O, the Jocularity of Unintentional Self-Satire!

‘For just $58! AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ sweatshirts combine socialist slogans with a capitalist price tag’, 3 Dec, 2020, RT.com

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for her fiery invectives against the billionaire class. But it turns out that ‘AOC’ isn’t above a little capitalism of her own, selling ‘Tax The Rich’ sweatshirts online for a princely sum.

New York’s Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described “democratic socialist,” and probably the best known face of the Democratic Party’s progressive wing. She’s proposed hitting the wealthiest Americans with a whopping 70 percent* income tax to fund massive environmental and social spending, and led a campaign to drive Amazon from taking advantage of generous tax breaks to set up its second headquarters in the Big Apple.

Jeff Bezos’s leaked ‘Penis Selfies’ exposed (so to speak)


And it couldn’t have happened to a more worthy putz…er…peckerwood.  The wealthiest man in the world treats his wage slaves like…slaves, including surveilling them in the work place, including with wristbands that monitor their hand movements to speed up work in Amazon warehouses.  This story has many faces by now; here are a few.  Oh, but first: it may be that Bezos hasn’t disavowed the selfies, so he may not be ripe for what I’d advised Anthony Weiner back in the day, and that was to claim: “Hey, that’s  not my weiner; mine’s much bigger!

“Members of the House Judiciary Committee and other more liberal-minded lawmakers and congressional aides have been privately discussing the possibility of drafting articles that include obstruction of justice or other “high crimes” they believe are clearly outlined in special counsel Robert S.

Kremlin Sources Go Quiet Leaving CIA in the Dark About Putin’s Plans for Midterms

The title comes from another bit of satirical self-parody from the NYT.com, August 24; Alex Jones don’t got nothin’ on these dudes, Barnes and Rosenberg:

“WASHINGTON — In 2016, American intelligence agencies delivered urgent and explicit warnings about Russia’s intentions to try to tip the American presidential election — and a detailed assessment of the operation afterward — thanks in large part to informants close to President Vladimir V. Putin and in the Kremlin who provided crucial details.

…Trump’s poodle Emmanuel Macron is promising bans on Fake News during French elections, and is about to introduce legislation allowing emergency blocks and legal actions against Fake News websites.  The legislation would include increased transparency about sponsored content, including the financing; the amount of funding would be capped.
