“ICYMI, Disney is making a TV show based on Christmas movie classic The Santa Clause and its two sequels.”
“Edited by Tolkien scholar Brian Sibley, the book provides new commentary while bringing all of Tolkien’s works on the Second Age together in one handy edition.”
Predictably after last week’s news, I had to rewatch the anime (which is… OK), but this song might be my favorite part of the whole series.
“John Williams Considering Retirement After Indiana Jones 5”
I thought he announced his retirement some years back.
I thought he was dead.
That was Plisskin.
That was Jacob McCandles.
Big Jake. I really liked that movie.
I thought he was dead 🙂
Oops, refresh fail.
Predictably after last week’s news, I had to rewatch the anime (which is… OK), but this song might be my favorite part of the whole series.
I was worried you were going to watch an anime about abortion.
Coming soon to Disney+ !
I’m pretty sure they tread that ground 30 years ago.
Disney is making a TV show based on Christmas movie classic The Santa Clause and its two sequels
Nope nope nopey nope fuck nope
How is it a classic? It was made after I was born.
It hasn’t aged particularly well, either.
You are a classic, that’s how.
Don’t look at what’s considered classic rock or oldies now.
+1 Pearl Jam
Will Chris Evans play the lead?
This time Santa will be a drag queen.
haha, winner winner!
Chris Evans will play the lead role.
2 hour tape delay?
Indiana Jones V: The Quest for the Reconstructed Hip
For the love of God, end it already.
If Sharknado can make six films, so can Indy.
Disney is if one thing, a rapist that makes sure even the near dead get it good and hard.
Well, they could probably do worse than the fourth one.
You underestimate the power of Disney
I meant it sincerely: I’m pretty sure as big a turkey as #4 was, they could come up with something even worse.
I misread what you wrote. /cheers!
Is Harrison Ford going to escape the bad guys on a Rascal scooter? I might pay to see that.
There’s a bidding war between them and Hoveround for the product placement rights even as we speak.
Early in the movie his mission will be foiled when he’s hiding from the bad guys but is discovered when he accidentally bumps his LifeAlert pendant and the operator loudly asks if he needs help.
But the bad guys only have walkie-talkies, so he spends the movie fleeing their lecture on why he’s evil for behind a white man.
I’m betting that, no matter the outcome of this one, the HurryCane is gonna make bank. I mean, sword canes and all…
Those are Still illegal in New York.
New York can’t have Mr. Stabby. He’s safe here in Texas.
NH is not that far away. NH has no knife laws.
Listen to DEG and move to NH.
If I’m going to uproot, I’m not moving deeper into New England.
There’s several houses for sale around me then.

I keep seeing people concern trolling that Roe v Wade was actually protecting us from vaccine mandates. I’ve never understood the privacy argument to Roe to begin with. Any experts want to weigh in here?
Not an expert, but what a stupid argument. If it does anything, it leaves mandates at the state level and explicitly forbids the Feds from saying anything.
Overturning Roe, that is.
Let me guess… those same people are for vaccine mandates and abortion.
In other words, if abortion is ok because of privacy rights, then it’s not that abortion is ok, it’s that government can’t compel a doctor or woman to say that they performed/had an abortion. Which doesn’t reflect the reality of the past 50 years or whatever.
Not an expert, but yeah, it’s just BS.
Frankly, my first (and I’ll repeat it some) response to seeing Roe overturned is “So the masks didn’t work after all.”
To me that’s what was written on every mask – “Keep Abortion Legal”. Friends get ticked off when I say it. But it’s true. They were part of the whole plan to “fortify” the election (with all that means), and for the ones pulling the strings, keeping Roe was at/near the top of their list.
So – turns out the masks didn’t work.
Absolutely and I have said it here before. The mask mandates and lockdowns helped to bring about the end of Roe. If it ain’t my body my choice whether I need to wear a useless piece of cloth on my face to be allowed to do basic activities, then it ain’t your body or your choice to have that fetus taken out. They might not like it, but they helped to make that bed so they can lie in it.
