Déjà Vu All Over Again: Saturday Night Edition

It feels just like the 70’s again, without all the cool clothes.

Run away inflation, high unemployment, gas lines along with rapidly rising gas prices – oh, and another humiliating defeat of our military at the hands of the most incompetent cast of commanders and clowns since Robert McNamara.

General Milley knew what was going to happen as soon as we left Afghanistan, although he played word games with the inevitable:

The Taliban has seized a substantial swath of territory and "the strategic momentum seems to be with the Taliban, but the Afghan security forces are consolidating their forces to protect population centers," Milley said. "They are adjusting forces to consolidate forces into the provincial capitals and Kabul. It remains to be seen what will happen. … I don't think the endgame is yet written." – General Mark Milley, July 21, 2021

Yes, the end game is written, has been for a long time and yes you knew it, you (explicative deleted). So now we’re sending 3000 more Marines to evacuate the Americans left behind and some of the Afghani who helped us as the Taliban prepares to take the city of Kabul. Just like Vietnam…of wait: Joey said that would NEVER happen.

Biden explicitly in his remarks on Thursday he denied any comparison, any echo to Vietnam. He said this, "There's going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy. The United States from Afghanistan, it is not at all comparable. – Joe Biden, July 8, 2021

At least we eliminated most of this country’s racism in the intervening 50 years in this country - oh wait…

white supremacy

I guess not. Progressives managed to recreate Racism 2.0.

racism now

Well done Obama! You’ve managed to fundamentally transform America back to exactly the way it used to be.

Right up to and including segregated classrooms

don't treat our children like prisoners

…and children being treated like prisoners.

Thanks to the circular nature of Progressivism we’ve come a long way, baby; full circle in fact.


All this déjà vu is making me dizzy. I don’t even think I can dance anymore.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive

You know it's alright, it's okay
I'll live to see another day
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man

Join me if you are so inclined to pray for our troops and embassy staff in Afghanistan currently stuck in the middle of the biggest FUBAR mission since the 70s.
