The Crawling Chaos

The blind idiot daemon sultan who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.

Fuckface Von Clownstick works too.

I consider myself a member of the Sarah Silverman Brigade of the Bernie Revolutionary Forces.

I continue to support Bernie - for chairman of the Senate appropriations committee and leader of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

And I have no reservations about voting a straight Democratic ticket come November.

You can call me a "Bro" if you like, but I've never been a "Buster", and neither have most Bernie supporters. I think they're just being ridiculous, and there's nothing more that needs to be said about it.

It's a shame DU has become such a hostile and anti-Democratic environment.

It had such great potential, but as an experiment in mob rule it's degenerated into a blood sport for the most belligerent and fascistic bullies, with a distinct anti-Semitic undertone. We're already past the point where honest discussion and debate is possible.

What I find truly interesting

is the implication that the thinly veiled bigotry and hate-mongering that's become so prevalent here is so vile and disgraceful by real-world standards that the Democratic Party is repulsed by it and seeks to avoid any possible contact lest they be tarred by association with such disreputable filth.

There's been much discussion of late about how DU has changed over the years, perhaps the time has come to consider if the name "Democratic" still applies, or whether it has become a safe haven for something else.

I think the best way to promote progressive policies is to support Democratic candidates.

I don't always agree with everything they do, and sometimes I'm disgusted by how cowardly and conservative they can be. But I recognize that they're the only chance we have to make real progress, and I don't want to add to the constant shitstorm of abuse and vilification coming from the organized Republican reactionaries who just want to drag them down.

As much as I hate having to settle for the lesser evil at times, I've lived long enough to see what happens when the greater evil gets a free pass, and I know it makes enough of a difference to be worth fighting for.

So I don't really feel comfortable siding with either the bashers or the cheerleaders when things start getting nasty around here, and I don't see much point in wading into the crossfire. The term "third way" comes to mind, but that's already been appropriated by stealth Republicans. The term "middle way" has some interesting spiritual resonance but just seems wishy-washy in a political context.

Maybe I should start a "no-team" team for people who just don't fit into the extreme team purity squads and don't always agree on everything. Then again, maybe that's what most of the Democratic Party already is.

I dined with the Duchess of Lee

Who asked; "Do you fart when you pee?"

I replied, with some wit;

"Do you belch when you shit?"

And considered it one up for me.

Sorry folks, this is just getting too insane to take seriously.

Another candidate for The Journal of Irreproducible Results

These "reefer madness" propaganda pronouncements are consistently characterized by:

Politically biased agenda

Overt financial conflict of interests (funding from DEA or British political office)

Deliberate use of invalid methodology

Deliberate introduction of uncontrolled variables

No valid control group

Statistically insignificant sample size

Sensationalized claims made directly to tabloid press without publication in a legitimate peer reviewed journal

Sensationalized claims from a single source not confirmed by any other independent research and contradicted by previous large scale studies using valid methodology

This appears on its face to be just more of the same old lies from the same old liars. I expect that its premeditated fraudulence will become obvious once the details of its methodology and funding are exposed.

That's a gross exaggeration - what we are is a second world nation.

Although we've fallen below the standard of living of the industrialized first world democracies, we're still well above the crushing poverty of the undeveloped agrarian third world.

Where we are now is more like Russia and China: our economy is industrialized, but we no longer enjoy the economic advantages of democracy because our government is controlled by a corrupt, self-serving elite that sucks all the real wealth and growth out of the country for itself.

"I got old & shit in my pants"

Here We Go 'Round the Mulberry Bush

I got old & shit in my pants
shit in my pants
shit in my pants
I got old & shit in my pants
shit in my pants again

We got old & shit in our pants
shit in our pants
shit in our pants
We got old & shit in our pants
shit in our pants again

You'll be lucky if you get old
& shit in your pants
& shit in your pants
You'll be lucky if you get old
& shit in your pants again
