Right wing terrorists blow up a bomb at a Minnesota mosque.

But hey, we should deport all the Muslims because they’re all terrorists who bomb shit.

Hypocrites, much?

So says Trump’s nominee for a vacancy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

I… have no more words to say. This… DINGBAT… is going to get rubber-stamped by the Republican Senate. And is going to be enforcing religious orthodoxy — her *specific* ultra-conservative religious orthodoxy — for the rest of her life.

We are so fucked.

F-35 fighter in its natural habitat

Which, it turns out, is a huge amount:

“They spend how much on transgender medical services? $8.4 million? My God that’s like four screws and a couple of bolts on my ejection seat,” the F-35 told reporters, in between sips of cognac during its lunch break. “I’m so glad Trump is ending this disgraceful waste of military spending.”

Yeppers, Teh Donald fucked over his queer supporters today, banning transgender troops because of “tremendous healthcare costs”. Which, as the F-35 above points out, is such a huge amount that it could pay for four screws and a couple of bolts on a F-35’s ejection seat.

So much for the notion that Trump wasn’t going to govern as a right-wing religious zealot…

I mean, it looks like it’s going bankrupt, big-time. It lost all its funding from the state government, isn’t pulling in enough funding at the gate to keep the doors, and had to re-classify itself as a religious not-for-profit because it couldn’t afford to pay its taxes. It looks like Ken Ham’s scam is insolvent and soon to go out of business.

What to do once Hamm has to declare bankruptcy and the Ark is sold off? Who should buy it? What do you do with a building purpose-built as an ark, anyhow?

I have a suggestion that’s wicked: some of our richest gay people in the entertainment industry, like David Geffen and Ellen Degeneres, ought to buy it up and turn it into … a gay nightclub. I’m sure it’d be *fabulous*!

Think about it! It’d be *truly* a place for encounters there. All of Kentucky’s closeted gay politicians could meet there and say “we’re just going to the Ark Encounter, y’all, don’t mind us!”.

Heck, they wouldn’t even have to remove all the displays to turn it into a gay nightclub. I understand that the younger set would find it all “ironic”. And fabulous.

“Where’d you meet your boyfriend, John?”

“Oh, I met him by the statue of Jesus riding a dinosaur at the Ark Encounter!”

Bwhahahaha! Ken Hamm would die of embarrassment!

Thinking about buying a new camera from this New York City mail order emporium?

B&H Photo workers strike on May Day to protest their jobs moving to New Jersey.

Last year B&H Photo’s warehouse workers voted to unionize. This was after the DOJ sued B&H a *second* time for discrimination against the Hispanic warehouse workers. In retaliation and in order to break the union, B&H is moving the warehouse to a location in New Jersey far from public transit. Note that, like most New Yorkers, most of B&H’s warehouse workers don’t have cars — there’s no need for one in New York City, the subway gets you there faster.

Note that B&H has also been sued (and settled) for discrimination against women. This company seems to be run by right-wing religious kooks with weird notions about women and about people who don’t belong to their religion, and should be avoided like all other companies run by right-wing religious kooks (thinking Hobby Lobby and Carls Jr./Hardees offhand).

I’m buying my new camera from Adorama instead. Whose owners btw are of the same religion as B&H, but they don’t seem to take it to the level of kookery like Bigots & Haters does.

That’s what a survey just found — the majority of Republicans, 58% of’em, think higher education is bad for America. ‘Cause it teaches you that thare book larnin’, not, like, Bible larnin’. Why, you might even stop thinking that the world is flat and an invisible sky demon makes the Sun rise every morning if you got too much of that thare book larnin’.

Now, you might say, what about the America that send men to the Moon and such? How we gonna do shit like that again if we don got no edumacation? But look. We don’t need colleges here in the United States anymore, ’cause we can hire them thare edumacated dot-heads and chinks to do all that nerd work now, and they cain’t vote ’cause they ain’t citizens so they ain’t gonna be votin’ fer school bored members that let that thare evil “science” and “history” stuff into our classrooms. When everbody in this here cuntry gets Bible Studies all school year long (all five days long of it after the budget cuts come through, ’cause we’uns need tax brakes for our bajillionaire job creators, y’all!), then it’s gone be a Christian nation, like, again, or maybe for the first time if them LIE-berals wuz correct about how our founding fathers wuz Deists rather than Christians but hey, everbody knows them thare lie-berals, they’uns LIE.

And when them thare lie-berals say that our glorious leaders are sociopathic lizard people who view us as prey rather than as people and ain’t got our best interests in their hearts by telling us that this hare edumacation stuff is overrated… well, them thare lie-berals just bein’ mean, y’all. That’s all. ‘Cuz Big Brother loves me, I know it’s true, ‘cuz the television, it says so too, just like my preacher man. So thare!

Bay Area McDonald’s will serve large orders of French fries in limited-edition rainbow boxes for Pride Month, June 2017. (Photo courtesy of McDonald’s of the Greater Bay Area)

Yep, that’s what the preacher who got upset about Starbucks cups is upset about now. McDonalds french fries are gay!

Uhm…. say whuh? I mean, do these french fries copulate with each other or something? How do you sex a french fry to know they’re doing the nasty with the same sex, anyhow? They don’t have any externally visible genitalia!

Then he says that maybe McDonalds should serve some Christian french fries. Uhm. They’re french fries. They’re food. Food doesn’t have a religion. You eat it, you don’t worship it. (Though I must admit that some of the food I’ve eaten over the years has been worthy of worship, thinking about some places in the French QUarter that I ate in over the decades, then a New Mexican place in South Phoenix…). Since when do fried potatoes have a religion? Is this dude dotty or something? (Answer: Yes.)

Meanwhile, the gay wedding cake case is going to the Supreme Court. The baker’s argument is that, apparently, a cake is speech. Say wha? I could have sworn that a cake was food! Since when is a food speech? Something you do with a food might be speech — for example, throwing a lemon pie at a piñata of Donald Trump. But a food itself? It’s just food. Something you eat for nourishment (or at least enjoyment). Duh.

I mean, what’s the difference between a gay wedding cake and just a plain old wedding cake? I guess a gay wedding cake is fabulous, sure. But it’s a cake. It doesn’t do any mano a mano sexual acts with other cakes, because, like, it lacks arms, and legs, and external genitalia, and reproductive organs, and …. So gay cake sex must be boring as hell. They just lay on each other waiting to be eaten? WTF?

Man, these tighty whitey righties could have chosen anything on the universe to get upset about — war, famine, poverty, Remy Ma beating Nicki Minaj at the BET Awards– but they chose food? For realz? Man. You couldn’t make this up. If I wrote this as part of a novel, the editor would return it right back to me saying “too unrealistic, nobody could be so small-minded as to get upset by food items.”

Yet there they are.


What a thing to get upset by. Sheesh!
