Jonah Goldberg uses Game of Thrones to highlight Hobby Lobby case

fuckin-a smart like as fuck

I have a few utterly ill-informed layman’s thoughts on the Hobby Lobby decision but they’re yet poorly cobbled together, needing a great deal of fine tuning, clarity and organization. In lieu of boring the decent readers of this internet with any of that I thought I’d turn my attention to a far finer source of trenchant legal analysis, Jonah Goldberg:

Abortion-rights protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court building on Monday holding signs that read “Birth Control: Not My Boss’s Business.”

Much to their chagrin, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito agreed in his ruling in the Hobby Lobby case.

Gee I thought the protestors didn’t want…oohhh. I get it. Touché, turtle.

Of course, that’s not how supporters of the government’s contraception mandate see it. They actually believe that birth control is their boss’s business, and they want the federal government to force employers to agree.

Good ole’ Jonah doesn’t mess around, he gets right to the flesh of the matter. Everyone knows the government can force your boss to lance the boil on your ass. That’s of course typical boss business. But that doesn’t mean the government can also force your employer to do disgusting things. They can’t make him give you contraceptives just because you managed to make sex any fun. No one gets to work both sides of a somatic-legal argument, Madame. That’s not his business. I mean it’s as if, well. Let’s see if I can put this another way…

If I like to dress up as a character from Game of Thrones on weekends, pretending to fight snow zombies and treating my mutt like she’s a mystical direwolf, that’s none of my employer’s business.

Not your employer’s business. Altogether ludicrous. Entirely very silly. That is until one of the stupid snow zombies nearly pokes your eye out, detaching a retina. Then your boss has to cancel his vacation and gallop all the way back to Mordor (sp?) to do a little eye surgery. Why? Because suddenly it’s his business.

But if I ask my employer to pay for my trip to a Game of Thrones fan convention, I am asking him to make it his business.

A trip to the Nerd Prom, overrun with savages, who shall not be denied their earthly pleasures. Wobbly swords and brittle porn are what they’re into, and for these Medievalists the Pill was invented. But let’s not forget, Gwendolyne, why Sex was invented: you having babies. And that’s what your boss is into. And do I really have to remind you that telling everybody what to do is his thing, too? That’s his business. This way the sensible argument against contraception in your health plan is made plain. And I’m relieved to know your office manager’s moral sense isn’t given over to sex and pleasure because that sort of depravity could hasten the return of some dark ages…

…that may or may not be unfair, but it’s his right.

As we can agree that Game of Thrones is quite good fun but, ultimately, not the swine flu. Well so much for my argument. It’s the greatest analogy of a Supreme Court ruling I’ve ever read.

Coming soon to a forsaken Earth near you

muslin death charge

We have news from the Finger Wagging Musselman Dog Run Nuncio:

If the Muslim sees a kaffir with nice clothes, the kaffir has to take his clothes off and give them to the Muslim. The kaffir, when he walks down the street, he has to wear a red belt around his neck, and he has to have his forehead shaved, and he has to wear two shoes that are different from one another. He [the non-believer] is not allowed to walk on the pavement, he has to walk in the middle of the road, and he has to ride a mule. They can have churches, but are not allowed to ring the bell….

We cover up all the women and put a niqab on their faces, including Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton as well, the whore, the fornicator.

Vox Popoli runs to the bat-phone. Look at them! Foreign ways. Bold talk. Barbecued food. This is murder.

The choice facing the West
Sunday, June 29, 2014

Islam or Christianity. Secularism is not an available option. Here is the Muslim vision for Britain under Sharia…

[...ulululululu...]

Christianity will survive its abandonment by Western civilization. Western civilization will not survive its abandonment of Christianity.

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED. THEY HAD A PHONE.

AND HOUSE FLIES TORN. LIMB FROM LIMB.

Libtards, dildos and guns

you got a real purty barrel

New York based Evolve Together has taken on the task of getting Americans to be more responsible with their guns. They’ve developed and are now publicizing a “code” for gun folks – a belief system upon which simple gun safety practices can be popularized across the country. These are beliefs that responsible gun owners, the shrinking and few, already hold. So it’s nothing ‘progressive,’ or new.

The Code includes tenets such as I believe that owning a gun is a responsibility. And that gun safety is the most important part of that responsibility. I believe a gun in the wrong hands is a dangerous thing. I will be answerable for every gun I own at all times.

To that end Evolve recently recorded and posted a video relating to the ‘wrong hands’ tenet. It warns of the dangers of children getting ahold of unsecured weapons. The theme: If they find it, they’ll play with it.



