Retired porn star Jenna Jameson supports Mitt Romney – ABC News.

Watch your back, Obama!

It appears as if the porn industry may be backing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney rather than Barack.

Retired adult film star Jenna Jameson, speaking from a strip club no less, endorsed the big business candidate and said, “When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.”

Thanks for clearing that up for us, Jenna. After all, we want to protect the rich at all costs.

Even more disconcerting is the fact that one of my personal heroes, hedgehog-looking and unfairly endowed adult film star Ron Jeremy, also seems to be backing Romney. Jeremy recently referred to Romney as “a good man” and “an amazing father.”

Does it matter that Romney and many of his supporters likely consider the porn industry to be immoral and even sinful?

I guess not since, as Jameson so eloquently stated, it’s all about the money.

What is this country coming to?

 

Waking up in the land of Oz and other craziness

Last week I had one of those days; the kind where you feel all achy and disconnected from your energy supply; so you surrender to the urge to lie on the couch on watch television.  I am one of what is probably a handful of people, in the U.S., without cable or satellite TV.  Because I live up against the mountains, over the air television and radio signals tend to behave erratically.  A radio or TV station I get today might not be there tomorrow and my living room is able to receive stations that my bedroom cannot.  The house is small, so they’re not that far apart, I don’t get it.  I’m not a huge fan of either medium so it’s not a big deal.

I flipped through the channels until I found something mildly interesting and immediately fell asleep.  I awoke to a program being hosted by Dr. Oz.  I didn’t see the remote or care enough to look for it so I watched what seemed to be a children’s program, but for adults.  In the beginning Dr. Oz hyped all kinds of vital health information that he said I needed immediately and that he was going to share that day.  Some of it never came up and what did was only lightly covered (or just plain wrong) so as to be completely useless.

At the beginning of the show, Dr. Oz was clad in dress slacks and a nice shirt; midway through the show, for no apparent reason, he changed into scrubs.  His audience seemed to consist of mostly overweight women, several of whom were chosen during the show to take part in whatever he happened to be teaching us at the time.  Being chosen must be an honor because each woman, upon hearing of her good fortune, would jump up and down clap her hands, and hug the people on either side of her before running to the stage, nearly unable to contain her excitement.  Some of the helpers had the added privilege of having Dr. Oz help them into a lab coat to wear while they were on stage, which made them all the more excited.

Once on stage the women were treated condescendingly, but didn’t seem to notice or care.  They would stand by his side as he did some sort of demonstration accompanied by his narration (that sounded as though he were speaking to a group of five year olds) using a visual aid, even occasionally holding and guiding their hands much like you would guide a child’s hand.  I found it disturbing that so many people are watching this guy, taking his advice seriously, and are willing to be patronized on national TV.  It was ironic that I found myself watching a doctor on television as a result of feeling unwell, and what I saw made me feel sick.  Perhaps one day his show topic will be the national epidemic of stupidity.

I learned that Dr. Oz is a practicing cardiac surgeon.  I wonder how he has time to do a daily television show and maintain a surgical practice.  If I needed heart surgery I would want someone more focused on practicing medicine than being a celebrity.

Moving on to radio.  Sometimes when I am getting dressed in the morning I turn on the radio hoping for NPR, but about half the time (because of that strange signal problem I mentioned) get a morning zoo program instead.  The format is mostly talk with the same three or four songs of the moment thrown in here and there.  The DJs are careful to use euphemisms for sexual intercourse and genitalia, I assume because they have young listeners…though I have heard the grown-up versions of these words on other radio shows so I know they are FCC approved.  The other day they played a song and the word sh*t was bleeped, yet they play songs with lyrics that would make me cringe if I’d had an adolescent listening to them.  I’m not a prude, trust me, but I think these lyrics might send the wrong message to young kids.

From S&M by Rihanna:

Feels so good being bad

There’s no way I’m turning back
Now the pain is my pleasure
Cause nothing could measure

Love is great, love is fine
Out the box, out of line
The affliction of the feeling
Leaves me wanting more

[Chorus x2:]
Cause I may be bad
But I’m perfectly good at it
Sex in the air
I don’t care
I love the smell of
Sticks and stones
May break my bones
But chains and whips
Excite me

Na na na na
Come on
Come on
Come on
I like it
Like it…

Ironic, isn’t it, that not all that long ago Rihanna made news when her boyfriend allegedly beat her.  Did she like it like it?  I’m being tastelessly flip, of course.  Violence is NEVER OK.

