Female 1st Sgt gets ARCOM for complaining about an Internet chat room

Seriously, an Army 1st Sgt was so upset by an intertubes chat room that she ran to an officer to complain about her hurt feelings and got an Army Commendation Medal for it.

 

Now, if long ago when they were opening up the military to women (non WAVE/WAC edition), and I told someone that they would be handing out medals to women who run to an officer because they are upset about mean things being said to her, well, I would have been called all manner of names.

Jebus.

The Outrider saw it, he seems to think his job is to give agita.

Day 606 of the IRS scandal, with nobody having paid any price whatsoever.

Day 606. Think of that, nearly 20 months and our fine political betters have done not a fucking thing.

Some GOP congresscritters are saying they won’t vote for Boehner for leader.

I do love the quote about Boehner and McConnell saying they’ll work with Obama.

Obama, who has refused to work with anybody, was the cause of a huge electoral loss for his party and the prospective GOP “leadership” is already surrendering before they even take charge.

 

In attempting to write about the Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice incidents, the apparent futility of conservative blogging has once again caused me overwhelming despair.

As it concerns the death-by-cop incidents, the post-factual nature of our political discourse becomes palpable. “Hands up, don’t shoot!” is an utter fabrication, exposed as a lie by overwhelming physical evidence and the preponderance of eye-witness testimony, such that no charges were brought by a grand jury against the officer.

There’s much more room for concern in the Garner and Rice cases, but the public backlash in these three cases seems inversely proportionate to the evidence of police wrongdoing. (How many of you are going to Google “Tamir Rice” now?) But the incident drawing the most ire, the Michael Brown shooting, is the one with the least genuine merit – nil by my reckoning.

Presented with the futility of attempting to dislodge an erroneous belief from the public consciousness, one recalls the many other instances of valiant but Sisyphean work by conservative and libertarian bloggers. Whether it is the exposure of the IRS criminality, or the Gosnell little abortion shop of horrors, or the Jonathan Gruber recordings, nothing seems to stick or matter. Obama’s even back to funding ACORN as health insurance navigators.

I will from time to time find cause to write, but for now I expect the sparseness of my motivation to continue. In a world where facts don’t matter, there’s little reason to discuss facts.

Worried that somewhere, someone is having unapproved fun.

Case in point.

Early next year, the FDA is expected to finalize a new regulation intended to eradicat…trans fats, from our diets.

… threatens to eliminate the noble “sprinkle,” used to decorate holiday treats and donuts.

 

So no sprinkles for the kiddies.

 

When did it become the govt’s job to decide how I can defile my body?

I know, the War on (Some) Drugs.

Drugs without corporate backing (via bribing the asshole bureaucraps at the FDA)  are verboten.

Assholes, if I want sprinkles on my Big Gulp with extra salt it’s not the govt’s business.

So goes more of our freedom.

Wif boughs of horry.

Fa ra ra ra raaa, ra ra ra, raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Merry Christmas everybody.

To all Chinese restaurants in America serving people on Christmas Day, if you have a few people sing a couple choruses of “Deck the whores wif boughs of horry” I’d bet you’d get the best tips you’ve ever seen.

 

See, this is what you get when you leave the Christmas post to me.

Peak Ridiculosity?

If any of you read this blog, you’d remember the shrine at the site of the Obama’s first date.

Now, I thought that the most ridiculous thing Obama sycophants could do. ‘

I wuz wrong.

The White House legend that is Barack and Michelle Obama’s romance is heading to the screen. Southside With You, a drama in the vein of Before Sunrise, chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States of America wooed his future First Lady on an epic first date across Chicago’s South Side. Get On Up’s Tika Sumpter will play Michelle Obama (née Robinson), while the search is on to cast the young Barack.

It’s funny, and endy, how often this particular end of civilization surprises me.

Epic first date. Seroiusly? Epic first date.

Epic first date.

I know I harp on things sometimes, but EPIC FIRST DATE.

FrnakJ’s Harvey personality noticed it.

Epic.

First.

Date.

To wash the taste of that out of your mouth,  a little more Joe Cocker.

Wait, I mean

Important Question Update!!!!!!
Is anybody else creeped out by the commercial with the pregnant women dancing in PJs?
Not sure why but that creeps me out.

 

RIP Joe Cocker

Better a late memorial than none at all.

A classic “misheard lyrics” video. Though honestly I think a few of these might actually be correct. Also, I concur with the sentiment about probiotics.
