Should Trump Fans Switch to Obama? | National Review

I suspect that conservative views will be in the wilderness for a while. That they will have to endure a season — maybe a long season — of unpopularity.

Yeah, they’re so unpopular that #Kookservative George Will, that man of many principles, which he changes much more often than he does his underwear, is now working hard to get Hillary Clinton elected as President.

With that sort of example, not to mention your own suicidal #NeverTrumptard nitwittery, Nordlinger, I certainly hope that “conservatism” of your sort endures an extremely long season in the wilderness.  Because if it’s the conservatism you and George Will espouse, it deserves to.

But people will sooner or later turn to them, because they are true and effective.

And that right there is just as big a lie as everything else you #Kookservatives have been peddling.

Note:  If your stomach is feeling especially strong tonight, take a gander at the comments to this load of self-serving, whiny, butthurt tripe.  Apparently nothing remains of the NRO zoo but the chimps, and they’ve all overdosed on LSD.

One commenter was pretty funny, though,when he noted that the upcoming NRO cruise was likely to be a replay of The Poseidon Adventure.

ISIS Video Threatens San Francisco, Shows Golden Gate and Skyscraper | PJ Media

“Do you think you are at war with a small group of mujahideen in Iraq, Syria, Libya and other places? You are sadly mistaken. And do you think you will defeat us by bombing our homes with your drones and F-16s?” a terrorist called Abu Ismail al-Amriki (the American) says.

“O America, indeed you are at war with … sincere Muslims around the world who yearn and desire to see the honor of Islam returned,” he adds. “And O America, indeed you are at war with the people who wish to be killed and slain for the sake of Allah… you are at war with the holy Quran.”

You wouldn’t believe how much many of us want to give every one of you Muslim barbarian savages exactly what you claim to want – yourselves killed and slain.  As for being at war with your lunatic book, well, guess what?  That burns, too.

I’ve been wondering when you’d get around to San Francisco.  Well, even here, not all of us are helpless, or too gutless to do whatever it takes to defend ourselves and ours.

 

George Will: Amoral Narcissist
Bill Quick

Why George Will’s Moral Narcissism Matters | PJ Media

Obviously feeling embarrassment (he should), Will now asserts his real reason for departing the Republican Party was Trump’s attack on the Latino judge. Indeed,  Donald was depressingly unsophisticated in the way he went about that, but I suspect Will’s actual motivation for abjuring Trump – and the Republican masses who voted for him in such record numbers – is actually more a matter of class.

I’ve been calling it the “Trump’s Not Our Kind, Dearie,” syndrome, and it is now unavoidably obvious that “Our Kind” is far more important to lickspittle second-rater George Will than America, Americans, or our liberties ever were.

He’s despicable, but as long as he’s still clubbable, and welcome at the better dinner tables, he doesn’t give a rip about any of that.

First things first for the Iron Gravy Bowl crowd.  And I guess that’s gravy dripping thickly from Will’s chin.  I mean, what else could it be?

Instapundit » Blog Archive » TAXPROF ROUNDUP: The IRS Scandal, Day 1144….

Okay, look.  This is ludicrous.  It seemed timely when that number was 50, or even 100.  But 1144?  What a joke.

Let’s stop calling it the “IRS Scandal,” and start calling it the “GOP Congress Scandal.”  Because those are the people who’ve let this travesty go on as long as it has, without using their constitutional powers to investigate and bring the perpetrators to justice.

And that, folks, is the real scandal here.  Not that Barack Obama and the Democrats have turned the Executive into a den of thieves, extortionists, and armed robbers, but that a Republican congress has permitted them to do so, and then let them get away with it.

“The inability of those elites to grapple with the rich world’s populist moment was in full display on social media last night. Journalists and academics seemed to feel that they had not made it sufficiently clear that people who oppose open borders are a bunch of racist rubes who couldn’t count to 20 with their shoes on, and hence will believe any daft thing they’re told.

Given how badly this strategy had just failed, this seemed a strange time to be doubling down.”

Obama’s Pentagon to Repeal Ban on Transgender Military Service July 1 – Breitbart

President Barack Obama’s Department of Defense (DOD) is expected to lift the ban on transgender people openly serving in the U.S. military on July 1, reports USA Today, citing unnamed defense officials.

