“Smiles, everyone! Smiles!”

What if the island from Fantasy Island was a source of incredible paranormal energies and Mr. Roarke, its caretaker, was tasked with directing those energies in a constructive way? What if we assume that Mr. Roarke was somehow removed from that island when the show was canceled in 1984? What if that raw power was left to fester, directionless and untamed, for 20 years, until the island itself formed a rudimentary, malevolent intelligence? What if, in a twisted mockery of how guests used to arrive, the island used its powers to cause a plane to crash there? And what if this dark new intelligence, incapable of seeing that Roarke had used fear and irony to help his guests, simply mimicked Roark’s outwardly sadistic approach, using its powers to terrify and confuse the survivors of the crash, until it was ultimately revealed that there was no underlying logic or reason to any of the torments they had been forced to endure? Wouldn’t that have been a far more satisfying conclusion to Lost than the one we got?

Bring The Receipts

How bizarre. The Republicans have been given the opportunity to prove to the world that Black Lives Matter and Antifa were responsible for the attack on the Capitol, and they’ve refused to take it. Why would they do that, especially with all the evidence they say they have? A cop was killed. Don’t blue lives matter any more? It’s almost as if the Republican party is afraid that an investigation into a mob full of Republicans storming the Capitol, posting premeditated plans to murder other Republicans, being aided by Republicans from the inside and incited by a Republican president using Republican leaning “news” outlets might somehow make Republicans look bad. It sure is a mystery. I guess we’ll never know.


Republicans’ ‘Deep Plow’ Moment Is Here—and They Don’t Seem Ready

Watching how Republicans have so rapidly evolved from a fundamentalist Christian oligarchic organization, which was bad enough, to a cult of personality has been eye opening. I never thought it could happen so quickly. The disturbing part is how Republicans have openly stopped pretending they care about America. They’re not interested in American values, American history, American freedoms, or even American land. They only care about getting a pat on the head from Cheeto Teensyhands. And there is NOTHING they won’t do to get it. It’s repulsive.