I heartily endorse both the group and the ad. I also wish the good people of Evolve the very best of luck in this campaign because I know, as sensible and apolitical as they may be, that gun owners will soon find them, hate them, and bully them in a manic, senseless, and hysterical fashion. The wingnut comments on the YouTube thread are exactly what you’d expect. No one can ask an American to keep his guns out of the reach of little children because LIBERAL FUCKTARD.


That’s what the Jews thought… I’ve seldom heard a statement as stupid as guns aren’t a necessity. They are a necessity if you don’t want to get killed. So far I haven’t heard of the invention pussies such as yourself have come up with to end violence. IN FACT, crime is higher per capita in majority liberal cities than anywhere else…

Go back to playing He-Man with your dildo now sport…


This was a great PSA… Then they went and made it about guns. Seriously, using dildos as an allegory to guns is completely fucking ridiculous. Leave it about making sure you lock up your sex toys parents.

Though I’d like to know why Married Mom B leaves her toys at Married Mom A’s house… Way to push extramarital relations Bloomberg! Score 1 for polyamory. 


Humorous and thinly veiled gun control add (just like the others by this user) but also a statement of our weak society and our undisciplined children.

How about teach your kids not to touch things that don’t belong to them? Respect for rules placed? Respect for your parents room?
Sex toys, firearms, power tools, whatever.

I knew better than to be digging in my mom’s closet or dressers. Quick way to get smacked with whatever I happened to find there.


I’m sorry, children playing with rubber penises is wildly inappropriate. Reported.



Until I see any evidence to the contrary I’ll linger in the belief that our gun nuts are insane.

The solipsism of Dick Cheney

attack of the wuss

I apologize for being absent so long. I have a job that eats up most of my time, and then there’s a freewheeling World Cup that’s amazing and brilliant. But there are also other things.

There is a former vice president who crawls out of his taxpayer subsidized transplant-ward hospital bed to remind us how trivial human life is. Other human life.

“I think we did what we had to do,” Cheney added, saying he is still not convinced Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction before the 2003 invasion. “And you don’t get to go back and say, well, we would have — what if we’d ignored all the intelligence?”

If he’d ignored his own cooked-up intelligence there’d be 4,500 ghosts incarnate watching the Americans take it to Belgium on Tuesday afternoon. I’m not scared of the possibility, I welcome them all. But it’ll never happen of course. The prospect would require an apology from Dick Cheney and a time machine, and the former, as we all know, is a complete fiction. Even if he could go back, there’d be little point in it while there are still so many Americans to be burned on the bonfire of his endless desires.

“The Rand Corporation just recently published a study that shows there’s been a 58 percent increase in the number of al Qaeda-type terrorist groups in the last four years. Fifty-eight percent! Doubling the number of terrorists roughly, and they’re spreading out from West Africa all across North Africa to East Africa, up through the Middle East, all the way around to Indonesia…”

“Are you indicating that we could be on track for something worse than 9/11?” [Hasslebeck] asked…

“You know, I can’t say at this point specifically when something like that might happen. But it would be foolish of us to ignore the extent to which there are people who — terrorist-sponsoring states who have in fact tried to provide nuclear technology.”

Summer rerun. They’ll shove an atom bomb up your ass or I’m not Dick Cheney. This man has stared his own death in the face, has watched thousands die in Iraq, has been acutely aware that he’s responsible for the slaughter, and hasn’t been moved by any of it. Dick sleeps like a baby.

Which brings me to a Charles Pierce piece. He decries the rising tide of cruelty in our country, particularly as it seeps into our politics.

It does not have to be this way. After the greatest exercise of systematized cruelty in the country’s history, Abraham Lincoln gave the greatest speech ever given by an American president, and in its greatest passage, he called hold, enough.

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Lincoln’s second inaugural struck me. But not in the usual way, as I paid new attention to this part: “…with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right…” Lincoln tells us about managing to make good decisions: We have “to see the right.” It’s something that must be understood before it can be done. Given a complex situation the best choice isn’t the immediate impulse that comes from your gut, to be defended at all costs. Choosing right over wrong is something that needs to be worked at.

This is what Dick Cheney rejects. He is right before he can know the first thing. He is right when he invades Iraq. He is right at the same time all his predictions about the war are wrong. He is right while Americans there by the thousands are being killed. Now we’re out of Iraq and he’s right to demand we send soldiers back in, regardless of how predictably they’ll suffer and die. Right and wrong do not exist outside of Dick Cheney, and these things never will.

So much for that amazing historic World Cup win…

yecch

39 seconds.

