Sappy Holidays

It's that of year! We interrupt our regular programming of cynical, sarcastic, snark to bring you  sappy, maudlin, tear-jerky, feelgood stories. Start with a blind dog, lost, presumed dead ... but then at the last minute, his human found the kennel, where he was about to be euthanized,
Stevie Oedipus Wonder, home
uncertain the dog would be able to recognize her.  “All he had to do was hear my voice,” she said. “I stood at the entrance of the kennel building and called out ‘Stevie, Stevie.’ And he started barking all over the place.”


 To make a difference, all it takes is for one person to step up. Like the Turtle Lady.  One little thing, and five years later she finds out that
"his children have often reminded him of being careful with wildlife"
after she stood up to some bullies.  It would make your day to hear someone tell you that.   Never underestimate the effects our actions can have on others.

Here's a teacher that turned 1st graders from gender bullies into kids that say
"I want a baby Alive Doll and I don't care if it's for girls."

Not tearing up yet? Click on the picture and read the story behind it. It has warm fuzzies that will choke you, fer sure.

Non-discrimination between genders? HA! I give you non-discrimination between species!  How about a video?

It's a holiday, have a happee, mmmkay? 

Think good thoughts,


Something Christmasy

Since it's Axial Tiltmas, I'm reposting something I wrote last year. It turned out rather well, I thought.

the Bible before Solstice

'Twas around winter solstice, alone in the house
I was reading the Bible, as quiet as a mouse.
The stories were thrown in the book without care;
contradictions abounded, mistakes everywhere.

I could not understand, or believe what it said,
its tall tales of people come back from the dead;
original sin, which was such a bum rap,
blood sacrifice, curses, and other such crap.

When deep down inside I knew something's the matter
I sprang to the web to make sense of such chatter.
Away to the Google I flew like a flash,
to try and make out heads or tails of this trash.

The search engine gave me back millions of hits;
molesters, and con men, and other such shits.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but hundreds of gods from the earliest year.

With a little old edit, the story of Horus
I knew in a moment it must be the sou-rce.
More numerous than seagulls, gods and goddesses came,
and I whistled, and marveled, and called out their name;

Osiris! Adonis! Dionysus! Mithra!
There's Attis and Ishtar! And Baldr and Krishna!
To the land of the dead! Down to hell they all went,
to the underworld, after their lives were all spent.

Like fertility symbols these gods they all die,
and then get resurrected, back up in the sky.
So back up to heaven these deities flew,
to start new religions, and Jesus did too.

Right there in the gospels, just like you would guess,
a brand new Messiah turned up in this mess.
As I willingly tried to suspend disbelief
from the pages this Jesus guy came like a thief.

He was beat all to shit, from his head to his foot,
and put onto a cross just like Horus was put;
His birth in a manger, and marked by a star,
that's a detail he stole from the Goddess Ishtar.

His magic trick changing his water to wine,
was a ripoff of Bacchus who used to brew 'shine.
He claims to have brought people back from the dead,
that's just like the other gods—what they all said.

And in some of his stories he acts like a cad:
“Hate your mother and father! Don't bury your dad!”
Sends his guys to steal donkeys, and kills farmer's pigs,
and cusses a tree out for not giving figs.

He's a crazy old preacher, who just seems kind of silly
though I had to admit that his book was a dilly,
that tried hard to steal those old stories by stealth,
and I laughed when I read it, in spite of myself.

A shift of my eyes and a twist of my head,
to the headlines, told me I had nothing to dread:
all the Pope's rules have been shown not to work,
evangelicals picket, and act like a jerk;

they cry “war on Christmas” and make silly fusses,
when we put up billboards, or signs on our buses.
But to all the fanatics I give this epistle,
away from your church people fly like a missile,

and I have to exclaim, on this solsticey night,
that millions of us, without gods, are alright.



It's winter solstice today. Kind of hard to think about the cold dark days of winter giving way etc, when it's sunny 70 degrees. Anyway, Rachael .

Kind of neat.


Falling for this again?

