Racist Utah Man Fires Obama Supporters

Are you looking to do business with a racist owned digital forensics company? Then boy have I got the place for you. Here is Terry Lee from Terry Lee Forensics:

“Love it. We had to let two employees go to cover new Obongocare [sic] costs and increased taxes,” Lee wrote. “Found two Obongo supporters and gave them the news yesterday. They wanted the idiot in the Whitehouse [sic], they reap the benefits.”

Neetzan Zimmerman points out that Urban Dictionary defines Obongo as a “play on Barack Hussein Obama II’s last name, citing his roots as a typical Apefrican, bongo beating, bush monkey.” But Mr. Lee doesn’t stop at just being a racist; he is also an idiot. Zimmerman also points out that Obamacare only requires business with 50 or more employees to provide those employees with health insurance. Mr. Lee’s company has nine.

How bout that global warming?

Do you remember this past winter when the idiot horde claimed that the major snowstorms on the east coast proved once and for all that global warming was a hoax?  So does the hottest January-June on record now prove that global warming is real?  I’m confused.

Truth is, it was ridiculous to claim that a snowstorm during the winter proved global warming was a hoax in the same way it would be ridiculous to claim that this one heat wave during the summer proves global warming is reality.  The difference is that realists have scientific data and trends on their side.  The other side has snow in the winter.  I’ll go with science on this one.

Former “Dubya” speechwriter David Frum on Rush Limbaugh’s latest biography:

Limbaugh has skillfully conjured for his listeners a world in which they are disdained and despised by mysterious elites — a world in which Limbaugh’s $4,000 bottles of wine do not exclude him from the life of the common man.

Could not have said it better myself.

Republican KY Senate Candidate Rand Paul on The Rachel Maddow Show:

Maddow:… How about desegregating lunch counters?

Paul: Well what it gets into then is if you decide that restaurants are publicly owned and not privately owned, then do you say that you should have the right to bring your gun into a restaurant even though the owner of the restaurant says ‘well no, we don’t want to have guns in here’ the bar says ‘we don’t want to have guns in here because people might drink and start fighting and shoot each-other.’ Does the owner of the restaurant own his restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant? These are important philosophical debates but not a very practical discussion…

Maddow: Well, it was pretty practical to the people who had the life nearly beaten out of them trying to desegregate Walgreen’s lunch counters despite these esoteric debates about what it means about ownership. This is not a hypothetical Dr. Paul.

Segregation questions should not be this difficult to answer.

Birthers v. Truthers…You’re Both F*cking Crazy

I see your birther and raise you a luck dragon

An issue that was more or less dead and buried has been revived by Jonah Goldberg at the Republican fun house known as The Corner.  For a reason unbeknownst to everyone but Jonah himself, he dives back into the insanity that is “birtherism” in order to make the argument that “birtherism” is less crazy than “trutherism”:

And while I am sure there are more elaborate and crazier versions of Birtherism, the basic allegation isn’t that crazy, at least in the abstract. Now, Trutherism, on the other hand, is a really insidious and evil claim…

Since the birth of “birtherism” (see what I did there), this has been a popular conservative argument.  Read more…

“I know my rights!”

“I know my rights!”

The above phrase has recently been made famous by Steve the Lawn Mower Guy as well as countless other Americans. This phrase has been uttered in defense for gun-ownership, in arguments against compulsory seat belt use, and the installation and use of traffic calming camera-ticketing systems. An argument based on the inherent value of one’s unalienable rights is difficult to debate. However, using a couple simple examples I intend to illustrate the hypocrisy amongst individuals on the left and right that absolutely grinds my gears… Read more…

Ignorant Joe the Plumber in an inane interview with AOL:

Probably the 1800s, because men and women rose and fell on their own strengths. Government wasn’t as powerful as it is now, and in America you could make it or not make it depending on your efforts and your work. Men held to their word. I like that kind of black and white. [emphasis mine]

This is entirely true as long as you were not black, or a woman hoping to vote or have a meaningful career, or a native american, or so on and so on.  This guy always has been and always will be…an idiot.
