“Madness is rare in individuals—but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.” — Nietzche
Don’t take the calendar for granted | Moderns may laugh at the attempts to rename the months of the year, days of the week and the seconds of the watch but the 21st century has seen widespread and serious attempts to completely rename the pronouns most speakers use in everyday speech — sometimes under penalty of legal punishment. Some, but not all of them, are given below.
HE/SHE HIM/HER HIS/HER HIS/HERS HIMSELF/HERSELF
zie zim zir zis zieself
sie sie hir hirs hirself
ey em eir eirs eirself
ve ver vis vers verself
tey ter tem ters terself

Eyes on Virginia 2020 – Here’s what to expect – So what’s more likely in the near future is the shooting death of a gun owner at his own home during a red flag search, which could initiate a cascade of political violence (i.e., The Boogaloo/The Big Igloo/The Hootenanny).

MOTUS A.D.: Happy New Year 2020! Which reminds me, I’d like to take this opportunity to point out that my prediction as of last January certainly came true: Dozens of dolts will announce they’re running as the Democratic candidate for president of the United States. If you thought the 2016 Republican field was deep, wait till you see that of the 2020 Democrats — it’s more like the Grand Canyon. Not so much because it will be awesome but because it’s a really big hole, populated with a lot of goats.
How Ex-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn fled house arrest in Japan Ghosn, who stands at just under 5-foot-6, climbed into “one of the boxes intended for the transfer of musical instruments,’’ the news station said — possibly a roughly 6-foot-tall double-base case. He was then carted out in the case when the group left, after a “logical time for a concert had passed,’’ MTV said.
Left Democrats and Their In-House Jew-Haters Are Leveraging Anti-Semitic Attacks for Cynical Political Gain | In an America where every criminal gets so many rights that, even if he gets arrested, he does not get adequately punished for murder before he dies of old age anyway, there is no better deterrent than the instant justice of shooting the guy pronto.
The minions of Leftardia have shot everything they can at the current president, short of actual bullets, and achieved nothing, save cementing his popularity, and virtually putting a lock on his re-election next November, while chaining themselves to a concrete-filled floor safe and hurling themselves off a skyscraper.
The cascade of socio-destructive propaganda being pumped out by Western universities these days is catastrophic: cisgenderism, transgenderism, heteronormativity, intersectionality, patriarchy, rape culture, racism, diversity, affirmative action, enrichment and toxic whiteness to mention but a few… a suppurating collection of ideological garbage that is infecting the minds of a whole generation of young people, perhaps several generations.
The Multi-Front Attack on Free Speech | The Thugs. Illegal actions against political opponents, ranging from theft of newspapers to direct assault and battery, have in recent decades become increasingly common on university campuses, and now are well on track to being normalized as aspects of American politics. Incidents of political thuggery are reported almost daily: just the other day, pro-Trump women at an upscale DC hotel were verbally attacked and apparently physically assaulted by members of a wedding party that was heavy on Democrat attendees; including, reportedly, some top officials from the DNC. A pro-free-speech film was reportedly interrupted by two men wearing masks. Interruption of movies they didn’t like was a tactic used by the Nazis prior to their obtaining official censorship powers.
Trump support has, if anything, increased — and not just because of record-low unemployment and an economy that has turned even my once-ossified rural community into a bustle of shopping, office-construction and home-building, with ‘Now Hiring’ signs commonplace. This time I noticed that my same friends always mentioned Trump in contrast to their damnation of California — the nearby ‘stupid’ high-speed rail to nowhere, the staged power shutoffs, the drought-stricken dead trees left untouched in flammable forests, the tens of thousands of homeless even in San Jose, Fresno and Sacramento, the sky-high gas prices, the deadly decrepit roads, the latest illegal-alien felon shielded from ICE. Whatever Trump was, my friends saw him as the opposite of where California is now headed. His combativeness was again not a liability but a plus — especially when it was at the expense of snooty white liberals. ‘He drives them crazy,’ Steve, my friend from second grade, offered.
Let’s go to the videotape! ‘I will stand against you’: Iranian general repels Trump’s GoT-themed attack with own meme — RT World News 3 Nov, 2018 00:32 / Updated 1 year ago.
The leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force, General Qassem Soleimani, has responded to US President Donald Trump’s announcement that ‘sanctions are coming’ with a Game of Thrones-inspired meme of his own. “Come! We are waiting,” Major-General Soleimani, head of the elite Quds Force, wrote on Instagram in Farsi on Friday, under the image depicting him as a White Walker from the hit HBO show. “I am your enemy. Quds Force is your enemy,” added Soleimani. “You start this war, but we will finish it.”
Charlie Munger: The rules of the U.S. Constitutional Convention, totally secret, no vote until the final vote, then just one vote on the whole Constitution. Very clever psychological rules, and if they had a different procedure, everybody would have been pushed into a corner by his own pronouncements and his own oratory and his own … and no recorded votes until the last one. And they got it through by a whisker with those wise rules. We wouldn’t have had the Constitution if our forefathers hadn’t been so psychologically acute, and look at the crowd we got now.
Lest the list go on indefinitely, let me just assure Ms. Snotty Pants [Jennifer Rubin, wanking faux-conservative at WaPo] that almost everything she eats, everything that gets delivered by semis from one place to another and Amazon, every item of clothing she wears, every drop of fuel she pumps, every piece of ore from the ground, the assembly of every car she drives (or is driven in), the construction of her home(s) and the printing of every book she has ever read, was PROBABLY provided by hard-working people who never went to college. Maybe some of them did and good for them! Even family farming has gotten complicated enough that a college education is helpful, if not absolutely necessary.
Meet the Other Major Terrorist Killed in Soleimani Drone Strike | Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Qasem Soleimani wasn’t the only major-league terrorist killed in the drone strike ordered by Donald Trump. Also killed was Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a top Iraqi paramilitary leader whose long, bloody career includes attacks on American and other Western embassies, as well as being a founder of Kata’ib Hezbollah, a group responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq.
