But it is not so much the absurdity as the evil of hereditary succession which concerns mankind. 

Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions. -Thomas Paine

We have a different kind of aristocracy today but Paines’ Common Sense still holds true.

There is a now a trailer for the Monster High moive so reviled by the Eldest Dark Spawn.

It’s been a while I admit it, but Luck, the first of John Lassetter’s new projects for Skydance may just remind you.

The part that made me laugh the hardest was the cast list. Among the names was John Ratzenberger. It was as if Lassetter made one last Grinch-like, look around Pixar to make certain there was nothing he had missed while looting his old company and snatched up the last crumb before heading out the door

Post cards from a fallen country that was at one time very proud of it’s history and heritage.

Since we’re giving Amazon’s LOTR the BS a working over today, I decided to let Nerdrotic give it a few passing slaps.

There has just been a shooting at the Fourth of July parade today in Highland Park, Illinois. I’m betting that for once it’s not gang-related. If you go somewhere with a crowd today, be prepared to protect your family.
