Sterling Silver


"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?"

"You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."

"I’m just saying, in your lousy fucking Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people." 

"Don't put [Magic Johnson] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don't bring him to my games."

~soon to be former LA Clippers Owner, Donald Sterling


BTW, just so there is no confusion, I did not feel it necessary in my video to specifically condemn Sterling's remarks. That was not actually relevant to my overall point, and at this point is hardly necessary as so many people far greater than myself have already come down on him, hard, and rightfully so.

Obviously the remarks are despicable.  That should go without saying.

I had a kind of different take on the whole thing though, that was at once both cynical and optimistic. And THAT'S what I wanted to talk about here.

A new direction for the blog, and "small government"

...And since my YouTube skills are obviously lacking, here are the two "blink and you'll miss them" graphs that I referred to (and briefly showed) in the video:

A Cracked article EVERYONE should read

Here's something EVERYONE should read.

And AFTER reading that, to anyone who wants to throw around the "Obama's a Nazi" (or BUSH, for that matter!) or "Eddie's a Communist" or whatever...

To anyone who wants to throw those terms around lightly, let me give you a hearty FUCK. YOU.

When we actually start exterminating people (*ahem* gays) or start siezing property whole cloth (as opposed to the Right's bed-wetting about a 1% tax increase on the top 1%'ers) then FINE, there are Nazi's and Communists amoung us.

But UNTIL then?

Government Welfare or Private Charity?

Conservatives HATE the very idea, the very notion of WELFARE.

Me? I hate, nay I DESPISE inefficiency and ineffective solutions.  And it is with that thought that I give you this:

And this though by the immortal Ricky Gervais:

Yeah... Now would anyone like to even ATTEMPT to tell me why we should prefer to do thing things the way we do?

When the best thing you can say about organized religion is that it is a highly inefficient way to deal with poverty? Yeah: I say it's high time we started taxing [the shit out of] it, just as we do with EVERY OTHER VICE.

Good day.

Another great article...

...from Cracked.

I found this particularly interesting having done the interview I did with Christine Smith.

One item in particular: The inclusion of Transgenderism in the DSM. While I still believe in the point of medical legitimacy, there were several aspects of that that I had never considered. And yeah... based on these, it probably needs to go.
