Brian Williams, suspended news anchor and renowned American fabulist looks to be done like toast …
You know, that really burnt, charcoal textured toast that sets off yer’ smoke detector at 7AM when it jams in the toaster and becomes more briquette than baguette ,,,
lyin-brian-williams4Apparently, an internal NBC cover-up investigation has turned up evidence that our guy Bri has been spinning tales about his herculean feats and near superhuman bravery for quite some time now …
They found that he’s also embellished coverage of Israel/Hezbollah conflict, the Arab Spring and more …
My trust is broken man …
So I have some questions for you Brian …
1. Is your name actually Brian? …and were you actually born in America, or are you from like Kenya or some place like that? …
2. Did you actually ever work at NBC, or was that just some kind of publicity stunt you pulled off to make us all think you had a job? … hey, it could happen …
3. Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Communist party? … the GOP? ( I know, kinda redundant eh?), the KKK? or Destiny’s Child? …
4. 7 + 34 x 56 – 23 = ? …
5. If you were on a train that left New York at 11:30 Pm on a Tuesday, with two ex presidents and Elvis Presley (yes that bugger is alive and well and living in a rundown Paris studio apartment with Jim Morrison, an drug addled iguana named Ziggy, and several cats), and you all had a drink every time someone in the car got up to go to the washroom,and two drinks every time you exaggerated, how many drinks would it take before you claimed to have slept with both presidents and Elvis? … or the afore mentioned iguana? …
In reality, this whole story shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone … the news has mostly been propaganda and ideologically driven bullshit for decades … add in the fact that EVERY major news outlet in America is owned by huge conglomerates who really have no reason to disseminate the truth … this story is also a little sad, in that we as a public would even bat an eye when some news jock lies…shit, Billo the clown and Hannity the manatee over at Faux News have been getting raises every time they spin a new tall tale for years …so, in a way, ya’ can’t really blame Lyin Brian for trying to snatch his moments of glory and self administered grandeur …
So cya Brian … I’m gunna miss yer’ night time tales of fantasy and wonder …

some random shit that i’m staring at

some random shit that I’m staring at, wondering why I’m staring at it …
maybe it’s important …
probably not, but, hey why take the chance? … sooo …

random shit by hip is everything

They say you’ve got to spend money to make money … that just makes me feel like there’s some middle step I’ve been missing … no?

I don’t believe peeps who say they never masturbate “cuz it’s not the real thing.” … am I the only one around here who puts sugar on my Corn Flakes when I run out of Frosted Flakes? …

If Einstein were alive today, would he would listen to more than 10 minutes of recent scientific breakthroughs before asking you to describe that free online porn thing again? …

Would it not be easier to keep buying cats until one of them does something hilarious and makes me a YouTube millionaire, than to waste a pile of cash and time going to school to find a career? …

If babies could talk would they basically just say things like “Daddy, may I trouble you to clean a shocking amount of poo off my genitalia?” …

I don’t care if you’re a dog person or a cat person, I generally don’t date anyone with a tail …

I recently caught myself yelling “FUCK YOU” at a taco for dripping on my pants … ( just in case you were wondering who’s raising the next generation ) …

When someone says “I need this done yesterday” I think to myself “Well, there’s no fucking way I’m going to be bossed around by someone who doesn’t even understand how time works” …

No ageism? … I call Bullshit! … A baby seated in a tall wooden throne at this restaurant just shattered a vase of flowers unprompted & was then told how handsome he is … yet, last week I get thrown out for the EXACT same thing ..

Before I go out binge drinking should I always eat a stick of butter? … I know it doesn’t do anything but seeing as I’m already making really poor life choices anyways …

I’ve accepted every email offer I’ve ever received. My penis is now 235 feet long, and I’m told I’m getting a shitload of money from these Nigerians any day now …

Can anyone recommend a few thousand books on hoarding? …

There’s literally no way to know how many chameleons are in your house …

To the lame ass who wrote “Jimmy Crack Corn” …  You clearly cared that jimmy cracked corn enough to write a fucking song about it.

