If I don’t do it, you know somebody else will

During the week,  I collect all kind of crap to comment on each Sunday morning.  And then something happened and I’m up all Saturday night.  And not in a good way.  The Fitbit tells me how I slept, as if I didn’t know this time.  I didn’t actually fall into a real sleep until 3:50am.  It was a long night and I have a busy day.  But here we go on this week’s collection of crap.

First up, the absolute best thing on the interwebs.

This horse appears to be some sort of competition horse in a Spanish speaking country.  And Boss, well he is the boss.  I picked Beauregard based on his littermate’s relationship with a horse.  I said “whatever you did to get that” pointing at Nero, “that’s what I want”.  I had a reserve on the next littler but then Beauregard (then Max) came back as his owner was being shipped out to somewhere he couldn’t take him.

Unfortunately, there was a lot of bad on the interwebs.  Like NYPD killing a man who didn’t do anything.  At all.  I’m telling you the police are out of hand in this country.  And the privatization of the prison system is a very bad thing.

Let’s play a round of good cop bad cop.  This time the lady cop is the bad cop.  No probable cause lady.

Apparently there is a super secret homo death squad who worship Hitler and are coming to kill Christians.  Good thing we have the Gaily Grind who will keep us all updated when they finally locate the training facility.  I’m certain it is located next to Santa’s workshop and the Easter bunny’s hovel.  The thing is this asshat has people who listen to him and believe his bullshit.  Although I guess if you’re reading this you might believe my bullshit….

But at least my bullshit is the good shit.  I thought this study by the Southern Poverty Law Center was much more terrifying than imaginary homo death squads.

And just because.

And because Johnny Winter passed away last week… it’s long, just let it run you’ll thank me.

 

 

The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.

Well, we started off last week with the second dumbest decision of the current Supreme Court of the United States.  The dumbest decision was Citizens United and the dumbest of all time remains Dred Scott, although these guys are well on their way to a modern day Dred Scott decision.

These nincompoops are a product of the Great Communicator and the Bushes.  Elect morons to office and they pick morons for the court.  The biggest turd is Scalia, a turd that lies on the doorstep of the Right Wings Great White Hope, Reagan.

SOME HOW, in this country, your religious beliefs now allow you to discriminate against women.  That, friends, is utter bullshit.  It’s utter bullshit for numerous reasons, but the most important reason is that the Bible never, ever, ever instructed it’s believers to be assholes.  Not once.  So this argument and the Catholic church, who with the unholy alliance with the Mormons brought us Prop 8 are now running the country.  Welcome to ‘Merika.

It’s interesting to me that the Catholics who currently sit on the SCOTUS have forgotten that a mere 50 years ago, it was a big question as to whether or not this country would elect that Irish Catholic guy from Massachusetts.  His father never could become President and that was the thing that guy wanted the most.  There is a  cost for forgetting history.  It usually presents itself in the form of extinction. Yet this Court got themselves out on a very slippery slope from which there is no retreat.  And the Catholic Church is spraying the hill down with oil.

My religion doesn’t allow for any science so I won’t provide for any medical insurance at all, nor will I provide sick time, we will just pray over the sick.  My religion says not to associate with gay people so we won’t hire any.  My religion says that anyone with AIDS should not have a job.  My religion says that women should serve their husbands so I won’t hire any.  My religion says women should obey their husbands and never leave the home for anything.  My religion says that people of color are an aberration and must be exterminated.  My religion says that Hitler was right  and all Jews must be killed.  Where the hell does it stop?

Well it appears to stop at my religion sacrifices chickens to the beat of the African drums.  My religion says I eat an ital diet and smoke the ganja.  My religion says I fast for Ramadan and pray five times a day.  That’s where it stops.  And that is utter bullshit.

  • “Approving some religious claims while deeming others unworthy of accommodation could be ‘perceived as favoring one religion over another,’ the very ‘risk the [Constitution’s] Establishment Clause was designed to preclude.” ~Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg

So get your chicken sacrificing, ganja smoking Allah praying ass in line and bow down to the Knights of Columbus, you’re new god.
