Musings on The Freedom Rebellion….

John’s post on Alt Comics got me musing.(I hear they have a salve for it now…)

We are confronted by a huge monolith of media, google, facebook, etc, Hollywood and the whole of progressive thought police. Many worry, a few grab ice picks and begin chipping away. Sometimes they grab jackhammers and get elected POTUS.... [Read More]

TOTD 2018-09-21: Lawyers vs. Regulators

I’ve often wondered about the control of public menaces and hidden hazards (such as an undisclosed vat of toxic chemicals in the workplace, or a lack of purity in medicine) if we got rid of government regulatory bodies.  I’m not sure how a person would deal with a major public menace without filing a bankruptcy-inducing lawsuit.  It gets worse if the hazard is not immediately obvious.  Now you have to bring in an expert to make your case and get the data.  Better sell off your organs now before the chemicals damage them too much to be of value.

The government has tons of useless regulations, and some that are actively harmful.  (I’d bet losing 5% completely at random would not cause severe harm) However, I do not see why state governments doing regulation, with the feds stepping up for interstate cases, is worse that having to sue any time someone is not working safely, or polluting, or distributing contaminated medication.  In fact, the standard gives the employer some peace of mind – there is actually an achievable standard to meet as opposed to whatever a jury will think

Comics: Alt🟊Hero

Vox Day“Alt*Hero” by Vox Day’s talents span many media.  He has been a musician, composer, video game designer, computer peripheral inventor, game reviewer, polemicist (author of SJWs Always Lie among other works), book publisher, and activist in opposing the social justice warrior/political correctness infiltration of science fiction and fantasy publishing and fandom.

Believing that “politics is downstream of culture”, he is not one to see the culture be co-opted by the slavers without doing something about it.  One of his latest ventures is in a genre where the social justice warriors have inflicted massive damage on an innocent recreation that has entertained generations: superhero comic books....

Do you remember Goodbye Girl?

The Goodbye Girl (1977) is an American romantic comedy, written by Neil Simon. It’s a fun movie, with witty dialogue. My Film Group enjoyed the film.

Directed by Herbert Ross, the film is highly professional in every way. Richard Dreyfuss is delightful as Elliot Garfield, Marsha Mason is fairly attractive as Paula McFadden, the Goodbye Girl whom her husband divorced and her latest man friend has just abandoned. She seems such a shrew at the beginning of the movie, it hardly seemed surprising that men were saying goodbye to her. She was allowed to improve as the plot developed. Quinn Cummings deserves a mention as Lucy McFadden, Paula’s daughter.... [Read More]

J’accuse

It has come to my attention from a secret source that there are character issues dating back to high school. I will be sending RBI agents to your various houses. Please have your yearbooks ready. If you have any friends not in prison we would like to interview them also. Whatever you say will be kept in strict confidentiality and only shared with a few reporters I like.

Some may feel I am using this just to get even but that is not the case. I have the Purest MotivesTM. I would never take revenge like the last time. I have learned my lesson. ... [Read More]

Knowledge Base: Scheduling Posts

When you write a post for Ratburger and press the “Publish” button in the post composition window, the post is immediately published to the home page.  But sometimes you’d like a post to be published at some specific time in the future.  For example, if you’re writing a post for the Thought of the Day or one of our weekly series of posts, you may want the post to be published on the appointed day at a time when you might not be at the computer.

You can set a post to be published at any time and date in the future by using the “scheduled post” feature.  When you’re composing a post, in the “Publish” box to the right of the composition area (or below it on a narrow screen device such as a mobile phone or tablet), there’s an item which by default reads: “Publish immediately”.  If you press “Edit”, this expands into a set of fields which allows you to enter a date and time:...
