Come on now we’re marching to the sea

I can’t help but think about magic underwear when I see Mitt Romney.  I went to check out “temple garmets” (apparently magic underwear is considered to be derogotory) and to my surprise, they’re sold out.  Or maybe they just didn’t pay their ISP.  No matter.

This Web site is down for maintenance.

We’re sorry about the inconvenience. Please come back later.

What I’m really wondering about is at what point does this country wake up and start talking about the Mormon agenda?  We’ve been told how terrible the gay agenda is, which is kind of funny.  This is not the gay agenda. This is the rantings of a guy like Caleb Hesse. The gay agenda is more like mimosas, tea dances, I want to marry my honey and don’t tase me bro.

Now the Mormon agenda concerns me.  The Mormons came in to the State of California and dumped a chunk of their massive wealth towards advancing and then establishing in to law Prop 8.  Prop H8.  The Mormons wanted to marginalize a portion of the California population, deny them rights that shouldn’t really matter to any one except the consenting adults who have chosen to love and marry one another.  We’re not talking a man and a donkey.  The donkey can’t consent.  We’re not talking pedifilia, we’ll leave that to greasy right wing haters like Caleb Hesse.  We’re talking about two consenting adults.  In America.  Don’t tell me you want to create smaller government and then start telling me you’re going to amend the Constitution to define who can marry who based on your religious beliefs.  Don’t do it.  The gay agenda doesn’t involve telling any one who they cannot love or marry.  Don’t want a gay marriage?  Don’t marry a gay.  Michelle Bachman has a gay marriage.  She just doesn’t know it yet.

The gay agenda hasn’t chosen a candidate and used their massive fortune to campaign him to the highest office in the country.  The Mormons have.  All with money that is not taxed in this country.

Yeah, that’s just a tiny sampling of their real estate holdings.  They don’t tell anybody what they really own in the United States.  And they don’t pay taxes on it.  Sound familiar?  Where have I recently heard that someone didn’t want to disclose their taxes….oh yeah.  Mitt.  He says, now, who knows what Mr. Etch-a-sketch will say tomorrow, or 20 minutes from now for that matter, that it has to do with his religion, read tithing.  My call is that the slimy bastard didn’t tithe his required 10% to the Mormon church and he does not want the LDS to know it.

His one year of released returns shows that Romney donated just less than $4.1 million to the LDS Church on an income of more than $40 million.

That Mittens.  He’s just like you and me.  I bet if we gathered up everyone that reads PBE and pooled our resources we might come up with $4.1 million but we would never come close to $40 million.  This guy has no idea how the rest of us lives.  He gave more to the Mormon church on the one year worth of taxes he disclosed than most of us will make in, ten years.  He deducted more for Ann’s horse than most of us will make this year.  Who’s paying for this guy to run?  Mormons.  The Mormon agenda.

He has already said that he will push for all new computers to have blocks for porn on them.  I don’t care about the porn business, but it’s not his place to say who can and who cannot look at porn.  It’s that consenting adults shit again.  Of course long time PBE readers will remember when I got hacked and PBE was filled with bad Chinese porn, but I digress.

What they are trying to collapse is the Jeffersonian wall of separation between church and State.  They have the support of the tea baggers who are too stupid to understand what Thomas Jefferson meant when he wrote.

To messers Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson, a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.

Gentlemen

The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. [Congress thus inhibited from acts respecting religion, and the Executive authorised only to execute their acts, I have refrained from prescribing even those occasional performances of devotion, practiced indeed by the Executive of another nation as the legal head of its church, but subject here, as religious exercises only to the voluntary regulations and discipline of each respective sect.] Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association assurances of my high respect & esteem.

(signed) Thomas Jefferson
Jan.1.1802.

Pretty clear.  The Mormons are trying to change all of this.  While the religious right would scream that the gays are trying to recruit, the Mormons really are.  When was the last time a faggot knocked on your door and asked you to come to a tea dance?  Yeah never.

In spite of anything Michelle Bachman or the pray away the gay asshats might say, no one can choose to be gay any more than they can choose to be straight.  Because that’s not a choice, it’s science.  And genetics.  And shit the right wing just doesn’t get.

I really don’t understand why I am the only one that sees the Mormon Agenda.  It’s real.  What is wrong with our liberal media?  Why can’t they report this?  I’m calling Fox News right now!

Your body won’t be injured but in your mind you’ll get scared

For the record, I have several rants brewing, so that’s going to be the theme for a while.

