2012 Anal-Ocity #3

After all it is the silly season, the 2012 election season, and I expect a plethora of anal comments coming from all quarters…..I should have an excellent crop to choose from for the winner of th “Assie” award at the end of the year……..

Today’s goodie comes from GOP candidate for the GOP nomination to face Pres. Obama in November, Rick Santorum….he has many comments in the past that has labelled him an extremist, hard right extremist…..and he has made a few comments that would make a sane person ask…WTF?  And today’s anal-ocity is just such a comment…..

On the stump when asked about homosexuals he said…..

I do not have a problem with homosexuals, but I do with homosexual acts

It is okay to be gay you just cannot act on any of the urges……WTF?

This type of doublespeak should work well in the South…if he last that long……if not he can always claim the fame of being included in Info Ink’s Anal-Ocity posts…….not everyone is that lucky……

In Case You Were Napping

Since we have a few days before the next media circus that is the New Hampshire primary…….

While you were celebrating the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012…..our prez, Obama, signed into law NDAA……the so-called “detention” law that would give the government free reign to detain protesters as somehow “terrorists”…..with that done all eyes are turning to SOPA, the anti-piracy act…..which could be the end of bloggers like myself and Red State’s Erickson and many many others…..since Obama had NO problem signing NDAA….what are the chances that he will sign the SOPA?

But why would Obama sign such a bill and such an attack on the free speech part of the Constitution?  A good question and here could be the answers that we look for…..

From the website, TwitLonger……….

This list shows who supports #SOPA and who is publicly against it… #StopSOPA #ReTweet

Now take a look….a hard look…..at those in favor of the measure……(pause for reflection)……now you have your answer as to why the US Congress supports it…….MONEY!  RE-ELECTION!

Get involved….let everyone know how you feel……if we are lazy or uncaring….we could lose our right to blog…..I personally do NOT want the government controlling my efforts to educate the people….how about you?
