Arrogant Bacteria


Shoulda waited another week. No sooner had I  blogged this  than 
Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita (R-LaLaLand) gaped his word hole and this dribbled out

“I think it’s arrogant that we think as people that we can somehow change the climate of the whole earth

Poopgate?


Yeah, that's what they're calling it now. Just as I suspected, the whole thing was a crock of ... hmmm ... 
there's either a sack of shit lying in Texas or there's a lying sack of shit in Texas, maybe both.  The onliest person in the whole wide world who actually saw[sic] these sacks was Lt Gov. David Dewhurst,

I walked over to where they were screening and they were getting bottles out and smelling them, they were getting water bottles out and smelling and they had urine in it. And there were bags they had set aside and were going to put in the trash and throw it out, of feces. Just despicable. 

 Multiple choice fun!

(1) DD is a lying sack of shit

 (2) DD hallucinates things that don't exist

 (3) I want DD to represent me in government.



The whole thing is ridiculous but the funniest thing is what the head of the DPS said. With a straight face, apparently.

“Does anyone realistically believe we would fabricate evidence to support a political agenda?"

mmm,  dude, yeah.

Dream Houses

Where would you love to live? Is your dream house in the country, nestled comfortably into the landscape, with a pond and shade trees, looking natural and with some character? Like this one?

 Well fuck you, this place is an eyesore that's ruining the neighborhood--says the county, even if it is back in the woods where they need a drone flyover to see it.  Could it be they're pissed that somebody built it themselves, and only spent $24,000 so their rich developer buddies didn't make a fortune?

Be sure to watch the video, it's mad win.

OK, so the guy didn't get a permit. This place is world famous, as an example of what a house could and should be.  It should be designated a natural treasure, not torn down. They could just issue a variance, if they had souls. 

The neighbors pitched in (36,000+) with a petition to save it
http://naturalhomes.org/save-charlies-house.htm   More pictures and video, wow.


 
update: naturally, they lost.

Meanwhile, this house warranted (^_^) a SWAT team raid.  It might be out in the boonies, but there was 


"wood that is improperly stacked" so it's only right and proper to bring in the unmanned drones, helicopters, and automatic weapons.

Taken into custody were numerous tomato plants, with known links to Terra, and okra, and tomatillos suspected to have come over the Mexican border without papers.

Thank god big brother is Keeping Us Safe so we can all go live in little boxes like we're sposed to.

Well, this should be interesting


Awesome person and atheist activist Serah Blain has taken to the streets, literally. She will be living as a homeless person to raise money for a local Women's shelter. 

Awsomely, she will be blogging her experiences.  Awesomelier, her first posts are up.

I slept in the parking lot again last night, which went fairly well, with the exception of one of the police officers refusing to shake my hand when I introduced myself because of his concern about MRSA, TB, bed bugs, etc. It was an understandable concern, but also shocking to go from participating in a world where people seek my touch to a world where people avoid it. I can’t describe the feeling. Shame, maybe? I don’t know.

Raising the Flag


Growing up, I was told that WWII was fought to "make the world safe for democracy",


and that was iconized by in the picture of Ira and the boys raising the flag on Iwo.  It turned out to be more  demplutocracy, so I updated the photo.  You do recognize the flag of the World Bank, right?

Thriving


 Global warming doesn't exist, according to Fox News(sic), the ice caps are not melting, and the polar bears are thriving.   In the real world, these bears are starving to death because their world is literally melting out from under them.  Now see, conservatives want us all to thrive, it just depends on what you mean by "thriving".


 Here is your polar bear

Here is your polar bear on conservatism
Any Questions?

Missing the transgendered point


California passed a law to protect transgender students.  Most people are happy, but some are concerned about the whole "pervert-equality agenda" -- dogs using human bathrooms! urinals in the girl's room! rape epidemics! entire websites devoted to cellphone pics!  Wait, don't we already have those?

Anyway, conservatives made a simpleminded video mocking a straw version of the new law,  predictably ignoring violence and suicide in favor of what's really important---Peeping
 


and starring Mr "Hey-That's-What-I-Would-Do" (2:20 in the video).  There is so much wrong with this, I don't even.
But commenter  Zachary Bower does.

I recommend we stop teaching boys that it's normal to want to sneak into the girls' locker room to look at naked women, because that's disrespectful, invasive, really creepy, and ideally carries huge legal consequences.

Hi, Pocrisy


August 20, 2013.  On this day the US...

... invoked the Nuremburg Defense to absolve Bush, Cheney and their cronies for Murder and associated crimes.

... sentenced Bradley Manning to 35 years for reporting Murder in Progress.


 Hi Pocrisy, nice to see you running our country.

HS Kids FTW


Can we replace all our legislators with high school kids?  Sure a lot of teens are dipshits but there seems to be an endless stream of great ideas coming from articulate, creative, high schoolers. Meanwhile our lawmakers keep saying  and doing stupid shit 
*click those first links. not the last ones.

Case in point, here's a kid that has solved the problem of flashlights (aka storage containers for dead batteries) by just going ahead and inventing a flashlight that doesn't need any batteries.  Props.

What was that all about?


So I did a thing.  I made this cartoon that apparently I need to explain. Well see, global warming deniers crack me up--not funny crackups, but so-ridiculously-out-of-touch cracks.  Not much time goes by before some gasbag spouts that humans are far too puny to affect their surroundings 

... and THAR SHE BLOWS!  Our iconic blowhard,  who can't tell the difference between health care and prostitution, noted drug addict and sex tourist Rush Limbaugh, spouting to larboard.

And we are so impotent — omnipotent that we can destroy — we can’t even stop a rain shower, but we can destroy the climate.’ And how? With barbecue pits and automobiles, particularly SUVs. It’s absurd.
Almost as absurd as the bacteria two billion years ago when there was no oxygen, that developed photosynthesis so they could live on light and shit out oxygen as a waste product.

It's total pwnage that bozos like him are only alive to deny global warming because they are breathing shit, left here by microscopic cyanobacteria, bacteria that effectively wiped out all life on earth. Without barbecues or SUVs I might add.


*any physical resemblance between Rush and the two amoebic  blobs is purely coincidental
