OUR THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
John Boehner is re-elected speaker of the house by a slim to none margin. That vote of confidence has forced him to get another part time job. He will be representing the "Mens Warehouse" a clothing chain who has just announced their 2013 line of Chain-Mail and Kevlar mens sport jackets after it was rumored Eric Cantor told Boehner, "nothing to worry about, I got your back"! Boehner mumbled something to himself… yea right, "Et Tu Brute!"
I WRITE ABOUT, POLITICS, RELIGION, and SEX
And yes, all of them are the three things you were told not to talk about. If you believe that, then this is not the place for you. Thats why they make sand, a place to bury your head.
It's really quite simple. When you turn on the TV, pick up a paper, or cruise to the office coffee pot, thats all they talk about. I am a news junkie, I get to see this world very clearly and from varied viewpoints.
I have a short fuse for fake politicians, fake religionists, those who think marriage vows are just a simple formality (many live in Hollywood) the use of sex in selling, and taking advantage of the young, those that can't defend themselves and those used by others for profit.
Thats what this site is about, exposing some of the slime that drifts to the surface from time to time. And the two largest groups of slime seem to be coming together out of the vents just like in the movie "The Blob". Politicians are always claiming God is on their side, and the religious right is claiming they know who is best to lead this nation. Maybe they should read the constitution, something about Church and State.
"POLL DANCERS and RELIGIONISTOS"
Politicians and polling is likened to a scorecard to see if ones greatest lies are actually working. If it looks like a crook, smells like a crook, acts like a crook, and wants your vote or money for whatever cause they claim to support you with, most likely it is either a politician or a religious scam.
We have a large section of our "friends" we elected not because of their skills or patriotic beliefs and the honest will to serve but many were the lesser of two evils; Or we were not informed enough and believed the lies and spins put out by the paid professional liars hired by these political hacks.
Just like the proverbial cockroach these money changers like Karl Rove turn up at every election with some title or position and claim God is behind them.
In politics, I just target the liars regardless of political stance or affiliation or what they just lied about as a talking head. And we did not leave out those who were busy banging secretaries, continent hoping for love in all those Argentine hotspots or those chasing Senate pages around in addition to the usual bribes, favors, cheating, and all around scum bagging some of them are known for.
My biggest stand against religious bigotry is the constant battle of priorities. Did I just lose you? Ok it's this simple. The founding fathers came to this land because they couldn't worship the way they wanted to. And today we have a strong right, passionate voice about this becoming the United States of Jesus. This country was based on religious freedom not the "My God is better than your God thinking of many groups".
The Horrible Fact is: "The Better God Syndrome" has resulted in the death of more people than any other man made philosophy in the world.
But anyone in politics has to take an oath declaring to defend the constitution. Thus the order is Country, God, Family and so forth. In a totalitarian society like the Taliban it's their God, then the AK-47, and family means nothing as women have no rights anyway.
It's the separation of Church and State, the abortion changers, and the Texas Evangelical School Board librarians that threaten the United States of America. Whether they call themselves evangelicals, patriots, tea pots or anything else, NO GROUP has the right to take anything away from anyone else regardless of the cause or the one they made up because of their pointed hat bred spooky ritualistic religious beliefs.
If you are watching a guy on TV dressed like a preacher that tells you to send him money to do Gods work, call his hotline and tell him, God has spoken to you and you were so moved you decided to give to the poor box at the local church you attend instead and you saved 44 cents postage.
You just wanted him to know your money went direct to help the poor and not to put gas in his Rolls Royce. If you can afford a Rolls Royce, why ask for money.
And ask him to send his financials to Senator Grassley's sub committee. Our Lord never hired these guys or their fake cohorts and he gets around pretty good in real business class making floods, landslides, and burning bushes with ease, never asking for financial help.
SEX OR NOT TO SEX
If you try selling something today without sex in it. Good Luck. This isn't pushing GEICO, you buy GEICO because the law requires it. You buy AX because you want to copulate more often. That is the message thats sells in the products, they are called pheromone sales.
A smaller segment is called the infidelity or Hollywood section. Thats where we are compelled to hear about on at least three major channels all about who is "boffing" who!
Or as in the case of Hollywood, the marriage of the week which will probably last a week, the pregnancy of the week, which will last nine months, or the ongoing Kardashian series, one who is married, another who is cohabiting and Kim who is in and out of love and marriage as fast as the concubines of some fourth world countries.
This insight into the rich and famous promotes fatherhood by Bruce Jenner trying to straighten out the three concubines, he inherited and soon to be expanded to five as the next generation of concubines in training get of age.
All brought to the forefront by the madam he lives with, momma Kris Kardashian, and already they are celebrities. This show could take a lifetime.
