Update:  Below I have updated the nasty spiteful and soulless graphic I first did (the B&W one).  I have since added some festive glow bracelets and splashes of color

****

It’s quick, it’s dirty, it’s not done yet.  But here’s the work in progress.  I don’t like it, I must confess.  It lacks in many ways, but it’s still bound to piss someone off.

Here comes the update.  It is still weak but what the hell, eh?

Subtitled:  Bareback Afghans Gone Wild #37

Groundhogs and identity confusion.  No, the two aren’t related.  Oh I’m sure there’s some confused groundhogs out there, but not like these fellas.  Seems that there’s some Afghani men who think physical relationships with other men are good and women are stinky yucky – shunning them socially and sexually.

Remember what I’ve said in the past about how some cultures are wired to fail?  I could care less if a bunch of guys want to be gay and deny it.  But when you treat women like second or third class citizens and start involving kids… I have some serious issues with their ideas.

The report also detailed a disturbing practice in which older “men of status” keep young boys on hand for sexual relationships. One of the country’s favorite sayings, the report said, is “women are for children, boys are for pleasure.”

Borrowed from Amusing Bunni.

I mean, what the HELL is WRONG with you people???  I mean, this is the “next best thing” to NAMBLA.  Now there’s a group of fellas deserving of Hell.

Seriously, this is screwed up…

The U.S. army medic also told members of the research unit that she and her colleagues had to explain to a local man how to get his wife pregnant.

The report said: “When it was explained to him what was necessary, he reacted with disgust and asked, ‘How could one feel desire to be with a woman, who God has made unclean, when one could be with a man, who is clean? Surely this must be wrong.'”

Do ya THINK???

****

Here’s a re-posting of a funny ad that had me laughing about as hard as I did for the “Polar Bears Falling Out of the Sky” commercial.  Laughed so hard I shot kittens out my nose.

Nope.  I’m definitely not linking “gay” to “sheep-diddling”.  I do put child molesters in the same grouping but still below those who engage in carnal acts with sheep.  If ever there was a no-doubt argument/need for a .45ACP solution to vermin, child predators are it.

****

Groundhogs… now yes they do have some issues.   But PETA would have you believe that the little bugger Punxsutawny Phil has more issues than the rest of us, namely that he is captive and essentially tortured for ten minutes out of one day of 365 days in a year.  Probably he’s beaten hourly the other 364 days of the year, burned with cigarettes, and deprived of love and attention.

This is shocking stuff, I know… witness Enas Yorl’s response to the article… you can see that he very nearly dropped his knitting.

(Amusing Bunni - if you're around, this is for you as well as Enas)

PETA’s solution is a robot groundhog.

Riiiiight.

****

Which brings us… uh… where does it bring us?  Hell if I can remember.  I got up, took a break to go read with Cruel Wife before she went to sleep (she turns in before I do) and I plain fell asleep, clothes and all,  leaving this post unfinished.  Oopsie.

UPDATE – PETA “CLUB A SEAL CLUB”

This update from Laconical Pup:

On the podcast last Saturday, our friend NinthBatter gave us an on-scene report from the PETA event that took place earlier in the day. As you might expect, it was chaos — while PETA’s plan was to roll Alliance and attack a few Horde bad guys, lots of folks rolled Horde instead, and started up a guild called the “Seal Cub Clubbing Club.” Many, many seals died, as you can see in the few pictures below.

And perhaps most hilariously, people brought plenty of Great Feasts to lay out for the crowd, which means that right in all of the (supposedly) animal-saving action, there was plenty of roast pig to eat. Not exactly the best day for PETA, but what did they expect? They did, however, get quite a few media mentions, so it was probably mission accomplished over there anyway.”

Laconical Pup’s note: The “Great Feast” is an item that, when used, spawns a large platter on the ground with the classic roast pig with apple in mouth.  Players can click on the feast to eat it, regaining health and becoming slightly stronger for the next hour.  It looks like this:

There were screenshots of the event posted, but honestly unless you play WoW they won’t look like much.

Federal agency warns of radicals on right.

WHOA-HOOO-HO-HOA!!! Goddamn!

A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

How about that, boys and girls?  Now your federal gov’t is going to keep tabs on you based on the fact that you don’t agree with the concept of an all-powerful central government.

