There's This Pregnant Woman I Know

I've noticed that comments or questions about her pregnancy are always, without fail, the first thing out of the mouth of everyone she speaks you. Even two-word courtesy phrases are always something in the vein of 'excuse me mama'.

I can understand some fascination with sex and reproduction. I've heard rumors that there's such a thing, but is a woman's motherhood always and forever the most notable thing about her from the first time she becomes noticibly pregnant until the end of her days? Me I'm a shy guy, and would probably be the same way if I were a woman, and the thought of running into such intrusive annoyences and knowing that there would never be any escape from them, horrifying isn't remotely adequate.

The woman I speak of here though, she's taking it well, but I do have a strong sense that she's burning inside.

"Children are like arrows in the hand of a mighty man. Simply put, the more children you have, the more weapons you’ll have to throw at the devil. Imagine if every christian family thought this way. We would have lots of spiritual warrious out there!"

Ah yes, mass reproduction as a display of dominance, if it worked for Ghenghis Khan, than by God it can work it can work for the whitebread true American Christian congregants of 'Power of the Word' faith community.

Interesting angle on abortion as well, 'children are like arrows' this woman is openly stating that offspring are polyps that drop off of the man's dick.

If you think there's no such thing as ever repeating your core beliefs loudly enough, repeatedly enough, or obnoxiously enough, you just might be a fanatic.

Oh Redistricting

So, Bellevue, with its contiguous urban blending into Omaha, has less in common in Omaha than Gretna, from where one can reach 10th and O or 13th and Dodge in the same amount of time. Right.

Shady gerrymandering from any party is of course not remotely new. But combine this nonsense with the Jim Suttle recall attempt, followed by the whining after its failure that the outcome was determined by treating homeless people like citizens and allowing them to vote, the petulant harrumphing of many right-wingers in the suburbs around Omaha about having to pay a wheel tax to support the upkeep of its streets just because they drive on them every day and contribute to there wear... (These are true self-reliant Americans you see, and if forced to support those deadbeats in the city they can just take their talents and their business somewhere else you know. As for the fact that they aren't quite self-reliant enough to live on any of the millions of acres in Nebraska that aren't within thirty miles of a major city, never mind ya fucking commie.)

It's almost as if right-wingers, in Nebraska and elsewhere consider themselves better than everyone else. (may one dare say elitist?) And since they are better then everyone else than they should get what they want by fiat without facing the humiliating prospect of being outvoted by dirty brown people and smartass hipsters. As social change has inexorably worn away white suburban privilege, so too has all of the old patriotic pieties used to justify that privilege been gradually stripped away to the naked childish 'I WANT IT!!' it has always and only ever been.

These people really do consider themselves aristocrats. They believe with utter seriousness that this country and all of us in it outside of their social group exist to serve them. So be it. We will, end, win anyway. The Omaha district will, in the short-term, remain competitive, in both congressional and presidential races. In the long-term it will become solidly Democratic, while the perfectly safe Republican third district will fade from existence. While all of this is happening, Republican primaries for state office will be clouded with a glut of term-limited amateurs from the new-style populist unicam. Conservative dominance of the state will, through hubris and entropy if nothing else, gradually erode. The more power they grab through naked entitlement the more shall slip through their fingers.

Post 900

To mark the occasion and the zeitgeist of the moment, here's a poem from some anonymous internet person called 'God Bless US"

O Lord, our refuge and strength
When it's 'in God we trust'
The foe has struck your firstborn
With a great infamous thrust

Like history repeated
A Trojan Horse await
To massacre the blameless
A 'Nine-eleven' fate

They've dared defy an army
That does proclaim you Lord
Deliver US from their hand
Whet your glittering sword

Our Father who's in heaven
Shield US, your battle axe
Guard these in Thy replevin
Then Babylon do tax

Give US righteous victory
In Thy name, Lord of host
So that all the earth may know
'In God we trust' foremost

O Lord, our Rock and fortress
'Land of the Free' protect
Keep US strong 'til Shiloh come
Then on to Him collect

He maketh the wars to cease
Unto the end of earth
Breaketh bow, cut sunder spear
To chariots flame's birth

'Be calm, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.'

The Lord of hosts is with US
Our refuge we proclaim
Bless US in our endeavor
We ask in Jesus name

Well Isn't This Something?

I was one of many who had stopped even wondering when Bin Laden would be caught. It's not that there was any point where I gave up hope that he would be, it's just that I had come to half-consciously believe that he was either already dead of peaceful causes or would head that way someday soon, a phantom kept alive to inspire jihadists and despirit the West. Well, he was apparently still a flesh and blood man hanging out in more-or-less modern medium-sized city, and we really fucking got him. I remember Sept. 11, I woke up foggy from a slight hangover about an hour after the towers had collapsed. Take that for what you will, and since then have spent the last decade growing slightly wiser and ever more aware of and horrified at those who actively lust and strive for a twenty first century of eternal geocultural strife. This hellish vision of chauvinists in both East and West, who both wear their hatred for each other as badges of purity and need each other as couples do, was something that I had real hope the election of Obama would hope to kill. I have been both satisfied and disappointed in this. And now I feel the same hope with the death of this flesh-and-blood bogeyman. We'll see.

I was somewhat shocked to learn he was only fifty four, born in the same year as my mother. The man was Palpatine.

Did I celebrate Bin Laden's death. No, I thought the presidents response was perfectly appropriate. Somber over the fact that this had to be done, yet openly satisfied that it was done and done so well. I for my part did not scream or shout. I did drink some rum and spit on the ground that would soon hold him, which turned out to be the sea, whatever. Whether a live capture and trial would have been preferable; well it was simply never going to happen. How could this man have thrown his hands up and surrendered after sending so many deluded young mooks to gloriously die? He took what he himself knew was his only option. He was a true believer in what he preached.

And what he preached was quite simply treason. You might remember the dustup over JW Lindh, the 'American Taliban' in the days just after 9/11. People were demanding his death, his rape, his torture, fuck all of them. Me I'm a lefty who cares very little for sacred national loyalties and the betrayal of them. Bin Laden on the other hand was a real traitor, a man who declared the comforts and pleasures of modern civilization to be absolute evil, who insisted that beliefs exist to violently seek dominance over each other and that men exist to die for their beliefs. Osama bin Laden was a traitor against humanity and against life. This fraudulent revolutionary, this silver-spoon hypocrite, was a traitor against all oppressed people who have faced their stunted lives with hope and courage, seeking pools of happiness where they could and resisting to the end the urge to give into despair and murderous rage. And those Arabs in Libya and Syria who now risking their lives for the sake of living should be glad that they have been deburdened of this false prophet of death, stagnation, and the only flavor of damnable treason worthy of the name.

