Random Musings

So, howsabout that Tea Party? 
You know, "We The People". 
No new taxes! 
Well, that Teabagging/Republican led House of Representatives just raised taxes on the 99% of the American people while protecting the 1% with extended tax cuts.
Hey 'baggers? 
You got egg on your face.


Exxon Mobil Corp. has made history.....for being virulently anti-gay in its employment  practices.
Last week Exxon Mobil--No. 2 on the Fortune 500 and has more than 80,000 employees worldwide--became the first business to ever receive a negative score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. Exxon Mobil failed to meet any of the criteria for the 2012 Index, and actually had points deducted for engaging in activities that undermine LGBT equality.
Their HRC score? Minus-25.
On a more positive note, American Airlines--the airline of Baldwin.......I jest--is one of only nine companies that have received perfect scores every single year since the Index began in 2002. Others include, Aetna, Alcatel-Lucent, Apple, Eastman Kodak, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Nike, Replacements Ltd. and Xerox.


I stay away from commenting on the Jerry Sandusky, Rape-A-Boy Academy scandal, but sometimes, well, the things people say.....
His lawyer, in defending Jerry's habit of showering with, fondling, and raping young boys, offered this defense: "Some of these kids don't have basic hygiene skills. Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body."
See, Jerry Sandusky ain't a pedophile, he's a hygiene teacher.
Seriously.


South Carolina's batshit crazy, lying, hypocritical, all-for-herself, and fuck the state, governor, Nikki Haley, has gone out on a limb and endorsed Mittsy Romney for president.
Haley, a Teabagger Darling, stayed away from endorsing any candidate that the Tea Party favors, like Michele "Wacknut" Bachmann, and instead chose Flipper Romney as her man.
Why, you ask?
Because Romney has a better shot at getting the nomination than any crazy-asshatted tea drinker, and Nikki Haley wants to hang her self-promoting ass on his star.
It isn't about the Tea Party, or South Carolina, or even Mitt Romney. It's about Nikki Haley doing what's best for Nikki Haley.
Fuck everybody else.


The Denver Gay Men's Chorus had a concert at the L2 Arts and Culture Center in Denver over the weekend, but you wouldn't know by looking at the marquee.
The word "gay" in the choir's name, deemed too inappropriate to be broadcast in bright lights, was instead replaced with three asterisks.
I guess in Denver, gay doesn't exist.


Carlos has taken up the trumpet again, and has been practicing most nights.
So........
Most nights I sit on the couch, holding pillows over my head.
I'm trying to drown out the cacophony, but I'm also afraid I'll suffocate.
Either way........
Just kidding Charlie!!!


Newt Gingrich, serial adulterer, told a gay man in Iowa to vote for Obama if he wants gay rights.
Oh, but we will, Newt, we will. I don't think any gay man and woman, or many men or women, would use a man who marries a woman, fucks around on her, then divorces her while she's battling cancer to marry his mistress, then fucks around on the mistress-turned-wife, and then marries that mistress, and then changes to Catholicism so he can have his first two marriages annulled, would look to you as the measuring dick, er, stick for what constitutes marriage.
But, I digress.
Scott Arnold, a Democrat, had an open mind about Newty, but wanted to know how Gingrich would represent him as president after all the things Newty has said about the LGBT community: “I asked him if he’s elected, how does he plan to engage gay Americans. How are we to support him? And he told me to support Obama. When you ask somebody a question and you expect them to support all Americans and have everyone’s general interest, it’s a little bit frustrating and disheartening when you’re told to support the other side. That he doesn’t’ need your support.”
He.Told.Me.To.Support.Obama.
And I will.

That Gay Men's Chorus sign really pissed me off. I would expect this in the South but not Colorado.

Between lawyers and politicians must think we good people are just plain gullible to believe all this crap! And I'm outta here Bob, so a Merry Christmas to you and Carlos! Have a good one!
