Those Who Live in Glass Houses… Justin Trudeau is Not the Only Sitting Politician to Break the Law and Won’t be the Last

Tweet

Well, Boys n girls,  it seems that Justin Trudeau has admitted to having smoked some weed about 5 or 6 times in his life, the most recent being a few years ago as a sitting MP at a dinner party with friends as they passed a spliff around the table.  The comments I’ve . . . → Read More: Those Who Live in Glass Houses… Justin Trudeau is Not the Only Sitting Politician to Break the Law and Won’t be the Last

While US gun nuts petition to deport Piers Morgan, Brits petition to “Keep Piers Morgan in the USA”

Tweet

Like a lot of progressives and centrists, I’ve found the whole petition to deport CNN‘s insufferable Piers Morgan to be a laughable if not preposterous cause, even for the right wing. Even funnier though is the effort of British folks to keep Morgan in the USA. While the former petition has reached 70K signatures over the last . . . → Read More: While US gun nuts petition to deport Piers Morgan, Brits petition to “Keep Piers Morgan in the USA”

That’s over 30 Minutes Out of My Life I will Never Get Back…NRA Beats Their Own Record For Insanity

Tweet

 

A data base for the mentally ill?  Armed guards at schools? Or my favourite, the  only  a “good” guy with a gun can protect against a “bad” guy with a gun?

As for that data base ol’ Wayne Lapierre flapped his gums about, can we put him and the rest of . . . → Read More: That’s over 30 Minutes Out of My Life I will Never Get Back…NRA Beats Their Own Record For Insanity

We Don’t Need Gun Control! We Need Prayer!

Tweet

Yesterday, yet another school shooting. This time, an elementary school in Connecticut where 20 children and 6 adults were shot dead by an AK 47 no less. The gun apparently belonged to his mother, whom he also shot and killed.  He turned the gun on himself .

Tea-Baggin’ Racists Once Again Prove to be Historically Challenged

Tweet

Today is the 57th anniversary of that fateful day Rosa Parks defiantly refused to give up her seat on a city bus.  The White House tweets a pic of President Obama sitting on that bus to commemorate the event.

Righties like the clinically insane Michelle Malkin and her . . . → Read More: Tea-Baggin’ Racists Once Again Prove to be Historically Challenged

Ok, Stevie, When the Clinically Insane Pammy Geller Sings Your Praises…

Tweet

It’s officially, Canada has become more of an embarrassment than even tea-baggin’ US of A.

Read and weep, boys ‘n’ girls. Watch her gush and crush over Stevie Spiteful, if you have a strong stomach.

How low have we sunk?

Telling. Fox News asks of NBC’s Sandy telethon: “How is NBC going to control what people say?”

Tweet

Fox News is aghast that NBC will be broadcasting a benefit concert for the victims of Sandy. Why would that be? Because NBC is the pawn of Obama and all the acts (Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Aguilera, Sting, Joel) are flaming liberals. That’s why. Plus…

”Where are the conservative performers?”

Wacky pastor blames Hurricane Sandy on LGBT’s and anti-Israel sentiment

Tweet

Only the first of many more to come. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock are not isolated cases. This kind of bigotry is endemic in the religious community, especially among evangelicals.

He continued: “Just last August, Hurricane Isaac hit New Orleans seven years later, on the exact day of Hurricane Katrina. Both hit . . . → Read More: Wacky pastor blames Hurricane Sandy on LGBT’s and anti-Israel sentiment

CNN analyst irate after viewing Lena Dunham voting video: “depraved world destined for the fire.” Yes, it’s that good.

Tweet

I’m not much of a Lena Dunham fan. But anyone who can drive wingnuts ’round the bend like she is doing with her “Your First Time” video is AOK with me.

CNN’s Erick Erickson had a coronary after seeing it, tweeting, “We do live in a fallen, depraved world destined for the . . . → Read More: CNN analyst irate after viewing Lena Dunham voting video: “depraved world destined for the fire.” Yes, it’s that good.

Republican Richard Mourdock: Rape is a gift from God

Tweet

It’s not so much the absolute underscored disregard for women or the blind adherence to scripture that makes Richard Mourdock’s statement so egregious; it’s the rush from the GOP in support of the Senate candidate that is so startling.

The chairman of the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm is standing by Indiana Senate . . . → Read More: Republican Richard Mourdock: Rape is a gift from God

Mississippi Tea Party: women too emotional and diabolical to vote

Tweet

This, coming from a local president of the Tea Party is no surprise. Being that it comes from a woman, that makes it full-on Eww! She must be reading Barbara Kay.

Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful . . . → Read More: Mississippi Tea Party: women too emotional and diabolical to vote

Fuqua’s Folly: Canada’s future under Harper, Woodworth, Kenney et al?

Tweet

Yep, here’s where Canada’s Conservative party could one day be headed. With the subtle but urgent march of the likes of Woodworth, Kenney, and the 91 MP’s who voted against women’s rights, how much longer before we are urged to debate the right of women to vote? Or, listen to a recommendation . . . → Read More: Fuqua’s Folly: Canada’s future under Harper, Woodworth, Kenney et al?

Man kills wife and two sons after church for fear of Obama victory

Tweet

How crazed are conservatives over Obama being reelected? It’s getting way out of hand.

Recently, Mr Peterson began writing paranoid emails to his friends and family about politics on a daily basis, sometimes even more frequently, Maggie said.

Romney’s Harper-like speech blows up in his face. US media pounces.

Tweet

Remember Stephen Harper’s 1997 speech to a group of Americans, where he called Canada, “a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term”? That quote, and many other similar Canada-hating ones, should have gone viral and remained viral. But it hasn’t and won’t, because well, the media is not going to shoot itself . . . → Read More: Romney’s Harper-like speech blows up in his face. US media pounces.

Shona Holmes is Baaack! Yet Again!

Tweet

And she’s a stickin’ to her story or should I say her lie about a “brain tumour” that really was a benign cyst of the petuitary gland.  She’s back on the tea-party circuit again and she’s featured on the latest Koch brothers’ anti-Obama ads.  Just one thing, Shona, how much are the Koch . . . → Read More: Shona Holmes is Baaack!

Republicans deny they are at war with women. This guy is an example of the reality.

GOP Senate hopeful: you can’t get pregnant from ‘legitimate rape’

Missouri (pronounced “Misery”) has its share of RWNJs but this Todd Akin dude is the champ of them all. Just read:

Romney Bain lyin’

Tweet

Look, I like to give a guy a break once in awhile but when you’re the “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president” three years after you said you had no involvement in a company, you got some explainin’ to do.

Romney’s VP choice to be Condi?

Tweet

I don’t read Drudge for obvious reasons but I do follow Memeorandum so I happened to catch Drudge’s breathless – ALL CAPS (why are the wingnuts screaming so loudly these days?) – headline that Condoleeza Rice could very well be Mitt Romney’s choice for Vice President.