I’m going to disagree with you slightly here. I don’t think the mask mandate did anything besides remind us of the unprincipled and hypocritical positions of the average lefty. The left did shoot themselves in the foot here though.
Despite knowing for 50 years that Roe vs. Wade was a dubious precedent that may eventually be overturned, congressional democrats did literally nothing to try and push legislation through that they knew full well would put abortion “rights” on much firmer footing despite the fact that they had multiple times where they had enough seats to plausibly make that happen. They paid lip service to their constituency and then acted like the security guard in Austin Powers waiting for the steam roller to slowly run them down. All because it was a bottomless well for their fundraising dollars. The GOP didn’t do this (literally, they had nothing to do with this), SCOTUS only corrected the problem by saying this is a matter for legislators. Democratic legislators did this by refusing to take action to enshrine what they believe to be a “fundamental” right into law for their own selfish reasons.
If you’re a progressive who truly believes your rights are violated, you should be looking at your own congress critters the same way the parents in Uvalde are looking at their police force right now. Not only did they do nothing for decades, they actively prevented anyone from doing anything about it so they could have a wedge issue always at the ready. Daily reminder: your government and your “representatives” don’t give a shit about you or what you want. Sorry for the rude awakening.
This might be my favorite thing to point out to progressives.
The politicians themselves know full well that the idea of completely unrestricted abortion is deeply unpopular even among the general D voting block. That means they would have to pick a point where they think it’s no longer okay to abort. Once you pick that point, you’re going to start a firestorm and possibly open yourself up to *gasp* losing an election. Better to do what all congress critters do now. Remain uncommitted and wishy washy on all positions except those dolled out by the party that will be held uniformly by all other critters and hide behind SCOTUS/executive branch/unelected bureaucracy to do your job so you can keep your fancy position in perpetuity. The only thing these people are good for now is starting fights on social media, showing up to photo ops, getting a couple of grandstanding questions in at a random hearing to use in their reelection commercials and voting however their paymasters tell them to. The idea that you have “representation” in our federal government is about as provably false as Santa Claus.
Wow. Mind if I quote this in a blog post Monday?
I would be honored Animal. I really like and appreciate your writing.
Thanks! I was working on a post about the Supreme Court decisions, read your comment, and realized I couldn’t have said it better myself.
I would just remind you that Democrats couldn’t even get past the Hyde amendment, and you expect them to actually do something more than spending money?
Yeah, I’ve been saying for years there is zero chance that the House or Senate will pass any sort of abortion legalization. The whole point of RvW was to allow them to not have to touch that third rail.
There’s something to it. Several months ago Ozy linked to an article that argued that the 1905 Supreme Court ruling on Jacobson v. Massachusetts (smallpox vaccine) was de facto overturned decades ago by a series of rulings broadly affirming personal autonomy (from Loving v. Virginia to Roe v. Wade to Lawrence v. Texas to whatever that legalized gay marriage). Obviously, some of the rulings are more solid than others. But that’s the argument.
I read Roe decades ago, when I was in law school, so this is from memory. Blackmon drew on earlier cases that relied on the 5th Amendment to find a privacy interest. Griswold v. Connecticut being a prime example (a married couple has a Constitutional right to purchase condoms). In as much as it relied on those types of cases, it was inoffensive. But to get where he wanted to go, he then got into the famous “emanations and penumbras.” It was the homeopathy of Constitutional interpretation. It wasn’t the amendment or something directly derived from the amendment, it some second or third order effect. I was ardently pro-choice when I read the opinion. Even as a law student, I thought it was poorly reasoned.
I don’t understand, at all, how Roe could be argued to protect us from vaccine mandates. Roe involved woman being able to obtain a procedure the state made illegal. In other words, the woman is seeking the procedure. The vaccine mandates are about the state requiring a procedure the patient wants to resist.
So Griswold took a Vacation
No debate, no committee…perfectly republican in nature in the way of governance.
