Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

What Will They Kill Next?

Those darn Millenials!  They are killing…

Everything!

OK, so what did you have next in the dead pool?  Well, here’s what’s next: the Animatronic Band at Chuck E. Cheese!  That’s right, the chain that trained millions of American children to like bad pizza is discontinuing this amazingly creepy act.

And they blame millennials for this move.  Note to Chuck E.: Millennials did not kill this.

People with taste did.

Fort Sumter, VA

No, wait, Fort Sumter is in South Carolina.  What’s in Virginia?

Charlottesville.

With the Pumpkin supporting the bigots (there’s no other way to take the full week’s worth of his blather about it), well… I saw this map of how the US will look after the second Civil War.

After the WHAT??  You read it right.  By some definitions (click through the map… also see here) it has already started: last Saturday.

So… is this horrible?  That I looked at that map and thought, Hmm… could be worse…?

 

Drive that Train!

When I started this idea of Train Music Thursdays, the Ballad of Casey Jones was not far from my mind.  And it will definitely make an appearance.But then, when the Grateful Dead released this track by that name, nothing could have been further from that old folk song.

 

Because… OF COURSE THEY ARE

The Daily Stormer is a Nazi (no neo-, just plain Nazi) website that helped coordinate the racist thugs who wrecked Charlottesville this past weekend, and then crowed when Pumpkin blamed the anti-fascists.

When you run a Nazi website, you really don’t want a lot of visibility from civilized folks.  In the past few days, they have been kicked out by Go-Daddy, then by Google.  Finally, today, CloudFlare pulled the plug.

Pretty awesome.  And Nordstrom’s didn’t even drop his daughter’s clothing line!

So where are they now?  Where have they found, to spew hate from?  The answer is… let me just say… as soon as you know it… you will exclaim what I did, and what I put at the top of this post:

BECAUSE, OF COURSE THEY ARE!

The answer is, Daily Stormer is no longer a .com domain… it’s now dailystormer.ru; they’re now registered and hosted in Russia!

BECAUSE, OF COURSE THEY ARE!

It makes perfect sense, after all.  The current crop of Nazis, pumpkin included, are so fond of Putin, it only makes sense that this is where their web presence should land.  I wonder if they could get a deal for hosting whitehouse.gov?  I also wonder if Putin knows who Molotov and Ribbentrop were, and what Barbarossa was?

Tired

Pumpkin wears a person out, don’t he?

I’m going to sleep.
