I know I’ve been away from here for a few days. Rob and I always seem to be busy, doing something, planning something, running somewhere… and when we’re not, I’m too tired to write, and generally can be found in bed napping. A lot.
I’ve been thinking lately that I need to find another blogger for this site. Someone who knows how to throw around invective – appropriately. Someone whose grammar and spelling I don’t have to double check (because if you can’t tell the difference between “they’re,” “their,” and “there,” you don’t need to be spouting your views anygoddamnwhere until you learn how to write, sparky!) Someone who knows how to fact check, and when they’re wrong, can post an appropriate, invective-filled apology for being a dipshit. Someone who is fun, and who loves to write. Someone who holds similar views to mine.
Now, it doesn’t have to be all politics, all the time. As a matter of fact, it can be pretty much any commentary on any issue, written with panache.
So basically, I need another me. (OK, so my ego got off its chain again a bit, but you know what I mean)
Meanwhile, here’s what’s been going on in the world while I’ve been busy.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided that he hasn’t wreaked enough havoc in Ukraine, so he’s sending Russian tanks to Ukrainian separatists along with some MLRs. Now, these are T-64s that the Russian military forces no longer use, but given the fact that the Ukrainian separatists are basically some inbred hillbillies who light their farts on fire when they’re not destabilizing their region in hopes of getting closer to the Russians, who they believe will be giving them free shit, T-64s are a pretty good deal.
Meanwhile jihadist assholes have pretty much reversed a decade of progress in Iraq, and are currently using decapitated heads as soccer balls to celebrate the World Cup. We can haz drones?
Closer to home, Michael Bloomberg and his panty-shitting Mommies Demanding
Action Attention, along with the astroturfy Everytown have put out a map, claiming that 74 school massacres have occurred here in the United States since Sandy Hook. The only problem is that this latest attempt to force the government to infringe on your rights is a big, fat lie. Even PolitiFact has kicked these shitbags in their shriveled raisins! Journalist Charles Johnson deserves all the kudos in the world for exposing these lies!
The traitor Bowe Bergdahl has returned home. There were no parades and no grandiose welcome home parties for this deserting piece of shit. Meanwhile, his daddy is apparently a creepy stalker guy. I guess the beard and the sympathy for jihadist scum wasn’t the only thing daddy dearest adopted while B was playing soccer and helping the Taliban. He also adopted a weird obsession with a pair of cute twins.
The IRS has apparently, totally by accident misplaced two years’ worth of Lois Lerner emails. No, really. It was totally unintentional! They’re sorry. Ya know what? That’s not something I will ever believe, given the redundancy in the federal government when it comes to backing up your electronic communications. They’re there. Find them and throw that pernicious cunt in prison with the VA officials who have been sucking up taxpayer-funded bonuses via fraud and manslaughter by denying veterans health care!
Happy 239th birthday, United States Army! You and I have been through good and bad together, but I love ya!
