No wonder it sucks.

The dust-up over a certain reality TV personality’s recent comments about sexual mores reminded me of something that has irritated me for some time about the Celebrate Diversity crowd, and a minor revelation I once had while watching a Will and Grace re-run.
But first, a minor detour. Back in 2002, not too long after college, I was living in the DC area working in what I would consider my first “real” job — something that didn’t involve bussing restaurant tables or making inordinate amounts of photocopies. Rather suddenly, I found myself in need of a new place to live. I ended up finding an ad for a cheap, metro-accessible place. The ad said “gay friendly”. Hmmm, not my ideal choice. But I needed new digs pronto, and it was cheap! As it turns out, it was three gay dudes living in a house, and I was the odd straight guy. Little wonder that I ended up watching a re-run of Will and Grace.
I’ve actually been too busy to birl the tubes, I was veeshired. I also changed the title, I always get that wrong.
Let’s start with some “Smirt Daplomacy” stuff.
Lebanese acting kinda scares as they laugh at Obama arming jihadis in Syria.
Great quote, you know they’re just shaking their heads and laughing/cringing.
The United States backed “the coalition’s vision for a tolerant, inclusive Syria that respects the rights of all Syrians.
After noting that the guy people trusted said, “I’m outta here”.
In Egypt, some more of that brillyents,
Islamic hard-liners stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo, turning it into torture chamber for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood
Now we see why Christians are now the most oppressed religion, Muslims have killed or ejected all the Jews, now they’re working on Christians.
So as Syria is a nightmare, Egypt is becoming a nightmare and the Palestinians continue their rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, the AP knows who’s to blame. Do you really need me to tell you?
This surprises me.
Recent photographs show workers in Saudi Arabia demolishing some of the oldest sections of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, London’s Independent reports.
Not even Press TV (official Iranian mouthpiece, like MSNBC but they show the other side sometimes) is covering it.
I’m not surprised the grievance mongers who bash the Israelis for planting olives on the 13th holiest site in Islam are quiet, but since it appears Syria is a heat-up of the war between Iran (Hezbollah, Assad) and Saudi Arabia (al Quaeda, various, other terrorists), I’d expect Iran to make some noises. Huh.
I did notice this when I clicked.
An Egyptian minister says direct flights in the form of charter flights will resume between Iran and Egypt within the coming weeks.
More jihadis for Egypt! Yay. Dudes probably kept blowing up when they had to make a connection. I know it usually pisses me off.
I didn’t have enough time for more overseas, I do have a bunch of hilarity in this one so just a couple, domestic, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! or at least GO TO THE GULAG!!!!
It seems awfully early in the election cycle to get people riled up on gay marriage, for both sides. I know the Supreme Court is taking it up, it’s going to be interesting.
From the I Used To Live There files, VA has a voter ID law. Racist! I mean, just cuz you need an ID for everything else it’s racist to require it for voting!
Via the Puppy Blender, Moe Lane notices Obama’s tool responding to a tweet from a fictitious congress-critter.
Kinda puts that threatening tweet at the Norks in perspective.
Cruz birthers are going to be a hoot. I mean, the mental contortions of making fun of Obama birthers while being a Cruz birther will be infuriatingly funny, which is not as good as funny but better than infuriating.
Via Jay we see unions acting like their fine, Wisconsin brothers. So some cops are letting good behavior prisoners out to do work, ala the guy from Shawshank, but he just has them do stuff around the town like painting the police station and shoveling walks. So the unions are all, “Hey! That’s union work!”, I guess their wives don’t make apple pies stuffed with hundred dollar bills.
But, as jay notes, there’s one problem.
The head of Arlington’s Housing Authority says, because of budget cuts, his agency would not have been able to hire the job out anyway.
Mudderpocking sonsomabatching iceholes.
Via the Jawas, Help a Brother Out. Dude’s selling his autographed picture of Jim Carrey to buy a gun. He’s up to $444 now, that’s pretty darn close to a Glock to scare good ole’ Jim. I’d love to see him get enough to buy the gun Mr Gabby Giffords was gonna buy. That would be funny.
Rush Limbaugh needs to get a fund going for buses to Mexico so the DHS can dump them and not pay for transportation back to Mexico. Airfare to the Europeans might be too expensive, but if we started a fund….
A little global warmmongering humor. Global worming is hitting Europe so hard,
Ornithologists have reported that migratory birds coming from the south have turned back.
I picture Daffy Duck saying, “Fuck that.”
The swallows will be back in Capistrano next year. And you know it’s going to be caused by Global Worming!
Russian scientists are predicting an ice age based on the Sun not doing what it’s supposed to be doing. I don’t know if I believe it, we just don’t have a long enough baseline for how the Sun is supposed to act, but…
That might be better than an asteroid. It would be a targeted disaster. Leftist nitwits hardest hit, people with brains enough to go south out of the cold would have a good chance (Hello from sunny Arizona!).
Then the Mexicans will suddenly think a wall is a great thing as Abrams and Bradleys go strolling across the Sonoran desert and the Rio Grande.
