I got nothin’

It was Mardi Gras, last week, which means some of you might be doing Lent maybe.

Also, (after the jump)Perfume released a new video. Very cute song. Better than some of their recent material.  I didn’t know Tokyo had a 1,000 story three-sided skyscraper with single person glass elevators on each side. The stuff you learn from music videos.

Also, the Jeff Sessions – Russians thing is complete BS. Bernie Sanders honeymooned in the USSR and hung a Soviet flag in his office as Mayor of Burlington. And we’re supposed to believe that Democrats suddenly realized that Russians are the bad guys? And now, they literally — not figuratively — want to start World War III over “Russian hacking.” (But they never gave a damn when the Chinese hacked the OPM.)

The Mike Pence e-mail thing is also complete BS. It was totally legal, and he wasn’t hiding anything like selling influence to foreign government in exchange for donations to his sham charity.

Judith Dein is one of the radical left federal judges who undercut President Trump’s EO on limiting the ability of migrants from high-risk terror states from entering the USA. Someone dug up an old story about her husband that is pretty interesting.

You Can Tell a Lot About People by What Outrages Them

It occurred to me on my afternoon run that the amount of outrage Democrats expressed over Donald Trump appointing an accomplished black neurosurgeon to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development was exactly equal to the amount of outrage conservatives expressed when Barack Obama gave $10 Billion to the terrorist state of Iran.

Interesting, that.

On Not Giving the F-Word

Posted by V the K at 12:42 pm - January 14, 2017.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

Read the whole thing, but this gets to the heart of it. (Edited because we don’t need to use the “New Jersey comma” at this blog to make our point.)

Eric Hoffer once wrote: “A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.” [Emphasis added]

The problem with people who hand out [fracks] like ice cream at a [gorram] summer camp is that they don’t have anything more [frack]worthy to dedicate their [fracks] to.

Think for a second. You’re at a grocery store. And there’s an elderly lady screaming at the cashier, berating him for not accepting her 30-cent coupon. Why does this lady give a [frack]? It’s just 30 cents.

Well, I’ll tell you why. That old lady probably doesn’t have anything better to do with her days than to sit at home cutting out coupons all morning. She’s old and lonely. Her kids are dickheads and never visit. She hasn’t had sex in over 30 years. Her pension is on its last legs and she’s probably going to die in a diaper thinking she’s in Candyland. She can’t fart without extreme lower back pain. She can’t even watch TV for more than 15 minutes without falling asleep or forgetting the main plotline.

So she snips coupons. That’s all she’s got. It’s her and her damn coupons. All day, every day. It’s all she can give a [frack] about because there is nothing else to give a [frack] about. And so when that pimply-faced 17-year-old cashier refuses to accept one of them, when he defends his cash register’s purity the way knights used to defend maidens’ virginities, you can damn well bet granny is going to erupt and verbally hulk smash his fucking face in. Eighty years of [fracks] will rain down all at once, like a fiery hailstorm of “Back in my day” and “People used to show more respect” stories, boring the world around her to tears in her creaking and wobbly voice.

If you find yourself consistently giving too many [fracks] about trivial shit that bothers you — your ex-girlfriend’s new Facebook picture, how quickly the batteries die in the TV remote, missing out on yet another 2-for-1 sale on hand sanitizer — chances are you don’t have much going on in your life to give a legitimate [frack] about. And that’s your real problem. Not the hand sanitizer.

Why I Prefer Furries to Trannies

Mostly, because they aren’t going around whining about pronouns and demanding to use the wrong bathrooms. You don’t see many parents insisting their kids are furries so they can get on the morning chat shows and have Savannah Guthrie tell them how brave they are.

And as long as furries don’t demand that everybody has to change everything to accommodate their kink, so long as I don’t have to learn any new pronouns (except maybe “Good Boy,”) I am totally okay with them.

Keep doing stuff like this, and y’all will totally win me over.

Powerline has a great rundown of the week in memes and cartoons, but they missed a couple.


Related to that, some Snowflake Barista called the cops on someone who requested ‘Trump’ on his Starbucks cup.



I was not a Trump supporter before the election, and neither was my formerly liberal partner. But the obnoxious reaction from the left — cast of Hamilton, this includes you — has made both of us reluctant Trump supporters simply because we don’t want to be identified with the horrible people and idiot celebrities who are opposing him.

