Caught Short

This is from a critique of Gore Vidal. I post it here to lament that I will never understand the accusative and ablative any more that I will string theory.


For all his claims of erudition, Vidal suffered the wages of the public autodidact. I noticed he quoted Latin ad nauseam — and nearly always with his nouns and adjectives not just in the wrong cases (especially the confusion of the accusative and ablative in preposition phrases), but predictably in the fashion of those who like to copy down Latin phrases but cannot read a complete Latin sentence.

Our Slave Owning President

Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.


Not feeling enthusiastic about Romney? Repeat after me: “Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder.”

Fucking Football

A small part of our long trip this year was being away from the Alabama (and Auburn) football fanatics. This includes my wife’s family who are rabid fans. All too soon we will see team flags fluttering from car windows every Saturday and people asking us something about the game. We don’t care about the game. Grow up people, talk about ideas, politics, anything but football.

My word of the year is miasma. It applies equally to living on the same planet with Barry Hussien and his minions and in the same state as Alabama fans.

miasma – my-AZ-muh

A noxious atmosphere or influence.