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

If that is your criteria, I guess you boys better put me on your @%*&#^ list, because despite the fact that I’m a peaceful law-abiding citizen, you are saying that my beliefs make me your target.

I am a Federalist, believing in the the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and as an additional contextual framework, the Federalist Papers, which hew to the very principles this country was originally founded on – if that makes me a target, damn glad to be here.

Other targeted people are probably anyone who attends a tea party.

No, surely not, right?

The White House has distanced itself from the analysis. When asked for comment on its contents, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said, “The President is focused not on politics but rather taking the steps necessary to protect all Americans from the threat of violence and terrorism regardless of its origins. He also believes those who serve represent the best of this country, and he will continue to ensure that our veterans receive the respect and benefits they have earned.”

All in the name of personal security, eh?

Welcome to the Democratic People’s Republic of America.

Oh my.  More vermin.  More Americans wary of tax man this year.

Sayeth the fox to the hens…

The Internal Revenue Service, which collects taxes in the United States, vowed to show its gentler side this year.

“We recognize the economic realities that are out there,” IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman told reporters. “We’re available to work with people.”

No, if you aren’t cutting unnecessary spending to the bone and beyond (like exorbitant Congressional perks) then you have  no idea what the realities are out there.

Let’s look at an example:

An elderly woman in Austin, Texas, who asked not to be named, said her $3,000 debt to the IRS grew to around $60,000 in taxes and penalties over 16 years despite the fact that she paid off the initial debt within six months.

The 61-year-old is disabled and suffers from multiple health problems. The IRS now takes $133 each month from her Social Security disability check.

The practice is part of the agency’s Federal Payment Levy Program, which allows up to 15 percent of any federal payments a delinquent taxpayer receives to go directly to the IRS until their overdue taxes are paid in full.

Grapes of Wrath…

Mexicans got upset about an ad showing their flag.  Boo hoo.  I don’t recall a huge hue and cry about Mexico’s flag being flown over the US’s upside down one a year or so ago.  (look it up, it was at a school here in the US, done by hispanic students)

“We have to tell these people that in Mexico we have a great deal of respect for our flag,” Zermeno said.

Note:  I had put an anti-troll disclaimer up at this very spot but then read McGoo’s response to Troll Tessa, and thought “Damn, the wind ‘neath my wings… I will persevere!  I will survive!

Clubbing virtual seals.  Oh.  My.  God.  This sounds like so much fun.  It almost makes me want to join up with Enas Yorl and hurt furry wittle things.

You getting this?  PETA is engaged in activist behavior against KILLING VIRTUAL SEALS IN A VIRTUAL UNIVERSE.  Pictured is a screenshot of one of these virtual World of Warcraft seals:

baby-seal

A co-worker whom I shall refer to as Laconical Pup had this to say about it:

Killing the seals yields Chilled Meat, which is used in a wide variety of foods.  And yes, those with the skinning profession can take skin dead seals, which can give them either leather or fur, either of which may be used (along with several other reagents) in the crafting of epic leather armor.

It’s also worth noting that these seals are level 68-69 and have around 7,500 hit points, and they respond aggressively to anyone that comes within their range.  If you don’t treat them like the dangerous predators they are, they’ll kill you.

Yep, that sure fits the image above, doesn’t it?

As I delved more into it over at IGN:

A post on the PETA website attempts to rally the PETA forces to protest the slaughter of seals in World of Warcraft. The protest is to take place on the WhisperWind realm in the Howling Fjord zone, where baby seals live on glaciers. The poster points out that you must be at least level 70 in order to participate in the campaign, which is set for Saturday, April 11, at 1:00 PM ET. Protest guy writes:

That’s right, gamers, get ready: This Saturday, World of Warcraft (WoW) players will have the opportunity to combat a team of four Horde seal killers. We need your help to stop them from bashing in the heads of any more seals!

Thrall refused to ban the slaughter of seals, despite multiple requests from the Alliance to do so, because Orgrimmar stands to make a large profit from the fur.

Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter. Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King.

Want to know who your real enemy is?  Guys like Juan Williams who want to make you helpless and feel smugly superior while arguing for it.

He thinks that by taking away guns it’ll somehow actually make them go away.  Idiot.