Is the shittiest thing about being bipolar is that it’s fucking awesome? …

Does anyone know how many calories you burn by sliding down a wall crying? …

At my age, it seems that Facebook’s only purpose is to remind me that some girl I played kissy-face-sweater-tug with in High School just turned 57 … sigh …

Okay, I’ve probably bothered y’all enough for today, so Imma take ‘yer advice and fuck off … for now …
I feel so much better now that I’ve gotten that stuff off my chest though … and my desk … toodles peeps …

“A corrupt, unresponsive and plutocratic disaster”: How Mitch McConnell and the GOP remade Washington in their image

Now that the GOP’s in control, Mitch McConnell is letting some things pass — and taking all the credit

mitch mcconnell 4 by hip is everythingRepublican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is by most accounts an awkward, charmless politician who is motivated by little more than a ruthless desire to accrue power and win his next election. He has no set ideological principles (he was once a labor-friendly, pro-choice moderate, for example) and despite having been in Congress for some three decades, no legislation of real significance bears his name. To all appearances, he is exactly the kind of nakedly ambitious cipher that our society rewards but that we the people claim to hate. I would, generally speaking, rather write about someone else.

But the depressing-yet-undeniable truth is that, besides President Barack Obama and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, no individual has made a greater mark on the U.S. government over the last six years than Sen. Mitch McConnell. He is the godfather of the obstruction über alles strategy that the Republican Party implemented — mostly successfully — from 2009 to 2015; and he is the party leader most responsible for the GOP retaking control of the Senate despite refusing to moderate even a tiny bit. And did I mention that he’s a leader of the war on campaign finance regulation, too?

So when the Hill reports, as it did this week, that McConnell’s next goal is to persuade the media and the American people that Congress has been more productive with him running the Senate than it was under the Democrats and Sen. Harry Reid, you should pay attention. And when mainstream, influential and ostensibly left-of-center outlets like Vox report that, after years of dysfunction and gridlock, Washington is finally “working,” you should be concerned. Because there’s an important lesson here — one learned through painful experience — and it’s not the one McConnell (or Vox) thinks.

That lesson, simply put, is as follows: The wheels of government are not once again spinning because McConnell has qualities of leadership and vision that his Democratic predecessor Reid lacked. On the contrary, Washington is working — relatively speaking — because McConnell and his party, which now controls Congress as well as the Supreme Court, is no longer forcing it to stop. And it’s vital we recognize the difference, or the next Democratic administration will be incapacitated by the McConnell strategy just as the current president was.

In fairness, that’s not entirely the truth. There is a scenario wherein the conventional wisdom in Washington, and within the political class more generally, could ignore the true nature of McConnell’s maneuvers without disallowing an effective Democratic president. But it’s one in which that president would have to govern with an agenda much like the one Obama’s pushing today with his focus on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, a tax holiday for corporations who “onshore” their “offshore” profits, the reauthorization of the failed No Child Left Behind act, and the Medicare “doc fix” that made sure America’s doctors would never have to worry about a pay cut again.

Not a single one of these initiatives, you’ll notice, could be fairly described as progressive. They’re not necessarily conservative, either. What binds them together, instead, is that their strongest supporters are all very wealthy — and most of them are corporate. That’s usually the case with bills that survive today’s Congressional gauntlet; they ignore the people altogether, and are sometimes even against the public interest. Without fail, though, they’re supported by the kind of lobbyists and organizations with so much money (and so few principles) that they’re happy to donate to whomever holds power at the moment. Et voilà! bipartisanship.

But what if the next Democratic president — or the one after, for that matter — looks to Obama’s relatively progressive first two years for inspiration rather than his pro-corporate finish? What if that president is more concerned with adding a robust public option to the Affordable Care Act; or making generous and state-provided parental leave like that found in the rest of the developed world the law of the nation? What if that president wants to take another shot at the Employee Free Choice Act (except this time actually try to pass it)? What if they want to do something really crazy, like hiking taxes on the one percent and raising the floor nationally for wages?

