There were a lot of reasons to do so: https://washington.org/dc-information/washington-dc-history Another very large reason was they were terrified of the still...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    Who are those who call themselves Republicans 'serving' in D.C. these days, who never say nay to rumptubtup, though in private they say they think he's dreadful? Why, they are Republicans even more disgusting and depraved, cowardly and corrupt, than...

    Why attributing for entertainment, political, medical and other catastrophes to outside forces -- time travel, aliens, vampires, superheroes, etc. -- can be harmful (as we see from the consequences right now, pop culture / media have played a big role...

    I made an error and was feeling I had. Checked with an academic anthropologist and an archeologist about what I posted in response to Moz. The stones weren't about spinning. They were weights for the looms, for weaving. Proving that...

    @Moz -- [ "Men writing about what women did ... etc. are relying almost entirely on what other 'western' white men have written Without meaning to be rude, you seem to be implying that when women write about what historical...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Men writing about what women did and how things worked via nubility, contraception, pregnancy, childbirth etc. are relying almost entirely on what other 'western' white men have written, since 'western' white men got the opportunity to actually control all this...

    @ JBS 544: ["Today is Constitution Day in the U.S."] In observance and honor of, the White House called a 'history' conference. They are calling it the "Patriot Commission." https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/09/17/trump-launches-patriotic-education-commission-calls-1619-project-ideological-poison/#5704278c155a It's goal is to eradicate any teaching of American...

    @ Heteromeles #153 I must not be writing clearly, because I was, in my mind at least, including the FBI, etc. When I said "only after WWII," I was referring in my own mind there, to the CIA, which is...

    They are not waiting until an election -- a meaningless election for Them and their orange shoggoth. The blood is starting to flow and has been flowing. You are going to see a lot of it in one place, not...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    That war you all are concerned about. That war is ongoing and has been even before shoggoth's conquest of D.C. It has been waged by various means, with more rather than less success since the days of Reagan. ON US....
