The Americans – Russian Spies – Life Imitates Art

I’ve just finished season three of The Americans. Russian spies that speak perfect English and live among us in America. We were taught this when I was in school. That Russia had built entire “American cities” to train spies. They wore American clothes, ate American food, drove American cars, and spoke only English so they would not have a Russian accent. You can still find this talked about online. Let us assume they had to have been trained somewhere and not quibble over it being a town/village/city/single street size. This…

Review – The Irishman

★★★★★ This is the best film about Jimmy Hoffa ever made. Gospel truth, I think it is one of the best movies any of these guys have ever made. Robert Deniro is absolutely phenom. Joe Pesci was only recognizable by his voice. Al Pacino is known for throwing himself into roles and he pole vaulted into this one. Deniro has a line near the beginning that goes something like this. Kids today know nothing about Jimmy Hoffa. Oh, they might know he was someone who disappeared, but they know nothing…

I’m Glad Kentucky Flooded

They gave us Moscow Mitch who helped jury rig the selection of Supreme Court Justices allowing President Joe Manchin III to overturn Roe v Wade. I know many of you will call me names for saying this, but it’s about time all of the Christian Taliban living in that state found out God doesn’t love them. They have committed the Ultimate Sin of Man. In case the credit doesn’t come through in the current WordPress theme, the featured image came from rollingstone.com. Kentucky has been screwing America ever since they…

Ben & Jerry – Tax the Rich!

It’s an election year so screaming “Tax the Rich!” makes people feel good and can get someone running for office a lot of votes. The trouble is it doesn’t work. They always buy a senator to put in a loophole or they simply hide all of their assets in a country that doesn’t tax the rich. Think Panama Papers. I have written about this topic many times before. I cannot find the original 2010 version but here is the 2013 version. In 2019 I changed the name from “The Ethics…

Christian Taliban

I have to say that I’m impressed with Adam Kinzinger and his Christian Taliban phrase making the news lately. It well and truly fits. My God! Here in Illinois the Republican primary was full of Christian Taliban this past week. Tons of television commercials stating “I will never apologize for my religion and I will force it on you all.” For years I have been calling these people Bible Thumping Terrorists but Christian Taliban is a bit more accurate. They got the name Bible Thumping Terrorists when they started fire…

#cancelQuora

With the constant flood of new “social media” sites, Quora adds itself to the list of sites you can’t trust. If you’ve never went there, consider yourself lucky. I’m currently trying to assess if any of the ETFs I hold have any stake in that dog. It’s destined to become a not-fond memory of the Internet. During the pandemic I got invited to participate on Quora. I was doing some coding on RedDiamond and helping out on the family farm, so I thought, why not? The urge to finish writing…

Impeach Clarence Thomas

I was going to stay out of this Impeach Clarence Thomas movement. To me it was obvious that President Joseph Manchin III wanted Roe v. Wade overturned. There was no way anyone could have believed the testimony under oath of Brett Kavanaugh, especially after the penis in the face story broke. The Imbecile n Chief Donald Trump had promised on the campaign trail that he was going to put judges on the Supreme Court that would do just that. They made him that pledge and rushed to do it when…
