Random Thoughts: Feminism, Nude Photos, and Unions

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 9:20 am

FUN FACT: Feminism was invented by Virginia Slims cigarettes as a marketing ploy.

Are progressives theoretically willing to shoot people over plastic bags? If someone keeps using them, you’ll send people with guns to stop them?

It’s a good idea to take nude photos of yourself in case you forget what you look like nude and don’t have time to take your clothes off.

This is all good news for my new business, SecureNudeStorage.com .

Jennifer Lawrence is just happy hackers didn’t get that video of her pretending to be Darth Maul.

They allow nude pictures on the internet?

Most women’s hard drives are filled up with nothing but recipes they saved from Pinterest and nude selfies.

There are still unions in the 21st century?

What happened to the dinosaurs was they unionized and we’re replaced by more efficient mammals.

Why do we need a day to celebrate laborers? It’s not a charitable service they’re providing; they get paid for it.

Please, leave gaming a refuge from stupid politics. I just want to blow up and kill things in peace. #GamerGate

The tolerance police are basically the modern day puritans. We need less tolerance for the insufferably self-righteous.

Before taking nude photos, make sure to weigh the best possible outcome of that versus the risks.

Accomplishments, Strategies, and Bacon Forgetting

Friday, August 29, 2014 9:12 am

So who exactly is the red dye numbering authority?

“They’re grrrrrreat! By the way, I’m not a tiger.”

1st book in the Game of Thrones series turned old enough to vote this month. It’ll be collecting social security before series is finished.

I’m just kidding; there won’t be any social security left for anyone by then.

Way things are going with all of Obama’s touted accomplishments, Osama bin Laden soon going to come out of the sea even aliver than before.

But who explains to the explainers?

So how scared should we be of problems with Russia? We took away their nukes when we won the Cold War, right?

Hillary: “Having thought on Ferguson for three weeks, I would like to say that bad things are bad and good things are good.”

I’ve never been a president of the United States before, but aren’t strategies for dealing with America’s enemies like job number one?

The president’s press conference cut to black at the end and it’s up to the viewer to decide whether or not he had a strategy.

So was the idea behind Vox that Media Matters needed more graphs?

It’s Obama’s directionless leadership that makes America’s enemies feel free to say things like, “Hello Kitty isn’t a cat.”

Gah! 5 Guys forgot my bacon again! I swear they forget more than they remember.

“5 Guys Who Can Never Remember the Bacon” they should be called.

I did it. Reported that 5 Guys. You forget my bacon a half dozen times, that’s it. Would have reported sooner except everyone there so nice.

I am not cool. I have never been cool. And I have no desire to be cool. That’s what makes me cool.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs seemed more an interactive story than a game. Nothing in it amounted to a challenge.

A few things in it seemed meant to be puzzles, but the solutions were all straightforward and required no searching or thought.

I was quite interested in the story, though, so I wasn’t bored by it.

Dear Esther was also interesting, but even much less a game than Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

Which isn’t to say things have to be games – just I was expecting a game with the Amnesia sequel and that wasn’t what it was.

Random Thoughts: Cloud, Vox, and Hello Kitty

Thursday, August 28, 2014 9:13 am

Dropbox is now giving me 5 times as much space for 40% less in price. Yay competition!

Until upload speeds are much higher, it’s pretty hard to switch cloud drives when you have a lot of files, though.

I notice Apple isn’t even trying to compete on cloud pricing. 55GB for $100 year – can’t see anyone but biggest Apple loyalists pay that.

Ah, the free market. We’re constantly getting better products for cheaper prices while everyone else is waiting in line for bread.

The rich keep getting richer, and all we get in exchange are these boundless luxuries at constantly lowering prices.

So what percentage of gun deaths are children firing fully automatic weapons?

You can’t assert the genders in marriage are arbitrary but the numbers involved is somehow sacrosanct.

I’m kinda digging Vox as performance art.

David Chase told me they had Tony get shot between the eyes, but camera went dead and they couldn’t reset it.

I actually only watched through season 3 of Sopranos. I guess by missing the finale I literally missed nothing.

I wish Lost had just cut to black for its entire final episode.

I have to hand it to Vox: I’ve never seen clownish nonsense presented in such an aesthetically pleasing manner.

A fun thing to do if I was a political candidate would be to never be seen without an owl on my shoulder and never answer questions about it.

The best way for the NYTimes editorial board to explain any of their political decisions would be with three words: “We’re soulless hacks.”

Hello Kitty. Goodbye Sanity.

“Hello Kitty is people! It’s made out of people! Tell the world!”

Random Thoughts: Swing Copters, Canada, and Feminism

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 9:23 am

Got a galley copy of my new book. See? I didn’t make it up.

