some of my recent favorites
Howdy subscribers and other internet wanderers who’ve fortuitously stumbled onto my stack. It’s meme time again.
Today I double post. I did not advertise the other post with an email so if you missed it and are interested in a quick, 13-minute, 2nd interview with professor Drake, YNP10 style, where Drake critiques some of the popular historians who’ve influenced my historical awareness, click here.
Today’s first meme jumped out at me because in my long interview with the professor, I made a point that I thought too many people judge current foreign policy and wars based on their fondness for the man in the White House. Dr. Drake said he thought there was some truth to that but there were other more compelling reasons why people fail to oppose our unnecessary imperial adventures. We could both be right here, but this meme made me think of our discussion:
Most of the following memes come from the OffGuardian. Do check their meme archive if you need a laugh (or a cry). And remember that the memes continue in their comment section.

Remember the double-standard on gatherings/protests during Peak Covid?
Who you gonna vote for in ‘24?
Did you hear that Lia Thomas, America’s greatest women’s swimmer of all time, wants to transition back to male? Yesterday at the supermarket I wondered when Dylan Mulvaney would check his fat bank account and do the same. By the way, insider tip to Bitterroot Valley neighbors: There’s a sale on all varieties of Bud Light.
Speaking of ‘24, I’ve been thinking about the significance of the RFK jr’s presidential run. This could be yuuge. At the same time, I can’t shake the feeling that all of them are compromised and at the national level at least, aint nothin’ gonna change.
Once I asked my dentist in Japan, “Do they put fluoride in the water here?”
His expression said, “Why on earth would we do that?”
Driving through the valley the other day, I tuned into the local, ‘conservative’ radio station and Hannity had Mike Pompeo on. They were saber rattling against Russia. Now that Tucker is gone, can we expect FOX to cave in on more official narratives?
