“Shane Vaughn explains that conservatives should win every time because they tried really hard and showed up to vote. The stupid liberals just keep out numbering them and voting more. And that isn’t fair! We should institute an electoral college for state elections too! Because the only reason republicans ever win the presidency is the electoral college. This is seriously some of the most backward and bizarre logic I’ve heard in awhile. He doesn’t even try to PRETEND it isn’t a fully self serving idea!”

“The situation with the Dungeons & Dragons OGL has gone from bad to worse for those using it to create gaming content. A leaked document shows that WotC will now consider the old OGL “unlicensed content” and the terms of the new OGL agreement are absolutely draconian! Is this an attempt by Hasbro to take out Paizo and Pathfinder?”

Dungeons & Dragons Creator and OSR Fans ATTACKED by PBS News Hour?!…

“DnD is coming under attack by the media AGAIN… but this time they’re taking aim directly at creator Gary Gygax, and blaming him for the alleged racism that’s “baked into” Dungeons & Dragons. And it’s not coming from a Polygon or Kotuku this time. It’s PBS News Hour. Not content to just thrash Gygax, PBS proceeds to slam OSR fans, claiming that they’re gatekeeping the hobby from “diverse” people. What the actual hell…”

…”All monsters being racist”?!…

Do we honestly have to point out the elephant in the room…that all human races are already represented within the D&D human species?

Blacks…whites…oriental…indian…you name it…it was already there…

Are we to believe, for example [as has already been claimed by the ignorant], that orcs represent black humans, when black humans already had a dignified representation in D&D games within the human race?…

…Or are these nitwits trying to argue, that fictional races have been the “victims of racism”, by being given “undesirable” physical and character traits?

If the later is true…I’d question who the actual racists are, here…That sounds like a textbook racist take, if you ask me.

Note From San Francisco…

“In the second, you see how the cycle of threats and bad media that first emerged in 2017 became institutionalized, to the point where a long list of government enforcement agencies essentially got to operate Twitter as an involuntary contractor, heading into the 2020 election. Requests for moderation were funneled mainly through the FBI, the self-described “belly button” of the federal government (not a joke, an agent really calls it that).

The company leadership knew as far back as 2017 that giving in to even one request to suspend this or that set of accused “hostile foreign accounts” would lead to an endless cycle of such demands. “Will work to contain that,” offered one comms official, without much enthusiasm, after the company caved for the first time that year. By 2020, Twitter was living the hell its leaders created for themselves.”

Series of Lies Prove that Congressman-Elect is a Real Politician – George Santos Case Analysis:

“This video answers the question: Can I analyze case of George Santos?”

So…This guy lies his ass off, to get where he is currently at [elected to office]…

…We don’t know where the money came from, that pushed him this far…

…I don’t know the politician he deposed, but how can that guy be any worse than “George”?…a pathological liar?…Plus, he dragged that seat and it’s vote to the repulsican party.

…Do we even know what “George” has said, that is verifiable honest and true?…Is “George Santos” even his real name?…

…Who is this guy?…Who is behind him?…and when are they going to expel/recall him?

If the repuslican party had any integrity whatsoever, they’d have already sent him home.

This guy should never be allowed to have that kind of power…It’s just flaunting in the face of everyone, what’s so fucked up about Washington DC…They lie to your face while begging for your vote…then arrive in government prepared to betray everyone, and do whatever they please.

Is anyone going to do anything about this?…Or are they just going to seat him, and let him start casting votes and writing bills?

This is a case we must keep our eyes on…It will show us whether the U.S. government even cares to outwardly pretend that it has integrity…Or if they’re letting it all hang out, and showing us they don’t care what we want or think.

‘He’s surrendered’: Axelrod on Kevin McCarthy’s concessions…

Date: January 05, 2023

01) LINK


“Former Obama adviser, David Axelrod, weighs in on the vote for Speaker of the House as Kevin McCarthy appears to lose the 7th round of voting.”

Maybe they should actually start doing something, about the immediate peril the U.S. public is currently in?…Do something monumental for the population?…Stop worrying about “what it looks like”, who you’re working with?…

If they actually gave a fuck about the population and tangibly turned things around…heh!…

…Yeah…

…It’s probably just another delaying stunt…a spectacle of diversion…Not that anyone should want McCarthy as speaker of the house…It’s just more endless government bullshit, creating a quagmire where they’re not expected to do anything.

CAUGHT! Dem Congressman DEMANDED Twitter Ban Journalists! w/Matt Taibbi…

Date: January 05, 2023

01) LINK


“During the Trump impeachment proceedings, Democratic Congressman and Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff talked a good game about “American values” and the like, but when he decided he didn’t like certain journalists and tried to get them banned from social media outlets, well, maybe that whole “freedom of the press” thing wasn’t quite so important after all. In the latest Twitter Files dump, journalist Matt Taibbi reveals the efforts Schiff made to silence journalists who were a bit too “oppositional.”

Guest host Aaron Maté and Taibbi discuss the journalists targeted by Schiff and how Twitter responded to the demands.”

“The government has gotten more aggressive, and we’re not going to be able to say ‘No’ anymore”…

It’s been clear for a long time, that something really off, really bad had happened behind the scenes at twitter.

After years of relatively fair treatment, twitter abruptly betrayed everything about free speech, and went on a rabid purge against any “wrong think” person or group they could find on the platform.

Aside from stopping you from expressing your free speech on their platform [and that of the several others, who share a black list], they did not even care to hide the complete injustice, of what they had done to you…They just went all in, complete fascist…and made you disappear.

I keep thinking to myself…regardless of the fact that I’ve been around out here for over twenty year…I still cannot possibly be big enough to warrant government targeting…But then I see stuff like this…And I know the governments past, with the hostile targeting of liberals, and people who think humans should have rights…

…and a politician or agency a-hole marking my account for permanent suspension starts to make sense, given the suspect nature of it all…and twitters absolute refusal to answer any questions.

…But then, it could be as simple as a twitter a-hole merely seizing the moment during rapid change, and tossing my account on the pyre while “nobody” is watching.
