Posts Tagged ‘Idiot’

Short mini-temp post for this morning only.

I read this and felt my IQ drop precipitously just from being exposed to it.

Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO): “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” (April 2, 2013, Denver Post forum)

If you voted for this Rep, then you should be ashamed.  You should question your ability to vote ever again.  The magnitudinous stupidity of your decision nearly tore the fabric of space and time.  A little bit of the universe’s poo came out in fear of the sheer depth of her cretinism.

Wow, a self-beating sea-lion.

There’s a joke in there somewhere.

****

Man proves conclusively to his girlfriend that he has no:

a)  Guts

b)  Balls

c)  Spine

d)  Steely eyes

e)  Firm handshake

f)  All of the above, and more

Way to go, sport – you reek of wildflowers and shame.  When you duck a ball and let your girlfriend get hit in the face with a baseball, then it is conclusive – you are either a sea cucumber or a terrestrial slugThe course of your life is plotted – a long meandering path downhill.

A kinder gentler co-worker said “It was probably instinctive.”  Yeah, but I know a lot of people that instinctively try to save the people they love.  Sorry, but yes, there comes a point at which we should judge people.  Not everyone gets a passing grade the first time, some re-take the test and pass and go on to excel, some fail.  It doesn’t bode well for this girl, however.  His failure when supposedly his Oxytocin levels are going to be at a lifetime high… ouch… because I doubt he can sucessfully reproduce if he’s even allowed to try.

Here we have the Happiest Petting Zoo in the World.  (no, not that kind of place)  Supposedly you can just walk up and touch the wild things with your bare hands because they are so well fed it overcomes all instincts to kill and maim tourists.

“the animals are just full. ‘We feed all the animals, especially the predators.’”

 (excuse me while I check my license to see if I was born yesterday)

 Nope.  Not born yesterday.

They feed the animals massive doses of valium and then give a ketamine chaser.   OR, they really do feed the animals well… with other visitors.

Horror vacui.

Note:  We are back from vacation – have been for a week.  I required a week to recover from my vacation.  Cruel Wife still extends her heartfelt thanks to all of you who expressed condolences on the passing of her mom. 

Relating to the title…

Obviously nature doesn’t abhor a vacuum or Joe Biden’s eardrums would have imploded and his eyeballs would have been sucked into his skull by now.

It’s not new news, but you can’t help but wince when you hear stuff like this:

KUDLOW: You know, what did [Biden] say? ‘Y’all going to be put back in chains’? That almost has racial overtones, Rudy Giuliani. What’s your take on that?

GIULIANI: Well, I think if it came from somebody serious maybe we’d get all excited about it. But the — I think the vice president of the United States has become a laugh line on late night television. I mean, he — I’ve never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid things. I mean, there’s a real fear if, God forbid, he ever had to be entrusted with the presidency, whether he really has the mental capacity to handle it. I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. And people think, ‘Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually he’s not very smart.

I mean this in all honesty when I say I would jump in front of a bullet if some nut tried to hurt Obama, purely out of fear that the next guy in line for President is Biden.  We can all complain about Obama as much as we like but he is actually less scary to me than the idea of President Biden.

Biden couldn’t win a debate against an banana slug, but he could say something just stupid enough to cause serious problems.

Let’s hope Romney/Ryan as a dynamic duo clinch the deal this November.  It’s closer than you think, folks.

Obama is hurting more than I could ever imagine if there’s talk like this:

Obama Has Plenty of Time to Drop Biden

In a veritable melange of topics tonight, Alert and Constant Reader mrmacs has forwarded the following link for steampunk corsetry.  Cruel Wife perused the site and said “That was very well done.  And for good prices, too.”

Trust me, that is one hell of an endorsement.

****

Now, I like David Wong (the writer) and mostly enjoyed John Dies at the End, and while part of his arguments on Cracked.com at the article below are total bullshit (global warming, the point of Frodo being an orphan is a stretch), the bulk of what he’s written is pretty true.  Think how much of your programming is pure Hollywood and stories.  He does a reasonable amount of thinking.  Here’s the one that made our blood run cold when I read the article to Cruel Wife:

So what if a lot of your interesting party trivia isn’t accurate?

What, you don’t think this same principle goes for the important stuff?

When you went on your first date, you had a picture in your mind of what that should look like — how both of you should behave, what type of activities couples do together, which one of you should pay, etc. Where did that picture come from? Did you take a dating class in elementary school? Did your parents sit you down and tell you? Bullshit. You saw it in a TV show, or a cartoon, a solid decade before you were even old enough to drive.

