jesus suffering fuck, this guy, I declare

PHRASE OF THE DAY: Іди на хуй. Go fuck yourself. I F*ng love this.

I’m sitting here this morning, minding my own business, right? Drinking my coffee and noshing on some sort of unpronounceable chocolate cookie I bought at the Grand European Market (yes, that’s actually its name), reading the news, getting pestered by the cat, just like every morning. Then I come across this bullshit:

This shouldn’t surprise me. I mean, Comrade Trump–he’s an ignorant, lying sack of shit. Ain’t nobody surprised by that. And that bit about NATO dues? That’s probably just an example of his ignorance. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Trump actually believes NATO nations pay ‘dues’. Like it’s a membership at one of his golf clubs. We’re probably lucky he’s not complaining about NATO not paying green fees.

But “There would be no NATO if I didn’t act strongly and swiftly“? Fuck me with a chainsaw. This is the guy who wanted to withdraw…

A Childhood is not Reversible

Aunt Polly isn’t ranting but she has something to say & something for you to read this morning.

aunt polly's rants

A Great post from Transgender Trend, refuting the common trope that transing children is easily “reversible” (I’ve noticed that this is often put forth by people who don’t have children).

Children believe what they are told & what they see. What we experience in our childhood will affect us for the rest of our lives.

This is why the transing of children is the front line of the trans “war” right now.

No parent wants to think that they are abusing their child but they are definitely fucking up their child’s life & there’s no argument with that. They’re just doing it in a different way than parents did in the past.

We know that history matters

truth

Peedeel's Blog

The biggest challenge facing the great teachers and communicators of history is not to teach history itself, nor even the lessons of history, but why history matters. How to ignite the first spark of the will o’the wisp, the Jack o’lantern, the ignis fatuus [foolish fire] beloved of poets, which lights up one source of history and then another, zigzagging across the marsh, connecting and linking and writing bright words across the dark face of the present. There’s no phrase I can come up that will encapsulate in a winning sound-bite why history matters. We know that history matters, we know that it is thrilling, absorbing, fascinating, delightful and infuriating, that it is life. Yet I can’t help wondering if it’s a bit like being a Wagnerite; you just have to get used to the fact that some people are never going to listen.

Saturday Caturday

It’s another sleepy Saturday here. I’m not sure where Bobby is, probably underneath the loveseat, by the heat vent where it’s warm. Radar is here on the chair next to my desk.

Mysticism is awe. And I think any human being who’s lost awe is really a lost person. A civilization that’s lost awe, an educational system that can’t teach awe and nurture it, a worship system that is devoid of awe because it is so full of human verbosity, is perverse. These systems are doing the opposite of what we have to do, which is to awaken the heart.

Mysticism is about heart-knowledge, heart-experience. It’s a wonderful balance, a marriage between the left brain and the right. A brain researcher told me his twenty-one years of work on the right brain showed that our right brain is all about awe. So let’s put our awe together with knowledge, and we’re going to get some wisdom. Currently we’re running entirely on knowledge, and that’s why we’re running out of energy, money, time, land, beauty.

The Spartan Atheist

There are two things that average United States Christians have never read and don’t understand: The Bible, and the US Constitution.

How do I know this? Because the FUCKING BOOKS ARE PUBLIC AND WE CAN READ THEM.

That’s pretty much the mike drop on this article. Read either, and compare to what people say about them. Night and day. But I have some time so let’s elucidate.

Maybe I’m old, but back when I was in school, (elementary all the way through my Master’s degree) reading comprehension was kind of a deal. If I read a sentence that says “Joe was sad his pickup was destroyed by a fire”, it is wrong to then say “Joe was happy his pickup miraculously popped into existence perfectly and was awesome.” I’m literally saying the opposite of the previous sentence. There is no excuse for being this wrong. Unless you have faith, I…

Why Ukraine matters

A must-read. Especially for the people who don’t know anything about Ukraine or Russian politics/history & never cared until now.

Stephen Liddell

I’m frequently staggered though not surprised as just how inept, short-sighted and self-serving the politicians of this world seem to be. 20 years after Putin destroyed Chechnya whose only crime was to be resource rich and not want to be ruled from Moscow any more; 14 years after Putin invaded the sovereign nation of Georgia and whilst continually trying to support dictators across the world and threaten peaceful neighbours close to home, even having soldiers in nations such as Moldova and yet the great and the good seem either to not have thought Putin to be a tyrant or at least they didn’t care about his victims enough to stand up to him.

It all started with idiot George W. Bush and continues up to modern day eccentric Napoleon Macron, with a whole lot of people in between.

I think it can all be best summarised by the great man…
