The NRA are Russias Hired Guns

Since the inception of this blog I have referred to the NRA as a Russian Front. I have called Putin the ‘actual leader’ of the NRA and I have pointed out that their rhetoric is Anti-American. Yesterday I got a whole lot of backup on that in the form of Maria Butina, a Russian spy… Continue reading The NRA are Russias Hired Guns

A series of abstract depictions of the cosmos from science fiction films. Exploring fantasy, hypotheses and ways in which culture effects and reacts to representations of Space.

In general the movies are trending down. I have a few theories about exactly why this is happening. UPDATE –… Continue reading Why Star Wars Movies Keep Getting Worse

They Couldnt Save the Solo Movie

After 41 years of waiting we have our Han Solo movie. The special Edition release of Attack of the Clones is about as good. It’s not as good as Revenge of the Sith.

Who IS Colion Noir of the NRA?

Recent weeks have seen the emergence of a new toxic NRA talking head calling himself Colion Noir. Like all NRA spokespeople he never misses a chance to undermine faith in the police and puff about armed citizenry being the only REAL law enforcement.

How to Get Crucified and Live

How would a homicide detective working in Jerusalem in 33 AD have approached the case of Jesus of Nazareth, criminal who came back from the dead? For starters he wouldn’t believe that he came back from the dead. He’d accept death as absolutely final and really just not the kind of thing you come back… Continue reading How to Get Crucified and Live

OJ Simpson Is Guilty AND Framed

  Last night on FOX and today on CNN OJ Simpson will confirm what we all know; He’s guilty. He was also framed. It explains everything.

Why I Hate Sarah Huckabee Sanders (and hope she goes to jail)

Like everyone else I’ve just had it with lying White Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the (at best) semi-weekly assault on civility and reality that are her White House Press Conferences. The Terrible Reason She’s Out There in the First Place I admit it, I feel like Trump sends her out there for a… Continue reading Why I Hate Sarah Huckabee Sanders (and hope she goes to jail)

Who is Dana Loesch ?

UPDATED – 8-25-19 As the NRA is in something of a freefall we might just have heard the last of Dana Loesch. NRA TV is gone and the organization is sort of imploding under financial strain.

Can Trump Read?

Months ago there was a buzz over President Trump’s apparent inability to actually read.

The Strange Tale of the Mobsters who were also Dirty NYPD Cops

The most frightening thing about the Mafia Cops is that or a cuty to function a small group of individuals must be trusted as beyond reapproach to investigate crimes. Among this select group stand a few who betrayed the city’s trust. And standing apart amongst the very worst in New York City history, including the most corrupt even as far back as the goons from the early Dutch Government’s corrupt officials and maybe even the least honorable of the Lenape would be the Mafia Cops. At some point watching the watchers becomes impossible, these Vampires of Public Trust Knew and Exploited this. They’re a chilling cautionary tale.

The Man in the Monitor : My Relationship with Social Media

  I think my relationship with Social Media is an Extension, not a Replacement for Who I am.

As a 20th century vintage human I recall the world before… Continue reading The Man in the Monitor : My Relationship with Social Media

We have likely entered a time Historians will call the Second Cold War or Cold War 2. –Vladimir Putin, who has social engineered the Russian Federation to a standard of living where the average citizen has just over 400 bucks a month to play with, is surely laughing at the unmitigated success of ‘Operation Fuck Up America’.

A Black Sabbath Fans Open Letter to Donald Trump

[ [Update- This obviously went Unheeded] Dear President-elect Trump; I was in no way surprised to find out that you were a fan of Black Sabbath.
