Messages told by poets can be disarming. News told by Mainstream media can be dangerous.

 Just like anything else these days, what you know is relative to who told you what, when and how... 


I'm so old, I can remember when guys on TV like David Brinkley and Walter Cronkite would tell you about something that happened, when and where it happened, and that's all. No editorializing. None of their opinions. No bullshit.

Can you believe this Sunday is Easter already? I think the number one lingering side-effect of this COVID shit is time compression. Where have the last 15 months of our lives gone?

This all started when Volkswagen of America “accidentally” published a draft version of a press release announcing the change on Monday. The company had declined to comment on the report, and spokesperson Mark Gillies repeatedly declined to say whether the name change was a marketing stunt.
 
The automaker, which pleaded guilty to deceiving regulators about the true pollution levels of hundreds of thousands of diesel vehicles, then published a press release on Tuesday morning saying the change was a “public declaration of the company’s future-forward investment in e-mobility.” The company said the “Voltswagen” branding would be on all of its EVs going forward. Volkswagen of America is now expected to reveal today that the name change was a stunt

Carved out of solid stone, this site is truly breathtaking. Those Taliban motherfuckers wanted to destroy it. If it was in America, It would be closed down by some liberal whiney-assed dooshbag.
 
The ancient city of Petra in Jordan became one of the 7 New Wonders of the World when it was chosen in 2007 by a vote of 100 million people. The city's carved rose-red sandstone rock facades, tombs, and temples became known around the world with its appearance in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade in 1989.

Another one of the down-and-dirty funky little bars not too far from my house. I dig it - my wife hates it. Too low rent for her snobby ass.

Speaking of swinging for the fences...


This fuckin' guy is gonna spend this country in to oblivion. President Biden will outline his massive $3 to 4 trillion infrastructure plan Wednesday, which will create four tax increases worth around $1.8 trillion. The 'Commander-in-chief’s' “Build Back Better” proposal, a centerpiece of his post-COVID campaign message, will be split into two packages for Congress to pass.

Tell me again Joe - how are taxes on industry gonna pay for your 'Build Back Better Bullshit'? Netflix and Amazon paid no federal taxes. Other companies on this list include Chevron, Delta Airlines, Eli Lilly, General Motors, Gannett, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Halliburton, IBM, Jetblue Airways, Principal Financial, Salesforce.com, US Steel, and Whirlpool

Old school and tight. Nice...

For the record, Joe, Corporations don't pay taxes after the fact like we do. They raise their prices TO US CONSUMERS to cover the anticipated taxes, and then get high-powered accountant firms to help them not pay the taxes they raised the prices to pay. Get it ya,  fuckin' moron?

  2. Cronkite "did" give uneditorialized news until Vietnam. Then he went on the air, lied and said the US military was beaten. And after his lie, we did lose the Vietnam war, but only at home.
