Question for Nancy Pelosi and Wendy Davis, just because I’m curious: If the mother of that “viable tissue mass” in the picture below could somehow yank that thing out and kill it, would you fight for its right to do so?
I’ll bet if that baby elephant was hacked up and sucked out of there piece by piece Pelosi and Davis (insert any other name here who believes Margaret Sanger was the second coming of Christ) would cry for days and then go on TV pleading “WHO SPEAKS FOR DUMBO?” Melissa Harris-Perry would probably get so upset she’d have to use her tampon earrings to soak up all the tears.
Anyway, this post was mostly an excuse to announce that I’m taking a brief weekend vacation (anybody who asks “vacation from what?” will be banned… as soon as I figure out how to ban people). I’ll have the laptop in tow in case President Rambo McPeaceprize lights up Syria or something, but for the most part the family is going to Ohio to relax and hit up Cedar Point.
Check my Twitter feed over there to the left for any vacay updates, and I’ll see you all when I get back!
So what if your Big Mac costs $12, the unions want in!
Beginning a day of protests that organizers say will spread to 50 cities and 1,000 stores across the country, a crowd of chanting workers gathered Thursday morning at a McDonald’s in midtown Manhattan to call for higher wages and the chance to join a union.
About 500 people, including workers, activists, religious leaders, news crews and local politicians, gathered outside the McDonald’s on Fifth Avenue. The protesters chanted “Si Se Puede” (“Yes, We Can”) and “Hey, hey, ho, ho $7.25 has got to go,” holding signs saying “On Strike: Can’t Survive on $7.25,” referring to the federal minimum wage.
Nobody ever told these pinheads that making French fries isn’t really supposed to be a lifetime career option? There are a bunch of people who have a really rude awakening in store.
This is really all about unions wanting to get their porky snouts deeper into the fast food biz, because they’re losing membership everywhere else. But that’s what they do these days — bleed an industry dry and then move on to cripple another.
Keep in mind the man who has been found guilty of multiple counts of murder in the Ft. Hood massacre, and then read this memo reportedly sent by an Army lieutenant (it’s worded in such a way that it has to have come from “the top”) to three dozen subordinates in regards to who to be on the lookout for in an attempt to prevent that kind of horror from happening again.
The “group” Nidal Hasan, who has just been sentenced to death, was associated with isn’t even on the list.
Full time hiring is dying thanks to Obamacare and other factors, and the jobs “created” the administration keeps touting are mostly part-time jobs that people have two and three of each these days because of the economy. And now Barbara Boxer wants to kill those jobs off:
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Monday night she wants the minimum wage increased to $10, a nearly $3 boost from its current level of $7.25.
“I think about $10. I think that would be right,” Boxer said in an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show.”
Boxer said that a boost to the minimum wage would “make a huge difference.”
“People are struggling,” she said. “The difference between the very wealthy and the working poor has grown.”
Why not just make the minimum wage $100 an hour and really close the gap between rich and poor?
I couldn’t help but ask that question to nobody in particular last night. It occurred to me was after Kanye West went on an N-word and F-word rant that made the MTV bleep guy collapse from exhaustion.
Before that there was Miley Cyrus, who pleasured herself with a foam finger while the 20-year-old singer mock doggie-styled with 36-year-old Robin Thicke:
At some point later on that’s when it occurred to me that to a great degree, this same bunch is offended by conservatives. I guess it’s a compliment, really. Not that I’m stuffy or anything, but it’s just funny that the left pushes the meme that conservatives hate women and then looks the other way while young girls shriek approval as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke set the feminist movement back 30 years.
Lady Gaga summed up the evening best when she kicked off the show. I’ll never look into my toilet again without seeing this face staring back:
The day after thousands rallied to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, the National Mall looks like a trash dump.
The grass from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War II Memorial is covered Sunday with empty soda cans, water bottles, boxed lunches, newspapers, a broken chair and rally signs. The Reflecting Pool also was filled with trash.
Although the trash cans were full along the expanse, the attendees did not attempt to leave their garbage near the bins. Instead, they left everything on the grass where they stood.
An 88-year-old veteran of World War II was beaten to death outside the Eagles Lodge in Spokane, police say, and authorities are seeking two young males in the incident.
Friends identified the victim as Delbert Belton, and say he was sitting outside the lodge when he was attacked. No motive was offered.
Police say they received a call about an assault at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday and responded to find the victim sitting in his car with serious head injuries. The victim was taken to a hospital, and died Thursday morning.
Authorities are looking for two African American males of average build between the ages of 16 and 19 caught on video.
One of the attackers has been arrested, meaning the other probably won’t be far behind.
So when is Jamie Foxx going to wear an “I am Delbert” shirt at an awards show?
Obama is expected to issue a racially-charged statement expressing outrage at the murders of both Belton and Chris Lane… never.
Hey, because the economy is purring along like a well oiled machine and there’s not much else happening in the world, why not?
The White House will hold a closed-door roundtable discussion on issues facing bisexuals Sept. 23.
The event, described in an invitation by White House LGBT liaison Gautam Raghavan as a session focused on “issues of importance to the bisexual community,” was first reported Thursday by the Washington Blade.
“Participants and administration officials will discuss a range of topics including health, HIV/AIDS, domestic and intimate partner violence, mental health and bullying,” Raghavan wrote.
It would be awesome if Obama put Biden in charge of this meeting, just because you know something hilarious would happen. Not that we’d find out about it, because due to this administration’s transparency rules, it’s a closed-door meeting.
The following week the Obama administration will host a meeting about issues affecting tri and quad-sexuals, and October is the big White House summit with people who like to bang alpacas while watching clown porn.
