Mark Twain Birthday Blasphamy Quotes

"The gods offer no rewards for intellect. There was never one yet that showed any interest in it..."

 'the swindle of life and the treachery of a God that can create disease and misery and crime--create things that men would be condemned for creating--that men would be ashamed to create'

"So much blood has been shed by the Church because of an omission from the Gospel: "Ye shall be indifferent as to what your neighbor's religion is." Not merely tolerant of it, but indifferent to it. Divinity is claimed for many religions; but no religion is great enough or divine enough to add that new law to its code."
"The best minds will tell you that when a man has begotten a child he is morally bound to tenderly care for it, protect it from hurt, shielf it from disease, clothe it, feed it, bear with its waywardness, lay no hand upon it save in kindness and for its own good, and never in any case inflict upon it a wanton cruelty. God's treatment of his earthly children, every day and every night, is the exact opposite of all that, yet those best minds warmly justify these crimes, condone them, excuse them, and indignantly refuse to regard them as crimes at all, when he commits them. Your country and mine is an interesting one, but there is nothing there that is half so interesting as the human mind."

"Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion--several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven....The higher animals have no religion. And we are told that they are going to be left out in the Hereafter. I wonder why? It seems questionable taste."

"Monarchies, aristocracies, and religions....there was never a country where the majority of the people were in their secret hearts loyal to any of these institutions."

"I was educated, I was trained, I was a Presbyterian and I knew how these things are done. I knew that in Biblical times if a man committed a sin the extermination of the whole surrounding nation--cattle and all--was likely to happen. I knew that Providence was not particular about the rest, so that He got somebody connected with the one He was after."
"a God who could make good children as easily a bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave is angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell--mouths mercy, and invented hell--mouths Golden Rules and foregiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!"

The Occupy Lincoln movement is still camped out on Centennial Mall.  With no talk of forcing them out.  Yes, that's right, the police are simply 'allowing' them to exercise their rights, and as a result no bankers have been lynched, no plagues have erupted from the supposedly bad sanitation, no last king has been strangled with the entails of the last priest.  Everything is fine, and quiet here as ever.  Lincoln cops are decent folk, so far as cops go, disinclined to see themselves as Frank Miller style supermen in a world where everyone outside the badge is a predator or a parasite.  Good folk, like I said. 

There's something going on here.  I won't make any soon to be tired comparisons to the sixties because; no, nobody wants that, except to say that there is a similar perception of imperial nakedness within the hierarchial worldview.   It is a worldview that is ever more increasingly held in contempt; not hated with adolescent passion, as was the case with the sixties counterculture (Read: The pop culture strawman of it.) but simple contempt.  It is seen as pathetic, juvenile.  It goes without saying that being looked down upon with a sneer is far more poisonous to authoritarianism than being looked up to with rage.  And they know it.

Tales From North Platte

Nothing too sordid while I've been here; a hay truck spilled three bales at the south end of the Poplar Street Viaduct, shut down East 6th for a couple of hours, made the front page of the paper, that's about all.  Oh, and my sister is working at My Ma's liquor store (more or less) while still maintaining minimal contact. There's a few bars that I am now welcome in again after being previously exiled for various reasons. Oh, and last night I saw a 25 year old man trade sex talk with a 16 year old girl.  That's all there is to report.

True Patriots Have Pink Floyd Pig For Thanksgiving Turkey

Pamela Geller is warning us against secret Muslim meat this holiday...

Did you know that the turkey you're going to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day this Thursday is probably halal? If it's a Butterball turkey, then it certainly is -- whether you like it or not.
In my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, I report at length on the meat industry's halal scandal: its established practice of not separating halal meat from non-halal meat, and not labeling halal meat as such. And back in October 2010, I reported more little-noted but explosive new revelations: that much of the meat in Europe and the United States is being processed as halal without the knowledge of the non-Muslim consumers who buy it.

I think it's safe to say that this is equivalent to Michelle Malkin's Racheal Ray terrorist scarf moment, Geller, who was the sparkplug behind last year's 'Ground Zero Mosque' kerfufle. has now stated something so batfuck stupid as to expose herself beyond doubt as a bad faith actor. This woman is knowingly scamming the Common Clay of the New West for fun and profit. And they for their part are at least half-consciously willing to let themselves be scammed. They will believe anything that tells them they are heroically besieged because they are addicted to feeling besieged, and are quite willing to deliberately shut off any adult thought or reasoning that might prevent them from getting their sweet sweet hit of outrage. I for my part am unable to think of what the rest of us can do about it, except to laugh at them so loudly that they cannot help but to hear us over the sound of their own media bubble telling them how brave, pure, and masculine they are for eating bullshit.

