Think Of TMR As An Unintentional Oversight Committee


Did I ever mention The most thorough and independent assessment of homeopathy ever conducted? If not, I should have. Sorry. Here's the results, as phrased by Prof. Edzard Ernst (because I liked his phrasing better) and as if you needed to hear it:
"Not for a single health condition was there reliable evidence that homeopathy was effective."

One of these days, when homeopathy's dead bodies are lined up end-to-end, some of you are going to be just as conflicted - about being Whole Foods shoppers - as I am about having been married.
 
It won't be quite that bad, though, I hope,...
 


Pressed-Oh-Change-Oh (You Can Still Say It But Don't)


Hot Air's Allahpundit did a bit of,…well, let's call it "creative political visualization," and TMR's most likely scenario was played out:



And - BOOM! - They're gone:

I love that "somehow" at the end, too, because only the most dense are missing these many "colorblind" euphemisms - for the racial obvious - while the rest of us are catching them in a bucket,…

I Didn't Write The Script (I Read It For My Enjoyment)



Candy Crowley: "Do you think your Republican colleagues are racist?"

Steve Israel: "Not all of them, no. Of course not. But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism."

Incognegro


Can anyone else tell I'm getting tired of blogging?


I'm getting tired of blogging.


The daily grind, anyway.


I've explained TMR's interests and outlook a billion times, and it does no good, so - since you're all so happy with Glenn Reynolds' precognitions and I don't feel like doing it again - I'm happy to know I'm right and just let the cards fall where they may:



And to "expand beyond that tradition" must mean some of that "rethinking in other areas” Mickey Kaus was talking about.


Or not.


You never know with the Get-off-The-Democrat-Plantation crew.


I don't anyway.


Even our hero, Hammering Hank Aaron, tells them they're racists and they didn't get a clue, so what does that tell you?


Jenny McCarthy says "I am not 'anti-vaccine'” after years of being anti-vaccine - is that any different from the "colorblind" Republicans who can't stop doing and saying racist things?


I can't see it.


It's all cultism to me now - herd mentality - call it what you want.


A woman told me acupuncture is an ancient practice yesterday.


I let her talk.


This morning another woman attacked me over recycling.


I apologized for upsetting her.


Most major hospitals have mainstreamed my wife's beliefs - what am I going to do, blog about the idiocy I see - some more?


It's so widespread I'll never do anything else.

 

 But now I am doing something else.

 

Tomorrow is another edition of Uncle Ray's Psychedelic Soul, where he and I will be counting down his Top 100 Psychedelic Soul Albums and discussing whatever he may decide to throw at me.


(He's indicated Hank Aaron WILL be a topic,…)


Feel free to tune in, call in, catch up, make trouble:


In case you haven't noticed, I've honestly stopped giving a damn,…

"I Don't See Race" Is The Sign Of A Bad Mental Problem



Commenting on white supremacy. When Paul Ryan's "bad culture" needs comparisons, this mash-up's as natural as it gets - since the instigator's voice has been ringing out since, at least, the 1700s but the disasters are all contemporary - and it's America's crying shame. 

The Aspergers I mean. I'm noticing the Aspergers, BIG TIME, now. I can't look away:

Very few are feeling a thing,...

They Do Not See Race They Do Not See Race They,...


By way of Hot Air, Ol' Mickey Kaus let the veil slip, but  - to bring it home - caught The Euphemism Train To Blacksville: 



Tea Party suppression? And Latinos, specifically, are seen as an escape hatch - from who or what? What "other areas" might Right-Wing relief from "too much rethinking" be required?


How about reaffirmations of the importance of responsibilities - I mean, citizens - until they recognize,…
 

The Temptations: Time Passes (U Learn To Walk & Talk)


I'm pondering conservative's racism from almost a century ago.



Compared to conservative's racism from almost a century later.



With conservative's ability to see history elsewhere.


But not where it matters.

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan.

Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance.

“Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports. Aaron continued: “The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

Aaron stated that there is still room for improvement for race relations in the U.S.

“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Aaron goes on to describe the racist letters he has kept for decades as he was chasing Babe Ruth’s home run record.


“To remind myself that we are not that far removed from when I was chasing the record,” Aaron explained to USA Today Sports. “If you think that, you are fooling yourself. A lot of things have happened in this country, but we have so far to go. There’s not a whole lot that has changed.”



It's almost like they're *up* to something,...
