"Normal or Crazy" The New Battle Cry?

Despite vows not to watch it, I did. 

I am too much of a political junkie to avoid a free dose of Biden dope via his second State of the Union (SOTU) address. And? Horrible. Absolutely horrible. I hope never to go through a similar experience again. Must get myself to rehab. Maybe Hunter can pay for it?

This was the worst SOTU address, and the worst Joe Biden speech I have ever heard. I don't know where to begin. 

The lies and half-truths spilled out non-stop from start to agonizing disjointed finish. He lied about Social Security, Medicare, and then had to retract it right in front of us. He rambled on and on about airline baggage fees and hidden resort charges. What? This is a priority with the challenges we face? 

His comments about some McDonald's cashier being forced to sign a "non-compete agreement" was pure fantasy. Delusional.

He also used the line, again, about poor mothers having to park in the McDonald's parking lot so their children could use the free WiFi to do their homework. Obsession with McDonald's! So these poor people have cars and computers but don't have access to WiFi except in the McDonald's parking lot? Right. Why not Starbucks? You know, where the cool people go.

He glossed over the threat from the China, ignored Iran, ignored the disaster at the border, mumbled about some inconsequential program to fight the ravages of fentanyl, and lied and lied and lied. 

He stole whole chunks of his address--he, after all, is a known plagiarist--from Trump: his "Made in America" spiel was pure Trump but without any conviction. His description of the "booming" economy was absurd. He lied about his tax program, which will affect every American negatively. His claims about inflation and the energy industry were bald-faced lies. He virtually ignored the disaster in Ukraine except to state briefly we will continue to support Ukraine, "we will finish the job!" He bought the anti-police line of the left, and basically threw the cops under the bus. Shameful. 

I could go on, but won't. 

Governor Sanders' reply was pretty good. I thought the first one-half to two-thirds excellent, the end, however, fell into platitude territory--I can forgive that, I guess. 

She was clearly presenting herself as a serious candidate for President, never mentioned Trump by name but noted her youth and called for a new generation of leaders. Her line that the choices we now face are not between right or left, but between "normal or crazy" was brilliant. She said the quiet part aloud. That is the real division in the US and the West. To have a major politician state this so clearly is liberating and should embolden the normal people of the West to take up the fight against the crazies. I note that much of the MSM/DNC echo chamber is attacking her stark description and warning the GOP not to make it a slogan. That, of course, means that is exactly what should be done.  

Well, gotta go. Preparing for another lightning visit to Spain and the work on my Taj Mahal apartment. Got doctors to see before I go, and taxes to pay. Zelensky and the illegals in NY hotels need my money.


  1. Thanks for taking the dose of bitter medicine for us. I merely saw fragments such as his call to "veto restrictions on frisizhnjubs" and that was quite enough.

  2. I would prefer if you didn't spell the transliteration of Ukraine's buffoon's name with that politically correct double "y". It doesn't exist in any European language AFAIK and just looks awkward and counter-intuitive to an English speaker. A single "y" and the common Slavic ending "-sky" will suffice and looks much better.

  3. I had to leave after the first 3 minutes. Nausea overcame me. In the next room even with headphones, all I could hear was the old gomer yelling for an hour.
    Disgusting performance.

  4. How did Delaware elect this buffoon for so many years? Is it a corrupt state or are the people there just stupid?

  5. Owing to the time difference between us here in Oz and "the Swamp" I started to watch a replay of Joe's speech.
    I was under the impression that English was the official language of the USofA. Obviously I was wrong as I could only understand a small portion of what Joe was saying - the rest was obviously some variant of abridged Swahili and I turned off.
    Looking on the bright side each passing day is one less until the time the American people can show him the door.

    1. Don't worry. I didn't understand most it either.

  6. I liked the disruptions Republicans showed Presidentish Biden. He has earned them in spades. We in the US are in a street fight with the Dems. They mean to win by any means necessary. We have always wanted to seem 'principled' which is just another way of spelling defeat. The well coiffed and fragrant Mitt Romney types are in the way. Conservatives won't win being conservative.

  7. I would not but this tripe of my own free will so then need to steal if from me at the point of a gun to fund their nepharious schemes.

    Spell check does not know the meaning of nepharious. that is hilarious right there.

    Anyway, looks like we have about 3 months to get everything in order and then shelter in place. Be ready to defend to get some range time in. Soon.

    1. The tinhead doesn't know anything that wasn't put in it by some bonehead.

  8. Perhaps spell check would recognize nefarious Paul.

  9. " ... and warning the GOP not to make it a slogan. That, of course, means that is exactly what should be done. "

    Spot on! I hope the R's figure this out some day!

  10. ..."Well, gotta go.