I thought the new game from the maker of Flappy Birds was too hard to be addictive, but I was wrong.

The recent change to it to give some clear skies before the first obstacle helps you get in the rhythm of things.

Stings are in the hands of the bee holder.

There’s little more American than doing all you can to avoid paying taxes.

Dollars in the free market can flourish and reproduce, while dollars in the hands of the government get butchered.

If were losing businesses to Canada over taxes, then the problem is with us and not the businesses.

The country that remained loyal to our British oppressors somehow has better taxes. That’s not right.

I won’t believe you’re a feminist if you can’t demonstrate proper firearm usage.

Will feminism ever advance to the point I can tell my wife to kill the spider herself, or is that just being unrealistic?

Wasn’t one of the temptations in the desert Satan trying to get Jesus to recline His airplane seat?

“You deserve it. You did pay for the seat.”
“Get behind me, Satan!”

I don’t care about corporate taxes. I feel I’m getting a big enough benefit from Apple if they weren’t paying a dime of taxes.

Your benefit should come companies making great products at affordable prices. The taxes they pay are inconsequential in comparison.

The military is the one part of the government that functions well because it’s the only part actually meant to destroy things.

It’s become confusing what is and isn’t feminism. Easy rule: If you can imagine yourself taking it seriously, it’s probably not feminism.

If women aren’t getting equal pay for equal work, have they tried nagging?

Do you want equality, or do you want to run to the government every time you think you have a problem?

Have they found one actual instance of a woman getting 30% less for the same work, or is there just the bogus stat to repeat endlessly?

Why are only men expected to competently negotiate a salary? We have no idea what we’re doing either.

If you could actually pay women 30% less for the same work, men would never be able to find employment.

Random Thoughts: Misogyny, Simpsons, and Partying

Monday, August 25, 2014 9:17 am

Richard Dawkins doesn’t want children to grow up to lead sad, miserable lives, but how would you know if a child would grow up to be him?

There’s a lot of racism you can get away with if you make it clear you’re for higher taxes and more government.

To help end misogyny, have women tried being nicer?

See, the joke itself makes a misogynistic assumption. If I have to explain the joke, that means it’s very intellectual and thus good.

Can’t believe I had to mansplain my misogyny joke.

All of America’s enemies getting together for a golf tournament would be a great end to the President Obama movie.

The Obama presidency is stupid, but I like to think of it as a uniquely American kind of stupid I can still take pride in.

One of these days I need to sit you all down and have a long chat on how awesome I am because I still think you don’t quite understand.

We all hate millennials, but we still have to work on making them productive so they can eventually pay for our entitlements.

I should be subjecting my children to the Simpsons marathon, but I don’t have cable.

So it’s a 12-day Simpsons marathon — that’s how many good days?

Really, the first ten or so season of The Simpsons have to be the single biggest influence on my sense of humor.

I remember having long conversations with friends that was nothing but quoting lines from The Simpsons.

One of these days I should do my top 100 Simpsons lines/moments, though it would be hard to cut down to that few.

The Simpsons gave me ten good seasons, and I continued to watch them for about ten seasons more.

Last late episode I remember really liking was the book heist one that had Neil Gaiman as a guest voice. Great end joke.

I remember the last season I watched being pretty decent, but it was like “Classic Itchy & Scratchy! … What else is on?”

Understanding ISIS is best left to anthropologists who dig up their bones a thousand years from now.

I hope they finally have Mr. T do a cameo on Doctor Who. “I pity the Who!”

The new game from the Flappy Bird creator is about a hundred times harder.

Swing Copters would be insanely hard without the swinging hammers. With them, it’s just ridiculous.

You can basically name any episode from the first ten seasons of The Simpsons and I can come up with a few funny lines from it.

Did they change the actor for who plays the main character in Doctor Who? Do they think they can do that and we won’t notice?

I remember when we had presidents who respected us enough to pretend to care.

Okay, I’ll finally ask: How does one “party”? Do you dance to loud music? What are the mechanics of it?

I haven’t followed music in a while. Who is the popular new band now? Beck?

Autotune was made to help ease us into all music being computer generated.

If you actually remember when MTV mainly just played music videos, then you’re way too old to be watching MTV.

Presidenting Is Hard

Saturday, August 23, 2014 10:57 am

In my new PJ Media column, I defend President Obama for all the vacations he takes.

In a way, his lack of concern about Ferguson should help with race relations, as we now know that a black president can care just as little about black people as a white president would. It’s probably a different kind of apathy, as Obama better understands what black people are going through, having experienced racism himself, but at least he is ignoring everyone equally.

So how many bicyclists are people who can’t afford cars and how many are just sociopaths?

