And the Nation Rapidly Becomes Stupider...

...and there seems to be no end in sight.

Case in point:
Retarded Southern female wants to ban Harry Potter books in a Georgia elementary school district.

Worse still, the in-bred hick bitch hasn't even read the fucking books.

What could be worse than that? The dumb bitch defends her ignorance! For example:

"I think it would be hypocritical for me to read all the books, honestly. I don't agree with what's in them. I don't have to read an entire pornographic magazine to know it's obscene," Mallory said.
Yeah, and I don't have to talk to you to know that you're a load your mother should have swallowed. Too bad she didn't.

Apparently the stupid bitch thinks that kids'll get into the occult by reading these books. Okay, first off kids are not getting into Satanism because of dear old Harry and second kids cannot cast any "spells" from the books! We've been through this bullshit before. But it never seems to end: there are people who believe this vapid bitch.

“I’m a true example of how Harry Potter books can open your life to witchcraft,” said Jordan Susch.

No, you are not. You are a kid who is screwed-up in the head. You need mental help. Therapy could probably help you. But you won't get any. You're just going to sit on your ass and blame a piece of fiction for all your life's problems instead of getting up off said ass and taking responsibility for yourself.

“We wanted to know if spells, potions and curses worked. By the seventh grade, I was so depressed, I set a date to kill myself,” Susch said.

Let's have some fun with that, shall we? Sub in 'math text book" instead of "Harry Potter" and you'd get this:
"We wanted to know if algorithms, theorems and equations worked. By the seventh grade, I was so depressed, I set a date to kill myself," Susch said.

Sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn't it?

But wait, there's more!

Let's try using a science text. We'd get something like this:
"We wanted to know if neutrinos, quarks and isotopes worked. By the seventh grade, I was so depressed, I set a date to kill myself," Susch said.

I could go on, but you get the idea.

But the situation isn't totally hopeless, there are a few intelligent people out there, thank Primus.

We also give kids a little credit in knowing the difference between fact and fiction. We find it interesting that while she's wild about Harry, she suggests replacing the Potter books with the "Left Behind" series. Her appeal form doesn't indicate whether she's read those publications. But for those not familiar with the Tim LaHaye books, imagine this, taken from the "Left Behind" Web site: "Passengers aboard a Boeing 747 en route to Europe disappear. Instantly. Nothing remains except their rumpled piles of clothes. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror-stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. For those left behind, the apocalypse has just begun." Frightening stuff. Give us a good-ole Bat Boggey Curse any day.

Breaking the Girl

(My apologies to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.)

Yes, it's been a while since I've posted. It's not for lack of interest, I just haven't had the time or the energy. I'm still dealing with the move (good Gods, we have a bunch of crap!) and my work schedule has made it extremely difficult for me to try and update.

Put it this way: I spend about 10 hours at work a day (at least an hour of which before I'm even scheduled to start), only to go home and start all over again. I literally have no time to relax or unwind. Worse still, my days off are split; I don't have two days off in a row. Needless to say, I am so bone tired that I do not have the fortitude to even roll out of bed in the morning. And I have no idea how much longer this will be going on. My blog is suffering, I'm suffering; to put it nicely, life fucking sucks for me right now.

But, enough whining from me. Here's my chuckle for the week (file it under "P" for pwned!): Ann Coulter is officially an "it" by her own non-admission. Normally, I wouldn't even care about something like this.... but this is Ann Coulter. The "woman" with an Adam's Apple. I don't know about you, but this is just too damned funny. Once you get over the initial shock and stop vomiting, it's hilarious.

Random Thoughts Ver 1

I'll make this brief, mostly because I have to: yes, I am still alive and kicking. I have been extremely busy thanks to the move. Prime and I are still going through boxes, setting things up, what have you. It's been tedious and very time-consuming. Factor in the difficulties at work, like the consistently shitty scheduling I've been getting (which has put a huge cramp in my efforts get transferred out of that hellhole) and I barely have time to do much of anything. But enough bitching. For your reading pleasure, I present a few

Random Thoughts
*Cats hate moving. Cats also hate rides in the car. My cat, Sammy, made both of these points very clear on his trip to the new house. It took a few hours to regain my hearing after we got him here.
*Head honcho S is a bigger bitch than I had imagined. She proceeded to yell at one of my fellow cashiers for not bagging for a customer. This cashier was on self-check; we are not allowed to touch a customer's order unless they ask us. Way to go, S, you shrewish bitch.
*The hellhole has a sudden lack of cashiers nowadays. The reason? The newbies got pissed and quit.
*File this under "Open Mouth, Insert Hoof": we had a lost kid at the front lanes about a week ago. He looked to be about three or four years old and was about five seconds away from screaming his head off, until he spotted the candy rack. He grabbed a lollipop and started eating it. Normally, this would irritate me, but it helped to keep the kid from panicking until one of his older brothers found him. The Sow saw what was going on. Her only response? "He didn't pay for that piece of candy." (In the kid's defense, his parents paid for it later.) One of the cashiers who overheard the Sow's snarky little comment said she wanted to "slap the hell" out of old Piggy.
*The Piglets have dwindled in numbers. Because of the Sow's wonderful "personality", a lot of her defenders want nothing to do with her. I can hardly blame them.
*Prime and I have now have broadband. What in Primus' name did we do without it?
*According to rumors, Weird Al is working on a new album. I can hardly wait. :)
*Dairycon, our little Wisconsin Transformers get together, is next Saturday. Hope it'll tide me over until BotCon.
*On April 22nd, Cartoon Network will remove Transformers:Cybertron from its Toonami line-up. Just another reason to shit-can CN.
*Pokemon Journey Across America will hit near my area twice: May 20th in St. Paul, Minnesota and Chicago, Illinois the 27th. I hope to make it there.
*According to Headline News, the Dragon Skin body armor that soldiers have been buying to protect themselves is "inferior". The stuff the government is handing out is the "better quality" armor. So much for the liberal media.
Well, that's all the time I have today. If I'm lucky, I'll post again in another week or so.
