Sadly, under 40% of Texas is vaccinated

This illustration works in a couple different ways. How stupid the “natural immunity” crowd is, proving that Dr. Toupée Paul went into politics in Kentucky because he is a shitty doctor. He makes Dr. Nicke Riviera a Nobel winner. The … Continue reading

1981: Bobby Sands dies from hunger strike

I remember this happening 40 years ago since we didn’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the Midwest. St. Patrick’s Day is the Midwest’s preferred binge-drinking holiday. Sands’ death was a tragic event and in its immediacy, more fighting and killing … Continue reading

1971: NPR begins with All Things Considered

Too many obituaries this week! Three great people to celebrate and another whose career got screwed over. By the way, I did listen to the first new episode of On the Media minus Bob and Brooke did address it. Unfortunately, she … Continue reading

NIMBY forces won

Before I left for vacation, we had an election on a series of propositions (aka governments not doing their job by blaming the electorate) and I wasn’t allowed to vote in anything because I live in unincorporated Pflugerville. The big … Continue reading

What an encounter with a “kid” giant could be like

I need to keep this comic strip in mind since I was probably just as cruel to ants. It also brings up the debate about nature v. nurture regarding alignments in D&D, are most young giants (hill, frost, fire and … Continue reading

Virtual SXSW underway

Last year it was cancelled (hooray!). This year they found a way to rip people off by making them pay probably outrageous amounts to “attend” via streaming and/or disappointing Zoom conferences. There’s a sucker born every minute, especially into believing … Continue reading

Ding dong Rush Limbaugh is dead!

Ding dong Rush is dead! Flush that turd down the head! At least Death is apolitical and it couldn’t have happened to a bigger asshole. To those who say you shouldn’t speak ill of the dead, go screw yourself! He … Continue reading

Lincoln’s birthday is a holiday I miss

Today is a day I miss being in grade school. Sure the weather around this time in Illinois sucked because February is Winter’s last big push to be awful but there were two things to look forward to. First was … Continue reading

Adios Gina…you dumbass

The Internet was definitely abuzz over Gina Carano’s firing from The Mandalorian which is a shame since the ongoing second impeachment of Orange Foolius is more pressing. However, there’s a good explanation for why she posted such incredibly false, blatant lies … Continue reading

Amerikkka storms the Capitol

Besides MAGAts, I also like the term Y’all Qeda for these losers. Comedian Moshe Kasher pointed out that our overpriced military and militarized police were overwhelmed by a bunch of assholes with Monster Energy guts and vape breath. Should there be an … Continue reading

Everything is fixed now!

Given Biden’s seven-to-ten point lead, depending upon which poll, voting for him and his GOP Lite agenda will fix everything! I for one did my minimal civic duty by participating in early voting. Oddly, I was only in line for … Continue reading

Sponsored by the dirty cops lobby-union

The billboard demonstrates how dishonest and dirty the police unions are along with their Fascist/GOP allies. Firstly, Austin cut APD’s budget slightly; many felt it wasn’t even a drop in the bucket. Secondly, Austin was the only city that successfully … Continue reading

Covidiots in Wisconsin strike

While driving around on my errands this weekend, I heard on NPR that a bunch of MAGA cheesedicks want to recall the current governor, a Democrat (surprise, surprise). Why? The actions he has been taking to save lives from CV-19, … Continue reading

Today’s mood

This in a nutshell is why America is the most overrated country in History as CV-19 and the elections of shit-for-brains POTUSes (St. Reagan, Dubious Bush and Orange Foolius) have exposed its weaknesses, myths and vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, “dying, old” Europe … Continue reading

I’ve made it around the Sun 52 times

If it weren’t for Jennifer, great friends, great cats, my fun hobbies, my personal stream, my Macs and Austin (none in any particular order), the pandemic would’ve made this the worst birthday since 1985. Speaking of its 35th anniversary, I’ll … Continue reading
