My Two Cents: _____ Fuels Hate and Violence

Rex Huppke is not a political columnist, and he’d be the first to tell you that. He does, however, write for the rather conservative-leaning Chicago Tribune to, as he puts it, provide “wry spin on today’s social trends, pop-culture misfires and political blowhards.” He writes often about _____, and will continue to do so, but wishes it wasn’t so:
“I write about this president often, and I’d like to write about him less, but I won’t, because he never stops behaving in a way that degrades our humanity. He never finds a bottom. And that’s not OK.”
And _____ sank to a new low last week in yet another speech where he described, in gruesome detail, a brutal attack on 16-year-old girl by immigrants whom he called “animals.” And, as in most _____ fear-mongering stories, there doesn’t seem to be any verification of the story; there is no innocent girl story in the press, and no band of marauding immigrant animals, either.

But _____ doesn’t care about facts; he cares about riling up his base; the anti-immigrant folks, the haters and the gun nuts. His choice of that fairy tale was to inspire hatred for anyone who is an immigrant in this country because, as we know after months of listening to ... and let this sink in ... the President of the United States spew hatred ... he needs to keep ‘us’—some of us—fearful, and maybe then they’ll ignore the ineptitude and corruption in his administration.

He wants to keep ‘us’ worried about ‘them’ so we don’t watch him. And the thing that I find most frightening is that, if you heard that story from a friend, your first question might be, “Where’d you hear that?” And your friend wouldn’t be able to answer because they made it up and so you’d probably walk away, shaking your head at the lunacy of your former pal. But not _____; as Huppke points out, his behavior is both “sadistic” and “intentionally dehumanizing.”

Again, worry about ‘them,’ and not about the fact that _____ can’t get anything done in DC—which is actually, in my mind, a good thing—that his White House is a clusterfuck of morons, and that, even with a GOP-controlled Congress, no one wants to help him out.

So he’ll spew hate to keep you on edge, to keep you on ‘his’ side against ‘them’ and all of his hate speech is meant to encourage the most base of ‘us’ to follow in his footsteps and deride, attack, or even threaten to murder, anyone who looks different.

Case in point ... Amber Hensley was caught on video threatening three Somali-American women with death.

Death; because they don’t look like the ‘us’ that fools like Amber Hensley have in her head.
The Somali-American women—Rowda Soyan, Sarah Hassan and Laleyla Hassan—were headed to a movie when Hensley approached them and started screaming; the women told Hensley they were recording her, and would give the video to the authorities. Hensley told them to “move their car” and then said this:
“Go home, go home. We’re going to kill all of you. We’re going to kill everyone one of you.”
After the video went viral, Hensley apologized, saying it was “not a Christian-like thing to do”:
“I would first like to apologize for the horrible things that I said ... It was not a Christian-like thing to do AT ALL and wish I could take it back, but I lost my cool and I can’t. I am terribly sorry. I just wish the whole video could be shown. And the things that were stated before she starts taping.”
Hensley then tries to excuse her actions by saying that the women had parked too close to her. Again she said:
“We’re going to kill everyone one of you.”
Hensley says because the women had parked too close to her car, she couldn’t get in; she says she asked them to move and they called her ‘fat’. She told them she was a Christian—right before she threatened to murder them all—and the women responded, “F**K Jesus.”

After making excuse after excuse for threatening to kill someone because ‘they’ don’t look like ‘us,’ Hensley admits there was no excuse for her behavior, and she “will take any form of punishment deemed fit.”

