Another perfectly good cherished childhood memory crushed

When I was a kid my three favorite comic books were

1. Spiderman
2. X-Men
3. Jonah Hex

The first two had already been destroyed but now it appears Jonah Hex will join the list. At least if this trailer is any indication;




Is it really so difficult to stay in canon and go with the perfectly good Jonah Hex stories from the comics? Is that too freaking much to ask?

Crushing of Dissent

Gizmodo buys an iPhone some guy found.

Editor gets his house raided.

Now, I guess one could argue that it was on suspicion of possession of stolen property?  But if you read the whole story as presented by Gizmodo (clearly biased and pretty much douchebags most of the time) it seems they made attempts to return it as did the first guy. 

So, law-talking peeps.  What's the haps?

Ann Althouse Doesn't Like Draw Mohammed Day

It might offend someone.

Well, let me tell you why I don't care.  Every time something like this happens, the publishing organization hears threats (Comedy Central in this case) but where is the wave of moderate muslims expressing their belief that hey, its okay.  Freedom of speech is important and we, like every other religion, have a sense of humor.

Crickets.

So, how about this?  We'll call off Draw Mohammed Day if we hear one, just ONE, major American Islamic organization express their support for South Park's right to free speech.

Otherwise, fuck them.  I hope the kinds of people that would be offended by Draw Mohammed day ARE offended. 

After all, nobody has a right not to be offended and we're not exactly doing this to make friends.

Someone is a little off message

In which I admit I don't know what to do

This is an utterly depressing article about the state of Africa today.  I'll admit it, I try not to think about what's going on in much of Africa because it's far too depressing.  Prof. Reynolds linked to this and commented that this is the state of nature.  This is what civilization is designed to combat. 

I'm trying to hunt down the link, but I recently read that there are now more human beings in slavery then there were at the height of what we consider the slave trade.  That's so horrifying that my mind simply stops.  It's as if those words make sense individually but not in a row.  It's 2010.  How can there still be slavery?  Oh, I understand intellectually that mankind is fallen and is innately corrupt.  Reading about human trafficking and war by rape and the Eastern European sex slavery rings and all the rest is just too much.

Do I have a solution?  No.  No, I don't know what to do.  I can't even begin to wrap my mind around where to start.  There are portions of Africa where the most basic elements of society, such as not beating to death newborn babies, must be rebuilt. 

The one thing I do know?  I will hit my knees tonight and thank God with every fiber of my being that I was born in America.  It is a blessing beyond compare.

Disgraceful

I almost forgot, Comedy Central censored the hell out of last night's South Park Episode going so far as to censor even the use of the word Mohammad.  Of course, images of Bhudda snorting cocaine and Jesus making cum jokes was totally cool by them.

Fucking spineless, douchetools.  I don't know why Trey and Matt don't tell them to get throat-fucked by a horse and go independent.  I'm sure they have enough money and the internet would provide more than enough exposure. 

They finally have the creative freedom not allowed by that bunch of ball-gagged extremist rape-slaves.

Beyond parody

The "refs" decided what was legit and not legit in an election campaign with a completely unknown candidate with a long record of crazy, obvious odd lies. The press acted as a guardian of those in power, not as a fearless skeptic. That's what worries me. If they did it once, they'll do it again.

—Andrew Sullivan writing in The Atlantic, NOT referring to Barack Hussein Obama.

Yeah.

Protip: If Philly fans are annoying you or being obnoxious

...don't say anything, just leave.  Philly fans are the lowest form of life on the planet, and it just isn't going to go well for you unless you have a beltfed, a couple thousand rounds and a buddy to swap out barrels. 

Seriously, this sick fuck shoved his fingers down his throat and puked on a on off-duty police officer and his family because the cop had the audacity to ask him and his buddies not to curse in front of his family, then Pukeface McDickhead punched the cop a few times as security approached.  Pukeface did that because the off-duty cop reported him and his buddies to an usher after they spit on his daughter and continued to curse in front of his family.

Retroactive abortions are not OK

I wasn't going to blog on this, really I wasn't. But the sheer callousness of Torry Hansen's actions, and the fact that some loons are actually defending that this not-mother put her adopted child on a plane alone to a country where he is no longer a citizen with a note saying he's unwanted, has my head spinning around like a pre-teen Linda Blair.

I'm willing to give Torry Hansen some benefit of the doubt at this point.  Maybe the adoption agency did tell her she was hitting the jackpot in adopting a kid who made it to the age of seven institutionalized with no emotional or mental problems, and no one had chosen to adopt him just because he was unlucky.  Maybe the fresh scars on the kid have nothing to do with faux-parent abuse - heck, it's a rare week when neither of my kids have multiple scrapes and bruises, and maybe she didn't really tell the kid that he was going on vacation when she shipped him back to Russia.  Maybe the kid really did try to set the house on fire - really, out of all the stuff being tossed around, I think this is most likely true.  Maybe the adoption agency really didn't try to keep in touch with Torry Hansen.  It's conceivable that lots of things are being twisted to paint Torry Hansen in the worst possible light.

But still...
more...

Another reason to hate Jenny McCarthy

I guess "I'll continue to be the voice [of autism]" means shutting down the school for autistic kids you've been funding.

This is not Scrabble, dammit!

We're one step away from laying down LOLcatspeak for a triple word score.

What caused about 10,000 near-heart attacks from London to El Segundo, Calif., began a few days ago with a tiny item in a British trade paper. It referred to Mattel's plans to introduce a new kind of Scrabble that would permit the use of proper nouns.

The Anti-Moron Initiative

Did you guys see the thing in the sidebar at Moron Central about the neo-prohibitionist assholes here in California who want to hike the excise taxes on wine, beer, and spirits to ridiculous levels? Thankfully, I doubt they'll even get the nearly 435,000 signatures needed to put this piece of shit on the ballot, but even if they did, I can't see it passing. Imagine the money that  the California wine industry alone would pour (no pun intended) into killing it.

But, let's say it did pass somehow. Can you imagine the GINORMOUS Costco-style liquor stores that would spring up overnight just across the borders of Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon? People would be renting U-Hauls and filling them with booze to drag back to this hellhole. Oh, and to say that the black market would do a brisk business would be a huge understatement.

Yeah, this has the stink of FAIL all over it.

The Left has officially lost their minds.

The newest lefty meme is that Sean Hannity has finally let the mask slip. He called out all those racist teabaggers out as "Tim McVeigh wannabes" and, horror of horrors, they laughed at that characterization.



Since, as we all know, the Right has no sense of humor, they were obviously proud of this comparison, and quickly went out to bomb federal buildings. 

It's like January 20, 2001 to January 20, 2009 never happened.