Bubba is a head case.  We all know that.  He’s my head case.  I love that dog but sometimes he can work your last nerve.  Like jumping on Norman and starting the brawl to end it all when Norman was down with an abscessed anal gland.  Really Bubba?  Extraordinarily dickish.

So I spent $275 taking him to an animal behaviorist.  In this particular case I would have been better off with a witch doctor.  The idiot I went to, first words out of her mouth were about his prong collar.  I knew the conversation and the appointment were doomed.  The next person that pops off at me about my prong collars is going to get punched in the face.  And then while they are laying on the ground, I’m putting my prong collar on them and proving to them that they are an ignorant pile of parrot droppings.  A prong collar properly used does not hurt the dog unless a situation arises where a stern correction is needed.  When might a stern correction be needed?  When my dog is fixin’ to swallow your Yorkie.  Do you want me to say “Now Bubba, it’s not nice to swallow the Yorkie?” or do you want me to jerk him out of his dog suit and save your Yorkie the trauma of being swallowed by a 75lb Doberman?  They are dogs, we cannot predict what they are going to do.  We do our best to train them and hope for the best.  Every now and then, NATURE get the best of them.  So all of you Jean Donaldson wannabe asshats, kindly STFU.

He’s Bubba.  He is not the bastion of good decision making.  He’s Bubba.  There’s a reason he got that name.  Does he mind?  Yeah about 90% of the time.  Do you want to take that chance on the street?  I don’t.  So kindly shut your pie holes all of you so very concerned think you know everything there is to know about dogs types.  You don’t know me and you don’t know Bubba.

And can you hear the sound of hysteria?

Politics have really changed in this country.  I used to think if my guy didn’t make it, I wouldn’t like it but we’d get by.  Generally on the first Wednesday in November you might hear me say something like “I hope he doesn’t start World War III” or “at least I always do well financially under a Republican President.”   But then came Reagan.  You think about the stints where I lost my job and it took a long time to get back to work.  1981, President Reagan.  2008 GW.  I did get back to work under Reagan and did quite well after a year and a half jobless and then baking cookies.  Bush?  I had to find another way.  No one in modern history has screwed this country up more than that moron.  And I’m not so benevolent about this election either.  I’m sick of the rhetoric and I’m sick of the stupidity.

Todd Akin just needs to go away.  Go away.  You are an idiot, a misogynist idiot.

Paul Ryan.  Here’s a guy who has worked his entire life for the government, gotten everything he has due to our government and now wants to take that away so, well why?  It did him well.  Is it “I got mine you’re on your own?”  Paul Ryan is a government employee.  As a member of the House he enjoys a salary of $174,000 per year.  He is fully vested in his retirement plan after five years and his health care plan is the best in the world.  It’s not the one that we get, it’s the best in the world.  It’s like Ayn Rand collecting Social Security.  Or Ron Paul for that matter.  Or let’s talk about Koch Industries accepting government subsidies.  I’m just amazed at the people who defend these asshats.  There is no defense.  They are hypocrites.  They are all getting theirs while telling you to reject yours.  Yet there is a part of this country that is so stupid that they are allowing this to go on unabated.  Part of me says they deserve what they get.  The problem is I don’t deserve what they’re advocating.

How do you advocate less government and defend military spending?  The largest single cost to our government is the military.  While I strongly believe we should defend our country, I don’t know why we were in Iraq but the right wing rank and file was all over that.  And here we are ten years later and they still haven’t found one single WMD.  Or the Easter bunny for that matter.

Yesterday I was sent the list of the ten most depressing States in the union.  Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Tennessee.  Let me help here.  Blue State, red state, red state, red state, red state, red state, blue state, red state, blue state, red state.  70% Republican.  Nevada is a no brainer.  Gambling plays a huge part in that.  Arkansas, the people who work for the Waltons are a depressed blue state.  Is it a wonder?  West Virginia isn’t a surprise at all.  It’s union and it’s work is in the mines.  And the mining companies are such good corporate citizens.  Notsomuch.  That can’t possibly be depressing.  But the other states?  Yeah.

