display of a link on this page is not an indication of approval ~ read it and weep This comment was made 03/28/2016: The people who think that racist is the worst insult imaginable are probably not going to vote for DT. Demoze might be making a mistake in their hysterical insistence that DT is a racist. They might impress themselves. It might also drive marginal voters into the DT camp. ~ No, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer didn’t say he has Trump dick pics ~ @TrueFactsStated Stormy’s Lawyer on MSNBC. I’ll paraphrase. “We have photos of Trump’s penis”. ~ Middle East civilian deaths have soared under Trump.

But convos still break down at “You’re a racist”/”No I’m not” b/c people don’t agree on definition. ~ dear black people ~ buffet talks ~ Swatting ~ @SethAMandel This is also what’s created the third camp–ppl like me who are interested in the flow and substance of cultural flashpoints but are instantly bored by the tribal commodification of the avatars of those ideas. @chamblee54 *tribal commodification* commodification is a fun word depending on pronunciation, you either convert someone into a commodity, or a commode in the case of @jordanbpeterson it is tough to tell the difference ~ shaun king on stephon clark ~ The Last Temptation ~ John Bolton, Lover of Drama and Wars, Is a Terrible Fit for His New Job ~ one minute art history ~ cum town ~ women on men 46 minutes Aubrey O’Day ~ What we know (and don’t know) about the police shooting of Stephon Clark ~ Names of officers in Stephon Clark shooting released by civil rights attorney ~ backache ~ Police search for men involved in shootout at Chick-fil-A ~ Mother crashed car into pole to prove to kids God is real ~ RAC says new headlights ‘blinding drivers’ ~ gerrymandering ~ The Gerrymandering Project ~ The Gerrymandering Project rss ~ Dick Clark Introduces Jefferson Airplane & the Sounds of Psychedelic San Francisco to America: Yes Parents, You Should Be Afraid (1967) ~ Connor Fionn Hale ~ Is Gerrymandering The Best Way To Make Sure Black Voters Are Represented? ~ Jordan Peterson Is Driving His Critics to Desperate Attacks ~ This Incredible Lost Footage of Judy Garland Singing “By Myself” Never Aired Because Producers Thought It Was “Too Dark”. ~ What do you do if you believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, only to learn that you are gluten intolerant? ~ Being in a silent circle, waiting for the next person to speak, is a cherished part of the heart circle. Sitting in comfortable silence, with people you have chosen to be with, is a gift. ~ KimKierkegaardashian @KimKierkegaard He was like, Didn’t you guys see the memo that said DO NOT LEAK?! ~ This e-mail message (including any attachments) is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.

Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day. To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness! ~ Would police be as quick to shoot people, if it was not reasonable to assume that anybody they encounter is probably armed? In other countries, do police mistake a cell phone for a handgun? If an officer is wrong, and that object is a handgun, it might, very quickly, be the last mistake they make. ~ trivialization of racism ~ first first .@GlennLoury defends the intelligence of @realDonaldTrump then says that he is stupid to be honest about his preferences .@AryehCW ~ @zora We need a new word, instead of “terrorist,” to describe how people can now act on ideology independently, w/o the cells and networks people usually associate with the word. “Terrorist” is deployed in racist ways & is no longer useful; useless to argue for broader application. ~ @zoraSame thing has happened with “racist”–its meaning has expanded beyond someone who uses racial slurs, marches w/ KKK, etc. That’s good we’re all more aware of everyday racism! But convos still break down at “You’re a racist”/”No I’m not” b/c people don’t agree on definition. ~ @chamblee54 the definition of racist has expanded to the point that it no longer means anything ~ @zora I would say it has meaning, in its current incarnation, although it’s a kind of abstract, self-helpy meaning that applies to everyone (which in itself is useful to point out). But now there’s no way to identify the “legacy” meaning of the term. Well, ‘cept neo-Nazi. ~ @zora Which reminds me, “white supremacy” has also expanded massively. Most people think KKK in white hoods. Current students and activists mean a whole system. Which is legitimate and true. But, again, conversations break down rapidly over terminology. ~ @chamblee54 i have always thought that liberal conservative racist terrorist were weasel words that should be used with much more caution, if at all… white supremacy might be a good choice for that list, I am sure there are others I prefer racial values to racism it is not either/or ~ sunday, i got in from dinner, and decided to go to java monkey. I tried to print the poem, and the printer gave me an error message. I had to restart the computer to get it to work, while the clock was ticking, and i was later and later on the performing list. the poem was a combination of 15 words that time magazine wants deleted from the language, and a collection of words that somebody thinks have a funny sound. I finally got on at 10:45, just before the 11 pm curfew. Here it is:
maybe i never just went very honestly ~ swashbuckling rutabaga mannequins
i hope that i should but i can’t literally ~ skedaddle spelunker shenanigans
i’ll try but i’ve got a problem absolutely ~ brouhaha pumpernickel appetite
irregardless i have to stuff things really ~ quintessential humbuggery morphodite
strumpet ragamuffin charlie mingus ~ discombobulated cunnilingus
umpteen bunghole kaleidoscope fantasy ~ nincompoop fooey latrine manatee
cuckhold phalanx tomfoolery bongo ~ nincompoop kumquat lollygag mambo ~ selah
