Super pleased with my new 6Gen iPod Touch

Makes the 3Gen very jealous.

Santa Heard that someone wasn't in the Holiday spirit yesterday...

That's more like it!

T'was The Night Before Christmas DU Style (With sincere apologies to Major Henry Livingston Jr.)

'Twas the night before Christmas and here in The Function
Not a creature was stirring, not even The Gungeon;
The stockings were hung all over The Lounge with care,
Along with pictures of kittens that are always posted there;

The Berners and Hillers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of candidates gyrated in their heads;
And Skinner in his Snuggie, EarlG in his cap,
and Elad had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When out on the Internet there arose such a boisterous clatter,
I sprang from my Craftmatic to see what's the matter.
Away to the iMac I flew, with absent my trousers,
Logged on the computer and opened the browsers.

I gazed upon my screen all manner of Republican nuttery.
To a political junkie like me, it's all tasty and buttery,
When, instead of some fun, came the worst of letdowns,
I beheld a miniature clown car, and nine tiny clowns,

With a little old driver, so obtuse and lumpy,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Trumpy.
More vapid than baggers, these GOPer hopefuls they came,
And he snorted, and rambled, and called the rest by name;

To the top of Nashua! to the top of Des Moines!
Now run away! run away! run from my loins!"

As Gadsen flags fly, fluttered by right wing hot air,
The facts, pollsters and pundits avoid, with nary a care.
Before a boisterous crowd of rabid morons they flew,
With the car full of bullshit, and St. Trumpster too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on my iMac
The stumbling and grumbling of each political PAC.
As I scrolled down the browser, I clicked on a link,
On the screen came St. Trumpy, just as my tummy started to sink.

He was dressed, all in Brooks Brothers, from his neck to his foot,
And on his scalp was glued a three-toed sloth or a dead rat to boot;
A bundle of fascistic rhetoric he had rattling in his head,
I plainly saw that he was The Monster from the Republicans' Id.

His eyes -- how they squinted! his dimples how scuzzy!
His cheeks were all swollen, his nose hairs so fuzzy!
His lipless little mouth was drawn up in a smirk,
And his entire countenance confirmed him a jerk;

He gritted his teeth, then he changed to a pout,
And reams of disjointed nonsense he started to shout;
"You're all losers, I'm the best, it's so great to be me,
and I'll kick out the Muslims and Mexicans, with enthusiasm and glee."

The moronic crowd ate him up, this horrible old elf,
And I winced when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A craze of his eye and the dead rat on his head,
Soon gave me to know I had everything to dread;

He spoke endless nonsense, getting a rise out of the crowd;
And emptied their heads, common sense disallowed.
He swerved and bent over and let out a poot.
And the morons ate it all up, this clown for they'd root;

All done, he sprang to the clown car, with the others in tow,
And away they all flew to Carolina, for the rest of the show.
But I heard him exclaim, "Look at them all, they're nothing but suckers.
If I can do one thing well, I can fleece motherfuckers."

The End!

I wish all of you a Happy Holiday and Joyous New Year, Everybody!

And remember, friends don't let friends not vote against Republicans in November 2016.

I saw Star Wars today. All I have to say is…

Anyone else having an issue with the edit function? nt

Whenever I come across ridiculous things that wingers say…

And here's a good example right here… http://www.rawstory.com/2015/12/anti-islam-group-and-tea-partiers-harass-florida-sheriff-for-hiring-muslim-deputy/ …I usually try to classify their statements into one of several categories:

1. Things that are outrageous declarations of complete and utter bullshit they don't even believe in, but are attempting to get others to believe in it because they feel that they draw an advantage from making others believe in outrageous things.

2. Things that are based on their innate need to hate and fear other people, because they use hate and fear to depict themselves as better and moralistic people. They simply choose other people to contradict against and base their own personal validity on how much they disagree with those people that they despise.

3. Conflicted statements that depict their unwillingness to account for facts that they're aware of, but which unfortunately cannot abide by their own distorted worldview.

4. Plain, baldfaced lies, demonstrations of utter ignorance and outright delusions.

Given my observations of these kinds of right wing statements, time and time again, I came to the conclusion a long time ago that I could never trust those motherfuckers.

Just about everything that I normally admire in other human beings, like compassion, candor, good naturedness, generosity, acceptance, self-awareness, intelligence and most of all, honesty, I simply cannot see in those people. I see their shit eating smirks, as if they think they're actually fooling people who wouldn't want to otherwise be fooled. I hear fear and anger in their voices, as they whip themselves into a frenzy of misery, hatred and despair. I see how their cling to their own animosity of others unlike themselves and their unabashed bigotry as comfort blankets.

These are people who are completely unlikeable, untrustworthy and nothing to be admired. The problem is that they feel justified to be complete assholes, as if being an asshole is a Gawd-given right to them.

All I know about them is that they never give up, these insufferable bastards. They make it really hard to be nice during the holiday season. But sometimes I find that I can't help myself and point out just how crappy they are.

Just to get it off my chest, I have to just end this with saying, all in all, fuck them. Really… Fuck 'em all. The worthless pieces of shit.

There, I'm all better now. Anyway, have a good Sunday, y'all!

Been busy lately...

Lots of stuff on the plate because of this time of year, as you could guess. So, I haven't had a lot of time to post around here for a while. Except for music posts. I've been deep into my collection and I shared that in the Lounge.

One thing that hasn't happened is that I haven't been having run ins. Not giving a shit has its benefits, it seems, and I haven't been giving one about the primary BIG TIME!

I figure it out this way: Picking the nominee is going to be a collective exercise for ALL party voters, not just the malcontents who inhabit the internet. Once we get the nominee, THEN we can get down to the business that I'm only interested in and that's KICKING GOP ASS in November.

This current silly season will not last. After the Convention is over, some folks on the Internet are going to have come face to face with all the ridiculous shit they've been saying all this time, because REALITY will have set in and they may or may not have gotten their sparkly, rainbow colored unicorn. Their arguments about why their candidates WILL have won the primary will have been proven either true or they will ring false.

All I'm doing right now is waiting and not giving a shit.

By the time November comes around, ALL of us, whether from one end or the other, will have needed to ban together to kick GOPer ass with whatever we all were handed. That's the way things are and we all signed up for this process, so we all need to deal with it, whether we get our way or not.

Childish tantrums are just that, childish. No time to deal with them.

However, as far as Black issues are concerned, whether they're involved in the primary process or not, they always matter and will always take precedent. Because even if we do put another Democrat into the White House, we will still be Black people living in a mostly white America that's ruled by the dictates of white supremacy. Something that no President, however well intended, can ever change.

For the abolition of white supremacy, the people are going need to lead on that issue, not the politicians.

In the meantime, Happy Holidays, y'all and see you around.

Merry Christmas, Y'all


THIS is your lucky day...

Or was it last Thursday?

Gee, I forgot.

Never mind.
