CAPTIONING THIS DAY OF THE DOLPHIN AD

I've had days like that. One time I unwittingly trained a dolphin to kill the president of the Teamsters Union. I had a hell of a time hiding Hoffa's body. "Thanks for all the fish" my ass!

I’ve had days like that. One time I unwittingly trained a dolphin to kill the president of the Teamsters Union. I had a hell of a time hiding Hoffa’s body. “Thanks for all the fish” my ass!

IF YOU PREFER YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CAPTIONS INSTEAD:

A) Personally, I’ve always subscribed to the “Second Dolphin” theory myself. Continue reading

I GO POGO (1980) ELECTION DAY FLUFF

i go pogoI GO POGO (1980) – A possum for president? This stop-motion animation rendition of Walt Kelly’s iconic comic strip Pogo is, sad to say, even more aimless and unentertaining than the 1969 conventional animation show The Pogo Special Birthday Special. That IS the actual title, by the way. The approach to that half-hour cartoon special was, as the title indicates, so cloyingly cutesy that even Walt Kelly himself disliked it. 

Walt Kelly passed away in 1973 so at least he didn’t have to see this second travesty of his brilliant series. Pogo (1948-1975) featured cartoon animals who lived in the Okefenokee Swamp and were as cute and memorable as anything that Disney or Hanna-Barbera ever produced. Like the much later children’s franchise The Muppets, Pogo appealed to adults as well as children, and even sprinkled in a fair amount of political and social commentary.

pogoKelly was a master of making his political allegories blend so seamlessly into the tales of his cartoon animals that the deeper meaning would go over children’s heads as they enjoyed the antics of the Okefenokee Swamp’s denizens. For a comparison, think of how Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels was a very biting satire but the story outline is so perfect it survived as a children’s tale long after the political and social topics that Swift was writing about faded into history.

And though each side of the American political aisle tries to claim Walt Kelly as their own he was actually my kind of guy and took shots at BOTH SIDES. The political left could point to the way that Kelly’s 1950s cat character Simple J. Malarkey was an unflattering caricature of Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy, but the right could point to Walt’s cowbird characters who embodied pretentious, parasitic communist activists.   

pogo merchBlame the 1969 television special and this 1980 bomb for helping to consign these brilliant cartoon figures to oblivion, even though they once rivaled the Disney Empire in merchandising. Peanuts and Winnie the Pooh had nothing on Pogo and company. Continue reading

BIDEN IS NOT FIT TO DECIDE WHO IS OR IS NOT “PRO-AMERICAN”

biden not blinkingIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog will once again jump in on this topic. Just as it’s repulsive when Republican presidents try to define what does or does not make someone “pro-American” it’s every bit as nauseating when a Democrat president does it. Even more pathetic is the way that senile yet corrupt Joe Biden tried to tie it in with the mass-trespassing incident which Democrat party demagogues pretend was an “insurrection.” LMAO!

Tiny hands Joe Biden

Corrupt, senile, tiny-handed Joe Biden

At any rate, to use unblinking, vacant-stared career criminal Joe Biden’s own wording against him, here we go:

YOU CAN’T BE IN THE POCKET OF THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT AND PRO-AMERICAN.

YOU CAN’T BE HIDING IF UNDERBOSS HUNTER BIDEN HAS YET DIVESTED HIS STAKES IN CHINESE FIRMS AND PRO-AMERICAN.

YOU CAN’T BE HAVING YOUR CORRUPT DOJ HIDING EVIDENCE ABOUT YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS’ SCHEMES & SCAMS AND BE PRO-AMERICAN.

YOU CAN’T BE PRO-CHEAT-BY-MAIL AND PRO-AMERICAN.

biden the fascistYOU CAN’T BE CALLOUS ABOUT THE SUFFERING YOUR POLICIES HAVE INFLICTED ON THE WORKING CLASS AND THE POOR AND BE PRO-AMERICAN.

YOU CAN’T KEEP POLITICAL PRISONERS IN WASHINGTON DC JAILS FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF WITH NO TRIAL AND BE PRO-AMERICAN.

JOE BIDEN IS AS DEMENTED AS KING GEORGE III WAS CRAZY

POLITICAL CARTOON ROUNDUP: JUNE 27th

Biden sick and tiredIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog takes another look at recent political cartoons, many of them about career criminal Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family. 

Stop Democrat ViolenceUp first below is yet another reminder about how illegitimate the Democrats’ absurd January 6th Committee is, with Democrat violence once again sweeping the nation and with Democrats calling for the violent deaths of government figures.

