The Year-End Review...

"This is dedicated to the thousands of brave and loyal Stormtroopers who gave their lives in the defense of the galaxy against the pernicious poison of stupidity. We must persevere and remember: in The Great Galactic War Against Retard, there will, unfortunately, be casualties. I just wish someone would finally design a Death Star that doesn't have the same fucking weakness. I mean, COME ON. It's not like this is complicated, guys. You've had like fifty examples, already. Even the Chinese Overlord  figured it out and his Minions are building Death Stars with no exhaust ports, and out of something better than plastic. For lower wages, too. And why can't our vehicles have wheels? Why legs, Dumbass?" -- The Overlord.

When Reality Ends and Fiction Begins...

"Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of Man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out that window, hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in on the queer things that are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with it's conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable." -- Arthur Conan Doyle

Minor Shitstorms of Stupid...

"Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of our society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs; we should test people for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power." -- P.J. O'Rourke

T'was a Profession, Once...

The picture to the left is of an IBM 3090 Mainframe computing complex. This was "state of the art" in computing circles in 1985, and took up about as much floor space as would a tractor trailer.

It might even have weighed as much, as well.

Conspiracy Theory: Because Stupid People Need a Hobby, Too...

"The main thing I learned about Conspiracy Theory is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is often chaotic. The Truth is that it is not the Illuminati, The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Conspiracy. The Truth is far more frightening -- no one is in control. The World is rudderless." -- Philip Moore

"...if you assume a big enough conspiracy, you can explain everything. Including the cosmos, itself." -- Fritz Leiber

"We see many instances of cities going down like sinking ships to their destruction. There have been such wrecks in the past and surely there will be others in the future, caused by the wickedness of captains and crews, alike. For these are guilty men, whose sin is supreme ignorance of what matters most" -- Plato, Statesmen

You All Suck (Example #26 - Coincidences)

"It is no great wonder if in long process of time, while fortune takes her course hither and thither, numerous coincidences should spontaneously occur. If the number and subjects to be wrought upon be infinite, it is all the more easy for fortune, with such an abundance of material, to effect this similarity of results. Or, if on the other hand, events are limited to the combinations of some finite number, then of necessity, the same must reoccur, and in the same sequence."  -- Plutarch, Plutarch's Lives (Volume 2)

You All Suck (Example #25 -- The New Puritans)

"Just an observation, but it is an indication of just how fucking crazy people are about sex these days that the two biggest "sex scandals" in America in the last decade -- Brett Kavanaugh and Anthony Weiner -- didn't involve any actual sex. At least Slick Willie got his Willie Slick. We're doomed." -- The Overlord

Put the Blame Where It Belongs...

I'm sorry, but it would appear that over the entire course of my lifetime it has been the Left that injected sex, or hyper-sexualized, everything within an inch of it's life and attempted to (or have succeeded) in elevating behavior and attitudes that they now -- for political purposes -- claim to abhor.

You All Suck (Example #24 -- Empire State Edition)

"Remember, it is not enough to be hit or insulted to be harmed, you must believe you are being harmed. If someone succeeds in provoking you, realize that your mind is complicit in the provocation.

"In 1948, psychologists asked over 10,000 adolescents whether they considered themselves to be a very important person. At that point, 12 percent said "Yes". The same question was asked in 2003, and this time it wasn't 12 percent who considered themselves very important, it was 80 percent." -- David Brooks

Douchebag of the Week (Week Ending 8/18/18 - Robert Mueller)

""Nip the shoots of arbitrary power" is the only maxim which can preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, destroyers and betrayers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards. The encroachment upon the American constitution is such as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day expands the circles of the dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit and frugality become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness and downright venality swallow up the whole society." -- John Adams "

I will finish the VICIOUS (someone complained), poorly-written (someone complained) and totally ACCURATE (someone complained) and well-deserved (sez me) expose of the infantile, pot-addled mind of the Libertarian later this week. But I must pause here to address another issue of burning importance.

