Manufactured Outrage

I told you in my 14 February post, “Preconceived Reality," to stay tuned for another post about a self-aggrandizing soldier. Though, he isn’t just self-aggrandizing, he’s downright dis-fucking-respectful. And quite shameful to boot.

Other than that, this one’s fun. I lay out a bunch of facts, only to be rebutted with, basically: Nuh-uh. You’re a liar and I’m a soldier, so I’m awesome.

If you’ve been following my blog, you may have noticed a pattern in the Republican thought process. It never varies and is absolutely amazing. I explain it in my last response of this thread.

The names have been changed to protect the innocent and the guilty – and all the shady characters in between.

Fun, Fun, Fun!

More random bits of fun.  New levels of insanity, folks. Republicans are really working hard at making America the land of the mindless and the home of the stupid. Go ahead, sing it. I know you want to.

Fantasy Island Doctrine

Here’s an oldie from when the Arab Spring began almost a year ago. The short discussion started out with a simple misquote that turned into a hoax, which then took a hard right toward fantasy.

The plane, boss! The plane!

Don’t get me wrong, fantasy is fine when you’re roll-playing – either in bed or with Dungeons & Dragons. Just not when dealing with real-world issues. Real-world fantasy can occur when you start from a pre-determined political outcome and attempt to forcibly fit it to your party’s goals. Instead of simply following the truth. Wherever it leads.

Shameless Self-Promotion

When not bitching about politics, my day job is to sculpt toys and collectibles. Been doonit nigh on twenny year now. Sorry, that was my ‘old prospector’ voice. He appears every now and then. I have no control over him. That was the first time he showed up in print, though.

Anyway, here are a few reviews for a pair of model kits I sculpted for Fairbanx Models. The models are companion pieces to the old plastic Aurora Model kits of the 60’s. Please buy them. The Fairbanx ones, not the Aurora ones. I’ve already been paid for my work, so I’m not promoting the purchasing of them for personal gain. Wouldn’t mind if you did Fairbanx a solid, though.

Preconceived Reality

This is another fine example of fact versus fantasy.

After using facts and logic, I’m told I was twisting the truth and providing no facts. This Republican style of pure denial of anything they don’t agree with is a fucking amazing thing to me. I know there have been studies on this subject, but holy shit. It’s like their eyes and ears are just physically unable to process the words and sounds that they don’t like. It’s as if the facts only exist in some ultraviolet and ultrasound environment undetectable to a Conservative’s sensory perception.


To be fair, he never says he’s a Republican. But it’s pretty evident from where he gets his opinions told to him. After reading this, decide for yourself.

Catholic Condom-nation

Apparently, Obama is waging another war. This time against religious freedom. If I believed the deliriously extreme over-reactions of the political right, Obama wages war on average of three times a week. He’s been in office approximately 156 weeks. Wow. President Obama has waged nearly 468 wars on the American people. I guess I should start building a secret bunker under my house before he gets me.

What the hell am I talking about? Read on, fellow information-seekers…

Mythical Beasties

You know the guy the Republicans say they are running against? 

The guy who made the economy worse. The guy whose policies are destroying jobs. The guy who increased taxes. The guy who doled out the most food stamps ever. The guy who gives everyone else your money. The guy who decreased the military. The guy who's weak on defense. The guy who's weak on fighting terrorism. The guy who's weak on immigration.
