Another Internet Squabble

Posted in Library of Congress, Race, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on September 22, 2018

Emory Law Professor’s Use of the “n-word” Shows Something Deeper was posted on GeorgiaPol. It was prompted by an incident, Emory … professor uses “n-word”. The post was the sort of post racial polemic that emerges daily. The supply of this rhetoric far exceeds the demand.

GeorgiaPol has a facebook page. They post a note on facebook when a post is published on the blog. The post about the professor was announced on facebook. The facebook announcement was illustrated by a historic picture. There was a sign, including the magic word, in front of a building.

One of the quirks of the n-word debate is who gets to use it. The *rule* is that black people can say it, and white people cannot. No one knows what authority made this rule, which is vigorously enforced at all times. In this case, the author of the piece, @LaDawnLBJJones, is an African American. She has the *right* to use the magic word. The problem is, the facebook post was on the page belonging to GeorgiaPol. Does a non-poc website have the *right* to use this forbidden phrase? Especially when promoting a post which denounces the use of this word? The n-word tribunal should issue a ruling on this colorful conundrum.

There was this exchange on GeorgiaPol. chamblee54 ““In 2018 America, if you have ever yelled the word in anger at the guy who cut you off, or thought it while watching television about the black person accused of a heinous crime, or even sat tacitly by while a white counterpart casually used the word … then I feel compelled to make this clear to you … there is something deeper about yourself you must address” This applies to GaPol. They posted a picture with the magic word on facebook. If it is wrong for a professor to use this word in class, it is wrong for GaPol to post a picture of it on facebook. Everything that is happening to the Emory Professor should now happen to GaPol.” LaDawn LBJ Jones @chamblee54 “there are people who contribute to GeorgiaPol who cannot say THAT word. But I assure you the person who wrote this absolutely can. And if you want to discuss the difference between you, them, and me then you are avoiding the self reflection this piece is about.” chamblee54 “Did you post that picture on facebook? I really don’t care if you use the magic word. However, when a non-poc website advertises a post, denouncing the magic word, by posting a picture of a sign that contains this word… maybe that is not a problem to you, but it is at the very least ironic. As far as “the self reflection this piece is about”… who says I don’t? Race talk gets shoved in your face every day. One more post about who can, or cannot, say the magic word is not going to make any difference.”

The discussion also happened on twitter. @chamblee54 .@LaDawnLBJJones just posted 1600 fire breathing words about an Emory law professor who used the magic word in a lecture. When advertising this post on facebook, .@georgiapol_com posted a picture including the same word, whose use was hysterically denounced in the post. @LaDawnLBJJones Yes I edited the meme. Not because it wasn’t perfectly appropriate for the post but because in my head I imagined some racist who LOVES the n-word enjoying seeing it far too much. I didn’t want to give them the pleasure.

The reply was curious to PG. The picture on facebook had not changed. As it turns out, there is a picture on GeorgiaPol that was edited. The picture at GeorgiaPol is easy to miss… PG did not see it until he started this post. The spectacle of a non-poc website posting a picture of the n-word, to advertise a post denouncing the use of the n-word, is just plain weird.

In a previous discussion on race, at GeorgiaPol, PG posted a link to a chamblee54 piece about the magic word. The link was ignored, while a side comment on Colin Kaepernick got responses. People are fascinated by hot dog distractions, and not interested in listening to other people. FWIW, PG has written about the n-word before. In another post, PG substitutes racist for the magic word, while quoting a bit of public television polemic. The results were surprising.

As for “the self reflection this piece is about” … if you read facebook, you are hit over the head with talk about racism every day. If you want to maintain your sanity, you have to filter most of it out. Try to treat people … no adjective required … with kindness and respect. If you are in a position to affect institutional oppression, then you should try to alleviate that. Whatever you do, don’t get caught saying the n-word, unless you are *qualified*.

How many people really have? Maybe this is the plan… to have a few plants say they are burning their shoes, and get more publicity for Nike.

