Snarky political comment of the day #8.

Pssst, hey, dummy, over here.

If you, and your fellow goobers would stop preaching against things like, say, lesbian spanking, then, you could watch all the lesbian spanking you wanted without guys like me laughing and pointing at you.

Think of all the fun you could have if your job wasn't being a hypocrite.

Just think of it.

Free yourselves. Read More......

Snarky political comment of the day #7

Culture war?

What culture war?

The people picking the fight have no fucking culture.

I mean, once you've taken away everything they've fucking stolen, like Rock N' Roll, and Thomas Paine.

Even their precious Fox News is a fucking ripoff of CNN, they never create anything.

Where's their culture? Where is it?

Y'know what? Bring it on.
Bring this war on.
Face to face, not these skulking little guerrilla actions where you just lie your fucking asses off.
Let's see what culture you have on offer.
Bring it.
Rather than trying to destructively roll back the 60's, show us what you've actually got.
You'll be left standing with your pricks in your hands when everyone sees all you have on offer is Anne Coulter, and Kidz Bop.
Oh, and that awful evil boring Bible of yours.

Liberals, weirdos, misfits, and minorities created your whole fucking little world, right down to the little suits you wear.

Y'know, the four groups of people you fucking hate so much.

Hey, think I'm mean for pointing out what creativity-less pathetic hypocritical lame zombies you are?

Don't pick a fight, and call it a war, and not have anything to back it up, and then punk out on it.

Savagery, lies, and cowardice, that's their culture.
That's what they've got.

Culture war my ass.
It's a fucking rout.

Techie update.

Added an improved "recent comments", gadget under "friends blogs", and above "blog archive". Read More......

A big fucking deal about "a big fucking deal".

Oh, here we go with this shit again.
Thought we'd wrestled past this constipated social conservative horseshit back in the 80's, but I guess every generation or two needs a reminder.

All right, some lame dweeby little teenagers are in a tizzy about Joe Biden's "this is a big fucking deal", line, and the media has picked up on it.


Here's the official site of these kids....


Anyway, okay, here goes...

First, out to my usual audience, isn't it bad enough, that these fucking uptight, backwards, frightened, superstitious, doctrinaire, and ultimately authoritarian people hide behind children?
Now they're literally putting kids on the front line of their culture war bullshit.


Okay, now to you kiddies out there, time for Unca' Dickynoo to take you to school.
Apparently, the actual schools aren't doing it, so the weary burden falls to me...

Let's break down why you think there's a big fucking deal about "a big fucking deal".

"Fucking", right?

Well, what thought is conveyed by that word?


Sex makes babies, so sex is the source of life, so, what's bad about the source of life?

And isn't sex a big deal in a relationship?

And isn't sex in a relationship a really big deal when the couple decides to produce a rugrat from their coupling?

Wouldn't you say it's one of the biggest deals there is?

Couldn't one in fact say, it's a big fucking deal?

So, could we not apply that as a unit of measurement to other big deals?

Well, let's look at health care then.

According to some stats, several thousand Americans drop dead a day for lack of it.

Seems like a big fucking deal to me.

Indeed a much huger deal than an individual act of fucking, or the utterance of the word "fuck".

So, let's say this health care bill does what they say it will, and it'll stop a good chunk of those thousands from dropping dead.

I'd say that would be a big fucking deal too.

Again, a huger deal than an individual act of fucking, or the utterance of the word "fuck".

In fact, I'd dare say, a bigger deal than all the acts of fucking currently going on in the world.

Because, with more people alive, there will be more fucking, and more children.

People that wouldn't even exist, if not for Obama's stroke of a pen.

Some of those people who will now survive, might in fact be your future wives and husbands.
Therefore, those future unborn people might be your own children, children.

Big fucking deal?

I'd say so.

And that's exactly the language to describe it.

"Bad language"? Are you fucking kidding me?

Here's a secret kids, there's no such thing as "bad language".

It's the thoughts being conveyed by the language.

Politicos, pundits, and yes, clergymen, say far more horrible and morally reprehensible, and indeed, evil things all the time, without uttering so much as "damn", or even "poo-poo".

Does the welcoming of healthcare reform fall under that level of cold-blooded straight faced moral filth?

Um...I don't think so.

Time to start growing up, kids.

And part of that, is learning that the authority figures in charge of you, including your parents, and especially your teachers, might in fact, be wrong.
In fact, they might be flat out bullshitting you.

And hell, that might include Obama and Biden for all I know.

But, one thing's for sure, whether health care reform turns out to be good, or horrific, one thing it certainly is, is a big fucking deal.

A much bigger deal than "fuck".

And the last thing we need, at cruxes of history like this, is the language police coming back.

Whether they have the haggard jowls of old age, or the trusting idealistic bright eyed doey face of youth.

Language is an instrument, nothing more, it's all in what you use it for.
Saying there's "bad language", or "bad words", is like saying there are certain knives in the kitchen that are "bad".

Okay, throw out the "bad", knives, but then try to carve a turkey, or peel an exotic vegetable someday when they're gone.

Or, try to describe fair-and-square honest-to-goodness big fucking deals, without "fuck".

We need all our instruments.

None of them are bad.

Anyone who tells you otherwise, is on the bullshit brigade.

And try calling bullshit what it truly is without "bullshit".

That one's really important to have in the toolkit.

Especially in America.

You'll see, kiddies, you'll see.

Snarky political comment of the day #5

Celebrity edition.

"He was all girl".
-Gore Vidal referring to William F. Buckley. Read More......

Anyhoo, back to the war on bullshit.

Here's an excellent podcast on dissonance theory.

