Violence ensues

No, I didn't kill anyone, in case you were wondering. I've been away for some time due to health issues and being so involved in the Goth scene that I neglected many things. Seeing as how a post like the following would be seen as "Drama" on Facebook, I am going to put it here.
I was at an afterparty at a friends house, when some goth I've never trusted for some reason, starts interacting with me. Everything's going well, when he twitches his head. He said he had a twitch, and that was all. So I said in my mad scientist voice: The medications are not working properly.
His face goes blank for about 1.5 seconds, then he slaps me, hard. I do not react to this well, needless to say. He apologized, if you can call it that (even then he felt justified and it took him 10 minutes). But all night he was trying so hard to get laid that he kept trying to get me to leave. I was almost literally rushed out the door from a place that didn't belong to him.
So... if you ever try to hit me again...there WILL be consequences ! Because you're a arrogant, self-centered prick, who thinks he can tell me what to do. NOBODY tells me what to do, least of all you. Oh, and expect me to cock-block you every chance I get, asshole.

People Are Strange

Recently I made a post on Facebook that drew criticism from some individuals. My cat had just been taken to the Vet and besides a surgical procedure, there was the possibility that he had a broken rear leg. And so I made the mistake of voicing my doubts as to caring for my cat, should he be in that condition.
Big mistake. Now the mistake was not mine, it was the usual dolts that are hard-asses. This brings me to the salient point of this rant about the "freedom" of the internet.
Someone said they had all these unnamed problems and implied they were worse off then me. That I should sacrifice my bad sleep and "indulgent" habits to care for my cat. This pissed me off to no small end. Because... the rules of the internet are as follows: If I make a remark that casts doubts on my abilities, then I'm labeled as a "incessant complainer" that nobody likes.
On the other hand, if I explained the reasons for my doubts (health problems and the like; giving details), then I am labeled a "Drama Queen" or perhaps a player of the My-Problems-Are-Bigger-Then-Yours game. THAT is a trap ! I have no stomach or tolerance for such bullshit games. If you are of the mind that YOUR insomnia is real as you had to be hospitalized for it, and mine is (to put it bluntly) not "real," due to merely suffering at home, you are in need of a kick in the ass.
It's a lot like saying you're more sick because you have cancer, whereas another person is not as sick because they only have missing limbs, then you're obtuse. Wait... perhaps that word is not simple enough for some. Let me rephrase it: You are (pick one): Stupid, dumb, lacking in empathy, and most likely have a stone for a heart and a head full of sand.
People's problems are individual and each one of us react to the same situation differently. Some people are told they have cancer and decide to fight like hell. Others might choose to get depressed and jump off a cliff. Both responses are valid.
Your way of thinking is not the only way, nor is it the RIGHT way. We're different, we're emotional.
Deal with it. You deal with it in your own way and I'll deal with it in mine. And if I come across as overly angry, it's only because I feel I've been judged overly harsh.

The Ass-Clowns of Gaming

Well friends, I just spent the better part of a week coming up with an elaborate character for D&D. At the end of the night the players had a meeting and said they had too many gamers, and I had to go. This would be fine, if it was valid. The one new player they decided to keep was a girlfriend that just wanted to "see what gaming was about." She sat there through the session, not saying anything and just rolling dice when they told her to.
Apparently, despite an email from one of the members telling me that they wanted ME to help them roleplay, I was "Let Go" for acting too much in character. This is what happens when you are recruited by a bunch of cock-twiddling ass monkeys that are Power Gamers. I role-played my ASS OFF, and nobody even tried to play their character.
This needs to be said to all gamers: If all you're interested in is XP, nonstop action, and not immersing yourself in character and ACTING, then don't call me up ! You could be replaced with dice-rolling robots and nobody would notice a difference. And in case you need an explanation, it is ROLE Playing, not ROLL (the dice) playing. Keep your cat people, half-orcs, gremlins, and blood thirsty elves out of my sight, lest I kill your sorry asses and have you made into Soylent Green.
I'm going to the roleplaying board and posting my requirements for games. If that means I never game again because the hobby is dominated by lumps of unimaginative dolts, then so be it.

An addendum: Two of the players said my roleplaying was really good. The same can't be said of theirs.
If you were there as a witness, your eyes would have bled.