I have no illusions about the sweatshop origin of most of the items I do wear. I resent the way Nike is exploiting divisions in our society. Millions of people are offended that their ritual patriotism is being disrespected. While I might not agree with them, these people are entitled to their opinions. If Colin Kaepernick arrogantly ignores these people, then that speaks poorly of him. If the supporters of Mr. Kaepernick choose to insult these people, then that speaks poorly of them. When Nike exploits these divisions to gain market share, then that speaks poorly of them. Do these opinions make me a shitty human being? ~ cissexist is not a good word for spoken word performances the spell check suggestion for cisssexist is coexist ~ I just received a robo call from 2020 insight. It said it would take five minutes, but lasted nine minutes. It apparently was in support of Scott Holcombe. I have always supported Scott, but will have to re think my support after this call. This call said that Ellen Diehl, his opponent, has a life sized cardboard cutout of Donald Trump in her home. Whether this is, or is not true, has no impact on her ability to represent the 81st district in the GA House of Representatives. ~ How many people have really burned their Nikes? Was this staged, to get more publicity for the ad campaign? Something is really fishy here. ~ 300 309 are you registered to vote ed has life size blow up of donald trump in her house 389 6869 20 20 insight ~ pictures for this pointless waste of bandwidth are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Mr. Stevenson replied, thank you, but I need a majority to win A winning candidate needs the support of as many people as possible. You cannot tell people to go elsewhere bc you don’t like them @jessicadroeger OMFG – I believe you just told a WOC that we should allow racists to dictate the Dem Party platform. You need to take ALL the seats and shut your mouth. @chamblee54 No that is not what I said. I just said that Democrats should not be so picky about who they allow to vote for their candidates @jessicadroeger One more time – no one is preventing anyone from voting for Democrats (other than the GOP but that’s a different discussion). We’re saying no one is going to change the platform of the party or do anything to appease racists in order to get their votes. Get it? @chamblee54 You need to have a firm definition of what a racist is for this to work. How hard a line are you going to have? Ask 10 people what a racist is and you get 11 definitions. What is appeasing racists to one person is common sense alliance building to another @jessicadroeger Appeasing racists is not something I will ever do and for sure not in the name of “alliance building.” Here’s the on,y definition you need. @chamblee54 By that definition most of African America is racist @jessicadroeger Racism requires a combination of belief in the superiority of your own race AND the power to create policy/laws to benefit your own race. There is no such thing as reverse racism. Maybe the paper bag in your profile picture is meant to hide the white sheet over your face? @chamblee54 iow the first definition is not sufficient, and must be amended why do you assume I am white? You are blocked from following @Ange_Amene and viewing @Ange_Amene’s Tweets. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Rachel Maddow Strikes Again

Posted in Library of Congress, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on July 17, 2018

As you may have heard, President Trump had a press conference yesterday. He said some things that have people upset. This has been going on for a while, and will continue. In a predictable development, Rachel Maddow took to the airwaves with a barrage of Russia-did-it details. If you listen to the video, you can hear it all. The story of post-Soviet dirty deeds is well documented, with some amusing court cases on the horizon.

Ms. Madcow Maddow says that she was talking about the collusion story for some time. Since PG does not watch cable TV, he does not know whether this is true, or not. What PG does remember is what he heard on facebook, twitter, and word of mouth. The 2016 word of the day was racist. Donald J. Trump is a racist. If you vote for Mr. Trump, then you are a racist. It is as if someone thought that the best way to elect Hillary Clinton was to call Mr. Trump a racist. This was to be said as often, and as loudly, as possible. The Democratic Brain Trust assumed that everyone was just as horrified by racism as they were. This DBT thought that people would be terrified of people thinking they were racist, and would vote for Hillary, to prove that they were not racist. Unfortunately for the DBT, and the USA, this strategy did not work. Mr. Trump got more electoral votes than Mrs. Clinton.

