Vocabulary Pop Quiz

 

Check out Donald J. Trump’s original… i.e., prior to correction… Tweet…

“The Fake News Media and their Democrat Partners are working hard to determine whether or not the future attack by terrorist Soleimani was “eminent” or not, & was my team in agreement. The answer to both is a strong YES., but it doesn’t really matter because of his horrible past!” – – – 8:09 AM – 13 Jan 2020

Might the resultant confusion, chaos and controversy surrounding whether (or not) Soleimani’s threat was imminent”… in actuality… be rooted in the fact that Trump doesn’t even know how to define that key word… namely… the diff between “imminent” and “eminent” bewilders him?

NSFW (expletives) Vid of The Day

My site’s goal is to keep expletives to the bare minimum. Were I given a choice of a squeaky clean version of the above clip, I’d have used it. So… why do I feature Mathew Hahn’s parody… AS IS? Because…

• the actual obscenity, here, is less about a few dirty words and more about the dirty deeds they describe.

• we do live in a society where peppered with salty language discourse will snag far more attention.

• considering how Donald J. Trump simply couldn’t resist rubbing out Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, we now find ourselves on the verge of a global, nuclear holocaust. And, what, pray tell, could be more obscene than that?

To be sure, it would take a slew of historians and psychiatrists, all specializing in Middle East cultures, to even begin to unravel all of the tightly interwoven, detrimental causes and effects, which have been tying up that region… from time immemorial.

Granted, Mr. Peabody’s narrative and Sherman’s astute conclusions… clocking out at a mere 4:18… can only address the more recent highlights… correction… let’s call these historical events America’s low-lights. Even so, these cartoon heroes (from my youth… maybe yours, too?) do point out the glaring, inescapable truth…

Multiple generations of American intruders, carrying baggage bulging with animosity and avarice driven, foreign policy, have royally mucked up the Middle East. Factoring in how the current Oval Office Occupant is building upon THAT rickety foundation…

The End

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Fake Prez’s UnFake War? (Vid of the Day)

As average citizens, not having access to the same intelligence reports afforded a sitting POTUS, we can never really know, for sure, whether or not Donald J. Trump’s choice to bump off Iranian General Qasem Soleimani went down for any justifiable reason(s). Of course, the secondary issue here…

When it comes down to Donny, would
intelligence ever even enter the picture?

And speaking of pictures… YouTuber Sky News did title our featured clip thusly…

“Is the US attack a ‘Wag the Dog’ scenario?”

To flesh that out…

Will a “Don’s” Hit on the General act as a Major Distraction?

Trump could easily sucker in the unwitting media to aid and abet his deflection of the voters’ attention away from his impending impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate (perhaps even causing a significant delay in such proceedings).

The Bad News…

Unlike film fiction, America going to war with Iran will not be akin to character Stanley Motss’ produced, fake war.

Trump will wind up spilling oceans of red blood and pissing away red ink “just” to help him stain the Electoral Map blood red.