Hensley was fired from her job as a secretary at a Fargo accounting firm, Horab & Wentz:
“Horab & Wentz does not agree with or support the statements expressed by Amber Hensley in the recently posted video. She does not represent or reflect the views of Horab & Wentz. Ms. Hensley is no longer employed with Horab & Wentz effective immediately.”
For their part, Rowda Soyan, Sarah Hassan and Laleyla Hassan say they filmed the incident to show what happens to them every day, and when they tell Hensley they will show the video to the police, Hensley says:
“You think the police care?”
But maybe the police did care, because after the incident hit social media, Amber Hensley met with Leyla and Sarah Hassan at the Fargo Police Department to talk; Chief David Todd shared the story:
“The incident that happened at the Walmart parking lot ... shows we have some things to work on as a community and as individuals. The vast majority of us, if we look to the past of our grandparents, great grandparents or those before them—we identify with their heritage and have some pride in it.
We are all a little different and that is okay, in fact it’s good—if we strive to understand each other, accept each other and respect each other. If we do that, our diversity can make us stronger as a community.
Unfortunately, incidents like what happened this week ... can cause further division and set us back from progress we are trying to make as a community.
However, I want to put before you an example of what can be accomplished even though mistakes were made and unfortunate words were said. Amber Hensley, Sarah Hassan and Leyla Hassan have all expressed regret regarding their interaction and language with each other.
With an openness to reconciliation, these women have come together and talked through this incident and expressed their sincere regrets, apologies and most importantly, forgiveness to each other. This process has also allowed them to gain understanding and respect for each other.
Not everything is perfect in this resolution. We have some ugliness in our community that needs to be addressed and worked on [but] ... perhaps we can all take a lesson from what was an ugly unfortunate interaction and how even despite words being said that cannot be taken back, forgiveness and understanding can still be achieved.”
I like that the women took the time to meet after and talk, and apologize, and work on how they interacted with one another; but, I will say this: if you don’t have a hate in you, if you are not racist, you would never say the things Amber Hensley said. She needs to work on that; she needs to understand that we are all different, but that doesn’t make any of us ‘less than.’

Still, good on Chief Todd for wanting to do the right thing, helping his community, all of his community, to better understand one another.

I wonder how he might have felt had he attended another speech by _____—see, a full circle post—where _____ appeared to endorse police brutality, and then suggested that he, and he alone, will save the Second Amendment, because it would be replaced if he were not President.

Let’s ignore the fact that our President is too ignorant of government to realize that he, or any other president, cannot simply erase any amendment o the Constitution, and focus on how he spreads hate and advocates violence:
"When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you see them thrown in, rough, I said, 'Please don't be too nice,' like, when you guys put somebody in a car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody? Don't hit their head? I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?'"
Yes; hate, and violence. The president was encouraging police officers to ignore department policies and local, state, and federal law. And then this:
"Your Second Amendment is safe. Wasn't looking so good for the Second Amendment was it, huh? If _____ doesn't win, your 2nd Amendment is gone."
Actually, I believe most police officers, and departments—and officers and departments from around the country have blasted ____ for his hate speech—would be happier to have _____ gone, on or before the next election.

Look, let me make this queer: I’ve been around a while; I’ve seen presidents come and go. Some I liked; some, not so much.

George w. Bush comes to mind, but even Bush never advocated violence from our police officers; he may have been, and how do I put this delicately, “intellectually challenged” but he didn’t use hate speech to pit ‘us’ against ‘them’ and then stand by and let it happen.

That’s on _____; and his base.

It's Snarkurday!

I’ve never heard of Willa Ford, but apparently she’s aiming for a comeback of sorts.

Willa’s first—and only—single was the bad girl anthem I Wanna Be Bad; it was released in May 2001 and became a kind of a hit. It was followed by the release of her first album Willa Was Here and a second single, Did Ya’ Understand That.

Unfortunately, Did Ya’ was released on September 11, 2001 and now, sixteen years later, Willa’s still complaining:
“Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still, as it should have. My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned.”
So, she’s blaming the bad reception on 9/11? Seriously? Thousands died that day, lives were changed forever, and she’s complaining because her single didn’t hit?

Except ... Did Ya’ Understand That was actually released on December 4, 2001, long after 9/11, so maybe Willa’s just trying to strike up some sympathy for a career that went nowhere sixteen years ago and she thought blaming it on 9/11 was the right way to go.

Honey? Sit down. You’re not needed here.
Now, from the Delusional-I-Think-Every-Woman-Wants-Me file comes rap producer Rick Ross who, when asked why he’s never signed a lady rapper to his label, said this:
“You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up fucking a female rapper and fucking the business up. I’m so focused on my business. I just, I gotta be honest with you. You know, she looking good. I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots. I gotta fuck a couple times.”
Okay, again, look at him. Women would be unable to resist his charms?

Take a seat, Rick, I’ll call you when I stop laughing.
Who decides what movies to make, because, apparently, there is going to be a live-action Barbie movie; and it was set to star Amy Schumer—as Foul-Mouthed Barbie?—until she split, and now Anne “Oscar Winner” Hathaway will be the doll.

I can see Hathaway’s Oscar campaign for this one ... a pink convertible, a plastic house, a gender neutral date.

And lots of plastic, which would be a perfect fit for Anne Hathaway.

