Harold Ramis dead at 69 of complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis
Harold Ramis, the man behind numerous blockbuster films such as Ghostbusters and Groundhog’s Day,…
He was 85.
A true comedy genius, he passed away at the age of 91.
The former child star and diplomat has passed away at age of 85.
This weekend amid the heart wrenching hells of Venezuela, Ukraine, Syria, Thailand, and God only knows how many other countries, comes some good news. First off, Alec Baldwin is just plain givin’ up.
He’s just tired of being hounded by the “Gay Department of Justice”, y’all. He is tired of fighting TMZ photogs and wants to quit public life, so logically he is leaving NYC to move to LA, you know, home of TMZ and Hollywood.
Logic is not his friend.
On the heels of that bit of serendipity, comes the news that Piers Morgan’s show has been given the axe. And I don’t mean rank deodorant, which in hind sight would have been an improvement. I guess viewers of all political and ideological leanings got tired of his condescending schtick. Sure didn’t help that he came to a country that beat his own with muskets, either. And I am sure that being a know-it-all didn’t fly well, especially in view of his many phone hacking scandals during his time as a tabloid editor back in UK. Common manners dictate that you don’t shit on your host’s welcome mat.
As to the third, we can only speculate on who it could be. Personally, I’m kinda hoping it’s the entire cast of The View
Yes, I am thoroughly irked.
Some days ago, a celebutard whose career had stalled came out of the closet and declared her gayness over the media, and everyone went batshit. This right after some NFL hopeful came out of his closet to embrace his sexuality. These announcements dominated headlines for days, and in places they still do. And anyone who complains about the notoriety they are receiving gets shunned as an intolerant bigoted hater.
Meanwhile, protests in Ukraine, Syria, and Venezuela are beyond bloody, and most people remain ignorant and unaware. A bus of Korean Christians on tour in the Holy Land gets bombed by a suicide jackass, and no one hears about it. A co-pilot hijacks an Ethiopian airplane causing a mad scramble by several countries’ fighter jets, because he wanted asylum. Sweet Meteor of Death is going to zoom quite close to this planet, but not close enough. And in that other world we call Inside the Beltway, Republicans know that our Prez is violating the Constitution, but acknowledged they likely have no way to stop him, so they won’t even try.
Yes, I am irked. I do not care if you are straight or gay. If you are honest with yourself about your sexuality, good for you. Be proud, and move the fuck on. It is none of my business if you are gay or straight, or asexual for that matter. It is only YOUR business.You want me to cheer for you? Give of yourself, without thought of credit. I may get shit for this but in my opinion, coming out of the closet makes you look like an attention whore. You want it to be acceptable? Then be normal about it. No need to announce it to the fucking planet.
This celebrity cult we spawned is a death cult. We are ignoring the signs of our country’s demise in favor of who wore it best, or who vacationed where, or which bitch is the tackiest housewife of Beverly Jersey. It galls me that people know more about Charlie Sheen’s porn star fiancee than they do about their own country’s fiscal death spiral.
No, this post is not about urine. It’s about Photoshop™, the greatest scourge ever set loose upon the human female population.
Yesterday, my Little One asked me for a baby photo of hers to take in for her journalism class. They are working on the yearbook, and as editors they get to do a fun baby page. And I was looking forward to it until she told me she was going to “photoshop” it.
LO: I have to photoshop it.
Me: But why? The picture is perfect.
LO: No it’s not. My cheeks are too shiny and a strand of hair is sticking straight up.
Me: THAT’S WHAT MAKES IT ADORABLE!!
LO: *sighs* You just don’t understand, Mom. Every photo must be photoshopped for the yearbook.
Me: Well, that’s just silly. What is the point if every photo has to meet a standard of perfection??
Personally, I enjoy using the application on my phone. I love to change the color and add an outline and make pics black and white. But I do NOT understand the need to brush away imperfections to the point of making you look like a totally different person.
I mean, seriously?
What the ever-loving whale dong is THAT?? Madonna is 6,387 years old and everyone knows this. Why would you try to make her look 22??
I hate that women and quite a few men rely on Photoshop™. In my opinion, you are just living a lie. What say y’all??
Most of y’all know I don’t care much for Tom Cruise. I think he is an over-rated, egotistical peacock with the cranial capacity of a toadstool. But that’s just me. To this day I have never seen Top Gun, and can’t for the life of me figure out what Mimi Rodgers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes were using before they entered the Rehab of Normal Life™. Anyway, I was always content to just ignore him and give a pass to his entire filmography. Until I read this.