I'm a Libertarian...And I'm a Doofus (Part I)

"All kinds of people today call themselves “libertarians,” especially something calling itself the New Right, which consists of hippies who are anarchists instead of leftist collectivists; but anarchists are collectivists. Capitalism is the one system that requires absolute objective law, yet libertarians combine capitalism and anarchism. That’s worse than anything the New Left has proposed. It’s a mockery of philosophy and ideology. They sling slogans and try to ride on two bandwagons. They want to be hippies, but don’t want to preach collectivism because those jobs are already taken. But anarchism is a logical outgrowth of the anti-intellectual side of collectivism. I could deal with a Marxist with a greater chance of reaching some kind of understanding, and with much greater respect. Anarchists are the scum of the intellectual world of the Left, which has given them up. So the Right picks up another leftist discard. That’s the libertarian movement. " -- Ayn Rand

Douchebag of the Week (Week Ending 6/30/18 - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez)

"Some apologists try to excuse Marxism by saying that it has ‘never had a chance’. This is far from the truth. Marxism and the Marxist parties have had dozens of chances. In Russia, a Marxist party took power. Within a short time it abandoned Socialism; if not in words, at any rate in the effect of its actions. In most European nations there were during the last months of the first world war and the years immediately thereafter, social crises which left a wide-open door for the Marxist parties: without exception they proved unable to take and hold power. In a large number of countries — Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Austria, England, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, France — the reformist Marxist parties have administered the governments, and have uniformly failed to introduce Socialism or make any genuine step towards Socialism... These parties have, in practice, at every historical test — and there have been many — either failed Socialism or abandoned it. This is the fact which neither the bitterest foe nor the most ardent friend of Socialism can erase. This fact does not, as some think, prove anything about the moral quality of the Socialist ideal. But it does constitute unblinkable evidence that, whatever its moral quality, Socialism is not going to come." -- James Burnham

Douchebag of the Week (Week Ending 6/9/2018) Bill Maher

"In intention, at any rate, the English intelligentsia are Europeanized. They take their cookery from Paris and their opinions from Moscow. In the general patriotism of the country they form a sort of island of dissident thought. England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box." -- George Orwell, "The Lion and The Unicorn"

"You approach Satan's wretched city where you behold a wide plain surrounded by iron walls. Before you are fields full of distress and torment terrible. Burning tombs are littered about the landscape. Inside these flaming sepulchers suffer the heretics, failing to believe in God and the afterlife, who make themselves audible by doleful sighs. You will join the wicked that lie here, and will be offered no respite. The three infernal Furies stained with blood, with limbs of women and hair of serpents, dwell in this circle of Hell." -- description of the City of Dis Pater, Fourth Level of Hell, Dante's Inferno

Classic Lunatic #4 - A Tale of Two Kitties...

I have to do it this way, Kiddies, because otherwise Libtards don't understand. I've discovered recently that a Libtard manages to just barely grasp a simple notion if you present it graphically, and if you can include cat pictures they love it even more.

Now, I know that people are not the same as cats, but bear with me, because I have to explain a thing or two about these animals before I make my argument. Perhaps after this little explanation, the analogy will start to make sense. The cat on the Left is a pampered housecat. The one on the Right  (below) is a feral cat, and yes, my use of Left and Right does have a specific point, and that will become crystal clear as I get to the end of this little screed.

The pictures of the two felines are a metaphor for American Life:

Fluffy, the Cat pictured above, is analogous to today's modern Liberal. She lives entirely by the efforts of others; someone feeds her, she doesn't pay for the food, and all she has to do is probably kick up a fuss, and some dipshit with little native intelligence will bring her a bowl of food and some water, and perhaps the occasional saucer of milk. That's primarily why she's such a fat little fucking bastard.

Mrs. Overlord has contracted pneumonia. Already a dangerous condition, it is even worse for someone who has a respiratory system compromised by muscular dystrophy. Thanks to the good people at New York Presbyterian Hospital (the most awesomest hospital in the Solar System) she is expected to make a full recovery.

We're NOT A "Christian" Country, Part Two...

"Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person's life, freedom of religion affects every individual. Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the "wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society." -- Thomas Jefferson
