ROLLING BACK TIME. IT’S 1937 AND YOU ARE READING THE AMERICAN MERCURY

Even in his day, this guy was very controversial.  Some folks are still upset and they aren’t even of that generation.

Well what the heck.  Truth to tell you, I just could not wait for July 4 or some other meaningful holiday. Or another election.

Welcome to the world of H.L. Mencken, 1937.

A Constitution for the New Deal

by H.L. Mencken

The American Mercury, June 1937

THE PRINCIPLE
cause of the uproar in Washington is a conflict between the swift-moving idealism of the New Deal and the unyielding hunkerousness of the Constitution of 1788. What is needed, obviously, is a wholly new Constitution, drawn up with enough boldness and imagination to cover the whole program of the More Abundant Life, now and hereafter.
That is what I presume to offer here. The Constitution that follows is not my invention, and in more than one detail I have unhappy doubts of its wisdom. But I believe that it sets forth with reasonable accuracy the plan of government that the More Abundant Life wizards have sought to substitute for the plan of the Fathers. They have themselves argued at one time or another, by word or deed, for everything contained herein:

PREAMBLE

We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish social justice, draw the fangs of privilege, effect the redistribution of property, remove the burden of liberty from ourselves and our posterity, and insure the continuance of the New Deal, do ordain and establish this Constitution.

ARTICLE I

The Executive
All governmental power of whatever sort shall be vested in a President of the United States. He shall hold office during a series of terms of four years each, and shall take the following oath: “I do solemnly swear that I will (in so far as I deem it feasible and convenient) faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will (to the best of my recollection and in the light of experiment and second thought) carry out the pledges made by me during my campaign for election (or such of them as I may select).”

The President shall be commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy, and of the militia, Boy Scouts, C.I.O., People’s Front, and other armed forces of the nation.
The President shall have the power: To lay and collect taxes, and to expend the income of the United States in such manner as he may deem to be to their or his advantage;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States, and to provide for its repayment on such terms as he may fix;
To regulate all commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and within them; to license all persons engaged or proposing to engage in business; to regulate their affairs; to limit their profits by proclamation from time to time; and to fix wages, prices and hours of work;

To coin money, regulate the content and value thereof, and of foreign coin, and to amend or repudiate any contract requiring the payment by the United States, or by any private person, of coin of a given weight or fineness;

To repeal or amend, in his discretion, any so-called natural law, including Gresham’s Law, the law of diminishing returns, and the law of gravitation.
The President shall be assisted by a Cabinet of eight or more persons, whose duties shall be to make speeches whenever so instructed and to expend the public funds in such manner as to guarantee the President’s continuance in office.

The President may establish such executive agencies as he deems necessary, and clothe them with such powers as he sees fit. No person shall be a member to any such bureau who has had any practical experience of the matters he is appointed to deal with.

One of the members of the Cabinet shall be an Attorney General. It shall be his duty to provide legal opinions certifying to the constitutionality of all measures undertaken by the President, and to gather evidence of the senility of judges.

garage rage

A neat little story over at American Thinker about what goes on in the mind of a guy suffering from something like road rage.

Just remember, guns and car repairs don’t mix.

But I do understand his feelings. To the letter. Heck I caught a taste of them last night. But just a taste. And no firearms were involved.

family dinner

When we were little kids, I always used to try to tell my brother jokes or snappy one liners when he had something in his mouth. Nothing beat cracking him up and watching the milk or toothpaste come shooting out his nose. It was the ultimate brother score.

So I’m up here visiting him and mom for a couple days, doing some heavy lifting tasks neither can do anymore. Today, after a 3 day heat spell, I put the air conditioners in the windows. So naturally it’s getting cold, and we’ll have to use blankets tonight. Tomorrow I get to help rearrange the bushes out in the yard, digging holes for plants and stuff. And carrying boxes of junk out to the garage from the basement. Oh fun!

