The Tick ( New Amazon series ): Anyone else see it?

What did you think?

I laughed myself silly.

Even my "I don't like anything" kid thought it was the funniest thing he'd seen in a long time.



"Arthur, are we going to have to have "The Talk?" "

Jefferson Davis Monument Tarred and Feathered in Arizona

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/jefferson-davis-monument-tarred-feathered



A monument commemorating the only president of the Confederacy was vandalized with tar and feathers this week, a local Gold Canyon, Arizona TV station reported Thursday.

The Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway monument sits along U.S. 60 and local authorities are investigating the incident, KSAZ reported. This is the second time a Confederate monument in Arizona was defaced this week and the most recent in a string of vandalism of Confederate memorials across the country.

As a Liberal that goes by the credo "Why can't we all just get along?", I'd like to propose that we get together and chip in to have it cleaned up.







With Confederate currency.

Do not permit a false equivalency

No matter how many times the "Anti-Fa" are claimed to be part of the Left, they are not.

They are Anarchists; antithetical to ALL forms of government.

The Right has gone into 'what-about-ism' claiming that the Antifa are part of the Left, but they are not. Antifa is a third "side" in the political system, sowing discord and damaging ALL the others.

The Right has succumbed to (or been manipulated into) a binary Us-Versus-Them mindset, where everyone that is not them is The Big Scary Left. This permits them to have an attitude that "Everyone is out to get me", therefore everyone else is The Enemy.

Don't permit the "opponent" to make the rules for the conflict. They're not smart enough to get it right.

Is anyone watching American Gods ?

This may sound like it doesn't belong here, but please bear with me...

There is a scene where Laura Moon, one of the main characters, kicks a guy in the 'nads during a fight.

The guys' spine, ribcage, and skull burst from the top of his head. (She's dead, but she's having a bit of a problem with that)

She later makes the remark that "the last time I kicked a guy in the balls, my foot didn't stop until it reached his throat."

Who would you like to see in a room with her, when she's in a grumpy mood?
Metaphorically, of course.

1) Donny Two Scoops, of course.

2) "Eddie Munster" Ryan, for general evil

3) Mitch McChinless, for aggravated evil.

4) Add your own...

What if animals were round?


It's a weird jungle out there.

And funny.

On the "Crowd Size Controversy": Let them die on this hill

If the incoming administration wants to fight this battle, let them. Make them expose themselves for the liars and toadies they are.

Make them show their lack of credibility, their willingness to lie about the most trivial, easily disproved things. Let them de-legitimize themselves publicly and emphatically. Let them lie to everyone over trivialities, and expose them ruthlessly. Expose their lack of contact with reality for all the world to see, literally.

The sooner their mendacity and incompetence is brought fully into the light for all to see, the better we all are.

If they want to attempt to bully the press into submission, the rejection HAS to be swift and emphatic. If they are permitted to cow the press into only parroting the official dogma, then we are all lost.

The Voltaire quote paraphrased as "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." is the center of this. We must stop all attempts to begin a journey down a slippery slope. We must not stand for this.

"Alternative Facts" are Lies. No more, no less. And they have to called out as such immediately and forcefully.

Don't let them start to gaslight us. We know the truth, and they are not speaking it.

They must be called out, they must be ridiculed, they must be mocked ruthlessly and without end.

This is The United States of America, not some mind controlled cult of personality built around a sociopathic narcissist to serve only his ends and whims.

Our strength come from US, all together, not from one self-absorbed individual.

Let their credibility and reputation die on this hill. Let them be exposed as what they are for all the world to see.

We do not have to turn back from a bad road that we did not start down.

Beware the fury of a patient man.

Often attributed as a 17th Century translation of a Latin maxim first recorded in the 1st Century B.C.E.

Meaning that the reaction from someone that is not quick to anger, waiting and planning their 'revenge', is much more terrible than the reaction from the hot-tempered.

Plan and consider your actions.

Do not react from fear.

Dispense Justice rather than exact Revenge.

Plan for all the ramifications of an action, so that ONLY a desired and SPECIFICALLY targeted outcome is attained.

Make your weapon a poniard, rather than a mob.

Be an assassin rather than a ravening horde.

Pick the exactly correct tool for the job: no more, no less. Apply it to the specific place necessary with only that force absolutely required.

Do not act from fear, but cold-blooded Necessity.

When ONLY one person or group is precisely targeted with no 'collateral damage', the results stand stark and unmistakable reminder of the consequences of their offenses.

Do the research so that only the guilty party is dealt with, no more, no less.

Your 'revenge' will be all the more terrifying.

On an odd Youtube chain today, found this favorite from long ago

I have a lot of problems with the term "Basket of deplorables"

A quantity of waste that toxic and large should be contained in a vessel other than a mere "basket".

Something very large, VERY tightly sealed, and immune to corrosion, bursting, etc...

A simple basket isn't going to do the job with this stuff.

We're going to need something made out of Votes, Vigilance, and Commitment.

We must consign these people and their ideologies the figurative dustbin of history they so richly deserve.

WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS.

We must make that known to all with the utmost emphasis.

And we must guard against its resurgence, whatever it takes. This is IMPORTANT.

Freedom isn't free. Its benefits carry with them responsibilities.

That is something all too many have forgotten. To use a quote of a Libertarian favorite author, Robert A Heinlein, against themselves; "TANSTAAFL: There Ain't No Such Thing As a Free Lunch."

On November 9th, the work starts to get hard. We have to do it, to be sure it's done right.

I'm REALLY looking forward to Clinton / Trump debates

It should be 90+ minutes of absolutely gut-busting comedy.

Hillary calmly answering, and Trump jumping up and down, hooting and flinqing feces.

What kind of alcohol goes best with popcorn?



Thom Hartmann made the observation (to paraphrase) "Everything we know about Hillary we got from right-wing radio and Faux news."

She's breaking that up.


I'm really stoked about the future, but I KNOW we have to work for it.
