#Feelthejohnson

A few days ago JimmyC wrote a post about Libertarians. I loved the cartoon! I’m not going to take the time to defend the party (and they seem about as inept as the GOP right now), but I want to point out something no one seems to be stating about Governor Johnson.

Despite whatever […]

It’s Morning in America!

Let Freedom Ring!

Behold, Threedonia!

As readers of the site know, Floyd made frequent use of an image of an overweight, slovenly, Mediteranean looking man. An image that came to be infamously known as “manboobs.” In the spirit of a new beginning spurred by Floyd’s demolition of the old site I propose a new image for Threedonia 2.0. A beginning […]

Rule Britainna!

I am surprised, and pleased, by the results of the British referendum to leave the EU. I think it’s the right decision, and can’t state my reasons any better than Daniel Hammond did in his recent speech, so I won’t try.

This is significant, very, very significant for a lot of reasons. I’ll make […]

Rufus Explains That Everyone Else is Wrong

OK, maybe I could have chosen some words better and maybe you’re not all, technically wrong, but my hyperbole got you to read this post.

My “Innovation Stagnation” post turned into a debate over the definition of paradigm shift in technology instead of the larger point I tried and failed to make.

JimmyC and […]

Innovation Stagnation

Lars and JimmyC wrote today about technological progress. Specifically the progress witnessed by their grandfathers. I too used to marvel at all my oldest, surviving grandmother had witnessed in her life span (roughly 1908-2004). Like them, I doubt any other humans before or since will see the technological leaps they did.

As Lars and […]

Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia

A lot of folks whose views and opinions I typically respect are making statements like, “If you don’t vote for Trump you’re voting for Hillary.”

Look, I get it. I get the math. It is a 99.99999% likelihood the Democrat or Republican nominee for President will win the office this November. Therefore, if you […]

Freedom of Choice

Why Vote?

I’m hearing a lot of nonsense this election cycle. I know… What else is new? What is new for this year is a lot of talk around whether one should vote, or if one does not vote if one is wasting one’s vote, and, an even more popular offshoot; the folks who […]

Penultmate Political Party Post, Produce a Plethora

Finally, a Rufus post you Limey lovin’ Monarchists can get behind! Now that I’ve convinced each and every one of you of the folly of holding primaries to choose a political party’s candidate* now I’m going to reveal an even larger problem of political parties in the US.

Like George Washington I would prefer […]

Prompt Political Party Post

The Coca Cola and Pepsi corporations hold an election each year to determine who will be the Chairmen of their Boards. They do so by holding a meeting with the shareholders of the company; one share, one vote. Those who cannot attend the meeting can vote via the internet, phone or mail.

Let’s analogize… […]