Drug testing for Welfare equals DUMB

Anyone suggesting that Welfare recipients should be tested for illegal drugs before getting money should be hung. Just because YOU don't have the balls to stand up to your civil rights being violated, doesn't mean MORE injustice is the solution. "But it's MY money," you complain. Your money also goes to bomb civilians in other countries as well as hiring more agents to go through your computer at the airport. It goes to a stupid drug war that has cost us some 140 Billion from 1991- 2000. So it’s fair to say by now that it’s somewhere about 250 Billion now. "Your" money goes to maintaining that uncaring entity known as the Status Quo, that does noting except keep us oppressed. The government takes the money and does what it wants in every case, except Welfare. So in my not-so-humble opinon, all of you are swigging from the bottle of Sour Grapes Wine and want us to taste it. Thanks, but we’ll pass. Now, your rights are being murdered every day, but you prefer to just bend over and let the powers that be slide it’s dick up your ass. And the worst thing is that you let them ! Plus, they’re not going to call you in the morning and thank you for a great time. Face the fact that it’s not thegovernments business WHAT you did while you were off the clock. Keep in mind that they don’t test for legal drugs, and I know of many people that went to their jobs still drunk or on painkillers. The most dangerous drug is alcohol, which , if you ask any organic chemist, gets you high by killing off brain cells. Now although this would go a long way toward explaining the country leaning to the Right, I put it down to the lazy attitude that one can’t fight City Hall. If you believe that, you’re not much use except as mulch in the cemetery of free thought. Hypocrisy thy name is Average Joe. The remedy to all of this is to wake up, stand up, and demand freedom. And if you don’t care for this little rant, I suggest that you all commit an impossible act on yourself.

The Longest Rant EVAH...

I apologize for all redundancies, as when I froth at the mouth I repeat myself. Mea Culpa.

Before I am accused of pandering to that horrible faction known as Liberals, let me just say that those of you that embrace the new Republicans as the end all be all of politics have a empty skull where your brain should reside. On the other hand, my mind works perfectly fine and examines all the miniutae before coming to the correct decision. Or certainly a better decision than you, with the cavernous echo chamber that you call a skull. Now in case you’re obtuse and cannot divine my meaning because my words are too big for you, let me explain: You should all be killed like baby harp seals, using large clubs on your slope-headed skulls.

I’m angry as hell, because after eight years of the worst government we’ve seen that was run by Bush 1 and 2, you have declared that Obama has ruined the country in 16 months. Bullshit ! In case you’ve forgotten or are just in denial, let me tell you what Republican leadership has done for this country. Please feel free to grab a snack and a drink as this will be a long screed.

The Patriot Act and it’s attendant abuses that allow the government to spy on Americans for no reason. The paving over of everything; the housing crisis and states going bankrupt; censorship of books; the attempted outlawing of abortion, while forbidding sex education, ensuring that teen pregnancies rise so we have more babies that will, in the future become dead soldiers . Want more ? The Stock Market Crash that was a direct result of your “let’s not interfere in the free market” bullshit, which is the same inane garbage being preached by the current crop of Republitards we have in Congress. You know the ones; the sore losers that can’t handle having been in power for 8 years and losing to a black Democrat. So they block Obama on every piece of legislation they can. Then they go on to say that he hasn’t accomplished much in the time he’s been president. Well, thanks to YOU, you fuckers !

As long as I’m ranting I think I’ve found a way to solve the energy crisis: We just burn Republicans and their attendant backers for fuel. The moonbat Right, which sees everyone not wearing tinfoil hats as their enemy, is hellbent on restoring this nation to it’s proper roll. What this means is that we should push Christianity, heterosexuality, abstienence education, and using up our resources as quickly as possible. Let me put the above statement in plain English for you: We’d like an oppressive theocracy that kills people for not following it, leaving a dead planet behind for all the kids that were born due to disallowing abortion. Brilliant ! We’re fucking patriots and should be on Mount Rushmore (soon to be named Mount Rush Limbaugh).

And I say they should be on Mount Rushmore, but hanging from thousands of ropes around their genitals. Because truth be told, you people of the Right are bugfuck crazy. You keep clinging to the same principles and ideas that don’t work worth a damn. Plus you claim they work, making you a genuine worker for the Ministry of Truth. Welcome to 1984 and newspeak. And I hate all of you fuckers and wish you were all dead ! Because you ought to be killed without mercy in the swiftest way possible. Only then can we actually have a government by the people.
Oh, and we should kill all the stock market bozos as well.

