@1 - Ugh. There's nothing worse than so-called progressives looking at the race to the bottom with workers in this country and nodding in approval.

Brendan writes like a 1990's scriptwriter thinks a 1990's hacker sounds. How did I not notice how terrible this guy is before today?
Feb 10, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on Three-Word Theater Reviews.
This is literally the worst article I've ever read.

@4 - in the eyes of Stranger staff, who think digs at RHCP are 'topical' 'relevant' or 'funny,' it may as well be.
Feb 10, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on Ideology Today: Picturing Positive Black People.
Yes, I'm sure the millions of black men languishing in prison really share your desire to perpetuate more negative African American stereotypes.
Feb 10, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on Slog Poll: Will You Read Lena Dunham's Book?.
@19 - yes, that was the day I decided to let my New Yorker subscription lapse. It wasn't all Dunham's fault though - the precipitous decline in quality over the last five years made the decision one that was a long time coming. But having this hack in the pages of what was once America's last great national magazine was definitely the straw that broke the camel's back.

But the rise of Dunham does provide one valuable lesson - kids, unless your parents know people, you're not going to make any money in a creative field.
Jan 29, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on Snowden Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize.
Only a racist would say that Obama didn't deserve the prize - a black man won the presidency in a country where black men are literally second class citizens. Where black men were regularly lynched - where black men are killed with impunity on the streets all over the country.

So fuck off, no, Obama absolutely deserved the prize. Snowden stole data and fucked off to the protectorate of a literal tyrant, rather than a president who is only a tyrant in the eyes of bitcoin enthusiasts.
Jan 28, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on To Queers Bitching About Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
@raku - hey asshole - the whiny internet social justice tumblr warrior we hate? That's not a stereotype, that's you. And you embarrass the rest of us because some people have actual work to do. So shut the fuck up, you whiny little asshole, and pick up a phone. Make some cause some money. Start your own fucking cause - maybe 'Whiny Tumblr Enthusiasts For Truth?' - why don't you promote some of these queer artists you keep talking about, that apparently have been rapping about being queer for 20 years? (Hey, you said they were in this game twice as long as Macklemore). Why not post links to Mykki Blanco (, or House of Ladosha ( Why not be a positive force instead of a non-stop whine machine about a guy who made a legit, earnest attempt about causes that matter?

As it stands now, you're worse than useless.
Jan 28, 2014 johnjjeeves commented on Kid on a Judd.
That kid on that piece of art is the best thing that ever happened in that miserable exhibit.

Every last one of you was at least once in your life a screechy horrible little shit, no matter what mummy and daddy told you in the revisionist history of your early years. If you're still upset at the kids, or the parents (and god knows you'd have to be an idiot to be so) just remember you have no idea what happened to that kid after they got home. Maybe the mother made him kneel on rice for two hours? Maybe the father beat him so badly that he developed a stutter. Feel better yet about all those awful parents and awful children that neither you nor anyone you know was once like?

@1 - LMGTFY:
"Although there is no constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders, there is a vague grant of "executive power" given in Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, and furthered by the declaration "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" made in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5. Most executive orders use these Constitutional reasonings as the authorization allowing for their issuance to be justified as part of the President's sworn duties, the intent being to help direct officers of the U.S. Executive carry out their delegated duties as well as the normal operations of the federal government: the consequence of failing to comply possibly being the removal from office."

Obama currently has used fewer executive orders than every 20th century President except for Bush the senior (who only served one term) and Ford (who barely served half). Here's hoping that our president can now govern the country because Congress has so thoroughly dedicated itself to doing nothing.

So yes, Scary Kenyan Socialist Blah Nazi President Commandant Obama has every legal, historical, and moral right to issue and govern via executive order. Get the fuck over it.
