Thoughts Without Posts–2013–#3

Once again I have made more notes than I have ideas for posts so keeping if my tradition I am posting the ones that did not make it into a full blown post…….

1–This is as sick as the teacher that got 30 days in jail for raping a student…..

An Iowa pastor who was arrested on 60 counts of suspected sexual exploitation of minors got zero jail time.

The pastor, Brent Girouex, believed that praying while having sex with the boys would cure them of being gay.  He’s admitted to having sex with four boys, but at least eight have come forward.

Girouex attempt to cure one boy between 25 and 100 times.

2–Did you know that Pope Gregory III (731-741) was born in Syria……..

3–The Voyager 1 has officially become the first man-made object to cross out of the solar system and into interstellar space—no, really this time. After a series of mistaken and controversial reports, NASA today published a study concluding that the probe definitively crossed the threshold of charged particles and magnetic fields that marks the edge of the Sun’s influence sometime last August, Space.com reports. Researchers figured that out based on measurements Voyager recorded from a recent solar eruption. “We literally jumped out of our seats,” the lead researcher says. “Voyager has boldly gone where no probe has gone before, marking one of the most significant technological achievements in the annals of the history of science,” NASA’s science chief boasted in a statement. “Perhaps some future deep-space explorers will catch up with Voyager, our first interstellar envoy, and reflect on how this intrepid spacecraft helped enable their future.”

4–whatever happened to those ads for “restless leg syndrome” and the meds for it?

5–Here is an idea—-Google is getting involved in life and we could use thgeir help….they have a driver-less car, Google glasses, etc…….do you think that their Brainiacs could come uo with an adequate algorithm for productive Congress?

6–Who will be the next major celebrity meltdown?  Beiber or Cyrus?

7– If you hear a dull roar, it’s probably just the collective scream of science buffs the world over. NASA’s Curiosity rover has found water in Mars’ soil, and the BBC describes it as a “surprising amount.” The find occurred at the hands of Curiosity, which scooped up a bit of dirt, heated it to 1535 degrees Fahrenheit, and found about 2% of that soil, by weight, was H2O, bound to other minerals. The news came from a series of five papers published in Science yesterday, and it’s knowledge future astronauts can make real use of. “If you think about a cubic foot of this dirt and you just heat it a little bit—a few hundred degrees—you’ll actually get off about two pints of water—like two water bottles you’d take to the gym,” explains Curiosity researcher Laurie Leshin. And it’s not just the amount, but the extent, that’s interesting: “This dirt on Mars … seems to be about the same everywhere you go,” says Leshin, meaning those astronauts could “quite easily extract water from almost anywhere.” But Gizmodo shares a bit of a buzzkill. “We didn’t find evidence of organic molecules in the soil. So, this doesn’t have a very big bearing on the life on Mars discussion,” Leshin explains. And the Guardian has a warning for those future visitors: The soil they’d be exposed to also contains perchlorate, which hinders thyroid function.

8–If this was the UK we could dissolve a dysfunctional Congress and start over….maybe we should consider a change……..

9–I had rather hear 1000 Miley Cyrus stories than one more piece of crap about the royals and that darn baby!

My daughter always sez…..”must be Hell inside your mind”……….she has no idea…….

All this is from my mind to yours…….

You Have Got To Be Good At Something

Most of my regular visitors know that I live in a state of denial….Mississippi!

We are the most obese, most religious, most conservative, the poorest….in other words Mississippi is at the top of most worst lists and the bottom of most best lists…..I just found out that Mississippi spends the most time on porn sites we average 20 minutes a day and our most popular search word for these sights is “teens”…..a great day for the state……

And then there was this story about the state of Mississippi…….