Random Stuff that the Internet Coughed Up This Morning

I guess this means The Donald and Grandma Barker won’t be campaigning in South Carolina: Police chief: Clowns ‘terrorizing public’ in S.C. will be arrested.

Also, National Geographic asks: “Why Are So Many BASE Jumpers Dying?”

Um, perhaps Physics?

Given that its NatGeo, I’m surprised the answer isn’t “Climate Change.”

A religious satire site finds Six Hidden Gospel Messages in ‘Stranger Things.’ For example: “The Upside-Down is a clear reference to the United Methodist Church. The Upside-Down is portrayed as a cold, dreary place with not a single soul to be found. That’s an obvious allusion to United Methodist churches around the nation.”

If you’re a fan of large, ugly, crappily built homes (and, frankly, who isn’t?), the McMansion Hell Blog is for you.

I love the fact that I bought a solid 4000 SF renovated church for a fraction of what these drywall-and-Tyvek monstrosities cost.

$624,000 in Massachusetts gets you a house with this bathroom. (And if the kitchen is any indication, the homeowner owned a lot of stock in John Deere.)

“We have to accept a little mess.”

Posted by V the K at 2:33 pm - August 24, 2016.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

Over behind the super-secret, members only paywall at Richochet, a comment that struck a chord with me.

I saw an op-ed piece written in the 1960s when suburbia was discovering zoning laws, the point of which has stayed with me ever since. The writer, a Jewish guy who lived in the Chappaqua New York area, had a brilliant mind, and the piece was great to read. He was talking about the problems that would occur with rigid zoning laws–wow, did he foresee sprawl. Everyone now is going back to mixed-used zoning. He perfectly predicted the result of the zoning laws that were being passed at that time. His op-ed piece ended by saying, “We have to accept a little mess.”

What an awesome philosophy. “We have to accept a little mess.” Meaning, Government can’t control everything and it shouldn’t try.

“We have to accept a little mess.”

Amen, brother.

It seems every time the Government addresses a problem (and especially when the problem is designated a “crisis”) they end up not wasting loads of money, not solving the problem, often making things worse, and then demanding more Government intervention to solve the new problems they created from their approach to the old problem.

Unfortunately, the busybody, control freak progressive left could never abide the thought of people deciding things for themselves and making choices they don’t agree with. They can’t imagine a state that… while staying out of the bedroom, of course … inserts itself into every business transaction, every social activity, and indeed every human interaction, down to policing the very language that comes out of our mouths.

“Think of all the little messes people would make if we gave them the freedom to choose for themselves,” they say.

We can deal with the little messes.

It’s gigantic, out-of-control Government we can’t deal with.

Biitter Feminist Blames the Patriarchy for Alcoholism

Posted by V the K at 8:50 am - August 23, 2016.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

A feminist interprets every interaction with a male as a “microaggression” and an excuse for her (and all women’s) drinking problem.

I round up some girlfriends and we spend hundreds of dollars in a hipster bar, drinking rye Manhattans and eating tapas and talking about the latest crappy, non-gender-blind things that have happened to us in meetings and on business trips and at performance review time. They toast me for taking one for the team. And when we are good and numb we Uber home, thinking Look at all we’ve earned! That bar with the twinkly lights. That miniature food. This chauffeured black car. We are tough enough to put up with being ignored and interrupted and underestimated every day and laugh it off together. We’ve made it. This is the good life. Nothing needs to change.

What was she angry about?  Well, on this particular occasion, it’s because she had to serve on a panel with three male co-workers to provide orientation to incoming summer interns. And her male co-workers had the absolute gall to say that women were valuable assets to the company.

“The thing about this place,” he says, “is it’s a meritocracy. And merit is gender-blind.” He smiles at me and I stare back. Silent balefulness is all I have to offer, but his smile wavers so I know I’ve pierced some level of smug.

And she apparently works in an office obsessively devoted to Mad Men Cosplay.

At the office, every desk near mine has a bottle of wine or liquor on it in case people are too lazy to walk the 50 feet to one of the well-stocked communal bars we’ve built on our floor.

We get it. She’s miserable, and she drank to cope with her misery (as all women do) and now that she has stopped drinking she sees that it was all the fault of the patriarchy and had nothing whatsoever to do with her own self-absorption. Because that’s what modern feminism teaches women: Put yourself at the center of the universe and blame men for any and all unhappiness.

