Plan 9 For ISIS Space

Plan 9 for ISIS Space

My friends, there’s nothing more American than High School, where anything is possible. My friends, you might be the quarterback and find your cheerleader sweetheart and go on to live an idyllic life. Or, you might take the school mattress, er, I mean mascot, to the prom because … YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LEAVE [...]

No means Yes, and other Thinkspeak

Emma Watson He for She Speech

Thank you friends of Restoring Truthiness for your tireless pursuit of the Truthy. Sorry to say, but this may be our last post. But it’s not all bad news, in fact, Republicans may win control of the Senate – the long national nightmare will be over – in two more years when a “real” American [...]

The Unbearable Lightness of Bugging

Juliette Binoche crying

It makes me cry to see Juliet Binoche cry. And all because of Daniel Day-Lewis’ philandering. Oh, she she tried to get even by having her own affair, but her lover turned out to be a Stasi agent, a government spy. And they took pictures so they could blackmail her.  Communism in Bohemia. But enough of [...]

Bugsy ‘effin Malone

Bugsy 'effin Malone

Recognizer her? That’s Jodie Foster.  Jodie Foster covered in cream pie which what the guns shot in the movie Bugsy Malone. I recalled this scene when I heard about a letter a boy wrote to President Obama suggesting that the solution to gun violence was chocolate bullets.  Awe, isn’t that sweet. And whaddya know,  Joe [...]

It’s a Gay Gay Gay Gay World

Globe

  There is so much news from the LGBT community these days.  But first, the news you don’t hear about. The the war between Gays and Queers.  It’s kinda like the war between Vampires and Lycans. It’s going on underneath the surface but you’d never know.  And since there’s no Q in LGBT, I guess [...]

When Annie Couldn’t Get Her Protection

Annie Couldn't get her Gun

Annie woke up one morning with a start, a sense of foreboding, downright dread. She realized she was in danger. She had been living without “protection.” We are of course talking about her constitutionally enshrined right to “protection.” I mean really, every woman should have a right to “protection,” right? What would she do if a [...]

I’m Afraid of Naomi Wolf

Scene in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf

 Well, the election is over and everyone has moved on. The Republicans are evaluating their election strategy while learning to accept they will have to negotiate with the President in order to accomplish the nation’s business.  Feminist writer Naomi Wolf has a new biography … of sorts.  It’s not so much about her as about her (OK [...]

Single White Female

They elected Obama. They're destroying America

Remember “The Blame Game?”  That’s when one party blames the other for the country’s problems, unless they actually did cause the problems and then it means “tag, you’re it, no tag-backs, nah-nah, nah, nah-nah.Looser!” But who do you blame when you loose an election that you were so sure you were going to win that [...]

Disturbance in the Force

Vader Cheney looks on while Smiling Joe debates.

  Joe Biden has some great chops.  If you thought your daughter’s braces set you back, wait until you’re sixty and try to get what Joe’s got.  Anyone with that smile would show it off.  It would become an annoying habit.  And apparently, it’s really annoyed Vice President Dick Cheney. Unfortunately, the name “Tricky Dick” [...]

Numb and Number(er)

romney-ryan

Now that the Republican ticket is receiving free government protection from the Secret Service (don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll cut off that expense when they win), the candidates have been given code names. What’s your pick? Mine are “The President” and “Altar Boy.” Let’s face it, Romney looks like Joe President (slightly stiff) action figure. [...]
