Regret that my 2016 Election Primal Scream Therapy has curtailed my blogging to the point of non-existence. Keep in mind that it’s all fun and games until junk gets real, states secede and armies march.

    S’up, bitches?

    I banned myself from twitter this week.

    High five, K-Bob. You SJW-attacked yourself.

    Cripes, pretty scary when you put it that way.

    Gee Smitty, what a Debbie-downer you are.

    Plus, you use the word “secede” and the phrase “armies march” like they’re bad things.

    I should feel better about it though. Thankfully the SJW cause includes legalizing them durgs.

    We could have done much much worse. It could have been Jeb or Christie or Rubio vs Hillary.

    I would have been happier with Christie, and orders of magnitude happier with Rubio.

    Couldn’t vote for Christie under any circumstances, would have been agonizing having to pull the lever for open borders Rubio.

    I’m not arguing enthusiasm, but c’mon: either of them is better than these two sociopaths atop the major party ticket(s).

    A cardboard cut out of Roger Rabbit would be better than Hillary but
    I see no reason to believe Christie would be better than Trump. No reason to believe Jeb, Kasich, or any of the other also rans other than Cruz and perhaps Carson would be preferable to Trump. I’d vote for Stalin before I’d vote for Hillary or Christie or Bush. I’d probably have voted for Rubio but see no evidence that he’d have been a better choice than Trump. I determined I wouldn’t vote, under any circumstances for any of the big government squishes the moment I heard they were running. Christie or Jeb are not any better than Hillary and are therefore worse than Trump. Hell I’d vote for Bernie over Christie or Bush. Might as well have an honest Socialist if we’er doomed to to choosing between a big government Republican or an admitted socialist. We need someone Who’ll shake things up. Susan Sarandon said that if Trump was elected the left would revolt. I hope he’s elected and I hope she’s right. Might as well get this shindig started.

    You’re just now discovering this? Of course the Patriarchy invented the alphabet and has proceeded to use it to oppress women. That’s why Smitty and RSM use it. They are patriarchs!

    Summer cloud giants
    Try to blow down stone wall
    But Men are stronger

    Waxless howled fierce
    Rich cheats; faithless few screamed
    Mountain bakes; still strong

    Lapdogs of Tyrants
    False claim summer’s liberty
    Know winter’s virtue?
