Raid on the Sublime Porte


Let me say, without equivocation, that the three pasha's who comprise The Young Turks are the lamest, laziest, most ignorant and stupid news commentators on the Internet - and that's saying something. If you want to torture yourself for 8:50 minutes watch these boorish yabbo's "resolve" the issue of "Gay Marriage" for the nation - cheer-leading RBG's musings about A CASE THAT IS CURRENTLY BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT and that she will, therefore, be asked to rule on (unless she's forced to recuse herself for said musings) and getting the objections and legal justification of Judge Roy Moore ass-backwards (They're not alone in this) and comparing the Judge to a segregationist preventing black children entering the Arkansas schoolhouse doors. Others who are very familiar with segregation did not feel the same way about Judge Moore or his ruling.

So the Supreme Court is currently hearing and reviewing a "watershed case" regarding Same-Sex Marriage on which they are expected to hand down a ruling in June - everyone thinks this will "decide" the issue, like all those other decisive decisions the court has handed down over the past 50 years. But while they're deciding, lower Federal Courts are making picayune rulings on homosexual marriage across the fruited plain and these rulings might, or might not, have legal standing come June 2015. Ruth Bader Ginsburg hopes and thinks SCOTUS will look to their neighbors and children and hand down the "right" decision because we've had about 35 years of progressively fetishizing ring stinging and rug munching so "perceptions have changed." On the other hand, though perceptions have changed, the US Constitution has not, nor have the laws of nature, nor has rules regarding logic and reason so there is every chance that Same-Sex Marriage will NOT be found to be legal on constitutional grounds. If scenario 2 (no constitutional right to gay marriage) is, in fact, the ruling in June then 1. I'm definitely directing my web browser to The Young Turks to watch their heads explode and 2. I'll expect a blanket apology to Judge Moore from every gay married couple in Alabama who will have to rip up their marriage license.

Marriage, as an institution, has taken a beating in the US (and around the world I suppose) over the past 50 years but it is a resilient institution. It is of supreme importance to some and of little or no value to others - unbreakable in many respects but extremely fragile in places you'd least expect. It joins the two sex/life forces together into a union that fulfills natures design and adds to (or detracts from) the individual happiness and security of those joined together. People of the same sex should be able to enter into such a union, but instead of calling it marriage which suggests the joining together of the male and female life force - the Yin and the Yang - we should call it Same Sex Merge and give it the unique status of union it deserves and, philosophically speaking, requires.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
