Last Week Tonight: Mike Pence

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on Vice President Mike Pence. The Drumpf is bad enough. Pence is almost worse, but that’s like comparing dying in a fire to dying in a building collapse.

His pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, just signed a book deal. That shows that hard work has nothing to do with publishing a book. It’s all about who you know and who is willing to do the P. R. for you. The amount of remedial reading saturating the market proves it.

On a side note, Mike Pence must have done an online course on evading and avoiding questions, which seems to have been attended by a few bloggers out there. Just sayin’.


Full Frontal Thursday: Law & Disorder?

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the firing of Rex Tillerson and how his replacement, Mike Pompeo, isn’t going to be any more effective than good ol’ Rexy-boy.

She also talks about Cy Vance, a Manhattan-based prosecutor with a mixed-grade report card, and points out the facts that prosecutors can essentially do whatever the fuck they want because it’s technically “legal.”

Last Week Tonight: Cryptocurrencies

In this latest installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, the coders creating same, and how “pump and dump” isn’t unique to this latest get-rich-quick scheme. Interesting information.

Full Frontal Thursday: The Cult of the NRA

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam gets some anti-gun hysteria out of her system and then makes sense about how people conflate hatred and racism with mental illness.

I’m a current gun owner and a former member of the NRA. I’ve stated in past posts that the NRA is an erstwhile cult; those posts were overlooked for whatever reason. This topic is something that I’m very familiar with, and have personal experience dealing with.

It’s a shame that people seem to be more interested in getting half-assed information from those who can’t tell the difference between their rectal orifices and a crater. Armchair “warriors” flaming on others in chatrooms, on message boards, and in the comment sections of any social media outlet.


Midweek Musings: International Women’s Day (Re-blogged)

International Women’s Day is on a Thursday this year. I decided to post my “Midweek Musings” from last year about this day.


Eyrie Of An Aries

Today is International Women’s Day, and March is Women’s History Month. What, if anything, do these observances mean to myself and other women around the world? It depends on who you ask, where that person resides, and what their perspectives and experiences are. When I talk with others, I look for common ground and relatable experiences to initiate dialogue. Then, if I find a difference in personal experiences between myself and another, I ask questions in an attempt to learn about and understand that person’s unique experiences. The funny thing about this is, even the most basic questions that I ask of others never really get answered! This makes it difficult to know where another person is coming from, and makes it virtually impossible to meet them halfway with anything.

These hiccups in communication mostly occur in online interactions, especially when there are differences in language and culture…

Drunk History Lessons

Here are a few short, “Drunk History” lessons. I love that show.

Last Week Tonight: NRA-TV

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver educates us on a little-known internet channel called “NRA Television.” I’d only heard about it over the past couple of days.

I used to be a member of the National Rifle Association. I had a 3-year membership 20 years ago. Propaganda delivered to my mailbox on a weekly basis. I had a three-inch stack of their ridiculous bumper-stickers by the time I quit, which I donated to the local Army National Guard office.

This bears repeating: The NRA is not a gun-rights organization, looking out for the interests of gun owners in America. Colion Noir, their token Black representative, should really take a closer look at the history of the NRA. He won’t because they pay him too well. Paid shills tend to ignore the obvious facts, much like Omarosa did.

Friday Fun: Undeniable Facts (Re-blogged)

This post warranted a re-blog while I work on some future ones.

Eyrie Of An Aries

Instead of the usual “Five on Friday” post, I wanted to publish a few thought-provoking quotes inspired by casual observations about personal interactions. It would be nice if they evoked genuine conversation.

I’m not holding my breath.

Test #2 Completed

I completed another test the other day. Data has been compiled and is being compared.

My suspicions have been confirmed, but one more test will be conducted solely for shits and giggles.

As if there was any doubt in the first place.

Again, no surprise. Predictable, per usual.

It is to laugh.


Last Week Tonight: Italian Election

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver points out the fact that America isn’t the only country dealing with conspiracy theories and neo-fascism when it comes to politics and elections. That shithole country, Italy, is the just latest one to do so.
