Dashed this off for a comment thread at Wonkette today. Thought you all might enjoy it.

There was a man ill-favored and profane
Who saw no reason to restrain his spleen.
Though vulgar and most possibly insane,
He nonetheless did capture votes unseen.
Despite the efforts of his worthy foe,
And all the sweat and tears shed by her folk,
This tasteless clown did trumpet bile and woe,
Thus making of the race a rancid joke.
And now we all must tremble in our beds
To see our wondrous country so imperiled
By shameless hacks who'll trample more than dead
The work achieved by those whom Hope did herald.

For though the nation weeps, he'll worry not,
But sit upon his throne and bellow, "ROT!!"

Here's a beautiful thing:

Day-long livestream coverage from the site of Susan B. Anthony's grave

...where hundreds of people have been lining up all day to place their "I Voted" stickers on her grave, and take a picture. The host just said there's been over 10,000 people so far. People are waiting over an hour just to place their stickers and get a picture.


Such an amazing day.

I Am Woman - Helen Reddy

Recently I made some remarks about Elijah's choice of residence, and how disappointed I am in him for it. I would not have expected him to be so insular and uninformed that he wouldn't know why downtown L.A. is such an ugly choice.

For those of you who don't know what's going on down there, here's a link that lays a lot of it out:

Skid Row, the homeless in L.A., and how the influx of Pretty And Rich is making life so much worse

This is not a new thing, but it's been accelerating over the last few years. I avoid the glitzy playground because, to be frank, I couldn't trust myself not to lay into those entitled richies and their assumption that no one else's life matters when it comes to their little whims.

How many cities have seen this happen? The rich decide to "clean up" a neighborhood by taking over the living accommodations that - however humble - give the poor a place to be. And with those dwellings go all the services that helped those poor people, because who needs 'em now, right? Then after a few years, the richies get bored and decide to move somewhere else, because they FUCKING CAN. And the area falls back again, but now the community that was there is gone, the services are gone, and the equilibrium that was established over decades is kaput. And of course, the people who used to live and work there are now doubly poor, the homeless are persecuted by the cops and by draconian laws enacted to make life NICE AND CLEAN for the fucking richies, who don't want to admit that their asshattery ruins lives. Rinse, repeat, endlessly.

Why the FUCK can't rich people just stay in their own fucking neighborhoods and stop with this egocentric OMG WE GON MAKE IT BETTER bullshit, I don't know. They really do think the world belongs to them, is exclusively their playground, and that no one else matters.

And yeah, I'm kind of pissed at Elijah for jumping into that. I mean seriously - DUDE. *glares*

Okay, back now. Sorry about the freakout, but you guys are really the only people in my life I can cry to. Pathetic, I know. Thanks to those of you who were so kind about it. HUGS BACK

Since then:


2) I got weed poisoning on Thursday night. I was sitting at my computer, watching a movie and toking the way I usually do, which is taking a hit or two maybe every twenty minutes or so until I'm at just the right level. Usually when I smoke too much, I just end up falling asleep in my chair and then waking up and going off to bed, but this time... hoo, boy. After just a few tokes, I got hit with a MASSIVE wave of dizziness and nausea. Nearly fell out of the chair and ended up crawling to the bathroom, where I threw up a few times and then slept curled up next to the toilet, because I couldn't get up from the dizziness. I'm still feeling a bit of it - the dizziness, that is - but it's passing. I've only been able to eat some slices of whole wheat bread and drink seltzer, but I had a fruit smoothie today and I'm almost back to normal now. Gods, that was awful. The only other time that happened to me was a couple of years ago when I took a Vicodin for my shoulder and forgot to eat first. NIGHTMARE TIME.

3) I can't write that story I mentioned. It's just much too close to my emotions at the moment and far too painful for me to actually enter it now. I'm still taking notes, and want to wait until I get some distance before I try to write it, mostly because of the pain but also because I'm not completely certain it's actually a good story - it may just be a scream I need to scream. It's hard to tell for me, because so many of my stories come out of my own life and emotions, are ways to express things I'm feeling or grappling with in real life. But no, this one has to wait awhile. It's okay, though, because like I said earlier, it's a one-off, not part of High Contrast, so letting it go for a time won't affect anything else I'm writing.