It brings new meaning to the thought, "I didn't raise my daughter to act like a hooker" or "maybe I should of". The three earned four, five and six, million dollars their first year respectively for acting (?) non respectively. TV works wonders for those with no talent and large buttocks. Are those dimples on Kim's rear. Oh, well, another show on liposuction. I thought it would come after the one on enemas. ( True) One thing it does prove is that quality and quantity in some cases do exist unfortunately it's all behind them.
You see everything we do is wrapped in these topics that we are not supposed to talk about because they are embarrassing to us because of our own inner secrets and in some cases show our weakness's as human beings.
I also hate bad food. I am a culinary junkie, I cook, and I am also the arch enemy of bad eating and dining. I attack bad food, bad service, corporate brain-farts, and especially dirty fast food joints. I'll bet you didn't think they had something in common with the other three topics...food does. It hurts us.
We have obesity, kids eating junk and out of control on sugar enriched diets, and within ten years the numbers and the resultant problems will destroy whats left of the medical healthcare system.
But the food companies serving this stuff will continue on not really caring who eats what they sell. Just like those in Congress who take money for their vote. It's all about the money, you guessed it.
THIS IS A NO BULL SH*T/NO SMOKE ZONE
I may see things differently than you, and this site is all about viewpoint, my viewpoint, I hold nothing back and owe no one. I welcome discussion, I am involved every day in think tanks with intelligent people who seek solutions.
I don't argue with idiotic slogans, immoral rhetoric, not the BS they taught on Fox Media by Glenn Beck and others on a chalkboard from a 1/2 term college dropout, former druggie, hyped with a morose sense of values with no credentials, or party lines written by morons on forums with anonymous names. If you have to hide your name and identity, how can I believe anything you say?
And I like to draw comparisons. I once explained Washington as a Poker Tournament. Lots of bluffs, eye contact, playing with someone else's money and losers. Thats till you get to the final table, the cards are on the line and then you show your real hand. Yup, in Washington, in the sleeve, thats where the two aces were hidden. There are six in a deck, aren't there?
My unique logo represents No Bullsh*t/No Smoke "emblification". Go chase that word in your Funk and Wagnalls. So lets get a few things out of the way because it may take a while to get used to my sense of humor. I have no problem with communication, I speak in tongues, the Brooklyn tongue and it's a very "sardastic", language. If you grew up in Brooklyn, you are both sarcastic and slightly sadistic. It's a new word, "sardastic".
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
The race to win the coveted Alfred E. Newman Award for 2013 is off to a great start. It's a pre-political year! Yippee, a-holes galore warming up for the onslaught.
The Alfred E. Neuman award for Political Brilliance in and out of the political arena. In the past this award has been given to such "extinguished" candidates as George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Sara Palin and Glenn Beck. There is more money in being an instigator, than in problem solving. Just ask SARAH PALIN our 2010-2011 Winner. No ideas, no answers, just complains and complains and if you jiggle the letters in the word COMPLAINS, you get PALIN MOCS. This award recognizes those who did little for the country except tear it apart and prove cranial-rectal dyslexia does exist even in 2013. We have a healthy choice of possible candidates, they are all winners, in my mind.
TRUTH SITES: SNOPES, POLITIFACT, and WIKIPEDIA
I rely heavily on some websites that uncover the distortions and lies, half-truths semi-truths, partial truths, and creative writing by those lightly equipped with brains and sensitivities. Add to this group of brain-farters "entertainers", those who come up with things lending comfort to other mentally deprived thinkers, truth or not.
My three favorites are Snopes.com, Politifacts and for general information, I reference WIKIPEDIA, the online encyclopedia.
For ten years, David and Barbara Mikkelson have devoted themselves to double-checking the cannon fodder that permeates the web. Their site www.snopes.com is one of the best on urban myths and flatus dependus moronus. For those not understanding Latin, it means "fart headed moron" which is one who suffers from cranial-rectal dyslexia.
Their site, Snopes, has grown into one of the most popular and influential fact-checking destinations on the Web. In a given week, Snopes tries to set the record straight on everything from political smears to old wives’ tales.
PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in politics. Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times examine statements by members of Congress, the president, cabinet secretaries, lobbyists, people who testify before Congress and anyone else who speaks up in Washington. They research their statements and then rate the accuracy on their Truth-O-Meter – True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True and False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get the lowest rating, Pants on Fire. They also rate the consistency of public officials on our Flip-O-Meter using three ratings: No Flip, Half Flip and Full Flop. A few bottom lines about urban myths. Dr. Goebbels, Glenn Becks mentor was right, tell a lie, a big one, tell it often and make it loud. Our conclusion: There are a lot of people out there posting items that have only a glancing relationship with the truth and the worst part is they themselves rarely care if it is the truth or not.