Greetings from the outer rim of the world as we know it, otherwise known as Minnesota. I malign this state a great deal, to the puzzlement of many and the hatred of a few. One would think I was accusing the Pope of molesting children with a cruxifix the way my fellow citizens redden in the face with anger. My statements are just that, mine. Mine to make and yours to do with as you will, but like it or not, I’m certainly not going to go away into that good night. If I did that, I’d be just like the residents who accept the daily plate of shit as the holy sacrament of faith; never asking questions; glued to their televisions as if they were moths; and otherwise of the belief that this place is peachy keen.

As you can tell, I do not share that sentiment, having to live here for 59 years. I don’t like to dwell on that too much as I could get depressed and slit my wrists. Some would take joy in my demise, while others would not notice, being of the opinion that nothing was lost in the first place. Both would be wrong. I now intend to take a slight departure from this little screed, so I can viciously attack the nutjobs of the Right known as Tea-Baggers and Fundamentalists.

I can’t stand it any further ! The constant wails coming from the Right about how our once great country has fallen low due to the election of Obama. They scream that he’s a Socialist, when he hasn’t done anything. Mostly because the Republicans in Congress being pack animals, block all his ideas. But the Right is not satisfied with that, they want total control again, as if 12 years out of the last 16 were not enough. Those that are hungry for more power at the expense of liberty are the ones that are the idiots, fools, and traitors that Jefferson would have despised. Have people forgotten about the corruption, war, graft, and other great Republican
innovations. They blew it with a stock market crash and 9-11, among other things.

And now they are wailing that we need to put God back in the classrooms and around the country as that would solve all our problems. God, what nitwits these folk are to believe that. Obviously they don’t remember that the last time we mixed politics with religious fervor we got the Inquisition. No doubt they answer with the trite, “But that would never happen here.” Forgive me for pointing out that your fine sentiment led to the atrocity that was Germany in the 30’s through the 40’s. Due to their brains being hydrocephalic, they are not bothering to read this, being of the mindset that I’m wrong. I’m not, though.

They want the “good ‘ol days” to return, when America was great. I would hazard a guess that means the Fifties. Ah yes, the Fifties, when blacks were hanged for sport; where women were kept in their proper place as brood mares and cooks; and where the white man was the image of God. The problem with this idea is that it’s full of dreck. The world you envision never existed except in your mind. Selective memory is a strange thing. The Good Old Days were not that good at all.
More likely you’ve blocked out all the bad things, but that’s just typical of the Right, whose motto ought to be: “The past is the answer to the future.” No doubt the dinosaurs, if they had intelligence and were Republicans, saw that meteor coming at them and dismissed it. “Forget it, all will be fine. Just keep the Status Quo going.”
The next thing they knew they were gone.

I’m rather hoping the same thing will happen with the Conservative Cornpones that make up the New Right. But let me explain about the tendency for them to cling to their holy grail of the Status Quo. Friends, the Status Quo is not about balance or business as usual, it’s about entropy, stagnation and death. The mindset of the Right is that change is bad. And yet... they prattle on about in the 2010 elections, they will bring us change. What fine hypocrites ! What noble thoughts they entertain in their fine homes filled with overpriced crap they don’t need. Yes, it’s your money and you can spend it how you please, but I still have the right to call ‘em as I see ‘em. You are nothing more then whiny, spoiled children that want everything for themselves and will not share. Sharing and compassion for the less fortunate are what made this country great, and you collection of old farts don’t like that. Well, tough. And don’t get me started on those Tea-baggers, who should all be shot like the vermin they are. Hey, you don’t like taxes ? Then move to Somalia, you pathetic losers !

