Bigger In Japan

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Guess what?

Fiscal and monetary stimulus actually work!

Japan’s proving it, as household spending surges and the 2% (still way too low) inflation target is talked up at every opportunity.

It’s Economics 101, something completely forgotten among the elites of Europe and America.

The First Gay Basketball Player

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Is not the first professional athlete to “come out”, a very homophobic double entendre phrase, this has been going on for at least 40 years (David Kopay, Martina Navratilova, etc. etc. etc.)!

If you’re 34 years old, a professional athlete, black, and gay, the only thing that was difficult about the admission is being black while admitting you’re gay, and that’s a story and a denial worth telling…

Equally interesting is that supposedly professional news organizations like CNN/Sports Illustrated still think they can make a buck on it!

Gorilla says: “Everybody, including Know Nothings, have known gay people for decades, possibly centuries, but Know Nothings pay CNN and Fox’s bills, so shock, horror, Claude Rains, etc.!”

What Overactors Do

Friday, April 26th, 2013

They bring on the personality, in a 30s-40s kind of way, but they lack star quality.

Exhibit A: David Tennant.

Exhibit B: Emily Watson.

Gorilla says: “When you’re well down the list of scene stealers in a series, while up against better actors, might be time to reconsider and get real!”

Relics In Service

Friday, April 26th, 2013

A bit of undercarriage at last found in NYC, who cares?

While those responsible for the greatest national security disaster in American history have not been prosecuted, so what’s the point of national security?

Gorilla answers: “To maintain an upper middle class view of life, so as to allow the rich to obtain whatever they want!”

Shorter David Cameron On Syria

Friday, April 26th, 2013

“When I’m not destroying my own country with stupid, pointless austerity, I should carefully weigh the evidence about launching yet another stupid, pointless war in Syria. Or not, tally ho!”

Speaking Of Terrorism

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Why hasn’t the owner of the West, Texas fertilizer plant been put in irons?

His form of terrorism killed and maimed far more people than the two idiots in Boston.

He violated the anti-terrorism statutes about storing potentially lethal chemicals and told no one he was doing so.

Gorilla answers: “Because he’s a rich white Texan, of course, go to the library and you’ll learn that’s an ok form of terrorist and/or war criminal in the USA!”

Nobody’s Going To War For Syria, Part The Zillionth

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Our President’s doing his best to stay out of the mess in Syria, where there are absolutely no US national security interests at stake.

If it turns out that Assad used chemical weapons, what’s the difference between that and the Israelis use of white phosphorous to kill Palestinians in 2009?

You might indict Assad in the Hague (and while you’re at it indict Bush, Cheney and Netanyahu), but there’s really no support internationally for doing anything about barbarism, unless it’s committed by unimportant dark skinned and/or Eastern European folk.

Gorilla says: “Pointless wars? We know that drill!”

$400 Billion Later

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Still no F-35, but tremendous interest from Singapore, who presumably will use the fighter jet against whatever air force lacking planes might attack!

This program has been a huge waste of national treasure, and a few sales to some eagerly stupid Asian nations won’t change that.

There’s been no discussion about whether in fact we need an air force at all, given that we’re not exactly winning dogfights anymore, and that all the bombs we’ve dropped on Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq haven’t made any difference in ending these pointless wars.

Gorilla says: “The drones will be firing on more cash cows, and the Pentagon will take credit, count on it!”

Let us hear no more forever from this worthless, torturing, lying, economy destroying asshole, certainly the worst American President of all time.
