    When does the mourning end? I know I missed kick off but I saw more of the half time show than I cared to witness and was wondering when it was cool to laugh about it. I went out tonight and a waitress asked if I'd heard about HW and I said no, lol.

    I think it’s usually a week. The media takes that long to run out of different ways to say the same thing.

    Wait for the H.W.Bush references...

    “Force the normies into taking sides. At the moment they are just like "meh, I am minding my own business" retreating culturally into their private bubbles and "safe-spaces" since they don't understand what is going on. When the actual "us vs them" starts, they will be forced to fight or they'll die.” - Anonymous Poster

    No. Is there anything about the political status quo that makes you particularly want to be their version of "correct"?

    Seems to me being " correct" according to the Bush/Clinton Machine is a one-way ticket to Hell.

    Reality is starting to rear its ugly mug, thanks to truth tellers like Jim Bovard:

    Bovard on George H.W. Bush’s Funeral and Career

    ------------

    http://jimbovard.com/blog/2018/12/06...al-and-career/

    I saw George H.W. Bush give a speech in southern Illinois in early 1980 when he was campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination. His spiel was the usual campaign stump speech, with nothing memorable. However, after the speech, a young student at Southern Illinois University politely asked him about his role in the Trilateral Commission. Bush became unglued, shouting angrily about how people were always hassling him about that connection. Maybe Bush was just having a bad day but I was stunned by his reaction. Reagan thrashed him in the Illinois primary, carrying conservative-leaning areas in southern Illinois by huge margins. Bush’s Establishment style utterly failed to resonate in that part of the state.

    I have been vigorously criticizing George H.W. Bush’s policies & career for decades. Here’s a 1991 C-SPAN interview where I flogged his nitwit trade policies: https://www.c-span.org/video/?23521-1/us-trade-policy

    Why write about George H.W. Bush's record before his burial? Because, as Willie Brown said, “In politics, a lie unanswered becomes truth within 24 hours.” https://t.co/QDdiiiNcgC

    In his eulogy today, Rev. Russell Levenson compared George H.W. Bush to Jesus. I've heard the Holy Ghost is perturbed for being left out.

    All these tributes at yesterday's funeral to George H.W. Bush's “character” – Nobody recalls how he betrayed the Kurds in 1991, encouraging them to revolt & then abandoning them to Saddam's crackdown. https://t.co/hld4IrWCu9

    George W. Bush declared today that #Bush41 was “no cynic.” But his betrayals on his tax pledge & his debacles at home & abroad turned millions of other Americans into cynics. https://t.co/QDdiiiNcgC

    The Main Stream Mafia's only hope in the face of the truth is to blather at the top of their lungs until everyone's sick to death of hearing about it, and won't listen to another word. Could take a while.

    Nah, I'm just wondering in case I roam into the GP. Apparently, I'm an awful person because I speak truthfully about awful people even after they're dead.

    Well, if being awful is the only way to learn enough from history to avoid repeating it, then being awful is the only way to avoid being evil.

    So, good job!

    Some people seem to think you shouldn't speak ill of the dead. To be fair, I would've said it to his face when he was alive if I had the chance. *shrug* Whatever...

    Stalin is dead. Hitler is dead. Do they speak well of those two?

    Hate to prove Godwin right yet again. But the comparison is more apt than the mundanes know--or are willing to admit.
