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.

Snowflakes

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 …

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, …

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 …

Bibi

We proudly say we support Israel because it’s the only democracy in the Middle East. Maybe, but they elected a Bigoted Fascist War Criminal (oh, he commits more mundane crimes like Bribery, Extortion, and Self Dealing too for which he’s under Indictment). I hope they lock him up in Spandau next to the Nazis.

Older Than Shia v. Sunni

People forget how old the Empires of the Mideast and Fertile Crescent are.

Contingency Plans

June 4, 1940 Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight …

A Red Line

It is still not uncommon for recent immigrants and those who share other cultural commonalities like language (Little Italy), interests and hobbies (Florida and other planned communities), religion (all over the Midwest), or region of origin (again Florida where there are belts of people from Michigan or New Jersey) to gather in separate geographic enclaves. …
