Guest Blogger: The Election

This article was submitted to us by The Gentleman Punk.

Hello out there, some of you might remember me, others surely won’t, but I was one of the first guest writers here back in 2012, and while my career has kept me away from blogging for some time, I figured now was as good a time as any to jump back in with my regained freedom, especially since there is so much controversy to delve in to.

With the paradoxically shocking and seemingly inevitable victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election, there is a lot of discussion on what it means? Have Americans embraced hate as some on the left say? Is he the leading edge in a new wave of anti-establishment fervor as some entrenched political figures ask? Did he buy his way to the white house? How will he preside?

I Just Want to Point Out That Les is Carrying This Blog

Yeah, Les. That guy who rarely has much to say, just makes pictures and stuff. He's carrying this blog lately.

I feel ashamed.

Although, he's been doing an incredible job. Who knew he had a voice? (he does voice work, so that is funny. Please laugh (Jeb! reference))

I've not been writing because I have been busy winning. Seriously, it's hard to write much when every other news article out right now is "winner winner, chicken dinner".

OMG, so much winning.

Hamilton 2: Election Boogaloo

Following a production of the play “Hamilton,” star Brandon Dixon called out Vice-President elect Mike Pence, who was in attendance, with this statement:
“We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights. We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us. All of us.”
I’m unclear as to who represents the alarmed and anxious “we” on behalf of whom he was ostensibly speaking. Perhaps the royal “we,” referring to the entire cast and crew, who are not amused? I hope they can find a nice safe space and afford the recently discounted Hillary coloring books. If I were a representative of a Broadway play that just came off the highest-grossing season in history, with $1.37 billion in ticket sales, and I wanted to raise awareness about my concerns for the potentially disenfranchised, I wouldn’t make a political statement about it on the dime of the production. Finance an ad campaign. Sell designer safety pins. Produce another play on the topic and charge just $10, so as to be more inclusive. Heck, just make it free admission, and call the play “Sanders.”

A Blunt Point

The infantilization of — and by — the left continues.

The consistent bulwarks of the constitutional guarantees of free stuff and to not be offended have appropriated a symbol first adopted by those in solidarity with migrants following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Apparently the wearing of safety pins has become the new “hands up, don’t shoot” clarion call among the compassionate enablers sympathizers of those who fear that their whines voices will not be heard, because a man has been elected president who has promised to throw all women, immigrants, people of color, and LGBTQIQA identifiers into non-EPA compliant furnaces.

Classic Lactose: SCIENCE! with Lactose the Intolerant

This post by Lactose the Intolerant was originally published on April 12th, 2013.

Well, don’t spread this around, but I happen to be a scientist/engineer in real life, which is probably why I try to avoid real life.  But it’s science fair time of the year again, so it’s time to help the kiddies design some meaningful projects.  Then I thought to myself, I might as well try to get some of my ill gotten gains back from the feds in the form of research grant money.  These are the research projects I’m going to submit, but there is a trick if you want federal grant money these days.  See if you can figure it out.

Just Like Heroin Addicts

 "Believe me, I'm not licked yet, folks. We can still fix this.
This is just a little bump in the road.
Huma, you get a hold of George, Rupert and Valerie.
Maybe Jebby can give us a hand, too.
Let's get this taken care of, whatever it costs.
So, you better also call your cousins in Saudi Arabia."

Dewey Defeats Truman

I have to admit to MAJOR schadenfreude all day today. I spent most of the day out here on the Left Coast drinking champagne made from the fermented tears of distraught liberals.

Actually,in keeping with my (now) eleven years of sobriety, I drank sparkling grape juice made from the fermented tears of distraught liberals. 

But it was just as sweet.

A Scripture

Tonight, my family and I are just sitting down to Family Home Evening. Each week, on Monday night, we gather as a family and have songs, prayers and a lesson together. Oh, and obviously, cookies. We take turns with the different responsibilities, and tonight was mine to choose our scripture to "ponderize". We decide upon a scripture each week to print and put in our bathroom. We read it over and over and try to become familiar with it and even memorize it.  Since I get the chance to choose the ponderize scripture fairly often, when I do my daily reading, I keep a record of scriptures that strike a chord with me so that I can quickly choose a really good one.

