  1. Brown ought to know.

  2. Invasion is not the act of someone who is strong. It is the act of someone who is weak

    i voted for it before i voted against it.

  3. The governor of New Mexico bit went right onto my facebook page. I can’t WAIT for someone to come along and defend this hairdresser after screaming about the law vetoed in Arizona.

  4. It might be nice to tell little Billy that he’s a bigger person than mean old Butch, who demanded Billy’s lunch money and dropped an Atomic Wedgie on him. None of that happened because little Billy was the stronger of the two. Butch still has the lunch money and Billy still has the waistband of his tighty whiteys wrapped around his cranium.

    You know what the only thing that rivals the horror of President Barack Obama is? The fact that we came thisclose to President John Kerry.

    Not only do we have children running the country, we have incredibly stupid children running the country.

    We’re in the best of hands, folks. The very best of hands.*

    *Whatever you do, don’t read any more of John F’ing Kerry’s Twitter feed.

  5. Of the many peculiar artifacts in our world, one of the most outstanding oddities is simply that Russia holds a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. But then, I guess Russia’s presence there at least has the virtue of giving the other seat holders something to have to deal with periodically.

  6. sarah..smile..where the fuck are you? you fuck

  7. PD!!!!

    Where ya been?

  8. Oh, and could ya bring back Lamont and The Rocketman too?

  9. a lot of people who cut hair aren’t big thinkers

    unless maybe if they’re african-american

    it’s a thing

    i know this partly from real life and partly from watching movies

  10. Mr. Buttons! asum ama lakum and et ceteras to you

    i hit you up on email this week i promise

  11. “Darden told a local news station that he cut the governor’s hair three times, but won’t do it again as long as she continues to oppose gay marriage.”

    So, if a cake baker that refuses a gay marriage cake contract is a bigot and ripe for a lawsuit
    Then
    A gay hair dresser that refuses a traditional Governor’s business is a ?

  12. Hypocrite?

    Like hell he refuses, Danger. He’s going to cut that hair and cut it real nice.

  13. gaysters be gangsters be commie pinko fags

  14. Pablo,

    F’n Kerry actually labels himself ‘”prodigal Senator” in his Twitter feed.

    From Merriam-Webster: 1 : characterized by profuse or wasteful expenditure

    Perfect.

  15. It’s now official: King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette set new record for vacay expenditures on taxpayer dime.

  16. Invasion is not the act of someone who is strong. It is the act of someone who is weak.

    No, I’m pretty sure invaders bring enough force with them to keep what they take.

  17. Dicentra,

    Guess the prodigal president tag would be even more applicable.

  18. di,

    Your new Aspie friend “steve” has posted another long-winded whine at David Thompson’s, in case you haven’t seen it.

    He really, really doesn’t get it.

  19. “It might be nice to tell little Billy that he’s a bigger person than mean old Butch, who demanded Billy’s lunch money and dropped an Atomic Wedgie on him. None of that happened because little Billy was the stronger of the two. Butch still has the lunch money and Billy still has the waistband of his tighty whiteys wrapped around his cranium.”

    The great thing about our educational system is that if Billy shows courage and knocks butch down and convinces Butch that it can be done again in front of people should he so desire, then mighty Butch will run to the teacher. The teacher who has done nothing about Butch, ever, and must be a huge asshole if indeed he or she is unaware of Butch’s regular activities, will have a cow because one of the students has shown themselves to be dangerous and unstable. Words like time-bomb will be used, and Billy’s Mom will have to take Billy to get a psychological evaluation to keep him in school.

    If Billy fights back, not only does he risk a beating, and enhanced picking-on, if he succeeds then he risks being labeled a psycho drove mad by those awful vidja games, and Heavy Metal D&D comic books with the zambies in ‘em.

    Whatever Billy does, he is viewed as the problem. The bullying he suffers was a feature, not a bug.

    It’s enough to make someone grow up as a suspicious, semi-nasty loner who spends the free time worrying that everyone is right to either fear or hate him just for existing.

    You throw “All penetration is rape” on top of that and it’s no wonder that Billy’s first impulse is to drive everyone away or at least test them with some anti-social crap when they step too close.

  20. What I’m saying is somebody trained Obama to be what he is. Somebody trained him to smugly say in an “auto-biography” that he didn’t make the college basketball team because his coach resented his “black” game. Sadly nobody trained him to not miss 7/10 easy free throw baskets in front of a camera. The dude is nothing but a puppet with a cold old communist hand up his backside. Putin knows how to handle such puppets. Guess why?

