Ill-bred Bitches Gotta Eat Too

A lot of moral outrage this week over a recorded rant by a full of herself not so famous sports reporter over her car being towed;

The usual calls for her head have punctuated the airwaves and talk shows. And the usual perfunctory apology followed after being suspended for a week. First, I will address the rant, I thought it was brilliant. This woman has obviously dressed down an “inferior” before, look at how good she is at it. In a short one minute video she manages to cover all the bullet points (education, lack of skill sets, greed, intelligence, appearance, and a parting shot of fat shaming), and right off the cuff, impressive.

Like a pole dancer at the local strip club who describes her avocation as in the “entertainment industry” this woman thinks she is a real news reporter. And she thinks she is important because she is on TV. Go paint yourself in sheep’s blood and run naked down Penn. Ave at rush hour, you will get on TV.

Now, what to do with her? Don’t do anything, who cares that she is a bitch or was bitchy to some predatory tow company. Do people have to be nice to be good at their job (assuming she is good at her job since I never heard of her before)? There are rude low rent people out there, alert the media. I guess ESPN had to suspend her for a short period of time, but does she really need to get fired over this?

Fell sorry for her parents, but give the girl a break. She has a job and is paying taxes, let boorish vulgar sleeping dogs lie.

A Slave To His Ideology

Often times Hollywood is more entertaining (and often for the wrong reasons) than intended. Not only for their goofy ideas (spoon fed to them by their dem enablers) and faux sanctimony, but the sense of entitlement, of privilege, that we should not hate them because they are pretty, they really care.

One of the biggest libs in lib land is Ben Affleck, you know, the guy that called Bill Maher a racist because he (Maher) blanches at the idea that radical Muslims want him dead. Affleck is a big star and is not about to let a little unsavory family history sully his image;

As a guest on PBS genealogy program Finding Your Roots, Ben Affleck discovered one of his ancestors owned slaves and asked producers to suppress that fact, hacked Sony emails uploaded by WikiLeaks this week show.

The censorship—an apparent violation of PBS rules—is revealed in a July 2014 email thread between Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton and Finding Your Roots host Henry Louis Gates Jr. In it, the two discuss the unusual request of an unnamed “megastar” later referred to as “Batman.”

“[C]onfidentially, for the first time, one of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors—the fact that he owned slaves,” Gates writes to Lynton. “We’ve never had anyone ever try to censor or edit what we found. He’s a megastar. What do we do?”

In his reply, Lynton recommends removing the material as long as “no one [else] knows,” before writing “all things being equal I would definitely take it out.”

You remember Gates, another one of those elitist snobs who thinks it is racist for a cop to ask him a few questions. I guess Van Jones or Charles Ogletree were busy.

The beauty of this little incident is that it single handedly touches all the bases in this grand slam of liberal hypocrisy, to wit;

Image over reality- its not what is, its what is presented

White guilt run amok- when you are liberal and white, you personally feel responsible for every perceived injustice that happened from the dawn of time until now, perpetrated by a white man. And as a liberal white man, his credentials must constantly be renewed. It matters not that hundreds of thousands of folks in the south owned slaves, it matters not that even blacks owned slaves, it matters not that when stacked up against the history of slavery with other nations and empires, we were relative pikers in the practice, and it matters not that even within Africa tribes owned other tribes, dealing in slavery way before the white man ever dreamed of the idea, all that matters is the liberal white man is he will be forever tainted by his whiteness, he can never be forgiven the deeds of others of his skin pigment.

The Clinton Doctrine- there really is different rules for different classes, rules for normal folk, and rules for nobility (less rules, of course). The hoity-toity (of which Affleck resides) get treated differently, they are owed this special treatment by right of celebrity. Something that has never been done before (like allowing a guest to dictate what facts will be allowed and what will be omitted), becomes ,”Well, he is a big shot, lets make an exception”.

Black Indignation is a one way street. The cop that hassled Gates must be a racist because he was a cop, but Affleck, even though he was spawned from a slave holder, he gets taught the secret handshake and is allowed into the club because he is a lib just like us. Racism (and the outrage spawned from perceived racism) is always conditional on who (or what class) is the victim. Blacks can not be racists by virtue of their skin color, liberals can not be racists as long as they understand that the cost of them being white can never ever be fully repaid, that charge card will always be maxed out.

Moral equivalence- actions will always be viewed through the prism of race, and as such, morality is ancillary;

Eventually, Gates acknowledges that fulfilling the request “would be a violation of PBS rules, actually, even for Batman” and “would embarrass him and compromise our integrity,” concluding, “Once we open the door to censorship, we lose control of the brand.”

And yet, even these considerations were suborned in the name of racial justice. Censorship is allowed if it perpetuates the cause. Integrity, rules, both guidelines to be navigated (or ignored) dependent upon the message being delivered. It is the motive that counts, everything else is malleable.