From Last Friday Night, by Katy Perry

There’s a stranger in my bed,

There’s a pounding my head
Glitter all over the room
Pink flamingos in the pool
I smell like a minibar
DJ’s passed out in the yard
Barbie’s on the barbeque

There’s a hickie or a bruise
Pictures of last night
Eended up online
I’m screwed
Oh well
It’s a black top blur
But I’m pretty sure it ruled

Last Friday night
Yeah we danced on tabletops
And we took too many shots
Think we kissed but I forgot

Last Friday night
Yeah we maxed our credit cards
And got kicked out of the bar
So we hit the boulevard

Last Friday night
We went streaking in the park
Skinny dipping in the dark
Then had a menage a trois
Last Friday night
Yeah I think we broke the law
Always say we’re gonna stop-op
Whoa-oh-oah

This Friday night
Do it all again
This Friday night
Do it all again

Trying to connect the dots
Don’t know what to tell my boss
Think the city towed my car
Chandelier is on the floor
With my favorite party dress
Warrants out for my arrest
Think I need a ginger ale
That was such an epic fail

Pictures of last night
Ended up online
I’m screwed
Oh well
It’s a blacked out blur
But I’m pretty sure it ruled

Damn…

Which would you rather have your kid/s hear, proper names for biological functions and body parts, maybe a swear word here and there, or these lyrics???

After having seen more Facebook pages than I care to, I think some users believe (possibly because of the site’s name) that the primary purpose of having an account is to post as many pictures of your face, from as many angles and with as many expressions as possible.  A better name might be Narcissisticbook.  And who has over seven hundred friends?  Though I actually stumbled on a site the other day that allows you to buy Facebook friends.  To anyone out there desiring to increase their friend count and willing to pay for friends, I just want to let you know that my friendship can be bought.  Don’t go through a website, cut out the middle man and buy me directly.  My price is negotiable, and I’ll consider all offers.

Christian fundamentalists are different from radical Muslims how?

Christians love to claim we are a nation founded in christianity (if you know me, then you know the c word gets capitalized only at the beginning of sentences).  I guess if I really think about it I can’t argue with that premise.  We did capture and enslave people, treated them like property, abused them, sold their children, and got rich off their backs for hundreds of years; it doesn’t get more christian-like than that.  Our christianity includes burning women accused of witchcraft, bombing abortion clinics, beating and killing people for being gay…and the list goes on.

For years christianity has been shoved down the throats of everyone who is not christian.  A few examples: prayer in schools, the addition of god to the pledge of allegiance, opening government functions with prayer, hearing our political leaders making religious references.  I’ll be so happy if the christians ever get the date right, and the rapture, or as I like to call it, lift-off, actually occurs.  I get first dibs on all their stuff…just letting you know.  Let us pray that it happens sooner rather than later.

So now this kid in Louisiana, who happens to be an atheist, has received death threats, from the good christian people, because of his opposition to the inclusion of prayer in his high school graduation ceremony.  His own parents threw him out of the house; how christian is that?

From the freethinker:

NORTH LOUISIANA has been described as “the buckle on the Bible Belt” – and not without good reason, as high school student Damon Fowler at Bastrop High School has discovered to his cost.

Damon Fowler: demonised, ostracized and threatened with death

On the eve of his graduation, the atheist student contacted the school superintendent to let him know that he opposed the inclusion of a prayer at the graduation ceremony. He pointed out that government-sponsored prayer in the public schools was unconstitutional and legally forbidden – and that he would be contacting the ACLU if it went ahead. The school agreed to substitute it with a moment of silent reflection, which was subsequently scuppered by a Christian student.

Then Fowler’s name, and his role in this incident, was leaked. As a direct result:

1) Fowler has been hounded, pilloried, and ostracized by his community.

2) One of Fowler’s teachers has publicly demeaned him.

3) Fowler has been physically threatened. Students have threatened to “jump him” at graduation practice, and he has received multiple threats of bodily harm, and even death threats.

4) Fowler’s parents cut off his financial support, kicked him out of the house, and threw his belongings onto the front porch.     read more

Don’t the christians have a saying about he who is without sin should not cast stones, or something like that?  Rather ironic isn’t it?

Talking the talk

I think grammar died the day Bush took office.  I’m not referring to perfect grammar; who among us doesn’t make mistakes?  I’m talking about blatant, in-your-face, make you grimace misuse of the easy stuff.

Examples include:

  • Asking a store clerk the location of a product and being told, “We don’t got any of that.”
  • “I don’t want no…”
  • “I don’t got no…”
  • “I seen her do…”
  • Inserting:  like, you know, know what I’m sayin, fuckin’ every few words
  • misuse or mispronunciation of words
  • mumbling so as to be unintelligible
  • and the list goes on…

Because I am a freelancer (self employed, independent contractor) I am looked at by the sharks as a business owner and often receive phone calls soliciting business services I neither want or need.  If you are a person that makes their living doing this sort of solicitation you talk for a living; you should have good communication skills.  They rarely do.

The other day I answered a call from a woman (sounded more like a teenager) who said she was calling about changes to my merchant account.  I said I didn’t have a merchant account to which she replied, “I know.” which prompted me to ask why then is she calling about changes to an account I don’t have.  Her stumbling response was, ” Well we just like wanted to tell you about a new um happening that’s like making it easier to get a merchant account.  We have this new, you know, happening”  Annoyed at the interruption I sarcastically replied that, “If I wanted to like get a, you know, merchant account, I could um like ya know, make it happen by myself or whatever.”  I figured she would disconnect but she did surprise me by giggling, so we both had a good laugh (at her expense).

