I feel much better now. I really do.

Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error. I don’t feel too threatened by Artificial Intelligence because it’s not. …

All Russia, All The Time

I’m not as alarmed as some because the U.S. System is so screwed up that even the major native Political Parties (Democrats since 1828 and Andy Jackson, they’ve really backed some reprehensible people and policies; and Republicans since 1854 and John C. Frémont, ironic they’re the modern face of Racism) can’t get it right. I’ve …

The Grand Bargaineers

Damn right we want a Revolution. As Atrios puts it (a bit more colorfully than I) not cutting the Entitlements you’ve been paying for your whole life in order to give the money to Billionaires is Revolutionary! Lennon was being sincere. I think it an ironic reminder of a better time. The Hidden History of …

What Color Is Your Sky Again?

Plaid eh? Well, that’s a large piece of patterned cloth worn as a Kilt, a Cloak or Shawl, a kind of Toga like thing, or used as a blanket. You mean Tartan. You know it’s a fiction popularized by Queen Victoria, kind of like Cowboys and Indians here in the U.S. (admittedly with more complexity …

Lizard People And Weasels

Somewhere outside of Barstow… Still in my snowy advance base (-9 where I am, how ’bout you?) I hit the road today for a meeting in the balmy southern climes where I will overnight and then run some errands before returning with supplies. I’ll be a digital wayfarer with only my micro setup so it’s …

Nux Infans Delenda Est!

You heard the lady, Nuke it from Orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.


It’s a semi polite way to call people worthless weaklings who are extremely oversensitive because they know their arguments are fallacious crap and are filled with self doubt and dubiety since neither their logic or their lives will withstand scrutiny. If that describes you then maybe you shouldn’t be doing this whole Internet debate thing …

What seems like a generic campaign …

Move Over Joe Biden

These Republican Lite ConservaDems are just a laugh factory. Uncle Joe is losing mojo to Mayo Mike not just in the Polls, but also in the contest for 2020 Gaffe (Gaffe defined as accidentally telling the Truth as opposed to politely lying about what you really think) Champion. Seriously Mike, Farmers and Factory Workers? There …

Medicare For All!

John Oliver is finally back and he kicks off with a piece about ‘Medicare For All’. He correctly points out at least 2 major points, one of which is ‘Medicare’ is kind of a misnomer because that program leaves out a lot of Health Services and requires Co-Pays while ‘Medicaid’, the one it most resembles, …

The Barr Letter

February 16, 2020, Medium We, the undersigned, are alumni of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) who have collectively served both Republican and Democratic administrations. Each of us strongly condemns President Trump’s and Attorney General Barr’s interference in the fair administration of justice. As former DOJ officials, we each proudly took an oath to …

Not A Rant

Merely confirmation bias. Lucien is always kind of ranty and not necessarily a reliable narrator. He may say he’s never used this particular metaphor before but I can think of at least a half dozen other occasions off the top of my head. But I’ve been there for years and as Europeans laugh (out of …
