'88 Olympic Taekwondo

Taekwondo was a demonstration sport at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. It was the first time that the sport was included in the Olympic program; it would become an official sport twelve years later at the 2000 Games. A total of 120 men and 62 women from 35 different nations competed in eight different weight classes. Each event featured a single-elimination tournament to determine the winner. Competition was held at the Changchung Gymnasium from September 17 to 20. Fighters from the host nation of South Korea won nine of the sixteen events. Team USA women won first place and the USA women's and men's team overall placed second to Korea.

Genetic Surveys

Have you seen the genetic survey you can buy for yourself? The kit costs around a $100 and you take a swab from your mouth and send it to a lab. National Geographic is one of the businesses that offers the service.

Well, I read an article that said the analyses from some surveys are being tricked up by the testing lab to falsely claim minority backgrounds among those of the Caucasian persuasion.

If this is true, I may yet turn out to be a Maori warrior. It's the only way I could ever become a Maori warrior.

So, if I get the results back and the survey says I am partially descended from African slaves, can I apply for a grant or something as a minority? Just a thought. I could use some free money.

On this day (December 8) in 1980, John Lennon was shot to death outside the entrance to The Dakota, an exclusive apartment building in NYC where he lived with wife Yoko and children. Lennon was 40 years old.

Good Entertainment Is Hard To Find

These are indeed crazy days. Political tension is palpable in the US. People actually hate one another over their political affiliations which basically divides along racial and philosophical lines. In other words, there is no foreseeable solution to the problem. What problem is that, you may ask? Well, it is the very real political and cultural warfare going on in the US and, by extension, the entire world. Yes, we are at war on several fronts, it's true, but the most alarming front is the leftist revolution that would have us all reject capitalism, Christianity, our heritage and our history.

They want to tear it all down and re-build with an economic model more like Lenin and Marx and Chairman Mao intended. They think a new global government will usher in a thousand years of prosperity and a Star Trek future where everybody gets along just peachy -- except for the Klingons orbiting Uranus.

You know, I've been thinking. I could easily live in a two room apartment in a government high-rise. I wouldn't even mind turning in my guns and giving up my gas-guzzling vehicles. I promise to stop telling my lying redneck neighbors to fuck off. I'll pay my taxes and ride the bus to the market. I'll give up going to church and sign up with the dominant political party. I'll look down when I encounter anyone on the street, especially law enforcement. I'll admit I am a sexual harasser, a lurking hulk just waiting to ask if your mom had big tits too. I'll take the medicine they give and I'll watch mainstream media. I'll throw a Super Bowl watching party this year! I'll hand out plastic zombie masks as party favors. Will any of that make me a good commie?

All righty then. Let's move on to the lazy man's talking points:

♠ Did you hear Al Franken is going to resign? Who cares?

♠ We will lose control over artificial intelligence and it will likely be soon. What will happen then? Your guess is as good as mine.

♠ I am not making up this stuff. There is a nasty rumor circulating that pedophilia is alive and well among diplomats and globalists and people of power. Turns out it is the ultimate method of gaining control over someone. That is, a blackmail type of control. You think that's what the initiates at the Bohemian Grove are doing? Buggering adolescent love slaves? And how does that measure up against a handful of debatable sexual harassment charges? I can hear it now -- "We'll give you a pass on the deviant behavior with children but I'm afraid we have to do something about these harassment charges against women." Sheesh.

♠ Seems legitimate to ask (again) what the heck are we doing in Afghanistan? It's perpetual war. I am rapidly becoming an old man and my country has been at war in one place or another for my entire life.

♠ How goes the war in Syria? Who knows, right? I hear literally nothing these days, yet I am certain millions, nay, billions of warfare dollars are still being spent. We got Assad's troops, we got US special forces, we've got the Russians, we've got the Kurds, we've got players of all stripes fighting for a home among the sand dunes and I can't find out whether our side is winning or losing. The important thing is, do we have control over the oil yet?

♠ The US stock market is booming. The job market is opening up as well. Eight years of taxation and socialization have been shed and once again the economic engines of America have started up.

♠ California is burning. If that's not karma, I don't know what it is.

♠ Jerusalem will be Isreal's capital city and the Arabs are fit to be tied about it. Did you know it is prophecy that the Jewish temple in Jerusalem will be restored prior to the second coming of Christ? Maybe that's why the Arabs are so upset. Or maybe they just can't find a good cheeseburger in Dubai.

I could go on for days but I need to go watch my redneck neighbor as he searches for rotten goobers in his garden. Entertainment is hard to come by around here. Have a good day, friends, and don't let any of the fake news upset you. It's fake!

Thanks for reading!
