Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

Jason Russell Video: "Bone-y 2012"

I'll say this much; it isn't at all funny, and it is sad.
But if anyone thinks this is anything more than a
result of addiction, or mental illness, or 23 years
of living as a severely closeted homosexual, wake up.
(Maybe all of the above is accurate.)

There are far too many problems with the organization
backing the "KONY 2012" film  to dismiss them. 
The best breakdown I have seen can be read here:
Invisible Children Con

As always, ignore the smiles and pretenses; the truth
always comes out in the end.

Rush to Judgment?

"Crack smoke is a pain to disperse."
"His career  is up in smoke."
"Smoke and mirrors can't improve horseshit."

"Compensate much?"
"Too bad it doesn't kill quickly."
"Proud of all sick habits for far too long."

So, old ridiculous Rush Limbaugh
said something stupid and offensive.

I think the sun came up in the east pretty much
every day last week, too.

The only news here is that people are actually responding
with the acrimony and disgust due this pig.
He's been at this for far too long; it's only
fashionable to show outrage at this moment.

It is not all that amazing, the insipid and
ridiculous things that will fly out of the mouths
of untalented, drug addict, hacks who are on their
fourth marriage...while worrying over the moral center
of everyone else on the planet.

The world is full of Rushes, unfortunately...and they are all
fueled to (lack of) thought and action
by the assertions of the one with the national media outlet.

It wasn't even an accurate or pertinent remark,
which is of course the sort that the talk radio/
Religious Reich/Fox Not-even-close-to-News crowd
is interested in.
It was libelous, insensitive, cruel, invented
baiting to distract from the issue at hand.

(Something Republicans say they don't do or
approve of, but then turn around and allow their lapdogs
 like Rush and other mouthpieces to do on their behalf.)

A big firestorm of sleight-of-hand
has been raised in subsequent days, as Rush apologists
and ungrounded 'journalists' both seek to bring up the
Bill Maher non-controversy of his remarks regarding
Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

Simply put, Palin and Bachmann are public figures
who are seeking to impose their religious extremist views
on the entire populace, and have entire segments of the population
they have targeted for dismissal with their policies.
They have more than opened the door for criticism of any kind;
they are insane, and they are in fact a danger.

No one worries about the heatedness of the rhetoric
leveled against foreign terrorists;
why is there a double standard for how we speak out
against our home-grown, insanity-based terrorists,
who do need to be opposed?

If someone came forward, as a politician or talking head,
and suggested that--just as a for-instance--the Jews
should be put into treatment facilities so that they
could have "The Jew" prayed away, and be made 'whole'
in the eyes of 'God,' as Michelle Bachmann has done
regarding gay men and lesbian women, there would be a
public outcry unlike this country has ever seen.

But because of the public acceptance of maligning and
attacking persons who are homosexual (or perceived homosexual,
or who are questioning, etc.,) people are lackadaisical.
The spirit and the intent is equally horrific and
criminal, but public outrage has not been evidenced.

I do not naively imagine that there are not people
who do feel that way, or worse, regarding the Jews;
to get a small notion of what is going on in our country right
now, and why the antics of loose cannons and
sanitarium escapees like Palin, Limbaugh, and Bachmann
(and all the rest) must be opposed...
in whatever language necessary.

What a joke that the focus is on the verbiage of the
man standing up to the nuts,
and not the policies of the nuts that
prompted the dissent!

Slight Glitch: Putting an End to Horseshit

The Assholes of today, however, are defiant and bold;
relishing their douchy assholish nature, and even brashly,
aggressively reveling in it. "Too bad for you." They just
don't care.

Here's what I know, as regards a minor quagmire and
slightly annoying issue with repeat trespassers on my
property, and the sheriff department's reluctance to
take action;

I don't run from anything.

I don't alter my life or lifestyle to accommodate others.

I don't suffer fools gladly.

I don't intend to get worked up.

I've done all the peace-making and ignoring I intend to.

I know who you are, including little "Q & H" Tyler, et al,
and I am not impressed.

You are not the only ones in town with guns.

When you come onto my property, you forego the right
to be considered as anything other than a problem.

And I guarantee you that I know how to deal with problems.

I'm sorry you all don't have anything better to do than get 
drunk and seek out trouble by attempting to harass other
people. But I'm through overlooking it.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Rubbers

Oh, Mitt!
You do so protest (too much)
at the use of prophylactics
and abortions...
and yet;
could there be any greater
living testimony
 to the dire need to make these
tools available?

