Some hard hits there…as usual, the political comics bringing the point home.

Good morning…

Meanwhile, there was more going on yesterday…then a car crash in California:

Just the thought of this tweet makes me want to puke:

This news here also makes me sick:

Just end this with William Blake:

And that’s all for now… stay safe.

If anyone said half the shit tRump has said…they would not have been elected either.

Read through this next one…

I want to vomit:

I’m not crazy about the Lincoln Project, probably because of who is behind it…but this is a real good ad:

What do you think?

Have a good Sunday…


Sunday Reads: Soylent Green in 2022

Good morning.

Did you all realize that Soylent Green is supposed to take place in 2022?

Please click on the link below to see the opening montage.

Soylent Green (1973) — (Movie Clip) Opening, The Year 2022

I never knew that this film was set in 2022. I always seem to come into it after the opening sequence…but watching it yesterday, I saw the movie from the very beginning. This is amazing. Check it out…NYC…no visual of the Twin Towers…folks are wearing masks.

As the movie  starts, they talk about 20 million people out of work, homeless people live in their cars and in the hallways, and riots…yeah, even riots in the streets for food!

Please if you have a chance, watch this movie again with a new perspective, it is as if the film is set in a Trumptopia 2022.

I’m telling you, if tRump is re-elected, strawberry jam is going to cost a fortune, women will become “furniture” and people will stand in line for green crackers. Remember, Soylent Green is people!

This is an open thread.

I wanted to end with this book review…it looks interesting:

The Five by Hallie Rubenhold review – the untold lives of Jack the Ripper’s victims | Books | The Guardian

A landmark study calls time on the misogyny that fed the Jack the Ripper myth. Why has it taken 130 years for a book telling the stories of the women to appear?

Few women have had the moment of their deaths returned to more often, and with as much relish, as Mary Ann “Polly” Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Jane Kelly. In each case their throats were cut, and four of them had their entrails removed. Kelly, the only one of “the canonical five”, as Jack the Ripper’s known victims are called, to die in her bed, was completely mutilated. Forests have been felled in the interests of unmasking the murderer, but until now no one has bothered to discover the identity of his victims. The Five is thus an angry and important work of historical detection, calling time on the misogyny that has fed the Ripper myth.

Read the full review at the link…

It will be published later this month. The Five from Penguin Books.