One obnoxious canard was the notion that the KKK endorsed Donald J.Trump. A tiny Arkansas newspaper, connected to a klan community, printed an article favorable to Mr. Trump. The Washington Post said KKK’s official newspaper supports Donald Trump for president. Ms. Maddow repeated this story. It is not known whether WAPO or MSNBC ever said, in so many words, that the KKK endorsed Mr. Trump. However, when the story got out into the public, that is the way it was reported. People said, often and loudly, that the KKK endorsed Mr. Trump. This was supposed to help Mrs. Clinton get elected. It did not work.

Even if the KKK did endorse Mr. Trump, why should the talking heads mention it? The KKK is an obsolete clown show. While the three digital stooges of anonymous/facebook/twitter are focused on bedsheets, more dangerous white (and other color) hate groups are operating in darkness. With people fascinated with who is under the bedsheets, people that can do damage are buying ammunition, and buying elections.

PG got into a related twitterspat yesterday. Since other tweeter has blocked PG, their name will not be mentioned. They will be known as @045. Their reaction is another example of how your words can be twisted. If you want to skip ahead, and look at the pictures, you will not miss anything. The pictures today are from The Library of Congress.

@chamblee54 I have done research on this, and the key was the people voting for Johnson and Stein. HRC spent 3% in Michigan that she spent in Ohio. HRC lost michigan by >1%, lost ohio by 8%. Maybe the more of HRC voters saw, the less they liked her.
@045 Or maybe Russia tampered with the vote totals or Russian assets Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders siphoned off votes from the left, which they were paid to do?
@chamblee54 This is why you need to avoid insulting voters that you need. An election is not a teaching moment. It is about electing a flawed person instead of a much more flawed person. Call out racism AFTER you elect your candidate.
@045 So you’re saying Hillary/Democratic Party need racist voters to win?
@chamblee54 yes This is politics. You need the support of people you think are horrible. Could the democrats win without prejudiced black people?
@045 So you believe black people are prejudiced?
@chamblee54 duh There is a semantic game here. People say black people can’t be racist, but can be prejudiced. tomayto tomahto Until we pay the same attention to black prejudice that we pay to white racism, we will never get anywhere.

@045 We ain’t got no more to say. You and Bernie want politics centered on white people. Hillary hurt your fee fees You believe black people not voting for Bernie means they are racist. You brought us Trump. Live it, love it and you’re BLOCKED!

