sunday stupid

This is an actual quote that a conservative friend of mine posted on face book. Out of friendship, I will decline to comment on it there, but this is MY blog and I will say any goddamn thing I want to here. So first, the quote:
"Air Force One apparently just landed in Oklahoma. The President's time is valuable and his upcoming offers of moral support and government resources will be welcomed; but perhaps someone should have told him that lots of people in Oklahoma go to church on Sundays."
Really? Really? Is there anything that Obama could do that would please the Republican Party and conservatives? Resign? Die? Even those probably wouldnt satisfy them.

I know, I know, I'm tilting at windmills, expecting rational behavior in an area that it's pretty clear no rational thought exists. But, fuck, I'm tired of this bullshit.

Addendum: It's four days later, and now he's bitching about a European Human Rights court ruling against Christians who oppose gay marriage. I can well imagine his tone (and how opposite it would be from this one) had this been an article about Muslims being upset about some ruling not allowing them to apply Sharia law to something they wanted to do.
Seriously, dude, what is it that is unclear about Rule of Law?

eight years...

...since I first started this blog. I had nothing to say that day, but I wanted to have a place to say it should something come up. Eight years later, I still dont really have anything to say. This is probably why so many blogs have gone dark over the years. I dont know why I keep putting stuff on this one, really, except for the reason given above. Eight years ago, I had nothing to say; today, to be honest, I still dont (addendum: and I seem to be repeating myself). I say it anyway, which I why this blog has existed for eight years*. Eight years! Nobody even reads this thing anymore, as far as I and Sitemeter can tell. Perhaps that makes it easier.

Anyway, woot and all. Here's a comic.

* And, due to pre-posting, will continue for at least 2 more

quote for the day

"The various races are a result of thousands of years of isolated xenophobes fucking their cousins.

Keep this in mind the next time you’re going to make fun of the shape of someone’s eyes, you inbred hillbilly."

quote for the day

"Know what’s worse than babies having babies?

The dumb-ass society that started with the assumption that pretending they wouldn’t would somehow stop them.

Also, old people: maybe if you didn’t work three jobs to keep the vacation house, or go through three marriages because “you weren’t 100% happy,” your kids wouldn’t need to fuck each other to feel even for a brief moment that someone actually gives a fuck about them.

Video games and sexy movies and the rap music don’t fuck up kids. Shitty, selfish parenting fucks up kids. That’s 50 years of science.

The kids of today aren’t a “disaster.” They’re just the end result of the shrieking consumerist train-wreck that is the Baby Boomers.

If the world explodes, it’s because you put new TVs and cars and your own libido before your kids. Stop yelling about it. You can’t drown out the truth."

quote for mother's day

"Nagging's the fuel that makes a mother's love burn eternally."

yes, it's another quote for the day

"I don’t understand why the GOP is so hard on Obama.

In the 80s Reagan got the unemployment rate down to 8% from a starting high of like 11%, while billionaires got richer at the expense of the middle class, and they just let the banks go back to doing whatever they wanted, and they thought it was GREAT."
