The Last Post

So, I'm completely broke, and without a place to live, making this probably "it" for a while. I've finally been shit out by this NewAge society and culture that (quite obviously) never wanted the likes of me around, anyway, so I'm gonna now be forced to focus on how I'm going to survive from where it's wanted me all along: post-America's streets. 


Let's hope I don't kill anybody.


Being A Damn Fool Pays Well (I've Been Told)

Meet the typical Whole Foods shopper, a highly educated West Coast millennial woman earning $80,000 who the media still calls "highly educated" when, they know, she can be usually be found wandering the Snake Oil Aisle at America’s Temple of Pseudoscience. Flattery gets them everywhere.

Because they're already well-indoctrinated NewAge cult members, unable to tell "up" from "down" or "right" from "wrong" - as they're sabotaging our very existence - whether they'd like to admit it or not.

Crack To Edzard Ernst: There's No Blacks There (Message Received, Asshole)

From Professor Ernst's opening line ("oh dear, who writes such a drivel?") anyone can see how my criticisms of others are received: not as something serious to be debated, but from a perch of superiority they assume they lord over me. I write "drivel" - just not drivel this politically partisan dumbshit can refute. Nor will he. Ever.

I did nothing to be treated like this, by this weird and cranky old man. I merely said he was wrong. He is supposed to be a Scientist, and a man of letters. Instead, he acts like a fucking child. And his followers are equally frivolous, bitching about how I talk, to escape debating the points I make. I actually admired this crew. Skeptics. No more.

 Now, I shit on the lot of them, and am sorry I ever engaged them. Good job, "spreading Science", Assholes.

Not In A Good Way (Not Good At All)

After a Scientific Study Shows Yoga and Meditation Can Inflate Your Ego (and Not in a Good Way) I can imagine a NewAger bragging about How I Responded When My Yoga Studio Reinstituted a Mask Mandate (and it was Not in a Good Way): Not good at all.

The Dividing Line (Is A "T")

Trump may be fading away, but Trumpism is now in the American bloodstream OR a lot of left-leaning cable-TV-watching Americans just couldn't believe how badly they'd misread the nation, and, only now, are finally coming to terms with it - but still can't really admit it. And are determined to make the rest of us suffer for it

We live in amazing times.

Seen (I'll Speak)

The Celebrity World's Fine (Things Are Going To Hell Because I'M Fucked-Up)

According to the National Library of Medicine, Anti-vaccination and pro-CAM attitudes both reflect magical beliefs about health, but, still, no one thinks of NewAge as a negative - though it encompasses all of them and more!

Cry (Bitch)


Clint's still trying to work his legacy out - in a way that'll satisfy Hollywood.

Money Talks (Not You)

Cancel Culture can be brutal for those who lack the money, and societal clout, to fight back. Try taking a stand,...Chances are you’ll soon be skimming LinkedIn for job openings. It’s why so many people go along,...To do anything else puts their livelihoods at risk.” 

This writer doesn't know the half. I've had some of the most crazy, and even violent reprisals, ever imagined, happen to me - from friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, and others. NewAge is - literally - everywhere, and they've been unrelenting since 2005. And I am ALWAYS a target.


Aren't Cult Leaders "Extreme" (Even Now)?

I see a MAJOR flaw in that.

Double (Standards Are Reserved - For Those Exhibiting No Standards At All)

USA TODAY is talking about Chris Cuomo's ethical failure: Why CNN anchor's actions hurt journalists across America, when they HAD TO KNOW Cuomo's wife runs a misinformation business. Why didn't THAT "hurt journalists across America"? Have they all seen it, and just accepted it - and said nothing? Thousands of them? A news anchor - who's wife runs a misinformation BUSINESS - isn't a news story? Since when? Since the NewAge.
The NewAge is The Democrats' new cult of the popular - not the serious. Total hypocrites are welcome - totally welcome - as long as they're down with The 'disinformation' deception.
The 'disinformation' deception turns Democrat party rapists, like Bill Clinton, into national heroes, while causing idiots to still make Bill Cosby jokes.
Yes, If Cuomo had any self-respect, he’d resign, but that's true of all of 'em - and that goes *double* for Oprah.

This Man Was Held For Three Years (Because America Loves Facts So Much)

“The more Mr. Spriestersbach (on the left) vocalized his innocence by asserting that he is not Mr. Castleberry (on the right) the more he was declared delusional and psychotic by the H.S.H. staff and doctors and heavily medicated. It was understandable that Mr. Spriestersbach was in an agitated state when he was being wrongfully incarcerated for Mr. Castleberry’s crime and despite his continual denial of being Mr. Castleberry and providing all of his relevant identification and places where he was located during Mr. Castleberry’s court appearances, no one would believe him or take any meaningful steps to verify his identity and determine that what Mr. Spriestersbach was telling the truth – he was not Mr. Castleberry.”