Tom says his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.”
What the ever loving FUCK?????
You DARE compare yourself to a soldier serving in Afghanistan??
You, who makes upwards $20 million a movie??
You, who has assistants at every turn??
You, who manages to have a mansion in Beverly Hills, an “estate” in Telluride, AND a condo you are trying to sell in New York City??
You, who owns a jet AND a Aviat – Pitts S-2B P-51 Mustang?? A FUCKING P-51 MUSTANG???
You, who drives around in a Bugatti Veyron because the Porche isn’t good enough??
You dare to compare yourself to an American Soldier?? A man who signs away his very LIFE so people like YOU can spout off your ignorance? A man who is lucky if his paycheck comes through each month? A man who has to live on that paltry $25K??? A man who will volunteer to fight an enemy there, just so that enemy can’t hurt the likes of people like YOU over here??
FUCK THAT ON A STICK WITH HOT SAUCE!!!
This particular Army wife thinks that you are so full of ignorant shit, giving you an enema would leave a pair of eyebrows. You have proven to the world what a complete and total jackass you are, and there will be no recovering from that. So please, go fuck yourself. Until such time as you are willing to stand in the path of a bullet for your brother in arms, or take the blast of a grenade to save the life of an Afghan child, or even go out and become the target of an unknown enemy, uncertain if you’ll survive long enough to see tomorrow, go find a couch to violate.
Screenshot of the deposition:
I am willing to give Mr. Cruise some veracity in thinking that being apart from your child is brutal. The comparison he chose to accept (since it was done by his counsel most likely at his request) is still appalling by virtue of the fact that he still compares missing his child, whom he can see when he wishes, and whom he has chosen to not see as often due to the demands of his work schedule, to a soldier who HAS to miss his child by virtue of the fact that HE is in a war zone. You may argue that the soldier also chose his profession knowing the risks.
But there is a difference between a choice made to help protect our freedoms, and a choice made to charge people $15 for a movie ticket.
Full disclosure to those lurking here: I am female. Thus, I can freely speak about my gender.
Yesterday, a young friend of mine, a gal I used to babysit when she was but a baby, posted a photo of State Rep. Leticia Van de Putte (D) on her social site wall. She is a legal aide to the representative, and does a fine job for her. As for Ms. Van de Putte, I do not agree with her politics, but she strikes me as a nice lady. And she was there for our soldiers at Ft. Hood when Hasan decided to play jihad, killing 13 in what we normal, reasonable folk call an act of terrorism.
But sometimes, emotions make women look stupid.
She is an ardent supporter for women’s rights and has been very vocal on the issue of pro-choice. That’s her right, and her job as having been elected by her constituents to do so.
But where I come from, it is far, FAR more important to strengthen your argument, than raise your voice. And it seems to me that raising their voice is ALL these women, and some rather liberated men, can seem to do. I have said it once and I’ll say it again: I do not care where you stand on the issue of pro-abortion or pro-life. But I do care that wherever you stand, you make a point using facts and logic, and not using the timbre of the noise made by the chords in your throat.
Simply telling people that you will scream to be heard is stupid, and shows serious lack of intelligence. I understand that sometimes you need to be heard, but for fuck’s sake, be prepared to argue once you get their attention.
Because you’ll need it. That, or liquor. Whatever gets you through the day.
Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with the family of diplomat killed in Afghanistan. The families of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Ty Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith couldn’t be reached for comment.
Rochester, NY, decides to spit on history. I mean, what the shit did we fight the Brits for again?
Californians are A-OK with being subjects. Screw that “liberty” crap and pass them more weed.
Here, have a happy.
I do like her shoes. They make me happy. Hope y’all have a good one!
I am ashamed to report that not even my alma mater, Texas A&M University, is safe from the evuls of diversity.
Last week, several students at Texas A&M took to their Senate to object to having a portion of their student fees pay for the Gay and Lesbian Students Association. Personally, I don’t care if my school has such a student group. I believe in freedom of association, after all. However, some students did not wish to have their fees go to fund a group that goes against their religious beliefs.
See where I am going with this?
Anyway, the Senate voted 70-65 to approve ‘The Religious Funding Exemption Bill’, which states:
“While it can be argued that many services are a worthy use of funds in order to provide an opportunity for academic success at Texas A&M, it is reasonable for students to object to a use of their own money that they feel violates their religious conscience. The broad varieties of religious views expressed by students are equally important, and the variety of services they disagree with should be treated with equal importance.”
