i also dislike how all the media's spotlight is on 3-4 "swing voters", as if being a republican and having the ability to independently review the facts + the moral conscience to take a stand to do what you believe is the right thing are mutually exclusive. as much as politician these days (regrettably) vote in lockstep, i'm sure this is a hard vote for many republican senators too given how blatantly flawed a SCOTUS candidate kavanaugh is (like, even for conservatives, you've got to be in ultra-crazyland to actually believe hand on heart that he's the best conservative judge out there). but to always expect your colleague to do the right thing on your behalf while gleefully casting the politically expedient vote is just.. cowardly.

 

also, i haven't seen this in the media much: but i've been wondering what john roberts (the chief justice) is thinking watching all of this unfolding. his jurisprudence is conservative, but he's obsessed with preserving the legacy of the court and would hate for the supreme court to be viewed as some sort of ideological apparatus (most famously: he decided to join the liberal justices to vote 5-4 against repealing obamacare through a curious technicality on taxation, which scholars interpreted as his unorthodox way of protecting the supreme court from being seen as a partisan institution).  it would be interesting to see if he drifts further left to become more of a swing vote if kavanaugh is confirmed.

I saw this recently on twitter, in regards to the #WomenTakeaKnee and #TakeAKneeForWomen hashtags spawned in backlash to the Kavanuagh nomination.

I understand where he's coming from. I'm sure these women mean well, but their methods are certainly in want of tact and general consideration. For so-called blacks, our struggles have continually been co-opted, usurped, subverted, and perverted by groups outside of us throughout our history in this land. And in light of that, it does come off as opportunistic, and even disrespectful, of white liberal women to try and append their movement onto ours - especially when they've never had any 'skin in the game' concerning our plight. Now that's not to denigrate the #metoo movement at all - it's simply to make a distinction. These are two separate issues, and two separate movements.

 

With that said, however; I personally think that protesting is a waste of time - especially for the so-called Negro. We've continually supplicated to a nation that has practically shown no regard for us over nearly 400 years. Our time and energy would be better spent taking redemptive action for and towards our own, rather than endlessly trying to convince others of our humanity.

kinda sad to say that Clarence Clarity's Think: Peace and mewithoutYou's untitled album have both already bumped TIW off my playlist. . . . they're both just THAT good

I was randomly looking up videos on YT, and I came across this hilarious Disney WWII propaganda cartoon with Donald Duck. 

 

 

There's a short introduction about the cartoon with the late Leonard Martin. Gotta give props to the comedic animation and a hilarious angry Donald Duck. It's a little patriotic and somewhat stereotypical in some parts, but I still love the slapstick comedy and irony in it.

So it turns out that I'm not allergic to any kinds of nuts after all. I've been living in a terrible lie my whole life...

First thing I'll do tomorrow is go buy some peanut butter and finally see if it really is as good as everyone says it is.

Mix it with Nutella. It's so good.

Nah. First you go out and buy the best, most expensive and most exclusive peanut butter you can find. Then you take a huge spoon, dig into the glass and just eat it straight off the spoon to get a feeling of what it's like.  Then you make yourself a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich and just enjoy life for a moment. It's gotta be strawberry jelly. The real, natural stuff made of 98% strawberries with just a bit of added sugar. Preferable homemade, but you can get some good stuff in some stores too. Expensive as fuck tho, but worth it. Be sure to stay away from the awful, artificial shit you get in most stores with 60% strawberries and a lot of crap you don't need.

Use width of 104 on "About Me" and 118 characters on normal posts if you don't want horizontal scrolling. You also have to do it inside a code box... Messing around w/ copypasta nonsense and just thought of this.