Looking forward to the supreme court overturning it 7 years from now.

Update… House passes red flag gun-grabbing bill…
In an interview with the Associated Press, Williams revealed that he’s strongly considering retiring after he completes the music for the still-untitled Indiana Jones 5, which is out next summer. “At the moment I’m working on Indiana Jones 5, which Harrison Ford—who’s quite a bit younger than I am—I think has announced will be his last film,” Williams said. “So, I thought: if Harrison can do it, then perhaps I can, also.” The AP notes that Ford himself hasn’t said that publicly, but Williams just did, and so we’ll concentrate on that.
It’s an odd numbered Indiana Jones movie. It might be good.
What could possibly go wrong?
“It has been a great honor to have been entrusted with the task of bringing together J.R.R. Tolkien’s writings (under the editorship of Christopher Tolkien) relating to the dramatic history spanning the Second Age of Middle-earth,” said Sibley. “I hope that this opportunity to read, as a single narrative, an account of those years, will provide a new appreciation of how the monumental events of the Second Age were to impact on those told in The Lord of the Rings.”
The Fall of Númenor also includes ten new color plates by classic Tolien illustrator Alan Lee, featuring scenes such as the building of Barad-dûr and Galadriel leading the Elves through Khazad-dûm.
Alan Lee is an excellent illustrator. But I’m a little worried about Tolkien’s work being shit on.
How can it be 5? They NEVER made a 4.
Be happy it’s not something like a number in the middle of the word in palce of a letter, or an unnumbered sequel that would need a year attached to it.
Geriatric Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Train of Thought
I grew up on the LOTR books and movies, but only recently got into the events of the first and second ages thru YouTube videos. It’s incredible how tame and low stakes the events of LOTR are compared to the massive conflicts between the elves and men and melkor
Yeah, Tolkien was really all about the FA and SA, TA was an afterthought, and the Hobbit was just something he knocked out to serialize and send to his son who was fighting in WW2. He was somewhat like Lovecraft about this — ie, not recognizing his best IP.
the Hobbit was just something he knocked out to serialize and send to his son who was fighting in WW2
That was LoTR.
“The Hobbit” had already been written by the time the War started.
Its an Amazon show, it might work out, the fall of Numenor is my favorite part of the entire story.
The wife and I each got a Dynamic Disks starter set. Your evangelizing resulted in two more players, Bob. 😁
I love social media on day’s like today. It’s a pleasure to find out just how dumb some of my friends are, and even funnier that they think broadcasting their marginally researched opinions is actually a good look for them.
I always find it telling, though.
Today is the greatest conservative victory that’s happened in my lifetime
I see so few unpaid conservatives gloating about it, though. Just normal silence and talking about their families.
I’m not really a social conservative myself, but man do they ever do it right.
I haven’t opened Facebook in two days. Good job, me.
It’s impolite to have conservative views and even more impolite to espouse them. Most conservatives know this.
Most of those conservatives probably work, and someone is sure to go tattling to the boss if someone commits wrongthink. No way is anythinkingconservative going to gloat on social media.
Heaven knows, it only took my husband once to learn that even a hint of a marginal opinion that had nothing to do with much of anything can land you in trouble at work if even one person of a “protected” class finds it “offensive.”
Mo’, I wanted to to tell you I really enjoy Paul Davids’ videos. I’ve watched about 5-6 other ones since you linked to him. And I don’t, never have, and likely never will play guitar. He’s really good at what he does.
I do play guitar and he really does have one of the best channels out there. My favorite is Rick Beato. He covers guitar playing, music theory, production, song writing and excellent commentary on all things music and the music industry and does it all with a heavy dose of salty, no bullshit personality. Even if you aren’t a musician or in production his series “What Makes This Song Great” is a must watch where he often gets the actual artist to come on and commentate.
Paul Davids and Rick Beato may be my favorite examples of why the death of the gatekeepers is so great. These guys would never be given a show in a million years, yet without TV executives they’ve amassed a following of millions with a product that absolutely destroys what music journalism has been creating for decades in terms of depth, actual expertise, authenticity and entertainment value.
