Late election cycle quotage

I should give a shout out to Nick Steves at social matter, who have a week in reaction series that is worth going through. Some quotes for this time, as the US election gets close. At the end of the progressive cycle, the aristocrats are conflated with the social welfare state, and run the foundations […]

No it is not usual.

I’m adopted. I know plenty of people around my age who were adopted: Rodham’s sacred court case did not occur until I was 12, and abortion was not legalized in NZ until I was 19.

Feminist poststructuralist copybook headings, Kippled.

The disconnect between the elite and the masses has been turned into hatred, and the working class are now seen as Sudra by those who have appointed themselves Brahmans. The upper classes, then, can be expected to […]

The turning is progressing as expected.


Firstly, and with regret, Stross the shark has jumped. From File 770. Bob Howard’s career in the Laundry, the secret British government agency dedicated to protecting the world from unspeakable horrors from beyond spacetime, has entailed high combat, brilliant hacking, ancient magic, and combat with indescribably repellent creatures of pure evil. It has also involved […]