This was the one I chose for tonight:

Love how she highlighted Ether 2:12 - great idea!:

Let us serve God so that we may deserve that God Bless America. 

A Republic...If You Can Keep It

There is a stirring in the air. The stirrings of Revolution. Of the People, an entity called out in our most venerated Constitution, seeking to retake what is rightfully theirs: the Republic.

You've probably seen several sides to this equation. On the one hand, there are the diehard Clinton supporters. Democrat until their last breath. Incapable of forming a cogent thought on their own or questioning anything that has been presented to them their entire lives.

On the other hand is the mix of Never Trump and reluctant Trump voters. A strange dichotomy of people who at once consider the media to be biased and untrustworthy, yet base their entire opinions of Trump on what the media has told them for months.

And the remaining? The majority? The People.

They stand in the middle, within the breach. Willing to stay the forward movement of both the left and the establishment class. They desire a Republic. They want that power to be their own, as it was intended to be. They no longer trust anyone of the political bent nor the media which has served as their propaganda arm for decades.

We stand at a crossroads right now; one which I am no longer sure a wrong choice could be recovered from.

And yet we still have those on "our side" who just cannot see it. Still cannot get over their conflicted perceptions based on media lies while at the same saying they don't trust the media.

It is one or the other. It cannot be both. Either you believe the media lies, or you believe the candidate, his record, and the many anecdotal reports about him by people who have worked for and with him.

It is one or the other.

Either way, there is a Movement afoot. A Revolution of sorts. Millions of Americans from varying backgrounds who are sick and tired of corruption. They are to whom the future belongs. Not those who waffle on the sidelines. Not those who outright support the evil corruption that grips this nation as it has done for decades.

It is us; we Deplorables, who own the future.

Let us Make America Great Again with Donald John Trump as our standard-bearer.

Hate the Candidates? Vote for the Constitution

It's no secret how I feel about the names I will see when I enter the voting booth tomorrow. 
But right now, today, I am benefitting from the freedoms and rights that as an American, I am afforded. Because of these advantages, I have the privilege and responsibility to vote.
So what can I do?
I will vote for the Constitution.

A Witch Hunt for Silver Linings

At this point (Sunday, November 06, 2016), just a few minutes after FBI Director James B Comey has announced that he’s standing by his original decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, despite various revelations of additional crimes she’s committed found on Anythony Weiner’s device, I’m forced to make the following assumption, and then search for a possible silver lining (because I’m such a freakin’ sunny optimist all the time).

Do Our Kids Ever Fake Us Out?

Even in today's "progressive" Kardashian culture with radical liberalism and the constant coddling of deviants, miscreants, mental defectives, crooks, criminals and cons (that's just in our political system alone) it's still the intent of most parents to not unleash their kids into society without a disciplined upbringing.

But, as loving and Godly parents as we can be, and try as hard as we can to raise our kids right, do our kids ever fake us out?

Well, these pictures of our girl Selena and her unemployed brother Lowry seem to give us a pretty good answer...

Guest Blogger: The Fallacy of the Never Trump Vote

This article was submitted to us by Ravi Crux:

I realize the near impossibility of persuading the committed NeverTrump voter, but I would be remiss if an attempt was not made.  This is perhaps the most important election of our lifetime, so this effort will not be in vain.  Most importantly, the consequences and implications of each and every vote may have dire and long lasting effects that will haunt America for generations.


Looking back with hindsight, who could have guessed that this would be the nominee.  Yes, Mr. Trump had many supporters from the beginning, but one would suspect if they honestly felt that he was going to make it through the primaries.  Total war, is the only phrase that comes to mind when considering that journey.

Deutschland Uber Alles?

Oder Deutschland Uber Islam?  Ja oder Nein?

