OOPS! I Did It Again!

SORRY PEOPLE….AFTER CHECKING THIS……IT IS A HOAX….DAMMIT!

Funny reading anyway…a little wishful thinking……

 

Remember back in the day when Rep. Michele Bachmann was in the news almost daily…..she had some really great things to say…..but she has been a bit out of the news since 2012….her defunct presidential bid was the source of many jabs from the late night comedians….but not much in the past couple of years……but all that is about to change!

in case you missed the news while watching Ukraine or Iraq or The Simpsons or whatever had your attention this weekend……SHE”S BAAAAAAAAAAAK!

FORT COLLINS, Co.— Michele Bachmann, Republican congresswoman from Minnesota, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Fort Collins, Colorado for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. After reportedly running a red light and failing multiple sobriety tests, Bachmann was taken into custody and booked at the Fort Collins jail. She was released at 5 a.m. on $1,000 bail.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Rep. Bachmann was spending the holidays with her family in Colorado, and decided to indulge in cannabis consumption, following the state’s legalization of the drug on January 1st. Bachmann readily admitted to arresting officers that she had consumed marijuana that evening, but claimed that she did not know that it was illegal to drive under the influence.

What more can I say……Thank You MS Bachmann!

2014 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #16

Edition #16 begins and the moronic chatter just keeps coming…….morons and their mouths……it makes it all too easy to make fun of them….they are so stupid that they just cannot shut the Hell up….and for that…I THANK THEM!

1–First up in this edition is that lady running for office in Iowa that is proud of her ability to de-nut pigs……

The argument, made by Ernst in April, was flagged by The Plum Line’s Greg Sargent on Friday. It was part of Ernst laying out her opposition to Iowa expanding Medicaid. Here’s the key passage:

Participation in the broken Medicaid program has doubled over the past decade. Iowa has nearly 500,000 Medicaid enrollees. If the program is expanded, it is estimated the Medicaid population will grow by an additional 110,000 to 181,000 recipients who have no personal responsibility for their health and no accountability for the care provided.

I see she is on board with the GOP talking point of blaming the poor for being poor……what a great gal!

2–CNN’s wolf Blitzer asked a question that needed NOT to be asked…….

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked guest Jeffrey Toobin on Thursday why police weren’t instructed to “shoot to injure,” instead of kill.

“They often shoot to kill,” Blitzer said of police. “Why do they have to shoot to kill? Why can’t they shoot a warning shot in the air, scare someone off if they think they’re in danger. Why can’t they shoot to, injure, shall we say? Why do they have to shoot to kill?”

It might sound like a logical question…..but should not the question be….Does the PD have to shoot all the time?  Just my thought on this.

3–The actions of ISIS is bringing the right wing slugs out into the daylight…..like the guy from American Family Association…..families everywhere should be ashamed that they use that tag for their bullshit.

in Horowitz’s world, Obama is cheering on ISIS because he’s a Muslim who hates America.

“Obama is an anti-American radical and I’m actually sure he’s a Muslim, he certainly isn’t a Christian,” Horowitz said. “He’s a pretend Christian in the same way he’s a pretend American. It really is disgraceful. He’s inviting the terrorists to behead more Americans when he should be attacking them with our military. His whole agenda in office has been to defeat America, he lost the war in Iraq deliberately, he created a vacuum which ISIS has filled.”

To call this toad a gutless spineless prick is being unfair to gutless spineless pricks…..

4–And then we have all those tiny brain d/bags that are using Ferguson as some sort of soapbox……like Steve Deace………

Steve Deace linked the shooting of Michael Brown and the ensuing protests to what he sees as lax enforcement of immigration laws.

Deace cited the announcement that 22 Iowa county sheriffs are refusing to hold federal immigration detainees without a court order as evidence that local governments are “creating lawlessness.” This, he implied, could cause rioting if a released undocumented immigrant committed a murder, as people “take the law into their own hands,” causing law enforcement to “militarize up.”

What insult is enough to sum up the words of mental midgets like Deace?

5–You gotta love pea brains like Gov Rick “soon to be a felon” Perry…..he is a wealth of bullshit….

It’s a “very real possibility” that individuals with the extremist group ISIS may have crossed into the United States at the southern border, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday, though he added he doesn’t have any evidence.

Because the border is insecure, Perry said that “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” taking advantage of the situation. “I think it’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he told an audience at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

Sad Heritage use to be a respected think tank….now it’s white papers are best suited for toilet paper or to line a bird cage……

6–Sad to say that not all the morons on the Right are men….you would think women would be smarter than this………

RNC committeewoman Tamara Scott of Iowawarned that child migrants from Central America may have been “highly trained as warriors” and could “rise up against” U.S. citizens.

“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” said Scott, who is also Concerned Women for American’s Iowa state director and works as a lobbyist for the conservative group The Family Leader. “But we know back in our revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution. And for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans.”

I guess I have found another idiot woman to get in line with Mann Coulter, Malkin and a wealth of FOX News ladies (I use the term loosely)…….

