Mid-week Tidbits

Let’s take a pause from the work week and check in on what’s happening in the blog world.  Wow - are those - flames and lighting ahead . . .

imageimageimageimageimageimage

HELPHELP!!!!plEASEIT’s those MOOSLIMS BRAINwashing OUR CHILDS again!!!!!222!!!  And this time with NinTENDO???!!!??

Yes, it wasn’t bad enough that they’re lulling our sweet children towards Allah with Manchurian Dolls, now our Nintendo games are “things we have to be scared of too.”  Almost as scared as I am of Pammy Shrieks.

Noah worries that Republicans are heading towards extinction.  Not if our girl Sarah has anything to say about that!  Also!

I need to post more fire!!  And brimstone too!! Because Obama is leading us down the path to becoming a OMG Pagan Nation.  Michael Novak frets:

On January 20, President Obama called for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. He also declared his intention to give multiple rights and privileges to homosexual couples.

Leading to the obvious conclusion:

From these announcements we learn that President Obama recognizes no difference between the Jewish-Christian covenant between a woman and a man (a covenant that they will have and nurture children, if they are so blessed), and a civil contract between two persons of any sex, in order to set up a household of affection and sexual favors.

This is a relapse into paganism. The point of monogamous family networks is to treat male and female with complementary and mutually cooperative dignity and to tie the power of sexuality (male, especially) to self-sacrificing communities of love.

and blah, blah, blabbity, blah, Obama has doomed us all, blah, blagggghhh.


And if all that isn’t enough to make you long for the weekend, over at The Politico a couple of “journalists” are rubbing their hands over the idea that we really should forget the stimulus plan and do nothing.  Do nothing?  A million jobs lost, millions of homes in foreclosure, credit dried up on the vine, bailouts wasted (OK, well maybe that might be an argument) and we should sit by and do nothing?  What possible rationale could exist for that?  Well according to Andrew Schiff, an investment consultant at Euro Pacific Capital and a card-carrying member of the stand-tall-against-the-stimulus lobby, because we’ve been bad and we deserve to suffer a little:

But there is also a cultural dimension. Many of the Do-Nothings argue that a painful recession is the best way to destroy America’s runaway culture of irresponsibility and debt. Economic turmoil, after all, has a way of grounding Americans.

Wow, this guy would get along great with jenniforhillary.

This argument is also put forth:

For the Do-Nothings, the argument isn’t about economic nuance, it’s about right and wrong. They say that borrowing more money to finance a stimulus package will pass a crushing and possibly permanent debt load on to the next generation. “The question is,” says Chris Edwards, the director of tax policy studies at Cato, “is this morally proper?”

Well, I would put this question.  Was it more morally proper to borrow massive amounts of money to finance an unnecessary, in fact disastrous, war that has killed thousands of Americans, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians, displaced millions more and pretty much ravaged the country’s infrastructure all so Bush could exact his revenge on Saddam?

Given a choice, I’m gonna go with “yes” it is morally proper to borrow money to infuse the nation with capital to create jobs and give the economy a needed stimulus.  It may not be the perfect answer but doing nothing, while it may give a lot of rich bedwetters some satisfaction, is not good for the U.S.A.

I think her dishwasher talks to her, too.

Jeebus on a shishkabob, what a parade of assholes. I believe it may have been Sadly, No! that noted Shruggo’s tragic descent into acetone inhalation-induced dementia. As we say down South, bless her heart!

Regarding our skipping down the road to paganism, it would be an improvement if you ask me. What these troglodyte defenders of “traditional” marriage never admit is that the original purpose of that institution was to transfer property—i.e., women—between men. All the hearts and flowers shit is a modern addition. Let’s let The Geighs in on it, shall we? Or we could all chuck it. Makes no never-mind to me.

Oh, and isn’t it heartwarming to see the wingnuts regaining their fiscal conservative principles now that Shrubya’s not shoveling billions into Halliburton’s coffers? Lawsa-mercy, a poor woman might get her mitts on a buck. Better slam the vault shut. Hypocritical pricks.