Naturally all this drama happens on PBS.

Who knows, that ancient ancestor might have been George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, even Andy Jackson, no matter, disregard everything admirable this man had done through his lifetime, being a slave owner is all that is important.

Hollywood Gets It Wrong Again

The world is an absolute mess; the ME on fire in some part due to Obama’s retreat, Iran getting a guarantee on its nuclear development as long as it is in a secret underground facility with no meddling allowed by Israel, and Iran solidifying a Persian Empire with take overs of Yemen, Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria, all the while pulling Obama’s chain with meaningless executive nuclear agreements, but this post is about none of that.

Periodically I look at alternatives to cable, what’s out there to fill my TV needs so I can 86 my cable provider. Live events, the ability to DVR, and my eclectic tastes always bring me back. One channel that I can’t part with is TCM. Sports, movies, and Foxnews, what else is there to watch? Maybe some netflix originals, more on that in a minute. I have always liked old movies and a unique feature of old movies is that everyone smoked. Hollywood had everyone smoking because they thought they were trailblazers, they thought smoking was admirable, that the folks would think these actors were cool and would want to watch them, but mostly they connected smoking with glamour, they were wrong.

Today smoking is out, profanity is in, they are still getting it wrong. Lately, in between March Madness Games (teaser, more on that in a bit) I have been watching the new Netflix original series Bloodline, it is really good. Without going in to specifics, it is not about guys in the military, in prison, or in gangs, it is about an ordinary family (with not so ordinary secrets) and yet every 4th word out of their mouths (all mouths, kids included) is f bombs. Not even through the first episode the smoking similarity was obvious. Does Hollywood think that ordinary folks talk like this or that ordinary folks watching this will think dialogue like this is cool or emblematic in some way? Yes, it is a minor irritant, and detracts little from the stellar quality, but why do they do it?

I don’t think I live a pampered sheltered life, but the only time that I ever hear f bombs or profanity in general is on TV, I never (hardly ever) come across it in real life. I am out and about every day interacting with my fellow earth dwellers, is Hollywood the only place where folks swear like sailors on a regular basis? Even in the blogosphere or this site for instance, writers manage to go whole paragraphs without it, why can’t Hollywood write 3 lines without any f bombs? Is it me? I predict that, just like the smoking prevalence of the old movies, when future generations looks at our current entertainment fare, quizzical expressions and scratching of heads will result when they analyze the apparent appeal of lazy speech.

In the event this post garners no interest, I admitted it was a personal pet peeve, I will hijack my own post, and ask the most important question; Can Kentucky be beaten?

Hollywood elites shows why they are douchebags

Clint Eastwood made a pro-US/pro-military movie, and like with everything the guy does, it is kicking ass and taking names, and as expected it is pissing off the liberal cunts that hate both and they are whining about it.

The problem is that these liberal elites think the idea of a good war movie is one where America and Americans are painted as the bad guys, or at a minimum as dolts that do evil things because they are too stupid to know better, and anything that says otherwise, especially when it ends up earning at the box office unlike the crap they produce and like, needs to be cock blocked. This is a move made out of desperation and envy, and what they are really questioning isn’t the content of the movie, but the fact evil Americans prefer the stuff that makes America look good over the bullshit they want to peddle.

Let me remind you that this is not the only genre of movies that Hollywood struggles with: religion movies produce the same results and problems for them. They are furious that movies of any kind that contradict the liberal narrative and idiotic beliefs does well. They have pissed away millions making junk movies with the liberal message only to watch them flop. The narrative then was America had no stomach for this stuff. Then someone like Eastwood puts out a movie on the subject and the thing rocks, crumbling the whole house of cards they have spent so much efforts erecting.

Hollywood’s problem is that liberal douchebags have been trying to push the liberal agenda in the drivel they pass off a deep cinema, and they have failed to garner the support they believe they are due, and anything that gets in the way of that narrative – America is bad, Americans are bad if they are not liberal pussies, and that the drivel the left beliefs in is what is real despite the evidence to the contrary – must be attacked. Fuck them. The best way to do has been laid out for us too: watch the stuff that is good and ignore the liberal drivel. Money talks, and their bullshit can walk. The fuckwads in Hollywood have tried to kill off anyone and anything that doesn’t conform to the liberal agenda, and people like Eastwood and the movies he makes will always be attacked for failing to comply.

The tears of liberal pansies are ambrosia. Enjoy them. Go Clint!

Anarchy Is Right

It has been a great ride, but tonight it ends, carnage and mayhem to follow.

For those interested, I wanted to throw up a quick post before the last episode of SOA, we can discuss any prognostications out there or what you want to see happen once the dust settles.

