Americans, Culture Wars, Islamic fanaticism ← Previous post Next post → Comments Epador Jul 30 2018 at 12:08 am I thought it stood for totally uninformed retarded dipshits. cmblake6 Jul 30 2018 at 12:43 am Good option, yes. eon Jul 30 2018 at 7:26 am I find it amusing that such groups somehow manage to work “diversity” (supposedly inclusive) and “race” (defiantly exclusive) into their names and/or doctrinal statements simultaneously. They’re either very confused, or else Orwell was right and some animals really are more equal than others in their mental universe. clear ether eon John Jul 30 2018 at 3:32 pm I love Orwell, although I remain amazed and confused as to why he remained a Socialist while knowing just what that meant, even after he discovered his fellow Socialists were not motivated by love of the Poor but rather hatred of the Rich. I can only suppose that he was convinced to his dying day that human nature was some kind of social construct that could be changed. Fox2! Jul 30 2018 at 12:15 am Looks like our favorite Sabra has been in Texas too long. Deplorable B Woodman Jul 30 2018 at 12:22 am Sounds like the TURDs are TARDs. (I can never remember these new acronyms; TDS = Trump Derangement Syndrome TARD = ?Trump Acceptance Rejection Derangement? RETARD = ?) Deplorable B Woodman Jul 30 2018 at 12:26 am With that many robots bellying up to charging posts, either the DD Ranch has its own nuclear power station, or they have the means to pay off one hell of a monthly power bill. WayneM Jul 30 2018 at 12:32 am Solar power in Texas? MAJ Arkay Jul 30 2018 at 11:34 am We have year-round solar and wind options, Wayne. One can install a wind generator or solar panels (or both) for less than $20k which will run a typical rural concern and still sell back to the local electric cooperative. We’re saving our pennies to do just that AND get rainwater collection installed. PaulS Jul 31 2018 at 12:08 am You can collect rainwater?!?! Here in WA, the great northwet, the gubmint thinks that rain belongs to them and can’t be collected for later use. How that makes any sense at All eludes me, but hey; IFTGAIHTH! WayneM Jul 31 2018 at 8:02 am I figured as much, MAJ Arkay… I’ve developed an interest in Texas in recent years… although the recent surge of people ‘escaping’ from Calipornia to Texas doesn’t seem like a good development. As a Canadian who spent a lifetime pouring taxes into an increasingly large government, Trudeau was kinda the straw… Either things will get better or much, much worse. Knowing Texas still respects the appropriate role of government vs individual makes it very attractive as an option. GWB Jul 30 2018 at 7:54 am The Don could probably buy them one of those modular pebble bed reactors. That’d be real handy. But might be too tempting for little Javier………………. MasterDiver Jul 30 2018 at 8:14 am Go with a Thorium molten salt reactor. No risk of meltdown and only 10% of the waste of a Uranium design. Zar Belk! John Jul 30 2018 at 3:40 pm I’m just waiting for the Skunk Works to deliver on their compact fusion reactor. They’ve already taken out patents on it and promised to have a prototype up and running by next year with a production model ready in another five. The fusion reactor promises many wondrous things by way of power too cheap to meter, including the destruction of nuclear waste by proton bombardment. interventor Jul 30 2018 at 10:35 pm Thanks for the update. TomZ Jul 30 2018 at 11:38 pm That would put Yucca Mountain out of business before it would even get really working. Doggo Jul 31 2018 at 9:13 am They’re working on a “Mr Fusion”? Are they going to install it in a DeLorean too? Deplorable B Woodman Jul 30 2018 at 12:29 am At least Naomi hasn’t started using, “bless your heart” (in that tone that means, you’re an utter idiot, and you’ve stepped in it deep)——yet. cmblake6 Jul 30 2018 at 12:44 am Traditional Southern deprecation. She needs to, and soon. interventor Jul 30 2018 at 10:36 pm It can mean many things depending upon the tone. Too Tall Jul 30 2018 at 12:53 am The literal translation of “Bless your heart,” (or “bless your soul) to Yankee english is a big “F___ You!” PaulS Jul 31 2018 at 12:12 am I had thought that was the translation of “Isn’t that nice.” 😉 JJ cooper Jul 30 2018 at 8:36 pm First thing I learned when I moved South was “Bless Your Heart”. I was told you could say any vicious thing you liked as long as you finished with “Bless Your heart”. Deplorable B Woodman Jul 30 2018 at 12:31 am What’s in a name? “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” These TURDs ain’t no roses. cmblake6 Jul 30 2018 at 12:45 am And T.U.R.D. is so appropriate… James Gemind Jul 30 2018 at 1:08 am Please, Someone just tell that’s a real organization name. Please? With sugar and a cherry on top? 🙂 eon Jul 30 2018 at 7:21 am Way back in the prehistory of Microsoft, Bill Gates put together a “tiger team” to work out the priority rankings of items in the Windows OS. Being the inveterate inventor of catchy titles that he was he labeled it “System Hierarchies for Information Technologies”. Yes. it was known forever after as “the SHIT Team”. clear ether eon Lifeofthe Mind Jul 30 2018 at 2:14 am Can we get a T.A.R.D.I.S. in here? (Time And Relative Dimension In Space) Bill G Jul 30 2018 at 5:56 am At this, ah, time, the Doctor is out. Bill G Jul 30 2018 at 6:00 am I cannot believe that so many vehicles display ‘TRD Toyota Racing Division’. For this sort of smoldering boulder it would seem like something they would consider “edgy”; calling themselves turds to shock the un-woke. Doggo Jul 30 2018 at 9:05 am Yeah, one day those folks at Toyota will learn English…bless their hearts Bill Jul 30 2018 at 9:19 am A TURD by any other name smells just as sweet. JTC Jul 30 2018 at 10:34 am Time’s Up Radical Deviants! So sayeth the Man, DJT. And me. Steven Speairs Jul 30 2018 at 2:21 pm Chris, you are following some GIANT FOOTSTEPS with T.U.R.D.s, as I am old enough to remember the great Al Capp and his S.W.I.N.E. (Students Wildly Indignant about Nearly Everything) circa the 1960-70s. He was despised by the LEFT when he turned conservative and started mocking the antics of the anti-war and SDS. Deplorable B Woodman Jul 30 2018 at 9:05 pm I remember Al Capp’s telling of the Lower Slobbovian peasants that adopted the cute little wolf cub, and what happened when it grew up. Further correct details elude me at this time. (This was how many decades ago? I think I was still a teen then). John D. Egbert Jul 31 2018 at 8:28 am And don’t forget the equally relevant S.P.O.N.G.E. (Society for the Prevention of [NN-word-s] Getting Everything. IIRC both organizations were “investigated” by the inimitable Fearless Fosdick. Drew458 Jul 31 2018 at 2:32 pm My favorite #1 bad acronym is for Women Helping Others Relax And Enjoy Seattle. #2 winner is a terrorist group in the Philippines, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. For reals; they named themselves MILFs. cfm56dash7 Aug 02 2018 at 1:38 am Here in Seattle, they have a trolley-car system that: 1. Costs too much, goes practically nowhere, and is over budget 2. Has already killed a pedestrian 3. Has an overall traveling speed that is slower than walking 4. Recently spent $52M on new trolley cars that… wait for it… don’t fit on the tracks 5. Best of all, it’s known as the South Lake Union Trolley, because, you know, everyone likes to ride the SLUT. (Not kidding, this is the official name.)