  21. di

    The Obamas deserve every penny they got for those vacations. Didn’t you know that Barry is personally responsible for the diversity, tolerance, cultural creativity of US as evidenced at the Oscars?

    All those Oscar winners & every writer, director and grip in Tinsel town did NOT build that.

  22. Your new Aspie friend “steve” has posted another long-winded whine at David Thompson’s, in case you haven’t seen it.

    After my apology & explanation for the chess analogy?

    Not interested. Having confessed to being well-acquainted with Not Getting It, because I work every day with differently brained programmers (who hold chess tournaments that I would never dare enter because I would be trounced before knowing what was happening), that should be sufficient to give anyone pause.

    It’s OK to be in over your head. It’s OK to have a brain that doesn’t grasp particular things very well.

    It’s not OK to refuse to become aware of it. Dr. Sheldon Cooper can be that way because otherwise it wrecks the comedy. “steve” is just annoying.

  23. F’n Kerry actually labels himself ‘”prodigal Senator” in his Twitter feed.

    Either he thinks it means “returned from disgrace and embraced with open arms” or he’s confused it with “prodigious”.

    I could buy either one.

  24. HA!

    Lefties conflicted by Ellen’s Oscar selfie becoming Most Retweeted Photo EVAR, beating the photo of FLOTUS/POTUS.

    They’re trying to go back and up the RT count of the Obama photo and are cursing Ellen, as if she were guilty of sassing the president.

  25. Fixed.

    Never mind.

    Next Oscars kerfuffle, Howard Fineman:

    #AcademyAwards show diversity, tolerance, cultural creativity of US in Obama Era. Hard power matters, per Putin, but Oscars r as powerful.

    So we can send the Ukraine a truckload of statuettes as armaments?

  26. Hollywood thought that ‘All’s Quiet on the Western Front’ would end war. Hollywood thinks it can banish the NRA to pariah status with a movie from a Quentin Tarratino producer. Hollywood thinks that 911 victims make good villains., that the Hobbit is three movies worth of stuff, and that we needed a Robocop remake.

    Hollywood is stupid and movie attendance is way down.

  27. Putin is playing Chess.

    Obama is playing “let’s all pretend that I know what the hell I’m doing because I killed Bin Laden, got reelected, and have a Nobel Peace price..”

  28. ****I lost my dad to Fox News: How a generation was captured by thrashing hysteria

    Old white people are drowning in despair and rage. Here’s how my father lost his mind — thanks to his cable diet

    Old, white, wrinkled and angry, they are slipping from polite society in alarming numbers. We’re losing much of a generation. They often sport hats or other clothing, some marking their status as veterans, Tea Partyers or “patriots” of some kind or another. They have yellow flags, bumper stickers and an unquenchable rage. They used to be the brave men and women who took on America’s challenges, tackling the ’60s, the Cold War and the Reagan years — but now many are terrified by the idea of slightly more affordable healthcare and a very moderate Democrat in the White House.

    We’re losing people like my father to the despair of Fox News, and it’s all by design.

    My dad is 67 years old, a full year younger than the average Fox viewer, who is 68, according to an analysis in New York magazine by columnist Frank Rich. I’ve read accounts of people my age — 40 or so — losing parents to cancer or Alzheimer’s, but just as big a tragedy are the crops of grandmothers and grandfathers debilitated by Fox News-induced hysteria.

    I enjoyed Fox News for many years, as a libertarian and frequent Republican voter. I used to share many, though not all, of my father’s values, but something happened over the past few years. As I drifted left, the white, Republican right veered into incalculable levels of conservative rage, arriving at their inevitable destination with the creation of the Tea Party movement.

    When I finally pulled the handle for Obama in 2012, my father could not believe how far I’d fallen. …

    [...]

    I’m overeducated in the humanities, so I’m an imperfect ambassador for science. I respect scholarship, peer review and the scientific method. When I tell my dad he should believe the experts in climate science, he gets really mad.
    “Global warming is your religion,” he says. Because I’m an atheist, calling me religious is the worst insult he can summon, so he uses it often.

    My father sincerely believes that science is a political plot, Christians are America’s most persecuted minority and Barack Obama is a full-blown communist. He supports the use of force without question, as long as it’s aimed at foreigners. He thinks liberals are all stupid, ignorant fucks who hate America.

    [...]

    My cohort, Generation X, is stuck between two generations of suffering Americans. The millennial generation is losing job opportunities and income as the nation stagnates. They put off marriage and buying homes. While white, Fox News-addicted baby boomers have lost their sense of hope. They’ve been passed over by shifting attitudes about gay marriage, the role of government and a host of issues. They still think of themselves as the “silent majority,” when in reality they are a wounded and thrashing legacy of white hegemony. My parents’ generation is becoming fragile antiques, relics by choice, reassured by Fox News that they are still the only voice that matters.