I getting pretty sick and fucking tired of hearing these folks use the collective “we” when talking about our tanking economy, our personal irresponsibility regarding finances and debt and the rest of this bullshit.

I’ve never had a fucking credit card debt in my life, and any money I owe anyone can be traced back to my immediate family (although I do think I owe Wamu like 190 bucks for an overdrawn atm card circa 2001).

I don’t live above my means because that would mean actually purchasing shit I can’t afford, and that would mean no money for rent and my two favorite vices, beer and smokes.

I didn’t cause this financial clusterfuck, in fact, we—and I use that collective quite openly—poor folks can’t afford to fuck anything up, we’re too busy ensuring there’s enough cash to get through until Monday.

You want irresponsible, look no furhter than our lawmakers who passed the disastrous bankruptcy bill—who refuse to take health care seriously as a key component in financial struggles for Americans across the economic strata—the same fuckwads who turned a blind eye while Wall Street and their political errand boys and girls allowed them to raid the national treasury all the while scolding the little folks about economy, thriftiness and living within one’s means.

These shitsacks, who make usury a way of life have the unmitigated gall to talk about morals? These scabrous con men with their ponzi schemes, their mutual back scratching, their payola we call campaign finance have the sheer audacity to lecture us on what ethical, moral behavior is?

It’s like listening to Ted Haggard bemoan how hard it is to not to want to suck cock because Jesus wants him to eat pussy.

Oh, and add one other thing—Republicans are as dumb as a box of rocks.

From the good folks at Whiskey Fire—

Pax Moronica

I just read a piece in the online Wall Nut Journal onion pages by someone affiliated with the Hoover Asylum. And you’re right, that’s my own damn fault. But I’m not looking for sympathy, though it did hurt quite badly. I’m not even asking you to “read the whole thing,” insofar as it is a lament for Obama’s apparent abandonment of Bush’s wildly successful Mideast diplomacy. (No, really, it is.)

I was just interested in this paragraph as a point of history:
In the ebb and flow of liberty, power always mattered, and liberty needed the protection of great powers. The appeal of the pamphlets of Mill and Locke and Paine relied on the guns of Pax Britannica, and on the might of America when British power gave way. In this vein, the assertive diplomacy of George W. Bush had given heart to Muslims long in the grip of tyrannies.

Indeed. Whenever British ships hove into view, natives all over the planet had the exact same response: “hooray, here comes the liberty.” Just like now the universal response to the roar of American planes is, “oh look, they are dropping even more freedom, in the form of powerful explosives.”

Now that’s some Grade A class bullshit, ahistorical nonsense in the same vein as crackdoodles who claim history will vindicate President dipshit and his cohort of fumbledicks.

And for those with an interest, particularly our loser Jerseymen/maidens, Washington’s Crossing by David Hackett Fischer is a wonderful historical read. It’s even better for those of us who either lived or currently live in the areas where the great battles of the winter 1776-77 took place.

(as for our resident Brits, yes, we still gloat.)

I was outside listening to Obama’s inaguration speech last Tuesday, apparently I missed the crackle of a million fReichtard wigs going SNAP. I love it. Obama is going to reduce these assholes to shrieking and flinging poo just by going about the people’s business. I’ve already got money on Pam being the first wingnette to claim that Obama is sending her disturbing, panty dampening dreams.

This is a relapse into paganism. The point of monogamous family networks is to treat male and female with complementary and mutually cooperative dignity and to tie the power of sexuality (male, especially) to self-sacrificing communities of love.

Self-sacrificing love communities strapped to male sexuality sounds pretty damn paganistic to me. Actually, that’s an insult to pagans. It sounds like a fricking wingnut wet dream complete with men wielding the especial power of their sexuality at will. (Of course they’ll only wield it at the human ladies! How dare you suggest otherwise.)

Is anyone watching Hardball and see Dick Armey trash Joan Walsh?  I’m trying to dig up a video, but MSNBC won’t have it ‘til after the 7:00 ET show.

Catch the rerun if you can.  THIS needs to be a PUMA prowl.

I would eagerly trade the “Islam is the light” doll for the Singing Snowmen novelty figurine I was given this Christmas. They trigger flashbacks from a childhood ugly incident in a snow fort. And they’ve ruined the Nutcracker Suite for me entirely.

