American Gothic 2015

I have seen this recently on the Internet and wonder if the meme is true as reported. That KFC is test marketing a “Double Down Dog” in the Philippines of a hot dog wrapped in a fried chicken bun and covered with cheese. That the test marketing area sells out every day this test market food.

That there is so many things wrong with this on many levels to me in that hot dogs are mixed with fried chicken and covered (blessed?) with the American idea of cheese over everything. 

To a person like myself that must watch his diet for the sake of health, the youth that this fast food is targeted at is doing nothing but eating heart bombs in terms of future health issues – a Russian Roulette of sorts in dietary practices.

But then again in terms of curiosity and the sometimes lure of fun in gluttony, I would not mind test tasting this curious new food object.

So it goes.

Drone Attack on White House – Dry Run Test Successful??? Hold Anchovies

White House press secretary Josh Earnest tried to allay fears about the incident, saying that the device "does not pose any sort of ongoing threat to anybody at the White House." President Obama and the First Lady were in India during the incident, though it's not clear whether the rest of the family — Sasha, Malia, and their grandmother — were still indoors.

Saint-Gaudens Diana – Cultural Rape and Banking Sponsored Commodity Art At The Philadelphia Museum of Art

In line with the new Global Corporate Spreadsheet, formerly the Wharton Global Spreadsheet (local-USA), and the emerging global culture thing ongoing, I was taken aback when I learned that Bank of America came in and gilded the Statue of Diana at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

I called this “cultural rape” in comments on a the history blog below mainly because Diana in her salvaged state is the image I saw all my life from childhood onward and therefore it was imprinted on me as “questionable art” if not “decorative art” considering its varied history and usage in the past 125 years since its creation and or variation, adaption of creation by the famous gilded age sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens as a decorative weather vane on the second Madison Square Garden 1890-1925.

After some months, I stand by my decision that this is cultural rape by a commercial bank in a global cultural sense on the art museum in Philly - it is still an abomination. Piss on the commodity vision of art by capitalism.

...Been following the story of the Philly Diana for decades, being a native of Philly now living in Gotham for close to forty years. Ran into your original article recently about the – about to re-gild story while amateur researching some other forgotten items, lost architectural NYC treasures of that so-called gilded age.

Now in catching up on some modern things such as this recent unveiling of Diana Regilt at the PMA, the thought occurs to me that this is somehow cultural rape of a native Philly Icon. Coming from an old geezer, nobody will care what I think of all this. Considering that Philly bought her as scrap and for the price of scrap at thirty eight dollars, the true re-gilding I would think is in the revisionist art history of her.

I suppose it is only a matter of time before some other philanthropic or publicity starved banking interest puts arms back on the Venus de Milo in the Louvre and why not throw in a nose ring and tattoos while they are at it.

...She was art to me as a little boy over half a century ago with her mere green patina. My POV is that yes she had gilt on the top of MSGII but she was a mere replica of the original bronze piece on top of the too big and too heavy to be a weather vane statue that McKim Meade and White moved to their Agriculture Building at the Columbian Exposition and later lost in the fire of July 1894. The Philly Diana was art as she was salvaged and placed in her niche in the PMA just like the Venus de Milo in the Louvre.

Outsiders with money have now decided she wasn’t art unless gilt. Art and beauty are truly in the eyes of the beholder. Now she is too loud in her once quiet niche. “Look at Me!” Maybe a coat of Neon Green Paint to jazz up the natural stones of the PMA main staircase is needed as well.

Boehner Begins Sound of War Drums On Iran – Netanyahu to Address Captive Session of Republican Congress

House Speaker John Boehner invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress next month and discuss the threat from Iran.

"In this time of challenge, I am asking the Prime Minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life," Boehner said in a statement.

Netanyahu had accepted the invitation, an Israeli official said, adding that the prime minister was exploring the possibility of meeting with Obama during the visit.


Fox News Challenged To A Duel with The French – Mayor of Paris to Sue Over False News Reporting

The mayor of Paris has said she will sue Fox News for its inaccurate reporting about the city following the attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The US network claimed there were "no-go areas" in the French capital where police and non-Muslims refused to go.

Anne Hidalgo said the people of Paris had been "insulted" and the city's image had been "damaged".

The network has since apologised for making "regrettable errors" on air regarding the Muslim population.

Ms Hidalgo told CNN: "When we're insulted and when we've had an image, then I think we'll have to sue. I think we'll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed.

Unearthing America – One Shovel Full of Shit At A Time – History Channel

Cleopatra's Needle, Central Park NYC
(Public Domain)

Scott Wolter, the world’s leading “Forensic Geologist” is forever trying to figure out if it was a cat or a possum that shit on a rock in your backyard, is host of a History Channel entertainer “Unearthing America”.

Working from and or for an unseen POV – paranoid, white, Mormon-like, this clown has one of those background noise history programs that sees conspiracy and the Templars and the Masons behind every bush rock and tree in America. Kind of reminds me of my late grandma and her paranoia towards the “Commies” in better American days and being fronted by the, any unions.

Program last night was about Cleopatra’s giant granite Dildoe in back of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Granite involved here and so only a forensic geologist can say who or what for certain has taken a dump in the vicinity of obelisk for the last 3,000 years. It was stolen from Egypt in the nineteenth century btw.

Why is it there? How did it get there? What is the real reason for it being treated as ancient art and behind the MET and its nefarious and as yet undetermined hidden agenda of “Art” – (wink, nod).