According to all the US news[sic] we should all be deliriously dancing and singing. Why? Well, because

That's right, The War Is Over!  See, Look

Wait, what's that date? July 4th, 2009?  Oh, it's a joke.  HO HO HO, Just like 5/1/2003, when we Accomplished our Mission.  Or 8/19/2010, when we took all combat troops out. Or this time we took all our troops out--except for these guys.  No troops now, just 16,000 hired mercenaries with a license to kill.   HOORAY!!

All together now, Jingo Sells, Jingo Sells, Jingo all the way ...


Who would Jesus Knee?

While we're on the subject of quoteables, how about this one?

Guy is walking down the street, cop comes up and blindsides him with a knee to the ribcage.

Mary is Drowning

This is Full of Win!   Catholics, of course, are in an uproar. giggle.

"Jugend gegen AIDS" (Youth against AIDS), a Hamburg based youth organization, launched a campaign in support of the use of condoms and against Catholic policy targeting Mary, the mother of Jesus. In a video, a statute of Mary is taken hostage and placed in glass tank. A pipe is connected to the Virgin´s eye, and every time a Facebook user "likes" the campaign web site on the social media, a drop of water falls from Her eye, and increases the level of the water in the tank where the Virgin has been placed.

The campaign was designed by Stefan Strumbel, a German national. The leaders, for example Frederic Rupprecht and Fridtjof Vieth, of "Jugend gegen AIDS" said that the goal of the campaign is to see "how the water reaches the Virgin Mary´s neck" and that "only the Catholic Church can stop the Virgin to be drowned" by changing its policy towards the use of condoms. "Increase the pressure on the Catholic Church by increasing the water level", claims the advertisement.

Good on you, JGA.  Here's their Facebook page, where you can drop in on Mary.  


Tu Kyoot!

From Buzzfeed

"China Airlines is a proud corporate sponsor of the panda snactuary at Cheng Du and was happy to help out recently with the transfer of a young panda cub to a zoo in the United States of America.
After extensive consultation with the Sanctury's veterinary staff it was concluded that the importance of the panda cub precluded it from traveling in the hold of the aircraft, where attending to its needs would be difficult. Thus China Airlines agreed to donate seats in its Business Traveler First cabin for the panda cub named Squee Squee and his carer, Fu Jiang Lang, seen here sitting in the window seat."


Days of Infamy

71 years ago today, a day "that will live in infamy" and launched a war.We won that war.

23 years ago today, a day that may or may not be remembered. 

We're still fighting that war.


Update ...

This, and then ... awwww, fuck. 


This morning at 8:45am a peaceful Occupy Melbourne Protester was forcibly stripped of her protest costume and discarded on the ground in her underwear in public.

The individual in question was part of the Occupy Melbourne protest and was dressed in a protest costume made from a converted tent. The significance of the costume was to highlight restrictions placed on protesters staging a 24/7 protest in Flagstaff Gardens.

The protester was surrounded by at least 4 Melbourne City Council officers and 8 Victorian police officers. Her movement was restricted by the formation of officers surrounding her and she was subsequently restrained as officers proceeded to aggressively removing her costume.

At each stage she declared that she did not consent or feel comfortable with the actions of the council and police officers, stating that this was a sexual assault. “This is not consensual”, She said while the costume was being removed

Her requests and declarations were ignored as officers continued to rip and jostle her costume and person. A knife was requested and used by MCC Officers as the Protest Costume was cut from her body with blades. The remaining severed costume was violently torn from her body while the protester herself was choked, then discarded, semi-naked and crying on the ground as Vic police and MCC officers walked away with the costume.

No effort was made to assess her health or wellbeing after the incident nor conceal her disrobed body.

“How would you would feel if this was your daughter standing up for her civil and democratic rights?” asked media team member Sam Castro.

Quote of the Day

 Re the stupid 'personhood' bill in Virginia, commenter Laurie Tillett

If I’d wanted the government involved in my uterus, I would have fu@cked a Senator!!!

"All we are saying, is give tents a chance"

Definitely the coolest thing this week: Occupy Melbourne knows what to do when police came to take your  tents (but not your clothes). LULZ! 


