The Red Pill

Bullshit! A guy walks into a church… a guy walks into a school… a guy walks into a mall… This is America and in America this is a common occurrence. As that great Kenyan liar and black Nazi Satan, President Barack Hussein Obama pointed out the other day, “we as a country, we have to reckon with the fact that this mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.”

Because America is the greatest country in the world! We are exceptional! We have a God-given freedom to kill each other as often as we see fit. Kill our kids in their schools, kill each other in our movie theaters, and kill those uppity black SOBs in their churches. Because…America, that’s why; America, hell yeah, with the confederate battle flag (a symbol of sedition and treason) flying proudly near the capital building in SC and on bumper stickers across the south (and Alaska).

Back to Square One – The Culture War

[Part 3 of a Series]logo 2015 250x325

Michigan has passed a bill that allows anyone in a state funded adoption agency to refuse to let you adopt a child if that person feels allowing that adoption goes against his or her religious beliefs. The bill is meant to keep same-sex marriage couples from adopting, but since stating that explicitly would be illegal discrimination, that part is left out. Apparently it’s ok from the point of view of these so-called legislators to discriminate so long as you try to hide that fact. So now employees can refuse to allow you to adopt for any reason at all so long as they claim that reason is based on their religious beliefs. Continue reading

Back To Square One – Part 2

logo 2015 250x325Marco Rubio has inadvertently said something important. (Pause for this to sink in and the mandatory face-palm.)

Rubio, a Republican presidential candidate with a negative net worth, was baptized a Mormon and is now a Catholic. He is the son of Cuban immigrants who has sworn to undo the present administration’s actions to normalize relations with Cuba. He did significant work on an immigration bill which he now would like to forget. He believes life begins at conception, favors ultrasounds before abortions, voted against stem cell research, and wants to give legal rights to unborn children. Continue reading

Give Me That Old Time Ebola

curmudgeon logo2It has been a long time since I wrote here.   There are some good reasons – and some not so good reasons.

But let’s get this out of the way right at the outset: EBOLA! EBOLAEBOLAEBOLA! Holy shit, we’re all going to die EBOLA! Obama brought EBOLA from Kenya and is using it to spread an epidemic of Ebolonated socialism across the country. First symptoms are: you have compassion for the poor and then your eyes bleed and you die. E-freaking –bola! According to the former head of the South Carolina Republican Party, anyone with Ebola should be immediately SHOT. It’s the only way to save the rest of us. Continue reading

D.C. Reflections, Part 1

Pleasant Progressive1

As most of you readers know, your kind narrator moved from Washington, D.C. to San Francisco, CA earlier this year. Despite the California sunshine and gorgeous views, I miss a lot of my former life in D.C. and never quite adjusted to the cold fog that covers our summer months here in the Bay Area. Continue reading

When A Beer Is Just A Beer

Pleasant Progressive1Over the past few months, I’ve realized that I’m lonely. I have good friends and a fun social life, but as a single lady living far from my family, I’m missing deeper connection—the kind of simultaneously deep and shallow relationship where someone actively wants to hear all of my mundane life details or idiosyncratic thoughts. It’s not really a sad conclusion as much as an interesting one, as it’s allowed for some pretty good insights. Continue reading

Why It’s Way Too Late for Go F*** Yourself

curmudgeon logo2It’s getting pretty difficult to be pleasant in DC these days.  And if you are going to discuss what is going on in DC these days (and who isn’t), it’s pretty tough to be pleasant just about anywhere else either.  If you write, it’s mandatory that you write about what’s going on in DC these days and that means that there’s a good deal of unpleasant stuff being written, “go F*** yourself” being the least of it.
