Republicans Being Called the Stupid Party

It keeps getting dumb and dumber as Republicans continue to embrace the anti-intellectual label, and some Republicans are saying that their party will pay price for the stupid approach they have taken toward handling the pandemic.  Don’t even get me started on the Trump supporters that believe in QAnon.

Steve Jobs Recreational Drugs Back in the Day

“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin, and you can’t remember it when it wears off, but you know it. It reinforced my sense of what was important creating great things instead of making money, putting things back into the stream of history and of human consciousness as much as I could.”

Beat Poets

Neal Cassady said, “We are actually fourth dimensional beings in a third dimensional body inhabiting a second dimensional world!”  This may not make sense to a lot of people, because most people saw Neal as a real space cadet.  Longitude and latitude give you your position on Earth and this accounts for the two-dimensional world.  People are solids, so we are three-dimensional beings having length, width, and height, but since Earth is moving through space you need to bring in the fourth dimension of spacetime before you can pinpoint an object by knowing where it is at a certain time.  When the American poet Diane Di Prima heard Neal say this, she responded with, “And the clay began to talk and became human – one part man one part woman.”

Holts Knows What is Wrong

Lou Holts trusts Trump and when he spoke during the Republican National Convention, he said that Biden is a Catholic in name only.  Questioning the sincerity of someone else’s’ faith is probably worse than saying that “When they stormed Normandy, they knew there were going to be casualties — there were going to be risks”, so the college football season should not be cancelled just because many students will get sick from the coronavirus.  I think with the ability that coach Holts has being able to know what is truly inside of someone’s heart, whether or not that information comes from QAnon puts him up on the same level as Santa Claus.
