Here’s Your Cheese Sandwich With a Side of Stupid

Hot dogs and wieners

When the word ‘terrorism’ is used today, most people equate it with Muslim extremists, radical bombings and hijacked aircraft. But there’s another form of terrorism happening right here in America, and the perpetrators are out to destroy the very fiber of our Judeo-Christian heritage and U.S. Constitution. Welcome to the bloody LGBT battlefield where everyone is fair game in a relentless, multifaceted assault on our humanity.

Make no mistake about the LGBT intentions. No longer content to ‘fit in’ or simply be ‘accepted’ by others for living an odd lifestyle, today they are out to castrate the minds and hearts of others into supporting their deviant faith – or crush those who might oppose their ranting into oblivion. As per the LGBT website, their goal is “…to seek to change the hearts and minds of Americans to ‘equality’…” – unless you happen to be an American who doesn’t want to be brainwashed.

Santorum Is On Everyone’s Lips

rick-santorum-busy-fist

So what is ol’ man-on-dawg Frothy going to do, now that he is a blue-collar populist avoiding social issues? NOM’s Brian Brown has the exciting news!

I’m thrilled to announce that my good friend and stalwart marriage, family, and life champion, presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum will be speaking at this year’s March for Marriage on June 19th.

From his days in the Senate, through his Presidential campaigns, Senator Santorum has never hesitated to stand for marriage and make the argument that the social values of our nation are of primary importance to the well-being of our families and children.

As always, it sounds like as much fun as a sneeze during a piss:

Senator Santorum is a huge addition to our already incredible speaker list that includes Governor Mike Huckabee, Archbishop Salvatore Cordielone, New York State Senator Rev. Rubin Diaz, and the Heritage Foundation’s Jennifer Marshall and Ryan T. Anderson, among many others.

The NRA Has Weaponized The Stupid

An armed man and woman shouting about a “revolution” opened fire and killed two Las Vegas policemen who were eating lunch in a pizza parlor on Sunday, then fatally shot a civilian in a nearby Wal-Mart store before killing themselves, police said…

Moments later, the female suspect shot her accomplice to death, then took her own life, Gillespie told reporters at a late-afternoon news conference.

Police have not released much information about the couple, although they’re investigating their possible links to the white supremacist movement and the militia standoff at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch…

Sources said the shooters draped American Revolution-era Gadsden flags — bearing the slogan “Don’t tread on me” — on the victims’ bodies.

(Emphasis mine)

This is domestic terrorism. We can (and will) call it all sorts of euphemisms but it is terrorism. We’ve made it so easy for every two-bit crackpot listening to hate radio and fox news to grab a gun and go out in a blaze of glory for the cause that the many voices in their heads are telling them about.

So now the nuts are attacking police officers, so what will it take to get people organized to take on the NRA and the over-sized power that they are holding over our culture? Will the police departments across the country finally realize that the NRA is not their friend?

These mass shootings are happening at a frightening clip now, and are we becoming numb to them? It’s like water-torture: Isla Vista, Seattle, Las Vegas. Where will it be next this week because it will happen again before a week is over.

The NRA has created a monster and lost control of it (monster-makers always do).

(Raw Story; Las Vegas Review Journal has a very detailed report.)

This is how Wingnuttia rolls

The Finger

We’ll start the day with a story that illustrate the point that for Wingnuts, it’s not how you play the game that counts, it’s that you win at all costs:

Boy exorcist and noted volcano scholar Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law on Friday that kills a current lawsuit against 97 oil and gas companies that was filed by the New Orleans regional levee board Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East. The new law could negatively affect state and government claims against BP over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Before everyone gets huffy and puffy let’s recall that politicians are hired to do their jobs by the corporations that represent them. They do not work for you and me. So while we might be outraged at Jindal’s actions, for BP (for instance) Jindal represents a good return on their relatively small investment.

This is a very bad deal for America and this is the same president who embraces never leaving anybody behind, but never picked up the phone during the night of the Benghazi attack to call for help in Libya and was virtually AWOL.

So I want to thank him for keeping Benghazi alive.

The Morning Quote

“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this, but 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”

Sportsball!

Football 2014

So what does it take to become a Superbowl City? I know I’ve always figured that the usual honorariums (bribes) and tributes (bribes) must be paid to host what is alleged to be the sportsball event of the year. Well, someone leaked the demands that the NFL made to Minneapolis before awarding them the 2018 Superbowl. Here’s a few that caught my attention:

  • Free service from local police to surveil counterfeit tickets and NFL merchandise
  • Waiving government licenses fees for courtesy cars and buses
  • A “clean zone” around the stadium restricting certain activities and temporarily suspending permits for those activities
  • 20 free billboards for the league in “NFL designated areas”
  • Mandating that team hotels televise the NFL network for a year before the Super Bowl, at no cost to the league
  • Installing ATMs that accept NFL preferred credit cards in the stadium, and covering and removing machines that compete with the NFL’s credit card partners

There’s nothing that says the published list is exhaustive or that Minneapolis agreed to all the demands, but you get the idea that the NFL is shaking the citizens down pretty hard. These all seem especially money-grubbing and would impact “The Invisible Hand” pretty sharply.

The Sunday Talkies is posted at Crooks and Liars, and I must note that NBC has finally found the winning formula for getting out of last place: pre-empt Dancing With The Gregory with any sporting event, anywhere in the world. Today, it is pre-empted by The French Open.