Politicians have always embellished things, that’s part of the gig.  Between Ryan and Romney, it’s hard to tell what the hell they’re talking about.  Ryan is all for less government unless you’re a woman.  Then he wants the government to tell you that you have to carry any child to term whether you want to or not.  Because that’s what fits with his personal code of ethics so it should fit with yours.  That is a one way street and does not work both ways.  The latest?  Obama wants to strip the work requirements of the welfare reform law signed by President Clinton.  Because he’s a black man and everybody knows black men don’t like to work hard.  In truth, the Obama administration granted a waiver requested by Republican and Democratic governors allowing each state more flexibility in administering the welfare work requirements in their states.  Dear Dipshits, that’s a good idea.  If you haven’t noticed we’re coming out from under the biggest financial disaster since 1929.  Who was President in 1929? Hoover, a Republican.  Who presided over the latest?  Bush II, a Republican.  And no, it wasn’t a result of Clinton’s policies and no Obama isn’t milking it.  It took Roosevelt over 10 years and a war to dig us out of that one.  Obama turned this bitch around in three and while we aren’t singing Happy Days are here again yet, many people are back to work.  Yes, we’re all making less money, unless you’re part of the 1%.

Seriously.

Everything we are being told in the mass media is tainted by 1082 people.  Everything.  They own all of the media outlets and they are controlling what you see.  And then they are telling you what you’re seeing and what’s right or wrong with it.  It’s become a massive propaganda campaign.  A friend of mine wrote a movie that was barely seen back in the 1980’s.  It starred Dennis Hopper, because it was the message he believed in.  A bunch of Viet Nam war vets fly around in an old B-29 and interupt television shows with their message against a particular female political candidate.  In the end, it turns out that she is a he and he became exactly what the polls said the American people would elect…a woman in her 50’s with certain physical and political attributes.  Here we are nearly 30 years later and art becomes reality.

And I swear to God, I am going to punch the next birther I run into.  Right in the face.  Because they are too stupid to live.

Mental wounds still screaming, driving me insane

There is something very wrong with Norman.  I don’t know if the year long lick granuloma finally caught up with his system or it’s something else, but there is something wrong with that dog.

Yesterday he insisted on being under my desk all day, which is den like.  He can’t move properly either.  He’s whimpering when he moves certain ways and can’t really lay down without yelping.  He’s not a happy boy.   And I’m a little worried about him.

Last night in keeping with his desire to be in a den-like atmosphere, he went on the far side of the bed where there is a dog bed but not a lot of room.  I helped him get down there.  He cried on the way down but then was fine.  I had just gone to sleep when I heard him whimper and then it was on!  Bubba jumped him and it was a cage match in my bedroom.

Imagine waking out of a dead sleep to that.  This morning I have a bone crushing headache which I am sure is combination of stress and the fact that I had them both by the collars, one in each hand trying to pull them apart.  It seemed to last forever but it was probably only two or three minutes.  I pulled a belt out of the closet and beat them in the heads until they let go enough to shove Bubba into the master bath.

I got tagged on the right hand.  Normally that wouldn’t happen, I know to keep my hands out of there but I direct you to the part where I was asleep.  Somebody got my thumb and my wrist, neither too badly.  Norman has a through and through on his muzzle.  Bubba had him down on his back and was just going insane.  I can’t believe that’s Norman’s only serious cut but it is.  Bubba on the other hand looks like Jake LaMotta on a bad night.  He got his ass kicked.  By a dog he had down on his back.

Thankfully no one’s ear got filleted.  No one’s throat was punctured and no one lost an eye.  I felt them get my hand and dropped them both immediately so a band-aid and some neosporin will solve my injury.

Life will never be the same here.  The boys will never get to spend time together again.  Baby gates will be the rule again.  Norman has the ability to kill Bubba.  Thankfully he didn’t last night.

Both boys are OCD, that’s part of the problem.  I had an appointment for Norman to see a specialist next week in hopes of getting some Prozac or something similar to take the edge off of whatever it is that makes him lick his leg incessantly   As yesterday progressed it became apparent that there is something more wrong with that dog.  He’s definitely in distress this morning and I really don’t think it has as much to do with his muzzle as it does with whatever it was that weakened him yesterday and lead Bubba to sense that a brawl to end it all was a great idea at 10:30 last night.

Bubba was next to see the behavioralist.  I’ve been watching him slide down the abyss with his OCD.  There have been times that I’ve looked at him and just said “Bubba, move away from the crazy.”  I can see in his eyes when whatever it is that makes him suck his flank and run circles in the yard is torturing his little dog brain.  It has become time to address the crazy in Bubba.  It became a priority last night.

It was a bad dream asphyxiated, watch me bleed

I’m baaaack!

