    • The Silver Lining of Thanksgiving Past
      I had originally intended to write a rather cynical Thanksgiving weekend post – pointing out that the Indian tribes who helped the pilgrims in that first Thanksgiving feast made a big mistake by helping Europeans figure out how to live and prosper in the new world. Their reward, ultimately, was slavery, scalp bounties, smallpox (sometimes […]

Ok, stop digging (or *keep* digging)

Rush just can’t help himself.  He’s on today, flinging poo again at Sandra Fluke, saying misleading statements and still implying that her level of sexual activity is economically unsustainable and she wants a bailout from other people.

At the same time, he is trying to sound contrite, no doubt because his loss of sponsors is taking a bite out of his big, fat ass.  And you know, it does sound like there’s real regret in his voice- for himself.  It would be so nice if we could hear even less of Rush, so keep it up, Rush.  No one with a brain is buying these non-apology apologies.

But as to this “War on Women”, both parties are in on it.  The Republicans whip their base into soft white peaks while the Democrats cynically try to take advantage of the outrage on the left, hoping that all the women will come flocking to them for protection.  They don’t have to actually do anything.  I don’t know which party is worse.  Neither one takes women’s interests seriously.

If there was ever a time for women to get what they wanted, it would be now.  If the “left” wants our votes, they need to prove it – before the election.  Otherwise, it’s a game to them.  They think we’re just a bunch of stupid girls.

What goes around comes around.  The Democrats have a lot of atoning to do before any woman in her right mind should take them seriously.


One other thing: A lot of people are telling me that I wouldn’t be happy with Obama no matter what he did.  Actually, that’s not quite accurate.  I *expect* him to do the best job that he possibly can given that he wanted this job so damn badly.  However, I saw no evidence that he was taking his future responsibilities seriously before the election and I see no evidence now that he’s learned much.  If I were a teacher I might have written, “Barack fails to live up to his potential”.  If I were a shrink, I’d question whether he really wants to be president.  If I were a person with half a brain, I might observe that he is adopting all of the characteristics of the bonus class that he serves and who funds him.  I think Americans deserve better than this from our president.

But one thing you can’t say is that I haven’t been consistent.  I didn’t think he was ready to be president because he didn’t have enough experience (check!), his slash and burn tactics during the 2008 election had a disenfranchising effect on the Democratic base and would wind up undermining the foundations of the party (check!) and he consistently used misogyny and sexism throughout the campaign and no one was held accountable for it (check!).  Bottom line: no good ever comes of a bad seed.  (check!, check!, check!)

That’s not hatred.  That’s disgust and disappointment. If you expect nothing, you get nothing.

Monday: God vs Occupy Heaven

I’m taking it easy today on the blogging.  No manifestos {{collective sigh of relief}}.  I’m going to catch up on some other stuff.  In the meantime, enjoy this very topical Mr. Deity video.  And if you like this one, Mr. Deity has a series with some well loved biblical characters reinterpreted for a contemporary audience. :-^

Oh, and keep the pressure on Rush.  If you don’t, he’ll just take another form, like a giant slorg, with more ranting about feminazis, gay people, muslims, liberals, etc, etc…  Women may be the ones who take him down but we’re doing everyone a favor.  So don’t let up.


During a recent photo-op, Nashville’s police department took their new $300,000 aerial drone out for a spin.  It promptly crashed right into the SWAT team‘s Bearcat vehicle.

Maybe there’s cosmic justice after all.
