Mo & Mo en Route – the Fix

The Big Fix

There’s a long history of messing with Congressional District boundaries for political gain. It’s messy, I guess it’s an art, but it isn’t pretty.

You know what this looks like? It’s Abstract Expressionism, it is not supposed to look “like” anything. > No, but really look… It conveys action, movement, freedom, it pulls you in, making you feel a part of the work. > It reminds me of a gerrymandered congressional district map… except the result is a polarized Congress without the whole action, movement, freedom, and be a part of it thing. > Ok, I guess I see it. But the painting I like. There is a beauty to it. And with Congress… it just gets ugly.




Mo & Mo en Route – FWWC Amazing

FWWC was amazing!

Women’s World Cup said it all. Nothing lesser here, and so much more!

Shall we now, once and for all, put an end to this absurdity that Women’s sports are in any way less? Come on! Did you see the Women’s World Cup? It was freakin' amazing!




Mo & Mo en Route – Gun v. Safe

Gun v. Safe

Why can’t common sense be a part of the conversation about guns and safety?

I’m a gun guy. I looove guns. I think we got that. > Guns are great! Make you feel powerful, in control, safe … Over 30,000 gun deaths a year in the U.S. Not feeling safe. >  That’s why we need more guns! We should arm everyone! 9 out of 10 shootings are not defensive or about property protection. Still not feeling safe. > You do get, if everyone has a gun… There’ll be more shooting? Exactly! You know that expression, “Cut off your nose to spite your face”? Might help here.




Mo & Mo en Route – Naming Rights

Why do companies and people pay big money for naming rights in the marketplace, but pay big money and hide their names in politics?

Mo & Mo en Route – Just Don’t Click

Just don’t click…

Why do legit news stories have all these bizarre “ad” or “paid” news stories at the end or mixed in with them?Clog-15-20b




Mo & Mo en Route – Marginalize

Marginalize

When everything becomes marginalized, what’s left?

MG - Marginalizing, sure a lot of it.  ML - Be it by races, by sex, by age, by class…  ML - Workers, farmers, this biz, that biz, heck whole countries. MG - Marginalizing so many, there are no margins anymore.  ML - All that’s left is that dot. MG - Looks like a zit.> ML - If we scrub real hard maybe it’ll go away? MG - We could try that.




Mo & Mo en Route – Ballast

Ballast

One of the meanings for ballast is, “anything that gives mental or moral stability”. This is hard to measure, but when lost the cost is immeasurable.

What’s that? The corporate balloon… they’re dropping ballast. Ballast with parachutes?  I mean employees… > The company is trying to stay aloft. Those are skimpy parachutes. Well, there might be some rough landings…  But fear not, the company gives the biggest parachutes to those with the biggest salaries. Seems counterintuitive?  Yeah. - Ouch!-OOO!-Ugh!-Thud! How do they keep from going down? Well, we do know the problem isn’t a lack of hot air. No, no, not the problem. - Go-team-go! Cut! Cut-back, Buy back, Re-org, Spin-off… Still sinking! What now? Flap, flap your arms! Need more resources! Too late.




Mo & Mo en Route – Cliffhangers

Cliffhangers

You would think they could come up with a new device…

Our hero being chased by the angry mob... Makes a desperate attempt to escape, he jumps! Is this the end of him?  I really hate all these season ending cliffhangers.  UUH… Writers should know if the show is good, we’ll be back?  And if we do come back, it's in spite of, not because of, the cliffhanger. Except now we’re just annoyed! Hey, I could use some resolution about now! Maybe next season.




So where does this make sense?
