Settle Down, ALS Ice Bucket Haters (But Dubya Doing It Is Weird For Sure)
"All I’m asking everyone in Snarky Town, U.S.A. to do is take a break from your cynical analysis of "clicktivism" and look at the actual numbers generated for the cause by this cheap viral video gag. As of just a few days ago, the number had broken the $13 million mark. That’s a lot of goddamned money, no matter how gimmicky the method of eliciting donations. If you were to go to any charity or non-profit research group and ask them if they wanted you to cut them a check for about a dozen million dollars, I hardly doubt any of them would hold their nose while accepting it if you told them the funds came from a viral video sensation."

To the Cop Who Told Me Not to Resist: Go Fuck Yourself
“Look I don’t want to be “that guy,” but we do actually pay your goddamned salary. I know you probably have heard that time and again from, as you put it, “belligerent” people, but I don’t care. It’s the truth. I deal in truth. You may deal in anecdotal condescension. I don’t. So yes, suck it up, sir. You are an employee of the very same people you’re telling need to just “sit down, sit back and shut up.” If you don’t believe we pay your salaries and that we deserve your respect for that fact, let’s see what happens if we start voting for people who agree with us, and start burning your military toys budget to the ground. Let’s see what happens when people who agree with me get elected to office and clean-fucking-house, sir.”

Facebook to Extend Content Labeling Beyond Satire
"In a not-too-surprising move, the wunderkinds who run Facebook have decided to expand their efforts to ensure their users get only content that confirms their biases, doesn’t challenge them to think, and doesn’t require anything above their actual reading level to comprehend, and will start labeling more than just satirical articles."

Come Out of Hiding and Do the Right Thing — An Open Letter to Officer Darren Wilson

"This can all go away if you and the people in charge over there in Ferguson man-up. You deserve to be held accountable for what you did, Officer Wilson. The laws in this country that dictate how arrests are to be made and how police are to interact with the public they are charged to serve and protect are there for a reason. They exist precisely to stop the curtain from being raised on this kind of shit-show. Even if we believe the stories out of right-wing-nut-job-land about Brown coming after you — a story that has not been corroborated by any of the other witnesses to you killing Michael in broad daylight — how can you justify killing him, much less pumping at least six bullets into him?"

Justice Is Lost, Justice is Raped, Justice Is Gone"If Wilson didn’t even know Brown was a suspect in the robbery, then there is simply no logical way you can conclude that Brown’s life should be considered a justified expense of American Justice. Brown is instead the quintessential victim of police over-stepping and his murder is the very definition of cruel and unusual punishment."

What the Holy Fuck? Ferguson, Missouri Edition

Perhaps the cops in Ferguson should consider moving to a country with a state-run media. But I’d recommend brushing up on their Korean and learning how to say “Why yes, Kim-Jong Un, you really are the world’s best power forward and could totally take Lebron in a 1-on-1.”