Well, unless our political elite sees that the GOP’s return to power and D.C.’s recent (corporation-friendly) productivity is not a coincidence, there’s no reason to think the terrible dynamic of 2011-2014 won’t come roaring back. So long as the structural flaw of the Constitution that McConnell exploited — the accountability gap between the functioning of the government and the public’s evaluation of the president — is not amended, any president who hopes to do something for the 99 percent without a super-majority in Congress is destined to fail. American government will remain a corrupt, unresponsive and plutocratic disaster.

And that is just the way Ted Cruz-style radicals and Mitch McConnell-style hacks like it.

BREAKING: mystery of the donald’s hair solved!

FINALLY!!!
The long running mystery of exactly what it was that has been living on Donald Trump’s head is over! …
In a scientific breakthrough that answers one of life’s most oft wondered questions, at last, the truth is revealed!…

dnews-files-2013-05-fluffy-caterpillar-660x433-jpg

You are looking at a rare yellow-colored caterpillar of the flannel moth. Wildlife photographer Jeff Cremer and conservation biologist Phil Torres spotted the caterpillar in an Amazon rainforest, according to a Daily Mail report. The two men run photography tours from Posada Amazonas, a 30-bed rainforest lodge in Peru.
Torres told the Daily Mail, “I’ve seen some bizarre looking caterpillars in my time of working in the field, but this was definitely the weirdest one I’ve ever seen. I wasn’t sure what I was looking at at first; it was this big yellow fuzzy thing.”
The “hair” actually consists of setae, which are long, fine silky appendages that, in this case, can cause serious skin irritations. If an unlucky person tries to grab one, they will get a handful of venom, released when the setae poke into skin. Like a bee sting, the injuries can be painful but, for most, are not life threatening. … well, that explains a whole shitload of stuff, doesn’t it? …

This ad ran in the Metro Edmonton on April 22, 2015 …
Which has since brought about the much deserved and to be expected proverbial “shit storm” …
Since all that stuff hit that fan, the peeps that be over at the Metro have pretty quickly done the ole’ two-step-walk-back and ass-cover, which is good, great in fact, if it was an honest mistake, but hey, ya’ took the dude’s money and ya’ ran the dude’s ad …
Maybe it’s time to pay a little more attention to what goes in yer’ publication eh? … Just sayin’ …
And to Greg I say, ‘’”Hey asshole, 1938 just called and they want their ignorance and hate back!” …

to be fair, here’s their statement …
On April 22, a political advertisement was published by Metro Edmonton in error. The statements made in this advertisement are highly offensive, target the gay community, and absolutely do not reflect the values, editorial viewpoints or policies of Metro. A newspaper is about relationships and thus about trust with readers. Our error in publishing this ad is that it damages relationships with the communities we continually support on a daily basis through our editorial and advertising creations. The error requires Metro Edmonton to state in the strongest language possible that we do not support the content of this advertisement in any way. We do not. We are a newspaper of diversity and inclusiveness.
We regret the error and are redoubling our efforts to ensure it does not happen again.

Sincerely,
Steve Shrout
VP and Group Publisher, Western Canada
Metro Daily Newspaper

and finally, a little about Mr. K …
in his own words …
Greg Keating, Independent
Age: 59
Occupation: Truck driver

Reason for running: “We must stop doing abortions in Alberta. We must repeal Bill 10. It infringes upon the rights and freedoms of non-gay citizens. Bill 10 is an affront to all Catholics; the forced insertion into our catholic culture of an alien entity (gay –straight alliances (actually gay pride clubs)) representing values contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a trampling upon our rights and fundamental freedoms.”  This is an outrageous and deplorable abuse of power aimed directly at Catholics. Every Catholic should be concerned.

a tidbit from his own website:
Q: Why don’t you discuss the other, more common, issues of the election?
A: Because that is not why I am running. Admittedly, my focus is quite narrow but these are the most important issues facing Albertans. They are matters of life and death, and freedom of belief, thought , and opinion. They are fundamental, foundational issues for our society. If we don’t fight back in the political realm we will have no participation in the shaping of our society. Alberta is drifting in a politically-correct, militantly atheistic direction and I don’t like what I see. I invite all Catholics and other Christians and concerned citizens to join me in this fight.

