    Merry Christmas everybody!!! 🙂
    We’ll have 16 at our house at 10:00 this morning.

  2. rightymouse says:

    And my hubby has Octo’s flu bug. 😦

    • Octopus says:

      Everyone here has it, too. Still having a great time, though. 😄

      • rightymouse says:

        I couldn’t kiss him today for fear of catching the flu. 😦

        • Octopus says:

          Hate to say it, but if you’re within fifty feet…you’ve been exposed. 😱😄

          • rightymouse says:

            I have a great immune system when it comes to colds/the flu. Hopefully will be ok.

          • Octopus says:

            You’re lucky. My immune-system is not the best — I seem to catch all the trendy viruses, no matter how many vitamins I scarf and whatnot. Everyone in my family has jobs where they interact with a lot of people, and the bugs find their way home to my lungs and sinuses, where they meet up with their old pals from years gone by and throw a sloppy reunion party. Until Mr. Penicillin has to come in, and start kicking asses and taking names. That’s where I’m at now, after the revellers moved down from my head to the lungs, ripping up the road in-between (very sore throat). The Virus Family would be okay, but when they really get to partying, they always invite The Bacterias over, and that family is just not domesticated. They’d kill you by accident, and not even feel bad about it.

          • rightymouse says:

            Poor you. 😦 In the past, colds/flu tended to settle in my sinuses. I’ve rarely had chest/lung colds in my life. Maybe once or twice that I remember.

          • rightymouse says:

            My body has been fighting off the crap coughed on me by hubby & son. Lathered Vicks under my nose last night. All is well today. One supplement I take that may be crucial is NAD (niagen). All I know is that I don’t get the kind of chest congestion they both have.

  3. rightymouse says:

    Trump’s approval rating is higher than Obama’s at same time in his Presidency. Keep the impeachment insanity going Donkeys! Merry Christmas! 😆


  4. dezzez says:

    Merry Christmas!
    Sorry Chuck has to sit and stew all alone and wallow in hate and misery while the rest of us have friends and family to share the day with, okay, not really sorry.

  5. Abu says:

    Merry Christmas to my fellow mockers.

  6. Octopus says:

    I forgot to clock in here, this morning — sloppy!

    Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals! 😄

  7. rightymouse says:

    Merry Christmas to you too! Hope you had a great day! Am watching Christmas Story with 2 granddaughters. Such a special day! 🙂

    • Octopus says:

      Just finished the second marathon day in a row, of eating, drinking and playing cutthroat games. We played several hours of “Left-right-center” this evening after turkey dinner with all the Thanksgiving-style fixings, and several bottles of good Napa Valley wine were consumed with reckless abandon. Great day.

      Both of my kids have to work tomorrow, so they had to go home a bit early, or we’d still be going. I’ve got the rest of this week and next off, so I’m going to catch up on some shows, some books, and some sleep.

      Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night! Including you, Chonky — may your begging bowl be filled with holiday cheer, instead of the bum-urine and self-priming you’ve been getting. What you’re doing now isn’t working, as you must realize by now. I know you must be filled with secret remorse for the way you’ve destroyed your one successful venture. You can’t change the fact you killed your best chance at a profitable internet presence, but what if…no, this is kind of crazy, but hear me out: what if you came clean entirely, about what caused your overnight-switch to all the insane positions of the Idiot Left? Were you paid by Soros, as we now know many right-wing commentators have been? Were you frightened by Islamist murderers, as some have been, a few of them actually killed? Did you just think you could jump on the Obama-bandwagon, and switch over from right-to-left like Ariana did so fecklessly? Was there an element of romantic frustration, after Pamela so publicly stiff-armed you into the friend-zone, and ran off to Europe with Spencer?

      Spill it all, and throw yourself on the mercy of the internet court. America loves a comeback story. 😆

      And Gus, we hope you find your way out of that libturd-quicksand of grift and addiction — you could still be a productive citizen, if you went to rehab for a few months and mended your evil ways. Rehab doesn’t have to be the expensive, celebrity-type — I know lots of people, myself included way back when, who just decided to stop self-medicating and changed their routine towards the positive. Doesn’t mean you can never drink again, or smoke weed again, but take a little time off and see how your mind and body respond. Do something fitness-related, like jogging or weight-lifting, or even just taking a long walk on a daily basis. Get off Twitter!

