Random Thoughts: Chicago Politicians, Obama and VA, and Feminism

Posted on May 27, 2014 9:00 am

We’re really talking about reparations? Well, we’re just taking leaps and bounds into the future, aren’t we.

The left seems much more stuck in the past than the right, these days.

So how many people are in prison for the IRS, Fast & Furious, and VA government abuse scandals?

Back in my day, people would say how back in their day things were really tough. You kids have it easy; you don’t hear how tough things were.

Luckily there are tv shows out there for if I ever wonder what Meghan McCain thinks about politics.

Remember when we elected a Chicago politician president and then were surprised he was corrupt as a Chicago politician? That was fun.

“I’m sure this politician is going to be a caring, transcendent figure. And I’m sure this drug dealer is going to have a heart of gold.”

There are still enthusiastic supporters of President Obama? I can see partisans with grudging support, but enthusiastic is a bit baffling.

Well, Nickelback sells concert tickets and tshirts. I guess there can still be fervent Obama fans.

Who am I to judge what makes people happy? I just wish you had an obsession that didn’t make me lose my favorite health insurance plan.

“I keep seeing all these horrible things on the news. Someone should do something about them.” -President Obama

President Obama will get things done about the VA as soon as he figures out who is Congressman is so he can write a letter to him.

I don’t get the Piketty controversy; I thought the left had long ago divorced economics from math.

I have signed the contract. My novel is getting published. IN YOUR FACE, SPACE COYOTE!

Finally saw the 2nd Hobbit movie. Was enjoying it until the final half hour where I was like, “Does this thing end?”

Seems like that half hour long pointless battle with Smaug that doesn’t go anywhere could’ve been cut.

Watching Cool as Ice RiffTrax. Very high expectations for mockery of a Vanilla Ice vehicle.

I remember the olden days when we couldn’t make hashtags to solve our problems and actually had to do something about them.

How do you teach a man not to sexualize a woman in skimpy clothing? Sounds like the heterosexual equivalent of gay conversion therapy.

A realistic feminism needs to recognize that the main culprit of sexism is evolution.

I’m all for fighting our worse nature to better ourselves, but recognize that’s never a simple thing.

“Maybe if we say ‘Thanks NRA!’ in response to a shooting tragedy, that will reverse the 50yr trend toward greater gun rights.” -smart people

I know it’s a little late, but my FOIA request on FDR’s birth certificate came back and he was born in Kenya.

If you want to honor the sacrifice, do something grand with all the opportunities and advantages you’ve been given.

I have more confidence I’ll one day play Half Life 4 than that I’ll read book 7 of Game of Thrones.

A good name for a rock band catering to young activists would be “Rage Against Reality.”

    No, they divorced economics from reality. They still use math – but it’s the nutty Common Core type where 8+puppy=√unicorn .

    Well, if I were cutting for length, I would have cut the stuff that wasn’t in the book and only relates to the larger tale of the one ring, instead of the tale of Bilbo Baggins having his great adventure.

    @2 – CCO – So… you would’ve just made one good 3-hour movie instead of 3 bad ones? I think I could get behind that plan. I mean, I never thought I’d get bored watching Orcs getting beheaded, but man… Legolas’s screen-time was quite the yawn-fest.

    Guess we’ll just have to wait for 10-20 years after this debacle & someone can make a nice Hobbit reboot.

    So far as I can tell, a fair few feminists have clued in to the role of natural selection. Just made ‘em madder (doesn’t everything), and shifted the goal to re-engineering the species by any means possible, preferably by enforcing new social mores to shove selection in a less natural direction.

    They scare the hell out of me.

    “Realistic feminism” is, like “non-parasitic lawyer” or “public education”, a contradiction in terms.

    how about ” My Diapers Need Changing”?

    So how many people are in prison for the IRS, Fast & Furious, and VA government abuse scandals? ~ It’s the same as the amount of people who went to jail for Benghazi.

    Huh? What?
    Oh, I thought someone mentioned my name.
    Never mind!
