From DC's anarchist cartoonist Mike Flugennock - "DAnon Shaman" http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=3121 Well, it's about freakin' time. I was starting to wonder when the Democrats and their flunkies in the media were going to get off the dime and start screeching that ZOMG FOREIGN INFLUENCE (a.k.a. Russia, China, Iran) was responsible for the Great Capitol Hill Chud Riot a couple of weeks ago — and I was somehow reminded of this fake shaman who turned out with the QAnon crowd at t...

Inauguration Special ‘Celebrating America’ Will Be Hosted by America’s Dad, Tom Hanks

It’s been a very long four years, but Donald Trump’s days as President of the United States are almost over – and thank heavens for that.

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything.) Kingdom , one of Netflix’s original South Korean dramas, couldn’t be streaming at a more apt time.  The drama is, on the surface, a zombie show. It’s intriguing in how it puts the classic zombie trope into a historical drama format—the zombie outbreak has occurred during the Joseon Dynasty. But despite its classic zombie horror trappings and lush historical sets and costume...
