Thanks to spammers, I have to add captcha....

Akismet is fucked up badly, it screwed up my website for the second time this morning when I updated the plugin, so I have to go with another spammer plugin that uses captcha. I know people hate captcha, I fucking hate it but I get a shitload of spammers on this site, so I have no other choice folks. Sorry for the inconvenience, I really am. Please bear with me as I try to find something to use to stop [continue reading]

Sloan Gibson- are you shitting me?

The jerkwad now in charge of the VA, Sloan Gibson, is SO much better than Shinseki, after-all, he has 20 years experience.. in the fucking BANKING INDUSTRY. Someone give me a fucking shotgun please, this shit is ridiculous now.It’s almost comical if people’s lives weren’t at stake. The GOP, who have the memory of a fucking slug evidently, and will politicize anything including human lives, as this problem was decades in the making thanks to among other things, Bush and [continue reading]

Maya Angelou leaves us at 86 years of age.

It’s a good age to live to, no doubt…but we are all the poorer for her leaving. She was a wonder, this woman, who went through so much but came out the other side stronger and so much wiser for it. She will be missed by millions world-wide, for her wisdom, her humor, her beliefs in equality and her decency among many other things. It’s hard for me to write this as I idolized her, especially now in my older [continue reading]

The VA problems are decades in the making. Get off Shinseki's back.

The GOP itself has scuttled at least TWO major VA bills this congressional year. Those fuckers have the nerve to attempt to make this whole issue an Obama problem, when they fucking know it’s been a clusterfuck for decades just for starters. The Stars and Stripes writeup states Shinseki has faced plenty of firestorms in his life and come out on top. He was right on the Iraq War and Rumsfeld fired him for it. Rumsfeld couldn’t of been more [continue reading]

We are more segregated now than we were 60 years ago folks.

Saturday is the 60th anniversary of Brown v. the Board of Education. One would think we are better off than those days of old. But we ain’t folks….fuck no we ain’t…..far from it. As a good write-up at ProPublica tells us, segregation is worse now than it was then:In Tuscaloosa today, nearly one in three black students attends a school that looks as if Brown v. Board of Education never happened. Isn’t that just fucking peachy? Doesn’t it make you [continue reading]

NBA owner swims in the racist pond again. Hello Donald Sterling!

Once again, the racist owner of the LA Clippers, Donald Sterling has been purportedly busted saying a shitload of racist bullshit about the very people he makes his fortune off of. Its pathetic and disgusting among other things. The Bleacher Report has a good read on the history of his racism, which I will quote pieces of below, but first a few highlights…or lowlights from that report: In 2006, “The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday sued Los Angeles Clippers owner [continue reading]

Bundy makes racist comment, is anyone surprised?

Taking his cue from the conservative media nutjobs, Cliven Bundy has stepped in it righteously. As he enjoys his fifteen minutes of fame, the tax cheat has made disgusting racist remarks on the record which you can view via a Media Matters write-up. I won’t give the comment here as it’s as disgusting as it gets, but I will say that the public officials that were backing this stupid fuck to the hilt are now running in the opposite direction from [continue reading]
