Toomey's fowl fable falls flat
by Jeff Hawkes

By way of YouTube, I've learned of Sen. Pat Toomey's fascination with "The Little Red Hen," a children's story revered for its moral about initiative and hard work.

In at least two speeches, Toomey has featured the tale and given it an anti-government twist. His latest was to conservatives in Washington, where Toomey drew chuckles as he made the farm animals villains, the Little Red Hen a victim and the barnyard a dystopian, disturbing place.

The fable as most of us know it is about the Little Red Hen deserving the fruits of her labor. She asks others to help her plant and harvest wheat and bake bread, but they decline. So when the bread is ready to eat, she keeps it for herself.

Kids see the basic fairness in the Little Red Hen's position, learning that if you don't help, you'll be left out. If children were asked what would happen the next time the hen asks for help, I bet most would say the animals would jump right in. Lesson learned.

But that's not Toomey's view. He doesn't see the animals as fallible yet correctable. No, they're creatures to be ridiculed.

He has the critters offer laughable excuses for their inaction: "I'd lose my welfare benefits," says the duck. "I'm a dropout," says the pig. "If I'm the only helper, that's discrimination," says the goose.

And when the hen says she'll eat the loaves herself, Toomey depicts an uprising. The animals yell obscenities and call her a "capitalist leech." Toomey even has a government agent call the hen greedy.

"But I earned the bread," Little Red Hen says.

"Exactly," says the agent. "That's the wonderful free-enterprise system. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our benevolent government protections, productive workers must divide their products with everyone else."

Then Toomey concludes: "The Little Red Hen's neighbors wondered why she never baked bread again."

The senator's point? He seems to be saying workers shouldn't have to share their earnings, and if the government makes them, they'll stop working. He also seems to be saying people needing assistance are loathsome and the government has no business looking out for them.

The Little Red Hen is Toomey's darling because she took an entrepreneurial risk and it worked out well for her.

In the real world, however, people sometimes face genuine crises, and they should feel no shame looking to the government for help. Consider how different Little Red Hen's story would be if her crop withered in a drought. Or what if she fell ill before the harvest? Would it be wrong for her to turn to food stamps until she recovered from her setbacks? Or would Toomey blame her and let her starve?

Toomey's version suffers from a vision deficit. The senator is too enraptured by the triumph of the individual to see that community matters, too.

I agree with Toomey that a healthy society creates an environment in which hard workers can achieve their dreams. But a healthy society should also assist dreamers who stumble.

In another famous fable, a proud, powerful lion becomes ensnared in a hunter's net. Do you remember who saves the day for the king of the jungle? It's a mouse that gnaws on the ropes, frees the lion and shows that even the meek can be heroic.

Maybe the senator could work that tale into his next speech.

Charlie Sheen's crackup continues apace.

Too much money and not enough brains are a bad combination, Chuckles. And Citizen Levine would be a dumbass in any religion. [Maybe "cultural heritage" would be a better choice than "religion". After all, one can't tell by his work whether "Chuck Lorre" has ever seen the inside of a synagogue.]

That being said, Sheen makes a lot of money for himself and everyone else involved with the show. Look for all these schmucks [racist.] to kiss and make up quickly.


From Yahoo! TV:

CBS has pulled the plug on "Two and a Half Men"... for now.

Just hours after Charlie Sheen went on a radio rampage, blasting his bosses at the television show, CBS issued a statement on behalf of the network and "...Men's" production company, announcing they were pulling the show from production of new episodes.

PLAY IT NOW: Charlie Sheen Takes Aim At His ‘Two And A Half Men’ Bosses

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season," CBS said in a statement late Thursday night.

Not long after CBS and Warner Bros. issued their statement, Sheen had some words of his own, specifically aimed at show creator Chuck Lorre.

"What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth," Sheen said in an open letter, posted on TMZ's website.

Sheen went even further, attacking Lorre, suggesting this is a battle and claiming the fans will support him.

"I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists," Sheen's statement continued. "I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.

"Remember these are my people ... not yours...we will continue on together," he added.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Sheen called into a nationally syndicated radio show on Thursday and unleashed a shocking rant in which he attacked Alcoholics Anonymous and his hit CBS show.

