I don't know ... that's a really hard choice for me to make. Could you just give me a 'time out' while I'm thinking it over?

Well ... as near as I can tell, the Church of the FMS was last successfully, politically active in Florida in 2013, as per the following link:    Florida Capitol's Holiday Display Now Includes A Spaghetti Monster

And, in spite of their inferior pedigree, they were also politically active in Alaska last year, as per the following link:    Church of the FSM - CATEGORY ARCHIVES: EVANGELISM

So, do you know of any Discordian cabals in Florida who are politically active in the Resistance, and might appreciate some support? Personally, I'm unaware of any Discordian cabals at all in my own state.

Malaclypse the Younger, K.S.C., proclaimed, "We Discordians must all stick apart."

So, we as individuals can certainly volunteer. But, being the decentralized religion that we are, and the condition we are in, I don't expect to see any 'boots on the ground,' as would be the case with organized resistance cells.     

Hail Eris!

Fuck that, go and do it anyway. The FSM people pass the religious sniff test and they have half the history and documentation we do.

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Tech Entrepreneurs Identif...

Enterprising tech entrepreneurs have once again done their market research, listened to customers' feedback, etc., and developed the hardware and software to fill another 'market need.' And, what makes this really special is the use of an identification scanner and facial recognition software!

"Bullets being sold out of vending machines in some U.S. grocery stores"

As per this article:

"A company has installed computerized vending machines to sell ammunition in grocery stores in Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas, allowing patrons to pick up bullets along with a gallon of milk.

American Rounds said their machines use an identification scanner and facial recognition software to verify the purchaser's age and are as "quick and easy" to use as a computer tablet. But advocates worry that selling bullets out of vending machines will lead to more shootings in the U.S., where gun violence killed at least 33 people on Independence Day alone.

The company maintains the age-verification technology means that the transactions are as secure, or more secure, than online sales, which may not require the purchaser to submit proof of age, or at retail stores, where there is a risk of shoplifting."

Here's the link to this article:      Ammunition Now Available in Vending Machines

Yes, thanks to 'Merican entrepreneurial spirit, another redneck wet dream has achieved reality!

Aneristic Illusions / The Ecclesiastical Resistance ...
Last post by Brother Mythos - July 09, 2024, 05:59:54 PM
I've never taken any interest in Satanism, and never taken it seriously, as it's always struck me as being an unimaginative religion. But, I do have to give credit where credit is due. These guys are a force in the Resistance. 

"Satanists in Florida offer to fill school counselor roles after DeSantis law"

As per this article:

"Florida Satanists are volunteering to fill school counselor roles after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a law allowing religious chaplains into public schools amid staffing shortages.

"Nothing in the text of the bill serves to exclude us, and no credible interpretation of the First Amendment could. Should a school district now choose to have chaplains, they should expect Satanists to participate as well," Lucien Greaves, cofounder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, said in a statement to The Hill on Monday.

Back when DeSantis signed the bill in April, he described Satanism as "not a religion" and said its members would not be allowed to participate in the program.
  
But Greaves said the governor "openly lied to the public" regarding the situation.

"Either entirely ignorant of the most basic fundamentals of constitutional law, or too incompetent to care, DeSantis fails to recognize that it is not the place of the government to confer unique rights to one religious identity while denying them to another," he said."

Quote from: altered on July 07, 2024, 10:49:20 PMHowl, I'm just gonna say that Biden threw trans people under the bus too recently. Last day of Pride month, in fact. His administration releases a statement which repeats and agrees with the lies of Libs of TikTok and their ilk.

I'm not Black, so I'm not going to speak for Black people, but from the ones i know and have spoken to, I have come to the conclusion that the one remaining difference between Biden and Trump is that Biden will be polite about hatefucking your oppressed community and probably won't use the expanded god-king power his office gives him now to do it.

That's not nothing, no. I'd just consider that 1: Biden looks really fucking bad right now, and (more importantly) 2: a vote is no longer a choice, from here until the end of time. You absolutely must vote correctly every single time and WIN or it is THE END OF AMERICA AS YOU KNOW IT, without the slightest exaggeration. The first time a power-hungry dipshit gets in the Oval Office, military coups are on the table and even if they FAIL the President can't be held accountable (because commanding the military is one of the core functions of the Executive) while any military member who disobeys CAN be held accountable. And since bribes are legal, even if you pick the right guy now, he is not guaranteed to be the right guy tomorrow. Special interest group puts a few milli in the retirement fund and hey, it's law now: your neighborhood will become a Superfund site -- or it would, if the EPA had that authority anymore. Read it yourself. It's worse than you think, man.

At this point, it's not a matter of if, it's not even a matter of when, democracy has already fallen. Getting the vote out is no longer a viable option. It's time to get out and take as many people as you can with you.

I say that as someone who CANNOT LEAVE, even if you try to get me out. I'm fucked.

I can leave.  I have Canadian citizenship.  But I won't, because I refuse to be budged by knuckle-dragging po'buckers.
