I have just returned from another biannual exercise in futility: voting in mid-term US elections. Once again my preferred candidate, none of the above, was not on the ballot; so, once again, I held my nose and did my best to sabotage the fetid dreams of the rotting things that were. Any barely sentient ape … Continue reading I Voted for Nothing
What’s the one sentence takeaway from the unfolding Ukraine mess? Don’t give up your nukes! It’s unlikely that any of this would be happening if Ukraine had retained their nuclear weapons instead of turning them in for the magic beans of “international guarantees.” It would be interesting to review the anti-nuke sales pitches made to … Continue reading Ukraine takeaway: Don’t give up your Nukes
The most intelligent comment I have read about Bitcoin is that it’s a perfect protest. Bitcoin went live in 2009 shortly after the 2008 financial crisis. The 2008 crisis was a defining moment. Prior to that date I believed that the US government, despite its obvious warts, short comings and long checkered history was still … Continue reading Bitcoin is a Perfect Protest
PBS is begging for money again. PBS is a US public broadcasting network. Like all public English language broadcasters, (CBC Canada, ABC Australia, BBC UK), PBS is filled with tiresome left wingers that do not see themselves as left wingers. It's still easy to find disingenuous tools in these intuitions that publicly declare they're bias … Continue reading Sorry PBS you already have my Money
I just emailed this to my Congresswoman, Ann Wagner, 2nd district Missouri. I'm going to make sure I'm on the NSA's naughty malcontent list. Dear Ann, Your summer vacation from Congress is coming to an end. Soon you will be back in Washington dealing with little problems like: runaway deficit financing, relentless FED driven currency debasement, … Continue reading I write my Congresswoman about Syria
I'm a big fan of stark choices. Stark choices push trivialities aside, expose underlying problems and bring hidden motivations to light. There is nothing more satisfying than watching well nursed notions self-destruct when reduced to stark choices. Here's a stark choice our corrupt ruling class will never put on ballots, or discuss, or dare mention. … Continue reading Let’s Trade Constitutional Amendments
About the only surprise coming out of the recent US election was Puerto Rico's foolish vote to seek statehood. People, you don't board the Titanic after it has hit the iceberg. In time Puerto Ricans will learn what Quebec separatists have already painfully absorbed. If fence-sitting is your main tactic for extorting favors from larger … Continue reading Election Reflections
Yousef Nadarkhani I rarely comment on the "news" but the planned execution of Yousef Nadarkhani for the make-believe crime of Islamic apostasy has really pissed me off. Once again the Iranian branch of the "religion of peace" shows its primitive, ass-backwards, subhuman side to a stunned world that finds it hard to believe that changing your mind about fictitious religious nonsense is … Continue reading Iranian Regime Justice is pathetic Sharia Savagery.
Government Fiscal Policy Well well it turns out that when John Boehner isn't crying like a little girl he can deliver a speech. Tonight he smoked Obama like a fine cigar. I tried to flip around Obama's debt limit rant but ended up watching like a gawker at a hospital fire. Any dolt with a fifth graders … Continue reading Debt Dolts Diddle and Drone!
Apollo Earthrise 2011 marks the 42’nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. 42 idiot infested years have passed since that glorious day and nothing that has happened since comes within a nautical league of matching it. My vile boomer generation has downplayed the significance of space exploration for decades. I remember getting a shrill … Continue reading The UN Space Treaty is Holding Us Back!