It’s the stuff of, well, nightmares. Two absolutely massive alligators caught in Mississippi within just hours of each other. On Sunday in the Mississippi River, a 13 ft, 5.5 inch long, 723 lbs alligator was caught. That team of five hunters said they thought it was the Loch Ness Monster at first. (Via WBBH) And just hours later — a 13 ft., 4.5 inch alligator weighing 727 lbs. It was that hunter’s very first catch. (Via NBC) “He broke all the lines we could get in him. Finally got a snare on him … all in all probably took us four hours to actually catch him from the time we saw him.” (Via WLBT) So, that second gator now holds the record for being the largest alligator ever caught by a Mississippi hunter. It was previously 697.5 lbs. And, alligator hunting season is still well underway so…expect…more nightmares soon. (The Clarion-Ledger) The record for longest gator caught by hunters in the state still stands — 13ft 6.5 inches long.

There you have it……..does this create an air of coolness….would you want to visit?

Thoughts Without Posts–2013–#3

Just a few days away from the mind numbing international situations and the babble of idiots on the campaign trial……

Once again I have made enough notes to choke a small horse….sadly some could not become posts and that is why I have these posts so the rest of the blogsphere can see just how a mind works……

1–I love it when FOX trots out their experts……..this one was a medical expert……

A Fox News medical expert on Tuesday argued that President Barack Obama’s administration was wrong to force gender equality for health insurance rates because men “only have the prostate,” while women “have the breasts, they have the ovaries.”

“Look, it’s not bias, I’m not saying this as a man,” Fox News Medical A-Team contributor Dr. David Samadi told the hosts of Fox & Friends. “They go through a lot of preventive screenings, they give birth, they have the whole mammogram, the Pap smear. Guys, we don’t like to go to doctors, right? Seventy percent of health care decisions are made by women. In my own practice, I see it’s the women who bring the guys, who say, go get screened.”

You gotta feel sorry for a moron.

2–I remember when there was one flavor of vodka—VODKA.

3–There was a time in the world when beer tasted like …..of all things BEER!

4–North Carolina has been in the news many times this year…..first it is their war on women and then their war on the voter….but this one is just plain silly……

A bill that could send women to prison for going topless in public appears headed for approval by the North Carolina legislature.

The Republican-backed bill headed to a floor vote in the House would amend the state’s indecent exposure law to expand the legal definition of “private parts” to explicitly include “the nipple, or any portion of the areola, or the female breast.”

Depending on whether such exposure is judged to be “for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire,” the woman could be charged with a felony, punishable by up to six months in prison for first-time offenders. More mundane exposure would be a misdemeanor meriting up to 30 days in jail.

Co-sponsor Rep. Rayne Brown, R-Davidson, told members of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that her bill was triggered by topless rallies promoting women’s equity that were held during the last two years in Asheville. Though her district is more than a two-hour drive from Asheville, Brown said her constituents are concerned whether the topless protests are legal.

5–Remember Newtown?  Remember all those gun nuts screaming that the government was trying to form a registry of gun owners, remember that?  Will guess what?  There is a list!

The National Rifle Association has frightened Americans about the prospect of a federal registry of firearm owners, but the NRA itself has secretly created a database with information from tens of millions of Americans who do not hold a membership.

The NRA has spent years secretly collecting information about gun owners from state and local offices and has built the country’s largest privately held database of current, former and prospective gun owners, according to a BuzzFeed report.

News of the NRA’s database is particularly surprising, since the pro-gun agency heavily protested the idea of a federal gun registry after the Newtown massacre led to debates on increased background checks. Even though 91 percent of Americans supported universal background checks, lawmakers were unable to push such an initiative through Congress. At the time, the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre instilled a widespread fear that universal background checks would lead to a national registry of gun owners, which critics said could lead to taxes on guns or confiscation.

Is that acceptable?  This is just as bad as anything the government would do……..but it will go unchallenged……why?  It is the NRA and they do NOTHING wrong!

6–There was a time when a 5 o’clock shadow was a bad thing.

7–I ask this one almost every time and have yet to get a reasonable answer……so I try again.  Why do so many women want to be blonde?

Thoughts Without Posts–2013 #2

Finally, my two days of mental cleansing……leaving the silliness and the absurdities that is politics behind…….

