Another random part of the Equestrian official apparatus - and why Spike was away in Look Before You Sleep · 12:50am May 28th, 2023

The Royal Messenger Service has been part of various arrangements over the centuries. Once it and the Office of Public Proclamations - which now also handles most press liason work for the Crown and the government - were two wings of the same pegasus, so to speak. Later, after their division and at a time when they were highly-developed and royal funds low, Princess Celestia allowed their services to be rented - a decision they would have accepted from no-one else (and even on her word

NEVER. TALK. TO THE POLICE! · 12:38am Jun 10th, 2017

Of all the things I learned in my security training, this one fact will remain constant in my brain:

NEVER. TALK. TO THE POLICE!

Even if you are innocent! This is especially true concerning the Feds. They are not your friends. They are agents of the state. Their job is to put you in prison, even if you are innocent. Keep this in mind.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS. IT IS NOW SAFE TO TURN OFF YOUR UNITED STATES. · 8:27am Jan 20th, 2018

We are currently experiencing the worst economic crisis since the great depression, but it's okay because the invisible hand of the free market is going to gently caress us while our New Empire accelerates its decline.

Apparently we have reached the part where Trump goes bankrupt and then runs away.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

  • If you work for the government, you can't go to work tomorrow, sorry. At least, if your role is considered nonessential.

Today in Idiocy · 2:51pm Nov 13th, 2017

In case you are unaware, a hacking collective known as the Shadow Brokers infiltrated, and may still be inside, the National Security Agency of the United States. This news broke last August, but the media attention on it has been thin. (Ah, the whims of the media…but that's not the topic of discussion today.) In short, the Shadow Brokers stole powerful cyberweapons, which have since been used in diverse attacks across the world, from hospitals in Indonesia to the European branch of FedEx to an

Cornerian Government · 12:46pm Apr 3rd, 2022

Sorry that it takes so long for the next chapter to come out, but I have been trying to find out more about the Cornerian Government. Like, is Pepper the leader of Corneria or is there a greater authority figure like a president or a council? And so far, I found nothing so I'm hesitating. In parallel, I have also been researching more on the next universe to be visited (one of the few Nintendo universes that I never played a game so I need to catch up a lot). There's particularly a lot of

And who voted in this snowflake?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6932549/Calling-people-disabled-offensive-replaced-Access-Inclusion-Seekers-plan.html

Yes, it's the Daily Mail which means we should take it with a grain of salt given it's the equivalent to Fox News over there, but... Honestly! If you want to really offend disabled people, go around calling them retarded or spastic. Those are truly offensive terms to the disabled and the handicapped, not disabled itself.

Gay Marriage Is Now Legal In The USA! · 4:11pm Jun 26th, 2015

Hooray! :yay:
It seems that on the 26th of June, the government decided NOT to fuck up for a day, and now same-sex marriage is legal! Though I'm personally straight, I am fully in support of this, and I wish all of my homosexual and bisexual followers a great day!

It's been like 2 years, huh? Well I had a thought that I need to spell out, again more for myself than for anyone else, but which is nuanced and complicated enough that I need to write it down, and that other people might just want to see. And I just so happen to have a blog with my random ramblings in it. So here we go again.

Man I should really catch up on ponies.
