THE ABSURD TIMES
Illustration: Supposedly a batter in baseball, but look at it. He is hitting a very outside pitch toward the the third BASE gRANDSTAND SEATS If not the dugout. In order to even hit that, he had to take his stance at least two feet outside of the right handed batters box. It helps to look at the location of home plate and the angle of the illustrator.

Well, we are here again. Once again, another election, filled with ignorance and money, lies and mistortions.
SOME OF THE FOOLISHNESS
I've never gotten an answer to my question: Maga? Make America Great Again? What year or decade did you have in mind? They never answer, just slink off and unfollow me. Another one was this guy who said "I don't think Mrs Biden should call herself doctor -- she's not medical." I told him to take out his own Ph.D. diploma and he will see that x has been awarded the Doctorate of y and is entitled to all of the rights and privileges thereto appertaining. (I never saw him again, either, Maybe I have to work on my people skills? Or, seeing what has happened with #45's career, could it stand for MAKING ATTORNEYS GET ATTORNEYS"?
Hershell Walker is perhaps the defining MAGA Republican candidate. His hypocrasies and idiocies are well-known to those who follow this insanity and of no interest to those who do. They include quotes such as "If you think I'm crazy, you think Jesus is too," "I finished at the top of my class," although he never graduated, and so on. His ignorance and stupidity is blatently obvious and needn't be further described here. Even the abortions he subsidezed while being against all abortions is not worth noting as he is a Republican.
Further back, however, there are some interesting facts. He was once an outstanding professional football player and could have been in a class rivaling another Mississippi favorite Bret Farve, but retired. He decided that as he was so magnificant an althlete, he would become a great basebal player. Now, I am older that Walker and so when I had a chance to play [I was offered the opportunty after I pitched a no-hitter against Eau Clair, the Cub's AAA minor league team) but declined it. A major reason was that Baseball was the only professional sport to indulge in indentured servitude though a device called the "reserve clause" which meant if you did not like the conditions a team offered you quiting or accepting were your only options. You could NOT NEGOTIATE OR PLAY WITH ANOTHER TEAM! This stayed in effect until Curt Flood, a brilliant player who came up with the Cubs and therefore was dealt to St. Louis quit and filed suit. While his case moved up to the Supreme Court, he sat in Africa doing oil paintings of some quality. When the case was finally heard by the Supreme Court and the clause rendered unconstitutional, I was too old to even consider starting a baseball career and I smirked as George Steinbrenner signed CatfishHunter to a million dallare contract, way above normal salary grades, but worth it.
Well, I was a pitcher that most teams considered a hitter and that I had better learn a different position. I saw Walker briefly in one of his games. He caught a fly ball way out in left center field and ran along or against, I mean horozontally, feet to the wall, for some time, only stopping because he had lost the force or realized he was going too far towards left. That was not the significant incident. Most significant was seeing him at bat. Now I was one of those pitchers who decided what and where to throw depending upon the batter's position and stance. It was almost completely non-verbal. One could tell the weak spot just by looking. Hershell at bat was ridiculous. His strike zone seemed ridiculously elongated. I mean, it seemed to be seven feet high and nobody could reach every pitch in that zone. It was a minor league game and I understood his average was .222, far higher than I would have expected, but it may have been a class A team: I had no idea, but did wish with a month to prepare I could easily strike him out, no doubt about it. Well, his is in Gerogia, so he could win.
Is Dorothy anywhere near? The Republican is a TV Doctor with #45's imprimature and lives, usually in New Jersey. His other 9 mansions are scattered about. He wants to be Senator from Pennsylvania. His opponent has the handicap of being both honest and right, but Oz has the support of the stupid. The Governatorial candidate on the Republican side thinks conception when the date sits down to dinner. This is simply too insane to let stand.
There is no point in subjecting ourselves to even considering all of the human scum comprising MAGA voters and actors. All one needs to know is that if there is an "R" net to their name, it means this one is actually willing to admit their shortcomings and has no trouble in locating them.
