I tend to take the stance that Libertarianism is like Leninism: a fascinating, internally consistent political theory with some good underlying points that, regrettably, makes prescriptions about how to run human society that can only work if we replace real messy human beings with frictionless spherical humanoids of uniform density (because it relies on simplifying assumptions about human behaviour which are unfortunately wrong).

Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire

Charlie Stross wrote an insightful post about BtC and Libertarianism, and closes with the above paragraph, which sums up why I looked at Libertarianism when I was younger, realized it was absolutely not for me, and embraced my OMG SOCIALIST ideals.

Getting psyched for Bludgeon Ann Coulter Day.

Part of me feels like if someone just held her tight, like Robin Williams held Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, and refused to let go – just shushed into her ear, repeating “It’s ok Ann Coulter, even you have worth, we’re all stuck together on this crazy rock trying to make sense of things and we’re all going to die. shhh. all we have is each other in this moment and it’s ok. we love you. it’s ok. shhhh. it’s ok” – she would come blinking into the light like a newborn babe, break down and cry, beg forgiveness and become a decent human being.
Hahaha! just kidding. let’s burn the witch. 



Ann Coulter is & always has been an evil douche. And an early supporter of Mitt Romney.

Is it any surprise her then THREE-year-old grandson used the word “faggot” on her daughter’s reality show? Hey, Sarah, why don’t you worry about the sex your TEEN daughters are having, then WORK YOUR WAY UP to the sex lives of your gay neighbors? Thumbs up! What a shrew. Anything for a headline.

No one should expect any different. She’s an empty, bitter husk of a woman, stuck in a marriage to a man that resents her and a bunch of horrible children that will grow up to be just like them. She’s a loser with no job skills and once Fox News gets tired of her she’ll be unemployed for the rest of her life. If it wasn’t for the fact that she’s rich, I’d almost feel sorry for her.
