Clouds part. The sun shines down. Obama leads us from the dark ages into the promised land. Hallelujah! Everybody join hands now – wait – hand sanitizer first – ok – join hands and sing praise Obama.
It was lead pipes in Roman times that caused the mass insanity. What do you suppose it is this time?
Obama is hailed as a post-racial Messiah ~ The New Republic, Maybe We Can’t. The black case for Obama-skepticism. by Cinque Henderson Wednesday, May 28, 2008
So much of the educated white people’s love for Barack depends on educated white people’s complete ignorance of and distance from the rest of us. Barack is the black person they want the rest of us to be–half-white and loving, or “racially transcendent,” as the press loves to call him. And, since picking a candidate makes you allies with his other supporters, why would I want to be allies with educated whites whose glorification of Barack depends in large part on their implicit denigration of the rest of us? ~ The New Republic, Maybe We Can’t.

Neighbors bitching because you never decorate with lights? Or, did they mock
your half-assed efforts at a holiday display last year? Let us decorate your
house with a light show that’s certain to make them think twice before giving
you a hard time ever again.
Tell us your story. Really. We want to hear it. Our revenge experts will
analyze your situation and design a light show that can be seen from space.
We’ll even set the timer for you. All you’ll have to do is set it so it will
shine into your neighbors' bedroom window or some other revenge expert
recommended locale and you’re good to go. We recommend you leave on vacation
before this sucker kicks on.
Please include a few snapshots of your home for us so we can determine maximum
effect. Sizes and prices vary according to customer needs. You probably can’t
afford it, but you can’t afford not to buy this light display if your
neighbors are anything like ours.
Please send us a few pictures of your home, your address, political leanings and
those of your neighbors, and tell us a bit about last years holiday display
disaster. Don’t get carried away. We are not here to sympathize. We are here
to help you get even.
Once we’ve looked it over, we’ll give you a call with our design specifications
and a quote.

are powered by lithium long-life batteries so power outages (possibly caused by
your light display) will not lose your timer settings.

the situation is warranted
Tale behind it: I and my neighbors

If only Romney and the elites had gone after Obama the way they are going after Trump. This is unbelievable. I wanted Ben Carson. Everyone said they wanted an honorable, honest, intellent candidate. Clearly they wanted a freak show instead. But the Republican party is now a servant of the Democratic party. Gutless wonders willing to destroy themselves completely, now, rather than see Trump win the nomination. Procedures and rules no longer matter.
This is a blood bath.
It’s over. Get ready for another four years watching Bill get blow jobs from interns in the Oval office.
Sometime after the second election of President Obama I suspect many of us blogging got a glimpse of the very bad future rolling out across the country and the globe. Many of us stopped talking politics of any kind, anywhere. You know why? Because many of us remember our moms telling us to never argue with idiots lest people not be able to tell which person is the idiot. That niggled about in the back of my head for weeks as I watched well educated people saying the stupidest things, but then it took a darker turn when I realized they are actually just crazy as sprayed roaches and genuinely despise conservatives enough to want us dead. I mean really dead. They aren’t into arguing. They don’t want to win us to their way of thinking. They aren’t capable of actually making a rational point any more.
What I see out on the blogs and Facebook is genuine insanity. So. I leave it alone.
When someone tells me they are white but identify as black and the argue the “experience of being black” (Not Rachel D., this syndrome is quite common amongst liberals), I drop the discussion and block them from seeing me.
When someone argues that “It’s just so cool how BO jets everywhere to play golf in deserts”, where states are gasping for their last drop of water, and The Michelle Entourage is jetting around the globe changing $2000 dresses by the hour for appearances, “Such a style icon”, I drop the discussion and block them from seeing me.
Gun control. Climate Change. Racism. Triggers. Micro-aggressions. ISIS. Iran and the Bomb. Anti-Israel. “Faux News” … blocked. Double Blocked.
I believe I have effectively walled off 2/3rds of the online population, not because I disagree with their views, but because they are genuinely insane.
I follow gardening, cooking, writing, fountain pen collectors, romance novelists which stay off the political train, and tons and tons of cat groups … but even the damned cat groups are political sometimes and I have to drop them as they turn rabid.
I was doing all that on auto pilot, until I re-read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
The sun burnt every day. It burnt Time . . . Time was busy burning the years and the people anyway, without any help from him. So if he burnt things with the firemen and the sun burnt Time, that meant that everything burnt!
We are hiding from the lunatics, burning time in “forest camps” just trying to hold on until they blow it all apart. Most of us are offline, reconnecting with the things that matter in our own homes, or what’s left of our homes.
The President has been taking Sheen’s course on Winning. Very entertaining. That speech yesterday? Winning! Not talking to Mitch McConnell for six years? Winning! Making it a certainty the your party may never recover in your lifetime? Winning! I feel a game of golf and some Michael Jordan smack talk coming on.
Two Quotes just after the Obama election:
Markos Moulitsas Zúniga
“…we have an imperative to take advantage of a historic opportunity to break the conservative movement’s backs and crush their spirits.”
Glen Greenwald – Salon
” The most important aspect of this Tuesday’s election is to finalize their humiliating repudiation and to bury them for what they’ve done.”
So. Pardon me for this but fuck both of you Markos and Glen.
That is all. :-)
For the past several months I have been slammed by spam. I manage many websites and this is the only one being hit, so it’s essentially a denial of service type abuse. Politics. What can you do. Pundit and Pundette is completely neutralized and so are many of the conservative blogs of old. This past decade has been the most vicious and aggressive time in my experience politically. Just to spite these asshats I should blog more often. As Breitbart said, If you are taking flack you must be over the target.
