First, this extremely late whole Brett Kavanaugh thing. This is the United States. In this country, if you are accused of a crime, I don't give a rat's ass how heinous the accusations are, you are an innocent human being unless and until you are found guilty in a U.S. court of law. As an American citizen who gives a damn about this particular quaint notion, and, well, given the fact that Kavanaugh wasn't actually on trial for anything, I say he remains innocent.

But...

As a human being who's 1) been on the receiving end of abuse, physical and mental, from other human beings over his 48-plus years, 2) has never been comfortable with doing the same sort of harm to others that's been done to him, even on those occasions when he has done so, and for that reason, 3) knows exactly what the warning "beware of battling monsters lest you become one" means...

I think Brett Kavanaugh is guilty as sin. Dr. Ford, to me, looked and sounded the way I felt at certain points in my life when I wanted to just crawl into a dark space and be forgotten, if not die. As an American citizen who roots for democracy, I say he's innocent until proven guilty.

As a human being, I say Brett Kavanaugh is a load of shit.

And as for that just now...

There were suspicious packages meant for Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, George Soros, CNN, and others. They were explosive devices. Odd how only Democratic leaders were on those receiving ends.

Then again, Donald Trump has both a years-long and well-documented history of demonizing anyone and everyone who criticizes him. Again, I'm an American citizen, and Trump has the same right to free speech as the rest of us. Crooked Hillary, the Left Mob, Horseface Daniels -- yeah yeah, ha ha, ho ho, chuckle chuckle. He's so cute when he's ugly.

Here's the bitch of it all: Trump is on record saying the mainstream media is the enemy of the people.

You know who else said that? Mao Tse-tung. And another who else? Joseph Stalin. Two staunch-ass Communists that every single right-wing conservative in the United States of America worth their salt would have faced one-on-one in any dark alley on our Lord's blue-green orb before Donald Trump bitch-owned them the way Vladimir Putin's bitch-owned Trump for the most part lately.

Point being, I hate bullies.

If you are accused of being a bully, I'm inclined to hate you. It's in my history as well as my nature. But I step aside. Let the court decide.

I just hope for your sake, you're truly innocent. Imagine being a committed right-winger invoking the words of Mao to justify making America great again in full support of building a wall thirty years after their previous Great White Hopester, Ronald Reagan said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

Yeah, you dumbass troglodytes, I used Ronald Reagan against you. Wasn't hard -- unlike you, Reagan actually had a conscience.

Okay, I'm done. Still hate bullies?

How the hell is this even possible?


Of all the bands in the world that were both active in 1969 and are still active today, as far as I know, only King Crimson is more powerful and energetic now than it was then.

I was born in 1970. Frankly, I believe I had more power and energy then than I do now.

This friggin' band...

I don't understand it. But I certainly love it...
