I am a conservative, libertarian constitutionalist, and a staunch defender of free speech, regardless of ideology or IQ. Always let stupid people talk. It makes them easier to identify.

Leaving our children as free as our parents left us is a war without end. Best we quit whining about it, and get to fighting it.

Just how does converting the IRS to a militarized force targeting American citizens NOT violate the Posse Comitatus Act?! Never mind. I keep forgetting that Oceania has always been at war with East Asia.

One thing I hate about carrying on multiple chat threads is when i'm trying to unmute myself on a Teams call, and a Teams chat notification bubble keeps popping up and covering the unmute button. Shitty Microsoft design decision () #326,117,304

I just devoured 4 overloaded tacos, like some kind of wild animal.. I'm not ashamed, they were delicious.

The world tends to categorize people by the things they do for money. It requires a bit more discovery, but I prefer to judge a person by the things he does for free.

Sitting in an airport lounge with ESPN on the TV, all I can wonder is, "How big a douchebag do you have to be to get a gig as a talking head on a sports opinion show?"

"Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible."

My friend who killed himself the other day. Check on your people folks!

The "Ghost of Kyiv" thing is excellent propaganda when aimed at western countries, a valiant modern warrior in his "Iron Eagle" fighting against insurmountable odds to defend his homeland. It's like it was written to tug GenX heart strings perfectly, the lone warrior in the skies for the latchkey generation. Its video games, it's Tom Cruise asking for Goose to help him beyond the grave. Mainstream news outlets are pumping out this story.

Everytime something like this happens on the world stage recruiting goes up in the United States military. That old "God and Country" thing is still very alive in a rural America that has very obviously been hurt badly by wars.

Farm kids go to war and farm kids die, then the farm goes to the bank when the farmer dies. Then the farms are bought by big corporations. If you do any travelling through the western United States you can see abandoned farm houses sitting in the middle of their old families acreage because it wasn't cost efficient to tear them down, surrounded by thousands of acres of crops planted and harvested by GPS equipped equipment, the fences all long gone, the windows broken.

Imho the United States needs to let the world determine it's own fate. Exporting "freedom" hasn't been very effective. The juice isn't worth the squeeze.

Shocking picture of Kiev after being Bombed by Russia.

Just kidding this is a peaceful protest in America.