Hippies, right again

Psilocybin cures PTSD? I could see that. Maybe even cancer? Here's a ray of common sense shining through all the murk and gloom in the news.
the first [study] since 1972 to explore a hallucinogen's therapeutic value.
It only took them 40 years to see the nose on their face. Now they suspect these drugs help with
post-traumatic stress disorder, drug or alcohol addiction, unremitting pain or depression and the existential anxiety of terminal illness.
Gosh, who knew? Well, not the govt., but a lot of people, like this commenter
I doubt if it is even possible to be depressed while on psilocybin
 And get this:
With her form of leukemia, those counts are expected to rise steadily as the disease progresses. But in June 2009, four months after her psilocybin session, they went down. Every three months since, they have retreated further,
It occurs to me that those old stoners were right about medical marijuana too. This research could eliminate a lot of needless misery:
expect the Department of Heightened Suffering to send Predator drones after these labs any day now. 



Little Oskar was born without any eyeballs. But he was lucky enough to find awesome people with love to give him--

It's that time of year again, so here's this.

Thanksgiving Unprayer

On this day,
when Earth tilts away from the Sun
and the world lies dormant,
it's appropriate to pause for a moment
and express appreciation for all that we have.

To express awe and reverence for the
nuclear furnace that formed this planet from interstellar dust,
the natural processes that organized its elements
into the carbon we are made of, and water,
that enables life to exist, to reproduce itself,
to be mobile, and conscious,
so we are able to appreciate our good fortune.

To thank our predecessors who
developed eyes to see the sunrise,
ears to hear music,
brains to understand
and a society to share all this.

Thank our fellow beings,
who share this earth
and who produce the oxygen we breathe,
the food we eat, the medicines we need,
and provide us with companionship.

Thank our ancestors who
freed us from superstition,
learned about the world
and passed on their knowledge
so that we enjoy the luxuries of our modern lives.

On a personal level, we thank
our parents for bringing us into this world,
and those who are here to share this day with us,
and not least, this fellow creature,
who gave up its life
so that we might continue on
in this great cycle we celebrate.


Tu much bad stuffs--need a happy

Who this guy is?  Scratch that, WHAT this guy is? 

Is racoon. Is hairless. Is rare mutation. 
This guy is  fine and healthy, and now gets to live in the Busch Sanctuary.  Yay.

He's cute. Well, in a kinda way.

Chemical Warfare

For years I've been harping on the militarization of our police forces, nice to see it's finally getting some attention, now that they're using pepper spray poison gas** on people.

Best of the lot, a very insightful piece by Alexis Madrigal, writing in The Atlantic

Why I Feel Bad for the Pepper-Spraying Policeman, Lt. John Pike

Also, Philip Zimbardo, the Lucifer Effect, pickle barrels, Stanford Prison Experiment, Milgram, yada yada

**"Pepper spray"--fuck whatever PR flack came up with that moniker,  it's OC Gas: it's banned for use in warfare, restricted all to hell in prisons, has killed dozens of people in the US, including one last month (courtesy of the NYPD, natch)Call it what it is--a chemical weapon, poison gas.  

Chart is from Deborah Blum's Speakeasy Science article, also required reading = everything you should know about OC gas.


Wasn't this fiction?

"always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. ...


Occupy Wall Street, Thursday.


Cain you believe this?

Is Mr. I-don't-need-to-know-anything really this stupid? He wants to know

"How do you say 'delicious' in Cuban?"

In Cuban? He doesn't even know Cuba is part of Latin America. Somebody needs to tell him to use Latin, he should say

Ego Asinus

Ge'ez, what a Morom.


Forgotten Heroes

For Veterans Day, let's remember and honor all those who gave their lives so that we might live.

During World War I, more American women died in childbirth than American men died in war.

Thank You All



That is a really cool boat. Not only that, it's Ireland, on the River Shannon. I want to be these people. Just watch.

Wow. Just, wow.


Satan Wins!!

