Place yer bets!

I’ve got one month’s gross pay on “publicity stunt.” ETA And to every milquetoast Democrat out there saying that “political violence is un-American!” (Alt text: Bernie Sanders, “I am once again ...


(Apologies for the video censoring the fuck bombs; it was the only one I could find with the full speech.) In this speech, Larry Kramer was talking about AIDS. It wouldn’t take much to alter thi...


So, as I mentioned a few entries ago, I was told to RTO. For a little background: I work for the IRS in Vermont. I started on June 7th, 2021, and was remote until July 2022 because of COVID restr...


About a year ago, I saw a post from someone on this very site, who believes WFH is not only a net negative, but that we should abandon it completely in favor of working in the office full-time ag...


Because for the second time, I posted an entry (this time public) in which I briefly mentioned being Jewish-ish and made references to being anti-Zionist, and someone just had to pop in with (((D...


”Anyone you vote for, into the White House, will eventually, during their presidency, do something that will make you, as a supporter, go ‘Eeeehhhhh…’ [noise of “how the actual fuck do I justify...

“…but being wrong doesn’t have to mark you as irredeemable. We can learn and grow.”


Yesterday, I deleted Threads from my phone. Again. Not because of anything major; if I can give it anything, it’s more chill than Xitter ever was. Except for two topics: JK Rowling and Harry Pott...

The Contagion (survey-style!)

What size is your bed? Queen size, but when I moved to Burlington, my parents insisted on me getting a really thick mattress (they were paying for it). So it’s a queen size that’s, like, twelve i...


To preface this: Since January 2022, I have lived in a tiny village (~1200 people total) in a rural part of Vermont. Up ‘til then, I’d lived either in large metro areas or near them. This is sign...


During a performance of “American Idiot” on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, Billie Joe Armstrong changed the line “I’m not a part of the redneck agenda” to “I’m not a part of the MAGA agend...

Only the unloved hate

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We ...


ETA: Title change. And I, for one, am exhausted by the fact that she has designated herself The Voice Of Reason between Millennials and older generations. From the author of Generation Me: My Res...


Can someone be too old to hold office? That age-old question was front and center last week after awkward episodes from two of the oldest members of the U.S. Senate. On Wednesday, Sen. Mitch McCo...

Conservative Snowflakes

I mean, me? I love being called a snowflake by the same crowd that craps its collective drawers over beer, children’s media, breakfast cereals, and the skin color of mythical creatures.


And some people are fucking idiots. It’s me, I’m some people. So, around the beginning-ish of the pandemic, I became aware of A Bra That Fits, a calculator that’s supposed to give you your real b...
