President Trump said he likely will support a congressional effort to end the federal ban on marijuana, a major step that would reshape the pot industry and end the threat of a Justice Department crackdown. Trump’s remarks put him sharply at odds with Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions on the issue. The bill in question, pushed […]
Anthony Bourdain, the gifted chef, storyteller, drug-afficionado, and bipolar writer – who took TV viewers around the world to explore culture, cuisine and the human condition for two decades – has died by his own hand. He was 61.
HEADLINE: “Jeff Sessions Puts Death Penalty In Play” . You can’t “put the death penalty in play”. It’s not a puck, dropped onto the table for morons to bat around in a life-and-death game of air-hockey. . You can stupidly forget that this isn’t a theocracy of morons, but a democracy in which the DP […]
Protagonists need a goal, a mountain to cross. (KL) We’re biologically designed to be egocentric. Thus survival is not a problem, it’s a given. It’s also why this conversation makes my left eye twitch: KL: So what is your protagonist’s goal? Writer: To survive. KL: *face palm* Here’s the deal. We ALL have a goal […]
Two young women who lived in the same house and who both had an infant son came to Solomon for a judgment. One of the women claimed that the other, after accidentally smothering her own son while sleeping, had exchanged the two children to make it appear that the living child was hers. The other […]

All a gang has to do I take over the elevators and voila! Everyone pays a toll to enter their own flat. I’m not wrong. […]
Socialism NEVER works. In practice, socialism didn’t work. It didn’t work in Russia, China, North Korea, etc etc etc. But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy. Each of these nations has had to ‘break’ socialism to keep their […]
I really don’t give one fuck what people are “offended by”. They need to pull up their panties and suck it up. Back in my day, the one whinging was the one that was bullied. The more they whine, the more they get hit until, finally, they learn to keep their whiny little bitch-hole shut.
Science Fiction Demonizes ‘Our’ Opponents I’d like to stray from the trend in most science fiction that I feel is over played and possibly immoral. The ‘other’ or the ‘enemy’ has been portrayed as faceless automatons that ‘we’ can indiscriminately blast to smithereens. In I, Robot there are the hoards of robots, red ones target […]
