>I Didn’t Say It……..

>Peter Fonda, on how the president is “a fucking traitor” for his handling of the BP oil spill:

“I’m training my grandchildren to use long-range rifles. For what purpose? Well, I’m not going to say the words ‘Barack Obama’, but….it’s more of a thought process than an actuality, but we are heading for a major conflict between the haves and the have nots. I came here many years ago with a biker movie and we stopped a war. Now, it’s about starting the world. I prefer to not to use the words, ‘let’s stop something’. I prefer to say, ‘let’s start something, let’s start the world’.”

Wow.
Um, yeah, that whole linking of arming grandchildren to shoot and president Obama, sounds a little threatening, dontcha think, Pete?
I agree that the gulf between the rich and everyone else is goring ever wider, but arming anyone is not the solution.
Put the teabags away and take a nap, Pete.

Michelle Obama, slyly, maybe, mentioning to gay families in speech to graduates at West Point:

“I ask you to remember that family has always been a centerpiece of our American story. No matter how you’ve grown up, no matter how you define family, all of you have someone in your life who believed in you and pushed you.”

No matter how you define family.
Two parents, mommie and daddy.
One parent, mommie or daddy.
Two parents, mommie and mom, or daddy and dad.
It shouldn’t make a difference how your family looks, all that matters is that they love you and nurture you and help you through life.
You go, Michelle.

Linda Harvey, of the Southern Poverty Law Center-certified hate group, Mission America, claiming that GLSEN [Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network] advocates for….wait for it….pedophilia:

“GLSEN poses as a ‘gay rights’ and ‘anti-bullying’ group for youth, going to bat for them on issues like discrimination. But GLSEN is actually a threat to children, unless parents don’t care about their kids being drawn into early deviant sexual activity, or learning to approve of sinful, God-defying behaviors without the parents’ knowledge. To put it bluntly, when you think GLSEN, think ‘children and bodily fluids.’ Yes, it’s that bad. Behind GLSEN’s window-dressing rhetoric about safe schools, bigotry, ‘homophobia’, oppression, and concerns about harassment, lies the reality: advocacy of actual homosexual sex, sometimes implicit, sometimes very explicit, even for young kids. And sometimes it’s with adults.”

So this ‘education network’ which seeks to help all kids understand what it means to be gay, and to grow up accepting and tolerant and understanding of people with different orientations and gender identities, is actually a front for pedophiles?
Linda, you need to get a large spoon and dig your head out of your ass.
You cannot advocate sex. Sex is; homosexual or heterosexual. It is. Unless you think that other groups advocate for heterosexual sex?
And GLSEN has nothing to do with pedophilia.
Seriously, get that spoon and start digging.

Charles Barkley, on gay players in the NBA:

“First of all, every player has played with gay guys. It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say: ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play.”

Nice to hear another POV from a professional athlete.
Nicer than Kobe Bryant and Joakim Noah, with their faggot comments.
It shouldn’t matter anywhere, at work, at play, what your sexual orientation might be. It should only matter that you can do the job, or play the game.

Veteran NYC sports radio announcer Jared Max, coming out on his radio show:

“Are we ready to have our sports information delivered by someone who is gay? We’re going to find out. Because for the last 16 years I’ve been living a free life among all my close friends and family. But I’ve been living behind what is a gargantuan size secret in the sports world. I am gay. Yeah, Jared Max, the sports guy with one of the most familiar voices in New York sports isn’t quite like the majority.”

Welcome out, Jared, welcome out.
And you are simply showing the world, as has Don Lemons and Rick Welts and Will Sheridan and Scott Norton–who’ve all come out in recent weeks–that we are all kinds of people, doing all kinds of jobs, and our sexual orientation should make no difference at all.
Naturally, you’ll be receiving the complimentary toaster oven and copy of the Gay Agenda.

Director Lars von Trier, who has been banned by Cannes, for his Hitler remarks:

“I really wanted to be a Jew and then I found out that I was really a Nazi because my family was German….Which also gave me some pleasure…What can I say? I understand Hitler…I think I understand the man, he’s not what you would call a good guy. But I understand much about him. And I sympathize with him a little bit. I’m not for the Second World War. I’m not against Jews. I’m very much for Jews. No not too much, because the Israelis, a pain in the ass…Okay, I’m a Nazi.”

This is a prime example of someone who doesn’t think before he speaks.
I got nothin’ else on this one.
It’s too disturbing……
Naturally, shortly after this vomitous statement, Von Trier apologized: “If I have hurt someone this morning by the words I said at the press conference, I sincerely apologize. I am not antisemitic or racially prejudiced in any way, nor am I a nazi.”
M’kay.

