Astral Pet Peeve

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Saturday, February 16, 2013 in Last Frontier, Nature, Rants

As news came of the meteor crashing in Russia, NASA sent out a press release that the meteor had absolutely nothing to do with Asteroid 2012 DA14, which came within 20 minutes of Earth.

Oh, sure, it was a smidge over 17,000 miles from our planet, but it’s more dramatic when measured in freakin’ minutes.

Anyway, everyone was still wigging out, and the one thing that really made me boil was…. the name.

Asteroid 2012 DA14

The hell?? I understand that we are rather limited in our English language and that NASA and the Astronomical Naming Union have certain guidelines for naming celestial bodies. But really, there are about 6,500 spoken languages, of which roughly 4,000 are spoken widely, and there are other alphabets we can use. Tamil has 69 characters in its alphabet! Heh, I typed ’69′. Anyway, with all the brou ha ha over the Mayan calendar, why not name it something way cool to scare the hell out of everyone? They were tracking it since February of 2012. Seems to me they missed the perfect opportunity to name it….

MAYAN DEATHWISH

See? How awesome would that have been??

I swear, if they let me name astral bodies, I would do it for free.

Worst Apocalypse Ever

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, December 21, 2012 in Open Thread, Teh Funny

Well, dang….

Last night I was having trouble sleeping after being twisted like a pretzel at therapy, so I stayed up to watch a sorta sci fi flick called Python. Look, it had William Zabka and Casper van Dien in it. Stop judging me!! Anyway, after it was over I happened to glance at the time, and saw that it was after midnight. That had me thinking about the heightened security the schools were going to be enjoying, and the sandwich board-wearing peeps walking around, and Nazca Lines, and Chariots of the Gods. I knew it was time for me to take a muscle relaxer and call it a night.

And then I woke up this morning.

marvin lol

Stupid interpreters…

And what did y’all think would, or still might happen??

Titanium Isn’t Hard Enough

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 in 2012, Awesomeness, Politics

By now some of y’all who are lucky enough to live in Texas have heard of the Greg Abbott vs. Eurotrash kerfuffle. It all started when the members of the  Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) informed Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott of their intentions to monitor voting at polling places around the country on Election Day. Now, this is not new, nor did it alarm those of us familiar with the practice much, except the members were going to be monitoring for fraudulent conservative practices and doing so inside the polling stations. This came about due to a petition from liberal voting rights groups, including the NAACP and ACLU, that suggested the OSCE’s presence could help combat what they fear will be a “concerted effort to suppress votes from supporters of President Barack Obama”. Texas law prohibits any international observers from being inside the polling station, requiring them to be outside the 100 ft. perimeter. Well, our Attorney General was just NOT going to take that sitting down, and proceeded to inform the OSCE of their limitations:

“If OSCE members want to learn more about our election processes so they can improve their own democratic systems, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the measures Texas has implemented to protect the integrity of elections. However, groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas. This State has robust election laws that were carefully crafted to protect the integrity of our election system. All persons — including persons connected with OSCE — are required to comply with these laws.”

Well, the OSCE got their thongs in a tight wad, and they in turn fired off a letter to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, whining about Abbott. Ms. Clinton fired off a letter to Abbott, whining to him, and he replied that he was only enforcing existing laws, and that if she didn’t like it, tough shit*. Not backing down, and reiterating to the whole fucking world that he has bigger balls than all of European weenies put together and weighed in Jupiter, Mr. Abbott made sure to send out missives to ALL polling stations that they would also be responsible for obeying and adhering to current Texas laws. Translation: “I catch any of y’all letting them inside, and y’all will also be charged with a felony.” And what did that get him? Well, only the highest compliment evah! Possible banning from Europe!!

A senior State Duma deputy has called on Europe to ban Texas’ top prosecutor for refusing to allow election observers from Russia and other OSCE member states to monitor the presidential vote next week.

Sergei Zheleznyak, a Duma deputy speaker and United Russia member, said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott should face sanctions on a “position of principle.”

Because Russia has such a great track record on elections, or something. I imagine a conversation between the Euroweenies and Abbott would have gone like this:

OSCE Weenie: We are going to make sure your illiterate commoners do not rig this election for Romney, henceforth He-Who-Should-Not-Win.

Abbott: Y’all will obey the laws in this great state, or I will sling your asses in jail. Diplomatic Immunity my ass!

