About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

Wait, you attacked the Dixie Chicks for what they said but you're crying fowl over Duck Dynasty? ...

Then you are a turkey.

There's going to be a network boycott by a bunch of folks that can't even spell A&E.

82K Sign Petition Demanding Phil Robertson’s Return To ‘Duck Dynasty’, Sean Hannity Gives Out A+E Phone Numbers

UPDATE, 5:44 PM: Nearly 82,000 people, in about nine hours, have signed the IStandWithPhil petition, calling for A+E network to immediately reinstate Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. The 77K “are making a clear statement to A&E that its actions are censoring Faith Driven Consumers and eliminating them from an entertainment choice that people of faith overwhelmingly support,” said Chris Stone, petition creator and founder of the the organization that says it connects “Christian consumers” with “faith-compatible companies.”

Meanwhile, those who don’t want to put their signatures on a petition were given phone numbers for A+E Networks execs by Sean Hannity, so they could vent on the phone. “A+E knows how he feels about this,” Hannity said on his radio show, of Robertson’s religious beliefs. “Why did they put him with a GQ guy in the first place? How stupid are they?” Then he gave them the phone numbers A+E Network CEO Abbe Raven and president Nancy Dubuc. “I’m not telling people what to say. Be polite. I always urge that. But call them and tell them what you think.”

Sarah Palin - Free speech means you can say any stupid, racist, hateful, homophobic thing you want


http://www.politico.com/story/2013/12/sarah-palin-duck-dynasty-defense-101319.html

Sarah Palin says the suspension of one of the stars of the show “Duck Dynasty” over recent anti-gay comments he made is an attack on free speech.

Palin re-posted a picture of her meeting with the stars of the A&E show on her Facebook page Wednesday night, writing that “intolerants” were behind the suspension of the show’s patriarch, Phil Robertson.

“Free speech is an endangered species. Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us,” Palin wrote.
...

Free speech also means other citizens can call you out for every stupid, racist, hateful, homophobic thing you say.

"God hates _____." or "God, I hate _____." Fill in the blank and lose your job/TV show/______

Welcome to the 21st Century you dinosaurs who want to demonize a minority based on religion, sex, lifestyle or gender.
It will not be tolerated anymore.
If it can take down a Duck Dynasty it can take down you.

The Duck Dynasty Chia Pets are now exclusively available at Chik-Fil-A.

That is all.


and here's the context:

http://www.today.com/entertainment/duck-dynasty-patriarch-suspended-show-anti-gay-comments-2D11773442

Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson has been taken off the A&E hit series "indefinitely," following anti-gay comments he made in a GQ interview published Wednesday.

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series 'Duck Dynasty,' a network statement issued late Wednesday said. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Steve Albini's Letter To Nirvana Before He Produced In Utero -

"Remixing is for talentless pussies who don't know how to tune a drum or point a microphone."

There is nothing I can say about this to make it any better, so just read it.

Why yes, a dozen Santa's jumping on trampolines is entertainment...

To me anyway.
At the .11 second mark one of the Santas misses the trampoline and does a faceplant.
Now that's entertainment.

Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Un's Ousted Uncle, Reportedly Executed

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/12/jang-song-thaek-executed_n_4435294.html

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korean state media say Kim Jong Un's uncle has been executed, calling the leader's former mentor "worse than a dog."

The announcement early Friday comes days after Pyongyang announced that Jang Song Thaek had been removed from all his posts because of allegations of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing and generally leading a "dissolute and depraved life."

Jang was considered the second most powerful official in the North. He was seen as helping Kim Jong Un consolidate power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, two years ago. Jang was the latest and most significant in a series of personnel reshuffles that Kim has conducted in an apparent effort to bolster his power.
