    • Preparing For The Coronavirus
      I haven’t written about this because others have been dealing with it well and pandemics aren’t something I know a great deal about. It does look, now, like the Coronavirus stands a good chance of turning into a pandemic, and I think we should discuss preparation a bit. Our world produces most goods in a […]

Eat Me!

The heat is on. The DNC and Howard Dean especially is playing the villain, putting Hillary on the hot seat, pressuring her to give up her delegates. For what purpose? Is it because:

1.) There is a slim, infinitesimally small possibility that the pledged delegates and superdelegates will snap out of their psychogenic fugue sometime in August and realize they are not Republicans? “Oh, Shit! We almost nominated the wrong guy. He’s like sooooo not ready. What did you slip me?  Rohypnol?  F%^&!  I can’t believe you talked me into this guy.”

2.) The Clinton delegates will harsh everyone’s mellow over the platform and insist on Universal healthcare and social security protection? “Who invited those “losers” to the party? They’re all like into working class stuff. They’ve probably never even been to a Whole Foods” (Come to think of it, I’ve never been to a Whole Foods. Does Wegman’s count?)

3.) The Obamaphiles and their DNC enablers really are as rabid as we thought? “The evil one and her minions must learn to SMELL THE GLOVE! Down on your knees, you stupid old, uneducated, Sino-Peruvian lesbians. There is no hope for you. You will live in an America devoid of any place for you. Worship us and DESPAIR! And do it quickly, we don’t have a whole lot of time here.”

Ehhh, I’m going with all of the above.

But we don’t negotiate with terrorists. We’ll see what the O-borg has to offer and if it does not meet our standards (and it’s about time *someone* starts holding him to a set of standards), the party will be notified on November 4th.


BTW, I have noticed that the Obama and/or GOP trolls are lame in the dark and rude, snarky, sardonic wit category. So, I plan to bring in an expert to show them how to insult us properly. He’s French so it may take a few days of discussion, arguing, pros, cons, angst, philosophizing and a few Gallic shrugs before he condescends to treat us rudely. I look forward to it in a very Marquis de Sade kind of way.

Er sorry about the whole sidebar thingy going missing for a few hours. I’m not sure what to attribute that to except that we have been getting hit pretty hard in the past couple of days with hits from various refugees. It could be that our cache cups runneth over. The good news is that I think I fixed it! The bad news is that if you wrote some brilliant comment that should have been saved for all eternity, it may have been lost in the series of toobz. My sincerest apologies. But we should reach 1 MILLLION hits sometime very soon! (Imagine Dr Evil with pinky poised at the crook of my smile) Maybe I should open a PayPal link for a 50/50 pool. The user that comes closest to the day/time to the millionth hit takes half the prize. The other half gets forwarded to Clinton’s campaign to help her settle her debt. Lemme know in the comments if this sounds intriguing.