I'm not a big believer in victory. I'm much to cynical to think that winning is any evidence of virtue. But I do know true, moral, meaningful victory when I see it, and this is it. A victory for civilization sure, not to be grand. More importantly a victory for modernity, happiness, fun, a victory for gleeful decadence, for sex with strangers, drunken sing-alongs with strangers, for children playing chaotic games while their stuck-up parents fret that they're not learning the real value of winning. A victory of hearing about how your grandparents had to drive eight hours down a dirt road to town to see the latest pictures and, not being the slightest bit ashamed of your own comparative leisure, but fucking glad for it. A victory for life, and, in the broadest sense of the term, a victory for liberalism.

You've heard the phrase 'Sic semper tyrannis' right? You know, the state motto of Virginia, the thing that drama queen JW Booth said when he iced Lincoln. You've probably heard that it translates to English as 'death to tyrants' but that's not true. It actually translates as 'thus always to tyrants.' Not what should or must be done to them but what by course will happen to them.

So no, I do not celebrate the death of Bin Laden or any other man. But I will go so far as to say that those who believe that infantile games of dominance are magically dignified by blood shall spill their own, those who think that suffering-for-its own sake builds character shall suffer for their own characters, those who think life is lived for struggle shall fail their struggle to live. and those who preach the godliness of death shall quickly behold the face of their god.

Real Men Love Real Men, and Other Notes


Allen West, R; Florida: "We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow. "

According to Congressman West, women exist for the purpose of 'strengthening up the men who are going to fight for you.' Women exist for no other purpose except to produce ideal men, the vagina exists only as an incubator, and only some poor neutered homo could possibly want it for anything else.

Allen West is, of course, the perfect opposite of a homo, and just to emphasize this already obvious fact he pointed to the ancient Spartans as the ideal that American men should strive for, the pinnacle of manliness that must leave other men quivering with admiration is they themselves hope to be real men. Go get em tigers.

On a more serious note, I was struck by the definitive future statement, 'the men who are going to fight for you.' West takes it as a given that being metaphorically tied to the train tracks and in need of manly rescue is an essential state of being for the American woman; today, tomorrow, and forever. This eternal peril is necessary because pleasure is effeminate. Real men cannot be allowed to ever express love through things like joy or laughter, but only through violently defending the people and things they love against the latest outrage.

This leaves any prospective real man in a bind. Because not even the most chauvinistic Bubbas are insane enough to actually want their wives or daughters to be in mortal danger, yet still believe that avenging some affront to home and hearth is the only true expression of masculine love. Demagogues have always been very happy to solve this conundrum for them, offering threats in the form of minorities, foreigners, street criminals, outsiders and eccentrics. People who are socially weak; and therefore safely hated and 'defeated', yet in spite of their weakness still somehow capable of destroying everything you love through some dark magic, and somehow always still there and still threatening no matter how much manly punishment is unleashed upon them.

And since you can never be allowed to conclude that the people you love are as safe as mortality allows, (this would be willfully embracing impotence) you must then conclude that there can never possibly be any such thing as enough power or capacity for destruction. You'll start doing things like demanding the right to take a gun to the coffee shop, as if this is some ancient social norm only recently violated. You will start to insist, perhaps in a roundabout way, that institutions responsible for projecting force; military, police, etc. are incapable of error, that soldiers are never sent on an unwise mission, police never arrest the wrong man, that lack of fear towards insufficiently harsh punishment is the motive behind all crime. Everything you say will come out of your mouth in an aggressive, defensive matter. If you feel the need to tell someone how much you love peanut butter sundaes, you will do so by saying 'I don't care what you think, but if you don't think the peanut butter sundae is the most delicious thing on God's green earth to you can suck my country dick.'

You'll be a real asshole, is what I'm saying. And you'll never be very happy. But never mind, happiness would only neuter you right?

A Quick Lession in The Fox News Way

"President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity's most sacred holiday."

Read more: http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/04/25/wh-fails-release-easter-proclamation#ixzz1KaTo7yqX

This sentence is not in any way untrue. President Obama did, in fact, 'fail' to release a proclamation in honor of Easter. And if this offends you you'll be glad to know that he 'failed' to do so for the same reason that my family failed to toast Elijah at Easter dinner; because it is not and has never been customary for the president to make such a proclamation. (George W. Bush, for example, is just one of some forty or so presidents who have allowed multiple Easters to pass without official commemoration.)

Then again, if such things do offend you it's probably because living in a constant waking state of offense makes you feel like a true American Hero, in which case I'm sorry to bother you with facts.

Arise Ye Sons of Harlotry

"No one can seriously believe that the constitution's authors intended to create a right to same-sex marriage," Rep. Lamar Smith- Texas

What Smith says is indeed true. If you give the Constitution a close, honest, patriotic reading, one in which the reader always remembers that the Founding Fathers sought to ensure our freedom by creating a single, eternal philosophy of proper governance that every generation shall always be compelled to unquestionably obey, you will find that the Sacred Document has absolutely nothing to say about marriage of any kind. And of course since those human rights mentioned in our own Bill of Rights are the only ones that do or were ever meant to exist, this can only mean that our holy Founding Fathers sought not only to prevent the abomination of gay marriage from ever reaching our shores, but the abomination of marriage.

It is obvious friends that only Bastards were ever intended to be citizens of the United States, and that we will never return to the 'shining city on the hill' until children of legally married couples are striped of all voting rights and legal protections, and all non-bastard office-holders are impeached. Every judge or priest who has deprived this country of true sons and daughters by performing the blasphemous wedding ceremony must be shot for a traitor. And those swine who defile our gene pool by producing children with their 'husbands' and 'wives' deserve no better.
True patriots serve their country by having unprotected sex with strangers. In order to restore Bastard Americans to our rightful majority we must begin a program of recruiting Third-World prostitutes to our shores immediately. And while I loathe the thought of granting amnesty to illegal immigrants as well as anyone, the truth is that the Guatemalan streetwalker who brings seven illiterate children from seven different fathers is not only no criminal, but the greatest friend America can have in these dark days. Such women should not only be allowed to stay, but granted a pension large enough to live as royally as saviors of the Republic deserve.

It I realize how distressing it must be, to comprehend the fact that every great question of every age, every election for every office, has been polluted with the fraudulent voice of non-Bastards. But do not despair. There is a reason that America has managed to survive and even somewhat thrive in it's corrupted, extra-Constitutional state for so long. You see my friend, even though we Bastards have been denied the aristocratic power that is our god-given right, our innate genetic superiority has still ensured that the great halls of government, industry, finance, and faith have all been disproportionally controlled by pure, full-blooded, perfect Bastards. No one with a basic knowledge of US history cant deny this.

Do not doubt for a second friend that we shall prevail. America will be America again, and with enough holy blood and sacrifice the world shall be ruled by Bastards. God bless you, God save all the Bastards of the world, and God bless the Bastard states of America.