College student Cristen Hemmins was kidnapped, raped and shot twice. That's not enough for heartless  sociopath Phil Bryant (R-United Methodists), who wants to force her to bear and raise her rapist's children.

 "Why can't you men have any sympathy for women like me?"
Chisten asks.
"Yeah, no shit why?"
I echo, and add
"Why is this evil prick Lt. governor of Mississippi instead of in an institution?
If  this slobberingly idiotic personhood bill passes, sez the evil prick,
ZOMG!!    Well, LOL! Guess what?

He did it!  Satan won! Yay, Go Satan!   

I start out my day with a smile, knowing that Al Queda of Mississippi lost, and go to pet my kitteh, Lucy Fur.   (^_^)


Olympic Pics

This is kind of neat.
In Occupy Olympia, (Washington's state capitol) the police helped set up the tents.

This is a neat one.

"To Protect and Serve"


the Rights of the Born

Just had a go at articulating my position on this whole issue of "Fertilized Eggs Are People just like corporations".

Miltie sez:

I do believe the vast majority of abortions are performed on women who just do not want their pregnancies to come to term because giving birth would just be inconvenient, and clash with their lifestyle.
And he says he is ready to listen. But of course he wasn't. Later he said this:

Am I the only one in this forum that is truly for freedom? As in the freedom of the unborn to life? Is a baby inside the womb a worthless jumble of cells, unworthy of life and the rights of those outside?

To which I say:

It's good to see that we both agree, as I too am totally for freedom. I will be moving in on Thursday.

For the first half year or so I will give you a debilitating, possibly fatal, physical condition that will leave lifelong changes to your body even without the likely major surgery; then I will demand your constant attention every waking moment for many years, without regard to how this will affect your health, earning power or quality of life.
You will of course provide me with adequate housing, food, clothing, education, medical care and other needs even if it drives you into bankruptcy, for the next eighteen years.

It's good to see that you are truly for freedom and recognize that those of us outside the womb are not just a worthless jumble of cells, unworthy of life and the rights of a blastocyst.

(BTW, my arrival will be Cash On Delivery to the tune of several thousand dollars. Have it ready.)


Help me out here

I don't watch tv. I quit altogether back when Murphy Brown was the top show, in the Pliocene or whenever.
Now, I see a lot of clips on Youtube so I can see what I'm [not] missing*, but seriously, WTF?
Is this a real TV broadcast on something that calls itself a News program? Really? It's like the Onion, right?

Tell me it is.

tell me it is.

*mostly it's people bitching about how terrible what they're watching is. Kind of like:
"It hurts SO BAD when I stab myself in the head!".

"Well then, why don't you STOP DOING it?"

"Whut?? ?? lol? huh? ?? "



------snip -----
I watched as the police pulled on their riot masks.
And then the ABC livefeed went dead.
My Twitter feed went crazy with reports of tear gas.
I refreshed the livefeed frantically. “This broadcast has ended,” it said.

ABC claimed that it ran out of fuel (see the caption under the image), so those watching quickly switched over to the CBS livestream. Then this happened:

To clarify: the Tweet on the right, offering CBS as an alternative, came seconds before the row of Tweets on the left. When the ABC livefeed went down, everyone watching switched.
Then the CBS feed turned into a picture of the Capitol.

To sum up: the only two mainstream media live-feeds switched off at precisely the same instant—the minute before fifteen police departments working together engulfed a peaceful group of protesters in tear gas.



It's too funny

This is the internet age, everything is different now, anybody can make a video, anybody can be famous, can RUN FOR PRESIDENT? 

I guess yeah that's kind of cool really. Everybody can post a video, they could say HEY LOOKIT ME, and everybody else could say "you're a fucken idiot" and vote for somebody else. If democracy is really a good idea, somebody whose plan wasn't OOOGABAGABOOGA would get elected president.

Realistically though, it would be Lady Gaga.

It's neat that now everybody has a voice. It's amazing though how many of those voices  are fucking batshit crazy.


This makes me happy

They just dismantled the last of these.  The B53  is   was America's biggest nuclear weapon, 600 times more powerful than Little Boy. Now there aren't any.   

