"New York City should finally scrape out the sewer that is always just
under the surface of its politics and media and finances, the breeding
ground for people like Cohn and Giuliani and Donald Trump."

Get back to me when you Maine hicks apologize for electing Paul LePage, asshole. Seriously -- the guy's named after a brand of airplane glue.

You are such a good example of what I'm talking about. Thanks for another easy post.

Simels, the typing horse's ass seems to forget this little exchange from August where I pointed out that I've been constantly slamming my home state for electing Paul LePage and I've been pretty much slamming it for that since it happened.

Note that first link was a response to Simps, the "Drooling Fool" which he obviously forgot.  I think if he had what you need to lose to become senile I'd suspect that was what it was.  Only I don't think he's got an attention span that long.

In the mean time, I would like a listing of his posts slamming his idea of the center of the universe which has inflicted Cohn, Giuliani, Trump and who knows how many other volcanoes of venom on the world.   New York City is unusual, even by big city standards, for inflicting long standing evil in the country and the world.  Look at how long it took them to disbar Roy Cohn and the cowards had to wait till he was on his deathbed to do it.   Though that scene in Angels in America was quite satisfying.  Meryl Streep as Ethel Rosenberg, Al Pacino, some of the best acting America has ever produced.  Too bad I can't believe she was innocent, anymore.

Update 2:  I would like to be able to assume that anyone who reads what I've written would know that I am absolutely opposed to capital punishment, especially someone like Stupy Simels with whom I've argued on that point as recently as August 29th, but apparently his short term memory has already gone.   That the Rosenbergs, guilty as we now must conclude they were, should not have been executed and that they were railroaded to their death, is also something that Stupy knows I hold.  For example, here's just one of the things I said about that:

Those anti-democratic ideologies, all of them materialist ideologies, dominated and wasted the time and meager resources and the sacred honor of the left.   They had no legitimate claim on those, they used the tales of their victimization by J. Edgar Hoover, Joseph McCarthy, etc. to gull the left into destroying itself on their behalf.  I will say in passing that I am really angry with the credibility wasted on such things as the Rosenbergs, sold to and by the left as innocent martyrs in ten-thousand rehashings of their case, only to find out that Julius Rosenberg, certainly and Ethel Rosenberg almost certainly were, indeed, atomic spies for Stalin.  The time and loss of credibility for the left, claiming their total innocence would have been better spent on opposing the death penalty, the only real wrong done to them.

I could have added that the Rosenbergs who could have very likely saved their lives by admitting that they were involved with an attempt to give the bomb to a dictator who was, if anything, a far more accomplished mass murderer than Hitler but were ordered by their Communist bosses to not confess, were stupid to not save themselves by telling the truth.   They obviously cared more about their red-fascist cult than they did about their sons or the truth.

As for "everyone in the world wants to go to New York City".  I can assure you there are far more millions of people, billions of people who would never want to live there and many who don't have any inclination to visit it.   There are a few pictures there I'd like to see or see again, fewer musical events I'd like to hear but other than that nothing could entice me to go back.   I'd rather live in Augusta Maine, one of the most hideous towns in my state and I don't care if I never see that again, either.


  1. "New York City is unusual, even by big city standards, for inflicting long standing evil in the country and the world. "

    That must be why everybody in the world wants to live there.

  2. Too bad you didn't add that neither of the Rosenbergs should have been executed.

    I wonder why.

  3. I have nothing against NYC, but having visited I definitely don't want to live there.

    And I live in a whole country full of people equally happy to "make it" where they do live, and never live in NYC, either.

    1. I don't know how many people I knew who tried to talk me into moving there, just about all of them now dead. I admired a number of things in NYC (many museums, musical institutions but, definitely not the Philharmonic) but the general atmosphere was awful. I've never been in a place where there was more coercion to pretend it was the greatest place on Earth even as the people there seemed to hate pretty much everyone else who lived there. I met a lot more people with a lot more in common with Donald Trump there then Simps would ever want to admit. People like him.