Found This Interesting


A few days ago, Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia, (Athens is the anchor city of his district. I'm listening to the B-52s right now.) went on a long rant about FDR being a communist. It's the sort of thing you've probably heard before, notable mainly because it was made on the floor of Congress instead at the Rotary club by a shitfaced RV dealer, and also for this very odd assertion of Broun's at some point in the middle of his rant:

"Broun was speaking Tuesday on the House floor about how the 'original intent' of the Constitution was to promote the 'general welfare of the nation, not welfare of individuals'"

Now it may seem obvious to you or me, perhaps even old-fashioned common-sensical. That 'The Nation' is nothing more than the sum of the individuals who live here. that there is no possible distinction between a mandate to promote the welfare of the Nation and the welfare of the people who live here.

But there's a rub in 'nothing more than'. There's a reason that right-wingers are enraged by the 'desecration' of the flag or other abstract symbols of America, while at the same time are often gleefully blase towards pollution of the physical American land or deprivation of flesh-and-blood American people. I've mentioned before about how the America they fancy themselves loving more than the rest of us is not a flesh and blood thing to them, but a totem. They want to believe that America exists as something beyond human scrutiny, beyond the mundane and mortal, a glorious light, that by submitting to the One True American Way they are the essence of this Light, the embodiment of courage and truth in a world of slugs and slime.

At any rate, to accept that the nation is the people who live here would mean accepting that they take pride in feeling superior love and loyalty for the very people they feel superior to. And not even wingnuts are capable of enough doublethink to ignore this contradiction.

And that brings us back to man living for the Sabbath. A belief that life does not exist for its own sake, (and that therefore improving the general quality of life should be the obvious end of society) but as a test of mettle. It's ideals in the vein of loyalty, courage, strength, endurance, discipline etc, that exist for their own sakes, not because they advance the end of improving the human condition in this way or that. People are here for the sake of honoring these ideals by struggling to measure up to them. And of course the people who hold such beliefs are always convinced that they are among the tiny handful of worthies who are good and strong enough to pass the test, and that they are entitled to punish and reign over the mass of us depraved weaklings as reward.

Why should we believe that 'AMERICA' is good? Because presuming her goodness out of hand is part of the test. Why should we be loyal to 'AMERICA', because 'AMERICA' exists as a canvas to display our loyalty upon. The answer to how many flags to put on your car is always FUCKING MORE.

"though the people support the Government, the Government should not support the people." - So said Glover Cleveland, conservative Democrat of the Gilded Age, a couple of decades after J.S. Mills assertion that morality was the greatest happiness for the greatest number was perceived as shockingly radical. So this idea is nothing new, why does it continue to stick around? Because here in the Heartland we still teach our White Real American Manly Men to take charge and show em who's boss. And we'll believe anything that gives us an excuse to dictate down to you city freaks.

Dé hAoine, Aibreán 15, 2011

RIP Leon Satterfield

"Let me admit before I go any further that I am not in the middle of the road on the question of how we ought to treat Mexicans illegally crossing the U.S. border. Here's why: My experiences with folks from Mexico have been almost universally agreeable. To wit:

•When I was in grade school, my father hired a Mexican immigrant to trim up the few trees we had in our Kansas back yard. I watched him do it. And whenever a limb would fall to the ground, Mr. Ortega would say "Adios." I'd never heard anyone say "Adios" to a falling tree limb, and it seemed to me a wonderfully kind thing to say.

•Later, when I was in high school, Mr. Ortego's son, Willie, was a year ahead of me. We were in a school where it was nearly mandatory that every male go out for the football team. I was not a very good defensive end, but Willie was, and he went out of his way to say nice things about my efforts—and to treat me as an equal.

•Four years later, in 1954, a friend of mine and I went into a cafe in Clayton, New Mexico, on our way home from the horse races in Raton, New Mexico. We'd been betting the ponies for three days, and on the last day we didn't cash a single ticket. We were flat broke, hungry, and nearly out of gas. The saint disguised as a waitress in the Clayton cafe, Dolores Sanchez, listened to our tragicomic story and then lent us $5—in those days enough money to pay for our hamburgers and malts and for sufficient gasoline to get home on.

•And in 1982, our daughter, Amy, was a member of a Spanish class that was flying down to Mexico City for a first-hand look at the culture. But en route, her appendix burst and she ended up in a Mexico City hospital. The hospital specialist in such matters—I think his name was Dr. Ruiz—performed the necessary surgery to take care of the burst appendix. By the time I got to Mexico City four days later, Dr. Ruiz had flown off to Paris to deliver a paper on peritonitis. The hospital graciously allowed me to sleep rent-free on a couch in Amy's room while we waited for her to heal enough that we could fly back to Lincoln. Dr. Ruiz' wife and daughter drove us around to see the sights in Mexico City on several of those days, then drove us to the airport when it came time to leave.

So I'll say it again: The people from Mexico that I've been around have almost always been nice folks.

And that leads me—in an indignant tone of voice—to some questions:

Why do we treat Mexican citizens as heinous criminals if they try to cross the border into the U.S. without the proper papers? Do we treat them the same way we treat Canadians who cross the border illegally? Do we treat them the same way Mexico treats U.S. citizens who cross into Mexico without authorization?

The Truth, Mainly

And why is the U.S. House of Representatives even considering a bill that would make it a felony to help Mexicans trying to cross the border?

What that means, according to a story by Michael Riley in the Jan. 2 Denver Post, is that it would be a crime for U.S. church groups, among others, to continue leaving bottles of drinking water along the Mexico-Arizona border in an effort to avoid a repetition of the deaths last year of "at least 279 people" who died from the heat and lack of water while they were trying to enter the U.S.

It also means that it would be a crime for an Arizona organization called "No More Deaths" to transport border-crossers to a hospital or a church for medical treatment.

And it means that even if I had the chance, Mr. Ortega, Willie, Dolores, Dr. and Mrs. Ruiz, I'd never be able to look you in the eye again.

And that loud splashing noise we just heard? I'm guessing it's the Statue of Liberty collapsing into New York Harbor.

You know, the statue that's been there since 1886, standing on a pedestal on which is engraved Emma Lazarus' famous poem that ends with the words we all learned in junior high school:

"Give me your tired, your poor,/ Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,/The wretched refuse of your teeming shore./ Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me./I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Well, it's pretty to think so."

Ghetto Fascis

I was drinking on a porch with a woman named Maria the other night. She did eighteen months in prison awhile back, she didn't say for what. Dropped the 'I don't have to look for trouble, it always finds me.' I let her borrow my phone to call a homeboy of hers. She has two friends who killed people. One of them got in a fist fight with another guy, lost, and then decided to change the outcome after the fact by going home, grabbing his gun, and then returning to shoot the winner in the head.

Her friend arrived. Apparently the night before they had been drinking and Maria punched him a few times in the head out of jealousy for some amorous attention that the man had been showing to another woman. He was still angry, had walked three miles to tell her he was still mad, instead of telling her off over the phone or ignoring the call. 'If I were a bitch you would be knocked the fuck out right now' he said. She alternated between apologizing and daring him to hit her. He said that he didn't hit women. It continued this way for fifteen minutes before I made my way away, how long it went on after that... I've seen arguments reach the threshold of a fight and then stay at that level for hours before, usually between friends or lovers on the low end. They know that it would be wrong to fight each other, but if they back down; their anger is all they have you see.

