About Me

18th Century American scientist, inventor, publisher, political theorist, civic activist, musician, satirist, and diplomat. First Postmaster General. The First American. Creator of the Glass Armonica. The only President of the United States who was never President of the United States. I resolve to speak ill of no man whatever, not even in a matter of truth; but rather by some means excuse the faults I hear charged upon others, and upon proper occasions speak all the good I know of everybody.

Someone told me about a jolly club called the Texas Gay Rodeo Association

Sounds like a lively bunch of happy fellows.

I discovered a wonderful thing called Google Images and looked up Bolivarian Militia

They have snappy uniforms and some obsolete yet still potent military rifles. Fusil Automatique Léger or FAL if I am not mistaken; designed in the early 1950s.

The late former President liked Kalashnikovs.

Which were designed with female soldiers in mind, with the dearth of men in the Soviet Union after World War II. They look most fearsome. I wonder who these ladies are planning to gun down. Whoever they are ordered to, I suppose. Independent thought is not required in an ordinary infantry.

Of course an old Mauser always gets the job done.

Real militia members use flintlocks. In the rain.

Didn't the 13th Amendment make it illegal for white people to have minorities?

Blasted antecedent rules!

Greetings from the 18th Century! I am a historian who stumbled via Google on a mangled version

of something that my favorite American founding father wrote on a thread here on Democratic Underground. Mr. Franklin himself must have rolled over in his grave at the twisting of his words, so I am acting as his proxy, awakened suddenly in the 21st Century where technology has advanced greatly but people have changed very little.

Mr. Franklin himself indulged in shameless plagiarism, frequently quoted people without attribution, and made subtle changes to peoples' writings and utterances for the purpose of creating satire.

I was drawn in by the ongoing discussions related to freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and transparency in government.

This seems to be a good source of thoughtful reading material.