There’s no shortage of carbon-copies/xeroxes of him, either.

Suicide Victim Jumps, Lands On NYC Shopper

Sorry, but there is no such thing as a suicide victim.  Nor a suicide bomber.  There are “successful suicide pilgrim” and “killers”, though.

I’ve got two family members that committed suicide.  There’s no such thing as a suicide victim, sorry.  The kid she landed on is another story.

How disingenuous can you get?  Pretty darned, if you are Russia.  And Obamessiah is naive enough to buy it.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev admitted to President Obama during their summit meeting last week that American intelligence estimates … have been more accurate than Russia’s…

…  Moscow is now said to be open to “much more severe” punishment for Tehran if the regime there persists in enriching uranium into 2010.

Obameh.  Did he bow or didn’t he?  Meh.  I wanna know if Obama really gave Abdullah a Chiabama Pet™ as a greeting gift.

chiabamaNext on his list would probably be Green Slime™ or Pop Rocks™.  I notice Obama tends to give gifts that he himself enjoys and is less so interested in matching gifts to the person.

UPDATE:  PETA would probably see the cosmic joke in this post over at Brea Canyon Monument, a very enjoyable spot to browse if you like the world with a tilt.

I doubt “freakshowcasings” is really a word but it sounds to my ears enough like “sausage casings” that I’m willing to use it if it has any chance of pissing off a PETA member.  Freakshow, good word.  Showcase, good word.  So how can freakshowcasings be bad if it feels good and pisses PETA off?

I’m not going to let anyone go around abusing animals, because I think there’s very few things lower than a person who does that (perhaps syphilitic rats are lower, but even they are treatable).   This doesn’t mean that I’m gonna let some pasty-white anemic looking fruitcake tell me what I can and cannot eat.  Militant vegans just get under my skin.

I suggest y’all go and run right out to your local (insert_burger_joint_name_here) and order a triple-decker, double-cheese, extra mayo hamburger, sans vegetable of any kind.  And follow it up with jello made with real gelatin from animal parts.  Add an egg if they got ’em.  God meant us to eat animals.  We know that because they’re made out of meat.

Animal rights group turns its fire on celebrity meat-eaters

By Rachel Shields
Sunday, 29 June 2008

Animal rights protesters have launched a series of angry campaigns against A-list carnivores. They are shifting their focus from celebrities who wear fur to others who encourage the “exploitation” of animals by eating them. In its latest campaign, Peta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which became infamous for dousing fur-wearers in red paint – has launched an attack on the singer Jessica Simpson.

Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Real Girls Eat Meat”, believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.

Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: “Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn’t have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo.”

The animal rights group doctored a photo of Ms Simpson to read “Only Stupid Girls Eat Meat”, and listed “five reasons only stupid girls eat meat”.

In May the group condemned the British actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers for admitting that he had tried dog meat while in China.

The Peta attacks are seen as a sign of the radicalisation of some vegetarian groups. They claim eating meat causes environmental destruction, damages human health and contributes to global hunger, as well as inflicting suffering on billions of animals. (more…)

While I’m being offensive, this is a good time to give a plug to a bumper sticker company – with stickers like this, they deserve more traffic  (get it?  traffic?  Heh heh heh… oh I kill me…):

Ok, this has got to suck. And here we all thought they were just big chunks of metal. Civil War cannon-ball is was not dead.

We have had proof of alien life for years. No idea why the guys at Area 51 let these go other than the fact that they were getting so damned tiresome. No one can listen to pious freaks indefinitely. PETA rears it’s ugly head.

I posted this last week, but doggone it, no one even remarked upon this. Can you imagine how many men will be able to go on to have lucrative porn careers after a marital “spat”? When you can grow appendages back… They grew back an inch’s worth of a guy’s finger, folks! This is more important than the recipe for Toll-House cookies! Maybe.

And, here’s the fluff piece…

(Photo credit to Pop-PR – my views in no way represent his or vice-versa, he just used one of the gosh-darnedest cute puppy pics I’ve seen in a while) Cat’s are ok, but they absolutely refuse to be so “with you” that they are willing to play fetch on the freeway. Dogs can and do give you that kind of companionship – sheer blind devotion. Cats barf on things. Or in the case of this weekend, my wife’s cat peed in her shoes.