We've all met people who take pride in claiming that they never back down, never compromise. Maybe you're such a person yourself. I say take pride in claiming because you, me and everybody knows that it isn't really true. If you drove to work this morning without killing anyone then you backed down to someone. But what if someone who takes pride in this conceit has no job to drive to, 'nothing to lose' as the cliche goes?

Think of the way that the old Greek heroes, the demigods, feel emotion; how they are never just cheekily aroused but always bursting with the love-venom of a thousand arrows of Eros, never merely annoyed against one who wrongs them but always filled with all the wrath of a thousand lions, vowing to tear down heaven itself if that's what it takes to gain their revenge, and empowered by their wrath to do exactly that. Or think of people who either remain in abusive relationships or drift from one bad relationship to another because they seem to equate any strong emotion, positive or negative, with erotic passion. The Eminem song from last summer 'Love the Way you Lie' captures this mindset very well, annoying top 40 tropes aside. Or take Joe Jackson's 'Fools in Love' which observes a similar quality more artfully if less dramatic and more generally.

"Fools in Love, they think they're heroes, cause they get to feel more pain."

Behind everyone who expresses guilt, however sincere, about a bad temper, you may be assured that a part of them takes pride in being capable of an anger strong enough to destroy windows, closet doors, neighbors cars, faces. 'What a grand creature I am, that my feelings can destroy, how the universe must tremble before me.' Behind any violent feud or low-scale gang tribal warfare; you will find this arrogant idea taken to its extreme. 'My feelings are more important than life and death. My feelings are more powerful than life and death. The fact that my emotions can move me to kill and die make me more than a man.' Hatfields and McCoys, Grangerfords and Shepardsons, Bloods and Crips, this religion vs. that one vs. that one vs. that one....

To turn to music again, if you've heard the Clash's 'London Calling' (which you probably have since this is only the world wide web and isn't accessible to creatures trapped in black holes.) you may have noticed that many of its songs are partly about poor people enchanted with the idea that their own capacity for violence is the greatest power that people can have, the Only True Power that human beings can have. Those who seek and gain wealth and political clout are living lies. But everyone is born with a pair of hands that they can kill somebody else with. So let's go forth and die for the cause of -------- and be the only creatures that are truly alive. Yo te quiero infinito.

Of course, the general sentiment is usually a good deal more mild and mundane then that. Another row at the Henderson house, a few dozen arrests over the course of a lifetime for mutual assault, two friends horrified at the thought of making the other bleed but still compelled to express their outrage, minute after minute into hour after hour, until either the tension breaks and someone throws a punch or they just get too tired to keep it up any longer. Annoying, pathetic, and even a bit comedic, is usually all it is. But then again it might be you who runs into the guy who really, really, can't stand to lose a fistfight.

This One Time

There was an MTV show, a couple years after the turn of the century, they would send pop stars to third world countries for psuedo-Peace Corps type 'work.' There was this one episode where they sent Mya to somewhere in, Central Africa I think. She talked about how spiritual it was, naturally.

Well, there was this one scene where Mya had a croowd of villagers gathered in a rough circle. They were all chanting and playing precussion instruments while she sang the chorus to 'Ghetto Superstar', over and over again, trying to build momentum to some sort of communial ecstasy.

I have no real point here, I just wanted to say that, this shit actually happened, is all.

Haven't gotten a hold of her stuff in awhile:


All the former presidents are always invited to the state of the union address. This January 21st there were no former presidents seated at the state of the union address. None have been in the news for three months. Where are they?"

"NATO headquarters complained that the no-fly zone was inappropriate because a Christian reformed Gadhaffi is a lot better than a terrorist army that's mostly from Iran."

"Obama has done away with elderly and non pot smokers in America through biononethicals." ...... "Many have been given alcohol injections. Alcohol injections are always lethal. Those that complain have been given self infliction statements in cell phones or Moslem infestations. In Bahrain police use sticks and stones instead of arsenals so they don't self inflict later."

"We have to help halt the 90% fatal in a month tuberculosis with or without the AIDS disease. Humans need to date with 100 questions, then exchange a ring and then see a shelter together."


If there is radiation fallout or a meltdown the only way to not get radiation is to be inside a room with no door or window with six feet of dirt on all sides.

How do you get outside again? A human wouldn't want to get out for two thousand years."

All I Have to Say About The Tournament

I was sort of pulling for the Richmond Spiders.

P.S./One more thing:

Jesus Christ what an fuckass ugly dead squirrel rape of a game.


"Ms. Bachmann, who moved to Minnesota as a teenager, eagerly recounted how her Norwegian ancestors settled near Waterloo, Iowa. And she confides that she was raised a Democrat — she and her husband, Marcus, worked for Jimmy Carter’s 1976 campaign — but she had an awakening reading a Gore Vidal book that she found to be “'mocking our founding fathers.'”

Radicalism: The Belief that Everyone Else is.

Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey has recently sent out a letter repping for current Senator and Def Jam recording mate Ben Nelson warning of the boost that the 'Radical Right' would gain from a Nelson defeat. Conservatives here have naturally taken offense to the notion that they're 'radical' or otherwise menacing in any way. They point out that their beliefs are well within the American mainstream, at least out here in Real America among the only people who should be allowed to vote, and state further that Kerrey is guilty of great crimes up to and including living in New York.

And in truth they do have something of a point. Where after all is the objective line where support for lower income taxes transforms from strongly conservative to radical? A demand for a 10% cut? 30%?, a flat tax? Of course there's no line at all. Radicalism is relative, up to a point. A belief cannot be radical based on what policy it specifically calls for, no matter how unusual or unpopular this proposal may be. It is the attitude behind beliefs that make them radical; wherever you see the insistence that one's principals and underlying assumptions are so obviously true that no sane or decent person can possibly dispute them, that disagreement is in itself proof of secret malevolence, there you find radicalism.

In this sense the recent Right-Wing rebranding of Nelson, the insistence that his behavior in the health care Kabuki act, using his position as a swing vote to gain special favors for his home state, was some new and dark turn, instead of the same obfuscating aw-shucks vacillation that he openly campaigned on, is indeed based on the attitude of radicalism. The 'Cornhusker Kickback' is just one of many stupid canards about the obviously evil motives of the health care bills' supporters and hidden evils in the bill itself.

And we have also seen this attitude of radicalism increasingly entrench itself within the American Right more and more generally through the years; the insistence that disagreement with their self-confirming interpretation of the Constitution can only be based on ignorance or hatred of the Constitution, that anyone who opposes some ill-defined (Because it does not and cannot exist) 'Pure Capitalism' can only be a socialist, that everyone who supports Roe V. Wade know themselves to be complicit in the slaughter of millions of literal equivalents of Michelle Tanner, etc. The fact that conservatives are prone to imagining themselves as the eternal standard of American normality does not preclude them from being 'radical'. It does just the opposite.