But tonight we had a nice family dinner, just the three of us. Mom had a frozen kosher chicken, the nice natural kind that isn’t all fat and pumped up flesh. We thawed it out and roasted it with some onions and herbs, and it came out great. I was even Mr. Helpful and made up a nice gravy.

So I get to carve the chicken. Mom wants a drumstick, so I cut one off for her. Cut her a thigh too. Might as well trim the other one while I’m at it. Cut the wings off, one for me, one for the bro. One on each plate. She ladles a scant spoon of green beans onto the plate and takes it out to him. “Here, for your diet.” “Awwww Moooom, can’t I have any meat??” She’s just busting on him, so I get the plate back and go to carve some breast meat. Knife goes down through the skin, and hits breast bone. WTH? Try it again. Skin, bone. This funky chicken has all the breast meat on the side, and almost none up on the bone. So I hacked it off, served him up a plateful, brought it out, and he starts eating. About half a mouthful into it, I tell him that I named the chicken Miley Cyrus. I get a look. I say because it didn’t have much of anything up front, but still managed to show some side boob.

And I almost got him. Another couple of chews and it would have been gravy spew.  I was this close.

My mother comes to the table. “What’s so funny?”

“Andrew named the chicken Miley Cyrus.”

“Who is Malice Iris?” she asks.

And it was gravy time.

Family. Ain’t they great?

too funny

1988 Olympic Decathlon Gold Medal Winner Bruce Jenner, working towards gender realignment, the guy the LGBTXYZ crowd had hoped to make their ultimate poster child.

He gave a big interview to Diane Sawyer. And he came out.

As a REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN.

“Of course I’m a Republican”, Bruce told her, “I believe in the Constitution.”

Diane physically recoiled to that remark. And the left instantly lost their proto-hero. Now they have to figure out how to hate on him without touching the trip wires. Hey I know, he must be rayciss ... after supporting every one of his natural and adoptive daughters going over to black guys.  D’oh!!!

A bit more at Weasel Zippers.

And isn’t the implication of the inverse of his statement just wonderful?

Asking for your Help:

I have the distinguished honor of being on the Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton. 

We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore, until we discovered there was not enough room for two more faces.

We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed.  It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside her husband William J. Clinton, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference.

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Democrat of them all.  He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was.  He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else’s money.

Thank you,
Hillary R. Clinton Monument Committee

p.s. The Committee has raised $0.16 as of this date.

Your Morning Bit Of Strange Internet, Food Edition

Diet Rice!

Oh boy, cut calories! Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to the water for every half cup of rice you boil. When it’s cooked, cool it overnight in the fridge, then reheat. It’s not magic, it’s Science In Action! and the chemistry involved can cut starch calories by 60%. No kidding.

Rice contains two types of starch: digestible and indigestible. The small intestine can’t break down the latter, which means the body can’t absorb the carbohydrates and sugars that come from it.

To convert digestible starch to indigestible, the researchers added two key steps to the process of cooking rice. First they put a teaspoon of coconut oil into boiling water before adding a half a cup of rice. The oil, the researchers explain, enters the starch granules in the rice, changing their structure to be resistant to the enzymes that would normally break down the starch during digestion.

Secondly, after the rice was done cooking, the researchers refrigerated it for 12 hours. This part is essential, the scientists say, because the cooling process expels the digestible part of the starch; once outside the rice granules, the molecules form strong bonds, turning them into indigestible starch. The amount of indigestible starch didn’t change when the rice was later reheated.




Shoppers Beware!!

Seriously? That’s even a thing?? yurk.

Crass Humor, Cider House Rules Edition

Builders are busy building three new condo/apartment buildings down at the end of our village street. They’ve been plugging away at it all winter, and now have progressed to the plumbing and wiring stage.


I drove by just now and noticed that the electric work is being done by D & C Electric. And I thought the wiring in our condo was an abortion!





Goodnight you princes of Maine, you kings of New England.