    I, and people like me, have managed to break the cycle of conservative red-and race-baiting. I’ve noticed similar attitude shifts among some of my close friends, who have likewise drifted from the televised rage of our fathers. I only wish I could do something to ease the anxiety of those I love, an emotion that is a cash cow for exploitative right-wing commentators. But I have no real solution, other than to turn off the television. Sadly, for some of the nation’s elderly, they seem to have no desire whatsoever to rethink the politics of fear and Fox News. It’s a criminal waste of retirement.

    ~ by Edwin Lyngar ~ ****

    I lost my mama to a lesbian seagull.

  29. “I’m overeducated in the humanities, so I’m an imperfect ambassador for science. I respect scholarship, peer review and the scientific method. ”

    But I respect hysteria and consensus more. Apply finagle constant to observations until the universe matches the theory.

  30. “He thinks liberals are all stupid, ignorant fucks who hate America.”

    Gee, I wonder why.

  31. “I, and people like me, have managed to break the cycle of conservative red-and race-baiting. I’ve noticed similar attitude shifts among some of my close friends, who have likewise drifted from the televised rage of our fathers. I only wish I could do something to ease the anxiety of those I love, an emotion that is a cash cow for exploitative right-wing commentators ”

    Yeah, once the cult has convinced you to separate you from your family where are you going to go if you leave the cult? I mean Gen X is all switching to your side right? and that’s good right? It’s changing the world and stuff right? And yet things are getting WORSE right? That’s sure weird isn’t it? It’s almost like what you know is…wrong somehow.

  32. Man when the backlash finally comes it’s going to be goddamned horrific. There’s going to be a lot of dumb little kids in 30 year old bodies hurling themselves out of windows when they realize the damage they’ve done to themselves, their country, and their families. And for what? Choom.

  33. “F’n Kerry actually labels himself ‘”prodigal Senator” in his Twitter feed. ”

    He spends excessively, and wastefully. I have no argument with his assessment.

  34. Jeff, I haven’t donated yet because you haven’t put up the bleg yet and because you previously said that the IRS was jumping on you for your paypal. Let us know what’s up with the donate button.

  35. Roots wins best picture. Gravity hardest hit.

    “I scrounged around for the next couple of years, trying to get the scam on the human race and just where the hell I fitted in – I discovered there were no openings.” – Steve McQueen

  36. So, if a cake baker that refuses a gay marriage cake contract is a bigot and ripe for a lawsuit
    Then
    A gay hair dresser that refuses a traditional Governor’s business is a ?

    A dangerous person to get anywhere near you if you are straight, given scissors, blades, and AIDS.

    But at least he won’t shit in anyone’s cake.

  37. Bummer

    Dude.

    Your new Aspie friend “steve” has posted another long-winded whine at David Thompson’s, in case you haven’t seen it.

    Aspie = Asperger’s?

    I’d take that over having to listen to steve.

    Speaking of which, I’m wondering if LBascom has quit us forever. I kind of miss the guy, if I weight his last few days of posting equally with the years of previous posts.

  38. As I drifted left, the white, Republican right veered into incalculable levels of conservative rage, arriving at their inevitable destination with the creation of the Tea Party movement.

    You see, son, Americans who are real Americans will always hate Marxist spinoffs and statist ultra-controllers.

    And that ‘drifted left’ you and millions other overly-pampered sons and daughters of stronger and wiser men and women did, and continue to do, without any forethought as to how it can be sustainable? There’s a sudden end coming soon to your leftist driftings, and I’m concerned that you and yours don’t have what it takes to even begin, much less survive, the cleanup.

  39. “People talk bullshit”

    –Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez

    I think that covers everything from spend-it-all Senators to know-it-all punk-asses.

  40. Ha! Lookit! ClownDisaster makes the same threats against US allies as he does against that non-strategic challenge nation Russia.

    *** When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House tomorrow, President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future — one of international isolation and demographic disaster – if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians. ***

    So, empty? Or not empty?

    (Yes, of course I’m referring to the contents of ClownDisaster’s head, not the threats. They’re too obviously empty.)

  41. Ha! Lookit! ClownDisaster makes the same threats against US allies as he does against that non-strategic challenge nation Russia.

    Me thinks one of these threats is much more real than the other.

  42. Not if the premisses are fantasies, it’s not. And what do we see?

  43. Obama’s reality fantasy-based foreign policy.

    If only we had Nichele Nichols here to tell him to get in the closet.

