I had a good vacation, the first since 2002. Two weeks of no computer, news feeds, and work intruding. I liked it so much I’m doing it again next month around Thanksgiving. You’re welcome! The title doesn’t refer to riding a Harley. Around here, a Harley is an RV. No, the title refers to pigs living in America.
Unless you get your news from the Disney media complex (Disney-CNN-HLN-ABC-NYT), NBC and its associated networks, you’ve read about Harvey Weinstein and his decades-long piggish behavior. That Weinstein was a pig isn’t what pissed me off. It’s that SO MANY HOLLYWOOD STARS and DEMOCRAT POLITICOS KNEW who Weinstein was doing, what he was doing, and kept their mouths shut because The Silence of the Hams meant millions of dollars, and awards like Oscars, BAFTA and Golden Globes – guarantees to future work – so long as the actress didn’t go conservative. Never go full conservative in Hollywood. Perhaps a movies about this entitled “The Hypocrisy of the Lambs”?
I don’t go to movies, and haven’t since 2015 when the Old Ranger and I went to see the premier of the seventh Star Wars movie. Hollywood is so corrupt that folks don’t even blink when the casting couch is mentioned.
Also acting like a pig is an Army Major General. I wonder how many soldiers’ and officers’ were ended by this pig for similar offenses? But he’ll get off with a reduction to Brigadier General and cushy retirement with requisite sinecure with a defense contractor.
Speaking of defense contractors, that biggest of hogs – the F-35 – is back in the news again. The plan now is to leave over 100 aircraft incapable of combat. Who’s getting rich? Who’s getting a job with the contractors after this pig farts?
Over on the civilian side, guess what folks?!
And for little piglets, learning to feed at the trough, we have the University of North Carolina. VMI, if it stays tied to honor, and even to education, will never be able to compete with professionals. But, truth be told, I’d rather have a VMI grad who can read, write, and sort out his bills and which baby-mama is his than these so-called “Professional” athletes and their college piglets.
West Point is certainly a hog farm these days. Who knew about the commie and why did they let him continue? And, how in the world does one get removed for ‘failure to adapt’ by 1st Batt and then go to West Point? How many others are infected?
Lastly, because they are my favoritest of favorite jerks, the VA. A thought: most VA workers are not veterans. Why not require them to receive their medical care from the VA, too?
Seems when I go on vacation the assholery goes to stratospheric levels. Still, I highly recommend turning off the computer, the cellphone, and making a trip to the library for a good read under the open sky.
