Sarah Palin: Ahmadinejad in Heels

President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Sarah Palin.  One’s a naive, oil-obsessed, holy war-calling, religious extremist, and the other is an Iranian.  Here’s the Lovesick Billy take on this dynamic duo:

Ahmadinejad: Thinks the Holocaust is a myth.

Palin: Thinks evolution is a myth.

Ahmadinejad & Palin: Were not widely known when they entered their presidential election campaigns, although they had already made their marks for rolling back earlier reforms. Continue reading ‘Sarah Palin: Ahmadinejad in Heels’

Universal Truths I Learned from Weeding the Garden

By L.A. standards, we have a lot of land: just over 1/4 of an acre. Anywhere else, it’s a postage stamp.

Last winter, we didn’t get as much rain as we did this year, and so this year’s weed growth is unprecedented. I knew it wouldn’t be a small task, so admittedly I’ve been putting it off, and while I was out there pulling, I learned a few universal truths (yet again).

Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

I’m glad to see that the Huffington Post has loosened its collar a little bit, covering stuff other than politics. They push the limits a bit with some of the entertainment/gossip fluff, but their pop sociology beat is pretty impressive.

I don’t know if everyone is taking their cues from Lovesick Billy (kidding, of course), but suddenly there’s lots of chatter about monogamy, with the for and against voices coming out in strength.

Check out this Google search.

Scarlett Johannsen’s comments are idiotic, but hey, people are talking about where they get their itch scratched with a transparency that is unprecedented. Perhaps the Bush administration hasn’t banished all of America back to a Puritanical age after all.

I’ll be honest, I’ve tried it all kinds of ways, and without any judgments, I’ll conclude that for us, this morning’s Notes from the Universe says it better than I can:

If you ask me, Bronson, I’d say the main thing to keeping the main thing the main thing, is reminding yourself as often as you can of where the most joy will come from.

Jane Fonda Said “Cunt”

You remember George Carlins 7 words you can’t say on TV. People are asked to apologize, companies fined, for even the most incidental, benign use of them. But faggot, kike, dyke, freak, nigger, towelhead, bitch, loser, fat ass, pig, dork, retard, stupid, dickhead, and dozens of other hateful things (click below)

that people call each other are not considered profanity, and are regularly tolerated in public, the radio, television – even from the mouths of children, where they are dismissed as mere immaturity – when in fact, such taunts and even silent harmful intent have ultimately proven to result in homicide, and suicide. Remember Columbine? Continue reading ‘Jane Fonda Said “Cunt”’
