Disturbed Sleep

Posted in Humor, Politics on April 26th, 2015

It seems to me that nobody who has a goal can expect to sleep easily at night, at least nobody who can be reasonably expected to achieve that goal. Nor do people in authority sleep undisturbed at night, not if they accept responsibility as the price of their authority.

No, the question which the answer to best defines them is not whether something keeps them up at night. It is what exactly does so. Just as a person’s strength can be gauged by the quality of their enemies, a person’s character and worth may be judged by their worries and fears.

Steam Pressure

Posted in Society on April 26th, 2015

I’m fond of steampunk and I’m fond corsetry. Actually, it’s quite possible that my fondness for steampunk is partially because of its intersectionality with corsetry. So, when I come across something like Kay Morgan’s steampunk corset photo shoot, I’m quite pleased.

Steam Pressure

Yeah, that’s some high steam pressure indeed! And it’s and a most amazing steampunk corset by Jeroen van der Klis from Bizarre Design.

Just be careful don’t blow a gasket, gentlemen. 😉

Oath Of Offal

Or should that be oath of offal
Loretta Lynch – Oath Of Offal

The Senate voted Thursday, April 23, 2015 to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general, replacing outgoing Eric Holder as the head of the Obama Regime’s Department of Race-based Social Injustice. So, thanks to a exuberance of political sausage making on the part of GOP defectors, this piece of offal will soon be sworn in.

Then, since 2008 American politics have born a greater and greater resemblance to cuisine as Obama’s politics, like cuisine, is predicated upon making trash palatable to the public.
