Climate Change = Increases in Demagoguery, Nationalism, Authoritarianism, Violence, and Cruelty


Reading time: 9 minutes!?! OUCH! There are lots of heading, though, so you can skip around and find the juiciest most interesting parts.
Climate change news just keeps getting worse. And, until we reach some kind of happy equilibrium — that’s a population of about 500,00 human beings, BTW — with planet earth, it probably will just keep getting worse, too. I mean, as bad as it is right now, when billions of people begin dying, that will be worse. So, what happens when the worst happens? Unfortunately, even more bad stuff: violence and cruelty

Can We Prevent Mass Shootings By Preventing Suicide? | FiveThirtyEight


Reading time: 3 minutes

Red flag laws have become the new bump stock bans which became the new large-capacity magazine ban which became the new enhanced background checks which became the new assault weapons ban. So, if you’re feeling slightly dizzy and nauseous like we’ve whirled right past this one, too, already, well, I understand. But, red flag laws might have the magic of being the best of both worlds: preventing suicides and mass shootings! This article from FiveThirtyEight.com explains it all and still manages to shoot gun reform laws in the dick!

Open Carry, the Ultimate Gaslighting Technique


Reading time: 3 minutes
Is an armed society a more polite society? Hell no. Of course you should worry about seeing a white man armed in a public place. Haven’t nearly every mass shooter been an armed white man in a public place? For the open carry folks to claim that we should trust them to be the good guy with the gun is the ultimate in gaslighting.

Anatomy of a Troll


Quick dip: 2 minute read
Shallow dive: 4 minute read
Deep dive: 6 minute read
Internet trolls pop up almost as often as racists and white supremacists do nowadays. The funny thing their trolling techniques are so much alike, it’s almost like there were some degree mill popping them out, and an agency licensing them, and a continuing education requirement. But, that would be silly, right? Well, I dissect a troll after a Twitter encounter. Come see the oozing dripping guts and other viscera! It’s educational.

Fighting fascism could get you classified as a terrorist – but the Raccoons of the Resistance are here | First Dog on the Moon | Opinion | The Guardian


Every now and again a little silly cute humor is needed to pull the soul back from the dank darkness of our political abyss. Luckily, we have the First Dog on the Moon drawing Raccoons of the Resistance over at The Guardian to help us with that. Have a read of their comic about saving us all from fascism! It’ll do you good, especially if you read it while drinking a #MoscowMitchMule

The Real Reason Trump Lies So Much

The Real Reason for the Lies, Jactations, and False Offers of Trump


Reading time: 4 minutes
I scream myself to sleep with “Why don’t read my blog?” It is my burden and curse to be right all of the time and so little appreciated. Ambassador McFaul just tweeted a question about what Trump was trying to tell President Xi. I know what the message was. Trump lies constantly. Media personalities still gnash their teeth and scrape their boils and proclaim themselves shocked and dumbfounded by it all. I can explain both with one word…

Emma Lazarus, The New Colossus, Ken Cuccinelli, immigration

Don’t Let ‘Em Gaslight YOU! Know the Poem.


Reading Time: 4 minutes
Every now and then someone — usually the Ol’ Pussy Grabber — from the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s regime says the quiet part out loud. And, then there are those that make it so very clear and plain and obvious what the quiet part is by their asinine statements that they needn’t bother either saying it out loud. Of course, I’m referring to Ken Cuccinelli’s comments about the Statue of Liberty and immigration. We already knew that they were going after all immigrants except the pressed and white ones. We he made clear was that they were working hard to gaslight us about it. Don’t let them gaslight you! Know the poem.

Surely, I’m not the only one to think of Moscow mule when #MoscowMule started trending. Here’s a couple of ideas for drinks and what to do with them! Also, call #MassacreMitch and YOUR senator and tell them to pass the House gun legislation!

Causes of Mass Shootings: What’s Wrong with Blaming “Depraved Evil?”


Reading time: 5 min
OMG! Has the derp been extra deep and thick since the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings! The desperation of the Repubes to use illusory explanation and the illusion of truthiness to stop us all from thinking about the causes of mass shootings has been palpable. No one has laid it on as thick or as deep as Kellyanne Conway who has her own way illusions of derpiness. Here’s all you need to know about how necessary it is for us to understand “depraved evil” and unite against hate.