Michele Bachmann: The Rapture Is Coming And It’s Obama’s Fault
bat shit crazy by hip is everythingMichele Bachmann says the rapture is coming, thanks to President Barack Obama’s policies on Iran’s nuclear program and marriage equality.
In a radio interview last week, Bachmann, the former Minnesota Republican congresswoman, told “End Times” host Jan Markell, “We need to realize how close this clock is getting to the midnight hour.”
“We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the rapture of the church,” Bachmann said. “We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”
Bachmann cited the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran as a cause. The U.S. and five partner nations are discussing a deal with Iran that would prevent the country from developing or obtaining nuclear weapons.
“We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events,” Bachmann said. “Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”
Later in the interview, Bachmann again tied her rapture prediction to Obama’s foreign policy.
“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” she said.
Obama has said repeatedly that the goal of the nuclear talks with Iran is to prevent the country from developing a nuclear weapon.
Bachmann then went on to blame abortion and gay marriage for America’s “decline”, arguing that God is punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view.”
“Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States,” she said. “We will suffer the consequences as a result.”
Some Christians believe those who are saved will be transported to heaven just before Armageddon, which they call the rapture.
This is not the first time Bachmann has predicted extreme consequences from the Iran deal. Earlier this month, she claimed the deal would lead to “World War III.” And in a Facebook post, she compared Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who crashed the Germanwings airliner into the French Alps in March.
And just in case you haven’t had enough Crazy to go with yer’ morning coffee, here’s a few more for ya’ …

trump by hip is everything

The other day over at the Faux News Network, GOP sycophant  Neil Cavuto was kissing some pretty serious Donald Dump ass in an “exclusive” where they both pretended that Trump might actually run for president, and that he has some real ideas about taxes and other important ‘stuff’ …
The Dumpster was, as usual, bloviating and bellowing and blowing his own horn … as he is wont to do …
Craputo set the tone and polished the turd with “You ever look at what’s going on around Washington, folks, and just think, you know, ‘You’re fired, you’re all fired?’ Well I can’t say it as well as this next guy.”
Good <insert deity of yer’ choice here>, take me now …
I find it virually impossible to believe Neil-O or anyone else over at the fairly unbalanced network actually believes that this grifter and bankruptcy monger is going to run for president, and that this is nothing more than just one more chance to jack himself off admiringly in public, all in the hope of making just one more dollar this year but, there they are … Neil-O polishing the turd, and the Dumpster doing what he does best … lying and bragging … also, as he is wont to do … ad nausea actually … I’m so sick of this old turd …
Neil-O then breathlessly opined of his self absorbed amigo: “If I’m hearing the rumor mill correctly, he just might be going to Washington or looking to do that.”  …
Then the skies just opened up and the bullshit fell like rain with Neil-O’s incredibly dishonest attempt to present his idiot guest as some kind of tax-law expert …
“What would you do to simplify it?” the sycophant bleated …
“Frankly, it would be nice to get rid of everybody and just have either a fair tax, a flat tax or certainly a simplified code,” Dumpster responded …
(He then falsely claimed that the U.S. is “the highest taxed nation in the world, we’re number one in taxation.”)
(according to Forbes, Belgium has the highest income tax rate, while the U.S. is eighth … as yer’ buddy Ricky might say “Oops”)
“Are you serious and what would make you very serious and file the paperwork and run?” Cavuto panted.
Trump took the bait like a starving jackfish in a bog and leapt at the chance to brag some more and strut his ginormous ego …
“I built a great company in a relatively short period of time.”…
“It’s a tremendous company” …
Some of the greatest assets of the world and the world of real estate and other things, and I am tired, just sick and tired of seeing the way the country is run.”
Fanboy asked again, “Is it enough at this point, unlike four years ago, unlike eight years ago, where you’re saying, ‘You know what dammit? This time, I’m going to do it, I’m going to run?” …
Trump: “Well, I looked at it seriously four years ago, and you know I came very close. … I’m looking at it extremely seriously. I’ve done a lot of things that I’ve never done before. I have a very big staff of people as you know in Iowa, in South Carolina, we have a lot of people.” …
and on it went …
I had to turn off the sound as the slurping and breathless symphony of the sycophant blared on …
P.S. Donnie if yer’ such a great businessman, why do yer’ companies keep filing for bankruptcy? …

