Times ARE changing

Times are hardly changing at all in substance, actually - this is
nothing but a superficial change of costumes in society's grand parade
of exquisite nonsense. Always a great pretense of love, always plenty of
real hate and prejudice. The thugs and their victims do change in every
Act of society's Play, fitting the fashions of the day, but either way
it's still innocent people getting hurt.
For devotees of virtue signaling, let's cut to the chase - time to
change your OWN names too! Lest Tom or Jane offend the perpetually
triggered, not to mention the horror of David, Nancy, Joshua, or Billy
with all the cultural skeletons that imaginative minds could attach to
them. (I could, easily.) Let's be thorough and not stop half-way with
the cultural lobotomy.
For those who love fake news and fictitious history, here's a true fact
to completely ruin the day: I grew up deep in the real South (not the TV
or novel versions) and heard a number of derogatory racial terms for all
races including my own, but NEVER once Sambo. At least not by real live
English speakers in that region - again, books and TV aside. The point
of real derogatory terms would be to sound nasty and hurtful, and in
most places where I've been, Sambo just wouldn't cut it. Sorry. Maybe it
could have been a problem up in the North or out in California (I have
no idea) but certainly not in the South where I was.
For book burners and those who love censorship, here's the ultimate
downer: the glory of Gutenberg, still going strong!
Once enough people finally tire of pretense and corruption and control,
the smart and honest people of every background can and will finally get
on with the REAL business of a non-prejudiced society to benefit real
people. And it won't be anything like the media/mob fantasy.
Speaking of cheese - even "Cheddar is better" or "I only own Provolone"
would seem amazingly intellectual and relevant when compared to
mind-numbing trends like this! But I dare say LiveCode topics would be
even MORE relevant than either Sambo or the wonders of cheese! Not to
mention talented/hilarious Vikings and glorious, marvelous sp*m....
Always in love, but always with some intelligence too,
