more like "Against The Brain" amirite

... okay before I show myself out seriously how is someone with such a jacked up view of basic democracy writing about elections And yes, I read it. And yes, it's as bad as you think: Full of misstatements (/lies) about the nature of these issues and objectively right-wing framing.

Like so: Democrats are in no way opposed to "any standards." This is just a lie. And a Republican talking point.

Full moon tonight

November's full moon is the Beaver Moon, so named because this is around the time beavers complete their lodges. Also, it was prime trapping season. Image November's full moon is also sometimes called the Frost Moon, the Freezing Moon, or the Digging (or Scratching) Moon (think squirrels and such searching for nuts this time of year) Image

I'm so old I remember when #vagov candidates suspended their campaigns for a bit because of the 9/11 attacks and I always appreciated the endurance of the unspoken "let's not be shitty, just for today" rule in politics that endured after And now North Carolina Republicans are using the anniversary of 9/11 to be extra shitty.
So tell me more about "decency" and "civility" and how Democrats shouldn't swear.

I became a student of anger a long time ago.
It's something I used to not let myself feel. I had a million excuses.

It's a waste of time and energy

Your life is actually really good, what do you actually have to be angry about

You have no right to be mad about that These are lies.
Anger, like anything else you feel, is an emotion. You have a right to your emotions.
What you don't have is an excuse or a right to intentionally hurt someone because of those emotions.

So I finally watched that Gillette ad. After all the uproar, I was basically expecting a man to be castrated on-screen with one of the company's own razors It's a perfectly fine ad. Gillette is trying to make cash money off of the goodwill surrounding the concept of men not being assholes in this day and age. That's their job, and I'm not mad at them for it.
