Straight Pride Absurdity


News broke this week of plans for a “Straight Pride Parade” to be held in Boston late summer 2019. Listen to John Hugo, one of the organizers spew validation of straight pride – https://news.yahoo.com/straight-pride-parade-organized-boston-010718302.html

While that sinks in, allow me to introduce a handful of other equally despicable straight pride players. Meet Mark Sahady,  far alt-right muckraker extraordinaire and “great” American behind “Super Happy Fun America”, and the juvenile moniker “make America fun again” of straight pride. Sadahy heads the Boston Chapter of Resist Marxism, a white supremacist organization founded by Kyle Chapman. Between criminal convictions and jail time for armed robbery, shoplifting and weapons offenses, Chapman managed to form Resist Marxism and the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights. With Chapman facing felony assault charges in two states, Sahady’s hate stock is rising. In a recent Facebook post Sahady wrote, “We may get to throw anti-American communists from helicopters sooner than we thought”. (In reference to the far-right helicopter meme calling for liberals to be thrown from helicopters as in Pinochet’s Chile)

When asked to define oppression of straight men, John Hugo answered – “we talk about our issues, we don’t want to see children having sex changes because their parents don’t like the gender of their child, and we’re immediately called villains in the mainstream media”. Villain? Try Knight of the Royal Order of Morons on for size.

Straight pride is pathetic testament to unchecked hatred in America. Another reason why America is anything but great.

Goop Dupe


If Karma is a bitch, she has one heck of a slap waiting for Gwyneth Paltrow. Next in line are the Fembots marching catatonically to her pop-up goop circus (June 7 – September 22, 2019 ) at the Hazelton Hotel in downtown Toronto. Who am I kidding, goopsters can’t march, they have jade eggs clenched in their vaginas to regulate menstrual cycles and harness the power of energy, stickers made of the same carbon NASA uses in spacesuits, plastered on their bodies to promote healing. (Never mind that NASA doesn’t use carbon in spacesuits, and that’s the least offensive contradiction ).

Health Canada inspectors wary of Paltrow’s goop dupe were no match for the queen of lifestyle sorcery. Despite their unannounced inspection, two sunscreen products not approved for sale in Canada were all they could deny drooling wellness devotees. Fear not goopbots, unapproved goop is available online and there’s nothing Health Canada can do to stop it.

Gwyneth is a quack who believes a bee sting heals scars. Her lifestyle brand is snake oil. Muster some self respect people! Goop is a dupe!

 

Noah’s Ark Not Covered By Flood Insurance


Owners of a roadside attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky are suing their insurance company for one million dollars. “Ark Encounter” accuses their insurance provider of acting in bad faith for refusal to cover full cost of damages caused by heavy rain in 2017 & 2018. Star attraction of the Biblical theme park, a 510 foot replica of Noah’s Ark miraculously escaped flood damage, due in part to placement on solid bedrock. At issue is a major landslide from a slope above which eroded structural stability along the access road. A road which carried a annual average of 2.2 million visitors since the park opened in 2016.

Ponder replica baby dinosaurs caged in the Ark. WTF?!!! http://kentuckytoday.com/stories/group-says-its-warning-schools-about-noahs-ark-attraction,4679

Ark’s insurance provider denied liability compensation on the basis of “design deficiencies and faulty workmanship”. Ark Encounter’s lawsuit accuses the insurer of breach of contract and acting with “oppression, fraud and malice”, a portion of the $1 million they’re after includes punitive damages.

Here’s the thing – Ark Encounter which opened in 2016, received substantial tax credits from the State of Kentucky. Activists like Jim Helton, spokesman for Tri-State Freethinkers cried foul, saying “Basically, this boat is a church raising scientifically illiterate children and lying to them about science”,  “It’s a clear violation of separation of church and state. What they’re doing is utterly ridiculous and anywhere else, I don’t think it would be allowed”, he added.

Ark Encounter spokesman Ken Ham, president of Answers In Genesis, the Christian organization behind the project said the attraction was designed to be “the greatest Christian outreaches of this era in history”.  The park website says – “Many of the animals that lived during Noah’s lifetime didn’t look much like the animals we see today”.  (Creation speak for hey kids you can still play with plastic dinosaurs because God made them 6,000 years ago, look there they are, caged just where Noah put them next to the goats. Don’t see a T-Rex? Read your Bible child and stop asking questions! Look, see the baby dinosaurs? God is wise, God is great. )

I digress. Promise to keep you posted.

