A Confluence of Events

I was sort of hoping somebody was going to hide marijuana joints all over my apartment for me to find and smoke tomorrow, but I doubt it’s going to happen. :(

Where Is The Dignity In This?

Dogs are pretty clever. They get to have three squares and lots of hugs by treating their masters like Ultra-Kings. This doesn’t always result in respect and sometimes problems arise, but all-in-all, the symbiotic relationship has been proven to work really well for quite a long time.

Not wanting to get any further into philosophical observations I have about dogs, I’m going to get right to the great cartoon from from MarkFiore:

I prefer cats. They’re a lot like anarchists, but if you treat them right, they’ll love you till the end.

Humans should probably be democrats, but these labels get all mixed up today.

Republicans Eat Their Own Liver

Liver; Leader? What’s the difference?

Mitch McConnell (R-KY) doesn’t seem to be doing the trick for the radical righties, so they’ve decided to throw him over the balcony like an inquisitive reporter.

Think I’m crazy? Watch this:

h/t goes to BradBlog. Where else?

Forget About The Coke Ad

America isn’t the only place with diversity, but we have one guy who cares about it, and makes US safer.

It doesn’t matter how many times I watch these videos, I keep seeing new people who showed up to promote joy.

In chronological order:

Try to watch these wonderful videos in the best resolution you can. If you live in America? Good luck with that. We have some of the worst internet services in the world. :(

Poor, Poor Hannity – Don’t Let The Door Hit You

Earlier this month, Governor Cuomo, of New York said something that was on his mind about Republican lawmakers in his state. He actually uses the “E” word, (extreme), to describe some of the Republicans he believes are working against the interests of his state. Back in the day, that word was only used to describe young people who were trying to find another way to build our nation. We all know who that term really applies to, and I salute Cuomo for pointing it out.

From “Daily News“:

Who are they?” Cuomo said about the Republicans. “Are they these extreme conservative, right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that’s not who New Yorkers are. If they are moderate Republicans, like in the Senate right now, who control the Senate – moderate Republicans have a place in this state.

Sean Hannity of Fox “news” fame appeared to take the remark personally, as some other radical pundits did, and he said he is going to get out of New York as quickly as possible. That doesn’t appear to be the real reason he’s leaving. Looks like he’s cutting his birth ties there to get lower taxes. How noble.

The Daily Show knew exactly how to give Sean a perfect farewell:

Watch here.

Dave Chappelle ‘Deep Impact’ with Alien and Asteriod. “It’s the President’s Fault!”

This Dave Chappelle sketch is among a body of work Dave produced in the late 90′s and into Bush’s first term.

This one is especially prescient.

Anthem For The White Cry Babies

I don’t watch them, but from the little I’ve been forced to see while at the grocery store, I’d say this includes the fake reality referred to as “The Duck Dynasty”. I don’t care if you got your creds from the Jerry Springer show or get a million, making your own country look foolish; white trash will always be what it is, and nobody will ever stop assholes from having opinions.

I hate having to write that last paragraph, because – well – I’m an old white man and I feel I’m getting blamed for turning this country into a worldwide farce, when I’ve done a lot to try and stop it.

Personally, I prefer to pay attention to attractive young people with new ideas, but instead I get these bearded, stinking, fakes who are out for a buck and getting helped by – of all things ; The Arts and Entertainment channel?

Jesus! Help us now!

The Anthem: :D

Personally, I believe the loss of Ted Nugent’s reality show left a terrible void which had to be filled with…

A Case for The Elimination of Food Stamps. Charities Can Feed The Poor Without Government Help.

Children are starving in the U.S.As funny as it is informative.

Forbes Magazine guy makes the case that charities can feed the poor without gov’t help.

This is just another Christian – Tea Party – Libertarian meme of course.

But I’ve never heard it expresses with such certainty and seriousness. Forbes has finally jumped the shark with this clown.

Mike Lee Storms The Beaches of South Jordan

Mike Lee, sophomore senator from the embarrassed state of Utah, gets a full, ten minute standing ovation with chants of “we like Mike”, “we like Mike!

With children and mothers all around, this man, who stood up against labor laws which have prevented children from child labor got a longer standing ovation then president Eisenhower probably ever got at a speech.

Watch as much as you can stand:

The YouTube videos of Sir. Lee saying that anti child labor laws are unconstitutional no longer exist, but there are at least two websites that are trying to provide them:

Thinkprogress and Huffington Post.

I was present at a “tea party” “event” at the State Capitol, took pictures, and gave this account on this blog. Mike Lee was there, running for office. There was so much wind blowing and the dust was so thick that all of us almost choked and an American flag hit me so hard, I almost got knocked out.

Seriously!

But there is a better account of the scope of the deceit. I only observed three buses, but the original Tea Party, which was a TRUE grass roots movement, got the story right:

We should band together!

Update: The Deseret News had this story: Hundreds rally for Sen. Mike Lee despite low approval numbers
From the article:

“I do not approve of him and I do not think he is fulfilling the best interests of his constituents,” said Mel Walker, who held a sign that, at one point, was ripped from her hands by Lee supporters.

Sounds about right. I lost numerous “IMPEACH BUSH” signs in that manner.

Let Me Try To Simplify This…

When these stories are new, a lot of speculation goes on in the media; which is normal.

A man drives his truck up the capital steps in Utah – which were designed to not allow vehicles to drive up there – according to the Deseret News:

When the Capitol was renovated several years ago, the steps were built at a steeper angle as a security measure, designed to make a vehicle either bottom-out or be unable to make the climb.

“It was just the perfect-sized truck with the right amount of clearance to do what it did,” he said.

The same Deseret News aticle from page 1 claims:

Green has several DUI convictions and minor traffic violations, but no other criminal history in Utah.

The Salt Lake Tribune claims:

The man’s prior criminal history in Utah is minor: a few traffic violations and a charge of unlawful purchase, possession or consumption of alcohol by a minor when he was 18, according to a search of court records.

Some reports said the man wasn’t able to be tazed, but this report from The Associated Press said:

Troopers confronted him on the building’s third floor, where they stunned Green with a Taser, punched him in the face and arrested him.

I don’t know if this was a ploy to legalize marijuana or pump-up the drug war; a scheme to increase “Homeland Security” and the Bluffdale mega-spy-center or maybe it was only a youthful indiscretion.

Now here’s my point…

The fact remains that this dude could have just walked up those stairs and right into the building with a gun and shot anybody he wanted to, but he didn’t have a gun.

On Chrysanthemums

flowers

A great friend of mine, who worked in the garden business once had to plant a full grown tree into a very rich woman’s garden. The woman was unsatisfied and told the gardeners that they would have to replant the full grown tree into a different postition.

It was as if she we’re re-arranging her living room.

My friend was not happy; Not because he would continue to be making money on-the-hour, but because he would have rather been planting Chrysanthemums.

True story.