The report suggests that that service members will be eligible for gender transition surgery once DOD regulation is changed.

I don’t care any more.  Just make all the wimmyn, especially the #VaginaVigilantes, do a mandatory service stint as well.  The next real shooting war we get into (and we will) will result in an enemy who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about political correctness, women, lgbt rights, collateral damage, or anything except doing whatever it takes to win, slaughtering most of them.

Which, in my humble opinion, wouldn’t be entirely a bad thing.

COLD ANGER – Entire Institutional Systems Will Be Dispatched Like a Feather In a Hurricane… | The Last Refuge

Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.

When the well attired lady leaves the checkout line carrying steaks and shrimp using an EBT card, the door is still held open for her; yet notations necessarily embed.

When the U.S. flags lay gleefully undefended, they do not lay unnoticed.  When the stars and stripes are controversial, yet the Mexican flag is honored – we are paying attention.

When a school community cannot openly pray, it does not mean the prayerful were absent.   When a liar seems to win, it is not without observation.  Many – more than the minority would like to admit – know the difference between science and clocks and political agendas.

Cold Anger perceives deception the way a long-term battered spouse absorbs the blow in the hours prior to the pre-planned exit; with purpose.

A shield, or cry of micro-aggression will provide no benefit, nor quarter.  Delicate sensibilities are dispatched like a feather in a hurricane.  Pushed far enough, decisions are reached.

Here’s what they’re staring down the barrel at:

Ex?  What’s that you say?  Those teeny-tiny blue areas contain huge cities with massive numbers of people?

Well, yes.  And here’s the thing about cattle pens – it makes the cattle ever so much easier to slaughter, when the anger gets cold enough.  Yet another reason why I am leaving my own cattle pen and moving back to a relatively free country with plenty of room to run and fight, if needs be.

Carswell and Hannan Freeze Out Farage, Say They WON’T Stop Immigration

Tory establishment Vote Leave’s Douglas Carswell plans to try to freeze out UKIP leader Nigel Farage from the post-Brexit cross-party negotiations, with Daniel Hannan stating that the official Leave campaign never promised British voters an end to uncontrolled immigration from the European Union (EU).

Just one day after the referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, Member of Parliament (MP) Douglas Carswell stated that UKIP leader and long-time Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage would not be invited to the cross-party committee which will negotiate Britain’s exit from the EU.

And so begins the guerrilla campaign to overturn the will of the British people.  We’ll see how well they do at beating Farage on the issue.  Anyway, it’s good they are picking this particular hill to die on, because it will make it ever so much easier for Farage to kill them on it.

Exclusive: Google, Facebook quietly move toward automatic blocking of extremist videos

SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some of the web’s biggest destinations for watching videos have quietly started using automation to remove extremist content from their sites, according to two people familiar with the process.

The move is a major step forward for internet companies that are eager to eradicate violent propaganda from their sites and are under pressure to do so from governments around the world as attacks by extremists proliferate, from Syria to Belgium and the United States.

YouTube and Facebook are among the sites deploying systems to block or rapidly take down Islamic State videos and other similar material, the sources said.

Well, I don’t give a damn about Facebook, since I’ve quit them, but Google has taken to notifying me that some of the content in my sixty or seventy thousand odd posts here and at the archive site “violates their content rules.”

None of it is supportive of Muslim terrorism, though, but everything they’ve cited to me so far has been anti-Muslim terrorism, and, to some extent, anti-Muslim as well.

I suppose in the end I’ll have to quit them as well, at least as far as advertising goes.  Which won’t be a gigantic deal, actually.  Google Ads were once a moderately significant income stream for me, but over the past few years, that stream has plummeted by about 80%.  If it goes, it won’t be all that much of a loss.  I took a much bigger hit when most of my anti-gay religious financial supporters left me.

“Elected leaders were swept aside. If that kind of transformation can take place in the U.K., then it can happen in the United States, too. We have been warned.”

Maybe a start would be to have a political class that didn’t put “independence” and “sovereignty” in quotes, as if they were alien concepts.

