Dear Trump: the arc of moral history does not bend toward your man-cave

Donald Trump’s inauguration presents a timely opportunity to hammer at his crass misogyny. Slogan-wise, THE ARC OF HISTORY BENDS TOWARD EQUALITY gets my vote for spot-on feminist rejoinder. I also like HELL HATH NO FURY, YOU SORRY ILLITERATE! The latter … Continue reading

Why opinion polls don’t actually matter

Picture a vitamin commercial. It starts out with a very sketchy statistic. “80 percent of American men try to eat more sensibly” I changed the wording a bit. The 80% part stays. Then it states that 90% don’t eat and … Continue reading

Brexit and the Impending Apocalypse

Just so there’s no confusion, I’m not going to ridicule people for saying the end is near. It might be, or not. This is more of a treatise on Jingoist Pulpits. I know that politics is a major part of … Continue reading

Capital is a Treasonous offense.

So now Britain got “Shell”ed in their own territory waters and the once-proud Royal Navy is facing the same kind of humiliation handed to the once-proud U.S. Navy in OUR territorial waters. Our navy got bitch-slapped by the British, told … Continue reading

The Jews killed Harry Potter, if we’re to believe the latest Israeli travel PR

I’m mocking the mother of all anti-Semitisms, the original Christian dead horse, that Jews killed Jesus. So let’s be very clear, it was the Zionists who killed Harry Potter. And it wasn’t me how brought it up. Israeli tourism promoters … Continue reading

A thuggish murder of Queen’s English

Christine O’Donnell is being audited on her campaign spending, as well she should. She made a devil’s deal, sold the remaining fragments of her soul on a bet that she could become a Congress-critter. The Korporate Kampaign-fund Kartel fronted her … Continue reading

Fundamentalists might heed a Catholic, or not

But some will be swayed by people who only speak English, and that not much goodly, (bad joke and I’d have to go to a seance and ask Shakespeare if it’s actually grammatically correct, which leads to==>>) but will insist … Continue reading

Tennessee Fire-Non-Fighters and the Bible

The language used by the fire-non-fighter is heavily ingrained indoctrination. There’s a movement with some familiar names on the letterheads, spokesfreaks not leaders, Beck, Hannity, O’Reilly, Malkin… people whose ambitions are to create an American Sha’ariah based on their own … Continue reading

Paradigm, Buzzword, Keyword, and persuasion

Paradigm is a “consciousness” term. One of the best known ways to demonstrate it is visually, not verbally, there’s a really famous illustration of three forms, if looked at one way, the form in the middle would be the first … Continue reading

And I thought it couldn’t possibly get worse.

I thought for a long time that some of Shakespeares classic works, those of which are so tragic in scope that it’s worse than dating a Goth on downers, couldn’t possibly be given the Disney Treatment. Then, they popped off … Continue reading

Original Anti-Zionist jokes in Monty Python’s LIFE OF BRIAN remain cut out of Criterion special edition

Think you know the saga of the deleted scenes from Monty Python’s LIFE OF BRIAN? Not if you trust Wikipedia. The 1979 comedy didn’t just take the mickey out of Jesus and the feuding Palestinian Liberation fronts, it poked fun … Continue reading

In the dawning of the year 517 A.C.

Like in “After Columbus” or “Apocalypse Came” or “Anti-Cherokee” or “Aw, Crap! There’s not Any Chance of getting A Check in the mail today!” So there was a pow-wow the other day of First Nations peoples, downtown. Actually there’s been … Continue reading

Anti-Zionism 4D: Defining Demonization Double Standards and Delegitimization

The word “nutritious” defines a food quality that provides sustenance. I’ve no doubt as skepticism grows about the likely poisonous aspects of refined sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup, the corporate sugar-water purveyors will append “satiates your subliminal impulses” to … Continue reading

Churchill better historian than Shakespeare….

Because Shakespeare did something Dr Churchill refused to do. In his Toady Subservience to King James I, he re-wrote the history of Scotland. Macbeth is a Morality Play cleverly disguised as propaganda, or perhaps the other way round. Now, I’m … Continue reading

Brave New Chickens

Not what you might think. Actually it’s from a segment of “How It’s Made” on the Science Channel, coupled in with Aldous Huxley’s frequently banned book. This one (I watched it today) was on Eggs. And they proceeded to show … Continue reading

Uh, t’be or not t’be well spoken enough

Barack Obama does it. So does Sarah Palin. On the national stage before millions of TV viewers. I think it’s time t’make it official. The word “to” has become an apostrophe’d “tuh.” Americans should have t’spell it that way if … Continue reading

The falsity of Stalinist “Socialism”

Socialism does not equal tyranny, unlike the claims and demagoguery of the capitalists. A true democratic Socialism and fair market system is a natural course for human society. It is free of predatory and parasitic capitalist schemes to dominate and … Continue reading
