This, That, And The Other Things. . .

The Impeachment of Donald J. Trump: It's a matter of very little consequence, and I have even less interest in it than its meager merit.  I suppose the favorable outcome would be Trump re-elected, which would hasten the much-needed decline of America.  What is extremely bothersome, and a sign of the times, is the attitude of many *conservative republican* self-proclaimed Christians: that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ weeps for Donald J. Trump.  I suppose other things could be further from the truth, but. . .the Heavenly Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, trust me, are not fretting over that fat pussy Donald.  Self-proclaimed Christians who waste prayer time on the impeachment would do well to open their Bibles to Matthew 7:21-23 and pray instead the Holy Spirit give them insight into themselves, and then re-workout their own salvation with much phobias and traumas.

The Walking Dead: The first half of Season 10 has been slightly better than the horrible Season 9, due chiefly to Negan being released from character purgatory. The rest of the characters and storylines are just as lame and nauseatingly diverse as the last couple crappy seasons, in which the viewer could only fidget through the achingly dull and patronizingly pedagogical We Are The World scripts wishing death for the expanding cast of annoying awareness ribbon characters. Thankfully one such character, the *good muslim* Siddiq, was killed off in Episode 7, and as he lay dying, I was prompted to make a list of TWD's All-Time 10 Most Annoying Characters:

1. Andrea, neurotic ugly cunt
2. Henry, ADHD half-wit
3. Eugene, Fat pseudo-Dr. Smith with a mullet
4. Carol, mousy doormat improbably turned Wonder Woman

5. Every homo character (especially Aaron)
6. Every black character (including saint Morgan/excluding psycho Morgan)

7. Glenn, delivery boy dork improbably turned teenage mutant ninja turtle
8. Carl, twerpy tween improbably turned popeyed messiah
9. Jerry, fat gook court jester
10. Judith, Family Dollar Hit Girl

The National Football League: I watched the 49ers/Ravens game today.  Good game.  Resembled an old school Big 10 contest.  The Ravens game winning field goal *drive* went maybe 30 yards, and took 6 fucking minutes off the clock!  Woody Hayes' ghost spurted ectoplasm.  Anyway, we were told last week that Ravens' QB Lamar Jackson had *changed the NFL.*  OK.  We're told this every year about some new fad.  Remember Chip Kelly?  Remember the RPO?  Remember Sean McVay?  Patrick Mahomes?  Every year the NFL is *changed,* yet it somehow remains its same monotonous self. Did you see the Auburn - Alabama game?  No NFL game can ever match that energy, emotion and random craziness.  The college game is superior, and always will be.  But, Lamar Jackson.  Yeah, he can run.  But so could Bobby Douglass almost 50 years ago.  Bobby couldn't pass for shit. . .and neither can Lamar Jackson.  Bobby Douglass had a shitty Chicago Bears team surrounding him, and they lost week-in and week-out.  Lamar Jackson is on a solid Ravens team. . .but if the Ravens are ever down 10 points in the 4th quarter, forget it, they're beat.  Jackson is a horrible passer. The Lamar Jackson NFL will last about as long as the Chip Kelly NFL.

US Workforce Dying At A Record Pace: So read the headline of a recent news story which states the engine that powers the world’s most potent economy is dying at a worrisome pace, a “distinctly American phenomenon’’ with no easily discernible cause or simple solution. Those are some of the conclusions from a comprehensive new study by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University showing that mortality rates for U.S. adults ages 25-64 continue to increase, driving down the general population’s life expectancy for at least three consecutive years. The study paints a bleak picture of a workforce plagued by drug overdoses, suicides and organ-system diseases while grappling with economic stresses.  While I agree there is no simple solution, there is an easily discernible cause, which I recently explained recently here
