Like a toddler screaming "no, no, no" to bedtime, Dickhead has a problem with anything he doesn't like. Only he doesn't scream "no, no, no" rather idiot labels things as "fake". To be fair, with his degree of mental illness he can only really keep track of things in two categories "great" and "fake". There's also "bad" but that's just used to mix things up and prove to people that his brain isn't in a similar state as an abandoned kitchen sponge found at the back of the cabinet under the sink.

Actually that analogy is pretty dead-on.

But Dickhead is who he is and the delusional/message-senders who thought he was just *pretending* to be craze were deluded themselves. By now everyone with any sanity knows full well that Dickhead is crazy as a coot and a danger to himself and others. By now the fear and shock of his election has worn off and everyone just grips their chair with increasing anxiety in the hope that nothing goes nuclear and the stupidity emanating from the white house is just absorbed by the continuing in-capacitance of the Senate.

Of course there ARE people who are still happy that the loony-toon (sorry, apologies to WB) was elected, and THEY are a special class themselves: the religious right. These are people who have convinced themselves that all the evil this person physically represents (greed, promiscuity, sloth... you know the whole lot of seven) somehow is a demonstration of their deity's gracious love. Yes, the devil himself with orange hair (hint, hint) shows up saying everything they want to hear and they LOVE him enough to praise him at their holiday meals and prayers.

On the surface that might seem contradictory to a rational, normal human being but one has to remember, these are people who still hold onto the belief that Jesus is the son of a patriarchal god who (somehow) was born from a human virgin (and also the world was created in seven days, the list goes on). Basically these people are as delusional as Dickhead and happy to have someone as fucked up and irrational as themselves in charge because it validates their overly-vocal world view.

One the one hand, good for them, they're having their day. On the other, good for us, because wasting time, effort, friendship, support and sustenance to people who would rather pray over your corpse instead of saving your life is a valuable wakeup call.

The problem with rationality is that it comes with a set of moral standards which answer to THE highest authority: yourself. You live, day in and out with the memory of what you did right and wrong and no one saying "oh it's ok, just give me money and you can forget you were horrible" is going to make it better. The real challenge is to realize that not everyone out there is like you, and no everyone deserves the benefits you can provide. This is not justification for being evil to someone, but it is justification for walking away when you know they're using religion as a crutch to justify their own evil, willful ignorance and arrogance. Message simplified: fuck them, fuck religious, dogmatic freaks and know them by what they say "reality is fake and gods bless tRump."

Because they can. And, goddamnit, they fucking well should.

More than 300 actresses, writers and directors have launched a project to help fight sexual harassment in the film industry and other workplaces.

The initiative, which is called Time's Up, was announced via a full-page advert printed in the New York Times.

The Hollywood project is described as a "unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere".[..]

The money raised will be used to fund legal support for both female and male victims of sexual harassment at work.

The project is aimed primarily at those who are unable to meet the payments to defend themselves, such as agricultural or factory workers, caretakers and waitresses. (BBC)

Maybe they didn't get paid as much as their male counterparts, maybe they didn't get as many lines, maybe they didn't even get as many opportunities as they got older but they have money, a cause and initiative. Females, human and non, tend to band together when threatened. Maybe it took a little longer for humans, rather than monkeys or panthers, to realize the threat, but they have and they've gained courage from each other. A time of isolationism and silent tolerance of misogyny is over and women will help women.

At least sane ones who WANT the world to be better for their sisters (aka, not Twats for tRump.)

It's been almost a year since the Pink Pussy Uprising (aka Women's March) where women (and men) showed the world just what they thought of the mistake their nation made. Since then changes, small and large, have been sprouting like spring weeds in the winter of American discontent. Winter will end eventually, but the weeds, the change, the fury and the future will be different. And the most powerful, famous and capable women are taking point. Fear them.

If you're not an asshole to people you don't know.
If you're not greedy for stuff you already have plenty of.
If you take the time to THINK about what you hear, rather than just embracing it because you want to believe.
If you're aware of how your actions impact others.
If you're willing to embrace change for the betterment of everyone else rather than yourself.
If you're not Dickhead Donald or one of his loathesome fans.
If you're willing to be friends with someone you haven't even met.
If you think America The Future can be better than America The Past.