So, that 
was Ben Affleck’s face in that new trailer for Justice League; hopefully everyone saw it, because it appears that after Affleck fulfills his contractual duty to be Batman in Justice League and Justice League Pt. 2 he’ll never don the cape again.

And the world heaved a sigh of relief.

The upcoming standalone Batman movie, The Batman, was originally supposed to be written, directed, and starring Ben until he stepped away from directing, until his script was tossed in the trash can, until the studio realized that Affleck’s Batman is the worst thing ever.

A source—and it might just be Christian Bale, furious that Affleck has ruined the character—says that Warner Bros. is quietly making plans to “gracefully” get rid of Affleck.

Gracefully? Howsabout just killing him off? Well, not Affleck, I mean.
Teenage girls around the world have gone into mourning this week when it was announced that Justin Bieber was cancelling the remaining 15 dates of his Purpose world tour.

And, depending on who you listen to, the reasons range Justin wanted to doo it for The Baby Jeebus to Justin and “unforeseen circumstances” to, and this one seems most likely, that Justin is “just over it.”

I mean, the little twerp has never exactly cared about his fans so why wouldn’t he just end the tour because something shiny caught his eye and he wants to follow that?
A couple of years ago, I posted about the time that TV “star” Tia Mowry ran into movie star Charlize Theron at Soul Cycle and was given the grand snub. And so Tia Mowry ran to InTouch magazine to whine that Theron refused to even say ‘Hello’ to her and how devastating that was and now, apparently things have slowed down in Charlize’s life, because now, three years later, she’s clapping back ...

While doing press for Atomic Blonde, Charlize appeared on Watch What Happens Live and Andy Cohen used the game, Plead The Fifth, to ask about Tia’s remarks ...
“[Charlize] wasn’t very nice to me. I said, ‘Hi,’ and she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh, my God.’ I wasn’t over-the-top. I know how to approach another celebrity. Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”
When Andy brought this up, Charlize “jokingly” said, “What a bitch!” before dismissing it because it showed up in InTouch. But Andy, because he’s a gossipy queen like yours truly, reminded Theron that Tia herself gave the magazine the exclusive, which Andy mentioned, leading Charlize to talk about it:
“I’m really nice at SoulCycle, actually, because once my endorphins kick in I’m actually almost too friendly. I’m always touching people, like, ‘Hey!'”
Like, “Hey, TV actress? Bugger off! I’m a star!”?
From the This Is Such A Trainwreck file comes word of a new film starring Gina Gershon, Whoopi Goldberg and Charlie Sheen.

Here’s the film: total strangers, trapped in a high-rise elevator, must work together to survive before the cable snaps! And why does the cable snap?

Oh, it’s because ... wait for it ... it’s vile ... a plane just hit the North Tower.

Yup, it’s a 9/11 film ... called 9/11. Seriously. But hey, Gershon, Goldberg and Sheen?

Set your clocks for Oscar next year because I see a slew of awards for this one!
I have always blamed Usher for giving us Justin Bieber, and now it appears maybe Usher will be made to pay for it ... in a roundabout sort of way.

Usher, is being sued for $10 million for ALLEGEDLY exposing a sex partner to herpes.  And he’s known about it for years because, again, ALLEGEDLY, Usher had to pay off a former lay in 2012 for giving her herpes.

In court documents concerning that case, doctors reportedly confirmed that Usher had it and shared, and now a different woman—referred to as “Jane Doe”—is suing “U.R. IV”—AKA Usher—for “negligence, battery and emotional distress” and seeking $10,000,000 in damages.

Now, you might think that ten million for herpes is a lot of Chlamydia, er, clams, the truth is that Jane Doe doesn’t claim to have contracted herpes, but after doing the deed with Usher’s STD peen and then finding out about the first case make her need a lot of coins to calm herself down.

Doe claims that she had sex with Usher on April 16 and that there was “heavy petting, some kissing, and she performed oral sex on him”—though he wore a condom. Two weeks later, they had a repeat performance only this time Usher was glove-less down there.

And then she read the reports that he has The Herpes and off to court she went because the mere idea that she had unprotected sex with him and he may have given her herpes, but didn’t, should equal ten million bucks.