"I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show and all that and so I'm just sort of seeing if they're telling the truth or not," Charlie claimed to host Alex Jones in an interview for his radio show, "The Alex Jones Show," on Thursday, referring to his CBS bosses.

"Are they happy with the $5 billion they already made off me or do they think they can turn it into $10 [billion] in a couple more seasons?" Charlie continued. "I'm just saying, you know [the show] is a runaway freakin' juggernaut."

Charlie made it abundantly clear he doesn't believe the show can survive without him, telling Alex, "Watch your ratings, dudes. Watch your stupid ratings.

"Do what you've gotta do -- I'll go make movies with superstars and not work with idiots," he threatened.

The 45-year-old also blasted show creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a "turd" while claiming that he embarrassed Chuck "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process."

OBAMA DECREES ONE YEAR OLD MUST BE KILLED.

Oops. That's a headline from 2014.

Canadian family fights to move baby on life support to U.S.

(CNN) -- A Canadian family fighting to keep their 13-month-old son on a breathing tube says they have been denied a request to have him transferred to a hospital in Michigan.

Moe and Sana Maraachli refused to sign consent when Canadian health officials determined their son Joseph, who suffers from a progressive degenerative neurological disease and was in a persistent vegetative state, should be removed from life support. Joseph is being treated at the London Health Sciences Centre in Ontario.

The Maraachlis reached out to the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit in hopes of having their son transferred there for continued care.

Family spokesperson Sam Sansalone said the hospital initially agreed to accept the transfer. He said he has since received an email indicating the request has been denied.

Sansalone forwarded an email from the Detroit hospital that he said explains that after a review of Joseph's records by neurological and intensive care physicians, "we cannot offer Joseph anything that he has not been provided already during his current admission by his current clinical care team ... transfer to our facility will not provide him or the family any benefit."

Vickie Winn, a spokesperson from the Children's Hospital, confirmed Joseph is not a patient at the hospital but could not offer further comment, citing patient privacy laws.

Sansalone said the family is pursuing at least three other hospitals in other states.

Joseph was born on January 22, 2010, and his parents say they noticed something was wrong when he was around 3 months old.

"He couldn't eat by mouth. He wouldn't open his eyes. He didn't cry, and he couldn't breathe well," said his father in a phone conversation.

The family lives on the Canada-Michigan border, and they took Joseph to a Michigan hospital a few miles from Windsor, Ontario, in June. He was diagnosed with a metabolic brain disease.

"He saw a neurologist who told us our son would be OK, but may be developmentally delayed," said Maraachli. "Never did they say he would die."

After being treated in Michigan, Joseph returned to normal, the family said. After nearly a month of treatment, he started playing with his brother and began eating again.

He was fine until October, when he developed a fever. His father noticed rapid breathing. Maraachli says he rushed his son to an emergency room in Canada. Joseph was in respiratory distress. That hospital didn't have a pediatric emergency room, so the infant was moved to London Health Sciences Centre.

The family says the hospital has it wrong and that their son is not in a persistent vegetative state. Sansalone said they have noted experiences where the baby has responded to being tickled and has jolted when he felt discomfort with examinations or the feeding tubes. They say these are signs he might still have brain function.

However, Canadian health officials disagree. On February 17, they decided Joseph should be removed from life support. The family was given until February 21 to say their goodbyes and sign the consent, but they have yet to do so.

The Maraachlis are seeking a second opinion from what they consider to be an objective source that can review the more than 1,000 pages of Joseph's medical records and provide a better assessment of their son's treatment options.

If he is beyond hope, they want him to be able to receive a tracheotomy, where he can be transferred home and die in the care of family instead of in a hospital.

Experts say even if the family is granted this request, caring for a child in this condition is an arduous task.

Dr. David Casarett, director of research and evaluation at the University of Pennsylvania's Wissahickon Hospice, says patients at home with tracheotomies need monitoring to make sure the airway is clear of secretions, the skin is clean and dry and someone can make sure the incision at the tracheotomy site does not get infected.

"A child's care would be much more complex if a home ventilator is required, since the parents would need to manage the ventilator with the help of a nurse and respiratory therapist," he said.