I watched a Rick Beato video on the top 20 most unique guitar solos a while back. The guy’s energy and passion is infectious. I’ll have to watch some more.
And you’re so right about the death of the gatekeepers. Unfortunately there’s always a new gatekeeper.
Sure, it’s a never ending battle, but gatekeepers have about 1/100th the power they did even 20 years ago. It is a mixed bag, watching TikTok videos and realizing how much money and influence that a few of the worst examples of our species are able to amass is definitely nauseating, but that’s part of the free market. The best get better and the worst get worse. At least I can easily ignore the worst.
For sure, the new gatekeepers have nowhere near the same power. And as you say, on the whole it’s good.
You’re being generous.
Reading some of the comments on Twitter, I’m not sure people understand our Constitution at all. They sure FEEL like this is wrong, but there isn’t any legal reasoning or logic behind their arguments and raging.
To even try to understand it you have to read it first.
Too Local News:
Mixed bag news from Sununu according to Rebuild NH (formerly Reopen NH):
– Vetoes HB 1022, the ivermectin standing order bill, saying that ivermectin is still available via prescription and drugs available in the state without a prescription have been thoroughly vetted. Ivermectin has not been similarly vetted according to Sununu. He ignores ivermectin’s long history. He also ignores that doctors and pharmacists won’t touch it thanks to the state medical board and state pharmaceutical board. One not often talked about facet of HB 1022 is it reigns in the state medical board, state pharmaceutical board, and state nursing board with respect to their attempts to prevent medical professionals from prescribing/filling prescriptions for/using ivermectin.
– Signs HB 1495 – prohibiting the state and all political subdivisions of the state from requiring businesses to require vaccination/proof of vaccination/proof of immunity.
– Signs HB 1604 – adds state medical facilities to the statute providing medical freedom in immunizations.
– Signs HB 1606 – Makes the state vaccine registry opt-in.
So, nothing that deletes the registry and the people who required it?
No, the registry isn’t going away. I think there was a version of HB 1606 that makes it easier to get yourself out of the registry if you are in. I don’t know if that is in the final bill, and I’m feeling a bit too lazy to look it up.

I’m sure there is no cause for this.
I don’t give a flying fuck about DC. Burn it all down.
^Let the summer of love commence.
Yep, it begins tonight.
Let’s hope they do. The progressive over-reaction right now hurts Dem candidates. A fresh reminder that it’s the left/progressive folks that usually are burning shit down and cause mayhem would be good timing ahead of the midterms.
It’s a Friday, and I’m home so here’s the link to the Zoom/Happy Hour/RvW laughter which will be started at 20:00 Eastern.
Yay! I hope to be there.
Ooohh, I’m getting rummy.
I am looking forward to some of these clowns burning their Notorious RBG memorabilia.
They did it. THEY DID IT TO US! #SCOTUS has overturned #RoevWade, enshrined in the Constitution as settled law for over 50 years. How dare they? This #SCOTUS is absolutely tone-deaf to the will and even the actual needs of the American people. #WakeUpAmerica
That’s not how any of this works.
Women have no right to make their own reproductive health decisions. Separation of Church and State is being obliterated. Everyone has a right to carry a concealed firearm. We’re being tyrannized by an Autocratic minority.
The autocrats want us to be armed!
Those replies are something else.
Yeah, I skimmed through them and the replies make Reiner look smart.
“This #SCOTUS is absolutely tone-deaf to the will and even the actual needs of the American people.”
Step out of your bubble, Bette. Most people favor at least some restrictions on abortion, and for most it’s not a high priority. But go ahead and think that this will make a big difference in the next election.
No one I know voted for Nixon.
I’m not linking to TOS, but their reaction is as terrible as you’d expect.
Settled law. Settled science. I’m not sure those words mean what progressives THINK they mean.
“The ratchet is only supposed to go ONE way!”
Dead from the neck up.
