I was with my parents yesterday. We drove to the North East Kingom to the great woods of Maine. My favorite spot is still scenic Walace Pond that is mostly in Canada. Maybe someday I will get to retire there.
We drove through several notches the most dificult one is Smugglers Notch. The best looking is Dixville Notch with the hotel the Balsams at its base. The Balsams looks like something taken from a Renoir painting. Most normal people like Renoir, who is despised by the Duck. However, a person that trashes Renoir and studies Arabic caligraphy is obviously an idiot.
We continued to Grafton Notch and there are many exciting things there. Unfortunately it rained so I will return in better weather. Any gorge known as Moose Cave deserves a visit even if no Moose are present.
The return trip passed Mount Washington and the Green Mountains of Vermont. The White Mountains are better on the eye.
The forces of evil have their panties in a knot as Norman Finkelstein noted anti-semite was denied tenure. The thrice fired clown has not published articles that are the prequisite for tenure. Book sales are not the criteria and his books should have been placed in the crank aisle long ago. The merits of harassing Elie Weisel over reading Kant in Yidish are typical of crank antics that are typical of a mental case who will teach in the or elsewhere. Fans of the noted anti-semite need not worry that he will be unemployed for long.
Renegade Eye is making up some absurd claims that I am behind threats to spam his blog. I have not commented there in many weeks and have nothing to do with anything there. As far as spam is concerned he should talk to his friend who has spammed this blog and has threatened children with molestation. This blog has been spammed daily for two weeks with around 200 comments a day. If he has any proof that I am behind this let him show it or quit crying.
More to the point Ren has lost all his marbles and needs to stop crying. He has attempted a left wing McCarthyite tactics under the most absurd charges. He is bawling because I called Troutsky a simpleton, despite the much more strident personal attacks. Troutsky will be the first to admit to them and it is no big deal.
Ren is also still bawling over being linked to Ayers, Dorn, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. Excuse me, but all of the above share the same philosophy with Ren and at best differ on tactics and procedure. I do not buy this rope a dope garbage with him claiming to be a Troskyite. This is as absurd as a goon claiming to rehabilitate a Roehm version of Nazism.
More to the point, I respect people like Jams and Redwine who is way to my left. Jams is an idealist and as such he is not beholden or an apologist for class genocide, flat earth economics and meglomaniacal third word despots. I also respect Beatroot as a refreshing cynic who tends to equivacate but is articulate. The continued denial of realities in Cuba, Venezuela and elsewhere are flat earth logic.
Ren is also an actual anti-semite who feeds the most rabid mania of people like John, Brown, The Pupeteer, LWB and the incoherent MFL.
