A Note From Berghdazi Land

A brief snippet from my son after NPR "reported" (as they claim to do) on the totally fraudulent, right-wing-created "controversy" of Berghdaziland.

As I recall it went something like this: "They're like Disney villains. They're clearly villains but no one sees them, until they turn into a dragon and have to be slain."

Unfortunately I did not convey how well he expressed. Carry a microphone at all times.



Dear Fuckwits At NPR...

 From NPR: Right = Left So Can't We All Get Along, No We Can't Because Of Those Crazy Liberals
All I can really be certain of is that NPR has become utterly worthless for political opinion. If you want to see a prime example of the 'media elites' who believe that the greatest failure of our current political system was to slash social spending and still believe that "the great middle of America wants compromise on taxes and deficits" (i.e. the completely uninformed) because cracked extremists are worried about global warming, nukes or whatever crazy stuff they dream up in their fevered liberal imaginations....look no further than

Rant #2: 
I left a comment on that page as well: "Demographic trends with a dressing of infuriating, false-equivalence blithering that a six-year old child could see through. And exactly why NPR is going the way of CNN. Of course, Global Warming, climate change, guns-actually-kill-you, and evolution are no longer facts, they are "controversies" that NPR dare not touch less it lose a pfennig of its funding. Which, in all likelihood, it is populated by the kind of inside-the-beltway/slash-the-deficit journalism that gave us two wars and two occupations and failed to noticed the build-up of the last 2 or 3 financial bubbles. (Last years report on the 'disability mafia' being another example.) Another example of the sorry state of this nation--the only way one can claim to be serious is to assume that the reactionaries have something to say. After being wrong about everything for the past 30 years.

Boys Will Be Boys

"Of course I had to take him out execution-style with two shots to the back of the head--his gayness was killing me! It was me or him--ask the teacher."

"[nodding] True, his eyeliner was just too provocative for this backwater white trash town."

((Some teachers need to be beaten with a sack of fucking oranges, you can put that in your anti-union pipe and smoke it.)

MUSINGS: But Seriously, What's One Innocent Life Here Or There When You're Packing FREEDOM?

A tool is an inanimate object animals use, like clubbing your enemy with a rock. A fist is not a tool, a finger is not a weapon, a hammer is a tool that can be used to create or destroy, but a gun can only destroy. (With the exception of the nail gun of course.) But how many innocents have to die so that an NRA member would change his mind? 10? 20? 1000? 10000? 100,000? 1 miillion? Is there any number that would change the Cult of the Gun? I doubt it.