They're both old stories you've probably heard. Research has discovered that prayer has some mysterious role in helping sick people recover, and that science has also discovered that people who believe in God live longer. There's a an electric bulletin board at Westfield Pharmacy, across from my mom's liquor store in North Platte, that dutifully reports these medical facts to its customers. Medical facts that are not in fact, strictly true in the scientific, medical, or factual sense. But isn't it lovely to think so?

The promises of Christianity, especially the flamboyant Evangelical sort, are simply somewhat more overt versions of what most religions promise. Eternal Life, 'The Truth shall set you free', 'Praise God for victory say the Pentecostals.' There is clearly something deep within us that equates the ability to ascertain moral truth with physical health, strength, vitality. So that being morally or philosophically wrong is equated with disease, frailty, corruption and the grave.

It's a distinctly human train of thought. Reason, intuition and fallacy blended together into a perfect whole. 'It's good to be alive. It's good to be wise. It's good to be good. So naturally some generic, ultimate goodness connecting them all must be the reason why I get a similar endorphin buzz with every positive experience.' God is love.

It's also distinctly human that this benign-in-itself delusion would lead people to believe absurdities and commit atrocities for the sake of maintaining it. Because it is clearly the association of being right with power and life. (the refusal to accept that the truth will not necessarily set you free, will not be of the slightest help in gaining happiness or material well-being) that leads the rise of a fanatical element within every belief system; political, religious, or esoteric, impossible to avoid. If being right makes you strong, then attaining physical supremacy over non-believers should be the ultimate proof of being right, and there will always be those who are overwhelmed with lust for this proof. It's because they manfully know themselves to be right, you see, that entitles them to take whatever desperate measures are necessary to prove to achieve victory and prove to themselves that they are right.

The central conceit of any brand of fundamentalism, that there is really no such thing as human moral reasoning, but only an eternal, unified, indisputable block of truth that can only be embraced or rebelled against in whole, is at base a denial or mortality. Embrace the perfect indisputable truth and you will never be sick.

P.S. Today, is, among other things, my 30th birthday. Fuck you too buddy.

Satanism on The Internet


There are, apparently, high-level officials in the Vatican, people who are major figures of the modern, 21st century world, are entitled to a full team of professional bodyguards courtesy of any nation they visit, who make full use of the internet, take full advantage of the latest medical and scientific advances, can make at least a bit of small talk in several languages; etc, etc, who honestly believe that there is such a thing as Satanism. Not, mind you, Anton Levey's 'Objectivism for theatre geeks' but bonafide 'getting drunk on virgin blood, Speaking Latin backwards while wearing a mask made out of a goat skull , ritualized infant rape, gleefully getting sodomized by Old Scratch himself' Satanism. Furthermore they believe that these real-deal Satanists are using the internet to lure children who aren't using their computer time for something more spiritually healthy, like arranging to meet Fr. Jim after midnight for a walk through the park.

I have nothing further to add to this. The fact that this is something that Serious, Important Men actually believe really does speak for itself doesn't it?

Before you opened up your gap

But now I take it all back
Cause you gave me all your pussy
And ya even licked my balls
Leave your number on the cabinet
And I promise baby, I'll give ya a call
Next time I'm feelin kinda horny
You can come on over, and I'll break you off
And if you can't fuck, that day, baby
Just lay back, and open your mouth
Cause I have never

The Unicameral is considering a bill banning legal defences of 'insanity due to crunkness.'

"If you make a conscious choice to drink or get high, you should be held responsible for your behavior," (Colby) Coash said before the vote. "History has shown that neither jurors nor the public at large accept the idea that someone should be legally excused for criminal acts due to claiming temporary 'mental illness' after voluntarily ingesting drugs or alcohol. It is time to remove the possibility of this defense for good."

The first part of Coashs' statement is in fact true, and then he cites the fact that jurors do not typically but this line of defense as reason for why they should not be allowed to.

Well, I suppose I would only be a criminal-loving fairy if I pointed out how stupid this is; so; alright then.

The Missouri House has given first-round approval to proposed state constitutional amendment that would guarantee Missourians the right to express their religious beliefs in public places.
The sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Mike McGhee, R-Odessa, says school children, among others, are being targeted for professing their religious beliefs.
McGhee cited instances where school children wearing crosses and carrying Bibles have been removed from classrooms.
McGhee's amendment specifies that the religious activities must be voluntary and subject to the same rules and regulations of all other forms of speech.

So, it seems that James O'Keefe has 'caught' an NPR executive 'exposing' his private liberal beliefs. This is proof that NPR is liberally biased because... because...., well, it's because you see that conservatism is so obviously correct that it is impossible for anyone to disagree with any part of it with any degree of honesty. So it doesn't matter whether someone 'believes' something non-conservative in their own minds, of if they report any 'facts' in the media which seem to suggest that right-wingers are not the most heroic, paternally wise, masculine, beloved by God creatures on earth. It's all the same conspiracy of petulant rebellion you see.

There Was a Short Time When Marilyn Manson was Huge

'Antichrist Superstar' had just come out. I was a fan, and several friends of mine were, a bit more than fans.

There was this one kid, I forget his name, me and my friend from down the street who's dead now were splitting an fifth of whiskey and an eighth of weed with this kid when he told us he had had an orgy in the cemetery.

My down the street friend, Mexican, absurdly Catholic family, was horrified, wondered aloud how someone could do something so risky, you know, just in case there really is a vengeful God. As for me, I humored them both, but no, I knew that this kid hadn't had any damn orgy in the cemetery and neither did whoever he got that bullshit story from. It was early March, this very same time of year. Nobody loves Satan enough to get there junk frozen off. Come back in summer and maybe I'll believe any story of yours entailing more than under-the-pants fondling.

I had an ear for nonsense from an early age. I still haven't forgiven old flatrock for the rumors that shut down Blackjack pizza, about how the owner had AIDS and would open up his wrists just to bleed on the pizza. That bullshit chased off the best pizza that's ever been to North Platte. Fucking ignorant scerfs.

Just Because.......

I feel like belaboring the obvious....

"The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”
He added, 'They hate Western civilization at the core. That's the problem.'
After asserting that Christianity had not shown any “aggression” to the Muslim world, the former Pennsylvania senator — who is considering a 2012 run for the White House — argued that American intervention in the Middle East helps promote 'core American values.'
'What I'm talking about is onward American soldiers,' he said. 'What we're talking about are core American values. ‘All men are created equal' — that's a Christian value, but it's an American value.'
'It's become part of our national religion, if you will,' he continued. “The point I was trying to make was that the national faith, the national ideal, is rooted in the Christian ideal — in the Judeo-Christian concept of the person.”
Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0211/50054.html#ixzz1EwHRRFm2

...... yup, human equality is a concept that only Christian Americans are good enough to understand, and we therefore have the duty to force others to submit to equality. So, something about 1984 here of course. Man that guy sure Orwelled the everOrwellian fuck out of that Orwell shit by Orwell, how's that?