Yes, that us really a thing. Set your keys in a tin at night. Also – where are your spare keys? Get those keys out of the kitchen drawer and into a metal box.
If you have the RFID interceptor and coding device you can easily grab onto a signal when someone is locking or unlocking or even standing next to their car. You can even do this at a small distance away. So if say a thief wants your vehicle they just pull up somewhere near you when you park, pull out their device and pretend they are working on a computer and intercept your signal. They can then open, close and start your vehicle at will. It’s easier now than ever to be a car thief.
The thief is wearing a Phillies baseball cap. Boo!
And just like that Virginia is a Handmaid’s tale dystopia.
My statement on Supreme Court’s Dobbs Ruling Announcement
4 months to make a decision is not enough.
“It is DOA — dead on arrival … I will not allow Virginia to be turned back,” Virginia state Senate President pro tempore @SenLouiseLucas told @BrettHNews about Gov. Youngkin’s plans for a 15-week abortion ban.
I would imagine most states will do this. And most people in those states will be fine with it.
I think somewhere around 15-19 will be the law in most states.
There is no room for fun and games here.
Qatar has just announced that it will be enforcing a sex ban ahead of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, meaning one-night stands could face seven years behind bars if convicted.
According to the Daily Star, there have been reports of fans with different surnames being held from booking and sharing the same room. The World Cup is notorious for its drinking and party culture after matches, however, that won’t be the case in Qatar. “With very strict and scary consequences if you are caught. There is a feeling this could be a very bad tournament indeed for fans.” said a source.
A police source added, “Sex is very much off the menu, unless you are coming as a husband and wife team. There definitely will be no one-night stands at this tournament.”
“There will be no partying at all really. Everyone needs to keep their heads about them, unless they want to risk being stuck in prison. There is essentially a sex ban in place at this year’s World Cup for the first time ever. Fans need to be prepared.”
The US could host with 4 months notice.
I’m assuming this applies to the players as well. I mean what’s the point of being a star athlete if you can’t bang groupies.
The Persian Gulf isn’t the place to go to party and hookup? The hell you say!
I was laughing about that when Saudi Arabia offered to host Oktoberfest last year after Germany cancelled it.
Thefuck? For real?
Yeah, anyone who goes in there blind gets what they deserve.
I’ve heard that Dubai is just the place for that. Allegedly.
No one-night stands? Am I good if I book multiple nights?
One-night sit-downs are still being evaluated for approval.
I blame the Republicans.
So which of the 57 states in the US is this theocratic dystopia?
“Anyone I disagree with is an extremist.”
“We have six extremist justices on the United States Supreme Court who have decided that their moral and religious views should be imposed on the rest of America. This is not what America wants. And in a democracy, on this issue, the Supreme Court does not get the last word. The people do. And we are going to fight back. We’ve got tools. We’re going to use them, and in November, we’re going to make sure that we elect enough people who believe in that democracy that we can pass Roe v. Wade and make it the law of the land again. Only this time, we’ll do it by statute and enforce it.”
I don’t understand what you cuntes don’t understand about federalism regarding something that has been ruled to not be a federal issue.
I know some people think overturning RvW hurts the GOP in the upcoming midterms, but I disagree. The progressives tantrum we’re seeing, this HELPS the GOP for the midterms! The whole “your killing democracy because X” is getting old. It’s over the top non-sense and even some progressives are getting tired of it. It definitely alienates many “swing” voters.
This kind of pants shitting tends to turn most people off.
It is possible that conservative-types will be energized to vote for GOP candidates in the upcomin’. “Say! Voting does work! Even if it takes a delete decades to pan out! We have the initiative, now, and need to press on!”
I wasn’t planning on voting at all this year, but then the Ron Paul types took over the LP leadership, I thought I’d venture out with an LP voter guide in hand this November.
The conspiracy theorist in my brain wonder if this decision on RoevWade was timed to keep conservative types from taking a second look at this new LP. “We can’t give up on the Republican Party now; look how it suddenly and surprisingly succeeded!”
