November 2013


Palin hissing at her TrollsSarah’s book, Good Tidings Great sommin-sommin over on Amazon.com does not enjoy the protected security afforded her by Facebook volunteer minions who spend hour after hour reading comments and hitting delete delete as rapidly as possible so as to preserve her fake image. Instead, book reviews are offered and the public gets to decide which are valid and useful reviews.

So while I was there checking on her current book sales (really really low btw) I scrolled down to view the comments. Here are the first three. They are – imho – priceless and I’m guessing not exactly what Sarah had in mind. Oh well – suck it up Buttercup your book’s been out for about a week and already it’s gasping for air…

Is the Pope Catholic? Not according to Sister Sarah.
By Kevin on November 18, 2013
Format: Hardcover

It’s my favorite time of year again! It comes earlier every year and grows in strength every time. Is it Thanksgiving? No. Christmas? Closer.

It’s the War on Christmas, that festive time of year when we reflect on the true meaning of making sure other people know there is a war against Christmas.

What would you say is the greatest threat to the greatest of holidays Jesus gave to us? Is it over-commercialisation, which Charlie Brown was complaining about back in the ’60s? Or the fact that Christmas shopping next year will start just after St. Patrick’s Day? Or just the general un-Christmas like behavior of people fighting for parking spaces and hot new toys at the mall while ignoring their families at home?

If you answered any of the above three, you’re probably one of those godless liberals who need this book. No my friend, the answer of course is those atheists, bah-humbuging this joyous time for all of us and trying to take it back to the Roman Saturnalia, where men would give each other gifts, drink and fornicate with each other. Wouldn’t those sodomites forcing equal marriage on us love that?

Sarah Palin, truly the voice of our grandparent’s generation, bravely sets out to right this wrong. Christmas isn’t about sharing the holiday quietly with your family. It’s about shoving it down the throats of people who don’t believe (or don’t believe hard enough), and creating animosity and fear so we get rid of those people stopping us from spreading a holiday about peace and good will to all men.

This is a book necessary for this day and age, not just a cheap cash-in that can be rolled out every holiday until consistency=tradition. I will share this book with my loved years every year, and keep it prominently on my shelf right next to my copy of Ayn Rand’s It’s a Wonderful Life, where Mr. Potter is praised for his cleverness, and Clarence lets George kill himself for creating a culture of dependency.

Not Just for Remedial Readers.
By Clive Hazell on November 16, 2013
Format: Hardcover

I had a dream that instructed me to follow a star in the night sky to purchase this book. I don’t usually buy books because the nearest book shop is miles from my trailer park. Buying it on Amazon was super convenient, and I could do it from the office of my trailer park. The book was just as I had dreamed it would be. It was a clarion call for people like me, with more tattoos than teeth, to fight to protect Christmas. It’s not just a holiday for getting drunk and overspending at Walmart, it is a celebration of our little lord Jesus and his gift to humanity. Speaking of gifts…I didn’t even know Sarah Palin could write…but boy can she ever. Some of the sentences were really hard to read but mostly she is careful to avoid big words, and this makes it easier to read. I am sending this to all my family who won’t be able to join me for Christmas. Just because they have limited books at their prison library doesn’t mean my family (who are all Sarah Palin fans) shouldn’t have the chance to read her powerful words. I will say it was a bit tiring to read it because there are a lot of pages and my mouth got tired from sounding out all the words, but don’t give up. I also want to mention, that when libruls say Sister Sarah is a low information shrieky howler monkey with all the subtlety of a jackhammer on a hangover in August, they are lie-telling. Get this book for all the inmates in your family.

Palintology, the study of a fossilized brain in the head of a deluded opportunist, driven to deliver Christmas anger not joy.
By Sam Twain on November 18, 2013

Happy holidays to this dress wearing monster. Great joy is not found within these pages. Instead Christmas becomes a place of seething anger and bitterness.

 

In case you haven’t heard, Nov. 15th was BatKid day In San Francisco Ca. I can’t see (long story) so typing is hard today – but here are links and a video of this incredibly sweet gesture in all it’s glory…

From Huffington Post:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Batkid is fighting crime on the mean streets of San Francisco.

Television news footage showed 5-year-old Miles Scott, aka Batkid, leaving the city’s Union Square in one of two Batmobiles on Friday morning. The vehicles — two black Lamborghinis with Batman decals — were surrounded by media and onlookers.

The drive through city streets is part of a day of events organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill Miles’ wish to be Batkid. Miles was diagnosed with leukemia and is in remission.

The Lamborghinis were escorted by police, who also blocked off roads. Batkid’s first caper was rescuing a damsel in distress from cable car tracks. He was also scheduled to capture the Riddler as he robs a downtown bank and receive a key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee.

There was also live-streaming of the entire event and the SF Chronicle published a special Gotham City edition of the paper. Well here go the tears and now I really can[t see…

UPDATE 2:
From MSNBC Rachel Maddow Reports on the day-

Even Pres. Obama Vimeo’d his congratulations to Miles… How good is that!

Following an unprecedented three-year wave of state legislative attacks on abortion and family planning services, a group of Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate plan to go on the offensive Wednesday with a historic bill that would make it illegal for states to chip away at women’s reproductive rights.

I’ve a very dear friend who treats Halloween as her sacred time of year. October 1st sees a life-sized witch standing on her front porch stirring a wrought-iron cauldron teeming with dry ice. Bats hang from grizzly-looking spiderwebs and Jack-o-lanterns line the path to the front door. Throughout her house orange and black bric-a-brac fill every nook and cranny as friends and family have delighted in adding to her collection of Halloween goodies every year, November 1st is her saddest day of the year and she’s been known to put off boxing up all of her Halloween paraphernalia until it’s time to bring home the Thanksgiving Turkey.

So to share in her task of keeping Halloween alive just a bit longer, I thought I would share my favourite ‘social media’ bits of this last Halloween.

Missed Halloween!! But as I was finishing up the last of my work for the week I happened across this article in Think Progress:

george-zimmerman-289x400George Zimmerman
Maybe something good came out of this after all.

The town where Trayvon Martin was killed back in February of 2012 has created new rules for neighborhood watch participants. Sanford, Florida’s neighborhood watch volunteers will no longer be allowed to carry guns, and or to actively pursue someone they think is suspicious.

Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, was a volunteer on neighborhood watch in his gated community in Sanford.

Around the time of the shooting, other neighborhood watch members trashed Zimmerman for his actions on that fateful night. “In no program that I have ever heard of does someone patrol with a gun in their pocket,” the Executive Director of Citizens’ Crime Watch of Miami-Dade told theGrio. A neighborhood watchman added in a Wall Street Journal editorial, “George Zimmerman gives neighborhood watch volunteers a bad name.” Even one of Zimmerman’s fellow neighborhood watchmen said that Zimmerman shouldn’t have had a gun.

Happy Halloween everyone!!
