Quantum Quips #4: Jersey Shore, Whores & More!



Current mood: Still Feeling Mel Gibson-y
Category: News and Politics
 
CHELSEA CLINTON WEDDING OVER THE TOP

All this hoopla for Chelsea Clinton's $5 million wedding, flaunting it in the face of the poor. Honestly, she couldn't have had it in a small church with just the family? It's not like that marriage would last more than a week anyway. Sends a bad message considering the shape this country is in. It's the same message all the rich have to say, "screw you."

BILL MAHER SAYS IT'S TIME TO RETIRE THE WORD "DOUCHEBAG"


His new word is one that I heartily agree with: Breitbart.  For those of you living under a rock the past week or so, it's the name of a right wing blogger, Andrew Breitbart, who single-handedly frightened the Obama Administration into firing Shirley Sherrod by posting a video he edited to make it look like she was spouting racist dogma at a NAACP rally.  Breitbart refuses to apologize for what he did, despite the fact that this woman's life was turned upside down.  If I had a baseball bat handy, an aluminum one (for the nice sound it makes), I would test it out on this asshole.  So, from now on, if you fuck somebody over or ruin somebody's life, you will be forever referred to as a "Breitbart."  Not exactly bright, but certainly bart and maybe even fart.  Oh, and Andrew?  Have a big glass of kiss my ass!

SENATE BLOCKS CAMPAIGN SPENDING BILL 57-41
Of course, the no votes come from the Party of No since they are owned by the corporations that pushed for the supreme court decision to let special interests literally buy elections and politicians.  What else is new?  If you are for campaign finance reform, let your feelings come out at the polls this November.  I know I will.  It will be a cold, cold day in Death Valley in August before I ever would vote for a Republican unless of course I was lobotomized, twice, and had near alcohol poisoning from drinking a boat full of Tequila.  Oh, and speaking of Mexicans...

RACIST LAW TAKES EFFECT JULY 28TH IN THE AY-ZEE


Yeah, the Ay-Zee is going to become the DMZ after that.   There's a lot I love about Arizona, including the Ecotality Company, a progressive Green company which designs fuel cells and electric vehicles. I even liked the pre-Maverick, pre-Tea Party sucking John McCain.  Sadly, however, he has gone nuts like everybody else in Arizona's government.  Folks keep complaining about illegals stealing jobs, when 99.9% of the jobs the illegals do those same folks wouldn't be caught dead doing---you know, PHYSICAL LABOR.  Remember that shit?  Like changing diapers for rich bitches' babies, gardening for rich bitches, cleaning bathrooms for rich bitches, cleaning rich bitches who can't clean themselves...do I need to go on?  Keep in mind, you red neck lily white assholes who complain about Mexicans, this country was founded by immigrants.  Granted those same immigrants weren't as TAN, but immigrants they were.

BELL, CALIFORNIA CITY OFFICIALS PAYING THEMSELVES WAY, WAY TOO MUCH


Bell, California is a working class community mainly made up of immigrants who at best make about 30 grand a year.  Despite that, City officials are paying themselves up to 800 thousand a year, all the while doubling the cost for city services.  Are you fucking kidding me?  Thankfully, the city folk found out about it and are taking action.  The proper action, however, is to put these bastards in jail.  This is another sign that people just don't give a shit about one another.  They would rather fiddle while Rome burns and grab whatever money they can.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Yep, that's true, especially in Bell, Calif.  Remind me never to go there.

FIGHT OVER EMERGENCY SPENDING BILL FOR AFGHAN-NAM WAR

33 BILLION and change.  You can bet your bottom dollar that a very, very, very, very, very, very [did I say very?] small percentage of that will actually go to the soldiers on the ground or even in the air.  Most of that money will end up in the pockets of those private contractors building shit that only rich Arabs will be able to rent, a good chunk will go to the Pakistani Intelligence Service's hands while they plot to kill us and the rest will end up in Karzai's drug lord's purses.  I think it's time we say, enough is enough and say to Karzai and Co., "it's been real, it just hasn't been real fun."  The president is just being Bush Light (no, not the beer) by continuing the travesty that is Afghan-Nam.  BRING OUR BOYS AND GIRLS HOME---NOW!!!

and finally,

CAST OF JERSEY SHORE RINGS OPENING BELL AT NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE

You know you're in trouble as a country when the cast of Jersey Shore rings the opening bell at the NYSE.  Looking for some hemp...no, not to smoke...just to hang myself.

Peace and peas,