Maybe Usher could ask Bieber for a loan?
So, Michael B. Jordan was at Comic Con over the weekend because he’s Killmonger in Black Panther, and was asked about being a sex symbol and he literally said:
“Who? Me?”
And the crowd was all, “Yes! You!” as Jordan tried to sidestep the talk:
“I’m just adjusting to this new air that I’m kind of breathing in, and it’s a balance. I’m trying to find a balance. I’m just trying to mature and develop as a man and as an actor, in front of the screen and behind, so it’s cool. I’m handling it OK. My family is keeping me grounded.”
Sweet. But here’s the deal ... Michael B. Jordan is a sex symbol.

Clearly ...

I Didn't Say It ...

Jennifer Finney Boylan, Trans woman, author and activist, on her “gay agenda”:

“What I want above all, is the special right to be left alone, and to be considered half of just one more unextraordinary American couple—just as the two of us were as we sat at the bar watching the ocean and drinking our beers. You’d think that most of this would be common sense—that protecting American citizens from violence and unemployment and homelessness would be something we’d all agree upon. You’d think that respecting the privacy and humanity of some of the country’s most vulnerable souls would be a common goal.”

Isn’t that simple? Just live and let live ...
Elton John, telling Prince Harry how his mother, Princess Diana, changed attitudes toward gay people and people with AIDS:

“It was considered to be a gay disease. For someone who was within the Royal Family and who was a woman, and who was straight, to have someone care from the other side, was an incredible gift. Because of her ... she had that incredible ability—which [Harry] kind of inherited—to make people feel at ease and make them feel that everything’s gonna be all right. I haven’t experienced many people in my life who have that ability, but she could walk into a room of people and make them feel as if everything was great.”

She truly helped changed minds about the LGBT community and, especially, people with AIDS.
Jason Chaffetz, suggesting what the GOP needs to do about the Democrats and their investigation into the _____ Klan and Russia:

“Republicans need to get a backbone. Every time the Democrats say they need to call up Jared Kushner or Don Jr.—call up Chelsea Clinton, call up the Clintons. ... You have Bill Clinton, the former president, taking millions and millions of dollars from countries, that Hillary Clinton is going in and then doing business. So every time a Democrat says ‘I gotta talk to Donald _____ Jr.,’ then go up and bring Chelsea Clinton in there.”

Chaffetz a goose-stepping, ass-kissing GOP lapdog then went on to suggest that Chelsea Clinton was “involved in the Benghazi situation.”
No proof; not a shred of evidence. Just another fearmongering GOP fuckmonkey ... no offense to monkeys.
Sean Spicer, ousted White House flunky, whining to Sean Hannity about SNL:

“I think when it’s funny it’s funny. I think that there were parts of it that were funny, but there’s a lot of it that was over the line. It wasn’t funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious. But there were some skits on late night television that I did crack up at. So sometimes it can be funny, Some of the memes you have to crack up about. But sometimes it goes from funny to mean.”

Mean is still funny, you wingnut, and Melissa McCarthy was a better you than you have ever been.
Seth Meyers, on _____’s new communications director Anthony Scaramucci:

“_____’s new Communications Director is Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci. Look at this guy! He’s a human pinky ring. He’s the human embodiment of a double-parked BMW. He looks like the guy who leaves a doo-wop group over creative differences. He looks like the only magician you can get on short notice. I could go on and on. He definitely calls waitresses ‘sweetheart.’ His yearbook quote was ‘don’t worry about it!'”

I find Scaramucci to look a little like comedian Mario Cantone, and Tweeted Mario, sugessting he offer his services for SNL’s new season. Mario then Tweeted that he’ll be playing ‘The Mooch’ on Comedy Central, and maybe SNL will be next.
I asked him to do “The Mooch” as Lizaaaaaaaaa!
Laverne Cox, actress and Trans woman, on _____’s transgender military ban:

“I have met many transgender Americans over the years who have served or are currently serving our country in the military. I have heard from them humiliating stories of being misgendered and experiencing various kinds of mistreatment when they are willing to put their lives on the line in ways many of us would never do including our current President. This latest reversal of another Obama administration policy continues to send the message to trans Americans that our lives, our safety and service are less valuable and unwanted in this country, the country I love and hold so dear.”

After eight years of Obama, I cannot grasp the idea that a president is trying to go back to closeting people, discriminating against people, treating anyone as less than.
Gregory Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans, on _____’s ban: 

“This smacks of politics, pure and simple. The United States military already includes transgender individuals who protect our freedom day in and day out. Excommunicating transgender soldiers only weakens our readiness; it doesn’t strengthen it. The president’s statement this morning does a disservice to transgender military personnel and reintroduces the same hurtful stereotypes conjured when openly gay men and women were barred from service during the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ era. As an organization that led the charge against that hateful policy, Log Cabin Republicans remains equally committed to standing up for transgender military personnel who put their lives on the line to keep us free.”

