This is a quick 'n' dirty placeholder for a personal homepage, which syndicates the most recent posts from my Google+ feed Posterous blog and shared articles from Google Reader. Real homepage coming when I get around to it.

Next time a job interviewer asks what your greatest weakness is, just look them straight in the eye and say, "Kryptonite."

How do we fight Nazis? Apparently not by punching them, unfortunately.#stopfascism #charlottesville #impeachtrump

Original Post from Kevin C. (KevinC):

From the linked SPLC article:
"Denying an alt-right speaker of such a spectacle is the worst insult they can endure.

While there’s nothing wrong with peaceful student protests against a hateful ideology, it’s best to draw attention to hope instead. Hold an alternative event – away from the alt-right event"

Original Post from Kevin C. (KevinC):

Here's an article with the mainstream "balanced", give both "sides" equal time approach, and even then it seems like the alt-right/UniteTheRight groups came in rumbling for a fight. The anarchists, anti-fa and more peaceful leftists seem to be primarily blocking their way, and occasionally throwing things. One other thing that stood out is that there were far more cameras than violence from either side. Much of the violence appeared to be a couple people fighting surrounded by a hoard of cameras.
The police seemed outnumbered, but competent and much more effective than the shield swinging protesters from either side.

Original Post from John Hardy Turnbull delenda est:

Eye witness accounts of the counter protests at Charlottesville.

Now that foul-mouthed Trump has used it, the term "Alt-Left" will be retired by lazy liberal pundits going forward. The noise you are hearing now is the sound of old tweets being deleted en masse.

As Kevin C. said when sharing this post originally:"Wait, what? This isn't satire? Trump actually established a propaganda network and called it 'Real News'?We need to make sure this fails horribly. Not just a little, fails so bad no future American President of any party will want to try it again in the future. Don't give it views, read third party summaries instead. Don't give it likes. Don't give it shares. Does it have any advertisers to contact?"

We need to make sure this fails horribly. Not just a little, fails so bad no future American President of any party will want to try it again in the future. Don't give it views, read third party summaries instead. Don't give it likes. Don't give it shares. Does it have any advertisers to contact?