Quick Note

"To be fair, I don’t think gender explains everything about the Penn State scandal. But I do think it’s noteworthy that this story only involves men. These Penn State college football men make up a very powerful club, one with lots of prestige, influence, and money. I’ll add that the Catholic Church—infamous for its own pattern of harboring pedophiles—is also an old boys' club, albeit one of a very different sort. There seems to be something distinctly masculine about the type of cowardice that allows one to prioritize loyalty to powerful institutions and friends over protecting children."

I would say that, however distinctively masculine this trait may be, it is also indirect and socially constructed.   Institutions have historically been controlled by men, so naturally we men are taught that loyalty is central to manhood and by far the most important virtue.  In institutions where women have gained a foothold this conceit has been reduced to expressing itself in a somewhat backhanded, weaselly manner, pious concerns about 'stability' or 'morale' or some such.  But of course the Catholic Church and football coaches have no need to play that game, their realms are just as absolutely dominated by men as they have always been and shall forever be.  so the tendency there is to state rather more directly that there is nothing worse thing a man can be than disloyal. (or, an 'infidel', if you want to give it a spiritual flourish)  No matter what godawful thing you can think of that people have done to each other, there is no act of murder, rape or torture that is worse than treason towards the institution, the boss, the Papa.  The chauvinists' level of bluntness in saying so is somewhat refreshing,  especially if he is encased  in some patriarchal hierarchy, such as the RCC or the ole ballclub, that is proudly dedicated to preventing accountability.

Keystone XL: Was That Really so Hard?: Or, the Travesty of Political Politicians

I suspect the ultimate cause of all this drama was that Transcanada wanted to maintain a perception of telling states where it was putting it's next pipeline would go as opposed to one of asking them if they could.  It's the same old story of big business ego, wanting to see itself as existing on a higher plane above the vulgarities of democracy and rights.  Thank goodness there aren't any more cases of that in the current news. 

In related news, there's been some talk about President Obama's decision to delay a decision on the pipeline being a weak-willed pander.  "You cannot alienate the environmentalists if you're the Democratic president during an election year. Of course, he made a political decision." -Howard Dean  

The correct answer to this charge is; yes, of course it is, what of it?  In our system of government it is perfectly common for the interests of the many and the ambitions of the powerful to coincide.  That's the entire point of democracy, the definition of it, and would seem to be its most obvious blessing.  Yet there's an old puritanical strain in American thought that considers proper decisions to be acts of medieval penance.  So that those choices which anger the least and please the most are automatically wrong for precisely that reason.  It is forbidden to ponder that the path of least resistance could ever be the morally correct one, because morality and ease are in eternal war against each other, and everything that everyone does is a cosmic choice between one side or the other.  A real leader makes life more poetic by deliberately choosing the path of struggle and division.  
That's what old Yankee moralism tells you, anyway.  Joshua D. Beran says, fuck that shit.  The pipeline is being moved out of the Sandhills.  We got what we wanted.  We won.  The progressive and environmentally concerned people of Nebraska won, and not just us of course.  We won by sharing our common interest with people who normally have knee-jerk self-identity reactions against anything 'liberal'.  So that Nebraska won, democracy won, the people won.  It's a good day.  Be happy.  Engage yourself in pleasure.  Have some fucking ice cream. It's November and there hasn't even been a blizzard yet.  It's all good y'all.

State Senator Tony Fulton, who is generally in the business of being more anti-abortion than  you, plans to introduce a bill requiring the pledge of allegiance to begin every K-12 school day for all children. 

On this matter I have couple things to address to the socially conservative authoritarians most likely to support this measure. 

1.  Love of home, if not real true patriotism as you would define it, is at some level instinctive.  You yourselves have never consciously chosen to love your country.  Therefore you have no right to claim yourselves to be more  courageous, loyal, or heroic than the imaginary elitist strawmen who  have supposedly chosen not to love their country.  No amount of Red White and Blue peacocking on your part, even covered with the false dignity of official law, will ever change this. 