Perhaps the LCR needs to rethink its party affiliation because, while some in the GOP are quietly bigoted, this stance is not really that new.
Orrin Hatch, Utah Seantor and Republican, on the trans ban:

“I don’t think we should be discriminating against anyone. Transgender people are people, and deserve the best we can do for them. I look forward to getting much more information and clarity from our military leaders about the policy the President tweeted today.”

Well, well, well, color me embarrassed. A Republican, from Utah no less, showing support for the Trans community.
Is it me, or did Hell suddenly get a lot cooler?
Michael Surgaugh, Boy Scouts of America president, finally commenting on _____’s disgusting speech at their Jamboree”:

“I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent. The invitation for the sitting U.S. President to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition that has been extended to the leader of our nation that has had a Jamboree during his term since 1937. It is in no way an endorsement of any person, party or policies. For years, people have called upon us to take a position on political issues, and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program.”

You should have known when you invited him. When _____ gives a speech he only speaks about himself, never the group to whom he’s speaking.
And, about ten seconds in, when you realized this was to be a political speech,. His microphone should have been cut off.
No disrespect to an actual president, but the #FakePresident needed to sit down.

Random Musings ... Well, A Funny, A Giant F**k Off Pile, A Hot Man and A Tweet

I’m’a start off with a laugh, I hope, and then get down to building a giant Fuck Off Pile for a lot of other folks.

Carlos plays trumpet in a local community band, so he blows his, um, horn, every night after dinner. The other night, as I do, I asked this question:
“Are you practicing your bazooka tonight?”
“My bazooka?”
“Well, you say trumpet, I say bazooka because it’s an assault on my ears!”
Okay ... the Fuck Off Pile:

So _____ once said he would be an ally to the LGBT community and then, once elected, scrubbed the White House website of its LGBT pages ... removed LGBT Americans from the Census count ... and completely ignored Pride month.

Now, he’s come specifically for our Trans brothers and sisters who wish to join, or are already enlisted in, the military, saying that American forces could not afford the “tremendous medical costs and disruption” of transgender service members ... except, the military spends more on Viagra than it does medical costs for transgender personnel.

The Lying President also said he’d consulted generals and military experts, but Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was given just one day’s notice about the decision.

Oh, and those “tremendous medical costs” that the estimated 15,000 Trans military personnel might need would add $8.4 million to the total medical costs of all active duty service members ... about 0.1 % of what the military spends on medical care for all service members and an increase of about 0.0014% of _____’s defense budget.

But, hey, ban Trans persons anyway!

Here’s my thought: a spoiled little rich boy, back in the late 60s and early 70s received five deferments from serving in Vietnam because, ahem, he had bone spurs and his feet hurt. But then he continued to play football on those bad feet while other Americans went to war, and now, as president this draft-dodging motherf**ker is banning Trans persons from service because they are a “disruption”?

Trans persons fight every single day just to be themselves.

Trans persons fight every day to live openly.

Trans persons fight every day to use a bathroom that aligns with their gender identity.

Trans persons fight every day to live and work and survive as they are.

Trans persons, especially Trans women, fight every single day just to stay alive and not be beaten, bashed or murdered for being Trans.

And, again, a draft-dodging assh*le treats them like pariahs when they choose to serve the country that, once again, pushes them into a corner and treats them as less than.

Fuck off, Mr. President. You are screwing with the wrong crowd.
Oh, and where are Jared and Ivanka during this?

Ivanka made a point to Tweet out support during Pride Month, calling herself an ally to our community, but where is she now?

Are there Chinese workers slacking off in sweatshops rather than making her crappy clothes and handbags?

Ivanka, and Jared, you two can jump in the Fuck Off Pile, too.
Also in the Fuck Off Pile is Senator John McCain who came back to the Senate this week after being out for surgery and a cancer diagnosis.

See, after his free healthcare allowed doctors to find his pre-existing condition, diagnose it and start a treatment course, McCain arrived in the Senate to cast his vote in favor of advancing the bill to repeal Obamacare.

Yes, healthcare, free and clear, is fine for McCain, but he voted to deny it to 25 million Americans because ... Obama.

