I had a good laugh over this one:

"Lara Trump Whines: How Dare Dems Label Trump As 'Convicted Felon'!"

"Dear RNC, Donald Trump has been convicted of 34 felonies."

As per this article:

"Lara Trump, the nepotism appointment to the RNC, complained to Fox News that the Kamala Harris campaign is labeling her father-in-law a convicted felon."

Here's the link to this article:      Whining over Convicted Felon Labeled Convicted Felon

I wonder if Lara Trump believes there are electoral votes to be won for the Republicult™ in the great state of Denial.

Well, so far, so good! A substantial portion of the Democratic Party has already coalesced around VPOTUS Kamala Harris, TSF's campaign has been caught flat footed, the mainstream media's coverage of TSF's campaign is mostly negative, and Harris has quickly overtaken her much older opponent's recent momentum. But, I suspect the Democratic Party's palace intrigues are not completely over just yet.

Next, Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris needs to carefully choose her running mate. Still, on the plus side, anyone she chooses will be a far, far better candidate than the Republicult's™ train wreck of a VP pick.

I found this latest performance from Drama Queen Greene to be especially entertaining:

"MTG says prison 'would lead to the murder' of Trump in freak out over felony sentencing"

As per this article:

"Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) expressed alarm this week that former President Donald Trump could be murdered if he is sentenced to prison after a conviction on 34 felony felony counts in New York.

At Tuesday's House Homeland Security Committee hearing, Greene slammed Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) over a bill that would strip the former president of his Secret Service protection if he was sentenced to prison."

Here's the link to this article:      MTG Concerned Over TSF's Safety in Prison

Now, the Republicult™ has always claimed to be the party of fiscal responsibility. So, I'm shocked, shocked to find this sudden about-face on an issue of obvious fiscal importance! So, I ask you, what truly fiscally responsible person would not take immediate action to reduce the totally redundant, unnecessary workload on the resource limited, overstretched Secret Service, and reduce the already exorbitant tax burden on every single, patriotic 'Merican citizen?! Seriously, I, for one, am not seeing any downside to stripping a former president of Secret Service protection if he/she is sentenced to prison, as punishment for the felonies he/she has been found guilty of committing.

"Manchin says he wouldn't serve as Harris VP"

Ooooooooooh, the heartbreak! Woe to democracy!

As per this article:

"Sen. Joe Manchin (I-W.Va.) on Monday said he would not consider serving as Vice President Harris's running mate, arguing it is time for a "new generation" following President Biden's withdrawal from the 2024 race."

How can our republic possibly survive?

July 22, 1934 - John Dillinger Was Allegedly Killed

So, who you gonna believe Discordians, the FBI, or RAW?

So, what happens next?

I really don't know. I hope the Democratic Party rallies around VPOTUS Kamala Harris. But, I have no insights into the party's recent palace intrigues.

Okay, who gave TSF a Discordian Pope Card? Come on now, speak up! Now, I know handing out Pope Cards is a sacred act, duty, and part of our Erisian Evangelical Mission™; well ... at least I think it is. But, this has gone way too far, and it just isn't funny any more!

"Republicans Are Literally Treating Trump Like He's the Pope at Convention"

"Pope Donald I is hardly a Biblical scholar, but his grip over his followers is definitely infallible."

As per this article:

We were given fair warning that Donald Trump's relationship to God had strengthened (even more) after the attempted assassination on Saturday. Shortly after the shooting in Milwaukee he posted on Truth Social, "It was God alone who prevented the unthinkable from happening."

But no-one could have been prepared for the former president attracting Pope-like devotion as he administered to the congregation, I mean audience, at the RNC convention this week.

A CNN reporter noted on Tuesday night that the behavior of the audience at the RNC was more akin to a Catholic mass. The audience-turned-congregation was now taking a cue from the priest, in this case Trump, he reported. As the ex-president grants speakers at the podium a standing ovation, his flock, and also, pointedly, his disciples in the VIP seating area, quickly follow suit.

John 13:15: Jesus says, "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you."

Here's the link to this article:      Pope TSF Crowned with Sanitary Napkin at RNC Convention

So, come on now, fess up! It had to be a misguided Discordian who instigated this outrageous, sacrilegious abomination!

Quote from: Sophia the Altered on July 20, 2024, 06:07:16 AMIt's also depressing because it proves you cannot treat conservatives like they treat other people. They will go nuclear and try to destroy your life if you regard one of theirs with the same casual cruelty they have so freely for all sorts of people. Worthless gutter trash.

Yes, they certainly are an unpleasant lot. I try to avoid having anything to do with them. In my experience, it was a complete waste of time attempting to have an adult, intelligent conversation with any of them. Sometimes, in the past, I used to 'toy' with them for my own amusement. But again, I've come to the point where I no longer want anything to do with them.

Well ... Confuflux has come and gone, so I decided to see what those Pastafarians who didn't persist might be up to today. And, to my surprise, I found it's a Pastafarian Holy Day. Yes, for them, it's Daiquiri Day!

Here's a link to the proof:   Pastafarian Daiquiri Day

And, if you want even more proof, I personally recommend Barcardi 151.

Quote from: Brother Mythos on July 14, 2024, 03:24:54 AMI 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?

The choice is harsh, but the timeline is very flexible! Take all the time you need  :fnord:  :fnord:  :fnord:

Thank you for the dispensation! I signed up.

Quote from: Q. G. Pennyworth on July 17, 2024, 01:44:32 PMA better question might be how does this space become somewhere we can stick apart meaningfully. There were good old days where a lot more discussion and creation was taking place here. Enshitification hasn't hit us the same way that it hit places that Need To Appease The Shareholders, but I think we are all a little more stretched thin and have less time and energy to bring what we're doing back to the class. Or maybe we're getting old and new folks need to make spaces that we won't understand and can't participate in. I don't know. I do know I'm not dead yet and I'm gonna keep sticking things on lamp posts.

Thank you for your thoughtful reply, and do keep Doing The Work.

Now, I have some serious thinking to do.

Quote from: Q. G. Pennyworth on July 16, 2024, 02:03:09 PMI do not, and I am too far away to be much use, but I would hate for a Florida or Florida-adjacent n00b to see this thread and think "oh well I guess I shouldn't because..."

It is not my intent to be sarcastic, or mean-spirited. But, I believe that what we may want Discordianism to be, verse what Discordianism really is as practiced on this forum are two very different things.

Are we meaningful?

Are we having fun yet?

I think not, in answer to both rhetorical questions. So, I ask you, what do you think we need to do to make Discordianism meaningful and fun again, as I believe the founders of our irreverent religion intended it to be? You've been in this longer than I have, and I do value your opinions.

Quote from: Mandelbrot Slapper on July 15, 2024, 07:22:16 PMFunny thing is the last time the seceret service offed a President it was because he'd just withdrawn 100,000 tropps from Vietnam & was setting about bringing the rest back as well. Trump has clearly signalled that there's to be no more funding of The Ukraine and that the financing of Israel's genocode in Gaza will be under review as well.

Your knowledge of 'Merican history, politics, and spelling is truly underwhelming.

In light of recent events, I can't help but wonder how many members of the Republicult™ are proudly carrying their AR-15 flags, and wearing their AR-15 pins, AR-15 t-shirts, AR-15 hats, etc., at the RNC.

I mean, after all, it was one of their very own who fired on their very own favorite convicted felon with an AR-15, their very own favorite firearm.
