Marines no longer allowed to fart in Afghanistan

Ok,  when I first heard this I thought this has to be a joke.  Who doesn't like farts?  How many times have you seen a baby fart and then laugh?  They even know this is funny at a young age.  I rant quite often how our country has become so politically correct they have almost completely handcuffed us in functioning in everyday life.

There has now been an imposed ban on audible farts in Afghanistan.  Why you might ask?  Well, they might offend the Afghans.  They find farting offensive.  The first thing that comes to my mind is they can "blow it out their ass".  Google the story and you will find that I am not just blowing hot air.  This is true.

The Marines are not supposed to cuss (I wonder how they even communicate) and then no farting?  C'mon.  First of all farting is almost a sport.  It is hell of a lot more fun than some sports. I wonder why we are so worried they might be offended.  I am offended that they KILL our servicemen.  IED's and roadside bombs are pretty offensive themselves.  Maybe that's the trade no busting ass and no blowing us up.

I say we should take all their food and provide them with roasted pig to eat, put a Hustler magazine on every corner, use Andrew Dice Clay as a public speaker and serve beans for week to our military people.  I would think with the towels on their heads they could pull a flap down to cover their noses.

The bottom line, this is sad.  Sad that our country would bow down to such a ridiculous thing.  In honor and protest we should all hike a cheek and let one fly for the US Marines that are holding them in.

Bert & Ernie a marriage made where?

This past week I ran across a story on several of the news sites that there is a push for the creators of Sesame Street to "out" Bert & Ernie and make them a gay married couple. 


I would like to start off by saying that I could give a rat's ass in regard to which team you hit for.  I truly don't care, it makes me no difference.  With that being said, I feel the whole petition for this to take place on Sesame Street is a total and complete bucket of festering dung.  I am not a hate monger.  But, Sesame Street is not the place for a political statement.  There are times and places for you to make statements.  This is not one of them.  Mr. Hooper's Drug Store or in front of Oscar's trash can is not the place to waive the rainbow marriage flag.  There is no place for it.  There is no room for any political statements on the show anywhere.  It is not meant to be a political soapbox for anyone.  I don't want any marriage lessons taught on there.

I think it is great they teach about other ethnicity on the Street.  That is fantastic.  But being gay is not a ethnic background.  It doesn't make you a protected race.  The choice of what you like to do in your bedroom does not make you entitled to any special treatment or rights.  None.  we as a society have wronged many groups of people because of the color of their skin or their choice in religion.  But, your sexual preference I don't feel puts you in line for anything special.

In the Federal government there is an entire month dedicated to Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender lifestyle.  I have a problem with this.  I again refer back to this is not an ethnic heritage, but a sexual preference.  That rates you nothing extra.   I don't feel if that is your lifestyle you should be discriminated against.  I just don't think you should be treated any different or entitled to anything extra.

So that brings back down to Sesame Street.  Who says Bert and Ernie are gay?  Was the Odd Couple gay? Laverne and Shirley? Beavis and Butthead, Abbot and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Starsky and Hutch, Batman and Robin, Spongebob and Patrick, The Green Hornet and Kato? So who makes the decision they are even gay?  Maybe they are swingers and they are running Miss Piggy and the rest of the female through there like an assembly line?

The bottom line Sesame Street is not the place to promote one's personal agenda in regard to their sexual preference.  Be honest, if anyone on SS is gay, I have always thought Elmo was a little questionable!

Another candidate for a front of the line meeting with the Grim Reaper

Once again here is another prime candidate to push to the front of the line for a meeting with the Grim Reaper.  The piece of human excrement was led into the courtroom in a surgical mask and mesh bag because he had spit in the face of the court clerk during a previous court appearance.  After reading this story I felt like the police should have used a plastic bag over his head to ensure the spitter did not re-offend.

This is one of those cases that I read about and I feel there is not a just punishment for this scumbag.  There is not enough torture that would fit this crime.  In a a little more research I found out the burns on the little girl's body could have been sustained AFTER she was dead.  He not only beat her to death, tore her internal organs and anus, he burned her with a space heater after she was dead.  Here is the story from the Post.

 Convicted killer Anthony O'Neal wore a surgical mask and a white mesh bag over his head as an unusually large contingent of officers and bailiffs escorted him into a St. Louis County Courtroom Friday morning.
They were taking no chances after what happened July 15, as O'Neal was led from a court where a jury had just convicted him in the beating death of his girlfriend's 14-month-old daughter.
As Circuit Court Judge Steven Goldman was thanking the jury that day, O'Neal turned and spit in the face of court clerk Stephanie Cook.
"Did he just spit on me?" Cook, in shock, said at the time. She turned to the judge. "Did you see that?"
Hence, the mesh hood when O'Neal returned to face sentencing and a charge of contempt of court. Goldman ordered him to serve life in prison for second-degree murder and tacked on five months and 20 days for contempt.
O'Neal, 20, of Riverview, was allowed to remove the mask but not the hood after a request from defense attorney John Rogers. He argued that the devices were inhumane and that O'Neal was "docile" when they spoke earlier.
Goldman pointed out that O'Neal also had appeared "docile" throughout the trial, before he spit on the clerk.
"I don't know how you can show more disrespect than spitting on a clerk in the courtroom," Goldman told O'Neal.
The judge also had more to say about the murder of the toddler, Josie Sproaps.
O'Neal had been watching the girl alone overnight in the girl's mother's apartment in the 300 block of
Chambers Road in March 2009. When the girl's mother returned after working an overnight shift, she found the toddler dead. The child had severe bruises and burns from a space heater all over her body, head trauma and tears to her internal organs and anus.
"Over the past 40 years in St. Louis County, I don't think there's been more damage done to another human being than in this case," Goldman said. "And I thought of this a lot."
Prosecutors had sought a first-degree murder conviction but the jurors found him guilty of second-degree murder instead.
In Friday's hearing, Goldman cited other terrible crimes: the 1980 death of an elderly quadriplegic, Woodrow Wilson Elliott, who was beaten and stabbed in the head and his house set on fire, and the 1982 deaths of Donna and Gary Decker, who were shot after being kidnapped from a store parking lot.
Anthony O'Neal's mother, watching from the courtroom gallery, began muttering as Goldman talked about the other gruesome killings. "The damage has been done!" she shouted, before bailiffs led her from the courtroom.
After Goldman pronounced his sentence, guards led O'Neal past the clerk's desk. As she did last month, Cook sat at her desk. Only this time, she gave O'Neal an icy stare as he walked out.

There is no way this POS should be allowed to take another breath in peace for his hopefully short stay that he has left on this Earth.  I am still a proponent of Capital Punishment for ANY crime that harms a child.  I don't care if it is murder, sexual abuse or physical abuse.  You ride the freaking lightning!  You lose your rights and you get pushed to the front of the Reaper line.

I have never been one to shy away from expressing my beliefs or opinions.  While out to dinner with the family tonight, I saw this sticker.  I felt that it was too good to pass up.  This is the picture of the day.