The Vote Vets organization also made notice that while John McCain ripped healthcare from millions, including veterans, he has also opposed the GI Bill and wants to privatize the Veterans Administration.

Quite the legacy Old Man. Get off our lawn.
Remember back in 2014, when drunken assh*le Kathryn Knott and 14 of her thug friends were partying in Philadelphia and came across gay couple Zachary Hesse and Andrew Haught and then attacked them while shouting anti-gay slurs?

Knott refused to take a plea, was found guilty and sentenced to prison. Now out, she is facing a civil suit from the victims, who are seeking $500,000 in damages from her and two men in the group, Philip Williams and Kevin Harrigan—who took a plea deal to avoid jail time—and now Knott is claiming self-defense.

Yes, she is; she says the victims may have been injured, but it only happened because she was defending herself from Hesse, Haught, “and their friends.”

Odd, because she and her friends started the altercation, and no one knows what “friends” she’s talking about because Hesse and Haught were alone when attacked. And so, if that doesn’t fly—and it shouldn’t—Knot also blames Harrigan and Williams for the victims’ injuries.

She was there; she started it; she shouted the hate speech; but it was in self-defense?

The Fuck Off Pile grows larger ... Fuck Off, Kathryn.
David Narramore, a Kentucky Republican Party county chairman, has resigned after he was arrested in Tennessee on charges of indecent exposure and resisting arrest in a Belk department store.

A Belk employee was in the next stall and claims Narramore started rubbing his foot against the employee’s foot; then, outside the stall, Narramore exposed himself to the employee.

Security was called and escorted Narramore to an office to wait for police to arrive; police say he “passively” resisted arrest and then attempted to fight officers, so they tried to tase him. When that didn’t work, a police officer hit Narramore in the face and wrestled him to the ground.

Narramore is charged with indecent exposure and resisting arrest, and claiming that the Belk employee returned the “foot touch,” though he doesn’t seem the claim that the Belk employee dropped his pants and showed his penis to Narramore.

Looky there, another GOP official trying to get down in a men’s room.

He can join the Fuck Off Pile, too.
Ken Ham, a religious wingnut, created Ark Encounter, a Biblical theme park for fellow religious wingnuts, but that’s not why he’s in hot water.
Ham actually sold his for-profit company to his own non-profit division of his company for the staggering price of ten-dollars so he could avoid a 50-cent per ticket local sales tax meant to pay for the additional fire and police protection required by the attraction.
And that backfired nicely. A lawyer for the Kentucky Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet sent a letter to the lawyer for Ark Encounter saying Ark Encounter, LLC, is in breach of its Tourism Development Agreement… with the Commonwealth. On July 10, 2017, the Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet… became aware of a quit claim deed transferring the Ark Project land, with all the privileges and appurtenances to the same, from Ark Encounter, LLC, a for profit company, to Crosswater Canyon, Inc. a non-profit company makes the business ineligible for state tax incentives.
And now Ham and his band of creationists have screwed themselves out of $18 million over the next decade because they didn’t want to pay a local safety fee worth about $700,000 a year.

Turns out creationists don’t do science or math. Into the Fuck Off Pile, sir.
Also in Kentucky, a Federal Judge David Bunning ordered the state to pay $222,695 in attorneys’ fees to same-sex couples who sued clerk Kim Davis in 2015 when she refused to give them marriage licenses.

So now, Kentucky taxpayers will bear the financial burden of Kim Davis’ ignorance and hate.

Sorry, not sorry. ... and Fuck Off, again, Kim.
Sean Spicer. Out of a job and now accused of theft?

Yup ... Apparently before leaving his job as ______’s spokes-tool, Spicey stole a mini-fridge from some junior staffers.

See, about a month into his gig, Spicey needed to keep his food and drink cold so he sent an aide to a nearby executive office building where junior research employees are crammed into a room, surviving on Lean Cuisine frozen lunches and had the aide take their mini-fridge.

They refused to give it up and so, ALLEGEDLY, Spicey snuck in later and stole it.

Seriously. This is the _____ White House; thieves, grifters and con artists.

Fuck Off, Spicey.
Enough of the pile ... Hot Man ...

I love Starz show Outlander.... mostly because of hottie Sam Heughan, who plays Hottie Scotsman Jamie Fraser on the show. Heughan was just featured in Men’s Health South Africa photo shoot and looks fabulous.
