The Day Our Trust Died

February 21, 2023

Many historians cite the assassination of President Kennedy as “The Day America Lost Her Innocence.” True, the shock of the public execution of our youngest elected president stunned millions of people both here and abroad. All who lived through it, and the horrors that followed in the wake of the killing, could not help but find themselves profoundly changed. But as terrible as the killing was, far more damage – lasting damage – came about because of the official government reaction to killing. This happened in response to the twenty-seven volumes of The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy – known as the Warren Commission after its chair, Chief Justice Earl Warren of the United States Supreme Court.

Warren Commission Members

Members of The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy – The Warren Commission

Almost from the start, from the day the commission released it, the Warren Report faced extreme skepticism, especially when one considered the people appointed to the Commission; in terms of inappropriateness, no appointment surpassed that of Allen Dulles, who President Kennedy had unceremoniously booted as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency after the Bay of Pigs Invasion fiasco. Yeah, HE’S an impartial judge of fact… America’s news media, which up till that time had enjoyed – some say squandered – the complete trust of the TV viewing public did not help any. NBC news and CBS news each televised a detailed analysis of the commission’s report on Sunday, September 27, 1964, telling viewers exactly what to think – ON THE VERY DAY THE VOLUME CONTAINING THE REPORT HIT THE STORES. And at that point TRUST in both GOVERNMENT and MEDIA died as surely as if they too had gotten gunned down on November 22, 1963.

Regarding the video above. Note how House Speaker Kevin McCarthy relates the tale of this PERFECT EAGLE SCOUT who died, while glossing over the fact that the kid was taking shit he bought on the street. McCarthy whips up an aura of innocence in this case because MR STRAIGHT A COLLEGE STUDENT was NOT buying fentanyl… oh,no! Perish the thought. Fentanyl was “laced with something else that he was just purchasing.” Oh? Like what? DORITOS? RING-DINGS? SLIM-JIMS? A HAM SANDWICH?
Why not come out and say it: The young man scored some bad shit and it killed him. You don’t have to make him out as a saintly innocent bystander. He didn’t deserve to die. But why dance around the fact that he took his chances and paid with his life? No, he has to be a STRAIGHT A EAGLE SCOUT. This is why I loathe and despise those holocaust movies in which some super talented person has his life ruined and thus WE are the victims because WE will never hear his concerto. The only value in that person’s life was in what WE got out of it? The lowest vilest nastiest mamzer who died at the hands of the nazis also deserved to live.
How about a movie about a horrible nasty person. The audience HATES him. And THEN he’s sent to the camps and killed in the gas chambers. Would the audience cheer? This kind of movie would be the test of TRUE compassion.

The Killing Of Gromek

Alfred Hitchcock, who made a documentary about the ovens, did just that in one scene in Torn Curtain and it effectively killed the whole movie. He got the entire audience so riled up at the “villain” that people thought KILL HIM! KILL HIM!! (’cause that’s how we react to movies) and when he does get killed, it is revolting. Hitchcock held a mirror up to the audience and they hated what they saw. It was so horrific, that Hitchcock was forced to REMOVE a later scene with the dead man’s benign twin brother – for it only reminded the audience that they had blithely demanded the other twin be killed; they had participated in his killing. Of course, Hitchcock deliberately manipulated the viewer into feeling that rage so it was all an elaborate set-up. But just showing the scene – the killing of Gromek – without the events leading up to it weakens it, so I will not put it here. My point is, there is NO need to deify the victims of a crime, as House Speaker McCarthy does here, complete with his Clintonesque, phony “I Feel Your Pain” vocal quality. A human being died. That’s all that matters.

What Does “Hunter” Own?

February 3, 2023

Pery Mason

While there is no doubt that the now-famous MAC repair guy in Delaware owns the abandoned laptop (which Robert “Hunter” Biden’s famous lawyer accidentally admitted belonged to Biden – a slip-up the lawyer later retracted) does that mean the repair guy owns the laptop’s content? And if so, what rights does he have to that content?