2.  Authoritarians generally imagine that there is a universal instinct for a narrowly defined proper middle class American life; with heterosexual marriage, 2-4 children, big car, house in the suburbs, etc; and that those who deviate from this path are only denying their own instincts out of petulant rebellion.  Yet this pledge bill, and others like it, assume that there is no human nature; that children are blank slates who would have no concept of loyalty or homeland unless these ideas were ostentatiously imposed on them at every public opportunity.  

The contradiction is apparent to all who care to look, and perhaps the answer between one or the other depends on whatever makes you feel stronger and more indispensable at the moment.

3 I'm not sure you understand just how fantastic a thing this bill really is.  It is not only a matter-of-fact claim that love for a thing can be taught, but a legal demand that it be taught.  This digs a hell of a lot deeper into 
Nietzscheian godman truth invention then I'd think common, salt of the earth, anti-elitist true Americans like yourselves would be comfortable with.

4.  You will die.  Don't be insulted. Yes I know that you knew that.  I just don't think you grasp the full implications.  What I mean is, your great-grandchildren will not look upon you with the slightest bit of awe or devotion.  You will be a stranger to them.  You can tell yourself that there is a  single, true Americanism transcending time and place; with a single, true, eternal interpretation of liberty  and the constitution and patriotism and the flag and everything else that goes along with it.  You can tell yourself that your nation is a natural, biological thing.  That as such it is endowed with a single innate personality (which can only possibly be changed by some unnatural corruption)  throughout it's lifetime just like a person is,  that a part of you can live beyond your mortal self if you submit to this biological nation, make garish displays of loyalty to it, and dictate to others what the correct standards of loyalty shall forever be.  You can tell yourself all of this, but you can't make it so, and deep down I think you know that as well as I.  A hundred years from now, we will be just as alien to the people occupying the exact same physical space we sit in today as modern Aborigines are to us.  And there ain't a damned thing, Under God, that you can do about it.

What Would the Antonym of Moving be?

Ahh, unaffecting, that seems about right.  Because I really don't think that submitting to an unquestionably good 'Great Father' who must be obeyed will be of any help at all in preventing sexual abuse.  In fact there are dozens of cases of this attitude being if not the cause of the abuse itself than at least the cause of it being carefully ignored and allowed to fester.  The incident at Penn State, with the feudalistic reporting of trouble to "Joe PA" instead of the police, is just the most obvious example.

And PS. NU assistant coach Ron Broown is a fucking Nazi with no ability to conceive of such a thing as abuse of power, so why the hell is anyone turning to him for wisdom and edification?

Well, Minor Elections Went Well, so That's Nice.

Arizonans booted out an anti (ILLEGAL!!!) immigrant criminal shyster known for his involvement in college bowl game scams and openly chillin with some Nazis, among other things. 

The people of Ohio voted to restore collective bargaining rights for various public employees.  Good good, still let the attacks on union rights in Ohio, Wisconsin, et. al. serve as a reminder of what happens when you let the cranks hog the polls in "off year" election people. 

Last but not least, the people of Mississippi have shown that, however morally opposed to abortion they may be, they are still able to see the idea of a fertilized egg being just as human as you or me for the absurdity that it is.   At least in the privacy of the ballot box.    This referendum was the sort of thing you see a lot of in small, conservative states.  Symbolic governance.   An act of sticking a wedge into a wedge, inventing a controversy tangentially related to some newly acknowledged 'special right' or social trend which conservatives oppose and then presenting this newly invented wedge as the ultimate means of proving that one is truly a good Real American conservative on the proper side of the larger issue.  This time, in Mississippi, it didn't work.   I'm sure they'll try again. 

The most common feminist explanations I've seen for opposition to Roe v. Wade is that abortion is seen as threatening to male power for two reasons.  One explanation is the old homunculus idea, that the sperm is the baby, just in tiny form, and doesn't fertilize the egg so much as it homesteads the egg, that the woman is only the incubator for the mans baby that he went through the real work of creating. This is obvious horseshit.  Ask anyone if they believe it and they would rightfully take it as an insult to their intelligence.  Still the homunculus is the central premise behind the Vatican's ur-opposition to abortion, and if you truly believe that human life should be legally declared to begin at fertilization than you are in fact publicly declaring yourself to be that stupid and demanding that The State itself should be as stupid as you.