Random Thoughts: Isolationism, Unarmed People, and Dawkins

Thursday, August 21, 2014 9:02 am

American presidents are at their Americaniest when confronting evil.

The U.S. is really isolationist until we decide there are bastards in need of killin’, which is constantly.

If you want America to be less involved, the rest of the world needs to stop being a bunch of bastards we need to kill.

I still don’t understand the ice bucket thing.

People with guns, stop shooting unarmed people. Unarmed people, stop trying to beat up people with guns.

One day scientists need to determine how we can explain to a dog that a doorbell renders their barking completely unnecessary.

A completely logical universe would be absolute nothingness. Instead we got this weirdness.

Instead of shooting to kill, why don’t cops just roundhouse kick people like Walker Texas Ranger?

A good example of a purely logical being would be a computer not running any programs.

So the idea behind Richard Dawkins is that it’s very appealing to hear about how flawed religion is from a complete sociopath?

Random Thoughts: Free Speech and Mugshots

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 9:15 am

We still have free speech in this country. You just might have to speak while a guy in body armor points a rifle at you. For your safety.

For all we white people knew, black people were perfectly happy. In their neighborhood over there. The one we avoid.

What is the practical need for the mugshot? Are they afraid they’ll grab the wrong guy, thinking he’s the governor?

Random Thoughts: Marijuana, Stalin, and NYTimes

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 9:18 am

Apparently the galleys went out for my new book. Not sure to whom. If you have one, you are of the lucky few.

I’ve never smoked marijuana, but I once smelled some at a Dave Matthews concert and then immediately I wanted to punch a cop.

Is the pope using his infallibility when he says, “Kill the bastards!”?

Maybe we could solve things if we are all just angrier about how we’re sure we’re right.

As Josef Stalin said, “The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a hashtag.”

Josef Stalin never actually said anything like that death of millions quote often attributed to him. STOP SLANDERING JOSEF STALIN!

Wow, you can almost feel how painful it is for them to overcome their partisanship to have a modicum of integrity.

I’m guessing first draft ended with “Even so, he’s an icky Republican and we don’t like him. Ew.”

I’m writing a column. I haven’t done one in a while, which isn’t fair to all of you.

You all deserve to have my opinions. And I deserve to be paid for them.

Random Thoughts: Ferguson, Rick Perry, and Magneto

Monday, August 18, 2014 9:20 am

I follow A LOT of conservatives. How am I missing all the angry racists who like black kids being shot?

It’s actually pretty scary how a hateful, racist right-winger lives in every left-winger’s head.

Maybe there’s a reason the Ferguson police department waited so long to put out information, but it doesn’t seem like that was very helpful.

There are two witnesses saying Michael Brown had his hands up while being shot. That he’s a robbery suspect doesn’t put an end to this.

And even if it ends up being a textbook shooting, there are now other issues at play here with the police response afterward.

Why are libertarians silent on how big government is?

Why aren’t vegans saying anything about how they are vegans?

Why won’t Al Sharpton ever bring up the issue of race?

Why has John Kerry never mentioned he served in Vietnam?

Why don’t the Democrats ever bring up the Koch brothers?

Why is Hamas never saying anything about Israel?

If you think science is an alternative to religion, you’re pretty ignorant about the scope of either.

I could never be a spy because I have an allergy to cyanide tablets.

You can indict politicians for abuse of power? Why aren’t they all in prison?

I mean, I do assume Perry is a crook. He is a politician.

This Perry indictment/crazed, drunken DA thing is a wee bit wacky.

So are Rob Ford and Lehmberg single? Because I have a crazy idea…

Dems hate Rick Perry because he’s a Republican governor of a state with high job growth. Everything else is justification after the fact

The left hate whoever’s a threat to their political power. Charges of racism, etc are just things they come up with after hate already there.

The left lack an ideology insofar they’re simply mired in silly tribalism.

All partisans are like that, but prominent with the left since they’ve been so defensive with a Dem in the presidency.

If Magneto’s power was magnetism, he could make metal fly to or away from him. What he has is magical metal controlling powers.

If you don’t #StandWithRickPerry, it’s probably because you’re falling down drunk.

I remain optimistic that white/black, left/right we can find a way to move forward together. It’s not really America without all of us.

Watching an old Dr. Who where the Doctor ends up in a parallel universe where all the doppelgängers lack facial hair.

I’m not comfortable with the police having as much firepower as I do.

People of all races need to learn to work together to preserve the patriarchy.

Thinking earplugs are rubber bullets is a mistake any excitable four-year-old could make.

The knockout game does sound like something racists made up. Is it a real thing?

Shakespeare is crap. No one actually talks like that.

I don’t care what horrible things white people have done in the past; it’s asking too much to expect them to take Al Sharpton seriously.
