Harsh Language and Namecalling

Foreword… I am not going to engage in harsh language and namecalling.  For instance, never in this post will you hear me refer to “crotch-sniffing moonbats”, “drooling misanthropes”, or “whinging libtards”.  I just won’t do it, because I’m taking the high road today.

Neck-date:  Ow.  Still.  Some improvement on the right side.  Left, not so, but it is only two weeks now.  Must have patience – that’s what I keep telling myself. Hastur is on the rampage,  Cthugha is being painfully obnoxious,  and Nyogtha screams when I touch him.   Cthulhu actually is very quiet tonight unless I poke him (it) with a stick.

I am a huge fan of Jeremy Clarkson (Top Gear) and given that I think Globular Worming is a crock of steaming shite, I have to say that I’d support him if he got a bit steamy about this.  Dumping manure in someone’s driveway is pretty darned childish.

climate rushIf only they had watched him racing the Bugatti Veyron around this last week’s season end episode.  He doubled the CO2 output of Europe in a day.  I could only dream of achieving half of what he has when my career reaches it’s zenith.  The Veyron’s twin engines, 1000 bhp, ten radiators… I was drooling over that car.  And it was an incredibly sexy car, too.

Anyway, if Clarkson comes to the states I’ll hunt him down and force him to drink a beer and have some smoked pork.  And Hamster of the White Teeth and Capt. James Slow May would be invited by default.  We’ll burn some tires and run all the lawn mowers at once to drive the point home to the manure-toting eco-terrorists.

It’s going to mess up the ol’ pronoun lessons in english studies…

I don’t know where to start.  He’s TWELVE.  The teachers ordered all the students to suddenly start treating him as if he were a girl and he’s awaiting gender reassignment.  Did I mention he’s TWELVE?

(1) He’s too damn young, (2) The students at school are too young, and (3) What the hell did the supposed adults expect?   Call my words fair or not, there are certain realities that you can’t just wave away in this non-ideal world.  Geez.

Nancy Pelosi, one of the biggest offenders in being offensive lately (by being pushy as all hell) got all worked up.

“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”

I mean, can you believe the harshness?  Someone actually said “You lie!” to someone else.  Scared me silly.  Then I turned around, saw my shadow, and shat my pants, I did – I was that scared.

I’m having a really hard time connecting the whole Harvey Milk thing with disagreements about the political direction/future of our country – there just doesn’t seem to be a good solid analog there.

This is a common gameplay sequence among the party in the majority right now.  It starts with outright intimidation and minimalization, then goes to a more moderate tone in the sense of a well-reasoned carrot  provided with a well-implied ironwood stick, and then ends up with their secret weapon – accusations and insinuations.

Now by merely providing a dissenting view, it invites charges of racism and in the case of San Fran Nan, a playground tactic of convincing the teacher that so-and-so is a bully.

Texas Rep. Pete Sessions said:

“The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda,”

True bullies threaten and bluster, and then when those don’t work, they cry.  Nancy and crew fit that profile.

This has to be embarrassing to the big O.   House votes to defund ACORN.   Obammie crack (a)corn and I don’t care… Obammie crack (a)corn and I don’t care…

Actually I do care because it causes the left so much embarrassment.  And to think they (ACORN) were going to help fudge the census bureau figures for Obama, too.  What a loss for the democrats and their redistricting plans!

As to the crack corn reference… I heard it on Futurama way back when and have absolutely no idea what it is supposed to mean.  Not even a clue, but then again, neither does Cecil at The Straight Dope.  He gives it a decent effort though!
