The Political Semantics of Designating Evil Properly

So, I was cleaning out my dashboard's cluttered "Draft" folder when I happened upon this article that, apparently, I, with my lingering chemo-clouded brain, forgot to post after penning it so long ago. Because I'm lazy and don't feel like writing something fresh, I'm posting it now. To be honest (my Spidey senses always tingles …

#BLAMEOBAMA

In case you've never watched the following video of President Obama roasting The Donald to a humiliating crisp thereby motivating him, The Donald, to not just run for president (he had already kind of done that) but to run and win regardless the cost or the damage done in order to destroy Obama's legacy you …

Kaepernick

Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They …

Like we Americans do, I tend to assume everyone the world over understands my cultural references…

Yeah, I know, I know... It drives some of you bonkers when we Americans do that... Just as I know that, thanks to the long-established American cultural propaganda machines of Hollywood, McDonalds, Levis, and Coca Cola, as well as the newcomers Apple, Facebook, Twitter, and Starbucks, it drives some of you just as bonkers, if …

English is for Everyone

Within that old stash, I also found many of my old English lessons, and old worksheets, and old handouts. They all bring back fond and funny and fortunate memories. I miss all my -- I hesitate to call them students because it seemed as if I ended up learning more from them than they did from me, so I'll simply say, I miss all my friends from that period of my life.

Amazon.uk.co just emailed me to let me know that my order of “Hands of Evil” by author Melissa Barker-Simpson has been “dispatched”

Dispatched. How cool is that? I mean, you Brits are so awesome with your English all proper-like... It's like getting a little bit of Downton Abbey delivered right to my inbox. Speaking of Downton Abbey, what's up with that show? I mean, is it some secret Brit MI6 diversion of a programme encoded with mind …

Tragic Irony

Does anyone else see the irony in the fact that the remains of Richard III -- the English king remembered mostly, courtesy Shakespeare, for his unrequited request for a means of transportation to help him escape his impending doom -- were found buried beneath a parking lot? From The Telegraph: The skeletal remains believed to …

It’s FTW! Because We Love to Win! – part 2

I just had to say something raunchy and with impact right now because I want you to know right from the get go exactly what direction this post is headed. So, if you are not in the mood for a pissed off raunchy post (Another one?), you may just want to back click yourself slowly away from the site right now before you or anyone else gets hurt.

In Defense of the American Way of Life

I think and I write about all of this BS, this Way of Life BS and that way of life BS and all the goofy-looking uniform BS and all my pretentious and pedantic intent versus impact BS while I am being completely overwhelmed and embarrassed by the ridiculous politics and even more ridiculous politicians behind the current budget battle crisis that America is currently tearing itself apart over.

Electricity

photo credit: BY-YOUR-⌘ I love electricity. And I love it even more when I can't have it. Today a brutal thunderstorm came through my area and took down many trees and power lines in its path. Consequently, my home lost its power. There is nothing like a little loss of electricity to remind us of …

National Nervous Breakdown

Instinctively, I want to say that it is the bad economy and the stress that it has been inflicting on our nation as a whole that is responsible for all these insane violent crimes; however, after a quick search of the topic, I've found that, according to the FBI, violent crime has actually been decreasing, even during the economic crisis.
