What now?

Apparently, Eric was wrong. Everything did not magically return to normal upon firing President Badstupid. I had to take some time off, as being too informed was causing significant mood impairment. And I really wanted to get to the other side of Rudy Giuliani’s embarrassing public dissembling at a landscaping company and dyeing live on television. It’s almost too easy to make jokes about. And it’s also really sad

The first amendment has a tough day. Yesterday was a tough day for the First Amendment in this country. First, Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s nominee for Aunt Lydia the Supreme Court struggled with naming the five freedoms (a question that may have put someone in danger of failing a naturalization test) in a question that should have been a layup by Republican Ben Sasse of Nebraska who thinks he

The Banality of Evil I think the hardest part about living in this American Dystopia is accepting how mundane evil is. It’s just so BORING. No Bond villains living in a bunker on a private island. No General Zod arriving from space to claim power. No Miss Hannigan torturing orphans for fun. It doesn’t announce itself and laugh diabolically. It drops out of Harvard to create the world’s biggest

bak 2 skül or nah? As parents across the country grapple with the very real concerns about sending their warring little assholes precious children back to school, even the most well read and smartest among us don’t have a clear sense of what is the right thing to do. As we struggle to decide, I imagine many of us look wistfully at the certainty afforded by belligerent ignorance. Alas,

AG Hedley LeBarr & President Donald Harrumph In a masterpiece of verbal economy necessitated by a severely truncated vocabulary, Donald Trump squeezed racism, misogyny, the “money honey” (ew), a misspelling, and his 1950s/Mad Men worldview into one compact tweet. “The ‘suburban housewife’ will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden

America: The Third Worldiest First World Country on Earth So yesterday we didn’t post. Why you ask? Because the power is out. And likely will be for… a while. No one can really say. But after living on the East coast for 20+ years with storms steadily getting freakier and more dangerous, one does begin to wonder. Is this really the best we can do? Are we saving that

Nevertheless They Persisted The search for Biden’s Veep rolls on… Washington Post: Democrats are trying to unseat a bully. They need to stop using a bully’s tactics to do so. But right now it resembles a prickly reality show where the women who might make history must first walk head high through a rain of fists from aging men “critiquing” their talents by speaking sideways to the dudes in

Who do we want to be?

Who do we want to be? The funeral service for Rep. John Lewis yesterday was an important reminder to Americans of what we can be if we so choose. So today, I ask you: Do you want to be a marmalade-masked Twitter grievance demon with a catanus mouth and father of the live action version of Beavis and Butthead or a dancing superhero in a trench coat who practiced

Corruption

By GENERATIONXX | July 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

Corruption as far as the eye can see. I wonder sometimes why friendly PACs or the Democratic party aren’t talking corruption at every opportunity. Because we can disagree on every single issue if we want to, but I have never met anyone, no matter how kinky, who enjoys getting cheated. Take insider trading. Does anyone beyond the beneficiary love that? I don’t think so. Kodak’s stock performance has raised

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t really after you. Washington Post: The three reasons conspiracy theories are more dangerous than ever. When people despair, they often seek solace either in mainstream religion or in less organized, more extreme faiths. Conspiracy theories always flourish in a time of troubles. These are attempts to suggest that inexplicable and random events, terrible in their import, are the product of hidden
