commented on The Treaty of Versailles Almost Never Comes Up During Gay Sex
Hey, if the U.S. and Europe had taken the Gay position on the Treaty of Versailles, there may not have been a reason for WWII.
And if Republicans and Neo-Liberals hadn't rejected Keynes economic policies we might not have suffered through all the recessions since Republicans got a strangle hold on national politics.
Keynes gay ass was awesome!

A tornado doesn't care how "self-motivated" you are.
Cancer doesn't care how "self-motivated" you are.
A hurricane doesn't care how "self-motivated" you are.
Nor does any number of outside factors and tragedies -- the safety net is there for even the "self-motivated".
commented on Slog Bible Study: Revelation 19:17-18
We're all going to die, that's the message, folks.
Not a particularly original message, pretty obvious.
But still, if you want the sky god to give you ice cream in heaven you'd better behave now: no mixed fibers in clothing, but you can sell your daughter into slavery. So there's that.
commented on Nine Years Ago Today, Pat Tillman Was Killed in Afghanistan
I knew Pat's brother fairly well before Pat's death, and all the brothers were/are handsome, funny, bright, salt-of-the-earth nice guys, if risk takers.
Damn the Bush administration warmongers, and the good men and women they murdered for no good reason.

Yeah, when I get tired of guy sport talk at parties I ask (if they're talking about a football team) "Is that a basketball team?"
And vice versa.
For some reason, it shuts 'em all up.
commented on This Morning's NYT Book Review
Yeah, I've had the assholes who ask if they can "pray for me" and try to force me into their prayer-a-thon.
Yeah you can pray for me all you want, but somewhere else, asshole.
You can do a rain dance if you want, or sacrifice a bull to Mithras, I don't give a crap.
But leave me out of your superstitious booga booga rituals.