5) Looking forward to John Oliver coming back tomorrow night. Anyone seen Samantha Bee's new show? She is SO awesome, and she's having a fucking great time with this. And MAN, is she vicious - it's utterly glorious. I think I may be crushing on her now that she's doing her own thing and not that Fox News Bunny character that she did on TDS, which was a wonderful caricature, but I didn't like her much. She's so much better as herself. <3 <3 <3

6) Drum Tao was on Stephen's show the other night. I have such intense desire to see these guys live. They'll be here in March, but I haven't got the money or anyone to go with. *sigh* Maybe someday...

Fullscreen that puppy and TURN IT UP TO ELEVEN.

7) I'm tired of writing angst. Somebody give me a prompt I can mess around with to take the taste of tears out of my mouth.

GREAT thread going on at Metafilter today:

Baby Hitler: Jeb! got asked if he would go back in time and kill Hitler as a baby. Hilarity ensues.

The comments are a riot. Metafilter has a lot of very erudite and funny people in its community. My two favorites are the link to the International Association of Time Travelers bulletin 1147, and this:

Say what you will about Hitler, but at least he killed Hitler.

Fucking great stuff, with lots of fun links. Do go and enjoy. :)

Saw this on a thread about Ben Carson's bugfuck lunacy:

Have you heard the crap that guy is going around spouting? Holy shit, that guy's crazy.

Walter Sobchek tells off Donald Trump

GREAT mashup video featuring the very LOUD Walter Sobchek from The Big Lebowski reacting to the fatuous bullshit slung by Agent Orange.

I've just had the depressing realization that without Jon and Stephen, my interest in politics has plummeted to nearly zero.

Which actually makes sense, given that I was pretty apolitical when Jon took over TDS. It was really his tenure on the show that got me interested in politics again, which I'd lost since I left Santa Cruz, and even living there in the early 90's, it was local rather than national that interested me. Having Jon, and then Stephen, as guides made it all worth paying attention to, but now that they're gone, it's all just a bunch of fucking white guys yelling at each other again. When they're not yelling at each other, they're bullying the rest of us, and I just can't be bothered.

On The Trumpster's flare for the dramatic:

Watching this man run for President is like eating ice cream on a roller coaster made of blowjobs.

On contemplating Laudito Si, Pope Frank's new encyclical concerning climate change and environmentalism:

I have this great little fantasy...

Up in heaven, the god of Christianity sits on his throne, his son beside him, both of them frowning thunderously at the rich asshole standing before them. YOU FUCKED UP MY PLANET, yells god. I GAVE YOU THIS AMAZING THING, TOLD YOU TO TAKE CARE OF IT, AND YOU FUCKED IT UP. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH EFFORT IT TOOK TO MAKE THAT THING? HOW MUCH TIME AND SKILL? BILLIONS OF FUCKING YEARS, IT TOOK ME. AND YOU SHIT ON IT. YOU THINK YOU'RE GETTING AWAY WITH THAT?

The angel guards drag the arrogant shithead blustering his excuses away to the Hell Chute, while Jesus yells ASSHOLE at him.

And this repeats for Every. Single. One. of the fuckwit cretins denying that the planet is dying, and refusing to do anything about its condition.

And not just in the Christian heaven. Every god in every afterlife yelling the same thing at whichever of their acolytes displayed this selfish, cretinous behavior. An entire chorus of enraged gods pounding idiots into the dust for deciding that their convenience is more important than the orders to the contrary given to them by the gods they pretend to worship.

'Tis a futile little fantasy, but mine own.

Well now, wasn't that fun?

Good ol' Joe. About time somebody gave that smug little homonculus the pasting he deserves.

Christ, I so want to slap that smarmy smirk off Romney's lying, flip-flopping mug.

It's been a while, but let's have a chorus, shall we?

If the people of this nation are just flat out stupid enough to vote this hairdo into office, well, I'm done with 'em. They can fend for themselves.

So no, Mr. Romney, you're not a trailblazing leader looking to save the country from TEH EBUL SOCIALIZMZ with your Amazing Speshul Formula For Economic Magic. You're JUST AN ASSHOLE.

Mitt Romney doesn't know why windows on jets don't open.

I swear, they must pop champagne corks at the White House every time this guy opens his mouth.

My Illegal Abortion

One woman's story of pre-Roe abortion, and her terrible fear that we're returning to that dark, deadly world.

Please read, and pass it on. I cannot express how important this is.

(I commented briefly with my story. It's on the first page of comments, if you're interested.)