I felt like belaboring the obvious, like I said. And to belabor it further it must be said that anyone who reads history with a mind towards deciding which side in a conflict comes closest to qualifying as 'us', and then loyally deciding that they were in the right, is not reading history.

And this takes us back to my sabbath post from yesterday, because it is by viewing absolutely every mental exercise as a test of loyalty, of where you stand, that one comes to believe such bloody drivel. Dry is not wet, black is not white, equality is not a force seeking physical supremacy. But Rick Santorum and his ilk or unable to imagine any moral ideal, (or anything at all for that matter) existing in any other essence except that of a force seeking supremacy. So naturally his idea of, not just what he personally feels is right mind you, but his unquestionable knowledge of what is right for all and must if necessary be forced upon the wayward; well, it's just really fucked up isn't it?

It may well be that all of us save saints and coma victims have both the desire to be good and also somewhere within ourselves the desire for complete life-or-death control over others. These two desire contradict each other. To convince yourself that they can ever be rectified is to twist your sense of reality apart like a wet bag. You already knew this, and you'll actually maintain much more dignity in the end if you accept it.

Riffing on 'Man Was Made for The Sabbath'

"Put me down as believing that any theory of moral action that privileges one particular set of rights or goods lexicographically -- i.e., "based on absolute respect for certain rights" and not for other rights or duties -- above all others is, ipso facto, insane.
Sane thinking starts with taking people as ends in themselves and not as means to ideological purity.
Was the Sabbath made for humanity or was humanity made for the Sabbath?"
- Fred Taylor

Taylor's post was in turn inspired by an essay from more libertarian-than-you Sasha Volokh, who brought a satirical 'Onion' article to real life by stating that, yes, as taxes are in fact so God-damned evil that it would be better to let humanity be squashed by an asteroid than to pay for the asteroids' destruction with public money. Obviously this assertion is insane, one of thousands of insane, stupid, and downright evil conclusions that certain people reach every day in the name of internal consistency or True Belief.

And why do we have this tendency to put principle before people, to insist that Man was made for the Sabbath? I think the ultimate explanation for this mindset is that is one of several ways of lying to ourselves that Morality; our response to the soft, vulnerable love we feel for our fellow mortals, can be transformed into Duty, a rock-strong display of masculine courage.

It is a mindset that is by nature belligerent and destructive . When Man is made for the Sabbath then beliefs and opinions become flags. Opinions do not exist for the primary purpose of understanding humanity's problems and interpreting truth, but to display that one is brave enough to have opinions. Tolerance for opposing beliefs is impossible when showing off ones' willingness to fight for his beliefs is seen as the entire point of having them. Violence and social decay are unavoidable when a significant part of the population come to see the ultimate goal of their beliefs to not be their application towards solving practical problems or providing existential comfort but the attainment of physical power and sporting Victory.

The madness of ideological purity (As well as the mad insistence that this is the only form of moral honesty) is something else that becomes unavoidable whenever principle comes before people. The idea that there is any such thing as a pure or corrupted way, a brave or cowardly way, to neurologically process data and draw conclusions should be self-evidently absurd. But when Man is made for the sabbath it becomes essential to believe this nonsense. This is how every question tangentially related to firearms can come to be seen as a test of either absolute support for or absolute enmity towards private gun ownership; how every question tangentially related to taxes, economics, or labor becomes a test of either absolute belief in or absolute rejection of the free market. Just as Man does not live for his own sake, but for the sabbath, so it is that thought does not exist for its own sake, but only ever as a challenge to where you stand.

Simply adhere to the Sabbath always, spend your entire waking life proving your loyalty to it again and again and again, accept that people are less important then the sabbath and that whatever pain you bring them is justified in some way to be determined later. Do this and you will always be stronger and more correct then those children on the outside who must submit to your wisdom. Do this and your soul will be invincible.

Fuck Yeah

Not to watch college basketball until Dick Vitale dies. All the same, good job Huskers.

So Anyway, Here's This.

They see it as their Christian duty. But others disagree, saying it extends the hand of fellowship where it was never intended to go.

Two Protestant churches are taking some heat from critics for opening their church buildings to Muslims needing places to worship because their own facilities were either too small, or under construction.

Heartsong Church in Cordova, Tenn., let members of the Memphis Islamic Center hold Ramadan prayers there last September. And Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Va., allows the Islamic Circle of North America to hold regular Friday prayers in their building while their new mosque is being built.

Diane Bechtol of Aldersgate says this is something Christians are called to do: Be neighborly and develop relationships - even those who don't share your beliefs.

"I think it's a tenet of our Christian faith, and that is that we extend hospitality to the stranger,” said Bechtol. “We are a congregation that wants to be helpful to people and if we are asked to help a neighbor in need, that's what we do."

The U.S. Christian community is divided over whether or not to allow Muslims to use their churches as prayer space -- something that two Protestant churches have already done.

The U.S. Christian community is divided over whether or not to allow Muslims to use their churches as prayer space -- something that two Protestant churches have already done.

But Dr. Alex McFarland, a Christian theologian and radio talk show host, charged these churches “have crossed the line from respect and tolerance, to ... affirmation and endorsement.

"We as the church are called to show love, we're called to help. But to let a building simultaneously be used for the activities of a mosque and also the activities of Jesus Christ, it's just incompatible. And I think it's one more example of political correctness and hyper-tolerance gone awry."

Further examples of hyper-tolerance and political correctness gone awry may include....

"He entered Jericho and was passing through. And there was a man named Zacchae'us; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchae'us, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." And Zacchae'us stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold." And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost." ( Luke 19:1-10)

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Further examples of righteous men bravely protecting their Godly culture from corruption may include.....

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
“Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. [14] [b]
15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? 18 You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. 22 And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.
23 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.
29 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30 And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? 34 Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. 35 And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.
37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. 38 Look, your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’[c]”

Oh, and Dr. McFarland?....

But McFarland says it's good to remember the "political ramifications" of Muslim-Christian interaction.
"What if we went to Muslims and said 'Hey, can we use your mosque for the worship of Jesus, the incarnate son of God, the one that said 'no one comes to the Father but through him.' I doubt there would be a lot of reciprocity’."

Far be it for me now to suggest that a White Protestant Man is capable of being wrong but ummm, you maybe didn't hear about this?

And my late Grandpa, the old farmer, spent his life in the sun, you never would have guessed he was European until winter came around.

Speaking in favor of repealing the law, Rep. Connie O’Brien (R-KS) began telling an anecdote at the hearing about how her son had difficulty in getting financial assistance to attend college. She explained that she took her son to a financial aid office, and as she was waiting in line, she believed there was a girl waiting in line with them who was “not originally from this country.” Fellow committee member Rep. Sean Gatewood (D-KS) asked O’Brien how she knew this student was “illegal.” O’Brien replied that she knew because the student “wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion”:

REP. O’BRIEN: My son who’s a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn’t qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid. My son was kinda upset about it because he works and pays for his own schooling and his books and everything and he didn’t think that was fair. We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was, we didn’t think that was proper. But we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country.