I have always had a fondness for the show, for several reasons, not least of all because I have traveled the San Joaquin valley extensively, have ridden Harley’s for a good portion of my life, have conversed and shared beers with ex motorcycle gang members, and understand, to some degree, the life and affection for clubs like this.

Once Tara died in the last episode of last season, I pretty much knew Sutter was going to blow the whole thing up this season, leaving no one unscathed or unharmed. But what we have seen so far, holy crap.

Two characters I have grown to love and am sorry to see them go, Juice and Unser. Unser should have gone all doped up on Morphine dying of cancer, or at least taking a stray bullet for Jemma. For Jax to gun him down like that, ouch. Like a son who craved a father’s love but could never get it, as a last ditch effort for redemption, Juice went out in the end helping the club.

Throughout the show, Jax has been a sympathetic figure, trying as he might, doing all the wrong things for the right reasons, hoping to find his moral compass, but never really willing to do the heavy lifting. Almost all of his decisions could be rationalized, the greater good and all that, but this year he went totally off the rails and now is deserving of a bullet in the head. This year I was actually rooting for anarchy and the expansion of the collateral damage circle. I expected Jemma and Nero to live out their days, helping Wendi raise the two kids, trying to minimize the damage and the trauma already inflicted on them.

If a Charming chapter of the Son’s can exist, Chibs is the natural selection for pres, although Happy is such a loveable guy (smiley face tattoos on abdomen for every kill, classic). Sure, the love affair between Chibs and the local sheriff, ridiculous, but a minor distraction.

So, on to the ending tonight. What I don’t want to some Dexter like let down, an ending so preposterously stupid and un fulflling that fans are left wanting bloodshed for the writers. Sutter has many options here. Jax can survive, booted out of the club, of course, this is a given for killing Jury, earning a meager living as some low paid mechanic somewhere but having a life with Wendi and his two kids, having to live with the bad decisions he made in life and how miserably he failed at fulfilling the vision John laid out for him in his manuscript. Or, Marks could put a bullet in his head, not unwarranted.

I gonna be pissed if anything happens to either Wendi or Nero, two folks who have tried to walk the straight and narrow. Somebody needs to raise those two boys. Although now that Jemma is gone, Nero might just be the odd man out, hope not.

Who Is The Dumbest Person With His Own Show?

Hint: He is probably on MSNBC

It is an interesting question to pose. Ass backwards ideology, misguided white guilt, bleeding heart progressivism, none of these by themselves qualify,wrongheaded as they are. Dumb is dumb, and like porn with the Supreme Court, we all know it when we see it. Some tells easily identified; a vocabulary that could fit in a shoebox, someone bereft of an original thought or concept, someone who can’t read, even a teleprompter with great big letters and itty bitty words, and someone who can’t project past the usual fall back of either racism or hate.

My candidate has the lowest rated show, like ever. He filled a much need quota over at MSNBC, and still delights with this Bill Buckley like mastery of the English language.

Never one to over prepare, he spends the majority of his air time parroting the president;

Granted he does not possess the proper Obama finger point, but as least he keeps the phrases he has to repeat down to a doable 3 or 4 word sentence. Some would say it is difficult to prepare a nightly show when you are constantly responding to racial dog whistles everywhere, jetting off to foment a little racial insurrection.

One feather in his cap, quite a coup if you think about it, was his sit down with Putin last week. Some real insight was obtained into the way an autocrat thinks. You can check it out here.

That Putin guy means business.

I Thought “Bossy” Was Verboten

It would be like plucking low hanging fruit to use a Nazi analogy when describing the all out blitz being used to deceiveconvince the folks on the efficacy of Obamacare. When you have unlimited funds to use, an unlimited and willing MSM to smooth the edges and run interference, and a whole generation (give or take) of voters willing to be persuaded by the Hollywood elites, how tough is it to convince them of anything?

It wasn’t bad enough to manipulate the usual Hollywood enablers into spreading the message, now they got their moms roped into the conspiracy;

How great would a PSA be to have a mom of someone famous say ,”You know, I raised my son to think for himself, to not be part of the crowd, convinced by groupthink and just another sheeple. As parents we love this country, are proud of this country, and understand that along with freedom not being free, the proper maintenance of democratic republic requires an informed populace. We taught our son to weigh the issues and make up his own mind, and that is why he thinks Obama is a lying bozo and his signature hunk a junk is not good for America. Too bad the rest of the Hollywood parents pussied out on their parental responsibilities and taught their kids that is is better to thought cool then be responsible”.

No, you nag me because, like all smelly progressives, you think you know better than me, what’s good for me. Butt out, OK? Go peddle your nonsense somewhere else.

La variété est le piment de la vie.