 Another explanation is that a swollen belly is seen as a penis flag;  incontrovertible proof that this or that fellow has achieved at least one sexual 'conquest'.  This obviously delves into ancient ideas of men being superior overall because of our superior physical strength. 

Or maybe this is all just ivory tower babel.  Sometimes I'm tempted to think so myself.  But then I find myself righted by my unceasing information binge.  Things like the counter-editorial in yesterday's 'USA TODAY' in favor of the Mississippi personhood law, in which Gualberto Jones just lets it hang out in the second sentence.

Good editorial writer this guy.  He certainly knows how to cut straight through to the bone within a confined space.  And there you have you have it children.  Not being able to force a woman to carry the baby your dick imposed upon her is as bad as having no dick at all.  And this isn't coming from the assistant professor of lesbian studies at Morehead Sate, but the horse's own mouth.  Here then, I'm sure you'd agree, is as good a place as any from which to grab this rambling post of mine by the tip and cut it off at the base.   Good bye.

Euro Zone Kerfuckery Brings Some Good News

Berlusconi out. 

Somewhat bittersweet, perhaps, since it's hard not to feel a wry, blackhearted admiration for this old man and his ability to both continue to desire and attain 'women' in their late teens.  Still it would of course be deeply wrong to actually consider him a great guy for such proclivities.  And in the main this lecherous, criminal, corrupt, borderline tyrannical snake has been an absolute cancer for both his own country and the larger Western world.

This time stay gone you oily son of a bitch.  And fuck AC Milan.

The Return of Chrisma Woman

She seems to have been in the hospital for awhile.  She's in a wheelchair now, permenently or not I don't know.  And her hair has been done up in a way that makes her look somewhat disturbed.  Some excripts from the latest newsletter. 

"In 1990 We Proposed All Immigrant Children Receive English For A Year"

"Chinese have
Own moniters for surveillance items sold to police
Flex compressor for cascade of outages
Wind cannon in semis to mimc tornados

Microwave pistols for silent end of Americans

Gasing Americans while asleep with propane like containers at walmart

Illegal sorting of mail near walmarts to throw away paychecks

Moslems have

Darted kidney infections in Europe and America

Pretended to be Mexicans to taint at caneries with botulism. 

Used nanos to self inflict and inflict other Americans

Moslem Mr. Icain helped do away with heads of companies and put communist films in Blockbuster video stores across the nation. 

10'000 Iranians hacked into Wall Street and Nasdaq for years; they quit. 

Terrorists of Barnes and Nobels sells 'Osama' book not made by a German American but by Moslem terrorists that call Osama a celebrity.

In navy to use laser on Americans on shore.   

Russians have

Impersonated police and abducted thousands of Catholic college women. 

Used near invisible darts to send lethal stings on Americans

Posed as feral army corp of engineers to flood open reservoirs to flood our major rivers making nuclear reactors at risk and non working

Russian women give potent drug in water to seduce married EU, military, and Europe's leaders. 

Drug dealers have

Taken jobs at customs smoking dope while at the job obviously letting gangster drug dealers into America

Own illegal cremations so evidence of homiciders are not found

Transpol in Europe don't check for contra ban between countries

All gays use pot and have taken military posts to not understand when Moslems in military were likely to do treason

Pose as county attorneys to not want truth in news so their idea of 'pot is a healthy medicinal' is read about in newspapers. 


Americans have never had hordes communists or Moslem terrorists in the United States until South African Obama became president. 

Jesus is coming to let only the kind live past the comet timing. 

Pennies From Heaven Day

Why have a little girls dress up as whores and little boys as monsters?  It is more pleasent to dress as angels. 

Rename the last day of October 'Pennies from Heaven Day"  Children dress up as angels and go door to door to state "Pennies from Heaven" to the one who opens the door.  The adult gives a penny or so to the child.  The next day the pennies arw given to weak children in the community. 

There's too many spooky stories on TV.  They only depress and interest humans to do wrong.  Sometimes nanoers have done self inflictions after a spooky show. 

Join up, wear a rosary, magnesium oil and don't masturbate.  State master garlic, wear garlic in pockets, sew undies to undershirt in the front and have ice in a cup next to bed.  Put white crosses up at entryways, head of bed and top of page.  Put a log lock on doors or roary on door knobs.  Let Christ into your life to heal illness, communications and advise as well.  Meet in a library.  Consider using a megaphone on a cloudy day.