pop the gop bubble by hip is everything

the lies …
’facts schmacts’ …

Obama doubled the deficit

Nope…
Utter bullshit kids…
This was a favorite of the Mittens campaign. Throughout 2012, Romney repeatedly said, “The president promised to cut the deficit in half. He’s doubled it!” …  Nope … he hasn’t …
First of all, this line o’ crap depends entirely on voters not understanding the difference between the deficit and the debt …
In fact, the president has already cut the deficit by way more than half in his first five years. When he took office, the deficit for 2009 was projected to be $1.4 trillion. The deficit at the end of 2014 will be $514 billion, just three percent of GDP. That’s a nearly $1 trillion reduction in five years …
Not only that, but the administration boasts the lowest year-over-year increase in government spending since Truman, and it’ll be one of just three administrations in the last 50 years that will have ended with a lower deficit than when it began. The last Republican to leave the White House with the same record was Eisenhower.

Obama is destroying the economy …

Nope … another one that is just plain bullshit …
Corporate earnings and profits are at historical highs, wall street just set ANOTHER all time record … the deficit is shrinking …. jobless numbers are lower than at any time since the shrub was president … and the economy in the U.S. expanded more than previously forecast in the second quarter, propelled by the biggest gain in business investment in more than two years that bodes well for the rest of 2014 … even gross domestic product, the value of all goods and services produced, rose at a 4.2 percent annualized rate, up from an initial estimate of 4 percent and following a first-quarter contraction, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 77 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 3.9 percent gain. Corporate profits climbed by the most in almost four years.

Man-made climate change is a hoax and “Most scientists don’t believe the effect of human activities on climate is sufficiently well understood to make predictions about future climate conditions, with many believing that the modest warming that may occur would be beneficial.”

This crap completely dismisses two separate peer-reviewed studies  (PNAS, 2010 and Environmental Research Letters, 2013) showing 97-98 percent consensus among active climate scientists about the existence and cause of global warming. Nor does this lie acknowledge the review of thousands of peer-reviewed papers on climate change, concluding that only 24 of 13,950 rejected global warming.
And here’s the really sad and tragic part: Heartland Group, a favorite among conservatives ranting and railing about climate change cites a 2009 survey by Peter T. Doran and Maggie Kendall Zimmerman that supposedly shows “most scientists do not side with Greenpeace on the issue.”
Except that’s not what the study concludes at all …
Again, more bullshit …
The Doran and Zimmerman study found a 96-97 percent consensus (kind of a big number eh?) among specialized scientists that took part in the survey who agree that the earth’s temperature is rising and humans are the cause. The end of the paper specifically points out the greater understanding of climate change by scientists who took part in the survey and those without scientific expertise: “It seems that the debate on the authenticity of global warming and the role played by human activity is largely nonexistent among those who understand the nuances and scientific basis of long-term climate processes.”

Cold weather disproves climate change

Another right-wing fave in the eternally factually bereft fantasy world of the Fox Noise inspired and ‘informed’ ‘climate change is a myth’ crowd is an annual favorite …
Every fucking time it snows, and it tends to do that every single winter folks, you see the same old ‘bullshit machine’ rolled out. Whenever there’s a snow storm everyone from Hannity the manatee to Rush Limpballs suddenly acquires woodys hard enough to cut diamonds with …
And then out comes the oxy-contin/greed inspired lies that climate change can’t possibly be real because it’s fucking snowing somewhere.
What these clowns fail to explain to their low information disciples/ditto-heads is that Chicago, or St. Paul, or even Podunk isn’t the entire planet …
Small thing I know, but hey, it makes a difference Cletus…
Actual climate scientists (NOT the oil giants funded ones) base their global warming observations on global temperature averages …
So while it may be snowing outside Snitch McConnell or McShill Bachmann’s house, average temperatures year after year are indeed growing progressively higher at alarming and unsustainable rates.