Cliches and Commonplaces ~ Number of people shot in Chicago this year surpasses 1,400 ~ goat yoga ~ food from china ~ The Break with Michelle Wolf | Salute to Abortions | ~ Jiz ~ alan watts lectures ~ Why I Stopped Idolizing Sam Harris It sounds like your previous admiration of Mr. Harris was too much. When you saw some flaws in his character, you over corrected. But, that is just one take. I am not familiar with Mr. Harris, and take an amused view of the intellectual dark web. Mostly, I think for myself. Thank you for your contribution. I think I saw one of your videos a while back. Did you ever shoot videos with a Crimson Tide poster in the background? It has been a while since I saw this, but I seem to remember the video was about some type of exploitation of black people/culture, and the add for an NCAA football factory was ironic. I am @chamblee54 on twitter, and fire my own shots from time to time. ~ How Jordan Peterson Misrepresented Bill C-16, Pronoun Use, & Free-Speech To Get Famous. ~ 34-year-old father in critical condition after shooting outside country club ~ Deputy airlifted to hospital after attack by suicidal woman, sheriff says ~ Why do people find Jordan Peterson so convincing? Because the left doesn’t have its own house in order ~ Warrant sheds light on DUI case of Cobb teen who fell from SUV ~ Robber wearing clown mask shoots Waffle House customer in neck, police say ~ 11 Surprising Facts About How Movie Box Office Works ~ voices matter bs ~ Here is your rule:” However, ad hominem (or personal) attacks will not be tolerated, nor will bigotry, racism, misogyny, homophobia or xenophobia.” Here is today’s comment: ” I have said before that these white people … ” Is it ok if a POC does it? That comment is racist, and a violation of your rules. Nate Eaton Please show me an example of when a person of color has made a “false alarm” call to police about white people just living, just being there, just existing. Maybe it has happened, but I have not yet seen it. As for your charge that my comment was racist, I call BS. I am white, but I don’t see “calling it as it is” in cases such as these racist in the least. You seem to be intent on turning logic on its head. Luther Mckinnon Why did you say they were white? We can see that from the pictures? Nate Eaton Since you apparently refuse to show me the requested example, please just go away. You’re proving nothing and adding nothing of substance to the debate. Luther Mckinnon I don’t remember adding myself to your group. This is not the first time you have annoyed me with divisive, logically challenged nonsense. I will probably remove myself eventually, unless you remove me first. This group seems to suffer from a lack of critical thinking. Nate Eaton I don’t remember seeing your name before. I did not add you to this group. If you don’t like this group or don’t find it worthwhile, then go ahead and leave. Your choice. Or mine. I don’t like to cut off debate, but you have not made any reasonable points. Your words reek of white paranoia, which I don’t find reasonable. ~ Just take it a bit easy with the rhetoric. There are plenty of people saying “racism is bad” at top volume. This does not help. ~ Sorry, this content isn’t available right now The link you followed may have expired, or the page may only be visible to an audience you’re not in. ~ added five hours later… Dave Ferreira Sorry to pile on, but Mr. McKinnon makes a solid point. As I’ve pointed out before, these group rules are tainted with socially acceptable prejudice. Why is misogyny expressly forbidden, but not misandry? I’m raising the point again because there was no real resolution — I let it go. Dave Ferreira Nate Eaton when you introduce race as an explanatory factor of a behavior, you’re almost guaranteed to be wrong. Race doesn’t determine behavior. Many other factors influence behavior, race is not one of them. It’s lazy-minded at best to fall back on race to explain a behavior. Dave Ferreira (It’s literally racist, but I’m being nice because I’m pretty sure you’re not a racist.) ~ Racists Don’t Like Their Racism Video Taped. Boo Hoo. “yesterdays Emmit Till is today’s Stephon Clark” ~ A Better Way to Look at Most Every Political Issue ~ Old Lesbians Try New Lesbian Slang ~ van gogh collection ~ I don’t blame the Mexican men who robbed my white neighbor ~ Cultural Marxism is Killing Music ~ 64-year-old shot by man he picked up at gas station to help with yardwork, police say ~ ryan j science class ~ Nevada execution may be blocked after pharmaceutical company lawsuit protests use of its drug ~ The ACLU of Nevada filed suit today to obtain vital public records regarding the upcoming execution of Scott Dozier. ~ The Volunteer ~ Scott Dozier Isn’t Afraid Of Being Executed With Fentanyl: “Just Bang Me Up, Man” ~ Nevada Plans to Use Fentanyl in Upcoming Execution ~ nevada press release ~ Glossip v. Gross ~ Nevada Says Fentanyl Was Easy to Obtain, But Execution Protocol Draws Criticism