Random Thoughts: Bush, Mickey, and Vox

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 9:00 am

Know how some movies were never that great in the first place but get endless straight to DVD sequels anyway? That’s the Bush dynasty.

Since I can coherently defend my viewpoints, I’m not scared of people expressing an opinion that’s the opposite of what I believe.

Kids, you do whatever you set your heart to, but considering what it is, you might first need to defeat Batman before he can foil your plans.

I always got the names Mickey Rooney and Mickey Rourke confused. Don’t know why. I guess… I’m just not that bright.

Anyway, very confused by the news thinking Mickey Rourke died at age 86. As bad as Rourke looks, he looks good for an 86 year old.

Can’t we put Harry Reid in a nursing home? One with fun activities to keep him busy?

So did the Koch brothers make the Democrats’ policies from the last 6 years complete failures, or did the Democrats do that themselves?

The Republicans should all wear “Sponsored by Kochs.” And everyone who voted for Obamacare should wear dunce caps.

So Harry Reid’s 2014 strategy is relying on hatred of deceased NYC mayor Ed Koch?

“Hello. I like freedom, guns, and keeping my money; which political party should I vote for? No, I meant one that has a chance of winning.”

In my perfect world, we’d have no social programs and open borders. And thunderdomes.

I’m constantly boycotting products for having such poor advertising that I’ve never heard of them.

Maybe HBO should make the Game of Thrones seasons come out every five to six years to give George R.R. Martin time to catch up.

I wish there was a website that would explain Vox to me.

Where’s the Vox article explaining Pharrell’s hat?

Doesn’t making birth control an entitlement work against us in the future being able to pay for all the other entitlements?

I have a great solution to the gender pay gap: Men, stop telling women your salaries.

Want to ban the word “equal” from politics. Often it’s about making an apple and an orange “equal” and acting like there’s a simple answer.

Never once in my life have I encountered a videogame so good I would pay $60 for it and then another $15 a month to actually play it.

America has been in a decade long slump and we’re talking Bush and Clinton? We’re just completely out of new ideas, huh?

How politicians can solve employment problem:
1. All politicians go into big, closed-room session.
2. They never come out.

An annoying thing about living in Westeros is that seems like half the available career paths require you to be unmarried and celibate.

I got thrown out of the farmer’s market because I kept dropping fat beets.

Just so you know, friend of IMAO Sarah Hoyt has a new book out, and this time she’s going indie.

I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but going by her Darkship series, it’s probably good.

Random Thoughts: G.I. Joe, Big Government, and Letterman

Monday, April 7, 2014 9:00 am

The Community last week is definitely must see if you grew up watching the GI Joe cartoons.

I thought it was going to be homage to GI Joe; didn’t realize they worked with Hasbro to put in all the actual GI Joe characters.

Here’s the opening from the GI Joe Community.

If you’re going to have a big government, it’s going to end up in every aspect of your life. That’s the nature of the beast.

It’s not about civil rights. It’s about controlling people.

These unmutable Noah ads have to be against something in the Bible.

The great thing about the gay marriage debate is that you get to be hateful bigot no matter what side you’re on.

I think it’s past time for the first robot late night host. #LettermanReplacement

Whatever happened to color bars coming on screen at a certain hour? Bring about test patterns! #LettermanReplacement

Lots of weird things in Dr. Who, but was this episode where everyone in UK was certain Obama was going to end the recession with a speech.

When you have a self-propelled mower and the self-propelled part breaks down, it just becomes a really hard to push mower.

How Democrats Can Win Running on Obamacare

Friday, April 4, 2014 11:30 am

Hey, it’s been a while, but I have a new column at PJ Media explaining how Obamacare can be a winning issue for Democrats in the midterms.

You may point out that Obamacare is hugely unpopular, to which I say, “Exactly!” And you may also note how it’s so flawed that it’s constantly being delayed, which is precisely my point.

Read. Enjoy. Discuss.

So, do you think Obama can effectively rule America through fear?

Random Thoughts: Gay Marriage Bullies and Mr. Rogers

Friday, April 4, 2014 9:00 am

It’s really hard to fat-shame cats, but I’ll never stop trying.

The other late night hosts should all pull pranks on old man Letterman.

So in the time of Noah, everyone died from the rain? Not one person had an umbrella?

The biggest thing holding minorities back is not bringing up white privilege enough.

So are the bigots the ones trying to bully certain opinions out of the public arena or the other ones?

Where did the religious nuts come up with the man/woman combination for marriage anyway?

If you have a rational, coherent argument for gay marriage, then you don’t need to bully and silence everyone who disagrees.

Problem is with gay marriage, is it’s been mainly an emotional argument — successful, but more emotional than rational.

Part of that is there is nothing really rational about marriage. It is a religious ceremony at its heart.

It all seems less and less about civil right and more about being able to punish people who disagree.

There little respect for the spirit of free speech. We should value dissenting opinions, not crush them.

If you think there’s no argument for the concept of marriage that’s been the norm for thousands of years, you have a small mind.

You can disagree with the concept of traditional marriage, but to act like there is no argument for it is pure idiocy.

Problem with self-driving cars is that when two of them stop next to each other at a stoplight, their algorithms end up in a race condition.

Repeatedly told my daughter today not to be bossy. I banned her being bossy.

Found out that Amazon Prime has Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, so goodbye all you new children’s show crap.

She actually really likes Mr. Rogers. Says it reminds her of Daniel Tiger :(

How do I explain to her that compared to Mr. Rogers, Daniel Tiger is but the shadows on the cave wall?

Random Thoughts: Koch Brothers, Stinkburger, and Arming the Military

Thursday, April 3, 2014 9:00 am

Why are people against the Koch brothers? Can’t the Koch brothers just spend more money and change those opinions?