Germany Above All Else?

Or Germany Over Islam?  Yes or No....

(Es tut mir sehr Leid. Ich habe kein Umlaut.)

Seeing the current state of affairs in Germany regarding the mass
influx of Muslims, memories of my youth are stirred up and I can't help
but ponder what led me to sign up for Herr Zvonkin's German class
in my freshman year of public high school in California.

Jonathon "Lactose the Intolerant" Siddoway - Risible In Perpetuity

And, Resting In Peace....

Let me start by begging your forgiveness for venturing into an unknown protectorate.

I learned many years ago that it's better to beg forgiveness than to seek permission, (especially when dealing with bureaucracies and government agencies, of which this is neither) and anyway, I'm certain Lactose wouldn't want me seeking anyone's permission.

Now, I may be overstepping my bounds here but, I believe Lactose would have encouraged me to always leap, and settle for a step, beyond my bounds.

I'm writing about a man whose only existence to me, until today, was his quirky nom de plume on the home page of the Nuking Politics blogsite.

Lactose the Intolerant

So, I've put writing this post off for days with the excuse that I "just can't find the right words".

I've come to the realization that there aren't any and the best thing I can do is just "go fer it" and ramble on. So I am going to ramble.

I found out a couple days ago that our dear friend here at Nuking Politics, Lactose the Intolerant, has passed away. It was very much unexpected and sudden. It happened in late September, and as is common with grieving families, it takes a bit for them to get the word out to friends online. Entirely understandable. I can't honestly think the first thought in my wife's head if I bought it would be to contact my computer friends.

She doesn't think they are real people anyway, so fat chance she would even do it. C'est la vie.

This is the part where I am supposed to say "what Lactose meant to me". Or some such thing. Personally, I think he would laugh at such a posting. It's not his style, nor is it mine really, and if I am going to be true to the guy, I'm going to do it the way he would do it. Probably.

His real name was Jonathan Siddoway. If he ever told me that, I don't remember. It's entirely possible, as I had a LOT of email talks with him over the years. I just knew him as "Lactose". Odd thing to call a friend, but that's what he went by.

And frankly, "Lactose the Intolerant", to me, is one of the wittiest and funniest names on the internet, even if it seems like "duh so obvious". I still never saw anyone else think of it in my 20+ years of internetting. So if you think it's so obvious, why didn't YOU think of it genius?

I can't imagine what he was like in person, because he lived in Utah, and I'm not even sure that is an actual state. It's nowhere near civilization, I know that much. So it would have been a horribly long drive. Or flight (do they have airports yet?).

But I'd say I know him. The he that is the him that is him. As confusing as that sounds, it means what I meant it to mean.

I'll put it this way. When it comes to political blogging, he had the funniness of any top 10 comedian you can think of, except he was also wicked smart. He would crack me up so much. Sometimes I would read something he wrote, and as I'm going along, I am like..."no, no, man, where are you going with this, wait don't, ahh...oh..LOL!"

That was his gift to this ragtag blog here. The man could turn a phrase like an artist paints a Picasso if he is actually Picasso. Which he would have to be, because otherwise that comparison makes no sense. I mean, your average artist out of art school isn't painting Picassos, and if they were, they would be called "Bobs" or whatever the artist's name is.

Anyway, Lactose can never grace us with any new stuff because he has a new gig now up in heaven. And I guarantee it pays better than his old gig, since I never paid him anything. Also, it's Heaven, so that's got to be better.

Dang, man, I am really going to miss you. We are all going to miss you.

I am also going to shove all of your old posts down people's throats for a while because, somehow, I think you would have found that hilarious.

Love you man. I'll see you again some day, and you can riff on how lousy this post was.

Your friend always,


You can find the central post for all things Lactose at IMAO right here. Harvey will be updating the post with links to various tributes and postings about Lactose, as well as his whole collection of posts on IMAO. Lactose will forever be listed as a member of the Nuking Politics team, and we will be running some of his old posts here for a while. Please feel free to comment below.
