About Me

It was a dark, and stormy night. The ship was sinking. The Captain said, \"tell me a story\". So I did.

The 1st Amendment is irrelevant when we're not talking about the US. HOWEVER:

When people try to crap all over the 1st Amendment by saying, in essence, "you're not allowed to say something that might make someone else angry", they are wholly and utterly incorrect. Speech isn't prohibited just because it might make someone angry or offend them.


Someone standing up in front of a group of Fundamentalist Right Wing Christians and saying "I'm Gay", or two men kissing, might very easily be considered "incitement to riot". Sorry, there are no "hate speech" exceptions to the 1st Amendment. The 1st Amendment protects unpopular speech- that's the whole point. We want to go down the path of banning all speech that might piss someone off? Really?

Why there are so many people falling all over themselves today to attempt to "educate" the rest of us, incorrectly, on the myriad long lists of things apparently we're not allowed to say in this country, I have no fucking idea, but I will be damned if I'm going to sit back and allow the core values of the 1st Amendment to be misrepresented.

Everyone knows that Zeus is the Deity in charge of overpriced bundles & throttled broadband service

I would think they'd be more concerned about that omission.

Ten Bucks? TEN bucks?

I waited until I could see "Atlas Shat" on Netflix streaming, for free. Which is good, because I could stand about 3 minutes of it, max. You don't need to spend $10 bucks on a movie to know it sucks.

Don't encourage people to spend 10 bucks on crap. The thesis of "2016" is that Obama was "programmed by his Kenyan father to have an anti-colonial mentality which is why he WANTS TO MAKE AMERICA MEDIOCRE"



Let me break "2016" down for you: Short answer? It's FUCKING CRAP. The people busy making America Mediocre are the dimwitted flat-earth creationists and billionaire greedheads that comprise today's Republican Party. They're people like Mitch McConnell, who didn't give a flying fuck about this country and its people for the past 4 years, because actually doing anything to help us recover from Bush's fuckups might make Obama look good.

How can they be trusted to handle the White House if they can't even handle one of these?

I realize we can't all die soon enough for some people, but that's not going to happen.

Yeah, I know, we suck

...yeah, there's no point

....and yeah we're all sinners, too (which is what that shit all really gets back to, if you dig deep enough)

Still, life- of which we ARE a part- spreads and reproduces. It doesn't give a shit about "good" or "evil", it gives a shit about flourishing. Oh, people are so bad! People are destroying the planet! People are causing a mass extinction! You know what caused the last mass extinction? A big fucking rock from space. No corporate greed, SUVs, or anthrocentrism involved. Know what didn't stop it? The extremely successful class of large flightless birds known as "Dinosaurs" who, for all their success, didn't have brains, space travel, or technology enough to, yes, notice and divert a giant fucking rock from space.

So maybe- just maybe- this planet that we're supposedly so inimically opposed to, that we're "destroying", that we have blasphemed against with our technology and our space travel and our iphones and shit, knew exactly what it was doing when it took the gamble- including the environmental gamble- of churning out a species intelligent enough to develop planetary civilization and ALSO intelligent enough to act as a planetary self-defense mechanism.

Or, maybe it's just evolution working its blind magic, but in that case, yeah, we're going to spread our glorious race across the universe, because that is our evolutionary imperative.

Yes, but is the gender difference really due to biology?

Or societal conditioning?

Cats are bombarded daily with thousands of messages through the Patriarchal media. Cats are given gender-specific names and, often, forced to wear undignified collars with, many times, pink or blue depending on their sex.

Cats are well-known consumers of Cable TV, according to some research making up at least 70% of the viewing demographic on such popular shows as "Terra Nova", "Kim's Fairytale Wedding, A Kardashian Event" and "The Wealth Channel Presents a half hour of Dancing Red Laser Dots, Shiny bits of tin foil, and succulent cubes of Tuna in HD".

This has been confirmed repeatedly by numerous independent studies.

All this media programming has an effect on the impressionable feline mind - it MUST! By the time a cat is old enough to hide in the linen closet for 3 long, urine-soaked-towel days, his or her brain has been thoroughly saturated with pernicious messages about expected gender roles.

For cats.

So don't fall for that evo-psych nonsense about how "male cats are more likely to do risky things than female cats"!