Every day I make hundreds of notes and some are lucky enough to make it into posts….then there are others that just do not hold the fascination and I opt out making them into posts…….and that brings us to this post……

1–Why do so many women want to be blonde?

2–Where is sharia law a threat to US citizens?  Is not forced living by christian religious law the same thing?

3–GOP is trying hard to make real change impossible and in doing so they making it inevitable.

4–Is it me or is reality TV becoming more and more white trash?

5–”a test for a moral society is how it treats its children”…….the US is failing.

6–If you follow the POPE on Twitter then you will do less time in Purgatory……

7–politicians and diapers need changing often and for the same reason…….

8–Let’s be honest….the GOP wants to appear to be moving on immigration without doing anything……

9–Who decided that Khaki was the universal color of geek-dom?

10-Who decided that orange would be the international color of decaf?

11-Is there a correlation on the amount of endorphins in the brain and the loss of reason?

12-Difference between dumb and stupid…..dumb ain’t funny…..Lewis Black.

My mind will not shut down….it is always calculating or formulating so there are thoughts written everywhere……stay tuned…..more to come…..

His Worst Day Ever!

It is that time again….that time when I step back from politics and craziness and post on some more light -hearted situations…..

We all have had that worst day ever….like when you discover your wife is having an affair with your brother or your girl breaks up with you but still wants to be friends or some low life steals your first car……well you get the idea….there are days that just…SUCK!

The Hufpo has reported on a guy that is having one of those days……

An Israeli man was hospitalized Friday after a snake bit his genitals while he was on the toilet.

A 35-year-old unnamed man from northern Israel was visiting his parents in the Lower Galilee town of Nofit when he went to the bathroom.

While on the toilet, he got the surprise of his life: A snake crept up from inside the bowl and bit his penis, according to The Times of Israel’s report, based on a television news story.

After the bite, the man “ran from the room in horror” and was later taken to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center for treatment.

Hospital staff at Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center confirmed the snake-bite story to The Huffington Post.

“There will undoubtedly be bite marks on the area in question,” a representative from the hospital said, per Australia’s Daily Telegraph. “The snake was not poisonous. The man is currently under observation pending additional test results and as soon as we get the results, he will be able to go home.”

“This is the first time I’ve seen a snake bite like this,” one of the paramedics who treated the man added. “Luckily, all tests seem fine and the man is feeling well.”

Such an incident might seem quite out of the ordinary, unbelievable even, but it has reportedly happened before.

Back in 2009, a 51-year-old Taiwanese man sustained minor injuries when he was bitten on the penis by a snake while on the toilet, the Britain’s Telegraph previously reported. The snake was believed to have entered the latrine through a crack in the septic tank.

“It was the snake’s signal for help when it bit me,” the man, identified as Lin, was quoted as saying. “If it hadn’t maybe it would have been stuck in the septic tank and either suffocated or starved to death. It looked like an accident but it was actually fate.”

I had to read this twice and each time I could not stop laughing…..2 thoughts immediately came to mind…..first, OUCH!  And then….who would he get to suck out the poison?

Do you have any thoughts to add?

2013 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #2

Just a post that lets my readers know just how moronic politicians can be when they open their slimy mouths…….

First up is the candidate of Lt Gov of Virginia……

Virginia Lt. Gov candidate E.W. Jackson (R) said that Americans “should remember” the country’s history of slavery, but “not wallow in it,” the Hampton Roads Daily Press reports.

He stressed that it was “not slavery that eroded the black family but government policies in the 1960s.”

Said Jackson: “In 1960 most black children were raised in two parent monogamous families. By now, by this time, we only have 20 percent of black children being raised in two parent monogamous families with a married man and woman raising those children. It wasn’t slavery that did that. It was government that did that trying to solve problems that only God can solve, and that only we as human beings can solve.”

And then another Repub has to open his ignorant mouth…..