Michael Bradley has got this
That’s all that was left in the game. 39 seconds and the U.S. would beat Portugal, the 4th best team in the world. America would become the first team to advance from 2014′s Group of Death…

But no.


Remember: It is not appropriate to kill him. America doesn’t love soccer that much. Please adjust your broken heartedness/playerhate accordingly.

This week’s lesson in gun safety (#25)

lessons in gun safety

For this week’s lesson in how obviously safe guns are and how clearly responsible gun owners can be we travel to Sarasota County, Florida. Where we defer to firearms safety officer Asa Masotti:

Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the Walgreens at 3601 Bee Ridge Road just past midnight June 9 following reports of a man being shot in the parking lot.

Psst, dude, wanna buy a gun? This is why Walgreens was put on God’s green Earth.

After questioning, deputies learned Masotti had accidentally shot a man he did not know while trying to sell him a handgun.

What kinda gun is it, maaan? Can it cure a cold? That’s why I parked here.

After asking the man if he was interested in buying a gun, Masotti produced a silver 9mm handgun that accidentally fired as he was pulling it out, the bullet hitting the victim in the thigh.

I think it’s a…*bang*. It looks like a Remington War Wound. It could be a Colt 45 Seconds Then You Bleed Out. Anyway the mysterious thing sure works good – too good, I think – and pardon me but now I really have to go. Welcome to a typical day here in America. It’s all the predictable result, I believe, of allowing civilians to buy Zicam at a discount.

When a friend of Masotti’s arrived soon after, witnesses say Masotti tried to give him the gun and told him to get rid of it out of fear of going to prison for shooting someone. The friend instead assisted the man who was shot, making sure 911 was called and remained on scene.

What sort of friend is that? He won’t take the fall for the shooting, and he’s trying to keep the eyewitness alive. Stevie Wonder and Dionne Warwick will not be singing your praises any time soon, mister helpful.

The victim, 27-year old Benjamin Smith, suffered a shattered femur and was flown to Blake Medical Center, undergoing surgery soon after. Smith was interviewed in the Blake ER and said Masotti was extremely remorseful, apologetic and scared.

Scared? I wonder why.

Masotti, who has five prior arrests for Burglary, Aggravated Battery and Domestic Violence, was taken into custody June 18th and charged with Improper Exhibition of a Dangerous Weapon.

I also wonder if poor Ben is aware of all the raps for armed robbery he dodged when the gun went off. Dodging bullets, of course, is a trickier matter. Maybe it’s a bad idea to buy a gun from a guy lurking in a Walgreens parking lot? It’s always a bad idea to be shot, by a weapon, point blank. From this we once again conclude: The more guns you have, the safer your thigh bone is.

I see Fred Kagan has sidled out of his spiderhole

blood reign o'er thee

They keep coming, with their new push toward Baghdad. And I’ve only got so much time outside of working and sleeping. It’s like playing a game of whack-a-mole, only substituting the balding heads of the former Masters of the Universe.

That alternative is to act boldly and decisively to help stop the advance of the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)—without empowering Iran…This would mean aiming at the expulsion of foreign fighters, both al Qaeda terrorists and Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah regular and special forces, from Iraq.

This would require a willingness to send American forces back to Iraq. It would mean not merely conducting U.S. air strikes, but also accompanying those strikes with special operators, and perhaps regular U.S. military units, on the ground.

Fred Kagan wants full-blown War in Iraq number three: This Time We’re Serious. Just who is this lunatic?

You don’t remember? He was one of the most trusted think-tankers in George W. Bush’s foreign policy orbit. He was a founder of the Neo-Con fantasy cabal Project for the New American Century. All they wanted to do was re-shape the entire planet to suit our superpower whimsies. The PNAC heavies were like the writing staff for Imperial Eye for the Commander Guy.

In its “Preface”, in highlighted boxes, Rebuilding America’s Defenses states that it aims to:

ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for the U.S. military:

• defend the American homeland;
• fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
• perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
• transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs”;

In case you were skimming, PNAC’s second goal there for the American military was ‘fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars.’ That’s everything you need to know about Fred Kagan, even today.

Now you’re up to date, so you won’t be surprised to read this:

ISIS will likely be able to disrupt the flow of oil from northern Iraq into Turkey with the gains it has already made – and has demonstrated its ability to conduct large-scale and well-coordinated attacks into southern Iraq, potentially threatening the oil fields there.

And so, the current impending defeat is much worse than the one we accepted so blithely in 1975.