The family plight has caught the attention of Bobby Schindler, the brother of Terri Schiavo. She was the woman whose family fought to have her sustained on a feeding tube for more than a decade and who became the centerpiece of a national right-to-die battle in the United States.

"There are some parallels," Schindler said. "The family's intention is to bring the baby home and show him the love and compassion that only families can really give a child, just like we did with my sister Terry," he says.

Schindler is joined by a coalition of advocates en route to Canada to help the Maraachlis with their case.

Suzanne Vitadamo, spokesperson for the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network and Terri's sister, issued the following statement:

"It is unacceptable for Canadian Health Allocation Officials and/or the Canadian Government to make decisions for Joseph that will end his life and deny the wishes of his loving parents.

"Every patient, regardless of age, has a right to proper and dignified health care. It is frightening to once again see government usurp the God-given rights of parents to love and care for their child at home, especially when the child is dying."

Fearful Leader buys some more sex pervert votes.

Obama Changes Course on Gay Marriage, Giving Progressives a Reason to Cheer
If Democrats still reeling from the Republican surge that remade Congress needed a reminder that President Obama hadn't abandoned his progressive agenda for the mushy center, he gave them a powerful one on Wednesday. In the face of one of the strongest conservative tides in modern American politics, Obama's announcement that he had reversed course on gay marriage rocked both sides of that contentious issue, with advocates and opponents alike expressing nothing short of shock at the news.

The left-fascist war against the rule of law continues apace.

State troopers sent to find Wisconsin Democrats
By TODD RICHMOND and SCOTT BAUER

From AP via Yahoo! News:

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin state troopers were dispatched Thursday to find at least one of the 14 Senate Democrats who have been on the run for eight days to delay a vote on Republican Gov. Scott Walker's proposal to strip collective bargaining rights from nearly all public employees.

Meanwhile, after more than 43 hours of debate, Democrats in the state assembly agreed to limit the number of remaining amendments and time spent on each in order to reach a vote on the union rights bill sometime later in the day.

The early morning action was designed to force a vote on Walker's bill that has made Wisconsin the focus of a multiple state effort to curb union rights.

Golly, there's no bias in that sentence, eh kiddies?

The Senate convened for long enough to make a call of the house, which allows for the sergeant at arms staff to go to missing lawmakers' homes with police. The lawmakers can't be arrested, but Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said he hoped the move would pressure them to return. He would not say how many Democrats were being targeted, but said it was more than one.

It is time for every state to enact laws to prevent this type of anti-democratic cowardice from happening in the future. The only sanction these cretinous clowns fear is the loss of their power, so any legislator who refuses to show up should be removed from office and a special election held as soon as possible.

"Every night we hear about some that are coming back home," Fitzgerald said.

But Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach, who was in the Chicago area, said all 14 senators remained outside of Wisconsin on Thursday morning and would not return until Walker was willing to compromise.

Fascism.

"It's not so much the Democrats holding things up, it's really a matter of Gov. Walker holding things up," Erpenbach said.

That's funny, Jonny.

Tens of thousands of people have protested the bill for nine straight days, with hundreds spending the night in sleeping bags on the hard marble floor of the Capitol as the debate was broadcast on monitors in the rotunda. Many still were sleeping when the deal to only debate 38 more amendments, for no more than 10 minutes each, was announced shortly after 6 a.m. The timing of the agreement means the vote could come as soon as noon Thursday.

"We will strongly make our points, but understand you are limiting the voice of the public as you do this," said Democratic state Rep. Mark Pocan of Madison. "You can't dictate democracy. You are limiting the people's voice with this agreement this morning."

Holy crap! Exactly who's trying to dictate to whom, you dic...tator??!!!

Democrats, who are in the minority, don't have the votes to stop the bill once the vote occurs.

Passage of the bill in the Assembly would be a major victory for Republicans and Walker, but the measure still must clear the Senate. Democrats there left town last week rather than vote on the bill, which has stymied efforts there to take it up.

Fascism.

The battle over labor rights has been heating up across the country, as new Republican majorities tackle budget woes in several states. The GOP efforts have sparked huge protests from unions and their supporters and led Democrats in Wisconsin and Indiana to flee their states to block measures.

