Why Everyone Should See Zack and Mira Make a Porno

Because protest always helps ticket sales, everyone who reads this blog needs to go see Zack and Mira Make a Porno. Larry Miller the owner of the Megaplex Theaters in Salt Lake City Utah has decided to not show the movie due to it's content, even though the movie has a R rating and is a comedy. The movie has the same R rating as Saw V, a movie full of graphic violence, and a movie they have no problem showing.

Another sign of your typical conservative stupidity. They have no problem with graphic violence being shown to this countries children, but mild sexual content, no way do we want children to see that. It's ok to let children see the proper way to torture someone, but a Kevin Smith movie with porno in the name. Heaven forbid!!!! A parent might have to explain to a child what a porno is.... as if the child doesn't already know.

Misconceptions about I-1000

My buddy The Rooster posted a blog today about why he isn't voting for I-1000. I already figured he wouldn't based in his religious views. In his post he pointed out the reasons he didn't agree with the law, and I responded with why he's wrong!!!!!!

Since I am such an outspoken supporter of this law, I decided to post what he wrote and my responses.


Rooster Not Fully Studying - There are no penalties for doctors who fail to submit or falsify reports of participants in the Death with Dignity act. In fact, death certificates are actually required to be falsified stating the cause of death was the terminal illness, not the lethal overdose of the “drug”. This means the initiative is safeguarding itself from being reported on and identified as being taken advantage of for potentially ill motives from less than honest people. Face it, the health industry is full of people like that.

Fact - Who gives a shit what the death certificate says. It's all clearly documented (and re…

Door Knob #1 or Door Knob # 2

Here is Washington the governor is up for re-election. We've had a difficult choice this year, because we have to decide which one we hate less. As it turns not, it is the exact same choice we had the last time around. Basically the republican candidate lost, but by such a narrow margin that he has decided to give it a another try.

Door #1 leads to our current governor Democrat Christine Gregoire. As far as I know she's probably one of the least liked Washington governors in recent history. She's shown that she will provide favors for whoever puts the most money in her pocket, and generally spouts off nonsense every chance she gets. She can barely make decisions and that's usually only when she if forced to. Beyond that, she doesn't commit to anything in an attempt to be as non-committal of a politician as possible. On the plus side, the state hasn't broken off and fallen into the ocean while she has been governor.

Door # 2 leads to challenger Dino Rossi. Rossi a…

10 Laws The Next President Should Enact to Make This a Better Country

With a little over a week to go till the next president will be elected, I decided to help the next president (Obama) out with some advice on a few new laws he should pass.

10 - Tighten the border with Mexico. I know this is in contrast to my liberal stance on most issues, but every time I go to Home Depot I feel like a riot is about to break out. I do support a guest worker program though. Come up and work, make some money, then go home to raise the 10 kids.
9 - Put a cap on the salaries of executives. I've met and worked for many upper managers and business executives, so I know they in no way shape or form do anything that justifies the salaries they receive.
8 - Increase the marriage age to 25. If you are in love and going to be together forever at 18, then you will still be in love and together at 25. I'd imagine we'd see fewer divorces if people had to wait a while.
7 - Legalize gay marriage. Look, there is no reason marriage shouldn't be between two humans who love …

Dumb NASA Very Dumb

This is why the American government is dumb, and the government agencies within it are equally dumb.

NASA is always complaining about the billions of dollars needed to fund its various endeavors. We currently fly space shuttles with empty seats, back and forth to the international space station. Yet, we don't allow tourist to pay for rides. Russia on the other hand, just sent another tourist Richard Garriott to the international space station for a mere 30 million dollars.

NASA wake up you dumb fucks and start offering this shit. Or even better, start a lottery. People across the country can buy a 1 dollar tickets, and win a ride. You'd make millions. You pick 3, so there are backups in case anyone fails, and use the money to fix Hubble.

Lazy Microsoft Janitors

I walked into the office this morning and something didn't seem quite right. I walked into my office and noticed something wasn't quite right, the lights were on. I usually have one light on and the other off, and I turn them both off when I leave at night. I didn't use my office at all yesterday, so at first I thought maybe the person who did left them both on.

