Allen West, don’t be a stranger.
Ohhhh Florida! what gives? You put that idiot Grayson back in office, too.
Florida is getting to be the California of the South in some ways.
Not I. My county is the new Chicago South.
What,Matt,”Grease The Palm Beach County”?
St. Lucie, Co.
Remember, if Todd Akin says something ridiculous, gets roundly condemned by his own party and rejected at the ballot box, then he’s symbolic of the entire Republican party. But Alan Grayson says things just as bad (or worse) on a regular basis, gets reelected with his party’s full support, and that has absolutely no bearing on the Democratic party.
BarryO, RACIST!!! How long have you hated black Republicans, amigo?
Wow, BarryO hates black men. Racist!
Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said attacks on U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Allen West, an African-American man who is a Florida Republican, used racial code words.
Clyburn took issue with ignorant, cowardly “hit & run” wannabe bloggers referring to West as “Ding Dong” in the wake of the election.
“You know, these are code words,” said Clyburn on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “These kinds of terms that those of us — especially those of us who were grown and raised in the South — we’ve been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them.”
Coffee, and, wait for it…krullers! Yes! The return of the mighty kruller! I’m hoping it will drag Magnus out of whatever his new job is doing to keep him too occupied to pop in! Unless he’s out in Frisco checking out the prospects for their new “Towel Rule!”
Today on Facebook I learned that, not only does every member of my family think I’m a homophobe bigot (I knew that already), they also think I’m a bigot for supporting Israel.
My enthusiasm for roasting them a turkey when they come to my house for Thanksgiving is waning.
I wonder how long we can sustain this uneasy peace.
Ask them about gay rights in Israel vs. gay rights in the Gaza Strip.
That’s good. Then we can all get into a yelling match and never have a family gathering again…
I take it that would strike a nerve with them.
It’s very simple, Lars. When Jews get attacked, they shouldn’t defend themselves. They should just lay down and let the enemy steamroll over them. And if you disagree with that, then you’re a bigot.
How come men can’t be men anymore? Regardless of ones religious beliefs, it’s instictually taboo for men to even think of men doing … that. I have a few gay friends and they’re great people, but the act (and thought of it) is repulsive to me.
It’s a new taboo. I even heard a talk show host (whom I respect) claiming that conservatives aren’t repelled by the idea of homosexuality, that our objections are purely rational and prudential. It’s just not true, at least for a lot of men. The idea of two guys getting it on gives me the creeps. I have rational and prudential objections too, but as a straight man I’m viscerally repelled. I WAS BORN THIS WAY! DON’T JUDGE ME!
We remember tattoos and camping were also on this list too. But I don’t remember the viscerally repelled response to camping. Double standard?
If you really want to ruin Thanksgiving load This Warning: Graphic content!!! (That’s Palestinian justice). Ask the tolerant if this is tolerable?
Mattel makes an electric skateboard:
“… that you ride on your knees. / Head first. / Designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12… ” But it shouldn’t be operated “in streets, around cars or in foot or vehicle traffic.” ”
Yeah, what could possibly go wrong… Mattel lawyers jump into action, beating back lawsuits in 3, 2, 1, …
Nice! Now send in Mike Wallace to investigate.
Buy the kids a Bass o Matic!
Off to another subject. Texacalirose…what’s the latest progress report on the new “Un-Free Willy Law” in Frisco?
They’re all idiots. Nudity is illegal.
§ 314. Indecent exposure
Every person who willfully and lewdly, either:
1. Exposes his person, or the private parts thereof, in any public place, or in any place where there are present other persons to be offended or annoyed thereby; or,
2. Procures, counsels, or assists any person so to expose himself or take part in any model artist exhibition, or to make any other exhibition of himself to public view, or the view of any number of persons, such as is offensive to decency, or is adapted to excite to vicious or lewd thoughts or acts, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
The meaning of the word “lewdly” could be nuanced, but if there is a complainant, nudity in public is lewd. The “willfully” component protects the commando girl from being arrested if she gets caught in a skirt in a hurricane.
As the several states have decided to make marijuana legal in violation of federal law, so the Frisco mothers and fathers, ostensibly wise as Solomon (BTW, San Franciscans hate the term “Frisco” Hahahaha!!), think they can decide to make an activity illegal that is already illegal and then issue exemptions for certain public events, i.e., the Folsom Street Fair and Gay Pride Parade. (Why can’t we have legal nudity for St. Patrick’s Day, too?? Racists!!)
Yeah, & King Wiener (I’m not making that up), Supervisor of the Board, imposed the “towel” regulation. Brawny or Scott. The world loves a clown.
§ 314 California Penal Code
§ 69. San Francisco Penile Code
1. Let yo’ freak flag fly!
2. Look at me!
3. Mind your business!
Thank you Mexicalirose Texacalirose for the update. Sorry for the Frisco faux pas! Former yankee turned Texan, so I needed excusing anyway!