They should fight back. They should work hard to pass whatever laws they want in their state. Nobody is telling them they can’t.
But that’s hard work.
“BUT WHAT ABOUT DEMOCRACY!!! Oh wait…” – Every fucking over-reacting, idiot progressive right now.
All because a certain heroic stunning brave women didn’t retire while Obama was President. Heh.
I love how they consider returning the issue of abortion back to the states, subject to democracy within the states, and taking it out of the hands of 9 robed jurists, is a usurpation of democracy.
These people are retarded.
Perhaps the best part is the potential that abortion will become a much less important issue in national politics.
There are no longer black robes, only red and blue- actual facebook post
If they want a national right, they could always go the constitutional route and gin up support for an Amendment.
They know they aren’t even close to 50% support on that, at least not without compromises which they clearly don’t want to make.
So instead they just throw another hussy fit.
That’s quite the hot take.
According to our current SCOTUS states cannot restrict your right to carry a weapon but they can restrict your right to expel a foreign object from inside your body.
From the replies, someone I actually agree with:
Given 2A Zealots claim it’s all about “bearing arms to oppose tyranny” perhaps every woman & girl in the US should exercise their 2A rights.”
This gotcha didn’t work with ethnic minorities, it’s certainty not gonna work with women.
Idk. Asian business owners in Cali sure figured it out!
See my comment above about Constitutional ignorance. It’s no wonder our country is such a fucking mess. This isn’t difficult. The 2A gives you the right own/carry a gun. Abortion rights were made up bullshit. Even RGB knew RvW was a bullshit decision.
Technically, the right to bear arms is God-given (for whatever value of God); the 2A just puts it in obvious print so that nobody can say you don’t have that right since the Constitution doesn’t mention it.
(Yes, I know the 9A is basically a dead letter.)
The BoR are limitations on the government stated in the negative. The powers of the government are given and stated in the affirmative. The constitution gives to and (ostensibly) restricts the government.
And progressives have hated that model from their earliest days.
I am physically ill right now at this news. Just get me a shock collar and shackles and make me bend to every man’s will. What’s next, our right to vote because we are “too emotional” for rational thought
Those are acceptable terms.
I feel like, if they really wanted to “win” on abortion they would focus on people who actually might need one, like Appalachian Amber with the meth addiction that is going to deliver a severely fucked up baby or the homeless lady who is banging nine different dudes for some cigarettes and fentanyl. You know, actual people who probably should not have babies instead of middle class white chicks (who probably won’t have kids anyway) who live in states where abortion is legal anyway.
Shades of Margret Sanger.
Social hygiene for the win!
If you don’t want to be accused of being “too emotional”, don’t be too emotional. 🤷🏻♂️
That’s some right wing bullshit right there.
Ladies. “Mansplaining” is short for “man explaining”.
Whatever your kink is, that’s cool Abbeye. You do you.
because we are “too emotional” for rational thought
Tell me you are without telling me you are.
Only libertarian women may vote.
All 4 of them! LOL!
Your daily dose of Sanford & son:
John Williams sucks ass.
Are you just trying to be provocative? I know that musical taste is subjective, but somehow that is objectively incorrect. I would listen to an argument that he’s over-rated. You cannot say with a straight face that he is not an incredibly talented musical mind.
There are plenty of very talented people who make lousy music, and plenty of relatively untalented people who make good music.
“Pro-choice extremists plan ‘Night of Rage’ across America with Justice Clarence Thomas’ home on the hit list after he said SCOTUS should ‘now reconsider’ gay marriage and contraception”
They seem nice.
That’s pretty much a different direction from how conservatives were earlier spinning it that it wouldn’t affect any other rulings.
It might affect other rulings, but SCOTUS doesn’t just issue opinions. I’m sure Justice Thomas would love to revisit a lot of prior rulings but he (and the Court) can’t until a case is properly before them. Go read through any number of concurring and dissenting opinions, they say all manner of things that will never make it into the common law.
