America hates Progressives...

Or at least much of us have been brainwashed into thinking that we hate progressives. Especially in white, rural America, which depends on progressive policies more than anyone else does to survive. But hating on progressives is part and parcel of our national cognitive dissonance and our favorite political past time.

Until these GOPer voting morons lose their political clout and allow the saner parts of America to lead the way, we can write off putting another progressive in the White House for a very long time. First we have to overcome the gerrymandering and voter suppression, the ability of the ultra wealthy to buy elections and then we're going to have ignore all the right wing propaganda bullshit.

I figure that you'd have to catch your breath by now, so I'll give you a second...

Anyway, this will not be an easy task at all. And that's even when we're working with fine, competent, highly qualified Democratic candidates. But how do you beat a party that promotes incompetency as a selling point to people who are too ignorant to differentiate their own asses from holes in the ground?

The dumbing down of America has had serious consequences and we're reaping the whirlwind of the Idiocracy.

They claim that government doesn't work, then they put incompetent people into government with the express intention of making it fail. Trump is doing that right now. His best expectations, even on the right, are to fail. For the wingers, anything better than a total collapsed government will be classified as a "success." Me, I'm going to be happy if I don't have to out run giant, glow-in-dark cockroaches any time in the next four years.

It's madness.

Frankly, as someone who's 55 myself, I'm not holding out for a major political change during my lifetime. The fucking GOPers have a vise grip hold on our entire political infrastructure, and they're not coming out of it with anything less than a full blown revolution... Or blow torches... Maybe even both.

So, I'm depending on you young people to fix this here shit, if you still can. I wish that I could be there to help you out. Hopefully I'll still be around, if we're lucky.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, People!

I used to think that "The Running Man" was a fantasy...



Now, I'm not so sure.

I just found out that I'm three degrees of separation away from Tricky Dick...

As if I needed anymore bad news.

Me and Billy Dee Williams:



Billy Dee and Carrie Fisher:



Carrie Fisher and His High Trickiness:



But it turns out that she was an unwilling participant:



I'm sure that she put those acting skills to use.

From here on out, all of my net posts will be signed off by "FDT."

As a matter of fact, I'm betting that 2017 will be the year of FDT.

FDT is where it's at, people.

Dedicated to all the greats who have left us behind on this planet this year...

May all their journeys go gentle.

Millions Mourn As Rocker/Activist Ted Nugent, Age 68, Found Alive

Millions of Americans are in mourning after news broke this afternoon that rocker/activist Ted Nugent was still alive. Word broke early, spread quickly, and sent shock waves throughout the rock and roll community and the Republican Party, where Nugent, 70, is well-known for his fierce advocacy for conservative causes, unwavering support for the rights of gun owners and hunters, and ferocious loyalty and devotion to today’s true American patriots. The National Rifle Association issued the following statement:

Ted Nugent has proudly and patriotically served on the NRA’s board of directors since 1995. The Association shares a deep sense of shock with our 4.5 million members and countless millions of supporters as details of this catastrophic event continue to unfold.


PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), one of several organizations Nugent violently criticized in the past, also issued a statement expressing condolences.

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Nugent initially found fame as lead guitarist for The Amboy Dukes before embarking on a solo career. Highlights from Nugent’s life include a 1977 interview appearing in High Times magazine, in which he famously told a reporter how he avoided the (Viet Nam War) draft: he did not bathe, brush his teeth, or shave for 30 days leading up to his pre-induction physical. To sweeten the pot, he also defecated in his pants. “I was so proud,” Nugent recalled.
