American Moloch. Image via. First, of all read this. I own a handgun. It's a simple Ruger P95 9x19mm pistol. I bought it years and years ago when I lived in a terrible, terrible apartment in a shitty, crime-ridden neighborhood.... Continue reading

Someone please make sure that Questlove wins the Grammy for entertainer of the year. Seriously. He's so awesome. Okay, I don't really give a rat's ass about Xmas, and I can't stand being around children, but even I thought this... Continue reading

Yep. Power in a union. Remember--this happened. And that energy, and that power, is still out there. We've had some wins lately, and a lot more losses, but the people are still there, and will always, when push comes to... Continue reading

This picture has nothing to do with the post. It just cracks me up. I'm no political strategist, but telling people that they're too stupid to understand why their lazy, mooching, female, "urban," or entitled asses should vote for the... Continue reading

A re-post from a couple of years ago that I hope, some day, never needs to be said again. Nope. No freedom being defended here. So it's Veterans Day, which means that the US is awash with mostly obligatory tributes... Continue reading

Behold, the Internet! Okay, so maybe I'm doing this bit too often, but it's just comedy gold. Once again, a cousin posted something stupid, and I did this idiotic thing called "responding with facts." Naturally, things only got better from... Continue reading

Apparently, this is George Clinton's DNA; I don't think you or I are funky enough to have major AND a minor groove in all of our cell nuclei. Via. In my ongoing quest to get disinvited from all future family... Continue reading

Ah. Vesta. You'll do nicely. Via. Hey there, good people. I know it's been a while since I've been by here, but, you know, life keeps us busy. Until we get a sick day! Then it's time to catch up... Continue reading

Never. Ever. As part of my job, I talked to a young man today who had recently been fired. He is 26 years old. We sent him to Iraq when he was 19 years old. Yes, "we." You and I.... Continue reading

This is a 100-round magazine for 5.56 x 45 mm ammunition. You do not need that. No one outside of an infantry engagement needs that. That is all.* *Cue gun fetishists telling me that I don't know what I'm talking... Continue reading
