When Mark Steyn is Right…

September 15th, 2012

he’s dead right.

His piece today on the Libyan embassy overrun, an act of war, not a movie protest, is brutally on the mark.

Lets make no mistake, this was an overt act of war: An embassy was overrun, it’s flag taken down and replaced, it’s ambassador kidnapped, killed and his body sodomized. Meanwhile, the president is oblivious to what’s really happening, so stuck in his own little world of delusion. On the other side of the aisle, Sen. John McCain has gone form giving his own concession speech to giving Mitt Romney’s, even though it is unasked for and unneeded.


Since the President is spending his crisis time raising money in the arts community, maybe some film maker could explain why it’s not OK to have a General call a movie maker, or the White House complaining to YouTube about a movie. If  they are having problem with the problem, they could imagine it’s a year in the future and Hollywood has produced the first Presidential assassination movie of the Romney presidency. It’d be cool if the some Admiral docks his Battleship at Sean Penn’s beach house for a chat, right?

The president, his former opponent and the criminally dishonest media need to step aside and let some adults look after this little problem. Clearly, the people charged with doing so are unable.

Blog Tax

August 25th, 2010

The Pimply Minion’s Rebellion of 2010 continues apace.

It really seems this summer that governments in North America have started a war on the citizenry.

And it’s not big government, Stephen Harper and Barak Obama coming down from on high. It’s not even Premier Dad, Premier Uncle Jean and Premier Auntie Eva: Political middle managers bullying the staff. No, this is the locals, the councils and the by-law officers declaring what you can and cannot do full stop.

Want a lemonade? it must have the pimply minion seal of approval; want to get together with 75 friends and associates to discuss freedom on private property? not without a permit; want to write a blog? not without a license:

…Marilyn Bess has operated MS Philly Organic, a small, low-traffic blog…

In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.

“… for the city to tell me to pony up $300 for a business privilege license, pay a wage tax, business privilege tax, net profits tax on a handful of money is outrageous,” Bess says.

Of course, now Bess gets to write everything off, her computer, the room in her house where she blogs from, her server space &tc.

Except, I agree with William L. Anderson at The Freeman:

…I suspect there’s a more important reason for this new government outrage: intimidation of anyone who would use a blog to criticize government officials.

In other words, it’s not about the money, it’s about the rebellion.

Saturday Fluffernutter: The Penis Edition: Big Ones, Loud Ones; Thumping Around Ones

April 10th, 2010

All the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities

fluffincolorSinger Ricky Martin, long rumoured to be gay, last week announced he was… gay.brighams-fluffernutter-761079

In a statement on his website, Martin said week:

I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.

No real surprise, I can’t listen to Livin’ La Vida Loca without feeling gay, never mind singing it every night.

fluffincolorSixteen year old singing sensation/tweener heartthrob Justin Beiber commented to People magazine this week about President Barack Obama mis-pronouncing his name at Beiber’s first visit to the White House last year:

He messed up my name, but I give it to him. He’s not (the) age category I sing to. He’s not “one less lonely girl”.

I would have preferred if he had said, “Dude. You can pronounce Netanyahu, but you can’t get Bee-ber? Put it on the teleprompter and get it right next time.” However, the “it’s more than I expect from some old, square guy,” routine that he went with was good too.

fluffincolorLife and Style magazine has gone undercover to find out, which Hollywood big shots have big shooters. The big men about town, in no particular order, we hope, are: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Foxx, David Arquette, David Spade, Jamie Kennedy, Brian Austen Green, Jaret Leto and Andy Dick.

Noticeably absent from the list is any of those Hollywood loudmouth types (DiCaprio excepted) like Sean Penn or Matt Damon, proving once again, guys with big dicks don’t have to go around acting like they have big dicks.

fluffincolorFrom the Department of Segues shania-twain-2-240I never thought I’d use: speaking of Penises (penisi?), Mutt Lange’s ex-wife (a very quiet guy if your ever looking for one) Shania Twain is back in the public eye, causing millions of penisi world-wide top thump around in excitement, “I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it,” Twain told People, causing thousands of those penises to explode.

fluffincolorMalcolm McLaren (1946-2010) – In 1976 Malcolm McLaren took a band he was managing and replaced first the bass player, then added a singer. The singer, who would audition for McLaren miming to an Alice Cooper song wearing an I hate Pink Floyd short (the words written on after the fact), changed his name to Johnny Rotten, the band to the Sex Pistols. They would stay together two years, scandalising Britain with their celebration of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee with their version of God Save the Queen (She ain’t a human bein’).

The Sex Pistols broke up on their first American tour, and McLaren would go on to break up Adam and the Ants, and regroup them as Bow Wow Wow and Adam Ant. He also had a lengthy music career of his own, begining with 1983’s Duck Walk.

McLaren died this week, aged 64, after a battle with the rare form of cancer, malignant mesothelioma.

Stephen Harper’s Gordon Brown is a Big Mean Bully…

February 23rd, 2010

I never got the criticism: Stephen Harper is a bully. What does that even mean? He steals Stephane Dion’s milk money?  

Stephen Harper is a high achieving individual and as such, is in all probability somewhat difficult: demanding, intense and impatient of fools no doubt. But there is nothing unusual in that. They are all common traits in those who are achievers, they expect much from themselves and no less from the people around them. Furthermore, Harper is a politician. You attack your opponents before they attack you.

Plotting to steal Barack Obama's milk money.

Plotting to steal Barack Obama's milk money.

 That’s how it is played, that’s how it has always been played. From Machiavelli to Chrétien politicians are aggressive with those who want to take their power from them.

Working for high achievers, especially in the political domain, can’t be a picnic but as working for the Prime Minister’s office is itself a high achievement, one would imagine an office filled with aggressive career people who can take crap when it falls on them. If you can’t take the heat, presumably you would get out of the kitchen. And do we really want people in high power, high pressure positions who can’t take it?

People in those high powered positions, however, seem completely unable to take it, at least in present day Britain. It was revealed this week that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is a big mean bully who treats his staff shabbily. While Downing Street denies this, the National Bullying Helpline has come forward to say they get calls from the Prime Ministers staff. The astounding thing is, this is being treated as “Gordon Brown: bad guy.” They set up a hot-line so 12 year old boys can call and complain “Scott Farcus makes me say uncle,” and the Prime Minister’s staff, the people tasked with running the once great Britain, call and complain about their boss.

I’m trying to imagine Winston Churchill on a bad day. The Luftwaffe bombed the hell out of his city last night, hundreds dead, docks in flames and he’s not happy. “Goddamned Hitler,” he yells. “That Son of a Bitch Goering.” He takes off his bowler hat and throws it at a hat rack, missing the rack but nearly hitting the secretary in charge of purchasing anti-aircraft ammunition.

“He’s a big bully,” she whispers to the secretary responsible for securing bricks to rebuild the hundreds of houses that disappeared the previous night. “I’m going to call the Draco Malfoy hot-line.”

Comments Off on Come in Tokyo… Come in Tokyo

A picture is worth a thousand words:


Doesn’t the President look like he’s telling the Prime MInister a dirty-ish joke here?

And in case you think I’m being partisan and unfair, Prime Minister Harper looks like he doesn’t get the joke.
