Forget gold fronts, gold caps, or gold 'grills', a gold tongue is where it's at:

Archaeologists have found a 2,000-year-old mummy with a gold tongue at an ancient Egyptian site called Taposiris Magna. 

 

Embalmers perhaps placed the golden tongue on the mummy to ensure that the deceased would be able to speak in the afterlife, the Egyptian antiquities ministry said in a statement released Jan 29.

Nothing personal Chris, sometimes if a pun is there I'll point it out. 😎

I think you may've liked my dad.  He said Regan got it right in 79 by ordering all of the Whitehouse staff to get haircuts and stop wearing jeans, get a suit and tie on.

You'd definitely like my mother, she wants a world free of political correctness.  She says that Trump is "great".  Every time Pelosi is on TV my mother throws insults at the TV.

Perhaps you mean St. Ronald of California? If so, his last name was "Reagan".

Is Nancy Pelosi actually on British TV often? I don't think British pols make it onto US TV too often, if ever. But then i haven't had access to TV in more than a decade, so maybe i'm mistaken here.

I doubt very much that the average American conservative has any idea who Keir Starmer is (for any Americans wondering, he is the Nancy Pelosi of the UK).

Dear old dom - I can think of no one else here that would point out and correct a perfectly obvious typo (apart from @wellbredwellread) - and then proceed to get it wrong again anyway!

@ignant666 Keir Starmer is the Leader of the (Labour) Opposition, so I suppose in terms of American equivalence this would now be Donald Trump, if he is still leader of he Republican party (which he was, the last i heard).  Nancy Pelosi's equivalent here would be the Speaker of the House of Commons (who used to be the bumptious John Bercow, not sure who it is at the moment)- she has mainly (only, I think!) appeared on television in the UK in the context of the rather entertaining exchanges which used to take place between her and the Donald.  (But then I don't have a tv either, and only catch up via iplayer etc.)

Are you kiddin'?  There's always a section on American politics, practically every night especially the last four years.

I want my mummy.

You have just witnessed AEgyptian Archaeology turn into politics. This is a natural tendency.

It was five or six decades ago that I noticed this tendency. We would have frequent conversations (with initiates and common folk alike). Long chats. Always about metaphysics. Inevitably (that means "always"), the conversations would move from the abstract notions into practical applications. As soon as that happened, some form of police/politics/gov/law would be evoked.

I saw the tendency, even back then before some of you were born and before any of you set your right or left foot upon the Path. I would remark, "These conversations always end up in political discussion." I repeated that enough that I came to see it is an universal principle ... like gravity.

But back then (mid to late '60s), there was not so much tendency for argument or debate to arise. The discussions were along the lines of "Them versus Us."  That is, we were us, and they were the gov; it didn't matter which party - we wanted to be free of the gov.

Today, fifty-five years later, the discussions still tend to drop onto the physical plane, but when they land there is the usual dispute, but folks take pro and con stances toward the gov - one side or another. The third side is disregarded ("us" versus "any" gov).

Is there a gov? I'm against it! (see Book of Lies). 

I would return the conversation to mummies, but I read the lingual aurum aegyptorum article on BBC even before you posted it, and found no meaningful reference to drag the multilogue out of the mud.

However, I did note that these golden-tongued remnants came from (only) 2,000 years ago. That's rather recent in mummy-time, isn't it?

I believe it is recent - the statues found at the site look very Greco-Roman in style for sure.

JB: My Starmer=Pelosi analogy was based on them each being the head of the left party, and the fact that Boris obviously =Trump with an education. Arguably the top Dem could be Chuck Schumer, except no one much cares about old Chuck, and everyone (except Shiva) either adores, or despises, "Nancy Smash". No one wanted to execute Schumer when the lunatics took over the asylum.

David: Now that Joe is going to make politics boring again, you may see less US politics on TV there. Trump was like crack for the media, they are all in withdrawal now.

Really?  Maybe see my last post here; 

Fascism takes root in 3 simple steps. – Page 3 – Stuff – LAShTAL.COM Forum

 

I copy/pasted from the index of Wilhelm Reich's Mass Psychology of Fascism.  In short, "Trumpism" isn't about one individual i.e. orange coloured ex TV personality.  No, that is just the head of the snake, the mouth-piece.  Look at all of the angry lower middle-class Americans out there who have hope in Cruz, Rubio and the likes of Taylor Greene.   The GOP are still sucking up to that angry (generally WASPish for some reason) lower middle-class "base".   The GOP will become an alt-right party or it will expel the Big Lie loonies and then the crazy base will force the formation of a third party.

Well, maybe. We shall see. But there will be less to put on TV in the near future.

You have the class structure of Trumpismo way wrong though ("angry lower middle-class Americans")- folks who can travel to the capital on a weekday (the Insurrection was on a Wednesday), and stay in a DC hotel the night before, and night of, are by no means "lower middle-class". "Lower middle-class" folks have to be at work on a Wednesday.

Recall that a big Trump thing was the "boat parades". Those were great big boats, mostly in the $250-500k range, not dudes in little fishing boats. Trump's base was slightly-rich guys who like to pretend to be rednecks, not actual rednecks. Actual rednecks spend their money on liquor, drugs, ammo, and gas, not fancy-ass boats, or traveling to riots.

I admit i have taken your political bait here, but really this stuff is not well-suited to this forum. There are just endless forums, and other online venues, for discussing Us politics, join some of them.

The rioters?  1 in 5 were lower level public servants ex-cops or disgruntled ex army.  Y'know people who will most likely identify with The State, the nation, the country.   The "bas" is self-made men running some sort of business and they cannot compete with massive corporations.  The pandemic and the economic crisis combined has made them madder.  

 

This guy is a welder and pipe-fitter;

....no, the "base" is not upper middle class.  This guy underneath, ex-firefighter. Image result for rioter perlosi desk

 

 

Ok fair enough this a Crowley forum, he had a lot to say about this sort of thing though so ...not relevant?