One more time:  You can have an absolutely terrible political/cultural Ruling Class, but unless and until someone with the skills, talents, abilities, and will to effectively push back against them comes along – think Donald Trump – nothing will happen to gainsay them.

They didn’t “create Trump.”  Trump created Trump.  And Nigel Farage created BREXIT.  And we helped.

I’ve Got To Get Out of This Place: A San Francisco Morality Tale (Feel the Love – Then Be Sure to Wipe Vigorously)
Bill Quick

I am sorry — Medium

You died last night. You were hit by a car at Howard & 7th in San Francisco when you were riding your bike through the intersection. I was a passenger in the orange prius. We saw the SUV hit you, and speed off. We screamed ‘No! No! No!’. But our screams were not heeded.

The man I was with and I ran to you. I tried to find your pulse. I couldn’t. I held your hand, someone yelled at me not to touch you. We stayed with you. You were not alone. We were loving you. We wanted to save you, help you, protect you.

Your friends and roommates have reached out ?—? they love you so much. People who love and are loved have had the sweetest taste of life. I am thankful for those who loved you so, and I am sad you don’t get to be an old loved and loving woman.Your friends and family know you were not alone.

I told them, don’t worry. I wanted them to know that we strangers were with you, not as strangers but as your human family caring desperately for you as our own.

Seventh and Howard is a nasty intersection – I know, I ride through it constantly, always with a careful eye peeled for notoriously oblivious SF drivers.  All of SOMA, given the car-choked streets, (Parking?  Hah!) the hordes of hipster bikies, and the naturally malign urban interactions between the two, is a bit of a death trap for cyclists.

That said, look at the moronic bint who wrote this acre of drivel.  The story is all about her, you see.  Somebody she’d never seen before was slain by an evil SUV, and she immediately loved the victim.  Real, true, love, you know.  Milk of human loving kindness and all that.  Only the kind of love that good progtards are capable of bestowing.  The real love, you see.

People “reached out” (god, how I hate that phrase) to her, and she reassured them.  Because she’s very important, you know.  In fact, she’s the most important person in this entire modern SF progressive morality play.  Which, of course, she then had to write up and smear all over the soppy pages of Medium, another lefty progressive propaganda megaphone.

Clue, you unbelievably irritating schmuck:  That someone you never in your life saw before, and knew nothing about, succumbed to an accident within the focus of your attention does not make that incident special or noteworthy simply because you witnessed it.  Nor should it be brutalized by you into an amorphous blob of progtard virtue signalling, even though doing so undoubtedly allows you to award yourself many, many self-esteem points.  For all you know, the unfortunate victim would have found you as repulsive as I do.

It was an accident.  It had nothing at all to do with you.  Shit happens.  Grow up.

And then, for god’s sake, shut up.

I’ve got to get out of this place.

‘This Is Not My Party’: George Will Goes from GOP to Unaffiliated | PJ Media

How about:  George Will Goes from GOP to Impotent Irrelevance?

Mine’s more accurate, at least.

Follow the Money
SteveF

Guns and the Big Business of Carnage

fear and anger also generate a lot of revenue—upwards of $16 billion, in fact, for guns and ammunitions manufacturers in 2015 alone. …

With numbers like these, there is zero financial incentive for gun retailers, gun companies and their paid-for political lackeys to take any meaningful steps to curtail gun violence. On the contrary, the gun industry tends to benefit handsomely from high-profile mass shootings

Oh, I agree: there’s big money to be had, but the no-talent jackass is looking at only half of the picture. The lesser half, I suspect.

  • Police agencies “have to” have SWAT teams and equipment budgets, which, incidentally, tend to be rolled out for what should be routine matters if there aren’t enough mass killings.
  • Gun-grabber groups send out fund raising email before the bodies are cold. Never mind that their overhead level is suspiciously hard to find and therefore probably close to 100%*, it makes donors feel good, and that’s all that matters, right?
  • Legislators on one side or the other get bribes and lobbyists of course make their living as the bag-men.
  • The propoganda arm of the socialist party – sometimes called news services – bring in lots of eyeballs and thus big bucks any time there’s guuuun violence
  • Haynes, because all those damp panties need to be replaced

Unlike the touted revenue numbers for the gun industry, which are posted in various places with various levels of plausibility (annual revenue figures range from $8B to $20B, though some of the difference comes from numbers for different years; note also that that is revenue, not profit), numbers are surprisingly (that was sarcasm) difficult to track down. Sure, some numbers are unquantifiable — you can bet that Orlando PD will see a budget increase next year, but how much can definitely be attributed to the nightclub mass shooting by that poor, misunderstood guy with no known motive? Heck, I can’t even find a figure for total police budgets in the US.