Like real estate is now a buyers’ market, with so many highly skilled people out of work, it would seem like an employers’ market.  Why, then is it the morons who are getting the jobs that require communication with the public?  It’s bad enough when the customer service people are in another country and you can barely understand them, but when they are native speakers of your language and you can barely understand them something is very wrong.  Could it be that the pay is so low this is the best you can get?  Or have Americans been so dummed down in the past decade the average consumer would have trouble understanding an articulate speaker?

Now for some irony, or just something really weird.

Remember way back at the beginning of this post I stated my belief that the deterioration of the English language began with Bush?  Here is something really ironic and a bit scary.  About a week or so ago I was sick, for a few days, with a virus of the sort that makes you want to do nothing but lie down.  I never watch television during the day, but one of the symptoms of this virus was the desire to watch whatever happened to be on television while lying on the sofa, remote in hand.  Boy that Judge Judy is mean.  I don’t have cable so please understand my choices are limited to whatever signal/s the surrounding mountains will allow.

So there I am watching whatever program came on next, lacking strength or motivation to expend my little energy pressing a button until Oprah came on.  I dislike her enough that my finger found the strength and was about to change the channel when she announced her guest would be none other than former President, George W. Bush.  This should have increased my motivation to press that remote button as quickly as possible, but I have to admit I was curious.  In my defense I was probably delirious from the fever.  I figured I would watch for a few minutes but what I saw so amazed me I watched the entire show.

Bush, was of course, on a book tour, hawking his memoir.  But what so amazed me and kept me glued to the show was that Bush, or someone who looked and sounded just like him, was speaking in full sentences, using words (even adverbs) correctly, and pronouncing words (except for nuclear) correctly.  In response to Oprah’s questions, which were likely provided by Bush’s people, he gave explanations for his actions that made him seem like a good guy.  Sick as I was, I still thought he was a lying sack of crap.  He was speaking at at least an eight or ninth grade level.  He was able to respond to questions without that dazed and confused look we all came to know.  He even acknowledged that many people are surprised he wrote a book and that most of them didn’t even think he could read (I still don’t).  How is this possible?  Was it my fever ridden brain playing tricks on me?  Did the book publicist find a ringer to do interviews?  Maybe it was a robotic Bush.  That’s got to be it, a stand in or a robot, probably a robot.

The root of all evil and other random stuff

I don’t think it’s money, but christianity (yes, I am aware that it is supposed to be capitalized but I cannot bring myself to do it) that is the root of all evil.  Did the christians or did they not invent Satan?  Enough said.

I just read an old Stephen King story about a werewolf and it got me to thinking:  I wonder if there is a wolf somewhere that turns into a christian every full moon and bites other members of the wolf pack.  Those bitten become were-christians.  That would explain why the wolf has become an endangered species.

Why do I hear the name Charlie Sheen every time I turn on the radio or TV?  He must be very important.  I haven’t followed his story but since it is unavoidable here is what I know:  The guy is a narcissistic, womanizing, drunken asshole who plays the part of a narcissistic, womanizing, drunken asshole on a major network television show called Two and a Half Men.  From what I gather the network has canceled the show because Sheen is a narcissistic, womanizing, drunken asshole.  Now that’s irony.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Microsoft Windows includes games, like solitaire, so that you will have something to do while you are waiting for the f&#ing computer to finish whatever it is that is hanging it up.

By the year 2013 blogging and speaking will have become obsolete; people will communicate solely by tweeting and texting, and procreation will take place through sexting.  Cyber-bullying will be an Olympic event.

This is my rifle – this is my gun…

…one is for fighting, one is for fun.  This military saying has taken on new meaning in Alabama where a sex shop ran a special Valentine’s Day promotion, offering to trade guns for sex toys.  This is ironic since sex toys are illegal in Alabama, while guns are part of the culture.

I can’t fathom the thinking behind declaring sex toys illegal.  I guess it’s possible the incidence of convenience store robberies committed by dildo wielding thugs was on the rise.  Cash registers emptied, clerks left dildo whipped…somebody had to step up and do something.

The goal is 300 guns off the streets, at least for a little while. Williams said the offer is “my contribution to making love, not war here in Alabama, where guns are legal and adult toys are not.” Williams has fought Alabama laws against sex toys with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union. She now has stores in Decatur and an old bank building on University Drive where employees offer drive-through service, including free condoms.  The rest of the story

Do you see the irony here?

This display was on the front outside wall of a Home Depot.  Click the image for the full size pic so you can look more closely at the display and read the sign on lower left.  I thought the display and the promotional sign were either a new trend in ‘curb appeal’ or a contradiction caused by the ineptitude of  the staff members in charge of display.
