What the Heck

16 July 2012

Just pledged to the “Occupy vs. Tea Party” reality show on Kickstarter. Four days to go.

UPDATE: The goal was reached a some point in the last 24 hours. It’s a go.

Typical

2 June 2012

Here’s a smug and smarmy picture I was just exposed to on the intertubes, by another smug and smarmy person who was applauding it.

If someone wants to put their own opinions on their own vehicles, more power to ‘em; it’s a great way for me to spot the idiots in the crowd and give them wide berth while I’m commuting home. But this jerk is borrowing his father’s truck (and, who knows; living in his father’s basement, eating his father’s food, etc.?) and can’t resist sticking a contradictory sign in the window while doing so? If he feels that strongly about the issue, let him get a job and his own car. Like I have, when I’m commuting and giving wide berth to ungrateful self-satisfied idiots like him.

A Strike to Avoid “Unions” and “Labor”?

12 March 2012

It’s not the first time Dems have called for a Lysistrata strategy – remember how they called for liberals to pledge not to sleep with anyone who opposed ObamaCare? – so, once again, the “Progressive” party who haven’t had a new or original idea in years (or centuries, if they’re going back to ancient Greek plays) is calling for a “sex strike” against those evil men who refuse to choose the Constitution over paying for college students to have unlimited sex.

In light of the recent war on women, we are calling for a nationwide sex strike from April 28th to May 5th. All women should withhold from having sex with their partners.

It’s amazing how much stupid is just in those two sentences. The claim of a “war on women” is a downright lie, the one-week duration of the strike shouldn’t hurt anyone who isn’t exactly what Rush Limbaugh said they were, and the “all women should” directive makes the usual naïve leftist assumption that “all women” are leftists who believe and do whatever their leftie leaders tell them to do, being incapable of forming their own opinions or making their own choices – and that all men, on the other hand, are evil oppressors who must be struck against. I don’t think I even need go into the heteronormativity on display.

Obviously, most people are not taking this seriously (if they’ve even heard of it at all), as the comments on their Facebook page show. Any hardcore leftie woman likely to subscribe to this strike probably wasn’t sleeping with social conservatives anyway, nor would most social conservatives want to sleep with the lefties who’d join the “strike”; so, like so many liberal gestures, this one may get them to feel all kinds of clever and superior but will accomplish precisely nothing.

#OccupyToledo Has *SIX* People

21 October 2011

If they are the 99%, then by my calculations, the total population of Toledo must be 6.06 (actual Toledo population according to Wikipedia is 287,208; which means that those six people are the 0.002089%).

First World Problems

19 October 2011

According to the NY Post, “looking at [Occupy Wall Street] protest attendance, you might conclude that the most oppressed group in American society are white college students.” (H/T: IMAO) One meme that’s spread all over the internet recently is called “First World Problems.” More often that not, some smug leftie is the one attaching that label to any concern that Americans have which is nothing compared to the hardships facing the impoverished and starving in third world countries; well, I think I can be forgiven for looking at the signs carried by OWS protesters and thinking that most of their complaints are “First World Problems” (except for the growing number of protestors who are more accurately described as “Third Reich Problems”). You’re in debt and can’t get a good job in your field, so you want to be subsidized as you camp out on other peoples’ land and plot ways to steal and redistribute their belongings?

Occupy This

19 October 2011

Joe Biden wishes opponents of President Barack Obama’s latest stimulus knew what it felt like to be robbed or raped. Really. Well, fortunately for us, Obama’s new BFFs are there to help us! If we want to know how it feels to be robbed or raped, all we have to do is go to one of those Occupy rallies that he’s so fond of.

Update: If you do get raped at OccupyBaltimore, keep it to yourself; or report it to the OccupyBaltimore staff who will arrange counseling for you and the rapist. But they’d prefer to keep the police out of it.

A Song For #OccupyWallStreet

14 October 2011

Of course, I’ve got my own set of lyrics for this tune…

They Have No Hope, But Change Would Be Nice

10 October 2011

OccupyReality … for a change.

(Image of protesters H/T: Zombie, with the caption “Only at a San Francisco protest could there be a freak so freaky that even the naked guy would look at him aghast”; read “US Military 1 – Occupy Movement 0” for Zombie’s photographs of OccupySF competing with the US military.)
