and running off just minutes before he was shot – as armed Black Panthers protest in neighborhood where he was killed ~ @nihilist_arbys This Mother’s Day remember, as much as you may be disappointed in yourself for being such an irrelevant entropic tangle of neuroses and perversions, your mother is vastly more disappointed in you Enjoy Arby’s ~ That is where drug testing started for athletes, and quickly spread to the general public. When Len Bias took cocaine “for the first time” the CIA was using drug runners to ship weapons to terror groups in Central America Those planes did not come back empty ~ this poem was presented at an open mic last night: father said those didn’t really do much, during the really bad flu three years ago, spread panic of antibacterial touch, smells like hand sanitizer and B.O., i’d get the flu and die like my mother, maybe that would make my father care, is this thing a real pandemic bother, or just another political scare? ~ j057 The Surfer Part One was written as a response to “The Surfer” from Pretty Monsters.

Tara Reade is a liar. Im now certain of that beyond a reasonable doubt. Her attention seeking or corrupt performance has demeaned people who../1 ~ Your Mask Is Making You Meaner, Dumber, More Afraid & Less Safe This is an interesting take.

@jimgoad Didn’t this guy physically attack two different Vietnamese men for being Vietnamese? Beware the virtue-signalers. There’s no need to virtue-signal in public unless you’re insecure about your virtuousness. ~ @chamblee54 “if the people at the bottom are thrown into the dull and the opium abuse thats a very bad thing” ~ In 2015, Salon posted a festive piece. “Indiana’s Mike Pence is starting to look like Lester Maddox — without the spine.” I made this comment: “It is highly unlikely that anyone will know who this Pence person is in forty four years.” Political predictions are risky. ~ Ben Franklin sent a letter to Jean-Baptiste Le Roy on November 13, 1789. In this letter he said: “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes!” ~ “you know there’s risks there too you know yeah and the idea of putting a dollar figure on a human life is repulsive to most of us I think intuitively in this context but in fact we do it all the time” ~ This has what politics has come to. It is not supporting a candidate/incumbent. It is seeing how many rude things you can say about the other candidate/incumbent. Increasingly, this name calling includes people who support the candidate/incumbent you do not like. It is a sleazy dirty business, and it makes me ashamed to be an American. ~ “it made me feel like this is a dirty business like I don’t want to be a part … it’s they’re trying to change people’s opinions with deception it’s not like they’re trying to tell you how good their guy is they’re using deception yeah they’re using fuckery it’s sleazy its sleazy it’s a sleazy business” ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

That is not sufficient. ~ Wow mouth-breathing people huh something about racism just it just kills people with racism like there’s a gene and it targets that gene and people are racist they just drop like flies there are a lot of older people dying so it might be working it’s definitely killed a few racists in this last few weeks imagine if that’s like something people focus on here’s one silver lining mauriz held grand Wizards are gone we went into the Facebook pages of all the people who died and 64% were racist that’d be awesome that would be a nice silver lining yeah ~ @The_GrammarGeek My favorite is “rhyme,” which used to be “rime,” until some wise guys thought it should look more like “rhythm,” which was from Latin “rhythmus.” ~ I feel like we’re not being really honest with the people that the data and and we’ve looked at this very carefully really is about just breathing air and that’s a hard thing to stop so keep doing the hand-washing but don’t think that that’s going to stop this disease which you asked about the mask to stop other stuff yes yeah asks there’s two kinds right basically the surgical mask which just fits over and the reason it’s called a surgical mask is because it’s loose-fitting just fits you know kind of ties behind you because weren’t worn by surgeons so that they don’t cough or drip into your wound and it was never made to protect you from bugs coming in so those little spaces on the sides that’s not a problem if I’m breathing into the cloth right in front of my nose but in terms of the air coming in on the side they’re not they’re not effective at all so people ~ “I was always terrified of death panels but I didn’t realize they would come from my fellow Trumpists” ~ @realDonaldTrump “President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise … On Monday, nearly 12.2 million people watched Mr. Trump’s briefing on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, according to Nielsen — ‘Monday Night Football’ numbers. Millions more are watching on ABC, CBS, NBC and online streaming sites, and the audience is expanding. On Monday, Fox News … alone attracted 6.2 million viewers for the president’s briefing — an astounding number for a 6 p.m. cable broadcast, more akin to the viewership for a popular prime-time sitcom … The CBS News poll said 13 percent of Republicans trusted the news media for information about the virus.” ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Scott Fitzgerald, Quarantined in the South of France by Nick Farriella NOTE: This is a work of parody and is not an actual letter written by Fitzgerald. ~ Making the situation all the more potentially explosive was the fact that many Iranians have a special antipathy for China, as it is one of the few powerful countries that has openly supported the Iranian regime. News of Chinese tourists heading into Iran, some of them potentially sick with a contagious disease, predictably inflamed public sentiment.

When I was 10 years old, I walked to a drug store. There was a little newspaper, with a big headline. “Exclusive Photos: Lee Harvey Oswald’s Bullet Hole” Yesterday, I was listening to episode 8 of “Catch and Kill.” Someone was talking about the early days of the National Enquirer. They mentioned that photograph. I almost fell off my stationary bicycle. I looked inside that 1964 newspaper. It showed a body, on a gurney. The head was covered up. I don’t think it was really Mr. Oswald. ~ @UncleHotep This is how terrible some of you people on the left are. You want people to suffer all due to the fact you cant stand Trump. He is literally just Obama with no filter nothing has changed in your lives. ~ The Peanut Butter Dilemma Natash Kiss my butt. You all always try to discredit black men. It’s a shame. You all are thoughtless, heartless and cruel. ~ @chamblee54 @bloggingheads @AryehCW maybe the fuck boys are trying to take fuck boy back as the term yes that they can like proudly you know March on the street and call myself fuck boys ~ This is a delightful article, about one of my internet hobbies … debunking quotes. It is written with a civilized grace that is missing in the nonstop screaming match online. There is one problem. @spectator does not link to their sources. The link is a terrific internet invention. It is like a double click footnote. Someone should tell @spectator about it. ~ @Ahmadinejad1956 “The WHO must immediately identify the lab that produced and spread the virus, as well as the other centers that supported the biological war against humanity.” ~ “and so we tell them wash your hands often in to present this to prevent this disease and I feel like we’re not being really honest with the people that the data and and we’ve looked at this very carefully really is about just breathing air and that’s a hard thing to stop so keep doing the hand-washing but don’t think that that’s going to stop this disease which you asked about the man to stop other stuff yes yeah asks there’s two kinds right basically the surgical mask which just fits over and the reason it’s called a surgical mask is because it’s loose-fitting just fits you know kind of ties behind you because weren’t worn by surgeons so that they don’t cough or drip into your wound and it was never made to protect you from bugs” ~ “I just brought some numbers we can serve ly estimate that this could require 48 million hospitalizations 96 million cases actually occurring over 480 thousand deaths that can occur over the next three to seven months with this situation so this is not one that to take lightly” ~ ‘I just found some white men to kill’: Man accused of killing 4 in Central California cites racism in police recording ~ you get into this kind of moral component where we’ve been talking about you know is it morally defensible if you’re a lesbian to you know not want to sleep with a woman who has a penis @katrosenfield @tweetertation ~ @PostCultRev It is literally cheaper to fly to South Korea from Los Angeles, get tested for coronavirus, then fly back than it is to just get tested for coronavirus in the United States. ~ @PostCultRev Replying to @whiskeybuttman Just google LAX to Seoul, round trip flights now are running less than $900. South Korea made testing free. Costs of testing in the US, if you can get it, is over $1300. To be clear, DO NOT DO THIS it’s just to note the insanity of our current system. ~ I had a phone once. When the battery started to go bad, it started to buzz, and would not stop. My grandmother used to keep her clock in the refrigerator, so she would not hear the ticking. That gave me an idea. I wrapped the phone up in a towel, in case it exploded. I put it in the refrigerator. A day later, it had quit buzzing. ~ When Kyra gets Beth an “enhanced emotional support” dog to help her get over her recent funk, the gift goes over a little too well. ~ @chamblee54 .@GlennLoury it is always fun when .@JohnHMcWhorter says something like this: “dammit I’m gonna say it I don’t care who hears it I have heard the word social justice” ~ At times like this, what we need more than anything are calm, rational, and trustworthy public officials on whom we can rely for guidance. Public officials and the news industry have squandered their believability through innumerable instances of lies, spin, shallow thinking, lack of transparency, and corruption. This has created fertile ground for sinister undercurrents of suspicion. Perhaps this is a drill to get the public used to obeying orders — a pilot test of large-scale social control using a virus for cover. Or maybe this is an actual emergency whose source is a mystery. Perhaps the draconian measures in Italy are, in fact, heroic. ~ @windienine millennial humor is funny for the same reason that Ulysses is difficult to read and I think that’s hilarious. ~ Given current events, it would really help police (and all first responders) if you could resolve your own petty disputes peacefully. If you do have a gun, please do not point it at anybody. If you _must_ point your gun at somebody, please do not pull the trigger. Thank you. ~ Mikhaila Peterson Retweeted Vanessa Spina, SNS @ketogenicgirl Dr David Sinclair has been researching a covid vaccine and has found that people who don’t eat a lot of red meat & eat a lot of carbs are susceptible to the virus. Please prioritize RED meat for heme iron & avoid carbs.