In a speech Monday on the House floor, Gingrey stressed his continued support for the Defense of Marriage Act — which defines marriage as only union between a man and a woman — and suggested that children need to be carefully taught about the traditional roles of their genders:

GINGREY: You know, maybe part of the problem is we need to go back into the schools at a very early age, maybe at the grade school level, and have a class for the young girls and have a class for the young boys and say, you know, this is what’s important. This is what a father does that is maybe a little different, maybe a little bit better than the talents that a mom has in a certain area. And the same thing for the young girls, that, you know, this is what a mom does, and this is what is important from the standpoint of that union which we call marriage.”

Continuing with stupid……this from a think tank…..the American Center For Democracy……..

While many of the fires that have scorched millions of acres and destroyed thousands of homes in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and other states have been identified as arson, none have been publicly attributed to criminal or terrorist groups, despite the presence of Mexican gangs and large number of other illegals in our Western states … How many Tzarnaevs are hiding in Colorado’s woods?

Could any organization that makes such ignorant claims be called a “Think Tank”?

And then there are candidates that have NO scruples and make wild claims…….

Montgomery County GOP Chairman Jim Allen emailed the website Republican News Watch with his remarks about former Miss America Erika Harold, who will challenge incumbent Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) in the Republican primary for Illinois’ 13th congressional district.

“Rodney Davis will win and the love child of the D.N.C. will be back in Shitcago by May of 2014 working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires,” he wrote. “… Now, miss queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS.”

And then there are politicians that use conspiracy nut jobs as fact…….New Hampshire state Rep. Stella Tremblay (R)……

Just a week after the Boston bombings, the birther lawmaker had posted a link a link to an Alex Jones video on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page. Tremblay suggested that Saudi nationals, Secretary of State John Kerry and “black ops” soldiers had conspired to carry out the attack.

Recently Speaker has been embarrassed by the failure of a farm bill….but the best best of the defeat was all the crap spread by idiots like Rep. Gohmert of Texas…….when addressing the food stamp issue within the bill said…..

On the other hand, Gohmert said, poor people were using food stamps to buy food that other Americans could not afford. He claimed his “broken-hearted” constituents had repeatedly told him they had seen people use food stamps to buy king crab legs.

“Because he does pay income tax, he doesn’t get more back than he pays in, he is actually helping pay for king crab legs when he can’t pay for them for himself,” Gohmert explained.

“How can you begrudge somebody who feels that way,” he added. “How can you begrudge anyone who steps up on behalf of constituents who feel that way. We don’t want anyone to go hungry, and from the amount of obesity in this country by people who we’re told do not have enough to eat, it does seem like we could have a debate about this issue without allegations about wanting to slap down or starve children.”

These people just do not realize how moronic they sound every time they make a statement like this…….they just get more pathetic…..

I lost a lot of respect for Red State’s Eric Erickson when he jumped on the idiot bandwagon about women becoming the family bread winners……and then there is Jeb Bush, who I thought would be a good choice for the GOP in the future…..but likie Eric he had to be stupid……..

Jeb Bush has created a stir with remarks he made during a speech on immigration, in which he said that women who immigrate to America are more fertile than women who are born in the country.

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans, over the last 20 years,” Bush said. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”

And then there is another GOP state rep that just had to show their ignorance…………the debate on the new abortion bill being debated in Texas……this rep said with a straight face……..

Texas Republican (of course) Rep. Jodie Laubenberg, who had this to say while denying an exception for rape in the draconian abortion bill Texas Republicans (of course) are in the process of jamming through the legislative process:

In the emergency room, they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out.

And to beat all….she is……a WOMAN.

Even organizations pass on crap information like this woman who works for an anti-abortion place……. Cleveland’s Womankind “maternal and prenatal care” center,

“It sounds like the morning after pill. If you have intercourse and then take this pill and it causes a period to come on or something, or bleeding. It’s like having kind of an abortion.” She adds, “That could harm you. It really could harm you … You could hemorrhage from anything like that.”

Finally, we have a completely ignorant statement on the SCOTUS DOMA ruling……

“I think this is the conundrum and gets back to what you were saying in the opening — whether or not churches should decide this. But it is difficult because if we have no laws on this people take it to one extension further. Does it have to be humans?