You are the epitomized proponent--
the greatest living billboard--
for making contraceptives available.

Drug Dealing to a Stronger America

Here in sleepy Donalsonville, Georgia, we are home to many
greats; high unemployment, high poverty, high drug trafficking.
When probably one third of your population is involved in
drug manufacture, drug sales, drug trafficking, or drug use,
it's little wonder you will eventually see some of the activity in
broad daylight.

(My only real question is, with so many involved in the production
and sale, who's left to buy the shit? All the church folks are
hooked on the prescription drugs and booze; what need do they
have for street stuff?)

But Donalsonville boasts the proud bragging rights to open,
proud, obvious drug dealing on its main drag (and several blocks
surrounding, whichever direction you choose to go,) all day,
all night, seven days a week. With law enforcement always
never a stone's throw away.

You know it's bad when uninformed little old ladies are
figuring out what's going on!

Yes, instead of a chicken in every pot, the illustrious city of Donalsonville
seems instead dedicated to "a drug dealer on every street corner."
Well, since there are no businesses left, it's not like they'll
interrupt the local economy.

Perhaps therein lies one of the explanations; if the sale of
drugs is keeping the young men and women of small town
America employed, is the morality and legality of the business
a concern? If nothing else is available, do what you need to, right?
Evidently our police force believes that.

I'm sure there is a valid reason--or ten--behind such an
obvious, brazen drug industry operating unmolested. 'Rumor' has
it that the former sheriff of Seminole County was getting more than his
fair cut of all the dealing, and that's why no one ever went to--or
stayed long in--jail.
It's the reason, they say, why selling prospered and became a part
of the fabric.

Add to that the fact that the only entertainment in this
No-Horse-Town is drugging, drinking, hanging out, screwing,
or getting into trouble with worse crimes, it makes sense the
deputies might be inclined to overlook the dealing as a
means of deferring 'worse' crimes like robbery, violence, murder,
rape, harassment, etc.

Oh, wait; most crimes are drug related! Either acted in
the commission of drug-related offense, or under the influence of drugs!
Hmmmnnn....another solution, then?

In "Barber Town," the 'Drug Lords' (a.k.a. street punks)
think they own the streets, and they challenge you for the right to drive
your car down their sales floor. Everybody knows about the Blue House
next to the railroad tracks, and even if you're been in town 10 minutes
you know what happens around Mr. Pip's day and night.

Perhaps the police don't intervene because they know that the
D.A. won't prosecute drug crimes (he won't.)

Maybe judges in this area aren't concerned or impartial either.

Maybe there isn't enough space in the jails for everyone
guilty of dealing in this town.
Maybe, as mentioned, the economic stability of this town
is actually dependent on an uncensored drug trade.

Seems they could always offer the "Seminole Solution"
if they wanted to get rid of drug dealers; I have never read
of a place where more 'suicides' take place while
prisoners are in custody.
(Honestly... you'd think the jails here would have a
ban on all shoe strings, bed sheets, and belts by now!)

Certainly, there can be no graft or corruption amongst
local law enforcement. That notion is too preposterous
even to be mentioned, let alone entertained, no matter how
evidenced some might find the idea. This is an upstanding,
moral, Christian, small southern town, and such things
'just aren't done here.'
(If you made it through that last bit with a straight face,
I have a bridge to sell you.)

Perhaps it's as simple as hinted above; the drug activity
is considered the lesser of alternate evils. If folks are
busy drugging, they'll be more relaxed--and distracted--
and less likely to up their game? (We've established that it's
a faulty notion, given statistics of crimes, but that doesn't
mean people can't erroneously cling to it!) I can certainly
see DPD doing a legitimate, proactive tactic such as this.

I mentioned a while back, before the newspaper changed
owners, that we had rarely witnessed a black man on their cover
unless he had been arrested for drug dealing or usage.
(The agenda behind which is obvious.)
Shortly after that, a decided turn in promoting positive black
faces on their cover occurred.

Do you think that after this, we might see an article on
the hidden epidemic in this small town? An expose' on
how large and uninterrupted the drug trade is, and possibly why
it is allowed to continue? Maybe even the high likelihood
of poverty, joblessness, homelessness, and death that encompasses
 the life of an active junkie? Or an in-depth study of all the
harm done by the dealing of drugs?

No, I don't think so either.