Connie O'Brian's verbal boner reveals the 'illegal means illegal' cry for what it so obviously is; a spoiled toddler screaming that it's just not fair, but since the cry is made by White adults who imagine themselves to be the natural ruling class of God's own Empire, the cry of 'it's not fair' must be made in a paternalistic, moralizing tone.

And of course they have nothing against legal immigration, no of course not. It's only those who break the law that they object to, of course. And how are they able to tell who's legal and whose illegal? Why, assimilation, don't you know. The legal ones are the ones who submit to an imaginary standard, concrete American culture, the WASPness of which being purely coincidental, since it is after all no more our choice than it is theirs to bow down to the eternally unchanging 100% Americanism. Legal immigrants speak perfect unaccented English within days of getting here, never watch soccer, and prefer Taylor Swift to Los Tigres de Norte.

If, on the other hand, you see two poor-looking fellows speaking Spanish in private conversation, there is no question that they are illegals. You can tell because if they really knew English they would know that it's the real language and would never speak their so-called mother tongues again even amongst each other. Why these devils would even start cumming in English if they only loved America enough to will themselves to learn it. and even if they do know English and still choose for whatever reason to speak their gutter tongue to each other, well, that won't do either. One needs to act American in public you know. It is essential to national security that everyone at the K-mart checkout line discuss their sister-in-laws ass in a uniform language.

And of course it's an outrage that their children should receive aid for college. Are we supposed to consider them innocent? Nobody made them break our laws just because their parents did. There's always a market for shoe shiners and prepubescent hookers down south. Nothing prevented these rats from staying in their own homes and supporting themselves.

Sarcasm aside though, exactly how many in the recent Latin wave to the Great Plains are illegal immigrants? The answer is as many as we can bring ourselves to imagine are so, by whatever available pretext, because again it comes down to 'it's not fair.' Because The loss of White demographic dominance, (and the loss of social dominance that must very soon follow from that, no matter how much legal brutality is dished out to the newcomers in however many statehouses.) is seen as illegitimate in itself. It simply can't be natural that we would ever lose control. There simply must be some menacing force behind it, some conspiracy, some malevolence. This is our country, this is our world, everything we see was personally made for us. This can't be happening. It's not fair.

There's This Spot

Just outside of North Platte, behind Buffalo Bill's ranch and the Wild West Arena, if you know where those are, northwest side. The spot is called Buttsex Bridge, at least by me. Whether anyone else calls it that or not, I doubt it, because I've never told anyone that I call it that, except maybe an old girlfriend this one time, but it's more likely that whoever happens to read this will be the first ones I've told.

I named it after graffiti that someone tagged on an oil tank next to a creek bridge. It said 'buttsex'. For the longest time thought it said 'bullsex' because of a company sign partially covered the phrase. No trespassing would be my guess, I never read it. You may think that the phrase 'bullsex' must necessarily to either bestiality betweeen humans and bulls or homosexuality among cattle but that isn't so. The truth is that all mammals masturbate. If you're wondering about the ones who don't have hands, which is most of them of course, well they have their ways. Porcupines will fuck gaps between rocks or twigs. A buck that can't get lucky during mating season can actually bend its dick backwards and get off on its own thighs. I saw it on Discovery. I imagine that bulls do something similar to one or the other. They rape calves too, just as likely their own as not since male cattle don't recognize kin.

They cleaned up the 'buttsex tag' several years ago. I smoked weed there many a time. Still do once every year or so, when I'm home for this or that. Next to the road bridge there's a bridge carrying a canal over a creek. It feeds North Platte River water to the farms between the rivers and North Platte and Hershey. Ungodly filthy water in that canal. A friend of mine fell into it once and got a rash on his calves that ate the top three layers of skin off. But he's a jackass and brings these things on himself.

Disney's Gulag Archipelago

Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and other’s eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. That was how the agents of the Inquisition fortified their wills: by invoking Christianity; the conquerors of foreign lands, by extolling the grandeur of their Motherland; the colonizers, by civilization; the Nazis by race; and the Jacobins (early and late), by equality, brotherhood, and the happiness of future generations.

Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be denied, nor passed over, nor suppressed. How, then, do we dare insist that evildoers do not exist? And who was it that destroyed these millions? Without evildoers there would have been no Archipelago.

There is A God.


Seriously, I'm a bit torn between numbness and extreme emotionality brought about by three days of drinking someone's left behind homewrecker of bourbon, but I really do think I'm joyful right now.

Well The Sun is Out

Weak-ass pale winter sunlight that bounces off of the snow stronger than it actually signs. Still it's a first step. I've been thinking of the phrase 'dead of winter', what would make a good quasi-objective definition of the term. Well, let's say that the 'winter season', if not winter proper, begins with the first solidish precipitation of the fall, be it snow, sleet or whatever. The 'Dead of Winter' then begins on the first day where the daytime high is below twenty degrees Fahrenheit and ends on the last night that drops into single digits Fahrenheit. How's that?

I read the NYT article last week about the jet streams unusually dramatic dip to the south explains why the last two American winters have been unusually harsh, at least by modern standards. I remember that in my childhood and youth Nebraska winters were simply not that bad. 'Alberta clippers', those northern blast-fronts we've been constatly bombarded with since the week before Christmas, were once-a-season rarities. There were only five or six days out of the whole year that were truly bone-cold: Usually it was merely chilly, somewhere in the twenties or thirties, nothing that one couldn't be perfectly comfortable in as long as he had his gloves wool hat and the rest, and even this was broken up by frequent southern thaws pushing temps up into the fifties or sixties.

This shit right here fucking sucks, is what I'm trying to say. But it will be back into the lower thirties this weekend. It's February now and maybe this will be the last time it drops very far below that. Maybe this is the last week of the dead of winter. Or maybe not.

Journeying To the Black Realms of the Human Soul With Stuart Little: Part 1

"When Mrs. Frederick C. Little's second son arrived, everybody noticed that he was not much bigger than a mouse. The truth of the matter was, the baby looked like a mouse in every way"

Thus begins E.B. White's psychosocialsexual nightmare of a novel, and it's never suggested that little Stuart doesn't arrive 'in the usual way' to paraphrase Harry Chapin. The logical assumption for a reader to make is that Stuart is in fact a sentient mouse physically born to a human mother, and of course there's only one obvious explanation for how this occured. How then does Stuart's 'father', old Fred Little himself, deal with such extreme humiliation? Certainly it's painful enough for a wife to be unfaithful with some virile young pool boy or old flame from college, but a mouse? (Surely EB White could have named this poor cuckold something a bit more settle than 'Mr. Little'.)

