Is that even a word? Well, I don’t care. It fits this guy to a “T”.
The thing missing from the debate so far is anger — anger that we live in a society where something like the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre can happen and our main concern is not offending the NRA’s sensibilities.
Since when do the liberals even bother NOT offending? Every single time a criminal uses a gun against a victim, the first thing liberals do is call the NRA a bunch of names and demand that guns be taken away. And this guy does NOT disappoint.
Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. It’s badly written, confusing and more trouble than it’s worth. It offers an absolute right to gun ownership, but it puts it in the context of the need for a “well-regulated militia.” We don’t make our militia bring their own guns to battles. And surely the Founders couldn’t have envisioned weapons like those used in the Newtown shooting when they guaranteed gun rights. Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right.
Hey, Skippy, the whole amendment is about guns. I know it’s my second language, but what part of A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed don’t you understand? Without our ability to keep and bear arms, we can’t be a militia that can protect the free state. And I bet Skippy thinks that voting should be a right, and not a privilege.
The stoopid doesn’t end there. He’s just getting warmed up.
Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.
The NRA is worse than CAIR, according to this dupe. Oh, and guess what, Skippy? The Communist Party is very legal. Ever hear of the CPUSA? The COMMUNIST PARTY USA?? Cold, dead hands works double for me, especially if YOU come for them, you pantywaist.
But the pièce de resistance? The advocation of death against those who disagree with him.
Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.
It’s his way, or dragged until dead. Last I checked, a death threat against a public official is a felony. But since he’s a liberal, he is protected by free speech, the right that is ironically protected by the amendment he wants abolished.
So, to sum up, Skippy wants to do away with your right to own and carry a gun, approves of torture and murder, and wishes to criminalize a civil rights organization that works to protect that right. Because for Skippy, Utopia is just a few fascist steps away.
I’m all about free speech, and his right to write whatever op-ed he wants. I quite like that he exposed himself for the idiotic fascist that he is. Makes it easier to keep an eye on the moron. I just hope he is enjoying the backlash he caused. I sure am!
Sometimes I read an article and have to wonder at the wilful blindness of the writer. Take this one, for example:
California’s average gasoline price set a record Saturday of $4.614 for a gallon of regular, up 12.8 cents overnight – but anyone who filled up in the last few days probably isn’t surprised.
Gasoline prices skyrocketed after the Exxon Mobil refinery in Torrance was knocked offline Monday by a power outage. Other lingering refinery and pipeline problems also contributed to the soaring costs at the pump.
Gas goes up over 12 cents overnight, and they think it’s due to a refinery being offline for a couple of days? How appalling. It’s almost as if they don’t know that the last refinery built in the US was in 1976, or that envirowhackjobs have prevented the further manufacture of any refineries in this country, or that several refineries are so out of date that it would be far more economical to completely shut them down than to upgrade them as per California standards and rules.
Analysts say prices might begin leveling off next week as fuel traders digest the news that the Exxon refinery returned to service on Friday. But other refinery difficulties and maintenance could keep California’s prices significantly above those in other parts of the nation.
You know, I would be laughing in their face and rejoicing in what they are reaping, if not for the fact that everything they mandate seeps out to the rest of the country.
This has to be the funniest thing I have read all day. True, I’ve only been functioning for the past hour, but I don’t think it will be beat. Not even by 9GAG.
CBS News Boss: We’re Not Biased
Says CBS is ‘constantly diligent’ to make sure network does not reflect bias
If y’all spewed all over your monitors, it’s not my fault. I told you it was funny.
“We still have millions of people coming to these broadcasts, and a great day for me is when we take incoming from both sides about how we handled a story,” Rhodes told 1200 WOAI’s Michael Board.
In fact, Rhodes said CBS is a beacon of unbiased news.
What “both” sides? He must mean the libertarians and the conservatives, because I have yet to hear of a liberal getting pissed off over a story on the CBS Evening News.
Rhodes acknowledged that there is a concern about bias in the mainstream media that has resulted in the creation of competing news networks.
He misspoke. He meant “competing NETWORK”.
“Fox was built into a great franchise because many people in this country don’t trust, or just plain don’t like, the other options,” he said.
By the way, I listened to the interview. He only mentioned Fox. No mention of the other cable news networks. I’m not surprised. I doubt he’s ever watched them, either. And as to “plain don’t like”, I doubt he is aware that the exodus of viewers is a direct result of bias. Hell, my dad left because of it, and he was a Walter Cronkite fan.
I was crushed to find my dad’s not perfect. *Sobs*
Mr. Rhodes insisted that CBS was not trying to reach certain demographics, but instead trying to remain constant as “mass media”. Still, I think he is seeing the writing on the wall.
“There is actually more news coverage today, more sources, more source material, information moves faster than ever before. I don’t think there should be some longing for ‘the good days’ of information. There is more of it now, and more of it is generally better.”
That’s right, buddy. It’s called the Rightwing Blogosphere, courtesy of the Internet.
Welcome to the real world.
I don’t know who the wiseguy is, but someone gave me a Newsweek subscription for Christmas.
And when I find out who it was, they will pay.
In the meantime, I do have fun with it. Some of the articles are too hilarious and I find myself not finishing much of it, except the letters section. I find it amazing how the editorial department picks them. And by “amazing”, I mean “totally obvious”. And their covers are no exception! But this week’s cover has a few people a bit aghast.
ZOMG!!!! Ok, it’s by Niall Ferguson, who isn’t a liberal, but he is a RINO. But this is NEWSWEEK we are talking about. They never, EVER, say anything derogatory about Obama. Witness:
And even this:
That last one made me laugh. A lot. The caption was pure gold. Seems to me that even Newsweek is starting to face the music.
I know that y’all despise even looking at the Prez’ visage, but think of it this way: this is the worst this week will ever get
I don’t care for “pretty men”. I find them to be unpalatable, and not just from a physical perspective. It’s the mentality that comes with the so-called metrosexuality of today’s quintessential man. Frankly, I despise a man who tells me he is “in touch with his feelings”. I don’t mind that he is, ok? I mind that he feels the need to tell me!! Seriously?? Keep it to yourself. Women are complex enough without metros trying to become more like them.
When was the last time we had a true hero, and what did he do to deserve that title? I can think of this guy. Jumping into a vat of acid to save another? That’s heroism. Putting a controversial photo on the cover of a magazine? Not so much. Yet we are supposed to think that our “first gay president” is a courageous move, that his declaration of “personal support” for same sex marriage is an act of bravery. All he did was dodge a bullet and get paid for it. If he really wants to dodge bullets and get a paltry salary for it, he should enlist and get deployed. Maybe then he could be considered brave.
Yesterday there were two major playoff games: NY Giants versus Atlanta Falcons, and Denver Broncos versus Pittsburg Steelers. I had no dog in those fights. But I will say I was particularly delighted to see Denver win. No….. not because Tim Tebow is a wonderful example of a Christian and a very nice guy. That’s just icing.
That kind of icing has no calories, and it’s so good for you.
No, the reason I was happy, gloriously happy, is due to the fact that after this spewage:
Of course I could be over-reaching here, and it may just boil down to the fact that Mr. Tebow happened to have dated* this young lady:
That would be enough to drive a 55 year old to boozing and bitching, especially when he is known for dating women whose resumés included porn films and strip clubs, and looked every bit like they did.

