Lawlessness is Constitutional. And apparently the new normal.

Lawlessness is Constitutional.

Yup…the “Highest Lawless in teh Land”. So glad we all get to witness what happens when we devolve back to “the Rule of Men”…yay!

Happy Hump Day, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!
How are you doing, Sven? I know it isn’t easy waiting for the axe to fall.

Lawlessness is Constitutional.

I keep reading comments from people on the Left that “it’s not un-Constitutional until the SCOTUS says it is.” That’s the same “living constitution” nonsense that got us where we are today -- the idea that there are no objective rights and wrongs, only the ever-changing opinions of men and society.

Hai, Paddy!

The U.S. Patent Office has now been weaponized:

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, calling the football team’s name “disparaging to Native Americans.”

They can still use the name, but have no recourse re trademark violations.

You know, ‘cuz there’s nothing better to do.

At least my buddy Bob and I are trying to figure odds on a replay of the Fall of Saigon (except in Baghdad), whether Iraq will go pre-Churchill’s doodles, or some solution in between.
No wonder all the shows I DVR are the off-the-grid ones…it’s pure escapism. But, you know, “The Hunt” is narrated by Metallica’s James Hetfield so I’m keeping my head-banger roots…
😉

Speaking of my buddy Bob, we both have a need for a polite, non-career-limiting way of saying, “Your poor planning and lack of education and understanding do NOT equal my fvcking emergency.”
Any ideas?

Yeah, there’s really no way to do that…

Anyone seen our dear Rabeet?

Nah … I don’t think so.

Thanks for asking, Mac.
Mr. X is doing well -- he’s been playing with the tractor a lot while a couple of jobs catch up to him.
Me? Some days are better than others, and some have actually been really good.
Hopefully (::fingers crossed::) I’m getting near SOME diagnostic resolution with my back issues.
I hope.

Nice to see you, X, and happy that Mr. X is doing well. Your slogan reminded me of a sign on a buyer’s wall many years ago: “A f*ckup on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.”

Still swinging in the breeze, Paddy, but they fired another guy in our group yesterday. I heard two radically different versions of what happened: the official mgmt version and a brief conversation with the guy as he was driving off. Hmmmmm. Which one to believe?

I was reasonably certain that I was on a short list due to my attitude and budget cuts anyhow, and an incident that I was involved in last Friday didnt help. I was bummed over the weekend with my actions Friday, but am now at peace with things: I did all I could there the last year considering the constraints and lack of mgmt support that I received.

So it goes. I’ve taken all the files I needed, cleared out most of my belongings, tidied things up, and will update the resume this weekend.