7–Geez, do these religious types know no bounds?  This babbling buffoon is Bryan Fischer……of course ISIS is on everyone’s lips these days…but this twat is just amazing….

Asserting that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are “just like the Gay Gestapo is today” and that America is celebrating behavior that God calls an abomination while persecuting those who stand for God’s values, Fischer warned that “God eventually is going to run out of patience with the United States.”

And when that day comes, he said, God “will use pagan armies to discipline his people if they turn from him in rebellion and disobedience and descend into debauchery,” pointing to the rise of ISIS to raise the possibility that “God will use the pagan armies of Allah to discipline the United States for our debauchery”:

How do mental midgets like this exist……if he is any indication on how a religious person should talk…then count me OUT!

8–Now for one of the biggest douche bags on the tube….Dinesh D’Souza…..

Filmmaker and President Obama truther, Dinesh D’Souza, likened James Foley’s beheading to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri on Thursday while appearing on NewsMaxTV’s “Steve Malzberg Show.”

“The common thread between ISIS and what’s going in Ferguson is you have these people who basically believe that to correct a perceived injustice, it’s perfectly okay to inflict all types of new injustices,” said D’Souza on NewsMaxTV’s Steve Malzberg Show. “Behead guys who had nothing to do with it. Go and loot shops from business owners who were not part of the original problem whatsoever. And all of this is then licensed by the left and licensed to some degree by the media.”

I cannot find words strong to illustrate my contempt for pricks like this one.

9–There is one person that seems to make every edition of B3…..and that idiot is Louis Gohmert of Texas…..he amazes me constantly with the most mindless comments one person could make….and guess what?  He is at it….again!

Republican congressman warned Americans that President Obama would not be able to adequately protect the nation from the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) — the terrorist organization that has taken over large parts of Iraq — because the administration’s policy is being guided and influenced by “Muslim brothers.”

Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Wilkow Majority,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued, “if you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”

Is there something in the water in Texas that produces screaming morons like Gohmert?

With that Edition #16 comes to an end……but never fear it is not the last…..we still have at least four months of the year left and we know these assholes cannot be silent for very long……

Edition #17 coming to a blog near you…..stay tuned and stay vigilant….

Who You Calling A Racist?

The situation in Ferguson and Staten Island and Louisiana have re-opened the conversation on racism…….of course no one will admit to being a racist, not even the hard core racist..but there is some scientific proof that we all maybe a little on the racist side…….

(Newser) – As America once again examines its race relations, Nicholas Kristof writes that it’s not the guys in white sheets we need to worry about. Instead of “overt racists,” we should instead focus on the “broad swath of people who consider themselves enlightened, who intellectually believe in racial equality, who deplore discrimination, yet who harbor unconscious attitudes that result in discriminatory policies and behavior,” he writes in the New York Times. That’s where the conversation needs to start.

Kristof cites a number of studies to bolster his point—video game players (including Kristof himself) are quicker to fire on a black person than a white person, doctors dole out more pain medication to white patients with a broken leg, etc.—but he stresses that the cause isn’t hopeless. The nation has made huge progress on race over the decades, and good training and smart policies (police cameras, for example) can help. But we must acknowledge that “racial stereotyping remains ubiquitous,” he writes. And the main problem is “people who believe in equality but who act in ways that perpetuate bias and inequality.” Click for his full column.

ME?  I will admit that I am a bit of a racist……but mine is a deep desire to understand what occurred in Vietnam and why…..the racial thing is a side effect of war……….I am not a violent person so I am not going out and commit some crime against those that I do not like or trust……and I try to curb my reactions and in my declining years it has gotten better….I do not want to take anything away from people…….mine is more that I search for the son-of-a-bitch that tortured me in 1968.

Please read the full article and then tell me what you think…is it accurate or not?

To further this line of thought….the HufPo has a great study about race and the media….it is well worth the read ….if you have the time…

Please take the time to read the articles……I think that we need to have a serious conversation on race……..I do not believe that we are having that as of today.

Nine years since Hurricane Katrina: has anything changed? |

My longest day was the 13 hours and 33 minutes that Hurricane Katrina lasted…..I was in the direct path…rode it out with my father and then went to work as a first responder trying to get people help……the day after Xmas 2005 I was thrown off a ladder and hit concrete…broke my right leg in 3 places…and my life will never be the same….constant pain and agony…….

I bring this up because Katrina happened 9 years ago on the 29 August….today!

Many people seem to think that all is right with the world in the devastated area of Katrina……maybe not so….please read….

 

Nine years since Hurricane Katrina: has anything changed? |.

SCOTUS And Cops

With the news for the last month the police are under a microscope and their tactics are under criticism….deaths of unarmed people for various reasons are not tolerable in a society that is proud of its freedoms and its society……there is a growing concern that the police are continue to be unaccountable for their actions…….

(Newser) – It’s possible that a grand jury will find enough evidence to conclude that Officer Darren Wilson should go on trial for the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. But even if that happens, don’t expect Wilson to be found guilty of excessive use of force, writes law professor Erwin Chemerinsky in the New York Times. Why? Look to the Supreme Court, which in recent years has made it all but impossible to convict police officers and prosecutors, writes Chemerinsky, whose essay is headlined, “How the Supreme Court Protects Bad Cops.”