As we fondly recall, Keefy Olbermoron
was fired announced his his departure from PMSNBC in late January. It was a momentous occasion, since his show, Countdown with Keith Olberman, was the top-rated show at the network, and according to *ahem* news sources, it was PMSNBC who had chosen to end his contract with the network. Whatever… all I know is that Keefy screwed up and had become a sacrificial jackass lamb. Now he’s *ahem* the chief news officer of the Current TV network and the host of Current TV’s weeknight political commentary of the same name as his last gig. Creativity is not the man’s forte.
Anyway, as we all know, our friend Radical Redneck lives in the mad environs of New York. Yes, pity him, but not too much. Due to his proximity,
he Lizard was able to snag pics of Olbie’s Current (heh!) office, while on a visit. It must have been so sad to leave an office here:
Yep, 30 Rock, where the bitching du jour was over a glass door to his office. Now, the poor sap has to deal with this as his office:
Yep, a trailer. I can’t make this stuff up.
I bet he wishes he still had that glass door at 30 Rock.

This letter was written ten years too late. It should have been written in 1984. Now, I’ll be the first to understand that a student shouldn’t be disruptive in class, but this is ridiculous. And it wasn’t his “disruption” that was the problem according to the teacher. It was his “disregard for authority” and not blindly accepting whatever the teacher taught him. Kids are being taught to follow, not to learn.
And this is the reason we have the OWS movement belching and whining in a thousand countries around the world!!

Just when you think the journolistic intelligensia can’t be more ridiculous, they prove us dead wrong:
So enthused about promoting the far-left protests, ABC anchor Diane Sawyer on Monday night’s World News championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming that “as of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Excuse me?? A thousand countries?? What planet is she talking about?? Because last I checked, there were less than 200 countries on her precious Gaia. I’m no genius, but even I know geography. She could be forgiven* for saying a thousand cities in the US, but even then that would mean at least 20 per state. Unless there are 57 states, then it would be under 18 per state.
Newsflash, Ms. Sawyer: the rest of the world couldn’t give a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut about these protesters. They only care about our country imploding from division, something which your ilk is only happy to foment along. I don’t know if it was the shiraz talking, but do us all a favor and kindly STFU.

*No, she wouldn’t be forgiven for saying an obvious lie like that. I was being kind.