Hey, it's a start.


Quote of the day

Chris Matthews, interviewing a Republican:

"does your party have any sympathy for anybody in any walk of life?"

LOL! If Obama promoted sex, the Tea Party would be celibate.


Hey, I'm Royalty

So I'm sitting against an oak tree, scribbling notes, got my bare feet nestled in leaf pack, contented. The wind blows up above and down comes a cascade of little flags. Suddenly, it's snowing leaves! I'm showered with Mother Nature's confetti, just like flower petals strewn in front of visiting royalty. I feel honored, and it's just so fucking PLEASANT!

By my front porch is a rose bush, bursting out with bright red fragrant flowers. Which is odd, because it bloomed last spring too, so what's it doing now in October?  Too much good stuff, it makes me want to sing ---

*On a side note, I love raking leaves.  They're gifts from the gods, freely given without concern for whether I have the soul to recognize their crucial role in sustaining my own very life. When I get a big pile of them I feel like Scrooge* with his money bin.

*Am I dating myself with that analogy? Might as well, nobody else is.


the Girl Effect

Here's a way cool ad from The Girl Effect.

One of my favorite statistics is on here:

When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 percent for a man.
See, that's how to solve the world's problems, right there. 


How about that.

Gee, it seems that not all rich people are assholes. Who'da thunk it? There's this kid, and Warren Buffet, and Tracey Lake, they even have a non-assholes club, wow.

It makes it so hard:  rich people who are decent, Muslims who are not terrorists, compassionate Christians, reasonable Republicans, politicians who are not crooks.  How can I divide the world into good guys and bad guys? How can I make life all simple

Way to go, lady.  


If that's what it takes ...

when i was in fifth grade, there was a girl in my class who had developed early. some days it was pretty obvious that she had a bra on. one day i was walking behind her in the hall and decided to snap her bra. she turned around and decked me. it was one of the best things that could have ever happened to me. have tried my best to not show disrespect for women or girls since.



This being Int'l Blashpemy Day and all, [well, close to it anyway] here is one of my Sacrillibs. Turned out better than the original.

In the Beginning

In the beginning, there was Shit. God said "Let there be crap!" and there was crap, and it was good. Then God divided the whiskey and made the babes.

He fucked the plants, then the sun, moon and skateboards to hang in the sky. On the fifth day, he made all the creatures of the babes and Muncie, Indiana.

On the sixth day, God made all the animals that live on the land, from the sucky buffalo to the awesome beetle. He also made the first vomit, Adam. He took Adam's ass and made him a wife, Lindsey Lohan. God told them not to eat from the Tree of Tits or surely they would suck.

Adam and Lindsey Lohan lived in the Garden of Boogaloo until a/an skunk convinced Lindsey Lohan to eat the rotten fruit and share with Adam. Right away they realized they were smelly and hid. When God found them, Adam said, "holy shit" God wasn't impressed. They didn't suck, but God was angry and sent them away from Boogaloo.

Eventually, they had two sons, Dumbass and Abel. Dumbass killed Abel and said, "Am I my brother's blowjob?"

The End

these are fun


Follow the money

 Question: Why is the NYPD arresting people?
Answer 1: for walking in the road against the police warnings.
(NY Times)
Answer 2: for following a police escort into a prearranged trap.
(Occupy Wall Street )
Hmmm, led or not led?  Here, trust your own lying eyes.

Why is the NYT whitewashing things?
  Gee, I don't know.

Who is that second author they patched in?
This guy--" police headquarters bureau chief"

 Ahhh, soooo. 


Sexual Pagans, Woot

LOL, get this: the Southern Baptist Convention—you know the guys who started their own church so they could own slaves—has an “Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission”. For more irony, their Ayatollah is called Dick Land. He was let out in public last weekend and babbled that

They're recruiting down in the grade school levels. They're recruiting people for homosexual clubs and it's really child abuse is what it is. You need to find out what's going on in your school.
Yep, it's readin', ritin', and rapin', that's what's going on in Dickland. 

