On Oozing Stupidity

I ooze stupidity daily because it just plain feels good – it hasn’t made me blind or given me the equivalent of reefer madness so I see absolutely no reason to stop.  If it is bad, why does it feel so good?


There are people that say “things” in certain ways that imply certain “things” loudly and clearly.  Last night Soylent linked to Grist.org where they implied that Japan’s earthquake was caused by thinning of the polar ice-caps.  These coy statements are the framework that eco-terrorists hang much of their arguments on and have some very recognizable features:

  • They highlight something emotional, which may be a real disaster or accident
  • They reference statements that spring off of the emotion
  • The statement is dressed up to look like a point that they are trying to argue, but…
  • The statement is also crafted or presented in such a way that it can be disowned immediately

Here’s an example of something worthy of being disowned very quickly (and they did).

“When the ice is lost, the earth’s crust bounces back up again and that triggers earthquakes, which trigger submarine landslides, which cause tsunamis,” Bill McGuire, professor at University College London, told Reuters.

Melting ice masses change the pressures on the underlying earth, which can lead to earthquakes and tsunamis, but that’s just the beginning. Rising seas also change the balance of mass across earth’s surface, putting new strain on old earthquake faults, and may have been partly to blame for the devastating 2004 tsunami that struck Southeast Asia, according to experts from the China Meteorological Administration.

Wow… got that?  Grist.org struck out that last part as soon as people cried BS.  In fact, I haven’t seen so many edits done to a blog in such a short amount of time since… well, ever.

Scientists have known for some time that climate change affects not just the atmosphere and the oceans but also the Earth’s crust. These effects are not widely understood by the public.

“In the political community people are almost completely unaware of any geological aspects to climate change,” said McGuire.

Yeah, just last week a guy started up his snowblower, m’kay, and three sinkholes swallowed up a schoolbus, a schnauzer, and my neighbors back-yard toilet/planter.  You guys are just totally clueless about climate change and geology just like the political community {nods vigorously}.

Well, over on the youtube thing I was looking at video of Japan’s tsunami, where I found a cornucopia of idiocy.  We’re not talking about secretions of stupid-ooze, we’re talking about entire-bowel-moving excretions of stupidity.

we are all incredibly frightened here. this morning there is a tiny gang of analysts which have been with a college in nevada that have showed clearly the planet is definitely drawing near to its finish. this is truly beginning to seem sensible now. read the intimidating write-up@:[VTBBNews.us.mn]

“A tiny gang with a college in nevada”.  Seriously?  Wow, those are some heavy hitters there.  A Tiny Gang has had their hands in everything and A College in Nevada is where I got my mail-order PhD.  How about that?

21.12.2012 is not the end of the world, it is the end of the Atlantis experiment. So we are now at the end of something that went badly wrong. The world is now experiencing a complete shift, releasing negativity and pain (includling humans), hopefully after this date we will then be able to move forward into a new era x

Boy am I ever glad they let me know.


Speaking of liberals, ec0-terrorists and liberals are like liverwurst and mayo sandwiches, they just seem to go together… Oh, do stop looking like that, liverwurst and mayo on sourdough is good for you.

Over at Aardvarks and Asshats, Eddie von Bear has made some friends.  Now, Eddie and I say things in entirely different ways – for instance, I could never, and would never try (well, I did once) to emulate his style.  If you are up to what might be considered “vulgar” language in genteel company, here is the link.

Now, a fella named William J Hanchey III 2 (Good Lord, all that is a name?) is what you would consider to be a troll.  And he’s an erratic troll with friends who got riled up at EvB’s writing style and arguments.

There’s the part I can’t understand.  Why would you go to a “Rattlesnake and Squirrel Chili Cookoff” event if what you were really jonesing for was a “Strawberry-Kiwi Cheesecake Poetry Brunch”?

After making an argument (and I thought it was a very good argument, if I may say so, about the misconceptions liberals have about conservatism and philanthropy), WJH32 got rather upset.  To the point of saying that I, the Glorious Lemur King, could personally fellate him.  Well, I felt that his response was uncalled for.   Then he kind of rattled himself apart towards several other visitors to EvB’s blog, uttered insults and proto-threats, then basically started behaving like an irate 12-year old.

At some point in his blustering (before my second response) he uttered – and I kid you not and I quote:

Reagans fiscal Sanity? Before Bush left office reagan and the the two georges had the three biggest deficits in US History.  Reagan was awesome huh? He is also the one who trained the Mujahideen aka Taliban considered them to be no different than America’s Founding Fathers.  – A Troll named William J. Hanchey III 2

I admit I blinked three times slowly after reading that utterance, and then I responded.

To be perfectly clear, being quite heterosexual I have no desire or interest to fellate him so he’ll just have to go to bed all full of liberal angst and sexually flustered.

† Proof that I am Heterosexual:  Mrrreeeowwwrrr… Salma Hayek… you can’t fake that, sorry.

Update:  Soylent thought maybe I had best provide a picture of Salma as additional proof – ok, so here’s the secret handshake part of the heterosexual male club… the first time I ever “met” Salma.  I even have Tito and Tarantula’s Tarantism album because of her.