"Flee"? Really? Try "conspire to nullify the results of an election". Robert Mugabe would be proud.

Republicans in Ohio offered a small concession Wednesday, saying they would support allowing unionized state workers to collectively bargain on wages — but not for benefits, sick time, vacation or other conditions. Wisconsin's proposal also would allow most public workers to collectively bargain only for wages.

In Ohio, Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus denied protests have dented the GOP's resolve, saying lawmakers decided to make the change after listening to hours of testimony. He said he still believes the bill's core purpose — reining in spending by allowing governments more flexibility in dealing with their workers — is intact.

Senate Democratic Leader Capri Cafaro called the changes "window dressing." She said the entire bill should be scrapped.

"We can't grow Ohio's economy by destroying jobs and attacking the middle class," Cafaro said. "Public employees in Ohio didn't cause our budget problems and they shouldn't be blamed for something that's not their fault."

You caused it you cow. Now it's time to clean up the mess you made.

Wisconsin Democrats have echoed Cafaro for days, but Walker has refused to waver.

Amen to that, brother.

Walker reiterated Wednesday that public workers must make concessions to avoid thousands of government layoffs as the state grapples with a $137 million shortfall in its current budget and a projected $3.6 billion hole in the next two-year budget.

The marathon session in the Assembly was grand political theater, with exhausted lawmakers limping around the chamber, rubbing their eyes and yawning as Wednesday night dragged on.

Around midnight, Rep. Dean Kaufert, R-Neenah, accused Democrats of putting on a show for the protesters. Democrats leapt up and started shouting.

"I'm sorry if democracy is a little inconvenient and you had to stay up two nights in a row," Pocan said. "Is this inconvenient? Hell, yeah! It's inconvenient. But we're going to be heard!"

Notice how the commie creeps insist they are the champions of democracy.

The Ohio and Wisconsin bills both would strip public workers at all levels of their right to collectively bargain benefits, sick time, vacations and other work conditions. Wisconsin's measure exempts local police, firefighters and the State Patrol and still lets workers collectively bargain their wages as long as they are below inflation. It also would require public workers to pay more toward their pensions and health insurance. Ohio's bill, until Wednesday, would have barred negotiations on wages.

Ohio's measure sits in a Senate committee. No vote has been scheduled on the plan, but thousands of protesters have gathered at the Statehouse to demonstrate, just as in Wisconsin.

In Indiana, Democrats successfully killed a Republican bill that would have prohibited union membership from being a condition of employment by leaving the state on Tuesday. They remained in Illinois in hopes of derailing other parts of Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels' agenda, including restrictions on teacher collective bargaining.

Fascism.

And in Oklahoma, a Republican-controlled state House committee on Wednesday narrowly approved legislation to repeal collective bargaining rights for municipal workers in that state's 13 largest cities.

Boehner to Obama: Call off DNC attacks in Wisconsin and lead


From ABC News:

Obama, DNC Fuel State Employee Protests

State employee protests in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana this week are being fomented by the national political establishment -- including President Obama and the Democratic National Committee -- who have directly interjected themselves into the state-level debates, Republican critics say.


From the Manchester Union Leader:

Pat Buchanan: In Wisconsin, Battle for America rages

The same column is also at Yahoo! News under the title Barack Hussein Alinsky.

Hee-hee.

As a large and furious demonstration was under way outside and inside the Capitol in Madison last week, Barack Obama invited in a TV camera crew from Milwaukee and proceeded to fan the flames.

Dropping the mask of The Great Compromiser, Obama reverted to his role as South Chicago community organizer, charging Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Legislature with an "assault on unions."

As the late Saul Alinsky admonished in his "Rules for Radicals," "the community organizer ... must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression."

After Obama goaded the demonstrators, the protests swelled. All 14 Democratic state senators fled to Illinois to paralyze the upper chamber by denying it a quorum. Teachers went on strike, left kids in the classroom and came to Madison. Schools shut down.

Jesse Jackson arrived. The White House political machine went into overdrive to sustain the crowds in Madison and other capitals and use street pressure to break governments seeking to peel back the pay, perks, privileges and power of public employee unions that are the taxpayer-subsidized armies of the Democratic Party.