  44. Speaking of which, I’m wondering if LBascom has quit us forever.

    I hope not. I suspect he’s been going through a bad patch IRL. I’ve found that it helps to break old habits for a while when I start spreading negative shit into places I’ve always enjoyed; stay out for a while until I get back on an even keel.

    That way it’s still an enjoyable place when I go back.

  45. For recall: *** The same day AIPAC’s delegates meet with members of both houses of Congress, my new book, The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East will be released by Crown Forum, a division of Random House.

    In my book, I show that the demographic time bomb is a dud, and a malicious one at that.

    In 1997, the head of the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics Hassan Abu Libdeh told The New York Times that he was carrying out a census which would serve as a “civil intifada,” that is, as a statistical terror assault.

    And he was right. The goal of terrorism is to force a target population to take actions it otherwise would not have taken. The goal of statistical warfare is to manipulate numbers to coerce a target society into taking actions that it would otherwise not take.

    The Palestinian census claimed that by 2015, Arabs would be the majority west of the Jordan River. And once Jews were the minority, the Arabs could destroy Israel just by demanding the vote.

    The Clinton administration, the US Jewish leadership and the Israeli Left rushed to embrace the findings, even though they were totally inconsistent with annual Palestinian population surveys the Israeli military government conducted from 1967 through 1996.

    All crowed that true, the PLO still supports terrorism, but if Israel didn’t cough up the territories, it would be demographically overwhelmed.

    It took seven years until an independent group of Israeli and American researchers studied the PLO data and exposed the fraud at their foundation. The American- Israeli Demographic Research Group showed that the Palestinian data inflated the Arab population by a whopping 50 percent.

    The news for Israel has only gotten better in the intervening years. The Jewish fertility rate has increased as the Palestinian rates have collapsed along with those of the Muslim world as a whole. Israeli Jews now have higher fertility rates than the Arabs of Judea and Samaria, (3.04 vs. 2.91 children per woman). Israel’s immigration rate is high and rising. Palestinian emigration rates have skyrocketed over the past decade. ***

  46. There is one semblant truth ClownDisaster knows: repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it. His whole life indicates a proof of the notion.

  47. The only stoners holding CA back are the ones in office with a (D) after their names.

    And if they AREN’T stoned, what’s THEIR excuse for a lack of clear headedness?

    The stoners I know up here are hard workers.

  48. People who think they can tax and spend their way to economic prosperity have no credibility criticizing pot smokers for a lack of clarity.

  49. His whole life indicates a proof of the notion.

    I take it you mean both that he has repeated lies his whole life and gotten others to believe them and that the repetition of those lies has led him to truly believe everything that happens to come out of his mouth on any given day.

  50. He lies to himself and believes (he learned the lies he repeats to himself from others, q.e.d.). He lies in turn to others and they believe. His success, both with himself and with others, such as it is (my view? it isn’t), is the proof of the notion. And besides, it’s still working!

    Except, of course, that it isn’t. Which is where the recognition of fantasy part comes in.

  51. “President Obama’s foreign policy is based on fantasy

    No, more like a certain Science Fiction universe. Unfortunately for him the button not only was mislabeled but was hooked only to turn on das blinkenlights which fascinated him and made him think the policy was working.

  52. Just read that Lyngar piece – and the comments.
    Then I turned to today’s headlines about Ukraine.
    Then read about Oho’s interview on Israel.

    And I finally figured out why I’ve not read a novel lately: we are living in a work of fiction and each turn of the page brings us to places we’ve never imagined. Why would I want to read a book when I’m a character in one? Minor one, but still living it.

    Wonder how it turns out?

  53. “but now many are terrified by the idea of slightly more affordable the gubmint takeover of healthcare and a very moderate Marxism-marinated narcissistic Democrat in the White House.”

    FTFY.

    Also, “you sound angry.”

  54. I haven’t read the whole piece, but if you read the provided excerpts in Woody Allen’s voice, it’s unintentionally hilarious.

    So maybe it’s satire?

  55. Aspergers, for what it’s worth, is the other shoe that’s dropped. I now have two kids in therapy, although one of them doesn’t really know why yet.

    For fans of disaster-comes-in-threes, there’s another shoe hovering that we pray and pray isn’t going to fall. One of us is getting a biopsy.

    Even with all of that, though, life is good.

  56. So when we invaded Iraq, we were showing weakness?

    Kerry is a moron.

  57. Asperger’s is tough on the kids when they’re young because of the social interaction problems, but they get the last laugh when they rake in all that sweet IT dough.

  58. Ach, Slarti, things do come in threes.

    I’ll be praying for you.
