Upholding Their Oath

Thanks to a tip from LC Subotai Bahadur. Short story: The (p)Resident of Honduras, Manual Zelaya, decided that it wasn’t really fair that His Own Magnificent Self should be limited by his country’s Constitutional term limits, so he ordered a referendum held to extend his reign.

Fundraising Update

Individual thanks will be sent, but for now I just want to issue a general thank you to all of y’all for your kind support, generosity and well-wishes. I never enjoy putting posts like that up, and in these trying times I enjoy it even less, if such a thing is even possible. Nevertheless, you

Ask The Emperor

Oy vey, it seems like there really are people out there yearning to be on the receiving end of His Imperialness’ “Benevolence”.
