Other people's dreams are still boring

I dreamt that i was the mayor of a small town in the post apocalyptic south of france. It was all going pretty well right up to the point that i had to explain to the former white collar workers that yes, they were required to do farm labor too. Even in my dreams the creative class is a bunch of lazy, whiny blowhards.

Everything old is new again

So i'm watching this thing onwitch hunting in the 16th century. Here's how you spot a witch: if she's slutty, and/or if she's poor she's obviously made a pact with the devil and is responsible for terrible ecological disasters.
sounds like the platform of both political parties to me.

Mother's day

you all might know my feelings on the treacly shit holiday known as mother's day. But i'm nothing if not redundant. Mother's day is where we hand out flowers and hallmark cards so we can prentend like we actually give a shit about the women who literally are the only reason the human race exists. Throughout the world, women in general and mothers in particular do 90% of the work yet own only 10% of the wealth. Domestically, mothers face a much wider wage gap than any others group and only 30% of single mothers receive child support.
So thanks for the brunch, but i'd rather be treated like full human being than a sacred cow worshipped one day a year and milked for the other 364