Fred Kagan himself would never have gone to war in Vietnam – heavens! – because there were no economic interests in play. What do you think he is, an animal? And tell me, who loves above all else the politics of mutual respect, not to mention Chinese Communism? [Fred: Me! I do!]

This war won’t end with U.S. personnel escaping from the embassy roof (although that might happen as well). There is, in fact, no end in sight for this war now, especially if we allow Iraq to go down. A policy of retreat and abandonment remains as it has always been the fastest road to endless war.

And there you have the perfect Kagan send-off. You know what the root cause of infinity war is? It’s the lack of war. Better invade on all sides, just to be safe.

June of 2014 – those were the days my friend…

iraq

Siberian saluki shit on a speckendick shingle, we’ve got John McCain again telling us to Do The Right Thing in Iraq. As if it mattered to us anymore in the least. As if it mattered to sane Americans back then. It doesn’t matter.

Now we’ve got war architect Paul Wolfowitz begging us to invade another country.

When Meet The Press host David Gregory asked the former Bush official for advice on how to mitigate the potential terrorist threat merging from ISIS, saying “what do you do then, as a policy matter, to stop this,” Wolfowitz responded that the Obama administration must convince the Middle East that the U.S. “is serious,” arguing, “I would do something in Syria.”

And then there’s Bill Kristol whining that we’re no longer dying over there.

“It’s a disaster made possibly by our ridiculous and total withdrawal from Iraq in 2011.” Kristol went on to suggest that the war in Iraq is not over: “President Obama said two days before election day, in 2012, Iraq is on the path of defeat, the war in Iraq is over. That was enough to get him re-elected. Iraq is on the path of defeat. Neither is true. It’s a disaster for our country.”

Golly. Only in right-wing world do the good times necessarily go on forever. And it’s all very serious, heady and seductive but I do feel like there’s a certain something missing. As if someone had been denied his rightful place at the butchers cotillion. Where’s our dear Tom Friedman?

“I think it was unquestionably worth doing Charlie, and I think that looking back that I now certainly feel I understand what the war was about … We needed to go over there basically uhm, and, uh, uhm take out a very big stick, right in the heart of that world and burst that bubble … And what they needed to see was American boys and girls going house to house from Basra to Baghdad uhm, and basically saying ‘Which part of this sentence don’t you understand? You don’t think we care about our open society, you think this bubble fantasy we’re going to just let it go? Well. Suck. On. This.’ Ok?“

The Times’ Mustache de Morte must have something timely and trenchant to say about the Iraq situation, don’t you think?

Having just returned from Iraq two weeks ago, my own thinking is guided by five principles, and the first is that, in Iraq today, my enemy’s enemy is my enemy.

Al Qaeda’s biggest enemy of course would be us, the United States of America. Carrying that forward, with our craniums fizzling with the finer points of Monsignor Professor’s man-Fried Mespopamic Math, we are urged to multiply all of the factors, and we are in addition begged to carry all of the vital integers, so that we are fully empowered to calculate, and then discover, that the only sane solution to the sticky situation would be, umm, of course, a self-inflicted airstrike. ALSO: People.

Other than the Kurds, we have no friends in this fight. Neither Sunni nor Shiite leaders spearheading the war in Iraq today share our values.

It wasn’t so long ago the Arabs needed to have Tom’s cock crammed down their throats. But now for whatever reason he’s not concerned any more that they’re woefully ignorant of Western sexual habits. Tom is now complaining that they haven’t yet become the sort of personal partners he can build a satisfactory life with. 100,000 funerals later they’re not exactly marriage material, and why they haven’t come around is a real mystery.

John McCain stinks like a bayonted cadaver

war

John McCain should go back to Arizona and disappear inside one of the many mansions he acquired through nuptials. Let him despair over Iraq’s disintegration there, inside a musty man-cave haunted by ESPN’s broadcast clowns. I can’t fathom the spell he’s cast upon the brilliant media but I know that when a person can’t add two and two together he’s no mathematician. It infuriates me that someone responsible for sending thousands of our friends and neighbors to die in a wrenching clusterfuck isn’t being basted in boiling tar and slapped with ostrich feathers.

“Do you believe that the people of Iraq, or at least a large number of them, will treat us as liberators?”

“Absolutely.”

No one in recent memory has been more cavalier.

“There is not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shias, so I think they can probably get along.”

And no one, given the seriousness of the matter – annihilation – has been more eager to bolt toward hot cameras and microphones and weigh in on the side of human sacrifice.

“We’re going to win this victory. Tragically, we will lose American lives, be it will be brief. We’re gonna find out massive evidence of weapons of mass destruction.”

