I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     KY lawmakers deny climate change using dinosaurs and Mars.

And of course — in case you can’t already predict where this is going — they had their facts all wrong and completely failed at making any coherent points whatsoever.

In the Republican corner, we have Brandon Smith who says Earth is the same temperature as Mars, and in the Democratic corner, we have Kevin Sinnette whose argument rests on the planet being just fine after the dinosaurs were wiped out.

My head hurts.

     Obama “Presidential Library” Outhouse float not offensive because most people liked it.

Another Presidential Library Outhouse made an appearance at a 4th of July parade in Norfolk, Nebraska because apparently this is a cute new thing to do?  

We can try to figure out the motivations later, but one of the organizers of the parade, Rick Konopasek, says 95% of people liked it so why should they have barred the float for the other 5%?

Clearly catering to the majority has always worked well for all people involved in this country.  The majority is always right and we never need a quick voice of reason from a minority faction to start shifting public opinion the other way.

     Anti-environmentalists modifying trucks to produce excess exhaust.

Today in Ignorant Angry White Men, there’s a new-ish tactic to show your distaste for Obama where you alter your vehicle’s exhaust to spew copious amounts of black smut, because polluting the environment, exposing your kids to cancer, and flooding nearby property with black clouds is a small price to pay for showing Obama how you really feel.

Also, in case you forgot, Ignorant Angry White Men ain’t shit, ain’t never was shit, ain’t never gon be shit, and this is the most ridiculous shit I have ever seen.

     Should Ruth Bader Ginsburg step down from the Supreme Court?

After her blistering dissent in response to the Hobby Lobby ruling, Ginsburg has further cemented her status as Queen Empress of the Left, but another topic that has previously been whispered is now being discussed outright:  Should she step down?  I was completely blindsided by the notion, but after an article in Salon  yesterday, I’ve started to see the logic.

If you don’t have time to read any details, it boils down to this:  She’s 81.  If a Republican wins the White House in 2016, she could be well over 90-years-old by the time another Democrat is in office to replace her with a liberal judge.

     Three rebuttals for Hobby Lobby supporters.

The dust is settling around the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby yesterday, and I see a few points repeatedly making appearances.  

  • The ruling is only for closely-held companies, so calm down.
  • Hobby Lobby employees are still free to use whatever contraceptive they want, just not funded by their employer
  • Religious freedom should mean you don’t have to pay for things that are against your religion

Let’s tear them down quickly, because a lot of people are making it more difficult than it really is.

     Hobby Lobby got the ruling they wanted. Because corporations can have religious beliefs now.

In light of the recent Hobby Lobby ruling by the Supreme Corporate-Ass-Kissing Court of the United States, I thought it prudent to remind y’all what I had to say about this back in December 2012 when their case was proceeding through the lower courts.

Why is one company’s interpretation of the Bible more important than another?  If I wanted to use the Bible to fire all the Black people in my company, can I do so under the Supreme Court’s new ruling?  This is a hot ass mess.

     NRA using gay couples to justify opposition to new domestic violence / stalking legislation.

Alright, NRA, how about this.  How about we DON’T trot out my gay sisters & brothers like show ponies to make a weak case against a common sense bill that everybody else wants?  This is a very simple bill with a very simple goal:  people convicted of stalking or domestic violence should not be able to buy guns because those people are far more likely to kill someone.

Anything that causes fewer guns to be sold is a major concern for the NRA, so they’ve painted a picture using a gay couple to point out why this legislation is a bad idea.  You know.  Because liberals hate guns and love gay people, so it should be an easy way to get folks agreeing with the NRA.

     GA Republican Jody Hice: “Most people think Islam is a religion, it’s not. “

image

It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component. But it’s much larger. It’s a geo-political system that has governmental, financial, military, legal and religious components. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected (under U.S. law).”

(source)

Alright, let’s travel down this road of bigotry with him (because that’s what it is).  Let’s assume that he’s correct in his thinking, and because Islam encompasses so much more than picking a god and going to worship him once a week, it should not be protected under US law.

Fine.  We’ll need to get rid of Catholics as well.
