200px-Maya-MaskeWe are only five days away from the Mayan Apocalypse and many are just realizing that they have not voted for our blog in the ABA competition for top “News/Analysis” blog. IT IS NOT TOO LATE! We are only 30 votes out of second place (and pulling ahead of Above the Law — perhaps the largest legal blog in the world). You do not want to meet your Mayan ancestors before cleansing your soul, do you? Think of the awkward stares and uncomfortable silence in the afterlife. Don’t risk it. Click HERE and vote. It only requires that you put in your email and give a password.

The registration is only used to prevent cheating and you can meet your Mayan maker with a soul as clean and unblemished as the God Kinich Ahau in ascending to heaven. We guarantee it. Don’t let any of those other blogs tell you this is not real. You owe it to yourself and those you love. VOTE NOW and go clean.

  1. “Given the events of the last year I am actively pulling for the end of the world.” -Frankly

    That makes two of us.


    I don’t know what you are thinking of, but for me it is Newtown, Conn., aka Ourtown, USA.
    From the NYTimes Opinionator column:

    “That incident brought home to me what I have always suspected, but found difficult to articulate: an armed society — especially as we prosecute it at the moment in this country — is the opposite of a civil society.

    The Newtown shootings occurred at a peculiar time in gun rights history in this nation. On one hand, since the mid 1970s, fewer households each year on average have had a gun. Gun control advocates should be cheered by that news, but it is eclipsed by a flurry of contrary developments. As has been well publicized, gun sales have steadily risen over the past few years, and spiked with each of Obama’s election victories.

    Furthermore, of the weapons that proliferate amongst the armed public, an increasing number are high caliber weapons (the weapon of choice in the goriest shootings in recent years). Then there is the legal landscape, which looks bleak for the gun control crowd.

    Every state except for Illinois has a law allowing the carrying of concealed weapons — and just last week, a federal court struck down Illinois’ ban. States are now lining up to allow guns on college campuses. In September, Colorado joined four other states in such a move, and statehouses across the country are preparing similar legislation. And of course, there was Oklahoma’s ominous Open Carry Law approved by voters this election day — the fifteenth of its kind, in fact — which, as the name suggests, allows those with a special permit to carry weapons in the open, with a holster on their hip.

    Individual gun ownership — and gun violence — has long been a distinctive feature of American society, setting us apart from the other industrialized democracies of the world. Recent legislative developments, however, are progressively bringing guns out of the private domain, with the ultimate aim of enshrining them in public life. Indeed, the N.R.A. strives for a day when the open carry of powerful weapons might be normal, a fixture even, of any visit to the coffee shop or grocery store — or classroom………….

    I have no solution. Does any of us?
    Gun control? People control (yearly psych exam)? The psych sick are those who do the massacres, but the individual killings seem all of us capable of doing.

    Do we cliing to our guns for use in a standoff with the Feds?, the personal OK Corral?, the power we get in an otherwise powerless environment?—-where our politics are bought, and we are part ot the deal?. Do we change our self-image to become those who abhor violence, and turn our guns in?
    Do we teach our kids to love and not karate?

  3. Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me,” affirms the accuracy of the Mayan calendar by noting that the last image is the Ikea monkey.

  4. Why would be the least bit interested is the doomsday predictions of a culture didn’t see their own extinction coming?

  5. I went over to the Morning F-Bomb on Daily Kos and put in a good word. Maybe a blog that gets a quarter to half million eyeballs a day will be able to generate a few votes.

  6. “So this is it,” said Arthur, “We are going to die.”
    “Yes,” said Ford, “except… no! Wait a minute!” He suddenly lunged across the chamber at something behind Arthur’s line of vision. “What’s this switch?” he cried.
    “What? Where?” cried Arthur, twisting round.
    “No, I was only fooling,” said Ford, “we are going to die after all.”
    ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    “The Answer to the Great Question… Of Life, the Universe and Everything… Is… Forty-two,’ said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.”
    ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
    ― Dr. Seuss

    I, for one, am planning to re-read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, come the Apocalypse….because I have not yet received my menu from the Restaurant at the end of the Universe and so my itinerary is not tightly planned….in short, I’m expecting a return trip…..

    “That incident brought home to me what I have always suspected, but found difficult to articulate: an armed society — especially as we prosecute it at the moment in this country — is the opposite of a civil society.
    Indeed, an evolution from left to right has been ongoing in the social realm.

    Vote for Jonathan Turley Blog!

    Sensibilities are discussed well daily at JT blog!

  8. @Dredd,

    This sentence was catchy, yes. But several other good points were made by the columnist. One was:
    —-Nothing aids a suppressive government like an idividualized-bound society of gun toters. We have all kiinds of suppressive and surveilance—both legal and illegal—by our own government combined with “tote ur own in public” state law movements.
    To which I add: nothing prevents a well-organized militia with nukes and rockets from protecting us from the feds. The local cops are another matter.

    I have voted for JT long ago. Maybe I could register a few more email addresses. although the ABA might come after me for cheating.!!!!!!

  9. I voted just like I did in November: Early! (Well, really, like whenever this great opportunity for JT to be a SuperBlog! was first mentioned.) Rock on everybody.

  10. I voted earlier also but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for TurlyBlawg.

    Woosty=^..^ Another great avatar; your avatars rock!

  11. Dredd,

    I think you are into something here. Backed by solid epigenetic research.
    But will we find a cure for our societal effects on the social amygdala before the Mayan shock comes.

    You are so sweet. Do you remember what star ýou left her/him on?

  12. No, because after the 21st all will be forgotten as there will be no one to remember. The ancient Mayans have predicted so; contemporary Mayans are wondering how stupid we can be while looking forward to the next year.

    I’m still wondering why civilization didn’t end at Y2K. My computer still works.

  13. “I’m still wondering why civilization didn’t end at Y2K. My computer still works.”~Ariel
    Civilization most certainly did end in Y2K……why do you think the World has gone so wonky????? (You don’t really think that this is what ‘civilized’ looks like do you?) And it begins again in 3 days…..I hope you are ready for it! ;)

  14. if the world does end tomorrow by just disappearing into thin air then you will be able to see all the way to australia and see nothing but people floating in the air, with no place to shit. this would therefore disprove the big bang theory. then gravity would take over and all the ass souls would meet in the middle in the big splat theory. so where clean socks to make up for your holey underwear. don’t worry about your socks getting dirty because there won’t be shit to walk on.

    just don’t ask where the hell your going, because it would be only a matter of time till one of those seven billion people has to fart in something that is smaller than an electron. butt, if the world ends fast enough then no smokers will have time to grab their cigarette lighters.

    now, with all the different languages being spoken all at the same time, this one thing will be understood is JESUS CHRIST, WHAT HAPPENED!
