That whole brevity thing for the tl;dr generation

This is more along the lines of a programming note.

Often, very often in fact, I come across things on the interwebs that fill me with equal measures of both  childish delight and existential dread, but they lack enough heft to make them worthy of  eight hundred words, — give or take seven hundred or so. But because I care deeply about each and everyone of you with every fiber of my being , and because I don’t want you wandering the world not fully informed, I have taken on additional duties here at The Raw.

And by ‘here at The Raw,” I mean that I can also be found on the Raw Story tumblr found  >>>>here <<<<.

It will be more old-style short-form blogging like we used to do in the olden days when we used to cobble together pixels with twigs, dirt and then paste them to screen with dinosaur spit. We are doing this because  Dylan Byers said Andrew Sullivan is killing blogs just like Ezra Klein killed Twitter and Dylan writes for Politico which is the absolute worst ever and why nobody likes him.

Regardless, I’ll be calling attention to posts from elsewhere by people whom I both love and loathe — because I am fair that way. Almost like a goddam fucking saint, which I have heard people mutter behind by back from time to time.

There is also a comments section there (behave yourselves), but there will be no bassets. For that you need to follow the Twitter thingamajig. And we’ll be sprucing up the look of it in the near future; maybe a nice rug that will really tie the room together.

So there you have it: one more thing cluttering up the Internet making your life that much more complete.

You’re welcome.

American men are a simple people. They like their beer cold, their women hot, and their television shows stupid. America, for the most part, provides two out of three of those in abundance. But it’s hard out there for a man these days, particularly if he is saddled with the curse of whiteness which is cause for employers to replace him with a woman who will work for 23% less,  or possibly a brown person…

Stung by criticism for his exceedingly brief encounter with empathy for the families who lost kids in the Santa Barbara Second Amendment Slaughterfest, Joe the Unlicensed Plumber has both bunkered and doubled down with his assertion that you can have his guns when you pry them from his clammy toilet-plunging…


Santa Barbara shooting was a anti-MRA gun grabbing false flag because, of course, why not?

This is the dawning of the Age of Santa Barbara Trutherism so we best get up to speed before all of the tinfoil sells out. As we all know, nothing in America happens by chance. Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassination, 9/11, Aurora, Sandy Hook, the Boston marathon bombing, the Steelers…

I was fortunate enough to have been born and to have spent my life living in a part of America where the climate is conducive to outdoor living year-round. The San Diego of my youth was the fabled “sleepy Navy town” of yore; scrub-filled canyons and mesas extending to the…

Like word salad through a woodchipper, here is something Sarah Palin really actually wrote

Normally I don’t like to write about Sarah Palin in back to back posts but, like Operation American Spring that went from farce to absurdity to hilarity , sometimes you have to go where the derp takes you. I have said repeatedly that it is fairly apparent that everything that…

When we last saw Sarah Palin,  — Half-Term Governor of The Northern Territories, Mother of GED Students, Destroyer of Words — she was fresh off of a featured speaker gig at the NRA’s annual Blood Frenzy Circle Jerk. Depending upon your point of view, her speech went over boffo or…

When he wasn’t joshing around about starting a nuclear war with Russia , Ronald Reagan — former President and Peggy Noonan’s favorite foot fetish model — liked to joke that: “The most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” I’m sure…