No, no one told us who got tied up on the first date, or the second, or the third… we just knew.
Honest.

Proof? Here’s proof.

Well, Santorum just managed to prove to me that he should never ever ever be allowed within 500 feet of the White House, much less be President.

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday said Republicans should give President Barack Obama another term if Santorum isn’t the GOP nominee… – CBSlocal.com

That shows a serious lack of good judgment.  Everybody says stupid things at times but some things are so stupid nobody says them, except for defective people.  This guy is a defective conservative.  My stupid thing was to think Santorum was a better choice than Romney.  He erased that.

NOBODY ranks below Obama at this point.  People better get it in their heads – you may not like Romney (I don’t, not at all) but I’ll willingly, gladly, and with a smile on my face pull the lever for him if he’s my only alternative to Obama.  Or I’ll do it with a grimace and pray for that meteor strike to wipe us all out.  Either way, no more Obama in the next term is a win-win.

Gingrich may be an ass but he’s got more on the ball, apparently, than Santorum.  He’s not a dumb ass.

Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama.  – The view as it is seen by the eye of Newt

That’s all I’ve got to say.

Not responding much to commenters lately – so sorry – very very busy and lots happening everywhere in life lately.  It’s been real.

Tomorrow… I post another rant about real racism.

What’s in a name? Whatever you want if you are Frank Zappa or this guy

Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop. Yes, that is the guy’s name.

I want to point something out.

Last week a teenage widow with an infant was told by the dispatcher that he could not tell her to shoot the intruders in her home but she needed to do what she needed to do to protect her child.

And the cops, being adults, said she was within the law. And they were right.

But then there is the judge that allowed “Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop” to change his name. You could argue that it is a free country and that as an adult he had the right… But most adults find this sort of a name to be indicative of a ridiculous time-wasting attention-getting cry of a man-child with separation-anxiety issues involving his unhealthy fixation on his third-grade teacher.

Calling bullshit on people and refusing to cave to their childish little bullshit excuses for being a wanker ought to be the norm, not the wild exception, even more so for judges.

I think everywhere you go they ought to just start banning people for using their damn cellphone where it is totally rude, but this is a start… a cellphone stack

It works like this: as you arrive, each person places their phone facedown in the center of the table. As the meal goes on, you’ll hear various texts and emails arriving… and you’ll do absolutely nothing. You’ll face temptation—maybe even a few involuntary reaches toward the middle of the table—but you’ll be bound by the single, all-important rule of the phone stack.
Whoever picks up their phone is footing the bill.

I have several co-workers, boss included, that don’t seem to understand that not only are the rest of us unimpressed by their self-importance-inflating toys, we’re kind of insulted that in spite of us having other things to do than be held captive in a stupid meeting ourselves, we’re sitting there while they conduct their more important business. So we sit and listen for when the next ringtone will disrupt 23 people’s meeting yet again.

To get the same interrupting BS at a restaurant? I do not pay good money for a table, food, and good service so I can be put on edge by someone else’s delusions of multitasking.

I think I like the idea of crushing the offender’s phone in a doorway better.

… from any number of sources.

I’m waiting for Pat Robertson to step up and announce that the oil spill is because of somebody’s sin or pact with the devil.  Give him time… bad will out.  He’ll swear that these people are being punished by God (hasn’t it been said that one ought not presume to know the mind of God?).  He’s safe from me because I absolutely cannot loathe the man more than I already do.

I’m not a duck squeezer or a tree hugger – I don’t hate oil, I don’t hate coal… I am pretty cool with all those sources but I still feel like you damn well better put resources in place to deal with these little fiascoes.

Click on it to embiggenify the image. If you dare.

I guess what bugs me is that this is shrimp spawning season.  They spawn in the delta and that is where the oil is headed.  So, unless shrimp like a little personal lubricant when they get frisky, this stuff is going to kill them, choke off oxygen, gum up gills… way to go fellas.

Update:  Someone riddle me this… why would Obama send SWAT teams out to oil wells…?  Unless he knew this was an eco-terrorism thing like ELF only gone much wronger.