Have you noticed that the Christian Right seems not to have read and taken to heart the Bible ? It’s amazing how they can be Pro-Life and deny women the right to their own bodies, but be for the death penalty. How these self-serving bastards who have lived in the United States their entire lives suddenly be against taxes and government. Listen up, weirdos: You knew about taxes your whole life since when you went to school and you decided to stay here, so deal with it. You could have moved to another country but chose to live here. They would scream that “America is the greatest country in the world... except for the government and the taxes, and the....” add infinitum until severe nausea grips you and you hurl in their inbred faces. Now the only, and I mean the only reason They don’t want taxes is that they’ve finally made it to where the money is no longer a problem; they have lots of it, but they want ALL OF IT. Contrary to what you may have seen in movies and our slanted cultural wasteland known as the corporate media, greed is not good. Greed turns us into selfish monsters incapable of feeling compassion, let alone love. Yet these Righties invaribly think marriage is wonderful. HOW can you be in love when compassion is beyond your feeble intellect ? Another mystery of the Universe goes unsolved on that one, kids. Don’t ask me how it’s possible for these lifeforms to exist.

In no uncertain terms, these excuses for human beings have fallen off the turnip truck, bumped their heads and are a few fries short of a Happy Meal. I’m shocked that ignorant twats like this are even allowed to vote. If you want a good idea for a law, maybe it should be some test to prove you have the mental capacity above that of a lawn chair before you are allowed to vote ! Because too many of these yipyops have some odd ideas that don’t jibe with the Constitution, thinking themselves better then our founding fathers, when they are completely ignorant. As Harlan Ellison says: “You are not entitled to your opinion, but only an informed opinion.” And as long as I’m doling out dollups of wisdom, let me tell you another that should be engraved on these morons foreheads, namely, “You are entitled to your informed opinions, but NOT your own facts.” Write that one down, kids, there will be a test later. Failure means death by being ground into hamburger and fed to the masses. And you thought that Soylent Green was just something in the movies.

At this moment I’m torn. With that massive oil slick in the gulf the size of Puerto Rico and the experts guessing that it will take 45 to 90 days to cap off, I’m thinking we’re screwed. After all, the dinosaurs ruled for a million years before having their asses capped by that meteor, so I’m thinking that it’s time for the cockroaches to have a shot. At least they wouldn’t be as stupid as politicians, pro-lifers, and the viewers of The 700 Club (which got it’s name from the combined total of the viewers IQ). So Obama can stop telling people that we’ll drill for oil off the Atlantic coast, there’s plenty of oil. Just motor out to the gulf and beyond, scoop up a barrel, and as long as you’re out there, take a look at all the dead sealife, birds, and other lifeforms.

Sleep tight America. Remember, you are free to do what we tell you. Go back to sleep America, your politicians, Righties, fundies, and the other members of the Tabula Rasa Club have everything under control. And if you hear a wailing scream, it’s only me. It’s only me being angry that you’ve killed me, too. The sad part of all this is we weren’t killed in the name of passion, which I could understand. No, we were killed in the name of greed. Ain’t we a wonderful, evolved species ?

Feeling Strange

Things have been strange of late. I go out and *try* to have fun, but fail. It's like I've forgotten how to interact with the world, and wander through it like a ghost. Or someone invisible. I know that sounds like some "Buffy" episode, but it feels real. You've all heard the line: If a tree falls in a forest and there's nobody there, does it make a noise ?
Have I fallen over ? Did I make a noise ? Somebody tell me.

Touched By An Anvil: Those Nutty Republicans.

I got this from a friend, and I must say the utter stupidity of its "logic" is staggering. Look, I don't tell you my wacky conspiracy theories, so don't expect me to share a glass of sour grape wine.
The sad thing is that I could unravel the entire argument in my sleep ! Unlike the sterile echo chamber you call a skull, my mind functions. I reproduce the mail in it's entirety for your amusement and derision. Whoever thought this email up has the IQ of a jar of olives. And now...on with the show:
*****************

This is very interesting! I never thought about it this way. Perhaps this is why so many physicians are conservatives or Republicans..

The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers Party.
Barack Obama is a lawyer.
Michelle Obama is a lawyer.
Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.
Bill Clinton is a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer.
Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.
Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate).
Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Harry Reid is a lawyer.
Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different.
President Bush is a businessman.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.... Dick Armey was an economist.
House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.
Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against Ronald Reagan in 1976.

The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who are often the targets of lawyers.
The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers.. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick, like Frist, or who immerse themselves in history, like Gingrich.
The Republicans merely mock and scorn people who have different views then themselves. And the last time I checked, Lawyers make money.
The Lawyers'€™ Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America . And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers'€™ Party, grow.

Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.
They rail against obscene profits while screwing the workers. You know, the ones that actually WORK. When Lilly Pharmaceuticals' 30 year old patent on Prozac was about to run out, they tinkered with it slightly, re-named it and marketed it as a new drug. They had plenty of time to make money off it, this is just greed. And since WHEN does a banker produce anything of value ?

This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers.
Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people.
Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.
Now that's odd... I was under the impression that Congress passed laws, but apparently I'm wrong.
And the last time I checked the Republican Party claims it's for less government, but they sure want to keep Pot illegal, outlaw abortion, and tell us what to do with out lives. Plus they do it all the damn time !

Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an awful way to govern a great nation.
When politicians as lawyers begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal system in our life becomes all-consuming. Some Americans become €œadverse parties of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit.
We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers.
Which republic are YOU living in ?
Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing.
As we all know, every Republican has NEVER used a lawyer in any of their dealings. Just drink the Kool-Aid already and shut up.

We cannot expect the Lawyers'€™ Party to provide real change, real reform or real hope in America. Can't...stop...laughing. Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.
(Alexander) Hamilton had written that through the practice of judicial review the Court ensured
that the will of the whole people, as expressed in their Constitution, would be supreme over
the will of a legislature, whose statutes might express only the temporary will of part of the
people. And Madison had written that constitutional interpretation must be left to the
reasoned judgment of independent judges, rather than to the tumult and conflict of the
political process. If every constitutional question were to be decided by public political
bargaining, Madison argued, the Constitution woulpeting factions, political passion and partisan spirit.

Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse.
Whereas more Republicans and giving them more unchecked power is a golden dream. My ass.

The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the world's lawyers! This is a LIE. We have 50 percent or less. Link: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_country_in_the_world_has_most_lawyers_per_capita Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democrat Party. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association goes to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high!
High product costs having nothing to do with a stock market that's flawed, or BUSINESSMEN being overly greedy. No, we'd never take advantage of our own citizens, that'd be just wrong.

Okay, I'm so Liberal I have to go smoke a joint, practice witchcraft, and tell all my women friends to become lesbians.

Thoughts on Christmas

Have you ever noticed that you rarely if ever have a bad Christmas ? I don't think the answer to this lies with religion per se, but with the power of our minds. Think about this: A large majority of the people on this planet are at peace at this time; our thoughts are ones of contentment and love, laughter and sex, celebration and gratitude. So, to my way of thinking, we are using a lot of our psychic energy on a major level and shaping our reality. I only wish that we had many more holidays that brought out the better part of us so we could live in a better world. If we take the time every day to coordinate and shape our reality, just think what we could do. As we are made from Divine energy (or at the very least the material from old stars/the Universe) we have the power. We manifest the divine every day whether we're aware of it or not.
If you can stay mindful of that every minute, you can make this world a paradise.
Now it could be that I'm being influenced by the very energy I'm espousing and am completely full of shit. But I don't think so. We're all little transmitters and we pick up on what is around us. Ever been in a room of crabby people, then wonder why your mood is going to hell ? THAT'S the reason.
So light the candles, make love with abandon, reach for that dream. You can do it !
With that in mind, I'm going to ask women out (even if they're in their twenties), get stoned more, and get back to all those things I drifted away from.
You can have the life you want if you believe. Please believe !

Pawlenty Gets It

When I and others had my food allotment cut last month, I lost 200 dollars and the ability to eat properly. Well, someone came forward and said, "First I panicked, then I cried, then I got angry." This person is now in court demanding that our sperm-guzzling governor put the program back on the books. Even as I write, the judge is hearing this case. Back in the old days, we'd have tarred and feathered the asshole in charge, but now we have to settle for lawsuits.
It's not just affecting me, it's about others welfare. The diabetic that controls his condition by getting money for the proper foods is now shit out of luck. Although the state WILL pay for insulin and incur higher costs then if they'd just given him money for food.
Stupidity, thy name is government.
Assholitis is an untreatable condition that has affected our governor. Too bad it's not fatal. But sometimes a lawsuit is just as good. And if Pawlenty decides to run for President in 2012 and wins, this man is leaving the U.S. Canada or the Netherlands sound good.