Maggie Gallagher, on The Gay Agenda:

“Surrendering on the legal definition of ‘civil marriage’ is not a prelude to winning any of those other deeper battles. It is a prelude to an ever deeper surrender to the main idea now being propagated: if you believe in the message of Genesis, as repeated by Jesus—that marriage from the beginning has been the union of male and female, husbands and wives called to give themselves to each other and to their children—then you are a bad person. You are like a racist. You should be ashamed and shamed in public. You should, ideally, lose your job.”

Here’s another thing, Mags, Jesus is love. I don’t think he’d want you all, standing up and denigrating an entire group of people in his name.
Sure, you can toss around specific Bible passages that you say bolster your claims, but there are just as many passages that don’t.
If you boil it down to it’s purest form, God is love.
And what you’re doing is not.
See, you can dislike me for being gay, and think your Bible damns me to hell for it, but you cannot use your misunderstanding of the word of God to legislate against me. That is no very Christ-like, is it?

Actor Armie Hammer, on the “weird hype” surrounding his man-on-man kiss with Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood’s J Edgar Hoover movie:

“It’s the same kind of thing as if you walk onto a set and they hand you a machine gun and [say], ‘Shoot this like you know what you’re doing’ — you can’t grab that thing and go, ‘uh…’ — you kind of have to go, ‘Okay, I know what I’m doing,’ and you’ve just got to go for it. It wasn’t that weird — I have never kissed a guy — it’s not something I’m going to do in my private life, but at the end of it I was, like, man, there is a lot of weird hype.”

It is kind of odd, because when an actor plays a murderer or a rapist or pedophile or adulterer, the press never seems to assume they are like that in real life.
But play gay, and everyone assumes you’re gay.
And kiss a guy on film and there’s this almost juvenile nervous giggle that permeates every interview, like you’re expected to say that the kiss turned you gay. Or loudly profess your heterosexuality.
That said, the idea of seeing Armie Hammer kissin’ a guy has got me a bit riled up, so to speak.

>Bar Fights. Date Nights. Women’s Rights.

>

Up in Ohio, Warren County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating whether an attack that left a young man bloodied, his nose shattered, is a hate crime; the victim is gay.

Ronnie Robertson’s nose is broken, he has deep cuts and scratches around his eyes and cheeks. All this because he chose to go out with friends to a so-called ‘straight’ bar.
Kelly Coffey says her friends, a mix of gay and straight people chose Tabby’s bar to play sand volleyball, but were harassed by a man who continued to ask who in the group was gay. When her brother finally admitted he was gay, the man “lost it, went crazy and started attacking my brother and pushing him out of the bar.”
Two women, Sarah Goldsberry, and Tammy Lingle ,were arrested on the spot and charged with felony assault, and disrupting police business. They say it was just an ordinary bar fight. The sheriff’s office is reviewing the security tapes to look at what happened and for the two men also involved.
Saddest of all, Ohio’s hate crime laws do not include gays and lesbians as a protected class.
So, if you’re gay and in Ohio, you’re fair game for a beatin’.
Be warned.

This story, well, not the story, but the Repug reaction to it, pisses me off.

Here’s the gist:
During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama made a promise to Michelle, that if he won the election he’d take her to New York to see a Broadway play. And this past weekend he did just that.

The president and first lady took a date night flight to New York late Saturday afternoon, aides and media in tow, and, after dining at Blue Hill, a West Village restaurant, the Obamas headed to the Belasco Theater to see “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.”

As the motorcade drove through the city, crowds of people waved as the Obamas passed. Some cheered. Cab drivers opened their doors and stood on the frames of their taxis to glimpse the president and first lady.

Sounds lovely, no?

Not to the Repugs who blasted Obama for using taxpayer money for his date night.

Seriously? This is all you got, Repugs? Date night rantings? Where were your rants when, during the first eight months of his presidency, before the 9/11 attacks, when George W. Bush spent roughly 30% of his presidency on vacation?

Where was your outrage then?

Oh yeah, outrage is partisan. My bad.

A 51-year-old Johnson County man, Scott P. Roeder, could be charged with murder and aggravated assault in the shooting of abortion doctor George Tiller. Tiller was shot inside his church on Sunday. The gunman also threatened to shoot two men who tried to apprehend him.

Roeder was arrested about three hours later, three hundred miles away.

Now, this is what I don’t get. These pro-Life folks who have no concern for the life of anyone other than a fetus. I mean, if you’re going to call yourself pro-Life, at least be pro life. And that means the life of anyone, whether it be an unborn child or an adult with whom you have some grievance, whether it be because they are Pro-Choice, or even a prisoner on death row.

