I’m baaaaack. Let’s see what’s in the funneh folder for today.
I’m baaaaack. Let’s see what’s in the funneh folder for today.
Sitting here, drinking coffee while recovering from a long trip, Hubby brought up a very good point concerning our esteemed Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner. U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled the NSA gathering of bulk data was illegal, admonishing a lower court for throwing out the case and stating the practice is legal.
“We hold that the text of § 215 cannot bear the weight the government asks us to assign to it, and that it does not authorize the telephone metadata program.”
Section 215 is crux of the law. Senator Rand Paul is filibustering it as I type. So what does Speaker Boehner do?
He punts to Senate Majority Leader McConnell, not to dismantle the law, not to restructure the law, but to figure out whether the private companies or the government should hold the metadata!!!! Because no private company would ever cave in to a government demand, right?
The most telling part? He would not answer whether he supports an extension. And you know what that means. If he didn’t support it, he would have said so while wrapped in Old Glory. Our liberties are stripped from us like onion skin on a daily basis, and all he cares about is who holds the power.
It’s time to kick this SOB out to the curb.
Wine’s in the fridge, let’s chill out and see what’s in the funneh folder for today.
Wow, that week went by fast. Let’s see what’s in the funneh folder for today.
By now everyone is aware of the jihad attack in Garland, Texas. Two terrorists were just too thin-skinned to allow anyone much less a lowly woman “insult” their so-called god, and thus decided to drive over to a Mohammed-drawing contest and shoot everyone dead. Because they are peaceful like that. Anyway, Sandhya Somashekhar, a “social change reporter” for Washington Post was just not happy about the events and decided to take Pam Geller, the host of said event to task. My response to each paragraph follows thus: *flips the bird*
Event organizer offers no apology after thwarted attack in Texas
No shit, you idiot. She didn’t attempt to kill anyone. She was exercising her rights, just as YOU are exercising YOUR right to write such crap.
Pamela Geller, the woman behind the Texas cartoon contest attacked by two gunmen late Sunday, knew what she was doing when she staged the controversial event featuring irreverent depictions of the prophet Muhammad in Garland, Tex.
Of course she knew!! EVERYONE LIVING IN REALITY KNEW!!! She was making a point sharper than the one on your head: WE WILL NOT BOW TO ISLAM.
The Dallas suburb had hosted a pro-Muslim conference in January, about the time Islamist terrorists killed a dozen journalists with the satirical French publication Charlie Hebdo. Geller, a blogger and fierce critic of what she calls the “Islamization” of America, wanted to make a statement.
Excuse me, but did not the pro-Muslim conference also make a statement? Did they denounce the Charlie Hebdo attacks? No, they had their own agenda complete with ice cream and Maghrib. Your attempt to link their demonstration as a “Stand with Hebdo” shindig is beyond appalling.
So she sponsored the Jihad Watch Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in the same exhibition hall as the earlier conference. She and her associates invited 200 people and hired 40 heavily armed off-duty police officers and security guards to protect them.
So ask yourself WHY they needed the “heavily-armed” protection if Islam is such a peaceful religion.
If the contest was intended as bait, it worked. Police say two men drove 1,000 miles from Phoenix, shot at a police car outside the event and were quickly killed by one of the hired guards. The shooting has been condemned by Muslim leaders, and Geller, too, has come under fire for staging an event many viewed as purposely provocative.
Bait? BAIT?? Are you fucking kidding me?? She has every fucking RIGHT to hold that contest, and when you think about it, it fucking worked. Two terrorists were flushed out and down the drain, and now ISIS/ ISIL/ IS/ Newest camelfuckers are coming out and claiming to have other terrorists in wait in several states, in our country. The same country that gave them freedom to hold that pro-Muslim shindig.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Geller said she and her fellow organizers were “prepared for violence” this past weekend. In tweets immediately after the shooting, Geller appeared almost gleeful that she had been right.
That is libelous, and this so-called writer should be worried that Geller may sue. Anyone familiar with Twitter knows she was reporting the gunshots, and the casualties. There were no exclamation points, no ” Told ya so!!” and certainly no glee coming from a woman who was the target of an assassination.
The writer goes on to write several paragraphs about Ms. Geller, softly condemning her as a “housewife” and ridiculing her attempts to bring Islam into the light for what it is. She even brought up her “unsuccessful” lawsuit to bring forth the ad campaign: “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah.” The one that NYC upheld as being free speech, and which is currently running on MTA buses (MTA has since decided not to display any ads on the buses, because fweelings). Because she uses a Palestinian Authority quote, it is hate speech. What the writer doesn’t realize is that she is right, for the wrong reason. It IS hate speech, but not against Islam. She needs to go change her diaper.
Finally, she gives the last voice to Alia Salem, director for the DFW chapter of CAIR.
Salem said the local Muslim community has been on edge ever since. Controversy has also flared around a private arbitration service for Muslims that opened in Dallas last year — called an Islamic “tribunal” — and in connection with the shooting death of an Iraqi immigrant shot outside his Dallas apartment in March as he photographed his first snowfall.
“The North Texas Muslim community has been very nervous and scared,” Salem said. “Tension has been very high since January.”
As tragic as that death is, the fact remains that the gentleman who was shot and killed was not targeted due to his ethnicity. The fucker just decided to shoot indiscriminately after someone shot at his girlfriend’s apartment. I am a firm believer in that every crime is a hate crime, but as defined by CAIR, this certainly doesn’t meet the requirements. However, I am still waiting for the backlash against Muslim communities that was predicted on 9/12/2001.
The fact that the terrorists PROVED Geller’s point escapes this so-called reporter. Perhaps she will experience some backlash for her stupidity, and think twice about asking a victim to apologize.
Let’s see what’s in the funneh folder for today.
This made me think of Aggie.
I know it doesn’t feel like it in parts of our country, but we are well into Spring and some of us are enjoying temperatures to match. Today’s offering is a simple twist on a classic.
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 5 oz. Grapefruit juice
- Grapefruit slices for garnish (optional)
Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake gently. Strain into a highball glass over ice, and garnish with a grapefruit slice. I prefer Ruby Red grapefruit juice since it is sweeter. If using herbs to garnish like rosemary or basil (don’t knock it), use regular grapefruit juice. Either way, this will keep you cool when the weather finally decides to cooperate :)
My cousin sent me a huge email of Texas humor, so I took it as a sign.
