Chicken Soup for the Brain Damaged Flu Ridden Soul

Your Blogmeister’s Secret Hideout

This flu seems to have eased up on me, for now.  I don’t think it’s done with me, quite yet.

I need some encouragement from my peanut gallery.  Yes, I’m asking people, most of whom I still don’t inherently remember, for this.  Alluding to my more chronic medical problem.

I really do have a lot of nerve, don’t I?

Anyway, get in the comment box.

I’m not exactly a motivational speaker…but it has been a most welcome surprise to have you return to the blogroll. Many blogs have come and gone from my bookmarked list, but Countenance, Sailer, VoxDay and Chateau Heartiste are my daily go to guys. Keep up the good work. “Who is wise?

Broken Eggs, but No Omelets

“I really do have a lot of nerve, don’t I?”

You sure do!

I can’t keep up!

When did this all began? It surely wasn’t with the Access Hollywood tape on October 5 (?), 2016.

In the largest sense, it goes back to Betty Friedan’s 1963 publication of The Feminine Mystique. Friedan was a Stalinist propagandist whom (according to Daniel Horowitz) the CPUSA refused entry, so she founded her own CPUSA spin-off.

In any event, there is clearly a Feminazi putsch underway. They are even telling white men Communists like Al Franken that their destruction is for the good of The Party, in order to make it easier to call for the resignations/ impeachments of Roy Moore and Donald Trump.

And this does what for the disenfranchised, disgraced, male Reds?

Reds like to say, “You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet,” but they’ve never been interested in making omelets—they just love “breaking eggs”!

I saw a couple of Feminazis on MSNBC tonight, on Chris Matthews’ show, Hardball. Susan Page of USA Today, and NY Cong. Kathleen Rice, both explicitly said this (about the need to rid the DPUSA of Franken, et al., in order to get rid of Moore and Trump) at the same time they emphasized that this made the DPUSA morally superior to the GOP. Rice had the gall to call the GOP “cynical”!

At the end of the 5 P.M. hour, a white feminazi I was unfamiliar with, a “Nina” or “Adina” or “Adenoidal” (about 40, attractive, apparently tallish, with long dark hair, not to be confused with indistinguishable Feminazi USA Today fake news reporter Heidi Przybyla, who used the Moore conspiracy as her coming out party) called for instituting an “HR” department in Congress. Of course, nobody countered her by mentioning that it would be unconstitutional to have an office (staffed with Feminazis, natch) that could nullify democratic elections….

I like women as much as the next guy but politically, they’re a menace to civilization. It’s no wonder so many feminazis look like Andrea Dworkin. Very few women do logic as well as they do emotion which makes them tailor-made for commie manipulation.

Disappearing Red Old White Men (Part II)

After shutting off the box, I learned that two old lefties, Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz, were just forced out at Red WNYC radio. Sexual something. No specifics.

I’d thought that Schwartz had been forced into retirement years ago! Several years ago, I tried in vain to find his radio show at the WNYC web page, only to find a link to a pay-to-play show at Sirius XM, which consisted of pre-recorded packages of songs hosted by Schwartz, whatever that meant.

When I was about 14, I once cut school (I did that a lot) on a lovely spring day, and snuck back home, to lie on my bed and listen to Schwartz’ afternoon show on WNEW-AM (RIP). Suddenly, I heard a key in the lock, turned off the radio, and ran into the closet.

It was my Mom and my big sister (who would have just turned 17) returning early from wherever.

For three hours, I sat atop an old, blue, plastic toy chest behind clothes in the bedroom closet, waiting for them to leave again, so I could leave and “come home.”

They must have gone down the hall to my Nana’s place.

On and off for 30-odd years, sandwiched around college, five years in West Germany, and four years with the NJG, I’d listen to Schwartz’ Sinatra show afternoons on WNEW-AM, and to his rock show Sundays on WNEW-FM. When Bloomberg bought WNEW-AM, I listened to him on the exiled WNEW-AM at the New York Times’ AM station, WQXR, and when they leased (1-1-1999) and then sold it (later that year) to Disney as a kids’ station, at WNYC-FM.

When WNEW-AM’s death warrant was announced in late 1998, I managed to sell a pseudonymous essay on it as “Robert Berman” to the Long Island daily, Newsday. They gave it a beautiful spread, with an original drawing of a grave for the station, with an old-fashioned, wooden radio serving as the tombstone, call letters “W.R.I.P.,” with an electrical plug planted in the grass, its plug standing up with musical notes floating from it towards the moon. “This Radio Station Did Things Its Way”; December 11, 1998.

(Newsday’s New York City subsidiary, New York Newsday, had whitelisted me in 1991.)…

I miss WNEW too. I kinda liked Jonathan Schwartz, one of the few Jewish celebrities I can stomach.

I guess this means I won’t have to do an update tonight on how your today was.

You all probably know how my today was.

Mom Stix, Jeff Bezos, and Jonathan Schwartz (Part III)

Twenty or thirty years ago, Schwartz claimed to have spent a year in Paris in 1962, when he was 21.

When I told my mom this, she shot back, “He wasn’t 21, he was 24!”

I have no idea how she knew this, but she was right; Schwartz had fibbed. His birth year is now listed as 1938.

I don’t believe Mom ever met Jonathan Schwartz, but there was only one (or is it two?) degree of separation between them.

My grandfather, Louis Simpkins, had had his own advertising company, which failed during Great Depression I. Jonathan Schwartz’ father Arthur was one half of the songwriting team, (Howard) Dietz & Schwartz.

(Both of my grandfathers were named Louis. For reasons unknown to me, this was a wildly popular name for Jewish boys born in the late 19th and early 20th century.)

While Arthur Schwartz lived off of his music royalties, Howard Dietz never gave up his day job, which was as PR chief at MGM.

The ads (trailer taglines, etc.) for the big studios’ pictures were as stupid as they were insipid and hyperbolic. You’d never know that those departments were at times run by gifted people.

To make a short story long, one time Grandpa Simpkins brought my little girl mom by on a visit to Howard Dietz’ office in New York.

It’s been a terrible week for Jonathan Schwartz. Just a few days earlier, I determined that Jeff Bezos had disappeared one of Schwartz’ wives!

As long as we’re getting old here, I remember Cousin Brucie playing the Beatles and the Stones the first time around. I remember Schwartz’s show on wnew-fm in the early 70’s, he seemed to have better taste than the usual guys and would play the extended cuts instead of the quickie versions. You know you’re getting old when what was shocking, bleeding edge music has turned into elevator Muzak 3 times already.

Speaking of Cousin Brucie, I looked him up at, and he’s 82!
Note too that he has a “nickname”: “The Big ‘M.'”

And here I thought all these years that his nickname was “Cousin Brucie”!

I’m curious as to what you think about Jeff Sessions and his performance as AG thus far. Sessions was never even on my radar before you began talking him up as your preferred presidential candidate. I can’t see through as to whether he’s playing some kind of super effective shadow long game or he’s a broken reed.

With regard to your flu, it is too late for this go-round, but I find that a product called Huma Life is a great preventative to illness, and if you are coming down with the flu or a cold, it shortens the illness. Good Luck.

Regarding the flu, personally I would recommend lots of garlic: using a garlic press squeeze out two or three cloves, boil water enough for a large cup. Turn off water, let settle then add the garlic and let steep in pot for 5 minutes. Strain out garlic as you pour water into cup. If necessary add chicken stock, powder is okay, to flavor. Repeat this 3-5 times per day. Try to get fresh air since house air is too dry. This has worked for me for years. Garlic is anti viral, anti fungal, stimulates immunity.

Hang in there QD. Your return has been one of the few high points this year. I was bracing myself for news that you’d never come back mentally.

Please get better ya’ funny bastard! I wish you were feeling OK to explain the Roy Moore loss and what actually is going on. I was hoping he would win just to stick it to asshats like Chief Lizzie Liawatha Warren, but I think he was just a crappy dud of a candidate who had lost statewide elections previously and obviously didn’t learn any lessons. Also, he alienated folks who normally would have overwhelmingly supported a conservative candidate but he went way too public with his religious fervor (exit polls showed Evangelicals supported him 25 points less than the Mormon Romney!). So something weird was going on, but I don’t know. The talking heads on FoxNews are dolts who wanted him to lose. Wish you could give an opinion on this if you can!
