(straight from the stickynote..please forgive the run-on sentences, it was a very ‘stream-of-consciousness’ thing) A cartoon musical number where Donald Trump and Eric/Don Jr/etc. are there as kids asking what they should do since they won’t be able to afford some extravagant thing if the bank loan rate is that high, and Donald burst out […]

The optics would be perfect.
Musk has apparently gone full-on troll against Wikipedia. It’s really sad to see somebody who has done so much for scientific progress stoop so low in his public interactions. I’m honestly ashamed I ever looked up to him as an entrepreneur and cheered my son on years back to write a school report on of […]

“Begin with criticism, then you go to protest, then you go to impeachment, now you go to indictment, and none of them work. I mean what’s next?“ Uhm, I’m sorry – “none of them work” ? It’s working. You’re just fucking scared because we haven’t given up yet, and things are finally coming to a […]
Listening to David Bowie’s “China Girl” this morning reminded me that I wanted to make a post about prejudice. I have a pretty simple explanation as to why prejudice is such a trigger/hot topic these days. It wasn’t such an issue not that long ago, right? People at least *somewhat* freely joked about it to […]
I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Time to usher this new moon in right.
There is no yin without yang, up without down, left without right or North without South. With this in mind, please know that cultural polarization is a strong weapon that keeps us all fearful and in line.
I think 50% of people hold words to be ultimately accountable. I think the other 50% hold intention to be ultimately accountable.
TIL what a Demagogue is.

To conquer a people, you simply need to eliminate what binds them together: mutual trust, cooperation and love. Once these are gone, it’s simply a matter of directing them to serve your selfish fucking purpose under a guise of hope to get back to where they were before you infected them in the first place.
Both sides want peace. Both sides want prosperity. Both sides want freedom. Why are we pointing fingers at each other? I feel like we’re all being led to this grande climactic point in time when the light bulbs come on and everyone is shown through this fantastic narrative that, “See? We’re all the same – […]
Will he just fucking die already?
If this U.S. midterm election has shown us anything, it’s that representation is in almost _perfect balance_. I think that’s something to be proud and hopeful of. There’s a lot we have to work on; mutual understanding, respect for the rule of law and due process, empathy, honor, conviction… but balance is key to a […]
I wonder what huge mega-corp proprietary software vendors think about when they see volunteers making software in their “free time” as their biggest threat?
Democrats have been blamed for high inflation but I find it “interesting” that the fallout from the complete mismanagement of Covid-19 in the U.S. during the Trump presidency isn’t even considered a factor. It seems painfully obvious to me that the long term impacts of that as well as everything else that was mismanaged and/or […]
Fake/bot Facebook accounts that friend hundreds of millions of people that are “friends of friends” and just *occasionally* about pro-Trump propaganda. Like a slow drip. Happened to me a few times already. Smells like the work of Banon or one of his slaves. At any rate, fuck you.
How to get away with cheating – the MAGA Republican way Step 1: Accuse others of doing the same thing, loudly and ad nauseam. Pay no attention to evidence, facts or reality – nobody cares. Step 2: If you get caught, deny it. See step 1 re: evidence. Use the legal system to drag it […]
This is about religion, not politics.
“Let’s go Brandon” is a popular phrase among the alt right because they feel they’re getting away with saying “Fuck you Biden” without actually saying, “Fuck you Biden”. Because that would actually require, you know…balls.
It is easier to control people by appealing to their worst qualities rather than their best.
I feel like major news outlets today try to keep Biden in check by reiterating what he claimed he would do when he was put in office last year and how he’s fallen short so far. Good.
Theory: Hard-right conservatives and Trump supporters accuse Biden of characteristics that Trump demonstrated while in office even though they bear no relation to Biden in reality. I believe they’re doing this as a subconscious action or reflex of suppressing their fear and self-admittance to having supported Trump, given the fallout and continued mountain of evidence […]
“You have an opinion, that’s great. But here’s data.” – L0pht (Defcon speaker, unknown date)
Some people are swung by the will of a nation.
Kamala Harris was the president of the United States for a short time today while Biden got his butt examined. She’s the first woman to ever be president of the United States, even if temporarily. It’s a historic day for America, and for once in a very long time that’s a good thing.
