What optimism for the New Year!December 14, 2016 Tim WorstallNewspaper Watch24 CommentsBarricade your uterus Lindy West worries that her uterus might be used for something or other. That’s optimistic, isn’t it? previousFuck Paul Mason, now he’s being dangerousnextIt’s possible that John Penrose could be a tad peeved with me 24 thoughts on “What optimism for the New Year!” JuliaM December 14, 2016 at 9:00 am “If you are a person capable of getting pregnant…” Does she mean ‘a woman’, as we call them here on Earth? abacab December 14, 2016 at 9:11 am “You have a woman’s uterus, milord!” So Much For Subtlety December 14, 2016 at 9:51 am Even aliens would probably flip her over and probe the other end. Just in case. NielsR December 14, 2016 at 10:06 am “Perhaps the close of every year feels this borderline apocalyptic, and we simply lose perspective each time” Hmmmmm, perhaps. Cynic December 14, 2016 at 10:09 am “Perhaps the close of every year feels this borderline apocalyptic, and we simply lose perspective each time” We may laugh, but assuming for a moment these people are actually sincere, it must be horrible to live like this. Can you imagine being that negative about everything? JuliaM December 14, 2016 at 10:45 am Cynic: “…but assuming for a moment these people are actually sincere, it must be horrible to live like this.” They deserve it. NielsR December 14, 2016 at 10:48 am @Cynic, well it seems a Guardian gig is less awful than some minimum wage McJob, so not much sympathy. And I suspect she quite enjoys playing the hero in the movie playing I’m her head. I laugh as mental hygiene, to avoid memetic infection. Mr Ecks December 14, 2016 at 11:52 am What vile cockrot the bitch writes. She seems to have been peddling the same poison all through the Scrawney Jug-Eared Cunts reign as well judging from the titles of her past end-of-year morale-boosters. “I wrote this on December 31, 2012 and found it weirdly comforting.” Likely the only kind of comfort available to middle-class Marxist stooges. 25 years in a socialist labour camp might give the dozy cow something real to whine about in her annual address. Except that the guards would beat her to death if they found any Samizdat she had written. Likely she would be an informer anyway. “Life is really, really hard and surprising.” Give us a break you whining bitch. “Here’s what has happened to me over (approximately) the past year: I moved to a different state, then back again;” Good job you didn’t need a soviet style internal passport then isn’t it? I don’t think they accepted suspicious moves on the grounds of “Dozy bitch with whims” ” I quit a beloved longterm job and started a bigger, scarier job; ” Doesn’t everybody? Errr….No. Millions are doing shite jobs and would just love a “beloved” long-term job. No bet on whether both jobs were all about leftist agitation tho’. There never seems to be a shortage of such paid activity for middle-class left-skunks. “I went through a soul-shredding break-up” Implies you have a soul. “and a complicated make-up;” From the look of her that is true at least. ” I got check-frauded for $800,000 (lol – flattering!); I turned 30;” She has 800 grand hanging around –at age 30–with zero talent save leftist whining? What a brutal circs life has forced on this poor woman. ” I acquired children;” ????–Abuduction? “my dad died;” He must have been sorry to miss the rest of the drama. ” my aunt died; my dog died;” Sorry about the dog. ” my tooth died;” It had probably had enough of listening to what was coming out of your gob. ” and every day, during all of that, a bunch of anonymous dickheads told me I was a fat bitch on the internet.” You are NOT just a fat bitch. You are a fat, well-off, middle-class bitch who spends her life spewing propaganda ( very poor stuff fortunately) on behalf of a death-cult that has brutally murdered 150 million of your fellow human-beings. There is no Circle of Hell deep or nasty enough for you. ” So, sure, maybe in January 2012 I promised myself I was going to run a 10k this year or whatever, but at this point, WHOOOOO CAAAAARES. Sometimes life gets in the way of our life goals. Sometimes the worst year is also the best year.” I’m sure the Gulags were full of people to share your sentiment. I hope your pathetic life picks up a bit while your poisonous politics plunges ever deeper into the satanic shitter. Rob December 14, 2016 at 11:53 am “You have a woman’s uterus, milord!” “I bet that uterus hasn’t…” Rob December 14, 2016 at 11:54 am Anyway, I think her uterus is fairly safe. This reads like an article on one of those militia groups in Montana preparing for giant lizards coming to kidnap them for their organs. Van_Patten December 14, 2016 at 11:56 am Mr Ecks Even The inimitable Steve will have his work cut out matching that! Fantastic, just fantastic! Van_Patten December 14, 2016 at 11:58 am The blog’s legends are on fine form today! Rob, I thought that as well – brilliant! Lindy West joins ‘The Alt right’….. Mr Ecks December 14, 2016 at 12:00 pm Thanks for the kind words VP but TIS has real wit whereas I have only venom. Ian Reid December 14, 2016 at 12:40 pm Lindy – 4.

So Much For Subtlety December 14, 2016 at 12:58 pm Lindy West worries that her uterus might be used for something or other. JD Sports warehouse is always looking for more storage space, or so I hear. Andrew M December 14, 2016 at 1:58 pm Cynic, > it must be horrible to live like this She has to believe it to be able to write this stuff. If she chilled out, the article would be boring. Besides, we enjoy watching idiots make fools of themselves: whether on reality TV shows, on radio phone-ins, or in the Guardian. We’re attuned to spot fakes a mile off, so sincerity is essential. Dennis the Peasant December 14, 2016 at 3:20 pm Anyway, I think her uterus is fairly safe. Take a gander at a picture of her husband and you’ll understand just how unnecessary a barricade would be on Lindy, irrespective of her looks. Dennis the Peasant December 14, 2016 at 3:23 pm This reads like an article on one of those militia groups in Montana preparing for giant lizards coming to kidnap them for their organs. Their mindset and Lindy’s mindset are really all that far apart… More a matter of style rather than substance. Gamecock December 14, 2016 at 3:25 pm ‘He [Trump] caves in to public opinion.’ ‘He listens to the people.’ There, fixed it for ya. Rob December 14, 2016 at 4:23 pm In other news, news organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to get people to pay for their content. Theophrastus December 14, 2016 at 7:21 pm “Can you imagine being that negative about everything?” Their negativity is largely a pose, a display: it leaves them feeling superior, because it shows they care and they understand, while evil rightists eat babies, destroy the environment, persecute minorities, increase inequality….cont’d p94. Brendan Commins December 14, 2016 at 8:38 pm I know some bright and pleasant fat women. She is neither. Bloke in Costa Rica December 15, 2016 at 2:59 am I don’t know if she needs to barricade her uterus but from the look of her you’d probably need to strap a plank across your arse to avoid falling in. Johnnydub December 16, 2016 at 3:16 pm “Take a gander at a picture of her husband and you’ll understand just how unnecessary a barricade would be on Lindy, irrespective of her looks.” Its laughable isn’t it. The bloke is a screaming Bertie. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