After starting my laptop I then went to the break room to make myself a warm liquid caffeinated drink. It's at this point of walking through the halls that I realize what wasn't quite right, all the lights were on, in every office, even the empty ones. I also notice that all the garbage and recycle containers are in the hallway.

What happened is the lazy ass janitors did their job, but didn't bother turning the lights off or put the garbage containers back into the offices. I've noticed the garbage thing before. They regularly walk the halls, dump the smaller ones into the large one they wheel aroun…

Prop K

So check this out! San Francisco, the ultra liberal city that it is, has a ballot initiative that would stop cops from arresting prostitutes for selling sex. Yep, it's almost legalized prostitution. I haven't been able to find any polls showing if it's going to pass or not, but if it does my buddy B-Rad will be happy. He can save a few bucks in travel for those "work trips". Instead of going to Nevada, he can now catch a shorter flight to San Francisco.

Mormons Who Hate Butt Sex

Image
Mercury News in California recently did an article about how the Mormon church has contributed 8.4 million dollars to promote Prop 8 in California. The proposition if passed, would add a state constitutional amendment defining marriage between a man and a woman. Interesting that a religious group that spent much of its time fighting for religious freedom is spending so much effort in fighting for restricting the freedoms of others. But then again, I guess that is what most religion is about.

Having spent some time in Utah and touring around Salt Lake City, I would equate the Mormons more to a cult than I would a religious order, I do think it's interesting that they are spending so much money on an initiative in California. You'd think they would prefer to spend that kind of money changing the Utah state constitution to define marriage as between a man and as many women as he wants. After all, it's not like they wanted to change their religious beliefs to support the one ma…

Religious Nuts Spout Off on I-1000

People who read this blog regularly have probably figured out by now, that religion pisses me off! There is an article in the Seattle PI today that totally points out why religion pisses me off. The article "'Playing God' or dignified death?" is all about how various religions are up in arms about I-1000 the death with dignity initiative. As you can imagine the Catholics are pouring money into the campaign fighting it, saying we are playing God by allowing people to die. Then of course there is a Jewish Rabbi arguing " that taking extraordinary measures to treat someone with terminal cancer is also prolonging the dying"

I have an idea you fucking religions fucktards! How about you stay the hell out of it, and let the person who is dying make the choice! It is not your religious duty to tell everyone else how to live their lives!

In Defense of Dignity

One more thing on the death with dignity posting from yesterday. Dan Savage a writer and editor for "The Stranger" posted a touching story about his own mothers death, that I think people voting on this issues in Washington should read.

Yes on I-1000

Have you ever thought to yourself about what you would want to do if you has a terminal illness, suffering from massive amounts of pain, and how you would want to deal with it. Currently Oregon is the only state in the country that allows death with dignity. The idea behind death with dignity is just that, it allows someone who knows they are going to die, to go on their terms. Specifically it "allows mentally competent, terminally ill adults with six months or less to live to receive - under strict safeguards - a prescription for life-ending medication"

I know the religious nuts out there are against it saying, God should be one who makes the decision on when someone should die. Yet, they don't seem to have a problem with keeping someone on life support to keep them alive, and they don't seem to have a problem with medication to keep someone alive. If it weren't for those things, would that person be dead? Wouldn't that be God saying it's time for this pe…

Maverick

I was at a bar during the debate with some friends, and one of the things we joked about was, what a good drinking game the debates would make. Apparently we weren't the only ones.

No on Prop 8

Image
I normally don't post twice in one day, but since I didn't post much this week here is another one.

My buddy over at the Rooster Strikes did a post on a Religious extremist and gays, So I feel that I should add this link; No on Prop 8. For those who think marriage should be between two people who love each other, rather than our current BS antiquated Christian conservative beliefs. Help California fight the narrow minded fucktards. If you don't live there, donate, and if you do vote no. send the Christian conservatives back to the deep south, back woods, redneck, towns where they belong.

Low Expectations

As most of us know the vice presidential debate was last night, and now all the pundits and new agencies are talking about it. What are they saying of course is that Sarah Palin did well… Of course she did! It's not like she didn't have weeks to train, advisers, and speech writers to tell her what to say to each of the questions she knew she would be getting. Now all the conservatives out there are going to be saying, "see told you she can do the job." Give me a break. When the expectations are so low for someone, that all they need to do is show up to look good, that does not mean a person is qualified to be vice president.
