Can You Tell Which One Of These Drives Is Hand Shoveled & Which Ones Belong To Snowblower Owners?

by Anura Guruge

Yes, I know it is a bit hard for the uninitiated. But, this was today, just after 11am.

Last night’s snow storm. Wasn’t too bad. 2-hour school delay.

So, have you worked out which is which?

These are adjacent drives, i.e., next door or across the road.

Well, I am sure some of you will work it out.

Is It ‘OK’ For Native Americans To Do ‘Black Face’?

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

I have during my numerous trips to Arizona, spanning four decades, picked up numerous items of Native American art. I happened to notice this one today. I will have to go check if it has a label. cannot remember where or when I got it. Just know I have had it for a long time.

I also just noticed, BLACK FACE!

On the figure on the right it is unmistakable. He has a brown body — not dissimilar to mine.

So, when did Native Americans start doing Black Face? Were they doing it before they ever so an African? I don’t know.

But, what are the implications.

Should the Native Americans, collectively, apologize to the Black Americans for this? I don’t know.

Has Anybody Seen Rudy Giuliani Of Late?

by Anura Guruge

Just occurred to me while watching TV tonight, and hearing the the Robert Mueller investigation might finally be coming to an end, that I have NOT seen Rudy on TV in quite a few days.

Maybe weeks. Yes, I watch enough cable news, morning, noon and night that I usually catch most appearances to the Rudy.

Has Drump dumped him?

Has he had another health relapse?

I know that he hasn’t been doing the media rounds for at least a couple of weeks. I am NOT complaining. He drives me nuts. Just wanted to share an observation in case you had not noticed it. But, don’t lose any sleep over it. Be thankful, very thankful.

Does Pope Francis Have Dark Secret Of His OWN When It Comes To Sex Crimes?

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. From the U.K. “The Guardian”. Google for more.

The pope doth protest too much, methinks.

He is beginning to act & sound like a man who has a dark secret to hide.

He is very much like Trump and the Robert Muller special investigation.

Francis repeatedly attacks those like us who are genuinely upset about all of the sex abuse that has gone on and continues to go in in the Catholic Church by clergy that is supposed to have a duty to protect the young and the innocent if nobody else.

He is an hypocrite and a shallow man. I am getting increasingly convinced that he has a very dark, sinister past.

There is no vetting to be pope. Plus as we know the prelates protect each other. So, if Francis has a dark past he has a good chance of being able to keep it hidden because like Trump he has most of the prelates intimidated.

So, I ask out LOUD: why doth Francis protest so much? What does he have to hide?

Had No Idea That Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Is Only 32-Years Old.

by Anura Guruge

Click image for the ‘ABC News’ original. Google for more.

I kind of vaguely remember hearing that a nationalistic, right-winger had been elected as the Austrian chancellor. But, I didn’t give it much heed. I was too busy worrying about nationalistic, right-winger closer to home. And today they were together, side-by-side at the White House. That is why I got a good look at him. Plus the Drump did mention that ‘he’, i.e., Sebastian, looked young and indeed was young.

Wow. 32-years old. Must have been close to 30 when he was elected. Europe’s youngest head of state.

As I suspected (& hoped) Wikipedia does have a list of ‘youngest heads of state‘ ALBEIT only since 1945. But, at least it gives you some perspective. So, Sebastian is NOT the youngest by a long chalk. Maybe one of the youngest to be genuinely elected.
