There's a glut of Curmudgeonry posts backed up in the Peak Stupidity pipeline. If they don't come out, the pressure will build up to levels capable of fracturing the entire website ... she no canna' hold, Captain, she'll blow she will!
Look for a few more, before the posting goes back to some of the themes covered as of late. Here today we will just rant on about a topic broached during the discussion of the extended mourn-porn* in the Lyin' Press for our Dowager ex-King, Bush I. Look, he died, I! GET! THAT!
When did the George HW Bush, or 41 (?!) die anyway, more than a week ago? I am still seeing flags at half-mast all over the place. Did another piece of royalty die in the meantime? Should we possibly just keep the flags where they are to cover all the possible US Feral Gov't former executives that may croak daily?
Surprisingly to me, the whole State Funeral bit has been going on since the early years of this country. I would have thought that these independent freedom-loving men would not have been interested in making a big deal of the death of an executive of one branch of their Federal Government, having said "Farewell to Kings" not so long before.
I suppose it's just the fact that it's been one after another, with Juan McAmnesty, nothing but one Neocon Senator from Arizona out of 100, being accorded this royal treatment 3 months earlier, that's got me sick of this. Let us avoid this mourn-porn as much as possible (though I wrote this post earlier, I saw flags STILL at 1/2-mast just an hour ago!)
Peak Stupidity featured the excellent Rush song, Closer to the Heart 1 1/2 years back, so here is the title song of their album, A Farewell to Kings:
