Chicken Hawks in "The Last Battle"

 In a spoof of the World War I canard that the British military was comprised of lions ๐Ÿฆ led by donkeys - C.S. Lewis describes a donkey led by an ape ๐Ÿฆ in "The Last Battle" This metaphor seems to describe how the US military has been mismanaged at least since WWII with chickenhawks like Lindsey Graham leading the way:

Puzzle / Donkey: “Wouldn’t it be better if you went in because it’s you that wants to know what it is & I don’t much…”

Shift / Ape : “Really, Puzzle … I didn’t think you’d say a thing like that. I didn’t think it of you….but I’ll go in. I shall probably die then you’ll be sorry!”

The Deep State in "The Silver Chair"

 C. S. Lewis talks about the Deep State in post war Britain ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง in "The Silver Chair" about how some commie leftist school administrator ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿซ was able to fail upwards by wangling a job in Parliament with the help of her commie friends:

“When the police arrived & found … the head [principal] behaving like a lunatic there was an inquiry into the whole thing. & in the inquiry all sorts of things about Experiment House came out & about 10 people got expelled. After that, the head’s friends saw that the head was no use as a head so they got her made an inspector to interfere with other heads. And when they found that she wasn’t much good even at that, they got her into Parliament where she lived happily ever after."

Madeline Kahn singing ๐Ÿ—ฃ️ ๐ŸŽผ ๐ŸŽถ “I Feel Pretty” from "West Side Story" on a "Saturday Night Live" spoof of Frankenstein. The audio & video aren't quite synced up for some reason ๐Ÿคท‍♂️

I think the joke at the beginning of the skit refers to Benjamin Franklin sending a kite in a lightning storm to generate electricity ๐ŸŒฉ️ ๐Ÿช

Glenn Beck Thinks Both Ukraine & Russia Are Corrupt

 I typed out the transcript of Beck 's video since most people apparently didn't listen to it. Beck thinks both Ukraine & Russia are corrupt & that the USA shouldn't support either side. He points out Putin 's Machiavellian speech is meant to split the West but that his advisor Dugin wants to precipitate global thermonuclear war :nuke: much like the religious mullahs do in Iran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท

"Yesterday Putin was praised by many on the right…they’re the words of “Traditionalism.” And these tactics are traced back to one guy. I have told you he is the most dangerous man in the world. He is a radical philosopher named Aleksandr Dugin . “Traditionalism” is part of Dugin ’s philosophy but it is not Traditionalism with a small “t” It is a capital T. Small t traditionalism : family values, God, country, honor , Okay. Capital T Traditionalism is very different. It is heralding the end of modernity. It is a movement that is just as real and dangerous and deadly as nazism, fascism, and communism. And any church, any group, on the right that hears this kind of language and foolishly starts to fall in with people who are quote “Traditionalists” are going to spell grave, grave trouble for the republic and for a chance of being able to survive. Traditionalists despise the modern world. The believe that destruction is necessary for a utopia on earth. Not heaven. Armageddon comes and instead of Christ :jesus: coming down, [ Dugin ’s ] theology of dark mass then Russia steps in & then we have the utopia. Dugin , Putin do not believe in the traditional values, the religious values but they know how powerful this message is. They are selling you a cathedral that is actually a windowless, concrete building with a basement that you don’t want to know what’s going on in the basement. WARNING [to] all conservatives. Capital T Tradtionalism. Aleksandr Dugin uhm Vladimir Putin are not your friends. Do not pick sides between these two evils [ Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ & Russia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ ] because they are leading us to destruction, both sides."

Blue Roses


In a clip from "Anthropoid" about events that took place in World War II the characters assert that there was a bed of colored roses in the shape of the old Czechoslovakian flag ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ but their flag was red -white - & blue & blue roses ๐Ÿต️ were only artificially engineered in 2004.

I tried searching online & I couldn't find anything about this alleged Czech flag made of roses ๐ŸŒน

In the documentary "The Lost Corvette" ๐ŸŽ️ about the missing 1983 Corvette -during a debate between digital vs analog dashboards - one of the builders asserts:

"Analog is cool, but it'll never be David Hasselhoff cool"

I don't understand the Italian construction business ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‘ท‍♂️In "The Man Who Will Come" a character brings a live chicken ๐Ÿ” to a roof repair job ๐Ÿ”จ

Pez = Federal Reserve


The experience of Steve Glew - the protagonist in the documentary "The Pez Outlaw" - seems to be that of the average citizen vs the state

๐Ÿฌ Pez ≈ Federal Reserve ๐Ÿ›️
๐Ÿญ Increased manufacture of formerly rare Pez dispensers leads to devaluation ≈ Fed printing money ๐Ÿ’ธ ๐Ÿ“ˆ
Glew going bankrupt ≈ citizen losing life's savings :stonkdown:

“The people in Hungary, [which he calls Hungaria ] if you don’t control them some person is working in the … factory they steal the [Pez] dispensers & they sell it to them [resellers/fences] ….”

“Was it something illegal?”

“Ah, this word.  Scott [US Pez director] always used this word, illegal.  ‘All was illegal.’ And you know if you work in these countries, in former Easter European countries,  there is not everything illegal.  There are some things that are not so serious.  But I have no problem with this.  This is nothing for me. We say in German ‘Des past.’  For me. It’s okay. 

“What does that mean?”

“This means that I have accepted what happened.  Des past.”