I decided to delve into this issue. At great personal expense, I have consulted a retired lawyer, a defense lawyer, a prosecutor, and an experienced legal mediator. She’s sitting here looking at me right now…

So here is how it seems to work. If, say, you pay tens of thousands of dollars to buy a stash of letters from, oh, Ernest Hemingway, what did you buy? You bought the physical letters, but that does NOT entitle you to claim ownership of the words, the content of those letters, and so you may not legally publish them without the permission of the author or the author’s estate. One may not even DISPLAY these letters because that amounts to a form of publishing. If you shell out millions for the original manuscript of The Green Mile, yes you now own it. But you do NOT own the words. Stephen King retains authorship. You have shelled out big bucks for the world’s largest paper-weight. Now suppose you have acquired, legally, a neglected Stephen King laptop with the manuscript on it. Do you now own the book and all the rights to it?

Hunter Belmondo copy 2

Have I Used This Image LEGALLY? I Mean, Do I Have The Legal Right To Use Jean-Paul Belmondo’s image? How About FAIR USE For Commentary/Satire? Not So Easy, eh?

And that presents the legal question in this case. Did the new owner of the material have PUBLICATION RIGHTS? Because he has, as we all know, spent a couple of years spreading the content of the laptop all over the place, as have many news reporters. Do they have the legal right to broadcast, meaning PUBLISH, the contents? That awaits litigation. Of course, we may never see litigation concerning that issue. The Biden side, in this case, has a hell of a lot more to lose than the Computer Guy does. The legal consensus in my private poll says that Biden would have to be an absolute moron to pursue this. But then, the apple doesn’t rot far from the tree, now does it…
And no, despite the legal geniuses on social media, there is no such case as FINDERS v. KEEPERS.

Damn That Reagan! And Other Myths of Low-Information Voters…

December 16, 2022

Here in NYC Mayor Eric Adams (a SENIOR CITIZEN of Social Security age for whom many people voted while claiming “Give him a chance as Mayor! He’s young!”) has floated a plan to involuntarily detain mentally ill New Yorkers. Those words, of course, offer a coded way to say WE’RE ARRESTING HOMELESS PEOPLE WHO HAVE SET UP CAMP ON THE STREETS AND IN THE SUBWAYS. The City has tried this before, especially in Winter, but some fanatical “do-gooders” always manage to thwart the plan, as they ignore lives at risk in favor of a supposed right to bivouac on public property in the most unsanitary ways possible. Assisting people clearly in need of some kind of help, ranks lower in their schema of values than fighting for the right to live in squalor and unbridled mental illness.
I have known homeless people, both while and before they fell to such low estate. And we have here a Chicken/Egg paradox: Did they fall into homelessness as a result of mental problems or, having found themselves homeless, did that horrible shock bring about mental problems? This, I leave to other people to argue over as people among us die, both physically and spiritually. The fact remains that in New York City, on the streets, we’ve got a profusion of homeless people of all ethnicities and both sexes, and some among them have hurt people on the streets, killed people on our subways, killed each other, vandalized businesses, even looted shops to the point of forcing the targeted stores to close up for good. 

Ride Aid Closes

This wave of crime, especially the looting (euphemistically called by media, “shoplifting”) has attracted the attention of news around the world, Civil Liberties groups, and of course that modern scourge on society Social Workers (do not get me started on that!). The consensus seems to indicate that homelessness and crime sprout exclusively from the soil of poverty. Thus “woke” prosecutors, with careers funded by a particularly odious, moribund billionaire, refuse to follow through on cases of this theft because they deem such prosecutions “criminalizing poverty.”  We can get into that stunning bit of poppycock at another time.

Poverty and Crime copy

The problem of mentally ill homeless people has not confined itself to New York City, where I live. The looting and homeless encampments in many American cities present an embarrassment to politicians all across the land. History clearly shows us that democrats, in particular, only care about an issue to the extent that it will help or hurt their vote-gathering. Look at this extract from a NY Times comment posted in an article about homelessness and mental illness. In fact, this sentence comes at the culmination of the comment, for special emphasis: Democrats better get on top of the situation or the Republicans will unfairly pin all responsibility on them. If voters poll negatively on this, we have a chance that the democrat-run cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Orleans, in which this has blown up into a crisis, may do something. I tell you, democrats are all heart…

Well now, with public outrage growing NYC’s republican-turned-democrat Mayor Eric Adams has proposed involuntary commitment for the mentally ill in NYC as a way of helping these lost souls. Please note, Adams has articulated no actual plan. He has merely made an announcement about a possible plan. And now The Usual Suspects show signs of losing their minds, spinning bizarre stories about what could happen if this idea becomes reality.