Scott walks through Grand Central Terminal calling it a train “station” and then goes downtown to St.Paul’s Chapel and calls it a church. There is another secret in sight is the obelisk in plain sight in St. Paul’s graveyard, a tombstone, like Cleopatra’s Dildoe in Central Park. St. Paul’s is a chapel and attached theologically to the Trinity Church (Queen Anne Charter) a few blocks over on Wall Street.

Cleopatra’s Needle lines up with the Worth Obelisk at Madison Square and does not quite line up in a straight line with the obelisk gravestone at St. Paul’s Chapel downtown but this expert knows it all, yeah right, between any two separate points is a straight line. That imperfect line continues and does not as his expert prescribes point to the Statue of Liberty on an island in New York harbor but rather straight at Governor’s Island, the original settlement point of the Dutch in NYC.

Governor’s Island is the secret hiding place of the Ark of the Holy Grail, the wooden animal vessel that the Kristian god Yahweh Junior drank from at some supper party once upon a time btw. Don'r ya know yaor bib-L?

And as I suspect the subject of another history channel mystery/conspiracy.

This program “Unearthing America” along with “Ancient Aliens” is the most highly rated cable shows on the History Channel making it most likely to jack-off to while in your living room and in your underwear, from boredom or lack of concrete fact, while watching cable TV btw...

Christian Mullah Franklin Graham Has Fatwa Shit Fit Over Food Court Sharing At Duke University Chapel

The foreign exchange students at Duke, bringing in the big tuition bucks wanted to chant for a few minutes every Friday as a call to prayer to their third world god AllahNewKid(ontheblock).

Christian Mullah Franklin Graham defending Christian Sharia says NO. NO. NO.

As we all know, AllahNewKid is inferior to the Local North Carolina gods of Yahweh Senior and little but more famous Yahweh Junior.

In the interest of Graham-country keeping triple K rated North Carolina kristian sharia PURE with a white sheet on top - Christian Mullah Franklin Graham had a shit fit when Duke Univeristy tried this share time thing of the religious food court (Bread and Wine) rights to its empty full of cobwebs obsolete christian chapel.



Christian Mullah Franklin Graham issues Fatwa Against Atlanta Mayor

The reason for the fatwa against Mayor Kasim Reed- (What kinda non-white Christian name is Kasim btw)

Da Atlanta mayor fired the local fire chief for handing out Kelvin Cochran’s book on Christian Self-HateHelp to employees - Handed out unsolicited - read it or get fired bro?

Cochran came under scrutiny and derision in late November for comments he expressed in a book he published more than a year ago. Among the compilation of men's Bible studies in "Who Told You That You Are Naked?" he encourages sexual purity, naming homosexuality and lesbianism "forms of sexual perversion."

Fucking your christian female wife or raping her is holy, a christin virtue, and the other gay stuff puts you in hell don’t ya know.

MuLLah Graham is part of the life time meal ticket and free lunch chrisitian cult started by his TV evangelist dad Billy Graham.

Franklin Graham’s upcoming book btw is “Skinnydipping for Christ in the White House” recalling historic accounts of his dad Billy skinny dipping with LBJ in the White House Pool talking about what good shit the whole Vietnam thing was for big business. 

Being nekid is not a sin, it is a skin, if the secret service are watching your butt don’t ya know.

George Zimmerman Attacks Another Girlfriend with a Beer Bottle in Florida

Florida’s Male Right to Unlimited Domestic Abuse “Stand your Castle” is again being challenged in the courts there in Lake Mary, Domestic Violence capital of Florida. 

Media are claiming George Zimmerman attacked girlfriend number three or four recently with a wine bottle. We all know George is not a wine sort of person. Why the media has to dress up this pig with more lipstick one more time is beyond me.

…was arrested in Florida late Friday night on charges of aggravated assault with a weapon.

According to Seminole County booking documents, Zimmerman, 31, was arrested by the Lake Mary police and was booked at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility at 10:10 p.m.

Zimmerman posted bond and was released at 12:15 p.m. He has been ordered to surrender all firearms even though this incident didn't involve one, judge John Galluzzo said.

Galluzzo gave little information about the case, other than that it involved a wine bottle and allegedly happened at Zimmerman's house. He asked that Zimmerman pack up his girlfriend's belongings and give them to his lawyer.

Zimmerman is scheduled to appear back in court on Feb. 17.

Since his high-profile acquittal, Zimmerman has had three other encounters with the Lake Mary police.

Christie’s Dallas Trip a Bribe / Payback for Port Authority Contract Awarded to Cowboys Owner?

No "Shut Up and Sit Down!" to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his cozy little hook up with Port Authority Contract awarder Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Less than two years before Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones paid for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s tickets and travel to NFL games, government documents show Christie personally pushed the Port Authority to approve a lucrative contract for a firm part-owned by Jones. Christie nonetheless accepted the gifts from Jones, despite New Jersey ethics rules barring gifts to public officials from persons or entities that those officials “deal with, contact, or regulate in the course of official business.”

On March 19, 2013, Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a press release announcing their selection of Legends Hospitality LLC to operate the observation deck on the top floor of One World Trade Center. The next day, the Port Authority board -- which is appointed by Christie and Cuomo -- specifically cited the governors’ announcement in voting to approve the contract for the company, which is jointly owned by the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees and Checketts Partners Investment Fund.

The Port Authority press release announcing the vote quotes Dallas Cowboys executive Jerry Jones Jr. as saying: "We are humbled to have been chosen to operate the Observatory Deck."
