Remember some months back when a lady claimed that her daughter’s talking doll said, “Islam is the light”? Well, now she’s hearing the same message in a Nintendo DS game. Ok, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this woman is fucking nuts.
As you read the story linked to below, notice the complete lack of skepticism. It’s reported as if she is simply factually correct, with not a word to suggest that she HEARS SHIT THAT ISN’T THERE.
Occam’s Razor, people, Occam’s Razor.
Media uncritically repeats possibly schizophrenic claims
South Carolina state senator Robert Ford wants to lock up people who use “lewd” language. Under this addled-brained asshole’s proposed law, using profanity could get you 5 years in jail and up to $5000 in fines.
According to the story linked below:
“Which words are exactly considered profane is
still unclear, but the bill does have a list of qualifications for
profanity including words or actions that are lewd, vulgar or indecent
Well, thanks for clearing that up, Senator Douchebag.
I’ve got five bucks to bet that this assclown will eventually get caught involved in either a gay relationship or be found to have a substantial kiddie porn collection (no, I’m not equating being gay with being a perv; it’s that moralizing losers like this tend to lump them together and have enormous issues about their own “sinful” proclivities).
Oddly, the article doesn’t mention this guy’s political affiliation, but come on, you know he’s a Republican. That’s the GOP for you, always working on the big issues in America–like cussing.
They’ll play football in their nighties, but they absolutely refuse to do it in a nudist resort. Yeah, sure. We might be freaks parading around in underwear but at least we’re not nudists, goddammit! Hey, you’ve got to draw the line somewhere!
“Knowing stuff” is for sissies. This time it’s North Dakota instead of some southern state that’s out to ban books that might be “controversial.” The controversial book in this case? The 1994 best-selling book, “Midnight In The Garden Of Good and Evil.” None of school board members who voted to ban this book had actually read it, of course. We don’t know if these people even know HOW to read. And I presume that anyone in that school district is forbidden to see the movie as well.
Banning Books Still in Fashion.
So, a guy owns a fishing shop in Florida. On the side of his building, he has an artist paint a mural of fish. The city says the mural is a sign advertising his business and that, since he didn’t get a permit for it, he’s in violation of the law. The guy says it’s art, not a sign and he doesn’t need a permit for art. The city levies a daily fine.
This is the part I like. Pissed at the city but not wanting to pay the daily fine, the guy covers the mural–with a banner that has the First Amendment on it.
Balls in your court, City of Clearwater. Go ahead, say that the First Amendment is illegal. This’ll be great to watch.
