So the folks at Sadly, No! (D. Aristophanes to be exact) have been having a little fun with some supposed ‘comedy’ site, IMAO. I guess the crowning achievement of these clowns is to suggest we nuke the moon, but I digress.
Anyway, in the above-linked post, there is a link to this piece of comedy gold!
Could someone, anyone tell me when any man ass raping another man is funny? At all? Or let’s reduce it a little:
Can someone, anyone, tell me when rape is funny? At all?
But wait! This is hilarious! Because one man is one of a handful of successful black men! That is so funny. Just think of the self-satisfied grin on W’s…
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE???!>?1!>!@>!???
So if that image isn’t enough…
Really imagine it. YEE HAW!
…he wants you to think about it, down to the sweat and dribbles of Santorum.
Yep, that’s the state of conservative humor! Heckuva job, Brownie!
First of all, who brought the cat?
I guess that I need to give props to the people who blog regularly. Aside from the difficulty of coming up with material, I also seem to have confidence issues. as in: “What do I have to say? there are so many excellent bloggers oput there who seem to cover so many topics so well, what do I have to offer?”
I usually seem to do better answering people’s questions. Maybe that’s what I’ll do. Start an advise column of sorts. Who knows, maybe it’ll work.
So how do I get people to submit questions to me, so I may have material to answer? That’s the trick, huh?
So if you happen to read this and have a dilemma, write me. I’ll promise to respond quickly.
“The consequences of committing high treason, if you were a man of the extreme Right, was not unduly heavy, despite the law, and a good many anti-republicans took notice of it.”
…Another reason I’m not blogging much is that I am wading through The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. It seems an apropos book for right now, although it is laborious and not very well received by academics.
I guess the scariest part is the similarities I see with late 20’s-earl 30’s Germany and the US now. There are some big differences, as well, but anyone really paying attention could have spotted the danger pretty early back then…Unfortunately, no one seemed to be paying attention until it was too late.

So I’m an estimator. The nature of my work seems to be all or nothing. So lately I’ve been really busy and unable to post much. I apologize to my 2-3 readers for not bringing you daily blogs. When this work load passes, I’ll be better. I promise.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m somewhat fascinated by the Big Dick. I don’t know what it is, I’m just smitten. Maybe its his range. He’s something, alright.
Update: I didn’t put this genius piece of art together. In fact, I forgot where I got it (Nice journalistic integrity, huh?) It does have a watermark, however. I think that clears me of any legal jujus, right?
Update II: The genius in question!!!1!
Update III: The kitty in question:

I’ll certainly write more about the Brown Scare in the future.
Oh, and BTW- Impeach Cheney!
Dennis Perrin has a blog today that poses an interesting question. How are Democrats any better than Republicans? I have some surface, ‘lesser of two evils’ sort of responses, but is it the party, or the system? If it is the system, what can be done?
This is an ongoing conversation. The obvious answer is ‘Revolution!’. But how will that work? Violence begets violence. Sure it offers a short term solution, but the underlying problems don’t go away.
During the Revolutionary war, the Colonial Congress issued bonds, or IOUs, that they never even intended to pay off. In fact, they issued close to $241 million of them. Check out this quote from Ben Franklin:
“This currency, as we manage it, is a wonderful machine. It performs its office when we issue it. And when we are obligated to issue an excessive quantity, it pays itself off by depreciation.”
The money in question was a six dollar bill. At the beginning of the war, $6 was a private soldiers pay for an entire month. By the end of the war, you couldn’t even pay for a pound of butter with the same amount. (h/t to History Detectives)
So here we have one of our most esteemed Founders willfully duping the citizenry for the good of the Country. It is endemic to the American Way. Don’t worry your pretty little head about the government. They have your best interests at heart.
Yeah, Right! I certainly feel better.
