About Me

Your socks smell

Journal Archives

Maybe they weren't willing to "fix" the lyrics to Born in the USA for El Trumpo?

Born up in the rich man's crib
the first mil I got before I wore a bib
end up like a pig that's been fed too much
'til you spend half your life just sloppin' it up

I'm a Trump in the USA, Trump in the USA
I'm a Trump in the USA, Trump in the USA

Kids were going off to Vietnam
I had my own battles, here at home
sure its bad when the 'cong shoots at you
but I tell you what, the clap can hurt, too

Got my own version of the taj majal
see I'm a regular guy, just like y'all
I have a bathroom with a gold plated throne
I do my best tweeting in there, alone

Trump, in the USA ..etc

I'm pretty classy, don't say that I'm not
you should see my daughter- totally hot
Maybe I'll bend the Constitution until it breaks
but I'll get you a deal on some premium steaks

Come back down to Washington DC
For some reason the oval office smells kinda like pee
4 long years, I know you're quite tense
it's pretty bad, when you wish I were Pence

Trump in the USA
I'm a shit-tweetin' Trumpy in the USA
Trump in the USA etc. etc.

Penthouse puts up $ to get Trump evidence, while Gail Dines helps write the GOP Platform

remind me again who is on our side and who isn't?

Orrin Hatch's #1 priority for the incoming DOJ? "Obscenity". Hatch simply ADORES Dines' work.

Gail Dines' language on the topic was incorporated verbatim into the GOP platform.

Susan Brownmiller- remember her?- is "cautiously optimistic" about the incoming Trump Administration.


So. Can we please do away with the fucking tired fiction that these Republican allies and those that carry water for them are anything but enablers of the religious right, already?

Straight up? We've done a piss-poor job of defining ourselves as the party of personal freedom.

Perfect example: With the exception of some of our leaders on the West Coast, our party has dropped the fucking ball on marijuana legalization bigtime, which is currently more popular than either party. Due to political cowardace we have failed to embrace an issue - and votes - which should be easily ours.

Millennials are an even bigger generation than boomers, and its important to remember that many who are voting age arent really old enough to remember much about what the Republicans do when they're in charge.

But they have seen "progressives" run around college campuses trying to enforce rules about what people cant say, sanction students for wearing the wrong halloween costume, ban people from speaking if they might express wrongthink opinions, etc.

They don't remeber Ed Meese waging war on free speech, but they do see "liberals" who think, for instance, that 'Blasphemous' cartoons arent protected by the 1st Amendment.

Too many people on our side have substituted lecturing and finger-wagging at people for actually communicating with them and accepting that sometimes living in a free society means people will say or do things you don't, personally, approve of.

We've been lazy and we have failed to rearticulate our values coherently for a new generation, thats part of it.

That said, its not "cool" to be a Republican. But the electorate is trending away from self-identification on everything from party to religion, and that's what we need to pay attention to. Younger voters in particular are more secular, and more committed to keeping government out of their minds, bodies, bedrooms and bloodstreams. They dont want Rick Santorum telling them they cant see full frontal nudity on HBO or watch consenting adults fuck on the internet, but guess what? They dont want Gail Dines telling them that either.

Lastly, it's always cooler to rebel against the powers that be, and we've had a Democrat in the WH for 8 years. I dont think you can underestimate the simply cyclical nature of some of this shit.

Oh, I love this particular forum.

It has solved a longstanding laundry mystery.

I've been on MIRT, and I've seen zombie accounts over a decade old taken out of storage to troll.

I don't pretend to understand it.

Another thing is, there are sockpuppets all the fuck over the place. A lot of the sort of one-note axe grinding and DU-focused drama farming that happens on this board, it's designed to make you think it's coming from a whole big group of people, but it's pretty much the same crowd, they just use a whole bunch of accounts. Maybe 5-10 actual people, max.

They think they're being clever, but it's pretty fucking transparent.

you don't carry out a post-mortem by standing in the morgue going "the patient is SO NOT dead!"

Well what else am I supposed to do with this big ol' mansplainer I got here

At six weeks, the "person" you are talking about is the size of a lentil.

You're gonna have a tough time arguing that there is sentience-level brain development at that point.

"Oh, but there's a heartbeat!"... that must mean it's already a little tiny person, right?

http://www.slate.com/articles/video/video/2015/07/beating_human_heart_tissue_grown_in_lab_video.html

Uh, no. Cells, like heart cells, self-organize to the point of beating. There is a continuum of existence from fertilization to birth, but only anti-choicers take the decidedly theological; not based in science; position that at the moment of conception by magic, this-



becomes the functional (and, by their thinking, legal) equivalent of this.



Now, I like babies too. But a fertilized egg is not a fetus at 6 weeks is not a baby. And regardless, the ONLY person fit to make a determination about what a woman should be "allowed" to do vis a vis her own reproductive system, is the woman in question. These decisions are too crucial, too personal, too life situation-specific, to leave to total strangers, panels of priests, Ohio legislators with a history of domestic violence complaints, etc.



And most abortions take place in the first trimester. This bullshit about women running around pregnant for 8 months and then aborting because they feel like it is James O'Keefe, right-wing bullshit, the same people who want you to believe that Planned Parenthood calles pregnancies "parasitic". Derp.

Santorum was on a show called "The Messy Truth"?

Okay, that's pretty funny.
