ReaganBook, described by its founder as “the Facebook for patriots” is the latest in a long line of poorly done conservative social networks. A day after launching, the site was overrun with trolls and taken down by admins.

I have found the craigslist ad to beat all craigslist ads - the invitation to spend the oncoming apocalypse in a hole in a ground in Vermont. A man in Boston needs a fertile woman to share this opportunity with him.

https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/m4w/4716807484.html

I thought I'd copy-paste the text, just incase the stampede of women wishing to take him up on this offer means that he takes his ad down soon.

Quote:
Ebola is about to break loose in America. It's already in Dallas and Atlanta. Boston will be its next stop I am sure and soon airplanes, taxis, and the T will not be safe. Don't wait for it to be too late. I have been prepping for about 10 years in the Vermont mountains and have a hidden sustainable bug out shelter well off the grid and completely self sufficient. I only fear that by going there now, alone, I will emerge in 10-15 years to find humanity has succumbed to this modern day plague and I will have no way to keep the species going.

I plan to wait no longer than 2 weeks to head out. I have enclosed some pictures of my shelter so you can see this is for real and it is not going to be completely rustic. If you already have children and wish to bring them then I think that is a good idea, and if not that is fine too. I request that you are fertile and able to bear at least three children with me should we find ourselves in a situation where a decade or more passes before it is safe to emerge. If you have small arms experience or hunting experience that is a big plus.

I have already transferred my life savings into gold and I recommend you do the same even if you choose not to respond or try to survive with me. It is almost certain that even if humanity doesn't crumble that at the very least our monetary system and possibly our government will.

This could be the best decision you ever make in your life. Choose adventure and take control of your destiny instead of waiting and hoping that the government will fix this for you. I await your message.

That Craigslist ad made my day. It's been removed, but I saved the image locations before it was, and somehow those are still available. So here's a look at the bunker and the armored van that goes with it:

I know, it's irresistible, isn't it? Form an orderly line, ladies. It's not every day you hear about an offer like this.

I love both cats AND dogs.

But when I read this, I couldn't help but think about how fitting it is for a Stalinist to prefer "faithful" and "hard working" dogs (i.e. obedient little proles) vs. independent anarchist-like cats. (Based on exaggerated caricatures of their species, but still.)

Then today when I saw this on Reddit I remember what our Stalinist friend Žižek wrote and couldn't help myself:

Cats are anarchists and fascists simultaneously.

Quote:
Imperialist-backed “democracy” activists seeking to end Chinese Communist Party (CCP) control over the capitalist enclave of Hong Kong continue to block streets in parts of the city, as they have since late September. Using the demand for universal suffrage as a wedge, the protesters, known as the Umbrella Movement, are attempting to open the way for Hong Kong’s capitalist parties to exercise direct political power. It is in the interest of working people around the world to oppose these protests. Political power in the hands of the bourgeoisie in Hong Kong would be a spearhead for smashing the Chinese bureaucratically deformed workers state and opening the mainland to untrammeled capitalist exploitation.

This was from a few years ago. Somebody mentioned it in the pub yesterday. I managed to find a short report about it in English:

Quote:
ANKARA (02-10) – A 52-year-old Turkish man was shot in the leg by his own son over his intentions to have a penis transplant from a donkey.
On two previous occasions Mehmet Esirgen, 52, purchased two donkeys, amputated their sexual organs and appealed in vain to medical doctors to perform a penis transplant in order to cure his sexual impotence.
His family, opposed to Esirgens intentions, became hysterical when he purchased a third donkey on his way home from Ankara and one of his sons shot him in the leg.
For a long time now I have had sexual problems and I have spent all my pension funds to overcome them, said Esirgen. He plans to buy a fourth donkey as soon as he recovers from his leg wound.

I think you have to live or have lived here to appreciate the exact degree of surrealness in the phrase "pro-PKK protest at York Minster".

Was wondering too. I lived in York for 4 years and don't find this surreal. Am I missing something?

Alan Woods & Co. have made an amazing discovery:

Quote:
We have discussed the new situation and how best to utilize our energies in the next period in order to further the cause of socialism. We believe the Labour Party has been largely discredited in the eyes of most youth and workers. As Marxists, we are not going to stand on the sidelines in the present political realignment in Scotland.

but in England, Labour isn't yet discredited wink

Hmmm, I knew there was something familiar about the taste of a good Starbucks.