One problem right off the bat with the Eric Adams Conjecture (we cannot call it a plan): we don’t even know WHO will get rounded up under the Adams Non-Plan. What IS mental illness in a nation in which almost 25% of people take prescribed psychoactive drugs and millions more dose themselves on their own? Defining mental illness presents serious problems. Definitions of mental illness are more fluid than the gender of a Public School teacher on Tik-Tok. As an example, allow me to present two words: NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. Decades ago, people got hauled off to the Laughing Academy by the truckload with a diagnosis of Nervous Breakdown. Then Miltown® showed up on the scene.

Miltown Ad

Today, nobody uses the term Nervous Breakdown. Perhaps doctors have replaced it with Post Vietnam Syndrome – which they later (and lucratively) rebranded as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We can discuss the political history of an allegedly medical condition another time, but for now let’s accept the almost ubiquitous PTSD as an example of the way “diseases” appear, disappear, and reappear in psych texts under various guises. This makes the involuntary detaining of the mentally ill a bit more subjective than people would like to think of for a “science”. So, who gets detained? Those who do harm to themselves? Like, smokers? Heavy drinkers? Men who cheat on their wife (a serious cause of death!)? I start with this:

Q: Who Should Get Hospitalized Against Their Will?
A: Anyone who does not act according to their will, but acts strictly according to their compulsions. By definition the seriously mentally ill have no will, and there we have the heart of the problem that such people live with. Over and over, when I have had the opportunity to ask such people about something wrong that they did, I get some version of this reply: “I knew it was wrong but I could not help myself.” And there we see why legally, the insane (a legal term NOT a medical term) generally do not get held  responsible for their actions. Of course knowing they did something considered wrong, often invalidates an insanity defense according to a standard set in 1843. But that opens a whole other can of worms.


Worms aside, I see a pattern in “root causes” espoused by readers of the NY Times, a formerly respected newspaper:
“Homelessness is caused by Reagan shutting down all American mental hospitals in 1982!!!! All we have to do is RE-OPEN THEM!!!!!And there we have the sum and substance of NY Times comments on the topic. Political mythology at its best. They heard something repeated over the years and now they believe it. So for these people, who steadfastly claim that we have NO mental hospitals in America, I present a bit of shock therapy: Below I have linked to a ranking of the ten best MENTAL HOSPITALS in the USA.

Yes, America STILL has mental hospitals and psych wards. If you cling to the delusion that we have had no mental hospitals here since the 1980s, just click on the image below to read the list and see which facility on the list can help you with your persistent hallucinations…. but I won’t hold my breath.  I just hope that you can cover up your delusions before some vote-hungry democrat official sends the Social Workers out for YOU.
Till then: Expect about three more years of useless palaver before something even starts to get done. Down the road: “The Eric Adams Commission on Mental Health And Veganism” staffed by several of his highly paid relatives and buddies…

How’s That Single Mom Thing Working Out?

September 15, 2022

OR: A Woman Needs A Man Like
A Fish Needs A Bicycle…

Shocking news from the ivy-bound walls of academe. Former New York City mayor Warren Willhelm, Jr (aka Bill de Blasio) has given up his run for congress in Manhattan and will soon take up residence in that sinecure for failed “progressives”… Harvard.

Once ensconced at Harvard, de Blasio will join other giants of the intellectual community along the Charles River, including but not limited to Pie-Eating champion Brian Stelter, formerly of the NY Times and CNN (which back in the 1990s was a news outlet).

Stelter is rumored to be heading to the Harvard sculling team, but only if he can return to the fine physical form he maintained before he sold his soul for a mess of high-carb pottage.