As much shit as we give them they still have rules which (until recently with the RvW leak) are incredibly important. I don’t think anyone really wants to see a country where the Supreme Court has the autonomy to make laws.
ENB will be along shortly to instruct us all that this is a false flag.
As long as she brings me a sandwich.
I have fewer rights than a gun.
Fewer brain cells as well.
A gun cannot have an abortion, either.
Criminalizing abortion won’t stop it.
The court didn’t criminalize it. And apply this logic to
“BREAKING NEWS: Federal court BLOCKS FDA’s ban on Juul e-cigarettes after firm was ordered to stop selling them on health grounds”
The FDA shouldn’t have anything to do with it. Neither should the ATF.
Jeez, the lower courts too? They better get to packin’ in a hurry.
*Celebratory vape cloud blows out Rhywun’s window.
The whole thing is so disgustingly stupid and corrupt.
I don’t care which brand the State “allows” me to inhale, I just need the fix.
I can’t be arsed to look into it more, but that they ban Juul (even after they bent over backwards so far they were facing forward again) but “allow” the other companies to carry on as usual is mind-blowing.
The State is going to make you better brother!
“The father of a young murder victim was caught on camera charging through an Ohio courtroom in a bid to attack the man accused of killing his son.
Footage shows Antonio Hughes walking from the back row of the Hamilton County courtroom up to the defense table where murder suspect Desean Brown, 22, was sitting.
Brown is accused of stabbing Nyteisha Lattimore, 29, to death in December 2020 before throwing her son Nylo, three, into the Ohio River and leaving him to drown. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
Hughes has not been charged but was escorted out of the courtroom by police.”
Okay, I’m sure I’m doing something wrong. I’ve installed Tampermonkey for Brave on my Brave browser, and then the latest Monocle. I got nuthin’.
Check the thermostat.
Monocle or Eyepiece?
Monocle, as that’s what’s recommended for PC browsers, basically.
Try Eyepiece. That’s what I use. IIRC trshy says to always use Eyepiece as it’s the newer one.
I couldn’t make it work.
(But I’m borderline retarded)
You want Eyepiece. Try this link, Tampermonkey should install it for you.
Sadly, it didn’t work.
I haz a sad.
Get a better browser.

Prediction – there will be minimal to no violence over Roe being overturned. Middle class progressive Karens are not the stuff that revolutions are made of. The minority groups aren’t going to take to the streets over this. The middle class white guys who make up Antifa are motivated by free shit and envy of the rich.
I’d definitely agree with you. Even here in the Bay Area there was very muted protest when the decision was leaked a couple months back. I know there are some protests around this weekend but I can’t imagine they will be anything like Hot Floyd Summer.
Most women are going to be Elaine Benis-ing tonight, buying up all their favorite contraceptives because they know the SCOTUS patriarchy is going to ban them next term.
The girlfriend ignored my advise and went onto Facebook today, she said several people were afraid that contraception would be banned.
I informed her that the Republicans had introduced several bills to make birth control OTC… which were blocked by the Democrats.
Who will be sponge-worthy?
I’d agree that their won’t be widespread rioting, but I am sure we’ll see target attacks by small groups of true believers like the Jane’s Revenge idiots.
They have already firebombed pro-life places. They will burn some churches and clinics for sure.
Shoot on sight.
Yup. and we all need to take them at their word that they’ll do more. There’s going to be destruction, I pray there isn’t death.
That’s a very good prediction. My main concern right now is violence against the judges. Not so much violence in the streets.
Now they say that everyday is just a rotten mess and in the tries if ask these people don’t you know that this could start, on any street in any town, in any place it any v clown decides that now the time is right to fight for some ideal he thinks is right…

I need to get to Alaska.
I’m not a choo-choo guy, but that looks amazing! You should totally do it!
Reminds me of my trip from Toronto to Regina back in 1962 with my Mom, on a CN train, of course.

Eh, I’m not against being murdered in principle. Per Woody Allen, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.
That would be cool.