How is the life of this doctor, of any human being, any less valuable than the life of the unborn child.

If, as the Pro-life groups are always saying, a life is a life, then why don’t they care about life after birth?

Now, before anyone gets all hot’n’bothered and twisted up, let me say that I consider myself a pro-Choice individual, but also one who is against abortion. I just wish woman had more options, from early sex education classes so they can prepare themselves for having sex and all that that entails; from support for her decision to give up the child if that’s her choice; and support for her if she chooses abortion. And what about prevention?
I don’t think any woman takes the thought of abortion lightly.

But it is her choice. Choice.

>One Of Time’s 100 Most Influential People

“Our success was made possible with the encouragement of a diligent parent or teacher, a grandparent who told us we had real talent, an older sibling who paved the way and set a good example, a scholarship or grant that created an unexpected opportunity, or a neighbor or community leader who told us to dream big. That’s certainly been the case in my own life…As global leaders, let’s not underestimate the power each of us has to change the world for someone -– and let us not be afraid to try.”

More Real Housewives of New York madness. Kelly Killoren Bensimon–the crazy behemoth in a micro-mini one–has lost her latest modeling job. Poor botox-Kelly, boyfriend-beating-Kelly, Bethenny-hater-Kelly, Arthritis-is-cute-Kelly is “no longer modeling for Saks Fifth Avenue. She was the face of the spring catalog but hasn’t booked any further gigs with them.”

Of course, Saks says this has nothing to do with her arrest for smacking down her boy-toy, but I say, Kelly, honey, karma is a bitch….and so are you.

Now, I say this from a secure location, because that bitch scares me!

I am not one of those people that believes cops are the bad guys, and that you can’t trust them, but this whole Ryan Moats story chaps my hide.

Rushing his family to the hospital, 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats rolled through a red light and, after they arrived at the hospital, a Dallas police officer pulled their SUV over outside the emergency room. Moats and his wife explained that her mother was dying inside the hospital. “You really want to go through this right now?” Moats pleaded. “My mother-in-law is dying. Right now!”
Officer Robert Powell, 25, was unmoved. He spent long minutes writing Moats a ticket and threatened him with arrest. “I can screw you over,” the officer said. “I’d rather not do that.”
His mother in law passed away while the officer forced Moats to remain in his car as he checked for outstanding warrants.
Now, I’m all for law and order, but even i know, if I see someone run a red light and a stop sign or two, while heading into a hospital, that maybe there is some kind of emergency. And then this gung-ho police officer refuses to listen to the Moats, to the nurses who came out and asked that Moats be let go, to a security guard who asked the same question, and even to another Dallas police officer who arrived on the scene.

All this hoopla over Michelle Obama touching the Queen irks me, because, if you look at the video, if you read the story, you’ll see that it was the Queen who placed her hand on Michelle’s back first, and then Michelle put her arm around the Queen,

She didn’t put Her Royal Highness in a chokehold people! It was a gesture of kindness.

Build a bridge and get over it.

Star Jones was on Oprah this week talking about being fat and being a liar. Remember when Star started dropping the pounds faster than you could say Burger King Double Whopper? And she said she did it through, ahem, Pilate’s and portion control…and then a few years later she admitted to gastric bypass, and NO Pilate’s or portion control?

Well, on The View the next day the gals were talking about Star, and Barbara was saying she wishes her well, and Elizabeth was saying how good Star looks, and then all eyes turned to Joy, who said:

“I think I’ll bypass making any comments!”

Loved it!

This one may get me killed.

Madonna was denied the right to adopt a little girl from Malawi. And I think it may have been a good decision. Just because someone has buckets of money doesn’t make them a good parent. Just because someone is famous doesn’t make them Mom Of The Year.
“The decision came down to residency requirement and the fact that the judge believes she was being well taken care of in the orphanage,” said Zione Ntaba, a spokeswoman for the Malawi Justice Department. “For the Malawians, the fact that the child is at an orphanage, is being taken care of and is going through the school education system, that does qualify as the best interests of a child.”
I am not a fan of Madonna. I know, bad gay man. Bad, Gay. Man. But I have watched her career and it seems to me that Madonna does nothing without publicity, and I don’t mean because she’s some superstar to some people so she is always in the news, I mean, everything she does is for publicity.

The Sex Book was publicity.
The documentary was publicity.
The English accent was….well, because she’s nuts.
The adoption of the David was for publicity.
And I think her attempts at adoption again are for publicity.