  9. rightymouse says:

    Gussy was stoned last night (early morning?).

    And his Christmas was lonely & miserable. He does this to himself. And Gussy? Christ was/is real. Deal with it. Might help your misery.

    The only thing I can figure is that Pelousy is thinking holding back the articles is prolonging a period of fund raising which they desperately need. Problem is Trump’s people are also using impeachment to juice up fund raising. I get at a couple emails a day from them. I gave $100 to them and got my Trump wrapping paper on Monday. (Guess they ran out of mugs.) But I thought they would be pragmatic about getting it all in the past quick since it has no bi-partisan support. Now I’m trying to think what could be the benefit? I wonder if it’s purely selfish on the part of Pelousy. Could she be thinking the more this is convoluted and drawn out the bigger a role she’ll have as a towering figure in the history books for all time? Her ego’s kept her going this long. Because they’ve made the mistake of only winging the King with a superficial wound. Not killing him. But only annoying him and enraging his loyal subjects of which are legion.

    • rightymouse says:

      She knows that it’s DOA in the Senate. I do find her attempts to control McConnell rather disturbing. But she’s dragging her feet for a reason for sure.

  11. Koko says:

    Canucks showing that their true color is green for Envy. They’re forever trying to act superior and like WE’RE the bullshitters. But their effete French boy fancy pants Preezydunce acts like a nervous schoolboy around our President who openly and dismissively refers to theirs as “two-faced”. LOL!


    • Octopus says:

      Classic Canuck Trump-envy! 😆

      Everyone thinks they’re so nice, our neighbors to the North. They’re incredibly passive-aggressive, and dominated thoroughly by SJWs. Notice how Trudeau skated on the blackface thing? Yes, it was ridiculous, but if he’d been a conservative, he’d have been lynched big-time and removed from office.

    • Octopus says:

      Whenever Silverman’s name comes up, I think back to interviews I’ve read with her where she maintains that her everyday pot-smoking habit is healthy and cool, and so much better than drinking or taking prescription drugs. I doubt that the two latter items are off the menu, but I’ve known a lot of potheads in my day, and was one in high school — it’s not a great way to face reality. Not smoking every damn day. You’re addled, girl. Years of cognition have been lost forever. Good luck with that.

  12. Octopus says:

    Same people that don’t like Bernie yelling are racist.
    2 hours ago
    Same people that don’t like Bernie yelling also eat babies and toddlers.
    2 hours ago

    Fightin’ them libs on teh Twitter! 😆

  13. Octopus says:

    There’s a rumor floating around the political blogs today that the Dems are ready to quietly dump Biden, who appears to be entering serious senility, and embrace either Fauxcahontas Rabbit Warren or Bernie Multi-Millionaire Socialist. Either one would be mincemeat, running against Trump. Nobody else in the clown car can even generate high single-digit support amongst Democrats, much less the national citizenry, which looks to be rallying more and more behind Trump.

    Somewhere, Shrillary is rubbing her hands together, cackling quietly to herself, and plotting. Always plotting.

    • rightymouse says:

      Hillary is a fool. She may just believe she has another chance. Am praying her neurological issues keep her away.

      • rightymouse says:

        I had a stroke back in 2009 so I know what I’m talking about. To this day, I have to be careful going down stairs because of balance issues. Hillary obviously has the same problem. Watch Huma coming down behind. She’s fine.

        • Octopus says:

          Strokes are scary. They often come out of nowhere, and can range from very mild to devastating, and/or fatal. The men on my wife’s side have a genetic precondition involving tangled-veins in their brains, that can cause a stroke at any time. They all have to get screened, and two of them have had corrective brain surgery!

  14. rightymouse says:

    For those of you who are approaching Medicare age, please be vigilant when you get your supplemental insurance & contract with someone who can guide you through. It can be a nightmare. Can’t imagine what it’s like for people who are disabled. What a mess. 😦

    • Bunk X says:

      I’ve heard that from others.

