"Stand down if you don't have ovaries." -- Florida Rep. Janet Long D-Tampa,
inviting the men who were voting to restrict abortion rights
to mind their
own f-ing businesss. The bill ultrasounds for women seeking abortions,
You see, the women of Florida are just as stupid as the women
They need some old, white Republican to make their reproductive
choices for them,
because they are too stupid to understand what's at stake.
"So having just seen him at the White House
Correspondents' Dinner, I had sorta forgotten how screamingly unfunny Jay
Leno really is. It was half, creaking, awful mother-in-law, lawyers-are-bad, Gee-ain't-Sarah-Palin-dumb
anti-humor schtick... A quarter of the way through, all I
could think was: "Is he being paid to take a dive?" Halfway through all I could think was:
"No, nobody could pretend to be this bad. Subtle as a steam hammer. Funny as
a sewer collapse. Our Crown Prince of American mass media comedy really is just plain
fucking dreadful." Je-sus. People really laugh at this boiled gray tripe?" -- driftglass,
He's right - Leno was worse thah I thought he'd be and I expected
him to stink.
You won't hear anyone whining about Jay's "cutting edge"
humor Saturday night.
Trust me, the only guy who enjoyed Leno's "humor" was Rich Little.
"If you like your jokes covered in bland gravy
with a side of telegraphed punchlines, then Jay Leno's White House Correspondents
Dinner was a feast..." -- Dan Abramson,
Subject: anti-choice legislation
and Benny the Rat
I would like you to read my comment in the St.
Petersburg times about the anti-choice legislation.
You should read the rest of the comments too.
Florida is like Oklahoma...with beaches!!!
Here it is:
Thanks, self-righteous xtians, for continuing
to try to impose YOUR belief system on those of us who want
nothing to do with it!!! So will_from_idiot_bigot_park
and "Big Brother" John 1984, why are you beholden
to the same views as pedophile pope Benny the
Rat? And why do people like you rail AGAINST "big government"
while constantly beating the drum for more intrusion
into everyone else's personal decicions?
Oh, right, you are teabagging gop zealots, no
less zealots than any Islamic terrorist.
"Let me be clear -- what I have said in the
past is, there is a difference between legal and illegal immigration. There's a difference between legal
and illegal. This is Allegra D -- or so, this is actually crack cocaine,
but I get it from a doctor, so it's OK --
Allegra. Drugs? Pot! Drugs! 'I have a problem with drugs!' No no no --
I have a problem with illegal drugs. Not prescription
drugs. I don't want to ban all drugs! Prescription drugs are good for you when used by prescription and
follow the advice of the doctor. Bad otherwise. Got it?" -- Glenn beck, trying to make
some kind of point,
Whatever he said, I'm sure the families of Heath Ledger, Anna
Nicole Smith and Corey Haim would agree.
What could possibly be dangerous about prescription drugs?
This week President Obama is going to pick the
next Supreme Court justice. People are talking about
what kind of a justice Obama should pick. I want
a justice that won't usurp the will of the voters and
appoint a president like the Supreme Court did
in Bush vs. Gore giving the presidency to the loser.
I want a justice that understands that We the
People does not mean We the Corporations and that
The People are superior to the corporate world.
I want a justice than understands that it is the right
of the people to spy on the government and not
the right of government to spy on The People.
I want a justice that gives a woman more rights
than they give her gun.
The current Supreme Court is not an institution
of justice but little more that a cesspool of right wing corruption.
In 2008 We the People rose up against the tyranny
of the Bush/Cheney administration to take America back,
leading the world back to recovery. But the fight
isn't over and we aren't going to let a bunch of Tea Baggers
stand in our way.
We say to you that our spirit is stronger and
cannot be broken
- you can not outlast us, and we will defeat
you. Reality is on our side.
Bart, I saw this covered on "Countdown" last night.
Pickles is now blaming ger accident on the stop
sign being to small! LOL!
I thought right wingers claimed they believed
in personal responsibility!
Wouldn't it be great if we could hear all the details about "an incident"
without knowing if the person involved was Democrat or Republican?
I don´t see the point of those readers who
condone anti-immigrant initiatives here,
by pointing out how harsh immigration laws are
In the past (say, 150 years ago), Mexico had much
softer immigration laws.
Then gave land grants to anyone who could put
$2 together and sign a paper.
Conditions were few: no slaves, and you had to
promise to learn Spanish after a certain period of time.
Then a bunch of slave barons, rogues, mobsters,
and religious fundamentalists, with the
covert support of the USA, sneaked into their
country and ended up grabbing half of it.
As a result, yes, Mexican immigration laws are
Waaaaay more so in paper than in real life, as
anyone who actually was in the country can vouch for.
For most offenses, including entering the country
illegally, they let you go with a fine and a slap in the wrist.
How does or compare with, or justifies,
barring heavily-accented teachers from Arizona classrooms,
or asking anyone who looks browny fot their papers?
Give me a break…
I hadn't planned to attend or play in this years $1,000 WSOP Tournament,
(May 29th-June 3?) mostly because
I can't afford it, but before I dismiss the idea altogether, I though
maybe I'd put the subject on the table
in case somebody out there was feeling extra generous and wanted to
read the 2010
WSOP Trip Report.
In poker, we call this a "two-outer" meaning I figure there's a 5% chance
of this working, but ...those things sometimes happen.
I would welcome any donors to show up at The Rio
and sip tequila shots with good Ol' Bart between games :)
"Before his health-care bill passed, Mr. Obama
sent a tough letter to health-insurance CEOs and then castigated them 22 times in
a follow-up prime-time televised speech. This is behavior worthy of a Third World dictator--not
the head of a vibrant democracy. This smacked of Chicago-style shake-down politics." -- Karl Rove, not spinning or anything,
"Yeah, dictators are known to rule their terrified
subjects with strongly-worded letters. What
is a defenseless CEO to do?" -- ojnabieoot, Link
"You even called drilling -- safe, environmentally-friendly
drilling offshore -- as raping the outer continental shelf. There -- with new technology, with
tiny footprints even on land, it is safe to drill and we need to do more
of that." -- the Publicity Whore in her
VP debate with Biden, Link