It really is an unfair advantage, and the main reason they eat our lunch in most elections. It could be that they are more devious, more conniving (they are most certainly better liars, some things just take practice to perfect) or maybe they are more adept at appealing to the baser instincts of their constituents, whatever it is the dems know how to set a table. This week we have been cataloging the most outrageous examples of human contortion, namely turning the negative of implementation of their ACA costing 2.5 million jobs into a positive, after all, who wants to be saddled with a job anyway? Much better to have more leisure time to pursue your dreams, get a hobby, spend more time with the family, slug out, all on the tax payers dime.

Well, they are doing it again. Tired of being the brunt of the jokes, being snickered at, and not being allowed to play in any of the reindeer games, the dems have decided to adopt a totally European solution. When your leader is looking impotent, inject a little virility in to the mix, make him look more masculine (for Obama that is no small feat), more worldly;

French media goes crazy over rumor that President Obama and Beyonce are having an affair

As the French say ,”je ne sais quoi”.

Somehow I pegged him for a Katy Perry kind a guy, someone with a nicer rack.

How much gravitas was Clinton able to generate with all his dalliances? And speaking of Clinton, with Hillary fever just starting to percolate, that dem spin machine did a nice number with this tidbit. It matters nothing that she denied it, just getting it out there in circulation, the deed is done. That rumor alone put more spring in Bill’s step, not since the Jennifer Flower days.

They have done a masterful job on Obama’s image, slayer of both terrorists and unsuspecting women. I see a book of poetry in the offing, that and a Dos Equis commercial. Putin, you better get busy.

Let them eat cake!

If you doubt that our elite masters think we are serfs better served by the mushroom treatment (kept in the dark and fed shit about what they are up to) and that they care little about the pain their policies are causing us, you need to but look at how they are at work hiding their lavish parties:

There was a party in the East Room of the White House Saturday night, an affair attended by a reported 500 people, a lavish celebration with celebrities galore, appearances by some of the world’s most popular performers, lots of dancing and powerful government officials, including, of course, the most powerful official of all, the President of the United States. And the White House wants to make sure you know as little as possible about it.

The event was First Lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party. According to reports in People, the Chicago Tribune, TMZ, US Magazine, and elsewhere, among of the attendees were, in no particular order: Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, James Taylor, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Janelle Monae, Mary J. Blige, Angela Bassett, Courtney Vance, Herbie Hancock, Samuel L. Jackson, Grant Hill, Alonzo Mourning, Ledisi, Emmett Smith, Star Jones, Al Roker, Steve Harvey, Magic Johnson, Billie Jean King, Michael Jordan, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Gayle King, Ahmad Rashad, Kal Penn, and Ashley Judd. Among the current and former government officials attending were Joe Biden, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Susan Rice, Eric Holder, and Kathleen Sebelius.

It’s not easy to enforce discipline on successful, wealthy, and famous people used to having their own way. But the White House apparently did not want to see photos of the first lady’s glittery gala circulating around the Internet. So it imposed a strict rule: No cellphones. “Guests were told not to bring cellphones with them, and there was a cellphone check-in area for those who did,” reported the Chicago Tribune. “Signs at the party told guests: No cellphones, no social media.” People magazine added: “Guests had been greeted by a ‘cell phone check’ table where they deposited their camera phones on arrival and it was understood that this was not an occasion for Tweeting party photos or Facebooking details.” The publications cited sources who insisted on anonymity for fear of White House reprisal.

“So great was the secrecy surrounding the party,” the Tribune reported, “that guests were handed an invitation — on their way out, the sources said.”

So far, the crackdown appears to have been a success. Although a few attendees have tweeted that they had a great time, or that they danced until their feet could take no more, the Web has not been filled with photos of the first lady’s extravagant celebration. Perhaps some will appear; maybe the White House will even release an official photo. But it’s unlikely the public will see much.

Can you imagine the media reaction if a Republican did something like this? And Moochelle sure is trying hard to play her role of Marie Antoinette to the hilt. The next time you hear these class warriors preaching about inequality, social justice, or whatever other bullshit they usually drag out to raise the hackles on the envious & jealous, remember that they are part of the .000001%.

The Ducks stay put

I guess when the media moguls at A&E did the math, they realized that “Stupid is as stupid” does, because they are letting the Duck-man back on the show:

Phil Robertson, the patriarch of A&E’s Duck Dynasty clan who was suspended from his hit reality series on Dec. 18 following some incendiary comments about gay people, won’t be put on hiatus after all.

The network and the Robertson family announced Friday that Phil will still be part of the series — and since he didn’t miss any filming, his temporary suspension will have no effect on the upcoming fifth season.

Without that show A&E is dead in the water. It was obvious how this was gonna play out, and the rednecks that the left so loves to hate and make fun of won. HAH! What a smart bunch these progressives are, huh?