If those things, then Happy New Year to you. Let's get going, there's a LOT of work to do.

It's been a hate fueled year. Hating and haters. Anger and arrogance. The First Year of the Great Ignorance is almost over, what I predict will be the last year of the Great White Hurrah, where ignorance and short-sighted white males rallied together in middle and southern states to proclaim their fat, florid anger at being white males. Not sexy. Not smart. Just a vast army of Archie Bunkers who wanted to BELIEVE they were Burt Reynolds, JFK and Daniel Boone all wrapped into one. Not balding. Not lame. Not a soon-to-be minority of never-was rather than has-been's.

White, patriarchal America moved to assisted living over a decade ago, but there are lots of folks who never got the memo, lots of folks who would rather see America crumble, anarchy and perverse, pathological "leadership" than the continuation of it's natural evolution. A nation of immigrants was Ok back when their ancestors came here, but not now, because "we're full", "why do we need more people", "america first". The same shit-stupid mentality that prevailed just before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Because isolationism worked SO fucking well back then, and SO fucking well now, decades later when we're even more connected around the world than ever before.

It's too fucking late to turn back, unless all you fat, white, drawling, drooling fuckers are willing to turn off your TVs and throw away your cell phones. I DARE you to try. I really do.

I read recently that when violence is inflicted on those who would choose not to be violent, that it becomes the new standard. After decades of vitriol the passivist-liberal, the home maker and brownie baker, the African-american matriarch and mother took up arms and started flipping the bird to assholes proudly sporting tRump stickers on their bumpers. Hate came to America to remind EVERYONE that it's not a value but a reaction that everyone is entitled to, even those who prefer to use their words rather than their fists.

So here's to you, tRump voter, your success, your failed relationships and your bleak future where you will forever be remembered for what you are: a failure. The year may be almost over, but the hate lingers on.

Just kidding, I can do both. Just looking for excuses for being lazy. That's another lie, I just hate looking at the news so much I don't. At least when I'm on holiday.

They say time heals. They say that people move on. They say that your mind can change if you just give someone a chance.

Well. Guess what?

It hasn't. Further, I hate you all more now than I did before. I don't care if you've changed your mind or if you're just as devoted now as you were before. Fuck you. Fuck everyone like you. Fuck your opinions and your small dicks. Fuck your greed. Fuck your homophobia. Fuck your racism. Fuck your ignorance.

Fuck you.

And yes, Happy New Year. I hope you choke on a dick.

Abstract: Patreon decided to jack up fees to make a little more profit (oh, and also give a bonus to creators). People went apeshit and Patreon backed down.

Creators and Patrons,

We’ve heard you loud and clear. We’re not going to rollout the changes to our payments system that we announced last week. We still have to fix the problems that those changes addressed, but we’re going to fix them in a different way, and we’re going to work with you to come up with the specifics, as we should have done the first time around. Many of you lost patrons, and you lost income. No apology will make up for that, but nevertheless, I’m sorry. It is our core belief that you should own the relationships with your fans. These are your businesses, and they are your fans. (Patreon)

So, not all is bad in the world, or with the net. There are SOME agencies that can and will listen to the people they impact. For that Patreon has my respect.

It had been my plan to blog about Patreon back when the shit was first hitting the fan, back when I, like all the other small-money contributors were going to find our monthly totals jacked. But I was busy and didn't post. Now I'm happy to say that the problem was self-resolving, well, with the vocal contribution of all the other internet users out there who didn't hold THEIR opinions back.

Go team. Now we have bigger fish to fry...

Flynn-Flam

Mmmm yes. This WILL prove to be an interesting 2018.

On Friday it was Michael Flynn's turn "in the barrel", to borrow a line from Trump confidant Roger Stone. The former national security adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about December 2016 conversations he had with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak and pledged to "fully co-operate" with Mr Mueller's ongoing investigations.