Your Bipartisan Stimulus Package Update, btw: passed in the House, but so far not one Republican has voted for it. It’s an excellent game: push for compromises, then vote against it because you know the Dems have enough votes to pass it anyway. Final: No Republican voted for it.

And speaking of games, Dick Armey to Joan Walsh on Chris Matthews: Politics is a game, little girl, you shouldn’t take it seriously. I bet it’s on YouTube already.

I’m waiting for these sanctimony-of-marriage, think-of-the-CHILDREN! types to grow a pair and start practicing consistency by demanding legislation that would A) not only outlaw hetero divorce, but bring back stoning for adultery (as long as we’re insisting upon using Teh Big Book of Bible Fairytales as our Rule of Law, that is), and B) would dissolve all marriages that fail to produce spawn sans fertility intervention within two years. Cuz marriage is about the offspring, doncha know?

Otherwise, shut the Holy Mother Fuck Up, You Hypocritical Shitstains.

gimme: Since Walsh was defending the Obama administration, we’ll see if PUMA finds it prowlworthy.

Worst thing I’ve seen on political TV in years.

(as for our resident Brits, yes, we still gloat.)

Heh. I’m a Brit, but also Welsh (and my ancestors no doubt were both shafted by and fighters for the ole blood-soaked empire at various times), but ...

1776: RICHARD PRICE PUBLISHES “THE NATURE OF CIVIL LIBERTY”
Price, a prolific author of books on divinity and theology, is best known for his “Observations on the Nature of Civil Liberty” in which he fervently supported the right of the American colonies to independence. For his work, Price was honoured in both England and America, where he was offered citizenship. On October 6, 1778, The American Congress resolved: “That the Honourable Benjamin Franklin, Arthur Lee and John Adams . . . to apply to Dr. Price, and inform him that it is the Desire of Congress to consider him as a Citizen of the United States, and to receive his Assistance in regulating their Finances.” ...

Haven’t seen the Richard “Call Me Dick” Armey video yet, but his Wikipedia entry has already been updated accordingly.  Damn liberals and their internets!

Said entry also repeats the Family Guy line:

In the episode of Family Guy where Peter becomes a cigarette lobbyist, he meets Dick Armey and makes fun of his name, asking if his wife’s name was “Vagina Coastguard.”

Gimme, it has so much competition, we may have to split the Televised Grotesquerie Cup winnings five or six ways.

But Armey is way up there.

I still have a soft spot for David Letterman’s retort when Dick Armey called Barney Frank “Barney Fag” (and then, like a typical GOP wimp, didn’t have the stones to own it and pretended it was an innocent slip of the tongue). Letterman just said “I’d be more careful about what I called other people if I was walking around with a name like DICK ARMEY!”

“(as for our resident Brits, yes, we still gloat.)”

Actually my mother says that England should celebrate July 4th as “the day we got rid of the entire disaster waiting to happen” or something :) 

As a Pagan I take offense at the comments of the dude who was dissing my religion (or lack thereof), would he find it okay for me to call him an idol worshipping heathen who supports the degredation of women?  As far as I can recall Pagans haven’t caused any wars in recent history, haven’t engaged in wholesale slaughter of non-believers and haven’t done their utmost to convert non-believers under penalty of death.  But then that’s just me. 

Oh and Sarah Palin can go and fuck herself, Also.

PS) As a curious aside my ancestors are buried alongside those of George Washington at St. Oswalds’s Church in Warton, strange that I would marry a man named after him :)

You obviously haven’t attended any of our family reunions.

Goat-skin leggings, horned masks, lots of psychadelic drugs, chanting, bonfires and open shameless copulation ... oh wait, I’m flashing back to the virgin Connie Swale and that horrible Tom Hanks/Akroyd Dragnet movie.

I’ve always liked the word Pagan. If my etymology is correct, it derives from the Latin pagus or pagani and described those who lived outside the lands under Roman control.

I mean, when the Romans call you pagan, you know you must be some bad-assed, forest-dwelling voodoo scattering wunderkind.

