The title should be something fundamental; understood, appreciated and upheld by everyone. That’s because the statement stems from America’s much-touted, storied past, when the written rule of law was practically non-existent, yet there nevertheless was a tangible, un-written code of conduct that those rugged early citizens attempted to live by.
Arizona State Senate candidate Bobby Wilson shot and killed his mother in 1963
This code came about not through happenstance but rather because of the nature of the human condition, man versus man. It was his earliest attempts to control his baser instincts, drives and natures that surely would’ve rode us to extinction by now, had it not been for the code. Today, it’s heralded mostly in pulp fiction and lore but truly, it still exists, or should exist, in the psyche of modern-day man. I’m talking about the code of the west. Continue reading
point of order – A claim made by a senator from the floor that a rule of the Senate is being violated. If the chair sustains the point of order, the action in violation of the rule is not permitted.
Glossary of the United States Senate
We heard that a lot for a bit, with the total replay that is cable news. Democrats repeatedly called for points of order during the Strzok hearings, challenging the procedure, usually on the heels of seemed personal attacks or other unfounded allegations of “Deep State” or other fanciful intrusions.
Frankly, the Republican claim that the FBI is part of a “deep state” should be considered in the light in which it’s been offered; a ludicrous attempt to immunize a president from political and criminal harm; a president they’re not even sure of how deep his involvement in Russian election meddling goes.

Let’s be clear; by “America” I mean, white America, unfortunately. Continue reading
It would probably be too dire of me to ask if everybody knew what the truth was. So, I’ll take a different tact.
We all know or knew of a person, either we went to school with someone, worked on the job with someone or was in the military, especially in the military with someone like that, who at the end of the day was really full of shit. We accept them for what and who they are; we acknowledge that they lie but because they may be part of our circle, we tolerate them; even at times enjoying their company. But always, we recognize that what they’re selling is a bunch of fake. We derisively yet jokingly say, “That mother%*cker can’t be relied on” or words to that effect. They’re not necessarily friends but yet sometimes more than acquaintances. Continue reading
Everyone’s commenting on the development of Different and even I have to admit that he appears to be growing into his job. The change in confidence began when he made the announcement to the Press about the termination of embattled Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; the impromptu conference as he was boarding MAR1. He looked “presidential” answering questions, not seemingly from an earlier written and arranged script and doing so without flying ad lib as we’ve seen him do previously and recently. Yet his timely, positional acclimation shouldn’t calm our fears. Let me tell you why.
That’s because no one seems to understand the depths of how low Different is willing to go. And that’s because no one takes him for his word. We’ve come to accept his lies as hyperbolic affirmations, choosing to err on the side of comedy rather than tragedy. On the other hand, we should believe, understand and take literally everything that Different says; every bleeping thing. Continue reading
