Your Daily Ganjascope

Sagittarius (11/22 - 12/21): Your love of Calypso's Grape Fizz live resin carts conspire to produce a full-blown paradoxical reaction to life. Whenever you vape it up, dandruff shampoo turns you into a blizzard with feet. Cough medication makes you hack and sputter like a flooded outboard motor. Deodorant produces a rancid, road-kill aroma about your personal zones. I'd lay off the Beano, contraceptive devices, and hemorrhoid preparations if I were you. More Ganjascopes

You Can't Photoshop This image
Some photos cannot be shopped. They are perfect just the way god made them. Such perfection does not happen by accident, and wise, indeed, is the man who says "you can't photoshop this."

Michael Alcamo of NYC, You're an Asshat
Oct 8, 2020 - 8:18

WEST GOSHEN TWP, Pa.—The winner of next week's asshat award is Michael Alcamo of New York City. Michael...a bike-riding, virtue-signalling, girly a frequent visitor to the Adirondack mountains, 225 miles upwind of New York City, where he likes to ride his bikey through small villages and past cemeteries dotted with tiny American flags.

One day this summer Mike was riding along when he came to a hamlet in Clinton County, New York, and lost his shit.

“Suddenly I came to a town called Swastika, which is a symbol of the tyranny and hatred those soldiers [in the cemeteries] fought and died to fight."

A well-adjusted, non-self-loathing, non-guilt-tripping person of white would have thought, "Wow. Weird name for a town. Are we in Auschwitz county or what?"

Not Mikey. Oh no. Not a chance in hell. He's absorbed his Foucault. Every act is a political act. It's all about language and power...and making a scene...and the tail wagging the fucking dog. Those "little pink houses for you and me" are painted the correct color already.

So Mick dips into the liberal's ever-present bag of miseries and decides to see what power he might have to get this offensive language changed. It ain't his town; it ain't his business; there are plenty of other towns to ride through; it's been called Swastika for more than a century; people around there can read for Christ's sake; but when's that ever stopped a liberal from mounting a high horse or bicycle?

Consequently Mikey "reached out" to Clinton County in August to see if they would consider changing the unincorporated hamlet’s name. He was told to email the nearby town of Black Brook, which has jurisdiction over Swastika.

He did. Black Brook's four councilors met in September. They discussed the proposal for five minutes. They voted unanimously against it, graciously giving the half-ass notion four more minutes than it deserved.

“We regret that individuals, from out of the area, that lack the knowledge of the history of our community become offended when they see the name,” Black Brook supervisor Jon Douglass wrote in an email to an inquiry from the Seattle Times (who else?).

“To the members of our community, that the board represents, it is the name that their ancestors chose. Swastikas were used in numerous religions. Did the Hindus and [Buddhists] erase swastikas from their religious history because of the Germans?”

Fair point. The swastika symbol first appeared roughly seven thousand years ago and is considered sacred in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and other belief systems.

As for his belief system (Progressivus absurdicus), M told NPR (who else, again?): “I expected perhaps a commission would evaluate options and consider the opportunity to update the name to something less offensive and emblematic of tyranny. I didn’t expect a quick, unanimous vote to reject the proposal.”

Well, Mikey Mikester, everybody's got a plan until he gets punched in the mouth. As for that commission you were ejaculating over...ain't enough damn people in the area to form a decent-size commission with the requisite committees and subcommitees. Social distance up there is six yards. Social distance for your sorry ass ought to be at least one ZIP code. Reminds me of a line from Bob Dylan when he was still Bob Dylan: "If you're lookin' to get silly, you better go back to from where you came."
