2016 Mazda Miata Grand Touring and Infotainment System Review

Lucy, we’ve got some ‘splaining to do.
~~dru~~ Now to often be known as goddess-dru


The presidential race has tightened. On a Young Turks snippet, Cenk Uygur cited a number of reputable polls putting Trump ahead in various swing states, and even Nate Silver has lowered Hillary’s chances from 87% a few weeks ago, to about 67%. Some attribute the Trump surge to James Comey investigating more of Hillary Clinton’s, “damn emails,” others cite a staggering recent increase in ACA (Obamacare) premiums. I have doubted all polling since FiveThirtyEight blew the Michigan primary.

Since Donald J Trump became a credible candidate, just about every pundit or blogger – myself included – has taken a stab at explaining why voters might support such a strange duck. I understand that Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo plans to write a book on the subject. I’ve already posted about the comparisons to Brexit, and the disaffected working class voters, and the pundits that have gone there. Most…

Evidently one who can’t stand up ~~dru~~

Lunatic is an informal term referring to a person who is considered mentally ill, dangerous, foolish or unpredictable, conditions once attributed to lunacy. The term may be considered insulting in serious contexts in modern times, but is now more likely to be used in friendly jest. The word derives from lunaticus meaning “of the moon” or “moonstruck”. The term was once commonly used in law. source: Wikipedia


A Buick in the Land of Lexus


When my therapist advised me to check into a treatment center, all I could think of was how wonderful it would be to go somewhere restful and sleep abundantly.

It’s exhausting fighting for every second of your life.

“Treatment center” is therapist jargon for “mental hospital.” I prefer the romance of “loony bin.” It comes from the word “lunatic,” derived from “luna.” There’s something comforting in the antiquated notion that I, like vampires and werewolves, am simply the victim of changing phases of the moon.

I have an ongoing fantasy of electroshock treatments cauterizing the endless loop of chatter in my brain. No “and how does that make you feel?” for days and months and years; just a flip of a switch; current flows; I am healed.

It takes a giant leap of faith to presume that a degree and a shingle guarantee someone will possess the empathy…

I think I can handle spilled water…but trust me there are other ways to be cursed. Mostly I just curse but sometimes what goes around……etc. Consider this pass and tell someone in charge to stop cursing ME!

Ben's Bitter Blog

As you probably have heard, the Cubs won the World Series the other night. If you haven’t it’s because you were hiding in a bunker for the last 108 years and didn’t know that it was such a big deal. If you were hiding in a bunker, welcome back. A lot has happened since you hid in your bunker. Mostly this thing called the internet that you are viewing for the first time. It’s basically the most important thing to happen ever. Because there is this thing called a blog that I use to make fun of you and the 6 billion other citizens of the world. By the way, there are 6 billion people on the earth now. Anyways, so the Cubs broke their “curse” of not being able to win, so it had to be transferred to me. Ever since they won, I have lost every game I…

I am sooo soooo sooo tired but I voted and so should everyone else! The only persons that “own” votes are each individual and they only own their own. ERGO…your vote counts! There is no such thing as a wasted vote only those who waste. (Time-money-relationships-life-other peoples’ time…..o and of course votes by not voting)

You can not legitimately bitch if you didn’t join the fray.

Thus Spake druastrutha
Wasters. ~~dru~~

In Saner Thought

AS the election slowly arrives the call now is from the candidates that are telling the American voter that if they vote for anyone other than the two clowns then they will be handing the election to the other camp…..personally I believe that it is bullshit from the ground up.

Of course these naysayers will trot out the 2000 election and the Bush win as an example….you remember the old “wasted vote” dodge, right?

This whole paradigm they have set up is a MYTH (do I need to explain what a myth is?)

Third parties split votes

“A vote for a third party is a vote for the (Republican or Democrat) party candidate,” equals “You must vote for the (Republican or Democrat) party candidate.”

First, the two parties do not “own” any votes. Therefore, a vote for the Veterans Party of America’s candidate does not take a vote from either party…