      • rightymouse says:

        Yep. And even with a seasoned person who filed the necessary paperwork for me & hubby, I got a notice of supplemental prescription insurance cancellation if they don’t get a copy of my Medicare card ASAP. WTH??? What do people do if they are disabled?? Good grief!!

  15. rightymouse says:

    Dude. Get extra boxes of tissues. Trump isn’t going to be impeached by the Senate, just like Bill Clinton.

  16. rightymouse says:

    Gussy’s being snarky against liberal mentality. Too funny. 😆 😆

    • Octopus says:

      We’d only eat vegetables raised organically, and get our protein from the sun, instead of our brothers and sisters in Farmland bondage. I talked to a vegan gal yesterday, a niece from my wife’s side, for about ten minutes, getting her side of the whole meat, dairy, fish and whatever atrocities. Of course, she’s also afflicted with all the libturd political garbazh. I was so polite, I nearly bit my tongue clean off. 😆

  17. Koko says:


    We knew this three years ago. In fact McCain admitted doing it.


    What he didn’t admit is he and all the world’s intel agencies knew it was complete bullshit.


    Doug Wead: As far as Russian collusion, I have to tell you in my book there’s a great story there. The kids, the Trump kids are traveling all over the world, heads of state are pulling them aside in 2017 and they’re saying, “Please tell your father how sorry we are about this Russian collusion nonsense.” So there you go.

    If you’re the president of China or president of France you can’t wait two years for the Mueller report. You have your own secret service, there’s 120 intelligence services in the world. Everyone of them checked this out. They knew within 24 hours that this was a bogus story. The future of their country depended on knowing that. So this has kind of lingered on a little too long.

      • Octopus says:

        That pic seems all too emblematic of McCain’s half-assed campaign. 😡

        • rightymouse says:

          The only thing he did right was pick Sarah Palin as his VP. His numbers went up but he couldn’t get over the squishy RINO label with the voters. One thing I do remember vividly from that election year were the hypocritical feminists having melt-downs over Sarah.
          Here’s one example:

          • Octopus says:

            They really showed themselves, didn’t they? Strong woman who has conservative beliefs? “She’s an evil bitch and a Nazi Maxipad!” They emptied the libturd dumpster, throwing baseless charges at her.

          • rightymouse says:

            The so-called ‘feminists’ were disgusting. I voted for McCain with pride because of Palin. And one of my girlfriends who hated voting went to the ballot box for the same reason. Palin.

  18. Koko says:

    According to the left we musn’t ever normalize having Donald Trump as President. But they were happy to normalize this shit about a week after 9/11. The brutal mass murders by cruel terrorists inspired by the Religion of Peace have never stopped. The mainstream media just ignores them.


    The Islamic State has released a video which purportedly shows the brutal execution of 11 blindfolded Christians in Nigeria, the day after Christmas, in revenge for the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and IS spokesman Abdul-Hasan al-Muhajir, accordign to Ahmad Salkida – a journalist who was first sent the video.

    “This is a message to Christians all over the world,” says a masked man from the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP), in the 56-second clip released the Amaq news agency, a platform for Islamic State propaganda.

    “We killed them as revenge for the killing of our leaders, including Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and [IS spokesman] Abul-Hasan al-Muhajir.”

    • rightymouse says:

      Effing asshole Islamic murderers. 😦
      And white liberal asshole males like Charles defend the mothereffers. Bah!

      • Octopus says:

        As if they needed a new reason to decapitate Christians. 😆

        The Idiot Left will try to blame this massacre on Trump, for the “insensitive” way he talked about al-Bagdadi’s killing.

  19. rightymouse says:

    Murkowski is ‘disturbed’. Murkowski is also an annoying, squishy RINO.


  20. rightymouse says:

    And this is exactly why we love Trump! Romney & McCain RINOS would have just rolled over to liberals & media if they had become President. Like Bush did.

  21. Koko says:

    Heh. He hasn’t changed much.