On Being Nice

Posted by V the K at 2:34 pm - August 7, 2016.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

This weekend, I spent some time with another gay christian libertarian — a combination that rivals the Australian Hairy Nosed Wombat for rarity. He’s letting an unemployed, down-on-his-luck human being crash in his spare bedroom. Over breakfast in a local mom-and-pop diner, we got into a conversation about charity toward others. How we had helped other people out in the past, sometimes with good results, more often not, sometimes, people straight up took advantage. We had no hesitation about extending charity when opportunity arose, but we also found room to criticize people whose form of charity only perpetuated the dependency and low state of others.

But the central focus of our conversation was “Why be nice to people.” Both being of the Christian persuasion, we were both very clear that the Gospel inspires charity. But we also agreed that there is a misunderstanding among non-believers (and an unfortunate number of Christians, unfortunately) that being charitable toward others is how you buy your ticket to Heaven. That’s not how it’s supposed to work. Becoming a disciple of Christ changes your heart such that helping out others just becomes something you do. People who treat it like a deposit in the Bank of Karma are missing the point. People who think Christians only do it to win favor from God are also missing the point. It’s just good to be good.

The Highly Selective Internet Rage Machine

Posted by V the K at 8:22 pm - June 9, 2016.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

The Internet Rage Machine has turned its livid gaze on a white male Stanford College Student who received a six-month prison sentence for sexually assaulting a woman behind a dumpster.

The media narrative is that an evil white cis-gendered male jock [four things the left hates] found an unconscious woman behind a dumpster and raped her. The facts of the case, as usual, are a little blurrier. The man and the woman were at a party together, they were both very intoxicated, she left the party with him willingly and made out behind the dumpster with him, willingly, before passing out. She passed out, he kept going. The details of the physical assault are somewhat vague but the conviction indicates he penetrated her with a ‘foreign object.’ This may have fallen short of what Whoopi Goldberg would call “rape-rape” if it had been done by someone she is more sympathetic to.

This is not a defense of anything he did. Even the most charitable reading of the circumstances indicates the guy committed a form of sexual assault and earned legal consequences. It’s pretty cut-and-dried. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. One is just observing that The Narrative simply omits mitigating circumstances that might make a six-month sentence seem a little less outrageous. Or, not.

[Over/Under on the first troll to ignore the previous five or six sentences and claim that this post is defending rape?]

Anyway, the judge who passed down the sentence and his family are receiving death threats; because that’s the language of disagreement in the 21st Century.

Whoopi, by the way, has said she thinks the judge in the case was racially biased and all judges are racially biased. So, she finally agrees with Donald Trump on something.

I wonder if any of the people who are outraged over this sentence are outraged that Historic First (TM) Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton helped a man who raped a twelve year old girl escape punishment on a legal technicality?

Probably not. That’s not how the Outrage Machine works.

Hillary’s defense of a child-rapist is not an outrage because she’s a left-wing Democrat woman.

Mitigating circumstances, one could say.

Comments on Various Items in the News This Morning

Trump bailed out of the Thursday debate because Fox would not remove Megyn Kelly. FoxNews should have someone program a Donald Trump Quote generator based on an algorithm of his responses in previous debates. Megyn Kelly could pose it questions and it would spew out a random string of superlatives and hyperbole.

The parent company of FoxNews donates millions of dollars to a group that advocates Amnesty and Open Borders. So, Trump may have a point in calling them biased. But if he can “work with” Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, as he said, why not Megyn Kelly?

Tolerant Progressive Chris Matthews asks ‘Who’s going to watch a debate between the two Cuban guys?’ Definitely not the same people who want to watch a debate between two senile white Socialists and a human Ken doll.

Illegal immigrants love Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley. Mainly because they are promising to take the most money from other people and buy them things with it. It’s too bad for them illegals aren’t allowed to vote. (Wink, wink.)

When Trump said he would make Mexico pay for his wall, everybody said that was unrealistic and stupid. But Ho Chi Minh Sanders making ‘The Rich’ pay for Free Healthcare, Free College, Free Daycare and Free Everything for everybody including all the illegals …. that’s Visionary!

CNN says Bernie Sanders has an 18% chance of winning the Republican nomination. Given the state of the GOP Establishment, they may actually be right about that.

A Democrat city councilman in Indiana has been sworn in while in jail on murder and drug charges. And you wonder why Democrats don’t care that Hillary used an illegal email server to cover up her influence peddling?