Gunning For The Jibber-Jabber Grand Prize


Seems I twisted a few gun metal gray panties. Silly Canadian, what was I thinking? Who but an idealistic fool posts a question on Quora asking Americans if they’re bothered by the Virginia Beach massacre taking 148th place in number of 2019 U.S. mass shootings.

Reaction was swift and prolific, capsulated in overwhelming contempt. “Are you a stupid child?”, “Go crawl in a hole somewhere”, “It doesn’t impact my life, why are you making false claims?”, “Do you enjoy being a liar?”, “You’re a weak minded pussy”, “Cry to someone who cares” – those are the nice comments. No measure of “easy now” could placate collective wrath.

Take a deep breath, I said. This isn’t a personal attack, can we exchange perspectives without resorting to juvenile bullying? Apparently not. “You’re pathetic” they quipped. “A pathetic fool repeating lies by self interested political agendas”. Excuse me? You take issue with the definition of mass shooting? Only 3, not 148 in 2019, you say? Wikipedia says –

Wikipedia says –

“There are many definitions of a mass shooting:

Mass Shooting Tracker: 4+ shot in one incident, at one location, at roughly the same time.

[4]

Gun Violence Archive: 4+ shot in one incident, excluding the perpetrator(s), at one location, at roughly the same time.

[5]

Vox: 4+ shot in one incident, excluding the perpetrator(s), at one location, at roughly the same time.

[6]

[7]

USA Today: 4+ shot and killed in one incident, at one location, at roughly the same time (same as the FBI‘s “mass killing” definition).

[8]

Mother Jones: 3+ shot and killed in one incident, excluding the perpetrator(s), at a public place, excluding gang-related killings.

[9]

The Washington Post: 4+ shot and killed in one incident, excluding the perpetrator(s), at a public place, excluding gang-related killings.

[10]

Only incidents considered mass shootings by at least two of the above definitions are listed.”

Interested in reviewing their tally of events linked below?

No? I’m still a stupid child?

Not since posting support for abortion rights and being told I deserved to watch everyone I loved murdered before my eyes to teach me a lesson, have I encountered such absurd jibber-jabber. Fortunately this Canadian can turn and walk away.

You’re Watching Fox News, You Just Don’t Know It


Ponder this video….

“We tend to assume that if a story is being covered by major news networks, it’s because journalists have decided that the story is important. But thanks to Fox News, that’s not always true.

The network was specifically created to generate scandals that would hurt Democrats and help Republicans. And because most major networks pay attention to what happens in conservative media, those pseudoscandals end up creeping into mainstream coverage.

The result is a media ecosystem that advantages Republicans by paying disproportionate attention to right-wing talking points.

Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what’s really driving the events in the headlines.” Check out http://www.vox.com.

Wayne LaPierre Caught With Hand In NRA Cookie Jar


NRA chief Wayne LaPierre has some explaining to do.  Trouble began with a spat between the NRA and their long time Oklahoma City based ad agency Ackerman McQueen. Nothing short of acrimony describes NRA’s split with Ackerman McQueen, last month the NRA sued Ackerman for allegedly withholding documentation required for a financial audit of their relationship. Ackerman countered with request for documentation of $240,000 in travel expenses, $200,000 in luxury Beverly Hills Italian suits charged to Ackerman by LaPierre. Oh snap!

Notwithstanding this image of LaPierre which makes it difficult to imagine he spent a dime on custom suits, the New York Stare Attorney General’s Office launched an investigation of NRA finances. Attorney General Letitia James (of the same office which dissolved the Donald J Trump charitable foundation) has the power to dissolve the NRA if evidence proves violation of State charity law.

Justice might finally prevail. Meanwhile I ponder sweet, ironic justice of the NRA imploding, not for flagrant disregard of humanity, but for entitled hubris of their poster boy Lapierre. Sigh.

Perversion Files


According to court files, Boy Scouts of America began documenting allegations of sexual abuse in 1944. BSA created an “ineligible volunteer” file, commonly known as “perversion files”, in which 7,819 alleged sexual abusers had their registration with BSA revoked for reasonable suspicion of sexual misconduct.  Boy Scouts of America perversion files list 12,254 victims of alleged sexual abuse. Despite vehement BSA assurances “every instance of suspected abuse is reported to law enforcement”,  BSA never alerted the community and only released perversion files under court order.

Just as the Catholic Church scuttles pedophile clergy about when raised eyebrows threaten their indifference to rampant abuse, BSA feigns action to preserve their reputation.  What will it take to realize pedophiles gravitate to positions of power over children?

An expert hired by the Boy Scouts of America has said she identified 7,819 alleged abusers among its...
