"College educated elites carried out the neoliberal assault on the working poor and now they are being made to pay. Their duplicity embodied in politicians like The Clintons and Barrack Obama succeeded for decades. These elites, many from east coast ivy league schools, spoke the language of value, civility, inclusivity, a condemnation of overt racism … Continue reading May “Deplorables” Haunt Her Forever
As mentioned in a previous worst-post, as a b'day gift I was forced to attend a cooking seminar last weekend. I say 'forced' without the intention of holding a grudge against my better-half's gift choice. It's just that I'm already a damn fine cook so my initial reaction to such a gift must be a bit … Continue reading A Seminar About Beef, God-Knows-Where Nebraska, And My Personal Trail Of Tears
As my beloved #americant waddles in the ease and comfort of blissful ignorance and the gayety of dysfunction, I've spent most of this day continuing my research as an expatriate in finding methodologies of distraction and systems of self medication. For example, tonight I'm due with my better half to visit a place that is gonna … Continue reading What’s Under The Bus You’ve Been Thrown?
Finally, dear worst-reader, I've found something out there on the interwebnets that I can relate to--especially regarding the batsh*ttery of the cult of Edward Snowden. As I've worst-written here, I'm not a big fan of Snowden. In short, I question whether or not this so-called whistle blower is all he's cracked up to be. Also, my … Continue reading Long Past The Point Of No Return Because The Snow(den)ball Is Long Gone, Melted And Absent of Doctor Strangelove
Well, dear worst-reader, did you think it couldn't get any worst? Surprise! You thought just because He won your hearts, your TV screens and your presidency that the batsh*t show of electoral politics was (all) over? You thought it was time to sit back, like you always do, visit the mall and consume things you … Continue reading That Thing About Germaphobe Presidents And Denial Press Conferences
The thing I remember most from Steve Jobs presentation of the iPhone ten years ago wasn't the device itself. No. The thing I remember most were three words that he said: "Internet Communication Device." Nothing else in that iconic corporate presentation remains with me. I don't care how the thing looks, what colours it comes … Continue reading Announcement: iPhone 10th Anniversary Not A Celebration But Instead Reason To Admit Defeat. Or. The iPhone Represents How The Old Economy Won.
The thing that's been bugging me most since the presidential election goes beyond the commitment of #americant to continue along its path of batshit conservative politics. I've been seriously trying to figure out how the DNC and the Clintons totally underestimated political conservatism. Putting all the republican party trickery aside, i.e. gerrymandering congressional districts, the power of talk … Continue reading Fake News. Deplorables. Botched Robbery. Rational Thought. A 4:30am Botched Unsolved Murder.
So I'm sitting at a bar, nursing an Obstler. I can't figure out if my drink tastes like peach or pears. And that really confuses me when I'm on one of them special self-medicating evenings. Btw, for the longest time when I was a child I never really understood the difference between peaches and pears. Of course, … Continue reading Fascism: The New Rainbow Coalition
See those little air bubbles? Well, I've finally managed to get a pic of this rare oyster species. It's called the Rhine River Jumping Oyster. No. Seriously. It's an oyster that jumps. When the oyster is, for whatever reason, out of water those little air bubbles grow and expand and can be used to move it … Continue reading The Bouncing Oysters From Middle Rhine
Like a previous post, the digitalisation of (worst-moi's) life continues. As usual, though, at this time of year, the mystical holiday season threw me for a loop. But what could throw worst-writer for a loop, you ask. How about the physics (the E=MC2 stuff) of Santa being able to actually deliver all those presents to the world … Continue reading Backward When Your Forward Is No More Or How Old Might Become New
Link: Could Frankfurt become the new Berlin for startups | The Local The confusion continues. With the insertion of (fill # here) refugees into an already dysfunctional social-market-economy (Germany's newspeak for its politburo, pseudo-communist status) there's little room for anyone in an already bursting-at-seams country (unless, of course, you're a PHD totting white German). But let's … Continue reading Why there is no Elon Musk or Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, etc., in #Germany
The singer in the pic is an example of what's to come or she's just more of how it's all been. Or did you miss her pseudo performance the other night? Btw, I'm wondering if I too could pack myself into something tight for a winter gala and still look that good while performing so poorly. The … Continue reading Things To Come, Things Been, Don’t Worry: Buy Something
