RIP George...but you we're wrong about PC

This is a subject that really chaps my hide.
Every time someone gets into high water for talking trash,
the anti-pc crowd starts chirping about what a threat to freedom of speech it is.
PC! PC! they cry!
Yeah, some people go a little too far in claiming their right to dignity
but for the most part I think the anti's ought to quit crying in their beer.
What really gets me is, the form of PC in question was brought to bear on the liberal side
by conservatives as a way of spinning issues, and the chirpers on the liberal side are playing right into it.
Leaving the Obama/ Clinton thing out of it for now,
I guess the most recent hooterah I can recall was the Don Imus flub
calling a group of college basketball players
"nappy headed ho's"
Sure Imus should be free to say that if he wants,
just like his listeners being free to shitcan him for it.
A bigger question though is "why would he say that?"
What was the point?
There was NO reason to say it other than to offend.
Why should anyone stand up for some one elses right to offend?
It's retarded!
People who offend for the purpose of baiting deserve to get kicked in the ass!
I've heard so much from people on the so-called "liberal" side lamenting PC that it just makes me sick.
To me the real PC is this crap we get from our government,
telling us what to say and think.
"Support the troops!"
"Don't question the war"
yadda yadda yadda
There's plenty more and I'm sure anyone reading this has their own memories of getting the american party line shoved down their throat.
Wikipedia has an excellent write up on the history of PC.
Read it!

Don't call me nigger......whitey!

New law prompts Calif. county to halt all weddings

Kern County Clerk Ann Barnett has announced that she will no longer perform civil marriages,

"the increased demand for ceremonies would overwhelm her staff and pose office security risks"

Is she a lying sack of shit or what?

You know the scaredy cats have always contended that gay marriage would destroy the institution of marriage, but this action comes closer to the institutions destruction than anything a gay couple could possibly do.
If she refuses all civil marriages, then the way I see it is that the state can no longer accept marriages as a legal contract from churches either. To do so would be as un-constitutional as the situation was before the recent Supreme Court ruling.
And then what do you have?
No marriage contracts?
And then what?
Seems to me like she just kicked out the first block supporting the institution.

Duncan Hunter for Congress

" For me the central tenet of America
is that freedom is not granted to us by a man made government,
but is gifted to us by God
and so may not be taken away by man, least not without a fight"
Duncan D. Hunter

Vote for Duncan so that he may "stay the course" of his old mans 26 year legacy of graft, fear mongering and wall building.
The wall gets longer while our firefighting services get the short end of the stick.
I don't think Mexicans have burned down half as many houses as "Santa Ana",
goddamn, we've got a wall but no fire trucks.
Bin Laden is still free thanks in part to Duncan Srs. policy of supporting a failed President and a failed policy.
26 more years?
How about that?
Before this is all said and done, we could have a Hunter in office for over a half century!
Isn't democracy great?

Too bad

Too bad our so called "progressive" candidate is nothing but an ass kissing panderer.
Earlier this week he disowned his church of 20 years because of pressure from "others".
Now he's back to kissing Israeli ass and wearing their pin for gawds sake.
What next?
What group do you think he'll bend over backwards for next?
We liberal types don't generally have a lot of extra coin to toss around so you can bet he ain't gonna be bending for us.

The unpromised land

Pin em up Dem woos Jews

Nobody for President!

Some humans aint human....................

Always have loved John Prine's music,
and this song isn't any different,
what he's talking about here is too close to the stuff I hear from the "not humans"
and the demonization, sub-humanization and downright disregard for anyone they don't understand.
The "not humans" are a pretty fucking stupid, backasswards type of folk and a lot of them do have ice cubes in their hearts,
unfortunately they are human.
I think it's important for all of us to remember that anyone can be "not human" at any given time.
As a thinking animal, we're kinda fucked up that way.
So lets all give people more hugs, the more "not human" they are,
the more hugs they get!
If that doesn't help them then fuck it!
Piss on their shoes!

What Flower
