Readers it’s been quite a few weeks since we’ve had a shoot the shit, between SHOT SHOW and a death in my family I haven’t been keeping up with interesting events to shoot the shit about. For readers just dropping in, let me tell you what a shoot the shit is.
A shoot the shit is a freeform discussion during which any subject can be brought up. Participants don’t need to know anything about the subject matter but remain free to make any unsupported comment they wish. They can also use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject altogether. It is a social interaction, designed to keep you from fingering your iPhone and out of a therapist’s office. A therapist is a jackass who thinks he or she understands you, and usually one who studied psychology so they could understand themselves. Roughly 60% of students majoring in psychology do so to understand themselves, which accounts for the number of hosed up people walking the streets. Two states in the US have the largest population of “licensed” psychologists, they are California and New York; followed by Pennsylvania where the principal concentration is in Philadelphia. So, what does that tell you? It should tell you that a good shoot the shit is the better alternative to therapy, in both cost and efficacy.
Social Media and Pounding Your Pud
Have you heard about the Paris, France, mayoral election issue? A gentleman by the name of Benjamin Griveaux, the favored candidate and ally of Emmanuel Macron, had to abandon the race because a sexually explicit video of himself surfaced on the internet. Apparently, in 2017 or 2018 he sent a video of himself pounding his pud to a woman he met online. In late 2019,or early 2020, the video was published online by an exiled Russian performance actor, living in Paris, named Piotr Pavlensky . Apparently the woman Monsieur Griveaux was attempting to impress with either stamina or size is Piotr Pavlensky’s girlfriend. Mr. Pavlensky felt that Monsieur Griveaux, an advocate for family values, was being a hypocrite.
Interestingly, Piotr Pavlensky ran afoul of the Russian government when he burned down a couple of buildings and nailed a testicle on a Red Square wall. Now, I was not able to confirm whether that was his testicle or someone else’s, but if that act is indicative of national character it could be a valid reason for President Trump’s desire to repair and strengthen relationships with the Russia.
What the hell are the Democrats doing?
Hopefully you’re all keeping up with the political scene, it’s like watching the three stooges. Elizabeth Warren decided to beat up Bloomberg during the Las Vegas Democrat Debate, she says: “I’d like to talk about who we’re running against: a billionaire who calls women ‘fat broads’ and ‘horse-faced lesbians,’” “And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump, I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.” Now, this comes from a woman of highly questionable veracity, but can you imagine what her reaction would be had Bloomberg called her a a scrawny flat ass big mouth bar fly?
Next up is the Twitter and Congressional darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who the media describes as powerful and influential. AOC, wants her followers to know that our economy revolves around rich white men, which are of no interest to her. Instead she has families at the center of her heart. So, who is AOC campaigning for? Bernie Sanders who is a rich white man. She also ran Amazon out of her district. The company would have added 125,000 new jobs with a median salary of $150,000. Think how that would have benefitted families in her district. So, come Nov 2020, New Yorkers should embrace MABA (Make Alexandria Bartend Again)
I hope you’ve all had a productive and interesting week and that you’re looking forward to some R&R over the weekend. Put down the iPhone and have your own shoot the shit with your buds and family. Be safe and be well. -SP