Still on the climate change denier front – we are all exhaling releases “dangerous” CO2 , so therefore, climate change MUST be a lie

This easily ranks as the most ridiculous climate change lie of all time. Yuppirs kids, even more ridiculous than the blizzard thing, if that’s possible …
It’s truly fucking amazing to me that anyone except a half-a-brain dimwit would actually believe this one …
Or spew it …
Speaking of half-a-brain dimwits, here are some prime examples:

Glenn Dreck: “Carbon dioxide is basically this. (Exhales.) Look at how much pollution I just put out.”
While I totally agree that what Glenn expels is pollution, the COis by far the least serious crap that comes outta that boy …

Rush Limbpballs: “We exhale CO2. If it were a poison, it wouldn’t be part of the way we stay alive.”
Rush must have read the same science texts that Billo the clown read (see: the moon and it’s effects on the earth and it’s tides) 

McShill Bachmann: “Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of nature.” therefore, no problemo kiddies … 

Mitt ‘the Twit’ Romney: “Now I know there is also a movement to say that carbon dioxide should be guided or should be managed by the Environmental Protection Agency. I disagree with that. I exhale carbon dioxide. I don’t want those guys following me around with a meter to see if I’m breathing too hard.”
Well, as you proved in 2012 Mittens, not many people will be following you for any reason, so in the words of Uncle Louigi, “Make a relax” Mitt…

The ignorance displayed here is completely mind boggling …
Not to mention dangerous …
At fist glance , this “exhaling” crap sounds like it might actually contain a grain of truth to it and have at least some merit …
That is, if you’re really and totally into uneducated, unproven, ridiculously simplistic, factually starved explanations for what are very complex and serious topics …
But alas, nope …
Not only does human breathing not even make the list of greenhouse gases but, and major point here folks, the ecosystem is NOT built to scrub out and ‘take care of’ the unprecedented levels of CO2 released by the burning of fossil fuels …
Therefore all of that excessive CO2 we are constantly pouring into the atmosphere is just hanging around in the atmosphere, trapping heat and screwing with the weather patterns …
And destroying any hope that our children and grand-children will have anything remotely resembling a safe and livable world to inhabit …
You’re welcome kids …