Other numbers can be tracked down, one by one (OpenSecrets.org is great for campaign donations) but only if you know what you’re looking for — you can look up donations by organization name, but there’s no aggregate figure that I know of for all donations from gun control groups.

This would make a good research project for someone with more patience and access to better information than web search engines. I’d be willing to bet the non-gun-industry profit from mass killings dwarfs the gun industry profit, though.

Not that that matters to “Paris”, the no-talent “artist” who wrote the linked essay. He’s an “activist”, and so the truth isn’t important. All that matters is persuading people of the rightness of his cause, no matter how many inconvenient facts need to be swept under the rug.

* The Brady Campaign’s 2012 budget was something over $3M, of which they spent $4018 on PACs, all for Democratic candidates. Presumably they spent money on public awareness ads and such, but given that their stated purpose was to get anti-gun politicians elected, I think it’s safe to say that they had significant “overhead”. Apropos nothing, their president’s salary is awful hard to dig up.

They Still Don’t Know What’s Hitting Them
Bill Quick

Waterloo Sunrise | City Journal

With yesterday’s Brexit vote, the European dream could be coming undone, and the experts are rattled. Financial markets are tanking, and Euro-boosters with bruised egos are rooting for the British pound to bottom out. That’ll show those ignorant bastards, seems to be their thinking. A recession would be nice, too, especially if it fell hardest on those working- and middle-class Swindon slobs who voted in high numbers to leave.

It’s funny how unhinged the best people become when they don’t get what they want. You’d think that manners, breeding, and higher education would dictate that they keep their decorum at all times. It never seems to work that way. The loudest shrieks and the shrillest commentary come from the halls of academia and the urban salons. Patriotism befuddles them. Why should you take pride in being a Briton—or a Texan, for that matter—when you could be one of us?

But, see, you can’t be one of them.  If you could, then there would be no cachet for them in being one of them.

The whole point of being one of them is that, in their own minds, such inclusion demonstrates an obvious, nay, unavoidable evidence of superiority to the likes of you.  And, frankly, you aren’t going to be born into wealth, attend Brit public schools, go to Oxbridge, and then move into some professional, financial, or technical field, just as you aren’t going to attend a ritzy northeastern prep school, then go on to Harvard, Yale, or Princeton, and then move into some professional, financial, or technical field that will eventually grant you full membership in the Masters of the Universe club.  That is, by the way, no accident.  They have, and will continue, to move the goal-posts for entry into their club until it is sufficiently exclusive to suit them – and exclude you.  Otherwise, what’s the point of having a club in the first place, if just anybody can join up?

They consider this the natural order of things.  You stay in your place, and they will stay in theirs – and their place includes being able to tell you what you can, and cannot, do.

And, frankly, this is the way the world has mostly worked for all of human history.  The boot of the few has always stomped on the face of the many…forever.

Only in America did the notion arise and become politically instituted that the many could become one great nation, and that the people could be as powerful as the plutocrats and politicians who had traditionally run everything.

Of course the plutocrats and the politicians eventually came to hate this arrangement, because they felt it deprived them of sufficient power, and so they’ve been working steadily for the past century or so to shove the United States back into the traditional Euro-template of subservience and obedience, using traditional methods like the importation of mercenaries useful in drubbing the peons into compliance.

And for a while they were so successful at this that they came to believe they had won all the battles, achieved all their goals, and emerged onto an endless high plain of unchallenged eminence…and power.

And then along came the tech revolution and destroyed all their traditional organs and instruments of power, in many cases without them even understanding that those organs and instruments had been destroyed.  In America, they recently armed their White Knight, Jeb Bush, with all the traditional tools of power – oceans of donor money, old media support, lots of insider endorsements…and Donald Trump used Twitter and Facebook to amplify his own unique message of liberation and, bluntly, stomped Jeb and all his weapons into rubble.

