What if...?

What if I told you I had a job for you that required absolutely no specific skills or experience. No physical requirements, no credit check, no background investigation, no drug test, no interview, no references required and it paid six figures?

What if I told you that you would also receive a seven figure expense budget, Cadillac health care and free coach class air travel?

What if I told you that you could receive additional income and benefits from other companies without having to produce anything for them? What if I told you that there were no job performance evaluations and regardless what you do or don't do there are no consequences? You wouldn't even have to come to work if you didn't want to.

What if I told you that the job was guaranteed for at least four years -- you cannot be fired -- but could be extended with no limits and afterwards you would receive a pension for life?

Sound too good to be true? Of course it does, sounds childish doesn't it? How could you receive such a ridiculous amount of money with no specific productive skills and no reasonable expectations of performance and productivity? What kind of organization could succeed with such an asinine business model? 



That's government. They don't produce anything. They consume at the end of the barrel of a gun. The authority of the institution is an illusion.

Hasn't this Corona crisis that wasn't, sufficiently demonstrated this point?

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