OSCE Weenie: Madame Secretary!! He called us names and threatened us, and hurt our feewings!!!

Secretary Clinton: You have to abide by international law, We are the WORLD!!

Abbott: Ma’am, rules are rules, and even your village’s idiot can figure that out.

Duma Dumbass: You will not obey international law?? Then you will be banned from Europe. BANNED, I SAY!!

Abbott: Oh, yeah? Like I give a shit! If I wanted to see bonfires, I would go to Aggieland, so kiss my ass!!

I’m telling y’all, Abbott has balls of adamantium.

*Poetic license ;)

Things of Note

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Sunday, October 28, 2012 in blogosphere, Politics, Scandal, terrorism

A few thoughts on what I have noticed around my corner of the world.

I have counted about 14 Romney/Ryan signs in my neighborhood. I have not seen an Obama/Biden one as yet. Not even from the ardent supporters from 2008, including my neighbors. As for bumper stickers, I saw two for Obama, and lost count on the Romney ones. The best bumper sticker I saw?

I found that pic at Legal Insurrection. The sticker I saw was on the rear window, above the brake light, and flanked by Gadsden flags. I ♥ Texas.

Unlike a few of you, I have many liberal friends at the social-site-with-faces. With two exceptions, they have refused to post any more political links at that site. The two exceptions? Well, one linked the “ZOMG!! TAGG ROMNEY OWNS VOTING MACHINES!!!ELEVENTY111!!!” story, which was quickly debunked in the comments, numerous times. The other one linked the Obama MTV interview, where he flubs the name of the Defense of Marriage Act, calling it the Defense Against Marriage Act. That link was flooded by plenty of her liberal friends calling Obama not only ignorant about the name, but also accusing him of flip-flopping over the issue, which he did. It was a rather awesome flame war among liberals.

Also, there have been no plugs for the SEAL Team 6 documentary airing on Nat Geo on November 4th. Usually something that makes Prez Obama look good is linked all over that site. So far, not a peep. My guess is, that would invite others to comment about the murders of our countrymen in Benghazi. And that is something that NO LIBERAL in my feed has brought up. NOT ONE!

Another thing I have noticed is the lack of denial coming from the White House as regards the Fox News exposé of the Benghazi emails and the timeline of events. My guess is to deny it is to bring attention to it, and the White House is trying to avoid that like herpes. But they can’t avoid it. Thank you, internet!

Anyway, feel free to add to my tinfoiliness in the comments. I’m sure there is more.

Finally, Something That Isn’t Bush’s Fault

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, August 27, 2012 in 2012, Idiotarians, Politics, Total Bullshit

This…. this is monumental, y’all. Our esteemed Prez has finally found someone to blame other than BushCheneyHalliburton: YOU!!

From his latest campaign email:

Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there.

“Y’all hear Romney ads more often, because I was a dumbass and spent too much money way back in June.”

But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.

“Where are you going to get the money for my mortgage and free gas?”

And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you ….{snip}

“Y’all have to pony up for my campaign or y’all will be back in chains!!”

We’re losing this air war right now.

“The little people are questioning me and not buying the lies!!111!!”

I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen.

“Michelle and the girls need vacations from their vacations, and those little balls of mine won’t putt themselves, you know.”

I find it ludicrous that he doesn’t have time to campaign. Aside from golf, campaigning is what he does most often. The fact is, the man is desperate. I’m sure he didn’t write this schpiel, but he approved this message. Blame comes easily for those who are humble, which is why he will never take blame for anything.

But it’s ok, Mr. Prez. You really did build this.

Michigan: The trees are the right height

Posted by ArmedGeek on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 in 2012, Politics

No, I’m not kidding.

What the fuck is wrong with this dude?

“I was born and raised here. I love being in Michigan”, Mr. Romney said. “Everything seems right here. You know, I come back to Michigan; the trees are the right height. The grass is the right color for this time of year, kind of a brownish-greenish sort of thing. It just feels right.”

“I like seeing the lakes. I love the lakes. There’s something very special here. The Great Lakes, but also all the little inland lakes that dot the parts of Michigan.”

“You know, we’ve been to Massachusetts. I love the ocean, too, I do love the ocean, but there’s something special about lakes, where you don’t get salt on you after you’ve been swimming, where there’s no seaweed, where you don’t have to worry about things eating you in the water.”