After a month screwing around with wordpress and my host, you can imagine how much pissed off bottled up opinionated bile I have to spew.  It didn’t help that I made several calls to my host and they were the problem all along.  I was on an old package and they never moved me over to the new one.  The guy on the third call said “You need to move over to the business package”.   How much more does that cost?  Nothing, it’s the same as what you’re paying, it’s got more memory.  Voilå!

Here we go!

Well, Chick-Fil-A appreciations day was a huge success.  So proclaims the billions of ignorant meme’s flying around.  A banner day for hate and bigotry, which is clearly alive and well in Amerikkka.  Awesome.

I’m a little sick of the Rovian liars.  OK, a lot sick of them.

Jackson Pearce, who is somewhere between a little slice of awesomeness and one of the smartest people in this country offered this.

She gets it.  And watch home girl quote the Bible like a pro! It’s not about chicken.  It’s about a basic human right that Dan Cathy, the President, COO and über douchebag at Chick-fil-a, has been funneling MILLIONS of dollars to deny.  The Winshape Foundation funds radical, hateful, bigoted ventures with the spoils from Cathy’s chicken restaurants.  From boycottchickfila.com

I understand that Chick-Fil-A is a “christian” company and, just like you or I, can donate to anybody they damn well please.
My understanding is that they choose to donate to various extremist anti-gay groups.
When you give them your money they turn around and give that money to anti-gay groups.
You must decide which soul you want to feed.

We’ll return to the definition of a Christian in a minute.  Right now, we’re following the money.

How bad could it be you say?  How about $2 million in 2009.  Two million dollars to these assholes.

  • Marriage & Family Foundation: $1,188,380
  • Fellowship Of Christian Athletes: $480,000
  • National Christian Foundation: $247,500
  • New Mexico Christian Foundation: $54,000
  • Exodus International: $1,000
  • Family Research Council: $1,000
  • Georgia Family Council: $2,500

The Marriage & Family Foundation has this to say.

 

The Family Foundation believes in marriage as a lifelong union between one man and one woman, an institution of God and a foundation for civil society. An abundance of social science shows us that men, women, and children benefit economically, physically, and emotionally from a stable, two-parent marriage and family. Marriage promotes social order and provides a vehicle for long-term economic development and security within society.

And God bless them for putting that nice negro couple front and center on their website.  No subliminal message there.

Exodus International, the pray away the gay guys, is the organization that talked up their “solution” in support Uganda’s legislation that potentially puts homosexuals to death.  It ain’t about chicken.  It’s about genocide.  Now Exodus International is trying to back off saying “reparative therapy” doesn’t work.  Can’t wait until Michelle Bachmann hears about that.  Michelle Bachmann never met a proven fact she couldn’t question in the name of batshit crazy.  Of course the fact that she is elected to our congress and thought she was Presidential timber is another bucket of shit.

You know, Jesus was in the Bible too.   He was that liberal Jew boy that said inconvenient stuff like:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a]

38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

We see John 3:16 just about everywhere.  Naturally no one reads on to John 3:17.

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

How does that fit into Chick-fil-a’s manifesto?  Yeah, not at all.  Who’s your bible scholar now bitches?

For all of you old testament bible thumpers…John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

So when a bunch of hateful zealots start quoting Leviticus and the old testament, remind them that it also says things like Leviticus 19:28

28 Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.

The old testament is full of stuff that doesn’t apply to our life at all.  Do you think Dan Cathy and his ilk don’t eat popcorn shrimp?  Seriously, they live in the South.  Liviticus 11:9-12

“‘Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams you may eat any that have fins and scales. 10 But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales—whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water—you are to regard as unclean. 11 And since you are to regard them as unclean, you must not eat their meat; you must regard their carcasses as unclean. 12 Anything living in the water that does not have fins and scales is to be regarded as unclean by you.

Once again here we are.  We got here with George Bush invoking his Bibical bullshit when he illegally invaded Iraq.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

No law respecting an establishment of religion.

No law respecting an establishment of religion.

No.  Law.

No.

That means you can’t use Christianity to run this country any more than you can use Islam or Santeria.  Can’t do it.  So stop it.  All of it.  It’s not about chicken.  It’s about a huge corporation forcing their religious beliefs on us because they have the money to influence society.  Go get your Chick-fil-a sandwich.  Order a side of hate with it.  And as The Brother said yesterday, you can use the moist towelette to wipe the blood off your hands.
