Got up early Christmas morning and built a little metal wagon for my niece. Most awesome, uncliest feeling ever.

People like listening to me because of the interesting word usements I structure.

The Drumhead

“Have we become so fearful, have we become so cowardly, that we must extinguish a man because he carries the blood of a current enemy?… That’s how it starts. But the road from legitimate suspicion to rampant paranoia is very much shorter than we think. Something is wrong here… I don’t like what we have become… With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably… The first time any man’s freedom is trodden on, we’re all damaged… We think we’ve come so far. Torture of heretics, burning of witches, it’s all ancient history. Then, before you can blink an eye, suddenly it threatens to start all over again… villains who twirl their moustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well camouflaged… waiting for the right climate in which to flourish, spreading fear in the name of righteousness. Vigilance… that is the price we have to continually pay.”

Victim Blaming

Just read a sheriff’s post telling people that, in order to stop Muslim terrorists, it is their RESPONSIBILITY to carry concealed firearms. Not their right. Their RESPONSIBILITY. So if a terrorist kills you before you can kill them, now it’s your fault. Up next, the sheriff will explain to you ladies how if you dress nicely maybe you deserve to get raped. For a bunch of people who claim to be all about Jesus and the Constitution and who have such a huge problem with Muslims, the fundamentalist right wing cocksuckers in this country are working as hard and fast as they can to turn the USA into fucking Afghanistan.