Last, and most freaky, via that guy who better hope he’s a lumberjack if he lives near the glaciers we get this bit of optic delusion.
I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.
A drudgetaposition, smart diplomacy edition
Turkey welcomes Israel apology for defending against terrorist flotilla!
Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.
Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.
Barbra Streisand to perform in Tel Aviv
Lebanon’s gov’t dissolves itself. I figure Hezbollah will move in. Oh well, they had their Cedar Revolution and they allowed Jew-hatred to fuck it up.
Via the Jawas, A look at Hezbollah’s politicking.
(Note: I have no idea where that is and I condemn myself for laughing every time I watch it)
Global worming attacks Ukraine!
Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.
I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.
A week or two ago I had a story about how
Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.
Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.
Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?
Headline of the op-ed.
Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy
In the body
believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.
Freedom Is Slavery!
I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.
I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though
Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.
Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.
Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.
The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty. One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?
Alexander (R-TN) Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO) Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA) Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS) Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN) Cornyn (R-TX)
Hatch (R-UT) Hoeven (R-ND)
Isakson (R-GA) Johanns (R-NE)
McConnell (R-KY) Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL) Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD) Wicker (R-MS)
Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.
Speaking of which…..
It would be funny if it weren’t true.
Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.
NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.
Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.
This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.
It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.
This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)
Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.
Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!
President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.
First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.
I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?
I cannot put anything, no matter how despicably murderous, past Mr Fast and Furious Benghazi.
Now, the hotassery, I believe this is the first actual sex show on DPUD!
Work that bitch!
Or is that Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Animal Sanctuary?
Update: I hate it when I forget something that I wanted to put in the top of the post.
Breitbart died 1 year ago today and the world is a worse place for it.
What the hell is going on out there? Seriously, things are not so much scary and endy as confusing and WE’RE ALL GONNA something.
The Senate on Thursday rejected rival proposals to stop the sequester, ensuring the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts will begin on Friday.
Seriously? There’s infighting in the Senate so they’re cutting spending? WTF? Those assholes only fight to raise spending, not cut it. How am I supposed to hate you assholes if you don’t stop cutting spending? (actually, as we all know, they’re not cutting spending, they’re cutting a minor part of the increase in spending in the important parts, but still)
Gateway Pundit says, “Awful” cuz Senate Dems haven’t passed any sequester bills. I’m not picking on him, cuz I doubt he’s the only one who feels that way, but why is that awful? The fewer spending bills Dems pass the happier I am.
This one is all about teh fucked up. Also via GP, apparently Boehner used the word “ass” and Reid has his petticoats in a bunch because the word “ass” reminds him of a whorehouse. First, Boehner wasn’t calling either Obama or Reid an ass so don’t get your hopes up, but more importantly, what exactly was Reid doing in a whorehouse that the word “Ass” reminds him of one?
Hey, DADT is over, I can ask.
At first this looks odd, but I would suggest it’s not. Income is down over 3% and spending is up .2%.
Hey, eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
This is the Yelling at the Puppyblender section of the post.
First, PB notices a story about gov’t workers who are involved in union stuff don’t actually do any gov’t work, they do union work. That’s how it works. I only know the Patent Office for sure, but you fill out your hours and you have “other time”, which means time not doing work on patents, it’s for training or helping your boss or something like that, but the union assholes get other time for doing union work. It’s fucking bullshit, but that’s the gov’t.
I love this one, PB links an article about how the Supreme Court is getting more powerful than Congress. Yawn, I’ve seen that story a bunch of times over the last 30 years. Why I’m linking is this.
In the Voting Rights Act case, justices are weighing the constitutionality of part of the law Congress reauthorized in 2006 that requires areas with a history of racial discrimination…(get jerked around V)
Who decides which areas have that history? You know they’re talking about them racist bastids in The South. I saw a documentary once on PBS in Boston. It was about the 50s when blacks were moving north to big cities to get jobs. They had some guy who was big in Boston gov’t (read: Mafioso, just like now) and his quote was, “We didn’t want the blacks mixing in so we decided to make sure they moved to Roxbury with the Jews.” To this day, Roxbury is black and West Roxbury is Jewish.
Dollars to doughnuts that Boston is not included in that Voting Rights Act. Cuz Boston isn’t racist. So long as black folks know their place.
Veeshir defends Obama! Mark your calendars, then have a shot. One of Obama’s illegal aliens releases released an illegal alien who then murdered. So why do I say I’m defending Obama? Because I’ve seen people try to tie it to his sequester warnings that he’s going to KILL US ALL!!!!, this is unrelated. It’s just standard, Obama trying to make America suck as much as he thinks it does.
This one is beautiful. The EU has legislated that young people will have jobs! Fucking brilliant! Why can’t our Congress here outlaw unemployment? Call your legislator, let’s get people working again!
This is the revolution part.
Secondly, Progressive Micro has gone out on a limb here. They make ground sensors, which are not something that most regular citizens would buy. They are generally something that sold to governments. Progressive Micro is putting themselves in the position where they might actually be losing business because of their stance.