“You know, I mean, so there really are, the question is what social mores, can some social mores be part of legislation? Historically we did at the state legislative level, we did allow for some social mores to be part of it. Some of them were said to be for health reasons and otherwise, but I’m kind of with you, I see the thousands-of-year tradition of the nucleus of the family unit. I also see that economically, if you just look without any kind of moral periscope and you say, what is it that is the leading cause of poverty in our country? It’s having kids without marriage. The stability of the marriage unit is enormous and we should not just say oh we’re punting on it, marriage can be anything.”

So goes another week of douche bags attempting to be relevant….they fail every time!

Reminds me of a quote by John Stuart Mill…….I am not saying that all conservs are stupid, only that most of the people I know that are stupid are conserv”…….

2013 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #1

In the past I use to post what I called anal-ocitys or anal statements made by our public figures……comments and statements too moronic to let them lie…….last year was the last time I would give the Assie Award…..for you see I spent so much time posting that statements that it takes away from the work I try to do on my site…..so this year I will be lumping a massive amount of stupid in one post at a time….the Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon…….

My fist post of this subject is a doozey……

First up, is the candidate for Lt. gov of Virginia……..

Rev. E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominee to be the next lieutenant governor of Virginia, has a well-documented history of saying pretty crazy things. He thinks gays are “ikky.” He compared a non-discrimination bill to “a pedophiles’ rights bill.” He accused President Obama of using NASA to “expand Islam.” He believes yoga is a gateway to Satan. And in his 2008 book, Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life, Jackson warned that “satanic rock,” rap music, and modern-day “witchcraft” were leading to a societal breakdown.

Next up is former (thank God) Rep. Alan West of Florida…….

On Michael Savage’s radio show Savage Nation on Thursday, Fox News host and former Florida congressman Allen West blamed women being allowed in combat roles in the military for the ongoing controversy over sexual assault in the force, and alleged that “an assault against the United States military” is underway.

Then there was Godly intervention………..

In the first days of the year, some House Republicans launched an attempt to ditch John Boehner as speaker—but he survived a vote after a number of colleagues said they’d spent the night praying, and God told them to let Boehner keep the job, notes the Washington Post in a report spotted by the Daily Intelligencer. Rep. Steve Southerland, for instance, looked to the Biblical story of Saul and David, in which David gets two chances to kill the king, but lets him go. The vote, however, was still perilously close for Boehner; had his votes been slightly fewer, the sitting speaker would have faced a second ballot for the first time in almost a century.

Has anyone ever told the morons in the GOP to STOP talking….they are doing the party NO favors….and then there is the senator from the great state of Wisconsin…….one Ron Johnson………

Johnson said people who value their local community need to get involved to help turn around what he called a “culture of entitlement” to benefits such as Medicare, Social Security, food stamps and other programs he said have led to:

The increase of the out-of-wedlock birth rate from 7.5 percent in the 1960s to more than 40 percent now.

The increase of the out-of-wedlock birth rate in African-American communities from more than 20 percent to more than 70 percent in the same time frame.

More than 46 million Americans relying on food stamps.

“In this nation, it’s the cultural tipping point that drives the financial one,” Johnson said. “I believe we have developed in this national a culture of entitlement and dependency. I think it’s undeniable.”

They are just making it way too easy for the Democrats……especially when some assclown says something like this……….

A Texas Congressman has come out in favor of an extreme abortion ban because, according to him, male fetuses masturbate.

RH Reality Check’s Adele Stan reports that Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) said that fetuses at 15-weeks “stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?” Burgess is a former OB-GYN.

And he is a doctor…..makes one proud, huh?

Meanwhile some want to go back 4 or 5 years……we have Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC)………

At first, Duncan shied away from directly addressing the so-called “birther” concerns, simply adding that Americans had a chance to vote Obama out in November and, in his belief, regrettably didn’t do so. Wiles then asked: “If we know they are lying about all these other things, why not go back and say ‘Well, maybe the first scandal was a lie too?’”

