Mixed Emotions on Bruce Jenner

Spell Check, People!

OK... I am completely aware that I'm not exactly allergic to typo's myself, but if you're gonna build a sign and then go and buy four different colors of paint...?


BEHOLD: The wit of Conservatives!

And that's that!

I'm going to expand on this a bit later on, as well as counter some of the clunclusions one might draw from it regarding the kinds of candidates the Democrats should be nominating, but, in the meantime, please enjoy this very succint, well-written piece explaning Why the Republicans will never win another National Election.

Do you think we could all criticize Ann Coulter...

...WITHOUT denigrating Trans People, please?  Is that possible?

 

 Please feel free to use the meme below if you'd like to. I very rarely pick fights over "Political Correctness," but this IS a hill I'm willing to die on.

The Inevitable Hillary Clinton



Now about those videos I referenced...  IMHO Hall of Famer, CGP Grey has put together a series of excellent videos on various electoral systems.  These are critical of the one we use, and offer alternatives that would make for more representative voting, avoid gerrymandering and encourage a wider array of Political Parties. I highly recommend watching all of them, as they are all really well done. But if you don't have the time or patience for that, please be sure to at least watch the FIRST one, especially if you think Bernie Sanders should run as Independent, or a strong 3rd Party should be formed.

(Facebook) Trolls... and William

(Hopefully that'll get him to watch this!)



First thread, from a Liberal Page:





























































So... Calls first poster a cunt, says "U R Dumb" to me about a dozen times, fails to come up with even a single example when asked, tells the PAGE'S OWNER (Mark Smith)to STFU, and then says he wants to talk about "pussay" instead.

BEHOLD: The Republican base!

Since he seemed to appreciate that Mr. Smith welcomes all opinions, I almost wanted to point out that we welcome (or at least respond in kind) to differing opinions HERE as well, if only because I though t it would be extremely amusing to have a Conservative that even William couldn't stand . LOL. But no - ain't nobody got for that!

And here is the second example, including the header graphic, from a Conservative Page:






































At the time of ths posting? STILL no examples.

Who can argue this?

How I feel about the next Star Wars Movie...

Trailer 1:



Trailer 2:



So... Uh... Anyone want to come over and play Star Wars figures?

;)

Found on my Tumblr...

Yes, I have a Tumblr. (https://www.tumblr.com/blog/niceguyeddiecabot)

FWIW, I also am on Twitter (@niceguyeddiecab) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/eddie.cabot.96)

I am still most active HERE, but if you want to hook up on any of those platforms, there you go. I'm a lot more active on Facebook now that I've been banned from Media Matters (more on that later, if you're interested.) But THIS is still my primary blog.

ANYWAY, something amusing from Tumblr:

Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Nailed it.
*wheeze* 
Oh my god.
Nailed it.
Will reblog this every time until the rapture!

(Last comment mine.)

I'm not suggesting that this is how I view abortion, but I always find it hilarious whenever someone invokes God in an argument and clearly has *NO FUCKING IDEA* what they're talking about.

*a-hem* Not that anyone HERE ever does that. *cough* *cough*

And of course there's the Jesus joke, which is in HIGHLY poor taste and yet really fucking funny despite. (Sorry - I can't account for my tastes, poor as they are! I was born with them after all!) ;)
