MASTER OF THE VAUDEVILLEAN UNIVERSE

Torn out of an unidentified trade newspaper, yellowed but unbowed, this clipping from a century-or-more-ago proclaims my grandfather’s ascent:

JOE LOW PRODUCTIONS
Will Furnish Acts For Shuberts’ Ad-
Vanced Vaudeville
New York, June 6 –
Negotiations have been completed by
The Joe Low productions to furnish acts working in “one” for the Shubert Advanced Vaudeville Circuit next season. Four such acts with a cast not exceeding people each will be placed in rehearsal shortly. These acts will be used to fill in between headline turns. They will be equipped with special sets. The Low Productions concern comes from Chicago and while they have been operating in New York but a short time they have gotten the jump on most of the vaudeville proucers here in putting thru this deal with the Shuberts.

J.D. VANCE’S ATTACK ON AMERICANS WHO WORK

As he hones his Republican political ambitions, Vance gets more and more overtly hostile to working Americans, natch.

Speaking to “journalist” Steve Doucy on Fox “News, Vance goes full class warfare against any attempt by the White House to provide support for Americans, who are, unlike Vance, not wealthy.

Non-wealthy Americans, are, according to Vance, not “normal.”
Vance’s loathing of Americans who work is particularly barbed when it comes to women who work.

THE GRUBBY GREED OF JAMIE DIMON

Is there anything as pathologically cheap as an oligarch?

Jamie Dimon insists that he gets to decide where his tax dollars go before he pays them.

I wish I could. I’d refuse to pay for any more socialist subsidies to Dimon and his oligarch buddies.

Why does the corporate media pay such breahtless attention to what a marginal, subversive crackpot like Dimon says?

ELON MUSK IS A MONSTER

When it comes to the mindless worship of wealth, Americans take a back seat to no other country on Planet Earth.

On the other hand, while Saturday Night Live may want to whitewash Musk’s greed and abuse, Robert Reich refuses to.

THE MURDOCHS HAVE TUCKER CARLSON’S BACK

They are totally on board with his message of hate, public-health sabotage, treasonous incitement, and class warfare waged by oligarchs.

The Murdochs share with Carlson a complete contempt for Fox viewers.

The Daily Beast peers under the stone and finds putrid and systemic moral decay:

“‘The Murdochs love him,’ one former Fox News personality said. ‘Like them, he is a rich, prep school kid born with a silver spoon who traffics in populism while living in an expensive ivory tower and never meeting in real life the people he gins up for ratings.’”