“There you go,” Duncan agreed. “I’m all with you. So let’s go back and revisit some of these things because Americans have questions about not only the IRS scandal but also about the president’s validity.”

Personally, I want the Babbling Buffoons to keep talking….they make too easy for people like me that cannot stand STUPID!

I have sign over my desk……”can’t fix stupid!”

The one quote that applies here…..”Stupidity Is The Deliberate Cultivation Of Ignorance”……..and the GOP is full of STUPID!  Thank you make my day!

Random Thought 18Jun13

We all have heard the atrocities that are being committed in Syria and our Neocon lawmakers that are bitching about the 93,000 Syrians that have been killed……..finally the imaginary “red line” has been crossed and the US will act…….the first step is to send arms, small arms, to the Syrian opposition…..now my thought is…..just how will the killings stop with more4 weapons introduced into the conflict?  Just who among you thinks that war will be a better place with even more weapons for both sides to use on each other?

                                                

This is not going to end well for the US!

Thoughts Without Posts–2013

My day is full of reading and watching the news and I make pages of notes daily….the problem is that not all of them make into a post for my readers consumption…so from time to time I will put those thoughts without posts into a collection every now and then…..

I hope you guys enjoy these thoughts…..

1–Recently I was visiting the local WalMart and the urge struck me….the urge to visit the “Oval Office”…….I tried to finish my shopping before I succumb to the urge…..but if soon it became an emergency that I could not suppress the urge so off I went…..I checked the restroom out….it was clean and no whack-a-doodles hanging……I sat and dreamed of happier days and when finished I reached for the TP….I know what you are thinking….there was NONE….WRONG!  There was a roll but it was 2  inches wide and as smooth as a page from Cosmo…..I shall stop here and let your imagination finish the tale…..

2–Why is it that religious people (I use the term loosely) think that a sign on the front door that reads…”DO NOT Disturb…. I don’t buy, listen or care……If disturbed there will be a four letter response”….and they knock any way…..like it does not apply to them because they are doing God’s work….they left with their feelings hurt and probably a collection of new vulgar words that they did not know existed.

3–I think the US Congress building should be renamed …..The OUTHOUSE….with an accompanying sign that reads….”Last Person Out At Day’s End, Please Flush”

4–There should be a law that when talking one your $800 iPhone in public it cannot be on speaker…..you are not that interesting that the rest of us wants to listen to both sides of your mundane conversation.

5–Is Superman in that much demand that we need yet another re-make of his story?

6–Is it really news when someone get  their stomach banded?

7–Why does a snowstorm need a name?

8–Some random dork walked up to me and said…”May I have a word?”  I looked at him and replied…”Sure.  Take asshole I’m not using it right now”.

9–I was with my lady friend at her therapy session and there were 2 younger males (mid teens or so) rehabbing……they were talking about a date one had where he watched a movie with this bird he wanted to jump….the movie was Titanic….he talked about the movie and then he said…..”and the boat sank” there was a pause and he then said “I did not see that coming”.  I damn near choked on my water!  I cry for the future!

10-Student Loans!  Did you know that the Dept. of Education will show a larger profit this year than Apple?

11-I can recall when vodka tasted like vodka and a martini was made with gin….the good old days!

12-I remember when men knew how to shave properly.

13-You realize that the money spent making 2 Hulk movies they could made a real one…..

14-Why is it the it is always Repubs that misquote the Bible or constitutional issues…I mean they all walk around with a copy of the US Constitution in their pocket….oh wait….it is a political prop does not mean they have read it.

15-On May 29th Breaking News was that there was a tornado warning in Oklahoma……..why is that news?  It is Spring and there is always tornado warnings in Oklahoma…….that whole thing was just plain silly!

2012 Thoughts Without Posts #5

Once again I have had many, many thoughts but not all make it into posts for various reasons…..I have notebooks full of notes and thoughts…..some good and some just plain silly…..

