The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

Algorithms, Suppression of Opposition Speech, and Psy-Ops.

As I write this, the Oscars are on. Why not? They’re fun.

I still want to see Hidden Figures, and I hope it wins big, because I’m such a sucker for all things outer space and feminist. My law thesis was on outer space law – but that’s another story, and also a fun one.

[…]

For Those Who Wonder Why the GOP Politicians Are Doing This…

…it is because the GOP politicians just don’t care about ethics nor their oaths to serve their constituents. They are so embittered that liberals got to make the reforms that we wanted and so many of them and they have given up and decided to cheat, because that’s the only way that they will be […]

Orwellian Monsters – Human and Computer

Here it is: the Orwellian monster that is Cambridge Analytica.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it…

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down

It has a data-gathering practice called OCEAN, an acronym for openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism. It analyzes all that data to see what sort of voter you are. This corporation is […]

Destroying the World in Order to Build it Back Up – No Thank You.

Steve Bannon, Trump’s political strategist, has been heard to say that he wants to destroy the world, watch it burn, whatever it takes to remove the social, economic, political, and legal infrastructure that we now have, so that the slate will be cleared for building it anew.

Here is the quote:

“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon […]

Dystopian Fiction Feels Very Different From Dystopian Nonfiction.

Nineteen Eight-Four by George Orwell.

Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler.

They are both dystopian books.

One is fiction, one is nonfiction.

Reading one is taking in a story with a moral to it – it’s a cautionary tale to learn from.

The same is true of the other.

The problem is that the first one […]

Don’t Expect Celebration of a Fascist Authoritarian.

It has finally happened.

Hell has frozen over, or whatever this state of disunion is.

We are officially living in the Untied States of America, and that is not a typographical error.

The size of the crowd must have been deeply disappointing to man whose ego is inextricably wrapped up in perceptions of size.

Book 3 of the Nae-Née Series is Out: New World Order Underwater.

At last, I can announce that I am the author of a completed series of novels on human overpopulation.

Here are their covers, done by artists Katelyn M. Gagnon (Book 1) and Steve Palmerton (Books 2 and 3):

The name of the series is Nae-Née, for a birth control nanite. The name is […]

Revolt Against the Pumpkingropenfuhrer. Now. No Need to Wait.

People have been asking when to revolt. Do it now. We’re out of reasons to wait.

The Electoral College has failed to go rogue, perhaps out of cowardice in the face of state legislation that seeks to constrain them via fines and/or prison time (even though federal law supersedes state law.

So…how to revolt? Little […]

Electoral College, This is Not a Game. Go Rogue. Put Hillary in the White House.

The popular vote in our November 8th, 2016 Presidential election went to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

That, however, does not matter one whit.

The Electoral College vote tally – a mere guesstimation and/or prediction of what its members-for-a-day will actually do on December 19th – gave it to Donald J. Trump.

Trump is an orange Nazi […]
