What’s Missing From This Photo of Politicians Deciding the Future of Women’s Health?

Go ahead … guess.

Nevermind, I’ll just say it. Sausagefest!


Trump Trash Can

March 23, 2017

Exactly what it sounds like. I think this could sell very well in Latin America (especially in Mexico) where most toilets throughout the entire region cannot flush paper. So, you wad up used toilet paper and put it in a covered trash can next to the toilet.

What trash can could be better for the purpose?

P.S. Garbage man. Garbage man. Does whatever a garbage can.

P.P.S. I’m not asking that anyone send money. I just think it’s funny.


Why I Know There Are No Gods

March 22, 2017

Background:

Formally, I classify myself as a gnostic atheist, meaning I know there are no gods. Most atheists (from what I read online) appear to be agnostic atheists, people who are without gods but who do not claim to know there are no gods. Some people who fit this description simply call themselves agnostic. But, on formal forums, like reddit’s atheism subreddit, all who are without gods are atheists and agnostic or gnostic is a statement of whether they know or have doubt. Similarly, they allow for agnostic theists, those who believe in god(s) but have some doubt.

To begin our discussion, we have to classify gods.

Steve Bannon: Scarier Than My Worst Fears

March 17, 2017

Yes. We all know he’s a white supremacist. But, I had no idea he was bad enough to publicly express a positive opinion of a known Nazi Supporter.

My Next Sneakers are Liberal, Sexy, and Piss of Religious Folks

January 17, 2017

See link below for article about how this ad pisses off an Australian Christian group and what they’re doing about it. Me? I’m going to buy Australia’s Volley sneakers when my current ones wear out. The company’s liberal/progressive policies will definitely get my vote. And, I vote with my wallet.

The Fireside Tweets … or Perhaps Fireside Angry Reactionary Tweets (FARTs)

January 14, 2017

FDR’s Fireside Chats are still within living memory, albeit not mine. But, of course, I’ve heard about them. I’m not sure if that’s true of younger generations.

So, now we about to have another president who communicates informally to the people. But, Trump is no FDR! So, what do we get instead?

The Trump Tweet Tracker — a blog post from The Atlantic

Instead of fireside chats, we get fireside tweets. And, they’re usually angry tweets lashing out at whoever dared to say something even slightly negative about our country’s largest and most insecure ego.

And, since all of his tweets and policies are extremely reactionary, trying to take our country back to some mythical golden age when white men could openly hate everyone else, I am calling these tweets the Fireside Angry Reactionary Tweets, FARTs.

Feel free to use the term FARTs for any or all of Trump’s tweets without the need to give credit or worry about copyright infringement. But, I reserve the right to continue to use the term as well.


Petition: Employ the Electoral College to avoid a Donald Trump presidency, as was intended by the founders

November 10, 2016

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/employ-electoral-college-avoid-donald-trump-presidency

This is what the electoral college was put in place to do. It was always intended to protect us from ourselves. The founders understood that the greatest risk to democracy was that “we the people” would vote against having a democracy.

If the electoral college refuses to do their jobs, “You’re fired!”
