“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying the cross.” (Sinclair Lewis, It Can’t Happen Here)
Man did he get that wrong. When it finally arrived, it was wearing a white lab coat.
Another thought (my second of the day – I’ve been spray painting with oil-based stain, and cannot bring myself to wear a mask – obvious brain damage). It is this: Bill Gates* reminds me of anyone, it is Prince Charles, over-priveleged, over-educated, imagining himself worthy of the wealth that he came into by sliding down the right birth canal.
Useless eaters, they are, but their families gotta do something with them. Charles and Bill are dangerous clowns. I think it safe to say they are not trusted with real power, but are merely used as public faces, sock puppets.
*Mea culpa … I had forgotten. Gates is a college dropout, but we are told that he is a genius, and that it is not unusual for such people to be unable to do well in a formal education setting. Sometimes true, but I think in his case, maybe just a dunce.
