Marvin The Martian Says Hello

Be careful about this sudden move to public attack over “anti-Semitic”.  SFB and his cult are also supporters of the Saudi attack on humanity.  These soulless beings will use any twist to appear to be leading.  Antifa as the terrorists when it is the white supremacists/naziis/kkk who are killing people in America.  Hate against peace.  Always going to hate.  Never to peace.

Born in Detroit when Truman was president, survived the rest of them. Early on I learned that FDR was the greatest president, which has withstood all attempts to change that image. Democratic Party, flaming liberal, Progressive, equality for all and a believer in we are all human and deserve respect and understanding. College educated, a couple of degrees, a lot of world experience and tons of fun. US Air Force (pre-MRE days). Oil and gas fields, computer rooms and stuff beyond anything I can talk about. It has been quite a life so far. The future is making my retirement boat my home. Dogs, cats and other critters fill my life with happiness. Work pays the bills.

  1. by George, not a shrink-ing violet according to newsweek yesterday:

    Conway engaged in a Twitter thread between several doctors and neurologists on Thursday discussing Trump’s psychiatric condition. “The word ‘insane’ is not currently in vogue and has nonspecific meaning both psychiatrically and legally. It is usually used for people with psychosis. Trump is delusional, but not psychotic,” Eliot Ivanhoe, a classical acupuncturist and neurologist, tweeted.” He is, however, nuts, crazy, mad, bonkers, and certainly not sane. I call him ‘INSANE.'”
    In response, Conway argued that Trump “is legally and diagnostically sane.” “But he suffers impairment from at least two diagnosable personality disorders, and needs a full workup for possible onset of dementia. He’s obviously unfit. He’d be drummed out of any other job,” the lawyer explained. “Colloquially, though, we can say he’s nuts.”
    Later, Conway responded to another tweet discussing whether Trump is “crazy” or “evil.” “Malignant narcissists, virtually by definition, are both mentally disordered and evil,” Conway tweeted.
    The lawyer followed up his tweet by sharing links to two Amazon books titled The Dangerous Cause of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President and Trump on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President. These are “essential reading,” he wrote.

  2. last week in the new Yorker:

    COPENHAGEN (The Borowitz Report)—After rebuffing Donald J. Trump’s hypothetical proposal to purchase Greenland, the government of Denmark has announced that it would be interested in buying the United States instead.
    “As we have stated, Greenland is not for sale,” a spokesperson for the Danish government said on Friday. “We have noted, however, that during the Trump regime pretty much everything in the United States, including its government, has most definitely been for sale.”
    “Denmark would be interested in purchasing the United States in its entirety, with the exception of its government,” the spokesperson added.
    A key provision of the purchase offer, the spokesperson said, would be the relocation of Donald Trump to another country “to be determined,” with Russia and North Korea cited as possible destinations.
    If Denmark’s bid for the United States is accepted, the Scandinavian nation has ambitious plans for its new acquisition. “We believe that, by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation,” the spokesperson said.

  3. “F.Y.I., if you’re here to plunder the Earth’s natural resources, you’d better hurry.”

    [also from the new Yorker]

  4. Speaking of natural resources, early reports not yet confirmed that David Koch has passed away.  If so he won’t see the destruction his industries have caused. 

     

  5. Wholly Boast is a great one – and I wish I could take credit for Tweet Potato, but alas, it was one by a comment author at WaPo. 

    Just read what I consider a hilarious article at WaPo about the best one star reviews of the 7 wonders of the world. Well worth the read. The one star review of the Great Wall strts like this:

    ““Frankly, borng. … I took off important time from business to visit the Great Wall …”

    borng – priceless.

  6. in the meantime, OUR HOUSE IS BURNING!”

    “Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rain forest — the lungs which produces 20% of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire,” Macron tweeted.
    Bolsonaro fired back with his own tweet: “I regret that Macron seeks to make personal political gains in an internal matter for Brazil and other Amazonian countries. The sensationalist tone he used does nothing to solve the problem.”

     

  7. I am rarely one to spit on a grave, so I won’t say what I would do in front of one of the kock bro’s final spot.  The guy had one goal in life and it was to take over the U.S.  There is not one product in the U.S. that does not have some component that came from the kock bro’s companies, which receives our money.  Walk through Lowes or Home Depot and you see kock bro’s products.  Look at a home or building and you see kock bro’s products.  Their names are not on the products, but you can be assured those products came from companies that are under the kock bro’s world.

  8.  from NY Times this morning at https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/us/david-koch-dead.html

    They insisted that they adhered to a traditional belief in the liberty of the individual, and in free trade, free markets and freedom from what they called government “intrusions,” including taxes, military drafts, compulsory education, business regulations, welfare programs and laws that criminalized homosexuality, prostitution and drug use.
    Since the 1970s, the Kochs have spent at least $100 million — some estimates put it at much more — to transform a fringe movement into a formidable political force aimed at moving America to the far right by influencing the outcome of elections, undoing limits on campaign contributions and promoting conservative candidacies, think tanks and policies.
    But they said they had not given money to any Tea Party candidates. “I’ve never been to a Tea Party event,” David Koch told New York magazine in 2010. “No one representing the Tea Party has ever even approached me.”
    Still, he and his brother acknowledged roles in founding and contributing money to Americans for Prosperity, the right-wing advocacy group that was widely reported to have provided logistical backing for the Tea Party and other organizations in election campaigns and the promotion of conservative causes.