Yes, THIS is Brian Stelter before CNN threw tons of money his way to destroy his reputation as a journalist – to say nothing of his waistline…

De Blasio… Harvard… What will a failed NYC Mayor talk about in his “lectures” – meaning self-promotional campaign speeches? He will discuss his POLICY SUCCESSES as mayor. To those among us who know of no such successes, here is his imagined triumph: UNIVERSAL PRE-K for 3-year-olds. This, of course, FREES mothers from having to raise their own children. Note I did not say PARENTS. The need for this warehousing of infants comes from the need of SINGLE MOTHERS. Remember this from the 1960s? “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” – Irina Dunn
WHY should a woman’s LIFE be changed simply because she has children? It’s not FAIR!!! Women need to be FREE! And they don’t need a MAN – unless the poor sap acts as a gamete donor. 

So How’d That Work Out?

Let’s look as some grim stats from a few short years ago…

➤ 85% of youth who are currently in prison grew up in a fatherless home. (Texas Department of Corrections)

➤ 7 out of every 10 youth that are housed in state-operated correctional facilities, including detention and residential treatment, come from a fatherless home. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ 39% of students in the United States, from the first grade to their senior year of high school, do not have a father at home. Children without a father are 4 times more likely to be living in poverty than children with a father. (National Public Radio)

➤ Children from fatherless homes are twice as likely to drop out from school before graduating than children who have a father in their lives. (National Public Radio)

➤ 24.7 million children in the United States live in a home where their biological father is not present. That equates to 1 in every 3 children in the United States not having access to their father. (National Public Radio)

➤ Girls who live in a fatherless home have a 100% higher risk of suffering from obesity than girls who have their father present. Teen girls from fatherless homes are also 4 times more likely to become mothers before the age of 20. (National Public Radio)

➤ 57% of the fatherless homes in the United States involved African-American/Black households. Hispanic households have a 31% fatherless rate, while Caucasian/White households have a 20% fatherless rate. (National Public Radio)

➤ In 2011, 44% of children in homes headed by a single mother were living in poverty. Just 12% of children in married-couple families were living in poverty. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ Children who live in a single-parent home are more than 2 times more likely to commit suicide than children in a two-parent home. (The Lancet)

➤ 72% of Americans believe that a fatherless home is the most significant social problem and family problem that is facing their country. (National Center for Fathering)

➤ Only 68% of children will spend their entire childhood with an intact family. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ 75% of rapists are motivated by displaced anger that is associated with feelings of abandonment that involves their father. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ Living in a fatherless home is a contributing factor to substance abuse, with children from such homes accounting for 75% of adolescent patients being treated in substance abuse centers. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ 85% of all children which exhibit some type of a behavioral disorder come from a fatherless home. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ 90% of the youth in the United States who decide to run away from home, or become homeless for any reason, originally come from a fatherless home. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ 63% of youth suicides involve a child who was living in a fatherless home when they made their final decision. (U.S. Department of Justice)

➤ Children who live in a single-parent or step-family home report less schoolwork monitoring, less social supervision, and lower educational expectations than children who come from two-parent homes. (American Sociological Review)

➤ Even when poverty levels are equal, children who come from a two-parent home outperform children who come from a one-parent home. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services)

➤ Within the African-American/Black community, about 2.5 million fathers live with their children, while 1.7 million fathers are not living with them. (Huffington Post)

➤ In a 2014 study, only 3% of single mothers fell into the strongest demographic groups, while 44% fell into the weakest demographic groups. (Brookings)

➤ About 40% of children in the United States are born to mothers who are not married. Over 60% of these children were born to mothers who were under the age of 30. (CDC)

➤ 25% of children are the age of 18 are currently being raised without the presence of a father. Around 50% of single mothers have never married. 29% are divorced. Only 1 in 5 are either separated or widowed.