from Doctors, Legal Experts ~ mrs waters acting the fool ~ The Loaded Language Shaping the Trans Conversation ~ When the speech condemns a free press…(Spurious Quotation) ~ One candidate for Georgia governor gets most money from out of state ~ Wild Goose to Feature Jen Hatmaker, a “Christian Mystic,” and other “Spiritually Non-Traditional” Speakers ~ wild goose ~ How to derail productive Black discourse: mention white women ~ Clueless ~ RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 Contestant Aja Attacks the Gay “Cis” Community on TWITTER ~ @ajaqueen ~ Jill Stein’s Recount Cash Pays for Her Russia Legal Defense ~ Duke scholar, who revealed a lie in the Emmett Till case, calls new investigation ‘a political show’ ~ Police make arrest in shooting, robbery outside Brookhaven country club ~ What’s In A Name? | Clairemont vs. Clairmont ~ In about 20 years, half the population will live in eight states ~ Surveillance video shows Applebee’s customers allegedly stab, attack waitress ~ A Letter Of Hope From Henry Rollins ~ Teens testify shooter Dunn said “Are you talking to me?” Thompson told the court that Dunn said: “Turn your music down I can’t hear myself think.” Thompson says he obliged, but that Jordan Davis objected, saying, according to Thompson, “F**k that, n****r, turn it back up.” Thompson turned the music back up, and that’s when Davis and Dunn began “having a conversation back and forth.” ~ Juror: Some On Panel Thought The Killing Of Unarmed Teen Jordan Davis Was ‘Justified’ ABC: What were his options? VALERIE: Roll the window up, ignore the taunting, put your car in reverse, back up to the front of the store, move a parking spot over. That’s my feeling. ~ Police say they made an ‘error’ in arresting Stormy Daniels ~ All serious criminal cases deserve podcast-style scrutiny ~ James Baldwin, The Art of Fiction No. 78 ~ patti boyd ~ i was the mob ~ Biblical inerrancy isn’t found anywhere in the Bible and was invented by American fundamentalists to discredit other Bible scholars. ~ Orthodoxy, as adherence to the early creeds of the church, has literally nothing to do with Biblical inerrancy. ~ Chicago police release body cam video of South Shore police shooting ~ bhtv comment ~ is steve bannon an idiot .@Steven_K_Bannon is an idiot among other things ~ trump opponents are racist rant by .@GlennLoury about #racist nature of Trump opponents is pure gold disappointed that you are not discussing .@JohnHMcWhorter and @jordanbpeterson there is so much ~ @GlennLoury @JohnHMcWhorter discussion on intelligence/ effectiveness of DJT misses an important point. DJT allegedly has been abortion baby daddy. Why is DJT taking pro life stance for public consumption, except that he thinks it will benefit him. DJT is the immoral heir to LBJ ~ @chamblee54 8. The Democratic/Republican duopoly driving America to the verge of race war with their divide and conquer tactics ~ does this skin make me look fat? ~ @wowprettylady i avoid family gatherings because they always ask why im single and i have to explain a million times that im taller than 90% of the male population and whenever i meet a shorter man i instinctively start using his head as a portable coffee table ~ i just had a weird experience… i was in a waiting room, and looked through a copy of people magazine. There was an article about Anthony Bourdain, which was obviously published before his departure. The last line of the story: I expect to die in the saddle. ~ Does the technical expertise of the Watson Institute include putting the light on Dr. Loury, so we can clearly see his face? Or is the sun lit trees in the background more important? ~ @spider_ramone The N-word is trending. In 2018. Thanks @realDonaldTrump, you malignant donkey taint. ~ @ggreenwald That Washington lacks bipartisanship is a transparent myth, sustained only by ignoring as non-issues the vast, highly ideological and profoundly consequential policies which both parties support with equal vigor ~ When you use a slur, against another human being, you hurt yourself more than you hurt the person you think you are insulting. ~ I just got a phone call from the Lucy McBath campaign. I told the gentleman that I don’t vote for candidates who call me on the phone. I did not mention that I have already received a call from the Kevin Abel campaign. ~ “it’s about leading all the other lost soles out there.” That is, I think, a typo. You probably meant to say soul, instead of sole. This may be a case where the typo is more true than the intended word. Man is presumed to have a soul, even if this soul cannot be measured or verified. We say that we feel it, and we probably do. However, the soul cannot be scientifically demonstrated. However, the bottom of your feet, or your show, is a sole. If you look at the bottom of your shoe, you will see a sole. Is a person who is walking, and not sure of where they are going, is that two lost soles? Maybe these are the lost soles we should be concerned with. ~ selah