Now that Chick-fil-A has become the number one fast food chicken restaurant, Hardee’s is unveiling the “Traditional Marriage Burger.”

Never got why people are so mad at the people donating lots of money rather than the idiots who are influenced by 30 second ads.

Since the Bell Curve said Asians have the highest natural intelligence, doesn’t that make Charles Murray an Asian Nationalist?

Don’t like money in politics. Don’t like power in politics. I like politics to be a stupid little sideshow I don’t need to pay attention to.

“Your mom’s a stinkburger.” -appropriate GOP response

The more money you have, the more speech you can have. And hamburgers.

So what are the limits on much money the NYTimes can spend on promoting Democrats?

And why again is everyone unarmed on a military base?

So what were the security changes at Ft. Hood since the last shooting?

Wish we had more honest debate where people actually spoke against freedom – not pretending to like it while being frivolous with government force.

Random Thoughts: April 1st, War on Science, and British Pronunciations

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 9:00 am

April 1st is a great day for Obama to announce that Obamacare has met all its goals.

Make everyday April Fools Day in that you look at everything on the internet with extreme skepticism.

“Is that funny?” -common question from my 3yo daughter. At what age do I teach her how to read her audience?

I hope my employer never realizes that minimum wage is much much lower than what they pay me.

“That was legend…” *wait 9 years for it* “…sucky.” #HIMYM

Stop taking the president’s speech so seriously; check the date.

I thought I lost the plan I liked and am paying more, but apparently everything is going great and I’m confused,

Think of all the good government can do simply with threats of fines and imprisonment.

How do you even know when you win a War On Science? Do magic and dragons come back?

So I’m a little confused: We were only 7 million away from universal health care coverage?

So did we ever find out what WWI was about? I guess it’s in a history book somewhere. Anyone find that book and read it?

How I Met the Footnote

What I’ve learned from Doctor Who is that the British pronounce really random words oddly.

Most random so far — patent is pronounced pay-tent.

And going from how they pronounce “schedule,” school isn’t pronounced “shul” is it?

Random Thoughts: Truth to Power, OWS, and How I Met Your Mother

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 9:00 am

Who’s Ronan Farrow?

Speak truth to power! Speak lies to weakness! Speak platitudes to the mediocre!

But have people who are predicting the GOP will win the Senate this year factored in the transformative effect of Occupy Wall Street?

So, with How I Met Your Mother, basically the actors who played the kids knew the ending for eight years.

That was a very ambitious attempt, How I Met Your Mother, but nothing can be as bad as the Lost finale.

Random Thoughts: Colbert, Writing Tips, and Vulgarity

Monday, March 31, 2014 9:00 am

We’re surrounded by miraculous things, but rare is the person who get to see them for what they truly are.

The reason you see such joy in small children is they see the world for what it truly is, with no preconceived notions.

Since no one asked me, I don’t really find Colbert funny, but I don’t care about this controversy either.

My main tip on being a good writer is to somehow come into possession of skills you were born lacking. Like consume a soul or something.

This leads to a number of obvious jokes, but I can’t print any I came up with because they all involve vulgarity.

Yes, I don’t speak vulgarity, but I think them constantly. I’m a raging cuss storm inside.

Random Thoughts: Obamacare, Leland Yee, and Racism

Friday, March 28, 2014 9:00 am

How many regenerations does James Bond have left?

Are we making fun of the North Korean haircut thing or are we noting that the Obamacare precedent makes that possible here?

But what if someone who goes on a shooting spree decided not to obey the gun magazine size limits?

Its cheaper to drop health insurance entirely than to provide it sans coverage of 4 abortifacients. That will lead to lots of great outcomes.

I am excited for the next Community episode; not on until next week, though.

“According to this chart, there’s a 78% chance you’re a doodie-head.” -young Nate Silver

Wait, what are the age of these mutant ninja turtles?

How pervasive is the view that black people can’t be racist? It’s beyond idiotic, but I’ve seen it many times.

I guess “ironic” would be the best description of that view.

I imagine a world one day where all idiotic racists, regardless of their skin color, will be shamed away from polite society.

My 10mo old son sure reacts to being suddenly picked up much more calmly than I do.

Pitching a wacky, gun-running buddy flick starring Eric Holder and Leland Yee.

In this information age with drone warfare, knowing is actually now 62% of the battle.

Leland Yee has made a lot of news, but how many vocal gun control advocates are actually gun smugglers? Probably no more than a quarter.

Random Thoughts: Nate Silver, Farmers, and Jaws

Thursday, March 27, 2014 9:00 am

Was wondering if Nate Silver was developing some hubris leading to a face-plant, but I’ve really liked most of what I’ve seen of 538 so far.

New horror movie pitch: Murder Zoo

Was out of cone filters for the coffee maker, so I shaped a paper towel into a cone and used that instead. I’m basically MacGyver.

Stupid farmers. Why can’t they provide something of use to society like lawyers?

I’m afraid that like with Skynet, when President Obama becomes self-aware he’ll freak out and start nuking everyone.

Maybe now the Democrats will run someone in Florida who hates seniors and someone in California who hates putting avocado on everything.

Alias’s rejected boyfriend might be Indiana Jones? Don’t know if that’s Ben Affleck as Batman bad, but still…

When people say not to worry about the national debt, they remind me of that mayor from Jaws.

So far I’ve thought the new 538 site has been pretty good, but that’s just commentary and I don’t have any statistics to bad that up.

Admittedly, Nate Silver does need a bit more rigorous data study to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Paul Krugman is a giant hack. Still, this is a fun article.
