Batshit Crazy Report: Victoria Jackson

So former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson has been a bit of a wingnut for years but she's now jumped completely into the Batshit Crazy club.  Apparently she is privy to highly classified information we're not because she hosts a web talk show.  Since I have a podcast talk show, why wasn't I invited?  I can tell you why:  because I'm not batshit crazy.  Jackson has entered the self reinforcing circle jerk of BELIEVERS like the 9/11-wasn't-airplanes folks or the vaccine deniers or climate change deniers or even holocaust deniers.  She and her bunch of mentally challenged bigots are convinced Muslims are taking over the country... but they're doing it secretly.  That's why there's no proof, see.  But since "[v]ery few people in America are informed and educated as [she is]" we just can't see the landslide of Sharia law and "extremist" Muslims in our government.  Hey, Victoria it's because of lack of existence, not because you're a secret genius.  I've come to realize that when wingnuts shout "extremist" the only extremists are the shouters.  Any and all environmentalists are "extremist" just as all Muslims are "extremist" but try to tell them (easily proven) that the biggest internal terrorist threat we face is from Christian extremists and you are a dangerous extremist of some sort.  Suggest that we conserve energy to combat the biggest threat to our national security, according to the Department of Defense and you're an extremist but actively act in direct opposition to conservation by driving an SUV, heating your house to 80°F in winter, or building a pipeline to carry crude from the dirtiest and most environmentally source of oil on the planet and you're a patriot.  Apparently for Victoria Jackson you need to be a religious (and racial) bigot as well as a complete pig to be a true patriot.  How you go from SNL to drooling web talk show moron is beyond me but congratulations, Victoria on your entrance into the Batshit Crazy Club!

War On Xmas Bullshit Continues

So I signed on to Facebook a few days back and found a "War on Christmas" statement the wingnuts are passing around.  As a non-Christian I was slightly offended even though I know this is a Fox News invented pile of shit and the girl that posted it is kind of stupid.  Still I decided to pull her strings.  I got "unfriended."  Just before that I copied the exchange (and missed expanding a couple of the posts to my chagrin).  Here it is with last names and Facebook links removed:

WHAT A CROCK OF CRAP..... We can't say Merry Christmas now we have to say Happy Holidays. We can't call it a Christmas tree, it's now called a Holiday tree? Because it might offend someone. If you don't ike our "Customs" and it offends you so much then GO HOME. I will help you pack. They are called customs and we have our traditions If you... agree with this...please post this as your status!! I AM A PROUD AMERICAN CITIZEN... MERRY CHRISTMAS Do you have what it takes to repost this? I sure do !!

Tiffany W_____ Yes it is and we have had a "Chritsmas Tree" and said "Merry Christmas" for years and years and now all of a sudden "people" seem to have a big problem about it. They need to get off their high horse and just let it be like it always was. It was never hurting anyone before, why now all of a sudden?! How would you and all aother Jewish people feel if "they" decided to change Hanukkah in someway?

Alan Miller You watch too much Fox News. There is no "War on Christmas." It's complete bullshit. What I hate about this "leave my country" hatred you're espousing is that it is utterly counter to anything Jesus taught. He taught love, tolerance, and forgiveness. Try reading this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Good_Samaritan

en.wikipedia.org
The parable of the Good Samaritan is a parable told by Jesus and is mentioned in only one of the Canonical gospels. According to the Gospel of Luke (10:25-37) a traveller (who may or may not be Jewish[1]) is beaten, robbed, and left half dead along the road. First a priest and then a Levite come by,...

Alan Miller Yes yes. This is a manufactured controversy played up by Fox News and its bunch of blathering idiots. Nobody gives a sh!# whether you say Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday. Which one you use shows whether or not you care about other people that believe differently from you. You obviously hate people that aren't "Christian." I'd say by hating them you yourself are not a Christian.

Alan Miller The whole "War on Christmas" is a load of crap. You can say whatever the hell you want and display whatever you want in your house and in your yard. If a bank decides that it doesn't wan to to offend their non-Christian customers that simply sounds smart to me but to you it's WAR. What nonsense.

Alan Miller You do know that Jews don't evangelize, right? If you've talked to a Jew about their religion it's been because you started the conversation. Muslims also don't evangelize so the same stands true. The only people that go door to door annoying the crap out of people are Christians of one sort or another like Baptist, Mormon, Jehova's Witnesses, and Church of Christ.

That's right, even a Koch funded study finds that the climate is changing as fast as scientists have been saying it is."A single winter storm does nothing to disprove that the planet is getting warmer, but that doesn't stop scientifically illiterate pundits from hi-fiving and telling nonsensical jokes about Al Gore every time it snows. ""Richard Muller, a physicist at University of California, Berkeley, announced the results of new research from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project affirming that the planet is getting warmer and confirming the accuracy of several other existing global temperature recorOh yeah, feel that sweet liberal bias... oh wait...

In case you weren't paying attention, Pat Buchanan is still a horrible piece of shit.

"Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis, a technocratic Massachusetts governor who takes his bearings from ‘data’ … Has conservatism come so far, surmounting so many obstacles, to settle, at a moment of economic crisis, for THIS?" - George Will"Not data?!!!Yes, data. Conservatives don’t like Romney in part because he lets facts and events influence his views."Who would want a President that pays attention to reality? Not Republicans, apparently.

No! There's not endemic racism in the GOP?!? That's can't be! That whole "Southern Strategy" thing is a liberal myth, right?


"NASA experienced two suspicious events with the Terra spacecraft in the summer and fall of 2008." - Of course with the new GOP (aka Teabaggers) we will soon have no functioning satellites of any kind and our life will be so much more exciting as we'll have no way to track hurricanes or other severe weather.

Incitement to Murder?



BOORTZ: You know what? I, for one, am tired of putting up with this crap. And you want to know why I moved out of Atlanta and only spend a couple of weeks a year in this town? That's one of the reasons. Carjackings, violence, people getting shot. It's ridiculous. This city harbors an urban culture of violence. And I want you to look around. You drive into the city. The railroad overpass is on the downtown connector covered with graffiti. And that-- That is just an advertisement for everybody coming into this town that we really don't give a damn about those who would screw up our quality of life around here. We really just don't care. We don't care enough to paint over graffiti on the overpasses that come into our city, advertising welcome to Atlanta, here's some of our finest graffiti, from some of our finest urban thugs and their little gang signs. And pick up the paper tomorrow morning. Read about all the carjackings. Read about the innocent people shot for the pure de-hell of it.


This town is starting to look like a garbage heap. And we got too damn many urban thugs, yo, ruining the quality of life for everybody. And I'll tell you what it's gonna take. You people, you are - you need to have a gun. You need to have training. You need to know how to use that gun. You need to get a permit to carry that gun. And you do in fact need to carry that gun and we need to see some dead thugs littering the landscape in Atlanta. We need to see the next guy that tries to carjack you shot dead right where he stands. We need more dead thugs in this city. And let their -- let their mommas -- let their mommas say, "He was a good boy. He just fell in with the good crowd." And then lock her ass up.
So what exactly does it take to convict someone of incitement to murder in this country?  If this doesn't qualify as a broadcaster telling his audience to kill people, what the fuck does?

And racist?  How dare you even think it?  He's a Republican, they get away with condoning murder and prejudice...

Sleeping Air Traffic Controllers and Union Busting

It is ironic that it was at Reagan National Airport that a non-union, swing shift air traffic controller fell asleep at the controls.  Ironic because if Reagan hadn't been a union busting asshole there probably would have been two people in that tower that night and they probably would have been working consistent shifts so they wouldn't be so sleepy as to not be awakened by the radio, ringing telephones, or warning noises from the control systems.  The GOP "fuck the workers" attitude pays off again with results that anyone but conservatives could see coming from a mile away.  "Do more with less," generally means "work like a slave, bitch and then take the blame when you fail" and our air transportation system is an example of how incredibly stupid this ideal is.  Since traffic is "slow" at night there is only one person directing traffic, apparently under such low staff conditions that there isn't anyone else at the airport that the FAA could call to check on the lone controller.  Meanwhile we're dumping billions of dollars into bullshit passenger and luggage screening systems and machinery manned by overworked assholes that hate what they're doing and miss actual danger about 90% of the time, making the entire process of flying an unpleasant invasion of privacy and paranoid over reaction.  But thanks to Reagan you can rest assured the people directing air traffic have no means of bargaining for better working hours or more pay.  The person making sure when your flight takes off there isn't another plane in its way or that when it lands it is aimed at the runway and not a tall building may have health problems that aren't covered by his insurance because he and others with the same job can't organize to bargain for better coverage or he or she might even be losing their home because of low pay and might think directing the plane you're on into a hillside would show "them." 

I cannot understand the logic behind running something as complicated as our air transport system on a shoe-string budget when a single failure can easily result in the deaths of hundreds of people.  Our pilots are quitting in droves as their workload far exceeds safety while their pay plummets to the level of school teachers from that of surgeons while wall street bankers that hold nothing but someone else's money in their control walk away from disaster after disaster extremely rich men.  And that's exactly how Reagan wanted it.  He wanted the rich to get richer and everyone else to work hard and die young, and the GOP is carrying on his tradition. 

Of course it's going to be that poor guy in the control tower that's going to get fucked the worst in all this.  How dare he be unable to stay awake after being jerked from daytime to nighttime duty, pulling 12 hour shifts day after day, and barely making a middle class living!  Doesn't he know he needs to pay for the tax cuts for billionaires our "President" just allowed through.  Fuck air traffic controllers.  They're not very important to those with private jets.

Fuck Second Amendment Rights, Give Me Back the Fourth Amendment!

This kind of thing happens all the time.  Cops burst into a house, guns drawn, fuck with everyone in the house, tear shit up, and then realize they've got the wrong place.  I want my country back:

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
