There is an issue with reaching the deadpool site at the moment. You can get there from here: http://deadpool.hookersandbooze.com/. Apologies…

Anyway, I began to think about all the hullabaloo going around as regards sports teams names. Y’all recall the mascot for the University of Illinois, Chief Illini, was removed because it was considered a “hostile or abusive mascot”. There are several groups wanting to remove the “Native American” names from sports teams. Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, Florida State Seminoles… I don’t get it. How is naming your team after a brave group of people known to fight for their cause and sacrifice their lives in the name of freedom a bad thing?? Do you really want a sports team with a weak sounding name? Why not rename the Redskins for the most prevalent thing in DC? How about The Washington Politicians, or The Washington Criminals, or maybe The Washington Sewers?
Personally, I vote for The Washington Pussies.
Apparently, those same people, mostly younger people with Native American background, have no problems with the Oklahoma Sooners or the San Fransisco 49ers. And yet, what did the Sooners and the 49ers do to the existing Native American populations in those areas?
I swear to The Maker, some people just don’t have the sense God gave a box of hair clippings.
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!
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.
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.
And it’s a doozy!!!
Feds end probe of ‘America’s toughest sheriff’ Joe Arpaio; no charges
Y’all catch that?? NO CHARGES!! After wasting three years going after Sheriff Arpaio, the administration got nuthin’ and quit.
The announcement on Friday marked the end of an investigation that began in November 2010 at the behest of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to examine alleged financial improprieties by the county sheriff and his deputies.
A federal criminal inquiry into several of those matters was concluded last summer with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona declining to initiate criminal charges.
But hey, not to worry. The administration is still going to investigate those sneaky civil rights abuses the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has been flagrantly tossing about like salad. What I found interesting is the fact that the US Asst. District Attorney, Ann Birmingham Scheel, would not elaborate but only state the feds were dropping the investigation, telling County Attorney Bill Montgomery that the feds would “not to pursue state criminal charges related to the investigation.” The link above has been updated to remove that quote, but the original can be found here.
I’m still trying to see how being provided with pink underwear is an infringement of a civil right, but I don’t put anything past this administration.
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
News breaking today that Governor Mitt Romney has chosen Representative Paul Ryan as his running mate!!
Of course, the attacks have already begun. Surprisingly, most of them center around Ryan being a ZOMG!!! white guy. Funny, it never bothered the liberals to have a white running mate before. Or did I miss Biden admitting he’s Hispanic??
No matter. Seems to me, Romney is learning from the mistakes of his 2008 predecessor. And y’all know that the debate between Ryan and Biden will be epic!!! That alone just gave me a tingle up my leg
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Feel free to discuss in the comments.
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.