Mr Flynn has admitted he misled the FBI about his discussions regarding new sanctions imposed on Russia by the Obama administration following evidence of alleged meddling in the 2016 election. (BBC)

And so it begins very seriously. Flynn has already testified that he was instructed, not willfully going out on his own, to contact Russia before Dickhead took office. And with those instructions come a fascinating host of possibilities. There's a good chance that at least one tRump will find themselves on the dock for lying. We just have to hope the biggest bullshitter will get caught up in the net and go down with his brand.

Now that's a wish for 2018.

Someone mentioned to me that there was a bit of tension during their Thanksgiving because of the NFL. The "macho" types didn't want to watch because their delicate sensibilities might be offended during the National Anthem. The person mentioning this to me was lamenting how dreadful it was that things like sports had become politicized and uncomfortable.

I reminded them that sometimes it's necessary to be uncomfortable because it reminds people that change is needed. Like drawing attention to segregation. Like drawing attention to women's suffrage. Without mass and public discomfort the US would STILL be run exclusively by greedy, rich, self-centered white men.

I'm not saying we don't have a long way to go, but it's better than it was. We just need to remind those who falter, that we can't give up. The future is at stake.

So to anyone who complains about how uncomfortable the tension makes them in watching the national anthem at a football game, just remember, this nation was founded on protest, from the first colonies until today. Discomfort is good, it builds character and forces change, even if that change is just turning off the TV.

Credit: My friend came up with the title accidentally.

Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Officials at a Washington state Navy base confirmed one of their aircraft was behind a contrail drawing of male genitalia spotted over a residential area.

Residents in Omak, where the image was clearly visible in the sky, snapped photos on Thursday when a Naval aircraft drew a penis and testicles in the sky using its contrails.

Reactions, of course, were predictable if mixed. Prudes screamed and yelled about something their precious darlings could see every day if they looked in their pants. Most other people just chuckled and moved on.

As my friend pointed out, many pilots just turn on their map-based recorder and then post their dick-flightpath-pics to their friends.

It's just a dick people what's the big deal? By now you'd hardly think they'd even cause a stir. I mean hell, we have a HUGE one as president.

  1. Yes.
  2. Where do I get one?

The pick-up truck sticker prompted a Facebook post by a local sheriff who asked to speak with the vehicle owner. In his post, the sheriff threatened to prosecute the owner for disorderly conduct unless she changes the sign. But free speech advocates argue the anti-Trump driver, 46-year-old Karen Fonseca, within her rights.(BBC)

Karen, I salute you. Also, where DO I get one?

Hooray for Australia! Hooray for love! Hooray for sanity!

Australians have overwhelmingly voted in favour of legalising same-sex marriage in a historic poll.

The non-binding postal vote showed 61.6% of people favour allowing same-sex couples to wed, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.

Jubilant supporters have been celebrating in public spaces, waving rainbow flags and singing and dancing.

A bill to change the law was introduced into the Senate late on Wednesday. It will now be debated for amendments.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his government would aim to pass legislation in parliament by Christmas. (BBC)

Well done Australia! Well done!

Holy crap, I never expected this.

Reversing an earlier decision, the University of Notre Dame will continue providing students and employees with access to birth control free of charge.

The Catholic institution was one of the first major employers to take advantage of the Trump administration's weakening of Obamacare's contraceptive mandate.

Notre Dame, which had long battled the Obama administration over the provision, said in late October that it would end coverage for employees after Dec. 31 and for students after Aug. 14. The university said it objects to the mandate based on its religious beliefs.

Students and employees quickly protested the decision, holding a demonstration and creating an online petition. (CNN)

I'm both astonished and pleased. That a catholic university could find it in themselves to do right by women? I guess Notre Dame really is an institution of higher learning, in all respects of the term.

Props to you Notre Dame. And thank you for choosing sanity and equality over rhetoric.

America wished for change. Well here it comes. Just remember the old adage: be careful of what you wish for.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A transgender candidate defeated an incumbent Virginia lawmaker who sponsored a bill that would have restricted which bathrooms she could use.