  9. The koch brothers opposed government oppression of minority religious, racial, ethnic, or political groups. They thought such oppression was the job of business owners.
     
    The koch brothers also thought government only existed to enlarge the koch brothers. It was on this point that they agreed with trump, except of course trump figures government exist to enlarge trump. trump particularly appreciates the provision of places where he can file lawsuits. 

  10. Pogo…  I didn’t do anything different from what I usually do.  I dragged the cartoon to my screen and then I dragged it to “Choose File” here.  I am on a Mac…  don’t know if that made a difference.

  11. kochism stands for liberty for white male Christians. Women, non-whites, and non-Christians, not too much.

  12. wonder if the twit will offer condolences since this is what he tweeted in past as reported in that faux news site above:

    “The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more,” Trump tweeted last year.
    “I made them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!” he added.

  13. NPR:

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday.

     

    The radiation therapy, conducted on an outpatient basis, began Aug. 5, shortly after a localized cancerous tumor was discovered on Ginsburg’s pancreas. The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement issued by the court.

     

    Doctors at Sloan Kettering said further tests showed no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. The treatment comes just months after Ginsburg was operated on for lung cancer last December. The 86-year-old justice has been treated for cancer in various forms over the past 20 years.
    “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City,” a statement from the Supreme Court read. “The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor.

     

    “As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed. The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule. The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.”
    Shortly before her new round of treatment, Ginsburg sat for an interview with NPR, and her resilience was on full display.

     

    “There was a senator, I think it was after my pancreatic cancer, who announced with great glee that I was going to be dead within six months,” Ginsburg said. “That senator, whose name I have forgotten, is now himself dead, and I,” she added with a smile, “am very much alive.”

     

    During Ginsburg’s three weeks of treatment in New York, she kept up a busy schedule in New York, often going out in the evening to the movies, the opera and the theater.

  14. Don’t look….   BUT….  it looks like trump’s tweets have sent the stock market into a tailspin….  again.
     
    He has apparently tweeted that he’s not sure who is the biggest enemy of the US…  Fed Chair Powell or China’s President Xi.  He’s also calling for US manufacturers to move out of China.  Yup…  he obviously thinks he’s king with that last call….     f*cking putz!

  15. Don’t die or TrailMix will shit on you, that day.

    All things considered, after reading his wiki, Koch seemed like a decent guy.  He probably has made more contributions to cancer research than any individual, ever.

  16. Nixon wanted a war on cancer too  that is not enough to make up for all the degrading of the enironment and the money that has gone into denying people of color their right to a clean environment and a deccent wage

  17. I can’t hate everybody, it’s too exhausting.  Plus, the Dinosaur exhibit at the Natural History Museum is fantastic.
     
     “denying people of color their right to a clean environment“

    …don’t feel obligated,  but what?

    Actually, never-mind, David Koch bad because Liberal orthodoxy. Got it.

  18. sometimes they actually do the thing they are accused of
    and it has nothing to do with choosing sides

  19. whatever
    If you want to be a fan of David Koch that makes you like  Steven Ross and Trump — he is willing to pick and choose and apparently so are you

  20. Ok, you called me “Trump” and posted an opinion piece, you win.

    Maybe i’m conflicted because he was a major supporter of a lot of  cultural things i appreciate, like WGBH-Boston, which is a national treasure.  That affiliate has produced and distributed an enormity of amazing programming for decades, “Frontline” being at least one example.

  21. I didn’t say you were like Trump  I said you were like Steve Ross 
    You pick and choose the things you like and ignore the truly awful things he did and paid for.

  22. There was an interesting socio-philosophical discussion to be had, here, but you’d rather post lazy, inflammatory nonsense, so…

    How bout a tune? 
    (…from someone else, please, my music is terrible.)

  23. “ denying people of color their right to a clean environment and a deccent wage”
     
    -that was your response to me saying something nice about a dead-guy.  Nothing you posted subsequently supported that inflammatory statement.  The worst thing your huffpo link accuses him of is paying someone’s utilities bill! 

  24. Bink

    David Koch was the prime example of Noblesse Oblige.  There were things that he loved and that I loved.  He gave mountains of money to those causes.  He was pro-choice, pro medicine, pro art etc.  The problem is that the source of the funds that allowed him to do all that are things that will destroy what is good for all of our children and grandchildren.  Even worse, his brother who drove him out of the business doesn’t actually give a damn about either the charities or the source of the money.

    Then you can get me started on Libertarians and Socialists and the sides of the coin where neither flip of same works. 

     

  25. Alright, at least we can all bicker and squabble, here, so we don’t have to with friends, family, and acquaintances.  It would be nice if i personally had better strategies and arguments to with which to engage them, and although highly unlikely, sway a heart and change a mind, but polarizing rhetoric doesn’t help me to that end, and it’s only going to get worse, by the day, until next November.

    My biggest concern, politically, right now is the mistreatment of migrant families by our federal government, and i will continue to yell about it, in measured tones, as long as it’s an issue, but beyond that, i’ll try to keep it classy.

    So, in that spirit, i have some liquor to drink, and some to pour out.  Here’s to you all.