Next is a clever look at the way that the installed career criminal Joe Biden’s Regime has destroyed the country.

DEMOCRATS STILL HOSTILE TO THE WORKING CLASS AND THE POOR

democrat platform hatredHere at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve long pointed out that one of the many things that drove so many like me away from the Democrats is the way that financially comfortable Democrats are every bit as callous and uncaring toward the working class and the poor as the richest snobs ever were.

Democrat court jester Stephen Colbert aka “Joe Biden’s C*ck-Holster” recently expressed The Party’s pompous disdain for the rest of us. Colbert said he’s “willing to pay more for gas because that’s the cost of a clean conscience. Also, he’ll “pay $15/gallon because he owns a Tesla.” Got it, peasants?

democrat snob

Democrat snob

The Democrats’ attitude is still “Screw you people for not being one percenters like us media cheerleaders for The Party!” Unfeeling pigs like Colbert don’t care how much you’re already suffering because of Joe Biden’s inflation and his other disastrous policies. Many of them also adhere to The Party snobbery which dictates that if you don’t like how much you have to pay for gas, just buy an electric vehicle.

To raise an old question, I’d like to ask Democrats “What is it about working men and women that you find so offensive?”

Anyway, all of this reminded me of the way American “comedians” are no longer irreverent or daring. Instead of the old saying about bold comedians being willing to “Insult a king to make a beggar laugh,” gutless snobs like Colbert prefer to “Insult beggars to make kings laugh.”

POLITICAL CARTOON ROUNDUP: MARCH 6th

democrat republican otherIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog takes a look at some recent political cartoons and the failures of elected Democrats and Republicans. (Plus, how about Joe Biden’s latest senile gibberish. He actually said “How did we get to the place where, you know, Putin decides he’s gonna just invade Russia?”)

We start out with the item below ridiculing Joe Biden’s idiotic lie about outfighting a street hood called Corn Pop. This Tall Tale/ outrageous fabrication was always kicked off by Biden’s inane remark “Corn Pop was a bad dude …” The “bad dude” wording is typical of the way privileged white one percenter career criminals like Joe Biden feel they need to talk down to voters of color through embarrassing attempts at sounding “ghetto.”

This next one is a reminder of Joe Biden’s reputation for corruption and for getting “ten percent for the Big Guy” kicked up to him by other members of the Biden Crime Family, like his Underboss son Hunter Biden.  Continue reading

A SHOGGOTH ON THE ROOF (2000)

mockumentary shoggoth on the roofA SHOGGOTH ON THE ROOF (2000) – This comedic short film is a 19 1/2-minute mock documentary from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. It was a very early effort to mimic the Found Footage approach of the previous year’s Blair Witch Project and centered around a fictional musical parody of Fiddler on the Roof using Shoggoth monsters plus other characters and situations from H.P. Lovecraft’s horror tales.

shoggoth setThe tongue in cheek story began with found film footage of what appeared to be stage rehearsals for the nonexistent musical A Shoggoth on the Roof. A tape of that footage was received by members of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, who then set out to investigate its bona fides while filming their own efforts in mock documentary style.

As the short movie rolls along, it becomes clear that something horrific happened to shut down the Other Gods Theater’s 1979 attempt at staging the musical before it could even debut. Finding the survivors of that ill-fated production proves difficult and getting them to talk proves even harder. Continue reading

MOTHER JONES WITH A NEWS ROUNDUP

canadian truckersIndependent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog presents another item from Mary Harris Jones, better known as “Mother” Jones. This pioneering lady stays in touch with Balladeer’s Blog despite having passed away long ago. Now THAT’S dedication.

mother-jonesMOTHER JONES: Thank you, Balladeer. I want to jump in with some of the latest dispatches from the Biden Regime’s war on the rest of us, a war they wage alongside complicit Republican office-holders like Cocaine Mitch McConnell.

BIDEN FAMILY CALLED OUT AS A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE AS DEFINED BY THE RICO ACT. They’re not called the Biden Crime Family for nothing!

FASCIST BIDEN REGIME CAUGHT USING THEIR POLITICIZED DOJ TO INTERCEPT MAIL SENT BY CONSTITUENTS TO THEIR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES. Gestapo tactics like this are to be expected from a regime that falsely labels critics as “domestic terrorists” and protesters as “insurrectionists” despite none of the January 6th political prisoners having been charged with insurrection MORE THAN ONE YEAR LATER.

UNDER BIDEN CONSUMER PRICES HIT FOUR-DECADE HIGH. Bidenflation is part of his regime’s war on the working class and the poor. More HERE.
