"I'll get to that right away.  First thing.  Top priority."


Then continue doing what you're doing.

This works surprisingly well.

Also, "I'll take that under advisement."

And this is how you become a dictatorship.

Well, yes.

Oh, I know.  It's just disappointing, that it's happening at the hands of some banal, tanned egomaniac who struggles to string a coherent sentence together.  He doesn't even have good dress sense.

I wanted someone like Sulla or Octavian.  :(

VOTER SUPPRESSION LINK ROUNDUP

North Dakota ensuring thousands of Native Americans can't vote - https://www.npr.org/2018/10/13/657125819/many-native-ids-wont-be-accepted-at-north-dakota-polling-places

Indiana illegally purging 20k voters https://www.snopes.com/news/2018/10/15/indiana-state-officials-accused-violating-court-order-improperly-purging-voters/

Florida - voter reg website went down a week before the deadline. The state says it's working fine, but thousands of people say they can't register. (not to mention the republicans fighting tooth and nail against extending the registration deadline to account for Hurricane Michael) https://www.politico.com/states/florida/story/2018/10/09/a-mess-floridas-online-voter-registration-system-panned-641953

Georgia - where the race is a dead heat and the south could potentially get its first black female senator... They froze over 50k registrations, 70% of which are African American. (African Americans are over 30% of the state) https://www.politico.com/states/florida/story/2018/10/09/a-mess-floridas-online-voter-registration-system-panned-641953

Georgia Also closed hundreds of polling places in black communities "to save money" - http://www.governing.com/topics/politics/sl-polling-place-close-ahead-of-november-elections-black-voters.html

Just today, GA threw a bunch of black people off a bus headed for the polls, for some reason I still don't understand: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/black-senior-citizens-georgia-ordered-off-bus-bound-for-polls-stacey-abrams-brian-kemp/?ftag=CNM-00-10aab6a&linkId=58376821

Nevada purged 90k people from voter rolls using a postcard removal scheme - https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/at-least-90000-voters-purged-from-nevada-voter-rolls-voting-rights-group-claims/

Texas purged 2K because the applications didn't have "a handwritten signature", which isn't actually a law https://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Texas-rejects-2-400-online-voter-registrations-as-13282058.php

The bus thing was because political parties can't transport people to the polls, and someone called the bus in, so county officials decided that, based on what they were told by an anonymous tipster, BLM is part of the democratic party.

Real reason:  Black people in Georgia.

I expect this from Rep King.  I don't expect it from Toronto.

Dude, Canada is going full potato. Faith Goldy, according to our media, is a “fringe” candidate with no chance of winning... except she has the tacit approval of our province’s premiere, the esteemed less-interesting, and former hash dealer, Doug Ford.

The amalgamation was the worst thing to happen to Toronto since the raizing of Yorkville. “Actual” Toronto would never have stood for this bullshit, and polls prove that still true. But, Scarborough, Etobicoke, North York, on the other hand EAT THIS SHIT UP.

Scarborough was always bad.  Even back in the 70s.

Apple Talk / Re: 21C Weirdness in blog format.
« on: October 17, 2018, 11:13:03 pm »
(Note:  I am inviting Cain, Brother Mythos, Chaotic Neutral Observer, QG, and LMNO to add their own entries to this, on any subject related to 21C.  Vex and Cram, too, if they're around.  EDIT:  Also Hoops, even though he is a savage)

Thanks for the invitation, Dok.

As I don't come here everyday, and don't read every thread, I didn't get around to reading this one until Monday. However, I have been gathering my thoughts, and I will be posting to this blog in the near future.

I am probably not the oldest member of this forum, but I suspect I am the oldest currently active member. That being said, my views on “21C Weirdness” may seem quite odd to most of the people here. But, so be it.

I would expect no less.  Also, it's nice not to be THE crusty old bastard anymore.

Well, it's possible, until a storm rolls in.  Then it's a very expensive mistake.

That's included in the money part.

Until the bridge from Northern Ireland to Scotland is built, anyway.  You know, the one Boris Johnson promised everyone a few weeks back.  The completely impossible one from an engineering point of view.

Nothing is actually impossible.  All it takes is time and money.  Lots and lots of time and money.

So, the left-wing screeching about the dems has reached new levels on social media.  Apparently, if you vote to stop the redneck trash in the GOP, you are literally the next Hitler.

Do your part, America.  Shove a progressive down a manhole today.

What’s this now?

I just had - and I'm not kidding, here - some raging berner tell me that he isn't voting this year because Bernie never even got a chance to run for the ticket.

I mean, nobody did.  IT'S NOT A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEAR.

I hate everyone.  I hate everyone and I demand a return of the Spanish flu.

I wish people would stop ruining the term "progressive".  I mean, it's getting to be the same reaction when I tell people I'm a Discordian -- there are far too many assholes who don't get it, giving it a bad name.

Last week, I got tired of my Republicult™ neighbor carrying on about me being a “Librul.” (I do not start political conversations with him, as they are a waste of my time.)

Now, in the not too distant past, I considered myself to be a “moderate.” But, being a moderate doesn't seem to be possible these days.

As far as political party membership goes, I am, and have been for a couple of decades, officially registered as “non-affiliated.” However, by today's standards in the era of Trump, I might as well be a Card-Carrying Communist. So, I calmly told the neighbor that I am a Communist.

He didn't believe me, so I guess I'm going to have to design and print-out a membership card. This is not over.

Invite him to the secret meetings.
