The Upsidedown World of Bush

6 03 2008

Firing attorneys for political reasons is okay. Going to war for no good reason is okay. Ignoring senate subpoenas is okay. Torturing is okay. Shredding the constitution and illegal spying on Americans without warrant is okay. Granting immunity for corporations who break the law and allowing companies to overcharge the government unchecked is okay. Why even shooting your friend in the face and then getting HIM to apologize for getting in the way is okay.

But damn it, plagiarism …PLAGIARISM… that crosses the line for this upstanding administration! According to the NY Times:

A longtime aide to President Bush who wrote occasional guest columns for his hometown newspaper resigned on Friday evening after admitting that he had repeatedly plagiarized from other writers. The White House called his actions unacceptable.

It’s unfuckingbelievable where their priorities are.

Perspective and scale

I think we can all use a little perspective from time to time.

Heterosexuality Questionnaire

6 03 2008

This questionnaire is for self-avowed heterosexuals only. If you are not openly heterosexual, pass it on to a friend who is. Please try to answer the questions as candidly as possible. Your responses will be held in strict confidence and you anonymity fully protected.

1. What do you think caused your heterosexuality?

2. When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?

3. Is it possible your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?

4. Could it be that your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex?

5. To whom have you disclosed your heterosexual tendencies? How did they react?

6. Why do heterosexuals feel compelled to seduce others into their lifestyle?

7. Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality? Can’t you just be what you are and keep it quiet?

8. Would you want your children to be heterosexual, knowing the problems they’d face?

9. With all the societal support for marriage, the divorce rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals?

10. Considering the menace of overpopulation, how could the human race survive if everyone were heterosexual?

11. Could you trust a heterosexual therapist to be objective? Don’t you fear s/he might be inclined to influence you in the direction of her/his learnings?

12. Heterosexuals are notorious for assigning themselves and one another rigid, stereotyped sex roles. Why must you cling to such unhealthy role-playing?

13. Why are heterosexuals so promiscuous?

14. There seem to be very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed that might enable you to change if you really want to. After all, you never deliberately chose to be heterosexual, did you? Have you considered aversion therapy or Heterosexuals Anonymous?

Feared are the Peace Makers

6 03 2008

In case any of you out there think that Christianity is benign these right wing nut jobs absolutely want to stir up trouble in the Middle East to bring about the end of times…no really. They’re not just delusional, they’re trying to end the world as we know it!


Christians fight for their freedom to repress every other religion

6 03 2008

When Christians are forced to abide by the secular laws this country was founded upon, the very laws that make freedom of religion possible, they whine that they are repressed. Apparently it’s only when they can monopolize and control what speech is allowed and what speech is blasphemy are they satisfied.

To the Christians who agree with this video, you’re either completely ignorant of the intention of 1st amendment or you’re a fool and a hypocrite.

You can visit the site to see the whole inane series here. Silly Christians.
