A Thanksgiving’s interlude in the Autumn of my years~with a young Italian grand niece~who thinks herself a woman~


A woman?

You say to me that you are a woman~~

You a silly, brainless little child~~

Not even a girl~~

A woman~~Hah!!~~

Now come over here~~

To me~~

I  am old enough to pretend to be a woman, Sir~~and it’s Thanksgiving~~all sorts happen Thanksgiving~~

I have seen many a Thanksgiving Day, child~~many a one~~

Where are your clothes?~~

I thought you’d like me better without, Sir~~

Come closer~~

Look in my eyes~~

And Listen~~closely~~

To me~~

Look into my face~~

Memorize the entire terrain~~

Never forget it~~

When you see it again~~

Flee from it~~

In horror~~

Now memorize this~~

Sear it into it into your little child’s brain~~

There are two types of men in this world~~

Which types, Sir~~


The sort of men who will use you~~

And the sort of men you can use~~

I am ~~

The first sort~~

Memorize this~~

Flee from me~~

In horror~~

The second sort of man is the sort who you can use~~

Flee to him~~

At great speed~~

The first is the sort of man who is said to be most common~~

That is an error~~

We are numerous~~

My sort~~

But far less numerous than the second sort~~

So, Sir~~I am to leave here now and seek out a man of this second sort?~~

Smart girl~~

Sterling Girl~~

Brilliant girl~~

Now leave immediately~~


Don’t you favor me, Sir~~even a little~~

Even though I am a little girl~~

I can pretend to be a woman~~please?~~


If I were younger perhaps~~

But I am not~~

Thank God~~

So~~leave and remember your little lesson of today~~

Must I go, Sir~~



And put on your clothes~~

Go and find  a man who you can use~~

Now go and find your mother~~

She is likely drinking~~

That’s all she does I hear these days~~

Now go off to find your drunken mother and remember~~

You now know far, far more than she ever did~~or will~~about men~~

Uncle Giovanni~~

Yes, my child~~

Just what do you do?



Yes~~do you have an occupation?~~

What the devil is that?

You know~a job~~

A job…~~

A job…~~

A job…~~

Oh, that, heavens no~~


Yes uncle~~

If I’d been a girl~~


If I had taken up an occupation I think I would have been a swell whore.~~

A high-priced one, Uncle?~~

No dear~~

A very cheap one~~

Right off the boulevard~~


Yes, dear, I think had I worked I would have been an exceptionally good, cheap whore~~

Or perhaps a President instead~~

If I’d failed at that higher calling~~

But I would not have failed~~at the higher calling~~you see~~that is as~~

I’ve all the makings of a truly fine, cheap, whore~~

And, that is not an easy thing to be good at dear~~

Why not uncle~~it seems so easy~~

You wait~~you’re just a child~~

You’ll soon get to find out sweet~~

Now~~off with you to mommy~~


~~The principal need in America is the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~


~~Bene Nati, Bene Vestiti, Et Mediocriter Docti~~

~~La crema y nata~~

~~Artista de la conquista~~



 ~~In sunshine and in shadow~~I hold tight to the Republican view of time and money~~I write night and day~~yet~~while impecunious~~I am vastly overpaid~~in that taking pay to do what I love is unfair~~to my employer~~in a fair system~~under such circumstances~~I should pay him~~not he me~~I am far, far too old a man to be sexually confused~~praise Jesus~~but I am yet young enough to be politically confused~~is anyone not~~in an absolute sense~~I am a Catholic Royalist~~in a practical sense~~I am a Classical Liberal~~a Gaullist~~a Bonapartist~~an American Nationalist  Republican~~in either sense~~my head is soon for the chopping block~~to hasten my interlude with Madame La Guillotine~~I write without fear~and without favor of~any man~~ 

 Non Sibi~~

Finis Origine Pendet~~

 ~~Κύριε ἐλέησον~~

Rejoice and Glad!!

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
French actor~~Alain Delon