You need to ask your children what's going on, you need to see what books their reading, you need to know what the teacher is talking about because, I'm telling you, they are trying to brainwash our children in the public schools.
And I'm telling you the mice on the far side of the moon are riding paisley chocolate bicycles.

It's the one sin that I know about that I find totally incomprehensible. But obviously some boys do find it comprehensible, because otherwise there wouldn’t be any homosexuality.
All lesbians would disappear if not for gay boys. We owe those gay boys a huge thanks. Thank you gay boys.

Even if you take out AIDS, male homosexuals die much earlier than heterosexual males do because of the inherently dangerous - health dangerous stuff that they engage in. But I don't think that's the big issue - I think that's a side issue. I think the real issue is they want to destroy marriage.
IOW, I just realized I'm going off on a tangent that undermines my point. Don't notice me withdraw my foot from my mouth and completely change the subject.

The alternative is not live and let live - it is the marginalization and the ostracizing of people of traditional faith.
Yeah, you just said them dying is not a big issue. Ostracizing the people who are killing them, now that's awful.

And it will be the full-blown paganization.
Pagans, woot! Respect for nature, pacifism, religious tolerance. Wait—all homosexuals are pagans, whut? And was 'full-blown' a Freudian slip?

You know, they have already started talking about polyamory and pedophilia. They're going to start talking now about lowering the age of consent - they are already starting to talk about it, saying who are we to deprive a child of his or her sexuality?
We talk about it mostly when you fundies get arrested for it, saying who are these guys to turn their children into underaged sex slaves? Your Mercator-sized projection doesn't quite cover your ass.

And we’re going to end up like Greece and Rome.
Ummm, I guess you didn't know it, but Rome converted to Christianity. 'Nuff said?

If this dam breaks, the tidal wave will be just an outright sexual paganization of society.
OOOH, not just pagans—sexy pagans. Fertility rites! Naked orgies, and beer volcanoes, bring it. Gays will be welcome, and it'll be a big improvement over going around all obsessed. repressed and depressed. It'll be fabulous. I can't wait.

Nothing in New York

How fucked up is it that I have to go to Iranian TV to find out about what's happening in New York City?

Four stories about it here, same number there was yesterday.

slow motion video of the macing   here

Some good professional type pictures here

Firedoglake is covering this really well

Official website of OCCUPY WALL STREET

NY Times headline: this  “appears to show”
who writes that shit? 


So OK Lance, who appears to be a dumbass.   He gets on skeptic blogs and says stupid shit.  Being interested in abnormal psych, I check out his blog. It's all christainy, with a tab that says I am an insane crazed biblethumping fundy  ministry/evangelism, but mostly it's a comic strip.  Sez he,

 The purpose is to entertain folks ... and ultimately to Glorify God in the process.
It's good he told me that, coz my first impression was that he was making fun of christains. It was also my second and  third impression before I figured it out.  See what you think.

The guy on the right is Art, who obviously is a complete fucking moron. The left guy is stuck in a cell with him and man, I sympathize: waterboarding, or a lockdown with a jackass who cites bible verses--tough choice, that one.

Bu bu but wait, good old Lance, he's trying to ....  oh fuck I don't know,  he seems to think portraying his hero as a collossal asshole will make us want to emulate the jerk.


Then I thought, if that's how he thinks, then it makes perfect sense to go on skeptic blogs and make yourself look like a clueless idiot, so that people will join you.  I guess. It's tough to try and follow the thought processes of a lower life form, like a sea urchin, or Lance. 

Lance, he even says "I have taught  "... 'Way of the Master' by Ray Comfort ..."  and doesn't even have enough sense to be embarrassed. That kind of thing should only be shared, on a dark lonesome beach, after too much Old Grandad, between you and your dog. 



Leaves are starting to fall. I love to rake leaves. When I get a big pile of them I feel like Scrooge McDuck in his money bin.  So do the fur people.

Kittehs ...

... those big noisy ones too ...



In the Catholic church they're always talking about saints. Well, here's what a real one looks like, right here.

And today's her birthday! So go over there and give her some love.