Marin County millionairess Nancy Pelosi, doing a poor imitation of Emma Goldman, announced, "I stand in solidarity with the Wisconsin workers fighting for their rights, especially for all the students and young people leading the charge."

Is this not the same lady who called Tea Partiers "un-American" for "drowning out opposing views"? Is not drowning out opposing views exactly what those scores of thousands are doing in Madison, banging drums inside the state Capitol?

Some carried signs comparing Walker to Hitler, Mussolini and Mubarak. One had a placard with the face of Walker in the cross hairs of a rifle sight. Major media seemed uninterested. These signs didn't comport with their script.

In related street action, protesters, outraged over Congress' oversight of the D.C. budget, showed up at John Boehner's residence on Capitol Hill to abuse the speaker at his home.

And so the great battle of this generation is engaged.

Between now and 2013, the states are facing a total budget shortfall of $175 billion. To solve it, they are taking separate paths.

Illinois voted to raise taxes by two-thirds and borrow $12 billion more, $8.5 billion of it to pay overdue bills. The Republican minority fought this approach, but was outvoted and accepted defeat.

Wisconsin, however, where Republicans captured both houses and the governor's office in November, and which is facing a deficit of $3.6 billion over the next two years, has chosen to cut spending.

Walker and the legislature want to require state employees, except police, firemen and troopers, to contribute half of their future pension benefits and up to 12.6 percent of health care premiums.

Wisconsin state workers and teachers enjoy the most generous benefits of state employees anywhere in America. According to the MacIver Institute, the average teacher in the Milwaukee public schools earns $100,000 a year -- $56,000 in pay, $44,000 in benefits -- and enjoys job security.

More controversially, Walker would end collective bargaining for benefits while retaining it for salaries and wage hikes up to annual inflation. This would ease the burden on local governments and school districts faced with the same budget crisis but less able to stand up to large and powerful government unions.

Other new governors like John Kasich of Ohio are looking at the Wisconsin approach to save their states from bankruptcy. They, too, are now facing massive street protests instigated by Obama and orchestrated by his agents operating out of the DNC.

The Battle of Madison, where Obama, Pelosi, the AFL-CIO, Jackson, the teachers unions and the Alinskyite left are refusing to accept the results of the 2010 election and taking to the streets to break state governments, is shaping up as the first engagement in the Battle for America. What will be decided?

Can the states, with new governments elected by the people, roll back government to prevent a default? Or will the states be forced by street protests, work stoppages by legislators, and strikes by state employees and teachers to betray the people who elected them? Will they be forced to raise taxes ad infinitum to feed the government's insatiable appetite for tax dollars?

In short, does democracy work anymore in America?

What Obama has done will come back to haunt him. He has encouraged if not incited an angry and alienated left that lost the country in a free election to overturn the results of that election by street protests and invasions of state capitols.

As the huge antiwar demonstrations in the 1960s broke the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson and sought to break the presidency of Richard M. Nixon, Obama and his cohorts are out to break Wisconsin.

One hopes the people of Wisconsin will stand up to this extortion being carried on with the blessing of their own President.

From OMG.Yahoo!.com [or some such nonsense]:

Beyoncé under fire for blackface photos

Beyonce graces the March issue of L'Officiel Paris, but it's a controversial photo of the superstar inside the French fashion magazine that's getting the most attention.

The glossy is celebrating its 90th anniversary, and Beyonce marks the occasion with an homage to Nigerian musician and humanitarian Fela Kuti; Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, is a producer on the acclaimed Broadway musical "Fela!," based on the icon's life, music and courageous defiance against government corruption. In a statement (via Jezebel), L'Officiel describes the Feli-inspired photo of Beyonce -- sporting blackface, tribal paint and a dress designed by her mom -- as a "return to her African roots, as you can see on the picture, on which her face was voluntarily darkened." (Here is an image of the cover along with other "African Queen"-themed images from the photo spread.)

