Random Musings

Quick question: are we gonna sit and mourn the lives lost in Aurora Colorado last week, or are we finally gonna demand that something be done about the ease in which folks can buy massive amounts of ammunition, and assault weapons and machine guns, for their ‘personal’ use?
I mean, seriously, with the exception of a soldier on the ground in a war torn country, who needs a machine gun?
I’m sure I’ll be asking these questions again the next time some nut job flunks a test and wants to take out a bunch of strangers.
Of course, when I say do something about gun control, I mean get the politicians involved and make them stand up to the NRA lobbyists.
Like that will ever happen.
But then I happened upon Beth's, of Nutwood Junction, Facebook page and saw this excerpt from an interview that Mittsy did with Brian Williams of NBC. In it, Mittsy talks about what we need to do to make sure this never happens again.
Let's listen in….
Brian Williams: "On things however like Aurora, Colorado, do you see why Americans get frustrated at politics. They can see and hear your words from earlier in their career, people are hurting out there. Perhaps they want to start a national conversation about whether an AR-15 belongs in the hands of a citizen, whether a citizen should be able to buy 6-thousand rounds off the Internet. You see the argument?"
Mitt Romney: "Well this person shouldn't have had any kind of weapons and bombs and other devices and it was illegal for him to have many of those things already. But he had them. And so we can sometimes hope that just changing the law will make all bad things go away. It won't. Changing the heart of the American people may well be what's essential, to improve the lots of the American people."
Bob said, on Facebook What an utterly delusional, out-of-tough, pandering fuck. Hopefully people will really listen to his moronic statements and change their hearts and minds about voting for this useless fool. Asshat!

Boo hoo. Penn State was fined and punished for its part in covering up years and years worth of child rape. Boo-effing-hoo.
First the halo gets removed from aider and abettor Joe Paterno on a mural, followed by the removal, and, I wish, disposal, of a Paterno statue. And folks at Penn State and whined and stomped their feet about that.
Now, comes the fines and punishment to the university.
Penn State was socked with a four-year postseason ban, the loss of 40 scholarships over four years and a $60 million fine for covering up the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. In addition, all victories from 1998-2011 have been vacated.
Never happened.
If you whine about this, and I know some of you will, ask yourselves what the victims of Sandusky, Paterno, and Penn State wouldn't give to have their abuse ‘vacated’ as if it never happened.
If you choose football over children, you’re on the wrong team.
PS The $60M fine will be used to create a fund for the victims of sexual abuse.

The Palins have never been known for being particularly gay-friendly--or even very intelligent--so is it so surprising that the newest members of Alaska's First White Trash Family, Blister's illegitimate son, Tripp, is already, at age three, a homophobic asshat?
See, there's this clip from the Lifetime reality series "Blister Palin: Life's a Tripp" where his mama, and his bigot aunt, and functional illiterate, Willow, won't let him go in the pool, and Tripp responds by calling his aunt a "faggot."
And Blister and Willow bust out in giggles, because nothing brings a family together like hate.
Sidenote: Blister says Tripp didn't call Willow a "faggot" he called her a "fucker."
Oh, that's so much better.

More fallout from the Boy Scouts of America's announcement that they will continue being homophobic. Major League Soccer was set to partner with the BSA starting this year, but have already decided that one year is enough:
“Major League Soccer’s agreement with the Boy Scouts of America expires at the end of the 2012 season and MLS does not intend to renew the agreement for a variety of business reasons,” MLS President Mark Abbott said in a statement.
"Business" reasons. Uh huh. Blatant homophobia is a business to the BSA, I guess.

Mariah Carey is the newest judge on American Idol, and I'm guessing the announcement made JLo fall off her Louboutins; luckily, she has that fat ass to land on.
See, JLo was making about $15 million dollars a season on Idol for her musical expertise, and left possibly because the AI producers wouldn't cough up more dough.
But then they signed Carey for $18 million a season.
Crazy pays in Hollywood, and if y'all thought Paula was nuts, spend a minute--because that's all you'll need--watching Mariah "judge".

The Jackson Family Feud.
Seriously. Does anyone not believe it's about the money? I mean, Michael left his siblings out of his will--nit that there was much in there to begin with because Propofol is expensive--but now that Grandma Jackson has turned his estate around and it's worth about a billion big ones, all the fighting has started again.
And, why do they all have to Tweet their family business?
STFU and get a job.

Okay, so first Chick-fil-Antigay came out as being blatantly homophobic, while couching it in Christian beliefs.
Then people threatened to boycott. Then Mike Huckabee, one of the more inane and pointless human beings on the planet, came out for Chick-fil-Antigay because God Hates Fags, or some such.
Then The Muppets said, 'Fuck you Mike and Chick-fil-Antigay.' Or something, I might be paraphrasing. But The Muppets ended their affiliation with Chick-fil-Antigay over the fast food company's bigotry.
Now, and this is funny, Chick-fil-Antigay has announced that they are yanking all those Muppets toys right out their Baby Jeebus-approved kid's meals:
"Chick-fil-A is initiating a voluntary withdrawal for our Jim Henson Creature Shop Puppet Kid's Meal Premiums due to a product issue. In lieu of the kid's meal premium we will offer a Kid's Icedream. We plan to have replacement kid's meal premiums within 2 weeks. Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience."
Funny thing is that Chick-fil-Antigay took a page out of Mittsy's playbook and "retroactively" removed the Muppet Toys, making it seem as if the decision had been made before Kermit told them to kiss his green ass.
It's funny because Chick-fil-Antigay, and homophobia, is stupid.

Penn State should have got the death penalty.

Penn State got the "living death" penalty, which I'm happy about, but I hate how certain alumni (Franco Harris comes to mind) STILL defend the program.

I'm going to refer to them as Pedophile State University for now on.
