Quick Hits: “White People”, the NFL, Skittles

Oh boy I’ll start with skittles. Apparently this analogy angers the crap out of progessional victims, thin-skinned morons, and the press. But I repeat myself. I’m sure it also touches on victim blaming somehow. But look: if you know something has a risk, you minimize that risk. I know that bullets come out of my gun so I don’t look… Read more »

Deplorable

Adam Lawson   September 13, 2016   No Comments on Deplorable

Who you callin’ deplorable? This week has been long, and it’s only Tuesday. I might be a bit short. I might be a bit acidic — I might channel the ol’ Acidman. Because this is some bullshit. It’s no coincidence that within a week of Clinton saying that around thirty-million Americans are deplorable (or, belong in a basket thereof) —… Read more »

What Hillary Will Do

Imagine: We already know that Hillary is the third Obama term. She will continue what he has started. This means, in no specific order: – Further mid-east adventurism, spilling blood and spending treasure with no clear goals. – Further degrading our relationship with Russia. Funny how four years ago Russia was no big threat when Romney brought them up, but… Read more »

Neoconservative Men Hate Women

Especially Intimidating Women I never thought I’d agree with leftists and social justice types about anything when it comes to neocons. But lately, looking at the actions of a few prominent neoconservative men, I cannot help but notice that many of them have deep-seated issues with women. These issues are magnified — “bigly” — when the woman is in some… Read more »

Abandon by Blake Crouch

Minor Spoilers for review purposes follow In short: Abandon by Blake Crouch is a good thriller, with a decent enough mystery aspect. Over-all, if that’s the sort of book you want to read then it’s for you — but don’t expect the supernatural, as the Amazon categorization is a misdirection for the sake of the mystery aspect, and don’t expect… Read more »

A Tale of Two Films

Here we go again Compare: Several critics (and several more SJWs) have complained about Suicide Squad. It’s been called all manner of names. To be upfront, I have not seen it and have little interest in doing so (especially at a theater), and so my thoughts are limited to the reaction. It’s been pretty negative. Nobody involved in the movie… Read more »

August Status Update

Here We Go Books The next Cigars and Legs collection is off to the proofreader. After that, barring any major problems, it’s just minor fixes and cover time. Other than Cigars and Legs I’ve mostly focused on a new series. They won’t be books but I am toying with the idea of doing a chapter-a-week (or month) web-series. Reviews I… Read more »

DNC E-Mail Leaks

I wanted to take a few days to let the information settle and see how the Convention started before commenting on the DNC’s leaked e-mails. I have a few thoughts: It won’t impact the election. While people are rightly outraged and Bernie supporters are swearing up and down they won’t vote for Hillary — this won’t make a dent in… Read more »

Post-RNC Thoughts

Despite Media, A Good Week for Trump Let’s just do this the way I do book reviews: Good, Bad, Ugly. The Good Trump’s Family — young, healthy, energetic, well-spoken. His kids gave great speeches without any major (or really, minor) glitches or trip-ups. Despite the media focus on Melania Trump’s “plagiarism”, the speech itself was good and well received —… Read more »