➤ In single-mother households, 50% involve just one child. 30% of single mothers are raising two children on their own. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ 27% of single mothers were jobless for the entire year while taking care of their children. Only 22% of those who were out of work were receiving unemployment benefits at the time. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ The median income for a household with a single mother is $35,400. The median income for a home with a married couple raising their children is $85,300 in the United States. Two-thirds of low-income working families with children are in the African-American community. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ Over 30% of fatherless homes are classified as being food insecure, yet only 13% of homes will utilize the services of a food pantry. Over 30% of fatherless homes also spend more than half of their income on housing costs, which classifies the household as experiencing a severe housing burden. (U.S. Department of Agriculture)

➤ In the United States, Mississippi has the highest number of fatherless homes, with 36% of households falling into the category. Louisiana comes in second at 34%, while Alabama is third at 31%. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ Children who live in a fatherless home are 279% more likely to deal drugs or carry firearms for offensive purposes compared to children who live with their fathers. (Allen and Lo)

➤ 92% of the parents who are currently in prison in the United States are fathers. (Glaze and Maruschak)

➤ Pregnant women who do not have the support of the father experience pregnancy loss at a 48% rate. When the father is present, the prevalence of pregnancy loss falls to 22%. (Shah, Gee, and Theall)

➤ For single dads, 39% of households had a family income which was $50,000 or more. 44% of single dads were divorced, while only 33% had never married. (U.S. Census Bureau)

➤ 43% of fathers do not see their role as something that is important to their personal identity. 54% of fathers in the U.S. say that parenting isn’t enjoyable all of the time. (Pew Research)

➤ Even in homes with fathers, the modern dad spends only 8 hours per week on child care, which is 6 hours less than the modern mom. On the other hand, 43% of the modern dad’s time is spent with paid work, compared to 25% of the time for the modern mom. Dads are spending 3 times more time with their kids than dads did in 1965. (Pew Research)

➤ Only 5% of households in the United States say that the ideal situation is to have the mother work and the father stay home to take care of the children. (Pew Research)

➤ 53% of Americans say that mothers do a better job at parenting than fathers. Only 1% of Americans say that fathers are able to do a better job at parenting than mothers. (Pew Research)

➤ 70% of adults say it is equally important for a newborn to spend time bonding with their father and their mother. (Pew Research)


“Among all homeless families nationwide, about two thirds (60%) were headed by single women with children — representing 21% of the total homeless population.” – 2022, Single Mother Guide


According to the 2021 U.S. Census Bureau report, out of about 11 million single parent families with children under the age of 18, nearly 80 percent were headed by single mothers. Median income for SINGLE MOTHERS: $49,214. The poverty rate for single-mother families in 2020 was 23.4%, almost five times more than the rate (4.7%) for married-couple families. 62% of Single-Mothers use Food Stamps.

Add to the stats above the problems we will all face down the road by children who get raised, not by loving and nurturing parents, but minimum wage hires with NO concern other than keeping the kids from acting “unruly”. 

Nice, yes? Experts define CHILD ABUSER as a parent who puts his or her NEEDS above the needs of the child. And that’s what has happened for decades. Now politicians who bloviate about The Family boast about having government raise kids at the most impressionable stage of their young lives. What could possibly go wrong with that? This flood of NEEDY FATHERLESS children who grew up but never matured, explains the GLUT of elderly men elected to office year after year… These neglected people NEED A DADDY and they will get one regardless of the consequences stemming from their childish needs….

I Am Back

Hi! I was stranded far from cyberspace by a massive computer breakdown. I am back now. NEW posts coming!

All I Will Say About Abortion…

June 24, 2022

Don’t like your state laws? WORK TO CHANGE THEM.
Lobby legislators.
Lobby the Governor.
PRIMARY all those with whom you disagree.
That’s called… DEMOCRACY.
Also, work to get a proposition on the ballot so citizens can vote on it. The Bill of Rights states that we have that power.
The SCOTUS abortion decision adheres to the 10th Amendment which puts this in the hands of The People.

tenth amendment
The power is at long last removed from the courts and resides, quite properly, with The People.
This is precisely why Ruth Bader Ginsberg disliked Roe as a decision. She felt it eliminated political solutions and so it cut out The People.
The ball is in YOUR court now…
PRO choice? ANTI choice?

Here’s the real CHOICE:


I'm Mad About Something I never Researched

Ballot Abortion
