A great rant on Feminist Current

A report on the Vancouver Dyke March by Danielle Cormier.

She writes that lesbians, in the name of “inclusivity”, are being excluded from their own spaces & events from trans activists & their allies.  She questions why this is happening only to lesbians & not to gay men, nor to transmen.  & why nobody seems to care.

I personally find it ironic that the official alphabet soup alliance promoting “inclusivity” would exclude anyone at all.  Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?

Nothing Alters the Psychology of Dictatorship

Hart’s description’s of the dictator does indeed describe trump & his first fifteen months in office.  But the reason WHY trump was allowed to get ANYWHERE near the GOP presidential election goes back to Reagan in the 1960’s.  Allowing a half-baked B-movie actor to become the Governor of California was the first step in our demise as a great nation.

But this is a really good read & I suggest you read it.  We are not in a good place … even if trump doesn’t last until 2020, the damage he has wrought is real & lasting.  & he didn’t start this shit.  It started over FIFTY YEARS AGO.  It’s been brewing a long time, children.

The assault on our educational system started with Reagan.  The assault on everything started with Reagan.  The idea that if you give huge tax breaks to the richest of the rich, then prosperity would follow would everyone else … on a national level, that started with Reagan.  Look around you.  How does almost forty years of this BS look to you?  I live in Buffalo.  This used to be a beautiful city.  & don’t give me that “NY & its high taxes” crapola to me!  Taxes are what you pay so that you live in a civilized place!  So that everyone has a nice place to live!  Not just the rich!

Two generations have grown up since 1980.  They’re the ones ripe for totalitarian rule.  They’ve never seen a properly functioning government.  One with proper taxes and one that cares about its people.  They want somebody to step in & be the fucking adult.  Build the bridges & fix the roads.  Make the trains run on time.   End student debt.  Medicare for all.  I personally think they would welcome Pennywise if he delivered these things.  Look at all the idiots who voted for trump & he hasn’t delivered shit.

I’m an old woman, a crone.  I voted in my first presidential election in 1980 & no, I did not vote for Reagan!  But I knew he was going to win.  & it’s been downhill ever since.  I would really like to see a turnaround in this country before I die.  I figure I might have another twenty or thirty years.  I rarely look into my crystal ball but … I am not all that optimistic about what we, as Americans, are facing.   Honestly, I do not like the looks of what I see at all.

Padre Steve's World: Resist the Beginning, Consider the End

NPG x25404; Sir Basil Henry Liddell Hart by Howard Coster B. H. Liddell-Hart

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,

A couple of weeks ago I re-read the short but poignant little but by the British military historian B.H. Liddell-Hart entitled Why Don’t We Learn from History. The book was written in not long before his death in 1970 and it is good quite good. It deals with a number of issues, including the conflict between history and propaganda; or when faith, especially religious faith as treated as historic or scientific fact; and when propaganda or faith is preached as if it were history, if it were truth. In doing this he also contrasted democracy and lure of totalitarianism.

Liddell-Hart was a realist, especially about democracy and totalitarianism. He served on the Western Front in the First World War and was wounded in a German gas attack. Between the wars he was one of the theorists of armored warfare and the…

It’s Not a F*ckng Movie!

I read this the other day & it pissed me right the fuck off.  It came up on my Facebook feed a few minutes ago & triggered my rage again.  It’s not like the right-wing trolls that have been attacking the Parkland kids & their political activism.  This attack is something different. It paints them as “Hunger Games” characters, as not-quite-real-made-for-the-screen personas that are going to have a “Hollywood ending”.


It’s so fucking true, the liberals are as bad as the conservatives.  STFU already!

Here’s the link to the article that’s pissing me off:
