If Only She Knew The Truth.

Friend of mine is a big time animal lover.

So she posts on FB about how one of her cats is all sad because he is missing his friend, the bird, who hangs outside the apartment window.  Poor bird died, got stuck in the AC  seems, trying to keep warm.

My friend is convinced her cat is sad because the bird died.  If only she knew the truth.  Her cat likely was thinking,"Damn.  The little birdie is dead.  Shit.  I wanted to kill and eat it."

I say that as someone who's family in the past adopted a local, semi feral cat.  And it was an indoor/outdoor cat.  I caught that cat one day with one half dead bird in it's mouth, while it was still trying to capture a second one.  From that moment in time  we called that cat by her new name:  Killer Cat.

Now I am not the mushiest person when it comes to critters.  I have no desire to have a pet at this point in my life.  I appreciate those who do.  And they are free to be as crazy mushy as they like.  But the idea that a cat will miss a bird for any reason other than, "Damn I was hoping to kill and eat it?"

Silly!  Just plain silly!

I am lucky enough to have met the woman who will be the next Attorney General for New York.  She might end up being the person who more than anyone else, saves the republic from Bozo the POTUS.

Goddess protect her!

Complaining about Blurred National lines at the Olympics. Merely wrong, or also a bad person?

I am not going to name names, but earlier today I read some remark from some far, far more popular blogger than myself, throwing shade at the Blurred National lines at the Olympics.  Of course I think she is wrong and I am right, in thinking, ain't it fucking great how  someone can compete for a nation under the grandfather/mother clause?  She does not agree.  Why?  She did not explain why, but I have to guess she is one of those petty and small people who can't t look past her own narrow views.

Why do I think it is great when someone  can compete in the Olympics for a nation even if the only connection to the nation  is one had a grandparent born there?  Should be obvious.  Firstly  the Olympic movement  is a duality  where  international competition is the obvious game.  But the ideal is  international cooperation. All that in the end  we are all one, shit. And I like that we are all one shit.  So the ability to have grand kids  compete advances both.  It increases  national competition, and it fosters  the idea of blurring the lines  between  nations, and people.  Yea all that shit.

And it is a win for the athlete, who might not be in the crowded and super competitive (particularly  and for example) 97th% American percentile for the sport, but still could rate as internationally  competitive.  And it is a win for the country to be represented.  So why the fuck could anyone not like that?  Fucking beats me.

Oh  and I will name the name, only in the tags.
