The oppression of Stupidity

Stupidity is the most powerful force in the universe. History proves this.

Toxic Train Wreck - G+ Comm

Come hang out in "Being Liberal on G+" - more effective at killing brain cells than alcohol, because those brain cells either get trapped in a mindless echo chamber of rwNJ feel-good soundbite solutions, or the brain cells commit suicide to escape the mind-numbing Stupid - whichever.

It's like a fucking toxic-fume spewing train wreck I can't seem to stay away from.

rwNJ flogging points - so boring

It's probably good for my health that G+ is coming to an end.

(secondary source / comments section, assuming it survives the death of G+)

Moral relativism

I'm tired of hearing:

“It's okay that Trump is a liar, because Clinton was, too.”

NO. It's not okay that either of them were liars. 

To claim "It's okay when my guy lies," is moral relativism, and bullshit.

Lying is either wrong, or it isn't.
(Hint: It's wrong.)

This isn't rocket surgery.

Rambling West

Kanye West and James Woods are perfect examples of why people say "celebrities should just shut up and be entertaining."

Yes, they absolutely have a right to say whatever the fuck the want. That doesn't mean what they have to say is meaningful or even coherent. In the case of Woods, it is coherent, but conflated fantasy bullshit, so actually has negative value to the world.

The only not-classified-as-insane person I've heard ramble more incoherently than West is Donald Trump. (Ironically another example of a celebrity who ought to have shut up and just stuck with entertaining).

Why I am generous

Thankfully, I've never actually been homeless, but I have had times where I had to live with someone else, when I would much rather have had my own home. I learned to share, because it could be me.

I'm also a big tipper. Not because I'm wealthy, but because I know that even small compliments - small kindnesses - can go a long way.

The Right Way to Protest

Protest makes people uncomfortable. No one wants to be uncomfortable. Protest points out that something is wrong, somewhere.

Sometimes, the wrong is real, other times it's imagined.  This history of the United States is absolutely rift with racial bias.

In the begining, there was the genocide of the Native Americans.
Then we had the import of brown-skinned people as slaves.
White people even expressed racism against other white people.

Funny thing, you know, those "anti-darkie" immigration laws keeping white people out of the country.

The right way to protest is non-violence. Gandhi, for all his creepy faults, lead the country of India in non-violent protest against the British government, and the Indians regained control of their own country - peacefully and without gun-fetished war that would have resulted in tens or hundreds of thousands more deaths.

Trump is the Ultimate Troll

President Trump (barf in my mouth) flapping his gums on television. He is literally the ultimate interweb troll.  Lies, misdirection, self-congratulation, misrepresentation, distortion, constantly making everyone else out to be the villain, and ultimately _always playing to the audience_, simply using everyone else as the "straight man" for his talking points of the moment.  No wonder I loathe the man.

American Values: Guns over Education

"We should have more guns in schools."
"We should allow college students to carry guns on campus."
"We need to cut teacher salaries."
"We need to cut public school funding."

THESE are not bullshit headlines.  They're fucking American "values."
Americans - as a national class of idiots - have their priorities screwed up.

Summarize why Judge Kavanaugh should not be on SCOTUS

Just in case you've been living under a rock, a man named Brett Kavanaugh, who worked for President George W. Bush (2001-2009), has been nomiated by President Trump (barf in my mouth) (2017-?) to be a Supreme Court Justice.

Judge Kavanaugh - from the small percentage of his public records that have not been suppressed by various agents - is an anti-America corportist jerk.

If your best defense of Harry is:

“Yeah, well, Thom and Dick are axe murderers, TOO,”

Then you might want to rethink why you are even defending Harry.

11-Sept-2001 - We Remember

We Remember. 

There was a time, for a few days, where the entire fucking planet was united in horror, united in solidarity, and united in recognizing we are all human

We Remember this to honor those who died on 11-Sept-2001, and all those who have died since because of 11-Sept-2001.

Mock the MAGA

Fuck it.  Those MAGA snowflakes burned civility to the ground, so I no longer have any compunctions about mocking them a little bit.  (And still way less than the deserve.)
