Cthulhu Dagon 2016

Yes, I am still a Bernie supporter. Yes, I am still a nasty unwashed hippy. Yes, I know the truth of the numbers. Yes, I still want some of my concerns to actually make it onto the party platform. Yes, I still believe that both Trump and Hillary are both demonic. Yes, I still believe that we are better off voting for the lesser evil once we have absolutely no choice. And that is why I am going to vote for Cthulhu/Dagon in November.

Cthulhu/Dagon 2016---because Killer Asteroid is not running.

Custom made chalices

And now a word from my sponsor (aka my wife):


Here are some of the chalices that were made recently. There is a large variety of symbols that can be used: Templar cross, Wicca pentacle, triple moon, and horned god. There are also several scrolls that can be applied. We have a variety of glaze colors to choose from; all of them are food safe. The chalices are hand thrown, underglazed and fired, then overglazed and fired a second time. The whole process from start to finish takes seven to eight weeks.

If you are interested in ordering a custom made chalice, check out Khari's Wiccan Treasures on Etsy.

How Trump can become President

Here is how Trump becomes President: 51% of the population embraces his special hatred of those they also hate while ignoring the fact that Trump also hates the 51% of the population voting for him.

A thought about GMOs

What gets me about the whole genetically-modified paranoia is that the regular wheat and corn, and everything else that is farmed, has been modified by human behavior. Corn started out as a grass with a low yield; yet over the course of human history, we selectly choose to plant seeds that resulted in our current corn on the cob. The difference is that we did not do it in a lab over a short decade, instead we took thousands of years to do it--nevertheless, we modified the genetics of the current corn plant long before we understood genetics. Everything that you buy in the grocery store has been genetically modified long before Monsanto was a glimmer in a caveman's eyes.

How about actually washing some dirty dishes?

Paul Ryan pretending to work in a soup kitchen.
As many of my readers know, I spent twenty years in the restaurant business--much of that time was spent washing dishes. Not pretending to wash dishes, like Paul Ryan did in a recent photo op.

Now, I realize that politicians pretend to care for the less fortunate, and to be regular joes who understand your pain, all the time. The Democrats are as guilty of the Republicans are--they are not regular joes; they are not our co-workers and drinking buddies.

Still, pretending to wash dishes? And then claiming that it was to draw attention to the work that a soup kitchen does. Really? You expect us to believe that you were trying to help out?

The Romney/Ryan ticket are really annoying me as a former restaurant employee and manager. First the Romney campaign gets upset at one restaurant owner for not allowing them to eat there, with the result being that death threats were made to the owner of the restaurant (just because someone shares your religion does not mean that they want to be seen endorsing you). And now, Ryan is annoying people by pretending to wash dishes.

Tell you what. Come to my house and wash some actual dirty dishes. Or the house of any random American. There are a ton of dirty dishes to be washed in this county. In fact, we will allow you to take before and after pictures. But do not tell us how this proves that you are just like us, and have our best interests at heart. We know better because we know that you never have to clean up after yourselves ever--you hire people like us to wash your dirty dishes. And we know that you do not actually go drinking with your help, or even care about them.

Yes, I am a happy cynic. A happy cynic who actually washes actual dirty dishes. For some reason, that makes me believe that I am more of a regular joe than Paul Ryan is.

Talk to my cat about your product and candidate

Please tell my cat all about your new product and/or political candidate.
Oh, how many more days until this election cycle is over--too many.

Last year at this time, I thought that I would be busy blogging about the latest election during this month. I did not realize that even I would be uninterested in the whole d*** thing.

Over the last past couple of weeks, I have been averaging a half dozen political calls a day. It has gotten to the point that I am not answering the phone if I do not see an actual name on the caller ID.

And I am on the verge of handing the phone to my cat--maybe he can summon up more interest in this election than I have been able to.

For the record, I have known for months who I am voting for...I think that most of my Facebook friends have figured it out also. So let's just vote today, and save ourselves a few weeks of pointless political ads and phone calls. If not, a lot of people are going to end up talking to my cat.