Not everyone is a fan of the editorial vision and tribute to Kuti; the image simultaneously inspires and provokes. Writes Jezebel's Dodai Stewart: "It's fun to play with fashion and makeup, and fashion has a history of provocation and pushing boundaries. But when you paint your face darker in order to look more 'African,' aren't you reducing an entire continent, full of different nations, tribes, cultures and histories, into one brown color?"

"It's one thing to feel moved by Fela Kuti, and quite another to treat blackness as a fashion accessory, like a pair of glittery heels you put on because it looks cool," Stewart adds.

Charing Ball, a writer at the Atlanta Post, blasts the fashion industry's recent obsession with blackface as an accepted form of racism passed off as art. "Blackface is not fashion forward or edgy and, in my opinion, it is just flat-out offensive," writes Ball, incriminating Beyonce in perpetuating the offense.

Blackface has been particularly trendy among European fashion titles; in October 2009, French Vogue featured a white model in blackface a year after the Italian edition of Vogue ran a much-hyped issue with all-black models as a response to the lack of diversity within the industry.

Meanwhile, Beyonce and other black stars have had their skin lightened on the cover of glossy women's mags and in advertisements; see Beyonce's 2008 L'Oreal ad compared with a real photo of the singer. See also: Actress Gabby Sidibe's 2010 Elle magazine cover wherein her dark skin appeared several tones lighter.

"The message we're getting from the fashionistas," Stewart writes, "is that it's bad to actually have dark skin, but totally cool to pretend you have it."

Beyonce will no doubt maintain a diplomatic stance on the photoshoot. But, for once -- for once! -- it would be refreshing to hear her speak her mind and have a stance on something beyond her music.

Let's feed government "workers" to the poor!

You know the twenty-seven fat-assed morons it takes to fix a single pothole in your town? [Sure you do - those who got their "jobs" because they're related to somebody in the city sealer's office and keep those "jobs" by supporting The Party Of Blasphemy, Buggery, and 'Bortion.]

Since the price of food is skyrocketing due to the jug-eared Commie-In-Chief turning people food into gasoline and deficit-spending [BTW, did you kiddies know that the "stimulus" money was used to preserve public sector jobs?] the whole world into Weimar-like hyperinflation, poor folks could sure use a protein subsidy.

There is plenty of meat on the bones of those SEIU and AFSCME creeps who have nothing better to do than clog the free toilets of the Wisconsin Assembly [and stand around gazing lovingly at your potholes]. So why don't we butcher 'em, freeze dry 'em, and ship 'em to those third world hellholes the compassionate left loves so much?

The imbeciles at Fox [Entertainment, not News] canceled The Good Guys, thus depriving all red-blooded males the joy of seeing Jenny Wade, who almost single-handedly brought back the tight tailored skirt.


From the pages of The King Abdullah Gazette:

Sadly, there seem to be few good photos of Jenny. I suggest you find copies of The Good Guys episodes. It was better than most of the garbage on Fox.

Remember to blame Bush when gas hits $4 a gallon...

From the Pioneer Press:

Libya unrest rattles markets; oil prices jump

NEW YORK — Stocks fell sharply and oil prices spiked to their highest level in two years today as unrest in Libya worsened.

...I'm sure the America Last media will.

Why Benito Insane Okhrana hates Persians and Libyans but appears to love Egyptians.

It's simple. Dumbo The Presiphant [An Asian presiphant, of course. An African presiphant would be racist.] knows he doesn't have the balls to confront real murderous thugs, so he made a big show of "ousting" Hosni while ignoring the slaughter in Iran and Libya.

Ol' Jug Ears is a classic totalitarian of the middle. He's an effete snob who refuses to get his baby's bottom-soft hands dirty. He gets his tiny rocks off by pushing around civilized people who are silly [and suicidal] enough to respect his election. [See the point where democracy goes from being merely a system to a fetish and ultimately a religion.] In other words, Emperor Haile Unlikely likes people to oppose him with lawyers, protests, op-ed pieces, books, and voter registration drives. Power-mad mass murderers who have no respect for legalism or diplomacy or "process" make America's first mulatto Jimmy Carter run and hide.


I have a sneaking feeling our next Fearless Leader may take out his sexual inadequacies on the home front with gunfire instead of merely ripping up the constitution and destroying the economy...

About Me

My photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
