Cowardice and Hatred Sittin’ In A Tree

Hopefully, the mouth-breathing morons responsible for this
low-brained reprehensible action will be brought to justice. It doesn't take a psychic to know that the men being sought probably consider themselves "real" Americans, are devoted to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and FOX news and identify as Tea Partiers (or worse).

The only bright side to that probability is that, generally, the Tea Drinkin' kinds who complain the most about the government usually do nothing about it. Many have never stepped foot into a voting booth let alone attended a public meeting or written a letter or made a call to their representative.

No, far from it. Instead, they opt to wallow in the fetid cesspool of ignorance barking their puerile and inane words to whatever like-minded nincompoop willing sit still enough to listen.

Predictably, these two didn't have the balls to carry out their hate drenched and deplorable action in the middle of the day. Rather, they opted to do so in the pre-dawn murkiness of a Sunday morning when, according to one maintenance worker who saw them from afar, they could  shout "racially charged rhetoric like "white power" and the N-word" while wearing their much treasured "camouflage attire." I bet they even made it back in time to gleefully attend some snake handling church revival meeting with their normally dim-witted eyes all alit with pride for their cowardly act.

I suppose, in Mississippi, stupid really is as stupid does. Let’s hope in this case, the authorities will find these two backwoods buffoons and show them that there are indeed not so stupid and very serious consequences for their actions.

Moronic Dr. Smith Look Alike Really is Lost In Space (at least when it comes to the American Political Process)

Put down your candy hearts and Valentine’s Day cards for a minute and get a load of the original Bubble-Headed Booby himself (AKA Tom Perkins).

Tom Perkins in his best
Dr. Smith from Lost In Space pose. Oh the pain! The pain!

Apparently, Perkins (a venture capitalist, who recently made a lot of people angry by comparing progressives to Nazis) told an audience in San Francisco Thursday that people who pay more money in taxes should get more votes.

The audience, making the understandable assumption that he was kidding, responded in laughter to his inane comment.

Imagine the awkward silence and shock that must have sucked the air out of the room when they realized that he wasn’t kidding – not in the least. In fact, he told a CNNMoney Reporter offstage that he “intended to be outrageous, and it was."

He didn’t mean outrageous as in ha ha hilarious. He meant it as worthy of causing outrage to those around him.

It’s wildly moronic, but it’s just the kind of crap-speak these clueless plutocrats love to utter at any opportunity that arises. The basic ploy - have mic will open mouth and spew forth garbage because even garbage will stick to the wall of those stupid or delusional enough to believe it. 

The one perk of Perkins? He has time against his side as he’s just south of being older-than-a-pile-of-dirt. Soon he and his fellow selfish, warped and woefully misguided lot will be tossed out with the rubble of forgotten history making no more of a mark on it then the dissipating smoke from the wick of an extinguished candle.

And The Horse You Rode In On: The Back Story of the F-Word…

Certainly several of you out there in FBville will find an occasion to utter the F-word today during an attempt to weather the weather or, at least, you'll encounter its sharp cornered, four-letter-damn-it-allness at some point during your day.

Perhaps it will occur when the mild-mannered town librarian flies feet first into the air after a trip fantastic over black ice. Or, maybe as you watch your neighbor's teenage son donut spin his I-like-to-pretend-to-be-an-adult SUV directly into your new mailbox.


Why not embrace the inevitability and ponder the f-word's fascinating history as you slug back your coffee before grabbing the shovel...

There’s a well-written article covering the history of our favorite four letter friend written by Kate Wiles on the delightful language blog “So Long As It’s Words”.

Once Again – Art To The Rescue

Once again, leave it to a work of art (
in this case an editorial cartoon created by the very talented Rob Rogers of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette) to make a most valid point about the asinine claim currently being made by the GOP which claims that Obamacare is a job killer.

Job Killer

In fact, Rogers does a good job on his blog of discussing the issues with these words, “The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office report on Obamacare says the health law will have an effect on jobs. It does NOT say, as the GOP would have us believe, that it is a job killer. Instead, as this story in the Washington Post points out, Obamacare will allow those who are forced to work simply so they can afford health care to make other choices.”

Hats off to Rob Rogers, his keen eye, wit and talent.

August Sings Carmen Habanera

This was described as “the most fantastic thing you watch online today” and indeed it was. It’s August Schram starring in the video and actually doing the singing in a short film called August Sings Carmen “Habanera” and it’s worth every second away from whatever you were doing before…