Cars kill tons of people and no-one wants to ban them

Fuck me Mabel <faceplant>, where do I even start on this one? …
Unlike firearms, cars and drivers are heavily regulated by the government at all levels, from emissions standards to annual inspections to safety features, and on and on and on …
So are the flying of planes, doing surgeries, operating heavy machinery, and if the right has it’s way, everything to do with contraception and whether or not you can vote …
You can’t legally drive a car that doesn’t feature seatbelts, or has no headlights, license plates or mirrors, or drive a car that spews too much exhaust into the air …
You have to take both a written and a behind-the-wheel test to get a license to operate a car, you have to renew that license at regular intervals and, if you’re older, you have to prove that you’re physically capable of driving a car…
You can’t drive a car while drinking alcohol or impaired by other chemicals …
Or legally blind … <click link for a guaranteed face plant moment> …
And you can’t drive yer’ car into schools, Taco Bell OR Chipotle’s …
And in case no-one has noticed there are thousands of cops patrolling the highways and byways and, as most of you have seen at one time or another, they will penalize or arrest you for improper handling of a car – with literally thousands of laws to abide by, and penalties, ranging from fines to imprisonment to the government stripping you of your right to drive a car at all …
So if the NRA and its supporters are going to keep using this lame-assed car analogy, then let’s be fair and  talk about regulating guns and gun owners the same way we regulate cars and drivers …
Just sayin’ … fair is fair guys …
On a side note, many years ago, when a couple of kids crawled into some abandoned fridges and were trapped inside and died, there was an almost immediate reaction by government to regulate the disposal of old fridges and to regulate the manufacturing guidelines so that it couldn’t happen again …
The companies that make fridges were neither financially harmed, nor went out of business because of the new regulations, so the idea that some common sense approaches and guidelines for the manufacture and distribution of guns will somehow damage the gun manufacturers (see ‘smart guns’) is pure and utter crap …
And in case some of you haven’t noticed, thousands of kids a year are being killed by guns …
Further more, let’s all actually read the second amendment before waving that tired argument around … it doesn’t say that everyone and their dog (blind or not) has a god given right to wield weapons of any caliber … it says ‘well regulated’ militias do …
Not yer’ ‘don’t tread on me’ flag wavin’ uncles Cletus and Billy-Joe-Ray-Bob …
Also, the constitution is not ‘God given’ for Christ sake, it is a man made document …
It was written in fact, by a bunch of guys who had had enough of the church run governments of Europe … they, their fathers and grandfathers had fled the church run oligarchies in Europe to escape their ‘under my thumb’ approach … remember that one peeps? …
‘the revolution’ ring a bell anyone? …
In fact, a couple of those very same ‘founding fathers’ that Palin the Failin’, McShill Bachmann, Ted ‘I’ll say anything for a buck’ Cruz and their ilk love to ‘quote’ actually wrote extensive and long winded essays on how the constitution was NOT inspired by any god, religion or church, and that the country should NEVER be influenced by them …
Read a little history people and STOP listening to Fox Noise …
And Sarah, maybe you could have someone read it to you …

The Affordable Care Act covers abortion-inducing emergency contraception

There are so many Obamacare myths to choose from that it’s hard to even list ‘em all, but here’s some of the more prolific ones for ya’: death panels, IRS goon squads raiding homes, it’s a “job killing” law, it’s a “government takeover,” etc. …
These are all a pile of shit and definitely worth mentioning, but the lie about emergency contraception coverage might be the worst of the bunch and is so pervasive and ‘oft repeated’ that it even manages fool some liberals …
Contrary to the myriad of lawsuits by various ‘religious’ businesses and organizations, and the non stop ranting at Faux Noise, the various forms of emergency contraception covered by the law do not block implantation of a fertilized egg …
If these medications were indeed abortifacients, they wouldn’t be covered because it’s illegal for the government to do so …
(In fact, the current GOP house is so worried about this one that they have passed laws that enforce the laws that enforce the laws that are ALREADY on the books)
This one’s real simple people – while some emergency contraception blocks implantation, the emergency contraception that’s covered in the law blocks ovulation – not implantation …
But they’re not abortifacients, so guess what? … they should be covered …
Of course that won’t stop the lawsuits or factor into the bought and paid for opinions of the Roberts’ Court …
Alas, sad, but true …

It’s safer to have a gun in your house, or a concealed weapon on your person

Again, nope! …
So I’ll just let an actual Republican hack debunk this one …
David Frum: A gun in the house minimally doubles the risk that a household member will kill himself or herself. (Some studies put the increase in suicide risk as high as 10 times.) An American is 50% more likely to be shot dead by his or her own hand than to be shot dead by a criminal assailant. Also, more than 30,000 Americans injure themselves with guns every year.

Guns don’t kill people, people kill people

Bullshit!…people with guns kill people …
People without guns generally tend to just ‘injure’ people …
And guns without people just tend to lie there, doing nothing …
Argument over …
Get over it …

Voter fraud is a real and serious issue that requires strict new voter ID laws

Nope …
Not even close to true …
Prosecutions of voter fraud cases barely amount to one one-hundredth of one percent of total votes cast in a single general election. In Ohio, for example, Secretary of State Jon Husted scored big with zealots and bigots everywhere with his war against fraud by nabbing a whopping 20 potential cases …
20 out of nearly six million votes cast in that state in 2012 …
The Bush Justice Department found that there were as few as 80 successful prosecutions of voter fraud cases out of hundreds of millions of votes cast since 2000. For this ratio of possible-fraud-to-votes-cast we’re told we need laws that make it more difficult to vote?…
Not to mention the Republicans who just came right out and said it: this is all about electing Republicans.
Study after study proves that lower turnout favors the GOP, and voter ID laws are nothing more than voter suppression of the very people that may vote Democrat …