  22. dezzez says:

    Let me see if we can help Chuck!

  23. rightymouse says:

    Excellent if anyone can help Fatso retweet his tweet to the Twitter Gestapo. 😆

  24. rightymouse says:

    Glenn could have been talking about our Fatso.

    • Octopus says:

      Fatass was all-in with Maddow’s madness, of course. So were the late-night “comics,” the Hollywood shitlibs (Reiner, Babs, et al), the Twitterfolk, and millions of dumbasses across the country. Quite a shitshow.

  25. Octopus says:

    Did I show youse guys the mug my kid got me for Christmas? Pretty sweet. 😄


  26. Octopus says:

    The one game we NEED the Lions to lose, and they’re playing one of their best games all season. How do I hate this team? Let me count the ways… (shoots self)

    • Abu says:

      I’ll be switched over on FOX once the Bears puke up a loss. I’ll see if I can get AM 660 the Packers radio station.

      • Abu Marconi says:

        No signal.

      • Abu says:

        If they don’t trade up for Trubisky 2.0 then you’ll be fine. Or they can get picks by trading.

        Correction: Packers radio is 620, not 660 as earlier asserted. We regret the error.

        • Octopus says:

          I don’t want another hot-shot QB just yet, though I would spend a 3rd or 4th-rd pick on a prospect. Stafford’s got a couple of years left in him. He still hasn’t benefited from a decent running game, to go with his always-decent passing game.

          The real shitshow this season was on defense, when that was supposed to be a strength. HAH! Worst defense I’ve seen in ten years, from this franchise. I don’t know where to begin to improve it, but we need a couple of studs with attitude, maybe a couple of minor felonies between them. Not trying to be picky about off-the-field issues! 😆

  27. Octopus says:


    I’ve discovered “roasties.” Life is better now. All thanks to Paddy, the older girl’s fiancé. 😃

    • rightymouse says:

      Am not a potato person, but these look good. Will try the recipe when I have company over. 🙂

      • Octopus says:

        They are AWESOME! I mean, I’d had roasted potatoes before, but not prepared the way Irish people do it. The crispiness and lightly-seasoned outside, combined with the soft, delicious insides, is an elevation of the humble potato. We used Yukon Golds, for Christmas dinner.

  28. Bunk X says:

    Drudge updates have slowed noticeably…

  29. Octopus says:

    Wow, that’s insightful. Jealous much? 😂

  30. Octopus says:

    Chonky retweeting the Trump-deranged Soledad is exactly the same as his promotion of the despicable Madcow. Note: she regularly features blithering idiocy from Bill Kristol these days.

    • rightymouse says:

      One of the things I am so grateful to Trump for is exposing all the weasel, no-good, pretend Republicans like Kristol, Flake, McCain, Romney, Bush etc.

  31. windbag says:

    Because people are in a hurry and don’t really listen to others anyway, I like to say “Hare Krishna!!” and laugh at their “Oh, and Merry Christmas to you, too” reply.

  32. rightymouse says:

    It turns out that my sinus ‘cold’ and the fever I had yesterday was probably caused by my son (also sick) using my TOOTHBRUSH because he took a bath in the master bathroom & was too lazy to go get his own toothbrush. AAAAAAACK!!!

  33. Octopus says:

    You’re an imbecile. 😂

    When all you have is a dusty begging bowl, everyone looks like Hitler. Apparently.

    • rightymouse says:

      Fatso has been paranoid about white supremacists & Nazis under his bed for a long time. Now they’re on twitter. Dude needs medication.

  34. Octopus says:


    Sad but all true.

  35. Octopus says:

    Chonky’s retweeting this socialist bitch-boy now — reading his Twitter-timeline is like jumping into a vat of libturd snowflake tears. Hold your nose! 😂


  36. rightymouse says:

    I needed this giggle today. Was sent by a friend. 😆

    • Octopus says:

      I wouldn’t mind if Little Greta went on one of those Arctic Exploration cruises next summer, looking for the Northwest Passage or whatnot. With a camera crew, of course, to film all the wacky dramedy. BRRRRR!!! 😆

  37. rightymouse says:

    It’s sneauxing. Hubby & I braved the weather to go get my last prescription refill before Medicare kicks in. Also picked up some food for tonight. No way we’re going out.