Oprah's Best Friend Is Gayle King At CBS News (Which Doesn't Effect Anything)

Then everything starts to make more sense.

It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over (Even When It's Over For You)

It would be so nice to have leaders who weren't compelled to say stupid shit: poor ol' Jeb! looked at America's being #2 in the Gold medal count, and #1 in the Olympic medal count, overall, and decided that wasn't good enough - we should now be looking at total world domination

If only HE had been President instead of Donald Trump

Please clap.

Sigh (Psychics)

Kamala Harris Knows She’s Trapped - it's too bad, the public didn't, before they voted her dumb ass into office. 

I mean, it's not like there weren't major red flags out there,...

The Tattoos Were A Dead Give-Away: Way Too Impulsive (And Not That Bright)

The Crack Emcee: I ain't partied with nobody, and ain't got shit - so who's the winner of The Common Sense Sweepstakes?

Hit me up on Venmo:

The American Nightmare (We See it All Too Clearly While The Rest See Nothing)

"The problem is that, at least for those of us who remember when the entire Southern delegation to Congress were staunch segregationists and Southern sheriffs routinely used the n word in public, they are actually demonstrating how little overt racism there is today." 

 The same people who refuse to pay reparations for the centuries of racism they admit they remember - and know black Americans do - now can't stop trying to use our successes, against us, as weapons. (And, of course, if there ain't no "overt" racism there's nothing to talk about, right?) They're hilariously racist.

Life As A Joke (These Are Jokes)

Both are true - and it's funny.

The Dead Do Not Speak (Or The Funny People Will Always Make A Joke About It)

The anti-vaxxers making the best case for the Covid shot were ALWAYS Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, back when Oprah Winfrey first let them spout that nonsense on national television (I, for one, knew two comedians, who had recently joined the NewAge Movement, didn't know more than Doctors. I appeared to be mostly alone, back then. I appear to be mostly alone, in that, still). 

Carrey and McCarthy should, at the very least, be tortured over the Hell they've unleashed - and journalism should be apologizing for Oprah's role in it - but, instead, everybody's fine. Just fine and dandy.

And that's modern journalism for you.

To Democrats Women Are Warm Rags (Powerful Men Wipe Up With When Done)

He's in the party that's, historically, "open-minded" about these kinds of things.

The Science World Online Is Full Of Intellectual Cowards (Yes, "Orac" Included)

"Why are the editors at Science-Based Medicine steadfastly refusing to engage? Why is David Gorski (AKA Orac, above) using a blocking tool on anyone who broaches the subject (and all those who ‘like’ such challenges)? 

We may never know as the blog posts are bluffing out the false view that this is settled. People who raise this are blocked. This is the antithesis of science-based medicine. No clinical question should be off-limits. No evaluation of risks should be brushed aside. No acceptance of a treatment can be made without it being in the context of science, evidence and medical ethics. 

However this now unfolds, this is becoming a very damaging event for, not just the SBM blog, but for the very fight that it is right to insist medicine happens within a rational and scientific framework, where free discussion of evidence and its meaning can take place." 

 - From The Decline and Fall of Science-based Medicine by Andy Lewis, The Quackometer Blog 

Needless to say, this has been TMR's experience with the "online Science community" almost from the start: with few exceptions (PandaBear MD being the most notable) all of the Doctors online block serious challengers to their worldview. It's intellectual cowardice at it's best - and not just that they do it, but the way they apply it: it's not for being wrong, but for merely OPPOSING them. They're too used to people sucking their dicks. Meanwhile, SCAM, scammers, Oprah and cults get bigger and stronger on their watch - as the rest of us are consigned to watching it happen - because we can never get their support.

Edzard Ernst Is Always On The Wrong Side Of U.S. Politics (So He's A Bullshitter)

"Our results suggest that belief in fake news may be driven, to some extent, by a general tendency to be overly accepting of weak claims. This tendency, which we refer to as reflexive open-mindedness, may be partly responsible for the prevalence of epistemically suspect beliefs writ large." 

 - from recent research papers on the prevalence of bullshit, and the book, On Bullshit, by Harry G. Frankfurt

FACT: This is NOT a man suffering from "reflexive open-mindedness".

FACT: This man has - which is why he was gullible enough to unleash SCAM (so-called alternative medicines) on the world.

FACT: Oprah has - which is why she spreads misinformation (including about SCAM) as a career.

I just took this photo of my personal copy of "On Bullshit" - in front of the 2020 Olympics - so you know I'm not bullshittin': it's my Bible. I've always had it nearby since 2005.
That Edzrd Ernst just discovered it - after he's been siding with Oprah and the Clintons, and the rest of the U.S. SCAM lobby - is embarrassing for him: it means Ernst has been railing against President Trump - in defense of America's true bullshitters - without ever researching who America's true bullshitters are.
It's little wonder he's been siding, politically, with Richard Dawkins' "Enemies of Reason" the whole time.