“I grew up totally in love with cars,” he said. “It used to be in the 50s and 60s, if you showed me one square foot of almost any part of a car I could tell you what brand it was, the model and so forth. Now with all the Japanese cars I’m not so good at it, but I still know the American cars pretty well.”

Mr. Romney told the crowd that he drives a Mustang.

“I love American cars, and long may they rule the world,” he said. “Let me tell you, I want them to do well.”

I understand that all politicians pander to some degree or another, but this is just insane.

Santorum Makes an Appearance .. and other news

Posted by ArmedGeek on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 in 2012, Extra Hookers, Government, News

From VerumSerum:

Santorum racked up wins in all three contests. He won 40%-35% in Colorado’s caucuses and that was his least convincing win. He was 45% to Ron Paul’s 27% in Minnesota and 55% to Romney’s anaemic 25% in Missouri.

I have to admit that I’d written this guy off as an also-ran way back from the beginning.

My question is: Is this about Santorum or is this about middle America being a bit pissed about what the east coast is trying to saddle them with?

Now, its easy to point out that a win here and there doesn’t mean anything, but knocking down three states shows that you can win. People don’t want to vote for a loser. This is part of Romney’s advantage. We’ve been told for so long that he’s the only winner of the bunch. Maybe a night like this will help change that opinion.

The Gateway Pundit brings us this bit:

The protesters suggested pulling fire alarms in the hotel where the conference will take place, screaming “fire” during conference activities, “glitter-bombing” participants, cutting electrical power, and barricading entrances to the hotel, according to the source, who requested anonymity.

“Speakers will be physically assaulted, not just verbally confronted,” the source told Scribe in an email. Two Occupiers, who the source also identified as members of the New Black Panther Party, “said they would be disappointed if they didn’t get arrested and planned to ‘make it count.’”

So how long do we put up with the blatant criminal activity from these fucking losers? Either they’re going to continue to escalate until they seriously injure or kill someone or they’re going to rush the wrong stage somewhere and get shot dead. And before you say, “Fine, fuck ‘em”, you know what the headlines would look like.

From HotAir:

Few have lived in a world in which a handful of corporations don’t run the food system. The food industry has made our world theirs. Instant meals and ready calories are as much a part of the fabric of late capitalist life as the culture in which they’re acceptable. Excising corporations from an economy that has come to depend on their products addresses the problem of added toxins in food. But it does little to change the circumstance that renders those foods a caloric raft for the poor, nor does it address deeper injustices within the food system spawned by corporate power.

Even the Food NazisTM are motivated by a hate of capitalism. Here’s the thing: You can still walk into a grocery store and buy fresh fruits and vegetables and uncooked meat. I know, I was surprised too. To listen to the Food NazisTM, the only thing you’d find in a grocery store is aisle after aisle of Twinkies.

Slim Pickings

Posted by ArmedGeek on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 in 2012, Politics

It looks like Cain might be on his way out…

“We have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud in some peoples’ minds as to whether or not they should support us going forward,”

Perry can’t seem to pull out of his slump.

Mitt Romney is still Mitt Romney.

So ….. Newt?

Not Romney

Posted by ArmedGeek on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 in 2012, Government, Politics

From TheGatewayPundit.com:

During his interview with Sean Hannity tonight Mitt Romney would not call Obama a socialist. Instead, the former Massachusetts governor said Obama was a typical “liberal democrat” like other democrats he’s dealt with over the years. Obviously, Mitt didn’t want to offend any of the media elites.

From HotAir.com:

“You have seen a lot of candidates look at their biggest vulnerability, call it a mistake, and ask for forgiveness,” Romney continued. “In my case that wouldn’t be honest.”

He affirmed that he believes the health-care program was the “right thing” for Massachusetts then, although he conceded that it hasn’t “worked perfectly.”

“If it hurts me politically, it’s a consequence of the truth,” Romney added. “I am not going to walk away from that. It’s right for states to come up with their own solutions. I doubt other people are going try and follow the one we put together. Maybe learn from our experience. Maybe come up with something better. But the wrong course is to have the federal government impose its will on the entire nation.”

This is why there’s a growing stack of logos on the right side of the page. Those are the candidates that are acceptable to me. Essentially, they’re not Romney. I simply cannot see how Romney would be an improvement over our current SCOAMF in any way.

So, in addition to adding Newt’s logo to the right, I’ll be adding this one too.
