In the Gayvy

19 09 2016

Washington, D.C.

I’m not surprised that the Gayvy is the branch which is doing this first.

I think it’s more proof of the theory that the reason why gay cis men are so defensive of transgenders is because so many gay men seriously think they’ll want to go transgender.

And if you didn’t know how I was going to end this post, you must not have been paying attention in the last 13 years.

Wicked Feminist Profiling Trick

9 08 2016

Oakland, California

First off, what kind of surname is Anti-Palindrome?

Whatever the answer, the feminist essayist (“queer/femme antagonist”) with that surname has a new essay on how camouflage clothing is anti-feminist.

I didn’t need to go any further.

It’s because high-T man’s man types wear it either for official public duties (the military-police spectrum), or unofficial private pursuits (e.g. hunting, civilian militia, paintball).

Am I right?  Or am I wicked right?

Remember, feminist-lesbian-Jews want women in full active military combat, and Obama has gotten them 99% of the way there.

The raison d’etre of Earth, circa August 9, 2016, is to troll me and specifically and explicitly me.

Rest of the DNC Open Thread

26 07 2016


While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968.  Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.

My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.

Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school.  These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection.  Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD.  They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them.  They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.

EU wants its own standing army, because NATO won’t defend Europe.

I know, right?  NATO members states’ armed forces aren’t defending Europe from the immigration invasion, (which Angela Merkel asked for, shhh), so the EU wants its own army that won’t defend Europe from the immigration invasion (hint:  the EU and Germany are basically the same thing, shhh).

Short Answer: Nothing.

Carr Square

“All the neat stuff that’s going to go up around it.”


“These 3,000 people that work there need places to live, eat and shop.”

But they already have places to live, and they’re nowhere near the corner of Parnell and St. Louis Avenue, they’re not going to shop on that corner, either, and they’ll eat at the company cafeteria, or brown bag it.

Believe me, they’ll build only what they need to between Cass, Jefferson/Parnell, St. Louis Avenue, and 22nd, and not one square foot more, and the people that work there will only be there for as long as they need to to do their jobs.

The video says that moving the civilian part of NGA to Arnold sprouted all sorts of new businesses around there.  Yes, because it’s Arnold, not Bell Curve City St. Louis.  That and people actually want to be around Norm.

Rationality By a Nose

30 05 2016

South County

Every Memorial Day between 1989 and 2012, I visited the final resting place of my affinite uncle, the late husband of my mother’s oldest sister, at Jefferson Barracks.  He was a Korea vet, and the Pentagon technically considers his late 1988 death to be a war casualty, because it was a delayed onset of a war injury.

In the fall of 2012, during the height of campaign season, a great uncle of mine, my mother’s mother’s youngest brother, died, and while he retired to Phoenix, he was also buried at JB.  Korean vet.  Which means MD 2013, I had two final resting places to visit.

If you’ve been reading me for long enough, you know what happened two months later.  And yes, you can figure out where he was buried.  Also a Korean vet.

Which means that starting with the MD two years ago, I now have three final resting places to visit at JB.

I asked him today to forgive me for killing him.  Even though I know better.  The only reason I’m still not freaking out about it is that the rational half of my brain is barely holding back the emotional half.

And then I realize my younger uncle, Vietnam, who was, like every MD, with us for the visits, turns 70 this summer.  And I’m not ready for a fourth visit.

Then I wanted to wash my brain out with soap for even thinking that.  I already jinxed one uncle in the ground, I don’t want to do it to another.

Even though he had to be thinking that it really won’t be that much longer in the greater scheme of things that he’ll be there for good.  He certainly looked this morning like that was on his mind.  But I dare not say.

It’s Called “Begging for a Presidential Pardon”

Washington, D.C.


Remember when he was talked up as Presidential material?

Invade the world, invite the world, in hock to the world, be censored because of the world.

Tell me again that terrorism doesn’t work.