This may be a first for jesus worshipers. @JemarTisby @williamrblack ~ @AryehCW Has anyone written a thinkpiece on why Italians are the only ethnicity it’s still okay to make fun of? @chamblee54 Southern White People Idk of that is an ethnicity, or a lack of one, but it is open game, especially if you throw in a kkk joke, in which case it is absolutely virtuous to insult us ~ One problem with the internet is distractions. If you see something you want to share, you will need to go share it. While you are there, inevitably you will look at facebook, thus putting your peace of mind at risk. Like when two facebook friends shared a vile screed. What is the proper response to this? Say something, and get into a quagmire argument. Or just ignore it, and lose respect for the two men who liked this. I don’t want to be someone who hates others because of their opinions. The article says you should speak up, when it suits them. The good news is, the next poem I found in the archive addresses this issue.
it is is not about justice – it is having an emotional experience
that validates your privilege – the person judging you
is just as messed up as you are – it is is not about salvation
it is having an emotional experience – that validates your privilege

When You Insult People

Posted in Library of Congress, Weekly Notes by chamblee54 on June 18, 2018

David Bowie Memorialized in Traditional Japanese Woodblock Prints ~ twitter poem source ~ do it again ~ twitter chat @TylerMahanCoe If you talk shit on a band and someone tells you they met that band and the band was nice, tell that person that Ted Bundy was nice. @occultauralist Your band can suck and you can still be a good human being. Bundy was great till he got you in the car.‏ @chamblee54 Debbie Harry, of Blondie, turned down a ride by Ted Bundy @TheoRobertBundy Or I turned her down. Blondes are so passé. ~ @marcushjohnson I hate the “Liberal pundits criticizing Trump plays into his hands” narrative. Nobody said conservative criticism of Obama played to his hands. Their anger was treated as righteous not frivolous. Why? @chamblee54 It is not right or wrong, or equal treatment, but political strategy. Criticism of an incumbent usually plays into their hands. The more deranged the criticism, the better. I suspect somebody said that about Mr. Obama’s critics. And they would have been correct. ~ hollywood ~ model T ~ June Dobbs Butts Poetry Reading, July 17, 2016 ~ baldwin ~ Woman trying to burn flag arrested at Philly Pride, police say ~ “other two-bit rouge regimes” Typos can be so much fun. Rouge regime might be a good way to describe President Tiny Hands. In other news, up-and-coming celebrity Jordan Peterson is in town. If you want to hear his message, and don’t want to pay $60 and go downtown, here is the show he did three days ago. ~ Georgia farms at stake in water wars ~ @Kate_Biscuit SEARCH GODDAMN GOOGLE SCHOLAR FOR THE FACTS YOU IGNORANT FUCKKNUCKLE, I DIDN’T SPEND SIX YEARS DOING A FUCKING PHD TO TEACH YOU HOW TO DO DUE FUCKING DILIGENCE WHEN YOU INSULT PEOPLE. ~ dock ellis ~ more dock ellis ~ lost john coltrane record ~ tabbi duncan ~ FIFA World Cup ~ good cop good cop ~ I don’t owe white people trigger warnings. this page comes with a popup asking for money ~ Thiccness is Getting Co-Opted By The Masc, Muscular Gays ~ WE’RE GETTING TO JON STEWART ~ cartoonist fired. ~ This Guy Served His Friends Tacos Made from His Own Amputated Leg Shiny’s is the rare case where cannibalism was not only legal but ethical. ~ @chamblee54 @AryehCW After a few sjw facebook debates, CA is a slightly sensitive issue, but I will recover from this chat comments by @conniewang about how stupid CA frequently is were appreciated As a southern white male, I am a veteran of many brainless comments about *my people* ~ Chavius Hollis ~ Joseph Villanueva ~ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette fires editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers ~ CENSORED: Ten Anti-Trump Cartoons The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Refuses To Publish Rise and Shine. The World is Doomed.