As a matter of fact, the way that the senior Little responds to his wife's infidelety is seemingly to not do so at all. He makes an outward show of accepting this mouseman as his own son and raising him as such. Yet just beneath this show of acquiescence we see Fred taking several small passive-aggresive measures of revenge. He subjects the mousechild to aural torture under the pretext of holding up a faulty piano key. (Stuart, perhaps showing signs of self-loathing brought about by his 'father's' barely concealed hatred, is said to 'like all the same') And then there's this seemingly off-hand comment made at the end of chapter 2.

"' After all he does look a good deal like a mouse,' said Mr. Little to his wife. 'And I've never seen a mouse yet that didn't like to go into a hole.'"
'And neither have you you besitial whore' is the obvious implication here.

Most telling of all though is the scene near the very beginning of the story, in which Mrs. Little drops her wedding ring down a bathtub drain. And Frederick, after watching his wife make several futile attempts at fishing the ring out with a bent hairpin, casually sends his supposed son on a dangerous mission to retrieve the ring himself.
Let us elaborate further what is going on here. The bathtub drain is described as 'slimy', and since Mr. Little has just bathed himself, it's reasonible to conclude here that much of this 'slime' is in fact his very own body filth. So here we have the wife, dropping the symbol of wedding vows we know she has violated into what can be accurately described as a corrupted, dirty canal. Yet at the same time much of the foulness of this drain has just been washed off of Frederick's own body. He then ties Stuart to a string and sends him down the drain to retrieve the ring himself, which the eagar-to please mousechild dutifully does. So when Stuart and the ring emerge out of the canal into the light the author makes it clear that both are now covered in 'Fred's slime'. This is clearly an attempt by the senior Little to restore his marraige and rechristian Stuart as his own true son after the fact. But erstatz ritual can never take away his sense of inadequacy and betrayal, and his indirect manner of dealing with these feelings can be nothing but slow poison to both his family and himself.

In summing up the opening chapters of 'Stuart Little' (the origins of Stuart himself and Fred Little's cryptic yet still malevolent reaction), I can not help but notice some very clear parallels to the biblical Nativity story. My own theory is that White intended 'Stuart Little' at least partly as a savage parody of the birth of Christ and an oblique denunciation of Christianity itself. Fred Little is of course Joseph, the bizzarely sanguine accidental stepfather. Yet what does it mean for Jehovah to be paired with a mouse? My guess here is that this is White's way of saying that Fred Little/Joseph is not the only victim of emasculation here, that the birth of marked a sudden change from the harsh warrior-God of the Old Testament to a decidedly softer and more effeminate diety, and I fear that the manner in which the animal/human hybrid Stuart evokes old Greek myths may be intended as a hidden dog-whistle call for some kind of fascist/warrior ethos.

Whatever the case may be, there are many other dark themes appearing in this novel that must be examined, and shall be examined by yours trully in due time.

Saw A Couple of Falcons This Weekend

One was casually resting on a chain-link fence with a dead robin in its left talons, looking at through and past me as it scanned the street-level for whatever. It's one of those things that's perhaps interesting only in the sense that it's something one will probably see only once or twice in one's life. I mean it's weird that a raptor would even bother hunting over a town, let alone successfully. Songbirds and rodents have so many advantages in the city, so many trees and houses for cover. And it's something I feel oddly special somehow for witnessing.

A Quick Note on Tunisia

KAMEL RIAHI's op-ed piece in yesterday's New York Times, describing his and his family's experience in the current uprising there, is profoundly moving, describing on the one hand the sincere thrill that comes from the sudden realistic hope for liberty, and the horror of social chaos on the other. Riahi is a professional writer, and it should go without saying that those who express themselves for a living have, in addition to the basic needs of human dignity that demand liberty, the most to materially gain from a free environement. Yet the true force of his article comes from the way he observes that he, his wife, or his child may be killed by any faction at any time for any or no reason. The matter-of fact way he describes this reality, (in the manner of a Seattle man taking an umbrella with him on a clear day, because you never know,)should act as a stern rebuke to anyone who romanticises political strife or struggle, anyone who seeks psuedo immortality by subsuming themselves into a great cause and denying the frailties of human life; the universality of suffering, futile love, and unattainible hope that is the true bond of loyalty between us all.

Good luck to these Tunisians and whatever neighbors of theirs may be inspired by their example to fight for their humanity. And do keep in mind that force of numbers is obviously your biggest strength; so, these cases of people burning themselves alive are really counterproductive, to say the least. This is a battle for life, wouldn't you agree?

The Penis Full of Assholes: Year Two of The Chamberless Chamber:

Senator Tony fulton has introduced a bill banning the prescription of the 'abortion drug' RU486, via teleconference. This is a service that has been used by some women in rural Iowa, and Fulton, you see, is concerned that there are safety issues involved in the doctor not being there to give the prescription in person. He emphasizes over and over again that he is only concerned, in his words, for the safety of the MOTHER. Never mind that this scenario necessarily requires the women in question making it quite clear that they don't want to be mothers. These are women after all, and the fact that God put them here to produce men isn't for them to decide. But again, this sacred truth is neither here nor there. It's about safety you see. It is absolutely essential to the safety of the fuckmaid/man factory that the doctor be there in person, and not on the phone, for the following exchange.

Woman: I'm pregnant and don't want to be.
Dr: Oh, well, here's a prescription for RU486.
Woman: Ok thanks bye.

You can see from this example that the safety of the MOTHER would be in dire peril if this exchange was done over video or teleconference because, because........., because the truth is whatever Real Christian Americans will it to be, how many times do we have to tell you?

There is the fact that the bill allows for the husband, parents, or maternal grandparents of the MOTHER to sue the doctor who does give these little Satan pills out over the phone, or even file an injunction to prevent him from performing abortions. But again, this is in no way a means of providing for legal harassment of abortion providers under blatantly contrived pretexts. (Though what would be wrong if it was anyway? Just imagine that you're a husband in this situation. How would old Chris Columbus feel if the Savages simply pulled his flag out out of the sand and tossed it back into the drink?) It's simply about ensuring the safety of insolent sluts who WILL be Mothers goddamnit. And Senator Tony Fulton is in no way a slimy shithouse rat.

In other news, Governor Heineman has apparently taken issue with former Lincoln Mayor Don Wesely's work with a unicam lobbying firm. Apparently the governor shares my own and many others' concerns about former politicians going into the lobbying business and the corrupting influence this may have on.....

No wait, he was only mad that Wesely was representing the Humane Society for a time. You see the HSUS has caused a small stir in Nebraska recently by suggesting farmers might perhaps consider improving the conditions of farm animals; and by extension this required suggesting that not only is it possible for farmers to cause their animals to suffer needlessly, but also that it's possible for farmers to commit moral error at all. This is wrong you see, because farmers are nothing more then hard-working, salt-of the earth people trying to make a living; and also vastly superior to us decadent surfs living in town and far beyond our scrutiny.

"no Nebraskan should be working for the HSUS." says the gov. And remember, you are not legally allowed to eat in this state until you have paid homage in your particular trade wares to your local manor lord.
