Political discourse.

I’m sure you’re aware of that which is the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.  But reading about, I’m wondering if there’s some fissure within the movement — on when and where we’d need to get going. And I’m not speaking of this… The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement sepe

The Debt’s falling.  Because of the last president and the last Congress.  Or Trump.  Or something. The Google Imbargalo.  Our Civil War.  To the barricades!

Jim Marrs. Never been a better time to be alive than right now! Funny comics. Why he was hired. Bail Reform Support for War with North Korea increasing. Say no to Kurdistan.

Yellow stickers, black font — a particular font, calling you “Phonies” and directing you to look up some name on youtube to find out why everyone secretly hates you.  Posted in swarths about.  They’ll eventually be peeled off, and then sometime when whoever runs around in the dead of night putting

Fascinating. Gwenyth Paltrow — who, I guess you might consider a “limousine liberal”  — is selling the same crap as Alex Jones. And so it is. At the end of the article, writer Molly Young notes that she was surprised to discover that many of the same supplements peddled by Moon Juice and Goop are

I don’t think you can dismiss the Trump insult, obscure as it is, of Elizabeth Warren to Pocahontas too easily.  Or as easily as done here.  It is a little pointless, and the name game attached to the “issue” is Trumpian bluster.  Surreally, the last time Trump tossed it out, he did so in a […]

Oh.  Yeah.  The big gossip coming out of Washington.  And.  Wait.  Wait.  Brash talk from Donald Trump, assailing his key aides?  Like, we can’t see this in his history anywhere.

So, roughly.  Rand Paul and Mike Lee represent the “conservative dissenters” in the Grand Republican Party — of the trio that might toss in Ted Cruz were him to have decided to throw some “Why — this is just Obamacare Lite!’ commentary into the health care thingy. Jerry Moran and Susan C

An ad in the Nation for a movie called “13 Minutes”. Which reads “From the Director of “Downfall”. [tap, tap, tap]. Quick.  Without looking it up.  What do you think the movie 13 Minutes concerns? And is there any movie most people who have seen some of it have seen only exactly 2 minutes 10

I’ve been re-enacting the Storming of the Bastille today, in honor of the anniversary date. Surprisingly, haven’t been arrested yet, even if I have been thrown out of every location I’ve stormed in Bastille-like fashion.

Remember when Billy Carter embarrassed the Jimmy Carter administration with his financial dealings with Libya? It was Libya, wasn’t it?  I don’t know — I wasn’t alive back then. I’m wondering if now that Donald Trump, Jr is in the news — for connections to both the Donald Trump Presidenc

A new hybrid approach for Stephen Colbert in running re-runs on Friday.  Later Letterman phoned Fridays in by taping two shows earlier in the week.  But Colbert, while apparently wanting to phone something in, wants to retain the topicality that is the show.

I’m reading an article about Ru Paul, where she is on her television show in her newly energized post – Trump “Opposition” “Resistance” role, and mocking the Rust Beltians who swung to Trump.  It’s some interesting hectoring on his part. “If you were a factory worker and your job

I wonder if maybe last years’ flop movie, Ghost Busters, the one of the female cast — which was touted as a harbinger or a rallying cry for the Woman to get into the White House… (see Ellen Degeneres’s show promotion on “Get Out Your Woman Card?) … maybe wasn’t a year late?  Or, yo

The National Review on the Alex Jones interview with Megyn Kelly — a staple interview  over the past decade or two on any talk radio show that wants to delve for a minute or two into conspiranoia (moving past your George Noorys and including, say, the “always wanting a kook on the air” Alan Colmes —

I.  Scotland holds a vote on whether to secede from the United Kingdom.  With the whole of the British political establishment working overtime to defeat the measure, Scotland rejects the measure narrowly, arguing for a rocky future where dreams of nationhood are not likely to be appeased.

After all the gnashing of teeth I’m reading on the sheer ineptness of Jeremy Corbyn in the New Statesman and other periodicals of the left parliament … Winner.  Sort of.

In 1970, Oregon Governor boasted up Vortex, a concert festival, to detract hippies from yippies, lowering the stakes of a planned protest against an American Legion event.

Greg Gianforte really hates the Guardian.  Because they ask questions to him.  I like the first comment: “Body Slam” ???? This video is inconclusive regarding a Body Slam ?! It looks more like a little tussle. Sure.  Depends on what your definition of “body slam” is? I’m wondering what the d

Apparently, there’s a bit of a hub ub over “13 Reasons Why”, which is a book that deals with teenage suicide — and now more importantly a tv (or rather screen, see: Netflix) series adapting said book.  And so goes a great new moral panic. And a perceived spike in teen suicide is being placed […
