Well at least 2020 is almost over.

Well at least 2020 is almost over. And I still haven’t written my 2020: Choose Your Own Disaster book, but I haven’t given up on it. President Elect Biden announces his communications team. Not a Y chromosome in sight. Thinking of RGB and “When there are nine,” today. Instead of sharing a news article on this, I thought I would link to some unintentional satire first. Hilarious. Are they

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

Election Day

By GENERATIONXX | November 3, 2020 | 0 Comments

Have you voted? If no, close browser, proceed immediately to your polling place. This is not a drill. The next few years will be painful no matter what. The question is will that pain be in service of building back or will it be because the American people revealed ourselves to be a whole lot worse than anyone suspected or that our democracy revealed itself to be a whole

The scary, the interesting and the utterly batshit… It’s nearly impossible to believe that we have made it this far… as the canceled year of 2020 limps toward the finish of this uniquely cursed trip around the sun, the news rains down on us incessantly. Here’s a round up of important, interesting or just plain batshit stories from the past week that kept us up all night, made us

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

Death and Taxes?

One month to go. No Title He hosted a super-spreader event to honor a justice who would have the government control your body but refuse the duty to care for it, and when the virus he helped go around came around, he availed of the healthcare he would deny others, financed by the taxes he refuses to pay. I had this whole tax thing worked out in my head

RBG

RBG I’ve been sad about the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg since Friday. But today seems like a good day to stop being sad that she died and start remembering how thankful we are that she lived. And she was a badass revolutionary with big ideas in a tiny and very dignified package. When asked when there will be enough women on the Supreme Court, she replied “When there

Acute on Chronic & Malignant on Idiotic Note: This was intended for yesterday and today’s still needs work so you may get two today, or possibly a bonus on Sat as we look at the Big Ten reversing itself and deciding to have football which seems appropriate on a fall Saturday. We had problems long before Donald Trump, but with a government that at least pretended to function, they

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

WTF: September 9, 2020

She’s Not My Type Apparently, Donald Trump could rape someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose any support. Every day brings a new revelation of corruption, self-dealing and reprehensible behavior. But this just blows my mind. Let’s talk about E. Jean Carroll and the incredibly shitty way we treat women in America. Yesterday the taxpayer funded US Department of Justice filed paperwork to take over Trump’s defense against the