How about that? Actually observing and enforcing the First Amendment, which this being a state school, they have to actually, you know, OBSERVE AND ENFORCE. Had TAMU been a private university, it would have been different. But never underestimate the power of
idiots ignorance academia diversity. While the Senate can approve or disapprove a bill, the Student President has final veto, and guess what he did?
Texas A&M Student Body President John Claybrook [on Friday] ‘confidently’ vetoed a very controversial measure approved yesterday by the student senate which allows Aggies to withhold the portion of their student activity fee which would go to the Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Student Center.
Because the needs of the many never outweigh the needs of the weepy few.
“This has caused great harm to our reputation and to the students who feel disenfranchised by the bill,” he wrote in a message.
Never mind the hundreds he just disenfranchised in the name of his goddess, Diversity. Gay trumps every time.
“This damage must stop today. Texas A&M students represent our core value of respect exceptionally, and I am proud of the family at this university. Now, more than ever, is the time to show great resolve and come together, treating each other like the family that we are.“
Just how is squelching someone’s religious freedoms showing respect? I don’t know about y’all, but in my family, no one agrees with anything, not even when it comes to Coke™ versus Pepsi™. This dickwrinkle believes that in order to show respect, you must trump one group above others. When I attended A&M, some of us decided to form a “dead group”, for archaeology. Guess what? We got NO FUNDING from the student fees. We had to raise our own funds to do anything. Why can’t they, as well?
This student president may claim to espouse Texas A&M as a family, but he has no idea what being an Aggie means. He barely cuts it as a 2%er. I hope all of the disenfranchised religious groups appeal, and bring to light the roaches pushing politically correct diversity down their throats.
It never ends. It’s Spring Break here and I have not had a moment’s peace, until Nomstress showed up yesterday. And no, I still can’t drink, so she got my share. Anyway, this week has given me its share of irritation. First, I had some people on the social-site-with-faces ask ME why in the world I would ever NEED a gun.
No, I am not kidding.
I was patient, and explained that I was fighting for a RIGHT, not a NEED. It didn’t register at all. So, I moved on from that, only to be informed by the
libtardic colostomy bag “friend” that it was nice that I “had seen the light” about guns being evil. This is where I politely informed him that it was time he “saw the light” and put down the fork that was making him rotund. BAM!! Entire conversation deleted.
Second, I had a friend complain that the new Pope was “too Catholic”. This is truly baffling. In her world view, since this is a world church, the Pope should be voted on by people of all faiths. Excuse me, but what part of ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH do you not understand? I asked her if I should be able to vote on the coming Caliphate, or perhaps on the new incarnation of the Dalai Lama. She informed me that that was different, because since I am not of those races, I should not have an opinion. After informing her that Islam is not a race, nor is Tibetan, she was at a loss to refute, resorting to the trope of “conservatives are racist”. I told her that my Puerto Rican heritage was offended. BAM!! Conversation deleted.
These are people with graduate degrees, and proof that higher education, and public education at large, does not educate. Sadly, I think we are past the point of educating the current generations. I can only hope that my children’s generation will make up for that lack.
A few months back, Eldest came to me for help on
a Language Arts an English assignment. First of all, I was THRILLED that she asked for my help. Second of all, I was flattered that she felt I would be knowledgeable enough.
Well, y’all know how kids are.
Anyway, she had to “interpret and analyze” a poem by Robert Frost, called Mowing. Now, I remember the poem from my 9th grade English class. It’s a nice poem, light and easy to follow. But what disturbed me was the teacher’s topic of discussion. She wanted the kids to analyze the sexual innuendos. At first I thought I misunderstood. But no….. the teacher wanted the students to explain how Frost was essentially writing about sex.
In a poem about a laborer cutting tall grass to make hay.
And y’all maybe wondering what I did.
Well, I told Eldest the poem was about the satisfaction of hard work, that sex had NOTHING to do with it, that that was something that Language Arts teachers began to push back in the early 1990′s, and that Robert Frost himself said the poem was about MOWING GRASS WITH A SCYTHE. Further, I told her that if the teacher had a problem with it, she could call me. She never called, and Eldest got an “A” on her paper.
Sometimes the curtains are fucking blue, but according to public education, the curtains are aliens with grape jelly golfing in a fishtank.
And people wonder why we have dumber kids now.
