Paranoid Morons Win Again

Dunkin' Donuts pulls an image of Rachel Ray wearing a black and white paisley scarf because bed-wetting cowards seem to think the scarf bears a resemblance to a keffiyeh.

In and of itself, a keffiyeh isn't a bad thing. It's simply a headdress worn by some Arab men in certain cultures. But apparently the bed-wetting cowards led by Michelle Malkin are so scared that anything that resembles their vision of terrorism must be immediately banned and removed so they can live without (even more) fear.

I urge everyone who isn't afraid of terrorists to go out and buy black and white paisley scarves and wear them as much as possible. The Malkins of this world deserve to cower in their manufactured fear.

More Rants

Dreams from Obama's mother, my eighth cousin and a girl who lived in the town next to the one I grew up in.

I think June 7th should be celebrated heavily. I won't tell you how *I* plan to celebrate, it's not safe for work.

Personal pet peeve: children who haven't had their vaccinations being allowed in school, where they can kill children who HAVE had their vaccinations. Vaccines do not cause autism, and only a complete moron would continue to believe it after all the proof. And make no mistake, lack of vaccinations kills. But idiots still argue about it.

The Brad Blog argues against mail-in voting. I really don't agree with this, as I find I prefer my mail-in voting to going to some local church to vote, but the points made are valid and should be considered.

Disgusting shock-jocks tell potential jurors to lie. They claim they are simply trying to show how the justice system is unfair, but they've gone a bit too far by instructing their listeners how to vote if they get on a jury.

Racism is a disease, and the scumbags behind these shirts are terminally ill.

Boing Boing links to Reason TV: Mississippi Drug War Blues. Cory Maye, at home with his 18 month old daughter, was attacked in the middle of the night by men who didn't identify themselves. He hunkered down in a room with his daughter, and shot at the intruders, killing one of them. The intruders were police on a drug raid. Once again: The Drug War is stupid and must stop before more innocent people are killed.

Bush should be in prison. Preferably for the rest of his life. The only reason I don't think he should be executed as a traitor is because I don't believe in state murder.

Many vets can no longer vote due to Republican voter ID laws. Neither can Nuns and Students. Leave it to Republicans to make sure people can't vote.

Speaking of voting rights: Forgetting the 24th Amendment.

Ben Stein is a moron. He'd better lose his glasses, since they are the product of science, and thus (according to him) little better than Nazi tech.

Why I support equal rights, particularly for marriage. Remember, bigots refused to recognize mixed ethnic marriages once. The world moves on, people grow up.

George Bush and Oil Prices

Mark Evanier enters the wayback machine, and checks out an article from the 2000 election campaign in which George W Bush, oilman, promised to lower oil prices:
Gov. George W. Bush of Texas said today that if he was president, he would bring down gasoline prices through sheer force of personality, by creating enough political good will with oil-producing nations that they would increase their supply of crude.

''I would work with our friends in OPEC to convince them to open up the spigot, to increase the supply,'' Mr. Bush, the presumptive Republican candidate for president, told reporters here today. ''Use the capital that my administration will earn, with the Kuwaitis or the Saudis, and convince them to open up the spigot.''
Yeah, right. Thanks for nothing, Mr. Bush.
