Eat The Poor

So, this piece of idiocy won’t die:

drug-testin-testing-for-welfare-recipeants

Now, the major problem with this nonsense is the 4th Amendment, which protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure by the government, requiring a warrant and probable cause. Being poor is not a probable cause, so piss-testing the poor is unconstitutional. However, the 4th Amendment does not protect citizens from their private employers, so having to pee in a cup at work is not unconstitutional.

Sadly, a depressing number of people seem to be too stupid to make this very simple … There’s more of this shit. Click here.

Ribbity-Dibbity-Doo

Okay, so I just read the most amazing, jaw-droppingly insane essay* in the history of everything ever: an attempt to suggest that – had Andrea Dworkin only gone just a little bit further - she would have arrived at Christian marriage as the ideal.

I mean, it was a super-collider of batshittiness; like, “Hey, everybody. I hate mashed potatoes. They’re the honky-white offal of Beelzebub’s fluxing, irritable bowel, and that’s why the 426 Hemi is the best engine ever” level of crazy.

Man, I love the internet.

Just My Luck

So, my stepson is running a 104.3° temperature, probably the same illness that ran through the household over the past 2 weeks. I know this nasty little fucker of a bug, because it kicked my ass the length and breadth of Christendom.

It presented as a really ugly little chest/head cold, and while everyone else moved on from there, I was so fortunate as to develop a sinus infection so voluminous that it filled one ear. For the past week, I have have not been able to use the Bi-PAP machine for my sleep apnea, as my … There’s more of this shit. Click here.

What Dreams Don’t Come

I was going to talk about my dream a few days ago that a recording had been found of Johnny Cash covering AC/DC’s “Who Made Who”, but I had one of those super-vivid, reality-bleeding dreams the last time I slept.

In the dream, I had limited but still unbelievably cool telekinesis. Not enough to hurl cars, but enough to move household objects around. It was so ridiculously real in the dream that for the first 5-10 seconds upon waking up, I tried to move my pill bottle to my hand.

And then I remembered, “Oh, yeah. That … There’s more of this shit. Click here.

Less Popular Than Rapists

 

I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
– Vice President (and soon-to-be President) George Herbert Walker Bush, 1987

 

This little nugget of wisdom from a former President of the United States of America was neither prescient nor reflective, wise nor foolish. It was merely an obtuse echo, and one that has been resounding since the first human decided the real loonies were the ones running the asylum. Ever since that first atheist drew a free breath, the faithful have been trying to … There’s more of this shit. Click here.