What We Could Do If Our Leaders Weren't Assholes

(*post stolen verbatim from Mad Mike's America)

Wildpoldsried, a small village in Germany produces 321% more energy than it needs sells it for $5.7 million

In the German state of Bavaria, in 1977 the village of Wildpoldsried (population 2,600) began a green initiative when the village council decided that it should build new industries, keep initiatives local, bring in new revenue, and create no debt.

Over the past 14 years, the community has equipped nine new community buildings with solar panels, built four biogas digesters (with a fifth in construction now) and installed seven windmills with two more on the way. In the village itself, 190 private households have solar panels while the district also benefits from three small hydro power plants, ecological flood control, and a natural waste water system.

All of these green systems means Wildpoldsried produces 321 percent more energy than it needs – and it’s generating $5.7 million in annual revenue by selling it back to the national grid. It is no surprise that small businesses have developed in the village specifically to provide services to the renewable energy installations.

The Wildpoldsried mission statement

Over the years the village’s green goals have been so successful that they have even crafted a mission statement — WIR–2020, Wildpoldsried Innovativ Richtungsweisend (Wildpoldsried Innovative Leadership). The village council hopes that it will inspire citizens to do their part for the environment and create green jobs and businesses for the local area.

As a result of the village’s success, Wildpoldsried has received numerous national and international awards for its conservation and renewable energy initiatives known as Klimaschutz (climate protection). The council even hosts tours for other village councils on how to start their own Klimaschutz program. The Mayor has even been doing global tours ever since the Fukushima disaster.

Wildpoldsried is a model for future developments around the world in communities where leaders and the people have the will.


Pope Lectures, God Smites

Noted crime boss and pedophile supporter Ratzinger gave a lecture in Madrid Saturday. God registered disapproval. First, 104 degree heat, escalating to storms and lightning bolts. The old pimp finally packed it in.

Also in Madrid, the Roman Catholic Crime syndicate set up these glory holes confessional booths for the flock to relieve themselves. Of their sins. 



Uncivilized skin care

People thought this ad was offensive. Gee, y'think?

Marketing wizards, with their finger on the pulse of popular culture. Geez. 


Cop Rape

A while back we saw how all you had to do to get raped in NYC was to call the cops.  Now you don't even have to do that, they just grab you off the street.



Dr. Loretta Mayer was studying diseases associated with menopause, and developed a drug that induced menopause in female lab mice by eliminating eggs in the ovaries without surgery. They dubbed it "mouseopause". That sounds funny, but it's really a huge thing.

It led to a version for rats, that are hell on rice fields in Indonesia, and then the director of the Navajo tribal animal shelter told her

 'If you could do for a dog what you do for a mouse, I wouldn't have to kill 400 animals a month,'

So Mayer developed a drug for female dogs that can be administered orally or by injection, and they're using now it in India to control feral dog populations. It and some other drugs like it are working their way through to FDA approval, and the Arizona state Legislature already altered their state's laws to allow them to be used. This can't come soon enough!


Deaf and Dumb

The "dumb" part is the attackers, and it's not an inability to speak, it's an inability to fucken think. Ignorancen times viciousnessn = these assholes.

"sign language is his only mode of communication", they say. Would they have said "Spanish is his only means of communication"? How about, "ASL is his only means of communication language". Would they say "Speaking is his only means of communication? It's fucking language, people!   There are people who speak other languages, believe it or not.

We were  chatting in the cafeteria  once, about some dogs that were outside, and a dimbulb arose hisself up from the table between us and the window, swaggered over to our table and sez he knowed we wuz a-talkin' him, cuz he done seed us a-pointin right at him.  Pointing is a pronoun in ASL, referring to the dog, in this case, but seeing as how the dog had more sense than him, we just told him to piss off. As if,  we had nothing better than him to talk about.

So I knew you could catch shit for using that language, but stabbed?   Fucking gang signs?

I'm speechless.

I am just SO SICK of hearing about this. Another right-wing Christian terrorist carries out another Terrorist Attack on American Soil, yeah, yeah. How many times does the mainstream media have to obsess over this story?