Trump has lit a fire, the same sort of fire that the original Founders and Framers lit nearly a quarter-millennium ago.  The French took up that torch – with mixed results – just as the English are lifting the American torch in their own land.

Today’s equivalents of King George and King Louis will not go easily, but they will go.  And it will be leaders like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage, and the tens of millions of “little people” who support them who will see them to the exits.  (Or the jail cells, if necessary).

Technology is now fomenting a new age of creative destruction.  We see the destruction easily enough.  But the nature of the creation is still unclear to us, even as it births itself before our very eyes.

What can’t go on, won’t, you say?  

Well, right now you’re experiencing the process of “won’t go on” working itself out.

Interesting, eh?

As in, “interesting times.”

Why Brexit Is Much, Much Scarier Than You Think

The process of leaving the EU takes at least two years, so European immigrants will not have to flee across the channel immediately. After that first rush of panic—what will the world be like?—a deeper panic will follow, and it should. Brexit is the first major victory for the rising xenophobia that is sweeping the world, which has already overtaken the Republican party in America, and which has gathered significant support in almost every major democracy. We have to face up to an ugly truth about the world as it is: The hatred of difference is winning.

And guess what, you Marxist simpleton:  That means you’re losing, and as we continue to take back our nations from your greedy, destructive hands, we’ll keep right on shoving you deeper and deeper into impotence and irrelevance.,

Your wails of rage and terror as that process works out will be quite sweet to our ears, I expect.

Lying Liars Lie
SteveF

Breitbart has a number of front-page articles on Crooked Hillary. One is a reminder of what a liar she is:

Clinton’s Lie About Taking ‘Sniper Fire’ in Bosnia Coming Back to Haunt Her

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Soon after the speech, the deception came to light courtesy of a reporter from The Washington Post who was there. Her statements were awarded “four Pinocchios” by the newspaper, a rating reserved for political misstatements described as “whoppers.”

That’s a famous lie, though not as well known as it should be, what with the Mendacious Socialist Media covering for the lying hag for the past several decades.

She’s still not admitting to anything, of course.

“I say a lot of things — millions of words a day — so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement,” she declared.

But her denial is either another lie — millions of words per day would mean a couple dozen words per second for 24 hours — or an admission that she’s really really bad at math.

“Bad at math” is likely. I’ve yet to meet a socialist or communist who was adept at even arithmetic beyond counting on fingers. (Ref also Bernie, the only senator in living memory too inept to enrich himself while in office.)

Or maybe the worthless bitch is just deluded. That would tie in with a statement found in another Breitbart article:

Clinton argued that she would be the best choice for president, assuring voters that her experience would help stabilize the world.

Yah, her vast experience in business, in introducing successful legislation in the Senate, and in international relations has been a wonder so far.

There’s more, but it all adds up to the same thing:

Vote Trump! Because, jeez, what are the alternatives.

Trump’s Release on BREXIT
Bill Quick

?Donald J. Trump Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership | Donald J Trump for President

The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.

Let me translate this for you:

“Dear Barry,

I’m going to ram that bust of Churchill you tossed out of the Oval Office like so much garbage right up your and Hillary’s asses.”

Sincerely,

Donald J. Trump

Presumed President 2016″

Thoughts On The Brexit
Bill Quick

First, I sure as hell got this wrong, didn’t I?  I figured that I’ve been hearing about disasters for the EU for decades now, but somehow they never seem to happen.  OTOH, I said I would believe in BREXIT when I saw it happen.  And now it’s happened.  

Very few are making the obvious connections between Trump here in the US, and the success of BREXIT in the UK, but it shouldn’t be all that difficult to see.  Both we and the UK suffer froms calcified socialist ruling political classes that are owned and operated by the same global donor class.   In both nations they have managed to create vast swathes of the left-behind, who are in no position to benefit from the policies advocated by the rich and their minions for themselves.

