NOTE: I just reposted this after it was accidentally deleted. I left it as it was when originally written but added the second title line.
I am a student of it all but history is probably the subject I find the most important lately. I don’t read it to remember details of dates, names, and places specifically but to note the trends as the years move forward and back. There is one constant throughout all of human history; rich people behave badly and they make The People believe it’s someone else’s fault.
This is why I hate, HATE, shows like…
Red states. I don’t know exactly how they got so colorized but it fits. Red. Blood red is the color of conservativism and it always has been. Follow “the law” be it of “God” or man or face the wrath of deadly justice. This abortion bullshit is just the latest outcome of a slow slog to the male-dominated, brutal, and misogynistic fascism that the Taliban have been salivating for the last 20 years too. It’s happening all over the world but it's doomed to failure . . . eventually.
It's a hopeful and positive piece “celebrating”…
Just Gmail alerted "Form energy." I want in on the IPO!! If its all they say, this changes everything. Bye bye fossil fuels! Bye bye blood lithium!
Nice work, NBC, and anyone that had anything to do with season 8 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. A better 23 minutes of gut-wrenching hilarity and sadness will be hard to find.
A few days ago my girlfriend texted me “Yes!!!” with a pic of the season 8 banner on Hulu. I replied with a simple “Nice.” I was glad she was excited but to be honest I was not at all interested in watching the show anymore.
Fundamentally, this is where my head is lately, “It’s a cop show, bro! Fuck cops, man!”
BLM, mother fuckers! Fascist fucks with badges cracking…
I need you, Sexy. (No, you don’t. I have free will. I see through your lies. I don’t need you either. In fact, I wish you would just crawl completely into your syphilitic mind and just drool uncontrollably for the rest of your pathetic existence.)
Liberal Big Tech companies, the Fake News media, and the Democrats have all teamed up to take me down, and more importantly, to take YOU down. (Me!? I’m fine. I left Facebook under MY own power. Twitter I barely look at anymore. Sorry not sorry you blew your social media privileges by spreading hate for…
In politics there is one rule. Crush your enemies. Do not tell them anything that will give an advantage. The GOP is weaker than I've ever seen them in my life time. If anything she should help stirring their pot even harder and watch them burn themselves out. If this is what she thinks she's doing, she's a fool. No one, not Cheney, not Romney, not any of them bucking Trump should be welcomed if they switch sides. They made their beds. None should be offered if they get kicked out of them. Thanks to them all for trying to inject some reason into the GOP but now, please just fuck off after they've reclaimed their lost souls. Go write a book, fallen angels.
I’ve been thinking about my parents and their boomer generation lately. Did none of them see the world we have today coming? Their parents were from The Greatest Generation but little wisdom seems to have grown from that seed.
To say the world today is a “messy place” is the understatement of all our generations. Is this all just a cycle that is now repeating again? All the sacrifice. All the death. All the lives forever altered by two world wars, so many economic downturns, is it all just about to happen again?
My grandparents lived through the Great Depression…
All well. G got his first Covid shot now that he’s old enough after the CDC rule change. We’re very happy about it.
The mask mandate is over for those who have been vaccinated but most places still want you to wear them. As of now, there is no “proof of vax” card required to prove you have been vaxed or not. I’ve been fully vaxed and I’m fine wearing my mask for the rest of my life. I’m not hurting anyone wearing it. I’m protecting myself and others doing it. …
It’s been a few days. All well. We are looking forward to getting G his Covid vax soon. So glad under 16 is now becoming available.
I was thinking about time capsules for some reason the other day. I realized a while back that every time we throw out a bag of garbage we just made a “time capsule.”
Time capsules are stupid.
Every year humanity makes over 2 billion tons of waste. It either gets buried, burned, or ends up in places it's not supposed to be. Taking the time to hand-select the garbage and put a nice little…
I think the human race will probably survive him but we must address how to teach critical thinking again and how immensely important it is to any hope of maintaining a democracy. Without an electorate voting from actual facts and the truth, our democracy is doomed.