All Obama does is vacation and play golf …

140827-about-those-vacation-days

President Obama has spent 138 days of his presidency on vacation. The Republican led House of Representatives was scheduled to be in session for only 124 days in all of 2014. This means that John Boehner and company will spend fewer days at work this year than President Obama has spent on vacation in his entire presidency. The numbers are actually worse when one considers that the House is only scheduled to work for 97 days between January and Election day in November. Members of the Senate, like Ted Cruz, have had nearly as many days off this year as the president has had since taking office.

Tax Cuts Do More to Stimulate The Economy Than Food Stamps and Unemployment Benefits.

This one’s simple …
According to Moody’s Analytics:

  • Every dollar spent on unemployment benefits generates1.61 in economic growth.
  • Every dollar spent on food stamps generates 1.74 in economic growth.
  • But every dollar spent on rolling tax rates back to Bush-era levels only creates .32 in economic growth – that’s a 68-cent loss on investment.

    again …I call bullshit on this one

     

    lies on video

    the videotape …

    this one’s a simple one too guys … if you’re going to spew nonsense it is more than likely going to end up on You Tube, so think before you speak, and when you do spew the bullshit we all know yer’ gunna spew, give up trying to deny it after the fact over there on Faux and Fiends … we ALL have access to YouTube and it just makes you look like the fool you are …
    And if you right wing zealots and wannabes don’t believe me, ask yer buds about shit like “the 47%” or “macaca” or “legitimate rape and women’s bodies having a way of shutting that whole thing down” …

    jesus … my brain hurts already and we haven’t even started the stupid season …
    stay tuned, the clown car crash is only just beginning …

    amid all the hullabaloo about Hillary Clinton using her own private email accounts while acting as head of state, including an all out foaming at the mouth, pearl clutching freak-out over at faux noise, this story pops up …
    and yet, no real mention over at the stare at unbalanced network …
    hmm… seems odd to me that they wouldn’t get all nipple-popping, horny and moist about the same story from one of their own …
    I would think emails about nuclear plant security would be considered “sensitive.” …
    maybe it’s just me …
    I’m sure if Jeb was a Democrat they would be …
    sigh …
    maybe because old Jebediah is related to a world famous finger painter and cat portraitist from texas who was once president the right is just giving him the benefit of the doubt …
    could there be a little hypocrisy on the right? …
    nah, couldn’t be …
    and what about his emails before and after the 2000 election? Were they all saved, or deleted? … just wonderin’ …
    and while I’m a ponderin’ shit, how about Scott Walker’s private email issues? …
    will there be investigations by the fox gang into that too? …
    inquiring minds wanna know …

    As governor, Jeb Bush used e-mail to discuss security, troop deployments

    By Ed O’Keefe

    faux noiseJeb Bush used his private e-mail account as Florida governor to discuss security and military issues such as troop deployments to the Middle East and the protection of nuclear plants, according to a review of publicly released records. The e-mails include two series of exchanges involving details of Florida National Guard troop deployments after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the review by The Washington Post found. Aides to Bush said Saturday that none of the e-mails contained sensitive or classified information, and that many of the events mentioned in them were documented in press accounts, either contemporaneously or later. But security experts say private e-mail systems such as the one used by Bush are more vulnerable to hackers, and that details such as troop movements could be exploited by enemies.
    Bush is actively considering a run for president and has sharply criticized likely Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for her use of a private e-mail account when she served as secretary of state. He called it “baffling” that Clinton didn’t consider the potential security risks of discussing diplomatic and national security issues by using an e-mail account not tied to a government server.An unknown number of the e-mails housed on Bush’s server were redacted or withheld from public release because they contained sensitive security issues, Bush representatives have said.
    Aides also say Bush’s server was secure because it was kept at the governor’s office.