Actually my mother says that England should celebrate July 4th as “the day we got rid of the entire disaster waiting to happen” or something

Many Brits thought the American wars were huge mistakes for Britain. Of course, when you have the likes of George III ...

Wait, didn’t we just foist our George on an unsuspecting world?

I mean, when the Romans call you pagan, you know you must be some bad-assed, forest-dwelling voodoo scattering wunderkind.

As an American of Scots descent, I take pride in the fact that the Romans had to build a wall to deal with the Scots. I guess they figured that anyone who painted themselves blue and ate their dead was someone not be fucked with.

Humbolt-

lawmakers who passed the disastrous bankruptcy bill

Which is why I dropped Biden from my bumper sticker with a pair of scissors, he’s a man of the people, unless the people’s interests conflict with banking or insurance industries.

If I were Hopey, I would watch what I said around Biden.

BTW I had some problems with my free clipart gifs and forgot to h/t Tom65 for link to Shrieky’s Nintendo madness in comments at Hissy Memories post (if I try to update it I think I’m going to lose them and I know how much everyone looks forward to free clipart gifs in posts.)

Me and the other .1% of pagans in this country thank you all.  Though seriously, what havok have we done?  None.  What death have we caused?  None.  It takes some fucking balls to call us out when we have done nothing but hug trees for a couple of thousand of years.

This is a brilliant thread top-to-bottom. But I think I will forever treasure Humboldt’s observation that—for the Romans to call you “pagan”—you pretty much had to have a goat’s head and a tree growing out of your ass.

That’s like having a Shriner make fun of your hat.

Dick Armey?

Wasn’t he on Bewitched ?

It takes some fucking balls to call us out when we have done nothing but hug trees for a couple of thousand of years.

From one ardent tree hugger to another I think we are the ones who have the right perspective.

Check out the RumperRoom forum guys.  On the right side bar.

RumperRoom?  Where?

My own personal Armey prowl:

http://news.aol.com/political-machine/2009/01/28/rep -dick-armey-is-an-idiot/

Kevin, you declared a moratorium on PUMAs too soon!  It’s just getting better and better!

Today Barack Obama is the Pig of the Day because he capitulated to those woman-lynching Republicans and agreed to take family planning money out of the economic stimulus package, proving what a woman-lynching sexist he is.

And at the same time, they are on a PUMA prowl to stop Congress from passing the stimulus package because it’s a great big pork-barrel money giveaway that’s going to bankrupt our future.

Either they don’t understand that the family planning $$$ were to be part of the stimulus package, or they can live with the Linda Blair head-swiveling irony of their mutually exclusive positions.

Allan:  When you only randomly read it 10 pages at a time and then try and cut and paste it all together a few things get lost in the translation.  Like, any intelligent understanding of the, you know, “essence” of the bill.  But the words “intelligent” and “understanding” are hard to apply to PUMA behavior under most circumstances.

Hey, again, roasters, check out the RumperRoom forum - click on it on the right sidebar towards the top.

You wanted a dedicated PUMA thread - this could be it!

These shitsacks, who make usury a way of life have the unmitigated gall to talk about morals? These scabrous con men with their ponzi schemes, their mutual back scratching, their payola we call campaign finance have the sheer audacity to lecture us on what ethical, moral behavior is?

So good I hadda quote that shit.

I hate to be a jerk, but Biden is the worst of the lot for ram-rodding free-wheeling credit card usury deregulation and led the charge in destroying the bankruptcy laws for regular folks.

Delaware is a tax shelter for financial institutions, it is the onshore Bahamas-on-the-Bay that’s where he gets his power, not from blue collar Delaware factory workers, if there are any left.

Why Obama invited this snake into the White House is a mystery to me. If Obama has any intention of breaking up credit card gangsters, and legalloan sharking, he should look into a kevlar undershirt to drape over his back as long as Biden is in earshot. I’d sooner trust Blago.  Biden has the political morality of Joe Lieberman

Scooter -

I’d like to think that Biden’s influence on legislation is weakened considerably by the fact that he’s no longer in the legislative branch (Cheney’s and Palin’s theories notwithstanding).
