It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve had a good shoot the shit, so we’re overdue for one. But, before getting started, I want to take a moment to remember our 41st President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush. He was a prominent member of America’s Greatest Generation, and a World War II veteran. He dedicated his life to public service and gave us his son George W. Bush who, in his father’s tradition, got us through some difficult times. G.H.W., may you rest in eternal peace and may your life inspire young Americans to love their country and to serve the way you gave of yourself. By the way George, I hate broccoli too, it’s like eating shrubbery!
All right, so what is a shoot the shit?
A shoot the shit is an informal period of social interaction where participants don’t need to know anything about the subjects being discussed. As a participant, you can make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether. There’s no specific agenda, and it’s far more effective than paying some jackass who studied psychology in college so they could understand themselves.

The Daily Wire published an article that will blow your socks off “UNHAPPY MEAL: Michigan Lawmakers Want To Ban Fast Food Chains From Offering ‘Gender-Specific’ Toys”, 29 Nov 2018. Apparently, there are a dozen or more Michigan lawmakers that are asking fast food chains not to offer gender specific toys in their Happy Meal boxes for kids. You’ve got to be kidding me. So what do you do when your 3 to 5 year old kids start exploring themselves and wonder why one is different from the other. Amazing folks!
On a different note, but along the same lines, the U.S. Airforce relieved Lt. Col. Paul Goossen of his post, commanding the 69th Bomb Squadron, after crude penis drawings were discovered on the plane’s Combat Network Communications Technology (CONECT) moving map software, which records shared data for post-sortie debriefs. Apparently there were several participants and took place during the unit’s deployment to Al Udeid Air Force Base in Qatar between September 2017 and April 2018. They were planning on saving these images to CD for later viewing but someone slipped and left evidence behind which was discovered and reported to the chain of command. LOL! Please forgive me because I can’t stop laughing! I don’t know what more to say but I guess we can stop calling the cockpit a “cockpit.”
I watched a good portion of G.H.W. Bush’s ceremony and caught Dan Quayle’s interaction with the media. As you may recall, Dan Quayle was subjected to considerable harassment about his spelling abilities, apparently he had a hard time with “potato. “ None of that would have been a problem had Twitter been up and running back then. G.H.W. Bush still hung in there with Dan. How’s that for loyalty.
In a stroke of crania-vaginal inversion, one of the Senate luminaries, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, decided to let the world know that the future belongs to females and intersectional. So, what the hell is intersectional? I Googled it and here is the search results:
“Intersectionality is a term that was coined by American professor Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989. The concept already existed but she put a name to it.

The textbook definition states: The view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees of intensity.”