Where does this tell people ” “obey the laws of the government.”? ~ There is a rumor that he has the Nike logo tattooed onto his penis. ~ Why I’m Not a Shaman, and Neither Are You ~ A Brief History of People Using Romans 13 to Justify White Supremacy ~ email chatter ~ Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids ~ watcher of weasels ~ JBP lawsuit threat Sign up to get your daily read on how the country is changing under Donald Trump. ~ incel is short for involuntary celebate ~ @THEWRENCHLEFT AS PER THREAT TO SUE FOR LIBEL, I HEREBY APOLOGIZE TO JORDAN PETERSON FOR REFERRING TO HIM AS AN INVOLUNTARY CELIBATE (INCEL), A MISOGYNIST, A COMMITTED WHITE NATIONALIST, AND SOMEONE WHO HAS DESCENDED INTO RANK BIGOTRY. ~ Jordan Peterson VS Christopher Hitchens – Were The Nazis Atheists? ~ Pro-Flag-Burning Prof Calls Child-Having Jordan Peterson A ‘White Nationalist’ ‘Incel’ ~ festive text ~ one difference between you and me Glenn ~ reject me as being representatively black ~ PG looks in his archive, and find a post for today. While looking for pictures, PG stumbled onto this video by alleged comedian Dylan Marron. They say “surface gestures are totally cool but they do nothing to dismantle systemic patriarchy” Could they be talking about Colin Kaepernick when they says this? When PG went to share that gem on twitter, he found this: @SheriffClarke “.@realDonaldTrump should invite JUSTIFY to the White House lawn for winning the Triple Crown. Justify is a WINNER like Trump who could care less about leftist identity politics. #MAGA” @ghostdancer2017 “Justify might poop on the lawn, but he would still be better behaved than some NFL players.” @JessicaHuseman “He knows Justify is the horse right” 444 words later, there is a post on chamblee54. It was impossible to focus on Mr. Franzen and Mr. Rose while posting this feature, which may not be a bad thing. ~ The FT incident this meme refers to was in New York . ~ If it is a witch hunt, why haven’t they found Kellyanne Conway? ~ @thibbye I clerked in an a C-store for a while before running it. I swore that it it ever caught fire I would lock the doors and make shadow puppets in front of the flames to the screams of the dying. The general public is a disgusting mass that you can only grow to hate. ~ There used to be a radio station, WPLO-FM, which was the most progressive station in town. When I was 14, I got my first radio that would pick up FM. One of the songs they liked to play was “Someday Soon,” by Miss Collins. I was shocked that she would say “damned old rodeo.” ~ @nihilist_arbys Hi. Sorry we’re late joining all the other cool, irreverent brands piling on ihop in the very interesting pancake/burger melee but it turns out the whole thing is incredibly stupid. Eat Arby’s. ~ If Kanye collaborated with Enya, they could call it EnyaKanye Now that ABBA is no more, we need a palindromic act ~ I just got a call from XXX XXXXX with the “Police Action Fund” He asked how I was. I said “Poor” He said to have a good day, and hung up. ~ Sign up for our Press Alerts which will keep you updated by email. Catholic League Press Alerts ~ Pessimist anagrams as piss is met Realist anagrams as ear list ~ The estate of former President Lyndon B. Johnson filed a suit directed at the use of LBJ to describe Mr. James ~ This site has been disabled for violations of our Terms of Service. If you feel this disabling was in error, please fill out our appeal form. ~ a man is drowning 50 yards offshore a democrat throws 100 yards of rope, and then walks away with fastening it to anything a republican throws 25 yards of rope, and says the swim will help build character ~ Rude assholes finish last. Nice guys finish next to last. ~ Is the way Israel treats the Palestinians racism? ~ Mr. Chamberlain actually said “peace for our time,” not “peace in our time.” The statement, by Mr. Chamberlain, includes the phrase “peace with honour.” This is how Richard Nixon described the efforts to get the United States out of Vietnam. The Paris accords, the treaty that resulted from those negotiations, was a severely flawed agreement. ~ @tcboyle Because I am a pessimist. (Realist?) @chamblee54 Pessimist anagrams as piss is met Realist anagrams as ear list @tcboyle I do like the tone of this. How about an anagram for spread the love? @chamblee54 according to anagram generator spread the love anagrams as: pothead revels, phase revolted, hovel pederast, head overslept, develop earths, develop Hearst, develop haters, deprave hotels ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