Democrat Danica Roem, a former journalist, is set to make history as the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature in the United States. She unseated Republican Del. Bob Marshall, one of the state's longest serving and most socially conservative lawmakers. The race was one of the year's most high profile, drawing international attention and big money to the northern Virginia House of Delegates district outside the nation's capital.

Bob wasn't a nice guy. During the campaign he and his team repeatedly called Danica by the wrong gender, as a means of marginalizing, mocking and disrespect. Bob also claimed the title of "homophobe in chief" and backed it up by trying to legislate marriage and who can use a bathroom.

Bob was a waste of time and the voters told him so. They'd had enough of his stupid shit. But Bob is small fry. There's a worse, more hateful, more divisive target which, based on history, won't take any lessons from the voters putting a boot in Bob's ass. Nor will any of the tRumpanzees who believe that the majority of america is with them. But they're not alone, everyone has something to learn from this. For those who feel despondent that a delusional fuckwad is president, for those who feel afraid of their fellow citizens, for women who learned that their "rights" can be suppressed, for immigrants who expect to be hated because of where they were born, there's a message here.

The message is: fight back.

Dickhead likes to quote other Dick-taters who say shit like "hit me and I'll hit back harder", well, we've been hit and we're still getting hit, but we'll hit back smarter.

I guess it's true, what doesn't kill you will make you stronger. Maybe not more organized, maybe not permanantly, and there will always be selfish stupidity to stamp out, but Dickhead's elections have made the message clear: Don't wait for change, make it happen.

Congratulations Ms. Roem. You won. And hate lost.

Oh my dear mysterious Twitter employees, thank you for our eleven minutes of respite.

Nov. 3 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump's chief method of public communication was sunk late Thursday -- by a Twitter employee on their final day, the social media giant said.

"[A] customer support employee ... did this on the employee's last day" Twitter said.

Trump's account -- @realDonaldTrump -- was offline for 11 minutes, Twitter said.

Eleven whole minutes of peace.
A joy such that we have not known in sometime.
The constant, agonizing howl of a mindless fool dribbling the inane compositions.
Such offal, unworthy of a million monkeys on their cell phones.
Harkens back to a time with sanity in hand, without an ocher skin tone, provided reassurance that brains, not barking, set our collective direction.

11 minutes of a national holiday. All thanks to a lasting day.

Not that the article says it, but I sense it on the wind...

The Disney Channel is introducing a gay storyline for the first time in its show Andi Mack.

The channel is to set to make history when its season two premiere airs on Friday in the US.

It will see best friends Andi (Peyton Elizabeth Lee) and Cyrus (Joshua Rush) both admit they are attracted to the same boy.

A Disney spokesperson says the show "sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity".

You know, YOU KNOW that the christian right (which they're not) is going to go fucking ape shit, boycott-o-rama on Disney. Because Disney is the one "fun" and "safe" thing that religious-oids feel ok letting their kids watch. Of course things have been going south a bit, what with non-white princesses and hero's prancing about. But it was ok because music! and fantasy! and pseudo-religious imagery!

This, of course, runs the whole thing right off the chain. And things will never be the same again. Now little christian-janey and christian-billy will have to go without the Disney channel because... dun.dun.dun.... GAYS. And we all know that gays are the harbinger of the apocalypse, not, say, some fucking asshole with an orange toupee and negative-morals. Nah, not that.

Anyway, here's to Disney, showing that better-late-than-never still counts!

Oh The Humanity

Someone was watching a re-run of WKRP in Cincinnati...

YELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- The Federal Aviation Administration says it will check to see whether any laws or regulations were broken when a low-flying pilot dropped live turkeys onto an Arkansas festival over the weekend.

Of course on the WKRP it ended with "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

Both reality and sitcom reality ended about the same...

Several birds were dropped Saturday and then chased by festival-goers.

Well maybe the turkeys in this case aren't hitting the ground like "sacks of wet cement" but it definitely didn't go as well as planned. Most Turkey's are pretty big and can get pretty pissed (if they're not dropped from 2000 feet in the air.)