1–Can anyone please explain the popularity of reality TV? (asked several times with No good answer)

2–The first 6 months of 2012 have been the warmest ever.

3–Soap operas are disappearing at a good rate and yet someone thought Dallas resurrection would be healthy…I disagree.

4–STOP using the term “boots on the ground”….they are young men/women that are put in harm’s way….stop de-humanizing them.

5–STOP using “all in”….it is a bullshit term used by pathetic losers.

6–Stop using “kick the can down the road”…..call what it is….cowards refusing to act!

7–Can anything be more boring than watching someone fish?

8–Give me a sexy pundit other than SE Cupp.

9–Stop!  The recent shooting will do NOTHING to further one side of the argument or the other…all it will do is give the MSM something else to fixate on for a week or so….

10-At what point will Americans stop bullshit arguments on bullshit topics and focus on the nation and what is best for the residents?

11-By this point in any election the whole dialog has become pathetic and tiresome.

12-If there is a true conserv out there, I know most will not read this blog, could you explain to me Mitt Romney?  He has NO foreign policy…..NO domestic policy…..NO answers other than Obama sucks….What makes him a viable candidate?  Other than Obama must be beat in November.  I mean his biggest go to line is that he saved the Olympics…but actually government intervention saved the Utah Olympics….what is the real draw for Mitt?

13-By election time the Congress will have worked less than 180 days….where is that getting anything done?

14-Does the world really need flavored Vodkas?

15-Jack Abramoff: “During the years I was lobbying, I purveyed millions of my own and clients’ dollars to congressmen, especially at such decisive moments. I never contemplated that these payments were really just bribes, but they were. Like most dissembling Washington hacks, I viewed these payments as legitimate political contributions, expressions of my admiration of and fealty to the venerable statesman I needed to influence.”

“Outside our capital city (and its ever-prosperous contiguous counties), the campaign contributions of special interests are rightly seen as nothing but bribes. The purposeful dissonance of the political class enables congressmen to accept donations and solemnly recite their real oath of office: My vote is not for sale for a mere contribution. They are wrong. Their votes are very much for sale, only they don’t wish to admit it. The reason they don’t feel they are being bought is that the interaction seems so normal. In fact, were they not public servants, it would be very normal.”

16-I have already had this conversation with my readers but something came to light….A court filing by the state of Pennsylvania, ahead of a trial starting later this week on a lawsuit filed by civil rights groups against the state’s new voter fraud law, contains an astounding admission:

The state signed a stipulation agreement with lawyers for the plaintiffs which acknowledges there “have been no investigations or prosecutions of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania; and the parties do not have direct personal knowledge of any such investigations or prosecutions in other states.”

And then there is this from the Pennsylvania also…….

Pennsylvania Republicans aren’t shy about this fact. State GOP House Leader Mike Turzai recently admittedthe extent to which this law serves no purpose other than to elect Republicans:

“We are focused on making sure that we meet our obligations that we’ve talked about for years,” said Turzai in a speech to committee members Saturday. He mentioned the law among a laundry list of accomplishments made by the GOP-run legislature.

“Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation — abortion facility regulations — in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”

17-here is some crazy stuff…..A Utah man tied to the state’s Republican party has been arrested on charges that he raped four women.

Gregory Nathan Peterson, 37, was booked Wednesday on 23 felony counts, including rape and kidnapping. Two of the alleged victims claim the incidents took place at Peterson’s cabin, where he has hosted a number of fundraisers featuring Utah’s most prominent politicians. Peterson’s bail has been set at $750,000.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Charging documents allege sexual assaults against four women in Salt Lake County beginning March 26, 2011. In the first case, the documents allege, Peterson met a woman at a church function and she agreed to go to a movie with him.But instead of going to a theater, the papers allege, Peterson told the woman he had a gun and took her to his cabin in Heber. The documents allege he sexually assaulted the woman while she said no and hit her when she did not do as he wished. Peterson drove the woman back to her vehicle the next morning.

Okay there are a few thoughts….any suggestions or comments?  Whatya think?