  38. Octopus says:

    My sister in Traverse City was out walking her cats on the property this morning, when they were buzzed by a Snowy Owl, which I happen to think is the most attractive bird. She didn’t manage to get a pic of it, as she was yelling at her cats to take cover, which I think was unnecessary. Owls and other raptors don’t bother with dogs and cats, even smaller ones, as they can’t fly away with anything that weighs as much as they do — and they’re very light, underneath all the fluffy feathers.

    Here’s a pic I found, of the prettiest birdie:

    • Koko says:

      Interesting word raptor. I thought it had some taxonomic meaning but apparently not. It’s just a category of bird or even dinosaur meaning:

      Definition of raptor

      1: a carnivorous medium- to large-sized bird (such as a hawk, eagle, owl, or vulture) that has a hooked beak and large sharp talons and that feeds wholly or chiefly on meat taken by hunting or on carrion : BIRD OF PREY
      2[New Latin -raptor (as in velociraptor)] : a usually small-to-medium-sized predatory dinosaur (such as a velociraptor or deinonychus)

      I would guess the owl was buzzing your sister and cats because they were walking in it’s hunting ground. They don’t like that and will try and drive off other potential predators. The cats were probably the real target, not for a meal but to be scared off.

      • Octopus says:

        Way to troll those wolves, Snowy! 😄

        • Octopus says:

          I’ve seen so many pics of snowy owls with blue eyes on the ‘webz, I thought it was actually a thing. A genetic possibility. Sadly, no. It’s just photoshopping dweebz. But still a cool image!

          O Rly?

          Note: my Sis hasn’t seen Snowy since that first scary sighting. However, she did see a bobcat a few weeks ago on her property, which is much more dangerous for domestic kitties. Bobcats and coyotes snarf up them kitties like popcorn. Like Chonky with a bathtub-full of Cheetos, it’s over in seconds. 😯

  39. Koko says:


    Jake’s a real frickin’ genius. He just found out about this the other day and his only take-away is:

    “Do you think future presidents and vice presidents should say my relatives cannot cash in, in any way, on their connection to me?”

    That’s hard-hitting journalism right there. No seriously Jake you’re a dipshit.

  40. Koko says:


    Some are speculating the CIA may have had a hand in this in an attempt to smear Trump with a Benghazi-like debacle and even draw him into an unpopular war so some Demoncrap leftist globalist chump has a chance in the election. I would not be even slightly shocked. The differences however are that the Ambassador and staff were not on site having already been evacuated. Of course the Iraqi defenders were nowhere to be found. The remaining defending US soldiers are well armed with deterrents and much fire power so far only firing warning shots. And Apaches have been deployed as well as, 100 additional marines ferried in via Chinooks.


    • Koko says:

      IOW a pro response with US lives in mind vs. the Obungle/Klingon poll tested version which got people killed.

      • Octopus says:

        I’d bring in Spooky and lay waste to the “protesters.” What, no inflammatory YouTube video to justify the embassy attack? 😄

  41. Bunk X says:

    Dang I missed it:

    Happy New Year, Blogmockers!

    • Octopus says:

      I’m working on it. Had a four-hour marathon Italian meal, and now it’s time to fight off the sleepies and watch the ball drop.

  42. Koko says:

    She sees them self destructing and she’s laying a foundation for her future.

    And she’s really fit. Not that that matters.

    • Octopus says:

      That fits perfectly. Obungle had/has very close ties to the mullahs. How many billions did he gift them, again?

  44. Koko says:


    I don’t agree with the headline after watching the video. I think he was slightly irritated because she grasped his hand (with both of hers) hard enough that it hurt. He was simply trying to get free of her. He’s an old man and so am I. I could see how a slightly crazed young strong woman could really hurt your hand by grasping it as hard as she can. Especially when he wasn’t expecting it. Just trying to be fair. He is human, after all.

