All In!

Here is a reaction to the election by a friend of mine, Philip Quinn, an American who has been living abroad for many years. The bad formatting is mine. I copied and pasted from an email and I am kind of artless. Sorry.

“The election was decided by single women (24 percent of the electorate) who
want to fuck without consequence, and if a consequence occurs, snuff it out.
That, and the trillion-dollar stimulus-pork campaign fund. Next question.

No sooner is the election over than comes a revelation about a gal named
Broad-well who writes a fawning bio entitled ‘All In’ — not even the most
fervid pornographic imagination could make this up — while having an affair
with the general. But wait, as they say on the late-night tv commercials —
there’s more! A third woman, not the general’s wife, was being threatened by
this Broad-well broad. And they’re emailing each other on a gmail account.

What is it about girls named Paula? At least Paula Jones stuck by her man,
proving that trailer-park trash had a higher moral code than Clinton, who did
nothing to spring her from jail. Presidential pardons were reserved for crooks like Marc Rich.

The key tryout for Paula B was a run with the general. He ran faster, but they were both out of breath. Considering the general’s future in public office, the second edition of Broad-well’s book might have a revised title: ‘Dead Heat’.

Looks like this story will have legs.”


About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Why those trollops! Toss in all the married strumpets who want to fuck without consequence and the numbers get pretty big. Then there are the men who want to fuck these slatterns without consequence and apparently you have an electoral majority.

    Jacques, see if you can persuade Mr. Quinn to make a post. You mention that he lives outside of the U.S. and in the earlier unedited version he stated that he was considering renouncing his U.S. citizenship. I’m very curious as to where he lives and which society he finds so superior to America.

    • Mr Quinn is the virginal type. He does not want to divulge more personal information because he thinks that the two pieces on my blog are not well finished enough. He fears that they may not be good for the reputation of his virtuousness, not because of content but because of form.

      To my knowledge, he has not stated that he finds any country better than the US. As you know, people live in different countries for different reasons. I, for example, will continue to live in the US, in California, specifically, even if the country I love disappears before my eyes. (I am thinking of it as melting.) I will do so because I have serious physical difficulties with the short winter days of Europe, where I come from. Any other location at a similar latitude I can think of is too primitive or somehow not open to me. I fantasize about Singapore but if I found a lady there to sponsor me, my own wife would probably shoot me in the airport lobby as I was leaving. (She is a narrow-minded woman with little humor.)

      Your response to Mr Qunn is self-absorbed, anti-intellectual, and kind of mindless. For millions of Americans, abortion is not a simple surgical procedure but murder, not “like murder” but literally murder. I don’t share their perspective but don’t think it’s, intellectually decent to make light of anyone’s revulsion against murder. As you probably know infanticide used to be common. Were people who had a horror of the practice and who denounced it ridiculous? This is a real question.

      What do you make of the fact that your own enlightened attitude has regressed in the US for more than twenty years? What do you make of the fact that more and more people oppose the practice of abortion as it spreads?

      To finish: Although, I believe what Pres. Clinton believe, like Mr Quin, I think that abortion is a tragic choice. As I have written repeatedly, there are satisfactory sexual practices for women that do not involve the only act, the single act, that may result in pregnancy. I too believe sex is very important, notwithstanding the deep intellectuals with famous Hollywood names and disordered lives who simplistically stereotype conservatives.

      I suspect Mr Quinn monitors this blog. He may decide to answer Terry himself. Obviously, my ability to speak in his stead is limited.

      • Terry Amburgey says:

        Mr. Quinn starts by condemning birth control, abortion is secondary … unless the ‘consequence’ of fucking he’s so concerned about is sexually transmitted disease and the ‘snuffing out’ of the consequence is anti-biotics and anti-virals. Your readers can decide for themselves what he was complaining about. To my mind opposing birth control and abortion is the height of stupidity but then I’m not a theocrat. What is your opinion of birth control Jacques? Should it be legal but rare? Does it merely enable single sluts to ‘fuck without consequence’?

        I apologize for my assumption about Mr. Quinn renouncing his American citizenship. I should know better. I have lived in Canada for a long time now but I’m not a Canadian citizen. I guess I could renounce my citizenship and become a stateless person without a passport.

  2. Terry, Terry! Don’t come after me out of frustration that Mr Quinn is ignoring you. I don’t think I have said anything about birth control, abortion, or even about sluts (yours or mine, you or me) that you would take exception to.