Clicky linky.

This is exactly why tyrants like Silvio Berlusconi see themselves as poor put upon little victims.

This is exactly why The Fuggin' Pope can sleep at night protecting the cadre of child rapists, and issues moronic little statements that paint the church as the victim of "secularism".

This is exactly why, in general when you have a debate with religionists, especially ones who's job security relies on that stuff, and you point out the ugly bits of religion, you tend to get back a sniveling victimhood response, and a sweeping under the rug of the mentioned offenses.

This is exactly how cosmic douches like John Edward can not only sleep at night, but actually think they're helping people.

This is exactly why when you point up totalitarian censorship, the shady governments in question get their little backs up, and paint you the villain.
Baffling as it is, they actually have it in their little noggin that they're the good guys.

Shit, this is even how/why you had actual Nazis with their jaws jutted, and playing self-righteous at the Nuremberg trials.

This is exactly why even with the rubble crumbling down around them, the people in charge of our economy were in denial.
Some still are.
One nutted up, and admitted he was wrong, so, that's something.

This is exactly why authority figures in general have trouble admitting they're wrong, including courts, which is backed up by the jarring number of convictions that are being overturned by DNA evidence.

And this is even how people stubbornly bullshit themselves into serving against their own interests even in the face of glaring evidence.

This is something the brain does, and we have to watch out for it.

It'd be nice if we could find a scientific way to nip it in the bud before the wrong people gained power.

Lotta bad history has been written that way. Read More......

Snarky political comment of the day #4.

Pssst, hey, Chinese...

...Tianamen square.

It happened.

Your government sucks, and isn't your friend.

Also, here's a rant on Communism.

Disagree with it if you want, but we're allowed to say this stuff over here.

We're allowed to disagree too.

Why aren't you?

Ask yourself. Poke around.

Snarky economic comment of the day.

"Eeeew, Alan Greenspan is a geeeniuuuus!!".

-Some douchebags who banned me off their anime board in the late 90's.

"Those of us who have looked to the self-interest of lending institutions to protect shareholders’ equity, myself included, are in a state of shocked disbelief".

-Alan Greenspan.

How do you like him now, motherfuckers?

And here's a bit on the economic crisis.

Excellent dissection in the following link.
(Thanks to Allan for showing me this)

Clicky linky.

Well, seems the whole thing mostly comes down to twisted mental pathologies, and diseased ideology.

Tell me something I don't know.

Another of my favorite bits of the Bible.

This being the first bit...

Corinthians 1:19

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

Corinthians 1:21

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Corinthians 1:22

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom

Corinthians 1:23

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

Corinthians 1:25

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Corinthians 1:27

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty

Sorry, all you sophisticated theologians, you can't get to God with logic, and therefore wisdom, God wants you stupid.

All those circular arguments buried under a lake of word soup just piss him off.

Well, that's the end of your little world then.
Oh, well, good thing I told ya now so you have time to do something productive.

The death of physical media.

Well, I already grumbled about the death of video stores in this post.

Well, it's only gonna get (for lack of a better word) worse.

Here's video game pioneer, and industry prophet, Nolan Bushnell...

Here's an ad for OnLive, literally the next generation of games. Here's the cool but spooky Lawnmower Man style interface. And here's a thing on Google that makes me paranoid about us pumping everything online. And, y'know, even if it doesn't become Orwellian and terrifying,...what else is gonna go away? Libraries? Schools? I dunno, I'm feeling weird about it. But, maybe this is what old people feel like about "consarned newfangled gizmos". Maybe this is one of those "circle of life", type deals, where I'm seeing the world I grew up in go away, and it's creeping me out on some animal instinct level. Maybe.

How to beat a guy who has a personal forcefield.

Pointed wooden sticks.

You get 3 guys with pointed wooden sticks to surround the guy with the forcefield, and hold the points of the sticks against the forcefield.

Then, you just wait.

10 minutes later, the guy suffocates.

Bam, done.

Think about it, if the forcefield let in air, it'd also let in the pointed sticks.

So, for the guy to breathe, it must only switch on when a projectile intercepts it.

But, your typical projectiles have a habit of falling away or bouncing off if they hit a forcefield.

Not so a pointed wooden stick.
You can just hold it there.

Plus, wood won't conduct if it's a shock forcefield.

I figured all this out when I was six.

I got fucking sick of that "I've got a forcefield!", kid.
Every group had one.
I pass this knowledge on to you, dear reader.
Use it well.

Yeah, I'm a dweeb, shit like this is giddily exciting to me.

This came out awhile ago, but I got side tracked, and forgot to post it then.

I have this as the capper of a "trilogy", along with "A Universe From Nothing", and"Why We Believe In Gods", in the Dingoo.

Yep, no "Pirates Of The Caribbean 2", for me. :P Read More......

Location blogging #15- quickie updates.

Been a buncha changes just in the couple months since the last of these.

Nicely's Video?
No longer a video store.
Totally a tanning/salon/beauty place.
They got a new purple sign up, and everything.
The bimbos won.

Well, that, and Redbox and Netflix have made the video store of old obsolete.

Which brings me to.....

....the video place by Plummers.

Gone-y, gone, gone.
Empty hole.

Video rentals are extinct.

Except for Blockbusters.

And they only stay afloat because they sell more movies than they rent, and they have an online thing that's a ripoff of Netflix.

*Sigh* bye, video, byyeee.

Oh, and Hanson's?
They're a Mercy Primary Care now.
All glitzy with fluorescent lit signs, and fancier parking, you wouldn't recognize the place.
I'll have to get pics in the next "season", of trips this summer.