  45. Koko says:

    One of my New Years favs. Can we just please have some well executed rock and roll? No lip sync problems, no wardrobe problems, mic/monitor issues. Just some guys singing fuckin’ rock and roll.

    Thank you.

      Last night’s “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve” was an embarrassment to watch. Then I got control of the godbox.

        Dick Clark should be suing. On the other hand, people should be suing Cohen and Cooper’s shitshow on CNN, and the incredibly bad Steve Harvey extravaganza on Fox. Godalmighty. 😆

  46. Koko says:

    Happy New Years!!! LOL!

  47. Octopus says:


    Crazy how that works, when you let people work and succeed off the gubmint teat, and start feeling all self-reliant and proud of themselves. No wonder shif’less Chonky and his socialist non-friends and non-supporters are ape-o-plectic about Trump’s massively successful presidency.

    I’m guessing the wished for improvement doesn’t entail invading third world unregulated shit holes including giant filthy polluters like China to force their manufacturing to comply with Paris accord standards?

    Meanwhile, Moore is terrified of…himself. 😆


    “I refuse to participate in post-racial America,” Moore told Rolling Stone’s “Useful Idiots” podcast on Monday. “I refuse to say, ‘Because we elected Obama that suddenly that means everything’s OK, white people have changed.’ White people have not changed,” he said.

    “Two-thirds of all white guys voted for Trump,” he said. “That means anytime you see three white guys walking at you, down the street toward you, two of them voted for Trump. You need to move over to the other sidewalk because these are not good people that are walking toward you. You should be afraid of them.”

  58. Octopus says:

    He’s like, rilly smart. 😆

  59. Octopus says:


    This article makes me want to read, “On The Road,” again. It’s been since college, the last time I read it. A professor told us, “He went crazy and drank himself to death, turning into a fascist in his old age.” The only thing true about that was the drinking part. He was a Catholic conservative, all through his life.

      Ken Kesey was always a fun read.

      • Octopus says:

        Tom Wolfe’s “Teh Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test” told the story of Kesey and his bus the best. Everyone should read everything Wolfe ever wrote, including his last book, “The Kingdom Of Speech,” which angered people all over the place. 😆

        Kesey wrote, “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” and that’s all one great writer should ever have to come up with.

    Excellent essay on the Tech Monster Monopolies, who need to be broken-up and defeated politically in coming years, lest they impose their totalitarian agenda permanently. From AoS, of course.

    America’s 21st Century Leftist Tyranny – A Public/Private “Authorigopoly”

    —Open Blogger

    The 21st Century method of left wing tyranny now being implemented by American leftists cannot be described as communism or socialism any longer. Instead we have an emerging “authorigopoly” – authoritarianism exercised by an oligopoly/cartel of monopoly businesses, loyal to the agenda of the unelected permanent left wing government bureaucracy, and supported by virtually every non-governmental institution in the country. While it’s not technically accurate to label publically-traded for-profit businesses as “socialist”, there is no doubt that our monster tech companies are actively leftist, and not just in philosophy, they are active enforcers of left-wing ideology. What is so terrifying about the authorigopoly is that it has the power to silence speech and opinions in a manner the left has always dreamed of, without having to openly nullify the 1st Amendment and that pesky Bill of Rights. In effect, by aligning with monster tech, the left has outsourced its tyranny to a cartel of monopoly businesses who have the power to veto any individual’s participation in modern society.

    One prominent fissure among “Trump conservatives” and “#NeverTrump conservatives” is that virtually all of the legacy conservative media supports the right of monster tech companies to use their monopoly powers to suppress speech and to punish dissenters via de-platforming. To those of us conservatives who used to read National Review and the Wall Street Journal, we are shocked to now read that those publications are actively hostile to liberty so long as the left-wing ruling class can outsource our subjugation to private entities. Monster tech is a cartel of monopolies, and they control the 21st century digital utilities. It would have been unthinkable in the 20th century for private telephone monopolies to listen to phone calls and suspend service to those engaged in wrongthink, but the American left – and legacy conservative media – have now actively embraced cancel culture. They support the tech monopolies’ right to ban access to modern digital utilities for any individual who dares to voice the wrong opinion.

    So, can’t I just go start my own tech business if I don’t like being censored and de-platformed by existing companies? No, I can’t. When a Twitter competitor started to gain some traction, both Google and Apple banished it from their software and mobile devices, allegedly because it attracted some people with unsavory opinions. But remember, free speech isn’t necessary to protect popular or non-controversial opinions. And let’s be honest, Google and Apple were ultimately just protecting their cartel partner (Twitter) from competition. Further, any other digital company that does get traction and becomes successful (Instagram, You Tube, etc) will be acquired by one of the monster tech cartel members, and the authorigopoly’s speech code will be forced upon the acquired entity.

    The social media oligopoly has made it clear that to participate in the digital world, you will comply with allowable speech codes, and at the same time you will not compete with the existing cartel members. They’ll protect each other. And yes – these companies are utilities. My small town is one of many that uses Facebook as a way of disseminating information to residents. If I want to know about city department holiday schedules, road closures, flooding, icy roads, etc, then I need Facebook. And Facebook knows I need them. And Facebook is eager to use its monopoly power as a utility to make me comply with the authorigopoly’s allowable speech and opinions.

    Beyond the ruling cartel, the current leftist power structure differs from communism/socialism in that private enterprise is allowed. But private businesses must act as agents and enforcers of PC/leftist culture. Ask Papa John or Mozilla’s Brandon Eich if independent thought or straying from the party line is allowed. They expressed the wrong opinions and then the enforcement arm of the authorigopoly was quickly unleashed. Whereas capitalism has an “invisible hand”, the authorigopoly has an “invisible fist”. Non-compliance with leftist doctrine will unleash an angry and violent mob. And yes, it is violent – just ask Mrs. Tucker Carlson. We effectively have a leftist version of sharia in which private enterprise is allowed, but to stay in business it must be in compliance with the tenets of the faith.

    Perhaps the private corporations who are in service to the authorigopoly will someday allow de-platformed individuals the opportunity to re-join modern society. They could offer training classes and rituals that could be held at rural retreats. Sort of a camping experience maybe. A setting where individuals could be “re-educated.” Or here’s a better alternative: Break-up the cartel. Smash the monopolies. Bust their authoritarian trust. And maybe even shackle some of the executives for overseeing a totalitarian regime that has sought to deny Americans their constitutional freedoms. This needs to be a priority in President Trump’s second term.

      • Your username shows up when you post comments; choose the name that best represents you to the world. The name must be at least 4 characters long, and may not contain HTML tags. You cannot change your username.

      • If you pick an offensive username, containing obscenities or racial slurs, or any other offensive content, your account will be blocked.

      • Your password can be any combination of numbers, letters and symbols, from 6 to 24 characters long, and it is case sensitive; i.e. the letter ‘a’ is different from the letter ‘A’.

      • You must provide a valid email address, because you will be automatically emailed instructions to complete your registration. Do not use an address like ‘meNOSPAM@me.com’ — your confirmation email will not reach you if you do.

      • Your email address will not appear anywhere on the LGF site, unless you make it available yourself.

      • If your email service has a spam filter enabled, it may interfere with the automatic confirmation email. Please disable any spam filters temporarily until you receive our email.

      • You may not register while using an anonymous proxy, an anonymous remailer, or a disposable email address. Registrations are monitored, and any accounts that violate this clause will be blocked.

      • It’s also a bad idea to register more than one username with different email accounts. Trolls do this. Frequently. If you do it, all your accounts are likely to be blocked.

      • If you do not log in for more than 6 months, your account may be suspended.

      • We try to keep things relatively civil around here, which means that if you act the fool, your account may be blocked at any time, and at the sole discretion of LGF.

      • If you forget your password, you can request a special email to reset it — another reason why you must provide a valid email address.

      • Did we mention that you must provide a valid email address to complete your registration? We did? The spam filter thing, we mentioned that too?

      • LGF promises never to sell or disclose your email address.
