Beto in Madison - Acid Test

So Psychedelic Warlord claims he never took acid.

I believe Robert Francis O'Rourke.

Maybe.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

May we live in peace without weeping.

May our joy outline the lives we touch without ceasing.

And may our love fill the world, angel wings tenderly beating.

Psychedelic Warlord - Beto O'Rourke: 'The Song of the Cow'

Beto O'Rourke's writings are embarrassingly weird.

From the Daily Caller:

Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry.

Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.”

I need a butt-shine,
Right now
You are holy,
Oh, sacred Cow
I thirst for you,
Provide Milk.

Buff my balls,
Love the Cow,
Good fortune for those that do.
Love me, breathe my feet,
The Cow has risen.

Wax my ass,
Scrub my balls.
The Cow has risen,
Provide Milk.

This sounds like lyrics from a Rick and Morty song.

Here's the rest of the poem, "The Song of the Cow."

Oh, Milky Wonder, sing for us once more,
Live your life, everlusting joy.
Thrust your hooves up my analytic passage,
Enjoy my fruits

Provider of Cheese and other wonderful dairy products,
We will cleanse your inner intestines.
We will bathe in your Pungent Odor,
Gather cotton.

Count my eyes,
Smell my skin,
Love the Scarecrow and the Milkman.
I live only for eternity,
Thirst for the undrinkable.
Hold the heat,
Praise the dough boy at the pizza shop.
Love the Oxen dung!
Beto must come to Wisconsin and do a reading of "The Song of the Cow."

"Provider of Cheese and other wonderful dairy products."

The State Fair coliseum would be the perfect place for him to wax eloquent about the beloved cow.

More on Beto's writings, from the Washington Examiner:

"The Song of the Cow" isn't the only odd piece of written work recently excavated from the former Texas congressman's past. As part of a Reuters investigation published Friday, it was discovered that O'Rourke — who was a member of the hacking group "Cult of the Dead Cow" — wrote a short story about deliberately running over a group of children in his car.

“As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head," O'Rourke wrote.
The poem was funny, but there's nothing funny about running over children. That's really creepy, though it's fiction, right?

Psychedelic Warlord is a good pseudonym for Beto, almost as good as Anthony Weiner's Carlos Danger.

Almost.

Beto, Climate Change, and D-Day

Beto O'Rourke compares Leftist climate change proposals to "those who were on the beaches in Normandy."

Does this guy know what happened on the beaches in Normandy?

Christchurch, New Zealand Shootings





At least 49 people were killed in a calculated terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Some of this horror was live-streamed.

From USA Today:

A gunman who opened fire inside a New Zealand mosque on Friday appeared to live-stream his attack in a 17-minute video that looked to be recorded on a helmet camera.

The Facebook video began with the man driving up to Masjid Al Noor mosque in the city of Christchurch. After parking his car, the man armed himself with at least one weapon and walked into the mosque, immediately shooting a person in the doorway.

In a 73-page manifesto posted to various sites including Twitter and Scribd that appeared to belong to the gunman, he identified himself as a 28-year-old white man born in Australia and listed white nationalist heroes.

In Sydney, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Friday that an Australian citizen had been arrested in the mosque shootings.
Clearly, the shooter sought to make a name for himself. He murdered innocent people to get attention for himself. Absolutely horrific.

The shooter is evil.



Ides of March

Beware the ides of March.

From History:

“Beware the ides of March” was famously scribbled by William Shakespeare in his play “Julius Caesar” as the ominous warning given by a soothsayer to the soon-to-be ex-Roman emperor as he made his way to the Capitol that fateful day in 44 BC. And although good old Bill probably thought it was far from a throwaway line, even the great poet and playwright could not have imagined the life it’s taken on the 500 years since.

Not only did Shakespeare’s words stick, they branded the phrase with a dark and gloomy connotation that will forever make people uncomfortable. It’s probable that many people who use the phrase today don’t know it’s true origin. In fact, just about every pop culture reference to the Ides—save for those appearing in actual history-based books, movies or television specials—makes it seem like the day itself is cursed.

But the Ides of March actually has a non-threatening origin story. Kalends, Nones and Ides were ancient markers used to reference dates in relation to lunar phases. Ides simply referred to the first full moon of a given month, which usually fell between the 13th and 15th. In fact, the Ides of March once signified the new year, which meant celebrations and rejoicing.
So, don't beware? Instead, celebrate and rejoice?
...Did the death of Caesar curse the day, or was it just Shakespeare’s mastery of language that forever darkened an otherwise normal box on the calendar? If you look through history, you can certainly find enough horrible things that happened on March 15, but is it a case of life imitating art? Or art imitating life?

Perhaps it was Julius Caesar himself (and not the famous dramatist) who caused all the drama. After all, he’s the one who uprooted Rome’s New Year celebration from their traditional March 15 date to January…just two years before he was betrayed and butchered by members of the Roman senate.
Bad and good things can and do happen every day.

Relax.

Angelo Carusone - Media Matters

If Angelo Carusone didn't know it already, he knows it now.

Karma is a bitch.






Elizabeth Warren and Operation Varsity Blues



I have "zero" sympathy for Elizabeth Warren. She lied about her race to advance her career. She didn't just tell stories about her alleged Native American heritage to friends and acquaintances. She called herself "American Indian" on her State Bar of Texas registration card.






Elizabeth Warren cheated and lied just as those involved in the college admissions scandal did.



Pi Day



From USA Today:
March 14 is Pi Day, an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi), which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. The trillion-digit ratio is rounded to 3.14.

Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day and last year noted astrophysicist Stephen Hawking died on the made-up holiday.

Pi Day, not to be confused with Pie Day held in January, is a day with deals on pizza, pastry and pot pies.

Aside from calculating your savings, it's a day to have fun with math too, said Syracuse University mathematics professor Graham Leuschke. He said you can search for your birthday in the digits of π and can create a "pi-ku" similar to a haiku poem.
