Confessions of a Neo-Luddite

Well, it had to happen, and if it weren’t because we’re the Ruler of All of the Universe (and Outlying Counties) and, as such, can do whatever we please, we’d be hanging our head in shame.

You know how we feel about Twitter (operative word “Twit”), and that hasn’t changed. However, we could not deny that is a nifty place to keep up with the hilarity going on there (mainly conservatives making shameless fun of liberal fascists, which is what life is all about anyway) and so, eventually, just recently, we succumbed to the lure, the siren song, the fiendish temptation to make an account there. Just so we could keep up with the snark even better.

And also so we could read every word to ever leave Adam Baldwin’s keyboard, but that’s our guilty pleasure.

Our love for him now ain’t hard to explain
The Hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne

We’re digressing, aren’t we? Oh yes we are. And quite dreadfully so. Don’t deny it.

So yes, we do now have an account there. We are most definitely NOT going to pathetically beg you to follow us because, well, there’s not much to follow as His Imperial Long-Windedness’ particular style doesn’t fit all that well there. 140 characters? We beg your pardon. That’s what we call a headline! Also, because Rotties don’t “follow”, they lead.

Still, we’re there.

    Seeing as I have lived near, in and around Canton while a youth, Alec Baldwin is no hero there.

    William McKinley, on the other hand…

    Good on ya. I hear that Twitter is the one field of battle where we patriots can exchange blow for blow with the Quislings.

    I wanted to post the following. I just saw Mild-Mannered Sen. Mitch McConnell on Cspan tonight, and boy, he really tore Obama and Company a new one. Please, please pass this on to all and sundry: he brought up lawbreaking, tyrannical OUTRAGES that even I didn’t know about.

    Here’s an excerpt:

    “This is a dangerous, radical administration,” said McConnell.

    “I’m going to lay out a long litany of abuses pursued by the Obama Administration and its allies against its political opponents,” McConnell said. “It’s reminiscent of the Nixon administration. It’s much more pervasive than Clinton. They have their enemies list.”

    McConnell is incensed over the Obama Administration’s use of government and nongovernmental resources to target its political enemies.

    They’ve used the IRS, the FEC, the FCC, the SEC, their allies in the Obama campaign to go after people who disagree with them. The Obama campaign has rifled through the divorce records of a major donor to an opposing super PAC. The government itself is intimidating donors. Appointees at the IRS and other agencies are pursuing similar efforts to ferret out who is contributing to outside groups critical of the Administration so that they can scare them off the playing field and shut them up.”


    More here, with the video of the speech itself. Worth every minute: you will be shocked. Please pass it on.

    So. What’s your Twitter handle, Misha? It seems to be missing from the Imperial FAQ.

    physics geek, i found him. @emperormisha

    The thing I like about twitter is that there’s always fresh liberal meat to chew on.

    Funny. Misha and Emperor alone returned too many results. Never occurred to me to enter them both.

    Yeah, I know: blunt force head trauma.

    Um, that’s Adam Baldwin. Jayne in Firefly. Great actor, funny as hell, outspoken conservative, no relation to Alec.

    Favorite Jayne line:

    “Well don’t SAY it!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    “Jayne, it only works on the girl.”