I’m praising a company called “Progressive” something. Good for them.
I also really want to praise the guys who named this gun making company that is on the list.
Umbrella Corporation! That’s fucking awesome. It would be better if they made umbrellas, but I’ll take it. That’s almost as cool as the cul de sac where a buddy of mine lived, Kangaroo Court.
NYS pro-gun rally. Man oh man did NY pols (and I) underestimate their folks.
An aside, fuck you Dennis Rodman and ESPN for acting as if the Kim Jong KG is not a poofy-stomached maniac. Rodman tweeted something about hoping to see Gangnam style. Sigh, they only do that in the north when their guards shoot at their feet to get them to dance. I never liked Rodman, but I had to respect him, now I can’t even do that.
Now here’s Veeshir banging his chubby fist on his high chair and whining at the way the world is.
Chad and I had a deal about ‘standing’ and who has it. I understand he was right and I was wrong, so far as American jurisprudence has decided in this Brave New World, doesn’t mean I agree with it or fucking like it. Quite the fucking opposite in point of fact.
Take this, according to 31 USC § 1105, Obama has to submit a budget by March, 1 every year. He has only made that deadline once, and never submitted any budget that got one vote, so far as I know, but that’s not why I’m whining.
I’m whining because I should be able to sue him because I’m an American and his breaking of that law affects me personally.
But I don’t have standing. Why not? Because fuck me, that’s why.
Now, let’s have a little Viva Italia!
I have a buddy who lived in Italy for a few years, he was involved in some organic cooking school, and I asked him about good old Beppo Grillo, he of the Italian Vaffanculo Day Protests, he responded and I’ve put it below the fold, with his permission.
I asked him about the literal meaning of Vaffanculo.
Yes, it literally means: ‘ to go-do-make up the ass’. But, more idiomatically, ‘Fuck you up your ass!’
I’ve been using that word forever and knew what each part meant but never put it together. Harry Reid would love that word. Let’s send him to Italy!
As for the below, like most of my friends from upstate NY, he’s pretty lefty, so ignore the military industrial complex stuff.
Sonamabatch, I did that post yesterday and I just can’t get my Teh Funny back.
Let’s see if the FEOCE! can cheer me up.
Okay, now normally I would think is funny, but today I just cry for the youth. I don’t know anything about that site except they’re insane.
Four years later, as President Obama starts his second term as president, the country needs not just a mention of the need for more college graduates but also a comprehensive strategy for producing those college graduates — the kind of strategy that the administration has designed and executed for the education that comes before college.
Wait, what? You mean taking tasty food away from them? Because other than that and shooting down vouchers for poor blacks in DC, the only thing he’s done in lower education is make the special ed class feel like fucking geniuses.
Damn, that should have been fucking hilarious, I mean, that moh-ron thinks Obama gives shit one about anything but power for the gov’t and was actually happy about his SOTU, but yesterday just destroyed me for a day or so.
SMOD’s dry run went well, don’t you think?
meteorite plunged to earth in Russia’s Ural Mountains Friday, exploding into flames in a powerful blast that smashed windows and injured around 1,000 people.
Dam, even that can’t cheer me up.
Crap, more Islamists copying our God-President and firing generals before his putsch. Man that just sucks.
So why link it? Because I’m pissed off at Minitrue and these idjits piss me off.
his is yet another calculated maneuver by Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to ensure that the Turkish armed forces are never again able to illegally take over the government
Illegally? No, that’s their job whenever the jihadi assholes try to take over Turkey. So actually what Erdogan is doing is probably illegal as he wants Islamist assholes to take over and KILL US ALL!!!!!
Shit, people trying to KILL US ALL!!!, usually makes me laugh. This just sucks.
More on that “debate” we’re having over guns.
So in Minnesota they wanted to have a “conversation” on guns, so they called in some gun experts to discuss that assault weapon that’s terrorized so many soda cans, the Ruger 10/22.
n the video, DFL legislators simply arise and exit without explanation. They avoid learning details from the presentation about the very firearms they seek to legislate out of existence.
They don’t want a “conversation”, fuck people, doesn’t anybody pay any fucking attention?
No politicians want a “conversation” or “debate” on guns, most want to take them away from us and Rand Paul doesn’t. The only “debate’ is how much those assholes think they can get away with.
Dammit, still can’t find the funny.
This is Ta Nehisi Coates (wow, I’ve been seeing that name for years, I thought it was an Egyptian god) struggling with how people can lionize that murderous asshole out west.
Because he believed the right things about the right people. Geez, it’s not rocket science or brain surgery.
Dammit, I just keep blowing jokes. This is pissing me off. Is it 5 O’clock somewhere?
The Firearm Blog is freaking out because Amazon is going to stop selling something. They’re not sure what, but it’s related to guns so SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!!!
I checked Amazon’s page, unless they’ve changed something and are trying to keep it quiet, it hasn’t changed. 48 hour rule folks.
More bullshit ‘science‘.