McCain refuses to contemplate he’s ever been wrong. This thought is not allowed. He is a cocksure agent of death.

Umm my director is asking me not to talk to you anymore

I doubt that

Creationist David Isaacs has been busy. Practicing his Think Fu.

He said during an episode of “Creation Today” that he had studied works by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, E.O. Wilson, and other “purveyors of evolutionary thought” and found himself in “a very, very dark place,” reported the Friendly Atheist blog.

Rommel, you magnificent bastard. I read your book.

“You have to start asking questions: Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?” Isaacs said, as one of his hosts gasps.

What about “rain”? If that stuff is true I suppose it would be alright for me to piss on your leg. Hello. What’s that Newton? Try “gravity”? I take it for granted we should sit around and smack our heads with hammers. All day. No wonder Americans hate Science.

Goodbye Eric Cantor, my friend, everyone hated you

teabaggers

This is hugely entertaining. The sniveling backstabbing TRUE CONSERVATIVE proto-usurper of the Speaker of the House position, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, has been defeated in tonight’s Virginia primary – perhaps ending a once-promising (not to mention underhanded) career. The agent of change in this particular tragedy, tee-hee, would be…the surely-dead Tea Party. Pray marvel bystanders at The Irony oh my golly it is To Laugh:

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker.

Cantor dreamed of replacing the Speaker and then moving his fellow House members appreciably to the right(!). To that end he frequently engaged in double-dealing and ex-parte gymnastics behind John Boehner’s back to make his job impossible, and to make him look like a feckless dolt.

But for all that clever scheming and maneuvering he couldn’t even beat an unknown with a grand total of $40,000 in his war chest, a fraction of Cantor’s well-connected $2 million. So his time is done. Here come the howler monkeys to tell you why…

“Eric Cantor’s loss tonight is an apocalyptic moment for the GOP establishment,” said L. Brent Bozell, chairman of ForAmerica, a conservative group that targeted Cantor throughout the primary. “The grassroots is in revolt and marching”…

Brat exposed discontent with Cantor in the solidly Republican, suburban Richmond 7th Congressional District by attacking the lawmaker on his votes to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown, as well as his support for some immigration reforms.

Eric Cantor is a political cadaver tonight because he was certifiably insane only about 98% of the time. The second most trusted GOP leader in the House forced a government shutdown only a little while ago, which kicked up a firestorm of bad p.r., caused the Republicans terrible harm, and forced him to grab his fellow rebels and run back to D.C. before the party blew its brains out in a game of Russian roulette played out before the nation’s eyes. And that’s the reason why, among other notions as treasonous as NOT rifle-hunting immigrants like bubonic squirrels, that the Tea Party found him an easy target for Virginia’s Thorazine caucus: He was a liberal. So hang his carcass high in the Jefferson Davis Memorial Smokehouse, boys, and start sucking down some of that sweet sweet moonshine. Because the country will surely be whistlin’ Dixie a few months from now…

Will exhibits a deft touch with the victims of rape

*holes

George Will wants to talk about rape. The word ‘snide’ comes to mind.

Colleges and universities are being educated by Washington and are finding the experience excruciating. They are learning that when they say campus victimizations are ubiquitous (“micro-aggressions,” often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate.

The privileges of going to a hospital, then later to trial? What an introductory paragraph. All of his arguments have to follow from here. But there’s no indication that rape is a horrific crime that needs to be taken seriously. There are only Will’s epic mockery and disparagement of victims.

And academia’s progressivism has rendered it intellectually defenseless now that progressivism’s achievement, the regulatory state, has decided it is academia’s turn to be broken to government’s saddle.

Catch that bit? Government be raping academia. Sometimes bad things happen, to you, but then there are crimes. THE INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH.’Two can play at this game’ George is telling you. Still think rape is serious, dude?

Consider the supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. “sexual assault.”

Sexual assault is barely a thing in his world. It’s something somebody probably made up. So to be fair, to him, we need to set it aside as “sexual assault.” As if.

Now the Obama administration is riding to the rescue of “sexual assault” victims. It vows to excavate equities from the ambiguities of the hookup culture, this cocktail of hormones, alcohol and the faux sophistication of today’s prolonged adolescence of especially privileged young adults.

And look at his view of university students: confused, overwrought, oversexed, privileged, immature, and stupid. George can’t believe a woman exhibiting any of these traits could be assaulted. She’s too beneath his dignity to earn any sympathy.

Since he oozed his way over to Fox News Will has been less and less concerned with acting civilized and it really shows. This screed is no different from anything your drunken uncle would yell at Jerry Springer. George is just the oak panel version of white trash.
