Biography

I'm that weirdo. That one guy. Yeah, you know the one. The one from your circle of friends that you have all those agreeable conversations with and then suddenly something comes up and you wonder how the fuck you ever wound up hanging around with someone with such a radically different viewpoint on something so friggin' obvious. Yup. That's me.

Ron Paul supporter determined to outshine anything Democrats might do this election

I… I honestly don’t know what to say.

I am seriously at a loss for words. I can barely get the summary out, because even that sounds so ridiculous that I just want to devolve into murmuring “Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ JesuWHATTHEFUCKISWRONGWITHYOU?!”

A Ron Paul supporter has taken out a full-page ad in the Austin Chronicle asking “strippers, escorts, and ‘young hotties’” to say they’ve had sex with Rick Perry. It also … Read more

Massive riots? Blame Twitter

As I discussed in a previous post, scapegoating is nothing new, and despite repeatedly being told that Europeans are more enlightened than foolish Americans (and usually being told this by other foolish Americans), it seems to be a favorite activity over there.

Scapegoating is certainly nothing new in the UK. The sheer amount of petty laws they’ve passed and enforced maybe a couple of times is essentially a symptom of this… a sign of a … Read more

On more reasoned and mature discourse from Leftists

As you may not have heard, Glenn Beck and his family were assaulted in a New York City park. Now, first, before I get into it, I will clarify that when I say “assault”, it seems to have been only in the legal sense of the word… what happened to them was assault by the legal definition, and was from the moment the wine was spilled on his wife. That’s assault, brotha, even if it’s … Read more

China tortures prisoners by making them play World of Warcraft

Anyone who’s ever played an online game with a trade system… especially World of Warcraft… knows there are plenty of people willing to sell you in-game currency in return for real world currency. Which is usually against the game’s terms of service for any number of reasons beneficial to the game company and the player, but people do it anyway. (It’s gotten to the point that I’ve actually wondered if some of my City of … Read more

Scapegoating: Not Just for Backwards Micronations Anymore

Not too long ago there were a few stories here and there, rather bemused over a small nation where the ruling council, in a bit of disgrace, decided to have a literal scapegoat ritual. It wasn’t a very big deal, and I can’t even seem to find it in the news archives anymore. (As you might imagine, googling things like “scapegoat” and “small nation” tends to turn up mostly stuff like people blubbering about how … Read more

RIAA doesn’t like the 4th either

Well, it looks like the recent issues with the fourth amendment and protections versus search & seizure has come to the attention of the RIAA, who has decided they’d really like to get in on some of that constitution-violating, as is so often their wont.

The RIAA has been pushing the state of California to pass a new law that would allow completely warrantless searches for law enforcement, allowing them to enter and

On Poisonous Political Rhetoric

This will be a short post, more because I don’t think there’s much that can be said on the subject. Sometimes there’s no point to ranting, tearing down, or strawmanning, when your opponent is perfectly capable of setting themselves on fire.

Basically, it is this: Michelle Obama has invited in fellow Rev. Wright devotee “Common” to the White House to read some of his poetry. His poems have included such subject matter as the glorifying … Read more