I call this a “let them eat cake” moment.  The ancien regimes have ignored numerous signs of massive unrest, and simply assumed that it could not affect them in any meaningful way,  “Let them eat Jeb ” they chortled here in the US, or “Let them eat Hillary.”  In the UK, it was “Let them eat the EU.”

Instead, to their utter and total shock, they are finding that they, themselves, are being eaten.

The one overriding sentiment I’m hearing from the various Brit financial and political commentors is shocked surprise:  They simply cannot believe that this happened!

Like Trump winning the GOP nomination here in the US.

BREXIT had no place in their fantasy world where all was well, and everything was under control, and they assumed that world was the real world.

It was, and is, not.  The level of hysteria I’m hearing as reality slaps them across the kisser with a dead fish is simply amazing.  By tomorrow, they’ll be predicting the end of the world, and who knows?  This time they may be right.

As you regulars know, I’ve been predicting a combination of financial, economic, and geo-political/military crackup for some time now, to provide the existential challenge that generally ends the Long Cycle.  I have no idea whether this will be a trigger for part of that or not.  But something will be, and it might be this.

We’ll know more tomorrow, and I’ll have more thoughts – in large part dealing with the mechanics of BREXIT (nobody’s actually going anywhere for at least two years) as well as possible follow-on repercussions.

I do know this:  We yatter on about how the technological revolution is profoundly disruptive, but we don’t really believe it, because we don’t see it in our daily lives, or, if we do, we don’t recognize it for what it is.  (Think iPhones.,..)  I have on occasion advanced the theory that the first major disruption of a monolithic system by the tech revolution was the fall of the Soviet Union to people with faxes and telephones and copy machines, and I have wondered when the turn of the other great monolithic system-states would come about.

I think it’s happening now.  Not today, with Brexit, but starting in 2006/2007 with the US collapse into a Great Depression, and the election of Barack Obama in response to the utter failures of George W. Bush.  Anyway, more on that tomorrow, when I’ve had a chance to think on it a bit.

Yeah, I’m Absolutely Sure There Won’t Be a Conservative Third Party Candidate (That Will Be Anything Other Than Impotent and Irrelevant)

Full commitment: RNC takes bold new step towards embracing Trump « Hot Air

Anyway. Odds that Trump will be ousted in Cleveland with the RNC now joining him in a mutual thumbs-up: Zero, down from one percent yesterday. Exit question: Are we still absolutely sure there’ll no conservative third-party candidate? Read this before you answer.

Read it, Allah, you #NeverTrumptard putz.  It was as full of hot flatulence and cold shit as you are.

The Humiliation of the American Male in 2016 | Scott Adams’ Blog

Perhaps the biggest unreported story of this presidential election is the humiliation of the American male. Unless I’m blinded by confirmation bias – which is entirely possible – it seems to me that the humiliation of American men is now institutionalized in the media.

It’s been going on for forty years.  You mean you’re just now noticing?

… But I think we all agree that Melania never asks Donald to go back to the store because he’s too dumb to buy the right kind of soap on the first try.

I predict you will see the largest male turnout of any presidential election in American history. 

Yep.  Lots of male resentment backed up over the past four decades.

Let Me Repeat That: Let Kevin D. Williamson Die

Fuck Kevin D. Williamson.  Let him die.

I no longer care about, let alone read, a word that he writes.

Ed Driscoll does, of course, but then, that’s what makes him Ed Driscoll.

Supreme Court upholds University of Texas affirmative action admissions – The Washington Post

The Supreme Court on Thursday said admissions officials at the University of Texas may consider the race of student applicants in a limited way to build a diverse student body.

The 4-to-3 decision was a surprising win for advocates of affirmative action, who say the benefits of diversity at the nation’s colleges and universities are worth the intrusion on the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection that generally forbids the government from making decisions based on racial classifications.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy said the university’s consideration of race was a “factor of a factor of a factor” and met the court’s narrow precedents.

“Factor of a factor of a factor.”

This is what passes for rigorous constitutional analysis these days, I guess.

Where does “factor of a factor of a factor” stand in relation to “penumbras?”

Pretty far out there, I would guess.

The US Constitution is meaningless toilet paper these days.  Which is only fitting, given how deeply America itself is circling the toilet bowl.
