Paul Krugman, Instructor on Masterclass

Filed under: Economics, Humor, Politics — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:52 PM (15:52)

Scrolling through my “News Feed” on Cuckerbergbook, I recently came across this little gem —

<sarc>
Yes, YOU TOO can add to your economics edumication for the low, one-time price of 180!
</sarc>

But seriously, folks, why not simply cut to the chase on this?

<sarc>If we’re going to live the Krugman way, why not go all-out?

Let’s have our friends in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy (and their foreign counterparts around the world) light off all of their special toys? You know, the ones that give us results like this —

That way, we can all cash in and get rich!</sarc>

Gator vs. Pickup Truck

Filed under: Dark Side, entertainment, Fun, Humor, Viewing — mikewb1971 @ 4:19 AM (04:19)

Gator vs. Pickup Truck

or

Another Critter That Just Shouldn’t Be Messed With

This video clip NEVER gets old —

Those who have already installed youtube-dl need only copy and paste the following into their command-line interface for a copy of their very own —

youtube-dl https://youtu.be/ynhumAumc8Q

I first saw this clip on Facebook (no audio on the FB version, apparently), and later tracked it down on YouTube. The YouTube clip is dated 21 May 2015 — over three years ago.

Either way, hats off to this particular gator, who decided that he (?) wasn’t going to take any more nonsense from the guy in the pickup truck.

I just love the way that the gator just lays there in front of the truck, holding the severed bumper cover in its teeth, as if saying to the driver, “You want some more of me, bozo? Bring it and see what happens.”

All the guy had to do was leave the gator alone, and he probably wouldn’t have had the front end of his truck getting tore up. Hope it was worth it.

Requiring the Callow Performance

Filed under: Dark Side, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — mikewb1971 @ 11:58 PM (23:58)

I would have posted this for publication last week, but Sunday was, well, April Fools Day, and this is serious subject matter to be considered here.

Politicians need to learn their place, and stick to it.

Too often, they see themselves as “shepherds” of the general population, and that same population as “sheep” to be herded, fattened up, slaughtered and sheared as the “shepherds” see fit.

And so we have modern political campaigns, as various factions of “shepherds” compete for the favor and attention of the “flock.”

Thus, my proposal is as follows —

Anyone newly elected or appointed to public office should be required to first complete a performance akin to that of the fictional British Prime Minister Michael Callow in the Black Mirror episode “The National Anthem”.

Specifically — they should be required to have sexual intercourse with a livestock animal on live television before taking office.

Political Classholes of the Muslim and Jewish persuasions should be required to do the deed with pigs, just as Hindu applicants should be required to get their groove on with a bull or cow.

Don’t like it, Classholes?

Fine, then — walk away and decline to be seated as a public official.

Otherwise, if you want a “career path” of screwing over the Great Unwashed, it seems only fair and proper that you should get a taste of what it’s like before you’re enthroned in public office.

ALWAYS remember Lord Acton’s postulate from 1887. NO ONE, regardless of partisan affiliation, professed beliefs, office held, whatever, is immune to this —

I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way against holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it. That is the point at which the negation of Catholicism and the negation of Liberalism meet and keep high festival, and the end learns to justify the means.

John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton, Letter to Mandell Creighton (5 April 1887)

Parts in BOLD type are as found in the Wikiquote article

And who knows? Maybe the Political Classwipes might actually enjoy this particular prerequisite to taking office?
