The yellow BS flag tossed: As she watched rioters break into the U.S. Capitol last January 6, MSNBC host Joy Reid has revealed her greatest worry was that the mob would vandalize the Black History Museum, because the protests were “deeply rooted in anti-blackness.” “I can remember every moment of that day, really, and thinking to myself, ‘My God I hope that these marauding masses of MAGA supporters don’t find the Black History Museum and ransack it.’ Sorry, nobody thinks like that. Nobody thinks in alliteration. Not even her. Of course, Reid also said “There is absolutely zero, none, zero evidence that BLM has ever pushed for anything violent, pushed for anything violent to happen to police,” which tells me she likes to live in this wonderful little fantasy world where reality doesn’t matter.
Correct term: I’m hearing people correct themselves and others by saying those crossing the border, without proper legal papers, are now to be referred to as “undocumented”. Yes, that could be an accurate term. Since there criminal laws against this still on the books and supposedly enforceable, the correct term is :
adjective; contrary to or forbidden by law, especially criminal law.
noun; a foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living.
As long as there are immigration laws on the books, illegal Alien IS the correct term.
No more apple, now just the stick: The premier of the French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec announced Tuesday that adult residents who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 will be charged a financial penalty. Premier Francois Legault said not getting vaccinated leads to consequences for the health care system and not all Quebecers should pay for that. The same argument they used to use demanding full time helmet use. Again, this is about control. And only control.
How’d you like to pay this guys gas bill?
You don’t know you know her: If you have a dollar bill in your wallet, there’s a good chance it bears the name of Rosa “Rosie” Rios. She might be partially responsible for any brand-new quarters in your pocket, too. Rios pushed for legislation that eventually became the Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act. Now she is claiming the new Maya Angelou quarters could inspire ‘a lot of future leaders’. So looking at a quarter in your pocket will “inspire” you? I doubt that very much, especially with the current coin issue. People aren’t carrying coins, so there is a seeming shortage. But, ” There Is No Shortage”, it’s just a circulation issue.
Actually, I wasn’t: In case you were wondering, prolific filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is still in the Zorro business. Rodriguez’s interest in the character of Zorro goes back a good while. In 2020 came news of a potential Zorro TV series he was working on with Sofia Vergara at NBC; it was to follow an underground artist who “fights for social justice as a contemporary version of the mythical Zorro” and runs afoul of criminals in the process. It’s looking like Rodriguez might finally get to make his Zorro show at the CW, since the network is now developing “a gender-swapped reimagining of the classic masked vigilante character.” In other words, Zorro will be female. Not a new idea, it was done in the 50’s, but was still set in the old west. And never consider the 1981 “Zorro;The Gay Blade” as an actual Zorro movie. This is right up there with the new “Equalizer”, which I don’t watch. As far as the “new” “Zorro”, probably no as well.