Chemerinsky runs through several cases, including one in May in which the court found that officers acted reasonably when they fired 15 shots at a car during a high-speed chase, killing the driver and a passenger. He also cites a 2011 decision by Antonin Scalia, who “ruled that a government officer can be held liable only if ‘every reasonable official’ would have known that his conduct was unlawful.” These decisions and others have given cops a nearly impenetrable “immunity” from citizens who have been wronged, writes Chemerinsky. “They mean that the officer who shot Michael Brown and the City of Ferguson will most likely never be held accountable in court,” he concludes. “How many more deaths and how many more riots will it take before the Supreme Court changes course?” Click for his full column.

What will it take for society to demand that the police take responsibility for their actions and the deaths that they are committing almost daily?

Bang! Bang! Shoot’em Up!

Okay we have heard all the horror stories about gun violence…..of course the biggie in the last month was the death of the teen in Ferguson…..and most recently the shooting death of a gun instructor in Arizona at the hands of a very young girl who accidentally killed him when a Uzi got out of control she was firing…..

But there is another story of there that has been reported and yet not much questioning has gone on…….the article……..

(Newser) – Another high-profile police shooting is in the news, this time because a crew member of the reality TV show Cops got killed while filming it. Omaha police also killed a robbery suspect at a Wendy’s restaurant during last night’s shooting, reports the Omaha World-Herald. It all unfolded as officers responded to a robbery in progress at the restaurant. Three officers entered the Wendy’s and opened fire when the suspect fired his weapon at them, says the police chief. The suspect’s weapon turned out to be a pellet gun. As the wounded suspect fled outside, the officers continued shooting and struck Cops crew member Bryce Dion, who was there filming, reports AP.

“Officers had no choice but to respond in the manner in which they did,” said chief Todd Schmaderer, who reviewed Cops‘ video of the shooting, reports KETV. Both Dion, 38, and suspect Cortez Washington, 32, died of their injuries at the hospital. The TV show has been filming in the city for most of the summer. “Bryce Dion was a long term member of the Cops team and very talented and dedicated person,” says a statement from Langley Productions. “We mourn his passing.” A grand jury will investigate the shooting.

I have a few questions that hopefully someone will ask……it was a toy gun that shot plastic bullets, right?  okay it looks like a real gun but when the bullets come out is there a loud gun-like report?  I heard that the TV guy was killed in the return fire of the police……do they not know what a gun sounds like when it is fired?  Yes, the confusion of the moment, I understand that………… but should the police be trained to recognize the sound of a real gun as compared to a toy gun.

This is a tragic accident, no doubt….but there are questions that need answers……

Iberia Parish: Where’s Al?

We all know all  about Ferguson thanx to the media and thanx to people like Al Sharpton…..I find it uplifting that there are those ‘leaders’ that feel it necessary to force the public to address such injustice……but there is a problem at least form my point of view………the problem is selective concern……

(Newser) – Louisiana State Police say Victor White III died after shooting himself while handcuffed in the back of a police car in March, an assertion backed up by the Iberia Parish coroner’s office, reports NBC News. But White’s family isn’t buying the suicide story—mainly, they say, because White had a new baby with his longtime girlfriend, a steady job, and possible college plans, and because details in the recently released coroner’s report contradict the police report. “You can’t make me understand how my son took his left hand, when he was handcuffed behind the back, and shot himself,” Rev. Victor White II tells NBC. “I don’t believe a thing they’re saying at this point.”

White and a friend were reportedly picked up by the police after reports of a fight outside a local gas station; the station manager says the two were inside the store when the fight broke out. Cops let White’s friend go, but what happened next is where the story gets murky. A police statement said an “uncooperative,” handcuffed White “produced a handgun” and shot himself in the back while in custody, even though cops said no weapon was found on White during two recorded searches before the shooting. The coroner agrees that White shot himself but says the 22-year-old was shot in the front, that there were scratches on White’s face (the police said there was no physical altercation with officers), and that the bullet went through his right chest and out his left armpit—White’s family says he was left-handed, making the suggested scenario hard for them to believe. Click for more details.

Where are the activists that thought Ferguson needed to be brought to the forefront…..where are they for this incident?

Full Disclosure:  I do not watch the Rev’s show…..to me he is still a preacher and delivers a sermon every night not a news show……I am sure he has covered this issue on his MSNBC show….but where is he in person?  He had NO problem flying into Ferguson to help lead the opposition…….

I recently read a piece about Al Sharpton that I tend to agree with……check it out……..

http://www.salon.com/2014/08/26/al_sharpton_does_not_have_my_ear_why_we_need_new_black_leadership_now/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

Give me your thoughts on the piece or the post in general……Me?  I am beginning to think that Al goes where the ratings will be greater not necessarily the most pressing of stories….I may be wrong……but that is yet to be seen.
