Definitive Aggression List

11 May 2015

You’ve heard of micro-aggressions, but do you really know what they are? And are you familiar with the entire spectrum of aggressions, from the lowest end of the scale to the highest? Here is the definitive list…

Zepto-aggression: An extremely tiny aggression by the least wacky of the Marx Brothers, which usually goes completely unnoticed and overshadowed by those of his brothers.

Atto-aggression: Masculinist aggression, sometimes followed by a high five and “atta boy!” exclamation.

Femto-aggression: Somewhat more offensive aggression, but they won’t you WHY they’re being aggressive, because if you loved them, you’d know.

Nano-aggression: Usually comes in pairs, and is the annoyance you feel when exposed to too much of Robin Williams’ shtick at one sitting.

Micro-aggression: Aggression caused by television personality Mike Rowe, who apparently visits a lot of Ivy League colleges if all of the complaints are to be believed.

Milli-aggression: Aggression caused when you realized that the pop group you’ve been listening to doesn’t actually sing any of their songs, but merely lip-synchs them.

Centi-aggression: Being one penny short on the purchase price for something.

Deci-aggression: When your wife has some ’splainin to do.

Deca-aggression: Caused by hipsters endlessly bragging about the superiority of vinyl recordings.

Hecto-aggression: The kind that makes you yell out “What the heck?!”

Kilo-aggression: This aggression can lead you to murder the perpetrator.

Mega-aggression: The kind experienced on a regular basis by the daughter on Family Guy.

Giga-aggression: Also from Family Guy, the reaction of feminists to Quagmire’s lechery.

Tera-aggression: The level of aggression that can lead to tera-ist attacks.

Peta-aggression: Aggressions perpetrated by radical animal-rights activists against fur-wearing old ladies, but never leather-clad bikers.

Exa-aggression: This, tripled, is the reaction by some feminists and fundamentalists to pοrn.

Zetta-aggression: The reaction of the entire human race during the genocidal invasion of aliens from Zeta Reticuli during the late 21st Century AD.

Yotta-aggression: There is no recorded case of anyone being this aggressive; although sociologists predict that such behavior would lead to violent mood swings and extreme shifts in behavior, followed by the banning of tens of thousands of people from a blog, ending with obscurity and Chee-tos.

Resist Obama’s Fundamental Transformation…

Congress says that “veterans deemed too mentally incompetent to handle their own financial affairs [should] be prevented from buying a gun”. I say that anyone deemed “too mentally incompetent to handle their own financial affairs” should be prevented from serving in Congress.

Tomorrow

Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours to go
The day we’ve long awaited
What else to do
Tell Barack “Screw you!”
And he will be deflated

Just get me to the ballot
Put me in the booth
Hurry hurry hurry
It’s the moment of truth
Can’t cope with the hopeless
Debt upon our youth
Oh no, oh no, oh no…

(x2)

Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours to go
They all will be berated
MSM cries
And Obama’s lies
No, he was not misstated

Just get me to that station
Look at my ID
Hurry hurry hurry
I want to remain free
You can tell Joe Biden
This is a BFD
Oh no, oh no, oh no…

(x2)

Finger on the Scale

(H/T for Video: Jammie Wearing Fools)

That is very sloppy programming, where no answer within the alloted time defaults to the first choice (which, in this case, happens to be “Barack Obama”). A lack of response should either be ignored by the pollster (and most polling companies won’t tell us how many people refuse to answer) or counted as “no answer”.

Of course, some people will suspect that this is deliberate poll-rigging (although one shouldn’t rush to attribute to malice anything which can be adequately explained by stupidity). Even if that is the case, then it’s still sloppy programming because, if you’re rigging the poll to take silence as a vote for Obama, you don’t have the program say so out loud and thus provide evidence of your chicanery.

“Recalling the governor will create a circumstance where nobody ever makes a hard decision again … A recall would spread instability and uncertainty among your people and across the country.” –Bill Clinton back in 2003, when the governor in question was a Democrat (Gray Davis, CA).

Here’s a smug and smarmy picture I was just exposed to on the intertubes, by another smug and smarmy person who was applauding it.

If someone wants to put their own opinions on their own vehicles, more power to ’em; it’s a great way for me to spot the idiots in the crowd and give them wide berth while I’m commuting home. But this jerk is borrowing his father’s truck (and, who knows; living in his father’s basement, eating his father’s food, etc.?) and can’t resist sticking a contradictory sign in the window while doing so? If he feels that strongly about the issue, let him get a job and his own car. Like I have, when I’m commuting and giving wide berth to ungrateful self-satisfied idiots like him.

Another One Bites the Dust

28 December 2011

Ben Nelson (D-NE) was going to retire in a year whether he wanted to or not. His decision not to run for reelection merely means that he’s bowing to the inevitable.

In order to recapture the Senate in 2012, the GOP needs a net gain of four seats; and the numbers look much better now than they did in 2010. Out of the thirty-three incumbent Senators up for reelection next year, only ten are Republicans. The Democrats have more than twice as many seats to defend, and it’s going to be tough… Something of which the rats are no doubt aware, given the way they’re starting to abandon ship in droves.

  • Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI), retiring.
  • Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), retiring.
  • Senator Kent Conrad (D-NC), retiring.
  • Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI), retiring.
  • Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), retiring.
  • Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE), retiring.
  • Senator Jim Webb (D-VA), retiring.
