Guilty Pleasure

OK, so I have something to admit to all of you.  Whenever this song comes on the radio, I crank it up.



Don't judge me!

So there's this guy at work

His name is Juan.  That's not his whole name, but that's all the name I feel comfortably putting out online.

Juan has been in this country for over two decades.  He came up from a Central American country, and he always wanted to be an American.  He wants to open up his own business and live the American dream.

This past Wednesday, he took and passed his citizenship test.  He is now a full citizen of the United States of America.

If the GOP caves and pushes Amnesty for all the illegal border jumpers, they will have shit all over Juan and every other immigrant who followed the rules, did what they had to do, and became citizens.

Think about that when you're contacting your congresscritters.

Damaged

So, Lena Dunham is experiencing a melt-down, caused in part by her new book, wherein she relates multiple episodes of behavior from her that can only be described as sexually abusing her sister.  I won't go into too many details, but they're out there if anyone cares to read it.  Truth Revolt put excerpt of her book online, and now she's threatening legal action against them for...  um...  accurately quoting what she wrote.

Now see, if Truth Revolt had made up the fact that Lena Dunham had sexually molested her little sister, I could see the lawsuit working.  But by accurately quoting her?  Nope.

In any case, the sister in question (who is now a lesbian) used Twitter to try and defend her sister:

Grace responded on Twitter: “heteronormativity deems certain behaviors harmful, and others ‘normal’; the state and media are always invested in maintaining that.”

Did you get that?  It's not a problem that Lena Dunham sexually abused her sister, it's "hetronormativity" that deems it bad, and "the state and media" don't want you to think otherwise!

If you do a search for Dunham's father and his "artwork", you suddenly realize that this entire family is screwed up in their collective heads.  And I mean completely jacked up.  When Daddy Dearest is painting "art" that looks like the drawing of a naked woman as done by a twelve-year old (imagine growing up in a house filled with that crap), and Mommy liked to have a picture of herself with her legs spread featured in the house, Lena described her own actions towards her sister as a sexual predator, and it's just "hetronormativity" that's keeping you down, man!

I really, honestly have pity for Lena Dunham.  She was so screwed up by her parents that she didn't have a chance at living a normal happy life.  But that pity doesn't make me want her to go away any less - she's still a diseased whore, corrupting modern culture even further every day that she's on the public stage.  It's just that we now know why she's the way she is.

I wish I had a magical cup

So that I could collect all the tears from the Democrat Media Complex today and drink them with my dinner.  Ah well, I'll settle for scotch instead.

Election Day

Go Vote!  Remember, if you like freedom, don't vote Democrat!

"Smart" Diplomacy!

I'd say Poland has this Obama fellow figured out.

Yesterday I spoke with a top Polish MoD official, a man of sober and strongly pro-American views whom I’ve known for years. Referring to this week’s needless White House crisis with Israel, another American ally who has doubts about the current administration, he noted, “I didn’t need the Beltway media to tell me who the real chickens--- is.”  
"They really have no idea what they are doing,” he opined about Obama and his national security staff, “and we know it. You have no idea how many promises we’ve been given, even by the President himself, but there’s never any follow-up, it’s all talk. He thinks he’s on Oprah.” 
When I asked if he thought America would come to Poland’s aid in a crisis, he said laconically, “I’d flip a coin.”

Our foreign relations are going to be damaged beyond belief by Obama.  I only hope they're not damaged beyond repair.  But nobody can say the Poles don't know the reality of the situation.



Daylight "Savings" Time.

So, even as late as last Friday, I was riding to work in daylight and riding home in daylight.

Yesterday, I rode to work in daylight and rode home in the dark.  First time I've had to use the lights on my bike.

Tell me again about how we're "saving" daylight?

Gurgle

One of the joys of living in Los Angeles is the constant pollution.  There's no escaping it; it surrounds you, you live in it, you suffer with it.  In my case, my allergies have been through the roof for the past two years.  Breathing is interesting some days.

So when you get rain, like we did Friday night and Saturday, and it clears out the air, suddenly your body doesn't know what to do.  But after it goes through it's period of shock, it tries to expel all the crap that's built up from fighting the pollution for so long.  So I've been hacking up lung biscuits yesterday and today.

Going for my run this morning, I blew a snotwad out of my sinuses that I'm pretty sure weighed more than my little dog.  And when I talk, I gurgle, until I can clear the crap out of my chest and talk normally.

Nine more months.  Nine.  And then I can escape.  I think the people who move here willingly all need a mental evaluation.

O Salutaris Hostia



One of the greatest sins the Novus Ordo Catholic church ever did was throwing away their musical legacy of praise.

I think the music you find in a modern Catholic church is designed to drive the people away, rather than allow them to sing in praise.  Fine, you go sing some hippy-dippy song from a 1970's musician who's more interested in putting five different time signatures into a song rather than how it actually sounds.  I'll be in my traditional Latin Mass singing Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus".




Daylight savings time

Fall back!  FALL BACK!

Unless you're in Arizona, who doesn't give a shit about DST.