Clarification:  Yes, I do believe Obama and the Eco-nuts gain from this but I can’t believe that they would sacrifice the environment on this scale to get what they wanted.  Also, even though the gov’t should have done better in responding with unstoppably quick concern – as it affects commerce in a HUGE way, I also think BP should have thought of worst-case things like “what do we do if a pipe can’t be shut off”?  They have oil well fires and they know how hard that is on land…  And, for the record, BP’s record is not spotless…

A lead-in to the breathing individual below…  New York is helping it’s heroin addled populace out using taxpayer dollarsMakin’ pamphlets for the readin’ users out there.  Bitchin, yo?   Next… Meth aids…

I’m not sure how, but there seems to be enough neural activity for her to breathe and move around.  Normally you’d think of breathing as autonomic but this one is a real mouth-breather and that takes special circumstances.

I want my nuggets.

She is of the ilk depicted at this post at W+K Studio… quiet those quivering quads.  The male equivalent is here… Gotta pee?

Drudge’s caption for this pic (below) is wrong, IMHO.

“Airports Abroad Ignore Obama Demands.”

Now, anyone who ignores Obama in my book is all right.  Since it is about terrorists tho, I suggest we do segregated airplanes – terrorist watch-list countries that bitch about discrimination (read: Nigeria) should fly their own planes in and out of the US, and if they deviate even a little bit, shoot them down.  I think I suggested that before but you just can’t stress this enough.

Pretty soon, people who are legit will stop visiting, or at least flying to and from these cockroach countries, and there’s a bit of economic leverage there that requires little effort on our part.

Boils down to this:  Terrorists choosing to kill Americans is about as damned discriminatory as you can get.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it, you cockroach terror-friendly countries.

So here’s that pic – the caption should read:

Geez, this out of a friggin’ mafia movie…  it’s like:

“You know, without me to protect you, who knows what kind of unfortunate thing might happen?  Then I’d feel bad that I wasn’t able to help you.”  Or, “You should think about what you want to do because I can’t guarantee what Guido here might do to your little buddy.”

Even more disturbing… “You do it like I asked you to or my daddy will talk to your daddy and then you’ll be sorry.”

Administration Warns of ‘Command-and-Control’ Regulation Over Emissions

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn’t move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a “command-and-control” role over the process in way[s] that could hurt business.

I’m bothered by the prospect of Congress getting involved in a ways that doesn’t hurt businesses.  That kind of action is rife with favors and corruption as a million little exceptions, loopholes, and incentives are dreamed up by the congress-critters.
Such as Hillary giving her favorite pollster $6M of your tax dollars to keep three employees.  Is it just me or is that suspiciously close to the amount of money she owed from her failed presidential bid?

Yesterday Harry Reid pretty much accused Republicans of being opponents of the civil rights and slavery abolition movements – which is fine except Republicans were the ones on the good-guy side. I include two excerpts from the Wall Street Journal for background.

In a remarkable statement on the Senate floor, Mr. Reid lambasted Republicans for wanting to “slow down” on health care. “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before? You’re right,” he said. “In this country there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough’ — about slavery. When women wanted to vote, [they said] ‘Slow down, there will be a better day to do that — the day isn’t quite right. – WSJ

It was Southern Dems that were the bad guys.

Historians also faulted Mr. Reid’s curious reference to the Senate civil rights debates of the 1960s. After all, it was Southern Democrats who mounted an 83-day filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill. The final vote to cut off debate saw 29 Senators in opposition, 80% of them Democrats. – WSJ

Or as Michelle Malkin points out:

It was the GOP that fought slavery and the Democrat Party that battled to preserve it.

It’s the Democrat Party, not the GOP, that boasts an ex-Klansman among its senior leaders.

But don’t confuse Harry Reid with history while he invokes slavery to lambaste the GOP for opposing the government-run health care takeover.

Amazingly, today Reid defended his remarks:

“At pivotal points in American history, the tactics of distortion and delay have certainly been present,” Reid said. “They’ve certainly been used to stop progress. That’s what we’re talking about here. That’s what’s happening here. It’s very clear. That’s the point I made — no more, no less. Anyone who willingly distorts my comments is only proving my point.”

Now why is it whenever someone disagrees with a liberal-minded person they always jump up and down and scream that the dissenting view is wrong merely for dissenting?

Are Democrats so thin-skinned and are their stances on issue so very flimsy that their debate tactics are the adult equivalent of “I know you are but what am I?”?

How can they continue to have views that clearly aren’t shared by a lot of voters?  It’s a form of psychosis, is what it is.

It’s plain sad, is what it is.

Tiger, Tiger, Tiger… This is what you get for playing in the rough.
