Tar Beach Play Time

Here is further proof to the retardation of what a species we are. This guy took a video camera to the beach, and while there he videoed all these people playing in the oil and tar on the beach from the BP spill.

Watch the whole thing, it’s super awesome.


Aging Again

One of the things that sucks about getting older, is of course, getting older. I know many people look at birthdays as a triumph of making it one more year, or being that much wiser. But really, what one more year is, it’s just that much closer to death, that much more of a sag in the skin or wrinkle on the face.

The only real advantage for me is that I’m a male, and the older we get the more distinguished. And we don’t have any boobs to start sagging.

Death by Firing Squad

There isn’t much about Utah’s conservative governing methods that I like, but I will give them one thing; when they execute someone, they do it with style. Earlier today Ronnie Lee Gardner was executed by firing squad. That’s right Utah still allows the firing squad. And before all the cruel and unusual punishment people freak out about it, it was by choice. Gardner had the option of choosing method of death and that was his choice.

Gardner was convicted of shooting attorney Michael Burdell during an escape attempt. So doesn’t it seem a little fair that he should be shot to death as well? I think so.

Joe Barton Apologizes to BP for Harsh Treatment

Helping to prove what a good friend to the oil industry most politicians and even to a greater extend republicans are, GOP Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, apologized to the CEO of BP this week for Obama’s “shakedown” of the company. According to Open Secrets, Barton has received 1.5 million on campaign donations from the oil industry, so I can see why he would want to apologize to them. After all, wouldn’t want them to be upset at him personally and possibly reduce those donations at all.

Groups That Should Go Away

Image
Have you ever thought about how much better the world would be to live in, if we didn’t have radical organizations (hate groups) running around? Not only would it solve the problem of having to listen to them, or deal with their hate crimes, but it would reduce the overall population on the planet. And reduce the amount of stupid people having stupid children. My method of removing them would involve spontaneous combustion.

Here’s my list. Feel free to leave a comment with any you’d like to add.

Tea-baggers (aka tea-partiers) - kind of an obvious choice here. The Republican Party of late has been catering to this narrow minded minority, and it would be better suited to ignore them and make them go away.

Christian Evangelicals - liberal minded Christians are ok, but the right-wing loud mouth hate mongering portion should go.

Taliban, Al Qaeda, and Muslim Extremist– Same as the Christians. Liberal open minded Muslims are ok, but these three we could do without.

Skinheads, KKK, and Black sepa…

Children of Lesbians Better Behaved

For the conservatives and religious nuts running around out there, spouting off that gays and lesbians shouldn’t be allowed to adopt or have children, because straight couples are better parents; here is a study proving otherwise.

A study lasting nearly 25 years published in the journal Pediatrics showed that “Children from lesbian families rated higher in social, academic and total competence. They also showed lower rates in social, rule-breaking, aggressive problem behavior.” Overall the study showed that children of lesbian parents had fewer overall behavioral issues.

Unfortunately the study was funded by the group it was researching and only followed 78 children, but at least someone is studying this subject, and trying to look for actual factual proof to counteract the rhetoric of the religious right.

It’s now day 44 of the oil spill. 37 percent of the gulf is closed to fishing due to the spill Current estimates are 20 million to 40 million gallons of oil have leaked into the gulf On average there are 1 billion gallons of oil spilled into the worlds oceans (not counting this BP spill) 19.5 million barrels of oil are consumed in the United State per day 436,000 gallons of dispersant has been dumped into the gulf to break up the oil. 400 wildlife species threatened by the spill.
Rush Limbaugh proving that he is a dumbass and anyone who listens and believes anything he says is a dumbass:

“The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there. It’s natural. It’s as natural as the ocean water is.”


Apparently we should not be wasting our time trying to stop the spill and clean it up, it’s all good according to Rush.