Oh hell… you need MORE proof, SG? Geez. Right around 3 minutes into it.

Over at Four Right Wing Wackos, there was this wonderful post by Ragin’ Dave. I’m putting it here but I strongly encourage you to go over there and window shop, browse, ask questions if good ones come up.

Read their stuff, then zip back up here to the top and read how the government measures unemployment that’ll *really* bake your noodle.  You’ll never trust a statistic about unemployment again.  Well, you shouldn’t anyway, beyond who is signed up for unemployment – and even that has “issues”.

Economics and stupidity

I was listening to the news the other day, and the reporter (from CNN, of course) was almost going into hysterics over the latest unemployment numbers. “AMERICAN UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT 5.5%! OHMYGODWEREALLGONNADIE! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!”First thought out of my head – Isn’t 5.5% about half as low as most of Europe?

Second thought out of my head – Why the increase when there haven’t been any major layoffs or other reductions in employment?


“It wasn’t Bush, it wasn’t greedy corporations, or free trade, or history’s most over-predicted recession. It was not the oil companies, income inequality, or the excesses of cowboy capitalism. None of these things caused the unemployment rate to jump a half a percentage point in one month. Ask yourself a few questions: Why did unemployment surge at a time when unemployment compensation claims are historically low? More to the point, how could unemployment spike this much without a coinciding spike in corporate lay-offs? The answer to all of these questions is same: because very few people lost jobs last month. This huge jump in the size of the unemployed comes from new entrants to the economy—hundreds of thousands of them. In short, well over 600,000 people who were not job seekers in April became job seekers in May. And who starts looking for work at the end of Spring? That’s right—students. Hundreds of thousands of students are looking for work right now, and they’re not finding it. Congress is to blame. Last year Congressional Democrats (along with some Stockholm-Syndromed Republicans) passed the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007, which started a phased hike of the minimum wage from $5.15 an hour to $7.25. Free market economists warned them that this would increase unemployment—that rapid increases in unemployment compensation hit teens and minorities the hardest. But the class-warriors are running the people’s house now, and they would hear none of that, so they took to the floor, let loose the dogs of demagoguery, and saddled America’s pizza parlors, municipal swimming pools, house painting businesses and lawn mowing services with a huge cost increase. Now, we see the perfectly logical outcome of wage controls—rising unemployment among the most economically vulnerable.” [my emphasis]

So, in short, what anyone with a brain predicted would happen if Congress dicked around with the minimum wage did indeed happen.

Congress should not be allowed to do a damn thing with the economy. Their collective knowledge of economics wouldn’t fill a shoe box.

Now, seein’ as how I grew up in the NorthWest and lived for a time just two cities away from Pasco (three cities are mushed into one, really – the Tri-Cities) I had to post this. I am of the opinion that you have to elect to be this stupid. It can come natural but those who are gifted practice diligently and aspire to things that the rest of us can only shudder at.

This, Gentle Reader, is the account of one of those people.

PASCO, Wash. — What happened to faking a cough?

Sheriff’s detectives in Washington state say a man had his friend shoot him in the shoulder so he wouldn’t have to go to work.

When he first spoke with deputies, Daniel Kuch told them he’d been the victim of a drive-by shooting while he was jogging Thursday.

But detectives told KONA radio that Kuch later acknowledged that he asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid a drug test.

The friend has been arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment. Kuch is expected to be charged with false reporting.

Detectives declined to say where Kuch works, or whether he still has a job. It wasn’t known if he had obtained a lawyer.

Ok, friends, wasn’t that fun! No, really, I guess it wasn’t but it’s fun to mock someone else for a change isn’t it?

Speaking of electing to be stupid – or is it “being elected to be stupid”? I present to you: Mackhack Amadgenjad… no… Moachmoog Agardencad… oh hell… the Iranian President:


Here he is pictured proudly saying “Iran is the number one power in the world“.


<crickets chirp>

the superpower

<crickets chirp disinterestedly>


<sound of miniature folding chair falling to the floor as the last cricket books out of there>

the superpower… we ARE… we ARE!

Sadly, most of the Iranian people are just plain ordinary people and one gets the impression they wish their president would close his mouth for a spell. You can read the sorry account of his drivel here: Amadinejad Drivel Here on Fox News

Next I’d like to direct you to a person who is a large presence (IMHO) in the blogworld and the latest post that quite well illustrates what we’ve all seen – yes, there is bias in media. Wait, I know, you’re all saying “We KNOW that, you dolt!” But here’s the fun part – when it is the media engaging in Liberal Cannibalism – eating their own! The Ace of Spades HQ illustrates it beautifully.

Before you go, here’s a little something to get the conspiracy-theory nuts whipped into a froth.
Jets, Fuel, and What Damage They Do to Targets
Note that it’s the fuel, not really the aircraft that does the share of the damage. An aircraft is strong, but not usually THAT strong. Just look at the video. Concreted is strongeder-er-er.

Enough – quit reading this blog and go enjoy this beautiful above-freezing Saturday.
